Starting in 2011 and continuing for the next six years there is a significant and chaos producing astrological pattern involving two malefic planets, Uranus and Pluto, which are creating dramatic changes throughout the world. They will be forming a series of squares or 90 degree angles during this time. Squares always produce tension and are archetypes in conflict. These tension producing aspects can be characterized by global social upheaval, worldwide environmental disasters and even global economic collapse. read more

In order to keep a finger on the pulse of world events, astrologers watch for significant changes in planetary activity.

On December 23, 2014, Saturn left the sign of Scorpio and moved into Sagittarius, where it remains, except for a brief retrograde back into Scorpio from mid June to mid September, until December 19, 2017.

Jupiter represents expansion, optimism, growth, generosity, joy, good fortune, and abundance. Every year, benefic Jupiter changes signs bringing us new opportunities to expand. However, Jupiter is the most mysterious of planets. It is the planet of good luck but where and how the blessings may manifest is just a guess. What Jupiter expands depends on what connections are made globally and in ones own chart.
February 2011 - February 2019
Chiron, the celestial body known as The Wounded Healer, whose mission is to support the greater good, will join Neptune in Pisces from February 8, 2011 through February 18, 2019. Religion falls under the rule of Pisces, and the Middle East crisis will come under greater international focus. Muslims versus Jews? Catholics versus Protestants? This senseless conflict has been passing as religion for far too long a time.
