An added layer to the Pluto in Capricorn themes of the day is Saturn in Virgo. Saturn is the planet that rules Capricorn, so the sign where Saturn is will be strongly influential throughout Pluto's transit of Capricorn. Saturn changes signs every 2.5 years (approx.), but it has been in Virgo the entire time Pluto has been in Capricorn thus far. We really have to get the details right at the beginning because Pluto doesn't mess around.
Virgo represents, in simplest terms, work. And workers. It represents systems functioning together holistically and the understanding that even the tiniest aspects of those systems are important. Virgo doesn't cut corners. It knows the folly in doing that. Every detail must be attended to in order for the whole to function properly. Every kink must be worked out for things to run smoothly and masterfully.
During Pluto in Capricorn/Saturn in Virgo we have become aware of a lack of integrity in the systems...
And now as Pluto gains speed moving retrograde, we go back over the things that have come to collective awareness.
I've written about successfully navigating Saturn in Virgo in the past.
And I will add a few more notes here from previous posts:
"Don’t participate in things that are not acceptable to you. Don’t put your personal energy into things that lack integrity to you. Make your service to the planet a sacred thing and answer to a higher power than the business/money hierarchy. Answer to yourself.
Saturn in Virgo combined with Pluto in Capricorn shows us that it’s the small changes that will create the necessary structural adjustments. It’s each individual worker choosing “right action” in their day-to-day lives and service that will bring unjust hierarchies toppling down…and business will have to do better from that point on...
Really, the only way capitalism can work sustainably is if everyone receives their fair cut of the pie (while working within natural laws - yes, the environment does matter). Right now, the energy is moving from the ground floor to the top…where it becomes concentrated. Top-heavy and consistently eroding those who make up the foundation (workers). So eventually, a stiff (Aquarian) breeze will bring the whole thing toppling down. Well, let me tell you…Pluto is more than a stiff breeze, so all hierarchical structures that are operating out of integrity had best take heed."
