URANUS

Position: 7th planet from the Sun

Keywords: Impulsive, Liberating, Intellectual

Rules: Aquarius

Energy: Masculine

Uranus was the father of Saturn in mythology and the ancient Greek name means Heaven or Night Sky which is indicative of an open mind and universal thinking. Uranus rules Aquarius, a sign known for free-spirited thinking, trend-setting and breaking away from the daily grind. Expect the unexpected and rebel from the deep control Saturn has over all. Uranus calls us to detach a bit and think outside the box a little more, open our minds and have a little adventure in our lives. 

Intellectualism can come with more social occasions and the need for expression. A small change for yourself, or a day wandering around alone to escape the dull routines should help expand your universe. How... refreshing? I grabbed some frozen blueberries filled with antioxidants and a natural sweet taste and then mixed it with fresh lemon juice and mint leaves for a light, lip-smacking agua fresca. Don't be too tough on yourself and lighten up with a simple juice like this. Switch up flavors using your fruit of choice, lemon or lime and a little sweetness-- try coconut nectar for a low-glycemic sweetener like I'm doing here so there's no unnecessary sugar highs!
