At first, Pluto conjunct the South Node for the next four weeks feels stuck. It’s leaden inertia. Psychically, it can be as heavy as hell.
But that phase is temporary. Pluto here unlocks a subliminal vault. Inside are hot secrets and shady aspects of your past.
Out they come and boy do they have a story to tell. It also, btw, applies more broadly to society at large.
Anything with an aura of shame can become a source of strength, like monsters in fairy tales which turn out to have been under a dark spell the whole time.
Monsters Freed Owe You A Favor
And whatever aspect of you that was bad enough to warrant lock-up in your vault probably has wildness you can use around about now.
Meanwhile, satisfyingly, Pluto conjunct the South Node will evoke a steady stream of sordid sex + money + power machinations bought into the light of day. It’s begun already.
The Ivy League admissions scandal, for example. The exposure of it was pure Mercury Retro square Jupiter, with Mercury symbolizing media and Jupiter being growth/aspiration/higher education.
But really, it’s signature is Plutonic. Secret financial transactions to secure your offspring power they were unable to generate via work, ingenuity the security of having sprung from wealth.
Secret Financial Transactions Are Absolute Pluto
At the moment, the emphasis is on the actresses involved, probably because the story is already an Aaron Sorkin vehicle in the making. But there are bound to be more exciting secrets stored in this particular vault.
And, just as Pluto conjunct the South Node was within orb, a senior member of the Catholic Church was found guilty of child sex assault. His current residence is a sharp contrast to the decades of regalia, pomp and vintage plonk swilled from golden goblets.
But that story has more to reveal.
The South Node in Capricorn is symbolically the patriarchy, and the origin of the name Pluto is “rich father” F.Y.I. Vaults are opening all over Gaia.
So maybe it’s time to go and have a look inside yours? It’s undoubtedly the optimal astro for it.
