There are no outer planet long-term exact aspects during this year’s Libra. However, we are in the abiding undercurrent of the difficult Uranus square Pluto as it continues on to its 5 year finale March 17, 2015. It has kept the stock market in turmoil, huge plummets. Then the positive planetary combinations we have been having since June have brought it back up. Last month, there were four consecutive days of 400-point moves up or down. It’s been a nerve-wracking ride, has brought many to their knees (Capricorn (also mountaineering)). Thursday’s (Sept 22, 2011) 391 points drop has brought speculation of a recession within ‘recovery.’ Rather than the economy indicating the Market, as has been the case before, the market is now being seen as an indicator of the economy! This time, the upcoming 2nd time Jupiter trine Pluto may come to the rescue. At times it may seem like a frozen waste, but keep the Spirit – in all your endeavors!!! Capricorn loves the thrill of the challenge of those mountains!
We haven’t yet reached the midpoint of the five years to March 17, 2015, nor have we yet had the first exact aspect of the seven to come. That first one will be June 23, 2012. But these planets are traveling in very close degrees, Uranus now at 2 degrees Aries (shockingly speedy moves), Pluto at 4 degrees Capricorn (intense financial climbs – or is that climes?). Those of you born the 22nd through 27th or having planets close to 2-4 degrees, will be under constant question, financial, in relationships, per where these planets are traversing your chart. This is a time to be in truth to yourself – no denial, wishful thinking, just ‘real’ thinking – what you can do balanced with what you must do. It’s time to stay on top of change as it happens, because it’s going to keep happening rapid fire! It’s time not to overspend, have what backup funds you can. There will be some curious diversions along the way, trials varying from fanciful to serious, ultimate choices made of necessity, and that can be to choose what makes you most happy, of course! Difficult though this square is, it is a natural process of planetary unfoldment. It is a change and clean-up process of things deeply entrenched, long guarded, yet somehow spent. Aries has spunk, is quick smart, loves fresh starts! Cap is ultimately wise, and knows the real choice, of the heart and Spirit, is the most healthy! Open your eyes, fear or no fear, start from the bottom up! Court a balance between independence and the support of an experienced coach/mentor. Get some hugs along the way, stay connected, extend a hand to your fellow pilgrims.
All during Libra, while Uranus is squaring (challenge) Pluto, Jupiter will be retrograding back to form the 2nd trine (flow) with Pluto! Though exact on Oct 28 at 5 Taurus/5 Capricorn, it is in close range the whole time. Jupiter in Taurus wants a whole lot more land, property, bigger rooms, lots of earthworks, offers the potential of phenomenal growth. Jupiter wants education about earthly and bodily matters, beauty and desire. It senses true value,. Pluto is in favor of recycling and backup, restoration, and Capricorn wants preservation, conservation and concentration, reserve. Each of them is involved with healing. Taurus is the laying on of hands, physical therapy; Pluto heals as a therapist of our psyche, fears of success. Jupiter opts for laughter and choice of location; Capricorn for right livelihood, long-term commitment through heart rather than obligation. In business, this is one of the top three money-making combos! Jupiter expands, is lucky, takes the big chance on opportunities with a flying leap! More often than not, it hits the mark because it looked far enough ahead! In Taurus it works both ways; it’s also a money magnet! Pluto is the planet of wealth and charisma, an astute appraiser making powerful alliances. Capricorn gives it uncanny timing. This trine will intensify complex situations. I doubt solutions will be simple or immediate even though it’s a trine (easy), but they will certainly be fascinating, and the long-term results well worth working for!
