It is obvious that this planetary aspect and lunation breathes CHANGE. Everything that prevents us from advancing spiritually must be removed, or amputated from our lives, so that we can continue to evolve. It is possible that in many cases it will occurs literally, i.e. operations, where by something gets removed from our body . Old structures that have ceased to have meaning, will collapse both internally and externally. Everything that it is already in a process of change, will have a kind of review and a new force will remind us that the process has not yet ended and that we must strip ourselves of many outdated ideals, old fashion expectations, destructive attitudes, emotional and financial dependencies.
Uranus impels us to free ourselves, renew ourselves, break free from self-impossed chains, which served us to structure our lives, in the past, but that now slow us down and paralyze us. It is also the big push to rid us of cultural stories that prevent us from making progress in our process of individuation. Pluto brings the dirty laundry out in the open, so that we can really strip ourselves of what you don’t need anymore. Pluto talks about the emotional chains impose to ourselves by ourselves, in order not to feel alone, our obsessions and our need for union with each other, often in not a very healthy way. Finding the balance between these two archetypes, represented by these two planets, which have been in this aspect more or less active since 2010, goes beyond the issue of collective change. We have seen and continue to see the fall of outdated Institutions, Governments, Heads of governmets, financial institutions, , we are becoming increasingly aware of the faults of our educational system, all over the world, but this is also a one-to-one call. For those who have a personal planet constellated by this aspect, for example those born in the last days of March, June or September or December, they have the Sun being aspected by the Square of Uranus and Pluto, equally all those with the Moon or Venus or Mars around 8 to 10 degrees of the cardinal signs,will surely understand what I am talking about. How to find the balance between having intimacy with the other, without losing individuality. How can we feel special and different without feeling an outsider?. How to live our individuality without having to feel superior to others?. How to keep our individuality even in a close relationship with another? How to have a spiritual and deep union with another, without depending emotionally or financially? These are some of the topics constellated by this square, on a personal level.
As stated in the Kabbalah, we all come to this life to “rectify” something, James Hillman, says we all have been “called” to “do” something. Is in these moments when we have the opportunity to see clearly what is that “we should” rectify. Uranus stations retrograde on July 13 and Mercury has its second retrograde of the year as from the 15th. Uranus will be retrograde until December 14 and Mercury stations direct on August 8th. These retrograde periods invite us to review and rethink our situation in order to have a clearer vision of what is that we must correct or simply must solve. The retrograde Mercury normally coincide with a review of agreements or contracts signed in the past, also with the re-organization of paper word, such as bank’s statements, or correspondence should be re-read. The retrograde periods also coincide with poorly interpreted words and discussions on issues that do not seem to get clarified. This retrograde Mercury occurs in the sign of Leo, coinciding with the full moon was in trine to Uranus in Aries. The possibility of new ideas to resolve old issues will be one of the benefits of this aspect, as it is the freedom from issues and mental patterns that limit us and impede our progress.
We all know that halfway through the 1960s, Pluto and Uranus were in conjunction in Virgo, so those born in those years, now have a wonderful opportunity to resolve issues that prevent their spiritual development. Angela Davies, an African American Revolutionary who headed the movement called Black Panthers, who went to jail on more than one occasion, for fighting for freedom and the rights of African Americans in United States, received last week a prize for her work in those years that continues to the present. Moments of real culmination both at work and in private life, are also possibilities for these aspect.
