The outer Triad of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto lead us all through long wave transformations. They are invisible, so they symbolize all that is invisible to our senses that lead us through circumstances that teach us what we can control, and what we cannot.
They symbolize vaster tides of evolution, whether creative ideas and movements, larger connections between nations, races, and life systems, or the changes that destroy old ideas and eras, making the way open for newer creative ideas and movements. They eternally create, preserve, and destroy, demonstrating the Three Divine Laws in our Solar System of Economy of Energy, Magnetic Attraction, and Synthesis.
They work so absolutely it is impossible to ignore these larger forces of transformation in our lives. Because they move so slowly, they don't go away quickly. Because they work such long range effects, we are forced to take a different view of time, and what we can and cannot accomplish in any given moment given the larger circumstances.
They teach us the limitations of believing "we create our reality." If Saturn is the ego's "Ring Pass Not," these Transpersonal invisible forces are outside of that limiting, binding force. Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto teach us that ego does not control anything outside its own limitations.
The outer Triad represent vast systems that were already in place before we were born. They symbolize those great Beings and movements that set powerful forces into motion across decades and centuries. Within these much larger absolute forces in play, most of us have to learn from a very early age how and when to adapt to our environments.
The challenge for we who would grow toward our higher purpose is to learn to shape our environment, to whatever degree we are able, by our choices in how we experience and respond to the circumstances that matter. We can creatively shape our responses to people and the possibilities and difficulties of life. How we respond to life shapes our character and therefore our "destiny."
So we did not create the larger reality, but we do create our response to that reality as we encounter it. And yes, to some degree that co-creates a different future for ourselves. That's the true test of being human. We are here to learn to be consciously aware of the larger patterns of transformation leading us to our special Destiny, our purpose, and consciously shape our responses accordingly.
As we learn self-discipline of our creature, the Higher Self begins to see the Way clearly. It’s really about learning how to integrate our personality to be an adequate vehicle for our Spiritual purpose, which will play out via the Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in our charts, as well as how we respond to the ongoing forces symbolized by the transiting Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto symbolize the Invisible Triad of Spirit that continually moves our personality “lights” symbolized by the 7 Sacred Planets. The Transpersonal forces show us how to be economical in our use of energy, and the seeds of life that might provide us a fantastic bounty.
They also show us who and what we are attracted to, and why, as well as when the magnetism just isn't right between us and a person, idea, or situation. And they show us how to put it all together in a larger vision that allows us to remember we're forever free to explore the True, the Good, and the Beautiful. These things are what Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto bring us if we open our eyes to their invisible blessings.
