In part 2 we went into other eras when Uranus was in Aries. Today we explore points in time these next few years when the energies will be most intense, and therefore when major global events may happen.
Just as some people will be more affected than others, some nations will be more impacted by these transiting squares. Since Uranus conjunctions, squares, and oppositions all happen over and over for several years, they will impact an entire span of Cardinal degrees. At present, they have mainly impacted those with planets or sensitive points in the first half of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.
In 2010-11 the square energy mostly affected planets between 1 and 5 of the above signs. In 2012 Uranus began at 1 Aries and moved forward to 9 Aries, where it went retrograde in July 2012. It then went back to 5 Aries where it went direct in December 2012.
January 2013 saw Uranus begin at 5 Aries, and move to 13 before it went stationary retrograde in mid-July. Between mid-July and mid-December 2013 Uranus retrogrades back to 9 Aries. From there it goes direct and moves forward through late July 2014 when it goes retrograde at 17 Aries.
So those who have planets or angles in very early Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn were mainly affected by Uranus conjuncting, squaring, or opposing those points in 2010 through March 2012. Those with points between 6-10 degrees of those signs are mainly being impacted from April 2012 through February 2014. So pretty much all signs have been or will be impacted in profound ways, since very few charts don't have at least one planet somewhere in the first half of Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn.
Since Pluto has also been in early Capricorn since 2008, and Uranus moves faster than Pluto, it was inevitable Uranus would eventually make a square to Pluto. It was anticipated and has now proved that this square has brought and will continue to bring about major transformations in our world and the way we relate to everything and each other! While some disruptions will be severe, and many old forms will be shattered forever, we will also see major innovations and discoveries that will shake up the old world paradigm in major ways.
By the end of this period we shall have a new history, a new science, a new philosophy, a new mythos, and a new vision of the promise of human possibility. We shall understand the Cosmic Laws of Economy of Energy, Magnetic Attraction, and Synthesis from an entirely different angle of approach than now, and find a new way to achieve inner and outer cooperation based in a shared vision with others who share our Soul ideal.
So when can we expect major wreckage and breakthrough points? Again, these will vary with each individual person, city, state, and nation. However, there will be some points when the generic tension will be most challenging, and these are what follows.
Having started in the Summer of 2010 and then abated by the Autumn through March 2011, Uranus square Pluto then began to increase in intensity and became very strong in June, July, August, and September 2011. Any major events happening that Summer associated with this revolutionary, purifying, intensifying, and transforming aspect were probably triggered at key points by various transits, including the Solar Eclipse that made a Cardinal T-square.
After September 2011, the Uranus square Pluto got farther apart. Though it was still triggered each time an inner planet made conjunctions, squares, or oppositions to either of these, the influence wasn’t constant again until March 2012 when the intensity again built to its crescendo beginning May 2012 when the aspect was exact and remained a constant influence through late November 2012. That Winter the square was over 4 degrees wide; still strong, but not exact.
The next in the series of jolts to our collective system occurred beginning March 2013 with the next pass of Mars through Aries. That marked the end of the first complete Mars conjunct Uranus in Aries cycle in this modern era that began in April 2011 when they conjuncted at 2 Aries.
This time the conjunction happened in late March 2013 at 9 Aries which immediately triggered the forming square of Uranus to Pluto in Capricorn at 12 Capricorn on its stationary RX degree. Each subsequent inner planet conjunction to Uranus also triggered the square to Pluto. All of these occurred at 9 Aries, so that degree will prove to be a huge theme through April-May 2014 when the inners again conjunct Uranus and square Pluto.
By May-June 2013 Uranus again made its exact square to Pluto. This was turned into a Cardinal T-square by Mercury and Venus in early Cancer opposing Pluto and squaring Uranus. Then the Sun created the T-square in early July, followed in July and August by Mars and Jupiter in early Cancer triggering everything the Cardinal T-square has been teaching us about balance, justice, perspective, proportion, and karma.
These T-squares are indicative of the "chickens coming home to roost" from what we learned or did not learn about these things between October 2009 and October 2010 when Saturn was in early Libra! In the rolling squares created by Mars and Jupiter, these two planets were conjunct at 6 Cancer in late July, which triggered many points that were made significant during the multiple T-squares and Grand Cardinal Crosses of the Summer of 2010 and 2011. In August, Jupiter in Cancer makes a powerful T-square by its opposition to Pluto and square to Uranus, and this transforms into a Grand Cardinal Cross by the Moon in Libra the weekend of August 10-11.
Uranus again exactly squares Pluto on a constant basis from October 2013 through June 2014, so expect periods of time to get very intense with lots of challenging situations and hard-edged energy in the air. Just stay clear about needs, security, and lines of supply, and you'll do fine.
Important points when the square will be turned into a T-square in 2013 are August 22-27 (Venus in Libra), September 12-17 (Mercury in Libra), September 30-October 6 (Sun in Libra), and of greatest importance, Mars in Libra (December 19-Jan 3). On December 18 the Moon in Cancer makes it into a Grand Cross.
The reason that Mars in Libra trigger is so important is that due to Mars going retrograde at 28 Libra in early March 2014, it will retrograde back to a Grand Cardinal Cross of major proportions between April 19-27, with the acute focus on the EXACT Grand Cardinal Cross of April 22-23, 2014 with Mars RX at 14 Libra, Pluto at 14 Capricorn, Uranus at 14 Aries, and Jupiter at 14 Cancer. I’ll write more about that when we get closer, but for now will say expect spectacular upheavals and dramatic events that will probably please no one!
From late June 2014 through September 2014 the aspect is weak. From October it begins to get stronger, is exact pretty much from November 2014 through April 2015, but after that aspect begins to be less frequent. They dance back and forth with Pluto in various distances of the separating square through late 2015 when they will make their last close square. Though separating, they will be close enough so that any inner planet making a conjunction, square, or opposition to either of them will trigger major effects.
Remember that these square energies got set into motion for the first time during the Summer of 2010 when Jupiter and Uranus in Aries opposed Saturn in Libra with all 3 making a Cardinal T-square with Pluto. So whatever was ending, beginning, turning corners, disrupted, or produced awareness moving you into a new archetype or life role has been and will be impacted by these ongoing squares, oppositions, and T-squares from then through 2015.
So I'll leave you today with a few links so you can look back at the life-altering squares and oppositions of 2010 that have led you to where you're at right now. These are what brought you to the dance. For your renewed consideration,
