The current direct station of Pluto at 26 Capricorn is like no other, at least in our lifetimes. The most important fact is that this planet is turning direct in tight conjunction with the position it holds within the 1776 American Independence chart. This alone promises to awaken a huge dark psychic wave. Astrology helps us decipher the undercurrents of collective life, and the forecast for the war in Ukraine seem to show more agitation over the next few months. America is going through a slow, perhaps imperceptible, phase of metamorphosis. This station will be another significant moment along that process. We should not forget that the first passage of Pluto across 27 Capricorn corresponded with Russia’s first attack against Ukraine. In the future, we will probably recognize how this war plays a major role in this phase of American reformation.
Pluto and Social Dismantlement
Pluto will soon start moving towards a conjunction to the Saturn in early Aquarius of those nations which were reborn in the early 1990s, after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The charts involved include the Ukrainian and Russian ones. Pluto conjunct national Saturn can bring complete reformation, if not widespread dismantlement. This major transit will address the underlying structure of all these nations somehow. Things appear quite critical also due to the fact that Mars and Pluto, co-rulers of Scorpio, are currently on an applying contra-parallel. We can compare this aspect to an opposition, though it occurs in declination rather than longitude. Mars currently forms a parallel with Putin’s natal Uranus and Pluto; also, the coming Solar Eclipse in Scorpio will fall on his Ascendant.
Mars’ Energy Everywhere
The current Mars-Neptune square triggers the Sagittarius Mars of the Russian December 25th 1991 chart, as well as the Gemini Mars of the July 4th 1776 American chart. The Mars opposition between these two charts will be a major point of concern throughout the next few months, as Mars moves retrograde through Gemini. NATO was founded in 1949, under a warring Sun-Venus-Mars-Neptune opposition in Aries/Libra. The current transit of Chiron, and the upcoming Full Moon in Aries, will put more stress on the military alliance.
If anybody has been wondering why nuclear rhetoric is at its highest in decades, this may help.
