The last time in history that Pluto was in Capricorn was in the 1760’s and 1770’s. This coincided with the foundation of America, the discovery of Australia and the lead up to the French Revolution. These were times of immense change, not unlike the huge turbulence we are experiencing now.
The USA’s Pluto return is in 2022 so it is likely that the process of transformation and regeneration will culminate at that time.
In August 2010, there are serious and conflicting vibrations with Saturn and Uranus opposing one another and squaring Pluto. This is going to mean a breakdown of social standards, a likely surge in violence around the world and the return of capital punishment in countries that have previously abolished it.
At the end of this year, Saturn goes into Libra and the crux of world politics will change. Unless there is fairness and equality in our systems for the masses, Saturn will force the breakdown of existing structures until integrity reigns once more.
Pluto is in Capricorn from 2008 to 2024 and the areas of life it rules are: government, currency, careers, engineers, coal and alternative energy, corporations, clocks, watches, time, financial services, gerontology, investment companies, nursing homes, businesses, offices, security systems, salt and underground tunnels. Pluto will take out and reorganise the above areas so you can expect to see a new world infrastructure, new banking systems, transformed governments, changes in the way we treat the elderly, alternative energy production, better use being made of scarce resources, a time of reining ourselves in and not spending or consuming beyond our means.
Pluto in Capricorn will bring earthquakes in areas not known for them. We are likely to see more volcanoes during 2010-2018 while Uranus is in Aries. This means that there will be much less security and people will be more fearful. On a personal level, it is time to rid yourself of debts and only to buy what you absolutely “need” and not just things you would like to have. We each have to take responsibility for our future and not expect governments to do it for us. This includes pensions and investments – we will have to become more financially literate and take control of our finances and our destiny.
