REBUILDING HEALTHY STRUCTURES
The planetary configuration with the most impact right now continues to be the applying square formation between Uranus (radical behavior and change) and Pluto (destruction and regeneration). Although it won’t reach its exact alignment until May of this year, the two are within five degrees of exactitude which is tight enough to set off fireworks around the world. Revolution has spread from Egypt to Libya to Syria to Mali, and resistance (Uranus) to power structures (Pluto) is reaching a feverish pitch. In our personal lives we may have experienced the erosion of the foundational structures upon which we built our day-to-day existence and are having to learn to trust that on the other side of destruction (Pluto) and radical change (Uranus) is a fresh new beginning that allows us to be more authentically true to who we are at our core.
Softening this alignment and providing stability and encouragement is a harmonious sextile between Saturn and Pluto. Saturn is in Scorpio, which is ruled by Pluto under the modern system, so the link to Pluto is a “double whammy” which connects the transformative power of that planet to the discipline of Saturn. Saturn is a builder – he works tirelessly to create structures that have a solid foundation – and in Scorpio he must dig deep below the surface in order to anchor the footings of the structures upon which we rely. The harmonious sextile to Pluto facilitates this process, helping us to understand that which is real and must be retained as opposed to the fluff with which we decorate our day to day existence.
Chiron is tied into the relationship between Saturn and Pluto as it approaches its second harmonious trine to Saturn and third sextile to Pluto. Chiron facilitates any psycho-emotional healing that needs to take place in order for effective transformation to occur.
