So as I have mentioned before, there are seven exact Uranus Pluto squares between June 2012 and 2015. It is time for the upheaval my friends! The focus is and has been about evolutionary change. The most telling of the seven squares is the one in the middle on November 1 2013, closest in time to the Heliocentric square. Massive social, political and economic upheaval, but before that the next square will hit on May 21, 2013 at 11 degrees.
Uranus represents change, invention, revolution, and higher awareness. It’s effect is shocking, unpredictable, and erratic. Pluto represents globalization, destruction, transformation, and renewal.THE DEATH AND REBIRTH OF LIFE AS WE KNOW IT!!! It’s effect is grinding, ruthless and extreme. Both of these planets are distinctly non-personal and emotionless, yet their effect is dramatic and deeply felt. The square is the most challenging of the planetary aspects, representing tests and challenges. It’s effect is stressful and frustrating.
The last series of squares was between 1932 and 1934, with five exact hits. Many of the fears astrologers have about this Uranus square Pluto series are based on what happened to the world in the early 1930′s: the Great Depression, the political and social upheaval, and the rise of dictators and extremism (ADOLF HITLER)! We can see changes happening on the external level, but much has been happening already on an internal level especially for people with angles, or planets in cardinal signs;
Capricorn, Aries, Libra, and Cancer. Cardinal signs take action and initiate change. Let's briefly describe how Uranus and Pluto will affect people with their sun and/or rising sign in these four signs.
Aries Sun and Ascendant: Uranus is passing through your first house of self and personality. Pluto is passing through your solar tenth house of career and public recognition. With Uranus transiting the first house, the very core of who are is undergoing transformation. You many find that your desires and direction suddenly change and it's time for you to move on from old friends or places which no longer serve you. Limitations or stuck patterns that you or others have been imposing on yourself are being broken down and replaced with a freer and more authentic expression of who you are. This may be apparent in your work situation as well. With Pluto in the tenth house you are no long content with being behind the scenes at work, and seek to make more of a mark for yourself, whether it is asking for a promotion, or quitting your current job and creating something of your own that will give you the freedom and recognition you desire. With Pluto in the mix, power struggles between bosses or co-workers may be a part of this transition as you assert and empower yourself. Perhaps these changes may come to you without you initiating it and how well you handle the changes will determine the stressfulness of this period in your life. With Uranus in Aries though, it may be easy to make impulsive decisions without having the proper grounding to follow through with the changes in a graceful way. So be sure to think before you act.
Cancer and Cancer Ascendant: Uranus is passing through your tenth house of work and Pluto is transiting through your solar seventh house of marriage and partnerships, including business partnerships. Your work situation may be quite unstable now and you may be changing jobs several times as you discover what truly makes you happy and brings you abundance. Situations which you may have put up with in the past may now feel restrictive. You are seeking more freedom and autonomy in your career, such that you may be experiencing conflict with bosses or authority figures. Now is the time to make changes in a direction that is more in alignment to who you are. With Pluto in the seventh house, your personal and business relationships are under pressure right now as deeper issues around power and security surface, forcing you to deal with emotions that you may have rather kept hidden. This is a necessary process that will transform how you show up in your relationships and discover what you want out of your partner in relationship. By the end you will be able to create more intimate and supportive relationships based on a solid foundation of trust and connection.
Libra and Libra Ascendant: Uranus is transiting your seventh house of marriage and partnership and Pluto is transiting your solar fourth house of home, family and emotional security. Your relationship might be feeling a little shaky now and change is inevitable. Perhaps you will be getting married, or breaking up from a long-term relationship. You or your partner may be feeling suffocated or limited in some way. The question of security in your relationship is up for discussion, and yet, if you have the ability to give freedom and space in your relationship, you may find that you are able to stay together while embracing each other's individuality and need for independence. Pluto transiting the fourth house often comes with the purchasing of home. Even if this doesn't happen, you will be stepping up into a greater responsibility in your home situation, and may find that you have to remodel or take on more responsibility at home. You may also be confronted with emotional or psychological patterns from childhood that are surfacing to be dealt with now. Your desire to change these dynamics within yourself is strong and you might be drawn to go to therapy.
Capricorn and Capricorn Ascendant: Uranus is transiting through your fourth house of family, home and emotional security and Pluto is transiting through you solar first house of self and personality. You may be changing residence many times during this transit or move to a new country completely in an effort to break free from a situation that feels old and restrictive. You may feel ungrounded and be forced to confront old patterns and emotions that have served to limit you. After this transit you are likely to feel more liberated and at ease within yourself and in time find a place that you can call home. Pluto transiting your first house brings a complete transformation in your personal identity. You may be able to get in touch with deeper unconscious urges and compulsions which in the past have controlled your actions. It's time to gain an understanding of yourself which will lead you towards empowerment and self-authority.
