2009, A Look at Your Personal Year
Focusing especially on Pluto in Capricorn, the continued Saturn opposition to Uranus, and the major stellium (conjunction) of Jupiter, Neptune, and Chiron during May and June of this year:
Briefly, here is the way an astrologer does a “horoscope” for the coming year:
Firstly and obviously, Pluto will spend its first full
year in Capricorn which it hasn’t done since 1768. Reams could be written about
this, but basically it checks and alters our societal forms and structure, such
as governments. Don’t fool yourself, it will be
intimately involved with us personally too, not just affecting the collective.
What does it mean? Personally, it’s clearly time to “get with it” and make your
best effort. “Leave the past behind” is the best advice. Collectively, and in
all nations, it questions whether we are governing ourselves in humane,
effective and fair ways. Pluto will be there for the next 16 years (it’s a
generational planet) but its first year should be a doozy,
eh Wall Street and
Secondly, Saturn and Uranus will continue to oppose one another. Saturn, representative of the collective conservative energy opposes URANUS, those of changing, progressive energies. We should be careful to try to integrate these two energies, not just let them divide us further. Is it coincidental that they were exactly opposite each other for the first time on the morning of the election this past November 4th… I think not. They will oppose one another two more times in 2009.
Thirdly, and this has NEVER happened before: expansive
Jupiter (encouragement,) Neptune (spirit,) and Chiron (healing) will
Now, keeping those 3 major events in mind, the astrologer then rotates the charts for each sign…
If you are an Aries, the chart is viewed as it is displayed at the start of this section, i.e., with Aries in the “first house” which is always between and on the clockface. Planets express themselves differently in each of the different houses - i.e., you will experience the brunt of their forces in specific areas of your life such as relationships, health, job, etc. Read on the internet about “astrological houses” to learn more. It is too expansive of a topic to be addressed here. Or, consult my past newsletters where each “house” has been carefully delineated.
So, for all Aries on the planet, generically, they are
facing PLUTO (PL) in the TENTH HOUSE, SATURN opposite URANUS (SU) between the
SIXTH and TWELFTH houses, and finally, the stellium of JUPITER, NEPTUNE, and
Another example, say you are a Sagittarian, we rotate the chart so that Sag is in the first house, or to our left and the result looks like this:
But this time, the PLANETS are still in the same SIGNS but
in different relative HOUSES. And, for all Sagittarians on
earth. Pluto (PL) will exert its influence on the SECOND house, JUPITER,
NEPTUNE, and CHIRON (
Then, we blend and interpret thusly:
Aries - PL in X, there will be a concerted effort to make
great headway in your career. Aries needs to challenge themselves;
if you’re caught in a dead-end job, you really need to find a way out or at
least a way to create adventure in your vocation. SU in VI-XII means that
you’ll need to blend your works skills with what’s demanded of you. I know you
like to do things your way at all times, but it won’t work now - you’ll need to
remain flexible and realize that sometimes, others know a better way. Blessings
(Now, we rotate the chart once more so that Taurus is in the position of the first house, etc.)
Taurus - PL coming out of your IX now will give you the
desire to start to address your long-held (and probably outmoded) philosophies.
Taurus doesn’t change easily, but does so steadily and effectively. You are in
the mood to totally uproot (PL) your old ideas (IX) in exchange for newer, more
progressive ones! SU, you will start to see the direct correlation between what
you are getting and what you are giving! Saturn will encourage you to put out
more effort in all your relationships. Finally,
Gemini - The usually light-hearted Twins now go deep,
deep, deeper as intense Pluto transits VIII, the house of intense emotions. Geminis find more to relationships now than they ever knew
existed. The grass ISN’T always greener somewhere else. You will need to pay
your dues (SU) as you always want to explore new vistas (Uranus in X,) but
Saturn (IV), and home responsibilities demand your time as well. You need to
not ignore this, as firming up your foundation (IV) will go a long way towards
paving a whole new future soon. And the payoffs will clearly be seen as the
Cancer - Relationships really intensify for you too (PL
Leo - PL in VI will urge you to really focus on your job skills.
We know you’re creative, but there is a higher octave you can achieve in your
work - buckle down harder and it will really pay off - you have the courage. SU
will test your ability to have real self-worth regardless of how you feel about
your relationships or think others feel (II vs VIII
houses.) Opportunities for great matches abound in the intimacy department as
Virgo - PL in V will mark a time for you where it will
become very important that you surpass the Virgoan
demands to be productive and give of yourself more emotionally. That’s the key
here. Being a “good Virgo” who always does “what you’re supposed to do” won’t
always fulfill you emotionally. No one is keeping score. SU in your home sign
will demand that you become “real” in all your relationships; this should not
be hard for you as Virgo is one the most honest, what-you-see-is-what-you-get
signs. Rewards (
Libra - Everything pivots around deep-seated emotional
release now for Libra with PL in IV! The usually mild-mannered, even-tempered
Librans now find themselves not being so patient anymore! PL coming from IV
wants deep commitment, not just pleasant sounding-board verbal exchanges. It is
time to stop settling for talk; now is time for dedication. SU is hard to pin
down coming out of XII-VI. Karma has caught up with you and you really need to
buckle down and take care of yourself - in all ways. Creative outlets,
especially involving children (
Scorpio - You will barely notice PL in
Sagittarius - PL in your II means it’s time to really get
after building a healthy sense of self-worth. This can also be reflected by a
new, more responsible attitude toward your finances. Sweep the deck clear. Keep
your arrows aimed high and you will go very far this coming decade. Work hard
at your job; don’t just make promises, and it will pay off with all types of
new opportunities (
Capricorn - This is YOUR TIME to make your move -
literally (PL I!) No more talk here, it’s obvious, you’ve known it was coming
for ages. No more coloring insides the lines. Pluto is in YOUR sign now; that
means your POWER
Aquarius - PL in XII brings many things heretofore
unconscious to the surface. Now is the time to meditate, to get past-life
regression, to open a journal, or any type of self-reflection. Aquarians have
powerful minds. It’ time now to get your inspiration
from deep within instead of just computing the facts that are available. SU
requires that you deal evenly with respect to the worth of your partnership
(VIII-II) as well as your own. They are the same. Finally,
Pisces - And last but not least: PL exerts its power in
your XI. That means it’s time to do what you really want to do. Your
aspirations are usually quite non-earthy. That’s OK, go for it! PL brings out
your passions and for too long now others have told you how “unpractical and
dreamy” you were. So what? Follow your dreams now and before you know it, they’ll
all be following you like Forrest Gump! SU asks that you start to tame some of
the wild seeds you have grown since Uranus entered Pisces in 2003. This is not
contradictory, do your thing, but don’t live in castles in the sky! Finally,
From Cathy Pagano
An excerpt from her Capricorn New Moon article
Re: Pluto in Capricorn
…This season, Americans are resonating to this archetypal energy once again. After just a few months of Pluto moving into Capricorn, we've seen the veneer of respectability and responsibility being stripped from our financial systems and governmental structures. And we're just looking at the outer layers of decay! The size and scope of the greed and corruption is already overwhelming. Wait until we find out what these folks have really been up to! We have 16 more years as Pluto moves through Capricorn to peal back the layers of corruption and misuse of power so we can finally create the type of government that is truly of, by and for the people…
