I am not a total believer in Astrology but I think it is interesting. Even if it is not "true," it can be a metaphor for the age, or a way to organize
our understandings of metaphysical phenomena. Like a good myth, astrology it contains truth and can be read esoterically even if the over-all factual
nature is limited. So, I am not really interested in arguing its “truth” or “falseness,” which is boring to me. This thread assumes it is
"true for the sake of argument" and views astrology on an esoteric or philosophical level. You might approach the subject matter like me, to be
skeptical, and still enjoy thinking about this in a "possible" way, or maybe you are a true believer.
Above: The astrological chart for the entry of Pluto into the House of Capricorn
This thread is about "Pluto in Capricorn" or “Pluto in the House of Capricorn” which is to say, the planet (considered by some not to be a planet
anymore - we will return to this soon below) of Pluto as seen from earth appears to be against the background of the constellation of Capricorn. This
state of affairs began in 2008 (some sources say 2006) and lasts through the year 2023 (some sources say 2022). Pluto takes about 248 earth-years to
circle around the sun. The last time it was in Capricorn, then, was in the middle of the 18th century. The world then was changing too. It was an era
of wars, revolutions, rising and falling powers. New ways of conceiving of money and power birth of Capitalism, the Enlightenment, the Revolution in
America, the final death-spiral of the Ancien Regime in France, and so on. Some darkness, some light. A time of change and bold new “awakenings.”
Now my research is limited, but I will first present the pieces of the puzzle for I) Capricorn, then for II) Pluto. Then III.) I will offer a few
clues about what this maybe means, and open up the discussion for other people to say what they want to say. I hope we can work together
solve the puzzle!
From my limited researches, these are some associations I found on Capricorn:
Capricorn is “master of the physical realm.” It is a “cardinal earth sign.” It has implications of social control. Associations include
leadership, dominance, and conservatism. It seems to be associated with Systems of Economics and Government
. In other words it is a heavy
political sign. Control, force, realpolitik, the mechanisms of dominance and power.
From my limited researches, these are some associations I found on Pluto:
Pluto seems to be associating with hiddenness, darkness, collective unconsciousness. The unspeakable, that which we cannot talk of, the
unseen.Death-wish and the gateway into darkness. Also, hell/mythos underworld. Also strong associations with money
and the forces of money in
society (“plutocrats”). Other sources have Pluto as a kind of “liberating destroyer,” a purifier, a cleanser. Chaos
is a strong
association. The cleansing fires of chaos and destruction, paving the way for a new era?
III) Pluto in Capricorn
It is interesting that “TPTB” declassified Pluto as a planet in 2006, saying it was no longer a legitimate planet right before it
entered into the House of Capricorn
. Why would they do that? Why would they want to deligitimze Pluto as a planet right at that particular
in the star cycle? Do they want to hide the knowledge of what Pluto-in-Capricorn means from us? By removing Pluto as a planet, are
they trying to wipe out knowledge of this event?
And what does it mean when Pluto enters the House of Capricorn, anyway?
This long but interesting read
has this to say:
Pluto's entrance into Capricorn signifies that the common and collective human need for social-political notions of "Law and Order" which provide
us with comfortable feelings of "objective" security is yielding to Nature's much more perplexing revelations as to what constitutes her own "rules"
for real and vibrant Life.
I offer no answers, I am a seeker like you. Shall we brainstorm together on this topic?
