A plutocracy is “government by the wealthy”, a plutocrat is a member of the ruling class, and as Pluto went retrograde April 9th, there was a major hissy fit between Obama and representatives of the wealthy status quo: the latter bared their fangs, dug in their heels, and signaled to the rest of us that they weren’t going down easy. When retrograde, it’s more likely to bring up things from the past, or make people attempt to return to an old way of doing things. The world is already on guard to expect the worst from those attempting to stay in power.
How are we affected individually by Pluto retrograde, April 9th-September 17th? Individually, we can expect strong feelings to surface, and to struggle with our own resistance, but on any level, eruptions and disruptions are within the context of transformation, because Pluto represents the urge to transform.
Pluto is in Capricorn, and shakes up our institutions and personal constructs. There’s chaos and pain, followed by a journey into the unknown, and through this character-building process, evolution takes place, and the structures of our lives and societies are reformed.
Relevant to the austerity measures put in place April 8th, is a prediction for America I left out of my January newsletter, because I didn’t understand it, plus it had an awful ring to it. (Feeling guilty for the omission, I posted an article about it January 13th called: Divination Chronicles: 2011 prediction decoded?“) I felt like it were the voices of cities and states talking in answer to the question, “How is the U.S.A. in 2011?”:
“Well, in the U.S. we are fine, but freak things happen that worry us.
We don’t get the intended benefit of austerity. We only have ourselves to rely on. We are desperate for favors.”
It alludes to some dark swerve the country takes that leaves people stranded, the probable fate of the disenfranchised with these cuts. People are going to react!
My fantasy is that President Obama is going to continue to surprise, however, and seriously stick it to the rich and get more money for Americans. Although it that happened it could be a mighty mitigating circumstance, astrology says it will be a contentious Summer in which people feel deceived.
How do we stay cool, calm, and collected? We have to have a nice place to go within our own heads. We have control over what we entertain in there. Here are some suggestions for creating a peaceful state within:
“First, do some nice things for yourself. How about turning off the phones and taking a bath? Breathing from your stomach, relaxed in warm water, is a good place to release energy, and then be open to a more satisfying plan for yourself. Also, a new ability to let go of the past can arise now in this naturally transformational time. Ask within yourself for whatever needs to happen, ask for whatever you can know that helps bring you inner peace. You can gain a sudden insight or knowing that way; perhaps you will suddenly forgive yourself for something, or come to a new self-understanding and acceptance.”
Another peace-promoting tip: whether we are doing bad things or good things, we are trying very hard in the coming months. So much is going on, we can be easily distracted. If that becomes a problem, stop the stimulation! Stop taking in what’s going on that doesn’t pertain to you and your goals, and be about your own transformation so the winds pick up around your intentions, and not your fears.
