For the past few weeks, I’ve been intensely focused on collecting articles about all things Uranian for the International Astrology Day Blogathon. Donna Cunningham, Mandi Lockley, and I are coordinating three days focused on each of the bad boy planets in the cardinal t-square ~ Pluto, Saturn, and Uranus.
I have a fondness for Uranus. He’s the ruler of my chart and has close contact with both my sun and moon, not to mention lots of other little squigglies in my chart. He’s very close kin, if you know what I mean. Because of those apron strings he so proudly struts around in at my house, I think I know him very well. Well, he has a knack for surprising even me, and it’s his ability to continuously surprise us that makes him so interesting. He has an electric personality.
The articles in the Uranus collection (Uranus in Aries: Claiming a Self-Reliant Future) will be great tools for getting to know Uranus very well. You’ll see many of the pies Uranus has his finger in and, once you’ve had a look at the amazing articles and media written and presented by some truly gifted astrologers, you’ll be able to identify him any time you encounter him in a line-up. He’ll be the one standing on his head.
The IAD Blogathon begins on March 19th, the first day of Spring, when the Sun enters Aries. Donna Cunningham will present “Pluto Problems Got You Perplexed? Here’s What to Do!!” followed by Mandi Lockley‘s collection of articles, “Take Care of Saturn and Saturn will Take Care of You.” These are stunning collections of articles, and I promise you will not be disappointed. You’ll also be treated to some special features, including a Gallery Opening of Cosmic Art by Jude Cowell, Astrology and Flower Essences Article Collection, The Astrologers’ Memorial Collection of Sound Bytes, and Multi-Media Takes on the T-Square.
March 19th is the official 2010 International Astrology Day. Check to see if your local astro society has an event planned. The Association for Astrological Networking (AFAN) has great ideas on how to participate at the local, even solo, level. Take a look at the AFAN homepage to get some great suggestions for events in your community.
The IAD Blogathon will give you plenty of insights on how to handle these bad boy planets and prepare you for their party in your chart. None of these guys leaves a party early, so get ready to host them at your house and you’ll be waking them up to go home instead of wondering when they’ll ever leave.
