Uranus (source: NBC News)

I’ve been feeling emboldened the last couple of days. The stars are on my side right now, and I can feel it deep down in my soul.

Curiously, a once-in-a-lifetime event is about to occur in my horoscope. This Sunday morning, just before I board my plane to Las Vegas, Uranus will slip back into my seventh house for a six-month stay. At the moment, I’m really not sure what to make of that retrograde pass over a house cusp, but I do believe the universe is trying to tell me something.

Over the past few years, I’ve become increasingly aware of just how shitty many people in my orbit can be. Only recently, however, have I come to grips with the fact that I don’t even need to acknowledge that they share this solar system with me. I can be perfectly content within my own little world without allowing their fucked-up opinions to steal my sunshine.

As the saying goes, “Opinions are like assholes: everyone has one.” Uranus’ transit through my seventh house roughly corresponded with the rise and fall of Donald Trump, and that era taught me a lot about the depravity of many of the people who occupy this planet. With the planet revisiting the part of my chart that makes me want to build relationships, I need to find a way to move beyond the antipathy I feel toward these individuals.

Frankly, I just need to learn to ignore them because that is the best solution for my own mental health. There is no reasoning with the unreasonable. I can’t waste my time attempting to build bridges with trolls who would push me off that bridge if they got that chance.

So, if that is the lesson Uranus was trying to teach me as it transited my seventh house, I got the message loud and clear: relationships can suddenly come to an end for reasons that are beyond my control. With the planet returning to that part of my chart for a few months, I feel as if I’m going to be taking my final exam on the subject. I will only pass the test if I continue to rise above the steaming piles of bullshit that these people try to drag me into with their support for demagoguery and “alternative facts.”

I’m over it. They can live in their world and I’ll live in mine.
