Mercury conjunct Uranus

There is nothing making you stay put if you don’t want to be there. We often feel hemmed in by circumstances, overburdened by obligations, and defined by our responsibilities, but the truth is these all take their marching orders from you and not the other way around. Uranus is the planet of revolution and change. Its job is to throw over those structures in your life that have lost touch with you. This may result in an unexpected firing or hiring, a tectonic shift in priorities, or an earthshaking revelation. Whatever its manifestation, the point is to get you out of your rut. This may be a call to action or it may feel like you’re being dragged kicking and screaming into the next stage of your personal evolution. In any case it’s time to live a life that’s more in keeping with who you are. Signs most affected: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius
