Astrology Forecast ~ December 8, 2014 by Chris Flisher
Uranus, the planet of revolution sits at 12 degrees Aries and Pluto, the planet representing re-construction, stares back in an exact 90 degree angle at 12 degrees of Capricorn. This will be the 6th time these two have squared off to each other. The last exact hit will be in March of 2015. This combination signals a reconstruction of long-held beliefs and structures. Over-turning long-standing patterns are what we can expect from this slow and gradual influence. When we scan the newspapers or glance back at history we can see what has clearly been wrought at the hand of these two feisty planets. While their alignment may be slow and methodical, their influence can be seen so very clearly. They first met in 2008, and we can now look back and see a much different cultural landscape as a result of their impact. Astrology is often best used for looking back, because we can then see the precision of the influence as history accurately fills in the blanks. While we cannot be specific in our estimations of events with precise detail, we can observe trends, themes, and long-lasting shifts. Astrology is theme-based and should not be used as a predictive tool, but rather as a barometer of change.
The landscape has significantly altered since these two planets came into contact. (For those of you who are unclear; when planets stand at 90 degree angles to each other, we feel the impact of their archetypal meaning.) History bears this out quite effectively. Full transparency is one of the buy-products of this alignment. This is clearly evident in the housing bust; the job market; the cultural and political rebellion of the Middle East; the Arab Spring; the unveiling of highly-regarded public figures and so on. The list of revelations, revolutions and innovation are staggering from a historical perspective. And we need history to provide that context. When we are immersed in our busy daily lives, we are unclear about the long-term shifts that are now clearly evident when we glance backwards. This is Pluto’s role; tear down and reconstruct. While Uranus, provides the revolutionary charge necessary to get the process started. The action in this type of alignment typically happens in the applying period; before the planets are exact. After they align, they separate and the impact lessens. The final square of these two planets occurs on March 17, 2015. Between this alignment and the one in early spring, we may see the final culmination of their teamwork. Reconstruction, yes, but always for the greater good. This action re-sets the baseline and from there, we rebuild, wiser for the influence.
