I wrote this in February, 2022. Today is one of the exact aspects…
A lot of people have asked me about the US Pluto return. I’m not that interested in mundane charts. It’s not my area of expertise but I am interested in sociology, psychology and astrology so I’ll write about what I do know about.
Unfortunately, I will have to contradict myself in this post. This is another reason I’ve avoided writing about this. It’s a sticky issue for me but I’ve decided to go ahead and share my thoughts on this.
First, there will be three Pluto returns in the US chart on these dates:
February 20th, 2022
July 11th, 2022
December 28th, 2022
There is a thread discussing this here – Pluto Return of US.
Second, I would not count on some giant event on these dates. While it’s possible, it’s not likely because that’s just not how Pluto works.
Pluto is SLOW. It signifies decay. The United States has been in decline for decades.
It may help to compare this to my spine. It took many years for it to twist up and rot. Did it happen on the day that Pluto was conjunct my ascendant / physical body? No. I would expect the same in this situation.
Capricorn is associated with structure, rules and government. Is our government rotten. Uh… yeah. So this process is well underway. After a lifetime spent in astrology, I would not expect anything in particular to occur on these dates…
Theoretically, these dates would mark the high/low points of intensity. But if you think about a devastating storm coming through, that leaves an area devastated, does an exact time matter? The result is the same.
Or how about an apple, rotten to the core. Do we know when the decay began or peaked? Does it matter?
Third, Pluto transits wipe things out. Post this event or process, the thing does not magically reconstitute itself. Think of the rotten apple…
It falls to the ground. It will decay and perhaps be picked by birds down to the seeds. At this point, the apple would be dormant. At a point in the future, one of those seeds might take root and you’d have a new (legacy) tree. You see again that this is a process.
Fourth, the process takes time. A LOT of time. Decades at least.
- If you doubt me consider Pluto transiting Libra which wiped out marriage. 50 years later, relationships are still “transforming”.
- How about Pluto in Scorpio and all the incest that was exposed? Are we done with that? Not even close.
- Pluto in Sagittarius. Shadow side of religion (sex scandal) and publishing. These things are also not fixed.
Now this is a PLUTO return. Do you really think it makes sense to single out a day?
Fifth, this is where I have to contradict myself and possibly anger people – there still may be a major event on one (or all) of these days. But why? Here comes the ugly…
In astrology you often read these words, “you can’t make this up.” This is said when an event matches the astrology of the day to a magnificent degree. I’ve said it myself though not recently!
I’ve not said it recently because I’ve learned that not only can you make it up. It’s a common occurrence. The event is orchestrated.
This is no different than a couple electing the day of their wedding. It’s just on a much larger scale. So if we see something devastating on one of these days, you can bet it was planned.
These are my ideas.
What do you think?
