As a fellow traveler to the east and a practicing astrologer – cum – reincarnated high priest of the ancient, I would like to share some articles by known astrologers, Alethea of Empowered Destiny.com and Astrology Readings by Leslie Hale, about the meaning of the transits of saturn, pluto and soon to join jupiter through the constellation of Capricorn which is very timely considering the events unfolding in our craft particularly Philippine Masonry.
Hope we contemplate and review our travel why all these things are happening.
“Long-term sustainability” is more than just some trendy catchphrase; it’s a concept we all need to be deeply considering during Pluto in Capricorn. Why? Pluto represents the principle of destruction and when it inhabits the enduring sign of The Goat we do need to be very careful about things that degrade the long-term sustainability of something in our lives; particularly if it involves our career, professional field as a whole, status, or reputation and DOUBLY so if the cause of this potential ruin stems from any ethically funky conduct.
Capricorn likes to build things up, but Pluto razes them to the ground and there is a “deconstructed” feel to Pluto in Capricorn overall; especially when it comes to uncovering the basic framework or modeling that makes a current (business?) model of something unworkable in the long run. It becomes increasingly important to consider how viable something is in its present form while being nuclear conscious of the way(s) in which the energy we’re putting into that particular venture is either going to enrich or undermine it. And with Saturn soon entering Capricorn and approaching a conjunction with Pluto in the not-too-distant future (Jan 2020), ambitions can become intensified in such a way that we may lock onto the goal of ascending to the summit at all costs. The very last thing we want to do ahead of this kind of astro is to build upon the wrong foundation, because to topple from that kind of height can be devastating at the least and perhaps even lethal in a worst-case scenario.
Obviously, averting this kind of outcome is highly advisable – to do this we must first consider WHAT we’re using our power for and HOW we’re using it (hint: ethically and responsibly are always pretty good places to start). We must be mindful of the energy we’re directing toward our image/brand and take seriously any threats that stand to detract from our reputation. Integrity – especially in a professional sense – is absolutely critical; it’s when we try to cheat and take shortcuts to success, compromise our standards for greed or because we’re terrified we “won’t make it” otherwise, and do not respect our limitations that we get into trouble. This energy hits professionals of all stripes, but I do think it’s likely be harder on business owners, teachers, and law enforcement in general and we really must pause to consider how anything we do might reflect badly upon our profession as a whole. Holding ourselves to the highest possible standard and considering the mark we’re leaving on the world (which hopefully doesn’t amount to a stain) is critical; under this energy it is better to ditch a career path or fold up a business if the alternative involves disgrace – the refusal to do something that damages self-respect is the most reliable litmus test for integrity, always.
If one is involved in the law enforcement field, this is a mighty important time to be examining any potential power and/or control complexes within that compel us to seek authority over others – get that shit sorted out NOW because the karmic retribution is likely to be terrible if/when our unexamined psychological baggage leads to a misuse/abuse of position. Those who teach in any capacity must be prepared to make sure they are stringently qualified to specialize in the areas they plan to teach, because illegitimacy may be a real issue under this energy while also respecting the integrity of the fundamental foundations of these subjects – this is not a time to get all loosey-goosey and teach a corrupted version of something we’ve learned because this would amount to tainting the wisdom. Distill it down into something more potent while staying true to the core teachings by all means, but do not veer toward irreverent disregard for the System (whatever that may be) or tried-and-true keystone(s) that have withstood the test of time. It’s also a time to consider very careful WHAT tools you are giving to WHOM – for example, this would not be the time to put occult teachings in the wrong hands. And be prepared to accept responsibility for what you’re passing down to students, for they are your legacy. Supervise them to ensure the wisdom and tools you instill within are handled respectfully and responsibly so they prove a credit to the teachings, because under this energy it’s easier than normal – if this caution is not heeded – to wind up pumping out a student who not only reflects badly upon YOUR good name, but it also circles back to the earlier point I made about not degrading the long-term sustainability of one’s field as a whole by giving it a bad reputation (ex: a “quack” psychologist or one that is going into the field for the wrong reasons/has not worked through their own psychological baggage). Business owners, on the other hand, may find themselves having to make some tough calls that affect the integrity and/or survivability of their biz/business model. Remember what I said before: It’s better to take a loss or fold a company than compromise our standards, credibility, or ethics under this vibe – in the long run, we are likely to be screwed far harder for doing so.
STAR STRUCK CHRONICLES
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven”
Saturn has entered Capricorn: building foundations and structures
Saturn is known as the taskmaster, or the Lord of Karma and the Great teacher to name a few.Without Saturn we have no stability in life. It shows us both our structures and our boundaries.
Saturn changes signs about every two and a half years, and takes about 30 years to circle through the entire zodiac. Saturn entered Sagittarius December 2014, and remains there another five and a half months.
December 19, 2017 Saturn enters Capricorn where it will remain until March 23, 2020
Saturn in Capricorn is far different than Saturn in Sagittarius where it currently lies. Saturn in Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, and is the ninth house ruler, the place of ideas and philosophies (politics included). Saturn in Capricorn is at home in this sign.
When Saturn enters Capricorn we will all begin a new cycle and chapter altogether, both individually and collectively.
Capricorn is a no frills sign and deals with power, business and structure. Saturn here is concerned with security and structure, tradition, organization, big business and defense. If left unchecked, big business can become the new Gods of the Universe as Saturn moves through this sign.
Saturn in Capricorn can denote great wealth but also great limitations. Saturn was in Capricorn during the worst part of the Great Depression in the early 1930’s. The rich got richer, and the poor got poorer.
The last transit of Saturn in Capricorn was from February 15, 1988 until February 5, 1991. Before that it was January of 1959-January of 1962, and December 1929-November 1932.
While in Capricorn, Saturn will build things that are meant to inspire respect (or intimidation) as much as anything else. The Berlin wall for example, began construction under a Jupiter-Saturn conjunction (August 31, 1961). It was meant to be a political symbol to keep some people in their place. We will experience another Jupiter /Saturn conjunction, considered to be an important new cycle, especially in mundane astrology in 2020.
In 2020 Pluto will conjunct Saturn at 22 degrees of Capricorn and this will bring an entire new cycle. In reality, this will be a dangerous time in the world, where many things can and will happen. Events leading up to this period will begin long before the aspect becomes exact.
Saturn-Pluto will relate to the established power structures and ruling elite versus the common people, potential nuclear events and restriction on many levels. We could see a worldwide recession. This is a restrictive transit and we will see these restrictions play out on many levels in the world and in our personal lives. This transit will affect all of those individuals with cardinal planets 20-24 degrees.
Saturn conjunct Pluto will be a stressful period and can indicate limitation, financial loss, potential war and change and transformation. Many things will change at this time or be transformed, or end all together. It will not be easy.
The last time Saturn was conjunct Pluto was in Libra June-July 1983. During this time we saw unemployment rise in the US to the highest level since 1941. Europe was dealing with the IRA, Ethiopia appealed to the world for aid when death tolls from hunger reached 4 million, the US invaded Grenada, the Philippine leader was assassinated, the US embassy in Beirut was destroyed by a suicide bomber killing 63, and Ronald Regan proposed Strategic defense initiative to name just a few world events at this time.
The positive side of this combination can relate to industrial infrastructure, science and engineering and a deeper understanding of things like genetics and physics. Some things can be transformed for the better.
The negative side is not going to be a piece of cake: tyranny, the abuse of power and corruption, organized crime and criminal activities, nuclear incidents, power struggles, recessions, issues with the monetary system and banks, and war, and limitation on many levels.
I will write more about this in the future. But, my advice to clients is to pay off all the debt you can now, and save, save, save.
Those most affected in a challenging way by Saturn in Capricorn will be the Cardinal signs-Aries (square), Cancer (opposition), Libra (square) and Capricorn (conjunct), or those who have planets in cardinal signs.
When Saturn enters your sign (Capricorn) it can denote a stressful period. Many things end and a new situation is often born on the ruins of the old. Typically, I tell clients with Saturn in your own sign you will be re-creating yourself in some way as Saturn crosses your Sun.
Those who will fare the best will be those born under the earth and some water signs-Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, Pisces or planets in these signs. In this case you can experience slow and stable growth.
