This past week has been an interesting mix of tense and flowing aspects: Monday saw the Sun square Pluto: a face-off between personal power and external authority. Wednesday, Mercury entered Cancer.
Sunday, the Cancer Sun will square Uranus in Aries. This is like driving home to enjoy the comforts of family and a nice meal, and getting T-boned by an erratic teenager!
Hopefully that situation won’t actually happen to you, but it gives you an idea of what it’s like to clash with the planet of rebellion. Uranus in Aries is a lot like a teenager, refusing to obey rules of society, demanding to do his own thing. To sensitive (yet matriarchal) Sun in Cancer, it’s like a self-absorbed teenager who won’t listen! But you can’t do the smother-mother thing.
Squares are crises, but a transit like this can “spur” you into action, so if you look at it as an immediate opportunity to grow (rather than issues or people that foil your plans), it takes on new meaning. Squares involving the Sun and another planet can manifest in the form of a quarrel between you and someone else. It helps to recognize that the other person is just an outer projection of your own issues, in those cases!
