On October 3, as the Sun in Libra opposes Uranus in Aries, this could be called Cosmic Makeover Week. This transit could feel like your teenage daughter just told you she's been online chatting to guys in their 20s. It's disturbing, shocking and you're glad you know -- but wish you didn't.
Deep down, we all know that if everything stays the same, nothing will evolve. But that doesn't stop us from wanting to hide under the covers when we get unsettling news that challenges and shakes us to the core.
The Sun in Libra represents the quest for balance, harmony and justice. Uranus in Aries, on the other hand, demands that something new, exciting and completely out of the ordinary happen. Aries goes solo and Libra wants a partner, but they need each other. If we don't know how to be an individual, what will we have to give to our partners?
However, if we're overly self-reliant, we miss out because life is about relating. A good way to prepare for this energy in your home and family life is to switch up stagnant patterns. Rearrange the furniture, change up everyone's chores, eat pancakes for dinner --whatever feels a little out of the ordinary for you and yours.
Take this opportunity to see your family members and housemates with new eyes. Perhaps you could give those around you a little more credit, take less personally and know that what they do and how they do it is, for the most part, none of your business (save for children who still need parental protection).
Above all else, Uranus in Aries is an experimentation that is forceful and at times harsh. In order to find balance these days, we have to think outside of the box -- outside the laptop box. Get off your computer and get outside. Rake leaves, go for a hike and observe all the change that is occurring in nature and also in your family. Appreciate the stages of growth that everyone is in, and be willing to learn something new about them all --including yourself!
