Uranus is the trendsetter planet, and when it shifts signs, we see new developments in style, language, and innovation. Most of all, it shows what the public is excited about. I’m noticing a couple of ways that Uranus’s shift into Aries has already affected our language.
The first is the sudden emergence of the word VIBRANT as a criteria for attractiveness. No longer is it enough to simply be beautiful or handsome, you need to be vibrant as well.
I see vibrant as a word related to the Cardinal fire energy of Aries, as well as the excitement that a strong Uranus conveys. Vibrant suggests a vivacious, energetic, and fascinating individual who is, essentially, unstoppable and impossible to ignore.
The other verbal reflection of the shift into Aries is the way everyone is now GRABBING everything:
“I need to grab a Starbucks.”
“When I can grab a few minutes, I’ll give you a call.”
“I’m going to grab myself some of those shoes that are on sale.”
“Let’s grab that table over there.”
Try to place yourself in the mindset of someone who is in the process of grabbing something. See how it feels.
Can you see what I mean? It’s a desperate yet aggressive feeling that if you don’t grab it, you won’t get it. It’s a very Uranus in Aries sensation, willful, selfish, and not caring what others need or want.
And, yet, perfectly nice people have taken to using that word. Incessantly. No longer do they get something, receive something, or have something, they just have to grab it. It seems to mark some shift in how we deal with the world and with the needs of other people.
