Even when the Uranus/Pluto waxing square isn’t exact, it’s still an extremely powerful alignment, and we can feel its impact in a lot of markets as well as in global politics, behind-the-scenes economic actions, and increased tension in personal relationships.
That’s what’s happening this week, with the transiting Sun “translating” the Uranus/Pluto square. That process started late Monday evening, when the Sun formed an exact opposition to Pluto. It culminates on July 4, with the Sun in a precise square with Uranus. This reactivates and amplifies the power of the Uranus/Pluto square, and also creates and extra-stressful T-square pattern between the three heavenly bodies, adding even more tension to the mix.
That extraordinary Uranus/Pluto energy brings our our conflicts to the surface, and all too often manages to convince us that we are in exceptional, “do or die” situations that absolutely require us to act on the basis of immutable principles.
If the context for that kind of drama is a geopolitical showdown or an individual argument, the consequences of excessive stubbornness or precipitous action can be devastating, and sometimes even fatal. Even in the markets, where only our money is at risk, we can still get some pretty unpleasant results if we aren’t careful.
So what’s the best strategy for dealing with this week’s solar translation of the Uranus/Pluto waxing square?
We’ll certainly need to be on the lookout for major disruptions internationally, with a high potential for big conflicts challenging governments around the globe. On a more personal level, we’ll need to be careful to side-step petty arguments that could escalate into major fights.
And there are particular strategies to keep in mind for effective astro-trading as well.
That’s what I discussed with Michael Yorba when he interviewed me on his Traders Network radio show on Monday.
