Pluto in Capricorn

Stoney Tunes

    Whoaaa! Did you feel that?

“Life terminates in a sleep that is followed by a new awakening.” ~Chuang Tzu

This little so-called dwarf-planet has been wreaking much  havoc these days.  With it’s entry in Capricorn, Pluto has poised its energy to challenge the constructs of conventional wisdom, thereby breaking down and rebuilding the very fabric of our lives.

Here are some examples of humanity’s response to this energy combo:

  • Security Issues
    • Entitlements  and social safety nets are severely reigned in – what will be the  consequences of this action?
  • Power  Struggles
    • Political  extremism
    • Fear of losing perceived power expressed through miserly behavior from certain corporate powers-that-be

Capricorn energy rules structure, so figuratively and  literally our structural terrain will be shaken enough so that we’ll be forced to rebuild.

Another interesting mix in this energy pattern is Uranus squaring Pluto.  The last time we experienced this energy combination was in 1966 – a very tumultuous decade.  There’s no coincidence that the  Occupy Wall Street Campaign is gaining increasing national momentum.

Recently, I heard a gubernatorial candidate defend these young folks against accusations of being anti-American, “I’m 68,” he said, “and I can remember the Viet Nam protests and the Civil Rights marches.  This is very much an American process…  They may not always be right, but they are not afraid to talk about subjects older adults prefer not to address.”

On another structural change, recently an Israeli scientist, Dan Shechtman discovered a new crystalline chemical structure, research his peers had previously ridiculed and ostracized him for.  Last Wednesday, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry.

Pluto in Capricorn square Uranus in Aries – these energy combinations are allowing us to face and erase our outmoded constructs and embrace the change of a purer, more effective paradigm.  On a personal level, how are you affected by this change?

May we welcome the winds of change just like the mighty oak–humbly bending to the will of the universe, which reflects our inner-self–our true self.  I pray that we face and erase concepts that no longer serve us and embrace the change that beseech us.  I pray that we find truth and peace after  the storm.
