1. The ongoing alignment of the planets Uranus and Pluto.
In Astrology Uranus is the planet of independence, freedom, revolution, and in its highest manifestation, spiritual liberation, and Pluto is the planet of death, rebirth and transformation– the type of transformation embodied in a caterpillar emerging from its cocoon as a butterfly. When aligned in challenging relationship, as they are now, they give rise to historical periods of cultural innovation, radical social change and revolutionary transformation.
On December 2015, the sixth of a series of seven 90 degree ‘square’ aspects, spread over a 3 year period from 2012-15 perfects, to be followed by the seventh and final exact alignment on Mar 17, 2015, and another close shave in September.
To get a big picture idea of what to expect, consider that the French Revolution with its rallying cry of ‘liberty, equality and fraternity’, the quantum revolution in physics at the turn of the 20th spiritual revolutionaries J. Krishnamurti and Osho, the Great Depression and the rise of Hitler, the libertarian counter-culture of the 60’s, that revolutionary decade of sexual and female liberation, political protests and mind-expanding use of LSD, and currently, the Digital revolution that is now progressing at warp speed to transform the way we read, listen, view, relate, shop, and in general, do business, all took place under the auspices of Uranus / Pluto alignments.
On a personal level in astrology Uranus represents the urge to free oneself from parental conditioning and societal expectations in order to find one’s own authentic individuality, whilst Pluto represents the drive to heal, cleanse and purify the organism of toxic physical and emotional residues accumulated from past wounds of oppression, betrayal and resentment. A deep and necessary process that cannot be avoided in order to be born again into a new life.
2. Saturn’s Change of Sign from Scorpio to Sagittarius
In astrology Saturn is the Lord of Karma, the planet that ensures we reap what we sow. In Saturn’s realm we are solely responsible for the fruits of our actions, whether those fruits be bitter or sweet. His is the voice of the Father, which at best represents wisdom gained from hard earned experience. He sets the boundaries and ensures we live within them. He represents time, maturity and 7 year life cycles.
He enters Sagittarius on December 24, 2014, retrogrades back into Scorpio on 15 June 2015 and re-enters Sagittarius on 18 September 2015.
His movement from Scorpio to Sagittarius is from deep feeling waters to soaring spirit fire, from gut-level instinctual truth to an all-encompassing higher understanding that everything is either a lesson or a blessing. For the next 3 years he will provide grounding, focus and discipline to the eternal Sagittarius quest for expansion, adventure and freedom. No doubt he will administer a few reality tests along the way to help all those well thought plans and goals come to fruition.
