It wasn't even two hours after I put my latest video up on You Tube about the ingress of Uranus into Aries when Japan had its worst earthquake and tsunami in over a thousand years.
What's more, Uranus represents everything that is unexpected, and who would have expected all these nuclear reactors to explode and every hour cause more danger to larger areas of Japan and possibly beyond. The Nikkei fell over 17% in the last two days, the largest fall in over 40 years.
I predicted we would see governments topple, authoritarian regimes being questioned especially by young people, and more uprisings in the Middle East. This has already begun with the recent toppling of the government in Egypt. The crowds came out, ready to fight for their freedom. Uranus is the planet that represents freedom, not willing to accept limitations of any kind and breaking out of boundaries to bring about something new. That's certainly what's been happening in the Middle East. The tension is high in so many countries: Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Egypt, Syria, Jordan and now in Saudi Arabia with its Days of Rage coming up. In Libya the fighting is increasing daily and the civil unrest could spread to other countries in the region.
My predictions included an increase in natural disasters happening out of the blue. In Christchurch, New Zealand, we have seen the third earthquake causing loss of life and devastation to the city within a period of just five months where seismologists had not even identified a faultline. It came as a total surprise and people were unable to prepare. The frequently restive Kilauea volcano on the island of Hawaii spewed a plume of lava 160 feet tall this week, more than twice as high as molten rock shot into the sky when eruptions flared anew this week. It's already destroyed 78 acres of rain forest since Saturday and buried 162 acres of park land.
Expect natural disasters to occur in many places around the world. My psychic, who got me out of Christchurch one month before the first earthquake last September, has been trying to get her clients out of Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippes; and from Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland. She does not feel these areas are safe and is urging people to get out while there is still time.
Now that Uranus has gone into Aries, we are going to see everything accelerate. Things will flare up suddenly and unexpectedly, and then there will be a period of seeming calm. And people may just be lulled into a false sense of security, when once again the explosive and volatile events start to happen with increasing frequency.
I've talked a great deal about the Cardinal Climax and the fact that this is one of the most powerful astrological configurations in hundreds of years. Now that Uranus has finally joined Pluto and Saturn which are both in cardinal signs, the seeds that have been planted over the last several years will come to fruition. We're seeing more impulsiveness. People who are wanting change right now but don't necessarily know what they want when they get it. Uranus in Aries can also be violent – look at the huge numbers of people who are arming themselves across the US. Only recently a mother shot her two children because they "mouthed off at her."
As I have said repeatedly, we are all interconnected, so don't think that the unrest in the Middle East won't affect you, don't think that the earthquake in Japan won't have an effect on you. We are going to see oil and gas shortages, power outages, food shortages. To the best of our ability we need to try to prepare. It's impossible to be prepared for every eventuality because Uranus is the master of surprise, but we can still make preparations such as having a store of water and food, having a small bag with important papers, a first aid kit, if you have electricity charge up your cellphone and your computers, and be prepared to help your neighbours or to be helped by them.
Wherever Uranus is transiting in your chart, you will experience sudden and dramatic changes in that area of your life. For me it's my 10th and 4th houses which indicates changes and shifts in my work area over which I have little or no control. With my Moon in Taurus wanting everything all planned out, this is not easy to say the least and I am trying not to hang onto the status quo and learning how to go with the flow.
Look at where it falls in your chart and link it up to the Cardinal Climax and you will see the four main areas of your life that will undergo huge changes in the coming months and years.
