We’ve been dealing with the series of Uranus/Pluto waxing squares for the past three years.
There have been six of these alignments so far, with the first one coming in the summer of 2012 and the most recent one hitting us last December.
And now we’re ready for the seventh and final square.
It’s coming up in just another week, on March 16.
It marks the end of a cycle of these alignments, but not the end of the enormously stressful impact this planetary combination has been having on geopolitics, on community affairs, on market and economic activity, and on our daily lives.
As we noted in our special monograph on The Uranus/Pluto Waxing Square 2012-2015: Expanded Astro-Trading Opportunities, Uranus by itself can be extremely disruptive. It’s associated with surprises, accidents, explosions, bursts of enthusiasm, sudden hostilities, and the rapid disintegration of established forms and expectations.
We reach the end of a cycle with Uranus every 84 years, and that time period often marks significant milestones in the lives of individuals, organizations, and countries as well.
The End of a Cycle of Uranus and Pluto Together
When we add Pluto to the mix, however, the already explosive potential of Uranus can get extreme.
There are wars, natural catastrophes, and riots in the streets.
Tempers flare, and lines are drawn in the sand in families, neighborhoods, and political parties.
We experience times of racial unrest, social tension, confrontation, and sometimes violence and bloodshed.
That’s what’s been in play for the past three years, and that’s what comes into strong focus as we approach the end of a cycle on March 16.
This final alignment at the end of a cycle of seven waxing squares sees the Uranus/Pluto waxing square triggering the Apollon/Aries midpoint (widespread commercial activity; events that have a global impact) and the Hades/Vulcanus midpoint (wickedness, vice, great danger, capital crimes, brutality, murder.
In short, it’s not a very pretty picture.
But even as we count down the days until this ominous astrological event at the end of a cycle in a period of profound stress, we need to remind ourselves that every crisis brings opportunities with it.
