Pluto In Capricorn / Pluto In Cancer

January 27, 2008 transiting Pluto and/or entered the first couple degrees of the sign Capricorn. On June 15, 2008 Pluto retrograded back into the previous sign of Sagittarius. On Sept. 9, 2008 transiting Pluto goes direct motion again, and by Nov. 28, 2008, PLUTO will reenter CAPRICORN. Pluto will remain in Capricorn until Nov. 19, 2024.

Capricorn is the last of the three EARTH signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn), and that is a powerful indicator about how the physical world and reality will be radically changing due to Pluto’s journey through that sign. It’s interesting how the current transits are so potent during the last few years of the Mayan calendar, through 2011 and 2012. In my opinion the old global ruling patriarchy, the generation born with Pluto in CANCER, will be exiting the planet in large numbers under this potent astrological transit. Not only will the negative global systems they’ve created and maintained during their lives fall, but, they will be the first generational group to experience transiting Pluto (in Capricorn) in opposition to their natal Pluto’s (in Cancer) since Pluto’s “discovery” in 1930! I suspect there will be mass numbers of these people dying as the Lord of the Underworld moves into an opposition within their lives, bodies, and awareness.

Pluto was physically discovered on Feb. 18, 1930. The day of its physical discovery it was 17° CANCER 46′ (minutes) 8″ (seconds) and it was Rx (retrograde).  CANCER and CAPRICORN are opposite signs. Here’s the 12 signs but in 6 polarity groups.


The Sabian Symbol (Dr. Marc Edmund Jones) for 18° CANCER reads:

“CANCER 18°  – A hen scratching for her chicks

This is a symbol of the maximum protection which life at large will provide for the individual in general, here given emphasis on the personal side. There are always high rewards for any effort which is self-consistent or industrious at best, and by the reverse implication of the symbolism it is always possible of human creativity to endow its own manifestations with a gift of self-being. The keyword is PROVISION. When positive, the degree is a marked capacity for meeting every  demand of existence advantageously and with a persisting self-fulfillment, and when negative, idle bustle and unprofitable labor.”

And the opposite degree to this reads:

“CAPRICORN 18° – The Union Jack

This is a symbol of the maximum protection which life at large will provide for the individual in general, here given emphasis on the social or political side. There are always high rewards for common effort, since the organized nation is able to bring benefits to man beyond anything any person or group could ever win in a lesser dimension of enterprise. A greater community of interest is exalted through every possible phase of normal and everyday being. The keyword is SUPERVISION. When positive, the degree is the self’s ever-widening spread of interest in its insatiable desire to leave some permanent imprint of itself on everything it touches, and when negative, smug or strong armed paternalism.”

Pluto was discovered while in the sign of CANCER (Water) and very soon, transiting Pluto will enter the opposite sign to that, CAPRICORN, last of the Earth signs. Astrologers talk about Pluto’s energies being “generational” because it moves or transits so very slowly. As you see it’ll be in CAPRICORN from Nov. 2008 until 2024. 16 years is a long time for a planet to be in one sign. Needless to say, millions of souls incarnate under one of these Pluto generational signs. My parents are of the Pluto in Cancer generation; I’m of the Pluto in Leo generation; my son is of the Pluto in Virgo generation and on and on it goes. Each generation carries the specific archetypal energies of the sign Pluto is in at the time of their birth. To really understand just the basics of this, one must have an honest grasp on what the signs (Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra) really mean and also what each of the planets (Pluto, Neptune, Saturn, Chiron) mean, and the elements (Fire, Earth, Air, Water) also. One then combines those qualities (and other things like aspects etc.) to interpret or read how things will most likely play out physically in the world.

Here’s a timeline of the years Pluto has spent in each sign, FROM IT’S PHYSICAL DISCOVERY, up to now. Pay attention to the generational groups born under each sign and also, think back as best you can, to what the world was going through during these periods.

  • Pluto in CANCER July 1913 – June 1939 = 26 years
  • Pluto in LEO June 1939 – Aug. 1957 = 18 years
  • Pluto in VIRGO June 1958 – Aug. 1972 = 14 years
  • Pluto in LIBRA Aug. 1972 – Sept. 1984 = 12 years
  • Pluto in SCORPIO Sept. 1984 – Nov. 1995 = 11 years
  • Pluto in SAGITTARIUS Nov. 1995 – Nov. 2008 = 13 years
  • Pluto in CAPRICORN Nov. 2008 – Nov. 2024 = 16 years

(There were months of course where Pluto was retrograde but I listed only the final direct periods for simplicity.)

The Pluto in CANCER generation are the folks that created and lived through WWII, the Great Depression, who wholeheartedly trust and believe their government and its leaders, their religious leaders, their social systems etc. They were a proudly patriotic group who unquestioningly believed that what their governments and other leaders told them was always 100% truth.

My Pluto in Leo generation were the first to carry very Aquarian/Uranian/Leo/Sun energies and consciousness in all sorts of wonderful higher and also dangerous, stupid ways. We were the original “hippies” who totally distrusted the Pluto in Cancer group and its entire Pluto in Cancer government leaders, its wars, its rules, its laws, its obsessive desire to control, blah blah blah. Of course not every person with Pluto in Cancer is a total unthinking sheeple, just as not every person with Pluto in Leo is a rebellious “system buster” or Lightworker either. Far from it. But there are energies at work within the different signs no matter what, and the Pluto in Leo generation were the first to carry energies outside the accepted 3D reality box and insisted upon thinking for itself. A lot of them pushed the envelope too hard, too long, and died because of it. A lot of that generation couldn’t continue carrying (within themselves) such higher vibrating energies and they slide back down into enjoying being told what to think and do and when etc. But there has always been a small group of the Pluto in Leo generation (First Wave Lightworkers/Wayshowers etc.) who’ve maintained this “System Busting” energy/consciousness/attitude ever since the  late 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s. They are currently many of the global teachers, lectures, authors etc. sharing a variety of higher frequency information or “Light” about life and reality outside the accepted BOX (again, the first of the Lightworkers).

The Pluto in Virgo generation is coming into its own now as adults and are also pushing for better, cleaner, healthy, more efficient, sane and heart conscious ways for humanity to live on, and with planet Earth and its many animals and other lifeforms. They will heal/transmute so much in unseen ways and right within their physical bodies. The Pluto in Virgo generation will and are doing much now to bring back the ancient Goddess consciousness (Virgo) as the way to view Earth and be the caretakers of this planet.

Transiting Pluto REENTERS Capricorn on Nov. 28, 2008 and…just look at that!?!  28=10=1 and 2008=10=1 and Nov. is the 11th month. In other words the DAY Pluto reenters the last of the EARTH signs, Capricorn, it reads numerically like this: 11-1-1.

Once transiting Pluto reenters CAPRICORN, it will naturally be making a slow and ongoing OPPOSITION to the entire Pluto in CANCER generation. This is huge! Transiting Pluto will be in OPPOSITION to CANCER, the sign it was in when first discovered. The Lord of the Underworld doesn’t mess around but cuts right to the chase and takes care of business. I believe the transit of Pluto in the sign CAPRICORN will be monumental all on its own; but add to that it’s long OPPOSITION to CANCER and that whole generational group of people, and I sense we’re looking at the coming demise of the old lower patriarchal systems and their Pluto in Cancer creators in record time! The so-called “end times”, what I call The Downfall of Atlantis Part Two, will arrive for those old, lower world controllers and creators of wars, global control and manipulation, and other horrible things done to humanity/earth/animals and all planetary life. Here comes the Lord of the Underworld patriarchy, and He’s got YOU locked in His long opposition cross-hairs.

And changing Pluto’s status from “planet” to “little piece of icy rock floating in space” isn’t going to stop the massive Plutonian force that’s going to oppose a whole generation, and its many negative global systems. Just like it didn’t stop or reduce the influence of the conjunctions and subsequent direct downloading of energies from the GC (Galactic Center of the Milky Way) via Pluto, and then to humanity on Earth over these past couple of years. Nice try guys but it didn’t work and it is time to pay the piper—or rather the Ferryman.

Cancer is a WATER sign—Capricorn is an EARTH sign. Pluto transiting Capricorn and in opposition to Cancer, will be shining the spotlight on the earth/water elements. Needless to say earthquakes and underground situations, and flooding of homes, properties, real estate (Cancer) will most likely be increased. Those Capricornian powerful “authority figures”, people and systems that have created and maintained so many companies and corporations that have harmed humanity and earth, will come under direct fire from Pluto during this potent and powerful period of mega changes. Changes both within the old lower vibrating planetary systems, but also within people’s consciousness about how we all have not respected our planetary Home and living quarters—Earth. This transit of Pluto in Capricorn—opposition to Cancer (Father/Mother)— will be painful on many levels but it is necessary to break down all that must be laid to waste now. Pluto transiting through Capricorn will also be teaching humanity about taking individual responsibility instead of handing over YOUR POWER to any global Capricornian “authority figures” (governments, religious leaders, political leaders, police, military, corporations, etc.) who are ever-ready and willing to take it from you! This transit will affect us all and on many levels. Take back your power and don’t fear being a powerful, potent individual, who can think and feel and make better and higher decisions for yourself finally. This is an ancient global situation really, and Pluto in Capricorn at this time (so close to 2011 and 2012) will be resolving many energetic layers of planetary problems that humanity has resisted dealing with within themselves for a very long time. But many will now.

And to make sure that everything and everyone that needs to be dealt  with finally is, added to this incredible Pluto in Capricorn transit, will be the ongoing transit OPPOSITIONS between SATURN in Virgo (EARTH) and URANUS in Pisces (WATER). To me, this on top of everything else is powerfully symbolic of the final death throes of the past Age of Pisces and all its horrific and deliberate distortions that have oppressed humanity for the past 2,100 some years. So, we’ve got Pluto doing all that it will be doing while in Capricorn and opposing the old patriarchal planetary rulers, those elder Pluto in Cancer people, AND we’ll also have Saturn (ruler of Capricorn) in Virgo (another EARTH sign) opposing Uranus (ruler of Aquarius) in Pisces (the past astrological Age and a WATER sign and its opposite sign VIRGO) moving through oppositions to each other beginning Nov. 5, 2008 through 2010. Say it with me people—out with the Old and in with the New and vastly Higher! My god this is going to be spectacular. Painful, scary, unnerving, wild and woolly to be sure, but once again this is THE death process of ALL that’s limited and controlled humanity and Earth for negative, selfish, greedy, and power obsessed reasons. The raping and pillaging of humanity and Earth will enter its “End Times” via these potent astrological transits starting in November 2008, and their influences will cross multidimensional boundaries as well. I suspect that more people may perceive some “negative” nonphysical beings and also some of the (human) dead, due to the Lord of the Underworld being in Capricorn. Fear not, take BACK your power now and manifest the highest of both Capricorn and Pluto and blow every ones minds and hearts. It’ll be so worth it.  🙂

Remember Barbara Marciniak’s channeled Pleiadian term of “Keeper of the Frequency”? Well, this is what the rest of us will be doing during the Great Fall of the patriarchy and it’s numerous ugly, negative, planetary systems and the death of the past Piscean Age. Keep a higher frequency maintained within yourself and don’t look back at the falling of Sodom and Gomorrah—aka—the Downfall of Atlantis Part Two.
