It is hard to say exactly what will happen over the next couple of decades. Pluto’s conjunction with the constellation of Capricorn is something that most of the Astrological world has been eagerly awaiting, partly because it’s not every day that outer planets move into different signs, and partly because this isn’t just any old sign, this is the Cardinal Earth sign.
Pluto’s ingress into Capricorn will bring a sigh of relief to the people and places ruled by Sagittarius. In Capricorn the energy will be low key, it will be sober, cool headed, there will be a cool breeze blowing in from the North. I am not going to digress into what happened “the last time Pluto was in Capricorn”, the world is simply too different to how it was 246 years ago to make a statement concerning this planet-sign combination.
Much of what has written about Capricorn depicts falling empires, and rising nations, and this is one thing that should be of interest to most people. The only real prediction that I am willing to make about the planetary placement with absolute certainty and commitment, is this: Countries all across the world will be prepared to either merge with each other or separate even more so. The European Union is daily intergrating itself more and more possibly in preparation for that final act of Unification. While in other parts of the world separatist regions are trying to break away from the yoke of power, Central Asia is one example of this, but South America and Africa have examples of cities that are beginning to protest their political autonomy from centralised and often tyrannical authority.
The United Kingdom has recently under the ray of Sagittarian Pluto undergone a partial dismemberment, all completely voluntary, though still as a Union holds on tenaciously to its strategic Imperial territories like Gibraltar and The Falklands. Whether the UK will be “assimilated” into the European Union or whether it takes on a different partisan role is irrelevant. Both England and the UK are strongly Capricorn and will be on the offensive in the world at large, leading the world as that nation has done in centuries past. Resurrect the British Empire? It may not be possible, but there will definitely be a desire to create, to build a civilisation, an all-powerful civilisation based on order over chaos, of duty, responsibility and people working hard for achieving stability.
That stability of course is not going to happen for this poor Capricorn Pluto transit. The incoming T-square of Uranus and Jupiter mixed in opposition to Saturn and Mars will bring about turmoil in very short time. It is hard to pinpoint exactly where the cards will fall, but this transit denotes a most unstable Capricorn power structure for a period of 7 years at least.
The massive trauma which occurred during Pluto’s transit of Cancer must not be ignored, war and destruction was occurring during this period. But it is possible that responsible old Capricorn will not let things get out of hand too much. Pluto in Capricorn is extremely down to earth, and will definitely bring people closer to the land in which they live.
