Tonight marks the concentrated 10-minute time frame (10:05 to 10:15 p.m. CT) in which Mercury Rx, Pluto and Mars come together at 4 degrees Capricorn, and we are informed on this day about our new strategic paths, freshly carved out step-by-step from the destruction, detritus and debris Pluto has brought since 2008 in Capricorn.
The Moon, Uranus, Jupiter and Black Moon Lilith form another cosmic sandwich today, and our success here lies in deeply understanding the context of the times in which we are living and in allowing our movements to be naturally shaped by the wisdom of our souls, connected to spirit, within such times.
The Sabian symbol for 4 degrees Capricorn is: Indians - Some Rowing a Canoe While Others are Dancing a War Dance.
This symbol indicates the multi-layered preparations underway as we pick our way through the rubble just ahead of the Uranus ingress into Aries and the first degree of the astrological zodiac March 11.
Body (Mars) and mind (Mercury) are infused with understanding on the deepest energetic and cellular levels today about the complex trip we're taking and the sharp change in direction and acceleration up ahead.
At the same time, we're being prepared for further multi-dimensional battle under new Aquarian rules, drawing on the wisdom and guidance of the spirit-guided warrior clan lineages. Under the increasingly Aquarian umbrella, the fight for our freedom - physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual - continues. With Uranus' ingress into Aries, the battle sharpens and takes on a new urgency. We have to keep relaxed vigilance as we battle to stay healthy amidst attacks on our physicality and energetic systems, fighting to stay on our own soul's path rather than having our deepest fears coercively manipulated, forcing our hand and diverting us along less long-term-liberating avenues.
With so much Capricorn involved, we're looking to the long term. And with Pluto involved, it's that 'seven generations' type of long-term. This is the progress we're responsible for at this time.
We paddle our own canoes here, one stroke at a time bringing us closer to the final elimination of one path over another, one paradigm over another, and the crossing of the great stream. Eyes ahead, mind on what you're doing, no looking back - despite the overwhelmingly strong emotional pull of the Cancer South Node. Despite our own emotional propaganda, there were no really good old days. Not for everyone. Those often yearned-for and nostalgized 'good old days' were always propped up on the misery of someone else. The safety and security enjoyed by some was bought with the blood of others.
Astrology is about cycles, especially learning from previous cycles so as not to repeat the worst aspects of the past.
And you can see how this war dance energy is being used by those who desire war on this planet. The lock-step machinations that lead toward yet another depopulating Great War. And this is the beauty of astrology - of having such access to it. We can see the patterns and work our way out of them. We can see the manipulations before they come and prepare for them. We can match each step toward war, death, misery, destruction with a step of our own. This is where we're so effective.
Having the Plutonic sociological imagination does not mean resignation that these cycles are set in stone, destined to repeat - far from it. It's by using this tool that we can consciously work on choosing a different path, refusing to be energetically herded down the dystopian Aquarian track.
When Uranus enters Aries, we are in the beginning stages of a series of seven squares to Pluto in Capricorn (2012-2015). The last time Uranus in Aries squared Pluto (in Cancer) coincided with the rise of the Third Reich and the lead-up to World War II (1932-1934), which left 70 million or so dead.
On one level, this aspect series indicates steps taken toward another Great War by the Global Governing Fourth Reich, setting the tone for the burgeoning astrological Aquarian era. Locked-down control by the merged corpo-governmental militarized police state, energetic warfare, forced transhumanism, maybe even an eye toward intergalactic battling for new territory after this planet is further trashed and biological life attacked on the DNA level.
On another level, it indicates the genius manoeuvres of the human population as it rebels and quests for freedom of self, identity, individuality, humanity. Rock and roll, motherfuckers. These aspects indicate a time when shocking confrontations with and increasing awareness of what is really going on on this planet forces a decision from even the most staunchly consensus individuals. It's a time when people will be forced out of robotic compliance en masse and into a fuller understanding of who they are and what they're doing on this planet at this time. We commit fully to being our soul-sovereign human selves and living accordingly or we become the forced alternative...

Pluto entered Cancer July 9, 1913, retrograding back into Gemini and entering Cancer for its full stay May 26, 1914. World War I and the beginning of the Great Depression coincided with Pluto in Cancer, but Pluto had dipped into Leo at the outbreak of World War II - commonly considered September 1, 1939 when Germany and Slovakia invaded Poland.
Part of me had to wonder if the plane crash deaths of almost the entire government of Poland this past April were somehow symbolic in this way...
Uranus entered Aries March 31, 1927, retrograding back into Pisces and entering Aries for its full stay January 13, 1928.
Pluto had been in Cancer for 15 years prior to the first square from Uranus in Aries in April 1932 at 20 degrees of the signs. But this time around, the squares are getting off to a much quicker start with Uranus and Pluto coming very close to squaring each other right off the bat during the cardinal T-squares in the summer of 2010.
You can see the similarities of the lead-up time to the initial square.
The speculation bubble burst on October 28, 1929 in the United States stock market, leading to the misery of the almost fifteen-year Great Depression. This was two-and-a-half years prior to the first Uranus-Pluto square.
The mortgage-based derivatives bubble burst and the U.S. stock market started to implode in September 2008, just under four years from the time of the first Uranus-Pluto square.
Both crashes created ripple-effect mass unemployment in countries around the world, uncertainty and an increasingly desperate population. Building prime conditions to weaken the resistance of the people, initiate the war and create new employment as military agents of the state.
Hitler's Sturm Abteilung civilian army grew exponentially during the time of the Uranus in Aries-Pluto in Cancer squares. In 1931, the SA had 70,000 members. By 1934 and the end of the square series, it had 4,500,000 members.
The current conditions echo this timeframe with offshoots of the police/surveillance state (whether military, police or security) becoming some of the only options for employment during Pluto in Capricorn. We can expect this pressure to continue during the 2012-2015 squares.
Things were set in motion grand-scale during this past summer. Uranus and Pluto will be in energetic square (within range/orb) during 2011 and 2012 leading up to the first exact square - just in time for hyped-to-death 2012.
But we're in a different scenario this time, and the distinctions matter.
Goebbels has replicated by the thousands, with millions of minions to spread the carefully-crafted official word. We now have thousands of radio and television channels combined with a worldwide web - a mainstream media designed and utilized for diversion and control of the people that also has the ability to reach into minds through carefully-created controlled opposition. The supposed alternative infiltrated by poisoned Plutonic tentacles.
Single figureheads are too dangerous in this energetic climate, so there is not one Hitler figure - there is a global network of them. How very Aquarian of them.
And yet, there is volatility in the ranks as those nearing the top of the pyramid-scheme hierarchies turn on each other.
At the same time, the alternative to this plan has also grown. We are also a network that spans the globe. Real gonzo journalism and citizen media refute the lies and reinforce the knowledge that there is a larger force, a broader intelligence at work here. This broader intelligence is what we have the ability to tap into tonight with the Mercury-Pluto-Mars conjunction, so still yourselves and listen, body and mind, to what these three have to say about what comes next for you.
