I don't talk much about Pluto transits, because Pluto is a very slow outer planet that takes about 250 years to make one orbit around the Sun. Pluto is in retrograde motion almost as much as he is moving direct, but this Pluto retrograde is special. This will be Pluto's last adventure in Sagittarius for our lifetimes, and our children's and grandchildren's lifetimes. And, its all happening just in time for the 2008 presidential elections.
Pluto is the planet of death and rebirth, and he digs deep to uncover secrets. I wonder how our elections will turnout? Presently we are seeing more documentaries and news programs exposing the truth about the voting corruption in the 2000 presidential elections. Also, we are being educated about the decisions made in the White House, the CIA, and the Military concerning our involvement in the war in Iraq. When planets are on the cusps between signs, they are the most touchy. Pluto has been in Sagittarius since 1995, but now (2007 and 2008), as he crosses into Capricorn, is when we are seeing the big flare-ups.
Pluto actually left Sagittarius and entered Capricorn back on January 25th, but he turned retrograde in April and is now moving back into Sagittarius for the last time. Its time for one last dance, one last adventure, before Pluto moves to a more serious focus. Sagittarius loves to laugh and wander, but Capricorn represents hard work and discipline. Pluto's last few months in Sagittarius may bring us to a higher awareness, especially at a community level. A few heroes could emerge as Pluto traverses his eleventh hour in Sagittarius, and we may actually rescue ourselves from some of the government corruption that has been going on since Nixon. We may decide to stand up and take responsibility for our governments.
Pluto will enter Capricorn just a few months before our next president will take office. The last time Pluto was in Capricorn was in the 1760's and the 1770's. Capricorn represents authority figures, and Pluto brings destruction and rebirth -- the American Revolution. There was also the French Revolution and the establishment of Napoleon as a modern dictator. I wonder how Pluto in Capricorn will affect our next president and congress? Don't forget to vote!
Obviously, Pluto will be at 29 degrees Sagittarius throughout most of this transit, so its time to look at your natal chart. Any planets or power points at 29 degrees (plus or minus 2 degrees) in Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini, or Virgo will be dealing with endings and beginnings. If you have any planets or power points at 29 degrees (plus or minus 2 degrees) in Aries or Leo, you may find you are able to make powerful changes in your life at this time.
