This first Uranus-Pluto square comes while Pluto is retrograde, indicating an outer-inner, push-pull quality. Uranus in Aries wants to rush forward (Aries) to create quick change (Aries) on the material plane, but Pluto retrograde is pulling our evolutionary quest (Pluto) inward (retrograde). This situation suggests we go deeply within (Pluto retrograde) to evaluate all structures and boundaries (Capricorn) and use what we learn to inform our efforts to free (Uranus) our personal (Aries) and collective (Uranus) identity (Aries).

During this process, we can gain vital information by looking to the past. Regardless of whether you were born before or after the Uranus-Pluto conjunctions of 1965 and 1966, take some time to explore how much the world has changed since that time. On a simple level, consider how American culture has evolved (Pluto) beyond casual, rampant littering to widespread acceptance of recycling (Virgo) . Note the much greater role pets (Virgo) play in daily life (Virgo) and how awakening (Uranus) to the importance of cleaning up after one's dog has contributed to health and cleanliness (Virgo). On a more complex level, consider how concerns about health have exploded into today's huge medical system and how desires for holistic solutions have created an industry of alternatives (often not covered by insurance).

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.
