A rare planetary conjunction occurs on July 31 – August 1 as Mars, Uranus and the North Node meet at 18 Taurus. I’ve talked about this a lot in the subscription, so you can catch more of my discussion on this aspect there. And I want to share some thoughts here as well.
Even though Mars meets Uranus every two years – and in fact it is the second of three conjunctions from Mars and Uranus in Taurus, the first occurred in January 2021 at 6 Taurus and the second in July 2024 at 26 Taurus – And while Uranus meets the North Node every 15 years or so (last in Pisces 16 in March 2007), it is unusual for Mars, Uranus, and the North Node to be together.
Planets in Taurus and 1855
For the exact conjunction between the three planets in Taurus we must turn our minds back to distant historical dates. However, there was a time in 1855 when Mars, Uranus, and the North Node of Taurus co-existed, which may be a useful historical period to review to help you better understand your experiences now. I will focus on astrology below, but I want to mention it for anyone reading history.
In March 1855 Uranus and the North Node were combined in Taurus. And from April 24, 1855 – June 3, 1855, Mars moved into Taurus, first meeting the North Node on May 10, 1855, and then with Uranus on May 17, 1855. A key difference between 1855 and now is that Pluto was still in Taurus then. And it isn’t now.
Fireworks and Growing Pains
From an astrological point of view, Mars, Uranus and the North Node look explosive and unpredictable together. When Mars and Uranus are in conjunction, there is a possibility of fireworks. Sometimes it is dramatic and unsettling and full of unexpected twists and turns. And at other times it describes the generally chaotic nature of rapid growth, progress, and change, where your frustration with the status quo and your sense of urgency that propelling progress may require radical change. It can mean pushing against systems, responsibilities or expectations. You usually follow.
Bring in the nodes and there is an intensity or compulsion that adds to it, which can contribute to themes of uncertainty or even unresolved and unresolved events and focus on the need to move forward. is, far from the ways of the past.
While on paper, and using technical astrological analysis, this may be considered challenging and difficult, the results can be worth the struggle, sweat, and temporary disorder. You know how sometimes things get messy before they get organized and organized? Or the way a situation that has become uncomfortable and unstable must be completely taken apart and rearranged before it gets better?
This aspect is like being in the middle of that process – the place where things fall apart, the different, the unknown and the uncertain. Where prospects are weak. Will you make it to the place you expected? Or will something unplanned mean a detour or the need to concentrate completely? For any of you who have given birth to a baby, you can recognize the process. For any of you who have turned your life upside down in search of a better, more authentic and more real, more like you life, this will sound familiar too. Growing pains are part of growth and progress.
Uranus in Taurus, North Node in Taurus and Mars
Another way to look at it might be to draw your attention back. Uranus in Taurus, 2018 – 2026 Feels like earthquakes and volcanoes. The main energy is being expressed from the ground up and outwards. This chakra changes the patterns that are established, fixed and stuck. Uranus is an air type planet and the areas of solid matter and life represented by Taurus are said to adapt, change and become more mobile over time.
Within that eight-year-long cycle, the North Node in Taurus (and the South Node in Scorpio) adds an additional quality of churning and instability, such as an increasingly intense signal from the universe to reshape what is most entangled. Must be given and re-created. The nodes are in Taurus and Scorpio from January 2022 to July 2023.
We can say that the most volatile and turbulent part of the long Uranus in the Taurus period is now the first half of 2022 and 2023, when the nodes also activate this sign. There is more uncertainty and urgency with Taurus themes – food and food supply, energy, climate and environmental issues, issues related to women, bodily rights and autonomy as well as matters related to feminine topics such as over-care of the family or home, pay inequality and many more. If Taurus is Earth, then the boundaries and boundaries between countries may also be in dispute or in flux.
Within that short 18-month time frame, Mars will combine its fiery and stimulating qualities in the Taurus/Scorpio axis only once, from July 5 to August 20, 2022.
Putting those three layers together, we arrive at this mid-2022 period, which is extremely volatile, volatile and uncertain. Wherever you go there may be some stressful news or developments for the process.
And, on the other hand, personal successes are happening. Changes in life are some by choice and some by circumstances. For some the long-awaited freedom is within reach, and for others, freedom seems to be moving beyond reach. Your personal experience with astrology at that time will depend a lot on your individual chart and circumstances.
pattern breaking and nature
I have received a lot of questions regarding this aspect. Yes, it is time to break the pattern and yes you may feel uncertain or sometimes even scared of what will come in the future. As the symbolic and in some cases the literal ground beneath your life trembles and shakes, it is pertinent to question where you are going, why you are moving there and whether it is still the right choice for you.
If necessary, take the gifts of Taurus to help you navigate late July and early August. lean out. Be in your body. Connect with nature and trees. Give yourself space to pause and review. If you need to break away from your regular rhythm to catch your breath or deal with temporary changes to your regular routine, that’s fine, too. Everything is flow. While this can be troubling, it also means that, in true Uranus style, many things that are not usually an option can be possible for a short period of time.
Venus in Cancer: Calm and Connected
One helpful quality I’ve noted in the aspects surrounding this electrical conjunction of the North Node in Mars, Uranus and Taurus is a sextile to Venus in Cancer, which falls on August 2, just after the intensity of the triple link. . Venus in Cancer raised and expressed as the meeting of Mars, Uranus, and the North Node may not be enough to heal or pacify everything, but it may be enough to calm, settle, and point the way forward. will help.
