This week, the movement of Mars begins a new phase of astrological history. Here is an idea to work with, if you strive to understand astrology. In every era, there are slow-moving patterns of planets that take a long time to form, and hold their positions for years, and sometimes for many years. Then there […]
Uranus is now in the discovery degree of Chiron, 4 Taurus, with the Sabian symbol, “The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.” (That is the source of “Rainbow bridge between the inner and outer planets,” used in the title of an early book on Chiron).

That has an edgy feeling, and it may also serve as a release point of the Sun passing through the Saturn-Pluto-Eris square configuration on the lunar nodes.
We are now in a new era of astrology: the Pluto-Eris square. Maybe you’ve been following along. There was the Uranus-Pluto series of squares in the 2011-2012 era; there was the Uranus-Eris conjunction of 2016-2017; and now, the torch has been passed to Pluto square Eris — the rarest of all of these combinations.
