'I am not a number, I am a free (wo)man!'

Thank you to the Prisoner for that quote...

Uranus moved direct on the 1st December. Uranus is the freedom seeking rebel fighting for individuality and Truth. Uranus is the lightning strike that breaks down barriers, and the innovator bringing new ideas and thought forms into use.

Uranus rules intuition and the 6th sense, and as we gradually become more and more aware and intuitive, we will become more interconnected with the Universal energies. So, Uranus reflects not only our innate human longing to know where we are going and why, but also our need to feel part of something bigger.

Uranus is the flash of inspiration that so often comes to us, and is the spark behind books, music, and new business ideas. In some ways we are not always conscious of these, but without them, we could not evolve or develop.

Uranus is always forward thinking, never looking back, this is why Uranus is the rebel and the revolutionary – forcing change, forcing new ideas and changing traditions.

Of course, many people find it so hard to freely express their Uranian nature, as to do so requires a great degree of detachment from taking a personal perspective. Instead we need to adopt a more collective or Universal perspective. This is quite alien to most people, and so many individuals prefer to keep their heads down and their individuality locked away. Even if we do manage to achieve a more ‘detached’ and individual approach to life then we get to see the whole picture, warts and all. Not everyone wants to even acknowledge that...!

In general though, Uranus always finds a way to seep into our lives, so ignoring this electric creative bundle of energy will serve little purpose. Change will occur – it might be hard, it might be challenging, but in order to grow and develop we need to embrace Uranus and the qualities that he brings.

Over the past few months each of us have been aware of the subtle changes going on within, which has been connected to us being more aware of our true Selves. This is down to Uranus, and he wants us to be unique, special and individual – because we are. When we can truly be our Selves, we can embrace the other Uranian qualities and allow our gifts and potential to truly flow.

On moving Direct, Uranus wants each of us to let our true colour and individuality shine. It is important to acknowledge our gifts and Truth, and to not be afraid to step out from the shadows for all to see.

Of course, freedom of speech and expression is not exclusively available around the world. In the West we often take for granted the ability to express our Truth, but there are many souls around the world (and some in the West) where such freedom is still not possible. But Uranus is the freedom fighter and will continue to fight for justice, free speech and freedom of expression.

Remember that in many ways Uranus is the planet of infinite possibilities, one person can create a chain reaction of change, one person can set in motion a new thought or idea that can literally send shock waves of new thought or changed behaviour around the world. It is only be embracing Uranus that these flashes of genius and insight can flow...

So for those of us who can be free, feel blessed for this and grab your individuality with both hands. It is time to take that leap of faith...
