The Uranus/Pluto Square Dance

Square exact 21.4 2014. Chart set for noon, London
The ongoing dance between Uranus and Pluto continues. As you'll see from the chart, it's moving towards a square dance, with the Efficicency/Performance square that is formed becoming exact on 21st April. Other dance partners in this aspect pattern are Mars and Jupiter, with Moon hanging in there briefly alongside Pluto to bring a touch of intense emotion or maybe some heartfelt feeling to the performance.

Upheaval and revolution continue. Ukraine has had its second revolution in 10 years (2004 and now 2014). Russia's hard line is in evidence, but even though some kind of peaceful resolution has been agreed upon Putin and Russia are putting on the pressure and the threat of cutting off gas supplies to Europe once again rears its head. The sabres are rattling in the background and we may well not have heard the end of this issue yet. For a look at Putin's chart see the post about him on this blog - click on Politicians in the labels cloud on the left.

Meanwhile, unrest and inhumane civil war continues in Syria. The global economy is nowhere near healthy yet. And here in the UK the knives are out and being sharpened as Scotland prepares for its autumn Yes/No referendum on independence from the rest of the United Kingdom, challenging the 1707 Act of Union. 

Also significant is the recent announcement, based on hard scientific evidence, that global warming and climate change is here, is happening now, and can no longer be ignored or denied by those who have pooh-poohed the subject. We are warned that winters will bring more unpredictable extreme weather, and that summers will become hotter. The effect on the earth we live on, on a global scale, will be dramatic. We're almost out of time to reverse some of the ongoing changes in the climate. Politicians have to extert the will to DO something instead of burying their heads to the sand.

The ongoing Uranus/Pluto square is part of this wake up call; its intensity will ease off and then return to it's tight square several more times between now and 2019.

Currently, Mars in Libra opposite Uranus could inject a whole lot more energy into getting things moving in all the global issues I've mentioned. Jupiter in Cancer could bring some wisdom, experience and vision to offer direction as to where things are going. Unaspected Neptune in Pisces appears to be sitting on the sidelines and could be the voice of compassion and sensitivity, set aside from the main event, but nonetheless a very important player whose role it may be to counteract the bellicose nature of any conflict. Neptune's presence also acts as a potent reminder - it can remind us all to be compassionate towards others as well as to the environment we live in, where nature is starting to struggle and needs our support as it's part of the web of life upon which our survival depends.

Let's face it, Uranus will remain in assertive and action-oriented Aries for some time yet (2019 according to my ephemeris) and Pluto will be trundling through Capricorn until 2024, giving ample opportunities for the in-depth scouring of established institutions which has already started, as well as for the all-important global wake up that's needed to secure the future of humankind as we know it.

The Crossing Axis of Age Progressions (Basis Horoscope / Moon-Node Horoscope) is at the Pluto-Jupiter opposition. That means that Pluto is in Capricorn and also in the 10th Moon-Node House; and Jupiter is in Cancer and also in the 4th Moon-Node House.

The opposition of Age Progressions (Basis Horoscope / Moon-Node Horoscope) is at the Uranus-Mars opposition. That means that Uranus is in Aries and also in the 7th Moo-Node House; and Mars is in Libra and also in the 1st Moon-Node House.

While houses are related with physical actions with the environment, signs are related with thoughts and conscious reasoning. The task with this kind of crossing points is to transform the karmic patterns by thinking it over. Once they become consciuos, the transformation begin.
