PLUTO is the slow moving outer planet that brings transformation, shifts in power and perspective ...now moving forward in Capricorn. PLUTO is extra strong for the next eight weeks, gearing up to change zodiac signs into Aquarius, at the end of January 2024. This powerful intense energy causes political turbulence, right wing shifts and u-turns in government policies around the world so watch the news and pay attention to the changes in the money markets!! . PLUTO takes 248 years to go around the Heavens and the last time he was here in Aquarius in 1778 to 1798, he created all sorts of progressive changes in our society, rebellion and revolutions against out moded structures, development in the sciences, new ways of thinking and concepts around human rights, psychology, politics and freedom. We'll all have to wait until he's finished tidying up all those political changes and rebalanced the global power structures later next year. Pluto pushes us inwards to examine our own ego, power needs, Shadow personality, possessive emotions, sense of belonging ... and then brings us to Rebirth, arising with like the Phoenix with new values and aspirations for living.
There is a highly useful and positive Alliance between NEPTUNE and PLUTO, a lovely slow moving aspect that’s there all through December, connecting us all with compassion and empathy for other human beings. NEPTUNE has been walking backwards for many months but on the 6th December NEPTUNE moves into more positive mode, making us all more aware that we are all linked and it's time to 'give peace a chance'.
JUPITER, the KING of the PLANETS and Ruler of Expansion, travel, entertainment and learning is RETROGRADE in Taurus until New Year's Eve at the end of December. JUPITER RETROGRADE likes to stand still and integrate past experiences, so plans are likely to be slow coming into being and take persistence! JUPITER is RETROGRADE from the 4th September to NEW YEAR'S EVE offering the chance to go over schemes, review learning and shift the vision to align with new values and beliefs. By the 1st January, just when you are busy writing out your NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS JUPITER says OK we can all move forward now too!
MARS the FIERY WARRIOR is marching through Sagittarius this month squaring to SATURN for the first few weeks to push us all into being busy, on the move and carring responsibilities for others. MARS gets frustrated with anything that blocks his way with rules and regulations ... and then later in the month ... with NEPTUNE messing up networks and causing misunderstandings. Take your own fire levels down with some exercise ... sit by a fire, burn a candle and stay active! You can use this period to work on your body, flexibility, stretching and creating happy endorphins to whizz around your body.
SATURN the GREAT TEACHER and CONTROLLER, is still plodding along in Pisces re-organising how we connect to each other, educations system and health care. SATURN will put fresh structures in place for artists and teachers ... healers and carers!
MERCURYin Capricorn is RETROGRADE again on 14th December for three weeks, messing with communications, networks and technology and slipping slowly backwards into Sagittarus on the 24th. Finally he turns around on the 2nd January to start putting all those disruptions back into order.
