The Sun And Uranus Together On Aries 21: A Boxer Entering The Ring And Aries 22: The Gate Opens To The Garden Of All Fulfilled Desires
The Sun and Uranus are on the same degree today, and, being the Sun and Uranus, in Aries, on The Boxer degree, well, this is rather archetypal and energising, certainly it can get us going in life…and, the energies can be rather confrontational. We may have a big push to step up to the plate, or, to defend ourselves, take something on, answer the call, realise our true desires, etc.
The Sun and Uranus are on Aries 21: A BOXER IS ENTERING THE RING
This Symbol shows that there may be a temptation to take on issues, even to fight, but it needs to be with dignity and regulation. You may feel a need, or the urge, to step up to the plate and take something or someone on. There are rules to follow and often others will be end up being the judge of the final outcome. Make sure you possess the skills and training to defend what you believe. Remember that sometimes you need to back off if you’re not winning a contest. Question: are you more on the attack or on the defense?
Physical or psychological self-assertion and determination. Fighting for one’s emotional, psychological or physical space. Being a contender. Entering the ring or the arena.
The Caution: Using power to dominate people or those who challenge you. Wanting to knock people out. Storming in and taking over. Looking for combat. Being combative.
The following degree, the Quest Degree, is a fabulous one, and it speaks about stepping through the gate. I have long seen The Boxer and The Gate To Fulfilled Desires as being a binary – they seem to work together. Many times, I have described these two as ‘stepping up to the plate and stepping through the gate’.
The Sun’s next pit stop – and, Uranus will be on this degree soon – is Aries 22: THE GATE OPENS TO THE GARDEN OF ALL FULFILLED DESIRES
This Symbol brings up fabulous opportunities and possibilities. You could find yourself in beautiful places with your desires met. There can be the promise of happiness; stability and feeling like you’ve arrived where you want to be. At times, though, you may be right at the point of what you want, but perhaps you need to make the deliberate action of opening the gate; admitting to your self what you want and where you want to be. Perhaps you need to knock, showing your intention of wanting in. Maybe you already have everything you need – look around.
Craving for happiness. Gardens. Pathways to joy. Rewards and treasures. Domestic bliss. Passages to a better life. Acquiring property. Realizing luck and wealth. Utopia.
The Caution: Denying the right to receive just rewards. The grass always being greener on the other side. Always wanting more and more. Possessions owning you. Cup half-empty or half full.
So where are you now when it comes to where you want to be? There may be some frustrations around, particularly as Mercury is on Taurus 8: A SLEIGH WITHOUT SNOW
This Symbol implies having the vehicle, but not the fuel, the gas or energy to get the vehicle going or make use of what’s available. It speaks about seasonal variations where things available some times are not available at others. You may have to make the most of situations without much help. Are you expending energy trying to make things work in difficult conditions? You can often fuel things by tapping into your imagination. What adjustments or improvisations can be made? You may sometimes need to wait until the time is right, to have the ‘fuel’ to complete your mission.
Independence from outer circumstances. Anticipating future conditions. Having no money or resources to move forward. Filling up your tank. The value of timing.
The Caution: Forcing your ideas or feelings even when you know the time is not right. Lack of environmental support. Missing connections. Right thing in the wrong place.
Very soon, Mercury will move onto Taurus 9: A CHRISTMAS TREE IS DECORATED AND SHINES IN THE DARKNESS – and this may be a big part of the solution – to see what you have around you, to celebrate your friends and family – to see the connections and the joy and goodwill available to you…
This Symbol speaks of the joy and togetherness of celebrations such as Christmas. It shows the need for experiencing or accepting family and friends and celebrating cultural ties, and enjoying release from more difficult times. Activities of the group will bring joy to all those who participate or pass close enough to see. Gathering people together in a common cause in order to celebrate festivities and a sense of family can enliven everyone and give them hope. Joy will spread and life will be celebrated.
The fruits of one’s culture. Warmth within although it may be cold outside. Festive seasons and giving and receiving gifts and good wishes. Family and friends. Angels.
The Caution: Loneliness. Unfulfilled longings for family togetherness. The pretence of happiness or success in a show for social reasons. Only doing the externals. Commercialism.
How will you step forward to the things you want? Do you have to jettison some things along the way? Are you prepared to accept happiness and fulfillment into your life? Sometimes, the feeling of having it precipitates the actual arrival of it! 🙂
