Uranus Pluto - a sign of our times



by Marjorie Orr June 24, 2012 10:11 AM EST

Well finally it is here. We have felt the run up to this personally and globally over the past couple of years. Now the first exact Uranus square Pluto occurs this weekend and runs on and off until early 2016. A high-wire combination of planetary energy it accompanies constant rolling change, upheavals and breakthroughs.

 

Uranus wants to set free, to undermine the status quo, to rattle prison bars, and to aim for creative change even if it risks causing chaos. Pluto on the other hand, god of money and power, is determined to maintain control at all costs, to repress, suppress, and maintain control in the hands of the autocrats and dictators.

 

Uranus is an energy of electrifying light, while Pluto’s realm is one of darkness. Uranus explodes into life with sudden shocking movements, is honest to a fault, tears down the veils of hypocrisy, shines light on hidden places, insists on full disclosure, and demands that the past be consigned to the dustbin. Pluto, on the other hand, battens down the hatches, thrives on secrecy and subterfuge, wields fear as a weapon against any attempt to undermine its control, and hangs on with grim determination to what has been.

 

In this fight between two such opposing forces it is never clear which will win. The Arab Spring not quite making it into summer is one obvious example as the revolution that raised people’s hopes of democratic freedom gets firmly blocked by the old guards of vested interests. The global financiers also clearly have no intention of letting go their cellars of gold. Yet.

 

What Uranus square Pluto will certainly do is rock the world on its axis.

Uranus brings revolutions, rebellions, even earthquakes, and can bring established political structures crashing down. Pluto’s darkness and hatred is often projected onto society’s scapegoats. The Jewish story, and black African-American history from slavery to Martin Luther King’s civil-rights movement, have strong connections with this combination of planets.

 

Essentially a destabilizing influence, the end result of Uranus–Pluto conjunctions is not always constructive, progressive, or helpful in laying new foundations that will stand the test of time. In the great universal war between stability and creativity, there needs to be a balance. Uranian creativity needs a degree of chaos to flourish, but too much anarchy leads to demolition, not to lasting achievement; Pluto often leads to its own downfall because of its inability to adapt. The transitions of change are impossible to negotiate if total control is demanded at every stage.

 

Translated into personal terms what Uranus square Pluto says is examine your life and understand that change is not only necessary but also unavoidable during these years. In Chinese script crisis and breakthrough are the same. Almost always change only comes about through forced circumstances.

 

We all cling to the past, to old routines and old relationships like a comfort blanket. It takes the jolt of Uranus to let us see that we have been restricting ourselves unnecessarily, fitting ourselves into the wrong box or one which we have outgrown.

 

Look for the silver linings in new situations into which you are being thrust unwillingly. This isn’t Pollyanna-thinking. Some of the worst experiences of my life have led to me being pushed down roads I would never have travelled which ultimately turned out to be blessings.

 

Embrace the idea of change with all its pain of losing what has been, knowing that here is a chance to open new doors and allow some of your unlived life to take wing. Though do this in the awareness that too much change too quickly leads to anarchy. Find a balance between the old securities and the new freedom.
