Saturn Square Pluto need not be a shitstorm. Seriously. But it is definitely the time to make rad changes in the structures around you: Your beliefs, your goals & systems. Things change during this particular alignment and yes, it is associated with geopolitical turmoil.
This Saturn Square Pluto situation began last November, perfects the middle bit of its cycle on Feb 1 and completes in August. So you look back to events/emo of last November for clues if you need to. Intensity is the norm with this thing – as is a savage urge to tear down what feels moribund and build up from zero. It has a distinct ruthless vibe to it and it is totally not the time to fuq with anyone.
So – yes to drastic reforms and realizations. No to goading tyrannical or extreme types. The maximum stress from this sort of aspect comes from clinging onto ye olde ideas or relationships that have had their day & you know it. Note the timing: There’s a Full Moon in drama-queenie Leo right before the Saturn-Pluto square is exact. So it’s theatrical too.
Any little resentments/sensations of feeling crowded et al will out themselves & in total Leonic scenary-chewing fashion. It’s not astrology for wimps & nor is it the time for sooky-goo-goo sentimental nostalgia.
