-    1930-1935, Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Cancer (last quarter).   The Great Depression and the rise of nationalism (Cancer/homeland).   Gandhi's Salt March of 1930.

-    1964-1967, Uranus and Pluto in Virgo (a new cycle begins).   The Vietnam War, the Peace Movement, the Israeli Six-Day War, Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement, The Feminist Movement, Rachel Carson's Silent Spring and the birth of the Environmental Movement (Virgo).    How do we use our resources?

-    2011-2015: Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn: The Inverted Power Pyramid -- or bottom up civil action.   The Arab Spring, London Riots, Occupy Movement and beyond!

      As you can see, these two planets are at least synchronized to events happening within our social structures. From 1090 AD, the time of the First Crusade, to 1850, these planets have begun their cycle in individualistic, creative fire signs (Aries and Leo) -- cycles where we've pursued our own interests without regard to others or Nature.   So when Pluto and Uranus came together in Virgo in the 1960s, they began a new cycle of transformation (like a new Moon) in more ways than one.   Having this and the next series of Pluto/Uranus conjunctions in Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) bodes well that we'll finally get down to the job of caring for and working with the Earth.    Virgo is the sign representing workers, the environment, health and consciousness, of service and the practical mind.  


Flower Power

Since the new cycle was the birth of a new energy, the 60s were wild and carefree like young children.   Something brand new came into the world -- make love not war!   The youth culture -- trust nobody over 30!     Now these two forces are in a 90-degree angle to each other -- the angle we liken to the Hero's Journey, where we have to grow by overcoming obstacles and bringing the new insights of the 60s into our public life.   Universal health care, sustainable and healthy food production, environmental safeguards, workers' rights over corporate rights -- these are all up for renewal.   And in the end, they will inevitably be implemented.   How that happens is up to us.

Pluto can be associated with the archetypal Shadow and in Capricorn he's showing us our collective financial shadow -- we overspend, create too much waste and have unrealistic expectations.   It's time to confront the hard truths of our way of life and perhaps even sacrifice the extraneous "stuff' while we take responsibility for the mess we've created.  

With Uranus the original Mind in a 90* angle to Pluto the unconscious evolutionary forces of life, we have to move up to a higher level of consciousness and communications as we struggle to see both sides of the issue and find solutions to the problems we've created.   We cannot demonize the "other side' even though they seem to enjoy demonizing us.    We need to continue to cultivate the seeds planted in the 60s in peaceful and responsible ways.   Besides working politically for change, we also need to cultivate Art and collaboration to pave the way for the change that will come at the end of this Pluto transit in 2024.

There will be 7 exact squares between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn from June 24, 2012 to March 16-17, 2015 -- occurring between 7* - 15* Capricorn/Aries.   If you have planets at these degrees in any of the 4 Cardinal signs, you're in for big transformations.   If you have planets at these degrees in fixed or mutable signs, they'll affect in you different ways.      But we all will be affected, because Capricorn is the sign of our collective institutions, especially our financial and governmental institutions. We're all in this together!

Every 248 years, Pluto goes into Capricorn.   The last time it did was right before the American Revolution.   Since Capricorn rules our collective social structures, these time periods usually signal periods of social unrest and institutional reformation.   We're watching as Pluto in Capricorn reveals the rot at the base of our patriarchal institutions of finance and governance.   It would be funny if it weren't so painful.   The hypocrisy of our leaders can lead us to become cynical or it can make us determined to change things.   I vote for the change, don't you??

Because of the way energy works, Uranus in Aries' revolutionary power will have more influence as time goes on.   This means that Uranus in Aries, waking us up to our individual power and to our archetypal identities, will push at those old patriarchal institutions, especially corporations, until they collapse and transform into institutions that work for everyone's welfare, not just for the 1%.   But it will take WORK on our part.   Just don't despair -- have more imagination than that!

So watch out for lots of breakdown, and surprising fresh starts out of the blue.    And sometimes it's both!    The opportunities come from the cultural break down.   Remember to turn inward, and hone your ability to hear your own guidance. Whether this guidance comes through dreams, flashes of intuition, synchronicity, or messages you receive from others, stay open to your imagination.   That's what will help you decipher the meaning of what's happening to you and it will give you clues on handling any situation.   

The fact that Neptune is in its own sign of Pisces, source of spiritual awakening and imagination, gives us the cosmic go-ahead to dream large and envision with love possible futures that can come into being in the cracks of our crumbling patriarchal structures.   We will salvage the wise values of the past and bring them forward into the future to be integrated with the new structures we're building.

The Sabian symbol for Uranus at 9*Aries is: A crystal gazer.   An intuitive understanding of our wholeness, our past lives as well as our future ones.   We need to concentrate and focus our awareness if we want to see this kind of wholeness.   This is the energy that will lead us to our destiny.   Yes, we each have one!

The Sabian symbol for Pluto at 9* Capricorn is: An angel carrying a harp.   This image seems to carry the message -- the Force is with you.   Not only is there an angel to guide you, but it does it with sound and vibration, with the art of peace rather than the sword of war.   There is always meaning in life. We just need to trust Life and look for the meaning.  

Well, good luck and enjoy these next few weeks.   Try to meet them with an open mind and loving heart.   It's your life, and whatever comes to you is part of your life's lessons.   Live life fully and embrace the darkness of the Unknown.   And dance with it!

Blessings on us All!

Cathy Pagano is the author of a new book, "Wisdom's Daughters: How Women Can Change the World". Cathy trained at the C. G. Jung Institut-Zurich in dream interpretation, then got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology in Feminine Spirituality, and along the way became a certified Life Coach. As an astrologer and storyteller, she weaves the Cosmic Stories written in the stars and from The Bard's Grove, comments on emerging archetypal themes in movies. Cathy works with the tools of the imagination - dreams, alchemy, myths, astrology, symbolic language, storytelling, ritual - to awaken the Soul's wisdom.

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.

Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.

Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
