On December 15, the 6th of 7 exact squares between slow-moving outer planets Pluto and Uranus brought us to the next phase in this time of transition and transformation. Since 2012, this planetary alignment has been bringing us the clear message that manifesting our vision of a sustainable world requires changes in the ways we do business.

December 15th brought us to another level of awareness, integration, and letting go. The energy of the square is heightened by the Uranus station (changing directions) to go direct on the exact day of the Winter Solstice and New Moon in Capricorn. Capricorn energy is serious, and it is time for us to get serious about what we want, and what we are going to do about it.

A pitfall of Capricorn energy is the potential to feel a sense of burden, shame, or unworthiness. So you may experience a temptation to spiral into feelings of failure, doubt, or overwhelm at the magnitude of the problems facing you and the world.

It is especially important to remember that the Capricorn “plan” that needs to be put in place, is not about achieving something impossible or overwhelming. In fact, it actually requires being in complete alignment with your own truth, your deepest sense of passion and purpose, and your authenticity.

By being yourself, you are living out the mandate for change. It is the tendency to STOP yourself from being yourself that is the problem.

On March 16, 2015, the final Pluto Uranus square – the “7th of 7” – brings a clear message to make choices and take actions that are in alignment with your own highest good. When you do so, you are more fully able to make a contribution to the good of the world around you. It’s time to share your true self with the world in joyful self-expression and sharing of your authentic gifts.

So, as 2014 comes to a close, get clear about what you have learned, who you have become, and what is more important to you now than ever before.

Reach deep inside and connect with the truth of who you are. Somewhere inside you is a “calling.” And the reason you have a “calling” is because the universe needs you to do it. When you heed this call, you also take care of your own deepest needs and contribute to your well-being on physical levels but also mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
