This really is an intense and powerful time. We are in the last vestiges of the Pluto-Uranus square, the defining astrological aspect of the last three years, and what has to be rated as amongst the most powerful astrological phenomena of the last 40 years. As I’ve mentioned plenty of times, Mystic Medusa defines this time as the Zap Zone, and calls it the ‘Evolve or Evaporate’ energy. I’m with her. (see my past posts on this square…).
We get the final hit of this square next Tuesday (17th March, AEST), the seventh since the aspect first asserted its influence in 2012. And between now and then, Mars is tightly wrapped up in the energy, giving it the assertive and powerful drive that Mars bestows on anything it touches. This is the shove we need to make the changes that the Pluto-Uranus square is demanding of us. If we look at what has been going on for since 2012, there will be a pattern of fears and blockages that have been challenged, now is the time to leave aside old attachments and self-delusions, to open to a new experience of power, freedom and love.
How I’m experiencing the energy of the last few weeks is that it is like a probe that is going into the deepest, darkest parts of my soul, bringing up the bits that are hiding in the murky waters, showing me where there is any left over attachments to my old self perceptions. I might be in a seeming innocuous conversation with a friend, and all of a sudden something is triggered, taking me to an emotional experience that is far deeper than what appears to be on the surface. This is the mirror, and it is asking me to confront the places that I still need to let go. Where am I still holding onto an idea that life and love is meant to look a certain way? Where are my fears denying me freedom? It is deep stuff, and it is happening for all of us, personally, socially, politically and spiritually. It’s even happening for the planet … watch for earthquakes, volcanoes, storms and the like over the next few weeks, as this powerful, magnetic energy creates ructions in the material universe.
With so much Mars energy around at the moment, there is likely to be a bit of anger, competitiveness and chest-beating going on this week, especially amongst those who are not in tune with the idea that the challenge is meant to be an internal one. Be cautious of those who are acting out.
The following few weeks after this last square are going to bring in a pair of formidable eclipses, so there will be a bit of discomfort going on around us. Make allowances for that, but don’t miss the value of the opportunity. This really is a time for evolution, for opening to a new experience of power, freedom and love.
