Jupiter square Uranus

Jupiter in Sagittarius will square Uranus in Pisces three times this year. The first square will last from January 9 to February 8, with the square being exact on the 22nd of January. The second square will last from April 24 through May 24 (Mars will also be conjunct Uranus during this square), and the third from September 29 until October 18. This means we will have three chances to learn the lessons of this aspect (so if you aren't paying attention now it will come around to kick you in the butt a couple more times). Those with the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) prominent in their charts (especially with planets between 9 and 15 degrees in those signs), will feel this aspect the most.

Some words that come to mind when I ponder the meaning of this aspect: crisitunity, serendipity, synchronicity. Unexpected, seemingly random and sometimes chaotic, events will be woven together with incredible opportunities and good fortune. Uranus loves change and Jupiter loves growth, which will lead to a feeling of creative tension within, a longing to deeply explore all the possible ways we can transform ourselves, our lives, and the world. Change and growth are both inevitable, and this aspect challenges us to choose how they will occur in our lives. Misplaced optimism will be replaced with a deepening faith in ourselves.

Mars conjunct Pluto in Sagittarius

I figure it's safe to come out now since the exact point of headbutt (or conjunction, whatever) between Mars and Pluto in Sagittarius has passed. In the past week, during the run up to this conjunction, a mirror has been held up for us to see the results of our actions and how we are unconsciously sabotaging ourselves. Now that the tension, impatience, and frustration is passing, it is a good time to use the positive energy of this conjunction before Mars goes off and headbutts another planet. Pluto is asking us to transform our actions so that we actually generate the results we want. Mars is asking us to stop running on automatic and make conscious choices. So during the next couple of days check in with yourself to make sure your thoughts, feelings, and actions are all in alignment.
