We're approaching the last chapter of the Uranus/Pluto square.
It started on June 24th, 2012. The final square will hit on March 16th, 2015. There's so much going on this month (including the upcoming Virgo Full Moon) that it's difficult to isolate one aspect and identify it as a deciding factor. I think the square will be one song in March's acceleration mix.
By now, you're probably familiar with the Uranus/Pluto square agenda. Pluto in Capricorn digs up the foundations of the past, and Uranus in Aries illuminates what's revealed with the light of clarity and future possibilities. Acceleration away from the outmoded traditions of the past.
This final push will build on the previous squares:
- June 24th, 2012: 8 degrees
- September 19 2012: 6 degrees
- May 20 2013: 11 degrees
- November 1 2013: 9 degrees
- April 21 2014: 13 degrees
- December 15 2014: 12 degrees
- March 16 2015: 15 degrees
This square is surrounded by other aspects that are meant to intensify and focus that change. It's not just random destruction; there's a method to this madness. Venus and Mars in Aries started the ball rolling with their activation of Uranus/Pluto, and the Nodes. Desire (Venus) followed by action (Mars) caught your attention and compelled you to look at what needed completing. Nothing grabs attention like a Venus/Mars punch. The trine between Jupiter Rx in Leo and Uranus, plus Jupiter's inconjunct to Pluto, was an enabler. Jupiter expanded the good stuff, or inflamed the intolerable stuff, so there was no way you could stay comfy with the status quo.
Also on March 16th, we have an exact square between Mercury in Pisces and Saturn (at 4 degrees Sagittarius). Saturn will have just stationed retrograde on March 14th. Saturn's limits (especially since he's moving in reverse) will clamp down on Mercury in Pisces' free floating ideas, cautioning you to slow down andthink it through before you make that final leap. I'll write more about Saturn Rx and his square to Mercury, but for now, consider it a warning/grounding influence that ensures your buttons will be all done up before you cut loose from whatever Uranus/Pluto is urging you to leave behind. The Universe doesn't want you to make changes carelessly.
Do you have a plan? Saturn square Mercury is all about the plan.
Further proof of grounding is Venus' move into Taurus on March 17th. Right after the big blast of change, the planet of love, money and values enters a Fixed Earth sign that is concerned with the slow, steady accumulation of security and resources. There's solid ground to land on after you make the jump.
So it looks good. You won't be left dangling. Have faith that the Universe knows what's in your best interests, and move forward.
If you have natal/progressed planets, angles or Nodes from:
- 14 to 17 degrees of the Cardinal signs, you'll feel the Uranus/Pluto square
- 3 to 4 degrees of the Mutable signs, you'll feel the Saturn/Mercury square
I have an entire category in the archives dedicated to Uranus/Pluto square, if you want a refresher.
For those who like to look at the bigger picture, the April 4th Full Moon eclipse (at 14 degrees Libra) will ping the Uranus/Pluto square, and possibly reignite certain issues if they haven't been dealt with.
