This Week In Astrology
Pluto, Saturn, Neptune and You
Capricorns birthdates January 10-14
Sun/Ascendants 20-24 degrees Capricorn
Capricorns have a special place in my heart as many family members and friends Facebook and otherwise have faced tremendous challenges with Pluto and the Saturn moving thru your sign. But the most irritation has been its presence in your 12th house. 12th house transits are notoriously notable for causing issues buried deep within the psyche as this house rules the subconscious. It is also the house of secrets that skeletons often find a need to crawl out of. It is also dubbed the house of secret sorrows meaning whatever‘s bothering you deep inside you may not want to share with others. Secret love affairs, prisons, hospitals, and all kinds of institutions related to the all the previous mentioned reside here. Here is the domain of dreams because of its relationship to Neptune and Pisces traditional rulers of the 12th.
− PLUTO THRU THE 12TH HOUSE -As of today, you are in the midst of experiencing a great transformation from where you have been since 2008 when Pluto entered your sign.
− Warning: Saturn retrogrades back into the 12th house - starting April 30 and it won’t be back to its original point now until January 1st, 2020, beginning direct motion not until September 18th at 13 degrees Capricorn, Pluto will be retrograde at 20 degrees
− Neptune says walk on faith - Neptune will remain at 17 degrees Pisces where it is making a beneficial sextile to both planets , it will be easier this time .
Pluto back in your 12th house
OMG, what a frigid party it has been for you, why oh why is the Universe picking on me?? Well the Universe picks on everybody, unfortunately it’s your turn. Hey, it’s moving into Aquarius 2024, what do I need to change I’m fine?? I’m sure I will find out I’m not as fine as I think I am. Speak to your neighbor sign Sagittarius they know the drill. Saturn tests with obstacles and delays, Uranus suddenly causes disruptions come hell or high water. Pluto subtly and slowly gets into your mind, looks for what shouldn’t be there, how its effecting you and or your environment, and like a skilled brain surgeon painstakingly removes the tumor, wherever it’s located. (And yes, sometimes the surgery doesn’t go well, and you die a physical death) Old astrologer’s say that we shouldn’t talk or predict death, but I saw a Capricorn friend of 30 years go to his father’s grave and take a bullet to this head, when Pluto was deep in his crosshairs. He needed to make deep psychological changes (Libertarians will pay taxes to Uncle Sam or else) and vehemently refused. Pluto and death have a way of existing together, a relative with Capricorn rising saw many a funeral of people close to him while this transit progressed. Well that’s over with now, he’s in your 1st house now, you’re battle worn but you’re a soldier who survived, nothing to do now but get about the job of living. Therefore, Pluto rules death, rebirth and transformation. Death is not always physical, you can die a mental, emotional, financial, etc. death to be reborn again with new life and purpose. Pluto isn’t about fixing what’s broken, Pluto is about total destruction of the offending element and rebuild, rebirth, like Scorpio the sign it rules. This is where they get those qualities from. Now you need to beware of Saturn’s retrogrades.
Saturn Retrogrades back into the 12th house
Beginning April 30th, Saturn will begin its retrograde 20 degrees Capricorn, for now it has also just crossed over into your 1st house of self in conjunction with Pluto and your Ascendant adding to your new life, well alright!! Well not so fast, when Saturn or any other big planet retrogrades “YOU HAVE TO THINK BACK” also. This is when Saturn decides to give a universal test to see what you have learned and go over the material covered when it trekked thru where it’s going back to. If it crossed over and made direct contact with other planets and houses, you may need to investigate that too, or have an experienced astrologer help you navigate your chart. If Pluto is the psychiatrist, then Saturn is the disciplinarian and he rewards and punishes in equal measure. The thing is it’s often hard to pass his classes no matter how much you pay attention. But Capricorn this is your ruling planet, discipline and strength is what you do, you got this. I will go out on a limb and say something that was rather disturbing and/or unsettling when Saturn was 10 degrees January 1st is about to be rehashed. What did you learn? What happened doing this time? How did it effect your life? WHAT DID YOU LEARN FROM IT!?!? Let me say this again, WHAT DID YOU LEARN FROM IT?!?! As Saturn retrogrades this is going to be very important to your new life and how it rebirths, Pluto is going to stay where it is for now, it doesn’t move very fast remember? But praise the universe, Pluto has given you psychological muscles you weren’t aware you owned. If you were aware well you got big kahunas now, don’t you 😊. So, flex your tri (mind, body, spirit) ceps and get ready to work out, one more time. Only this time with a stronger mind, body, and soul.
Neptune says Walk in Faith
Briefly, Neptune is making a sextile to your Sun/Ascendant although its in waning (moving away), giving you a spiritual lift so to say. If you feel with all that you’ve been thru somehow your faith has kept you strong and your gut hasn’t steered you wrong, you would be correct all along. Saturn will be moving away from Neptune but stay within striking distance of positive contact, perhaps this test will have merciful overtones after all. Sticking with this theme Saturn will help along with Pluto transform and correct a situation. The outcome will be solidified by Saturn, because at the end of the day Saturn/Capricorn brings stability, purpose, and determination to whatever area it’s in. If you have personal planets (Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars) and contacts are made directly expect things to solidify or break.
• Moon -emotional strength, test or trauma
• Mercury- mental exhaustion, stability amongst chaos/sorrow
• Venus- secret affairs disrupt, love and money insecurities, hidden emotions
• Mars- energy issues, secret enemies, institutions (prisons, hospitals) involved
If it breaks let it, its time is up. I have mostly always seen a divorce after a 12th house transit of any major planet, but more so with Saturn, earth signs can handle the pressure better and try to hold on. But oftentimes it’s not meant to be ☹. This is where the spirituality of Neptune works in tandem with Pluto and Saturn to say “Keep your head up” things are going to get easier.
