As part of my Monthly Astrology Horoscope for September I have created a post specifically focusing on the transition of Pluto stationing from retrograde to direct in Capricorn on September 26, 2016.
Pluto stations Direct in Capricorn on September 26, 2016 at 11:02 a.m. EDT. This happens right in the middle of the sign of Capricorn very close to 15 degrees. Each of the 12 zodiac signs are demarcated by 30 degrees each.
Pluto entered Capricorn in January of 2008 and will remain in Capricorn until the end of 2024. That’s 16 years in Capricorn. Pluto will not be in Capricorn again for about 250 more years!
Pluto stationing direct this month marks a significant turning point, or crossing of the guard, especially in business matters, the economy and politics. We’re right smack dab in the middle of Pluto’s cycle through Capricorn.
Pluto in Capricorn is about leadership, power, career, ambition, business, politics and it’s especially about changing the system and the changing of authority figures. With the political climate building up to the many considerations of power and change in a couple of months, we are now entering into a potent time of transition. We are at a crossroads, a midway point.
While Pluto has been in Capricorn, and especially while retrograde, the political, business, and an economic world has had an intensity that is arguably more noticeable in recent years. Perhaps that would be difficult to measure scientifically, but with our mass media escalating and people connecting online growing exponentially in recent years, I think it’s pretty safe to say we’re more exposed to political and what’s going on in world affairs now more than ever.
When Pluto goes down into the underworld, there is more of a focus of getting rid of lies, corruption and negativity, so we can move forward with more personal empowerment and achieve goals that are more important to our lives.
Pluto retrograde in Capricorn is about how the hidden things (like lies and corruption behind the scenes in politics and business) affect reality and have a direct, physical impact on the world we live in. By looking at the not-so-nice things going on in the world especially the results of the hierarchy of power in the world, people can get riled up and demand change.
When it comes to power in business and politics, it has a lot to do with sweeping powers that affect the personal lives of all of us. What we see more people acknowledging these days is a lack of trust in authority. The common theme I see is that people on all sides are looking for the truth and are tired of lies.
Pluto in Capricorn also speaks to people being tired of a corporations, and people in general, polluting the environment and disregarding nature. By acknowledging what’s wrong, we can choose to do better.
When Pluto goes direct, it’s like we say, “OK, I’m aware of the horrible things going on in the world and I’m going to do something to change something for the better.” It is changing our perception of nature as a dumping ground at our disposal, towards recognizing nature as a sacred place that sustains life.
Small steps count, like composting to nourish your plants with fertile soil, instead of throwing out rotting food mixed in with garbage and recyclables.
Pluto retrograde is also like cleaning out the rotting food that’s been hidden at the back of your refrigerator in that Tupperware you forgot about.
Pluto in Capricorn also has personal associations relating to your goals and career matters. What are you really going for? What do you want? What are your ambitions? Are you ready to make a change in your career? While retrograde we can feel the need to get rid of or leave what we don’t like in these areas of life so we can move forward on a stronger path that is more in line with the ladders we really want to climb.
Are you ready to set new goals and let go of those that are no longer important to you? Mercury retrograde in Virgo is great for brainstorming these types of consideration as well.
Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, is in Sagittarius, which signifies obstacles between cultures worldwide. Just turn on the news and the evidence is everywhere. For some this can signify a fear of traveling outside your comfort zone.
A wall between Mexico and the United States would be a strong physical manifestation of this type of barrier between cultures of Saturn in Sagittarius.
This divide between cultures and philosophies on life, plays a strong role in politics with Pluto in Saturn-ruled-Capricorn now.
On the flipside, it can also signify how many people want life to change, to get outside the small bubble to explore more of life. People with low incomes can feel fed up with being restricted from experiencing more of life as they struggle paycheck to paycheck. The desire to see more of the world can inspire people to work hard, to change careers and find the determination to build a strong financial foundation to be able to travel and experience more of life.
Pluto in Capricorn relates to money and wealth. This reminds us that some people – with their desire for attainment of their goals – will unfortunately step on others along the way. The ego can be strong with Pluto in Capricorn. If you want to see what someone is really like, you’ll see it when they are dealing with money. How people attain money and what they do with it when they have plenty, speaks volumes about what kind of person they are when they feel they have more power in their pockets.
Pluto stationing Direct has us considering big changes. While retrograde purging of what isn’t working or worthwhile is in more focus. When direct, it is the use of power, and building and rising anew that is in focus. Consider it like the symbolism of the Phoenix descending into the underworld, burning away the past to be transformed and rising to soar in the skies renewed.
As mentioned, this is a mid-point in the sign, and we are moving forward from here, but Pluto will go retrograde many more times between now and 2024, so we have lots of strong changes in politics, finance and business that are still to come.
I am going to talk a lot more about this as we get closer to Pluto stationing direct in the Weekly Horoscopes.
With Mercury now retrograde in Virgo, extra attention to what politicians and those who operate businesses are saying is highlighted. There can be a trickster, sneaky quality to words and messages, so it is a good idea to look deeper for facts and clarity. If you are looking at refinancing or reapplying read the fine print clearly before you sign anything.
On September 27, 2016 Mars enters Capricorn and will remain in Capricorn until November 9th. There will definitely be lots of tension in politics and business leading up to and during the election.
There’s also going to be a New Moon very close to Mercury in Scorpio on October 30, 2016. Scorpio is a sign of a lot of psychological tension and dramatic behavior, and is also ruled by Pluto and Mars. Lots of hidden information can set us on a new path.
By looking at all this, it’s obvious that the time around the election is going to be intense with a lot of clashing egos. Even though that’s a given for any election, the astrology supports it heavily this time around. The need for more stability is going to be highly evident.
Remember that Neptune in Pisces brings more emotional sensitivity and can encourage a more spiritual perspective on life. Much of what is changing in the world in politics and business with Pluto in Capricorn, has an influence on our spiritual lives, and vice versa. Amidst the changes in the material world, higher consciousness is needed.
The next few months will be interesting. You can access your inner world of resources at any time to help you find peace when the external, physical world is overbearing, distracting and egocentric.
