Uranus Square Pluto – Exact Dates 2012-2015

Transit Watch ElsaElsa.comUranus in Aries will square Pluto in Capricorn (exact), seven times between now and the end of March, 2015. Most astrologers agree this will be a tumultuous time of violent upheaval.

When Uranus is involved things happen unexpectedly. With Uranus in Aries, the unexpected comes quickly and when you combine this energy in hard aspect to Pluto which rules death and devastation, I’d say that war is almost a given as are natural disasters. As to where and when these things will take place – with Uranus involved, there is no telling. It’s unpredictable, right? So if you run into some know-it-all making predictions, remember to smirk.

As for dealing well with this energy, I am sure to write about it ad nauseum the way I do everything else but in a nutshell, you want to hone your instincts and be ready to act quickly.

Uranus square Pluto June 24 2012 – 8 degrees
Uranus square Pluto September 19 2012 – 6 degrees
Uranus square Pluto May 21 2013 – 11 degrees
Uranus square Pluto November 1 2013 – 9 degrees
Uranus square Pluto April 21 2014 – 13 degrees
Uranus square Pluto December 15 2014 – 12 degrees
Uranus square Pluto March 17 2015 – 15 degrees

The degrees notes above are in the Cardinal signs so if you have personal planets or angles of your chart near these degrees, you’re pretty much guaranteed to be very personally affected.

On the upside, this combination can bring fast healing. A person can also gain power in a blink of an eye. Just get used to the idea of deep change that seems to occur in the blink of an eye.

Uranus Square Pluto – Exact Dates 2012-2015 — 69 Comments

  1. Those last three squares — well, if nothing important happens, my chart is just WRONG — really really wrong, like “I don’t know my birth date” wrong.

    April 21, 2014 has a cardinal grand cross that also involves Mars at 14 Libra and Jupiter at 13 Cancer. And for funsies, Saturn (which will hit my Uranus) will be part of a weak, dissipating kite in water. I do NOT like this transit at all for my mother (8th house Libra moon) or my brother (his angles), or my father (Saturn conjuncts an angle conjunct natal Chiron).

    December 14, 2014 has the North Node at 16 Libra as part of a weak t-square.

    Are your family’s cardinal planets past those degrees? Because those are WICKED transits.

  2. yes, my SR in late 2014 – I’m aiming for full throttle up power! It doesn’t hit my chart directly – except that my birthday is near by. Full power, baby!

  3. Uranus and Pluto smells trouble for me. I’m itching to do something really bad. But Pluto is saying, be good, be very good or I’ll make you pay. I ask how much?, no it’s free, Hell to Hell is FREE!!!

  4. Capricorn in Pluto, they discovered he was hiding money in another acct. What was he thinking when he did this? Is this a set up. I would to think he would hide in the Cayman Islands.

    Pluto transit to his natal sun. Yeah baby

  5. I was very glad to see this line:”On the upside, this combination can bring fast healing”. Because I had noted that it would hit first my natal then my progressed jupiter in cap and Chiron in Aries. Effecting my natal merc/jup/pluto tsquare. And the reaction point of my natal sun/mars/Uranus yod which has chiron in the reaction point in Aries. My career focus is healing(chiron) and I will make a point of believing(sun in Pisces) i can use(mars in Taurus) the energy(Uranus) this way.

    Does this seem feasible?

  6. What orb do you consider to be ‘near’ these degrees?
    My kids are Aries Suns and Libra Sun with lots of other significant Cardinal stuff in all their charts. My younger son has his Sun at 11° Libra and the rest of his cardinal stuff at early or late degrees. My daughter has her Sun at 13° Aries, Uranus at 13° Capricorn and Neptune at 16°Capricorn with the rest at early or late degrees. My older son has 19° Aries Mars and the rest of his cardinal stuff at early or late degrees.
    My own cardinal stuff is at late degrees (26 Cap Moon and 29 Aries ASC)

  7. ohhhhh my gosh.

    a very dear friend has his sun, venus and mars in cancer from 7 to 13. I was already concerned about the pluto opposition to those points, but throwing in uranus just seems cruel. The poor guy!

    I have my saturn at 12 aries, and my asc/desc at 15 libra/aries, so this will sneak up on me eventually too.

    I’m going to try to forget about it in the meantime. Neptune, take me away!

  8. “Oh well. I didn’t want a boring life anyway.”


    This’ll be my first grand cross in a SR. Most of the time I end up with a weird stellium or a “not much going on this year” SR…

  9. *sigh*

    7 degree Cappy Sun here……
    Just recovering from that scorch and burn number Pluto did to my angle. Holding on to my sense of humor for dear life right about now. I will be that lady in the corner with that painful “grin and bear it” expression on her face until 2016. This transit says spontaneous combustion if I ever saw one.

  10. I love having so many fixed sign planets. I can watch all the “cardinal” people panicking, yet I don’t get affected by it (uranus square pluto).

  11. Not sure about the war idea. If we look at the last time uranus was square pluto (early 30s) the big war we are thinking about wasn’t on … but Herr H. was definitely on the rise, the stock market was in the tank.

    And what about the square before that. 1870s? War in Europe: perhaps could be considered the start of the two world war cycle. Hmmm. Any thoughts on the historical context?

    • Zen…..Love the reference to history. 1870 and 1930 were crash, panic, depression, with a side dish of war. I’ll have to let an astrologer take it from there.

  12. Well….my Mars and juparw at 18&19 Aries 8th….plutois transiting late 5th….these are actually trineing and sextiling my sun and moon. Conjunctions tomars & Jul though. Shouldi worry?? Myfamily members have sunand moon being conjunct and opposed.. oh my Saturn is opposed incancer.

  13. My words are all jacked! lol I was typing on my stupid touch screen… stupid touch screen.**conjunct to Mars and Jup** is what I meant. 🙂

  14. Not sure if this will effect any of my chart or not (probably will -figures) but I am none a stranger of the deep change. I was kind of hoping it was over with though. I could go for an unexpected sudden job offer – a really good one or how about prince charming.

    Is there anyway that we could have some positive transits from either of these?

  15. Crap I have Uranus in Libra at 3 degrees 11 house. I have Chiron in Aries at 5 – but if it has to be personal planets maybe I am safe?

    Uranus opposition Uranus – that is normal for midlife transit changes, right? Already dealing with that.

    Also won’t the Pluto in Capricorn square my Uranus in Libra too? Bleech. Well, I guess it must already be doing that – but it is past it though.

  16. Tremble, Quiver, ouch
    Uranus square Pluto December 15 2014 – 12 degrees
    Uranus square Pluto March 17 2015 – 15 degrees

    Mars in Libra – 12 degrees
    Asc in Capricorn – 17 degrees

    I have taken a hit these past couple of years, Saturn in Libra has been running amok. It is squaring my sun (29 Cancer) till Oct…
    It conj my Mars and squ my Asc. last year…it was aweful, albeit I lost a lot of my baby[ies] weight

    I keep getting hit…
    Lucky my guts are made of steel…although it is taking its toll on me

  17. Venus in Aries at 9, but the rest of my personals are safe. After this Saturn transit, I agree, it’d certainly be nice to find a Price Charming. 🙂

    Also, just found out that a friend with Venus in Aries at 8 intends to marry in Nov. *worried*

  18. Holy Moley, I have Uranus(virgo 20º) conjunct Pluto (virgo18º) -both in 6th house and Mars in Libra 7th house ! Should I be worried???

  19. Hi Elsa

    We have 7 exact coming Uranus Pluto squares.

    Which one will be the most “violatile” or the most hard aspect against the US chart in those years?

    Thanks a lot Elsa

  20. Don’t like at all!
    My son has natal Saturn at 8 Cancer in 4th House and I have natal Jupiter at 5 Capricorn in 4th House also…

  21. The second contact Of Pluto and Uranus in September will hit my natal Pluto at 6 degrees in the 11th house. Plus, my progressed Midheaven is currently at 3 degrees Libra. Any insights into what I might expect?

  22. “Nick

    I love having so many fixed sign planets. I can watch all the “cardinal” people panicking, yet I don’t get affected by it (uranus square pluto).”


    (I’m a cardinal one).. LOL

  23. I seem ok until the next couple of years. This will hit hy Vertex and Venus on November 13, 2012, two days before my birthday, which will include my solar return : / and December 14, 2014. These will include my 2nd and 8th house. I am going to mark my calendars and watch as these dates approach. I pass the May 21st with some struggle and grief. But I did here from someone I had not expected to due to Venus being in retro and all that.

  24. 10th house Aries; 6th house Pluto. Something’s gotta give! Looking forward to it too, however some trepidation most certainly. Happy Summer Solstice Everyone!

  25. June 24, broke up with my ex, his behavior was quite violent. I was in shock! It happened so fast while we were out vending. I felt threaten and could no longer be in his presence. Got home, he packed his shit called his brother and three other friends to help him move. It was embarrassing. Did not see it coming but Uranus squaring pluto did.

    The cause of the argument was not worth what happened, but I understand it happened for a reason to deal with subconscious issues. I have some fear right in the pit of my stomach where my will power sits- solar plexus.

  26. 3days before the exact square between Uranus and Pluto something extraordinary happen in my country…an ex prime minister accused of coruption was convicted to 2 years of jail, it is the first time after 20 years that justice is convicting a public figure without fear. And second after he heard the that he has to do 2 yeas in jail the ex. primi minister tried to kill himself with a gun but he was saved by the policeman who came to take him to jail. Everything came as a shock …as this square acts…

  27. Activating my cardinal angles. My Asc and MC are not going to be left alone, Asc till 2015 anyway. And my MC is going to be going for a while. 9 months after that its saturn return… I’ve got work to do! Glad to be prepared.

  28. Interesting dates to watch: Dec 2014 – Jan 2015, when the nodes of the moon make contact w/Uranus/Pluto degree points. Jan 2015 — intesting Mars/Neptune conjunction. Oct 2014, a lunar eclipse @ 15*Aries could have lasting results into the Dec/Jan timeframe since 15* can be as important as the 0* world points.

  29. “Uranus square Pluto March 17 2015 – 15 degrees”

    Oh for FUCK sake hahaha oh well atleast its not til 2015

  30. Is this pretty much the same as the transit I’m having now..uranus square mars?..havnt had anything happen lately (knocking on wood) and I’m soo laid back, not the antsy type at all…hoping this transit doesnt just wipe me out ..like an anvil falling out of the sky!

  31. omg i have 17 cap ascendent and 27 libra sun. Will i be affected ????. I was hugely affected during aug 2011 and sep 2009. Was this due to cardinal grand cross.that aug 18 2011 was worst night mare of my life. God have mercy upon me :((

  32. thank you elsa :). May i know will uranus be squaring pluto around 27degree.if so when will it be squaring.o have libra sun 27 degrees and am worried

  33. What if the midpoint of these two planets lands on your natal Venus that happens to be wrapped up in some major dances with other planets in your chart?!! Honestly, I was hoping to be a bystander for these events however shit keeps happening to me around the squaring off of these two planets. Tonight I had a hunch to check the midpoints ….yikes!!!! …there is was, my Venus in the 7th was getting attacked! That poor girl is square Neptune so she doesn’t do well with this kind of beating. I need to see a good romantic comedy to escape from this insanity. 🙂

  34. I would like to emphasize a feature of the Uranus-Pluto square which seems to me ignored by most astrologers. During 2012 – 2015 Pluto is hugely supported by other configurations while Uranus is not, such as:

    – March 2012 Grand Trine in Earth with Pluto at 9 Capricorn, Mars at 9 Virgo, Jupiter-Venus-Black Moon conjunct at 9 Taurus

    – Pluto is in sextile with Saturn for almost a year 2012 – 2013 (and also in mutual reception 2012 – 2015)

    – Pluto receives a sextile from Chiron for almost 2 years (2012 – 2014)

    – A long with 3 exact alignments mini trine (Pluto-Saturn-Chiron at 9-12 Capricorn – Scorpio – Pisces)

    – Although a bit wide, Pluto receives a sextile from Neputune for most of this time

    – Pluto will be sextiled be the North Node in Scorpio in the autumn of 2013

    – Uranus, on the other hand, will not receive during these years not any sextile or trine or conjunction from the big planets exept for the fast-moving personal planets which will transit Pluto too

  35. Natal sun in 10 degrees Taurus. This is a hellish aspect for me!

    2012 until now has been the most disaster-ridden time for me in my entire life. I got temporarily disabled from Feb 2012 – July 2012 (unable to work). Then came a freak accident in the summer of 2012. Then both my father and mother diagnosed with cancer during that time period (father’s was terminal and he died). Then husband diagnosed in fall of 2012 with extremely rare and very debilitating (and life-threatening) autoimmune disease followed by 2 brutal major surgeries in 2013. 2012 was also the year that my fellow worker died suddenly. Then best friend died around the same time as my father. My only other close family member became suddenly estranged. Tiny respite of 3 weeks in July of 2013 (the only one). Now I’ve got 2 major surgeries coming up in Sept (possible cancer). We go to another funeral for my husband’s friend in 5 days. I am young. For a happy-go-lucky camper most of my life, I go around with a terrible sense of dread, morose and with a lump in my throat. I am so sad. Without a war, everyone I’m close to is sick or dying!

    Any hope at all? What are my prospects?

  36. Sorry to see a fellow taurean suffering like that. Lucky me my sun is at the end of the sign cause right now we’re going exact on Hallowe’een when I had my breast cancer opt 1995 which went pretty well. I’m still intact mostly.
    This year my long term friend had a heart attack and at 51 is on medications and uneasy. But otherwise we’re lucky SO FAR. It was interesting that my inner voice laments to my ancestral family member long gone on my inability to fulfill our unspoken agreement. German, so I hope it wasn’t over who owns the earth!! Really he was a furniture artist and brick layer, a pisces and quiet as a mouse with his pipe. Stinky pipe. Loveable man. Fisher.
    So that’s my contributions. These agreements buried that we can live our whole lives trying to fulfill – I’m 69.
    Just passing a saturn oppose venus which gets heavy and before that mercury and criticism flew!! But I know who I am.

  37. about to be whacked, maybe ! mercury at 17 cancer. uranus semi sextile my Jupiter for now, latter in Pisces so feeling it emotionally. uranus transiting my 5th, well i know I’m meant to be in shall we say an eccentric relationship. and one’s on the horizon! good luck to all, be philosophical. Sagittarius rising has to say that, lol.
