Uranus Square Pluto History
The last series of squares was between 1932 and 1934, with five exact hits. Many of the fears astrologers have about this Uranus square Pluto series are based on what happened to the world in the early 1930′s: the Great Depression, the political and social upheaval, and the rise of dictators and extremism. For a different perspective, a more esoteric view, we can look at Heliocentric astrology. This is useful for the major outer planetary aspects, as when viewed from the Sun (Helios), we get a more solar system based view, there are no retrograde motions, so we end up with one moment in time for the exact square.
In the 1930′s, this heliocentric event occurred in January 1933. This was the height of the Great Depression, the stock markets were bottoming out, and unemployment was peaking. In January 1933, Adolf Hitler cemented his power, becoming Chancellor of Germany. Pluto, discovered only three years prior, was in line with the Earth. This put a very Pluto-like influence on this square.
Uranus rules invention and technology, and square Pluto we saw in the early 30′s great advancements in this area. If we look to Hitler as a manifestation of ruthless Pluto control and power, we can see how he harnessed the cutting edge technology of the day. He was the first political leader in the world to take advantage of air travel, spreading his message in person all over Germany. He also led the way in the use of new media as a tool for propaganda.
Heliocentric Uranus Square Pluto 2013
Today, our new technology is the Internet, and this does give hope for a “global awakening”. We will most likely face similar challenges to those of the 1930′s to maintain growth and prosperity, forcing us to change direction. In the news we already see extremism rising, unemployment rising, nationalism rising. One big advantage we have today is the global networking that the internet provides. It will be most important that this Uranus freedom is upheld, and it will be challenged by Pluto organizations and governments.
Now to the spiritual, universal, and global side of the Uranus Pluto squares. The Heliocentric event of 1933 turned out to be very useful when we looked at the timing. The exact Heliocentric square in late November 2013 shows a very challenging T-square aspect pattern. Jupiter opposite Pluto, our faith is going to be tested, as will growth and prosperity. At least for this current heliocentric square, Pluto is not in conjunction with the Earth. Mercury sextile Saturn should provide more common sense approach than world domination. Venus sextile Neptune will hopefully result in some more empathy than was shown in the 1930′s.
