Transformation is in the Stars!
Transformation is something that is talked about a lot these days and there is a good astrological reason for that. Collectively, we are going through a shift in the astrologically measured ages of time, between the Age of Pisces and into the Age of Aquarius. What time this shift actually occurs is difficult to pinpoint, but most astrologers and historians researching this topic agree that it is not an exact date but a period of time in which this shift occurs and we are definitely in it right now.
The exact Uranus and Pluto squares I have talked about in previous articles have been happening every several months or so for the last 3-4 years. Pluto is in the sign of Capricorn right now which represents the power of the patriarchal society and the established status quo that exists within our societal institutions such as government, religions, corporations, financial conglomerates, etc. Uranus is squaring (a hard aspect) Pluto and is in the sign of Aries. This Uranus in Aries calls us to make big changes in our lives and as societies. Uranus is asking us to incorporate a more individualistic, self directed approach to life rather than relying on institutions to care for and direct our lives. Not surprisingly, Uranus rules computers and technology and this has played a huge part in giving more power and information to the individual so they can empower themselves and can help themselves without having to rely on an existing institutional structure to assist or direct them.
Pluto is the planet of huge life-changing transformation. No planet in your birth chart is left the same after Pluto transits over it. The old falls away, the person is transformed and a new better cycle can begin. So there is always some loss associated with a Pluto aspect in the stars. Many people have been experiencing tremendous challenges and losses these last 3-4 years with each exact square, but the planet Pluto interacting with the planet Uranus is preparing us and ushering us into the new Age of Aquarius. An age of technology based information and more educated individuals who are building a new and better world perhaps with more peace and love for one another. Less fear and passiveness (The Age of Pisces) and more Uranus inspired inventiveness, rebellion and change. We are seeing a lot of this already occurring as people try to challenge and change the authority of the Pluto in Capricorn institutions. These institutions will either fall away or exist with much less power in the coming Age of Aquarius, as people will be more self directed and actualized through the rapidly expanding information age which places knowledge and assistance from other individuals at our fingertips.
We have come to the end of these Pluto/Uranus exact squares this month. We can look back at all the changes we have seen and experienced in the last few years, collectively and as individuals. While it is not the end of challenging aspects of this time period, it is the end of some very heavy duty aspects, so it is a time to breathe a bit of a sigh of relief! This online magazine itself is responding to this collective and individual shifting we are experiencing. The last Uranus/Pluto square by exact degree started February 19th, 2015 and ended on March 1st. Some of you may have experienced another life transitioning experience or challenge during this period of time. Where it falls in your birth chart plays a part in what area of your life is experiencing this tremendous change. For some, it is asking for internal change and healing of emotions, for some it is a change in their career, and for others it is health changes related to lingering harmful emotions from their past. Others may find their group of friends changing completely as they learn to change long standing communication patterns and express their own needs in a more healthy way. Some may find their partnerships and sexuality changing and so on. It really depends where the Uranus/Pluto square is transiting your birth chart and what other planetary aspects are there too. If you have good aspects to this square, you will feel challenged, but also assisted in making the necessary changes. If there are even more hard aspects associated with the Uranus/Pluto square in your chart, it may be a very life changing and difficult time in your life, but know that it is preparing you for this new age to come in which you need to learn how to be more independent and to stand up for your own beliefs and your own needs for freedom and to assist others to do so as well.
You are being asked by the stars to be a courageous warrior (Aries) in making the world a better place and to make your life more meaningful to you and to the whole of society (Uranus). How that plays out in your life is up to your conscious awareness of what you are being called to do and how you respond with your choices and intent. This new age of information and networking and a more humanitarian society is exciting and holds great possibilities for us all. Aquarius is the dreamer, the inventor and represents independence and freedom. We will see much more of these themes appearing on the world stage as well as in our own lives in the coming years. We will begin to feel more individually empowered, yet working together as a whole to solve our problems in a very Aquarian, group oriented way. It is a very exciting time to be living in as we witness enormous changes taking place and watch fear and illusion (Pisces) fall away. Step into the light of the Aquarian age with courage, independence, and hope for our future! Embrace change and transformation!
