Pluto in Capricorn
Pluto is the natural ruler of oil, big business and income from other sources. While Pluto was in the sign of Sagittarius it was quite free and more open. Banks and big business saw record profits. The oil companies were allowed to gouge clients, and it was a smorgasbord for big business incomes. The money seemed to flow with an endless supply and everyone wanted their bit of the pie. The one thing again about the sign of Sagittarius is that it is about excess, and in this case excess in the extreme (Pluto) or obsessive excesses.
We soon will have Pluto in Capricorn. Again Pluto represents oil, gas and minerals under the earth, as well as banks and big business. The sign of Capricorn though, is about rules, restrictions, depression and Governments. As Pluto gets closer to its third connection to the Aries point at 0 degrees Capricorn, a major shift will occur to try to balance the excesses seen when Pluto was in Sagittarius.
An Aries point is at 0 degrees of any of the four Cardinal points. When one is triggered they then are all triggered in sequence bringing the issues to the publics notice in some manner. In this case Capricorn rules Governments, rules and regulations as well as restrictions to the point of depression. Capricorn will be triggered first this time and Pluto is exact on its third and final pass over Capricorn November 27, 2008 EST. The next point to be triggered is 0 degrees Aries which rules men in uniform/war, and actions taken, the third point is 0 degrees Cancer which rules women, families and fluids (water). The last and final point is 0 degrees Libra which rules a need for balance and relationships, many relationships may split due to this stress. There will be a need for each of us to help each other, give tips on how to cope, help a neighbor etc.
There will be a reigning in of the extremes seen during the time when gas and oil prices were allowed to increase to a level that crippled countries and brought economies to their knees. There will be rules and government intervention in the areas of banks and big business including the stock markets. There will be a need for a father type figure(s) to emerge who will try to make it right telling you what you can and can’t do (for your own good).
Unfortunately with Pluto in Capricorn you may then see extremes in the opposite direction where there is no growth allowed or only for a select few deemed risk free by the government body(s) set up. There will be a need for everyone to work together to do their part to help one another. This won’t be a pretty time, or an easy time for anyone. Take lessons from those who lived through the last depression and incorperate what works for you into your lifestyle. Make the necessary cuts now so that you can reap the benefits in the future.
Good luck! Bev.
