We are already in the first of 3 squares (90º) between Jupiter in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn, the second will be March 30, 2017 and the third August 4, 2017, period which coincides with the 8 months that Neptune is in direct motion, from now until June 2017.
This aspect between Jupiter and Pluto in these signs does not occur since 1934, it coincides historically with the rise of Nazism in Europe, with Hitler in Germany, Mussolini in Italy and Franco in Spain. Just like after the Great Depression in 1929 y la crisis del 2008, we area under similar astrological aspects such as the waning Uranus-Pluto square, at 5º orb at the moment, but also, a similar political situation. In 1929, Uranus in Aries (like now) Pluto in Cancer (now in its opposite sign of Capricorn) were forming the same square, with Saturn, now in Sagittarius like then, moving into Capricorn, opposing Pluto in Cancer. These two will form a conjunction in the last degrees of Cap as from 2020. At that point we saw the rise of the right, all over Europe, almost with the same nationalistic loud voice as those of Donald Trump and Nigel Farage (who defended and promoted Brexit).
Now, after the economic crisis that began in 2008, we are experiencing similar situation, except that we are not at the same evolutionary or social stages, as then.
Today we have a much more informed youth, who handle the media as we didn’t do before, we all understand we have a voice over public matters and we can use it, as it has happened in the Arab spring, or as is happening now in the streets of South Korea, with young people demanding that Par Gun-hye, their president, resigns. Something unseen or unheard of in that country in early 20th Century.
Donald Trump, the president elect of the USA, has most of the media against him, yet, i wonder for how long. Pluto in Capricorn has been responsible for bringing down and out into the light the corruption of governments and the big fortunes. The more money you have, the less you pay taxes, it seems. Power and money give you that privilege.
Therefore, the working class and not only whites, miners and builders, but all the working class that is most of us, get a clear picture of what has been going on in the upper spheres.
Governments and big institutions and companies, like Movistar or Endesa in Spain, have our bank accounts and they charge us what they want. Everyone suffers this, not just those who voted for Trump, Brexit, Macri or Rajoy, etc.
Jupiter in Libra will make sure that we sit and speak cordially, as we saw Trump and Obama do, to try and solve our present predicaments, but the reality boiling underneath (Pluto) is something completely different.
This tension we are all under, politically, is also happening at an individual level. The Pluto influence is psychological, it turns us inside and makes us uncomfortable. It pushes buttons in our psyche that we would much rather left untouched. It present us with what needs to be changed and how we resist the imminent change. If confronts us with the least desirable aspects of our nature and we must find a way to admit to it and work on it.
Jupiter, on the contrary is something much more social, he suggests we have to accept the facts or the rules of the game, because we do not live alone on this planet and there is something called “compromise”, which includes, listening to each other.
This square is also affected by the fact that Jupiter will oppose Uranus on the 26th of December, so the need for “freedom” seems to be eloquent.
On November 23-24 when the Jupiter-Pluto square was exact for the first time, Venus, still in Capricorn, aligned with Pluto, and we take conscience of the fact that we must let go of certain things and/or people, that make us unhappy, to rescue our emotional independence. Consider these small everyday power struggles that corrode our relationships with partners, children, co-workers. The feeling, the temptation of growing towards separation can be powerful, perhaps in assumption that when a relationship fulfils its function, tends to come to an end. If what we really wanted were children, after we have them, then there is danger of looking at the partner and feel: “so, now, what?, if what we really want is a partner for life, then we must work on it and stop dreaming of a better posible option sometime in the future, and get real and deal with our humanity and that of our partner. Therefore, on a personal level, many relationships especially those of the cardinal signs are being subjected to scrutiny, which forces us to look at our partner in a more honest way and from a less neurotic point, typically full of unrealistic expectations and negative criticism. From December 7, Venus enters the sign of Aquarius, what will offer us the opportunity to rescue the friendship, not only with our friends but with our partner too. Cross-cultural relationships could be difficult to handle. The greatest danger lies in our cultural and family conditioning that makes us forget we are the only human race on this planet and that we must learn to get on, honouring our differences which only enrich us all.
Finding solutions to our problems taking into consideration other people’s point of view, our obligation with Jupiter in Libra, the positive aspect as always is the awareness of the circumstances from a more detached perspective and the acceptance of change.
