In his 84-year orbit Uranus spends seven years in each sign, each defining a period of LGBT history. On May 27 he moves into Aries, signaling a major turning point. DADT should fall soon, but there will probably be some backlash, and that’s just the beginning! .
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Your entire life is about to turn upside down. In the next seven years you will be even more rebellious than ever, trying new looks and attitudes. Strike the word “never” from your vocabulary and replace it with “not yet.”
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): You will experience spiritual epiphanies and great inner changes invisible to others, and probably hard to explain. Your dreams may become more vivid, even electric. Intuitive flashes, disconcerting at first, will come clearer with time.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Prepare to meet a whole new set of friends! As you encounter new political ideas, think them through and look for historical precedents. Idealism needs to be balanced with solid grounding. If you have that, you can change the world.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): Your career can take a whole new direction. In these crazy, uncertain times you may as well go out on a limb. It could be disastrous not to. To pursue your dreams, lay a solid foundation, plan ahead and go for it!
LEO (July 23 – August 22): Crazy times need crazy ideas. Old ideas got us where we are, and you may have the brilliant spark needed to inspire a solution. Study, explore, argue and draw out new perspectives to share with people who need to hear them.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Study the myth of Demeter and Persephone. Although your sign is more like Demeter, you will be dealing with underworlds of eros and death. Embrace new insights for their power to heal, cleanse and resurrect.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): All your relationships will turn upside down. You can only hold on to them with an open heart that allows transformation on both sides. Learn to be more strong and independent in order to be a better companion and support.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Be especially careful of headaches, accidents to the head and nervous tics. Even if they seem minor, they could be the beginning of big trouble. Dissatisfaction at work will lead to trouble. Make sure to have a job you really enjoy!
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): The same old stuff is going to get boring. Welcome new creative directions and styles, sports, entertainments, even sexual fun. Consider having children or paying more attention to your inner child.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Your domestic situation will start becoming very volatile. Patience, improvisation and rolling with the punches are important at first. Learning to control the situation to your advantage will take time and experience.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Your brain is getting ahead of you and can trip you up. Be especially careful in any kind of transit, or any time you open your mouth. A new language, computer skill or something you can start from elementary beginnings will help a lot!
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Whether rags to riches or vice versa, expect big changes in your financial situation. Make a list of what’s important in your life, but keep it in pencil. As reality hits theory your values will change big time.
