ALL CHANGE – PLUTO POWER AND YOU
Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, may be interested in astrology (or not) but she is certainly living her new Pluto cycle to the full. So can you. It’s about power and it’s potent right now, in May 2016 – with ongoing benefits, if you use it. One specific department of your life is where you can push a lot of new buttons and see life-changing results. You can find out more about that below. The rules? To gain the power, use your willpower. Angelina Jolie (below) is a Gemini who has used her Pluto cycle (charity) since 2008 to transform her life from Hollywood actress to global humanitarian superstar.

WHY PLUTO, WHY NOW?
I’m not saying you haven’t had a similar cycle before. Of course you have, more than once, since 2008 when Pluto first moved into this sector of your chart (above). If you think about Capricorn Kate Middleton, as she was then, you’ll quickly realise that her appearance/image/title changes have been there for her three times in the last eight years. Once, when she married. Twice, when she gave birth to her son. Three times when she gave birth to her daughter.
Now, she is using her fourth Pluto moment to relaunch herself at the National Portrait Gallery in London and on the cover of British Vogue. By the way – as someone who began her career writing about astrology at Vogue – I have to say, that cover is one of their very best.
Again, I don’t know if the Duchess of Cambridge is interested in astrology (although Princess Diana certainly was). She has managed to choose exactly the right colours and style for her sign, though. Capricorn is an earth sign associated with earthy browns and rusts. That’s also a bit of a mountain girl look, she has there – suitable for the mountain goat royal.
In your own life, you have already had three stunning opportunities to completely transform the area of your life I mentioned, above – since 2008. Now, in May, you have a fourth. It began slowly, in a small way, when Pluto was Station Retrograde on Monday 18th April.
Pluto begins to climb in your life, intensifying as he moves backwards, forming a stunning trine to the True North Node at 16 Virgo on Thursday 9th June. He does it again on Sunday 12th June. His ‘backward’ motion (actually an illusion, but it has real effects in astrology) means you have two bites at the cherry. Maybe three. What is the cherry? Potency.
PLAYING PLUTO’S GAME
Cancerian Benedict Cumberbatch (in Sherlock, above) is another real-life example of someone using his/her Pluto power the right way.
He is currently having a key partnership cycle. It began in 2008 when he was just another actor, but his double act with Martin Freeman as Dr. John Watson has transformed his fortunes. In this cycle, he also married. More Pluto power.
Prince William is another Cancerian. In the same cycle, he married Kate Middleton. Astrology does not have to be complicated. Sometimes it is very simple!
There is only one way you get the reins on a Pluto transit. You have to summon up all your willpower to control yourself, and use enough self-mastery, to get what you want. Pluto moves quite slowly. It can take months, but the impact is also lasting. Pluto sometimes teaches us about the need to take control, by giving us critical moments when we feel we don’t have the reins at all.
Just as you’ve had three solid chances to find lasting control since 2008, I am sure you can remember one truly difficult period in your life when this Pluto cycle showed you just how helpless you were to take charge, or assert yourself, in the face of situations, organisations or people which took your power away.
It is through these extremes that we ultimately figure out how very much we do want to run our own life, and how we’re going to do that. In May 2016, the answer is willpower.
Jupiter Trine Pluto – Sunday 26th June 2016
On Sunday 26th June at 12.30pm in London, Jupiter at 16 Virgo will trine Pluto at 16 Capricorn. I hope you can see now how Pluto’s retrograde (backwards) motion means he can stick at a certain spot in your chart – in this case it’s 16 degrees of Capricorn, where he is also due to make his power felt on 9th June.
This ‘repeat, repeat, repeat’ pattern intensifies everything to your advantage. The beautiful trine from Jupiter the planet of opportunity and solutions, to Pluto, on 26th June will take you higher, not only in the area of your life I mentioned at the start of this story but in a second one too. What is it?
Well, if you do the work, between now and June – you stand to gain as follows.
