Financial Markets, Uranus Square Pluto

As we get closer to the aspect, Uranus Squared Pluto, many have been talking about, following is a little background.

From an astrological perspective this is a big deal. It is the waxing square between Uranus and Pluto. This cycle started in 1965/66 with the conjunction of Uranus and Pluto. Much press, well ink anyway, has been given to the negative side of this transit. The mainstream press doesn’t mentioned things astrological. That is not in public. They decry astrology as being old superstitious nonsense. When no one is looking they may check out the sun sign nonsense as published ever day in newspapers worldwide.

The exact square hits June 24, 2012. But this is the first square of seven squares. The dates are;
June 24, 2012
Sept 19, 2012
May 21, 2013
Nov 1, 2013
April 21, 2014 (watch this one)
Dec 15, 2014

All very interesting but what can we expect. Number one the dates are important but long term transits like this really colour the background of history for a number of years. Every once in awhile they become front page news. This will typically happen around the above exact dates and also when other planets or sensitive points pass over Uranus or Pluto in this case.

The latter is exactly what will happen on June 11 when Mercury first squares Uranus and later in the day opposes Pluto. On June 29 the Sun will oppose Pluto and square Uranus.

So what will we expect to see when the Uranus is in waxing square to Pluto. We’ve been seeing the results for some time. This aspect has a historical association between anarchic uprisings and problems with debt Look at Greece and the Eurozone. The current problems will be around for a few years.The debt issue will have major negative consequences for all financial markets.

Other events associated with this square are protest movements, social unrest and perhaps mob violence directed at banks and governments. Tax revolts fit in as well. Look for governments everywhere to take steps to protect themselves from their own people. Although Uranus is about sudden change and surprises, Pluto is about long term changes that will not be undone. It is ruthless in it’s force to change the status quo.

Since Pluto rules atomic energy expect, at the least, issues over atomic energy plants and at the worst……..

Both planets are in cardinal signs which means action here in the physical world. Uranus in Aries means it’s sudden, original eccentric, unconventional aspects will be pursued aggressively. Pluto in Capricorn means it’s penchant for permanent change at all costs will be carried out in a cold, calculating manner. Pluto is all about secrets and Capricorn is all about big institutions including governments and banks.

On the positive side this should be a time of advancement in technology and possibly alternative energy sources. Much may go on in this area which may not become public knowledge until after the square is complete. Thinking back to the mid-1960’s the internet was being worked and so were mini computers with the same technology that would be used for the personal computer. All of these did not become used on a broad scale until years later.

Natural disasters are another area that could increase. It has been increasing the last few years.

In addition to the Uranus Pluto waxing square we have Jupiter entering Gemini on June 11 and on June 12 Jupiter will pass over the point of the May 20, 2012 solar eclipse. We could go up near that date and then back down. 

As an intermediate term aspect Jupiter is in waxing square to Neptune on June 25 one day after the Uranus Pluto square is exact. Jupiter square Neptune can mean apparent or seeming happiness and speculation. It could be interpreted as gain without effort. Things aren't always as they seem. Jupiter is the greater benefict of all the planets, however, Jupiter is in it's detriment in Gemini and Neptune can be all about deceit and lies. Thus this signature is probably indicating a failure in speculation, a scandal (another one), loss and possibly political scandal.


  1. Good pragmatic analysis for week of July 16. Most astrologers are calling for a crash. So far this year, all major astro events have been opposite of what they're supposed to do

  2. I have been your silent reader for long.. Now I think you have to know how much your articles have inspired me to do better. This is very insightful and informative. Thank you for sharing. I would love to see more updates from you.
