On Wednesday the 12th, Venus made a conjunction to Pluto, meaning, that as seen from Earth they were in exactly the same degree, a very important 29º Sagittarius. And I say very important, because it marks the end of Venus’ transit through Sag, which lasted 25 days, but also Pluto’s transit through Sag, which started in Jan 1995 which stands for more important issues than those of the Venus transit.
We can clearly see now, that in the past 14 years we have become aware of the effects of Astrology, on the world at large, and in particular of the power (PLUTO) of our believes (Sag). The dacay of our educational systems (Sag) and the faults of our legal system (Sag).
And we may say to ourselves that these things happen all the time, but the the truth is that on that January 1995, cameras entered a Court Room for the first time and the world watched O.J Simpson get away with murder, literally.
Fights over religious believes are as old as humanity, almost, yet, September 11, 2001 happened under Pluto in Sag in its opposition to Saturn, and we all became aware of it in the same instant.
Educational tests were carried out all over the world, to asses the state of our educational systems and our youth, and the results were dramatically disappointing.
In Spain, it was revealed that in certain areas, over 30% of young people don’t even finish high school. This may have always happened but now we have the tests to prove it!
Shootings in School were the trend of this past decade, with dramatic consequences.
Pluto moves into Capricorn now at the end of this month, the sign of finances, among other things, and we are all talking about a financial crisis.
But yesterday, Venus moved into the sign of the goat, and this is an entirely different story.
Venus the ruler of Taurus and Libra speaks of love and beauty, of our values, of our likes and dislikes.
In the sign of Sagittarius which is exiting now, it invited us to consider expanding our horizon and try to make contact with people of all races and creeds, to try to open ourselves to something different and less familiar. To embrace humanity it all its variations. It brought us close to spectacles and creative projects of people from other countries, other cultures, different to ours, so that we could enrich our perspectives and vision about who we are and what we do.
In Capricorn, the story is about love for tradition, and the value of the eternal concepts like family and parenthood.
Venus in Capricorn likes to commit, to take responsibility for loved ones. It likes to have their love life under control, as this sign is not very good at dealing with emotional chaos.
Capricorn enjoys a sophisticated lifestyle, like going to expensive and elegant places, like the Dorchester in London, for dinner or tea, or perhaps to listen to Opera in any of the beautiful ornamented Opera Houses of the World. Shopping in Tiffany or Dior.
Social status is a strong component in Capricorn loves choices even if they don’t like to admit it.
What does that mean for the rest of us? Well, the cardinal cross, Cancer, Aries, Libra and Capricorn, as well as the other earth signs,Taurus and Virgo, will come into contact with some of this values, and will perhaps buy an object that some can’t really afford, and those who can, this a great time to treat yourselves and those you are trying to impress.
This is also a good month to treat the elderly, enjoy quality time with parents and grandparents. If you have free time on your hands, you could even go to a geriatric home and visit, those men and ladies, who probably never get a visit from anyone.
A love and respect for the old values, in the best possible sense is one of the best Capricornian traits.
