Revolutionary Uranus has been retrograde since August 19 and finally turns direct today in Taurus. During this time, we can expect major shifts to happen in our lives, particularly around our finances and sense of stability. Instead of resisting change, try to embrace it. Uranus is called the “great awakener,” so be prepared to see things from a different perspective, one that could rock your world for the better.
For those who live for stability, this could be an intense time. Relationships and situations could shift in unexpected ways. If you want to make the world a better place, this is the time to implement change and growth.
The caveat is that you could feel the weight of such matters on your shoulders, which can make you anxious and irritable. Your heart is in a good place; however, you just have to learn to balance out these energies.
The north node of destiny enters Taurus, bringing the south node into Scorpio for the next year and a half. This will be a time of wisely investing one’s finances and working smarter, not harder in all areas of life, especially in love, career, and friendship.
Uranus stations direct today in a relatively stirred up and impatient environment. Although the speed of perceptible changes will eventually begin pick up as Uranus starts to speed up next month, we should not expect to see the kind of transformation that we seem to want to see today. Today’s focus is more likely to be on personal comfort and may quickly veer into a variety of self-indulgent excesses. As the Moon’s light begins to wane, we are likely to prefer some security rather than change. But today’s impatience is likely to keep us uncomfortable with a general sense of dissatisfaction or even hopelessness. Our best level of comfort is likely to be found in some kind of intellectual detachment that allows us to set aside ego concerns and impatience.

2022 LUNAR CALENDAR
JAN 17: FULL MOON IN CANCER: Your feeling of safety is now related to your home, family and related activities such as cooking and gardening. You may be prone to emotional fluctuations; you should learn to forgive and forget in order to avoid depression from thinking too much about things. Your perception of the world can be very subjective; try to create a certain distance without being bitter. Due to your rich emotional manifestation you can create a real sense of belonging in the world.
JAN 25: LAST QUARTER MOON IN SCORPIO: Moon in Scorpio creates the need to delve into your feelings as deep as possible. You desire meaningful emotional exchanges now more than at any other time even if it is not easy and you are forced to change many things. Shallow relationships do not satisfy you, because they are not purifying enough.
Hovering gracefully, the seahorse observes with the perspective of one who is not engulfed by the drama, remaining at a distance from all the turbulence. Seahorse Spirit appears at this time to remind you of the need to be neutral and gain perspective. Your message from Seahorse Spirit is: “Not my circus, not my monkeys.”
Spirit wants you to know that even if you are tempted to jump into the fray and try to fix things, the best way to serve yourself and others right now is to remain calm and simply watch and see.
Another message here is that whatever your query, Seahorse Spirit asks you to step back from it, be willing to explore things from different angles rather than a single one, and just observe what is possible.
From the perspective of the position of the neutral observer, you will discover a myriad of opportunities and a deeper understanding of what you seek and why—and you will know beauty, truth, love, and wisdom.
