Transformational Pluto conjunct the South Node in ambitious Capricorn today is potentially a chance for us to gain deeper insight (Pluto) into how we have perhaps been (South Node) wielding or managing our power, control, or authority in the world (Pluto) in order to attain outward success (Capricorn).
The South Node represents our habits or ingrained behaviors, while Pluto symbolizes, among other things, penetrating awareness, the urge for power itself, and also governs the principle of death and rebirth.
This conjunction, ideally, gives us a chance to let go of, or purge, ways of being that are no longer reflective of who we are, or no longer appropriate for us, so that we can move forward. Moving forward, too, in this case, also suggests moving toward the more feelings-oriented North Node in Cancer, as the North Node signifies our future growth, or where we are heading. In other words, we are allowing ourselves, with this aspect, the freedom now to express more of what is in our heart (Cancer), while, at the same time, retreating from a position of feeling that we must always be in charge or control of everything and everyone (Capricorn). Capricorn can also expose our previous cultural conditioning that orients us to do, perhaps, what is socially acceptable rather than what is totally honest for us.
Since Pluto also symbolizes what is below the surface, or at our core, including the realm of the unconscious, it’s possible that we may also experience now elements, situations, or relationships that unite us with our buried or more distant past. Again, too, the purpose of this re-emergence of the past is not to haunt us or to lay a guilt trip on us, but rather, to free us from whatever has been trapped inside.
“Be not the slave of your own past – plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep, and swim far, so you shall come back with new self-respect, with new power, and with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
On a non-personal level, Pluto conjunct the South Node can also shed light on tangible things or structures that are broken down around us that need to be either fixed, repaired, or replaced. This could include, for instance, discovering hidden foundational issues in a house or building. Or maybe finding out about hard-to-detect plumbing or sewage leaks. Isn’t it interesting, too, how the outer structures of our lives will often symbolically mirror or reflect what is going on with us on an internal level?
