The world will not end on Dec. 21, 2012 when the Mayan calendar long count runs out and a new 5125 year cycle begins. But Uranus and Pluto in square for the next 7 years will undoubtedly reflect massive change and revolutionary upheavals of all sorts- spiritual, financial, cultural, technological, and environmental. And one does not need to know about astrology to figure that out.
I will attempt some more exact predctions in the not too distant future regarding where and when the epic Uranus-Pluto world transit will likely manifest. Already, on July 9, 2011 when Uranus goes stationary-retrograde at 4 Aries 34, the planet of awakening and shocking upsets, pulls up just shy of a square with Pluto now at 5 Capricorn 54. As soon as Pluto entered Capricorn in Jan. 2008, the global financial system went into meltdown mode- and Uranus('uranium') entered fiery Aries only hours before the nuclear meltdown(s) at Fukushima, Japan. In fact, when Uranus crossed the celestial equator(the earth's equator extended into space) in the east on April 9, 2011 and began a new 84 year declination cycle- it was rising in dramatic fashion at Tokyo and Fukushima- yet another linkage between the world transits that inform the spirit of the times(zeitgeist), and world events of great magnitude.
The mass aspiration to realize our collective dreams, ideals, and utopian visions- or sink futher into denial and escapist behavior, is signified by the passage of Neptune through Pisces the Fishes from April 2011 until April 2025. We can not bank on the hope that this transit will save us from ourselves, but we might consider how raising the collective spiritual vibration could make a difference in dealing with the problems at hand.
Sustainability is the powerful mantra of human beings that wish to live and prosper along with Mother earth. We need to get with the program or perish from a fatal blend of hubris and ignorance.
The End Times, by Robert C. Koehler
“All the evidence shows that we are nearing the end of man’s tragic experiment in independence from God.”
Wow, I thought. They get it. And suddenly I felt a burst of solidarity with the Jehovah’s Witnesses. The words are from one of their tracts, which was given to me because I have this passion for talking about God — a wild glee, almost, for stepping up to The Big Serious and wrestling theology with the neighborhood proselytizers.
There are other ways to express the urgency of our situation, leaving God out of it. An eco-conscious soul might warn that the human species must reconnect with indigenous wisdom and the circle of life. But no matter. What strikes me is the growing recognition, in so many quarters, of the unsustainability of our global culture and the need for, and inevitability of, profound change.
Indeed, it’s more than mere “recognition” — it’s a primal disorientation. The culture of moneyed interests, war and techno-diversion, which is global in scope, is killing us at the same time that its media apologists, and the anonymous experts and authorities they quote, reassure us that everything is fine and under control."
