Uranus Square Pluto

Uranus turned direct on December 13, 2012 after a six-month journey in retrograde motion.  Uranus has always fascinated me, since it is the planet that rules astrology and because it is very prominent in my birth chart.  Therefore, I began to seriously contemplate the planet Uranus and what it means for me and what it means for each of you.  However, because the energy of Uranus has been tied to the energy of Pluto over the last few years, we will need to understand the energy of the two of them together to make sense of what is happening now.

The power of Uranus has been clearly shown over the last couple of years as it has seesawed back and forth in square aspect to Pluto.  Uranus is now in the dynamic, active, and sometimes driven sign of Aries and Pluto is in the sign of traditional, ambitious, self-disciplined Capricorn.  To understand the action of these powerful planets in combination we must first take a look at them as individual planets.

Uranus is the planet of freedom.  It breaks chains!  It shakes things up.  It opens our eyes so we are forced to see the “elephant in the room.”  Uranus often acts suddenly—think volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, explosions, hurricanes and lightning bolts.  It is the planet of revolutions and revelations, sudden insights and independence.  It also rules inventions miracles, and magic.

Pluto is the planet of transformation.  It rules atomic energy, power, and control in any form.  It reveals those things that are hidden.  It works slowly and behind the scenes.  An apt illustration was given by my first astrology teacher.  She said something to the effect that:  “It is like termites are eating your house, but you are unaware of the destruction taking place.  Then one day your house simply sinks to its foundation because the supporting structure has been eroded and destroyed.”

But Pluto is also the planet of rebuilding, rebirth and regeneration.  It is the phoenix rising from the ashes.  Using the example from above as an analogy, once your “house” is completely destroyed, it is time to build a new, stronger house that is not subject to destruction by termites.  Upon reflection, you may admit that the old, fallen “house” no longer met your needs anyway.  You were attached to it because it was familiar and therefore seemed safe.

Always, always, always, there is a hidden blessing in the situation that has caused your suffering.  To the extent that you can stay detached from bemoaning the loss of the old situation; you will be able to see the new beginning that is inherent in the destruction of the old, no longer helpful person, place or thing.

Questions to ask yourself during a Pluto/Uranus square?

  • What have I been holding on to and defending that I need to let go of?
  • What have the big changes (or challenges) that have happened in my life revealed to me about my life and how I have been living it?
  • How can I tune into my inner courage in order to make the needed changes?

Good luck in your journey of freeing (Uranus) yourself from those situations that are crumbling around you (Pluto) and good luck in making a brave new start.
