But when the natural weather stirs itself to extremes and we are caught in a devastating wave of successive natural disasters, people die and it leaves us both reflective and compassionate.

I have almost no water in my chart, but I have a Uranus-Lilith-Venus conjunction (along with Juno and Vesta, for you asteroid junkies out there) in my fourth house. The fourth house is, among a few other things, all about your home, how you feel about it, and how you tend to behave there. Uranus in the fourth often brings unusual taste in furnishings, a love of home electronics or gadgetry, and can represent frequent moves in early life. For me?

'I believe my interest in astrology and occult subjects stems from my trines to Uranus. I think I will always have a life-long obsession with astrology. All I want to do is talk and feel excited about the cosmic design that is our astrology chart. I want to know what makes us tick? Why do events happen at certain times in my life?
