Pluto in Capricorn

20 09 2008

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.

Horary Revelation

17 09 2008

Are you seeing the forest or are you just seeing trees? Open your mind. This is a very very simple little observation, but something which I believe is true to the T.

When destiny is set, when something is bound to happen, when something is meant to be, you could do various charts and they would come up with the same answer over and over again.

Modern astrologers rely heavily on traditional texts but they are not necessary. Why don’t we use all the knowledge available to us?

I have noticed a pattern emerging. I ask a question several times, the same question. Each time there are different significators. But each time I find that the two significators which I am interested in are moving towards each other. In one case it is the rulers of the house cusps, through retrogradation, indicating a change of direction, but an eventual conjunction.

In another case there is translation of light between the signifiers by a third party.

In another chart, the signifiers are in an applying aspect with the orb at a very close precision 00 07′ minutes of the arc. The aspect was there, it was not a “traditional” aspect, a biquintile, but I think the fact that the orb was so close and applying has got to mean something. Modern astrology ackowledges quintiles as unbelievably creative and all about one key thing: TIMING, which not coincidentally is also what horary professed to be about.

WHY don’t astrologers use their new knowledge and apply it to the horary technique? The reason is that they are bogged down in what the “texts” say, and incabable of seeing a picture that presents itself under whichever conditions the sky is tempaorarily in.

WHY should a question be asked one day and the second day the same question gets a different answer? The cosmos is telling you something, always telling you something.

The simplest of reasonings: A relationship chart: The Astrologer should ask: Does the ascending degree an its ruler aspect the descending degree and its ruler? Factor in the fifth house and its ruler for romance, factor in the fourth house and its ruler for living together.

If the Ascendant ruler makes an applying square with a 1 degree orb to the descendant, and a bi-quintile applying with ’07 minutes of arc to the descendant ruler then this is a relationship of perfect timing, of creativity, just the same as a sextile aspect which is a creative aspect.

Is the 4th house ruler Venus placed in dignity on the IC square ASC and DC? It means that love is the basis of the relationship and that they ought to live together. The Moon also opposes that Venus with a close applying orb? It signifies that it will happen, especially since it is Angular.

ALL aspects count, modern ruleship may even count, if it is used for Natal and progressions it ought to be sophisticated enough to be used in Horary. Aspects to Angles count. Everything counts. Make the planets apply, make them see each other, and allow them to see each other through intermediaries, through translations and changes of direction.
