We’ll feel the initial effects of this in July and August of this year. But the finale won’t come until March 2015. What on earth might this mean?
An astrological square is just like it sounds – tension – rock rubs against hard spot – wounds fester, fear dominates, and tempers fly.
Pluto is the great timekeeper of the collective. He destroys anything and everything that is old and outworn. Uranus symbolises the eruption of ideas that seize the minds of visionary men. Yet the voices of the prophets have never been welcome when they bring bad news.
The last square between Pluto and Uranus was in 1933-34. Then, attempts to reactivate sagging world economies after the crash of ’29 led to Hitler’s rise in Germany (he was seen as both a reformer and national saviour). In the US, it led to Roosevelt’s ‘New Deal’ (a progressive social program that heralded the start of big government).
Through Cancer, we surmise that fear of rejection underlies the suppressed tension of the aspect.
Through Capricorn we anticipate the energy to be released by the square. Capricorn symbolises the fear of inadequacy – of failing to achieve.
It is precisely this fear that will drive Capricorn (in the guise of big business, governments, and global economic institutions who are indeed failing to achieve and in fear of rejection) into overdrive.
Enter Uranus in Aries – the energy of the warrior – the crusader – the saviour – the impetuous child. Might we expect the rise of another Hitler or Roosevelt? I wouldn’t be at all surprised. The vacancy is undoubtedly open.
And whoever fills it will rise to power as the result of the collapse and disintegration of that which Capricorn best signifies – big government and capitalism.
 Uranus was in powder keg Aries and Pluto was in maternal Cancer. The current 2011-2015 square also features Uranus in powder keg Aries. But Pluto has moved on to oppose maternal Cancer in paternalist Capricorn.
 84 years is roughly the time through which it takes Uranus to make a complete cycle through the 12 zodiac signs. Thus he has returned once again to Aries to complete the square.
