Hungry Hungry Hippos (source: Toys R Us)

Uranus has parked itself in the sky within orb of a trine to my natal sun. Because the planet is about to go retrograde, I’m only going to get a taste of what’s to come over the next couple of years while this long-lasting transit casts its influence over me.

The interpretation of the aspect on astro.com is titled “Hungry for Change.” It reads as follows:

“Sometimes it is very upsetting to make fundamental changes in your life. But at other times you feel that change is creative and exciting, and this is one of those times. You are eager for change and hope it will lead you to a life that is more exciting, interesting and alive. You look to new ideas and new experiences for insights that will make your life more real. Consequently this is an excellent time to begin studying disciplines that will allow you to develop and grow as a human being. Such disciplines can include encounter or group therapy, yoga or other spiritual disciplines, astrology or any other subject that allows you to see yourself in a new light and to grow in consciousness.

You may encounter new relationships, new friends or even a new love that will allow you to be yourself more than ever before. Your everyday being is compatible with change now, and you are hungry for it in every possible way.

This is a good time to adopt a new physical regimen – a new exercise program, new health habits or a different kind of nutrition – that will allow your body to grow and develop. Break out of old physical habits that have been damaging your body. You might conceivably be able to quit smoking or drop some other physically debilitating habit at this time.

You will be successful in every way that you reach out to encounter new experience. Do not allow conservatism or insecurity to deprive you of this great opportunity. Now you can make changes that will make your life better later on.”

That’s all quite encouraging! The last couple of weeks have been good for me because I have felt as if changes I’ve made over the past couple of years have been paying benefits. Yet I’ve been inching toward my hopes and dreams, and none of the changes have been “exciting” because I’ve seen all of them coming. What I’m hungry for is an opportunity to come out of the blue.

Perhaps that will happen now that Uranus is moving into this position. With its retrograde cycle beginning in just a few days, the planet is going to back out of this aspect almost as soon as it makes its presence known. Nevertheless, I suppose I can expect some exciting changes over the next few years because it makes three exact trines over the course of ten months; I’m going to be experiencing this cosmic event through March of 2023. It’s also going to be interesting to evaluate how these changes will affect me considering that Uranus is about to form this trine with my natal sun from my Karmic eighth house. Maybe I’ve done something to deserve whatever is coming my way. I sure hope so!

Whatever happens, I’m hungry for it. The last couple of years haven’t been boring, but they’ve been boring me. I need this . . .
