We Are From The Future

Filed in Uncategorized

Wow how much – seriously – has our culture been morphing since Uranus got into Aries mid-2010? And for the purposes of this post, i am leaving Pluto in Capricorn, the Zap Zone and associated Global Financial Fuqery right out of it. Though you can go to the G.F.F category or read Feng Shui Your Wallet if you’re interested.

But innovative, future-seeding, iconoclastic Uranus in Aries, home of the brave & sign of the brazen, self-creating pioneer? Well, okay i am thinking that we have, are having and can expect still more major morphs in everything: Love, Money & Health being the three most obvious, though of course there are more.

There is now such a schism between mainstream media/conventional wisdom and what a lot of peeps think/feel/believe that the latter two have become acronyms: M.S.M & C.W.  Meaning that they’re generally kind of analogue where-as we all know we need to be thinking digitally now.

Paleo, Ultra-Vegan, Intermittent Fasting & a whole host of other similar movements are turning the government/agriculture mandated food pyramids on their heads – like literally, basically. Bodywork, Nutrition Knowledge & our basic beliefs have evolved at warp speed since 2010.  Personally i’m warping it even more by managing to be Paleo-Vegan (yes, i know i would have gotten eaten in actual cavemanly times) doing MMA and the super-magic network chiro.  These guys are doing techniques that just were not known of a few years ago. And the idea that a lot of us have been deliberately hooked on carbs to sedate & fatten us up is hilariously Uranus in Aries. So, i guess, is Crossfit. ‘Holistic’ as a buzzword has been replaced by “Hardcoreness.’

There are a LOT of peeps out there articulating the brave new Uranus in Aries money ethos – The Fastlane Millionaire guy being the most obvious and current manifestation of this idea that you can’t trust the MSM or CW on finances. Other tenets: that the sharemarket has become this machine run/1% benefitting nightmare that the populace has pulled out of except for when they’re forced into it by law and that the model of going deeply into debt slavery, work your arse off doing something you hate and then bunk off for 30 or whatever years is basically flawed. See also Macrobusiness, Four Hour Work Week and Zero Hedge.

Love-wise, there is a groundswell of peeps coming through who find conventional relationships claustro and are devising their own, more real romantic/sexual/mating/dating scenarios. From chaste so as to get fit & rich to polyamorous, living-together-apart, single but with a discreet lover…it’s all happening. It’s driven in large part by the increasing independence (emotionally & financially) of females. Hard to be a Love Zombie if you’re genuinely self-reliant and can afford to go shopping, see a shrink or school and raise your kids on your own.

If you clicked through to check out all these links above, you would have an epic swift blast of Uranus in Aries for sure. In fact, DO it.

But also what are your thoughts?  We’ll rest when Uranus is in Taurus…March 2019. If we can keep up this pace of Awesomeness (and obviously we can) imagine how hardcore we will be in 2019?

Woops, was meant as a reply to Lux Interior.

Yeah, I guess they’ve gotten more mainstream cred lately.

However the masses in my town are busily subsisting on cheap junk food and will probably continue to do so ad infinitum.

Please don’t be so hard on carbs. We don’t all have systems that can deal with with carb-free-caveman diet—If I don’t eat carbs, I go into a diabetic coma.

A truly awesome book is “Honey Mud Maggots”….GREAT stuff. It will get you smearing saliva on your wounds and urine on your face like nothing else! Seriously, mandatory reading.

I’ve sworn off working with the government and gave up a hefty raise to avoid working with a defense agency. My new client is in the pharmaceutical industry, which is the most ruthlessly for-profit business I’ve ever known. Terrifyingly for profit. In any case, they are actually developing a new business model. Start-up, super nice people, with a desire to share info with people who need it. I mention it because we’ve seen so many business models crash/change/evolve once the distribution channel changed (news, music, books online). And its just the tip of the ice berg.

“We could make an epic catalog of male achievements, from paved roads, indoor plumbing, and washing machine to eyeglasses, antibiotics and disposable diapers. We enjoy safe, fresh milk and meat, and vegetables and tropical fruits heaped in snowbound cities. When I cross the George Washington Bridge or any of America’s great bridges, I think: men have done this. Construction is a sublime male poetry. When I see a see a giant crane passing on a flatbed truck, I pause in awe and reverence as would for a church processions.” — Camille Paglia

Thanks so much for these links, Mystic, really useful! The book that was a game-changer for me is called ‘Good Health in the 21st Century’ by Dr Carole Hungerford. Dense but really well researched and accessible, it exposes all the merde about big pharma, illness and mass food production. I also have a fantastic naturopath who is down to earth and all about diet/what we can do for ourselves. Simplifying has been the key for me and the great thing about the proliferation of information is that people can pick and choose according to what works best for them. There… Read more »

oh yeah that’s meant to say dry but fry works too. Am looking for some hemp oil it’s meant to be a good sunscreen and I also want to use it because I want to support the people bringing this new phase of acceptance of the plant into the mainstream. I never use the SPF stuff I suspect it’s toxic and it depletes vitamin D. I just avoid the sun on the days when it’s too much and wear sleeves etc. Seldom get sunburnt. Does anyone know of any good hemp oil products?

YAY! Well done Mystic on achieving Paleo-vegan status – that is truly awe inspiring. I’ve thought about it as I was vegan until age 34 (sudden pregnancy-induced urge to eat meat and have been carb-free ever since) but cannot get enough protein as soy is off limits. So I stick with Primal Blueprint as outlined on your link above (marksdailyapple.com) and have been doing IF (intermitttent fasting) for over a year now and really love it. My whole tribe is now gluten free and paleo (no mean feat in this day and age as children are total carb addicts). Even… Read more »

do you know about vital greens pea protein TA? I’m not interested in any of that obsessive diet crap or the gym – ie: I’m not the classic target market for this kind of stuff, but it’s GOLD if you’re really busy and you need to keep the energy up without having time to cook/eat breakfast. Just bung it in the blender with a banana and bob’s your uncle. Also their mix that has all the other things in it is yummy – has pictures of blueberries etc. on it. mmmm

Didn’t know about it until you mentioned it A.

I WISH I could just swill a protein shake (or spirulina/wheat grass etc). I can’t drink anything but black coffee or water – it is weird. I put it down to ScAries Mother force-feeding me this horrible concoction made from brewer’s yeast, apricot nectar and yoghurt as a child.

But if I could do a liquid supplement I’d have to stay off the Pea powder as peas are on the Paleo no-no list for various reasons. Yes, I am one of those obsessed health nuts :).

Virgo Ellie, never trust anyone who says “no one understand but I do” even if you are the one saying it. The astro is not supporting your relationship to Toro-Gem. Its been destroying it in layers. October was a big hit. The energy of that connection ended in a way then. You can gift his moon or whatever, but you don’t even really like him any more. You describe him as a man boy you pity.

I am at heart a Sufi mystic. Have you read Rumi and Hafiz? Some of the poems are brutal. Its rough to stay in love.

He said, ‘If you belong to me,
don’t talk of your own soul.’
I said, ‘Why do you cut me
with your sharp words?’
He said, ‘My words wouldn’t hurt you
if you weren’t in love with yourself.’”

It’s not feminism’s fault.

look at south africa… after apartheid now there’s a new caste of whites living in destitution and poverty because they were totally unprepared to make it on their personal merits, as opposed to just guaranteed a good job and home cuz white., meanwhile there’s a new class of affluent natives… its the same with men and women. we are for the first time moving into a society truly based on individual merit and most men seem bewildered and lost, and are failing to adapt, they are so accustomed generations deep that a man is guaranteed certain things in life just… Read more »

Merc at 0 deg Aries so had my conjunct back and forth last couple of years. I am communicating in a new way that seems to scare older folk while inspiring the youngsters, it’s been brilliant. It’s now conjunct my MC and heading towards my sun. Astrodienst describes Uranus conj MC as ‘revolt’ and as I’ve said here before I’m ready willing and able to do whatever it takes to overthrow the reptiles that have been running the show for too long now. Viva Uranus !! Viva la revolucion !!!

The more the merrier i say. Let’s have that coffee soon ? We could go shopping for guerrilla greens and berets ? Start on a manifesto over a few espressos and fine Cuban cigars ?
There is a lot to be done , I’m thinking deep purple berets ..so many details to be hammered out. x

I have saturn going over my MC this year which means conjucting my mars-northnode-saturn in 10th. a shot in the dark, opening possibilities, opening networks for career transformation goals.

I’ve never heard Saturn referred to as an ‘opener’ before but it will definitely bring focus.

Hey, I’m having a Mars opposition Uranus transit right now. I just checked, it is really REALLY exact this very moment, less than one arc-second orb. I am absolutely not going anywhere by car for a while. I noticed I encounter people who road rage at me during Mars/Uranus transits and I’m not even driving aggressively. Well, not THAT aggressively. Well, not that aggressively, for ME.

i’m having uranus opposite mars, and one interesting effect has been to understand the difference between things happening TO ME and being more assertive and MAKING THINGS HAPPEN (natal mars in libra in the 8th)

I have that square natally with opposition Uranus Merc and what an aggro driver i used to be. One year i nearly lost my license from all my red light fines. Used to have a hard time not mouthing off at cops as well – called on all my powers of Piscean – big eyes no mouth. You watch, staying out of the car won’t help. You’ll be having footpath rage. I’m terrible for overtaking people…on foot. A big tall guy at the airport recently laughingly called me a bully after i sideswerved him through a very narrow gap between… Read more »

I’m not even leaving the house this weekend, so no footpath rage. I’m not really a very aggressive driver, hell, I have Mars in Pisces which is pretty passive, and with my Mercury (god of short trips) in opposition to Neptune so I’m more likely to be daydreaming than raging behind the wheel. I thought I learned aggro driving habits when I lived in LA, but when I made a trip back to LA and rented a car, people constantly honked at me for not driving aggressively enough. I will note, however, that on Friday, I got on the freeway… Read more »

hey charles, my ex who has the same algol moon as you and uranus in the 12th is like this- he’s always feeling victimized because people lash out at him out of the blue (to his perception). but at least for him it’s because he’s so change-averse that he unconsciously ignores all the little signs and subtleties. a good bash on the head is all that gets through. cue shock and awe… for NOBODY but him.

…i have workout fatigue just from reading about it. Fill me with evocative music, feelings, spontaneity, inspiration, self-expression, authentic moves & I’ll bring Uranus in Aries into my freedom loving body & on the floor!

Yes, all ears for all this new, really self-empowered thinking. Connect to natural food, to your body, yourself, etc.

I do feel wrong-footed though when someone tries to inspire strength by completely blaming the preceding generation. My Aries brain can’t spare the energy it takes to blame something in the past for anything. I just want to ditch it and move forward.

Blaming some vague idea of ‘them’ feels like worshipping at a grave. Just give me my lettuce, dude! I’ve got things to do.

My kiddo was born in April 2010 and, I mean, alarming speed of life changing? yes. As I figure out on my own how to give her the best life, turns out that I’m learning how to take care of/be myself for the first time in my life. Looking forward to UR hitting my natal Mercury, Mars, Sun, and then Venus over the next few years. Massive Motherhood Identity Revamp and Self Expression Explosion.

Uranus is on my Mercury right now…Not to boast…as Aries are known to do, but, New Years day I was up at 4:30 am and went walking and then did my meditation and then did massage sheets all morning and chores… Today was up at 6 and did my walk, etc… I love mornings…I love going to bed early and getting up early and getting as much out of my day as possible. May be an Aries thing but this year I am going to kick arse with my goals… Romance is just a side line…and a fun one of… Read more »

yeah must be an Aries thing because I like staying up late and getting up late 🙂

I am so NOT a morning person…. I’m in my element in the dark and the stillness of the night, and just ADORE the sound of the wind rustling through the trees after everyone’s gone to bed. Divine! :D:

ho ho Merc in Aries here too…i’ve been sleeping in last few days…til 8am. My natural pre-illness alarm clock was 5. Childhood: woke every morning at 230am.

Very annoyed if can’t do exercise housework finances writing and astro before going to work. I think some people think i get up late, because of the hours they see me.

sleeping in til 8am! Hahaha…
I’m still in bed. When I’m not working, I like to get up between 9-10am. I need my 8 – 9hrs sleep. I’m a good sleeper and dreamer. Neptune conj Sun maybe? 🙂

I’m jealous! Cos now i need that much sleep too but it’s elusive.

I know many Scorps who sleep well. Do you think Fixed signs tend to sleep beautifully? Oh wait – not many Aquas i know have a stable relationship with Sleep.

Tropic of Scorp
Tropic of Scorp

yeah I reckon you’re right about the fixed signs. I know so many Aquas, Gems and a few Librans who constantly complain about insomnia. I guess it’s hard for the air signs to turn their brains off. 🙂

I hope sleep comes for you soon and you wake up in a state of bliss… like cats that stretch after hours of lounging around 🙂

Aquagem

Hah! ‘Stable relationship with sleep’! This aqua certainly doesn’t. 5 month old babe not helping but find I generally function best with 6-8 hrs. 8 is impossible these days but feeling pretty good if I get 6 hrs in a row!

I love transit of Uranus. For me, it’s really just about growing up and living, breathing. I’m not earnest and I don’t want to see everything as profound, intense, hardcore or awesome. It’s merely about becoming who I am and I can be mild, safe and steady, and take risks, evolve, be content and complex but love family, best friends, lover with all I’ve got, and thats alot. I’m living in an environment that still supports a number of illusions and delusions and it doesn’t support me as much as if i were a man – just reading about some… Read more »

The mass protests against the rape and murder of an innocent woman in India is a perfect example of a paradigm being turned on its head. I’m so excited that Indian women are finally finding their voice.

Uranus is my life coach. I’m a happily mortgage/debt-free newly single mum bringing up my two boys and relying on me, myself and I since 2010. I have created an exciting new business feeding off of the change situation here in ChCh, post quakes, and recently began a ‘friendship’ with a gorgeous Sagg on a no drama, attachment or needs basis which is working out very well, after dealing to a few negative beliefs. 🙂
Uranus hits my Aries in 2014 but the entire transit has been a radical rewiring and major upgrade transition so far for me.
