I don't personally think justice is too much to ask from the Pluto in Virgo generation. This just seems to be the line we're being fed...the convenient excuse of the day.

As I said in the post, I think the idea that justice is a fantasy that doesn't exist in the "grown-up world of practical realities" is a total cop-out. Achieving justice and fairness is a process that we work toward. We keep that goal in mind as we go about dealing with practical realities if we're truly committed to it.

When I'm writing about Pluto generations, I'm speaking of the generation as a group/collective. I know there are always committed individuals doing the right thing...even when the mainstream isn't.

I'm throwing down the gauntlet to the generation as a whole, the same way I throw it down within my own Pluto gen. At the same time, I fully understand that many members of each generation have already taken up the challenge and committed to it...possibly from birth. But others have different motivations.

And yes, I realize how annoyingly earnest this disclaimer is. That's just how this bitch rolls...

Willow, the "old" astrology beliefs hold that unless Pluto is on an angle or aspecting a "personal planet," it won't have much effect in the person's life as it's a "generational planet." Now, I don't buy this because Pluto is in the chart soo it's part of their energetic makeup, regardless.

As a Scorpio, I am tuned to its subtleties and notice when transiting Pluto is within 5 degrees of one of my planets.

Just wondered if most people are attuned to its energy, or just avoiding the need for transformation. I've noticed that Pluto power really kicks in when people are in puberty (sexuality) and in their 40's (power). The Pluto in Virgo generation is just really coming to power now, so we'll have to see how they do with it.

Justice and balance are basic energies that all need to work on, IMO.

Yeah, astrology with an evolutionary perspective (how I practise) considers Pluto a major player, so my analysis is heavy on the Pluto. But so's my life. :)

I do think Scorpio/Pluto consciousness relates to things most people don't want to deal with/look at...even just the basic awareness of the dark side of each of the other signs...

But again, that's my bias.
