History is in the making, everyone. After more than 100 years, Mars (planet of action), Uranus (planet of surprises), and the fateful North Node are meeting up in Taurus on August 1, 2022. Not only might this connection bring fateful events, but it’s also likely to cause quite the stir in your day-to-day routine. So, what does all this mean?
Astrologer Wayne Gonzalez weighs in on what this intense and unique conjunction means for us both personally and globally.
Meaning of the Conjunction
According to Gonzalez, Mars and Uranus make a conjunction every 18 months or so. However, to see North Node in this mix has not happened since 1855. “It is rare to have Mars-Uranus and the North Node,” he says.
What to Expect During the Mars-Uranus-North-Node Conjunction
Thanks to the North Node, many things that happen during this time will help you find a more karmic path forward—one that may have been planted years ago. “This is a time when (both personally and on a larger, more global scale) a lot of pressures that have been building for the last couple of years will be coming to the forefront,” Gonzalez explains. “And in some cases, it will just boil over.”
Don’t be surprised if you experience tension, fights, or even a breakup during this time. Mars rules our temper and Uranus rules all things both chaotic and unpredictable, you can see how this might get a little complicated. In general, Gonzalez advises to, simply, stay cool. “Your very best bet is to stay calm and not lose it with anyone or anything.”
Ultimately, right now isn’t a great time to unleash unexpected feelings or overshare your thoughts. It’s best to sit tight until the astrological craziness has died down.
The Conjunction in Your Natal Chart
If you have a Mars and Uranus conjunction in your birth chart, it’s likely that you’re someone who has quite the bombastic personality with an unexpected temper at times. You’re not someone who will ever shy away from conversation, an adventure, or sex. However, this also makes you quite impulsive. And if someone tries to control this aspect of your personality, it will not end well.
Ultimately, people with Mars and Uranus connected like this are very in-tune with action. In order to express their anger, love, or passion for things, they act. Not only do they act in exciting ways, but in creative ways as well. Their intention is to “wow” or surprise others with how unexpected they turn out to be.
Who Will Feel the Mars-Uranus-North Node Conjunction Most?
“If you have any planets in the fixed Signs between 14° and 23°, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius, you will feel this transit the most,” according to Gonzalez.
And by this, Gonzalez means that your life will be most affected in reflection to the House that this aspect lands under. For example, if this conjunction is happening in your 7th House of long-term relationships, you may have some serious revelations about what you want in relationships, and also, what you’re not currently getting.
