Real Life Effects Of Pluto In Aquarius
I see darkness threatening humanity. I mean, I see a lot more than that, but this is my blanket statement.
@elsa. That's dark. I read that and flashed on all your progressed planets in Scorpio. I see it from another angle - maybe because Pluto is trining my Saturn and sextiling my Sun. (It's also squaring my Venus, so I definitely agree with you - just trying to make another point...)
Dennis Elwell has this idea that we need to look at things from a cosmological point of view. Meaning, what is the cosmos trying to do here with this Pluto in Aquarius??
I think cosmos is trying destroy humanity's dependence on materiality (Capricorn) and stuff, on having lots of stuff to keep ourselves secure. I see Capricorn as Scrooge - selfish, hungry ghost, all appetite.
Cosmos is saying (my guess) that we need to become more detached (Aquarius) and think of the collective, of all life. Value the non-material connection. Share. Is Cosmos saying this is the only way humanity will make it?
I see darkness threatening humanity too. But it's humanity's darkness that is the threat, or our own. I guess we should be glad that Pluto is coming to destroy what is not working, in order to make way for the new. It is clearly not working! It is scary though. My fear is in proportion to my attachment to the old way, to my own darkness. I can feel myself holding on, and that's where the fear is.
It's really difficult to answer this without getting political. I'll just comment from the perspective of having Cancer/Leo with Pluto hovering around the Capricorn/Aquarius axis. I hope that adults will be responsible in protecting children and children will not be further harmed - while at the same time not forced to conform. Issues of identity, ego, community and groupthink abound. As we see the effects on early-degree Fixed energy, late-degree Cardinal energy will need to step up and move society in the right direction while we have a chance. (I say "energy" instead of calling out individual placements because it's a collective responsibility and effect).
It's kind of obvious, but to frame it a little differently, the Leo/Aquarius axis is like the right brain/left brain.
We are seeing the shadow of the left brain dominant occupations. An example would be science and medicine. By the time Pluto finishes with Aquarius it should be apparent the balance is completely broken. We aren't living up to our potential using half of what we have. We need to develop both sides of the brain. It is important for all of us.
I agree with everything that has already been said, plus one additional thing: that there's no refuge. How do you hide from something like this? It doesn't care if you're young or old, good or bad, deserving or undeserving. Aquarius is so damned impersonal. Everyone is fair game. Pluto in Aquarius has barely even begun and I'm already deflated. Imagine 20+ years of this. I would rather face the devil than a souless robot that won't negotiate or cut deals, and has the tirelessness of a robot to boot.
Now I'm being dark! Best stop for now
So I had a relapse dream. Very common during recovery.
