Weakness, Death, Survival,
This has been a fascinating Saturn-Uranus opposition, unlike anything I could have predicted, and by the time the last one comes at 0 Aries, a lot of awareness will be under the belt. People are beginning to feel like they've been had by the change in government, and this is probably accurate in terms of the larger picture. The Neptunian delusion was a requirement, but now the awakening is occurring. It's not the personalities. It's not the parties. I can't begin to tell you how far beyond these details it is. I can't say it enough -- Pluto just got started in Capricorn. 250 years of cause and effect have to be tackled and we're in the 12th house part of the return cycle. The part of undoing.
The government is as good as dead, and resurrection is leaving the stage as an option. There could be some last gasps, but the bloating and sickness have gone too far, and the attempt now is being made to shore up the dying entity, stuffing it further with trillions until it suffocates. It's torturing itself. It refuses to accept its fate, as the same habits that led to its downfall are grasped helplessly, leaders knowing nothing else. Of course I allow for quirks of fate, so nothing is written in stone. It could recover. Anything can happen. But you are probably familiar with Pluto.
Pluto governs survival and collective evolution. The rumble deep in the gut of the body politic is starting, and when it's over, you'll see there was no other way. It really really can't be predicted how events will unfold, but being prepared for both good and bad is wise. Pluto strips pretense and for a brief moment the naked truth of what life is like appears. Then the coverup begins again. The problems of human desire have to be faced occasionally, and not by buying commodities.
With Pluto opposite Venus, it's a possibility that the trillion dollar bailout will go down the drain, through the sewer, and out into the cosmos. You know Pluto. I hope the cosmos pays it back in due time. I swear it looks like the people are throwing money away deliberately trying to buy something else. Maybe trying to find some spiritual solace after 250 years of uncontrolled material consumption. And maybe some penitence, forgiveness, and reparations to make for some of the things they've done to appease the appetite. Who can tell?
Pluto in Capricorn and Aquarius reveals class inequities in the distribution of wealth, and now with most of the riches in the hands of 1% of the population, the system is unsustainable. They won't stop grabbing as the insecurity mounts. The top is so heavy and weak that it can't continue much longer, and meantime, the bottom will be slowly and steadily gaining strength, as preparations for rebuilding are beginning.
I think the schisms might become more pronounced while the knowledge of economic structure takes a step forward through trial and error, in both Capricorn and Aquarius. Humanity has spent its entire history trying to figure out what works - how to survive and how to distribute. So far it has worked. We're still here. But problems abound. Then possibly in Pisces, there'll be a re-uniting after dissolution and a fresh start with new survival techniques in Aries. Everything in is constant flux, falling apart and coming back together in sequence.
I imagine as Pluto continues, the focus will be on the decaying system. The ineffectiveness and the fact that the people have been abandoned - the 99% - should be clear. But with Uranus in Aries, the understanding of our ability to thrive should gain more momentum with growth of independence and autonomy. At the same time, the innovations of the coming era are already underway ready to be put into use when the time comes. Scientists, artists, inventors of all kinds are continually at work.
Added to the Pluto transits of Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces, is the change to the Aquarian Age. The Age of Pisces was the age of the savior and redeemer, and this will no longer be applicable. I think the current situation is part of that lesson and transition. No saints, rescue plans, or prayers are needed at this point. We'll flourish anyway. Alternatives are being born.
The earth is a vast, complex, and beautiful system that heals itself, and we're a necessary speck in its subsistence. The Paleo-Indians who lived in America 10,000 years ago hunted giant mammoths for sustenance. The perfection of their techniques was magnificent in its skill and precision. After the last Ice Age, a sudden shift in water and wind currents brought an unexpected return of the freeze, the Younger Dryas, and as a result, the mammoths and other large animals perished completely. Yet humans endured as they quickly and radically adapted to the changed environment. Habitat determines life and that's why large animals like the elephant are probably also destined for extinction. I find it curious that humans were selected to carry on and it could be that we're meant to continue. God knows why. But as Pluto transits the final quadrant and goes into Aries, I think some knowledge about new living techniques is coming.
In the meantime, the unfit system must destruct. Our government is in critical care with a lousy prognosis. All the leaders know not what they're doing as the vortex carries them out - as they grasp for the only thing they know; something called money. What comes after a trillion? My arithmetic fails me.
We can't hasten the process. Time is an ally. But within the ebbs and flows of fortune, seeds of growth are always germinating, and many good experiences are awaiting people, even if times do get tough in the near future. I'm glad I don't have to depend on mammoths for survival.
