MAY 20

WHEN MARS SQUARES URANUS

As the red planet Mars squared surprise packet Uranus, Bishop Michael Curry gave a history of fire from the Bronze Age to the present, for the assembled guests at the royal wedding. A surprise for the Queen, as unconventional Uranus moved over her Sun? She wasn't the only one.

Uranus is difference, with a difference. That's why we notice its effects. It's not just another brick in the wall. You sit up and take notice. With fiery Mars it's spontaneous combustion and even if they are in square...his address definitely wasn't.

“Fire was one of the great technological discoveries of humanity...if human beings ever harness the energies of love, then for the second time in the history of the world, we will have discovered fire. Love is the very fire and energy of real life!”

Perhaps the bishop's words were meant to resonate around the world, at the dawn of this this highly combustible time. For his was a positive message - a higher vibration of passionate Mars and Uranus, walking the road less traveled.

Negatively, Mars Uranus transits emphasise impulsive actions, accidents, people losing it and jumping the gun. Events like the shooting at Sante Fe, Israeli snipers taking 62 protesters lives in one day or the ominous rumblings of Hawaii's Mount Kilauea, the most active volcano on earth.

The Mars Uranus square has history. It was around for the beheading of King Charles, the Great Fire of London and the start of the Korean War, which still awaits finality. And it's why, during the next four months, it's important to keep a lid on some things, while finding the motivation to act swiftly on others.

ECHOES OF 1939

For Mars is treading the same celestial path it did in 1939, the starting year of World War Two. It's moving through the same signs, heading retro and direct at similar degrees - and making the second of its closest approach to Earth in 60,000 years. The first was in 2003 - year of the Iraq War. The end of July 2018 will be crucial, but the cycle has already begun.

Note the global mood has changed - and fast. Peace talks scheduled for June 12 between North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un and US President Donald Trump have hit an inevitable hurdle, as North Korea protest ongoing military exercises. The proposed June 12 summit, will put the Sun right on the USA's birth Mars in Gemini – all highly inflammatory.

On May 08 2018 @ 14.20 hours Washington, Donald Trump officially pulled the USA out of the nuclear agreement with Iran. Mars was 26CAP55 in square to Uranus at 29ARI37. Back on December 6, when he declared Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, scuttling any chance of peace negotiations, Mars was at 29 of Libra opposing Uranus at 25 of Aries. It's a hair trigger combination.

Trump's horoscope is heavily weighted toward Mars and Uranus. He was born with assertive Mars rising at his Ascendant. His Sun is conjoined with Uranus, his Moon opposite. It fits the instant actions, temper tantrums and aggressive demeanor. And it's going to make the next four months extremely interesting. Because Uranus has just Solar Arced to Trump's Mars. See the biwheel below.

Somebody who is over the Moon with Trump's aggression, is Israeli Prime Minister Bin Netanyahu. Both were born with Mars in late Leo, at a position that just happens to coincide with Israel’s Mars. In fact the composite chart of Netanyahu and Trump is volatility amped up. It has the Sun, Mercury, Mars, Saturn and Pluto all bunched together in fiery Leo.

As Mars came to perfect the square with Uranus, the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem took place, at 4 pm on May 14 - Israel's 70th anniversary. World leaders, even Trump and Pence, were missing. Instead daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner were despatched. Kushner's the US peace negotiator in the Middle East. The results of Kushner's efforts were simultaneously evident.

Even more telling was US United Nations representative, Nikki Haley, exiting stage right from the assembly discussing the violence of May 14, just as the Palestinian speaker was about to make his address. That said it all really. The press may be worried about Russian influence on US politics but why are they so deft at always overlooking the elephant in the room.

The United Nations Human Rights Council voted overwhelmingly (29 for to 2 against) to despatch an independent team to investigate the shootings of May 14, during which 62 were killed and over 2,000 others wounded. The only dissenters were the USA and Australia. How times change.

During the global meltdown of World War Two, the United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt spearheaded the establishment of the United Nations. An Australian, Herbert 'Doc' Evatt, became their third President in 1948/49. Evatt helped draft the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. If either could see the role reversals of today?

HAIR-TRIGGER TIME

So as Mars renegotiates a path it took back in 1939, it is a time to discard the belligerent and bellicose attitudes. Intransigent global leaders stuck in immovable ideologies are a greater danger to humanity in a weaponised world. A world balancing on a precipice, like an accident waiting to happen. The thinking person can clearly see what their political leaders refuse to.

A headline like a royal wedding was, for many, a romantic and welcome escapism. And for others, it was just an expensive yawn. Regardless, it rated well, being broadcast across the globe. And a big talking point was Bishop Michael Curry's sermon.

Unusual as the Piscean preacher's address might have seemed, to those expecting the usual traditional fair, there may have been a deeper message. He has had Uranus on his Mars recently and it is now on his Venus. For in his words of love lay our real hope. The alternative, that some would have us believe, is a polarised apocalyptic world awaiting Armageddon...and blindly creating their own reality.

But the true power of Uranus lies in refreshing and honest renewal. It comes to remind us that nothing is set in stone. It is never, and will never be, just another brick in the wall.

Aries or Aries Rising weekly horoscope: Individualistic Uranian energy can now be applied to your possessions and earning potential. This is leading to exploring new and more independent sources of income. Technology can play a commanding role here. Wherever your attachments are leading to stagnation, or stifling your progress, you'll find sudden shifts occurring. In short, all that you have learned about independence and modernisation is now yours to apply, in a physical and material sense. To look at your own personal chart, organise a personal and/or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top 

Taurus or Taurus Rising weekly horoscope: Ground-breaking Uranus is now in Taurus. Get used to life in the fast, or faster, lane. A feature of Uranian transits is the sudden breaking up of former conditions, where they are restricting your freedom and/or stifling individual growth. Sometimes this happens at lightning speed. People make split second decisions, or events conspire to create quick solutions. That kind of energy is more prevalent for birthdays at the very start of Taurus of April 21, or around the middle of May. To look at your own personal chart, organise a Skype and/or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Gemini or Gemini Rising weekly horoscope: Unconventional Uranus is moving into your twelfth solar house of solitude and seclusion from the 16th onward. This placement is notable for those who do their best work behind the scenes or have a very private side to their personal affairs. Bob Dylan is a case in point as was fellow songwriter, the now late Harry Nilsson. The latter managed to achieve stardom, without the usual stage shows or tours. Both were Geminis with Uranus in Taurus. It's encouraging your more eccentric hobbies or secret talents as well as supporting a more alternative lifestyle. To look at your own personal chart, organise a Skype and or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Cancer or Cancer Rising weekly horoscope: Uranus has exited your solar career house after a seven years stay. During its transit you may have trod the road less traveled and chose a more alternative or independent career path. The rebel planet is moving into your house of collective associations now, with a humanitarian role to play. You champion the individual within the system, the rights of the independent. You may be joining with others of a similar mindset. And you should find more freedom and flexibility within friendships. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Leo or Leo Rising weekly horoscope: Wild child Uranus has reached the top of your solar chart and is squaring your sign. In a professional setting, it suits the individualist, who's willing to swim against the tide. You can become known for this. Initially this will impact the July born Leos, through until early November. Then this energy eases returning early March 2019. It signals the ideal time for exploring alternative careers, and modernising your approach. With the important proviso that unyielding or dictatorial approaches can bring it all undone. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Virgo or Virgo Rising weekly horoscope: Uranus, the planet of 'accelerated autonomy', now activates your solar house of higher purpose, distant lands and different languages and culture. It's an extremely positive transit for you. It is opening opportunity through unique channels. It is making any life changes easier to negotiate. And it is widening your horizons through via overseas connections, travel, courses or adopting new beliefs and philosophies. Your new found sense of freedom can spell release from a co-dependency, be it via relationship, vocational or financially based. There are opportunities for greater mobility and movement. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Libra or Libra Rising weekly horoscope: Uranus is now empowering all areas of personal transformation. Those familiar with the writings of mythologist, Joseph Campbell, may recognise this as an essential phase of the Hero's Journey. It is the time of no looking back - the crossing of the threshold. Uranus, for you, is representing a sudden and final cut with the past and the casting off of an old way of life, like the emerging Hero accepting his or her personal mission. There can be a similar feel of leaving the proverbial nest to test your wings and discover your true purpose and identity. Exciting stuff.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising weekly horoscope: Now is the beginning of a long term (7 year) transit of Uranus opposing your sign. Keep in mind that oppositions are usually played out via your relationships. Uranus adds a touch of the unexpected, the different and possibly ingenious. It's function involves rediscovering spontaneity. A reminder that we all change and to acknowledge that reality. Uranus transits are problematic when each partner has become a mirror image of each other and individuality has been sacrificed. New people coming into your life at this time will stress the principles of difference, freedom and flexibility. It may be reflected via their age, appearance or attitude. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising weekly horoscope: Uranus is now in Taurus, the first earth and fixed sign. It's enduring qualities symbolise solidarity and sameness. Uranus on the contrary is anything but - being the antithesis of predictability. If Taurus is the glue, Uranus is the solvent. The areas of your life most responsive to Taurean stability, for you as a Sagittarian, are work habits and its here that sudden adjustments will be necessary, initially for the November born. The renewal energies of Uranus have their advantages. Changing the way you do things can have a positive effect on your health. The real value of routine is to make life easier. But as time advances so must the automated patterns. Uranus affords you the opportunity to update the old models.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising weekly horoscope: Uranus, is the rebel planet that stands out from the crowd. It rotates perpendicular to the Sun, it is the only one bearing a Greek, not Roman name, and it appears conspicuously at revolutions. It's beginning a seven year long transit through your house of romance, creativity and speculation. It favours innovation and originality in your creative endeavours. It helps integrate technology with art. It attracts you to the new and different and can certainly spice up sometimes staid Capricorn's love life, via instant attraction with a telling difference. If you're a December born Capricorn, get set for the Uranian innovation. It's happening fast. Look at your own future prospects astrologically for the years ahead, organize a phone or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin Click here for details. Top

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising weekly horoscope: Liberating and electric Uranus is revitalising the home, family and emotional foundations of your life. Initially it is affecting birthdays around January 20. Does it mean you're getting your house rewired, or filled with the latest technological gadgets? Perhaps for some. It certainly suggests that your ideal shangrila reflects a more alternative way of living in the future. Freedom begins at home might be the new motto. That's where you can exercise true autonomy or even house more eccentric relatives. As an Aquarian, you're at home with the innovative energies of Uranus anyway. To discuss your own future prospects astrologically for 2018, organise a phone or personal consultation with Ed. Click here for details. Top

Pisces or Pisces Rising weekly horoscope: Lateral thinking Uranus enervates the area of your solar chart dealing with the conveyance of information, commuting and computing. Does it mean that you suddenly become interested in electric cars, building a better website? Are you due to update your technology or electronics in a major manner? We're just throwing out the possibilities here. Making changes that give you greater mobility or free up your options is probably going to effect you a lot more, if your birthday lies somewhere close to the start of Pisces - February 20 and thereabouts. A case of 'damn the consequences'. To look at your own personal horoscope, organise a phone or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin click here for details. Top
