Uranus Squaring Pluto, #7
For All Signs: The ongoing tense relationship between Uranus, planet of the people and Pluto, planet of mega-powers, represents the dramatic changes and
shifts in our relationship to governments, economics, politics, and the
countries of the world. It remains a
backdrop to everything else that is happening as we go about our personal
lives. We are in the midst of a decade
of this tension, which began in 2010. This
energy is prominent for ten years or more and we are now in its center. There have been 6 exact squares, the most
recent was on Dec. 15. There will be one more exact square on March
15, 2015. We have seen incredible
changes on the globe and in the USA. Governments
have been overthrown, many countries are not speaking, and the overall world
economy is precarious at best. Those who
have even a little bit of power are throwing it around, bullying those who seem
to have less. As the faster, inner
planets make the circle around the zodiac, they trigger the major squares which
make news and further alter the conditions of the world. They also trigger episodes of change in our
personal lives. I daresay at this point
no one has escaped unscathed.
Change is not necessarily “bad”.
Humans dislike disruption of routines, so we actually need provocation
to move forward and adapt to the next developments. This is the stuff of which inspiration and
creativity is made. Unfortunately,
Uranus and Pluto are energies that do not know how to create gradual
change. They create wars, job losses,
diseases, financial instability or other dramas that appear unbidden out of
nowhere. Old grievances resurface
between countries and individuals. We
often react as though no time has gone by, becoming as emotional as the first
round. Will anything change this
The message in the sky calls us to break from living out the tired
old dramas. If we are to save our world we need to change paradigms and
let go of black/white thinking. Taking revenge for past wrongs is not a
cool thing to do. Neither is acting out the same old creaking stories of
the battle between the sexes, or letting warriors rule the planet just because
they are louder than peacemakers. Any thinking person would have to agree
that continuing our warring history in the same way will not accomplish
anything better than what we've got: a circus of a world that is trapped
in constant replay. At present it
appears that Congress is turning retrograde as fast as possible to the
1950’s. Suddenly people are revolted by
abortions, but they don’t object to sending young men to their death in wars
created by Hawks. Who understands this
Each of us can choose a
better option for whatever is happening personally. We do not have to be
in replay mode forever. If you can think of nothing new or better to do
about an issue, hold the question in mind before you go to sleep and ask for
the answer--expect it to be there. A fresh and improved version of
dealing will be available for evaluation in the morning. If we simply refuse to play the same old tapes, the
mind will come up with a better solution. Our minds are naturally lazy
and will keep reproducing the same scenarios unless we demand that it reinvent
Aries: Uranus is in the middle of your sign during
2015. This is a strong symbol of the
restlessness and yearning to break free that has plagued you over the recent
years. If you are using this energy
constructively, you will be working toward a greater cause or the good of those
who cannot help themselves. The position
of Mars as it transits the zodiac represents you and your drive, for good or
ill. Between Jan. 12 and Feb. 17 it is best
if you take no aggressive measures, lest they become boomerangs. A new relationship or partnership begins in
Feb. It might instead be a recommitment to an ongoing relationship. The middle of March is likely to be a time
that you will do battle and take no prisoners.
This energy continues through the first week of April. In mid-April you will be challenged by
property, family and work situations. Stress
and the need for change begins again in mid-July and one more time in Dec. Drive with caution and handle tools carefully
during these periods. During Aug. there
will be an improvement in the conditions related to work. It is possible that travel or education for
the sake of career is in the offing, if not 2015, then in 2016. In July through early fall someone from the
past may resurface in your life for a time.
You may feel drawn by nostalgia to investigate, but this is unlikely to
Taurus: This year presents you with an awareness of financial
affairs. It is important to focus on
your investments and do long term planning.
You may be called upon to handle someone else’s money, which leads you
to realize a need to prepare a will and arrange for your later years. It is time to eliminate debt. In Feb. you will need to focus on your inner
work and come to peace with yourself about an old resentment. If you do not do this, then in March you may
find yourself suddenly ready for war.
The end of March brings expansion via travel or education. Legal matters go in your favor. In July through Sept. you may take a romantic
step into the past to revisit unresolved matters. At that time your creativity seems to go
underground, but it will reappear in latter Sept. In mid to latter Sept. you begin a fresh
relationship. It may be romantic, but it
also might be a fresh start on relationship from long ago. Oct. brings surprises, most of which you will
consider favorable. That may be a time
to travel as well. Take special care of
your health in Nov. The month of Dec. is
favorable for relationships.
is the year in which it is time to think seriously about your partner(s) and
other very close relationships in your life.
Those of you in a bad relationship will be verging upon letting that one
go. If you want to remain in your
partnership it requires finding a new, fresher reason to remain together. Close friends fit into this category as
well. So those who are not good for you
need to move on. Those who genuinely
care about you will become your teachers for the next couple of years. The year begins with your ruling planet
Mercury, in retrograde motion. You
likely will be rethinking your next moves.
That which seemed favorable in December on pause while you think about
the possible fallout if you take this step.
You will be less likely to make decisions during this period, yet you
are pondering serious matters. In
mid-March you will learn the truth about a previously held illusion. In early April you may be provoked to battle
the Powers That Be, but the probability is that they won’t budge. During May-June, Mercury is in your sign with
another retrograde cycle. The
probability is high that you will change directions from that which was on your
mind in April. It will be a good time to
think about yourself and tend to your health.
July brings another time of struggling with the Powers in your life. Things around you will lighten up in
August. Any time before Aug 27 would be
good for a vacation. During Sep-Oct
Mercury will be retrograding in the territory related to lovers and children
(no matter how old they are). You and/or
your children will be rethinking your paths again. Former lovers may return or you may back out
of a current lover relationship. Nov.
and the Thanksgiving holiday will be quiet, subdued. In Dec. you will want to take control of
those around you. That may not be appreciated,
but you can try.
Cancer: Much of your focus this year is to continue sorting and organizing
your property. Follow the instinct to give
away or otherwise dispose of whatever you do not need. You want to eliminate whatever feels like clutter, whether it is “stuff” or anything
outdated, such as clothing. The eclipse
seasons tend to create drama. Watch the
months of March and April which may bring drama centered around your
partner(s), especially near April 4.
Then again in Sept, particularly near the 28th. In July there is likely to be an upset
pertaining to your life direction. You
and another will have to resolve a dilemma or two. From June 24 through Aug 8 you will be
involved in heavy exercise or in a project that requires the use of your large
muscles. Mid-May and early July are
favorable times for travel. Jan through
Aug. is overall favorable in the financial department of life. On or near July 25 it is important to give
especially good attention to your body English and drive like a little old
lady. Your reflexes are in a low at that
time. In early October you may be
choosing to move or make significant changes in your home and property. You may have a challenge with authorities in
Dec. They have the upper hand.
first half of 2015 you will probably be thinking seriously about love life,
children, and creativity. You don’t want
to be frivolous in love or art. You want
something meaningful to develop. Many
will take their creativity seriously for the first time. In the first six months, Jupiter will be
continuing to travel in your sign.
People often experience positive changes with Jupiter in this
position. In July and Sept. Venus, the
goddess of love goes retrograde in your sign.
This transit often represents returning to a former relationship to
check it out one more time. People from
the past may show up from nowhere and want to reconnect. You
may be the one who initiates the search for those in your former history. Watch your behavior in the relationship
because you will be tempted to live out old patterns that are not good for
you. There are certain times during the
year in which you will be caught up in the Uranus/Pluto square. Sometimes you are a victim of the Powers and
other times you over-react as a Power.
Early Jan. brings a time in which you could be a control freak (unless
you watch it). Early April is a time in
which you will be on the rebellious side and in support of what seems “just” to
you. During July and Oct. you may
perceive yourself as a victim of the Powers that Be. It is hard to keep one’s balance during these
the next 2 to 3 years, you will be pressed to repair and/or replace
property. Whatever you own that is aging
will begin to show its cracks. You may
also need to focus on elderly family members.
You are likely to want to downsize and eliminate whatever is excess
around your home. As the year begins,
your ruling planet, Mercury, will go through a two month retrograde cycle. You will need to realign your health
habits. Aside from health, there may be
things related to your work that need to be done again. It could seem as though it is hard to get off
the ground in the year’s beginning, but that will not last forever. The next Mercury retrograde criss-crosses
your career house, setting up changes in that area. Ultimately you will probably wind up exactly
where you started. The third Mercury
retrograde occurs in Sep-Oct in the territory of finances and resources. At that time you may discover previously made
errors in business or in your checkbook that must be corrected. Avoid making major purchases at that time
because you may not have enough information to make good choices. On Sep. 27 through Nov. 12 Mars will also be
in your sign, adding spark and energy to everything. Jupiter moves into your sign in August for the
next 12 months. Jupiter usually brings a
favorable attitude change about almost anything. It often comes with increased travel and more
experiences of a ceremonial nature. It
definitely favors education and teaching.
It may bring a happy surprise in Oct.
This will be a year for the new and different.
this year you will be pressed to learn efficiency in your communications. Whether written or oral, the need to be
concise and organized with your language is emphasized. It is also time to become aware of opinionated
attitudes. Learn to recognize them and
put on the brakes. What you think is
right may not be so. Circumstances
related to roommates or siblings may require attention. In Feb-March, whatever difficulties are in
your relationships will show themselves.
Dialogue is necessary. Whatever
is not resolved will resurface again in May and again in Nov. Others may challenge you for reasons of their
own. It is easy for others to project
their attitudes onto the peaceful Libran and then want to fight you about it. It
may seem as though you are going backward, repeating old patterns, or
revisiting old relationships between early July through early Oct. This is particularly noticeable in Sept. People from the past will resurface during
this period. Or possibly people who
remind you of old history will provoke you.
Observe the similarity and don’t react as before. Let it just go by. Mercury will be retrograde in your sign
during Sep. and Oct. This causes you to
rethink your plans and perhaps set them aside for a time. You may not have all the information you
need, so waiting is favorable. The
dramas of those around you take over your time during Nov. Dec. is far more peaceful and playful.
Scorpio: The long darkness that has cast a background pallor over your life
is coming to an end this year. You will
feel generally better through June. It
is possible the summer will remind you of that pallor, but even that will lift
in September. It will be important to
focus attention on income now and for the next two years. Eliminate wasteful spending. In mid-Feb., you may start a new job that
requires the use of your muscles. At the
same time there are signs of a new relationship or partnership beginning in
Feb. It might instead be a recommitment
to an ongoing relationship. Use special caution physically in March because you
are subject to accident. In May and
mid-July, you may attract one who wants to harm you in some way. Step aside from the darker types in the
world. Scorpio can attract them. Leave those people alone. Take care with your mouth during the
summer. You may pop off one too many
times or in the wrong places. In August
you may develop a new circle of friends, who will be a new joy in your life for
many months and maybe longer. During the
fall you will be experimenting with the development of a new relationship. Watch your temper in the early part of
Dec. Make an effort to deal with
relationship situations in a new way.
Sagittarius: For the first 6 months of 2015 you will have a taste of Saturn as
it moves into your sign. In June it will
backtrack away and then move back to Sagittarius in Sept for the next two
years. Saturn represents the taskmaster,
the teacher, the one that promotes self-discipline and search for status in the
world. When it first moves into a sign
it sometimes suggests isolation or leaving one’s comfortable situation. People who have Saturn in their sign often
feel “alone”, even if that is not exactly true.
It is more often a sense of
being solitary, although it can manifest in a literal way at times. During this year as Saturn crosses the
territory into Sagittarius, Neptune is hanging at the bottom of your
chart. This often brings the illusion of
being alone, or not belonging anywhere at all.
One or more family members may drift off into the ethers, but you are
truly grounded with Saturn as your
partner, and unlikely to meander into outer space. While Mercury is retrograde in your
partner’s house during Sep-Oct., your partner may be dilly-dallying and unable
to make a decision. But you, with Saturn
in your sign, will be more stable than you have known for a very long
time. Between Jan. and July you likely
will be setting up the foundation for a career in the future. Perhaps you are going to school or growing
your knowledge in other ways. From Aug.
forward for the next year, there is emphasis on your career or life
direction. You will want to expand this
territory and likely will be given opportunities to try.
Capricorn: Your ruling planet is Saturn which is changing signs this
year. You may have noticed that your
life tends to make a big shift roughly every 2.5 – 3 years and here we
are. Saturn moved into Sagittarius in
mid-December and will remain there until June.
You are likely fantasizing a sabbatical and you actually need one. You must ease up on your self- expectations
or your health may suffer. Make it a
point to get extra rest, extra vitamins, and whatever else you know is good for
your body. The ongoing Uranus/Pluto
squares are taking a toll because Pluto is presently residing in Capricorn. You have challenges from every front and this
has gone on since 2010. You have done your best to control the situations
around you. There is one more exact square in mid-March. After that the punches are not as hard, but
they will keep coming. Prepare your body
as best you can. The first half of the
year business is slow, particularly so if it depends upon internet
resources. There will be challenges in
March, mid-July, Nov, and again in December.
From August forward Jupiter favors you with positive aspects related to travel,
internet, education, and/or publication.
Aquarius: You will get a preview of the next 3 years during the first 6
months of 2015 and again in the last 4 months and beyond. Your role in life is shifting as Saturn, your
ruling planet, moves into Sagittarius.
In the big picture you may be asked to lead community projects. You may see yourself taking on the role of
teacher, and maybe even as a stepparent.
Jan. and Feb. are challenged by a Mercury retrograde in your sign. Drive and handle tools carefully. Don’t force yourself to a decision during
that period. Avoid contracts, but if you
sign, make sure you know exactly what
you are promising. Avoid any type of
manipulative actions within a relationship.
Jupiter, a bountiful planet, remains in your 7th house of
marriage and partnerships until Aug.
This began last summer and suggests a year of improvement in these
relationships. From August forward,
Jupiter will be in the territory that includes other people’s resources. That might be partner’s income, insurance or
debt payoffs, inheritance, gifts, public money (SS or disability). If you need a favor, ask between Aug ’15 and
July ’16. The year comes in like a lion
but goes out much more like a kitten.
Pisces: Many Pisceans are experiencing an otherworldly sense in their consciousness. Neptune, your ruling planet who was god of
the sea, is in your sign for many years.
This year those most affected were born between Feb 23rd and
March 1. The energy is surreal, causing
you to feel ungrounded at times. Intuitive
impressions may occasionally interrupt your concentration. Exercise is the antidote, though that is
probably the last thing you want to
do during this period. The end of March
into June is a favorable time for travel or a vacation. Another time is during the month of Oct. Saturn is crossing the top of your chart,
suggesting that you will be given more responsibility. Alternately, if you are tired of your life
direction, you may decide to chuck the routine in order to take on another project. Authority figures are likely to be
challenging in November. Stay under the
radar if possible. You will be focused
on work through August. After that you
may become interested in a potential partner.
More people will be in your life between Aug.’15 and July ’16. Beware of emotional vampires. That is always a problem for Pisces.
in Capricorn, 2008 -- 2024 ,
theme of our lives
headline cosmic news for 2008 is the entrance of Pluto into the sign of
Capricorn. We stand on the cusp of a 16 year global

us to talk about running out of resources, and totally another to come

This country has a Cancer birth chart. Pluto's transit through
Capricorn ('08--'24) will be opposed to our sun sign. We will be
starkly confronted with the results of our collective principles and
behaviors. We have become an empire run by consumerism and

public welfare. We assume that our laws, our government, and even
employers will protect us.
During these first few years Big Business (Capricorn associated) will
become the ruler of the globe and governments merely puppets. We
experienced glimpses of this system in the last decade. We are
