    Astrology Enthusiasts of South Florida:

    Quickly, the convention (and it makes sense with regard to interpretation) is that Uranus will form a waxing square (first quarter) with Pluto. The time frame is May 2007 through March 2020, nearly 13 years of effect, actual or symbolic, as you would have it.

    Uranus is often connected with revolution and social movements. An astrologer has nicely linked the planet with Prometheus, thief of fire. To me, that is not a huge leap. Stealing from the gods is revolutionary and bringing it to earth for people to use is social.

    Pluto is about the center of being in that it may be linked with that which is so deep it is not seen, yet that has an influence that is inevitable. The inevitability of what becomes of the cricket in the path of one of those giant rollers you see used on freshly lain roadways. There is no resisting, so Pluto is the rise and fall of civilizations in terms of their inner being. If there is a collective unconscious that is where Pluto stirs up things like war. Personally or collectively there are things beyond control, so Pluto is about birth and death.

    So this aspect is a challenge from the revolutionary to the controller of deep, inevitable powers. It is possible that they, Uranus and Pluto, come to accord. Chaos is not an inevitable result of the challenge (opening square, the challenge to establish something new and to commit to it).

    Our astrologer buddies in Babylon knew of a queen who went to visit Pluto. They called her Inanna and Pluto her sister, Ereshkigal. Inanna is stripped bare of all her trappings of power and hung naked from a meat hook. To make a long (very wonderful) story short, with just a little bit of help she returns wiser and more powerful to her kingdom. We might think of this challenge to Pluto by Uranus is somewhat reflected in that story where Uranus is Inanna and Pluto is Ereshkigal. Inanna must pass through seven gates to get to her sister and at each gate must give up something like headdress, ring, breastplate, queen stuff, until she arrives naked in front of her sister. The square repeats seven times. But that’s just a coincidence. Or is it? All of the squares have Uranus in Aries, the individual, the warrior, revolution; and Pluto in Capricorn, the established order of things, governments, business, etc.

    The United Kingdom's Shane Ward (factoring in Jupiter) gives more commentary:

    The Jupiter / Pluto opposition occurs at 9 degrees of Cancer / Capricorn on 7 August 2013 (9 degrees of Capricorn is incredibly sensitive to any country whose natal chart started on the 1st of January). Jupiter goes stationary retrograde on 6 November 2013 and comes back to opposition on January 31st 2014. Jupiter stations direct at 10 degrees of Cancer on 5 March 2014 before making it’s final opposition. We should make note of events on 11 August 2013 when Jupiter passes 10 degrees of Cancer for the first time (there is a fleeting mini grand cross (half a day at most) involving the Moon where Mars will be later).

    But the final opposition on 20 April 2014 involves a cardinal grand cross with Mars now opposite Uranus and squaring Jupiter opposite Pluto. In astrological circles this 2014 event is big and believed by many to be dangerous; it is a ‘doing’ square because cardinal signs initiate. There is not enough scope in this article to do the grand cross justice but suffice it to say that Jupiter in Cancer is in the sign of protectionism, Uranus in the impetuous sign of Aries, Pluto in the bureaucratic sign of Capricorn and Mars very unhappy in the fickle sign of Libra. The amount of frustration the chart exudes leaves little room for doubt that someone could do something very stupid at this time, maybe for the best of reasons but not helpful at all. Leaders please note.

    Jupiter in opposition to Pluto, for so long, will allow everyone to reflect on wether our laws, education, belief systems and participation have been sufficient to remove all the things that do not work. As I write this today, I believe that the worst is yet to come. Yes, there have been tremendous shifts in the Arab world but at a heavy price and terribly slow. This is ultimately what the world will become impatient about.

    Likewise with reforms for banking. There is far too much tinkering at the edges where the powers that be attempt to window dress the outside of a system that they want to stay the same, failing to realise that it is just not going to happen. The Universe demands change and that means a totally new way of doing business.

    Large corporations are getting too big. Powerful Plutocrats control Government policies. This cannot continue. The masses of money, mostly in the hands of 1% of the world. With our capitalist system suffering the circulatory effects similar to angina, it may not be far off from a fatal heart attack. It strikes me as curious that governments believe the way to get the economy of the world going again is to throw quantitative easing at the minority who have most of the money already. This also has to change and it is interesting to note that in the UK, what was previously underpinned as the minimum wage has been found not fit for purpose, hence a new call now for a ‘living wage’.

    Astrology King, Jamie Partridge of Australia speaks:

    The last series of squares was between 1932 and 1934, with five exact hits. Many of the fears astrologers have about this Uranus square Pluto series are based on what happened to the world in the early 1930′s: the Great Depression, the political and social upheaval, and the rise of dictators and extremism. For a different perspective, a more esoteric view, we can look at Heliocentric astrology. This is useful for the major outer planetary aspects, as when viewed from the Sun (Helios), we get a more solar system based view, there are no retrograde motions, so we end up with one moment in time for the exact square.

    In the 1930′s, this heliocentric event occurred in January 1933. This was the height of the Great Depression, the stock markets were bottoming out, and unemployment was peaking. In January 1933, Adolf Hitler cemented his power, becoming Chancellor of Germany.
