Uranus is called the electric planet. He rules sudden changes and shocking situations. Uranus is also the rebel, and he never follows the crowd. Uranus is the genius, and he loves science. Pluto, on the other hand, is deep and sensuous. Pluto rules death and rebirth, and Pluto will destroy things that are no longer useful.
Uranus and Pluto are very slow outer planets and do not aspect one another often. They usually bring times of social upheaval. The last time they were square was in the 1930's during the Great Depression. Uranus was conjunct Pluto from 1965 - 67 during some of the most intense years of the Vietnam war. And now, shortly past the turn of the century we are under the shadow of another Uranus-Pluto square. Because they both spend many months every year in retrograde, they have been coming to a square and then moving away from one another since June 2011. The upcoming square, from November 4th through April 25th, is actually the 6th phase and the last time they will come to an exact square.
When these two planets are afflicting one another, Pluto will add power to Uranus' desire to make changes. Pluto wants to destroy and eliminate, and Uranus will add the desire to do it quickly. Fanatics may find themselves feeling refueled under this aspect, and disturbances in our communities and in our homes are likely. Pluto rules deep emotions, so there could be some very deep, personal, emotional issues bringing heartbreak and strife.
Conflicts on a larger scale between corporations and countries are likely to escalate. Also, because Uranus is the scientist, high tech crimes will be more likely. There could be more internet security leaks, but there could also be more governmental leaks and exposure of corruption. Pluto rules criminals, and Uranus will bring them to light.
Uranus will be in retrograde, and Pluto will be moving direct when the square begins, so it won't take long for them to come to an exact square, about 5 weeks, on December 15th. (Astrologers allow for a 2 degree orb - plus or minus 2 degrees - when calculating an aspect between transiting planets.)
Because Uranus will be in retrograde, he will continue moving backward away from Pluto, and Pluto will continue moving forward. But, they won't get more than 2 degrees apart, before Uranus turns direct. It will take Uranus some time to catch up to Pluto again after he turns direct, and they won't come to their second exact square until March 17th, 2015. Therefore, a few weeks before and after December 15th, and a few weeks before and after March 17th will be the most intense times of this square.
The last time these two were at an exact square was back in April, 2014. You may want to think back to that time and remember what issues you were dealing with. It is likely that those issues will resurface during our upcoming square. Also, some of the events related to the Uranus-Pluto square could occur even earlier or later than when the planets are within their 2 degree orb. And, one more thing, Pluto will be in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries, so cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn may have to deal with more personal issues than the rest of us.
