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.
