Yet again I have to repeat what I have said for quite some time now about Pluto’s passage through Capricorn! I take no credit for time proving right my assertion about its effects, but the fact was and is that it will continue to have a major effect on world affairs both politically and institutionally, uncovering corruption and lack of truth wherever they may be found. As always, we need to remember that these challenging experiences come to humanity to help us to learn and grow, however unpalatable they may be. Pluto continues its inexorable elimination of all that is unwanted as it helps the world to move forward to a better future. In the midst of all the problems and chaotic conditions of the world at present, we need to hold our nerve and remind ourselves continually that we truly are on the path to that better future.
While the harmonious aspect between Saturn and Uranus lingers for a few weeks longer [see notes on the previous quarter], it is overtaken, as it were, by Jupiter’s move from Scorpio into Sagittarius in early November. As that change is taking place, Jupiter for a few days forms an aspect with Uranus which suggests a certain release of tension but a tendency to over-excitement in a general way. However, Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, so the planet is entering its own sign, a good place to be. Saturn is in its own sign too, being currently in Capricorn, so both those two important heavy planets will then be in their own signs at the same time. This will continue to be the case until nearly the end of next year , and is the first time that it has happened for nearly sixty years. Jupiter and Saturn balance each other well, so that any situation in which they are working together has the potential for steady progress.
As mentioned in the general trends above, Saturn and Uranus are harmoniously in aspect during this period; on the whole this is helpful as it combines the new-age, innovative Uranus with the steadiness and focus of Saturn. However, it is also a very strong-willed combination, so that its manifestation depends much on where and how that will is directed.
In addition to the general trends mentioned above, Jupiter and Pluto are still in harmonious aspect during April and May; of the two planets Pluto is the one that is more stimulated, Jupiter being in Pluto’s sign [Scorpio]. This will tend to speed up the process that Pluto is taking the world through, more secrets coming to the surface, more revelations of bad or unwise behaviour in high places, and so on. It may also present a lot of temptation, especially in terms of power and finance, so often linked. Can we ‘tap into’ Saturn in Capricorn enough to resist?
