March 13, Uranus enters Aries at 0 degrees, known as the Aries point, or the world point. Uranus at 0 degree of Aries is significant, and Author, Astrologer Celeste Teal writes, “Sometimes it represents a "spectacular out rush of energies... and involvement with the world at large"
In recent days we have seen spectacular acts of bravery as citizens throughout the Middle East, in particular Tunisia, Egypt and Libya, fight for their freedom against long standing dictators and oppressive regimes. This is fueled by the energy of Uranus on the brink of entering the sign of the individual and the individual ego which must assert itself in creative change one way or another.
Uranus entering Aires relates to the self, and will pertain to the will of the individual both on a personal basis and on the world stage. Collectively, groups and organizations will make their will known in the world. As Uranus moves forward in Aries it will square Pluto, the planet which represents ‘the powers that be,’ that include oil producers/governments, and individuals/entities in business such as banks and large corporations.
June/July 2011 Uranus will be part of a ‘Cardinal grand square/cross,’ involving 2 major outer planets: Pluto and Saturn. The Cardinal square first occurred summer of 2010, at which time it was exact (the planets were within 3 degrees of each other. This time they are within 6 degrees of each other, -planets do not have to be exact to create events) and we saw many changes in the world, and tension began to escalate. As a result of the reoccurrence of this square we can expect to see many changes in the world involving politics, business, oil, the financial markets and tensions and explosions will occur in the hotspots around the globe and we are at risk of natural and manmade disasters. Many of these events will be unexpected.
New York Astrologer/Author Mitch Lewis writes, “With the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, and Uranus in Aries this month there will be a lot of aggressiveness in the world. The Middle East revolution will continue and a shift of power that began when Saturn opposed Uranus will change the world forever. This is a period of assertive transition, and the balance of power is up for grabs. The Saturn – Uranus opposition that we experienced the past 18 months always results in a reversal of influence throughout the world. The last time we had this was 1965-7, and that era certainly saw a major change in influence. Now that that opposition has passed we will be dealing with Uranus in square to Pluto for the next few years, which will further erode the stability of the status quo and open us up to more unusual and unexpected power struggles. Within our country we have already seen this energy begin its influence on the political front. The Tea Party is an example of Uranus’ unexpected events, coupled with Pluto’s desire for raw power. As this square comes closer to completion we will see many more examples of its force. Although it doesn’t exactly complete until June 2012, these two planets will be dancing together all year. Uranus rules things that are revolutionary and explosive. Pluto rules power struggles, hidden agendas, and plutonium. They will be in orb until 2016. That’s a long time to hold our breath.
This month will see the beginning of a new 84 year cycle as Uranus enters Aries. It briefly poked its head in this sign last year only to retrograde back into Pisces, now it is completing its entry. This is a very important event in human history. It represents innovation in technological things, and lord knows we have seen more than our share of that lately. But it also represents a shift in direction in collective consciousness. Aries is self-involved and doesn’t always see the other guy. Our society is on the verge of turning its back on many things that have been implemented to aid the collective in the past 80 years. With Uranus entering Aries and the recent deplanetization of Pluto we will continue to see an assault on our group activities.”
I will soon be putting out a piece about the deplanetization of Pluto and what that means to our society. The assault on the unions is only the beginning. We can expect more pensions to be raided, attacks on social security, unemployment benefits and anything held jointly by the collective. Humanity is devolving at the same time that our innovations and inventions are evolving.”--Mitch Lewis
