There is big buzz around this second “Uranus/Pluto Square” or “Uranus Square Pluto” aspect which is happening September 18/19 2012. What does this mean for us? Very dynamic transformative energy which makes space for deep healing… Here are the gathered *insights* from the wisest astrologers…
First from the wonderful Dipali Desai and her Celestial Space Astrology:
“Any type of Pluto transit is one that promises to leave nothing – not one speck unturned or unchecked. There is complete and total demolition so something new is born in place of the old. A Pluto transit is an incredibly important phase of development.”
“It is truly a magnificent process once you are at the end of the tunnel and see the light.  Pluto transits symbolizes a time of total degeneration and decay. We journey into the symbolic ‘Underworld’ eventually emerge reborn. This can be a symbolism of ‘The Dark Night of the Soul.'”
Instead of fearing a Pluto Transit, join up with the potential. The potential of a Pluto transit can be viewed as a powerful ally and friend in the evolutionary process. Pluto symbolizes power, death, rebirth, transmutation, transformation and resurrection plus other things.”
“We certainly come face to face with the deepest darkest fears that are lurking in the caverns of our being under a Pluto transit. Yet facing this is a basic requirement of Pluto’s transit.  Pluto also symbolizes the unconscious as well as what we hold buried in our cellular memory. It is whatever has become extreme and gone way off-balance.”
“Here are 7 suggestions to work with a Pluto Transit:
1.) Do not resist it, try to avoid it, deny it or hide from it...
2.) Eliminate whatever no longer holds value to you or your life
3.) Do not attempt to control
4.) Spiritual Insight and understanding arrives in the aftermath
5.) It starts on the subtle levels and arrives into the physical level
6.) A sense of death, dying, grief and loss. These themes are real under a Pluto Transit…
7.) Becoming comfortable within the Void
8.) Have a select few Trusted people as support network
9.) Accessing Resources you never knew you had
10.) Have not doubt – There is Light at the End of the Tunnel. Just because you are dragged to your personal Underworld or hell through this type of phase of development does not mean you will always be there. Well you can if you choose it. However the ultimate goal with Pluto transit is to bring you back into the light or conscious awareness and empowerment. You are brought back to the world you live in so you can practice remaining empowered and in trust.”
“So be prepared, it may not look good, feel good, smell good or taste good in the beginning or in the middle of such a Pluto transit. In the end, there is potential for you to resurrect like the Phoenix rising from the ashes with a higher level of awareness and empowerment.”

From Barbara Hand Clow from Red Ice Creations:
“In my analysis of the first Uranus/Pluto square on June 24, 2012, I suggested we are awakening the human heart…This field is intensely creative, which causes our thoughts to manifest all around us, so we are challenged to clearly and wisely intend what we want to create.”
“Whenever we navigate reality by means of clear intentions, we utilize quantum forces—the highly accelerated energy field that creates events based on what’s in our minds. Because more and more people have learned how to create this way, miracles are happening…”
“..Resist allowing your mind to fog over when you hear the word “quantum!” Quantum physicists have discovered something astonishing that is also very simple: All realities are directed and transformed by the observer—you!”
“This summer, many of you may have been rather shocked to see things ‘just happen’ around you that you were merely considering in your minds. For example, when you felt blocked and confused (often!), simply by moving your attention to something positive (anything really!) doorways opened….”
“As I’ve already noted, astrology is rarely as clear as it is right now. The struggle over human resources is intense (Pluto in Capricorn), while the human creative potential to move beyond limitation (Uranus in Aries) is unstoppable…”
“If you’ve found life murky and overwhelming this summer, you aren’t alone. So far, the trick to navigating this strange period is to scan each moment and each event for potentially positive things and to align your self with this flow….”
“Just remember to be grounded in your dream of a beautiful world that we are intentionally creating together during this long-awaited planetary awakening. “

From Willow’s Web Astrology:
“Female warrior Pallas Athene continues to be a major player in the Uranus-Pluto squares. This asteroid is on Uranus like a second skin as the planet cries out for women and the feminine to step it up, speak out, and exert themselves at the threshold of this new astrological era.”
“This feminine warrior asteroid is absolutely potent at this important time on the planet and will not be shuffled to the side. Pallas Athene was right up front in the proceedings, exactly conjunct Uranus in Aries and square Pluto in Capricorn, during the first of the seven Uranus-Pluto squares on June 24, 2012, and it has stayed there ever since.”
“This asteroid holds crucial position for women and for the feminine, in general. It simply won’t back down. Like a dog on a bone, it moves retrograde, step-for-step, in tight conjunction with Uranus into the second Uranus-Pluto square September 18/19.”
“…Our communications with others are taut, to say the least. People are wound tightly here, and things are simmering beneath the social interactions. Words are highly-charged and potentially incendiary with Mercury squaring volcanic Pluto and opposing unpredictably inflammatory Uranus and Pallas Athene.”
“Mercury in Libra does its best to keep things socially smooth and congenial - often the domain of women. Pallas Athene, working on the astrological Aquarian vibe in conjunction to Uranus, is fighting to break us out of stifling, control-based social roles, particularly for women. You see the tension of this opposition.”
“…With Saturn cementing our relational position in the last degrees of Libra, we have to maintain social standards here, but this is very tough to do when we feel like snarling Plutonic beasts with an overwhelming Uranian-Pallas Athenian urge to annihilate every social more in existence.”
“…The feminine perspective is particularly at the breaking point here. It’s put up with all it is humanly possible to put up with, and speaking up on inflammatory issues when necessary becomes just as important as maintaining social decorum – probably more so.”

Wow! Well here is what Anne Nordhaus-Bike and her ANB Communications Blog has to say about harmonizing with this energy:
 Balance harshness with caring, compassion…”
“The Sun’s placement in Virgo will give us the sharp eye for details and deep analytical skills needed to see clearly, while Uranus retrograde in Aries inspires us with courage to go within and face our truth and Pluto in Capricorn gives us the strength to make difficult, long-term changes built on integrity.”
“These signs can be harsh, however: Virgo’s ability to spot flaws can become relentless self-criticism and even chronic self-hatred, Aries’s swift action can be self-absorbed and heedless of having to consider others’ needs, and Capricorn’s persistence and ambition can become joyless workaholism and even cynical materialism.”
“To counter these tendencies, draw on emotions, intuition, and deep spiritual values to support holistic, balanced change…”
“Use Virgo’s sharp analysis to see all that’s gone wrong. Then ask yourself what you need to improve your situation…Then remember Virgo’s ideals and imagine how you might achieve them…”
“As you undergo this deep and healing process, may the hope of renewal remain in your heart, and may the social ideals seeded so long ago begin to flower at a higher, more caring level.”

From Nick Anthony Fiorenza and his Lunarplanner.com:
“Although this may be an intense time, it should be paradigm-shifting in a very progressive and expansive way as we will see toward the end of this authoring. The meanings of the words, ‘Revolution & Revelation,’ may take on an entirely new meaning….”
“Uranus, in its clear and evolved expression, brings the ability to spontaneously change and to create new frontiers in experience and consciousness. It is the true pioneer, uninhibited by convention and establishment (Saturn). Uranus inspires the expression of our unique individuality in radical confidence….”
“Pluto is a freeing and opening force; a pattern disrupter and deprogrammer. Pluto is independent, individual, and autonomous; an extremist, isolationist and loner; a revolutionist, and is non-accepting of limiting conditions.”
“For a younger immature soul, Pluto can express as a controlling arbiter, however Pluto will ultimately make one face their own controlling issues.”
“For an older mature soul, Pluto can be a valuable ally when worked with consciously, freeing us from antiquated behavioral patterns. Pluto’s chart placement can indicate where we need to let go or surrender programmed patterns from early childhood and from previous incarnations.”
“Pluto can bring up fears associated with survival, death and transformation; the fear to be alone, to let go, to release or to let die. Pluto brings attention to our attitude and issues we hold about authoritarian control and use of power, how we attempt to control and how we respond such control.”
“Pluto demands that we take responsibility for our entrapments in life and deal with the longer-term ramifications of our actions and life scenarios—and our karmic responsibility, extending beyond a mere lifetime. Pluto also demands that we address how we co-participate and cooperate with humankind in our daily lives from an all-embracing global perspective.”

Wonderful insigh from astrologer Pat Liles from The Power Path.com:
“It’s crunch time at the collective level….We’re in a revolutionary/evolutionary zone which all can sense, even though we cannot know the final outcome because we are creating it as we go along out of our thoughts, feelings, visions and actions!”
“Each one of these exact contacts of Uranus and Pluto acts as an intensifier and magnifier of this transpersonal energy that seeks to unlock our most disturbing, inner closeted energy (Pluto) and release and awaken us by giving us a reality jolt or a kick in the pants.”
“It’s collective energy, so every society on the planet has their own lessons to learn, but we all have these planets active in our personal charts as well – some more intensely than others. Our own personal breakthroughs and lessons contribute to the collective awakening more than we can calculate.”
“Personal awakening/evolution=Collective awakening/evolution….”
“We are being offered a huge opportunity to create in a new way, to imagine, think and manifest in one fell swoop! Uranus (sign of inspired genius) will help us to create with quantum field support, and Pluto (God of the Underworld) will help us empty the trash of outmoded emotional programs, thinking habits and beliefs that supported the constructs for the concrete reality that has lead us to the end of this particular time frame represented, let’s say, by the end of this Mayan calendar (or Kali Yuga, Age of Pisces, etc.).”
“We will no longer have to live solely in the world of ‘doing’. We can integrate our relationship to the divine and acknowledge our inner, receptive stillness of ‘being’.”
 “This month we will see two planets act as triggers to the Uranus/Pluto square activating opportunities for growth and resulting growing pains (especially in the lower chakras). Squares signal crisis and dynamic stress that forces action. On September 20, Mercury, the ruling planet of this Virgo New Moon cycle, will bring verbal/mental confrontations or show you just what needs pruning in your daily life.”
“Go for the challenge. You have everything to gain if you take the initiative and shake your life up even on the most mundane levels. Makes choices, eliminate and commit. The ripples outward will revitalize you.”
“Late in the month in conjunction with the Aries Full Moon, the Sun will move into position with the Uranus/Pluto square to bring its powerful, personal challenge to align our selves with the revolutionary/evolutionary energies of the times and test our willingness to ‘Let go and let God’. If you’re taking steps to awaken and bring conscious awareness to where you have fallen asleep or become unconsciously numb, then you are riding the edge of this dynamic time.”
 “The coming Full Moon (September 29) will very likely be a notably powerful time, so now is the window at New Moon to set your intention for what you want to create with this energy in your life.”

Lastly from Molly Hall and About.com:
“The potential here is to rediscover who we are, and awaken powers that have been suppressed or dormant. Pluto’s method is elimination, excavation, clearing out, and if the world seems covered in shadow, it’s rising to be faced, confronted, transformed.”
“As the old is cracked open, new fertile landscapes are created that weren’t there before. Raw energies are released, that are the fuel for the next move. A sense of mission comes from what’s been overcome, and this augurs a new chapter. There are many ways that Pluto and Uranus divinely work toward breaking through!”
“What’s been stuffed down and denied is spilling out. Much that was in shadow, is being purged out into the open. The dumpster of denial, corruption and shadowy agendas is full. The ugly truth can no longer be contained, especially about institutions, monopolies, unholy alliances, hierarchies of power and industry.”
“Seen with wise eyes, where nothing is “good or bad,” this is a golden opportunity. It’s time to find ways to clean it up, purify and reform. The intensity of the times activates a call, to play a role, in this great shift of the ages….”
“Pluto is ultimately about letting go, and accepting what is. It’s also about getting things moving and unstuck from routine, or cultural assumptions, by any means necessary. If a relationship has fallen apart, look at ways it frees you to explore your own true and wildly alive sense of destiny again. If you’ve lost your home or other material possessions, how does it lighten your load?”
“Pluto in Capricorn is challenging some to let go of who we think we are, in the eyes of society. If I don’t have this or that car, a certain size home, a college degree, who am I?”
“Breaking out of tired old conditioning, we experience our own unique inherent value. By being stripped of outer branding and stultifying influence, each of us taps the source within. We let go of what’s stunting our growth, and spread our wings. We become the phoenix rising out of the ashes.”
“… As these groundbreaking moments of Pluto crack us open, it lets to light in (to indirectly quote a famous poem). As we are broken open, we discover the will to really live, and the soul force that’s able to renew itself. We’re full of anticipation, even as things are “falling apart” around us.”
“The surprise gift is a new sense of the possible. And, a brand new sense of who you are. We might sense much “work” to do, integrating the shadow. And yet, Uranus in the foolhardy optimistic fire sign of Aries keeps us in good spirits.”
