Those who are familiar with astrology and the current influences may wonder why I only focused on the square between Uranus and Pluto, rather than the Grand Cross for the eclipse. I find most people react badly to mention of words like Grand Cross, and the first thing they ask  is -“when’s it going to be over?”   I find it more helpful to focus on the root of the matter and deal with that , and have positive reasonable  means for working with the influences.  Uranus and Pluto are going to be in a long cosmic square dance  til approximately  2019, maintaining very close orbits the whole time as they progress slowly together.  They form the foundation of change that will be happening over the next few years and the sun, moon and other planets are the catalysts and triggers that will  connect with them, particularly  as they go into  cardinal signs .   As in the case of the recent eclipse with the sun and saturn creating the four squares .   But, I believe that  the crux of the matter  is to recognize the real ally in all  this – Uranus , the awakener that connects us with the higher mind.

All the planets serve functions in the great flow, Neptune dissolves , Pluto revolutionizes , Uranus breaks up existing outmoded structures and Saturn patiently rebuilds. We often resist Saturn because its structure can restrict us, and or we experience the effects of the structures we create (Karma). But ultimately it is Saturn that helps us concretize our dreams and visions and creates a working foundation through which we can operate.  Similarly Uranus  can disrupt or even destroy a structure in our life,  but it is only the structures that wont last anyway.  A good relationship will weather a Uranus transit, although changes will have to be made , as well as a true vocation or spiritual path.  But the symbol of Uranus is the lightening bolt of realization  that electrifies and literally brings the potential for enlightenment in its wake. It reveals the truth to us , the truth that transforms our world view . It is also characterized as the Higher mind or spiritual intelligence and herein we have our ally.  Because as we can understand our lessons we can willingly participate.  So as Pluto in Capricorn is challenging us to re-evaluate our unconscious structures , especially as they relate to our everyday real world ( Capricorn is highly pragmatic), Uranus in Aries, in  sign of the self and the creative life force, can show us how to make the changes necessary.  The Aries energy making it self awareness, which promotes responsibility and accountability for our actions that have made  our reality, as well as offering us  the potential to recreate it.   These  awarenesses will come as “Aha” moments when we suddenly see clearly( for what may be the first time in a long,  time , if ever,) patterns in our lives, things we have done and choices we have  made to create those  patterns.  In the process of seeing possibly wrong  choices or mistakes it is easy to fall into feelings of failure and/or  regret, which is why we avoid looking at these things in the first place.  But the way to really benefit from this transit is to focus on what can be changed.  If you allow yourself the space and time for reflection and contemplation these “aha” moments may be even more profound.  If we view the astrological influences as the force  of evolution, what better way to change the planet than to awaken the consciousness of the human beings on it?
