Pluto, the North Node and the Moon come together today at 3 degrees Capricorn with Ceres closely involved at 9 degrees. The Moon conjuncts Pluto and the North Node almost simultaneously at 2:14 p.m. (CT).
This conjunction is fascinating to me.
Pluto-North Node conjunctions happen on average every 17 years, with quite wide variation possible. With Pluto involved, they can be seen as generational markers related to the broad, collective themes being Plutonically lived and worked on at that time - and that will continue to be lived and worked on by the babies being born during that Pluto generation.
These are the Pluto-North Node conjunctions experienced on this planet over the past 100 years:
November 9, 2010 at 3 degrees Capricorn
February 22, 1994 at 28 degrees Scorpio
Hallowe'en of 1977 at 15 degrees Libra
December 31, 1960 at 8 degree Virgo
November 28, 1943 at 8 degrees Leo
August 25, 1926 at 15 degrees Cancer
February 11, 1909 at 23 degrees Gemini
Due to the timing, we skipped this conjunction during Pluto in Sagittarius.
The next conjunction of the North Node and Pluto occurs November 15, 2027 at 4 degrees Aquarius. The one following that, the conjunction in Pisces, will not occur until June 3, 2062 at 25 degrees.
As this conjunction infuses our soul-driven path forward with the Plutonic impetus for excavation, increased awareness and transformation out of the deadened husks of previous modes of operation, both personally and collectively, there is an elimination necessary of one path over another. Crossing the great stream.
Along with the elimination of certain modes of being, there is a necessary reinvestment of energy and resources into the vital track driving us forward.
There are some tough decisions to be made, but this is Capricorn we're talking about. It's pretty much the sign of tough decisions.
This is a point from which we can consciously work to eliminate the Five Year Corpo-Governmental Plan from our lives and from our planet, redirecting our resources, realigning our decisions, and committing our personal buying power to building a vital track out of the corruption. Here, we can commit to a path out of the poisonous corpo-governmental stranglehold that has brought life on this planet to the brink and into more soul-sustaining, nourishing terrain.
The Moon and Ceres being so strongly involved is highly significant as we rework the Cancer-Capricorn polarity and shift male-female and masculine-feminine power dynamics.
There is a back-to-basics feel here, a simplicity, with the ability to choose what is nourishing emotionally, to body and soul, over what is profitable and possibly a rush in the short-term but ultimately destructive, damaging, traumatic.
An interesting aspect with the Moon (mothering) involved so strongly is that, as we all get our Pluto in Capricorn-infused soul instructions, so do the babies born over the past two years who have natal Pluto in Capricorn.
Hey, this is Capricorn. Of course, they're starting young! They're here to shift things along the Cancer-Capricorn polarity, including motherhood/parenthood and the family unit, so might as well start from the ground up.
The Pluto in Capricorn babes on the planet currently are the vanguard - just as the early Pluto in Leo and Pluto in Virgos were who experienced the Pluto-North Node conjunction in their babyhood.
The Plutonic generational intention is also being anchored here for the Pluto in Capricorn souls yet to come over the next 14 or so years. If you're planning a baby in the next 14 years, this is a point in time to connect with as far as understanding the broader soul intentions of those about to come to the planet.
Pluto gets to a sign in the zodiac when to not bring the hidden issues to awareness, to not apply the Plutonic strip-down and gut-level transformation of the expression of that sign, would mean soul death, if not physical death, for humanity. High stakes we work with on this planet.
In Capricorn - you guessed it - it has to do with the emerging collective awareness of the dirty dealings, corruption and increasing stranglehold of the consolidated corpo-governmental military industrial complex and related set-ups.
Aligning properly with the broader Plutonic process in our own lives is kind of a big deal, and with this conjunction, we get a ripe window of time to do just that, following new soul instructions intuitively and practically out of the deadened, crystallized structures and forms that no longer sustain life.
If the personal aligns with the transpersonal collective transformational momentum in just the right alchemical mix at this point, guided by the soul knowledge of each individual, there is huge progress possible out of the Pluto in Capricorn rubble.
At the same time, heading right into the heart of the beast so as to understand what we're really dealing with takes a great deal of courage and commitment to delve deeper and go further - hell, to even keep going at all, at times.
Those who do not have the best interests of humanity at heart will also be using this portal to advance strategic goals. Let's recall that we are heading to a series of seven exact squares of Uranus in Aries to Pluto in Capricorn (June 2012 - March 2015). The last time Uranus in Aries was in a series of squares with Pluto (five) was 1932 to 1934 when Pluto was in Cancer - the Great Depression, the rise of the Third Reich and the lead up to World War II.
This is not to say history will repeat (though they're trying), but unfinished business from the Pluto in Cancer generation is definitely being kicked up with Pluto transitting the opposite sign and squaring Uranus.
Suffice it to say we are having to master our deepest fears on multiple fronts.
We're at a reckoning point as far as where we find ourselves on this planet - on the precipice and at a vantage point that is both spiritually soaring, wondrous, electrifying and inspiring as well as emotionally, psychologically and physically devastating, horrifying. These are the Plutonic extremes. In order to reach the wondrous spiritual heights, we must have the roots, we must be adept with the spiritual depths in the most difficult aspects of human experience on this planet.
As we hurtle through this portal and start to gain momentum, the other planets are going direct like dominoes. We're pulling up old anchors one-by-one as Neptune, Chiron, Venus, Jupiter and Uranus all station direct by December 5. December 5 to January 25, 2011 is a time when all planets, excluding Mercury, are direct and many wheels start to turn ahead of Uranus re-entering Aries March 11 and a huge push forward into new territory at Spring Equinox.
We need a running start into that time in order to launch ourselves beyond the entrapping tail-end Piscean Age tendrils and the nasty uses of Pluto in Capricorn energy - to truly cross the great stream - and that running start begins now with the initial steps. The South Node is in Cancer. Things are not as they were. It's all a bit foreign and hard on us emotionally. All we can do is align ourselves with what is coming into existence, carving out our path step-by-step, responsibly, and with lazer-like soul-guided precision to get there.
