Wednesday night as Pluto was in its final hours in Sagittarius (a transit that has long been associated with religious extremism), Mumbai, India came under siege from terrorists. As of this morning, two of the remaining three standoffs appear to have been resolved. Terrorists have been cleared from the Oberol Trident Hotel and the Nariman House Jewish Center. There is still gunfire reported, as at least one gunman is occupying the Taj Mahal Hotel, according to CNN-IBN.
Pluto is in its final moments in Sagittarius until Dec. 18, 2241, when it returns to the sign of the centaur. Apropos of a major Pluto transit, the ingress to Capricorn is being attended by much drama and many truly unusual developments. And apropos of a change in historical eras, we are in a moment between two presidencies; two vastly different times of life.
