Overall, Uranus spends about forty percent of its time in retrograde. What Uranus threatens us with not physical death, but a creative, soul-level withering, an inability to thrive that, if allowed to settle within, would rot us from the inside out.
Without Uranus' upending ways, many of us would nestle deep into our most familiar ruts and never look back, comfortable in our ambivalence. Uranus pushes us past the edge comfort, and further still—it is at these boundaries, somewhere between order and abject chaos, where genius and creativity thrive. Uranus shows up in our lives as both the crackle of lightning which burns down our most prized structures as well as the enlightening bolt of intuitive knowing that evokes innovation. Vacillating powerfully—and unexpectedly—between breakdown and breakthrough, Uranus' transits are notoriously difficult to predict in astrological interpretations and singular in their ability to produce out-of-the-blue, shocking outcomes.
More positively, Uranus acts as an awakener, prodding us to face those things which we may intuitively know already but struggle to confront. These wake-up calls, which are often brutally timed, may force us to let go of parts of our ego-identities which are in danger of suffocating the entire system. The urge to transform our reality that is produced by Uranus transits is best re-examined during the Uranus retrogrades, when we may have better objectivity, and a cooler, more even-keeled approach.
During Uranus retrogrades, the volatile pace and pitch of Uranus' energy is halted, dulled, and brought to a manageable level, so that we may finally find a way to focus its brilliance and make use of it. Uranus is retrograde nearly forty-one percent of the year, and thus, it is relatively normal to have Uranus retrograde in the natal chart.
Retrograde planets in the birth chart are sometimes described as being unable to fully express themselves or having oddball, round-about ways of manifesting their influence. Just as common is the idea that retrograde planets in the natal chart only begin to emerge successfully later in life after much introspection and adjustment.
In traditional astrology, however, retrograde planets are not seen as merely misguided, but as being thoroughly weakened.
Speed and visibility were both important considerations to ancient astrologers, and on both accounts, retrograde planets are at a disadvantage. Fast-moving planets were interpreted as being active and able to bring about their significations, while slow-moving planets, like ones in retrograde, were deemed too sluggish to do their job properly. It is worth noting that the outer planets—Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto—had not yet been discovered when the ancient astrologers were drafting their opinions on retrograde planets.

These developments may directly influence the disruption of the control of resources and the monetary system itself. Autonomous ownership and decentralized control of resources would make fundamental resources equally available to all people globally. The heliocentric square, demarcating the actual transition in the Pluto-Eris cycle occurs in August of , and with the two planets remaining in three degree orb throughout Pluto and Eris entered a three degree orb to their heliocentric square in There are several exact geocentric conjunctions that extend from January through , and with a long-standing exact conjunction occurring throughout the second half of Excerpt from the March 6, Lunar Planner In March of , Pluto and Eris approach a one degree orb to their exact geocentric square.
This occurs as Ketu precesses from sidereal Capricorn into late sidereal Sagittarius. This kicks off a several month period impelling accelerated change. Saturn joins the planetary configuration in late April during its retrograde station conjoining Ketu. Jupiter and Saturn will continue to maintain a tight aspect with the Lunar Nodes through September of due to their retrogrades. The Lunar Nodes aspect with the Pluto-Eris square, occurring in March of demarcates just the beginning of the longer-term Pluto-Eris square and its influence for humanity.
The geocentric conjunctions can be seen in the , and graphic ephemerides. The continued effect of Pluto-Eris square along with the other planetary transitions presented above significantly contributes to "The Great Transformation. Ketu's movement into Sagittarius conjoining Pluto and Chariklo impels us to discard, give away or flush away all that is antiquated, all that is clutter, that which obscures and keeps us from living our highest ideals, dreams and aspirations, and all that we give our power away to, and that keeps us from claiming the core power within self.
The Pluto-Chariklo-Ketu synthesis also impels us to elevate how we use our personal power, and power in the world, to create an energetic environment that is healing and that supports to the nourishment and development of the unique attributes inherent to our selves, to our young, and to humankind. This is a theme that will extend throughout the several months ahead. This exceptionally dynamic First Quarter Moon kicks off this event.
The Ketu-Pluto conjunction and the Lunar Nodes T-Square to Eris not only influences what is occurring within ourselves, but it also provides impetus to discard or retire the antiquated Plutonian expression in the world, which is one of dominance and control over others and over resources, and in the very oligarchies functioning in such a capacity.
Pluto also relates to behavioral patterns about how we use resources to generate power. This is why Pluto is associated with nuclear, atomic, and petroleum based power. Thus, the Ketu-Pluto conjunction also provides impetus to relinquish the antiquated ways that we generate power and what we do with it, also impelling us to discard how we destructively use the power we generate from resources to dominate and control.
It as well demarcates the transition from the use of petroleum and nuclear power which require the destruction of resources to generate those forms of power to forms that are life-supportive, regenerative, and renewable. The Lunar Nodes Eris T-Square also indicates disclosures, exposures, and disruptions in the old Plutonian paradigm, which would ultimately aid in this transition.
Although the Lunar Nodes' aspect with the Pluto-Eris square extends for a few months in , keep in mind that the Pluto-Eris square is just beginning—extending through Excerpt from the April 5, Lunar Planner The First Quarter Moon of each lunar cycle draws an external stimulus to initiate action as we move from the inspirational quarter of the lunar cycle into the action quarter. This is an exceptionally dynamic and stimulating First Quarter Moon, which occurs on April 12 in late sidereal Gemini. Jupiter, also aspecting, conjoins the sting of the Scorpion in late sidereal Scorpio, which lies opposite Juno, asteroid of covenants in relations.
Also aspecting are Mercury and Sedna, which form a Yod to Haumea. Rahu's entry into sidereal Gemini delineates a "path of action," that impels exploration into new ways of interaction and intercommunication that leads to and supports our personal growth and wellbeing, and that cultivates new ways of human cooperation and exchange in society, business, commerce, and international affairs.

It brings emphasis to people and groups of a diverse interest and heritage, to public relations and negotiations, and to liaisons. It impels action to link or re-link individuals or groups together for concerted efforts that can serve a purpose far greater than the separate parties can accomplish alone.
Here we find motivation for the coordination and exchange of information between individuals or separate groups, and the restructuring of relations for new ventures that serve the betterment of humankind. The entire Saturn retrograde occurring in and the new It demands we take the responsibility to relinquish antiquated behavioral patterns, belief structures and crystallizations in consciousness, and to spiritualize and elevate our efforts to establish new foundations, organizations and systems in our lives that will support a new societal modality emerging throughout the decade ahead.
The Saturn retrograde occurs entirely in Sagittarius. Saturn remains in Sagittarius through its conjunction with Pluto in late Sagittarius and will enter Capricorn, its domain, in early February of Saturn is peregrine in Sagittarius, meaning that it is merely a visitor passing through an energetic environment where it does not have any specific level of authority. It is neither overly empowered nor is it diminished in any way.
It is however subject to the rule of Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius.
This means that Saturn is under the influence of Jupiter, which is of higher wisdom, movement and expansion. Thus Saturn's opportunity is to learn from Jupiter and elevate its expression, and now, conjoining Ketu, it is impelled to relinquish its antiquated ways of behavior. Thus, this dynamic applies to all that is associated with Saturn in our lives and in society; e.

During the time of Saturn's initial visit into Sagittarius, Jupiter is off visiting a foreign land, Scorpio, with a different ruler, which is another story not pertinent here. Jupiter does not retrograde in Sagittarius, but rapidly moves to its conjunction with Pluto in late Sagittarius, and soon afterward, to its conjunction with Saturn, which occurs in This conjunction and the ensuing new Jupiter-Saturn year cycle, occurs in Capricorn, the land where Saturn rules, and where Jupiter will then be visiting.
This is when the tables turn, or shall I say, when the Tablet of Destinies is passed from Jupiter to Saturn. The point of significance throughout is that the inner work we do during Saturn's retrograde and also during Jupiter and Pluto retrogrades is of utmost importance. The reason for this is because the inner transformations we make throughout directly effect how we will experience Saturn's expression in our lives when it returns to its place of rulership, Capricorn, which occurs from February 3, through January 27, —during the first few years after the transition created by the Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto synthesis and as we enter the new cycles created by these three planets in the following decade.
Mars rules Aries and Scorpio. Mars functions in its masculine expression in Aries and in its feminine expression in Scorpio. We also look at the rulership of Saturn in the houses for If, for example, you have an Aries ascendent defining your first house , then the Ketu-Saturn conjunction transits the 9th house Sag and Rahu transits your 3rd house Gemini. In this case, Saturn's rulership occurs in the 10th Capricorn and 11th Aquarius houses.
If you have a Taurus ascendent, then the Ketu-Saturn conjunction transits the 8th Sag house and Rahu transits your 2nd house Gemini. Saturn's rulership occurs in the 9th Capricorn and 10th Aquarius houses—and so on. This applies to Whole Houses where each sidereal sign defines each house; e. Also consider Ketu and Rahu transits to any natal planets in their associated houses.
You can also consider where your are in your This in no way means that these areas of your life are being destroyed, it means areas of life where there is impetus to claim the wisdom from previous modes of participation. The house that Rahu transits determines where there is impetus to explore new possibilities and where to engage in new experience to serve your greater growth and life purpose.
Occuring in Gemini, this involves communication and exploration amongst humanity and in social interactions, and also in areas of commerce and the exchange of good and services, and all that is associated with Gemini in general. Reference: Your Natal Lunar Nodes. Exploring events occurring around this time in world history may shed some light as to the nature of this cycle and of the square occuring now.
One of the most interesting things I found is that Mayer Amschel Anschel Rothschild February 23, — September 19, , who was the founder of the Rothschild banking dynasty and is considered the "founding father of international finance," initiated his career in banking in the time of the Pluto-Eris synod and geocentric conjunction.
The Rothschild family, of course is one of the several families of the oligarchy in control of global finance and the subsequent control of banking, money and politics worldwide, and of the resultant human condition; i. Jacob taught Rothschild about foreign trade and currency exchange, before he returned to his brothers' business in Frankfurt in Jacob took over his father's banking business after his death in References Origins of the Rothschild family business , rothschildarchive.
