Uranus squares Pluto January-February 2016: The end, finiš, it's over



Uranus squares Pluto the final time January-February 2016, and the two major planets come within a 1 degree orb of being exact in Aries/Capricorn. I have been writing about this powerful square since 2010, when Uranus entered Aries and this major period of change began.


 

The result has been like the clash of the titans between these two outer planets and we have seen major upheaval in the world, and this has been the most significant transit of the generation we have lived through, and we will continue to see more upheaval in the world resulting in continued evolutionary change in the circumstances of the world and in our personal lives as well.


 

As this transit comes together again the first two months of 2016, expect to see just has much change and upheaval as past years, and while this is the final hit of these planets, the results will play out for months and even years to come. So while this is the final pass, it's not over until the planets separate by at least 8-10 degrees, but we will move into a new era, and be able to discern exactly how radical the changes have been. The cycle will continue for some time, although as the planets separate for the final time the energy will lessen month by month. Uranus and Pluto have an orb of at least 8 degrees which puts us into June 2016, and even then results of this period will continue to play out in the world.


 

This is one of the ten major planetary cycles, which changes the world on many different levels, and creates upheaval and political, economic and geographic turmoil.


 

The last time Uranus and Pluto came into hard aspect was the mid-1960's, when they came together in a conjunction in Virgo. The 'natural health,' generation was born, along with the escalation of the Vietnam War, the Civil rights movement, the equal rights movement, divorce came into vogue, plans to build the World Trade center were announced, Medicare was passed, college campuses were a melting pot for youthful activists, the Civil rights act passed and LBJ declared war on poverty, and the world changed and became much different from the past. So shall it be again.


 

In the mid-1930's Uranus in Cancer squared Pluto in Aries. It was the height of the Great Depression, unemployment and the rise of dictators and extremism that would led to WW11. Hitler rose to power in 1933 and the first concentration camp was established, FDR launched the "New Deal,' Kind Edward Vlll renounced the throne for the woman he loved, and race relations in the US were tense. Prohibition ended in the US, and an ecological disaster called the 'dust bowl,' emerged, and the Spanish Civil war began.


 

 

These are only some of the events that occurred during these previous periods, and you can see that it shakes up the world, fuels discontent and extremism, and the personal lives of many individuals are changed as well, especially if this powerful transit aspects your personal chart.


 

 

Pluto rules power, the media, and ruthlessness, and Uranus inventions, aircraft, technology and the internet. In the 1930's Hitler became the first political leader to take to the air, spreading his propaganda across Germany and utilizing the media to his advantage.


 

 

In our current time we have seen the rise of ISIS, and their manipulation of social media as a recruiting tool, and to spread graphic images of terror. The large scale changes in our world began with Arab Spring, a direct result of Uranus entering Aries and its square to Pluto.


 

 

Hitler cemented his power during the last square of these powerful planets and it took many years to defeat him. During this square ISIS cemented their power with the formation of a caliphate that occurred June 29, 2014.


 

Like Hitler, ISIS has made use of current technologies, and like Hitler they are not going to disappear overnight.


 

The Uranus-Pluto square has been and will continue to usher in extremism of all kinds beyond ISIS. There has been a rise of the radical right over the past number of years in both Europe and the US. The world is polarized.


 

During the 1930's there was a mass exodus of refugees fleeing Hitler's Germany, and once again 2015 saw a similar situation with the Syrian refugees. It is estimated there are over 50 million refugees and the numbers are rising.


 

Some people believe the 2016 Presidential race is extreme in terms of both politics, and those individuals running on the Republican ticket. We are living in a much divided America and this will only become more polarized (like the 1930's and 1960's) as we move through the first quarter of the new year.


 

January 2016 is a pivotal month, (much like March 2015) and in many respects will be a difficult month in the world and in our lives, as the Uranus-Pluto square is set off by the Sun, (January 4-8), the new moon (January 10) and then retrograde Mercury (January 21-31), and later Venus ( February 6-7). Expect these dates, and the days surrounding them to be significant in the world and your life if it aspects your personal chart.


 

We are in fact dealing with two major squares to further complicate matters: the Uranus-Pluto square, and the Saturn-Neptune square, which both clouds the issues and gives us an opportunity to see that certain efforts have not worked out and we have to find a new path. Saturn and Neptune were in an exact square in November when we saw another terrorist attack in Paris, and the world became much more aware that ISIS was a terrorist group that will have to be contended with.


 

Many events will occur again as Uranus and Pluto come together for the final square shaking up our world and personal lives again.


 

This transit will aspect your chart if you are a 14-18 degree Libra, Aries, Cancer or Capricorn or have planets in your natal chart at these degrees in a Cardinal sign. Many changes can occur at this time that can include endings of all types, or beginnings, new ventures or relationships, and at times there can be an unexpected element as Uranus is involved. It all depends on where this transit aspects your own chart, as to what will occur.


 

A regeneration of many things and situations has been happening on many levels in the world and personally, and the nature of Pluto is to break down and rebuild in a stronger way. On a personal level we have an opportunity to break free of situations that have become oppressive or step into new situations we have desired for a long while.


 

This transit will affect the US chart and events can/will be large. As Pluto squares Saturn this will affect our stability, and the opposition to the US Sun in the 7th house we will be dealing with those considered enemies. As Mercury is involved at the end of the month this can involve young people, transportation, communication of all types, weather related circumstances, and finance.


 

Over the years of the Uranus-Pluto square we have seen political upheaval around the globe, the formation of ISIS and terrorist attacks, issues involving Russia and China, mass transit wrecks, political and geographical upheaval, Arab Spring, propaganda, extended US surveillance of citizens, mass shootings, and the entrenchment and control of major companies in terms of government and power, dictators and the downfall of dictators, and upheaval across the globe.
