Astrology of Now: The Drums of Uranus-Pluto
The energies of the planets work together like an orchestra. Sometimes one section is louder, sometimes it’s stately, sometimes it’s raucous, sometimes there’s harmony, sometimes there’s not. There are themes and variations that weave in and out of time, repeating once a day, once a month, or once a year, or once every few centuries.
Sometimes one section is loud and sometimes it’s all so soft that you can hardly hear it, but the music is always there, weaving it’s way through time. Some themes are more powerful than others: the slow ones that build and stay a long time.
I think you can hear the drums of the Uranus-Pluto square, the brothers shock and awe at odds. It’s getting louder now.
Together their entries into Aries (2011) and Capricorn (2008) respectively have marked huge change in our world already. Now these two powerful, slow-moving outer planets are about to click into place in exact aspect on June 24. The music may get louder.
The square aspect (a right-angle), which they are making, is arguably the most challenging but also the most dynamic of them all. It’s an aspect that brings pain but also evolution and action.
We’ve already been feeling this Uranus-Pluto square for some time, of course – rebellion, revolution, repression. And that’s before it’s become exact.
But I just wanted to point out to you that the aspect will be exact a total of SEVEN, yes, that is seven times. And I want to give you the dates and degrees.
Pluto is in Capricorn. Uranus is in Aries. Sometimes one of the planets is retrograde. Note the initial meeting is Rx and at the final farewell they are both moving forward.
This is important for all of us, but most especially those with planets and points in between 6° and 15° Aries and Capricorn, Libra and Cancer. And also those born in the 1960s with Uranus-Pluto conjunct are bound to feel the calling of the drums.
I’ve looked at the previous three occasions when the square occurred – 1820s, 1870s, 1930s – and none of those times did the planets align seven times. I’ll be looking at this in more detail in future posts, but let’s face it, we’re going to be in this zone for a long time.
