Fire and Water: The Astrology of November 6-11 and the CA Fires

Fire and Water: The Astrology of November 6-11 and the CA Fires

As I write this, the Woolsey Fire is still blazing in Los Angeles County, sending waves of destruction over more than 90,000 acres. My heart has been broken for days thinking of the losses. This fire hits home for me because I’ve recently bought a house in a neighboring community, and for the past several months, we’ve been driving up and down streets in the same neighborhoods involved in the fire. It has been intense to watch the fire spread so quickly and erratically knowing that our new home is just a few miles away.

Several people have asked me about the astrology of these wildfires. I’ve written up a brief overview of some of the most significant transits of that day. These are just preliminary thoughts, but I’ll be adding more in the future as I take time to do more research.

What I found so far can shed some light and also offer a note of caution as we head into 2019.

Uranus in Taurus 2018 - 2025

Every 7 or 8 years, Uranus moves into a new sign, and it’s a significant astrological event. Today, Uranus moves from Aries to Taurus. This transition will stir societal shifts as well as changes in your life over the next several years.

When an outer planet changes signs, it’s a big deal because it happens infrequently. Inner planets Mercury, Venus, and Mars change signs frequently, with Mercury and Venus about once a month. The outer planets revolve around the sun slower. Uranus takes 84 years to make one full rotation, and it transits through each sign about every 7 years. 

Uranus is the planet of change, and its placement helps us identify where we will see changes taking place in our lives.
