|24th June 2012|
Ok, so clearly I haven't scanned this for the purposes of impressing you with my skills in glyph rendering. But I have uploaded to impress upon you another interesting 'aspect' of the upcoming exactamunt Uranus Square Pluto on June 24th.
Here is a rundown of where the planets will be on June 24, 2012 at 11am AEST
Sun 2 degrees of Cancer ♋
Moon 23 degrees of Leo ♌
Mercury 27 degrees of Cancer ♋
Venus 7 degrees of Gemini ♊
Mars 24 degrees of Virgo ♍
Jupiter 2 degrees of Gemini ♊
Saturn 22 degrees of Libra ♎
Uranus 8.23 degrees of Aries ♈
Neptune 3 degrees of Pisces ♓
Pluto 8.24 degrees of Capricorn ♑
BM Lilith 21 degrees of Taurus ♉
Pallas Athene 8 degrees of Aries ♈
Ceres o degrees of Gemini ♊
Vesta 23 degrees of Taurus ♉
Juno 22 degrees of Scorpio (rx) ♏
Chiron 9 degrees of Pisces ♓
North node 4 degrees Sagittarius ♐
In my view Pluto at 8 degrees of Capricorn and Uranus at 8 degrees of Aries, makes a square. And this aspect of 90 degrees is the one they make for most of the month of June. But for the worriers or pedants they are exactly square--or will be at some point during the 24 hour period we'll be calling the 24th June. Bearing in mind it is ever a moving sky and nothing ever stays still.
Uranus in Aries is typified by the revolutionary, the anarchist perhaps, who is simply not going to tolerate an unbearable status quo a minute longer. Uranus in Aries is a very powerful placement for both Aries (and Uranus), perhaps it's just as well that it is being squared off by Pluto, God of the underworld, trawler through the mysterious and often gunky stuff that lurks at the bottom of our . . . . well in this case institutions. Uranus in Aries with no resistance in play could be all out thermonuclear war. Pluto in Capricorn will have no nuclear wars, thank you very much, but you can if it is evil and corrupt overthrow your governments and other pernicious institutions, in fact Pluto encourages it.
As you can see from the chart above, there is diddley squat in Aquarius. Every other sign is playing host to a planetary body. But this is not to say that Aquarians will not be affected by this particular square--on the contrary they too are elemental to it, but it could be said that on this day in question, whilst across the ways in Leo (which opposes Aquarius) there be the moon, you can more or less swing a cat in the sign of Aquarius on June 24 and get away with it.
More interestingly is what the asteroids are upto on this day. Very excitingly is the fact that Pallas Athene* will be conjunct Uranus in Aries, thus giving this particular right angle to the Plutocrats a female/warrior edge to it.
*She was seen as a protector of cities, a prophetess, and invincible in battle. [source]
Ceres -- morning porridge-maker and harvester thereof, Venus and Jupiter are in Gemini opposing (more or less) the North Node in Sag, thus making them conjunct the South Node in Gemini. This is an interesting aspect for reflecting intelligently on the role of the Ceres who is sometimes referred to as the Universal mother. AT 0 degrees of Gemini she is only newly arrived into the slipstream of the quick thinking Gemini, where Venus is still in reminisce mode and Jupiter is glad to be back in the action amongst the girls, after keeping us all safely plodding along in Taurus.
Black Moon Lilith conjunct Vesta in Taurus opposing Juno in Scorpio is the clincher for me as to the power that female energies are bringing to bear on this astrological event, (which is set to continue for some time to come).
Why is this the clincher? Juno represents the marriage partner. Juno could be seen as the good wife or the hope for the good wife. But for June at least, she is under stress from Black Moon Lilith who understandably thinks marriage sucks and who at present has household superstar Vesta on-side.
Juno in Scorpio in this chart out on her lonesome speaks to me of the Stepford Wife. Surely a dying breed? But grimly they cling on. Standing by their men, supporting their brave, wonderful husbands, bearing them children, being there for them when they get home from a tough day standing by with a drink, or an alluring look. Then silently cooking dinner whilst being supportive and attentive And worrying about ironing the shirts for the next day. She knows intuitively that this is ultimately an unrewarding existence if looking after her husband is the sole purpose of her life. He thinks otherwise of course . . . who wouldn't. But Lilith and Vesta stare her down and Ceres tells her it's time for a complete rethink on the domestic life that underpins everyone's ability to go out into the world.
