Pluto conjunction IC: Dramatic changes
Mid January 2005 until mid November 2006:
This is a time of great change in your personal and family life and a time of great inner psychological change. The effects of this influence can vary greatly, but it is always a very important one.
On the psychological level, you may encounter certain psychological effects from your past – your childhood and early home life, your relationship with your parents, your hometown or even something from the more distant past of your family or heredity. Psychologists know that the experiences of early life have a strong conditioning affect upon adult behavior, and it is essential to understand the psychological mechanisms created by this experience in order to free yourself from neurotic problems that arise in adulthood. During this period you can gain such understanding, because the forces within you are much more powerful and near the surface, where they can be observed in action.
On a less profound level, this influence can signify that your personal life will go through great changes as certain things pass away and new things come into existence. Obviously this happens all the time, but the changes are much more dramatic now. There may be great changes within your family, such as divorce, death, a major change of residence or the need for major repairs on a building, to name a few of the changes signified by this influence. The main point is that at some level your personal and domestic life needs to be overhauled so that it can be reconstructed along new lines. Often you need to be liberated from the past, not only at the psychological level but in your everyday practical life as well. This is the time to build a new order in your personal life. However, people often attempt to resist such change, with unpleasant results. The energies merely build up to such a point that they are released through a dramatic or unfortunate incident, such as the breakup of a marriage, sudden damage to property or the like. And resisting the energies of change is a waste of an opportunity to totally regenerate your life from its very roots.
Pluto square Ascendant: Apparent power struggles
Mid February 2005 until beginning of December 2006:
This influence usually provides some very intense encounters with others, which may completely transform the important relationships in your life. The problem is that this influence is not always gentle in its effects. You may feel that each of your important relationships, especially a close personal one such as marriage, is going through a period of upheaval that gives you little peace. A relationship that is in great difficulty or that has outlived its function in your life may end altogether, even though you don’t want it to. You can be sure that if a relationship seems to be moving irrevocably to a close now that it is making way for a new life for you. New relationships will replace the old and serve a more constructive purpose.
Persons may enter your life who have a very powerful effect upon your mind and emotions, almost as if they have a magical hold over you. No matter how you strive to escape their influence, you seem to be held by an invisible thread. Such people are holding onto you by a subconscious complex, taking advantage of a weakness or fear within you and using this knowledge to coerce you. They may even be doing this quite inadvertently; their knowledge may be as subconscious as the complex within you that gives them the power. It is important that you learn what part of you is giving someone this power. Do not blame the other person, no matter how culpable he or she seems. Through apparent power struggles with others you will uncover your weaknesses and learn how to deal with them.
In all dealings with other people, be very careful not to resort to underhanded or subversive tactics. This influence makes some people act ruthlessly or feel that their goals justify any means that will attain them. But this kind of attitude can set forces in motion that are difficult to control and extremely negative in their consequences. These forces can lead to a total breakdown in your relationships, if you allow them to begin.
Uranus trine Sun: Hungry for change
Beginning of March 2005 until end of January 2006: Sometimes it is very upsetting to make fundamental changes in your life. But at other times you feel that change is creative and exciting, and this is one of those times. You are eager for change and hope it will lead you to a life that is more exciting, interesting and alive. You look to new ideas and new experiences for insights that will make your life more real. Consequently this is an excellent time to begin studying disciplines that will allow you to develop and grow as a human being. Such disciplines can include encounter or group therapy, yoga or other spiritual disciplines, astrology or any other subject that allows you to see yourself in a new light and to grow in consciousness.
You may encounter new relationships, new friends or even a new love that will allow you to be yourself more than ever before. Your everyday being is compatible with change now, and you are hungry for it in every possible way.
This is a good time to adopt a new physical regimen – a new exercise program, new health habits or a different kind of nutrition – that will allow your body to grow and develop. Break out of old physical habits that have been damaging your body. You might conceivably be able to quit smoking or drop some other physically debilitating habit at this time.
You will be successful in every way that you reach out to encounter new experience. Do not allow conservatism or insecurity to deprive you of this great opportunity. Now you can make changes that will make your life better later on.
Neptune trine Venus: Mystical love
Beginning of March 2005 until end of December 2006:
This influence will stimulate your romantic imagination considerably. This may lead you to an unusually romantic relationship with someone, or it may arouse creative talents that you were not even aware of. The symbol of this influence is the beautiful dream or illusion. Even though it is an illusion, you have the ability now to make it real if you recognize that you must work to make any dream real.
If this influence does bring about a love relationship, it will probably be more romantic and idealized than any you have ever experienced. It will seem like a perfect soul union between the two of you, the realization of your most perfect ideal. However, there is the danger of overidealization.
You will eventually learn to see your partner’s flaws, but this relationship should broaden your understanding of people to the point that you can accept the inevitable flaws. This influence probably will not produce great disappointment in relationships. In fact, under this influence you will be more compassionate and understanding of your lover, almost as if you and your love were one and her problems are yours too. This sense of oneness is based on a deep spiritual truth that you can recognize more easily now, that we are all one. Under this influence you are much more sensitive to the mystical aspects of love. You may not encounter an ideal love under this influence, of course, but even so you will display much more sensitivity in your relationships and understanding of other people.
If you have any intrinsic creative abilities, this influence will stimulate them tremendously. This is an excellent time to begin the study of an art or craft. But this influence is most favorable to the pure arts, those whose sole objective is the creation of beautiful images as opposed to useful art objects. Even if you are not artistic, your ability to perceive beauty in the world around you will be enormously heightened, and you will be much more sensitive to the spirit of life that animates everything in the world.
Jupiter trine Sun: A sense of humor
End of November 2005 until mid July 2006:
This is such a pleasant influence that you may be inclined to sit back, enjoy it and do nothing. However, this is really a very important time in your life because you can reach out into new areas of life and have new and rewarding experiences. Your creative potential is enormous at this time, and you can very easily accomplish a great deal that would be difficult at other times. Your inner energies are strong, and you are full of self-confidence and the feeling that you can do anything.
This influence usually indicates good health and a feeling of well-being, although you may be inclined to put on weight if you are not careful. You may not feel inclined toward physical activity, but it would be a good idea to get some exercise. Make a particular effort to be outdoors. Hiking is a very beneficial activity at this time.
If you are inclined to physical activity, especially athletics, don’t take foolish risks through overconfidence. This influence tends to make you overestimate your energies.
This is an excellent time for all financial matters. You will feel like making your surroundings appear more elegant, and you may spend quite a lot of money doing so. This is perfectly fine, and you should think positively in all ways, but don’t let this concern with material acquisition blind you to some very real possibilities for inner growth.
Travel, either physically or mentally, often accompanies this influence. Take this time to broaden your understanding of the world around you. You have a strong interest in ideas that are different from what you normally know and encounter, and you are much more tolerant of different ways of living. Even people’s usually irritating traits do not bother you at this time. Also your sense of humor is much greater than usual, and you can appreciate the dance of life in all its glory.
Neptune trine Pluto: Strange compulsions
End of February 2006 until end of December 2007:
This influence quickens your interest in the hidden psychological forces that are operating in your life. This can happen in several ways.
First, you may become involved in a group or movement whose purpose is to expand consciousness – for example, one of the various human-potential groups that are thriving today. You may not feel satisfied with the way you have managed your life up till now, and you want to understand and gain greater control of the strange compulsions that everyone experiences from time to time, often with disastrous results. These compulsions are emotionally based drives that seem to operate without any bidding from the conscious mind. They often make you behave in ways that are not appropriate to the situation. Under this influence you will want to change this aspect of your mind, so this is a good time to begin psychotherapy, if you feel that is the best course to take.
Another effect of this influence is to create interest in mystical and occult subjects, again with the aim of increasing your understanding of the universe and of yourself. You are not interested in power over others, which attracts some people to these subjects, or in mystery for its own sake. You are interested in learning what the deepest aspects of the universe can teach you about self-mastery.
If you have already embarked on such a path, you may very well make a significant breakthrough in your search now. Your soul-life may reach an intensity that you have never felt before, increasing your understanding with totally unprecedented insights. But this knowledge will not be abstract – it will transform your life and your ability to experience it.
