This coming week brings with it a powerful opportunity for growth, and it might just be a bit uncomfortable!!
Astrologically, the whole period from 2011 to 2015 is an opportunity for radical transformation, both personally and globally. And, we’re experiencing a peak of this energy this week, with the Pluto-Uranus Square exact on 21st May and staying like that till mid-June. No matter what, we will all be feeling an underlying discomfort during this time. We are transforming internally and the world is transforming around us … that is challenging, even if it is welcome!
This Pluto–Uranus Square is an adjustment from the Pluto-Uranus conjunction 40 odd years ago, which saw the birth of the 1960’s flower power revolution. As individuals and on a cultural level we have lost the plot of that revolution, and now is a chance to get back on the path.
On a geo-political level, this transit is showing itself in dissatisfaction with the status quo across the planet over the last few years … think of the social media influenced uprisings in North Africa, and the transformation of business through technology, as well as fundamental changes in economic power throughout Europe and Asia. And wouldn’t it be nice if Australian politics caught up with the need for evolution?
On an individual level we experience this opportunity for change through challenges to our emotional attachments at a deep level … we are being asked to transform the way that we connect with ourselves, with each other and with the collective.
This is a time for fundamental paradigm shifts. We must let go of the stuff that is keeping us stuck, the things that no longer serve us. It is time for clearing it all out …
And if you thought you were immune, good luck! It’s Pluto, so it is not a choice … wherever Pluto plays, it doesn’t ask for permission, it forces itself on us, and it tends to destroy before it allows for regeneration (so, it can be just a little bit uncomfortable in the process). And it is Uranus, so it’s radical … Uranus works like lightning in the way that it shatters anything that’s obsolete, without warning!
Quoting Mystic Medusa, this is the time to evolve or evaporate … it is not a time to hold on to anything that is past its purpose! Take care this week, notice the unconscious rumblings, because that’s where change has to happen, be willing to let go, and be gentle with everyone else’s processing …
(and I haven’t even mentioned next Saturday’s eclipse yet!)
