Pluto and the Chart of the USA
The Shifting Power Relationships among the People, the Government and Corporations
Sunday, September 23, 2012
1:00 – 3:00 PM
FEATURED PLANET: VENUS
Pluto has returned to the USA’s natal sign of Capricorn for the first time in our nation’s history but won’t reach its birth position of 27 degrees until 2022. A country with Pluto in Capricorn has a power base that defaults to corporations and their influence on government without intervention by the people and their advocates.
In astrology, Pluto works at a global level eventually giving the masses what they need to know to correct power inequities. First, he puts everyone through a long slow roll giving them time to feel the impact of power imbalances related to the sign he occupies. His intent isn’t to kill us individually, although it can sure feel like it—and at times we wish he would. Instead, he exposes what power inequities are killing us through collective thought and action, relative to the sign he’s in, ultimately providing opportunities for rebalancing power.
So what is Pluto’s first birthday in the USA chart going to provide us? Astrology helps us look forward, supported by looking backward at the progression of events fueled by Pluto. This eye-opening presentation traces Pluto through each astrological sign to show the shifting power dynamics in historical context, who is impacted, and what corrective measures are/were taken and implications for the future.
