I realise that many readers will be somewhat tired of hearing about Pluto’s passage through Capricorn! However, I have to repeat 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.
The link previously mentioned between Jupiter and Neptune for June continues for most of July. It is quite a subtle link, but nevertheless powerful. The difficult side of this is the tendency to let things slide, to be over-optimistic and to be liable to deception. The positive side is optimism sensibly invested, also sensitivity to what is happening at inner levels. Remaining realistic is important, but provided this can be achieved it can be a useful combination of influences. It is also helpful for artistic and cultural pursuits. Other than this, July is fairly ‘quiet’, though the major influences mentioned in the general remarks continue to affect global life as deeply as always.
Saturn and Pluto (see above also) are both stationary sometime in April, so that this month is liable to feel very heavily fated in some ways. We may well have to make extra effort to ‘gowith the flow’ and accept what we can’t change. In addition, in mid April (during the Easter weekend) Venus is stationary and in close aspect with Mars, Saturn and Uranus.
An opposition between Jupiter and Uranus during this period suggests a time of revolutionary and iconoclastic thoughts and actions! At the time of writing this seems only too likely; however, the Saturn-Uranus trine (see above) will help to make it less reckless in its effects.
Jupiter has now moved into Libra, a much more congenial sign for it than Virgo. This does not mean it won’t pose challenges, but Jupiter’s natural optimism should help us to face the challenges more optimistically. During late October that planet moves into orbs of a square with Pluto, which will actually remain within orbs for much of next year. The square will help to bring right out into the open many more situations that involve tension between what is perceived as right and just [Jupiter in Libra] and the vested interests of large organizations and governments [Pluto in Capricorn].
