These are exciting times if you’re into mundane astrology: the astrology of worldly events. You’re familiar with this modality — it’s most of what I write in Planet Waves. It’s great fun because it does not involve much speculation. Rather, you watch the astrology and the world become holograms of one another. It’s almost photography, or maybe a sketch artist drawing a scene.
What we are witnessing now in the world is typical, even predictable, of what you would expect from combining an eclipse with the most potent planetary alignment since the 1960s. You would expect the world to be on the brink of war. It was only a month after the Saturn-Pluto opposition in the summer of 2001 that the World Trade Center came down and the U.S. began its ongoing wars with Afghanistan and Iraq.
Saturn-Pluto is emphasizing the need to prioritize the truly meaningful issues. Make sure you’re taking care of them, and not getting lost in the sauce of things that really don’t matter so much. Many issues that people have a tendency to push back are the very things that will be coming to the surface under the influence of Saturn-Pluto.
