Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and TransPluto represent Spiritual energy fields leading us into transpersonal realms of long term transfigurations, bringing us to our individuality, our place in the collective field, and times of purification so we can redeem the highest, best parts of who we are. This “spiritual quartet” are invisible to the eye, and so represent the invisible “unified field of Spirit” where the human beholds the infinite. Welcome to part two of what began yesterday, where we'll explore how to master life and become a conscious Spirit in the material world!
All four of these outer invisible planets play their part in the larger tides of human evolution, awakening progressive ideas and movements, larger connections and dissolutions between nations, races, and life systems, and radical transformations which eliminate old ideas and eras, creating voids which bring forth newer creative ideas and movements. The Triad of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto eternally create, preserve, and destroy, demonstrating the Three Divine Laws in our Solar System. They are Economy of Energy, Magnetic Attraction, and Synthesis.
These work together to bring forth higher realizations in all of us. As a result of Pluto we learn about the precision of the universe in bringing forth and taking away elements of our lives as Neptune teaches us how to attract and let go of all which comes to us. And throughout all the comings and goings, Uranus leads us through a never-ending series of awakenings where everything synthesizes together so we always become more aware and more capable than we were before.
TransPluto stands beyond these as a vaster field of influence, where all is redeemed after periods of darkness and death. I explain more about Her special status later in this article. For now, we’ll focus on the Triad of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
The Spiritual Field is Within Us and Without Us
Because they work together to create a transformational process working its magic on our higher spiritual Self, as well as transpersonal global levels, we all eventually must come to terms with our responses within that vast spiritual field. Because their orbits are long and they move relatively slowly, what they bring stays with us forever through the long term lessons we must learn. That’s why even after their transits of one or more of our planets is past, we are changed by the experience.
As a result of the profound effects accompanying these long term transformations, we learn to take a different view of what can and cannot be accomplished given the time constraints in play in any given chapter of our lives. While we like to believe “all things are possible,” Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto’s collective spiritual field works on its own level to confirm or deny what is possible at a given time within the larger circumstances since each season has its requirements, its potentials, and its limitations, regardless of our opinion of what we believe we or another might accomplish.
These outer invisible energies symbolize “the invisible hand” of constant transformation leading us to our spiritual individuality, where we can directly experience our oneness with “All-That-Is.” The entire process of spiritual transformation requires our willingness to allow old parts of us to die so our Higher Self, the Phoenix Firebird of eternal rebirth, may rise from the ashes of our prior life.
The Outer Invisibles Lead Us Beyond Our Limitations
Since the planets beyond Saturn represent the Transpersonal levels of the larger unified spiritual field, besides awakening us to a greater understanding and awareness, they also demonstrate the human fallacy of believing "we create our reality." Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto teach us that ego does not control anything outside its own limitations, as they are associated with the larger global forces in play which individuals have little or no control over.
While Saturn is the ego's "Ring Pass Not," representing our natural limits in a given chapter of life, these planets defining the spiritual field are beyond the limiting, binding force we humans live within. Even though we cannot move past our limitations until we have learned all there is to learn about those limitations, the outer invisible represent the means by which we expand our “Ring Pass Not” when we are ready to be of greater service to ourselves and humanity.
The outer Triad represent vast systems which were already in place before we were born. They symbolize great Beings and movements which set powerful forces into motion across decades and centuries. Besides the transit cycles affecting all of us, our natal Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto symbolize the larger collective patterns in our family line and environment.
All of us are subject to larger absolute collective forces in life, and from our earliest childhood we know we are caught in patterns we didn’t make and cannot control. We are forced to learn how and when to adapt the best we’re able to our environment and the demands of our family and cultural matrix. I also address the timing on these changes in Saturn: Spiritual Master, Spiritual Friend, since Saturn shows the timing on what we must learn and understand on our path to become our individual spiritual Self, consciously riding the waves of eternal change into ever-greater awareness.
Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto Cycles And the Sweep of History
All of the planets beyond Saturn stay in a sign for many years, with the cycles growing longer with each planet outward. When these planets make conjunctions and significant aspects with each other, the entire world is impacted during those times as well as for centuries after. For example, Neptune conjuncted Pluto in the late 19th century, and these two are still in the early part of their waxing phase.
Uranus conjuncted Pluto in the 1960s, and recently finished their waxing square, creating a phase shift in how these two transpersonal forces relate to each other. Uranus conjuncted Neptune in the 1990s, and are now in the crucial area of a semisquare and septile of their waxing phase. As you can see, both Uranus and Neptune are in a waxing, or opening, phase with Pluto, as well as each other.
Each of these long wave cycles now opening will last for centuries. The next Uranus conjunct Pluto will be in 2221-2222, and that’s the shortest of these cycles. As each of these planets shifts from one sign to the next, it brings the next “color/tone frequency” into the larger spiritual field as the natural evolution of a much larger process of expanding spiritual awareness of “All-That-Is.”
Because they operate beyond individual circumstances, the larger evolving spiritual field operates on its own level independently of individual chart positions. Where Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are in our chart shows us our unique “gateway to the eternal.” And because evolution is an unbroken continuity of collective experience, our natal transpersonal planets show us the larger spiritual field when we were born, as well as the evolved spiritual field that the generations and sub-generations after us were born into, as shown by each sign occupancy naturally giving way to the next.
I leave TransPluto in Her own realm, since Her orbit is about 660 years, a far vaster cycle and therefore vaster influence than any of the three we’re discussing. This is the planet beyond Pluto. I believe it is the planet of “Divine Mother” which provides a much larger tapestry of our evolving sense of “God.” This is the “face of God” which represents Divine Grace, and as such can have no negative or destructive manifestations. She presides over a vast collective redemptive process which is a necessary phase in our understanding of “God.”
Because She is beyond even the three Laws, I believe all we can do to ground this greater part of the Spiritual Field is surrender to “Divine Mother” energy and bring forth as much compassion and forgiveness as possible in all our interactions. Mother wants no harm for any of Her children, and being outside the realm of Pluto (Shiva), TransPluto (Parvati) restores all things in the proper time of the season. Practically speaking, true forgiveness creates the space for Grace to manifest, and compassion links us to all sentient Beings across time, both in this world and greater ones.
Saturn and Chiron Are Guardians and Mentors at the Threshold
As I offered earlier, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto symbolize the Invisible Triad of Spirit and the Divine Laws of Economy of Energy, Magnetic Attraction, and Synthesis expressing spiritual energies which move our personality “lights” symbolized by the 7 Sacred Planets. We can only master these energies of the larger spiritual field through the planetary energies of Saturn and Chiron who guard the boundaries of the visible and invisible.
Saturn teaches us self-discipline, maturity, and our responsibility to be our Highest Self in the world. Chiron is our mentor who “heals us into our Higher Self” through its mastery of many skills in many fields. Chiron shows us how to transmute the pain and suffering of our lesser wounds, as well as our Sacred Wound(s), into our connection with the suffering heart of humanity and our ability to be the Love we ARE even in our woundedness. Through Chiron we quest for healing all parts of our personality so we may express the loving Light we ARE. Saturn and Chiron teach us how to express our other (visible) planetary energies in the best ways possible.
As our spiritual understanding matures, we learn how to apply the 3 great Laws. We find the Transpersonal energies of Pluto show us how to be economical in our use of energy, and the seeds of life which might provide us a fantastic bounty. The Transpersonal energies of Neptune show us how to manage our magnetism so we move through attractions and releases with grace, fluidity, and compassion. The Transpersonal energies of Uranus help us discover our uniqueness by our ability to synthesize all our actions, thoughts, and feelings into a personality that is perfect for us, and all our skills, gifts, and experiences into forms of genius.
As we learn how to discipline our body, feelings, and mind, bringing each of these into its purest, most aware and unique expression, we find we are developing a personality that allows our Higher Self to see the Way clearly. As we continue to integrate our lower self and practice purification, non-separateness, and creative genius, we allow ourselves to become adequate vehicles for our greater Spiritual purpose, which will play out via the Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in our charts, as well as how we respond to the ongoing forces symbolized by the transiting Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
Making Saturn Our Friend Guarantees We Will Become Our Higher Self
If we want to be able to utilize the spiritual field effectively in our lives, we must make our inner Saturn our friend, guide, and teacher. As we embrace our Saturnine power to understand all we must understand, we gain wisdom by how we learn to shape our inner and outer environment through conscious choices. Saturn teaches us we are eternally free to choose how we experience and respond to the circumstances that matter. As we elevate and perfect our responses to both pleasurable and difficult experiences, we become the grounding agents for the Uranian, Neptunian, and Plutonian energies in situations, bringing forth the best we can based in our skills.
Opening to becoming a Saturn-structured vehicle for the spiritual energies of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto allows us to navigate circumstances which used to create fear and/or confusion. As we master how to bring forth various energies from the spiritual field in practical service to the greater Good, we find we have become part of “the corrective force of Nature Herself.” These topics and more are also discussed in depth in Saturn: Spiritual Master, Spiritual Friend. The dance of Saturn with the outer planets helps us become masters of our destiny and find security in knowing we are living our Purpose for being on Earth. As we make our inner Saturn our friend, we shed our fears and become our greatest spiritual expression in our world.
As we learn to accept that the larger transformational process is leading us beyond lesser things, we learn not to fear the inevitable transformations of life. Over time we lose our sense of “not knowing” and begin to ride the waves with greater ease and grace. As we consciously participate in our own eternal transformational process, we find our sense of separateness fading away and begin to experience that our dance is one with the dance of the cosmos as reflected in the dance of the planets, both in our charts and unto themselves. So while we may not “create” the larger reality, we do “co-create” the local spiritual manifestations in our field of activity. These transform situations and lives, leading to a different future for all.
This relates to one of the tests of being human. We are here to learn to be aware of and consciously cooperate with the larger patterns of transformation leading us to our special Destiny and purpose. As we consciously shape our responses to each life challenge, we find all parts of our personality cooperating to bring us to our unique path of Higher Awareness. Learning to be conscious in choosing our responses always involves experimenting with the Laws of Economy of Energy, Magnetic Attraction, and Synthesis in various forms.
We are here to have the widest possible effectiveness and learn all we can in the years we have here on Earth. That requires going through all the possible situations we can so we have direct experiences helping us understand what works for us and what doesn’t, and how circumstances change as a function of time and our growth in understanding and cooperating with our evolutionary process As a result of our experiences, we find sometimes we are bridge builders, sometimes we are renovators, and sometimes we are seed carriers, whether giving or receiving.
In the process of becoming liberated from unconscious actions and reactions, we learn about economy, magnetism and synthesis. We learn through who and what we are attracted to and why, as well as when the magnetism just isn't right between us and a person, idea, or situation. We must understand good seeds from bad seeds, and regenerative forces from degenerative forces. And we must learn how to combine and recombine so we know what works well and what doesn’t, and what fits together and what doesn’t.
The dance our personality does with our Higher Self and Soul shows us how to put it all together in a larger vision that allows us to remember we're forever free to explore the True, the Good, and the Beautiful. It’s all a grand experiment in us learning how to navigate the Spiritual Field and become its expression in the world in our unique way. We are Love, Wisdom, and Intelligence. These things are what Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto reveal to us if we open our eyes to their invisible blessings.
