Many of you will be aware of the difference between so-called Newtonian Time and Einstein Time – watch this quick clip for an excellent explanation or just take my Mercury-in-Aries parsed version. Both men were obviously genius physicists, separated by centuries and hugely influential. Isaac Newton was a Saturnine Capricorn and Einstein a Pisces with a whole heap of astral vibe in the 10th house. AKA legacy.
Newton’s version of time was that it was immutable and absolute – it acted upon us, like it or not. Cue untold Gothic poetry. “Gather ye rose buds while ye may, old time is still a flying” and all that. For hundreds of years, Newton Time – or what i think of as more “Saturn Time” theory held sway. But then Einstein rocked up and introduced what i think of as “Uranus Time.”
Einstein/Uranus Time is not this consistent, steady force pulverizing away at everything – it’s something more akin to a magical force that interacts with us or even that flows from us. And as you know, a myriad – a multi-verse of quantum physics concepts have come from this.
I’ve personally experienced Uranus Time as when one phrase or a soft whiff of scent has folded time back in on itself and drastic, radical connections get made between one point in linear Saturn time and another. Synchronicity and Deja Vu are Uranus Time. We time travel in our dreams and we can do it every night if we wish.
I was talking about time and our perception of it with my friend, the very talented intuitive Jessica Snow – she emailed me this:
As for time, I get it. I feel time-crunched too. I am reminded of one section of that Upper Limit Problem book – The Big Leap. Have you read it? There is a whole thing where he talks about Newtonian time vs. Einstein time – basically that when you are in your Zone of Genius, time molds itself to you and your needs, that it is relative. (here is a video describing what he is alluding to It’s interesting, I think, to experiment with the idea that you, as powerful magician, can stretch time to fit your needs so you can do the things the universe wants you to bring forth.
Also, as someone who has been enjoying your prodigious output for the last few years, I can’t imagine you ever doing something halfway or in an untimely or non-Saturn-compliant way so yes, just maybe really giving yourself a bit of permission to focus more on the ‘eternal stream of things’ and that you don’t need to entertain the pressure aspect (which might be an energetic habit from a time when you were not as on top of your game as you are now).
That really struck me. Okay so i have strong Saturn AND Uranus in my astro – they are in opposition in fact. It’s possible that if you have one dominating the other, you would be more inclined to do Saturn Time than Uranus Time or vice versa. J.G. Ballard – a Scorpio who is one of my favorite authors – was obsessed with time themes. He returned to it again and again, most notably in Chronopolis but in any number of short stories where despotic governments tinkered with time and introduced strange variations of daylight saving. Ballard had Uranus in Aries square Saturn in Capricorn. Stephen “A Brief History Of Time” Hawking is Saturn-Uranus conjunct in Taurus FYI. Madeleine L’Engle whose novel A Wrinkle In Time is arguably one of the most original and out-there science fantasies for children ever – was Saturn in Leo opposite Uranus in Aquarius.
I think a lot of us also inherit or otherwise absorb a certain style of work ethic and time consciousness from our forbears – that if we’re not sweating it or harrowed, it’s not work or it should not be profitable. Alternatively that age (as in time) should weary us and diminish our capabilities. Uranus Time has none of that. The astrological Uranus scorns convention, of course, but it’s more than that. We need an element of Saturn Time to measure obligations such as tax or to suggest that maybe it’s time to retire our habit of getting s-faced at the club every Saturn’s Day night but it’s not always helpful.
The more you develop an astrological consciousness, the more you perceive in Uranus Time, broadly categorizing people by their Pluto generations rather than their age or noticing that Venus Vibe is back and happening.
Genuine rapport and chemistry is always experienced as Uranus Time – the energy exchange between you and another is such that time does not just fly, it’s suspended. With other sorts of engagements, time just plods. When you’re staring with disbelief at the clock in geography class or sneaking a glance at your iPhone to see if it’s reasonable to make your exit yet, you’re doing Saturn Time.
Time Management is Saturn Time – Time Witchery is Uranus Time.
