I was in the grip of insomnia in the wee hours last night, with a general sense of being perturbed. We're inching closer to the Uranus-Pluto square's exactness (Sunday, June 24th), and that's an epic aspect for all kinds of unrest.
In her report on the first Uranus-Pluto square, Welcome to the Truth, timekeeper Barbara Hand Clow says we'll look back on this time as one when humanity took a "great leap forward."
As one of those humans living in this extraordinary time, are you perturbed? Such a great word, and in astronomy, perturbation is how new planets, not to mention Neptune and Pluto, are discovered. If you're the center of your universe, how is the square of these two outer planets disrupting your status quo, and alerting you to new worlds of possibility?
With Pluto's transit in Capricorn, I'm seeing in some cases this creates a loss of bearings. Cardinal Capricorn finds its power in the physical plane, with a drive to stand firm, manifest, create a bountiful spread, and leave a lasting legacy. The Seagoat finds meaning from its role as a creator on the earthly plane. Some are experiencing a devastating loss of material world bearings -- with a loss of home, work role, position of authority.
Some who've worked hard their whole lives are seeing what they've built up taken away, drained or under threat. This brings on the fears, the identity crisis and not seeing a place in society. What do they have to show for their work lives? This is a Capricorn question, and much soul searching happens with Pluto in this deeply contemplative sign.
What fears and anxieties come up with a loss of bearings? This is where the courage and carpe diem-ing of Uranus Aries comes in! After (or in the midst of) any loss or time of grieving what was, there's a rebirth. With a square, something new is created. Where Pluto Capricorn transits in your birth chart at 8 degrees is an area to live by a renewed sense of ethics, and to demonstrate authenticity through how you live.
These were night thoughts that came to me, and I'll share more revelations about Pluto transiting my 11th house soon. What's happening for you? Do you see where Pluto and Uranus are perturbing you, unsettling the norms and revealing the new? Let's pace ourselves, because stamina is needed here for the long transition through to 2015.
