The world-changing square between Uranus and Pluto in Cardinal signs lasts from June of 2012 to March of 2015, and this month its effects are intensified by the addition of Jupiter and Mars, forming a Cardinal Grand Cross (sometimes called a Grand Square) in the sky. This post is part of a multi-post thread exploring its meanings. Missed the beginning of this thread? Start here.
A true “clash of the titans” is happening in the Dreamscape. The Great Edifice is crumbling (see parts one, two and three of this thread) and Pluto has grappling hooks and rope attached to it. Uranus arrives in a burst of Aries fire.
Pluto: How dare you interrupt me? I was busy bringing down the Great Edifice!
Uranus: I won’t allow you to unveil corruption unless it benefits the people. We can work together only if what we do results in a more liberated populace.
Uranus throws a line up and grapples on from a different angle.
Pluto: Are you telling me that you’re going to try and keep this structure up while I am trying to bring it down?
Uranus: I am the rebel, after all.
Pluto: I need to weed out the corruption in the system.
He digs in his heels and begins pulling. The structure starts to topple.
Uranus: Corruption does need to end, but I don’t agree with all your methods or your agenda.
He begins pulling too. The structure rights itself. Jupiter suddenly appears, in a burst of water like a water balloon exploding.
Jupiter: Hi, everybody!
Pluto (grumpily): Why do you always act as if we’ll naturally be glad to see you?
Uranus: And who invited you to the party anyway?
Jupiter: I don’t need an invitation. I’ve stepped in to play the part of the Good Fairy and soften the blow for some people during the big changes you are causing.
Jupiter has brought more rope and a grappling hook of his own.
Jupiter: This Edifice may fall, but it doesn’t have to crush people.
Pluto: Are you saying your transits are always good? Because that’s not what I heard.
Jupiter: Well, strictly speaking, not exactly. . .
Uranus: Always the exaggerator!
Jupiter: Sometimes what I do is magnify whatever’s already happening.
Uranus: By magnify, do you mean “blow it up?” Because I’m in Aries, and I love explosives!
Pluto: You are such a pyromaniac when you’re in Aries.
Jupiter: I’ve invited a friend who can help us get into agreement about what we’re doing here. He’s an amazing negotiator.
Mars appears, with his own grappling hook in tow. He is dressed in a tuxedo, with immaculate hair and . . . white gloves.
Pluto (sarcastically): Well aren’t YOU looking dapper!
Mars: Sometimes proper manners and a well-turned phrase are all the offense you need in order to win the day.
Jupiter: Are you going to kill us with kindness, just because you’re in Libra?
Mars: Only if I have to. It’s my firm belief that we can find common ground and negotiate an agreement that’s good for everybody. And I won’t stand for less.
While talking, Mars has attached his grappling hook to the Edifice and taken up his position opposite Uranus, while Jupiter stands at the fourth wall, opposite Pluto.
Mars: Now Pluto and Uranus—you don’t easily agree, do you?
Uranus: That’s an understatement!
Pluto: True. But when we do agree, things change rapidly.
Uranus: No doubt.
Mars: But you both want evil rooted out and replaced by good, isn’t that so?
Pluto: Yes, of course.
Mars: Pluto, you’d like to air the dirty laundry, yes?
Pluto: That is my area of expertise.
Mars: Go ahead and do that, because Uranus can help by facilitating some truth-telling on the internet.
Uranus: I rule the internet and I’m in Aries, so that’s a no-brainer. Ok, I can line up with that.
Pluto: I’ve already found the weaknesses in this structure, the fault-lines where the corruption is leaking out—
Uranus: —And I’ve placed explosives in the cracks and we’ve detonated some.
Mars: Then you’re well on your way. Jupiter, how about if you put out some safety nets to catch the people who are sincerely well-intended?
Jupiter: —You mean the casualties caught in the crossfire, the innocents?
Mars: Yes exactly. They need to be protected.
Jupiter: And they need to be rewarded for using their intuition and getting out of a failing situation in time to save themselves.
Jupiter waves his hand and an elaborate structure of nets and inflatable landing pads appears around the Edifice. He then reassumes his station at his side of the Edifice, with his rope in hand.
Mars: Then I’ll just get in position here at my side, with my rope and grapple. (He does so.) I’m going to trigger a lot of angry conversations among people involved in this. Some people are going to have to wake up. Others will need to back down. I’m going to fight for peace and equality.
Pluto: All right then, everyone’s in position?
They all nod.
Pluto: Here we go!
As each deity pulls, the Edifice begins to crumble and break apart. Its bright-red interior glows through cracks in its deep, glossy black exterior. Inside, the faces of human beings can be seen. Windows in the surface of the Edifice open and people begin jumping out of them. Some land safely in Jupiter’s nets or on his inflatable pads. Others hit the ground with a splat and die instantly. Each person that lands safely is greeted by Jupiter.
Jupiter: Congratulations, you used your intuition. You’re safe now.
A small, dazed group of Human Beings is gathering off to the side of the Great Edifice, which is now not so great. What will be their fate? Watch for the next post in this series to find out.
