Astrology lesson: The effect of planetary cycles
A client asked this question so I thought it might be a good thing to cover in this column: Do planetary cycles like the Uranus/Pluto square (see the sidebar) affect everyone the same?
I used this example to explain how planetary cycles work: When it’s raining in your community, rain pours down on everyone. But everyone is affected differently. Some people love being out in the rain and they may be dancing in the streets. Some people hate to get wet, and they will stay indoors or cover themselves with rain gear. Some people get depressed in the dark days, and they will retreat into their sadness until the Sun returns.
A planetary cycle or movement, whether a huge cycle such as the Uranus/Pluto square that is going on now (see the sidebar) or a tiny little lunar event that may last an hour or two, will affect all of us to one degree or another. If the planetary cycle is near the same degree as a planet in our chart so that it hits us directly, it will have a stronger and more personal impact.
If the planetary cycle is near the same degree as a sensitive point or system in our chart it has the strongest affect of all, stimulating that sensitive point and necessitating some sort of change to bring relief and ultimately, growth and evolution.
