2014 and Beyond

(Editor’s note: Astrologers from the old school will remember the enormous addition to our studies encountered in 1973 with the appearance of The Astrologer’s Handbook, by Frances Sakoian and Louis Acker. The book — and others that followed — are true and beloved classics. Reprinted in 1989, The Astrologer’s Handbook is considered one of the very best introductions to serious astrology ever published.

I was delighted to be directed to Louis Acker’s current work by a student of his. This is an edited section of an article that appeared on his web site on March 3, 2014. TMA will include further sections of the original article in this blog in coming weeks.)

As of January 2014, we are approximately halfway through the five-year Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn transit. This dramatic cardinal sign square is the dominating outer-planet aspect between 2011 and 2016. There will be seven exact Uranus-Pluto squares. The fourth exact Uranus-Pluto square took place on November 1, 2013.

The fifth one will be on April 22, 2014, at 13°34’ of Aries and Capricorn. This fifth exact Uranus-Pluto square is part of the exact 13° cardinal grand cross that includes Mars in Libra and Jupiter in Cancer.

The sixth exact Uranus-Pluto square is at 12°35’ of Aries and Capricorn on December 15, 2014. It is activated by Venus in Capricorn conjunct Pluto and square Uranus from December 20th through 23rd. This will involve aberrant sexual perversions in high places. Transiting Mercury in Capricorn also is conjunct Pluto and square Uranus on December 24, 2014. Leaked information from within the establishment — probably involving a whistleblower — will become a shocking major news story.

The seventh and last Uranus-Pluto square will be March 17, 2015. Mars in Aries conjunct Uranus and square Pluto between March 8 and 15, 2015 activates this last Uranus-Pluto square. This is an explosive, highly dangerous combination that could precipitate assassinations, riots, revolution, war, bombings, and industrial accidents.

For a swath of time from mid January through July of 2014, Uranus square Pluto is continuously activated, triggered by other planets transiting cardinal signs, thus forming t-squares and grand squares with Uranus and Pluto. This is largely because Mars in Libra and Jupiter in Cancer both have stations. while turning from retrograde to direct, that are in square or opposition to Uranus and Pluto. Jupiter is in opposition to Pluto and square to Uranus continuously from mid January to mid May of 2014.

Mars is in opposition to Uranus and square to Pluto between mid April and the end of June 2014. These Mars aspects have the potential to produce revolutionary uprisings throughout the world, as marginalized populations struggle to barely survive. Issues of social justice will be of overriding concern.

What is needed is for the masses to be educated as to what and who is controlling the major economic structures of the world, the banking empires that control the bought out and blackmailed economic and political systems in every country. Until the people of every country, race, religion, and cultural background understand that they have a common enemy in the globalist banking empire and the trans-national mega corporations controlled by the elitists, the people of the world will be divided and conquered as usual. The proliferation of electronic communications technology is spreading the knowledge of what is really going on even as the elitists are doing everything they can to dumb down the masses and spread confusion and disinformation. This process is spreading and increasing exponentially through alternative media as the controlled corporate media becomes increasingly discredited and unpopular. As this process reaches critical mass, it will be unstoppable.

The transiting Sun in Aries was conjunct Uranus and square Pluto between March 30 and April 7, 2014. This aspect suggests abuse of power by politicians and other important people that will fuel revolutionary sentiment. We have already noted the armed standoff that occurred in Nevada between a family of ranchers who had public grazing rights for over a century and the fascist BLM agents who tried to kick them off the land.

A total lunar eclipse takes place on April 15, 2014 (at 25° Libra), with Mercury conjunct Uranus at 13° Aries activating the forming exact grand square at 12°-13° of the cardinal signs. As the transiting Moon in Libra approaches the exact eclipse degree, it will also activate the coming grand square. The Moon will be at 13° Libra at 2:03 a.m. PT (5:03 a.m. ET) on April 14, 2014.

With transiting Mercury in Aries conjunct Uranus and square Pluto between April 12 and April 16, there could be a dramatic news story involving misuse of power and betrayal of the public trust that will inflame public anger against the corrupt economic–political power structure and fuel revolutionary sentiment. Such a breaking news story could trigger the crisis associated with the cardinal grand square in the second half of April.

Hard-angle aspects (conjunction, square, opposition), angular houses, and cardinal Signs (including Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) have a quality of immediacy about them. They indicate crisis situations that cannot be put off and require immediate attention. Failure to take timely, responsible action has undesirable, if not disastrous, consequences. A grand square indicates a condition in which attempts to solve problems in one area aggravate problems in other areas.

Decades of economic mismanagement and parasitical manipulation of markets by the elitist cabal of central bankers will result in worldwide economic paralysis. It will take years, probably decades, to sort out this mess and, in the process, many governments and major corporations will fall by the wayside. The elitists think that they can manage this chaos, come out on top, and set up their one-world currency, dictatorship, and military. This delusional thinking will bring about their downfall and demise.

For the first time in history, a large and growing percentage of the world population is starting to understand who the real perpetrators of economic collapse and social chaos are. The old methods of divide and conquer — including false flag attacks and problem-reaction-solution manipulation of public opinion that served the elitist agenda so well in the past — will no longer work and will, in many cases, backfire. Once 5% to 10% of the population understands what is really going on, the rest of the population has to encounter the newly (to them) revealed information. Even if they reject these ideas, in time, they will have to accept them as more and more truth is revealed and becomes obvious as current historic events unfold. We are on the cusp of a huge change in mass awareness. Everything that is created by human civilization, good or bad, is first thought of and motivated within human awareness. Whatever is created in this process is a reflection of the level of consciousness of the person or people who created it. Significant advances are usually conceptualized by a small group of more intellectually advanced and intuitive individuals, and then put into action by larger collectives of people. To significantly change mass consciousness is to change everything.

This process has greatly accelerated in modern times as a result of an enormous intensification of the cosmic energies that affect human awareness and all life throughout our solar system. This change is in progress now and will continue to intensify.

NASA probes — sent to other planets and their moons in our solar system over the last 30 years — reveal massive changes in brightness, magnetic field strength, atmospheric weather features, and other scientifically measurable phenomena. Massive changes are happening on the Sun and throughout the solar system, and not just on Earth. This has to do with our solar system crossing the plane of the galaxy. On a more subtle level, these same cosmic energetic shifts are bringing about a massive change in human consciousness on planet Earth.

  1. I have a big issue about who is the fascist in the Nevada confrontation. The author states it is the BLM. But the Southern Poverty Law Center best known for its legal victories over the KKK and other hate groups and fighting for the downtrodden thinks otherwise. Today over a thousand extreme right wing supporters almost engaged in an armed conflict, and the BLM retreated. What happens now? Scary.

    • Pam,
      I am under the same impression you are as to who the aggressor is. It is my understanding the family has refused to pay the quite small rental fee for over 20 years. (The fact that they are allowed to graze on public lands for almost nothing is a whole other argument, related to mining and timber companies getting national goods for almost free). I am no fan of much of what the feds are currently doing, but I am reserving judgement for now. I, too, trust SPLC.
      I have a friend with family ties to a man who is part of a big survivalist/militia/anti-government group in Nevada that is quite active. These are people who foment rebellion not in a good way; they are part of the “‘those people are taking my country away from me'” movement, whose anger seems to be misdirected at the wrong agents of government. Instead of the bought and paid for politicians, they target agencies like the BLM.

      • Hi Susan..

        I’ll repeat my response made to Pam:

        Thanks for commenting..

        We decided to let Mr Acker’s statement about the situation in Nevada remain in the article. Obviously, this is his personal opinion and did not detract (in my view) from his overall astrological observations.

        Take care..

    • Hi Pam,

      Thanks for commenting..

      Be well..

  2. Great article. And I also agree totally with Pam. Not so sure it’s the BLM at fault in Nevada

    • Hi Diane,

      Glad you liked the article..please see my comments to Pam above..

      Thanks for stopping by..

  3. This is such a nice overview Louis. There is a different perspective that comes with age and experience; you are not afraid to look backwards and forwards. This is the first written description I have seen of the last 2 Pluto/Uranus squares and their accompaniments.I also especially enjoyed the confirmation of the truth of the 100th monkey and that it is only a matter of time..Bravo..

  4. I agree about the grazing rights; if land is “public”, then how can anyone one individual have “rights” to it?
    The land belongs to us, and the rancher simply didn’t pay the fees required, as do other persons who use public land for private profit. In other words, he was ripping off the government, and by extension, the people.I believe what will happen is that the BLM, since the rancher owes it a lot of money, will attach the money he makes when he sells the cattle, and thus recoup the fees he didnt pay. Although I agree that this rebellious and illegal action exemplifies the Uranus in Aries energy contesting the government’s (cap) policy of managing group property (pluto). Perfect example of the square.

  5. I see Mr Acker omitted commentary concerning U.S.’ Saturn being involved with current celestial cardinal squares. Though I wish his Utopian-styled awareness expansion and subsequent overthrow of the global ruling elite could be reflected in these current alignments in honesty there’s not much hope. The industrialized world has reached the WWI stage of another Gilded Age (see Thomas Piketty’s “Captial..”). Since so-called “disruptive technologies” seem to end up placing the elite into more control and more wealth I see nothing down the road to change rule by the few elites. That is, until Neptune moves into Aries. I know I won’t be around then but finding a peaceful place to exist or live will prove difficult.
