24 Cap 06
On April 4 Jupiter got on top of Pluto forming a conjunction. This aspect repeats two more times on June 29 and November 12. Let’s stop down to make two points. The last time Jupiter was in Capricorn was 2008 at that same time Pluto had just moved into Capricorn. They did not form a conjunction because they were too far apart. But they were close enough to impact the world and when both planets turned direct in September of 2008, within days of each other, the stock market crashed activating The Recession. Last December Jupiter entered Capricorn for the first time in 12 years and headed for Pluto. As in 2008 we saw the volatility of the stock market again. There have been major drops and some rallies tied to big bail outs. The last time we had those bail outs was again in 2008-2009 when both were in Capricorn. As the biggest planet of the zodiac tangles with arguably the most powerful planet in the zodiac (Pluto rules power) we should anticipate major economic swings. Major. Not itty bitty, big as in BIG. As to the other point and I have said both of these points before, but they bear repeating. Historians of astrology will write that the Covid-19 virus is tied to January 10 Solar Eclipse, January 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto and April 4 Jupiter conjunct Pluto. So here we sit with Jupiter not done with Pluto. We should anticipate a call back to April as we head towards June 29 and again on November 12. While we note the dates, the truth is that the two planets never get that far apart so this Jupiter Pluto mash up is an influence all summer and fall. And not to put too fine a point, the last time Jupiter and Pluto were in conjunction in Capricorn was 1771. For those of us familiar with American history we will note that was the run up to the Independence War. Something was happening that would set up the future for USA. Now the USA future is being formed again in 2020. ‘What works?’ asks Capricorn. ‘Who in power and is effective?’ Asks Pluto. ‘How are people’s beliefs being transformed?’ asks Jupiter conjunct Pluto. ‘What are the big ideas?’ Asks Jupiter. Then at the end of the year, Jupiter will finally move out of Capricorn and into Aquarius on Dec 19and on Dec 21 it will conjunct Saturn in Aquarius setting off a new cycle in air signs for the next 200 years. In Aquarius we will consider humanity and what serves the majority. What is humane? Watch for issues in the news and our personal life where we ask: ‘What works?’ ‘Who is in power and are they effective?’ ‘How are people’s beliefs being transformed?’ ‘What are the big ideas?’ There could be some pain and a sober note that something is not working. Death and rebirth are critical for Pluto including death of an idea or thinking. As always, breathe through the tension.
