The planet of future moves forward today in Taurus, the sign of value, after having been retrograde since mid August.
Uranus has been called the Great Awakener. These awakenings are born from a kind of shaking, a moving, a turbulence, or perhaps a strange moment of wonder that renders us back to a freshness as a beginner.
The past year has shook the entire globe up into a collective new reality. The question is, from such a change, what is the future of value itself?
Is there a future where wellbeing is deemed more valuable than money? What would such a future look like? John Lennon painted such a future, from his imagination outward. When he said he was not the only dreamer, he understood full well the joy of the beginner. Embracing what is fresh, and yet to be.
Uranus is the planet of future because it is the essence of yet to be. In Taurus we tie in an element of goodness. Taurus is the kinds of response we prefer to hold on to, to constitute ourselves, to be secure and strong. Be it food, thought, relations, environment, tradition, habit, what have you. Taurus uses whatever it can to continue to constitute itself and make itself strong.
The future lives in every moment, as we are free to shake off the imposing qualities of the immediate past (as philosopher Alfred North Whitehead talks about) and create something new with a “bid for freedom”. In this way, we step into the realm of yet to be instead of sinking into the swamp of that’s just the way it is.
As the future gains its forward stride, cultivate moments of well-being, that inform you from the inside the true meaning of value. Lightning visions of intuition may find you in such moments, illuminating this question even more, then gone in a flash, yet hopefully rediscovered through… pondering!
As always, happy astro pondering!
Uranus won’t retrograde again until August 2022, and will be in Taurus until April 2026.
