Adventures with Uranus/Pluto: The vortex of the powerful cycle of change

Art by Ruysen Flores Venancino

In astrological language, the powerful planetary cycle involving a challenging square between Uranus and Pluto is culminating this week.  The fact that Mars is involved, needling Uranus into explosions where restriction has become untenable, and pressuring Pluto to effect its destructive influence and clear the decks completely, makes this week even more intense.

This is the first Uranus/Pluto event since the cycle began in 2011 when the planets came within a degree of the exact alignment, in which neither of the two planets are retrograde.  Retrograde planets tend to operate on a more internal level – they encourage us to look back into the past and re-visit experiences that need to be changed or altered for a more effective future.

The retrograde pattern has been a dance throughout the entire cycle, with Pluto retrograde alternating with Uranus retrograde.  In 2011 when Uranus and Pluto came within a degree of their exact square, they were both retrograde and there was an implosion of sorts as Uranus inspired a breaking out of the desire for liberation, and Pluto turned our attention inwards to the power of transformation within us.  From that point on, the alternating cycle meant that the focus of change shifted continually from our inner worlds to the outer manifestation of reality.  (During the first exact alignment in June 2012, Pluto was retrograde. In the second alignment in September 2012, Uranus was retrograde. In May 2013, Pluto was retrograde. In November 2013 Uranus was retrograde. in April 2014 Pluto was retrograde.)

There is a symbolic finality to the fact that the final alignment between these two giants includes both planets in direct motion – neither retrograde looking back at the […]

Planetary Illuminations: Astrological forecast for February 2015 is posted

You can read the article in its entirety right here.  If you are not yet on my mailing list please sign up in the sidebar to receive this monthly report with a translation into language that is easy to understand!

Here is the introduction with the major events coming up this month.  To learn more about how your own chart is affected by these planetary cycles, consider a personal consultation.

The big story in February is the continued tightening of the square between Uranus and Pluto which will culminate for the last of seven exact phases in March.  Throughout February these two planets continue to tighten their dance, squeezing out any last bit of resistance to the cataclysm of change that our inner and outer worlds have experienced over the past five years since this cycle began.

The elemental balance right now is highly mutable, with four planets in Pisces and a shortage of the Earth element which helps us to ground and build a stable foundation from which we can evolve and grow.  This lack of Earth will continue over the next several months, making it even more important to ground ourselves and find stability where we can.

Uranus and Pluto have been interacting in a challenging formation to the lunar nodes – the signposts of evolutionary growth from past to future.  The lunar nodes are concerned with fate and destiny, and there is a sense now that every action has tremendous importance in carrying us towards that destiny.  Choices that we make create our fate, and cycles of change require a degree of trust in the wisdom of the Universe to effect change in exactly the best way to help […]

Saturn in Sagittarius: 2014-2017

Saturn in Sagittarius

Saturn entered Sagittarius on December 23rd and will remain in that sign until June 14, 2015 when it will retrograde back into Scorpio until September 17, 2015 when it will move back into Sagittarius until it leaves on December 19, 2017.

The planet Saturn serves as the teacher and the mentor and he is often feared because his lessons can be quite strict.  He is known for creating delays and disappointments, for applying the brakes when all we want to do is move forward, and for manifesting as back problems, car problems and financial troubles if we fail to heed his warnings.

In medieval astrology Saturn was known as the “greater malefic” (with Mars as the “lesser malefic”) – his presence in the birth chart was thought to bring ruin and misery.  Saturn is considered malefic in Vedic astrology as well, representing the principle of karma that is inescapable and unchangeable.

Planetary Illuminations – December 2014 astrological forecast is posted

December astrological forecast 2014Dear friends, sorry for the light posting!  Here is a link to the December forecast.  If you are on my mailing list you will soon receive your report of the planetary influences of the month written in plain language that is easy to understand.  If you aren’t yet on this list please sign up in the sidebar!

Meanwhile here is an introduction for the beginning of December:

MAJOR EVENTS

The biggest single planetary event in December is the resurgence of the challenging square aspect between Uranus and Pluto.  This is the sixth of seven exact phases of this cycle that has brought about cataclysmic change across the globe as well as in our personal lives (read more in the sidebar if this is new to you).   Uranus and Pluto destabilize the structures of our life so that they can be replaced with a new and improved foundation that better fits the modern era.  For example, around the world repressive governmental regimes have been broken up and ideally these would be replaced by more democratic institutions.  However, after the breakdown (Pluto) and revolution (Uranus) phases there is a period of uncertainty and chaos as the dust settles and the new reality begins to emerge.  We are seeing that in the world political situation, and perhaps you are seeing this in your own life.

A Pope for the Uranus/Pluto square

Pope Francis astrologyAs you know if you’ve been reading the astrological news in the past few years, we are now in the waning phase of a square aspect (90 degrees) between Uranus and Pluto.  You can read more about this phase in the sidebar of this blog if this concept is new to you, and you may want to catch up on this post about the Uranus/Pluto square from last year detailing the news events that correlate with this cycle.

One such event was the resignation of Pope Benedict in 2013.  Not only was he the first pope to resign since 1415, he was replaced by Pope Francis who himself is a walking representative of the square between Uranus in Aries (individual liberty and personal revolution) and Pluto in Capricorn (the breakdown of the structures upon which our society is built).  Benedict was a traditionalist and saw homosexuality as an “intrinsic moral evil.”  He was a strict doctrinarian and resisted any kind of liberal reform, thereby representing the Capricorn adherence to the structures of traditional morals and rules.  He insulted Islam, promoted a holocaust-denying bishop, and equated the ordination of women with sexual abuse.
