Starcodes: April 19-25

Starcodes reading for the week of April 19-25, 2024

Fasten your seatbelt and roll with the changes. Jupiter conjuncts Uranus, the planet named after the god of procreative chaos. We feel this aspect all spring long, though it perfects this week. Mercury, now retrograde, turns direct next Thursday. The metaphorical dust will settle in the weeks ahead and allow us to see where we’re going, but this week we could feel unsettled, tossed in a blanket.

Any conjunction acts like a new Moon when the Sun and Moon align and begin a new monthly cycle. Jupiter expands and Uranus acts like the cosmic clutch; it allows, even insists, that we shift gears and innovate. Their conjunction approximately every 13 years synchronizes with real breakthroughs in science and technology, for better or worse, shifts in societal patterns, and often an urgent call for our own personal shifts. If we want to maintain the status quo, this aspect can be unnerving. If we want change, this aspect helps us manifest and adapt. And as this is occurring in an earth sign, it may synchronize with literal shifts in tectonic plates.

Let’s look at some examples – Uranus conjunct in 1914 in air sign Aquarius as WW1 began, it changed European social structure and brought new technology, including crude airplanes, into the war. In 1927 this conjunction in fiery Aries synchronized with the first papers on The Big Bang Theory along with the first transatlantic phone calls and plane flights. Jupiter and Uranus conjunct in 1941 in Taurus in the middle of World War II and correlated with changes in boundaries, political, technological, and societal upheavals. And in 1954 in watery Cancer it synchronized with the first mass vaccinations against polio, first organ transplants, and first article on the carbon dioxide theory of climate change, and a change in urban/suburban life. In 1968 Jupiter conjunct Uranus in relational air-sign Libra in the midst of the mid-60s social revolutions and the first crewed Apollo missions. 1983 conjunction in Sagittarius brought the public creation of the Internet and with it a new perception of the global community. The conjunction in 1997, in Aquarius, launched Google and Amazon went public. The 2010 conjunction in Aquarius occurred as Obama pushed our society forward and Zoom was founded.

This conjunction has been cooking as AI became a daily reality. Look for new tech in the pipeline, may it help avert the worst of climate change. Contemplate what good changes we can invoke in our personal lives.

So this week is full of change and potential surprises, don’t expect to get a clear picture of the arc until the dust settles in a few weeks. As Jupiter conjunct Uranus, anything is possible and major shifts are happening, we can stay alert to see how we can direct those changes into a good way. Let’s be willing to do our end of the homework to make it so. Mercury turns direct on Tuesday bringing all the swirling storms and shifting gears but can begin to help us see what’s been out of alignment, and move forward. Search for truth, safety, and healthy evolution rather than try to predict the outcome or stick to the map. Okay.
