The March 4 Pisces New Moon marks the beginning of the end of the astrological new year, that officially starts with the Sun entering Aries on the Vernal Equinox. This New Moon features Mercury, Mars, Uranus, and the comet Chiron, all in Pisces- the last of the water signs, known for their emotional sensitivity and empathy. But then the energy takes on a distinctly different flavor when Uranus moves into Aries on March 11.
As Uranus relates to the impulse for revolution and to overturn the status quo, it seems that this dynamic urge is already in effect in the Middle East, and any place where people are feeling oppressed, restricted, or without basic human rights. The political tension in Wisconsin over Gov. Scott Walker's proposed legislation to weaken the economic rights of working class union members, is a classic case in point.
The epochal square between Uranus and Pluto is clearly resonating through the collective for the next 7 or more years, and the world will undoubtedly look very different when we emerge from this celestial alignment. Note that the last square between Uranus and Pluto occurred in the early 1930's, along with the depression and the rise of fascism. However, the current waxing square marks the 'crisis of action' phase of the 128 year Uranus-Pluto synodic cycle that began in the tumultuous 1960's with the three conjunctions(16-17 degrees Virgo).
The fateful Nodes of the Moon, that are actually eclipse points, move back into the Gemini-Sagittarius polarity and square Uranus(29th degree) around the Pisces New Moon. This aspect will definitely magnify the Uranian energy for freedom, change, and revolution. We should expect the unexpected.
The pace and momentum of events accelerate when the Sun enters Aries March 20, followed by Mars on April 1.
