Happy 239th discovery Birthday March 13 to the RADICAL planet URANUS. Truly the home of the weird, it orbits at a 90-degree angle, the only known planet to do so.

Discovered March 13, 1781, by William Herschel who discovered Uranus while surveying stars in the night sky using a telescope that he constructed himself. Herschel noticed that one of the “stars” seemed different, and after observing it many more times, noticed that it orbited the Sun. Hershel originally wanted to name it George’s Star after King George, or the “Georgian Planet” which wasn’t popular outside of Britain.

The name Uranus comes from the ancient Greek deity of the skies Uranus, OURANOUS, the father of Cronus (Saturn) and grandfather of Zeus (Jupiter), which in Latin became Uranus.  It is the only planet whose name is derived directly from a figure of Greek mythology. 

In 1789, Bode’s Royal Academy colleague Martin Klaproth named his newly discovered element uranium in support of the name Uranus for the planet. The new name Uranus wasn’t official until 1850. Uranus symbols ♅ was suggested by Lalande in 1784. Uranus in Thai is Dao Maritayu (ดาวมฤตยู, Star of Mṛtyu), after the Sanskrit word for “death.”

As URANUS is the first planet outside of the traditional 7 planets it broke all the rules. The first planet to be discovered past Saturn Uranus was most appropriate because just as Saturn was the father of Jupiter, the new planet should be named after the father of Saturn.

Uranus is the seventh planet from the Sun. It has the third-largest planetary radius and fourth-largest planetary mass in the Solar System. Uranus is similar in composition to Neptune, and both have bulk chemical compositions different to larger gas giants Jupiter and Saturn.

In ASTROLOGY URANUS is considered to govern the sign of AQUARIUS, a FIXED AIR SIGN The 11th sign is considered as the “higher octave” of Mercury the communicator by modern astrologers. As the first planet to be discovered with technology, beyond the ancient boundaries of SATURN, Uranus represents the unknown and an extension of the human.

Uranus breaks up all old traditions. Known as the planet of revolutions, chaos, freedom, inventions, pioneers, airborne things, hi-tech, Uranus rules the Internet, social media etc, cryptocurrency, robots, A1, Higher consciousness, Virtual reality, collaboration, detachment, science, space, organizations, networking, managers, independence, originality, gay or trans or asexual people and anyone who is an outsider.

The famed Age of AQUARIUS sung about in the musical Hair in the ’60s is a popular archetype. The exact start date of the real Age of Aquarius, which is much bandied about for when it actually begins, is predicted to start on December 21, 2020 when it enters Aquarius with Jupiter starting off the next 20-year GRAND CONJUNCTION cycle.

SATURN traditionally rules both Capricorn and Aquarius and Saturn will enter Aquarius for the first time in 84 years on March 21, 2020. Then for two and a half years with Jupiter on December 21, 2020. Followed by Pluto entering Aquarius in 2023/2024.

URANUS governs the mid-life crisis at 41/42 halfway in its orbital period when a 2nd teenage rebellion rears its head. 

It is a HUMAN SIGN, its ancient glyph of a God or Goddess pouring waters from the cosmos. It is an air sign, not water and the glyph can also symbolize electric currents. It’s discovery synched with the French revolution, and the American one. 

Uranus orbits the Sun once every 84 years, taking an average of seven years to pass through each constellation of the zodiac. In 2033, the planet will have made its third complete orbit around the Sun since being discovered in 1781. The planet returned to its discovery point northeast of Zeta Tauri twice since, in 1862 and 1943, one day later each time as the precession of the equinoxes has shifted it 1° west every 72 years. Uranus will return to this location again in 2030-31. 

URANUS is a generational planet and a personal one to modern astrologers. Everyone has Uranus somewhere in their charts which shows your radical nature, your higher consciousness, where you stand out, where you work with the collective “hive mind.”

URANUS is currently in TAURUS a FIXED Earth sign, 2019-2026 radically changing women’s freedom, Taurus is ruled by Venus, breaking the old molds, bringing hi-tech and personal robotic, cryptocurrency revolutions, independence, rocking the earth and the bull markets, finance and pretty much everything else. 

Let’s honour The radical planet today and honour where we need to march to our own drummers and radically alter the old historical Satunine structures. Just like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle walking away from the stuffy Royal Institution to do their own thing and live life on their own terms. Their choice for themselves and their family is the perfect synchronistic example of Uranian energy at work in practical ways.

Friday the 13th and Scorpio Moon,

We know the world is on CORONAVIRUS lockdown and in fear. The MOON is in obsessive, secretive, dark Scorpio energies.

Scorpio is the sign of Paranoia.  The Moon is making a Trine to Neptune and the SUN today in PISCES. pouring darker, more emotional fuel into the pot and also adding to our ability to go deeply internal, and seek source energy.

There are 3 lovely sextiles today too. Moon to Mars Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn this helps us to stay grounded. This is power energy. It’s grounded and capable of transforming the most difficult obstacles.

Are you superstitious? Were you born under a bad sign?  The scientific name for fear of #13 is called triskadekaphobia and the fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskevidekatriaphobia. Why is the #13 feared and supposed to be bad? The origin of the number 13 needs to be understood and shifted from fear and superstition.

The fear of #13 is really a misogynist brainwash that originated with the Catholic church.

 I love #13. The truth will set you free. Pet a black cat today and break a few mirrors. Breaking mirrors is a psychological metaphor for breaking free of your unconscious projections.

In the Tarot the #13 is DEATH and as the Western culture fears death and its own immortality it screwed all of this up and mad death bad and to be feared. 

Death was always presided over by The GODDESS. She who gives birth also gives Death. Again the Church’s fears of the Divine Feminine had to make everything associated with HER the Great Goddess- bad, negative, fearful, tainted. 

Friday is sacred to the Goddess VENUS it is HER day, that right there is telling you something. 

 Thirteen is the sacred number of the Goddess, the DIVINE FEMININE because it is the number of annual LUNAR cycles. Friday is named in honor of the Nordic Goddess Freya who is also the planet/ Goddess Venus. The Moon is one of the main embodiments of the Goddess. Women’s menstrual cycles are synchronized to the moon and women were seen to be earthly representatives of the Goddess, Her mysteries and immortality. Pagans worshipped the Goddess, the moon and Her natural cycles of death and rebirth which women partook of every month. Woman’s periods are equated with the number 13. 

To further suppress Goddess worship, the church made the number 13 into something evil, feared and superstitious as they feared women’s powers as creatresses as magical.

Friday the 13th is really an anti-pagan Goddess day and I don’t like it, as it continues to be portrayed that way in error. This keeps unconsciously programming fear of the feminine, intuition, magic, nature, menstrual blood, and women’s power.

Black cats are “familiars” of witches. All cats absorb negative energies and are highly sensitive to spirits and other energies which we normally can’t sense. If you’ve ever had a cat of any colour you know this.

On this day, Friday the 13th I honour the Goddess, the Divine Feminine and the lunar cycles. I remember and honour myself and all women as holders of the mysteries within our bodies.

Here are 13 important facts superstitious people need to know about

Always choose LOVE over Fear.
I choose to love and honour the real positive magic of being alive; naturally intuitive and connected imminently with nature.

Also, I do not believe in superstitious curses and their removal. Yes there are negative energies and entities. I do not ascribe to the belief in curses or blaming your life situation on that. All negative intention is black magic.  It is all about energy. Thousands of unscrupulous lying phony psychics claim to remove curses etc. but they are only manipulating naive unsuspecting powerless desperate people. I am totally against this position. Do not project your own powerlessness onto someone else as having some amazing power who claims that they can remove your troubles or provide an instant fix for thousands of dollars.  Please don’t pay phony psychics to perform rituals, light candles or pray for you for exorbitant prices. That’s all a hoax.  Yes, positive intentions work, only you can change your own life, no one can do that for you. It’s a matter of perspective and psychological shamanic awareness.  I help my clients to get empowered. Stop believing the popular myths which religions create just to control you. That’s black magic too. They always blame their own sins onto others.
