I have a couple of announcements involving Uranus I’m excited to share. I was recently interviewed by astrologer Christina Caudill on her Radiant Astrology Podcast about Uranus. We ended up having a long talk and it is being released in two parts. The first part released I am sharing below, and focuses primarily on the ingress of Uranus into Taurus, some of the collective threshold events in correspondence (volcanic eruptions and Gaza strip conflict), and the interplay between Uranus in Taurus with the upcoming Mars retrograde in Aquarius. I’m not sure when the second part will be released, but in it we will also be discussing the ingress of Uranus into Taurus with special attention paid to experiencing Uranus transits on a personal level, in particular the Uranus opposition that everyone born with Uranus in Scorpio will be experiencing now. Check back on her podcast in the week or two ahead to see when the second part will be released. Here is a link to the first part:
I was born with Uranus at the beginning of Scorpio, and I’ve already experienced my first major Uranus opposition event: due to the cancellation of another speaker, I was selected to give an additional talk at the upcoming United Astrology Conference. Fittingly, I will be talking about Uranus oppositions, and so not only is this appropriate due to me going through a Uranus opposition right now, but I also have to put it together at the last moment at Uranian speed!
For those attending, I will be speaking on Saturday 26 May at 9 am. Description:
Radical Awakening: Uranus Opposition
The Uranus opposition that occurs as we enter the mid-life of our forties has a deservedly dramatic reputation. Known as a lightning strike of revelation within cycles of personal development, it brings shakeups that upend the previous status quo of our life. This talk will explore ways to respond to the liberating impulses that arise in correspondence, as well as its connection to transits involving Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto that lead into it.
Also, my first talk at UAC will be taking place on Friday 25 May at 11 am. This talk is about Mercury in the Secondary Progressed chart, and will be focused on teaching the meaning found within the secondary progressed synodic cycle of Mercury, an aspect of interpreting progressed charts that brings in a vital element in addition to other aspects such as focusing upon the progressed lunation phase. Description:
The Light and Shadow of Mercury in the Secondary Progressed Chart
The changeable nature of Mercury is found in its synodic cycle and its shifts between being direct and retrograde. The meaning of Mercury’s cycles will be applied to the secondary progressed chart, where Mercury’s movement across a lifetime demarcates vital periods of personal development. Gray will explain how to interpret the shift of progressed Mercury from being direct to retrograde and vice versa, and what to pay attention to in relation to the natal chart.
If you are coming to UAC, I hope to see you there. Make sure to come up and say hello. It would be great to meet any of you who will be there in person!
