How else has the world changed since the mid-1960s? In light of the past, how are we doing in the present? Does today's world live up to the promise and idealism seeded in the mid-1960s? What do you believe needs to change to create a harmonious, healthy, ideal culture? If you had to issue a report card, what grade would you give the various structures in your life? How would you grade humanity as a whole? And most important, how would you grade yourself?
Look ahead to 2015 and beyond
Using the results of your reflections, consider what changes you will make to improve your personal grade. How can you empower (Pluto) yourself to create necessary changes? What structures in your life (your body, home, routine, community, belief system) support your ability to be your best self, and which need adjusting? Who are you, really? Can you be brave enough (Aries) to start expressing your unique (Uranus) identity (Aries)?
As you change, you help bring change to the world around you. By tapping your courage and daring to be your true self, you inspire others to look within, reckon with who they really are, and begin expressing their own truth. By making healthful choices and refusing what does not uplift your life, you empower others to do the same. By integrating your mind, body, and spirit, you bring spiritual power to all you think and do, and you help others do the same.
Uranus Square Pluto, 2012 - 2015 by Anne Nordhaus-Bike
As the diagram above indicates, the Uranus-Pluto squares will continue through early 2015. Throughout this period, one of these two planets will be retrograde each time (except for the final square in 2015), indicating we have much to accomplish on the inner, personal plane in order to be ready for the new and better world we must create at this moment in history. If you begin your personal Uranus-Pluto changes now, you will be in a good position to assist in the birth of the new.
Whatever challenges you face, remember that the world needs you--the best you that is possible. May courage light your way, may genius inspire you, and may love ever empower you.
