The rebel surfaces

If you're like me -- born between 1949 and 1956, with your natal Uranus in Cancer -- you may have been wondering what the blazes (!) is going on, with restlessness, impatience, and even anger coming up more consistently than usual lately.

That's how I've been feeling, and wondering what was wrong with me. You'd think an astrologer would automatically check the planets and her chart, right? But like everyone, I tend to get caught up in what's going on in life, so can take a few days to consider what energies might be at work.

But, suddenly this week, I realized -- but of course! Mars and Jupiter are both moving through Cancer right now, so are triggering the typical Uranian rebelliousness for those of who have Uranus in Cancer in our charts. And, with Mars in late degrees of Cancer now until the 27th, if you were born in 1955 or 1956, Mars is conjunct your natal Uranus for the next few days, so you may be more inclined to do something out of the ordinary.

For instance, this '56-er got her hair cut quite short today, a very different look for me. I'd been feeling the urge to take the risk for the past week or so, and finally went with it. A fairly tame way to express the Mars-Uranus rebel energy, but it feels good to break out of the box, all the same.

Any other stories, from you early- to mid-50s babies?



  1. Just had the Sun conjunct my natal Uranus, no major rebelliousness, but then I'm an Aquarian Sun, so a daily rebel :-)
    Real reason for posting? Your hair looks great, takes years off you! xx
