Pluto In Scorp Wants To Know

“Hey Mystic- question for you

What role do you see us Pluto in Scorpio kids playing in the drama of Pluto in Capricorn/Zap Zone? Yes, the #occupy movement is huge, but feels more like Pluto in Libra IMHO. Surely we don’t have to just sit back and watch our world burn, and then pick up the pieces?

Sincerely, a very Frustrated Arian Gemini…”

GOOD question. And i don’t have an easy answer. Do any of you guys reading this? I do think that the rage felt toward the Pluto in Leo generation (essentially, baby boomers) by Gen X is going to be nothing compared to the clash between the Pluto in Scorpio and Pluto in Leo generations.

FYI:Β  Pluto was in Leo from 1938 to 1958 and Pluto was in Scorpio from 1983 to 1995. Pluto Generations resonate with various eras. Within these Pluto generations, there are sub-groups. Such as the Pluto in Virgo peeps born with Uranus-Pluto conjunct or the Pluto in Scorps with Neptune-Uranus conjunct.

Arguably, the Pluto in Leo generation created a lot of the debt bubble and must-have consciousness that is now bursting. The Zap Zone is Demolition Astro (see previous posts in the Astro Global Economic Fuqery for more on this) and the tearing-down corrupt structures phase of it is just beginning.

Pluto is MOST powerful in the sign of Scorpio. No way is your generation going to sit around and watch anything, right? i think it’s more likely you will play a major part in the rebuild; fierce, uncompromising and operating in an an environment where a lot of the benefits the Pluto in Leo lot thrived on are just not there for you.

The other day i read that Gen Y aka Pluto in Scorp peeps are shunning debt – that’s part of it. You were kids when the Twin Towers fell and now have graduated into a situation where the entire financial system is apparently shonky. So if you’re right about the #Occupy movement being essentially Pluto in Libra (and maybe some Pluto in Virgos?) then you guys are going to be doing New Business, New Politics, New Art, New Everything.

Thoughts?

This is the first time I’ve commented, but I couldn’t help it. I live in Boston and am friends with some Occupiers. They are mostly all Pluto in Scorpio. I am not, I am Pluto in Virgo and want to get out there with them, but somehow haven’t done it. When I went to visit Occupy Boston, they were all in their early 20’s! And my Occupy Facebook friends from New York are the same. There are certainly older people here and there, but this movement belongs to Pluto in Scorpio. And keep watching, they are going to get stronger.

Is it anything to do with time responsibilities, like jobs/business/fam that prevent the Pluto in V people from becoming so involved, do you think? Or is it something else?

all I have to say is, I am happily pluto in Scorpio. Nothing to justify, and really no interest in the inter-generational “conflict”. Still, I’ll speak to it. I see Pluto in Leo as very close to us ideologically. For better or worse, we are fixed, and we get each other in a very innate way. I have a boomer friend with a strong Leo Pluto who is one of the greatest instructors and critical thinkers I have ever met. His opinion is one of the only ones I really listen to. It carries the weight of years of experience,… Read more »

This is so awesomely immediately culturally relevant. I’m going to share it on all my social networks right away.

I was thinking – there is something else I’ve consistently noticed about Pluto in Scorpios beyond their passion for whole foods and sexual exploration – its a very cultured generation. I mean, my parents were from Toledo, Ohio. That’s it. And I was where I was from. But you guys are culture voyuers, explorers. It makes sense given the online experience your gen has.

Anyway…thanks for the link!

I watched this the other night, Sassy, it’s brilliant, a great way to overcome the generation gap, I thought. The teenagers were just so genuine and good, and it was so good to see the communication and rapport building up between the two groups. Very touching when the young lass had to leave the room in tears as the plight of the guy paralysed completed reminded her of her father’s dying days. Got a bit weepy myself. Great viewing, highly recommended to you all.

Just watching it now. Had a very close loving relationship with my Nan. We were very close. She taught me to be kind and respectful to the elderly. (Also taught me how to play poker, lololol)

They have so much wisdom and we lock all this wisdom up in elderly homes… Maybe we need to be a more family oriented, not so individualistic, maybe turning that way now since young people are staying at home anyways…

Let me try my amateur astrologer hat on here: Neptune & Uranus are outter planets. That means they apply to the collective consciousness. What was going on collectively at that time – in the act of looking backwards – is projection. It has a cultural bias, naturally. In my cultural lens, it was the year Bill Clinton was innagurated. The Internet still wasn’t widely adopted from a user point and business was struggling to make a model (ie profit) off what it could be. I had just graduate high school, and everyone was telling Gen Xers that they were slackers… Read more »

Shit, really, looking back, I went from an English Lit major who everyone asked “What are you gonna do, teach?” to making so much money my Pluto-in-Cancer Dad told me not to lie about my qualifications. It was a booming job market – unprecedented – a new digital frontier to conquer. My salary doubled from one job to the next. Then it tanked because it was stupid and dreamy and imagined all kinds of business scenarios that didn’t pan out. By 2000, it was unemployed. Changed industries.

er, I just meant the conjunction nataly, the actual event I think culminated in the cd which lead to lots of other things, but its hard to distinguish because after the conjunction neptune was in aquarius while uranus was in pisces for a bit, which seams to engender a similar effect. I was just referring to the energies in the chart, hard for me to fathom

12th house Virgo
12th house Virgo

Well, I was happy to recall the context of the boom and burst. I forgot about that actually. It all happened so quickly. Time moves faster now. And the authority so many seek only exists in the self. We have so much to create, so many tools to create with, and no way of judging the meaning of an action until its complete.

I’d say, Neptune in Capricorn would have a illusions around power. Yet, personally for you, it depends on the house and other aspects in your natal chart.

David5379

neptune and uranus are the two most confusing planets, so hard to understand together ha

12th house Virgo

They’re transpersonal. So, it seems to me when Netpune of Uranus is working in your chart you just have to kind of go with the flow of them. But, you seem like a person who knows what he’s about. Stay grounded in that, don’t judge yourself or court the judgement of others, and you’ll rock all your energy to the utmost! Good luck to you.

Thanks for the looking and the asking. I starting taking self portraits after I got divorced and realized I wasn’t in the family photos. It was like I didn’t exist.

It all seemed absurd and I thought people in white coats would come to take me away. But they didn’t. And, who knew, I am terminally sane. It could be a longer story.

It isn’t just a tool for reproduction and motivating people into living/dying for a single family home. That’s not natural, that’s centuries of social conditioning. Human sexual freedom is a subtext to the whole economic fuqery – our human resources are used as tools by the economy – sexuality included. I long for… Read more »

Probably this thread is dead already, but being a late bloomer, thought I would add this: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generations_(book) This amaaazing book analyses the generations and how they interact. They term Pluto in Scorp ‘millenials’ and say they are real team players, adhere to the hero archetype and depend on and trust in institutions (unlike gen x who only trust themselves). They say the boomers love to scrap but in fact the millenials prefer peace at any cost? It’s very fascinating, I would like to know how truthfully it plays out in reality over time.

I think its impossible not to take a cynical view of ourselves and each other when we allow our framework to be defined by materialist, marketing thinking. For example, I read about a study that shows Gen Xers rely on search whereas Gen Yers rely on social networks to help them make a product choice. The idea is that if you want to sell to Gen X, you give them helpful information. If you want to sell to Gen Y, you get their friends to talk about it. The idea, framed by marketing language, is that Gen Y are a… Read more »

But the “trust in institutions” bit is what really concerns me. When I worked with Gen Yers, I was amazed by their expectations. They thought the government knew what it was doing – we are the USA after all – certainly we have all the latest and greatest gadgets at work for our governement! The truth is, we are still locked in stove-piped, paper-based institutions where the right hand doesn’t know what the left is doing. They may want to trust institions, but they are rapidly finding out that’s impossible now.

Andromeda

You make a good point about how we frame ourselves and according to whom. It is natural for the young to trust too.

“Generations” describes a cyclical theory of history based on repeating generational archetypes. It examines Anglo-American history by dividing it into saecula, or seasonal cycles of history. A saeculum is about 90 years long – the length of a long human life – and is further divided into four “Turnings” that are about 22 years long – as long as the period between birth and adulthood. Children raised during a particular Turning share similar historical and cultural experiences, resulting in distinct generational types. The book suggests that interactions between generations explains why major crises occur roughly every 90 years (e.g. 1773… Read more »

Anyway, there is more floating around on the net about it, but like the Mayan calendar I would imagine it would make more sense if it had an accelerated cycle these days!
