Frustrated, much?

To distract myself from pointless seething about how over my job I am right now, I decided to read the weekly ‘scope for my sun sign written by the ever-insightful Astrobarry. And felt immediately vindicated:

“…I’m definitely beginning to sense a ‘fed-up-ness’ emanating from you, Pisces,” he says, “As if you’re wondering when you might catch a break from the tangled web into which you’ve found yourself woven.”

Elsewhere Astrobarry discusses the Saturn-Uranus opposition, which is now apparently within a 5-degree orb and hence officially in force.

An opposition is exactly what is sounds like – on the current astrological chart, Saturn and Uranus are opposite each other. The effects of an opposition are, too, as you would expect – the two energies are literally opposing, or pulling against each other.

To me, Saturn is ‘the rules’ planet – work hard to reap rewards, put in necessary effort, look at the big picture, grow and progress according to lessons learnt. Uranus, however, is more of a maverick energy – calling on us to ring in big changes, bring on the new world, shuck off ritualistic behaviours, defy cultural norms.

With these two energies opposed, is it surprising, then, that I am ever-more-aware of the huge discrepancy between the-world-and-my-life-as-I-want-it and the-motions-through-which-I-am-forced-to-go-through? I guess not.

Of course the impact of this may be heightened or lessened depending on where these energies are ‘hitting’ areas in my own natal chart. Investigating this could well be my next project…

    Reading this I immediately recalled your Gemini ascendant. No wonder work is such a struggle for you at the moment – Uranus in Pisces at the top of your chart and Saturn down the bottom in Virgo. The opposition is pulling between your public working self (10th house) and your private home self (4th house). With Uranus in your 10th, the urge to just chuck in the day job and follow your heart is barely contained. But, contained it is – by Saturn in the 4th reminding you that you need a home; you need to be sensible, stable and secure.
    The Saturn-Uranus opposition is playing out between my 1st and 7th houses (Pisces ascendant) and is mirrored in my partner’s chart (Virgo ascendant). Strange times. My weapon of choice: patience.

    Aha! It’s like a little lightbulb has exploded inside my head. Thank you Aello 🙂
