Powerful Pluto, the planet of transformation, power/powerlessness, death/rebirth, the subconscious and the soul, is teaming up with the Sun in Capricorn at the moment, as they both prepare to move into Aquarius in the next couple of days.
This has the potential to make everything very “real” and a bit heavy, as we are forced to confront material that we may prefer to deny or avoid! Pluto forces us to strip away self-deceit and to be very honest with ourselves, penetrating to the heart of the matter, even if it is very uncomfortable. We may be forced to take our power back and to recognise how we give it away. This combo certainly can bring a very uncomfortable reality check, but it is important to sit with whatever comes up, because this is where the buried treasure lies! We could find the truth of the matter glaring at us, whether we like it or not! We could also be facing issues around loss and mortality.
There could be a significant shift of energy, however, as both the Sun and Pluto move into Aquarius this weekend. Aquarius represents freedom, brotherhood/sisterhood, progression, humanitarianism, liberation from our conditioning, revolution and the power of friendship and community. It is a much lighter energy, so hopefully we will feel a bit of a lift and a feeling of liberation in the coming week!
The Sun moves into Aquarius at 2.30pm on Saturday (UK time) and Pluto moves in at 9.30am on Sunday (UK time). Those of us with personal planets and angles around 29° and 0/1° of a sign will be feeling the energy of Pluto the most acutely, especially around 29° of the Cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, and 0/1° of the fixed signs Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. However, we will probably all be feeling this one, on one level or another!
