the Book of Job and Uranus

איוב
Having an Aquarius Moon,  today I was on the phone with an Aquarius sun soul sister who’s experiencing Job-like “symptoms” in her life right now. we were discussing life and kids and astrology while all of a sudden it hit me: the book of Job is a typical Uranus story.  so I mentioned it to her and told her (yet again) my old Uranus joke:
Imagine a man walking down the street while a brick falls on his head.
she laughed, of course. So did I. Even though it is not funny, we both appreciate an Uranian sense of humor. But then she said:
This is my life at the moment.
And than it hit me.
The Book of Job is an Uranian story.

What does the book of Job say

The book of Job tells the story of a man who gets more losses than a man can suffer. And each time he thinks he can not suffer anymore, another disaster comes upon him.  He losses everything he has.
For some reason, the common Christian adaptation of the story tends to emphasize the wounds or physical suffer poor Job had to suffer, while Judaism basic education in the state of Israel, at least, tends to question both the meaning of “blessing” קללה in the text and the presence of Satan in the story.

Accordiing to Job, just how Uranian can Uranus be?

in one word: A Lot. As much as universes can be universal. Infernal. Eternal. Uranian people tend to be forced somehow, usually by normative (or “normative”) circumstances, to see the bigger picture right from a very early age. Uranian person  is not necessarily a person born under the sign of Aquarius or has an Aquarius moon,  like my friend and me. Aquarian person is influenced directly from Uranus in a strong way shown on the Personal Natal Chart in any other way.

 

Cancer, belonging and possesing

As a mother of Cancer baby, I couldn’t ignore the first signs of Cancer personality. At the age of 10 months, he already had his own pet: a puppet he adopted just to visit and nurture everyday. He was happy and excited to see it and you could see the strong sense of duty he felt towards it: there wasn’t a day he forgot or ignored the puppet.

Being born under the sign of Cancer, this instinct of having and taking care of something is not surprising. Cancers define themselves by other creatures they take care of and by who and what they are faithfull to. That is why you would often hear the words “Family” and “Patriotism” in relation to Cancer Sun, Moon or AC people.

In combination with a lot of air in the personal chart, or when Uranus is strong,  people with dominant Cancer will be faithful to ideals and ideas and define themselves by activism, voulantaring for society or a cause. When a lot of fire is presense in the chart, or with dominant Mars, these people will devote themselves to doing and making, or in other words you may see a workoholic here. When earth is strong in natal chart, the main loyalty will be to structures, routines and heritages: here you will see people who care about their and their loved ones routine, nurture the physical self (body) and the imidiate surounding. and with lots of water these people usually become family oriented, full of self motivation and inner drive. These will be focused in whatever other parts of the chart, such as Mars’, Mars ruler’s, planets in 10th house and 10th ruler’s location and aspects indicate.

Aquarius own way

Aquarius is considered to be the most eccentric, weird, quirky and original of all signs. For many Aquarians it is hard to relate to Aquarius stereotypes: they portray a character which is hardly human. As an air sun myself i remembered having hard times finding myself in the Astrology descriptions of my sign; the same happened to one of my best friends, an Aquarius (also air sign). Astrologers usually talk about our brains and need to talk, communicate and transfer ideas, as if we were some kind of robots. Even lovely Libra, the third air sign of the zodiac, is being portrayed often in Astrology as a cold, calculated person.

But Aquarius definitely suffers from the worst public relations. In this post I would like to talk about Aquarius as a human, and try to explain their real traits that make them the unique people they are.

Aquarius people have data in their minds. They relate to the world through processing and consuming it in pieces of knowledge, information: data. it doesn’t mean Aquarius people don’t have feelings, it only means they treat and process their own feelings as another piece of information they have. that is why so often they might become overwhelmed by their own feeling, an episode that usually ends up with some alone-time.

This trait also causes them often to sound like they are sunk in details and can’t tell important and relevant data from pieces of information they have just collected along the way. It is a common thing talking to an Aquarius about a problem they have, having them sharing all of a sudden a fact that you totally don’t understand its relation to the subject. That is why they give the impression of being weird and eccentric -While in fact, they are having in front of them a lot of data, in a way that makes it hard to tell which one is relevant and which one is less relevant to the topic (that is why the get along so well with Geminis who tell them the facts apart from each other and take all the details into a nice structured logical story). This trait also makes them a very good advisers for others, where feelings are coming on the way of finding a solution for a problem and shouldn’t be taken into account.

For the same reason it is very hard for an Aquarius to make a decision. They can function bravely and admirably in a crisis but if they have time they will take it to consider the pros and cons of every situation, and to weigh all the tiny details that may affect their choice. That is also related to them being a Fixed Sign.

In a relationship, Aquarius people are as stubborn as notorious Taurus. They have their own way, which is usually the way that is best for everyone and for the greater good – and they won’t compromise it no matter what. Unlike Pisces, who also tend to see the general situation and outcome of their own private deeds and decisions, Aquarius are not flexible and won’t adjust themselves to changing circumstances. As a fix sign they tend to preserve things, relationships and even status quos and situations, and as an analytical, highly moral sign they know what is best for everyone.

Being so generalizing in their point of view, it is easier for them to move on where others might have stopped. That is how they find themselves in weird situations during their lives. They need to have friends who will accept and understand their unusual life experiences and ideas. friends ARE, ad astrologers usually emphasize, very important to Aquarius people.
