Nobody can accuse the Saturn/Pluto conjunction of slacking off. Of course, it’s in Capricorn, so exceeding expectations is part of the deal.
I have done dozens of posts on this thing, and this recent take is the most somber. I would leave it there but people are apparently interested in the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – more specifically, is this a Saturn and Pluto linked event?
Yes, in that their decision to step away from the Royal Family, copping a heap of snark, is a fuq you to the established order. Aside from the darkly amusing concept of ‘financial independence’ constituting of only your millions in inheritance loot, it is touching. Saturn, Pluto and the Eclipse are all in a favourable aspect to Prince Harry’s Virgo Sun and Taurus Moon. Prince Harry lost his mother with Saturn opposite his Venus and square his Capricorn Ascendant. You need not be a rabid conspiracy theorist to describe the circumstances as murky.
At the time of her death, Princess Diana was on the verge of letting rip with her natal Mars-Pluto and Uranus-North Node powers, leveraging her unparalleled media clout to combat hypocrisy and oppression. She would have been the ultimate influencer. Pluto was approaching her Sagittarius Ascendant; who could have shut her up? Saturn had also just crossed his Lilith – with its themes of renegade women, exiles, Madonna-Whore complex, and more. And in August 1997, Pluto was square his Mercury; a savage induction into secrets and power.
The Saturn/Pluto Conjunction Catalyst Effective In Overdrive
Having your wife and the mother of your child endure more scrutiny and ill comment than your uncle who the F.B.I. is investigating as part of an enquiry into sex trafficking underage girls would be a catalyst. The BBC interview with him would probably have cinched the deal. The Saturn/Pluto conjunction is squaring Meghan Markle’s Pluto in Libra. It’s doing so from her Descendant, the threshold of her relationship sector. At 21 Libra, it’s close to Harry’s Venus and Princess Diana’s Midheaven, AKA the most public point of her natal birth chart.
The silencing or failure to validate Virginia Giuffre would echo earlier injustices, as might the alleged Rose Hanbury affair. Meghan Markle is no stranger to complex and painful family dynamics. The Saturn/Pluto conjunction of 1982 squared her Ascendant FYI and was when her mother struck out on her own. Both the Duchess and her husband have announced that they want to be more, not less, politically active. When you grow up skirting around unmentionable subjects, it’s like an electrified domestic zone. There is no haven.
New parenthood and the Saturn-Pluto pressure would push for a definitive line, an alternative court. Her favourite book is apparently Don Miguel Ruiz’s The Four Agreements:
“Wherever you go you will find people lying to you, and as your awareness grows, you will notice that you also lie to yourself. Do not expect people to tell you the truth because they also lie to themselves. You have to trust yourself and choose to believe or not to believe what someone says to you.”
She has Mercury, the North Node, and Sun in Leo; she needs to represent her truth. Princess Diana had Uranus conjunct the North Node in Leo. 2020 would have been Diana’s second Saturn Return, and it will most definitely be Ghislaine Maxwell’s.
Ghost Flights And Structural Instability
But Princess Diana is not the only ghost gloating about (I meant to say floating but I am keeping this Freudian typo.)The sad news of Flight 752 downed in Iran raises the melancholy spectres of Lockerbie, Flight 655 and TWA 800. The South Node now is on the Saturn of Lockerbie. If you are an astro-fiend and you ever want to awe yourself with spooky across time connections, look at Saturn and South Nodes hook-ups.
In our personal lives, we’re reassessing pacts made with ourselves long ago. It’s the same with societies and governments. Time collapses like a wormhole short-cut in a sci-fi movie when Pluto is directly influencing Saturn like this.
This Saturn/Pluto conjunction, boosted by the Lunar Eclipse, is a watershed moment. I did not know what a watershed was until today. It is a geographic term for a ridge of mountains or earth that directs water to flow in different directions. Although, if the politicians charged with protecting Australia’s environment were managing it, they’d sell the rights to the rivers and mine the mountains, hitting the taxpayers up for the bill to clean up the toxins in the now dry riverbed. And water would be not so much an essential element for life on earth as it would be a unit in the Futures market.
