The most fascinating part of being an archetypal astrologer is to watch how the planetary archetypes play out on the world stage. A major aspect that I have been writing about since 2010 is Uranus Square Pluto in effect until 2020. Uranus rules Aquarius and Pluto rules Scorpio.
On stage we have Donald Trump with Uranus conjunct the Sun and Opposite his moon. He is a double Uranus person and Hillary Clinton is a Scorpio with 3 major Pluto aspects. We are not sure of her birth time but one of the times some astrologers are using gives her Scorpio rising. So she may be a quadruple Pluto person!
The role of Uranus is revelation and in this case Trump is illuminating parts of the US shadow – racism, sexism, religious intolerance to name just a few. He has been “assigned” this job by the Gods. Uranus is the revealer --the planet that shakes everything up. Think of Uranus as the Trickster or the Jester.
The planet of the shadow is Pluto. In classical mythology Pluto sometimes wore the cap of invisibility. Hillary keeps things close to the vest, is a member of the Plutocracy and her purpose is to deal with the underworld for instance terrorism and war. Now enters another Uranian character - Julian Assange. He has Uranus square the Sun.
On Oct 16, we experienced a crises Full Moon, so named because it is close to the earth which makes it very powerful. But, also, this full moon was conjunct Uranus. Full Moons are in effect 4 days before and45 days after the Full Moon. So I could see this moon period sparking the Uranus archetype.
At this time we had a swarm of WikiLeaks dumps from Assange. Trump revealed these leaks in the debates and to his many follows. So I thought of those two in a baseball game, Assange throwing the pitch and Trump batting it out of the park. What fun.
This article isn’t about who is going to win the election. Uranus types may be fun to watch, but here is a hint --there is no more powerful planet than Pluto.
