Uranus, Pluto and Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan might seem like just another spoilt actress who can’t keep her personal life in order, but we can also see her as the poster child of the ongoing square between transiting Uranus and Pluto. We don’t have a time of birth for Lohan, (click here to see a chart done for noon) but we do know that her Sun is at ten degrees of Cancer. Pluto has been moving opposite that degree and Uranus has been close to a 90 degree square to it since early 2012. What this aspect is doing to our society as a whole is, in many ways, mirrored is Lohan’s troubled life.


Pluto is the planet of transformation. There is nothing cheap or easy about a Pluto transformation. It’s a down to the bones, life altering, merciless overhaul of all your priorities and desires. Uranus is the planet of change, not “fun” change but change that is jolting, unpredictable and often painful.


On a societal level, particularly with reference to the U.S., the Uranus to Pluto square began shortly after the 2008 economic crash. It accompanied the rise of the Tea Party and a widening of the gulf between conservatives and liberals. During this transit we’ve seen conservatives in many states pass laws aimed at restricting immigration and abortions. At the same time, other states have been passing laws legalizing gay marriage.


A lot of astrologers see Pluto as representing conservatives and vested interest and Uranus as symbolizing liberals and the working class, but I think that both these planets are crying out for transformation and change and that everyone, regardless of the political affiliation or lack thereof, is responding to that call. The kind of change we get depends on who happens to be in charge.


People like Lindsay Lohan, who have the Sun or another personal astrological body (the Moon, Mercury, Venus or Mars) aspected by transiting Pluto and Uranus are feeling the call for transformation and change in a more intimate and subjective way. In Lohan’s case, the message was emphasized by some time in jail and court ordered rehab. That’s the thing about planets like Uranus and Pluto. If you aren’t prepared to listen to them in the quietude of your soul, they will bring on other, far less subtle messengers to shake you out of your slumber.


The most recent news about Lindsay Lohan indicates that she is responding to this call. She completed her stint in rehab with what seems to a healthier attitude. She also has a new movie out and a big interview with Oprah that is set to be aired this weekend. Could it be that this famous “bad girl” has turned the corner?


It’s really too soon to say because Uranus and Pluto are going to be impacting Lohan’s Sun for several more months. In Oct. of this year, the both will be in a tight aspect with ten degree Cancer and the actress will be faced with the need for further changes and further transformation. A lot depends on how she responds to this call. She could take another step forward or she could slip back to square one.


So how’ll about you folks? How has Uranus and Pluto been impacting your life? People with the Sun, Moon or a personal planet between nine and thirteen degree of a Cardinal Sign (Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra) have been taking the brunt of this aspect during the past year or so. What do you have to report?
