To you, dear Capricorn
I am a Capricorn myself and I know what you’re getting through these months, mainly if you are born between 22 Dec and 3 Jan. It’s about transiting Pluto.
The transit of Pluto through the zodiac is 248 years. Its influence is subtle, but intense. Pluto has such an erratic orbit that it spends from over thirty years in some signs to about a dozen years in others. We are lucky, dear Capricorn, because Pluto entered our sign on April 2008 and is going to stay here until March 2023, for “only” 15 years. Things will never be the same after Pluto passed through your natal sign.
Pluto is now at 12 degrees in Capricorn, so if you were born sometime during the last decade of December and the first days of January, you have already felt its influence. The rest of the Capricorn natives (born through 3 Jan-19 Jan) will know, reading this, what to expect through the next 10 years.
What you might experience is intense self–awareness and the urge to attain recognition as an individual with influence and power. No matter how much strength and power you have developed before this period comes along, you will want some more. If you are already a determined, dominating and independent person, your actions may become only a little more daring than usual. If you have not been able to exert yourself, to take chances with your destiny and to control people and situations in your life, the independent actions you take now might seem quite courageous to you and the people around you. Circumstances force or motivate you to make a new start in life or transform your lifestyle. The methods and the results are various and different for every Capricorn, according to each one’s birth chart, but the urge is the same for all. There is no guarantee that you will succeed on your own, but the result may not matter. You cannot escape the need to do whatever it takes to gain control over your life and what happens to you.
Your ego is inflated and suffers from the damages of the past if you let people take control of your life. If a relationship comes apart this time, it may be not due to the la lack of affection or communication, but because your ego was not allowed to grow or show itself within the relationship. Either you believe that you and you alone have to solve the problems or the events force you act like this, you are alone on the battlefield. In addition, you may retreat inwardly and isolate yourself. You reject help from others or nobody offers help, you are in this alone and the only one to blame or praise.
Solitude is not a good path to success, unless it is meant for creation and for a short time. Therefore, dear Capricorn, don’t isolate yourself in the mountains and caves. Offer yourself a time to think, but keep in touch with your dearest friends. Fight your desire to run away from people and force yourself to meetings, gatherings, conferences, parties and social events. This is the only way you can acquire the independence you dream of. Controlling your life doesn’t mean to give up living. It means keeping the best persons beside you.
As I said, the results of your efforts may be far from what you desire or expect. In its transiting path over your Sun, Pluto squares transiting Uranus, an aspect that affects Pluto and your Sun in a challenging way. With Uranus in transit, expect the unexpected. In square, expect sudden events that affect your entourage, friends, family or job; bad news in one aspect of life that affects you and your independence, if not directly, through those you love and care. It may be a parent with health problems that you have to deal with or a house that you lose in favor of the bank; you may lose a long term job as an employee and be forced to start another, this time as an entrepreneur; or you may find out your fiancé (whom you didn’t love or appreciate anyway) was cheating on you and you decide the separation. Anything you lose, there will be something else to gain in exchange. Even if you don’t see the gaining right away, you will see it through time.
Pluto is transiting your Sun and maybe your natal Mercury or Venus, as those little faster planets go close to the Sun. If it’s your native Venus in Capricorn, then Pluto might bring you your soul mate. This could be the time to establish powerful, karmic relationships (business or marriage). On the other hand, Pluto and Uranus in square might bring power struggle (with odds in your favor) confrontations.
If it’s your native Mercury that Pluto is transiting together with the Sun, your intellectual awareness deepens. You start to recognize hidden meanings and motivations behind the words, yours and the others. You might become interested in investigation, research, analysis or studies. You increase your influence within the community with your ideas and words or you have a strong will to do so.
Starting with June 2013, for a year long, Jupiter in Cancer will oppose Pluto in transit and your native Sun and maybe native Mercury and Venus. This will be a tough time, when you want more and can less. You might be tempted to risk valuable things for a chimera – don’t. Saturn is in your favor for a couple of years, but it rewards only hard work and persistence, so avoid gambling.
