November 12 — Full Moon in Taurus : Luxuriate in the Taurus full moon by hitting the town for a night out with friends, but don't be surprised if things get a little wild. If such an integration is lacking, change may be destructive or ineffective. The Uranus—Pluto square instigated social change on a worldwide scale. The intensity of these influences has kept us in a continual transitional state, without the luxury of holding onto security. Those who did not take the risk to upgrade or transform dynamics in their lives were often confronted with crises. Since this transit was an opening square angle, it is important to refer back to the original conjunction of Uranus and Pluto in —66, and realize that this was also a time of social unrest and accelerated development: The civil rights movement was peaking, and sexual freedom was being advocated.
Now, 45 years later at the square, similar dynamics have surfaced, as seen for example in the greater awareness of the police brutality inflicted upon black people in the United States, and in gay marriage gaining momentum worldwide. The Uranus—Pluto square did not leave us much time for a reprieve from rapid changes and the need to adapt to ongoing transitions. Simultaneously, the transits of Neptune and Chiron in Pisces are also reflected deep existential questions arising from the growing awareness of the ecological trauma we are experiencing.
Will there be a new dawn following the dissolution of so much that has been taken for granted? These intense and complex transits could in fact be precursors to the cycles coming in the year It may seem premature to analyze transits four or five years prior to their occurrence, when so much can happen in between; however, because promises to be a turning point in our history, now is an appropriate time. The year seems not to let up in intensity. From the first days of the year until the very last ones, each month accrues critically important planetary cycles that will undoubtedly set the tone for many years to come.
Here are the most prominent ones:. The year begins soon after a powerful total solar eclipse conjunct Jupiter in Capricorn, and this is followed soon after by the mammoth Saturn—Pluto new cycle conjunction, exactly on their own respective nodes, and also tightly conjunct the Sun, Mercury, and Ceres. In April, Jupiter catches up to Pluto for another new cycle conjunction, in close proximity to Saturn.
This meeting of forces represents, among other things, the redistribution of power in the world or, in other words, which faction will make the decisions that affect the greater collective, whether this occurs in plain sight or behind the scenes. From a spiritual perspective, this cycle reflects a rite of passage determining who is most qualified to be the custodian of resources, and thus regulates who will be in a position of influence. In its purest form, this cycle is one of the highest tests of integrity and morality for those in authority, along with a test of capacity and resilience.
Beyond the management of power, this cycle is also about the skill to increase power and the value of resources. Power and resources can be material but can take the form of knowledge, or spiritual potency, as well. Saturn—Pluto reflects a lesson about the right use of power, so this cycle is also associated with corruption and abuse. Interestingly, David Rockefeller, one of the richest and most influential bankers in the world, was born under a Saturn—Pluto cycle conjunction , and so were Rupert Murdoch opposition , head of a massive media empire, and Bill Gates square , founder of Microsoft and listed as the wealthiest person in the world for a number of years.
Similarly, Saudi Arabia, a country that possesses some of the largest supplies of oil in the world, was established under a Saturn—Pluto opposition. People born with these planets in configuration can be the custodians of power and resources, and their integrity will be tested to manage such a role in this capacity. Alternatively, those born under this cycle can also be the ones who identify and expose possible corruption.
Looking back at previous cycles, we can see that a Saturn—Pluto conjunction occurred in October , around the outbreak of World War I; this global conflict certainly reshuffled power dynamics by dissolving the Russian monarchy, the Ottoman Empire, and the Austro-Hungarian Empire, which led to the redrawing of national borders within Europe.
In , Saturn and Pluto formed an opposition in Capricorn and Cancer, defining an era that included the Great Depression, which started in October , and also the Geneva Convention relative to the ethical treatment of prisoners of war, which entered into effect in July The next Saturn—Pluto cycle commenced in , soon after World War II ended; Germany and Japan lost military influence and dominance, and the power struggle between Capitalism and Communism gained greater intensity. Saturn and Pluto were in opposition in , when the Vietnam War peaked, accentuating the division between the two blocs.
In , the International Monetary Fund IMF , whose aim is to foster global economic growth and reduce world poverty, began its operations. The year also saw the division between India and Pakistan and their establishment as individual sovereignties today both countries have nuclear weapons ; this split cost Mohandas Gandhi his life. While Israel possesses few natural resources no oil in an oil-dominated region , the historical significance and spiritual power of the land are certainly the reasons is perhaps the reason for ongoing battles in the region, essentially for control of the holy city of Jerusalem.

The following cycle of marked a time of economic recession in the world, with the highest rate of unemployment in the U. It also marked the escalation of the Cold War during the Reagan years, later leading to the collapse of the Soviet bloc. Soon after the conjunction, in January , the Kilauea volcano erupted in Hawaii; it has become the longest-lasting volcanic eruption, still flowing in In popular culture, is the year Michael Jackson released the best-selling record album to date, Thriller, establishing his dominance over the pop market.
With the Sun, Ceres, and Mercury within a degree, and the respective South Nodes of Saturn and Pluto close to this degree, we can expect this cycle to have an exceptionally powerful effect, from the year leading up to the conjunction and approximately two years following it. As previously mentioned, this cycle is bound to stimulate significant geopolitical dynamics that will affect the distribution of power in many structures on a global scale. Angular aspects between Saturn and Pluto are also known to reflect natural disasters, particularly seismic and volcanic activity.
A note on the Planetary Nodes: The nodes of the slower-moving planets from Jupiter to Pluto move extremely slowly, about one degree every 72 years. Their position varies only slightly in the course of the Sun cycle 1 year , meaning that they essentially remain in the same position for all of humanity.
We can anticipate important changes in the natural resources industry, the banking system, and regional and world leadership, but it is difficult at this point to anticipate what direction this powerful influence will take.
