Mars, Uranus under Malefic Star Algol in Taurus: Potential Disruptive Changes to Life

Shiva Mars Uranus Algol

Shiva, Lord of the Dance

The big news this month is the conjunction of Mars and Uranus in the sign of Taurus (sidereal or tropical positions) on Monday, July 15, 2024.  This happens about every 18 months and it is usually considered to be a few days of potential strife, alarm or upset; sometimes even like the spark that sets off the dust in a grain bin, BOOM!  This month will be a very “special” occurance of that phenomenon, more on that a little later.

Tension can arise, building up over long periods of time, suppressed by our normal social boundaries and rules of what is appropriate or not.  Eventually though, those rules and strictures are insufficient, no longer adequate to contain and channel these emotional, social or collective energies suppressed far too long.

Thus, breakdown and attendant chaos.  Soon though the energy flows into new better patterns and society takes a quantum leap into advancement and progress, if you will.  It’s a bit scary, but only because we become comfortable with the way things are. We want to “coast”.

Sorry, not so, according to the Universe.  We must change, to be like the fire, the lightning bolt, or to be like the dancing Shiva twirling over the figure representing ignorance.

That can be the typical Mars-Uranus energy, it does not always signify trouble or disruption, but it inevitably does raise tensions.

But it is this time around in July 2024 that something extraordinary is attached to it.  You can just imagine my eyebrows suddenly arching, as yours would, at the realization of this: it will occur at almost the exact degree of the fixed star Algol. 

What is Algol?

Algol, or beta Persei, is the star in the constellation Perseus that represents the severed head of Medusa of Greek myth, sliced off with a sword by Perseus with the aid of Athena’s shield to prevent the direct gaze of Medusa into his eyes, which otherwise would turn him to stone.  So, like the sentiment surrounding this myth, Algol is associated with various kinds of “losing one’s head”, whether that be literally or figuratively.

When we get upset we “lose it”, our head; and in the French Revolution a lot of people “lost it”, courtesy of the guillotine.

Al Goul, as this star was called in the original Arabic (we owe a lot to the Arab-Persian-Islamic world regarding the study of astrology and astronomy); this is where the word “ghoul” comes from. We know that when we get upset and emotionally disturbed we turn into a ghoul of sorts, don’t we.  Algol literally means “head of the ghoul”.

Donald Trump himself of the notable big head, who will literally hiss at people like a snake, has Algol exactly on the midheaven of this horoscope.  (See his chart just above the day by day section below>)

You can also see ACL denoting Alcyone of the Pleiades constellation very close and which will be conjunct by Mars and Uranus shortly threafter

On Saturday, July 20 transiting Uranus will have moved exactly over Algol and the following day Mars will have moved on a bit farther, now directly over the Pleiades cluster, specifically the star Alcyone.  In my findings, the Pleiades stars have a similar punch to that of Algol.  So, we can see a period of about a week from July 15 to 20 of some very intense activation of situations for everyone.

Images like Medusa with her severed head with snakes for hair are simply shocking and horrific.  Horror is not necessariy blood and gore, is cruelty and hate, violence and terror; from the spectrum of our private thoughts to our words and intention to their final manifestions in experience.  Most people will be okay, a far smaller few will know it directhand.  But in battlezones and arenas of contention we may be seeing some quite ugly human manifestations.

On the other side of shock and horror actually lies a liittle bit of peace because once once you actually experience the worse, it becomes a little less frightening.  You know now that you survived and are not too much the worse for the wear. Fear does not control us as much as it did before. It is liberating.  That is in little does occationally.  Not in the wholesale oblideration and genocide that goes on in parts of the world today. nor in the threat of nuclear war or economic collapse.  Maybe little doses serve to wake the world up and incentivise us to collectively take action.

The Story of The Taurus Bull

This Taurus bull of the constellation comes from the Greek myth of the Seventh Labor of Hercules.  King Minos of Create prayed to the god Poseidon to send him a great bull which he would then sacrifice in Poseidon’s honor.  After Poseidon sent him a magnficient bull, the Cretan Bull, Minos having found the bull to be too beautiful to let go of, he switched it out with another lesser bull for the sacrifice.

This enraged Poseidon who then caused the bull to run wild over Minos’ lands tearing kingdom up, and he created in the king’s wife, Pasiphae, an insane lust for the bull that she mothered a child with it, the half-man half-bull the Minotaur.

It was Heracles’ job to round up and bring the bull to other pastures, which he did.

This is the bull which is about to be figureatively set off by Mars and Uranus.  I hope you’re beginning to see the layers of abnormality and weirdness which could be ignited here around mid-month.

You can see Donald Trump has Algol within one degree of his midheaven (MC)

Donald Trump literally dodged a bullet on the campaign trail on Saturday, July 2024 near Butler, Pennsylvania.  The astrology of the time accurately describes the incident, and also gives us an opportunity to see the road ahead for Mr. Trump. A consulting astrologer would have advised Trump to be wary on this day, but it could potentially springboard him to even greater success.

You will have to get up before sunrise and be able to look low in the east to see this.  All of the planets of the solar system (including the Moon) will be rising before the Sun and will be relatively close together.  In astrological terms they will be all in the same quadrant of a horoscope.
