The Uranus-Pluto Square and Occupy Wall Street
Full Moon: The Peaceful Warrior's Call
Tuesday's Full Moon occurs in the evening at 19 degrees Aries, asking, "Are you fulfilled in how you assert and initiate yourself in the world, in activating your fearless warrior? Have you been unwilling to risk your pioneering mission in the world? This Full Moon includes a challenging aspect from Saturn, who is conjunct the Sun all week, asking us to be practical, realistic, and strategic with our goals. With the Sun-Saturn conjunction, the heaviness or extra responsibilities we may feel are best supported by directing ourselves towards projects we know we can accomplish and teaming up with those who can help us achieve our goals.
This Full Moon's motifs of the disciplined warrior of sincere effort echo much of the recent rebellious, but grounded fervor in the United States since the Sun's entry into the sign of Lady Justice, Libra. A massive movement, whose fire first smoldered in New York, has now ignited citizens across the country. During the first week of October, the group of protestors of Occupy New York released a searing declaration, listing in very specific and acute language all of the many problems and issues demanding attention now, from joblessness, housing foreclosures, insane student loans, bailouts, and much more.
The statement began, "As we gather together in solidarity to express a feeling of mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies."

The Sabian Symbol, an oracular image for each degree of the zodiac, for this Full Moon at 19 Aries is "A magic carpet hovers over the depressing reality of everyday life of an industrial area." Wow. Does this not reflect the thousands of angry Aries protestors marching the streets of New York, and other U.S. cities?! The fact that the Full Moon is on the U.S. Chiron in the area of the home, the 4th house, marks the revelation of the major wounds of this country's inequities, especially regarding the banking and elite's decimation of the average global citizen, making life indeed depressing for others. But Chiron is a mentor and guide who understands the greater purpose from his enhanced "magic carpet perspective." The collective frustration and gathering motivates not only a group empathy and solidarity, but it can awaken the creative potential in individuals to move beyond their governmental structures, towards a more empowered society of free individuals (Aries).
In many of my lectures and newsletters over the last year, I have addressed this major aspect in the sky for the 2010's, the Uranus-Pluto square, the tense friction of the revolutionary seeking to cathartically rebirth all the structures of society towards the creation of the truly liberated human. The Uranus-Pluto contact of the 60's delivered the chaotic confusion of the conjunction. The 2010's square between the two archetypal forces, in contrast, asks us to be more strategic, foundational, and calculated with our approaches to structural overhaul. So far in the U.S., protestors seem to be gathering in a sustainable and peaceful way, highlighting the positive potential of the square to affect long-range change, especially through dialogues and idea-swapping amongst the participants.
I have just edited a new video which paints a portrait of the energies unfolding in 2012 and beyond. It is from my August lecture in Colorado Springs, entitled The Emerging Aquarian Age: The Trance-formations of the 2010s. A twelve minute clip about the Uranus-Pluto square is posted below, with information about the nature and invitation of the two planets as well as previous historical cycles when they met.
