BIG day astrologically as we have our final square between Uranus and Pluto at 7:53 PM PST. This is the last of seven squares that began in June of 2012. Squares are formed by 90 degree connections and are interpreted as activating events that can be tense or difficult as well as an opportunity for change. As you can imagine when things come at you from the side where you have limited peripheral view and you may not see it coming, it can shake you up. That is what these two outer Planets, Uranus and Pluto, have been causing collectively and individually. There is nothing wrong with change and in fact, it cannot be avoided, but what is the purpose of these Planets dueling it out? Pluto deals with the psychological realm or the motivations and compulsions of our “psyches” with a particular emphasis on power structures. Pluto was discovered around the time Freud discovered the “unconscious”. It holds the emotional unconscious imprints that can guide our behaviors and feelings. In the sign of Capricorn, it seeks to “transform” our calcified and outdated systems of order and structure that no longer mirror our psychological realities. Collectively this can be like running a fine tooth comb through our monetary and legal systems addressing racial, religious, societal, and gender inequalities that have run their course. Uranus in Aries seeks to offer “breakthrough” experiences that lead the way for a “fresh start”, a new paradigm that is more current with our modern age. Aries is ruled by Mars, the god of War, and as we know we like to avoid war when possible, but the courage of the warrior allows us to be brave and be open to a new way of being, hopefully without violence, on our way to “liberation”. As if these two dynamos did not “spike the punch” enough, Mars is also hanging tight with Uranus in Aries lending to more active energy encouraging the will to step out and be your true self, the authentically real you, non-reliant on traditions, but open to the genius and teachers guiding you from within. It sure sounds like a tall order to me as we don’t want to just “throw the baby out with the bathwater”, especially when we are not even sure about the needs and desires of the new “baby”. One thing is for sure, the baby is here. How we will nurture and care for this new infant has yet to unfold in the coming years after these energies dissipate in the galaxy within and without. The birthing of a new era is afoot. We are no longer who we thought we were as things are being shifted and catapulted. How will you adapt to and approach the change? What routine do we want to follow to grow the baby into a healthy adult? Meditation and connection to some spiritual consciousness is suggested as logical factual reality may not be expansive enough to encapsulate all that is affecting your being. Neptune is in Pisces elevating the antennae connections to spirit. Being true to oneself, letting things fall away that no longer serve you and finding empowering ways to rebuild an authentic and stable foundation will help ease this transformational time of revolution. “Don’t you know it’s going to be all right? All right! All right!”
