Pluto in Capricorn

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Aug 19, 2018 8:16 pm

Pluto enters Capricorn a few days after the next U.S. presidential inauguration, suggesting that the inauguration ties to an entirely new stage of the human condition signified by whatever we conclude Pluto in Capricorn signifies.

Pluto at 0° is at the "mater point" of the Sidereal zodiac. Furthermore, nearly every lunar ingress - almost every week of the year 0 for about two years ahead and two years after will have a Moon-Pluto aspect for every place on Earth.

Here are historic dates of Pluto in Capricorn.

To start the brain churning on this, I'll start with some purely theoretical considerations on what we might find.

Pluto's transits through constellations has, as its basic effect, the challenging, ripping at, ripping down of outgrown, arbitrary-seeming elements associated with a constellation; and yet, as is natural in human condition and especially mass-mind when there is such a push in one direction, there is always a counter-reaction. Pluto in Sagittarius is a great example where a basic meaning is blowing up of religion, challenging religious traditions and forms; and, while we have indeed had a very substantial cultural shift with regard to conventional religion, there has also been violent push-back, both from the religious right in our own country and in terms of religious fundamentalists around the world rising up in radical form.

The same is true with wealth inequity and other Sagittarian issues. We have everything from a new generation's dismissal of traditional ideas of "experts" in fields, in favor of crowd-sourced opinions and democratization of tastes, to the challenges and reassertions of the place of the uber-wealthy.

So Pluto is the splitter: It shows dramatic cultural divides, revolt and counter-revolt.

So, in Capricorn what might these issues be? Two or three that come to mind are related: First, the existing trend against experts and field leaders can be expected to accelerate in an assault on outside authority in all forms. Tied into this might be trends in survivalism and increased, isolative self-sufficiency. The battle of connected wider community vs. individual survivalism may be an important focal point. (The way things go, I'd expect an assault on the libertarian sort of "mind your own stuff" survivalism to be the pain push here, with wider, connected community gaining the upper hand, then wider, connected community comes under attack with Pluto in Aquarius. But remember, so far this is all theory, all thinking aloud.)

this paints a picture for me of a world where people increasingly simply assume that they'll never have a guarantee of being save and secure - from violence and cultural breakdown or from economic crisis - and living not so much in a fearful state of mind (as when Neptune was in Capricorn) but accepting it as the way of the world with increasingly limited resources. It may be the first decade or so since the last ice age when the human race has to actually address the question of how survivable this world has become.

From this I expect entirely new genres of literature weaving grand old story telling with contemporary crisis. (We don't know yet what that looks like, but we can guess.) Anything that is a "father image" comes under assault, is attacked, is taken down a peg or two, and of course retaliates and recoils.

And remember... this is all theory so far. No conclusions. Just brainstorming.

Still brain-storming in theory, we expect the passage of Pluto through Capricorn to resemble Pluto's transit of the planets that define Capricorn best, Saturn and Mars.

Pluto aspecting a Saturn starfield can be expected to show breaking down old structures and outmoded patterns. Security may seem threatened as stable resources are challenged. There's a chance to restructure the basis of life more dynamically. It's work-oriented and obstinate, and could use a bit more play and social sharing than comes naturally to it.

From Pluto aspecting a Mars starfield we expect aggressive, angry, fiery aspects of the human condition to be unleashed. It's sexually intense - it may open the way to a new libertine ear, but not necessarily a kind one. It calls on us to express fierce physical energies. Old resentments are purged, but only after they are roused first.

OK, that's the theory. I'm off to my history books now to see if I can find anything actual from the time periods Pluto has passed through Capricorn in the past. Feel free to jump in!

Impressions: A new feudalism?

Nothing clear. It was the end of the era of the Crusades, near the end of the "middle" Middle Ages. Soon after this, by say 1300, a new direction was on the horizon in Europe. There might be a trend of people working hard to figure out how they wanted to be governed, and to try to do something about that.

Little things: Aragon was on the rise and conquered Sicily, more or les owning the western Mediterranean. Portugal was in an accelerated development of agriculture and economics.

Ah, this is interesting: Most of Marco Polo's travels between Europe and China were 1275 to 1292. This opened up new economic possibilities for east and west alike and probably changed a lot of how people did business and how Europe's commercial economies worked.

I don't know if we can expect activities to center in the same places, but this was a time when China was on a roll, with military excursions around eastern Asia including multiple assaults on Japan.

Impression: New economies?

The era of Henry VIII and his break with the Church of Rome - in other words, the heart of the Protestant Reformation. Lots of heads roll (literally).

Spain and France were fighting, much of it over control of Italy (The Italian Wars). A lot of instability in Italy, in fact, with the sack of Rome, seizing the pope, Florence rising up against the Medicis (replacing their rule with a republic), revolt in Genoa. Clement VII was pope, of course (for the whole Henry VIII matter, losing half the church, being temporarily overthrown, squabbles with the Medicis, and just having no idea how to handle the rising religious revolts in Germany and England). He was succeeded by Paul III who opened the Council of Trent for the purpose of dramatic reformation within the Catholic church (but wait: That was in 1545, so the pressures built with Pluto in Capricorn but the important reformation occurred with Pluto in Aquarius.)

Yes, the Protestant Reformation was echoing all over western and central Europe during these years.

These were the main years of the work of Paracelsus, who was a passionate campaigner for reformation of medicine by the use of drugs. In one of the great overturnings of old authority that literally knocked the world off its pedestal, Copernicus published his De revolutionibus in 1543.

Cortes was making his way through Central America, conquering and colonizing one place after another. Other names you know, like de Leon and De Soto, were in their heyday.

This, of course, is the period of the American Revolution and general founding of this country. (We're nearing the U.S. Pluto return.) 1792 was the election year between Washington's two terms, so you can see this is from just before the revolutionary war broke out through the moving away from being rebellious upstarts, toward becoming the responsible managers of the new nation.

Additionally, the French Revolution began in 1789 and lasted a decade. It was (as cited earlier) a time of people figuring out afresh how they want to be governed. (Ugh, I hope that doesn't mean that the Koch brothers will get their way and we have a new constitutional convention.)

I think I have a feel for this. I don't want to try to pin it down yet, but did want to tart the exploration. We have two and a half years, but... might as well start looking ahead now.

When Pluto enters Capricorn in January 2021, Jupiter and Saturn will already be there. We'll have quite a year for watching outer planet behavior in Capricorn.

Good brainwashing Jim.

Jim Rogers, a market guy who excels with his long term (5-10 years) market predictions since the late 60’s has my upmost respect. He has moved his family out of USA to Asia because USA has become a huge debtor nation, and Asia is positioned to stay out of debt. Rogers sees Asia as the best economic situation for all kinds of long term investment. But, not many people on this forum has it within their practical means to move to Asia.

Exactly! And, Our 2021 Capsolar starts off with a very nasty bang! Mars in Aries partile cnj MC partile 90 Saturn in Capricorn. I damn sure will be in survivalist mode with little things which are within my practical control, prepping for 2021. Followed-up with a 2021 Cansolar with a rare partile Sun/Pluto=Moon. It’s the partile 0,90,180 Moon-Pluto aspects in solar ingresses which will focus time frames for possible stunning/shocking things which could damage individuals in adverse ways. Jim, I know your work does not include aspects with the Sun in Ingresses, but I am pretty sure the last thousand years of solar ingresses has never featured an ingress Solar Moon partile 0,90,180 an Ingress Sun with Pluto partile partile cnj a Cardinal point.

My biggest fear is another Carrington Event which occurred in 1859 with 1859 Capsolar featuring a Moon 13,53 Ari & Pluto 12,51 Ari. This Carrington Event receives little public fanfare. The Carrington Event was a World Wide Event and partile 0,90,180 Moon-Pluto in Solar Ingresses always applies to the whole world with Sidereal Solar Ingresses. If another Carrington Event occurred-- all individuals would be placed in grave danger to survive the consequences. The Modern World is definitely not prepared and will never be prepared for another Carrington Event—it would be a disaster. In 2012 another Carrington Event occurred on the Sun but fortunately the wave missed our planet. NASA notified JQ Public after this huge Sun Spot. For the past week, out of curiosity, I am again looking at all the DC Capsolars from 1790 to 2021, and eventually the rest of the Solar Ingresses for same period to see how many partile Moon-Pluto 0,90,180 aspects occurred, a total of 920 Solar Ingresses. I know this: If another Carrington was to occur in our modern world--there would be high % it would be symbolized with a 0,90,180 Moon-Pluto aspects in one of our annual Solar Ingresses, with higher % in the Master Chart of the Year--the Capsolar!

I place so much confidence in Sidereal Solar Ingresses in a broad stoke way, I started planning/preparing and still preparing depending, in small ways which will do me no harm if I am wrong, with the potential for major crap occurring in 2021, which could set-off malefic manifestations for years.
