Start as you mean to go on… Because 2022 certainly will be. After the couple of years we’ve had, you’ll probably be delighted to hear that in just a few days, a brand new year…
What happens when Pluto - the planet of darkness, mystery, secrets, power, and control - meets head-on with the Capricorn - the sign of discipline, control, order, and rules? It can only mean one thing... a radical rebirth is about to happen.
Pluto - Ruler of the Underworld
Pluto is the furthest planet. Its dark, moody, and mysterious nature affects everything it touches. From our fears to our secrets to our hidden desires and urges... Pluto has a knack for unearthing the deepest and darkest parts of ourselves and pulling them to the surface to be examined and addressed.
With that said, Pluto is not a "bad planet". It actually symbolizes grand re-birth, spiritual growth, and terrific transformations. Pluto pulls out the darkness inside of you, so that you can see it, address it, and leave behind anything negative that no longer serves you.
With Pluto being the further planet, this planet doesn't only affect you. Pluto is concerned with the greater good of all humanity. Which is why the ripple effect of Pluto can be felt throughout all society.
Capricorn - "It's My Way or the Highway"
In contrast to Pluto's large reach, Capricorn is more independent and self-concerned. This sign all about being serious, getting down to business and making things happen. Think of Capricorn as the workhorse of the zodiac - it's disciplined, tenacious, and highly concern about "making appearances".
Capricorn is here to help you meet success, through sheer will and strength. Capricorn rules over the systems and structures that run our society - things like government, corporations, and global power.
When Pluto is in Capricorn
When Pluto is stationed in Capricorn you can expect a radical rebirth to emerge for all of society, as a whole. Pluto paves the way for the destruction of the power systems that are no longer working for society. And Capricorn is there to stay strong, dutifully rebuilding the structure into a new system - for better or for worse.
When Pluto and Capricorn combine forces, they contain a powerful dynamic to create large-scale, everlasting change in society. Expect to feel the balance of power to sway, and maybe even crumble, before it's rebuilt into something that better serves humanity.
When Pluto is Retrograde in Capricorn
When Pluto is stationed retrograde in Capricorn, you can expect the opposite to happen... A radical rebirth will still be happening. But instead of affecting society as a whole - it will be focused solely on YOU. When Pluto stations retrograde, all of its effects will be felt internally, rather than externally. This is the ideal time to thoroughly examine your thought patterns, limiting beliefs, and toxic behaviors. In essence, Pluto retrograde is here to bring out your shadow side - don't shy away from the truth behind what you discover here. Rebirth cannot happen until the shadows are exposed.
