It's all so mish mashed and difficult to get a handle on while the Sun is in Pisces. With Mars in Pisces now too, it's as if we're moving under water, through one of those nightmares that pins you down under the weight of its sickly tentacles. Slowly, groggily. But as the Sun moves closer to its ingress of Aries (March 20 at 6:21 p.m. Central) and a conjunction to Uranus March 21, we will be jarred out of the Piscean nightmare grip and woken suddenly into something even more unimaginable.
Uranus is in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn. We are living through this.
As the Sun and then Mars (April 1) enter Aries, the fire burns the misty Piscean fog away and we will start to become fully aware of the shocking, horrifying, stunning magnitude of what is unfolding in Japan.
You think the Gulf of Mexico is bad? That was so last era. This is the Aquarian Age, baby. This one's going to push your survival skills and your levels of detachment to points so extreme you didn't know they even existed.
Like clockwork, it is. The earthquake and tsunami were triggered just as Uranus slid out of the final degree of Pisces, bringing yet more upheaval (Uranus) of the sea (Pisces). The meltdowns currently underway in six nuclear reactors coincide with Uranus (uranium) entering Aries March 11, moving into full square formation with Pluto (plutonium) in Capricorn and bringing us into the themes of the period that included the beginning of the Great Depression and the ramp-up to World War II.
The last time Uranus was in Aries it squared Pluto, then in Cancer, five times between 1932 and 1934, following the discovery of Pluto in our solar system in 1930. That discovery is associated with human beings gaining the ability to annihilate themselves and all life on this planet through atomic weaponry. World War II, of course, culminated in the United States dropping two atomic bombs on Japan - Little Boy on Hiroshima August 6, 1945 and Fat Man on Nagasaki August 9, 1945. Fat Man was made with plutonium (Pluto) and Little Boy uranium (Uranus).
Now, with the sick symbolic events we've all come to know and love, we have a variation on the theme - the worst nuclear disaster Japan has seen since the dropping of the bombs. A seismic weapon-created 9.0 earthquake and tsunami that have killed tens of thousands of people, causing hundreds of aftershocks, most of them significant earthquakes in and of themselves, with multiple nuclear reactors now spewing radiation into the atmosphere. Messing with the very fabric of matter.
As Uranus moves back into war planet-ruled Aries, there is little doubt in my mind that the unnatural disasters set off in Japan are an act of war. I'm a little different from your average cat, though, in that I don't believe there has been a time in recent history that humanity has not been under siege by the forces behind this horror. Things have always been this bad. Those who are up close and personal with Pluto or Scorpio can't deny it. Knowing it is actually our liberation.
The period we are in now (March 11 - March 22) triggers the area where Uranus was during this past cardinal t-square summer, when the G8 and G20 meetings were held in Huntsville and Toronto, Ontario, Canada June 26 and 27, 2010.
From a previous post:
"Uranus re-enters Aries March 11, moving into the zero degree of Aries and triggering the seeds planted - for good or ill - this past summer. March 11 to March 22 is a time period that is especially volatile, kicking off a spring and summer with many hot spots. Uranus will come to within one degree of an exact square to Pluto this July but will not form it's first exact square (of seven) until June 24, 2012."
Last summer during the initial ingress of Uranus into Aries, concrete plans were laid and seeds were planted that will now be set off throughout the entire Uranus - Pluto square cycle and beyond. We can see that many of them will be violent toward life on this planet, including purposeful food shortages and inflation, mass unemployment and poverty, and increasingly devastating unnatural disasters.
I can't help but wonder if the rare earthquake set off in Ontario just prior to the G8 and G20 meetings was a matter of taking some new technology out for a test run with the boys...
Uranus on the last degree of Pisces has hammered home the Piscean lesson, yet again, that a wrong committed against one of us on this planet is a wrong committed against all. The Piscean energetic connection has been used against us in the most heinous manner, just as it was last spring as Uranus traversed tail-end Pisces and we experienced the BP oil/Corexit/synthetic micro-organism disaster, with the initial news of the Deepwater Horizon exploding on April 20, 2010 as Uranus sat at 28 degrees Pisces.
The Sun is now passing through the last degrees of Pisces with wounded healer Chiron on the first degrees. The spiritual Piscean lessons are being driven home physically, spreading through the water and the air as we soak up the solar rays. These tragedies are not neatly separated and contained to the Japanese people nor to the people living near the Gulf of Mexico nor to any other group of people brutalized on this planet past, present or future. These are tragedies of the human race. This has always been so, and even those who turn a blind eye as long as they and their's are spared are having this blinding Uranian insight forced into their skulls from the final degree of the zodiac.
Many in this Cancer Sun nation (Canada) and in the Cancer Sun nation to the south (United States) are starting to realize, after wave after wave of assault, that the shell has been breached. The insulated existences of the middle class are dissolving, falling apart as the economy was set to implode as Pluto ingressed Capricorn - though they'll be clung to way past the point where it's insane to insist things are just hunky dory.
Uranus in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn over the next four years (in energetic effect for the next eight), and this is the beginning of a cycle of huge, man-made disasters, all being blamed on a pissed off "Mother Nature" by those with guilty consciences about what humanity has supposedly done to itself and to this planet.
It's what humanity is having cyclically committed against it that is the real problem here...
And here is the 2012 tie-in.
This is a plan generated long ago with specifically-timed and purposefully set-off End Times events, being flicked like dominoes. Whether you survive or don't survive has nothing to do with enlightenment level, higher or denser vibrations or creating your own positive, positive (and socially privileged) reality. There is nothing natural about what is going on here. This is not coming down from on high. This is not "all part of the divine plan." These are not earth changes triggered by the naughty, naughty collective consciousness of human beings. This is man-made manipulation and abomination to the core, capitalizing on whatever can be capitalized on.
Astrologers say that as a planet leaves a sign, there is often a major event that crystallizes the energy and themes of the transit through that sign. Those using astrology for the timing of the End Times events know this, too, and ensure these days that the events are among the most horrific imaginable. The passage of Uranus from 29 Pisces - the final degree of the zodiac - into zero Aries - the first degree - will now forever be associated with two vicious crimes against humanity (along with the revolutionary upheaval in the Middle East), just as the meltdown of the global economy, also purposefully timed, coincided with Pluto entering Capricorn.
This is how the powers-that-be work with the prevailing energetic conditions to ensure maximum potency.
And figuring it all out is how we do.
Take a look at the never-say-die warrior wisdom and soul autonomy that is rising in you at this time, harness it and take action with it. Take a look at what you are breaking out of - really, there's not much left to lose - and honour it.
Uranus enters new territory on the zero degree of Aries March 22 simultaneously entering its next retrograde shadow. We'll be coming back to this zero degree in November and December of 2011 and into January 2012. The themes remain prevalent, and they heat up again then.
We also have another pressure cooker Summer Solstice coming up with a cardinal t-square involving the Sun in Cancer and Uranus stationing retrograde (very potent) in Aries within one degree of an exact square to Pluto in Capricorn. The shattering events and revolutionary upheaval will not be letting up.
Hot Uranus in Aries Survival Tip:
My new friend and co-worker (and the only Zen monk in this city) suggests eating more foods that contain iodine, like kelp, nori sheets and seaweed, to protect the thyroid from potential radiation exposure.
It's not exactly Duck and Cover, but I think it's a prudent little tip! Regardless of the radiation, a lot of people are iodine deficient.
