Uranus square Pluto started its series of seven squares back in June 2012. By now we have a good idea of its energy and it is certainly making itself felt. It does feel like a paradigm shift is happening but in the great scheme of things we are only at the beginning. The cycles of Uranus and Pluto are extremely long if we consider their whole cycle, which means a period of approximately 100 years from conjunction to conjunction. It will work like a generational lunar cycle. The seeding moment for this current cycle then was the Uranus conjunction Pluto of 1965/66.
It is actually much more useful to look back at what was started in 1965/66 as opposed to comparing this current waxing square to the waning Uranus square Pluto of 1932/34. (Though I grant you that they are not totally unrelated). Of course, both squares are points of crisis, but there is a difference between the two. This waxing square; “Here the courage to meet crises of action and encounters with the tyranny of the old, leads to an active and decisive break with the past. Yet one often does not realize the full magnitude and implication of such moments until their time has passed.” ~ Cyber World Khaldea.
Dominators & Dictators
The rise of dictators and the great depression that occurred at the waning square of 1932 –1934 came about as a result of seeds sown in 1850 -1851. As the cycle progresses we see great famines in the east, while the industrial age is booming in the west. The contrast is quite stunning by the time of the waxing square in 1876 -1878. So we are at this waxing square point again right now. There may be a financial collapse and job losses, but this is NOTHING compared with millions of people who starved to death in India and China in the late 1800’s.
We are talking 40 million deaths here!!! This really puts it in perspective, doesn’t it? I think this current waxing square phase is crucial in preventing a devastating nuclear World War III later on. This war would probably occur (If we follow the same cycle) just after the waning square of 2073 – 2074. My thoughts are that what was started in the 1960’s will not take us to the same gruesome end of the last cycle. But we have to be careful that we don’t get complacent either. There may not be the need for physical war if the war for our minds is already won. Some of us were physically enslaved in the last cycle, now we have to free ourselves from the chains we put on ourselves.

Uranus square Pluto Waning 1932/34 ~ Aries 3/Cancer 3
Soviet famine (Millions die), Great Depression. 14 Million unemployed in the US. FBI created. Rise of dictatorship in Europe, Hitler comes to power. “Brave New World” published.

At the end of the last Uranus/Pluto cycle we get the ultimate in dominator Pluto shadow energy in the shape of the Nazi party. Hitler himself also had Uranus rising, making him an ideal projection. At the end of a cycle you can often see the seeds of the next. In the list you can see more insidious ways of domination emerging, TV, sugar, fear…(Neutron bomb). Some of “Brave New World” could be happening now. Everyone in the book takes “Soma”. One could say that smartphones are the new “soma” where you are never alone due to all-pervasive social networking notifications! Soma is a;
“State-produced drug, as a self-medicating comfort mechanism in the face of stress or discomfort, thereby eliminates the need for religion or other personal allegiances outside or beyond the World State…..Spending time alone is considered an outrageous waste of time and money, and wanting to be an individual is horrifying. Conditioning trains people to consume and never to enjoy being alone” ~ Wiki
