Not sure if you have noticed but the world seems to be spiraling... but is it spiraling in or out of control? That is the question. Let me shed some light on why.....
You don't have to be an astrologer to see that something is changing.. something big! For starters, on a personal level you may have found yourself feeling rather overwhelmed with all the intense energy over the last 5 months, courtesy of Pluto in retrograde.
It has likely felt as though you have had to make some major decisions about the direction your life is taking. You have had to look at your belief structures and strip away every scrap of illusion, facing the harsh facts of what works... and what you have to dissolve. This may have sent you into a bit of a crisis, maybe even a sense that something is dying off. Well, sorry (NOT SORRY) to say it, but you are not wrong. Something is dying off... the old you. You are in the midst of a transformation, you have been in the crucible of change, becoming refined through pain and fire. Cue dramatic music... cause it's dramatic!
However, those changes aren't limited to you... oh no honey, you aren't alone in this glorious sea of misery! Nope, you have the whole world for company!
Wait, what?! Alysa, you mean I'm not alone in this shit?!
No, no you're not!
Basically over the last 5 months we all have been enjoying the rumbling, grinding, persistent, evolve or die kind of vibes. It's been intense, and we are all being forced to eliminate what is unsustainable... especially as it concerns our individual as well as collective thinking. You me and everyone you know has been having a subconscious existential crisis of sorts. Depending on where Pluto has been transiting your chart this retrograde you will know where your personal philosophies, beliefs and sense of power are being challenged. That's what Pluto does, it upsets your apple cart, forcing you to swim or ... well, drown. I'm confident more than a few of you have quit jobs, marriages, moved out or gone into some form of self imposed isolation when April, brought spring and Pluto into it's backward dance across the sky.
Not just on a personal level, but on a global level we are seeing major, major shifts. World leaders are being called to task in front of a watching world, all of their dirty deeds are being uncovered and their hidden agendas coming to light.
Take for instance the current sitting president of the united states. Since 2016 people all over the world have been polarized by his actions, tweets, values and more than anything, his promises to change the way that the U.S. operates as a nation and as a people.
Normally I avoid talking politics like most people avoid wiping their nether bits with poison ivy - yes, I find it that detestable.
But, in this case I feel it is necessary to point out the most interesting effect that our current astrological weather has on the very fabric of our reality.
After nearly four years of tweets that echo the rhetoric of a fully unhinged toddler and the tantrums to match, we are seeing The Wall that Trump has built around himself beginning to crumble. Bullshit brick, by bullying bullshit brick, Trump's wall of bigotry, sexism, racism, xenophobia, and elitism is falling apart under the weight of his own blind megalomania. In other words, people are like seriously done with his shit. When even those in the party of opposition (democrats) who have up until recently subverted or avoided ousting a former reality T.V. bully are now giving way to the cries of a disenfranchised nation with the announcement of the impeachment process about to begin... you know shit is going down - BIG!
This my dear mystic, is Pluto coming out of retrograde and going direct!
Pluto FORCES transformation. Now, what's even more interesting is that when Pluto Stations direct, it will be in the sign of Capricorn in the 9th house, you will see even more changes and revelations in the coming months.
So let me break it down for you.
PLUTO STATIONS DIRECT IN THE 9TH HOUSE IN THE SIGN OF CAPRICORN Inspires a powerful drive to discover higher meanings in life, we are no longer satisfied with the unsustainable ways that government, society and our environment have been being handled. We are both collectively and individually transforming into a higher octave of conscious expression. Like, even Bernie Sanders is proposing a "Wealth Tax" that would cut billionaire's fortunes nearly in half! “Which would substantially break up the concentration of wealth and power of this small privileged class.” (Totally a Pluto move.)
None the less we must be cautious that our thirst for justice and order don't become dogmatic as we seek to develop new more egalitarian philosophies. Additionally as this shift crystallizes, it is important to be aware that Pluto takes around 248 years to make a complete cycle, spending 12 to 32 years in each sign. Which is why we are likely to see a significant change in world government.
As you can see my dear Mystic, this is an era of intense changes as it concerns everything we believe in. Nothing is left untouched by this energy.
But, there is a light at the end of the tunnel and the good news is it isn't the train. Before every great transformation there is destruction. The archetype of the phoenix teaches you this. The beautiful bird is born of ashes, grows into a magnificent bird and then burns brightly, consumed by the heat of its own flames; only to endlessly cycle through birth, death and regeneration. In much the same way, we as human beings do this on a personal level as well as a collectively and each time we are brought to critical mass, destruction and finally a new paradigm in which we may act out the Divine plan again and again.
Pluto stations direct on October 3rd
2019 in Capricorn
and remain so until April 25th, 2020 when it enters retrograde once again until stationing direct on October 4th, 2020 in Capricorn.
