Revolution: Inside and in the World

by Kay Taylor February 14, 2011 02:36 AM EST
The Egyptian revolution provides us with a very real view of our current revolutionary themes:  a dedicated and brave group of people rising against a corrupt and out of touch structure of government. A quote in sfgate struck me: 'Mubarak', said a senior Egyptian official, 'tried to manage the crisis within the existing structures and norms. That was clearly too late. The incremental offers of reform also were clearly insufficient.'

In this quote we can hear the planetary energy of the cardinal climax of 2010 and the continuing squares of Uranus and Pluto, especially strong in the next few years. Uranus will be in Aries: the planet of revolution operating with a new, rapid, courageous immediacy. It will square Pluto in Capricorn: transformation, slow, steady and thorough. Meanwhile, Saturn in Libra, involved in the square last year, represents a continued restructuring of our lives in a way designed to bring about more harmony, balance and fairness.

Just as Mubarek tried to manage the crisis in his life and in his country within the existing structures and norms, often we try to do the same thing in our personal lives. We don't want to make drastic changes, we try to control and protect our traditional habit patterns. We might be self-involved and unaware of others' needs, or blindly trying to make other people happy, or just trying to create a future outcome we decided on long ago under different circumstances.

Incremental reform isn't really going to work well in a season of Uranus/Pluto squares. Our reform will be radical, amazing, creative, unexpected, powerful and deep. Many of us are feeling unsettled by inner turmoil, our apparent need for big changes that conflict with long held beliefs or practical realities.

The squares between Uranus and Pluto will be exact and intense between 2012 and 2015: seven of them in all. What we're all feeling now is indicated by loose squares with the transiting Nodes of the Moon, and the effect of Saturn retrograde. We are only in the beginning of our inner and outer revolutions.

The events in Egypt are a worldly indication of these times of change. We can learn from them and be proactive in our lives and in our communities.

In meditation, you might ponder some questions. Where do you feel oppressed? Where are lively, young, creative parts of yourself dominated by inner critics and petty tyrants? Ask perhaps what it would be like to live a free and sustainable life in ways you might not have thought of before. Invite your spirit guides to open your eyes to game changing new ideas.

These revolutionary planets suggest we all need a radical course correction. We're being shown all the ways our lives are not in harmony or balance so we can make changes before it's too late. I believe we will make the changes we need to make, that as humans we are creative and resilient. We just need to know when to step down from our old structures and take a risk to be free and in the present moment.
