Uranus Square Pluto - Take 6 of the Revolution

Brace yourself, folks. The sixth of seven Uranus in Aries Pluto in Capricorn squares will be exact on December 15, 2014 in 12 degrees of each sign. Anyone with cardinal sign planets (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) between 10-16 degrees will feel its impact, especially in the area of relationships. This is definitely going to be a game changer because Uranus represents revolution and sudden change while Pluto represents transformation. But Pluto in Capricorn is still clinging to its conservative roots while trying to maintain its power base. I loved the way astrologer Georgia Nicols described the Uranus Pluto squares as "Between 2012 and 2015, these two planets bang heads seven times."

Some of us may have already felt its influence on December 8th when the Cancer moon opposed Pluto in Capricorn and squared Uranus in Aries. I would wager that many of us might have had some old insecurities triggered as a prelude to the December 15th face-off.

Revolutions are indeed taking place around us. Racial violence and campus demonstrations against rape are rampant. I really feel like I am being transported back to the 1960's when I was growing up watching race riots and campus demonstrations on TV. And this is no accident- back in 1965-66, Uranus and Pluto were conjunct in Virgo. Whenever these two planets tangle, upheaval is sure to follow.

History was always one of my favorite subjects and I decided to look at the Uranus Pluto square through the lens of history. The last time we experienced a Uranus Pluto square was back in 1932-34. Ironically, Uranus was in Aries back then, but Pluto was in the sign of Cancer and had just been recently discovered as a planet. What was going on back then? Plenty-the Great Depression and the rise of dictators like Hitler and Mussolini. Personally, I have been saying for the past three years that Uranus in Aries was partially responsible for the economic instability that has been raging and history bears an astrological link to prove  that. Our current economic downturn actually began in 2008 when Pluto entered Capricorn. And the battle rages to preserve the wealth of the haves while the rest of us feel adrift in an economic tsunami. But in the 1930's when Pluto was in Cancer, there was more of a struggle to hold the family together in tough economic times. At least this is what I remember my astrology teacher telling me in class. She was a member of the Pluto in Cancer generation and told us it was it was quite a battle to keep the family (a Cancer ruled sign) together during the Depression. Her students back then in the 1980's were comprised of those born with Pluto in Cancer, Leo and Virgo and she definitely could discern the difference between the generations!

I was blown away by Michael Lutin's comparison of the current Uranus Pluto square to the Uranus Pluto conjunction back in 1965-66 on December 10th on his site  He said:

"We are now at the juncture of that conjunction Uranus square Pluto. The notion of a better society is being severely challenged."

Michael Lutin also captured the feeling and mood of the Uranus Pluto square with the following lines:

"It's scary to go where you don't know where you're going or how to get there."

"Severance from the expected path is an excruciating, mystifying and terrifying possibility until you accept the fact that you must move forward and now go where you have never gone before."

The bottom line is that we need to accept that there are long-term trends and changes occurring. The wisest course of action is to accept the instability and create a p!an to improve your life by releasing whatever isn't working. The Uranus Pluto square is a call to action to make core changes in your life. Upheaval can bring fast healing.

I speak from experience as the first four squares aspected the nodes of my moon (Capricorn and Cancer) in the third and ninth houses. Believe me, you can't ignore Pluto on your north node! The last three squares aspect my Libra ascendant, so I won't be able to resist their call for change, either!

If you have any doubts that the Uranus Pluto square will affect relationships, consider this. Venus in Capricorn will conjunct Pluto on December 20th to deepen and transform relationships and Mercury in Capricorn will join Pluto on Christmas to open up the lines of communication.
