Can you unload the bad habits? Mars Conjunct Uranus

Mars Conjunct Uranus 24 Pisces 26

Did you feel it? About an hour ago (as of this posting) Mars met up with Uranus. Like all Mars aspects we experience this about once every two years. Last time the two of them met up was April 29, 2007, which when we look at a time line for April 2007 (Thank you, CNN), we find the shootings at Virginia Tech took place about a ten days before the conjunction and Madeline McCann the little girl on holiday in Portugal disappeared about five days later. Both situations held the world’s attention for some time that year and even longer.

Of course Pluto was still in Sagittarius which drove the media in a constant search for ‘shiny metal objects.’ Now that Pluto has moved out of media driven Sag and into corporate Capricorn the world is bent more towards economic issues. Of course, we already mentioned in an earlier post that Pisces rules the seas and no surprise modern day pirates were taking up news cycles. Will there be more? Maybe. But I wonder more about something else.

This is the final time in our lifetime that Mars will Conjunct Uranus in Pisces. The next time the two of them meet up will be in 2011 in Aries. The energy of Pisces and the energy of Aries could not be any more different. Our first Mars/Uranus in Pisces conjunction was in 2003, followed by 2005 and 2007 and today the final round. Pisces is the sign of completion, tying things up, along with releasing things and of course it is the sign of our own self undoing, it certainly is the sign of the victim and we could see that in 2007 but it is also the sign of completions and finalizing things. Perhaps the The Universe may offer up a story where someone or something is just ‘done’. Maybe another big bankruptcy? Whatever, it is we will know it and feel it and and our response will be “time to move on.”

In our personal life, take a moment and think about 2003, 2005, 2007 and see how your life has changed? Uranus in Pisces demands changes in our unconscious, it asks us to wonder, “Why does this happen to me?” “Why do I do these things?” “How can I get some new activity in my life”? If you have not made the changes in your life as much as you would like and you insist it is due to outside circumstances, perhaps you may reconsider that appraisal and replace it with an idea that you are the one stopping the change. Run with that concept at least today.

Remember wherever Pisces is in your chart, Uranus is sitting there all charged up with electricity and here is the biggest warrior of all, Mars zapping Uranus with a lightening rod.

You will never get these two together in Pisces ever again in your lifetime, so why don’t you take the time today and think about some changes you could make that would bring you more in alignment with the world in which you want to live. And ask yourself, “What are you doing to stop it?”

For example, and I will use this because it is easy, if the world you want to live in is a healthier or thinner body then why on Godsgreen earth are you eating the foods that you choose? Fried this, sweet that? Apply this reasoning to other areas of your life. What are your habits and how are they hurting you?

Do you need to cut it out? Do you need to drop the bad habits? That is where Mars conjunct Uranus can help. Take some time today and this week to access your inner warrior and Uranus the agent of change to work together on your behalf.

  2. Kate,
    How cool for you to be so in synch!

    I had the same experience when I was was one of Buz Meyer's student's. I would hear his new moon lecture and then kind of forget it for a while and lo and behold something would come up during the 28 days and I would say, "Shoot, that is exactly what Buz said might come up."
    He was so gifted. He would have loved blogging. sigh.
