Uranus, Pluto, Libra
As we know there is a tension between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn that is only going to grow in intensity. The two planets will be going after each other with hammer and tongs between 2012-2017. We already began feeling it this summer when they got close to the exact degree of a square. However, as written in my New Moon article, there are plenty of Libra planets (with skin in the game) who are aggravating the Pluto/Uranus tension. So much that we don't need the aspect to be exact to hurt.
Case in point, the protesting crowds on Wall Street. This movement began right after Pluto turned direct, September 17 (having been retrograde for over five months). This was on the waning Virgo Moon and not surprising it received little press. But now, with Libra in the fight. It is getting uglier. One police officer's action was videotaped, (isn't that always how these things start?) but clearly the majority of the police presence was calm and reserved and probably not unsympathetic to the message given many officers have houses near or under foreclosure.
Of course, "Haves versus the Have Nots" is part of the message that we should expect from any tension with Pluto in Capricorn. And magnified by the Libra tension is focus on "what's fair and what is not fair."
Even if these particular protests on Wall Street end soon the tension is not going away.
