Uranus Direct: Predicting The Unpredictable, Bearing The Unbearable (Plus Celebrity Updates!)

posted by Matthew Currie

beliefnet astrology matthew currie uranusUranus stops its retrograde motion and goes forward next week, grinding to a halt and going the right way on the 17th.  Any astrologer can tell you that Uranus rules eccentricity and sudden, unexpected events. If David Bowie was an astrologer, his famous line from Changes… “turn and face the strange (Ch- Ch- Ch- Changes!)“… would undoubtedly have been directed at Uranus.

Even to an astronomer, Uranus is kind of wacky. Whereas the other planets have their North and South Poles pointing more or les the same way as the Sun’s, Uranus points its North Pole at the Sun all the time, as if it were rolling around the Sun on its side. Its magnetosphere is much stronger on the North than on the South. Its internal heat is much lower than that of Neptune, which is similar yet much further from the Sun. Jupiter may rule “humor” in general, but it seems Uranus is the Class Clown of the Solar System.

So how is an astrologer (or anyone who wants nice, predictable outcomes) supposed to deal with the energy Uranus provides? Dealing with Uranus Energy is arguably more important now than it has been in a generation, as the Uranus-Pluto Square will now continue to climb back to the exact degree, with another peak hitting in April. Telling people to “expect the unexpected” during a Uranus transit is both generally good advice and infuriatingly unhelpful. That’s not astrology’s fault…. that’s human nature. Despite what many may think, properly applied astrology really does work (hello, James Randi Educational Foundation, I’m looking at you when I say that)… but that doesn’t take “the human factor” out of the fine art of prediction at all.

For example: suppose you know someone who regularly drinks and drives two or three times a week, every week. It’s easy to predict that, eventually, there will be an accident and/or serious legal consequences as a result. But can one really say that will be next week, specifically? Certainly based on probability theory, you can’t (probably). But when it comes to specific risk factors becoming a bigger-than-usual issue? That’s where Uranus shines.  Anyone could have told Paul Walker that street racing was a bad idea, but an astrologer taking a detailed look at his chart could have told him it was an especially bad idea at the end of November.

So keeping this principle in mind, let’s have a look at how the Uranus Station will likely be affecting some famous people I’ve written about before (with links to the original articles I wrote about them in), now and in the next six months or so as Uranus crawls along from 9 to 16 degrees Aries. Uranus plays a strong role with both “fame” and “celebrity,” so why not? As for your own chart? Why not ask an astrologer?

Kanye West: Kanye will continue to be a self-centered self-parody. In fact, you can expect even more of that from him: Uranus will be trine his Sun-Jupiter conjunction (which already made for a healthy-sized Ego). What makes this transit especially interesting is that Uranus will be square his 7th House cusp — his marriage, in other words — and trine its ruler Saturn. Under those circumstances, it’s hard not to imagine bigger and better (?) headlines around his marriage to Kim Kardashian. Meanwhile, Uranus will be trine Kim’s 7th House cusp, so we’ll likely be exposed to more horrors from the happy couple in the months to come. BONUS POINTS: If you recall my Lunar Eclipse Forecast for October, you’ll recall I said something about to Kanye about Kim’s “ego demands (going) through the roof in the next year.” It was shortly after that they filmed the video for Bound 2. Score one for the astrologer!

 

Alec Baldwin: As Uranus approaches the conjunction to his Sun and the sextile to his Mars, we can expect his Ego to get pretty inflated too. The big problem for Alec is that Pluto is also approaching the exact square to his Sun. We don’t have a time of birth for Alec, but if my hunch is correct that he has Leo rising, this could be bad news for his marriage, especially given the Saturn square to his Venus that’s upcoming mid-year that I noted in my previous entry about him.

 

Miley Cyrus: I’m sick of Miley Cyrus. Aren’t you sick of Miley Cyrus? Her attention-baiting at the expense of anyone taking her seriously will likely continue until Miley Cyrus is sick of Miley Cyrus. With her Uranus Square about to kick in, and then Saturn stationing on her Pluto and close to her Moon in March, that might actually happen.

 

Chris Brown: With transiting Uranus sextile his natal Jupiter (ruler of his 5th House… children), his girlfriend is now allegedly sporting a baby bump. And with that Uranus squaring his Neptune (and transiting Pluto conjunct it, in the 5th), he’s still in drug rehab, and still trying to patch things up with his mother. Here’s hoping that Uranus passing through his 9th House… his Higher Mind… he finds the strength and energy to deal with his old ghosts in new ways.
