Uranus-Eris: Remember, All Bets are Off

Standing Rock encampment at Cannon Ball, ND.

Dear Friend and Reader:

I’m taking a week off from a big article to focus my efforts on The Book of Your Life annual readings. Thank you to all the people who have pre-ordered.

I want to alert you to one vital issue developing in the news: the North Dakota governor has threatened to forcibly remove the Standing Rock protest camp, the one that’s there to block the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Encampment at Standing Rock protest, Cannon Ball, ND.

I suggest we take this threat seriously. I do not like the chart. It looks like a massacre. You’ve never heard me refer to a potential future event in this way.

I am not making a prediction. I am saying what I see in the chart, and understand is politically possible. And it’s something that we can take the power to prevent.

This is a real standoff, and both corporate and public officials are angered that the movement has gone on this long, or become as big as it is.

This, despite the fact that it’s getting next to no coverage anywhere but places like Planet Waves, Democracy Now! and other ‘alternative’ news sources. I cover it extensively in the newest edition of Planet Waves FM.

There are several key features to the astrology of 2017, though we’re currently living with the most significant of them: the rare conjunction of slow-moving planets Uranus and Eris.

If you’re still feeling mystified by this, please take a few minutes and read up about it. This article from June is short and succinct; it’s called Uranus, Eris and the Riddle of the Internet.

Change is catching up with us fast — with each of us as individuals, and with the grand experiment of modern society: that is, of freedom and of responsibility.

Astrology describes this beautifully — for those who are interested. Astrology is big enough to encompass anything, particularly if contemporary methods and planets are used. Best of all, astrology reaches into who you are as a person, and helps you see your options.

Are you being as direct about your emotional needs as you think you are? Step back for a moment and see if you can get some clearer perspective on that. You can always ask the person you’re relating to, including yourself, “What do you hear me asking for when I say [X]?”

Planet Waves Daily Oracle for Saturday, Dec. 3, 2016

Posted by Planet Waves


You have an extended opportunity to accomplish some great things, though to get there you must focus on the details. If you’re in a leadership role or even in a parental role, you may have to focus on the details of others. In either case you will need to go out of your way to do so gently. The sensation is persistence and setting an example rather than any form of aggressive leadership.

Together, the trio seems to suggest a situation where emotional placidness may actually be causing some intellectual tension for you.

It may not have been easy, but it’s likely you have learned at least one lasting and valuable lesson from another person this year. Interestingly, it’s just as probable you will be somebody’s equally influential teacher next year. In order to prepare for your new and more responsible role as an instructor in the future, work on what would have made you a better student in the past.
