Uranus-Pluto Retriggered: Jul 28-Aug 3 2014 Astrology Forecast


Mercury-Uranus-Pluto T-square = brainstorm!

The decade-long Uranus-Pluto square gets retriggered again this week as T-squares involving both Venus and Mercury peak. Embrace revolutionary transformation of relationships, creativity, thought and more!

Other “skylights” include a healing Grand Trine, an intense Mars-Jupiter square, and an edgy Mars-Chiron sesquiquadrate.

7/28 (Mon)

Proactively embracing the ways in which your relationships can change for the better is a great way to work with a Venus-Pluto opposition. This can also add sizzle to sacred sexuality, empower creativity and stimulate financial opportunity. With Venus in Cancer, what positive change can you bring to your family interactions?

This opposition is part of a Venus-Uranus-Pluto T-square that peaks on 7/30.

7/29 (Tue)

It may just be a minor hard aspect, but a Mars-Chiron sesquiquadrate can trigger wounding nonetheless. If you point a finger at the catalyst, be sure to also notice the three fingers pointing back at you! What can you do to heal the deeper wound within you that this event triggered? (Here’s a healing invocation that may help.)

7/30 (Wed)

A strong desire for escape — whether through substances or distracting activities — can arise under a Sun-Neptune quincunx. Martyrdom and aimlessness are other possible challenges.

To harness this energy for good, connect with the profound bliss that only Spirit can provide. (My Core Invocation may help you.) And with the Sun in creative Leo, be sure to manifest your creative inspirations!

The asteroid goddess Vesta transits Scorpio today thru 10/6. In general, Vesta represents sacred service to a greater cause. In Scorpio, one of her juicier meanings — sacred sexuality — is emphasized, providing extra support for explorations in this area.

T-square: Venus-Uranus-Pluto

How much nurturing are you receiving in your relationships, especially with your family members? Revolutionary transformation in how you relate, and with whom, is supported by a Cancerian Venus-Uranus-Pluto T-square.

Paradigm shifts in your creativity and finances are also supported by this aspect pattern, which started on 7/26, peaks today and ends on 8/3.

Thor’s Hammer: Mars-Jupiter-Chiron

Healing and mentoring receive significant support as a Thor’s Hammer aspect pattern that started on 7/24 peaks today, wrapping up on 8/4. With energizing Mars and Jupiter focusing their energies on wounded healer Chiron, don’t be surprised if unresolved emotional and psychological issues get triggered. But remember that every triggering is also a healing opportunity!

7/31 (Thu)

Mercury transits Leo thru 8/15. This supports public speaking, acting, singing, and all flavors of the performance arts. Creative writing and getting your ideas into the spotlight is also supported.

8/1 (Fri)

The theme of relationship intensity that started with Monday’s Venus-Pluto opposition continues today as Venus squares Uranus. Plutonian change can be slow, but Uranus can strike like a lightning bolt! Let your intuitive flashes guide you in making any revolutionary changes that serve highest good in your relationships, creativity and finances.

This square is part of a Venus-Uranus-Pluto T-square that peaked on Wednesday.

With all the stress Venus is under from Pluto and Uranus, it’s good to know that other planets are offering their assistance. A Venus-Saturn trine offers foundational support to Venus’ core meanings (relationship, creativity and money). And a Venus-Chiron trine opens the door to healing and mentoring.

The basic meaning of a Mars-Jupiter square is the amplification of sexuality, leadership, warrior spirit and innovation. With Mars in Scorpio, sacred sexuality, shared resources, occult activities and investigation are also fired up.

The Venus-Saturn-Chiron Grand Trine that started on 7/25 peaks today and ends on 8/7. This Grand Trine’s healing energies focus into interpersonal relationships, creativity and finances. With Venus in Cancer, all of this can be productively focused into family matters.

8/2 (Sat)

All the meanings of Mercury in Leo in Thursday’s forecast are powerfully amplified by Mercury’s conjunction to Jupiter today. Thought and speech can be powerfully energized. But be careful not to talk someone’s ear off under this loquacious energy!

A square between Leonine Mercury and Scorpionic Mars also fires up the desire to learn and share information. But it can also trigger verbal conflict. This aspect loves to tell transformative truths with dramatic elocution. But be sure to also consider the feelings of those who are receiving your message.

8/3 (Sun)

Any tendencies you have toward domineering behavior can be exacerbated with the Leonine Sun quincunx Pluto. But you can also choose to have this aspect support the transformation of your ego into the increasingly compliant tool of Spirit.

Void-of-Course Moons

It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during void-of-course Moons. “Business as usual” is the optimal strategy. Void-of-course Moons occur when the Moon has made her last major Ptolemaic aspect, but has not yet moved into her next sign.

  • 7/27, 8:38 pm – 7/28, 11:38 pm (Virgo)
  • 7/31, 10:48 am – 12:11 pm (Libra)
  • 8/1, 10:58 pm – 8/2, 10:58 pm (Scorpio)

Whatever your Sun Sign, Benjamin’s forecasts can help you make the best use of the current astrological energies.

All dates and times are in the U.S. eastern time zone. Events are most powerful on the dates listed, but their influence will be active for at least several days before and after.

Everyone is affected by these global transits. However, you will be most powerfully impacted when moving planets activate sensitive points in your natal chart.
