The Saturn Pluto alignment is the sort of astro-fuqery that gets our attention. It’s the dominant player of Astrology 2019, sets the scene for 2020 and resonates back to the Eighties.
Energetically it feels like Darth Vader on ketamine. It’s jaw spasming at the latest neo-lib injustice in the media and feeling like time’s either too fast or too slow. You’re stuck on hold waiting for the state between existential ennui and being frazzled. It conjures up doubts that you can’t wave away with an airy gesture.
Yes, I’m talking about the Saturn-Pluto alignment, again. Stage One is hating it, Stage Two is learning not to hate it, and Stage Three recognizes that it has apparent advantages. Namely, that between now and Feb 2020, everything is going to change. See Freak-in About The Economy for more on that one. But that everything goading you right now or at 3 A.M. is material for your restructure job. And that if you act on it, you will be well-positioned.
The most vital info is in my Mp3 Rant and this post here. But this post is an opportunity to share where you’re at with it. I’m also going to answer a few pertinent f.a.qs about this Karma-Cop/Change God Hook-Up.
Saturn Pluto Alignment Questions Answered
If I Am Having Saturn Return This Year Or Next, How Does This Affect It?
The shallow version is that it will intensify it. You’re having Saturn Return with Pluto also on or near your natal Saturn. It’s amped. If you were born in 1990, you’re in Saturn Return mode, and if you’re a 1961 baby, it is your second Saturn Return. You would be ultra-conscious of your entire life narrative, complete with crucial themes, triumphs, and defeats. And if you’re operating beneath your actual power levels, maturity or capability than situations erupt that compel you to lift your game. The proximity of Uncle Pluto merely means that whatever morph you pull off will be spectacular and even more psychologically resonant than it would otherwise have been.
It also raises the chance that your Phoenix stunt won’t just be via Saturnine grunt and focus; it will play out via relationship. Remember; Saturn transits get better as you get older. Saturn is the Time God.
If You’re Born In 1982, It Is The Most Important Astrological Passage That You Will Ever Experience
I Am A Capricorn – Does That Mean I Will Have A Worse/Weirder Time With Saturn Conjunct Pluto?
No! But it’s time to double down on the best qualities of Capricorn: Old Magic, respect for the planet, methodical management, and stoic wisdom. January 12 to 20 born Capricorns are the It People of this alignment. If that is you, you’re working on three levels at the moment. (1) Feeling spiritually guided, (2) Scorning a lot of the people and substances that once sustained you and (3) Focused on pulling off your version of a work or health feat. You do not imagine it – you do have more gravitas, and it is repelling people who are more scattered.
How Does This Work When You’re Born In 1982?
That was the last time Saturn and Pluto met. They were close all year but exact conjunct in November. That was in Libra and the conjunction exact on January 2020 – on an Eclipse, may I add – will be square that one. So it’s monumental for you. It’s the worst time to be inauthentic or passive about letting things play out or looking for an outside savior. But if you target your innate force towards refined goals that you are in alignment with, you manifest powers that you did not suspect you had. You have Saturn square Saturn, Pluto square Saturn, Saturn square Pluto and Pluto square Pluto transits concurrently.
It is the most intense and vital astrological passage that you will ever experience, and it will be the making of you. The pressure is relentless, and no doubt, you were quite fond of certain elements that you’re ousting from your life. But something sleeping deep within you is waking up; the treasure you want is within. You can attain ambitions that you would barely have contemplated before now. By the time this thing is over, you’d probably cross the road to avoid the person you were before April.
How Do I Know Where It Is Affecting Me In My Personal Natal Chart?
The Mp3 Rant has broad solar house indicators which are useful but not precise. It’s 20 to 26 degrees of Capricorn and if you’re not sure what that influences in your chart, get a transit report and scan for every mention of Saturn or Pluto. That’s your zone.
Is It Normal To Find This Astro Triggering?
God, yes. Change on this level is confronting, both societally and personally. It’s hard to be agile and reinventive when the atmosphere evokes tectonic emotions within your psyche. But in times of epochal change, it’s better to launch into fortifying or building the foundation for your new era. It feels more laborious, but it is ultimately easier than cozying up to a lie or trying to will the mirage into being more substantial.
