The Pluto-Uranus square is descending upon us ... or are we descendng upon it? As this most upheaval-inducing aspect moves towards exactness (tomorrow, Sept 18!) we can all probably feel big changes afoot, not only in the world but in ourselves.
The square in astrology indicates friction ... the energy of the two planets/signs in the aspect have a more difficult time integrating, than say a flowing trine or excitable sextile. However, the benefit is that squares set up huge opportunities for growth and breakthrough.It's simply impossible to sleep through (unless you put as much energy into numbing yourself in the myriad of ways our culture offers).
We're trying to integrate Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries within ourselves ... which is to say we're trying to bring into balance our need for personal empowerment, authenticity and time-tested principles with revolution and progression. Not an easy task.

I think the more we tune it to our deep inner selves (meditation, listening, losing ourselves some way in our essence be it dance, nature, play), the more we'll be guided to make those decisions that foster our growth. Sure, we'll have to acquiesce to saying goodbye to ways of thinking and acting that don't match up the growing reality of who we are. That can be painful. Saying goodbye to anything can be painful.
I think we just have to remember that something will replace those endings ... something bigger and brigther if we allow it. Get on board with your own revolution and we incite positive change on a global level. The cosmos are simply reflecting the readiness within all of us -- and as a culture -- to wake up and lead wildly authentic, exciting, truthful lives that balk at b.s., delusion and indecision … and make sure by the end of life, we don't have W.T.F.?!? written on our tombstone.
