I am more aware nowadays than ever before that something major is occurring. These are times of such significance that we are lost for any real model of what it might be that is happening now. In some profound sense reality itself has shifted, and is shifting still. We don't really know what's happening but it feels like we've been cut loose and are awash on a great river of change. This is the feeling of Pluto in Capricorn - a bedrock shudder.
Whenever Pluto went through Capricorn in days gone by there was a large scale shift of political power. We think of the birth and death of Rome, the rise of the Pope’s role in politics, and the challenge against this by Henry 8th, we think of the Boston Tea Party more recently, which sets in motion the end of the extraordinary influence of the British Empire as the USA claims world dominance. These events took place when Pluto transited Capricorn. This transit is reoccurring now in our current era, between 2008 and 2023. During this 16 year period we can confidently expect global political power to be entirely reoriented. It may be that another country becomes able to challenge US supremacy, perhaps following USA’s internal degeneration, but it could equally be that a new paradigm emerges and the corporation not the state becomes the dominant force. And then our allegiances to locations will be replaced by corporate loyalty. This type of thing is seen in a different form in today's world – where loyalty of faith exceeds loyalty of country of residence.
