Awaken to a Whole New Life
Uranus remains retrograde this whole month until December 25. Its shadow period lasts until April 11, 2016. The degrees it travels this month (17°42’–16°50’ Aries) are represented in the Sabian symbols by “an empty hammock stretched between two trees” and “two dignified spinsters, sitting in silence.” Uranus in Aries urges us to free ourselves from bondage, conditionings, and anything that keeps us from our own truth. We are being asked particularly this month to look at our relationship with nature, to relax, and to not worry so much about what others might think about us. It is important to be real and focused on our needs with love and kindness. Let us be guided by our hearts and not so much by our minds.
Neptune turns direct on November 18 at 7°01’ Pisces. Its shadow period lasts until March 8, 2016. This degree is symbolized by “a girl blowing a bugle.” This is a month of awakening, when we might feel called to a whole new life while wishing to follow entirely new dreams and focus on completely different things. It is essential that we truly listen to our hearts and be in integrity with ourselves.
