How transits create selfies, more makeup and financial crisis

“Unless the mind, body and spirit are equally developed and fully integrated, no wisdom can be sustained.  That is why extreme religions and ideologies do not bear fruit.”  Living in the Tao

It may seem strange and totally disconnected but the invisible system of order and bigstock--196232251dependability always is in control.  We may not see any connection to the rise in selfies or the rise in the use and sale of makeup or the rise in “Face”book but they are connected.  Soon to be connected will be the changes to our financial systems and all the dots that can be connected in this area beginning the summer of 2018.  That trend will completely upend our financial and banking system over a period of seven years.

Just as we don’t see the financial and banking system going through big changes, we didn’t see the rise in the current trends we have been living with over the last seven years.

Trends come in gradually until they become a way of life and we forget we never lived without them.  This should be a reminder to all of us that everything is evolving and changing even when we don’t see it coming.  There are many big movements ahead but it is like a holiday gift, you can’t open it until the right date.  When you do, the gift takes on its own life.

If we look back to 2011 when the planet Uranus cycled in Aries (and still is) we saw a big rise in self-promotion, self-interest, image, name, reputation and me, me.  The sign of Aries rules self-promotion.  It’s as if we have been on a self-promotion binge for the last six almost seven years.  Selfie-sticks, Instagram filters and the Face of Facebook ballooned.  It has also shown us the dark side of self-promotion and a dissatisfaction of “Me”.  We even photo what we eat.  We even elected a president who thrives on self-promotion even down to promoting his steaks, buildings, clothes, wines and, of course, his wall.

Another part of this current Uranus cycle in Aries is the enormous range of cosmetics now available through numerous outlets.  There are various colors, shades, corrector etc. that have mushroomed the cosmetic boom into heaviness.  As is true of any Uranus transit, it is never satisfied and it is always looking for some type of change.   The part of the body that Aries rules is the head.  We continuously take head shots and will plaster ourselves over social media with our photos and our makeup.

This trend will diminish as we enter a new phase of Uranus.  It will enter the sign of Taurus next May and start a very disruptive journey through the banking world and how we look at our finances and our debts.  You can expect many changes and some very unexpected.  It’s intensity will be through 2020 but it continues on until 2025.  Taurus deals with values and worth so you will see the price you have paid for your mortgage, credit card and financial bondage.  You can expect global transformation in this area.  You may start to realize how trapped you have been.  The banking system will be turned on its head over this long seven year period.  It definitely won’t be business as usual.

But in the meantime, try to remember you can make your plans and you can direct your plans but you cannot control them.  These invisible transits do not operate alone.    They have accompanying transits that can increase their power or weaken them.  In this new Uranus in Taurus transit, it’s companion transits will strengthen it.  You might say that Uranus in Taurus represents revolution and money.  With the transit of Saturn in Capricorn and Pluto in Capricorn accompanying Uranus, the ride will affect those at the top of power.  It rules people at the head of governments and business.  Expect the unexpected and remember, just because you cannot see it or imagine it, it does happen.

As I have said before, fires, floods (hurricanes and swollen waterways as well as submerging of land) and earthquakes help Mother Nature get rid of negativity.  The heavenly transits play their part in making sure this planet survives.

It is wise to know your own chart and how you personally will be affected by the winds of change.

    Hi Gail, this is a great article, thank you. I really appreciate the way you describe how Uranus in Taurus will be mitigated (somewhat) for the ordinary person since Pluto and Saturn will be in Capricorn together for the first 2 years. Yes the ordinary person will feel the effects, but I sense you are accurate in seeing the top of the pyramid being more affected. Thanks again, Carol

    Sounds like a “Fun Time In The Ole Town Tonight”…. Not.
    Thank You, as always for an interesting article.

    Hi Catherine,
    I have no idea what this means. Sometimes when signs change they would “leave” a sign but everything looks good for this Saturday. The outer planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are retrograde. Venus leaves Leo today and goes into Virgo today. Sorry I can’t help with this one. Constellations are important to study. They are talking about planets and constellations. Not clear.
    Thank you for commenting.

    Dear Gail,
    What is your prediction for September 23rd, this Saturday?
    I find it most interesting; Evangelical Christians posting on YouTube about the configurations with Leo the lion and Virgo the virgin. They quote the Bible to explain, “Jupiter has been in her womb for 9 months and will leave Virgo’s womb on the 23rd.” This is not “wicked astrology rather it is astronomy.” Sorry I did not copy the URL for you.
    Looking forward to your response.
    Blessings, Cathrine

    General Noswad Returns To The Black Hills to Retrieve Dawson’s Horses
    A Story from The Book of Non-Cents
    The General, being a rather observant type, he always dug deep and wanted to go deeper, was real curious to see what he would find at Black Hills Unity Festival this year (2017), this year being The 4th time it was put on. Basically, The General wanted to know who his family was and what they were about. He found out that in The Sioux Nation the number Four has significant meaning, thus it was to be the last festival, and The General knew his numerology teacher, Wind Blows $ My Way better known as The Queen of Doom in some elite circles, that it has the following Life Path Meaning: With four sides of the same size, a square has no weak points. It is organized, solid and enduring. In the spiritual significance of numbers, this is the foundation for the numerology meanings of the built-to-last the Number 4. As the fourth of all numbers, 4’s symbolism shows us that equality on all sides creates security and stability. Interesting that biblical history cites the earth as being created on the fourth day. When your Life Path Number is 4 you become the “worker bee” of the Universe. There is nothing that goes unnoticed in your world. Your ability to manage and maintain self-discipline is what makes you a highly successful professional. It is not surprising to find 4s as planners in any field. On the negative side, she can be selfish, thoughtless and irresponsible. She rarely considers the future beyond tomorrow or next week, and worrying is not in her nature. She tends to procrastinate and can be unreliable.
    The General now knew why The Holy Father had demanded he attend The Black Hills Unity Festival in 2014 along with his brother, Brother “Tom Ass”. and his letter writer, Just Bill. The General also realized that The Number 5, The Life Path of America had as the most common downfall a tendency to experiment with sex, drugs, alcohol and other weaknesses of the flesh. A desire for instant gratification can be her downfall; add to that a sense of invulnerability, lack of discipline and restraint, and you have a recipe for disaster. America must rebirth itself as a number 9 (4+5) which correlates to Natural Law, that when a Conquering Nation suppresses the spirituality of The Conquered Nation that after a period of 4-500 years the Conquered Spirituality will begin to rise up and blend with the Conquering Nation Spirituality and then after another 100 years neither one will be recognized. This is what is happening in front of our eyes today. The Holy Father says it is time to test Attachments of all kinds and even those provoked by The Subconscious. Even the shape of numbers reflect their nature, and just as the 4 is square and grounded, the 5 is a symbol of dynamic motion. The 4 is controlled, measured, synchronized, and static. The 5 is random energy, elastic and constantly in motion. The General thought of The Number 9 and its negative attributes, disconnection, lethargy and an inability to concentrate and focus, dreamy, lethargic, inability to concentrate and is considered to be feminine and introvert, and its positive side relates to wisdom and responsibility, and the ultimate goal of the number 9 is to serve humanity. This vibration has come to serve the world and make it a better place for all to live in.

    Hi Cheryl,
    Thanks for your nice reply. Actually, it is better to look at the last time we had Uranus in Taurus (the same transit) with similar accompanying planets. That was the period 1934 through 1941 into early 1942. This was the age of Social Security and the Banking Act both in 1935 and the Monopoly game. It was also the recovery period of the great depression as we entered into war. There was austerity and rationing of war to follow. The years followed the Wall St. crash. It definitely called for austerity and upset the banking system. We are back again and Jupiter will be in Scorpio until November 2018 just as it was in 1935. Having Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn almost assures austerity and a top-down drudging. How it plays out we will watch and see but I would not call it a picnic time.
    Keep your comments coming and Many thanks.

  7. Excellent article, Gail.
    The last time Uranus changed signs, there was an atomic disaster in Japan (?) and the tsunami nobody saw coming, for sure. Taurus being an earth sign, I think sudden earth changes (read earthquakes) are in store. Security–or what people put their trust in for their security will certainly be challenged.

    As Bette Davis once said, “Fasten your seatbelts–it’s going to be a bumpy ride!”
