ReView – Uranus in Aries – March 11th 2011- May 15th 2018

URANUS WILL RETURN and retrograde back TO ARIES – NOV 7th 2018, then leave Aries for good for another 84 years on MARCH 6TH 2019.

Uranus emboldens revolutionary action and while transiting in the masculine sign of Aries this application suggests assertion, aggression even violence. Reflect upon the gun debate in the USA. It was the shooting of Senator Gabrielle Giffords in 2011 which began a seven-year stint of an unprecedented 18 mass shootings in the USA; Aurora Colorado, Newtown Connecticut, Fort Hood Texas, Charleston South Carolina, San Bernardino California, Blacksburg Virginia, Orlando Florida, Ocala Florida, to name but a handful of cities rocked by mass killings. The deadly affront to innocence was reinforced over and over. if one person isn’t save then no one is.

Aries is the sign of the head, the brain, and subsequently mental health. The USA mass shootings ignited conversations about not only gun control but the role of mental illness. Most of the shooters fit the profile of young and male, with a history of mental illness, with birthdays reflecting charts with the Uranus- Neptune conjunction of the early to mid-1990’s. This conjunction is notable for initiating the internet age, because it blends imagination with technology. In a specific chart this conjunction has the potential for the genius/crazy archetypal signature.

Violence cracked the sense of individual safety world-wide. The horror of political terrorism reared its head across the world in ways never experienced. In 2010 the reported acts of world-wide terrorism hovered around four thousand events. Each subsequent year, after the Uranus ingress, the rate increased exponentially to over forty-THOUSAND events in 2015. (

Aries reflects the spark of individuality, as Uranus is the planet of group consciousness. Over the past seven years we have seen multiple social action movements arise which reflect this theme; the individuals’ place within the collective. Consider the social political movements here and abroad; the `Arab Spring’, the `Occupy Movement’, the 99% movement, the Tea Party, the Women’s Marches, the March for our Lives Marches. Uranus the great awakener, like Prometheus unbound, has insisted upon the rights of the individual be called upon within the collective consciousness.

Aries is the sign of `identity’. Over the past seven years the definition of what is `human’ has been stretched into unfamiliar territory. The `trans-humanism’ movement has taken hold, in part, by the technological wizardry suggested by Uranus. The movement suggest that through science humans can transcend their flesh and blood boundaries. “ Early in February 2017, innovative billionaire Elon Musk reiterated an idea he had floated several times over the past year: Humans need to merge with machines. Musk sees a direct brain/computer interface as an absolute necessity, not only in order for us to evolve as a species, but as a way of keeping up with the machines we are creating. According to Musk, if we don’t merge with the machines, we will become useless and irrelevant.” (

The boundaries of sexual identity have seen a porous reordering over the past seven years. From the halls of academia into the bedrooms of everyday people there has been a revolution of gender identity. An icon of athleticism, Bruce Jenner, embraced his identity as a female when she transitioned to Caitlyn in 2015. She has been called the most famous openly transgender woman in the world.
