March 5 to 12, 2015 Visible planets: Morning: Mercury, Saturn Evening: Venus, Mars, Jupiter

-Outer-Space-Planets-Earth-Hd-Wallpaper-- Well, here we are, just days away from the last of seven exact Uranus in Aries to Pluto in Capricorn squares, and I couldn’t be more impressed by how the state of affairs here on Earth – personal, local and global – so appropriately constellate the energies of the aspects, planets and signs involved. [See last week’s column] This series of exact squares began on June 24, 2012 and will end on March 16, 2015. And, as always, the energies are in orb and can be felt for weeks and months before and after those dates.

solar-system-model-jupiter-earthPlanetary squares are tests of preceding planetary conjunctions and take place minutes, hours, days, weeks, months or years after the birthing aspect of the conjunction. The timing of the consequent square depends upon the speed with which the two planets revolve around the Sun, as well as their relationship to each other. When two planets or asteroids line up exactly at the same degree, in the same sign of the 360° tropical zodiac, a planetary conjunction takes place. Astrologically, this represents birth or rebirth, and marks the initiation of powerful, important new beginnings.

Birthdays and new Moons are annual and monthly examples of planetary conjunctions. The “Saturn return” is an approximate 30-year cyclic conjunction of Saturn to its position at the time of ones’ birth. The Uranus-Pluto conjunction is an example of a conjunction that takes place at recurring and alternating intervals of 111± and 143± years, due to the elliptical orbit of Pluto. The last Uranus-Pluto conjunction took place in the mid-60’s, and the first following square of that conjunction takes place from June 2012 to March 2015 – right now. [Sequential squares of Uranus-Pluto conjunctions are erratic, due to the irregular orbit of Pluto. The last, most recent square of Uranus-Pluto took place from 1932 to 1934, the next Uranus-Pluto square takes place from 2073-2074.]

Music-Girl-First-Love-Fire-WallpaperWhatever comes to life, is awakened or begins at the time of any Uranus-Pluto conjunction are tested at the time of the first separating Uranus-Pluto square. Today – right here, right now – the revolutionary, radical awakenings, upsetting events, heart and mind-altering breakthroughs born out of the game-changing 60’s are being put on trial. This decade marks the 50th anniversaries of the tragic assassinations of JFK, MLK and RFK, as well as the recent March 7th 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, the dramatic Civil Rights March led by Rev. King across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama. osho-wake-up-dangerous-loveViet Nam, anti-war and anti-establishment demonstrations, the back-the-earth movement, hippies, marijuana and LSD, peace, love and rock-n roll…tune in, turn on, drop out? All front and center in light of where were then and where we are today.

heart fireHow far have we come? For those who lived through or came of age during the turbulent, heart-awakening ‘60’s, as well as those who did not and those who came later, we are now facing the great challenge of another life and consciousness changing Uraunus-Pluto square. Can we awaken and sustain the best within us to live our lives in ways that demonstrate the learning and teachings of those times? Can we see through the so-cleverly crafted smoke and mirrors of global and national multi-billion dollar money machines, the ones that enact violence, hate and war? Or the ones that manufacture, promote and feed us poison, rape the Mother Earth and accelerate the desecration of our planet?

fire_loveNot one of us is perfect or without blame. We are all in it together. And we can always do better. So, let’s just do the best we can, stay awake and cultivate relationships that promote peace, justice, love and right action. Heaven help us all.

The Sun-sign interpretations below are written for the areas of life [houses] in the solar chart that have been most affected by the Uranus-Pluto square over the last three years. If you know your rising sign, please read the interpretation for that sign as well to get a more complete understanding of the energies involved.

Aries (Mar. 20-Apr. 19) [1st to 10th House] Issues regarding personal freedom and means of self-expression have been strongly influenced by government entities, legal institutions and people in positions of authority. You have been awakened: liberty is directly related to responsibility. Life is an equation of action and consequence. Everything we do and say comes back to h help or haunt us. Also in focus now: new career direction. Do what you love!

Taurus (Apr. 19-May 20) [12th to 9th House] Compassion, surrender, servitude and helping those who need help have been themes for you over the last three years. While you might not have signed up for so much giving and serving at the start, you can now see the profound benefits of your actions. Altruism, self-sacrifice and philanthropy are not classic Taurus characteristics. You have been forced to grow and it’s awesome. Good work!

Gemini (May 20-June 20) [11th to 8th House] The transformation of your hopes and dreams, aspirations and friendships has been an ongoing and constant source of awakening, enlightenment and change. What you thought you wanted to do and what you have been able do are far apart. Financial involvements, partnership demands and relationship responsibilities have taken priority. Cultivate patience and seek out inspiration.

Cancer (June 20-July 22) [10th to 7th House] The challenges, conflicts and surprises regarding domestic life and professional direction have forced change in both of these areas over the last few years. It’s good and yet may feel somewhat insecure, and we know Cancers love security! Freedom and career independence have become priorities, you need room to grow. Follow your heart when it comes to what you choose and trust that the Universe to provide.

Leo (July 22-Aug. 22) [9th to 6th House] Sports, education, expansion, foreign travel and spirituality have fueled action and motivation, keeping you on a rather high road of exploration and discovery. The only problem is work! Ha! Being of service, maintaining a practice and helping to improve the world have been major themes for you over the last few years. Now you can see the forest for the trees and are ready to focus on what you love most. Go for it.

Virgo (Aug. 22-Sep. 22) [8th to 5th House] Getting it together financially has been an important theme over the last few years. In some cases that meant separating partnerships and involvements with others you loved in order to move forward. Hard as that was, you have made progress. New relationships continue to challenge growth, which is good. Perhaps you really are in love. Consider the alternatives of solo living and continue taking good care of your heart.

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 22) [7th to 4th House] The rather explosive personalities and behaviors of your closest partners have forced you to look within. Recognizing your part in every relationship, the ways you encourage, support and nurture others, as well as how you react to them are the major themes and lessons of the last few years. Challenges manifest growth and personal responsibility gives birth to freedom. Stay on the path and keep the faith.

Scorpio (Oct. 22-Nov. 21) [6th to 3rd House] Radical awakenings and disruptive changes have taken their toll over the last few years. It’s been a wild ride taking you from where you were to where you are today. And, ultimately it’s good. The most gold comes from acceptance, personal responsibility, productivity and creative, positive action. Fighting the tide, struggling against the Universe and trying to control or change others simply does not work.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21-Dec. 20) [5th to 2nd House] The ups and downs, changes and challenges in romantic relationships and love in general have taken you to places and spaces you have never been. Freedom from the known, you have awakened to your own creative spirit and opened your heart. On the other front, money and financial security have demanded your time and attention. Cherish the love, keep the faith, make the commitment and do good work.

Capricorn (Dec. 20-Jan. 19) [4th to 1st House] The last of 7 exact Pluto-Uranus squares surrounds you with a corona of stars and awards you with a golden crown. Congratulations! You have survived. Personal epiphanies and spiritual awakenings have caused you to dig deep and do the necessary inner work you needed to do. Humility and gratitude are powerful allies in this metamorphic transformation. Hang on to the gold of goodness, it carries you far.

Aquarius (Jan. 19-Feb. 18) [3rd to 12th House] Your mind has awakened and you have been enlightened. How does it feel? Of course, family of origin, childhood exposure and life experience continue to influence and subconsciously direct you. Default positions, reactions to others and instinctive behaviors remain. The good news is that you can finally see when you are acting out or acting up, hurting others and doing harm. And you have stopped. Nice!

Pisces (Feb. 18-Mar. 20) [2nd to 11th House] Personal earnings, financial resources, value systems and natural talents have been important themes for you over the last few years. And your hopes and dreams have changed. You have taken a good, long look at aspiration and inspiration, considered the facts and made some important choices. The result is a more realistic view of achievement, life goals and simple pleasures. Health is wealth and gratitude is grace.
