As Uranus leaves Aries, I realized I’ve come a long way towards independence when it comes to technology. I’ve learned to manage the back-end of my site for the most part. I have help when I’m desperate but I do most things myself these days.
This is not because I am great at it or even that I like it. It’s just a skill I needed to acquire.
The most important thing I have learned is how communicate with technical people. I can’t just say, “Something is wrong!” I used to think that was right and okay to do. Well, it doesn’t work. A person trying to fix something needs details and screenshots. This was never more true than it is today.
How many browsers for Android do you think there are in 2018? Countless? And compatibility is everything. It doesn’t matter how good your widget is if it breaks my store or slows the site.
I’m thinking of this because these last days with Uranus in Aries, I am working with a gal on a plugin she’s developed or is working on. She’s helping me to get it functioning on my site while I’m helping her to see where her product is failing when compared to more expensive options. She’s a tech whiz but I’m the proprietor of a long standing online business. I’m the customer she has to sway and there is no doubt she is upping her game of my feedback.
I have good feeling about this and it’s not what you might guess. I feel CONFIDENT. I used to send requests into cyberspace on an wing and a prayer. I am now able to work with a technical person, feeling sure that we will be able to clear the blocks together.
I also like that once we’re done, I’ll run with her ideas and she’ll run with mine.
Bottom line, my codependent planets in Libra (which include Mercury) have been liberated by Uranus in Aries. Two independent people working together for independent goals.
What have you learned with Uranus in Aries?
