Oppositions bring awareness.
Uranus can bring SUDDEN awareness.
Scorpio asks the questions,
but not the “same-old, same-old” questions.
Uranus throws open the door to reveal answers,
but “not the same-old, same-old” answers.
This is a time to ask new, powerful, life-changing questions.
So, the question posed above: “What is preventing me from simplifying my world”?
Scorpio might offer that you were taught by life that you were only appreciated when you were striving for something (the underlying truth).
Uranus might add a sudden recognition that you can be liberated from old expectations for what success and fulfillment look like and that you might be happier for it.
At its core, Uranus promotes awakening and liberation that result in greater authenticity. Uranus says that asking new questions can lead to awakening of new possibilities, new opportunities. Likewise, liberating, or letting go of the old habits that have held you back. As always, Uranus is interested in change, something new, something different and more authentic.
If you think of your role in the unfolding journey of your life, you are the author of your life’s manuscript, in the context of this New Moon, Uranus can be like the first page of a new chapter in the manuscript of your life where life can be different and feel more authentic.
One important note is that it is not about something different just to be different, Uranus wants you to find the authentic you! The core themes in your birth chart contain the messages from your soul of how to discover, embrace and honor your authenticity.
Uranus in Taurus wants you to discover what is important to you and to trust yourself!
Letting Go – Why is it so hard?
Since both Scorpio and Taurus are fixed energies, they do not naturally want to simply let go.
One key to loosening their grip is to understand that can be clingy, like that sticky pull of ego. It feels so real, but is actually an illusion.
If we hold too tightly to an image of ourselves that is not serving us or is not authentic (meaning, it is based on an illusion of self), then we limit the ability of energy, like the energy in a new moon, to penetrate through the “glue” that binds us to the illusion.
