open your mind
Happy New Year.
I don't know how 'happy' it will end up being. I suppose that is up to each individual. I am however convinced that unless the mind is open, it will be short lived happiness. For peace on earth, or just in our own living room we need more open mindedness. I think it should be taught in schools, starting from the first grade on. How to keep the mind open is an ongoing challenge in today's world. We will get lots of chances in 2008 to test our self made boundaries.
We start the year with the focus on the earth signs. The Sun of course is always in 'reality based' Capricorn at this time. But joining it in the big sky is Jupiter, and soon, by the third week in January, Pluto will join the the ranks of the mountain climber sign. This is major news. Hasn't happened in, oh, a couple hundred years. We will have sixteen to figure out the best use of this combo- underworld Pluto in the clothes of Capricorn: they will last a long time these threads. Blue chip will only do. Finest linen. Darker colors, earth tones need only apply. Translation: time to grow up. Be honest. Learn what 'i give you my word' really SHOULD mean. Lets all be adults for a while. Capricorn is good at that. Especially in the younger years. They tend to be old while young and young while old. They took care of business in the youth so in the elder years they tend to be young at heart. So how can we apply this to Pluto's transit through Capricorn? Where you have Capricorn in your chart is where you need to be mature.
I will give you a run down:
1st house: w/ regards to the physical body
2nd : how you handle money/what you do for a living
3rd: relationships with brothers/sisters/neighbors/transportation
4th: mom//home/soul stuff
5th: kids/love life/creative expression/gambling
7th: your partner in life
8th: sex/death/taxes/other peoples money/values
9th: who you pray too when the elevator is stuck/overseas travel
10th: the big boss/dad/reputation
12th: what you do when you think no one is looking (god never sleeps)/retreat ville
You have until Nov 20th 2024 to be exact. (the day before my 64th birthday!)
Scorpios and those with much Scorpio energy in the chart should pay attention. This is one of your ruling planets- and its about to have a costume change. This passage of Pluto in Capricorn will demand you review what the word 'empire' means. Will you build one? Tear one down? Yes, its likely to be an either or situation, all or nothing is our mantra. This is where open-mindedness comes in. Ah, the shades of grey, how I must learn to love thee.
Saturn is going to be trining Jupiter and Pluto very soon. On the 21st and again this spring/summer. That's some good back-up. Real muscle. Saturn 'rules' Capricorn- so the fact that its in the sign of Virgo- and Virgo and Capricorn can find similar ground will help to break some solid rich soil underneath our feet. Will we strike gold? That depends on the length of commitment one makes at this time. Its about the long haul, not the instant win. What we might 'win' could be better health because of commitment to a 'clean, simple diet' and doing away with thinking our body is going to last forever. They tell me this: "THEY DIDN'T MAKE IT TO LAST"- so better start taking care of it so it will last as long as you need it to.
Virgo rules heath. Cleanliness. The harvest. Health Insurance is the key word that comes to my mind when I think of Saturn in Virgo trine to Jup/Pluto in Capricorn. We WILL have universal health care in the next 2 years, here in the USA. Some form of it. A rough start at it. Especially when Hilary wins. And yes- I am on the record with that. I think she's going to win. I also think she's going to ask Obama to be her side-kick shinning light of power. Its early to stick ones neck out with this prediction, but I am a Scorpio and currently in touch with my fearlessness. How cool could it be to 'make history-twice!'I ask that you embrace open mindedness with me.
