Uranus square Pluto- Revolution meets Regeneration

Uranus is the planet of revolution, unpredictability, and instability. Uranus is the natural ruler of the 11th house and the sign Aquarius. In transit, Uranus often results in sudden upsets, unwelcome changes, and sudden insights.

Pluto is the planet of regeneration, death, rebirth, transformation, obsession, and intensity. Pluto is the natural ruler of the 8th house and the sign Scorpio. In transit, Pluto often results in deep exploration, obsession, the discovery of one’s power, complex involvements, and facing our fears.

Transiting Uranus is now situated in the sign of Aries, while Pluto is in the sign of Capricorn. Both signs are Cardinal; they are the signs which initiate change.

When these two planets collide, significant beginnings and fated endings are in store. Uranus jolts us awake, while Pluto compels us to transform our lives.

The best way to handle any Uranus or Pluto transit is to take the changes as they come, and keep aware that changes are inevitable. Those who cling to the tried and true, and operate on fear of change will have the hardest time with this transit.

How will the Uranus-Pluto square affect you?

1. Consider the houses these planets are transiting. For example, this week, my father had a fainting incident in a public place, and ended up hitting his head, which resulted in several hospital visits. Uranus made an exact square to Pluto on the 19th of September, and my father had his accident just the day before. In my own chart, Uranus is transiting the 4th house, and Pluto is transiting my 1st house. Uranus brought an unexpected, sudden event concerning my family (4th house). A transformation of my self-image (1st house), brought on my Pluto transiting the 1st, also took place; my priorities shifted and I was forced to become more responsible and strong to support my family.

2. Consider the aspects these planets are making to your natal planets (if any). To continue with my earlier example, my father’s natal Neptune received an exact square from Pluto and an exact opposition from transiting Neptune the day of his accident. Neptune rules my father’s 3rd house, which rules cognitive function and the “mind”. As a result of my father hitting his head, he experienced an intense episode of vertigo, along with depression and anxiety.

3. Consider the aspects these planets are making to your progressed planets (if any). My sister’s progressed Venus is at 8 degrees Capricorn, which was affected by the Uranus-Pluto square; Pluto was conjunct her natal Venus, and Uranus was square her natal Venus at the time of my father’s accident. In her progressed chart, Venus rules my sister’s 4th house (home, family).

Uranus transiting the 7th house

Unpredictable, unstable relationships are in order when Uranus is in the 7th, because the people you attract are usually unpredictable and unstable (i.e. Uranian). I find that the guys I meet are usually going through some sort of Uranus transit when they meet me, since Uranus is so strong in my chart.  One man was was having transiting Uranus sextile his natal Venus, and another had transiting Uranus conjunct his natal Venus at the time of our meetings. I was going through a Uranus sextile Venus transit when I met an Aquarian man, and Uranus square my seventh house ruler when I met yet another Aquarian man.
The nature of the planet affecting the love sector reflects the kind of relationship/partner you’ll have during that time. The person doesn’t necessarily have to be a Scorpio (for a Pluto transit), an Aquarius (for an Uranus transit), etc., but the synastry chart or composite chart will usually have the flavor of that planet, or the other person will be going through a similar transit.

Uranus crossing the DC (cusp of the 7th house) usually manifests by meeting someone new, out of the blue, or suddenly breaking up with your partner/your partner suddenly leaving you. Either way, there’s usually a sudden change in your relationship status. People are in and out of your life during this transit, and it’s really hard to find stability in relationships for as long as Uranus is transiting that house. Uranian relationships are often “out of the norm”; you partner with people you wouldn’t have considered before the transit began. Uranian relationships can include long-distance arrangements, too; anything non-traditional, really.

How the person handles this transit depends on the nature of the person. Individuals with heavy water or earth influences would have a more difficult time with a transit like this, as security, stability, and co-dependency are the kinds of relationships they usually seek. Fire and Air signs are generally more free-spirited and non-committal, which would make Uranus transits much easier on them. A friend of mine had a very hard time with this transit, as she is a Taurus Venus. She would meet a man (out of the blue- in true Uranus fashion), fall really hard for him, then they’d break up because he could not commit. She’d be devastated, but then she’d meet someone new in a flash, and the same thing would happen all over again.  And my friend with Venus conjunct Uranus in her natal chart? She had the time of her life.

Astrology of the “Other Woman”

Is he/she really in love with you? IF you are caught up in a love triangle, and do not know what to do, e-mail me at astroladyconsultations@gmail.com! I have helped many people in love triangles (including myself!). I will help you explore the dynamics of your relationship to see what the future holds for you! Order a report today!

A friend of mine recently inquired about how and why people often get entangled in love triangles.

I’ll give you a few examples of “other woman” scenarios to help you understand why this happens..

1) Hard Pisces and Neptunian influences in the love sector make you very self-sacrificial, compassionate, impressionable, and delusional when it comes to relationships.

A woman I recently did a reading for had a chart full of Neptune, most notably: Venus in Pisces.  She was involved with a man who claimed to love her, but was living with his long-term girlfriend, with whom he had a couple of children. This man would complain to my client constantly about how his girlfriend beat him up, treated him badly, etc.. He told my client he couldn’t leave girlfriend because he relied on his girlfriend financially. My client, being a Neptunian, bought into this and began a sexual/emotional relationship with him. She said she wanted to “help” him, and did so by staying with him and offering him unconditional love and support while he was “suffering” at the hands of his abusive girlfriend. In doing so, she sacrificed her own needs in order to make him happy. She said, “I know he truly loves ME, but he’s just with her for financial reasons, and since I love him so much, I’m going to stay with him.”

Piscean/Neptunian people like to “save” people, and this is often done through self-sacrifice. When you’re completely blinded by love for someone, it’s difficult to let go, especially when that Neptunian cloud is blurring your vision. You make excuses for the person, doing anything to keep the “dream” alive in order to avoid facing the truth.  You can’t reason with a Venus-Neptune/Piscean person when it comes to this stuff because they’re so convinced everything is okay.

Rielle Hunter (mistress of John Edwards) has Venus opposite Neptune. Katharine Hepburn (mistress of Spencer Tracy) has Venus square Neptune. I think this is the most common aspect among mistresses.

2) I’ve noticed Venus square Pluto people often get entangled in love triangles. I find that this is common among people who have affairs on their partners, as well as people who end up being the “other woman/man”. This aspect is known for fatalistic tendencies in love. Venus-Pluto people are known for getting into addictive relationships, even if they’re toxic, because unavailable people are so attractive to them. Even in a painful situation, it’s still hard for Venus-Pluto people to let go because the feelings are so intense. Also, women with this aspect are irresistible to men, complicating matters even further. Natives with this aspect must be careful to not fall into sexually/financially exploitative relationships.

3) Heavy 12th house Especially with Venus in there. This is similar to the Neptune/Piscean influence I mentioned before. The 12th house is all about secrets, and having Venus in here would point to a fondness for secret affairs. It turns them on. It’s the kind of relationship which makes them feel most comfortable. Like Neptune/Pisces people, they love the unattainable and tend to fantasize about/idealize their lovers, and might not see their relationships clearly.

4) Heavily Saturnian people. Especially with hard aspects, the person might feel unworthy of love, and has a general distrust for the opposite sex. He/she expects people to cheat, lie, deceive, so these relationships become “normal” to them. If you think every guy is a cheater, it’s easy to end up being with a cheater!

5) Heavily Uranian people. Too independent, commitment-phobic, and restless to have a “regular” relationship. The people who offer them “real” relationships scare them off. What turns a Uranian person on is often someone he/she cannot have, hence the attraction to an unavailable man. Also, the attraction stems from the fact that they, themselves, are incapable of having a committed relationship, so they pick people who have no time for them (i.e. people who are already in relationships).

Synastry aspects and transits can bring these types of relationships into your life, too (i.e. Pluto or Neptune squaring your Venus, or someone’s Neptune/Pluto squaring your Venus).
