There is so much happening on planet Earth these days! One of the topics I feel passionate about is how we can assist the animal and nature kingdoms. Right now our astrology supports us in viewing our current reality in a new way and finding solutions to challenges or issues. Since August, the planet Uranus has been retrograde in Taurus. Uranus is the planet that activates awakening. It shakes things up for us, brings change, helps us find innovative ways to breakthrough limitations or blocks. Taurus is the sign that can represent the earth, money and other valuable resources. So when the planet Uranus is retrograde that would indicate that we are given a time to reflect on what changes might be possible with areas of our lives that are connected with money, resources and the earth.
There is a lot of information out there about how to work with money and other forms of abundance in new ways that can benefit our lives. There are even new forms of currency available, like bitcoin for instance. We are also becoming more aware of alternative ways to take care of our physical bodies. Health and balance are becoming very important in our relationships and ways of living. So how can we apply all of this to the earth?
We can start by deciding what changes need to be made to help improve the earth. How could we help our wild and domestic animals be healthier? It’s a good time to review how we’ve been handling things thus far, and ways to make it better. Most of us can think about this and know what the problems are. But the influence of Uranus would want us to come up with innovative and unconventional solutions. We need to look at the deeper issues, know the causes behind the problems and how can we remedy them. This might seem daunting when we think of major global concerns like toxins, pollution, and depleted natural resources.
When we consider many of the dilemmas with wild animals, we know that the cattle and meat industry is a big part of it. Wild horses are taken off their lands to make room for cattle. Cattle are slaughtered for their meat. Many other domestic farm animals live in tightly restricted environments and we consume their eggs and milk. This also affects the climate and the earth in different ways. Because we are all connected and one, it ultimately affects us as well.
These are some of the really big issues and yet there are still more. So you might ask, what can done? This is where the innovative or creative geniuses come in, even the most alternative. Those inventors will come forward during this time period we are in now and over the next 10-20 years. There is technology in many forms, including the crystalline kind that can be helpful. Many other physical healing tools will become available. As our collective consciousness and DNA continues to shift, many more of us will easily be able to greatly decrease or discontinue our consumption of meat and dairy.
The earth is also in transformation. So some of the natural disasters and the dying off of particular species are a result of her going through this natural change. But she also has hidden helpers and protectors who are serving in the unseen realms. These beings are assisting her and many of the wild animals in overcoming much of the seemingly unsurmountable challenges influenced by our traditional human ways. Many of us lightworkers are also helping by offering energy healing and other supportive services to ground the light where it’s needed and promote transformation, while inviting Mother Gaia to turn on more of her 5D (crystalline) aspects and structures.
Much of this is part of the awakening influence of the planet Uranus and we can work with it to also benefit our animals at home. Even with our dogs and cats, it is worth pondering how we can connect or communicate with them in a way that serves their greatest well-being. In these changing times, many people are now seeking alternative resources to improve their animal’s physical and emotional health, behavior and their relationship with them. This can include anything from learning animal communication skills to using herbs, flower essences or other forms of nontraditional healing like acupuncture and massage. We are connecting with our animals on much deeper levels, recognizing them as equal partners. We know their value and worth. In these times especially, many can now see how their animals have unique personalities, souls, talents, and destinies, just like all of us.
And on that note, as we are aware of the love and devotion we have for our own animals and loved ones at home, we can just as easily apply that to the wild, aspects of earth and the world at large. Love is the greatest power there is and it can move mountains, break barriers and create miracles. We can all use this power of love in any way we choose. So ask yourself, how do you prefer to use it? Reflect on your passions, your desire to serve. What lights you up or brings you joy in life? This is the time to use your gifts, talents and desires, to bring them out in the world to benefit all. As the astrology supports us now, the possibilities for making great strides, changes and breakthroughs will be clearly evident in our collective reality in the years to come.
With love & blessings during this holiday time! ~Heather
