Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn is coming. Is anxiety about Saturn into Capricorn from December 2017 warranted? No, not at all. Not in my opinion. I don’t read much work by other astrologers – not enough time and well, you know, my Mercury is in Aries. But I have picked up on a general theme of “Saturn is Coming” relayed in ominous tones, much like “Winter is Coming,” if you are a Game of Thrones fan.
In that series, the mythical but broadly medieval/magical land of Westeros is threatened by a Winter unlike any other, terrifically long and complete with a threatening army of zombie white walkers. Is Saturn in Capricorn anything remotely like such an event? Obviously not. And yet not a week goes by where i do not receive some sort of concerned email about it.
I think some people are letting their dislike of certain rulers in the world – currently – get between them and their take on the astrology.
Grace Jones and Walt Whitman Are Both Natal Saturn Pluto People
This will be dealt with more depth as we get nearer December but honestly, what is not to like about Saturn in Capricorn? It is Saturn in its home sign. It is going to be augmented by Uranus in Taurus. And, for a while, Jupiter in Scorpio. It’s going to conjoin Pluto in Capricorn, which will intensify the pair of them.
If you were to talk about such a hook-up on a personal level, it would be a success indicator. Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn is a knuckle the fuq down and without any pretensions, get on with it transit. It would be the death knell of any idiotic delusions or that a dysfunctional relationship was somehow sustainable.
It would be a power-up of your most potent and ferocious resolve. Some people who were born with Saturn conjunct Pluto FYI: Arnold Schwarzenegger. Paolo Coelho. Queen Victoria. Orson Welles. Edward Snowden. Hedy Lamarr. Grace Jones. Walt Whitman. Macklemore. Danielle Steele. Brian Eno. Al Gore. Jonas Salk. George Eliot.
You may not align with the sensibility of all of them, but these are not flimsy people. Just watch the Snowden movie for an example of Saturn-Pluto spirit in action.
Saturn-Pluto = True Grit and wise, visionary leadership. So okay, you might be thinking, maybe no army of zombies emerging from some esoteric outlands but what if the whole planet goes to hell in a hand-basket? The recent news flow has indeed been particularly gruesome and discomforting, regardless of your political affiliation. But astrologically, the most significant chance of global conflict was during the Zap Zone of Uranus square Pluto over 2012 until 2015.
Saturn Conjunct Pluto In Capricorn Is True Grit and Visionary Leadership – Perhaps More Ours Than The Actual Leaders
Purely off the planetary alignments, the arrival of Saturn in Capricorn would seem to more herald a forced reassess of the Central Bank model of running economies and endless low-interest rate fueled debt/ asset price rise even as the rest of the economy falters. If you think about Uranus in Taurus, it would be a lot more aligned with organic food and agricultural reforms than anything else. These two will be in sync – a new Earth Vibe is entering in from early 2018.
We all pray for and wish good, strong leadership in all regards upon our world – particularly in diplomacy and economic management. Saber rattling and kicking the can down the road for short term political gain at the expense of long term stability and the opportunity to pursue prosperity for all humanity is crap policy.
Foundation Over Short-Term Buzz
But the brilliant thing about Saturn-Pluto in Capricorn augmented by Uranus in Taurus (this is 2018 on) is that it DOES suggest wise leadership. And even if we are not sure precisely where that is going to come from if we peruse the news at the moment, WE can adopt the values of wisdom and accountability.
Rather than fearing Saturn in Capricorn, we can embody its higher values: Investing in what will last — building strong foundations. Fortifying positive alliances and retaining revenue rather than going into debt to keep a bubble inflated or buy status. And, caring for our resources – which include health, energy, and money – sagaciously — not sacrificing well being and sound policy for a short term buzz.
