Uranus and Pluto have been in tension with each other since the middle of June 2012 when we had our first exact square lineup. Uranus is in Aries at 12 degrees and Pluto is in Capricorn at 12 degrees forming a “square” aspect or 90 degree angle. The energy of a square is what astrologers refer to as a “hard” aspect. Like a 4 way stop sign or an intersection where a car comes perpendicular to your passage of travel, it has the ability to “T-bone” your car, or “broadside” you causing significant damage on impact. Pluto and Uranus are “Outer Planets”, meaning they are farther away from Earth in comparison to Venus and Mercury, having been squaring off twice a year since 2012. This the 6th exact square out of a total of 7 exact hits. 7 can indicate the senses of a change after an accomplished cycle and of a positive renewal. If we look at the number 7, there are also 7 chakras or energy centers in our bodies. IF we follow the chakras, the 6th chakra corresponds to the Third eye or area behind your eyebrows in the center of your head. It is known for seeing and feeling from intuition, a “knowing”.
Uranus brings energy that can be unexpected and shocking, like a lightning bolt, that is sudden and monumental. In the spirit of Aries, we find a fresh, bold and strong warrior archetype that lends itself to new beginnings which demonstrate courage. Pluto is the Lord of the Underworld, as his domain deals with issues of power, control, and the life that lurks beneath the soil. Capricorn can be responsible, disciplined, wise energy that can represent societal structure and stability. Pluto wants to dig into the accepted societal foundations and expose any potential corruption, hidden shadows, and get to the bottom of all things in efforts to transform, heal and grow. Whether we address our issues in the light or keep them hidden in the dark, they are still affecting the psyche. Pluto gives us the opportunity to move beyond what may no longer be serving ourselves and society. What wounds must we bring to light to allow healing in our lives? Uranus is making little earthquakes and disruptions in our lives to get us to look at what we really have passion about and what are we willing to fight for? In the face of an unexpected calamity, what is trying to be birthed? If we listen to our higher mind, Uranus, what fresh perspective can we harness to strengthen and invigorate ourselves and our communities?
On a personal level, where Uranus and Pluto are showing up in your chart guides the way for where you individually may seem to have had the rug pulled out beneath you, a revolution of change, psychological turmoil, or some desires starting to brew as life seems to be turned upside down. It can also turn right side out, the choice is yours. Use this time to purge what no longer serves you and connect with your inner knowing and power. Breathe deeply and accept the changes, healing and birthing the creation of a brave new world.
