The Dark Lord Pluto Apply's Direct Pressure

Star Wars Darth Vader
On Tuesday 18th September 2012 Pluto, experienced by some as 'he who destroys and transforms' or by others as 'he who heals and transforms' appears to jolt forward in its trajectory. Whilst Pluto lodges in the respectable, sober sign of Capricorn it has times when it brings some especially hard knocks when it forms a tense square aspect with Uranus. Whilst inn the ambitious, status conscious Cardinal sign of Capricorn his 'Royal Darkness' has moved his bishop on the chessboard. He certainly knows how to put the squeeze on...

Recently, after spending some time apparently ‘idling’ and catching his breath as Pluto stationed and stopped after his Retrograde or apparent backward motion, he now takes a shunt forward. In Venus Retro Review a stationary period has been described as being similar to a train coming to rest at a station, when a planet refuels, exchanges passengers or freight and does some running repairs before it moves along once again. 
Pluto has been hanging around a section of the zodiac it occupied since around Christmas  2011. Much of the global political hot spots were being activated then Hot Spots & Lightning Rods - Uranus/Pluto 2nd Square and it was a time when much of the current volatile tensions had begun. Thinking back to that time, what was the biggest most challenging thing going on for you then? For one thing there is a strong chance in the months that followed, your journey involved the recovery and healing from some of the trying events experienced at that time. For the next month, the traces, echoes and shadows from that time may either come back to haunt you or hopefully, shine out like beacons in the landscape as huge triumphs – 'look what I have changed, look here is the result of putting my heart into it'

Since April, during Pluto's 'reversal', he passed over old ground, quite possibly cutting and slicing through much of what stood in his way, making sure that those odds weeds he thought he eliminated the first time but which for whatever reason persisted, now finally face the chop. No messing around and no stragglers allowed. Everything disposed of and sent off to another place, like the dump, compost heap or the charity shop. Of course there are other places where we could have relinquished 'stuff' which no longer served us, spaces such as therapy rooms, yoga mats, operating tables or exercise classes. In many cases 'excess weight' has just gone to an 'invisible place' and this time, hopefully, never to be seen again. OMG!

Pluto moves slowly so an entire generation will all share a similar perspective and sign. As those born now will all have this Pluto-Uranus square, this generation in 20 or so years time will be the movers and shakers in our world. 
Just as the whole globe is living this energy so too our psyches are picking up and responding to 6-8 degrees of Cardinal signs, as we all have these degrees rocking and rolling around somewhere in our birth charts. There may be some part of our lives where new shoots are peaking out of the undergrowth and something fresh may be appearing as if out of thin air. Like Harry Potter taking off his cloak of invisibility those around him say 'ah, he was there all along, we just didn't see clearly'.
Of course it follows that this is all the more intense if 5-8 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra & Capricorn) are active in your chart, in other words if you have any planets in those degrees. But before you smirk and breath a sigh of relief if you don’t, remember in the world and words of Monty Python - snakes are symbols from Pluto’s world - 'Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!'.......

Now that Pluto ‘His Royal Darkness’ is moving forward again does this mean that we too can ‘move forward’, get some things finally behind us and progress? Well yes and no, true he has been caught in the zap and flash of Uranus's Aries lightening bolt and it has shocked him to the core. Uranus flashes are a bit blinding and temporarily discombobulating for anyone.With Pluto and that square aspect between them the lightning bolts may have burned Pluto’s protective suit or revealed his invisible cloak. Pluto will gave as good as he gets of course, as he continually and relentlessly takes delight in pulling the plug on Uranus’s antics by turning the lights out and reinforcing the locks and chains. Pluto may have lost a little status, when astronomers denigrated it to a 'dwarf planet' and in 2006 was re-classified, however....don't be fooled size doesn't matter.....
