“Learning is always rebellion.  Every bit of new truth discovered is revolutionary to what was believed before.” Margaret Lee Runbeck

The nature of life is such that it continually requires us to take ongoing leaps in the dark, or to venture down roads that we’re not altogether familiar with. Today, with the empowering Sun squaring experimental Uranus (10:53 pm EDT), the planet of change, innovation, and rebellion, it appears that we tend to thrive, or come more fully into our own now, by intentionally cultivating a love of the unknown; by deciding to tolerate or accept ambiguities; by finding a way to make peace with possibly uncomfortable outcomes or results that may not be exactly what we had originally intended or envisioned for ourselves, but which may be very valuable and necessary for our soul’s unique purpose. Lao Tzu taught that life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes, and that we should not resist them as that only causes sorrow. Always very good advice to heed, but especially for today when a wave of uncertainty seems to be on the horizon.

On another level, if we’ve been hoping for a breakthrough or a discovery, Sun-Uranus could very well deliver one. This influence also favors taking unconventional approaches to problems. Also, because this energy tends to speed things up, it may be the kind of day in which we feel more physically or mentally restless. Accordingly, allowing ourselves to deviate from our routine, might be a very good way to play the day. We also may want to get more rest and watch what we eat now, particularly avoiding, or cutting back on, food or beverages, or even activities, that over-stimulate us, or cause us to stay awake, or get too excited.

Question for Today: What is a change that you know you should make, but you’re still resisting it?

In the News: The Eurozone summit is taking place today that could pave the way for a third bailout for Greece, but the process is reportedly fraught with uncertainty. Astrologically, today’s Sun-Uranus aspect could be interpreted as accentuating or setting off taskmaster Saturn’s recent return to “debt-ruling” Scorpio, where it presently sits retrograde near the “anaretic” or last degree of the sign, a placement in which it is deemed to be operating in a more “urgent” manner.

“I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.” George Washington Carver
