Earthquakes Ahead: Unsettling the Stable
If one could create a visual of the energy of the Sun in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus, an earthquake would suffice. Normally, we go outside and place our feet on the ground with this innate understanding that the ground is solid and secure. We typically don’t worry about the ground falling out from underneath us. Now, just imagine all of a sudden while walking the ground begins to shake until the foundations that we are standing upon crumble beneath us suddenly taking away our sense of security of the ground we thought was always so intact.
It is likely under Sun in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus that our physicality such as physical security as well as our mental perceptions are shaken creating discomfort that requires acknowledgment and adjustment.
Much Needed Bolts to Release Ruts
Even with all of these uncomfortable feelings at this time, tense, square energy always has a higher purpose. We aren’t pushed out of our comfort zones with the easier energies of a trine or sextile. It is through those uncomfortable astrological aspects such as the square that we are forced to acknowledge what doesn’t feel good to us. Such as the case with the Sun in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus.
Due to the influence of Aquarius/Uranus energy, unexpected events may require us to reconsider our strong and comfortable foundations that are so familiar. While this may be unsettling, perhaps this energy is needed to move us out of complacency and comfortable ruts. Maybe we have a particular mindset or perspective that requires an adjustment through shocking information so that we can gain greater insights on what makes us truly secure. Perhaps we are too attached to the idea that things make us secure or so comfortable with our experience that we don’t seek out perspectives and experiences beyond our own.
The energy of Uranus has a way of giving us much-needed bolts to release us from the ruts that are often associated with complacency and stubbornness that leads to inertia and a lack of growth.
Anxious & Not Ready for Change
Let’s face it. Who really wants to be rocked hard from their comfortable position? It’s similar to having someone shake us out of the comfort of a deep sleep. It’s not the best feeling, and it can leave us on edge. The energy of the Sun in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus can present changes that sometimes we’re just not ready for…or so we think. This is where harnessing the open-minded perspective of Uranus energy is important.
Perhaps we are holding tight to limited perspectives, experiences, places, and people that are no longer conducive to our progression. Uranus’ unexpected bolts have a way of getting us to consider something different that could potentially be quite beneficial to our bottom line.
Additionally, Taurus energy doesn’t like to take risks especially after its spent so much time pouring into its creating a secure foundation. Also, you can be sure that because of the fixed nature of Taurus, any foundation built is a solid one which makes it that much harder to release the rut. Unless of course, we’re dealing with the electric lightning bolt energy from Uranus/Aquarius and then even strong foundations can give way!
No matter what happens, harnessing a broad perspective with the mindset that there is a greater benefit beneath the chaos, tension, and anxiety of the Sun in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus is important.
Making the Most of Tense, Curveball Energy
How do you make the most of unsettling, anxious, tense planetary energy such as Sun in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus? Flexibility. If you look closely at the signs of Aquarius and Taurus, there is the commonality of fixed energy that makes progression difficult. Whether this is energy shows up as having a fixed mindset like Aquarius or Taurus’ propensity to stick to their own personal value system, it is hard to progress when space is not made for new energy.
Due to the nature of Uranus, shifts happen through the unexpected because there’s no time to prepare. We must deal with whatever comes our way with the resources we have, and sometimes those resources may not be able to sustain us. Sometimes our perspectives just won’t see us through. So, the only way to progress is through an internal shift that is reflected externally. Whether this is a change in financial resources out of the blue or finding out that something isn’t quite what you thought it was and now your whole perspective is rocked, Sun in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus says the curveball is coming, so stay open to make it through.
All you can really do is take what you can from this energy. If something makes us feel anxious, tense, and unsettled we can ask ourselves why is this occurring so that we can acknowledge it for progression. True to the energy of Aquarius, it is through the willingness to be open to different viewpoints and perspectives and releasing the alignment with the status quo and traditional that we are able to make the necessary shifts that can ultimately offer increased awareness and progression that has the potential to be more meaning than the ruts of inertia that we are determined to hold on to.
