Pluto Dominant March 16 Full Moon & Vernal Equinox
As I have been reporting in Earth Aquarius News during the last 5 years, transiting Pluto in Capricorn has finally begun a five-fold opposition to the USA Sun in Cancer. This has never happened before in our nation’s 238-year history. The first polarity struck five days ago on March 13 – in the midst of the Ukrainian-Crimea crisis with Russia, during the disappearance of Malaysian Airways Flight370, as General Motors admitted knowing they had faulty ignition switches in certain types of vehicles (leading to the deaths of at least 13 individuals during the past decade or so), and just following a rare speech on the Senate floor by Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein – accusing the CIA of a wide variety of crimes, cover-ups, and hacking into her Senate Committee’s computers.
Pluto will also oppose the USA Sun on May 18, 2014, January 4, 2015, August 18, 2015, and October 31, 2015. Transiting Uranus in Aries will be involved, too – many times in 2014 & 2015, both square to the USA Sun and opposite the USA Saturn. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin (born Oct. 7, 1952) appears to be a key agent in igniting many of America’s geo-political troubles at this time due to his being born with a Sun-Saturn conjunction in Libra, exactly triggering a square and conjunction to our natal Sun-Saturn 90-degree face-off in Cancer and Libra.
Therefore, it appears to be a macabre cosmic joke to
see that at the exact moment of the Sunday March 16, 2014 Full Moon and at the
precise time of the Vernal Equinox on March 20, 2014, transiting Pluto is
occupying the setting placement in Capricorn in both charts. Thus, in the maps
presented here, you will see Pluto exactly on the Descendant or 7th
house cusp in the Full Moon map for America (map shown above, which you can click on to enlarge) while Pluto is just 1 degree away
from the Descendant at the Vernal Equinox (with this map presented at the end of this feature, which you can click on to enlarge).
This extra dose of Pluto archetypes signifies various underworld, corrupt, manipulative, cathartic, and deeply transformational forces arrayed and fighting against or attempting to stifle the American people socially, economically, politically, and in many other ways. Pluto’s mysterious, often wealthy and elite potency may not only be coming from our enemies in the world (such as terrorists), but it could also reside within secret regions of our own government.
It is also noteworthy that in the disputed area of the Crimea (around the Black Sea), Jupiter is overhead near Kiev, Ukraine, while Pluto is below, and Uranus plus Juno are setting. This is quite a combustible combination of four celestial influences in both maps -- including Juno which, when negative, can represent rage coming from the small and dis-empowered, especially after decades of being pushed around by higher-vaster forces beyond their control.
Keep in mind that a Vernal Equinox chart can easily influence an entire three-month season – let alone an entire year. The main message for now is to stay alert and to see what is happening all around you, in the country, and abroad. Don’t accept anything at face value and which appears initially to be open and friendly – in regard to people, organizations, governmental agencies, and foreigners you don’t know. An optimistic frame of mind and expressions of goodwill can still keep you thriving, but as the old Sufi adage goes “Trust in God, but tie up your camel…”
