Uranus On The Double Promise Degree: Aries 25
Uranus is on a very interesting degree, especially in the light of the events going on in the world presently. It’s interesting that Mars is also turning direct in Scorpio, and, is in a rather stressful aspect with Uranus – a quincunx – I call this aspect the ‘itch that is hard to scratch’. Please do note that Uranus is going retrograde on this degree, making it doubly strong, and, making it one of the strongest degrees in the entire year.
Uranus is on Aries 25 – the following is from my book The Sabian Oracle: 360 Degrees Of Wisdom.
A DOUBLE PROMISE REVEALS ITS INNER AND OUTER MEANINGS
A wise man hears one word and understands two. Yiddish Proverb
Danger and delight grow on one stalk. Scottish Proverb
The reverse side also has a reverse side. Japanese Proverb
What a difference there is between what we say and what we think. Jean Racine
We must not promise what we ought not, lest we be called on to perform what we cannot. Abraham Lincoln
What’s important is promising something to the people, not actually keeping those promises. The people have always lived on hope alone. Hermann Broch
All promise outruns performance. Ralph Waldo Emerson
Words are words, explanations are explanations, promises are promises but only performance is reality. Harold S. Geneen
Never promise more than you can perform. Publilius Syrus
Commentary: ‘A Double Promise Reveals its Inner and Outer Meanings’ implies that what may at first have appeared to be simple will probably end up being more complicated than was first imagined. Things may look great on the outside, but internally there could be complications that should be considered. There may need to be an honest appraisal of what was actually said, thought or ‘Promised’, and what is actually possible in the real world.
Oracle: It may seem as though there are so many possibilities coming that could change your life on many levels, but ‘Promises’ are often more complicated than we initially think. Is this a situation with integrity or is it laced with duplicity? Look carefully at any ‘Promises’, or outcomes, that were assured or perhaps assumed in this situation. Did you expect more than was actually delivered? One’s rational understanding and emotional desires and responses can often conflict with each other. Consider the effects of the ‘Promise’ on all levels of your being. What comprehension, thoughts and emotions do you have surrounding what was said or implied? This Symbol often indicates a choice that arises between the heart and doing what you want to do and social obligation and knowing what’s right. There is much to be realized and learnt from the situation that has led you to the Oracle. There may be a need to draw another Symbol to get further information, to clarify and refine your direction.
Keywords: Rewards, but what do they bring with them? The possible implications of or reasons for any promises. Something that may look good on the outside, but prove to be difficult. Looking for consensus. Possibilities and promises. The ins and outs of situations. Not turning up. The need to look at situations from all sides. Internal vs. external realities. Catch-22 situations. Contracts.
The Caution: Fickleness, insincerity and two-facedness in human relationships. Expectations without clarification. Reversals of decisions or promises. Duplicity. Manipulating people in order to achieve outcomes. Promising more than can be delivered. Endeavours or projects that are not worth the effort. Lies and misleading statements. Having a hidden agenda. Momentary pledges that are soon forgotten. Contracts that bind.
