November 5 2008 Whew!!!

Uranus opposite Saturn, exact yesterday. Change, for the better.

Today and in the next few days and weeks, notice the wording that is present in the comments about this election, about Obama, about the vision for the future, and about the possibilities for the US in relation to other countries. The energies of this transit will be around for awhile.

Uranus and Saturn will be in the orb of each other throughout 2009. Other planets will be effecting this transit as we can see happened on the election day. Pluto has been within the orb (10 degrees) of square Uranus since 2007 and will continue until 2020. It will be exact (less than 1 degree) square 2012 to 2015. Pluto is in the orb (10 degrees) square Saturn from November 2008 to August 2011. It will be exact square November 2009 to August 2010. Richard Tarnas in Cosmos and Psyche elucidates the intensities of the Pluto/Uranus transits as experienced in the French Revolution, the 1930's economic crash that brought in new monetary theories, and other revolutionary events. Saturn/Pluto can be experienced as building pressures and tensions when there is a hard aspect such as conjunction, square, or opposition. This powerful transit of destructive energies can be experienced as abrupt disruptions, deep seated fears of 'other', and conflicts of various proportions if we are unconscious individually or collectively. Pluto embodies the elemental forces of nature - death and rebirth cycles. Combined with the Promethean energies of Uranus and the ideological and structural forms of Saturn these combinations can be profoundly transformative. Tarnas views our era as a "renaissance." The transits of this era were last experienced 500 years ago. Neptune in Aquarius sextile Pluto (which will move from Sagittarius to Capricorn by the end of this year) is a soft aspect to the harder transits - the opportunity for deep spiritual transformation.

Your natal chart is in the midst of the world's planet transits in this incredible era. It will be interesting to see how things unfold as we become more conscious of the archetypal energies.
