Saturn Square Pluto ---A Supreme Problem

As I mentioned here and here and here we are experiencing a hideous square between Saturn in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn. The tension is great but certainly on days where the aspect is exact the pain is a bit concentrated (to say the least) . The first hit took place on November 15 and the second is January 31.

And, OMG it showed up in the most perfectly (hideous) way. Contracts and legal maneuvers are in landscape of Libra and god knows business and money is Capricorn. I was only partly joking when I wrote on Capricorn new moon that one of my favorite lyrics, "I've got my mind on money and my money on my mind" would be the calling call of the month and never was it more true than the Supreme Court's mindbogglingly ruling yesterday. If you have not heard the supreme court ruling overturned the limit on campaign donations by businesses. Now the roads are clear for a politician who plays ball with let's say Big Pharms to have Eli Lilly or Merck donate endless shovels of cold hard cash to their campaign. And I can't say it any better than this:

"We are moving to an age where we won't have the senator from Arkansas or the congressman from North Carolina, but the senator from Wal-Mart and the congressman from Bank of America," said Melanie Sloan, director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.

Saturn Square Pluto is in the house. We will continue to feel the pressure of these two planets although it will dissipate a bit in the spring but then build up for big ass peak in August and then come back again in the Spring and Summer of 2011. I would say, we should expect more shit to hit the fan but I dunno, maybe people will see through this crap.

And fwiw, also yesterday there was a big drop in the Dow. Of which I say, "no shit, sherlock."

ETA: I was poking around on NodeOrama (see link on the right) and MsGeminiRising posted a link to her blog which had a great note Jupiter in Pisces and this Judicial Move. She is completely correct on it. Give it a read.

ETA2: I had inadvertantly written 1/21 for the exact square. Total is 1/31


  1. Tracy, thank you for this. I have to say, I don't allow my feathers to get ruffled much by politics, but this ruling is truly malefic (to use an astrological term). I simply cannot understand this and am very very disturbed. It is a morally wrong ruling. This is truly the dark side of Pluto in Capricorn and what I was afraid of about 5 years ago when I realized Plu/Cap was coming. Anyway, thanks. I am just going to resign myself to the situation and do what I can to effect change locally and with my own govt representatives. Blessings to you, Carol

  2. Carol,
    It is bad. Very bad. I have to hope and pray that we will see something ultimately positive out of this period. I'm not sure what it will be but like you said we can effect change in our own way somewhere...and that is what we MUST do. My son's school benefits by my own inner angst which is agitated by Pluto on my 10th!

  3. Hello Tracy,

    Thank you so much for linking to my post! Glad to meet you online and look forward to sharing astro-knowledge! I love how astrology provides context to the crazy and amazing things that happen in our lives.

  4. My pleasure, Autumn. We are all in this mess (cardinal cross) together. We need to share the data so we can make sense of it all. hugs
