Why we're feeling this way

This post is in response to a comment posted yesterday, which said: "Anyone Else Feeling Quite Anxious? Impatient? On Edge... a pit in the stomach? Last 2 Days. It is intensifying as the day goes on. Whaz up?"

Thanks for your comment -- I agree that emotions have been heightened again over the last few days, and we can relate that to both earth changes and astrological influences.

There was another major earthquake this morning, this time in China. I've noticed with the recent flurry of large tremors, a feeling of anxiety or emotions being more easily triggered for the few days before. With all of us getting more sensitive, it makes sense that we would be aware on some level when such earth movement is about to occur.

And, astrologically, we are getting closer to the fourth (of five) Uranus-Saturn oppositions. This is an aspect of tension, corresponding with major breakthroughs (and breakdowns) designed to move us forward and expand our consciousness.

All of us are working with this influence and feeling the tension of the opposition. It would certainly correspond with feelings of anxiety and anticipation.

And, anyone who has natal planets or points at 28 or 29 degrees of a mutable sign (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces) will certainly be feeling this energy strongly now, since it will be exact in just 12 days (on April 26). Does this apply to you?


  1. I could never understand Nostradamus prophecies but in May I always remember one of his enigmatic quatrains that starts with: "Sol vingt de Taurus si fort terre trembler Le grand theatre rempli ruinera," JeannetteFallah

  2. I've got my moon in Sag (27º29') and I find I sometimes cry a lot for no specific reason. On the 16th in the evening I was watching tv and suddenly anguish & tears pouring down. I think of this as some sort of shedding, as I have no reason to be depressed. What do you reckon?

  3. Hi Moon in Sag,

    Since the Moon represents our emotional bodies, and your Moon is being transited right now by both Uranus and Saturn, it makes sense (emotional "sense," anyway) that you might be experiencing unexpected (Uranus) manifestations (Saturn) of emotional release.

    Also, your Moon is conjunct the Galactic Center, putting you in alignment on deeper, unconscious levels with the energetic release work being done on a cosmic scale. So, you might be picking up and channeling the emotional anguish being experienced elsewhere on the planet.

    Saturn will work with your Moon through the end of May and then gradually ease off, at which time we would expect the teariness to also ease. However, Uranus will revisit your Moon in October and then January 2011, indicating that the sensitization process, which is opening your psychic pathways, will continue for the rest of 2010.
