The Uranus/Pluto square in the news

The square between Uranus in Aries to Pluto in Capricorn represents the departure from the status quo (Uranus) in favor of the individual (Aries) and the destruction (Pluto) of established power structures (Capricorn).  Here are a few examples:

How are things in your world?

Post-eclipse wrapup

“So other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?”

Some rather significant events happened yesterday, coinciding with the Sagittarius lunar eclipse:

  • Al Qaeda’s former #2, Ayman Al-Zawahiri, has been named the new head of Al Qaeda.  He was thought by many to be the mastermind behind the extremism of Al Qaeda, with Osama bin Laden serving more of a role as religious advisor.
  • Pakistan, our supposed ally in the so-called “war against terror” has arrested the CIA informants that identified bin Laden’s location in Pakistan, confirming the obvious theory that Pakistan isn’t really helping.
  • Vancouver sports fans rioted after their team lost the Stanley Cup playoffs.
  • A federal judge upheld a ruling by a gay judge in California overturning the gay marriage ban in that state.
  • A group of lawmakers led by Dennis Kucinich have filed a lawsuit against President Obama for violating the War Powers Act in the Libya incursion.
  • And most shocking of all, the woman that Hugh Hefner chose to be his (presumably) final wife jilted him just days before the wedding was scheduled to take place.  Gossip reports claim that her plan was to jilt him at the altar and make millions from post-jilting interviews, but evidently the market for such a thing is rather slim.

We’re not out of the woods yet!

I might have been too optimistic when I wrote that the global planetary intensity would begin to subside as soon as the last aspect aspect of Saturn to Pluto completed in August.  After all, Saturn and Pluto are just a little more than a degree off their exact square, and Jupiter’s expansive qualities still are well within range of exacerbating the power conflicts that Pluto tends to engender.  In addition, Pluto is at a virtual standstill in preparation for its change of direction on September 14th, commanding our attention and making sure that we don’t gloss over the hard stuff.

In addition, the combination of Jupiter and Uranus, which began in Aries in May and continued throughout the summer, served to light a powderkeg of righteous (Jupiter) rebellion (Uranus) that will not be easily extinguished and will lead us right into the Uranus/Pluto square next year.
We are seeing this sort of fiery breaking away (Jupiter/Uranus) from the structures of the past (Saturn square Pluto in Capricorn) all over the world now:

  • As peace talks in the middle east attempt to get underway, Hamas has declared that it will continue attacking settlers and fired a rocket into Israel on Saturday.  This is nothing new, but this kind of conflict has been relatively quiet until recently.
  • In Pakistan, already beset by floods and a general governmental breakdown (Pluto in Capricorn) suicide bombings have attacked civilians in multiple locations including at a Shia demonstration in Quetta and at a mosque in southern Pakistan.
  • In the United States, an anti-government revolutionary fervor is sweeping the country
  • Suicide bombings attacked civilians in several locations in , Tajikistan,
  • New Zealand was struck by a powerful 7.1 magnitude earthquake.  Thankfully no one was killed, but there definitely seems […]
