Uranus squares Pluto January-February 2016: The end, finiš, it's over
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.
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.
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.
is one of the ten major planetary cycles, which changes the world on many
different levels, and creates upheaval and political, economic and geographic
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hitler, ISIS has made use of current technologies, and like Hitler they are not
going to disappear overnight.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
