That cause of strife and struggle is what makes us as the marine say"improvise, adapt, and overcome," its what helps us grow as individuals. Both Uranus and Pluto are in cardinal signs, cardinal signs are the initiators, full of energy to start movement. Uranus is the planet of lighting fast change, higher electronics, innovated technology, and rebellion. Its nature in the sign of Aries is even more demonstrative and quick as those are the traits of Aries. Pluto, planet of transformations, underworld, explosions, and the scope of power is in a sign of structure and reputation. We have seen both the foundations of governments, corporations, finances, and laws change under Pluto in Capricorn and we are still just in the beginning stages of this process. Uranus is fighting against the establishment, Pluto, a similar sentiment happened in the 1960's, although in that case they were conjunct, together. A lot of the turmoil that surrounded the new music, art, lifestyles, civil rights laws, and fighting for equality of women gay people was Uranus and Pluto setting up a new paradigm. We are now reviewing that reality today. A lot of good progressive changes came from it, but as with cultural revolution, not all change is good and there always will be opportunists. The backlash of the 60's start a Neo Conservationist movement which was able to successfully gain control of government regulations, intact policies of censorship, and loosening up financial restrictions put in place by Roosevelt, including the weakening of the Glassman Steagall Act, bane of banks investing in Wall Street. This is part of what are the stakes are now, the first challenge to the Uranus Pluto conjunction of the 1960's. There is much reform to do, especially in the financial habits of corporations, since they are so tied to governmental polices in just about every country. You can include the euro crisis happening right now in Europe with Greece in the center is an example of major changes brought on by Uranus Pluto. Greece is a Capricorn country with a Libra Moon and several other planets in late Aries. By the end of the Uranus Pluto squares Greece and much of Europe will have undergone dramatic changes. This will most certainly be true for the fate of the euro.
So that was my primer for Uranus Pluto square for you, now how does this generational aspect affect you? There is a good chance you already know, with even having to look at your natal chart. This aspect is not a sudden change, it has been something you have seen on the horizon for a couple of months or even a year or so, it has been a long time coming. The point is you have been giving an option to either continue to fight against it, stalling, kicking, screaming and whining or go with it, make those hard choices early or at least make a plan to enact and save yourself the anguish. In the end, it doesn't matter, because it is a battle you cannot win in keeping the status quo. Squares cause delays and tension in your life, this one in particular appears like an immovable object going up against an unstoppable force. Later this week on Friday the Sun will be opposite Pluto and Square Uranus, completing a T-Square in the sky.

If you an Aries, Libra, Cancer, or Capricorn you will be feeling this Uranus Pluto square strongly, especially if you were born earlier in the month of your sign.

final square will happen in 2015 and a lot will change between now
Also Saturn goes direct today, so that should help you get some plans moving. He was retrograde since early February, so if you had some plans you had trouble moving forward, now it will be a bit easier to enact as he starts to pick up speed again in the coming weeks.
