End of the World in 2012, when some mystical alignment comes to pass? That’s what many people have been thinking, or made to believe. Something about the Maya Calendar ending. !
About 4-5 years ago. while giving a talk on the 10 Incarnations of Vishnu at `Secret Chief’ , I touched on the `End of the World’ from an astrological point of view . (Secret Chief is a fortnightly pagan social/ talk gathering in Central London, being run by my friend Michael Bingas, High Priest of Wicca). It was purely accidental, but I got into looking at the western astrological transits for the year 2012, especially December. And I could not find anything that is cataclysmic in terms of transits.
Nearest thing I found was this Uranus-square-Pluto, and that was taking place earlier in 2012, not around December. I didn’t and still don’t think the World if going to end! But seeing that Pluto and Uranus are grating with each other, I figured that sudden changes, disruptions, deep intense experiences, death & rebirth and effectively transformations are on the horizon. Well, that was 4-5 years ago.
This year, thanks to Jonathan Cainer (Professional Astrologer whom I have been following for over 15 years) brought up the fact that the Uranus-square-Pluto transit was taking place 7 times..between this year (2012) and 2015.
Now that is something different. And requires more thought. And I haven’t `thought it yet’. I will post more when I have (just `follow’ my blog by putting your e-mail, to keep up to date).
Jonathan hasn’t said when these transits are, but being an astrologer, I finally sat down with a 50 year ephemeris (2000-2050) I flicked through the data, and located the dates when this Pluto-Square-Uranus transit takes place.
Here is that data – with date, and the degrees where Uranus (in Aries) & Pluto (in Capricorn) occupy for each of these events
24th June (8’23”)
19th September (6”57″)
20th May (11’13”)
2nd November (9’25”)
21st April (13’33”)
15th December (12’35”)
17h March (15’19”)
and in 2016, on 25th December’16, these 2 planets come to within 1’42” of one another. By astrological standards, that is quite a large separation for slow moving planets so it won’t `count’ but as far as I feel, that event may produce an echo of similar energies.
These are just the data, and I haven’t given the actual interpretations here yet. Well, to get a sense of what these influences might man to you, look back at what has been happening ..in May/June of this year, and also July/August/September of this year.
Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio, and its transits and energies involve probing, uncovering secrets, exposure, deep obsessions of sexuality, power-seeking, manipulation, as well as the good stuff – death and rebirth through painful personal shifts, transformations, psychology. In mythology, Pluto represents the God Hades of the Underworld! Pluto is the furthest planet in the Solar system, but a few years ago, Astronomers `demoted’ it and put it in the `dwarf planetoid’ category. Astrologers don;t like it, and don’t really care, and will carry on treating Pluto as a planet and a strong influence in charts and people’s lives.
Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius, and brings energies such as innovation, technology, free thinking, rebelliousness, humanitarian activities, as well as the more difficult shocks, sudden disruptions.
So aspects involving these two are bound to have a feel of small deep triggers that explode into sudden large-scale events, which in turn change the norm for good. One example is Earth quakes (from a natural point of view), or an Atom bomb – where small deep and sudden events manifest huge changes! (Now, I must point out, we have not had any high number of earth quakes & storms in the World this year – than in any other year on average. So this i snot how the Uranus-square-pluto is playing out!)
What I find fascinating, despite the painful personal-life events and resulting transformations –that I myself have been going through this year- is the fact that this transit is happening 7 times within a short space of 3 years (These are very slow moving planets, so this sort of transits don’t happen very often..and 3 years is `short time’ for such planets).
So over the next 2 and a half years (between now and March 2015) we and whole World are going to be under this influence. The gaps in between each of the transits of this Uranus-square-pluto is 3month, 8 months, 6 months, 5months, 8 months and 3 months. And such influences take 1-2 months to build energy and then we’ll be recovering and adjusting for a few months afterwards. So it’s gong to be as if we are more or less living under this influence.. hit by their energies wave after wave.
And that – long term, sustained influence of a series of transformations – is how the World is going to change, and we will not recognise the World of 2016 from where we are now. Think of the way Rockets take space capsules into orbits or to the moon or to other planets. Each stage of the Rocket propels the spacecraft further and faster through a process of sudden explosive increase, until the Craft reaches higher speeds.
Each of these Pluto-square-Uranus transits is like the different stages of propulsion, that – though challenging, intense and even painful – is going to push transformation of humanity.
