“Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be.” John Wooden

The “radical change” planet Uranus stations direct in Pisces on December 5, 2010, after nearly a 5-month retrograde period. Uranus rules aviation, innovation,  revolution, technology, and scientific achievement. Uranus characteristically acts to “accelerate” or “quicken the pace” of events in our lives, both individually and collectively.

On a personal level, Uranus pertains to our “urge for individuality,” or need to “differentiate” ourselves from others. It also speaks to our “desire for freedom” or “liberation” from authority figures or restrictive situations. It frequently acts as kind of a “loose cannon,” symbolizing the “problem child” lurking inside each of us, who only wants to be a law unto himself.

Uranus additionally denotes our “intuition” or “sudden flashes” of insight. It is associated with “strokes of genius.”

Uranus spends approximately 7 years in each of the astrological signs, so after it leaves Pisces for Aries in March 2011, it will not be back in this sign for another 84 years.

Neptune-ruled Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac, signifies our “spiritual urge” or “desire for transcendence.” It governs our charitable and compassionate instincts, and our more ego-denying impulses. Pisces also correlates with fantasy and our imagination, having domain over our creative impulses.

It could be that with Uranus direct, once again, in Pisces, that we have an excellent chance, the next few months, to make notable progress regarding our spiritual path, perhaps experience new revelations.  Yoga, meditation, and prayer may be more potent now as avenues for accelerating our inner guidance and insight.

We may also want to pay closer attention to our dreams and, if we’re not doing so already, start keeping a dream journal, as Pisces rules dreams and the subconscious and Uranus can be a sudden  “awakening agent” here. It should also be an excellent time for psychic development, with Uranus ruling intuition.

Uranus additionally governs astrology. It may also be a good time to get more involved with this study, as a way of opening ourselves up to higher wisdom and self-knowledge.

On a personal note: One thing that I enjoy doing, in a bid to cultivate my own ESP, is to periodically sit down in the evening with a magazine and, with my eyes closed, while running my hands over the pages, I try to “read” the pages.  I specifically try to pick up pictures or images on the pages, or see if I can psychically glean the general theme of the page, or at least get a feel for any colors.  It’s a fun thing to do, and the results can be pretty amazing. At least this has been the case for me. This is something I’ve done for over 20 years. Maybe others may want to try doing the same thing now, with intuitive Uranus stationing direct in psychic Pisces.

Too, our creativity and artistic leanings (Pisces) could be primed for a big boost now with Uranus direct. Included here might be film-making, photography, writing, painting, music, songwriting, dance, poetry. It may be that immersion into “creative-type expression” serves as a liberating agent (Uranus) for us.

Of course, perhaps the most noble and worthwhile thing that we could all do with Uranus stationing direct in “selfless” Pisces is to become more involved in humanistic causes. Maybe do more volunteering. Or find other ways, maybe novel new ways (Uranus), of giving back to our communities, and to the planet.

Historically, on a collective level, the last time Uranus turned direct in Pisces, before entering Aries for seven years, was back in December of 1927. It stationed direct on December 10th that year.

Interestingly, on December 8, 1927, Valdimir Shatalov was born in Petrapavlovsk. He would later become a Russian cosmonaut (Uranian-ruled profession). Shatalov flew three space missions of the Soyuz programme.  Then, from 1971 to 1987, he was Commander of Cosmonaut Training, and Director of the Cosmonaut Training Centre from then until 1991.

Also, on December 12, 1927, Robert Norton Norce was born in Burlington, Iowa. He would eventually be nicknamed the “Mayor of Silicon Valley.” He co-founded Fairchild Semiconductor in 1957 and Intel in 1968 (Uranus rules technology).  Norce  is credited with the invention of the integrated circuit or microchip, along with Jack Kilby.

Maybe history will also repeat itself now.  Perhaps a few more, “high-level” Uranian types, will be incarnating to our planet in the near term, to eventually propel us all forward in a positive, accelerated manner.

Too, with Uranus stationing direct now, we may also want to pay closer attention to the news headlines, the next few days. Especially look for breaking news regarding insurrections, rebel causes (Juan Assange), and technological (the internet) and scientific advances or developments. Also, news about outer space or “the great beyond.” Also, we may want to monitor news of a more ‘spiritual’ or ‘religious’ nature (Pisces).

It should also be noted here that when we have a change of motion with a planet, in this case Uranus stationing direct from, the influence is felt for a few days before and a few days after the turnaround.
