Pluto Transits - Global and Personal Perspectives
We have come to comprehend that life is very much more complex, hidden and undecipherable than we had ever thought. So this is the essence of what Pluto’s astrology points to in a horoscope – how do we experience transcendence? How do we cope with the fact that we are both powerful and powerless, light and dark, saintly and satanic? Pluto’s domain is beyond the beyond – as far out as it gets, at least within our current reach of comprehension; it goes beyond duality.

Personal Pluto Transits
A crisis occurs, a watershed is crossed, something dies and there is a resurrection. Then a slow process of recovery gets underway until the years have passed and we can look back proudly at our ability to have withstood such a challenge and still managed to have bounced back. These are life-defining times.
As we have seen, the effects of trying to use that power for personal gain can lead to catastrophe. The greed of the rich has brought our species to the brink of self-annihilation. We have the power now; will we use it collectively for the good of all, or for selfish purposes? The astrology of Pluto’s position on this point is quite clear – there is only one right answer to this question and the penalty for a wrong answer is dire and permanent.
Corridors of Power
We see now how nuclear war is more of a threat, how racism is on the rise along with firming up boundaries and accentuating national identity, and we also see growing stronger the corporate independence and supremacy that is arising out of this surge of the right-wing, the would-be fascists. Pluto is in evidence in all of this. It is a power-play at the highest level of statehood, nationality, religion and social structuring: it is in Capricorn.
Pluto Astrology and Trump
A New Democracy
Perhaps it is time for a new over-arching governance principle; in its current form Democracy is outdated. It certainly was a good idea when compared to what it replaced, which was the tyranny of kings and such like, but now we have insufficient power to resist being taken over by the Corporate Dragon.
We need to transform what we think of as Democracy; it has so far proven itself unable to prevent a truly defective person like Trump being allowed to sit on the world throne, it must be replaced by something better – something that protects us better from the lies of power-possessors and the greed of corporations and, most importantly, defends the principle of Justice.
