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.

2020 is a big supermoon year.
the bIGGEST cosmic BANG ever was detected by scientists.
“Supermassive black hole
Earth has picked up a mini- Pet Moon
Elon Musk tweeted “It’s not mine,” the only man on the planet who could say that.
Apparently, the little asteroid that could has been circling our earth for 3 years and may only be around until April 2020 but we will see what this little cutie is all about.
Interesting synchronicity, an extra new emotion, the Moon always symbolizes mother.
We live in a warped GALAXY. Science says so.

Happy Pluto discovery day. The Dark Lord with a Heart is 90 years old from our discovery of him. From the Cosmic Intelligence Agency CEO Julija Simas. Julia and I made a pilgrimage to The Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff Arizona where Pluto was discovered in 2014.
NOTE: In modern Tropical Astrology, Pluto was assigned to be the ruler of Scorpio.
Pluto entered Scorpio on November 5, 1983, and stayed at 0 degrees Scorpio until December 1st exact.
Pluto was at 0 Scorpio from April 12, 1984-May 18, 1984 and from August 28-September 29, 1984.
All of those very new Pluto in Scorpio generation people will be jolted woke by the Jupiter Saturn conjunction on December 21, 2020, at 0 Aquarius squaring their Natal Pluto in Scorpio at 0 degrees.
Pluto was discovered by Clyde Tombach in Flagstaff Arizona on February 19, 1930. It turns 90 years old today from our perspective of integrating this powerful archetypal planet into our Psyche’s and souls once again.
No matter that a few astronomers downgraded Pluto to a dwarf-Planet. Modern Tropical astrologers still consider Pluto a formidable Transpersonal planet symbolizing the soul and psyche the Collective Unconscious, Power, the Plutocracy, super wealth, secrets, sexuality, hidden things, ancestors, atomic energy, death and rebirth, toxic energy and recycling.
Please share widely. Dont you love, fear and honour Pluto?
Where is Pluto in your Natal Chart? He is one of the most potent planets there is. I have no idea how traditional astrologers do not include him as a Transpersonal planet in personal readings.
here is an ancient HYMN to Pluto. https://www.sacred-texts.com/cla/hoo/hoo22.htm
and this one from https://www.theoi.com/Text/OrphicHymns1.html#25
TO PLUTO [PLOUTON]
Pluto [Plouton], magnanimous, whose realms profound are fix’d beneath the firm and solid ground,
In the Tartarian plains remote from fight, and wrapt forever in the depths of night;
Terrestrial Jove [Zeus Khthonios], thy sacred ear incline, and, pleas’d, accept thy mystic’s hymn divine.
Earth’s keys to thee, illustrious king belong, its secret gates unlocking, deep and strong.
‘Tis thine, abundant annual fruits to bear, for needy mortals are thy constant care.
To thee, great king, Avernus is assign’d, the seat of Gods, and basis of mankind.
Thy throne is fix’d in Hade’s dismal plains, distant, unknown to rest, where darkness reigns;
Where, destitute of breath, pale spectres dwell, in endless, dire, inexorable hell;
And in dread Acheron, whose depths obscure, earth’s stable roots eternally secure.
O mighty dæmon, whose decision dread, the future fate determines of the dead,
With captive Proserpine [Kore], thro’ grassy plains, drawn in a four-yok’d car with loosen’d reins,
Rapt o’er the deep, impell’d by love, you flew ’till Eleusina’s city rose to view;
There, in a wond’rous cave obscure and deep, the sacred maid secure from search you keep,
The cave of Atthis, whose wide gates display an entrance to the kingdoms void of day.
Of unapparent works, thou art alone the dispensator, visible and known.
O pow’r all-ruling, holy, honor’d light, thee sacred poets and their hymns delight:
Propitious to thy mystic’s works incline, rejoicing come, for holy rites are thine.
Watch the rare Moon occult Mars on February 18th
this occurs both astronomically and astrologically.
“Over a period of 90 minutes or so, Mars will disappear west-to-east across Canada. Projections from the International Occultation Timing Association call for the disappearance to occur in Winnipeg at 6:02 a.m. CST, in Toronto at 7:26 a.m. EST, in Montreal at 7:39 a.m. EST, in Halifax at 9:02 a.m. AST and in St. John’s, N.L. at 9:51 a.m. NST.
In all areas, Mars will be visible in the sky for about three hours prior to its disappearance and will reappear on the other side of the moon approximately 75 to 80 minutes after it vanishes – although the reappearance will be difficult to spot if sunrise has occurred.
Calgary is too far west to see the vanishing act, but will witness the red planet’s reappearance at approximately 5:59 a.m. MST. Ditto for Edmonton three minutes later.
The occultation will also be visible across most of the continental U.S., save for some parts of the West Coast, as well as Mexico and most of Central America.
“We’re not going to have another chance to see an occultation of Mars by the moon this whole entire year,” Hyde said. There will be four other occultations in 2020, all visible from the Southern Hemisphere.
The occultation will be too distant to be visible with the naked eye, but anyone with a telescope or binoculars will be able to spot Mars in its final moments before it vanishes and first moments after it reappears.” from article

Astrophysicists are speculating that there may be a second even larger Black Hole at our Galactic Center even more massive than the one we already know about. Doe this mean like a Gemini Black Hole now not Sagittarius one? The Galactic Center is in the Constellation of Sagittarius now in both Tropical and Sidereal reckoning. https://earthsky.org/space/supermassive-black-hole-milky-way-galaxys-center-may-have-friend
