A Pope for the Uranus/Pluto square

Pope-Francis-selfie

As you know if you’ve been reading the astrological news in the past few years, we are now in the waning phase of a square aspect (90 degrees) between Uranus and Pluto.  You can read more about this phase in the sidebar of this blog if this concept is new to you, and you may want to catch up on this post about the Uranus/Pluto square from last year detailing the news events that correlate with this cycle. One such event was the resignation of Pope Benedict in 2013.  Not […]

Journeys with Mars and the Uranus/Pluto square

I’m finishing up the Planetary Illuminations report, but I wanted to give you a heads up on this important cycle. You can read in the sidebar about the square aspect between Uranus and Pluto that has been creating intensity, drama and change since the two planets first came together back in 2011 (their first meeting was just a degree from exactitude, but close enough to pack a punch).  The sixth exact square is in mid-December, but during November they will be moving closer and closer to the exact alignment that will […]

Introduction to the April Grand Cross

Unlike recent months which have been full of minor planetary aspects that move quickly and don’t create lasting impressions, April’s big news is the Cardinal Grand Cross which will be building throughout the month but will peak in the middle of the month beginning with the lunar eclipse on April 15th and continuing through the following week. Some of you will remember back in 2010 and 2011 when there were similar alignments as Uranus and Pluto began their dance and other faster-moving planets joined in.  At that time many astrologers […]

A look back at the astrology of 2013

Salon posted an article the other year entitled “The year in Misery, 2013.” As a year marked by revelation (and authoritarian attempts to quash revelation), 2013 was a big year for misery — making known and felt our troubling state of current of affairs. This quote accurately describes one aspect of the intense square (90 degree) aspect between Uranus and Pluto that has been driving the global astrology since 2011.  Uranus in Aries breaks down the status quo and creates a desire for change and revolution, and Pluto in Capricorn […]

Uranus square Pluto Part Four: The cycle so far

Today marks the fourth phase in the dynamic square (90 degree) alignment between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn.  The conflict between individual self-expression (Uranus in Aries) and the power establishment and need for control (Pluto in Capricorn) has been seen in virtually every area of our personal lives as well as the landscape of the world political arena.  (See the sidebar for all dates) Although the first exact event took place in June of 2012, Uranus and Pluto came within just a few degrees of exactitude back in […]

Jupiter square Uranus, opening wide the doors of liberation

We are currently in the midst of a major planetary cycle: the square from Uranus to Pluto.  If this concept is new to you, please see the abbreviated explanation in the sidebar of this site.   Jupiter formed an exact square to Uranus last week, the first of three exact alignments that will amplify the shifting tides in our personal lives as well as on the world stage that are creating the necessity for a complete overhaul (Uranus in Aries) of the very foundation of our lives (Pluto in Capricorn).
