Pluto in the sign of the Goat
The regeneration of the structures
Pluto, the planet of regeneration, definitely entered Capricorn on November 27th, 2008 (*1) and it will remain in that sign until March 2023 in the first instance (*2). Pluto is one of the exterior planets because it requires an extended period of time to complete its orbit around the Sun and that is why its effects are considered to be generational. The time Pluto stays in a given sign varies between 12 and 25 years, due to the eccentricity of its orbit.
Pluto's energy brings a profound transformation, which will disrupt the utilization of resources, structures and hierarchies so precious to Capricorn, not as volatile changes, but rather as deep renewals with lasting results. Transformation processes will tend to be slow or at least there will be a sense of maturation related to changes; in some cases, it will be difficult to accept the renewal itself and in other cases, a plan for the medium/long term will be developed. In all circumstances, transformations can bring certain dose of crisis, which will depend on the course initially taken: disturbance can be minimal and progressive if the direction has been well aimed; on the other hand, crisis can arise if the model, system or structure is inconvenient for evolution. Crises may occur because of very complex situations or change implementations producing diverse reactions, such as controversy, discussion or opposition, especially if they cling on to previously established forms. It is important to remember that every crisis is an opportunity, and it is up to us to seize it!
As with the mythical Phoenix, some sort of "death" comes with the type of regeneration that Pluto brings about in the sense of a transcendental renewal to achieve a total rebirth. It is important to recognize, accept and flow with such transformations both at the individual and collective level in order to evolve, because resistance and attachment to obsolete structures will produce painful crises with no positive results. Moreover, if people truly understand that excessive rigidity impedes a constructive advance, they will be able to live this transit with the certainty that the associated renewals will allow to lay much better foundations.
Pluto's transit through Capricorn is an opportunity to produce a very important change in resource management, so all resources are used in a more prudent and efficient way, or else we are at risk of reaching a point when their use becomes restricted because supplies have been exhausted. In this regard, the implementation of strategies/systems allowing to save energy and take care of natural reserves will play an important role; even though the motivation will be finding practical solutions with economic sense instead of altruistic ideals, the effect will be beneficial in general. However, every coin has two faces and it is possible that some groups try to preserve their grasp on certain resources at any cost through greedy strategies; the more ambitious these groups get, the stronger will be the shock these groups will produce to all people affected by the services and resources they handle. Consequently, it is necessary for all of us to reflect on the way all resources, power and willpower are managed, both individually and collectively, in order to accept and promote the renewals needed to approach and reach objectives: obsolete ways will have to disappear either with good will or forced by the circumstances; excessive spending will promote external restrictions, while a responsible use and conservation will allow a productive resource management.
Pluto in Capricorn is offering us the possibility to review our set of values, by giving us a choice between being enormously ambitious to get more at the material level or preserving what we have while realizing their true value.
Pluto in Capricorn offers the energy needed to renew or destroy power structures as we know them today, so that established government forms and political groups adapt to changes that allow the introduction of better state and national resource management; the purpose should be to promote measurable advances or to reach vital goals for all the nations of the world. Those governments capable of recognizing that renewal is needed and willing to implement pertinent measures to undergo restructuring will bring substantial benefits to their citizens.
This transit can bring a unique opportunity for some countries to change in such a way to produce a quantum leap for their wellbeing; all citizens are responsible for suggesting new ideas, collaborating to implement the change and demanding results to their rulers. However, in many cases, some states and political associations will hold onto the current power mode and try to increase the control through fear, either by dominating directly or by selling the idea of the much needed protector as a solution to avoid worst problems, but restricting individual liberties.
Reflection and collective action will be needed in each community to keep the balance of powers within each of them, otherwise, radical disruptions may occur in the lives of all involved; there is no space for carelessness or apathy. Other power structures, such as economic and religious groups will have a unique opportunity to renew their organizations with the purpose of keeping their respective prestige or power share, although it is quite possible that regeneration comes with the fall/decadence of some groups which refuse to the necessary reform and the formation of other groups that substitute them with purposes/perspectives more related to the new evolutionary foundations.
In general terms, this is an ideal lapse for numerous state secrets and critical clandestine information to come to light, which can shake public opinion and trigger deaths or transformations of the organizations and people involved, either literally or allegorically.
Business models will change notoriously as a consequence of the diverse transformations in worldwide power organization.
Capricorn is related to seniority, so now more than ever attention should be focused on increasing life expectancy, caring for seniors and introducing the necessary changes to improve their quality of life in a more and more accelerated society with a larger senior population. Consequently, it is expected an important transformation of current geriatric and gerontological models. A simple personal reflection inducing family and social attitudes including new needs, the expansion of professional services in this area both at commercial and social levels within communities, are fundamental elements for all human beings during Pluto's transit through Capricorn.
Engineering and Architecture
The renewal of construction models, techniques and materials will be important during Pluto's transit through Capricorn, in order to achieve more stable and lasting structures; therefore, research in this area is favoured.Now then, it is foreseeable that many buildings currently standing would be demolished, either as a result of improper use of resources/techniques when they were originally built and inducing an investigation to get to the root of the problem or because those structures represent obsolete concepts/situations that need to be destroyed at the physical level, in order to produce total rebirths in the collective consciousness.
Earthquakes can reach notorious magnitudes in some parts of the planet or they can be more frequent than usual, as a result of the urgent need for adjustments in the Earth's interior, especially in volcanic regions. Even though people may think that nature's actions or natural disasters are not related to human attitudes, our thoughts, actions and attitudes progressively impregnate the environment where we live, to the point where they manifest as energy emanations of different forms and cause earth structures to readjust because of those crystallizations. Consequently, it is very important to harmonize discordant energies through practices such as meditation, positive visualization, etc.
Mining is another sector which can be highlighted during Pluto's transit through Capricorn, either because new mineral deposits are discovered or because interesting findings result in relation to the use of resources extracted from mines.
Much more buildings and structures can be found during this transit in comparison with recent times. This is especially true for structures that have been hidden, lost or covered by other structures, as well as resources buried in caves. It is also foreseeable that current excavations continue with much more interesting revelations than what has been exposed so far. The importance of these discoveries is based on our capability to recognize the value of recovered ancestral knowledge and resources, using both in a practical way for the common good; in both cases, the scientific community and groups that claim to be "authorities" on certain subject can be shaken, because they will have to admit that new evidence implies a review, rejection or substitution of concepts considered as absolute truths; once more, the "authorities" on certain areas of knowledge can be staggered by the need to accept the change that is encouraged by elements too tangible to be denied.
Pluto's transit through the sign of the Goat is an opportunity to renew obsolete structures and establish firm foundations, while achieving the vital goals of this evolutionary stage of humankind.
