A Unique Cosmic Conjunction is Happening This Month
A triple conjunction is headed our way between Mars, Uranus, and the north node in the constellation of Taurus — a conjunction we haven’t seen in nearly 170 years. This could mean that big changes are coming.
Between July 26 and August 1, we’ll see a three-party astrological conjunction, between Mars, Uranus, and the north node in the constellation of Taurus. Mars and Uranus unite every couple of years, but the north node does not. In fact, this conjunction in Taurus has not been seen since 1855.
So, what does this mean for you? Astrologer Mercedes Arnus Arraut breaks it all down.
“To understand this a lot better, let’s put it into order,” she said. “So, Mars is the energy activator, it’s our drive. Mars is an accelerator of events, whatever it touches it accelerates and turns it on. Then Uranus is the planet of awakening, it wakes you up with whatever experience is happening. Uranus is very unpredictable, so it acts without us having any control over it because it’s the rebel; it’s the energy of the new — the innovation. So, we don’t really know what’s going to happen with Uranus because it’s going to give you a new experience.”
“The north node is an astrological point that is found by an axis,” Arnus Arraut said. “This axis is found by the crossing of the orbit of the Moon around the Earth and the orbit of the Earth around the Sun. This axis is conformed by the north node and the south node. In this case, the north node is like a gateway, it’s like a door. So, by Mars and Uranus arriving at this astrological point, that acts like a door, and in Vedic astrology is known as the ‘head of the dragon’ hungry for knowledge and experiences. What we can see is that we’re attracting experiences in our life that come in the form of accelerated events, that bring awakening into our lives.”
How does the energy of Taurus play into this conjunction?
“Taurus is the energy of life, animals, Earth, finances, abundance, wealth, and it’s teaching us we can all be wealthy if we learn to stay present, grounded, and give value to what we have in order to live in this life,” she said “So, if we value our life and we feel like we’re valuing the planet, all situations will guide us into experiencing a lot more fun, a lot more pleasure, so that we learn to enjoy ourselves. It can be very exciting and everything that’s happening is so that we learn to give value to our own life on this planet.”
We may start feeling this energy as early as July 5. How should we be prepared for this potentially destabilizing push?
“It would be good for us to know that people are going to be acting very impulsive, erratic, not-themselves; bear it in mind so that you don’t take it personally,” Arraut said. “Whatever happens, we’re all going through crazy shifts and energy activations. Life is taking us to change, learn new things, and do things we’ve never done before. It can be very scary and fearful. Events like that, what it does is bring people closer together because there are greater things happening outside. It creates a sense of community and a sense of helping each other out to make a better world and create a better planet.”
How do we take advantage of the energy at this time?
“This is like an event accelerator for everything happening on our planet. So, to take advantage of it, I’d say it’s a very good time to bring a new reality into your life, to feel like you’re evolving, feel like your business is growing like your family is expanding, that you’re learning a lot about yourself and your current reality,” Arnus Arraut said.
“You’re expanding into a world that you didn’t know you were going to be expanding into. There is a sense of healing in the world, so medical advances and new technology that is going to guide us into, really, a new way of living a lot more consciously.”
The Astrological Implications of This Week's Rare Planetary Alignment
A rare planetary alignment is occurring over the next few weeks. Read on to learn how you can see it, what it means for you energetically, and how you should prepare.
Since the end of March, Venus, Mars, and Saturn have appeared to group together. But starting April 17, Jupiter will appear forming a row of planets in a line. It will be most visible in the predawn sky of April 20.
That is the astronomy of this celestial event, but what about the astrological implications?
“These last two weeks of April, we have something very special going on,“ astrologer Mercedes Arnus Arraut said, “I know that astronomically we can see Saturn, we can see the moon, we’re going to be able to see Mars, Venus, Neptune, and Jupiter aligned. But what we should really be focusing our attention on, at least astrologically, is Venus in Pisces going through Jupiter and Neptune — and Mars is going to be doing the same around a week later.”
How does the energy of each individual planet come together in this alignment?
“So to understand this we need to understand that Venus is the planet of relationships, love, value, money, self-worth. Mars has to do with our energy and drive, it’s an energy activator and it’s aligning with Jupiter too, which is expansion, exaggeration. Neptune has to do with spirit, aether, loss, and dissolution of veils,” she said.
