“Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.” Ann Landers
We live in a culture in which ‘having more’ is often automatically deemed better than ‘having less.’ So virtually anytime there’s a perceived chance that what we have or possess is thought to be at possible risk of loss our immediate response is normally to do whatever it takes to keep what we have firmly in our clutches. No matter that what we might be clinging to may be long expired!
That’s why, perhaps, in a left-handed way, we should maybe all be kind of ‘jumping for joy’ today because Pluto, the planet of exit doors and elimination, is stationing retrograde at 23 degrees of utilitarian Capricorn (2:45 pm). Whenever a planet stations, its energy is thought to be more potent that day. Meaning, we could possibly be getting clearer signs now of what should be pitched or trashed in our lives, for our own good.
Okay, in some cases, we may be able to get clearance to perform salvage operations or just do some creative refurbishing/reworking of existing elements and call it a day. In other words, not have to go through the heartbreak of experiencing a total wipeout or implosion! 🙂 Pluto is, after all, also a great ‘turnaround genius’ or ‘re-birthing agent.’
Too, on another level, it may be worthwhile or interesting now to simply study or observe the vast trail of waste that we are characteristically generating/leaving behind. What might that cryptic wagon train say or reveal about us? About how we are maybe managing/mismanaging our daily operations/resources? Where we may also possibly be overextended, as Pluto governs debt and indebtedness.
Transformational Pluto will be retrograde in Capricorn until October 3, when it will be turning direct at 20 degrees of the sign. Since Capricorn is also the sign that specifically governs career, government, and big business, there’s a chance now, and for the next few months, that we’ll be experiencing a type of ‘crisis of consciousness’ in those areas in particular. Perhaps becoming more aware of the ‘bugs in the systems’ that we’ve built – and what to do about them.

On This Day in History: On April 24, 1888, Eastman Kodak was founded by George Eastman. Astrologically, at the time, the planet Neptune, which rules photography, was nearing 29 degrees of artistic, yet financially-minded Taurus, a critical degree. Often when a planet is at 29 degrees, there’s an extra push or urgency to get things done. There’s also a summation, of sorts, of what has gone before while the planet has been in the sign.
Neptune was also forming a waxing, one-degree sextile to consolidating, organizing Saturn, newly-installed at 0 degrees of Leo, the sign of entertainment and the motion picture industry.
Lest we forget, we also currently have an ongoing sextile now, this year, between Saturn in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces. This influence is also thought to be very good for creativity and realizing our dreams, with structuring Saturn providing a floor or foundation for Neptune’s bountiful imagination and visions.
