How March 23rd 2023 Changes Everything
On March 23rd, 2023, Pluto leaves Capricorn. It is the beginning of the end of one of the toughest career cycles of our lives. If you have anything in Capricorn in the Tenth House of your birth chart, it has been personal. Pluto, a symbol of intense transformation, has been in the sign ruling your career – or academic career – since 2008.
Pluto in Capricorn and the New World Order
On a global scale, we are seeing the same cycle that saw the rise and fall of King George III and Captain Cook as well as Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. This is the cycle that ended the old United States and saw the beginning of the new United States. The slow Pluto transition from Capricorn to Aquarius, was last seen between 1762 and 1778.
Substitute Prime Minister Boris Johnson, former Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Vladimir Putin, Prince Andrew and Donald Trump for those kings, queens and captains who rose and began to fall between 1762 and 1778 – and you’re getting close. Pluto rules plutocrats. In Capricorn, they are at the top.
In this feature I will look at the personal impact on you, based on your Sun Sign and natal chart, but also show how the astrology proves that this is a period of decline and fall for all these men. And the old world.
Astrology is basically history, sociology and synchronicity. There is no great mystery to it. If you know the rules you can predict the future. The American flag we know today, arrived on the last transition period of Pluto in Capricorn, to Aquarius.
The Stars and Stripes represent the United States. We can predict a new American flag on this next transition period, taking us to the year 2044. The states you know today will cease to exist. The new America is waiting to be born.

Pluto in Capricorn Dates
Pluto in Capricorn doesn’t just start and stop. It fades in and out. So we have a transition period, starting on March 23rd 2023, as Pluto goes into Aquarius, utterly changing your life – then back into Capricorn – until Pluto is finally out for good.
Let’s start at the beginning, though. Just like a film, Pluto in Capricorn faded in, and he will fade out. Remember these dates when applying them to your sign and chart, which I’ll discuss at the end of this feature.
Thinking about your life since 2008, if you do have Capricorn natal chart factors, then you have probably lost one or more jobs; transformed your professional life; found the most powerful people or organisations have strongly affected you.
The Pluto in Capricorn-Aquarius Transition
January 27th 2008 – Pluto enters Capricorn for the first time in 248 years.
June 15th 2008 – Pluto goes back into Sagittarius.
November 27th 2008 – Pluto re-enters Capricorn.
March 24th 2023 – Pluto enters Aquarius.
June 12th 2023 – Pluto re-enters Capricorn.
January 22nd 2024 – Pluto enters Aquarius
September 3rd 2024 – Pluto re-enters Capricorn.
November 20th 2024 – Pluto enters Aquarius.
March 10th 2043 – Pluto enters Pisces.
September 2nd 2043 – Pluto re-enters Aquarius
January 20th 2044 – Pluto re-enters Pisces.
Pluto Fades In and Out of Signs
Pluto is about a global change in the balance of power, which has a trickle-down effect on your own life. That kind of massive transformation fades in and out. It doesn’t just land suddenly then vanish. On the last fade-in, fade-out cycle of Pluto in Capricorn and Aquarius, we saw huge worldwide shifts take place, between 1762 and 1778.
This photograph of Australia and New Zealand with a compass (Denise Jans) shows the path of Captain James Cook as he slowly claimed those countries for King George III and Great Britain.
A great deal of the last Pluto in Capricorn cycle was about that power grab. And, as Pluto went from Capricorn to Aquarius, the rise of people power in its place. What else happened the last time?
*The Stars and Stripes flag arrived, along with the US Declaration of Independence.
*Slavery was outlawed in Britain.
*The Stock Exchange was founded in Britain.
*Captain Cook claims Australia and New Zealand for Britain and is killed in Hawaii.
*The Industrial Revolution begins in Britain.
The Pluto in Capricorn Redo
What happens when Pluto retrogrades in Capricorn and goes backwards? There is a replay of professional, business and political matters from the time before, but those concerned (people or organisations) are losing their power and also losing their control over ‘the system’. Why? The system itself is collapsing. Let me explain.
June 12th 2023 until January 21st 2024: Pluto back in Capricorn 29, 28, 27 degrees retraces his steps from February 3rd 2022 until August 4th 2022; December 10th 2022 until March 22nd 2023. Finally, from September 3rd 2024, Pluto goes backwards again, at 29 Capricorn,, until a final sign-off on November 19th 2024. Expect a redo of February 12th 2023 to March 23rd 2023. This is really like watching a mountaineer walk backwards up Everest as it crumbles. For Everest, you can use any political or business system where plutocrats were in charge 2008-2023. For mountaineers, think plutocrats.
The Capricorn Exit and Aquarius Entry
These changes are typical of a Capricorn exit and Aquarius entry.
Capricorn rules Kings, Queens, Presidents, Prime Ministers and Premiers. Aquarius rules people power, the community, and a diverse population which shares control among itself.
In the last Capricorn-Aquarius transition we saw Americans, black and white, reject King George III and British rule (“No taxation without representation”).
We saw the beginning of the end of the slavery system. Crucially, money moved away from the monarchy and aristocracy and into the hands of the people.
The beginning of the end of Australia and New Zealand as British colonies, began. New inventions like the Spinning Jenny and the water mill put new power in the hands of the workforce, which would eventually produce the trade union movement.
Exact Timing for Capricorn Weather Events
In this story I will look at why the end of Pluto in Capricorn is also the end of what remains of any influence at all still held by Donald Trump, Melania Trump, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.
Exact timing for dramatic events, during the slow end of Pluto in Capricorn depends on faster-moving objects, also in Capricorn, like the Sun.
This next Sun in Capricorn period coincides with the January 2023 hearings into the attempt at mob rule over democracy by Trump fans. And Trump.
I’m writing this on 8th June 2022, but we can look a long way into the future.
December 2022, January 2023
We will go backwards and forwards with the changes to come, from December 13th 2022 until February 7th 2023 because Mercury Retrograde is in Capricorn. This includes evidence presented at the hearings.
In your own life, if you have Capricorn factors in the Tenth House of career, unpaid work and academia, the usual reshuffles and unwritten changes in the controls will take place in December 2022, January and February 2023.
It will bring a change in the balance of power, but it will also bring weeks of flux. The transition in your own industry, business, profession or field will be affected by technical problems, extreme weather, COVID-19 outbreaks or other typical Mercury Retrograde issues.
Dates to Watch in 2023
Watch the opposition between Mercury at 29 Cancer and Pluto at 29 Capricorn on Tuesday 11th July 2023. The lunar nodes move out of Taurus and Scorpio, the finance signs, one week later, on Tuesday 18th July.
That 11th July 2023 crossroads shows on Wall Street. If you have anything at 29 Cancer and/or Capricorn in your chart, that is an historic milestone for you. And for big business and big politics, too.
December 2023 into the year 2024 brings another Mercury Retrograde cycle in Capricorn. Mercury moves backwards and forwards in that sign from December 2nd until December 23rd, then from January 15th 2024 until January 21st.
This is highly significant because days later, on January 22nd 2024, Pluto makes the next temporary transition into Aquarius. We also find Mars in Capricorn in January 2024 along with the Sun, of course.
Again, if you have Capricorn factors in your Tenth House of career, unpaid work and academia, these are important months for reshuffles in power.
Ceres in Capricorn in 2024
Most astrologers ignore Ceres. I have learned you never ignore her. Ceres shows deal-making, compromises and a carve-up in power, influence and control.
She works together with Pluto (they are related in the Roman myth) and so the beginning of the end of the Trumps, plural, and their peculiar hold over the Republican Party, seems imminent with Ceres in Capricorn from February 8th 2024 until December 7th, 2024.
2024 seems like the final farewell for any remaining Russian influence over American politicians and corporate donors.
This is the sign-off year for Pluto in Capricorn, and Ceres in Capricorn will do the actual signing off, that year.
If you are a Premium Member in 2024, I’ll be giving you specific dates, about Ceres transiting your chart, closer to the time. It’s well worth watching Ceres and Pluto in Capricorn together during the transition out of the sign.
What Marie Antoinette Tells Us About 2024
I loved Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette.
Marie Antoinette’s rise to power (and fall) began during the Pluto in Capricorn and Aquarius transition period. She married Louis XVI in 1770 during Pluto in Capricorn. Later on, the planet changed signs and she lost her life.
The absolute power of Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI, rose and disappeared, as people power replaced monarchy and the aristocracy during the French Revolution. The transition is the beginning, but the beginning of the end.
Black Lives Matter and Kamala Harris
Astrology is history. The cycle before, 1762 to 1778 repeats now, with a modern spin.
This fade in (and fade out) of Pluto in Capricorn can easily be seen in the rise of Black Lives Matter in America and the triumph of a non-white woman as Vice President; Democrat Kamala Harris.
The arrival of cryptocurrency like Bitcoin is another echo of the past; the Stock Exchange in London was created in the 18th century, now people have created their own stockmarket.
More echoes from the past. A record number of non-white and female politicians now holds the balance of power in Australia. The arrival of electric cars, and the rise of solar and wind power, is a reminder of Richard Arkwright’s water mill and spinning jenny. New inventions empower the people as Pluto transitions from Capricorn.
What Astrology Saw in 1971
I really like The Rulership Book by Rex E. Bills. It was published in 1971 by the American Federation of Astrologers. Rex defines Pluto and Capricorn in separate chapters and you can see how uncannily accurate his book was, and still is.
Pluto rules –
Capricorn rules –
Your Sun Sign and March 23rd, 2023
This is the beginning of the end of 15 years of pressure, challenge and deep change for you. Your sun sign tells you where.
Aries: Professional life. Unpaid work. Social status and ambition. Academic career. Ambition and rank. The system.
Taurus: Foreigners and foreign countries. Multiculturalism. Publishing and broadcasting on the worldwide web.
Gemini: Joint finances. Superannuation and pension. Stocks and shares. Property. Banks and business. Charity.
Cancer: Marriage. Business and professional partnerships. Feuds and battles. Divorce and separation. Duets and duels.
Leo: Health. Wellbeing. Paid work, unpaid work and academia. Daily routine. Housework. Lifestyle. Mental health.
Virgo: Children. Pregnancy. Grandchildren and godchildren. Young relatives. Teenagers. Millennials. Sexual relationships.
Libra: The household. The family. Home town. Homeland. The house, apartment or land.
Scorpio: Writing. The worldwide web. The media. Twitter. Facebook. Broadcasting and podcasting. Publishing.
Sagittarius: Business. Stocks and shares. Income. Investments. Currency. Property.
Capricorn: Image. Reputation. Personal appearance. Branding. Publicity. Self-Promotion. Title. Name.
Aquarius: Religion. Hypnosis. Therapy. Counselling. Self-Help. Mediumship. Tarot. Meditation.
Pisces: Friendships. Groups of all kinds: political parties, clubs, trade unions, bands, societies, associations.
Remember, Pluto fades in and fades out. There will be a distinct bump near March 23rd 2023, and then you will spend until November 20th, 2024 going through the transition.
Your Natal Chart and Capricorn Factors
As you probably know, if you are a regular reader, I use the Natural House system, which I have found the most accurate for prediction. I began using it while I was writing the horoscopes for Harper’s Bazaar online and I now use it for world forecasts, but also your birth chart too.
If you are a Premium Member, one click can now show you if you have Capricorn factors in the Tenth House of ambition, achievement, status, rank, social position, the system, professional life, career, academic career, voluntary and honorary roles, and so on. It’s right at the top of your horoscope wheel. It’s your mountain top. Your peak.
The ‘what’ of your story depends on what you have in Capricorn and I will leave that up to you. If you are a Premium Member you can turn to your online library, on this website, to find out more.
You need to find out which planets, asteroids, angles and so on – are in Capricorn. It also helps to know what degree they are. If you have factors at Capricorn 26, 27, 28, 29 then you are experiencing transiting Pluto in conjunction with your Capricorn planets, and so on.
This takes time (it may take until 2024) and there will be demotions, promotions and mergers in your work place, field or industry. These will transform your life.
I’m happy to take questions in the Comments section, although I cannot promise to answer every one. As I look at my queue of comments now, I can see 14, 266 of them up ahead. I can guarantee that a great many of these will be from people with Capricorn factors who are recovering from, or still going through the cycle. Edward Gibbon published The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire on the last Pluto in Capricorn cycle in 1776.
For all that Pluto’s exit from Capricorn is still hard to go through, it is your symbolic reminder that various people, organisations, governments and institutions will also meet with decline and fall as we go towards November 20th, 2024.
Real Life Examples of Pluto in Capricorn
Here are real examples of Pluto in Capricorn impact on you, the readers, which I’ve summarised from your questions.
*Bad employers or incompetent bosses and managers who tried to take total control of your project, or your career. The Little Hitler or Marie Antoinette syndrome: out of touch and out of order.
*Corrupt corporations or business organisations who (say) took COVID-19 compensation money despite making profits.
*Domination tactics by those who assume top dog position and have to be restrained or resisted.
*Politicians you never voted for, with power over your life or death: not just COVID-19, but gun laws in America.
*Bullying husbands or sexual partners who rule in the home, because they rule the mortgage repayments.
The Pluto Positives
The Pluto positives come out of the Pluto negatives. Just one look at the last time we saw this transition cycle, 1762 to 1778, proves that. From slavery came black power. From the Stamp Act (unfair taxes) came the Boston Tea Party and the start of freedom for the new Americans.
From the dreadful reign of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette came the French Revolution and the end of tyranny for French people. From the assault on native people in Australia and New Zealand by Captain Cook and King George III, came two new nations. Rex E. Bills’ classic 1971 astrology book lists Pluto positives as well as negatives.
Pluto takes a long time to take hold, because total global transformation is not an overnight job. The Pluto positives? Perhaps you have already made this happen in your life. Referring to the lists of life departments above, maybe you have already used your willpower to find empowerment.
*New control in areas of your life where you felt you had no control, or you were out of control. A sense of purpose and identity by pushing back against who/what takes over.
*A sense of self-determination and self-respect that comes from using self-discipline to solve problems. Running your own show and ‘being the boss of myself’ to resist takeovers.
*Real potency, clout and influence as a result of finding your own potential and fulfilling it. A new power in the area of life where Pluto has been operating, which comes from understanding that you have what it takes to be an effective human.
The transition of Pluto from Capricorn to Aquarius is drawing closer as I publish this on 8th June 2022. How will it affect you? How is the slow departure of Pluto from Capricorn, already affecting you? One thing’s sure. It’s a better world.
Predictions for the End of Pluto in Capricorn
Astrology does not predict death and never should. Yet, we are going to see some of the Pluto in Capricorn plutocrats leave the planet on this cycle. Remember, Captain Cook was murdered. Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were executed on the guillotine.
Astrology does not predict mental illness either, but to honour the horoscope, we should also recall that George III went mad and was replaced by his son. It’s more accurate to say that power ends. Whatever it takes to do that, occurs.
The British Prime Minister William Pitt refused to give America independence on the last full year of cycle, in 1778, but collapsed during the debate and died. Strange but true.
I’m not going to repeat my predictions about Vladimir Putin as they were published some years ago, now. More importantly, the transition from Pluto out of Capricorn, into Aquarius, is system change.
The last time we saw this cycle Jean-Jacques Rousseau published The Social Contract and we experienced The Enlightenment, also known as The Age of Reason. It’s time for minorities to attain power. It’s time for women to rise.
There’s a saying on Twitter I sometimes see: “Stale, male and pale.” If that was the Pluto in Capricorn system, you can bet your bottom dollar (or Bitcoin) that’s on the way out, starting on March 23rd 2023.
The biggest and worst example of Pluto in Capricorn in my opinion is the Climate Emergency caused by coal, gas, petrol and the kerosene which fuels aeroplanes. That has been forced on us all by various politicians and businessmen. Well, by all the laws of astrology, that is also going, going, gone. Kamala Harris reached #1 on the New York Times bestseller list with The Truths We Hold: An American Journey. Her journey is only just beginning.

Hi Jessica, I have my South Node is 29° Capricorn, North Node 29° Cancer. It is really scary. What does it mean for me? Is this going to be a cardinal impact next year beginning March 23rd? Thank you Jessica, can’t stop reading your blogs, and this one is huge. Can’t believe all this planetary events happen during my life.
Nothing to be scared of, but you will face a huge decision about your home, home town, house, apartment, homeland – and the family will be pulled into that. It may have happened before, actually. Any time you have transits to your Cancer-Capricorn nodes, you have decisions about moving to make. Moving cities, perhaps, or even whole countries. A classic example is the student who leaves home to go to university in the big smoke. Or the ambitious person who leaves one country for another, where big success waits. It can work the other way too. You can put your career second, in favour of a home which is a sanctuary to you, or a refuge. You can put the bright lights or glittering attractions second in favour of being closer to your parents. It’s really on that level. This is a very slow transit and there’s no rush. The Garden Oracle can help with your decisions.
Talk about a chicken skin moment!
2008, nov 30th is the year I got married. And it’s been a up and down, painful, joyful but a rollercoaster. You could say the same for my career, up and down, successes, fails, looping the loop. I am at a big crossroads with both right now. I am wondering if 2024 will bring an answer for me? Everything seems to be floating, suspended in motion above me, while I peddle furiously to make things happen for both my marriage and my career. Any insight would be most welcome.
Marriage isn’t often talked about in the Tenth House but of course it is about status. For all that some people don’t consider marriage to be about social position and rank, it truly is; Capricorn is about the old-fashioned systems and structures of society and weddings are still at the top, in that way of thinking. You have Capricorn factors at 6 through 23 and are strongly influenced by hierarchies in your life, be they social hierarchies (staying married in a divorcing world) or work. You are trying to figure things out. You are also strongly Aquarian. Two different people in one body! The Aquarian side of yourself which is far more interested in friends, groups and making the world a better place, will likely win in the end. It will take time. The Tarot can show you.
I should have posted this comment when I first read the article but haven’t managed until now. I imagine that the queue is now on the thousands of comments. However, I will test my luck and ask the question. For years I have been in awe of your generosity and with every blog post it seems as if you are going deeper into what you want your legacy as an astrologer to be, your advise and predictions are truly remarkable and the openness with which your share your gifts never ceases to amaze me. Thank you!
To say that Pluto has thrown my life upside-down is an understatement. I had “a” life before 2008 and many lives after 2008, therefore, this article has been enlightening. And I wonder particularly about the 29 degree of Mars in my chart and how it will affect me?
I’m at my desk with some home-made lemon juice and the dog is just settling down by my side, so I’m ready for the questions. Thank you for your very kind comments. If you had a life before 2008 and don’t know, you have been really affected by this transit. Sure enough you have Capricorn factors at 6 through 29 so go through the entire cycle which began in 2011 and ends in stages, from March 2023. For all that Pluto makes people feel disempowered and ‘sat on’ by a handful of people (usually men) it’s also true that the transition can empower ordinary people in an extraordinary way. We just saw that in Australia. Women independents and their volunteers took on the powerful Liberal party and its backer, Rupert Murdoch, and won. You are now at a stage of your career, unpaid work or academic career where the same potential is there. The new buzzword is ‘community.’ If you put out feelers for your tribe (or tribes, plural) now it may be slow, difficult and hard work, but from March 2023 you will realise how influential those tribes are, and just how much you can bring to them. You have the node in Aquarius so have one or more past lives spent with a central community, group, network or circle. Some you have reincarnated with will be back in your life in the late 20’s or 30’s and these friends have deep karma with you.
Pluto has had quite an impact on my career. I don’t have any factors in Aquarius but is my chart impacted by the planetary changes coming up? I do have factors in Capricorn.
I’m so grateful for your response to my previous question on Saturn retrograde in Aquarius. It’s helpful to be aware of potential hurdles.
Thank you. You have Salacia at 25 Capricorn in the Tenth House of career, unpaid work and academia. So you co-exist in two worlds at once, neither of them real. Not all the time, perhaps, but habitually. I have seen this in the charts of people who have one proper job and one unpaid role. The proper job is in a slightly unreal field, as is the voluntary position. Pluto has been at 25 Capricorn so that part of your existence has been well and truly changed by now. He won’t be back to 25 Capricorn so your C.V. has been as altered as it’s going to be, if we’re talking about dual roles, dual projects or dual identities.
Thank you for your fantastic insights as usual. I have been busy renovating on the home front and becoming more focused on becoming self sufficient with my Taurus moon and other factors. Recently I bought the neighbours empty block and added that to my backyard and am currently preparing it for a vegetable garden. But I have a question pertaining to my 29th degree 10th house Sun in Capricorn. I have been working steadily to get back into an air traffic control (ATC) function since 2009. I was in a branch of ATC in Aus many years ago but was made redundant. I went to UNI and became a teacher and went overseas in early 2009. I have taught and fought may way back into a contract trainer position with a foreign country’s airforce. Although I am not in an ATC function I am active on the periphery teaching specific airport skills etc. I would like to know if you see any possibility of me resurrecting an air traffic control position either overseas or back in Aus in the next few years? Thank you.
Thank you. You want to resurrect your old air traffic control position overseas or in Australia, and you have the Sun at 29 Capricorn, right at the end of the Tenth House of career. You also have Mercury at 1 Aquarius so you are going to feel the biggest bump when Pluto goes to 29 Capricorn around 13th February and Mercury returns to 1 Aquarius. That’s the first sign of a change in the balance of power in your field. Aquarius is of course about people power within a group. It’s associated with communities of diverse individuals, and you are about to see what Pluto can do in a conjunction with Mercury there. Mercury is about communication – he is the messenger. The other time-frame here is March, the following month, so this looks like a complete change of ambition and direction. The specifics (the actual job) can be shown better by the Tarot, which you can make personal in a reading. Long-term, Pluto in conjunction with Mercury in Aquarius in your Eleventh House transforms your existence with friends, allies and the group itself well into early 2025. Powerful people and a circle of people with tremendous clout and influence are suggested; the air force does suggest itself. I’m sure you saw the Red Arrows at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. That’s a classic Aquarian team.
Hi Jessica “Bullying husbands or sexual partners who rule in the home, because they rule the mortgage repayments.” rings very true for me and also the one about employers, both of these situations have changed as in I left the relationship and changed from working in small and micro business to charity and more structure and accountability. My romantic life feels like it went into hibernation…… I would love to hear any insights in my Capricorn placements
You have had the worst of Pluto in Capricorn and left bullying behind at work and home. You could easily gain a new date, or something more, October-December. This person would expand your horizons; possibly be foreign or have a huge attachment to a foreign country or culture; be good news in general. If you rejected someone earlier in 2022 you may have a second chance then. This time really think about who and what is on offer; it’s pretty good.
What do you think of India – do you see the coming in of a female PM – “PG”
What about stock markets – especially India? Do you see the possibility of an end to the current money system via EMP or cyber threats- wiping out entire details from the systems – how does this affect the holdings of the average citizen?
Finally, what do you think about these 4 places and their economy – India, Dubai, Singapore and New Zealand.
I had a look at the chart for India some time ago, if you want to look up India on Search. She’s really part of the crumbling old Capricorn system too. So it really can’t last. Capricorn is the mountain goat who climbs to the top of the peak. That symbol is about any structure where all the power and privilege is concentrated in the hands of the few, at the expense of the many. So if you run India on fossil fuel to benefit a few at the top (Adani springs to mind) then sooner or later you’re going to come a cropper as Pluto goes into Aquarius, the sign of ‘we the people.’ In the original India prediction I spoke about the new industry being in alternative transport. Elon Musk is obviously tying cryptocurrency to electric cars; variations on that theme will also scoop up India, Dubai, Singapore and New Zealand. We have Uranus in Taurus at the same time as Pluto in Aquarius which is phenomenally different to anything that anybody has ever known. Expect R for Revolution.
I am interested in the region of Australasia and how the region will be shaped, different in the 2030’s. Does Chinas pressure and assertiveness towards Australia, the pacific, Taiwan change if there is a shift in China’s leadership at the to, and how does this happen with communist countries like China, Nth Korea? Are we looking at a future when threats from China (war) are no longer?
China is actually on a downward spiral. I’ve had a look at the various charts for China on a couple of features on this website and she is far too tied to the old 20th century economy to really make it, in the 21st century. Sabre-rattling is not much use if your economy is built on old models which are already looking very shaky (property and spreadsheets in the sky, for one). There is also a common fantasy at the moment that COVID-19 has become like a cold. It is yet to produce its most serious variant and China has that to think about too.
Hi Jessica. I have a stellium in Capricorn. I have my MC there. What are the effects of Pluto on me? What will it do to my career and marriage? Both seem insoluble to me.
You have Capricorn factors at 2 to 8 degrees and so the main stories were over by 2013. Pluto remains at a distance, affecting you much as it does everybody. Tremendous power and control is held by just a few corporations and people; there is very tight control at the top and occasionally, democracy itself has been messed with. I expect the second half of the 2020’s will seem like a completely different world to you.
Nothing in Capricorn…hmmm
An empty sign and house just shows that you are not defined by the those matters. So your career, rank and social status does not say who you are. Other things do! The general transits and trends (Pluto in Capricorn and politics where you live) is more likely to affect you as a general climate.
Hi Jessica – this explains so much. In June 2008 I finally moved out from my bullying husband (who did control the money and mortgage payments). Because of our children he has still had some involvement in my life but every year, as my children have got older and more independent, that has become less and less. However, issues of home, relationships and work have all been so pressured since 2008 – like trying to swim in quick sand. Now, with one final “not great/controlling” relationship coming to an end and house/home and money issues really stressful this month and next – I am looking and hoping that I will be able to live on my own and have my own home, feeling secure financially, having financial independence, not having to work so hard just to get by. I’m hoping March 23rd next year will be the start of that…! Is this something along the lines of what I can expect (honestly, the last 14 years have been one struggle after another). Thank you and have a lovely day. D
Thank you. Your chart was actually triggered right at the start of the Pluto cycle and you are hoping to have your own home and money, with less hard work. Sure enough you have Capricorn factors at 1 through 27, so when Pluto started out at 1 Capricorn, your bullying husband became your ex-husband – and now you are at the end of the cycle, as we find Pluto at 27 Capricorn towards the end of June, ongoing. The other issue is your Cancer stellium. Cancer rules home, family, home town, homeland and property. Pluto in Capricorn has been opposing that, for much of the time you have been battling away. You have Cancer factors at 4 through 15, so went through Pluto clashing with that up until 2016. I would not be surprised if one of your children was a daughter and/or female relatives on either side were part of the saga. Moving right along, this can and does get remarkably easier as Pluto moves off 27 Capricorn and by 2024 you will be in a completely different position regarding the children, him and a future home. You will actually save or make a lot of money, October-December 2022 which helps. Your entire career, unpaid work and/or academic career will radically change by 2026 and you’ll be quite free. Liberated, actually.
thank you for your blog articles, they have given me a lot to think about, and also a lot of hope with the world happenings this spring. Personally I have quite a lot going on in Capricorn, all factors are between 0 and 29 degrees, and it makes me wonder about my career and work. It has been really hard to find my place in working life, and now that I am 55, I have almost given up hope having a somewhat regular job and something I could call a career. I do have some work at the moment that is a pretty good fit for me. It is only part time though, and I am finding all kind of side projects to add to my earnings, but I hardly get by. I do feel that I am both underappreciated and underachieving in many ways. How do you see my career situation might be effected when Pluto sails away from Capricorn?
The situation in Capricorn for me:

Diana in Capricorn in your Tenth House is a symbol of freedom, space, autonomy, independence and spontaneity. You were never going to do the Dolly Parton 9 to 5. You also have Salacia there, a symbol of escaping from reality (not facing reality). You are over the worst of this cycle, and can put some difficult crossroads behind you. Pluto has been moving right away from Diana, the last symbol in your chart to be under this transit. If you want to change your professional life, then you need to look at Diana. Salacia, too. And Bacchus! These are all about being your own woman; not having commitments; enjoying yourself rather than being at the top of the ladder. So it’s really a case of perspective. It is possible that the more you see Pluto in Capricorn around you, with all its intensity, emphasis on status, success, money, and the suits – the more your Diana has been kicking back. Once Pluto leaves you may no longer feel that need to reject the game so much, and might actually just fall into your own version of success. It happens. See what the Tarot tells you.
Hi Jessica, thank you again for this great post. Needless to say that I can’t wait to see the end of Pluto in Capricorn. Could you please tell me how it will affect me? Everything you have written is spot on. The last 2-3 years have been difficult with the feeling of being in limbo. I have been teleworking from my home country but my company keeps pressurising to come back to London (triggering poor mental health and months on sick leave) or terminate my contract. On top of it, there are no COVID measures in place in an open space environment and my manager who is a gaslighter. Accommodation wise, due to the instability with work, it has been difficult to know if I have to relocate or not hence a temporary home. On a positive note, Pluto being currently retrograde has provided me some relief and I have felt happier. Sorry for the long comment! Many thanks. Take care and Nasmaste!
Thank you. I’m glad the astrology is spot-on for you, though obviously sorry you have been going through this difficult situation with your company. It sounds to me as if you have Virgo factors in your chart. In fact, you have a stellium (unusually high Virgo count) and the nodal axis there, so all matters Virgo and Sixth House (work and health) are central to you. You have also done this before in a previous life. For example, you may have been a servant in a time of plague, but expected to serve your master. More positively, to be strongly Virgo on this cycle, means that you take back control of your wellbeing, lifestyle and work schedule. The gaslighter manager is no match for your iron will. The reality of a Virgo signature in your chart, not just now, but into 2023, 2024, is that you have to reorganise your career. And not just that, but your entire daily routine. I am sure you have already started to do that. On the plus side, you may in fact find that you ‘get a life’ as they say. We are fast approaching a time when working people have to choose.
When Pluto leaves Capricorn on March 23rd 2023, according this article, it marks the beginning of the end of one of the toughest career cycles of our lives. I really hope this also applies to the pandemic, and energy crisis?
The pandemic has been a good example of Pluto in Capricorn power and control from the top of government and business, hasn’t it? I just watched a YouTube clip from a researcher at the University of Birmingham, only a few months old, which has under 1000 views. This researcher has tested, in their laboratory, a new air filter system which gets rid of COVID-19 completely on British public transport: those deadly trains and buses. Why isn’t this front page? You tell me. People power is already behind affordable, DIY filters which are being used in classrooms (but there’s no big money in that). By all the laws of astrology we would expect new inventions to empower people. Climate Emergency is another example of big business and big politics. We have the solutions, but political donors and the politicians themselves are thwarting them. Again, as Pluto goes into Aquarius, we can expect that to end.
Hello, Jessica, and thank you so much for all you do. I’m hoping you can get to this, although I suspect I’m down about 1,500 spots in the queue at this point. 🙂
Anyway, in the U.S., does the end of Pluto in Capricorn possibly also signify the end of the Republican Party and its power–especially since the party essentially sold its collective soul–or what passes for it–to Trump, and to the regressive positions and hardball tactics that Trump represents? (I hope so.)
Also, I have factors in Capricorn–Salacia at 19, Cupido at 27, and South Node at 20–as well as stelliums in Cancer and Virgo, and have been working on trying to improve my health while sussing out a transition to new work/career. I started my current job in mid-2007, just before the current cycle began in 2008, and have gone through many struggles with power, control and bullying at work and in my personal life; I’ve worked through them and am ready to move on. Any thoughts on timing or direction? Thanks again.
I’m just finishing my coffee and the last of the questions for the moment, as this feature has been popular. I think we’re all longing for Pluto in Capricorn to go, aren’t we. I think the answer to your question about the Republican Party is December 2022, January 2023, February 2023. That is the Capricorn weather we experience before Pluto leaves. It is also the moment that a great deal of text messages, emails, computer content, recorded calls, CCTV footage and so on from the Trump mob attack on democracy will come back. Why? Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn. The most critical period for Trump in terms of Russia, and his allies (allied with Putin) then begins in March 2023. It goes on for years but it will empower the Democrats and end the Republicans as we know them today. That’s the astrology. As a Sun Cancer with a useful Capricorn and Virgo pattern in your chart, you are ambitious but you also do the work. You’re not such a careerist that you won’t serve others. You will be offered a hit project, fantastic new role, superior job, academic temptation or similar, by October. If you don’t take it, it may be repeated January-May 2023 or an equally good option may emerge for you. You will have to get away with the so-called impossible or unthinkable, but you may well decide to do it. This should make up for some of the awful behaviour from Pluto types you have experienced in previous years.
If you have some time can you take a look at my Capricorn placements
Thanks a lot .
You are a Sun Scorpio with a huge Virgo stellium and a below average number of Capricorn placements. The Virgo stellium will result in a fantastic new job or project, course or qualification, from May 2023 to May 2024 as Jupiter in Taurus will steadily trine your Virgo factors, one after another. This special professional challenge will also be very good for your health, wellbeing, mental health and physical constitution. You could easily pick it up as 2023 begins and then get in your stride later that year.
OMG Jessica can’t resist but asking you about my Birth Chart: am I affected?
Txs a LOT for ALL your precious work,
Namaste. You are a Sun Gemini with a whopping stellium in Virgo in the Sixth House. Your work ethic, attention to detail, finesse with the small aspects of the job, conscientious attention to duty, sense of service and general Jeeves-like qualities were developed at school. When you got it wrong, you felt wrong. When you got it right, you felt completely at home. Yet, we cannot separate your physical health and mental health from your workload, no matter if it is paid work, unpaid work or academia. The body is the mind is the body with you. All of this will matter a great deal more, not because of Pluto, but because of Jupiter, which will trine your Virgo factors from May 2023 until May 2024 when, if you wish, you can have the rebirth to end all rebirths.
My husband is a Capricorn born on 13 Jan. His business has been pretty bad past 8-10 years. Any good news in the future?
Just based on the fact that your husband is a Sun Capricorn, his Sun is in the Tenth House of professional life, ambition and achievement. His Sun is probably at 22 Capricorn so Pluto would in fact have formed a conjunction to that. This is the pressure to be born again with a different identity, look, photograph, role, title. He may have done that, or not. The financial burden is over in March 2023. From that point onwards he can start again financially but he is going to need willpower, self-discipline and self-control to do that.
Hi Jessica, a great feature, and as always, thorough in scope and breadth. The legacy you leave behind as a professional astrologer and medium will be substantial and unsurpassed. And it never ceases to amaze me at the amount of work you accomplish in a day – writing daily horoscopes, weekly horoscopes, answering volumes of questions, writing fantastic features/blogs and let’s not forget you are writing a book as well at the moment and have a family to take care of as well.
I hope my comment makes it to the queue or does it get added to the ballooning figure of 14K+. Did some math, there are close to 300 questions from the past two days that will never see the light of day. It’s going to be far more difficult to get in on the queue from now on; the best bet is for people to sign-in to Twitter to check-in with you.
For the blog on “Gemini weather for 2022, ” a small typo : change “Mars Retrograde in Gemini from September 4, 2022 until March 17, 2023” to “Mars Retrograde in Gemini from October 30, 2022 until January 11, 2023.” No worries, nobody notices these things.
A quick question and feel free to say “look it up on Search,” but hey-ho, let’s give it a try. What’s in store for Israel? The never-ending strife in the Middle-East seems to have started from the time the two boys came along, Isaac and Ishmael, the kids of Abraham.
Thanks again, Jessica, take care, see you on Twitter.
Thanks so much Caroline. I set up The Sun Sign School to train professional astrologers so that eventually I could create a panel of consultants to help answer more questions and comments. It takes time to train, though. Thank you for picking up the typo in The Gemini Weather feature, I will pass that on. Your question about Israel is really about religion and that’s Sagittarius. The issue with Israel is really sociology; there are many more people alive today with factors in Sagittarius, than has been the case for about 250 years. That’s because so many children were born with Uranus, Neptune or Pluto in Sagittarius. Religion was always going to be the source of revolution (Uranus), confusion (Neptune) and power struggles (Pluto) and this won’t end until those generations leave the planet. The karma which accrues every time the lunar nodes go through Sagittarius is forever, though, and that’s down to the individuals to clear. Yes, see you on Twitter.
I am electrified by this post but also puzzled. I have half of my sky in Capricorn. I started my BA studies in 2008 and now I am finishing my PhD. I cant believe how exact the overlap is between the Pluto transit and this life journey in and out of academia I had since 2008. I am often worried I will never finish my PhD, but I am hoping I have some divine help here to conclude this Pluto cycle with my last degree.
I am a sun Scorpio (another big stellium in Scorpio) and also have a stellium in Aquarius. What will this next big phase of Pluto in Aquarius hold for me?
Thank you so much for any insight.
Thank you. As a Sun Scorpio with Capricorn placements at 0 through 24, you did in fact begin your BA as Pluto landed at 0 Capricorn in 2008. You are ruled by Pluto anyway so understand that iron willpower, tight self-control and self-mastery is the only thing that works, in terms of your goals, role and ambitions. You have become so used to living like this, always watching the next step up, always keeping an eye on the academic hierarchy, that you will not know yourself for that brief period in 2023 when Pluto first dips out of your Tenth House. In fact, when Pluto goes to 2 Aquarius he will immediately make an exact semi-sextile to Uranus at 2 Capricorn and also aspect Proserpina at 2 Gemini. This suggests the mid-2020’s is revolutionary (Uranus) and liberating (Uranus) with a new role as go-between (Proserpina) involving the web, the media or academia – the written and spoken word. The beginning of the end of what was, and the exhilarating, sudden bolt from the blue that begins what will be. It will utterly change your life in May, June 2024. Enjoy the change.
Hi Jessica – Thank you for sharing what you know and helping with personal inquiries. I have a Capricorn stellium and one factor at 27 degrees – Vulcan at 27 Capricorn. Vulcan is a symbol of restrained anger or desire. I don’t know what this means in conjunction with the rest of my chart. But I am at my breaking point with work and my daily routine – how I spend my waking hours has come a drain on my soul. I want to make a change before I am forced to, but I feel so stuck and can’t begin to think of an out. Any insight you have would be very much appreciated. Thank You – Nena
Nena, this sounds to me like Virgo as well as Capricorn, because Virgo rules your Sixth House of health, wellbeing, mental health, daily routine, housework, paid work and your lifestyle. You do have Virgo factors in your Sixth House. You also have the nodes in Cancer-Capricorn which is home life, home town, homeland up against success, ambition, achievement. The latter never goes away. It’s karmic in nature. Yet there are times when it matters less, and it will matter less to you in slow stages from March 2023. You will not feel the contrast or difference so strongly. You will be given a fantastic opportunity to fix the issues you have, October-December 2022. Ask the Tarot for more about that.
Hi Jessica: I have Capricorn in MC 5 degrees but I don’t understand what that means. I also have Fortuna in 3 degrees Capricorn, and Salacia at 17 degrees Capricorn. Can you help me with this, please? Where do I look on the website to understand more about MC.
Your MC or Midheaven is your highest peak achievement. Sometimes it’s work. More usually it’s not work at all, but in your obituary, it is what people will talk about; it is how you will chiefly be remembered. Sometimes people don’t try to attain their Midheaven and unfortunately that means no real peak or purpose. Capricorn is about the system. The hierarchy or structure we associate with the aristocracy, the establishment, academia, society itself. It really depends on where you live. So your MC shows your endless promotion through the ranks or social mountaineering. Your birth time has to be strictly accurate for the MC to also be accurate. Your other Capricorn factors were passed by Pluto some years ago so you have already been through the job loss/job hire phase. You can find out more about the MC or Midheaven simply by typing that into Search.
In recent years, I have worked extremely hard, changed profession and focus several times and have ended up with spending most of my life at work with an enormous number of overtime and completely burned out. I hope that this cycle will end in 2023.
You have Capricorn factors at 10 through 27 and so Pluto has been with you for much of this cycle and yet from November 2023, when he finally moves off 27 degrees, that part of your life is rapidly looking like history. Juno at 26 Virgo and Mars at 27 Capricorn are almost trine. Virgo rules work ethic. Health and wellbeing, mental health and the mind, body and spirit. Capricorn rules ambition. You have been made to play a very long waiting game to succeed when your instinct is to do everything twice as quickly as everybody else. You are competitive, formidable and a warrior in your chosen field. I strongly, strongly recommend that you pull back the heat and speed, as Pluto in conjunction with Mars at 27 Capricorn, on and off until November 1st, can be very difficult. Try to avoid getting into a battle (Mars) over control (Pluto) with people or organisations. The reason I say that is that the trine leads back to Juno, which is your commitment to work, but also your commitment to your own health and wellbeing. There is a different way to play this transit and it would involve an historic lifestyle and workload change for you. If you are open to it, ask The Garden Oracle and The Tarot for possible alternative pathways. In any case, this part of your life is absolutely done with, at Christmas 2023 and the second half of the 2020’s bears no resemblance at all to the past, professionally.
Wow. My heart went through the events occurred since 2008 while reading your post and it felt heaviness.
There were divorce, death, legal battles, alcoholism, financial loss, extreme work life, loss of business income (I have a travel business)… I sure had some positive events but it seem that I have been carrying the heaviness that those extreme events left me to overcome and grow.
If you say that will be over, that would be one of the most welcome news!! I’m almost crying with mixed feeling of grief, relief and hope..
I don’t see a chart here but I would assume you have factors in Capricorn, Cancer, Aries and/or Libra (the cardinal signs) which rule career, home, family, self and marriage. Of course anyone in the travel business has been hit hard by COVID-19 as unfortunately there is still no solution for the air filtering in airports, in hotels and on planes. That will come eventually but at the moment too many people have invested too much money in Pfizer and AstraZeneca. As I say, I can’t see a chart, but I suggest you use the Tarot, which is free on this website, to see how the end of Pluto in Capricorn will reward you at last.
Dear Jessica, I have Capricorn. My life went to deep transformation and huge disruptions since 2008. I just want a rest and I believe it is coming, and I think now I understand why I lived all those tough experiences. Could you give me some light about my own path? Thank you, as always. Much love for you.
Thank you. You actually have the four cardinal signs represented in your birth chart; Cancer, Capricorn, Aries and Libra. This means that you have had a very hard time indeed since 2008, as Pluto in Capricorn triggered squares and oppositions, but you also had Uranus in Aries, doing the same thing. You are strongly Aries so are a fighter by nature but that kind of pattern can be very challenging. Okay, so you will relaunch yourself with a new look and new name or title by May 2023. It will work very well for you and your image or reputation will benefit. You will make or save quite a lot of money from May 2023 until May 2024 which will enable you to have much more freedom, space and choice. The Tarot can tell you more about that, as you draw closer to the time. The biggest change in your life will be the new friends you make, who are involved with an important circle of people you draw much closer to, with total transformation from 2025 as you realise ‘All for one, and one for all’ works.
Morning Jessica, Hope there is sunshine in your world today! Always love Pluto articles. In my life, there is definitely a life before 2008 (free, without burden, positive, economically stable), and after 2008 (pushing a loaded barrow uphill) where suddenly, a meteor storm of job losses and difficult jobs, hard domestic life, family illnesses and work caring, finance issues, were never ending. It was hard, (I do remember an instance when I was freely laughing about a year back, and then finding it strange bc I had not done that for so long). On the positive, I changed, and found acceptance and tolerance. Right now, glimpses of that free spirited person I once was peak out, and it is glorious. We can never be the same person, but I look to Plutos move into Aquarius with interest, and feel positive about the energy of the next generation. I experience my teenage sons looking to a world with no interest in corporate power, but every interest in our health system and our environment. Their values are so different, one son (who almost lost his life once to flu, and now a paramedic student at 19YO) commenting yesterday as we sat back watching Opal Hunters, – all I see is someone damaging the earth for stones that contribute nothing. Cheers to a better world!
Good morning. It’s snowing on the mountain in Hobart so the kettle is on. Your teenage sons are probably Generation Aquarius; born with Uranus or Neptune in that sign. They have incarnated to use people power, for the global community, and change the way power operated while they were growing up. Pluto in Aquarius should really feel like a bump in your life, but there would also be practical reasons (political reasons, very likely, or new world events) which suggest that women who hold up half the sky are about to be handed more control. I suspect it will be related to the two big global issues of the times: COVID-19 and the Climate Emergency. You will feel the thud of Pluto leaving your Tenth House and entering your Eleventh House more than most people, as you have both Capricorn and Aquarius factors. At a guess, this will be about your role, goal, mission, position and ambition (the rather relentless nature of certain people or situations goes) and immediately, a group of allies you are already involved with, or soon will be, shows you just how much you can achieve.
Thank you for you. For all you offer here. A place of hope and solace for me during these times.
I am a long time physician/healer who works with many holistic modalities. I see the times changing. People used to want to create a long, deep relationship. A deep dive into chronic health and ancestral issues. Now, as the younger generations come into their adulthood and/or parenthood there is a consciousness that asks for speed, quickness, often hurry. Sometimes this works. Sometimes curing/healing an inherited physical or mental health proclivity and restoring health takes time.
I very much want to continue to be relevant in my work. I no longer need the money, I do it for love and connection. There is deep meaning in touching the future in the way I do. As Pluto leaves Capricorn can you give suggestions of how to relate with the more urgent frequency of the generations that are coming on as adults while holding the integrity of it taking time to create deep changes in health?
Thank you very much. You want to use your talent, time and energy to create deep change in health. This is very important as we are heading towards Saturn in Pisces, which will oppose the Virgo (health) placements of billions. I need to post a longer feature on this because we will see a new variant of COVID-19 which is the most infectious yet and/or the most resistant to Pfizer, AstraZeneca and the rest. The last time we saw Saturn in Pisces, opposing the Virgo placements of the billions, AIDS became the number one killer in America. So I am concerned as an astrologer. You are concerned because you are seeing the rush towards ‘normal’ by people in their twenties and it is pure fantasy; COVID-19 has gone nowhere. We can’t really talk about healing, or ancestral issues (generations have dealt with plagues, or cholera) without noting the virus. Something as an astrologer I know, is that health is work is health. The bigger picture of the crisis we are going to see after March 2023 is that there is a huge collective, unconscious need to work four days, three days a week. Not working for the man. Not always online. COVID-19 has already delivered working from home and job share. I think this is part of the reason we have collectively and unconsciously taken on this pandemic. What do you think?
The only thing I have in my natal chart that’s Capricorn is my MC which is at 11 degrees of Cap. So how are these changes going to play out me?
Love your work!
You already had Pluto in conjunction with your MC (Midheaven) in February 2013 and if your birth time was accurate, you lost your job, were promoted, saw colleagues or employers leave/arrive and began a process of people politics that was ongoing in 2014 and may have led to more coming and going, Sam. History!
thanks very much for this interesting article, it is hopeful.
Please could you see how this relates to me personally, having in Capricorn 0 Jupiter, 11 Moon and 26 North Node. I totally relate to the summary you have shared from readers, as since 2008 I have been through the hell and back, in both career and marriage. Of course, I did accomplish as well, but it was such a hard climb full of obstacles and betrayal, with the balance never right. Now, I have committed to be independent, on both work and private fronts, and getting stronger and more positive each day. It feels right to fight for autonomy and find oneself again, as it was many, many years back.
You are a Sun Leo with the nodal axis across Capricorn-Cancer at 26 degrees, so your marriage (Cancer, home, household, property) and career (Capricorn) were always going to be karmically loaded in nature. The nodes go backwards through the signs and are associated with past lives. So you incarnated knowing your family and likely your husband from other incarnations and chose to come back to figure out some kind of spiritual settlement. Because of this Cancer-Capricorn tilt in your chart, since 2008 you have become almost used to never really feeling that your home, home town or homeland is a stable and settled sanctuary. Every 28 days the Moon goes through Cancer and your Fourth House, triggers that axis, and you feel the usual sense of being dominated by someone or something. That ends slowly but surely from March 2023 and from 2025 you won’t know yourself in terms of the new existence. It’s been similar with career, in that you have been dealing with Pluto in residence in your Tenth House of achievement and ambition. You have already found out the trick; it’s willpower. From 2025 you will retain the willpower and empowerment and lose the obstacles. It will be a different life.
I have 5 in Capricorn; Mercury, Diana, ASC, Salacina and Proserpina career wise I qualified (law) in 2007 but since then have changed jobs a fair bit without really progressing much, I didn’t have a great time in 2020 and although I’ve changed jobs since then and am happy where I am, there are some things from the old job hanging (unfairly) over me, I’m hoping things will work out on my favour and will be much better going forward thank you xx
Your Capricorn stellium at 2 through 28 degrees suggests a long and winding road with the legal profession and it gets better in stages. The last pass of Pluto at 28 Capricorn is December 2023, which suggests the usual year-end departures, promotions, retirements and so on, either in your work place then, or in your immediate field. This then tips you into a completely different way of thinking about your profession, rank and status as from the final week of January 2024, Pluto goes into Aquarius, tilts back to 29 Capricorn for a while, but is nowhere near your last Capricorn placement. You could draw a neat line under the Early Twenties and Late Twenties, actually, as from New Year’s Eve 2025 a lot of the issues you have been having with hierarchy, power, control have vanished. You are a Sun Sagittarius too so have transiting Uranus (the revolution; freedom; independence) in your Sixth House of work at the same time, so neither you nor I would be surprised to see a sudden upheaval which puts you in a completely different space from 2025.
Pluto in Capricorn opposed my Moon at 5′ Cancer in December 2011, which was the beginning of a very lengthy, difficult separation and divorce, which meant re-establishing career after having been an at-home mother. So the natural First House Aries chart appears most accurate for these events rather than my Sun sign. It’s all behind me now thankfully
You only get one Pluto opposition to your natal Moon in your lifetime, thank goodness, and this is now history for you. Jupiter will make up for it when he goes to 5 Taurus and makes a perfect sextile to your Moon. Not long to wait!
Hi there ! I have 29 sun cancer and 27 moon Capricorn and 29 Scorpio and 29 Taurus nodes do you think this is life changing time- March 2023 -in a positive way ? I just wondered because you said it would be a time similar to 2020, with a new rise in a possible covid variant. I already had long covid march 6, through July of 2020. Wishing everyone good health!
Thank you. You have factors at 8 through 10 Virgo in your Sixth House of health and had Long Covid since 2020. Your issue was Uranus at 6 Taurus in April 2020, moving across to 10 Taurus by July 2020. So transiting Uranus was trine your Virgo placements. That means quite radical, sudden, revolutionary change. And the only thing to do, is meet change with change. In the Sixth House, that is always with work, unpaid work, study or housework. Not just the body, but the labour. Saturn going to 8-10 Pisces is your next challenge. That is February 2024 until March 2024. Put your mental and physical health first then. Not your work. Not your housework. Not charity work or any other kind of work, including study. Stay constantly updated on COVID-19 from scientists, doctors and epidemiologists, as you already have Long Covid. Your Virgo side can and will help you, but you have to remember Virgo is wholistic health and tied to your work satisfaction (or not). That is really what this is all about.
Thank you for this very interesting article. It’s so great to have this information – very helpful to have a weather forecast for the next few years!
Through reading on your website I’m trying to gain a bit of knowledge on my birth chart and how this interacts with transiting planets. My natal Jupiter, Uranus and Juno are all at either 0 or 1 degree of their respective signs. So would I be correct in thinking that they regularly work together in a positive way (since they are sextile/semi-sextile each other) when there are transit placements at 0 and 1? However, when Pluto moves to Aquarius it will be squaring my natal Jupiter – do you see there being a negative edge to this part of the transit for me?
Since my birth chart planets are all in different signs, am I right in thinking that this means that the impacts of each of them are different? Sounds like this Pluto move to Aquarius will be a busy time for me!
This is before I even touch off Vulcano, which I have at 2 degrees Aquarius!
Any insight you have would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much. You are quite right about Jupiter, Uranus and Juno working together. Start with that and the rest of the chart will make sense. Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn are the three linked signs, so your Eighth House of joint finance and property; Ninth House of foreigners and foreign countries; Tenth House of ambition, position and mission- are also linked. Any transits by slow-moving outer planets or the nodes to 0, 1 degrees will always set the story off again, and you can rewrite it every time although the plot never changes. Jupiter going to 1, 0 Aries in October is a good example of that. That can only happen every 12 years so it’s important. Pluto going to 0 Aquarius from March-June 2023 can only happen every 248 years so this is an historic crossroads. July 2023 is memorable as the lunar nodes go to 0, 1 Taurus and Scorpio. With all these transits, the key here is finance or property. Scorpio and Eighth House. Get everything in writing, read the fine print, get professional advice and create space for flexibility. Try not to lock yourself in when transiting Pluto is square your Scorpio pattern. Similarly, when the transiting North Node is opposite, and the transiting South Node in conjunction. Create wiggle room.
Thank you for this beautiful post, and I would say your website is quite addictive. My Sun is in Pisces (21 degrees), Moon is in Libra (21 degrees), Ascending is in Capricorn (25 degrees), North Node is in Cancer (28 degrees), and the South Node is in Capricorn. No other planet placements in Capricorn. Right after, when Pluto entered in Capricorn, around mid-2009, my professional life came to an end. Since then, I have been working part-time, but not in my profession.
Relationship side took a similar turn as well. We became more of a business partner, rather than personal one. And, especially since Covid-19 started, we almost became roommates. (Interestingly enough, her birthday is identical with mine, the year, the month and the day).
Thanks to your blogs that I found that my entire circle of friends do change, every single time when South Node is in Scorpio (which is my 11th house). Back in 1985 I graduated, so lost all of my classmates. Then, in 2003 I moved to another city, this time I lost all of my contacts.
Having said all of those, I am a bit worried about Pluto moving in to Aquarius, since it will be in my 2nd house. I truly appreciate your comments, would like to thank you in advance.
Thank you. I will pass that on to Alyas, James, Jodi and Justin. Your nodal axis is in Cancer-Capricorn at 28 degrees so Pluto is transforming home and work now, and will continue to do so until Christmas 2023. Roommates are ruled by Cancer. Part-time work is ruled by Capricorn. Your South Node in Scorpio is in your Eleventh House in the Natural House system, not your Eleventh House. Pluto moving into Aquarius will be in your Eleventh House, in the chart system I use. So yes, that will transform your social life, and invest the groups you belong to (or join) with great power.
These blogs are so helpful to people – thank you!
You wrote earlier in response to a question “ YouTube clip from a researcher at the University of Birmingham, only a few months old, which has under 1000 views. This researcher has tested, in their laboratory, a new air filter system which gets rid of COVID-19 completely on British public transport: those deadly trains and buses. Why isn’t this front page? You tell me”. Could you please provide a link to this? I’d be very interested to watch.
I have been campaigning for months to management at work, and anyone who would listen on a ‘layered’ approach to managing COVID in the office. No one listens! Worse still, many people are irritated by it. I picked up the term ‘healthy buildings’ from somewhere, maybe you, whereby I’m asking for hepa filters and providing links to research plus recent work on far-UVC light. It just goes into some void of disinterest – frustrating and dispiriting. Just caught myself ranting :). Thanks again for your valuable work.
Thank you. You know, the thoughtful questions which are asked, and the examples supplied, are usually the most interesting part of the whole feature. So I always go back when I can. The University of Birmingham research was buried by the British media, not to mention the world media, for reasons which I suspect are also buried in the sharemarket. I’ve been asked a few times to look at the new COVID-19 variants of 2023 and their higher rates of infection, but also the fall-down of vaccines against them. That astrology feature will appear a little later. Layered management of COVID-19 is the answer, in 2022, correct. Your problem is three generations who are liberated by travel (Uranus in Sagittarius) fascinated by travel (Neptune in Sagittarius) and obsessed with travel (Pluto in Sagittarius). They don’t like masks or needles. They really don’t like quarantine. You can but look after yourself. Eventually air and light treatment for COVID-19 will eliminate it indoors. At the moment the investment has been in needles. That’s where the sharemarket moves. We are in a cycle with this pandemic where nothing will change until March 2023 and then it all changes at once. Watch that Full Moon in Virgo (health, pandemics, epidemics) on March 7th 2023. Until then, with Pluto in Virgo, you will have to control your workload, control your hours, tightly manage your daily routine, run your lifestyle with both hands on the reins and the rest. That will work for you. What a lot of people do not realise about the pandemic is that the whole point of it was that we job-share, give up work, take a new job or wrest back control of hours/locations (work from home). In astrology terms this is the purpose of what’s now here. Try not to have an issue with Covid any more than you have an issue with paid work, unpaid work or study and actually begin with the latter. That’s the solution.
tks for your reply Jessica….
which country would you move to if you could af if not would yu be happy to stay put in India?
Issues on religon, minorities, corruption never seem to go away.
India has a caste system so was always going to be in trouble with Pluto in Capricorn. The United Kingdom has a caste system too. It’s called the class system. Again, she was always going to have issues with Pluto in Capricorn. Expect system change in both nations starting in March 2023. From November 2024 the old establishment and hierarchy will be replaced by a radically different way of thinking about class and religion. In the United Kingdom it will likely chime with a Labour government or a minority government where the Conservatives lose power. The more highly stratified a system is (Narendra Modi being a dismal example of that) the more Pluto in Aquarius will dramatically replace what and who was there. Wait.
I have a 0 Capricorn and sun sign 3 Capricorn. Not surprisingly, I had a home loan approved in 2008 but then was retrenched in 2009. It wasn’t until late 2013 I bought the long awaited for home.
I also have a 20 degree Capricorn and a 27 degree Cappy with a few others at 27 degrees too.
I resigned from my day job in Jan 2022 – and have been studying and running my side hustle. Interest rate rises in Australia have me worried and wondering if I should start hunting for another job that pays a regular wage. Would love to know how you see the end of Pluto in Capricorn impacting me.
Ceres at 27 Capricorn is your whole career story between now and November 2023 (the last pass). You will compromise, job-share (perhaps) or time-share during this period, as people or organisations, even situations, which try to dominate you – manage to get you to change. Ceres in your chart symbolises how you use your entitlement to creative control and tremendous power. The caveat being, you will always have to give way, give in, share. Have a look at Ceres on Search. Expect to cut deals with others more than once and try to leave the emotion behind. You must both/all come up with something that actually functions. No feelings!
I have absolutely nothing in capricorn just sun in the tenth house but the year 2008 was the most transformative year in my life and because of that year, which started everything and was the catalyst for everything. Iwent through many things which were painful, difficult, heart-wrenching but also motivating, inspiring and last year I emerged as a totally healed, self-aware, happy human being, so inspite of the fact that I have now pluto square sun transit because of the transformation that happened in my life I am a well-equipped person to deal with it;-) I think with pluto you can’t fight, you have to accept to go through it and learn your lesson, but the reward is bigger than with any other planet. No delusions just facts. Thank you Jessica for your blog. You are an inspiration.
Thank you. “Just the Sun in the Tenth House” is enough to have changed your life since 2008, as the Sun’s house shows where you shine, stand out, are photographed or filmed, highlight and illuminate what matters to yourself and others. For you, it has always been ambition, position and mission. The reward of Pluto is lasting power, influence and clout. It can be dented but it never goes away.
I have Minerva and Aesculapia late degrees of Capricorn could you please give me an idea of what this might mean for me?
Kind regards Selina
Minerva at 26 Capricorn is the last of your factors to receive a conjunction from Pluto. She is your inner wisdom. You could easily become a respected professional or academic with Minerva in Capricorn in the Tenth House. This is the ‘lady writer on the TV’ to quote an ancient Dire Straits song. It is also the wise old owl, to whom interns turn to, when faced with problems. Pluto on Minerva has already happened. You have been taken over, or there has been an attempted takeover, of your space. Your role and projects or plans. It can be the universe (unemployment) or people (the boss). It’s back in August-December then over. I suspect there will be a reshuffle at Christmas, when people tend to leave or start, and you will either leave or depart yourself, or be affected by that, but the issue of being dominated ends at that point.
Sitting here with a fractured knee just as I am about to move into a new apartment, I could be miserable. Strangely though, although I am a fiercely independent spirit and free movement – physically and psychologically – is essential to my happiness, I am surprised (my family also!) as to how calmly I am taking my discomfort. I have such hope for the future. My experience mirrors your predictions and so, with Ceres at 25 Capricorn and Salacia 08 Capricorn, both in the 10th house and Jupiter and Uranus both at 24 Cancer in the Fourth House, I have a fated feeling about the demise of Pluto in Capricorn. I am so excited about the Pluto in Aquarius period. Humanity needs change so badly. We need a Renaissance.
I want to play my part in this Re-volution. What more can you see?
Capricorn rules knees, strangely enough. The body often talks, even through accidents, and knees are about kneeling down before superiors, the system, elders or straining too hard when trying to go up, move forward or go to the next level. You have a Capricorn-Cancer opposition which is slowly playing itself out of your life in terms of the memories you hold. Capricorn-Cancer is often the ambitious woman who wants to move into a social sphere her parents or family never attained. They call it ‘moving on’ in the working class. Kate Middleton, as she was, was a Capricorn. Middle class to future Queen. It works the other way too. Cancer-Capricorn is the woman who puts a sanctuary, home, garden, love for a town or country, above success. As you go into Pluto in Aquarius, the first thing you will notice is that the corruption of 2008-2023 is gone. All that can remain are the arrests and deaths, actually. It’s very close, historically, to the end of colonisation and King George III and Captain Cook. The end of the French aristocracy. If you want to play your part you won’t even have to ask. It’s long.
Wow, from 2008 has been a long hard slog with my business, but more than that my health has taken a turn as per your general ‘libra’ comments this year. Have you any thoughts how it might play out going forward?
As always, thanks you…
You are a Sun Libra with a huge Virgo stellium in your Sixth House of health, wellbeing, mental health, physical constitution. The Sixth House also rules daily routine, lifestyle, paid work, unpaid work and housework. There are solutions for you between October and December so take them. If you didn’t take one earlier, it may return, and this time you should say yes, according to your solar chart and natal chart. The Virgo stellium runs from 6 to 26 degrees so you will experience trines from Uranus (radical, revolutionary change) and Pluto (deep transformation) going forward. You cannot work or live, or look after yourself, as you once did. You are experiencing oppositions from Neptune (confusing, confused, mysterious challenges) too and eventually you’ll go through the Saturn oppositions starting May 2023 to Christmas 2025. So this is a transformation waiting to happen. It’s incredibly important that you update yourself continually on all things health-related in this period. The bottom line with Virgo stellium women is their whole lifestyle, including their attitude towards work. Virgo is about work which respects your health on every level. If the job does not honour and serve your entire constitution, then it should be questioned. We are seeing a lot of women resign or take early retirement and they all have Uranus and Pluto in Virgo (they are in their fifties). However this pans out for you, always remember that you have an intense dedication to service and duty but your first duty is to your entire wellbeing! That’s the Virgo lecture over.
Hi Jessica Im fascinated by astrology and how accurate it is.Trying to learn but seems to be going back n forth with it so don’t really have a clue about my chart.
I have some placements in Capricorn and life has been very difficult at times since 2009 particularly.Any insight into where I’m heading will be gratefully appreciated.Thank you
You are a Sun Gemini with a Taurus stellium in your Second House of personal income and values, and a Scorpio stellium in your Eighth House of joint finance and property. Ever since 2008, you have been dealing with deep and often very difficult questions about power and money, or control and property. This may have been landlord-tenant. It may have been family or partners. Every time you conquer one challenge another one arises. It feels particularly important in 2022, 2023 as the nodes are crossing Taurus and Scorpio too. Yet from July 18th 2023 the hard part is behind you. The lunar nodes leave Taurus and Scorpio. Even in your solar chart we find Pluto slowly leaving your Eighth House by then, and he’s gone completely from November 20th 2024. So the late twenties will be unrecognisable for you in terms of what you remember in recent years. Your house, apartment, income, salary, accounting will be free of the politics at long last.
I am following up on a few questions I had asked a few years ago. I have Mercury at 27 Capricorn, North Node at 23 Aries and South Node at 23 Libra. I have had a rough five years with my children during this Pluto transit. Now that there is some light at the end of the tunnel, what can I expect as far as my relationship with my children goes? Thank you and your readings are amazing.
Thank you. You are a Sun Capricorn, and the other signs are also cardinal. Children are of course the progeny of two parents and Libra describes the other parent. Some of this is about the genetic inheritance from the other parent – or the impact of their parenting on the child. You are in a fantastic cycle for family repair work. It ends in October then restarts January-May 2023 when a little effort with your offspring will go a very long way. But as I said, it’s about the other person, actually. So it starts with the pair of you.
Hello Jessica, thank you so much, fascinating article about Lord Pluto and i really enjoyed the illustration of the planet (i learned more than in physics class 30 years ago !)
I am born with a mercury at 28 degrees in capricorn and i can confirm all the changes in my workplace : a whole generation forced to retire in advance even when most of them dont want to, a new CEO, the departure of also all the tech guys who were not considered at their value and now have found employments elsewhere…
And since Pluto has conjunct my mercury, i feel a bit powerless, a go-between, like i dont have my usual independance or will…I dont know if its an illusion of if i can fight this. I feel drained of my usual fighting strenghts, like i am watching and old theatre play and i dont want to be part of it anymore. Those rules from an old world do not concern me anymore.
I am deeply aquarius with a huge stellium so i guess i am waiting for the next world.
However i fear the arrival of pluto on my moon (1°50 degrees) and then mars (5°degrees) in aquarius (and then sun and then it wont stop, all the stellium is waiting) : could it be related to my emotional life, my mum, and my brother or a new partner with mars ? or is it just linked with group of friends or associations ? Thank you Jessica
Thank you. It’s a good graphic, isn’t it? Have to say, the astronomy section on iStock is a gift for astrologers too. Thank you for validating the astrology. You have perfectly expressed what it feels like to have Pluto in conjunction with your Mercury, by transit. You are worried about Pluto’s transit in Aquarius, though. Mercury at 28 Capricorn and the Moon at 1 Aquarius suggests you will be caught between two worlds in 2022, 2023, 2024 with 2025 being the final move into the new existence. You will go from career to friendship. From ambition to people power. From the system, to the community. This is not about your mother. If you think about your Tenth House, ruled by Capricorn, as a space where you naturally live online, talk your way through life, put it all in writing – then you can see why Pluto is a challenge. Your tech experts have gone. That’s a clue. The answer with this long transit is to create your own world, within that world, where you feel dominated. In other words, do your thing. Create your own system and use willpower to implement it. She, he or they can do what they do; you do, you! The last pass of Pluto at 28 Capricorn is Christmas 2023. As this is quite obviously when people leave/start jobs, this will affect you, or you will actually quit/start work by January 2024 in a new direction which signals the end of being dominated. When that happens, get it in writing, read the fine print and prepare for temporary flux, as Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn is with you in December 2023, January 2024. This looks like momentous change, though. The friends and groups which are centre-stage when Pluto is in conjunction with your Moon from February 2024 suggests to me a new job for you, or a new environment in your old job, with new faces. From February 2024 you realise that your core need to be needed (by friends) and your caretaker role with groups in general – is absolutely going to be changed. It’s like being Mother Hen in the farmyard and having a new farmer, or a new farm. Again, the solution as always with Pluto is to draw on tremendous willpower and self-discipline to push back against what you do not want, and to strengthen and intensity what you can use. February 2024 will change your life. The Tarot can help you more closer to the time.
Dear Jessica, Thank you for your wonderful and timely article. Like someone else commented, just when I wonder about a particular issue or transit, I can log in and see that you have just created an article that addresses that very thing. You are completely in tune with your readers and I deeply appreciate this! I have zero chart factors in Capricorn but was heavily affected in the area that you have listed for Librans: home, family, home town, and homeland. Just when Pluto entered Capricorn in 2008, I moved to my husband’s country. He is heavily Capricorn as is his family. Since then it’s been a lot of ups and downs and struggles living there and trying to fit in and in Dec 2019, we finally moved to a country where I feel at home but my husband doesn’t. I feel the main reason he is unhappy here is that he is struggling to establish his career here. He works in Oil and Gas and is looking to move into the renewables industry. Can you look at his chart and see what you expect? He has Capricorn in the crucial 29 degrees that you mentioned. What can he and I expect from this huge change of Pluto changing signs? Here are his chart factors: Sun 10° Capricorn 53′ 04″ Moon 17° Capricorn 44′ 46″ Mercury 29° Capricorn 04′ 54″ Ops 26° Capricorn 29′ 09″ Venus 00° Sagittarius 47′ 32″ Neptune 12° Sagittarius 34′ 02″ Uranus 06° Scorpio 25′ 25″ Minerva 19° Scorpio 12′ 14″ Bacchus 18° Scorpio 47′ 45″ Cupido 16° Scorpio 07′ 05″ NorthNode 20° Scorpio 42′ 09″ R ASC 21° Scorpio 02′ 54″ SouthNode 20° Taurus 42′ 09″ R DESC 21° Taurus 02′ 54″ Mars 17° Gemini 04′ 12″ R Ceres 02° Gemini 15′ 15″ R Psyche 08° Gemini 28′ 48″ R Jupiter 15° Aries 37′ 16″ Chiron 23° Aries 35′ 13″ R Panacea 09° Aries 23′ 37″ Saturn 00° Leo 58′ 24″ R Fortuna 16° Leo 17′ 55″ R Apollo 17° Leo 28′ 18″ R Pluto 11° Libra 39′ 58″ Vulcano 05° Libra 17′ 31″ Juno 18° Virgo 58′ 52″ MC 19° Virgo 20′ 48″ Aesculapia 24° Virgo 59′ 00″ Hygeia 01° Cancer 12′ 58″ R Salacia 05° Aquarius 41′ 44″ Proserpina 04° Pisces 55′ 09″ Vesta 29° Pisces 00′ 47″ IC 19° Pisces 20′ 48″ Diana 05° Pisces 20′ 52″
Thank you. I do try and tune into what readers want, and preferably well ahead of time, so that people are prepared. I’m not really a fan of astrologers who jump on an event once it’s happened and then put up complicated charts to back-explain things. Astrology predicts the future so you can minimise any issues before they expand, and take full advantage of opportunities as they arise. As a Sun Libra person you have been going through Pluto in Capricorn in your solar Fourth House of family, home town, household, property, homeland since 2008. You and your husband disagree about where to live. He’s trying to leave fossil fuel and go into renewables (smart move, according to astrology). He’s also a Sun Capricorn. His financial burden ends in March 2023. He then makes a slow transition into a new budget, with the transformation complete from November 2024. The year 2025 is the full new beginning for him. Your burdens about where to live end in March 2023, so on a similar time-frame. You don’t say if you have children or not. Children, stepchildren, godchildren, young relatives are your personal main event story for decades into the future. This begins in a really obvious way from March 2023. The world of children, teenagers and Millennials can be empowering for you, long-term, if you find who and what is right for you and summon up huge amounts of personal power, self-discipline and will to achieve it.
Thanks for all you do. I’ve learned so much from reading your site. I am blown away by your ability to reposed to so many comments You must love wha you do. I’m envious!
From your site I’ve learned to pay attention to Pluto because I feel like it has made my life difficult since 2008 and have been looking forward to March 2023 for quite awhile. I can completely relate to MBR’s comment about having “a life before 2008 and many lives after 2008.”
Since 2008 I have lost my job twice (most recently April 13, 2022 my position was eliminated), I’ve been financially wiped out and slowly rebuilt a small savings, I’ve had both parents die, a life-long best friend (since 5 yrs old) pass away, and had a heart attack (even though I’m in great shape.)
Right now I’m stressed about finding work and building financial security for the future, but I keep telling myself that 2023 will give me a new positive life. I know life will get better.
All the best!
Thank you Chris. It seems a lot of people had a life before 2008, and a life after 2008. Maybe it should be called BP and AP (Before Pluto, After Pluto). You have gone through the full Pluto transit in a really difficult way. The astrologer Caroline Casey associates Pluto with that kind of transformative, critical process. You have lost jobs, lost money, seen parents and friends pass away, and survived a heart attack. You are a Sun Libra with a Scorpio stellium in your Eighth House of legacies so it hasn’t only been about Pluto. Your Scorpio stellium is at the heart of oppositions from Uranus in Taurus, and that cycle always radically changes the old world. Now, you know the value of good health. You will be offered an opportunity to hugely improve your physical and mental wellbeing in October-December this year. A partnership (personal or professional) will move forward in a stunning way, between now and October, or you will form a new duet with a person you consider to be your other half. Long-term you will save or make money, May 2023 to May 2024 so get the best advice you can afford, then.
HI Jessica, Thanks for what you give to the community and globe through your knowledge and gift to all.
I am a sun Scorpio and Minerva 5 degrees capricorn and bacchus 13 degrees capricorn. What can you tell me about life for me during the pluto transition into aquarius and then from 2024?
Thank you. Okay, so using the natal chart and solar chart together, the Scorpio and Aquarius patterns suggest family money, household finances, partnership and property, the house/apartment in the context of your legacy to others, and any legacy naming you. This is karmic in nature and goes back about 18 or 19 years. The South Node in Scorpio is there until 18th July 2023 so you have just over 12 months to sort out the agreements, any paperwork, and your own life budget. Pluto goes into your solar Fourth House of family and property in March 2023, as you know, meanwhile in your natal chart, we find your Eighth House of joint money, assets or debts is well and truly tenanted by the South Node. Decision time.
In 2008, I started my academic career. Master degree, PHD and then became an academia as a profession during this 15 years.
I am wondering what will happen to me when Pluto enter Aquarius in this new transition.
You are a Sun Scorpio with a Sagittarius stellium in your Ninth House of academia and will find that new technology and new inventions from 2026 transforms your career until the year 2033. Uranus in Gemini will oppose your Sagittarius stellium for many years. Globalisation ends then and with it the old travel and borders structures. This profoundly affects the universities and foreign student income streams. Zoom will look very old-fashioned in 2026-2033 as the world moves into radically different ways of educating/being educated. You will be swept up in that and also align yourself with a very powerful group of people, as Pluto in Aquarius will sextile your Sagittarius stellium along the way. When Pluto goes to 20 Aquarius and triggers the 20 degree patterns you have in the Ninth House and Eleventh House (starting in 2036) you will change the world with your group, and the group will change your world too.
I’m fascinated to see that Capricorn rules manufacturing – I never knew this before. I worked for a tech company serving manufacturers during the pandemic when manufacturing was thrust into the spotlight for the first time in decades due to supply chain issues and mass production of new types of vaccine. I was wondering what you see happening for the manufacturing industry once Pluto departs Capricorn?
And what’s in store for my own career? You mentioned that renewable energy is the new industrial revolution and next week I have an interview for a company that reduces energy usage and manages renewable energy assets.
Thanks Ciara. Capricorn rules manufacturing because it exists in high-rise buildings and Capricorn the goat climbs the highest mountains to the peak. The top brass live on the top floor. Capricorn also rules companies where you start as the office junior and replace the boss. Again, the idea of climbing from the bottom to the top. Once Pluto leaves Capricorn you will find some of the corruption associated with COVID-19 ends. By that, I mean organisations and politicians which have capitalised on the pandemic will fail or depart, for whatever reason. Power goes back to the people in slow stages and from November 2024 we move into a different world, ongoing. You are not logged in, so I cannot see your chart, but if you are being interviewed for a job in renewables, look at anything you have in Taurus in the Second House of income and shares. Uranus in Taurus is a symbol of the new world economy, which replaces the old coal, gas, petrol, kerosene economy and of course the ‘China is the world’s factory’ economy. Anything you have in Taurus at 15, 16, 17, 18 is picked up by Uranus by Christmas, so a new income source is coming, if so. If shares are offered, double that message.
thank you for your insightful article and for taking the time to answer all the questions. As far as Pluto in Capricorn is concerned, after many years of continuous work, failures, and dogged determination, I landed in 2008 an extremely prestigious position which demanded and still demands a lot. For the last 14 years I have been asked to prove myself non-stop, and I have, climbing the ladder steadily, again through a lot of work, and having often to face criticism and put-downs. I also had to deal and I am still dealing with controlling and abusive behaviors from my now ex-husband, with whom I share children. This relentless behavior takes a huge toll on me as I am shielding the kids and legally there is not much I can do without taking an enormous financial and emotional risk for an uncertain result. In a nutshell, a very trying period, with many rewards, but a high price paid and still paying. My question is whether all this will ease somehow after this next Pluto transit; I am hoping for a calmer personal life, not in a permanent state of alert, and a professional life with recognition.
Thank you for your help
Thank you. This is another amazing example of Pluto in Capricorn over the long term. In your case, actually since 2008. The ladder at work has been hard. Your former husband has shown up as Pluto – controlling. You have children and they have to come first but you have really taken the strain. You are a Sun Aries with a Capricorn pattern including Vesta at 27 degrees. Do you have daughters? Are female relatives around the situation with your former husband? Does work put you in a situation with one or more females, and one male in charge? The reason I ask this is that Vesta is always about gender politics. A man who encourages a harem who puts himself at the top. Pluto is crossing 27 Capricorn for the first time in 248 years and this Pluto-Vesta conjunction may have shown up already. It will continue to do so as late as October 2023 by which time it’s fading out. Vesta is best handled by joining forces with the other girls/women against the man. Keep your sense of humour. If not, he will try to manipulate the situation and pit you against each other for his own ego. This can happen if a former husband takes a new girlfriend. He may try to have you compete! Or, his mother gets involved, and his sister. It can be on that level. Okay so now you know what to avoid, the good news is, the people politics ends in March 2023. In March, April, May and early June you are shown what life might be like professionally without the power and control questions. Again, from January 2024 until September 2024, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Over both these periods, it may be that problematic people leave, you are offered a better deal elsewhere, or new rules come in which change the politics. November 2024 onwards confirms it. You can turn your back on the past and enjoy a career where you do not regularly feel dominated by someone or something trying to take over. You will make or save quite a lot of money between May 2023 and May 2024 which will also help you to feel happier. Over the very long-term, new and powerful friends will change your life, or you will find old friends draw closer – these people are also quite powerful.
Another great post … but clarification please. I’m one of those who can hardly wait for Trump’s influence to be gone.
“She works together with Pluto (they are related in the Roman myth) and so the beginning of the end of the Trumps, plural, and their peculiar hold over the Republican Party, seems imminent with Ceres in Capricorn from February 8th 2024 until December 7th, 2024.”
In another post you indicated 2023 would be his downfall. Since nothing seems to stick for him to be held accountable for anything, is his beginning of the end in 2023 with complete influence gone by end of 2024?
Thanks Kim. Just to repeat, ‘the beginning of the end of the Trumps, plural, and their peculiar hold over the Republican Party.” Donald Trump will be jailed, become incapacitated or leave the planet before December 7th 2024, by all the laws of history and astrology. 2023 is the beginning of the end. The overall story for the Republican Party extends, though, so we have another couple of years or so to go. It seems interminable because Pluto takes a very long time to pass through Capricorn. His first downfall was actually predicted in 2020, and it happened to the month – October. Have a look at Search. I predicted Donald Trump would go down and he became infected with COVID-19 and left the White House for hospital. Later on, of course, he lost to a Biden landslide.
You have been working hard this week!
I often find that the questions and answers are as informative as the blog itself
In this case, I am looking at your comment on 8th June at 7.20pm in “the end of Pluto in Capricorn” where you say that we haven’t seen the most serious version of Covid yet
Have I missed this? Can you elaborate as to timing etc on this, or point to the relevant blog / answer please
Yes, I have been working very hard – it’s snowing in Hobart so the best thing to do is stay indoors by the fire with the dog sitting under the desk. I agree, the Comments extend the features and I’m very lucky to have the calibre of visitors, that I do (and they all write in). The most serious version yet of COVID-19 will appear when Saturn enters Pisces on March 8th 2023. I would time it a day earlier, actually, because we have a Full Moon in Virgo opposite the Sun in Pisces on 7th March. In astrology, any time we see Pisces transits, we have epidemics or pandemics, particularly when accompanied by other transits also in the mutable signs, like Gemini, Sagittarius and Virgo. This time, in March 2023, we also have Neptune in Pisces. We will see a new variant of COVID-19 which Pfizer and AstraZeneca (and the rest) are no match for. Why? Because there are billions of us on the planet with Virgo factors, in our shared Sixth House of hospitals, immunity, vaccination and public health. In other words, until Saturn is out of Pisces on February 14th 2026, the world will have to come together to get serious about COVID-19 and actually address the problem, which is travel. This is really old astrology. Every time we have a plague, historically, we have cycles in the mutable signs Pisces, Virgo, Gemini and/or Sagittarius. Gemini rules short journeys. Sagittarius rules foreign journeys. They clash with Virgo (health) every time. Will the WHO and UN finally do something about the core issue? Yes. Unfortunately Saturn with all his tests and trials, takes us there. The other huge innovation will be air filtering/air treatment indoors. That will take us to 100% COVID-19 elimination inside, but the remaining problem will be outdoor air quality. Nations which cannot get rid of industrial air pollution/coal/petrol/gas/kerosene will continue to see people infected in large numbers. That’s what the astrology is showing: my colleagues at a recent online conference at the Mayo School of Astrology were touching on this too.
Hi Jessica, I my Sun, Mercury and Salacia all in 10th House Capricorn. In 2008 I officially split from my husband and it has been one rollercoaster but I have walked through the flames and getting my phoenix feathers on! I am about to launch into teaching and building a healing community after having finally reached financial settlement with my ex in the coming months. Wondering what the transition into Aquarius will bring as I have a stellium there so imagine it will be another hectic few years. Thank you for your insights and wisdom x
You are a Sun Capricorn with the nodes at 13 Taurus/Scorpio across your Second House of personal income and values, and your Eighth House of joint finance and property. Uranus (the shock, the revolution) has been at 13 Taurus, so on that axis for the first and last time in your life. That cycle is now over and you had a classic outcome. You split from your husband and the money is coming. The burden is over from March 2023. The new beginning with business, finance, charity, property, valuables begins the same month. It goes in stops and starts but from November 2024 it is here to stay for decades into your future. Your teaching career and healing community is Aquarian by nature and these people will change your life. Get everything in writing, read the fine print and have a professional pair of eyes on all agreements. That way friends can remain friends and together you can make incredible things happen.
Thank you for your reply. I would LOVE to see you post a longer feature on this coming change to the Virgo/health placements of billions and on what we might expect with the coming covid variants. Health is indeed work which is health. Very insightful. The many generations of life under tyranny, of “working for the man” until exhausted are coming to an end.
Regarding a covid/health feature: As a holistic physician I am conservative in coming to judgement and increasingly believe that covid did not just begin as covid in Wuhan China in late 2019. During the years prior we were seeing some of the worst, most tenacious flus ever. The summer of 2019 in the southern hemisphere through winter 2019/2020 was a whopper. I suffered from whatever that flu was too, caught in Aug 2019 in Australia. I went on to see it move through my native USA as colder seasons arrived. The symptoms were, in hindsight, so close to the early covid variant symptoms. Most of my patients swear they had covid. Certainly the long lasting symptoms are at least a mimic of long covid. Interesting detail is that the one thing that finally started clearing the lung damage was use of the covid 19/Wuhan nosode – homeopathic form. Nothing else was working. I am experienced. This is an exact match and would be a very strange coincidence. Adding 2 + 2 here makes me wonder very seriously how long covid has been around.
Always, much gratitude for you and your work.
Thank you. I’ve had a few people (unsurprisingly) ask for more information about COVID-19 after March 2023. I’m going to put away some research on HIV-AIDS as it is directly related, and then post the feature later. Your phrase, “working for the man” says it all perfectly. The Virgo and Sixth House dual meaning can’t be ignored with Covid. It’s about work and housework, unpaid work and study. And serving others. Yet, unless you serve your physical and mental health, you cannot serve others at all. (Much as they would love you to do that). It’s interesting what you say about the flu, before Covid. You are a holistic physician and know. You are American but saw it in Australia as well. Has the virus been around since 2019 and earlier? Good question. Homeopathy is another question again. For all that Virgo rules the body it also rules the mind and spirit. The Royal Family have used homeopathy for years. And lived for many years, too.
Hi Jessica. I have joined primarily to ask about March 2023 for me. I have my Sun at 28 degrees 47′ of Cancer. In fact, I have 6 planets and things in Cancer. (I am so ready for Pluto to move on.)
Sure. Your Sun at 28 Cancer in the Fourth House of home, property, home town, homeland, family will be opposed by Pluto at 28 Capricorn repeatedly. He’s already there, having hovered in March, April, May (retrograde) and will drop in and out of that opposition until September 2023 (so you do get long breaks from this) when he returns to 28 and Christmas 2023, which seems the likeliest month for great change, as families come together (or not) at Christmas and the end of the year is often a time for house or apartment decisions too. You actually have a Sun-Uranus conjunction at 28 Cancer, so the opposition will change your life and it has already begun. You also have Aesculapia at 28 Capricorn in your Tenth House of career, academia and unpaid work. This describes comebacks, revivals, resurrections. What or who you had assumed was virtually over, comes back from the brink. This may be a colleague or a company. A project or a role. In general, life in 2022 and 2023 is about the most powerful people or organisations dominating what you do, why you do it, and where you do it – professionally, academically or as a volunteer. To retain control over yourself and your world you have to use self-control to a very great degree, but it will also be the making of you. At the same time, we are seeing a deep questioning of your identity within the family circle, and perhaps specifically with a house or apartment, a block of land, your town and your country. This reminds you who you are, where you come from and where you belong. It is also far from easy. But there are ways to get through this with minimum issues and the Tarot can help you with that, in a more personal way.
Jessica I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to answer my question. You were spot on in that during my long covid I met change with change and had a big house move and also kept up with a thriving business. I will make certain to carve out time for self care in February and March 2024 and I appreciate the advance notice . Thank you for all that you do. Acupuncture has been such a help at getting some healing after covid. I thought my capricorn placement was responsible for bringing me the grief… I’ll have to watch out for the unassuming Virgo placements. I see now that rest is as important as hard work.
Thank you for validating the prediction. The acupuncture tip is useful for other readers!
I’m so glad I found your blog! It came up yesterday in a search for info on Pluto in Capricorn. I read your earlier post about the end of Pluto in Capricorn from February and joined up. Now I see your update on the topic 🙂 I’m also following you on Twitter now and appreciate the Jan 6 content.
My Sun is in 26 degrees Capricorn, so Pluto has been influencing me for a long time and I was curious about “the end” and what else is in store for me / how to make the most of the transformation.
Thank you. Transiting Pluto in conjunction with the natal Sun in Capricorn in the Tenth House of career, academia and unpaid work involves being taken over by men, organisations or events (like Covid) which seek to dominate. In an effort to resist that you transform. You have to use your willpower to become empowered and your self-control to gain control. It can be the making of you. Pluto back at 26 Capricorn in August-October 2022 is your next challenge.
Thanks for your Pluto work especially.
I have Pluto transiting natal Chiron and opposing natal Venus.
I had an serious accident accident in March 2019, lost my job as I couldn’t cope anymore and am now at the point of no return in a court case re accident. I am financially, mentally and physically very stressed. Am hanging in in the hope that things improve soon. Any pointers to a better future?
Thank you. You have Vulcano and the IC in Virgo in your Sixth House of work, health, duty, service, daily routine and wellbeing. I am so sorry about your accident in March 2019. Vulcano is at 9 Virgo and the IC is at 17 Virgo. (The IC is an abbreviation for Immum Coeli). Sure enough in March 2019 Neptune moved to 17 Pisces, exactly opposite your IC at 17 Virgo and in conjunction with your MC (Midheaven) at 17 Pisces. This is a classic Virgo-Pisces split and that month saw a pattern not possible more than once in your lifetime. You also had transiting Saturn at 17 Capricorn, aspecting the same point in your chart. The good news is, despite this very tough time, you have an answer. It is religion, spirituality, hypnosis, meditation or another invisible outlet. Your IC/MC axis is Virgo-Pisces and that’s the whole story. An ancestor bequeathed it to you. You may have had a priest in the family tree, for example, or a doctor. There may have been (even further back with ancestors) some huge struggle for a family member about God versus work, or God versus military service. Anyway, this is your life now. Use the Tarot, Garden Oracle and Astrology Oracle to see how you can ‘do’ Pisces to help Virgo. Perhaps you are already a Buddhist or are already using hypnosis. Perhaps not. Whatever your path is, transiting Uranus at 17 Taurus in 2022 will change your life, liberate you and set you free.
Hi Jessica! I am Sun Virgo with 5 factors in Capricorn – Mars, Juno, Ceres, Panacea and Salacia. Do you mind taking a look at my chart and tell me if the key dates you listed mean loss of jobs or change of jobs for me? Or maybe promotions? February 2023 means the end of a 15-year pressures related to children, pregnancies, young relatives, sexual relationships for Virgos – what would it mean for me if I do not have any? Finally, I have Aesculapia at 29 in Cancer – what does this mean for July 11, 2023 key date?
You have Vesta and Venus in Leo in the Fifth House of courtship, heirs to the throne, pretenders to the throne and young subjects. That’s your natal chart. In your solar chart, transiting Pluto has been in your Fifth House since 2008 and leaves in March 2023, where his domination disappears. Amazing that you have not had a sexual relationship since 2008, nor any young relatives or godchildren. Quite extraordinary. Have a look at the Tarot to see how this cycle has occurred for you and where it will take you next.
Thank you for your reply.
Very interesting and exciting to hear what will happen to me in the new cycle. so, because Aquarius is about group and friends, will I have more activities with groups? Because of pandamic and other issue, I really feel being isolated these couple of years. really like to be in a group with like-minded people and achieve something wonderful. By the way, Aquarius should be the Fourth house in my solar chart, does that mean my household environment or family will also get transformed after Pluto enter Aquarius. what would happen in that area?
Thank you again.
Thank you. You are a Sun Scorpio with three factors in Aquarius in the Eleventh House of friends and groups. Saturn goes out of there in March 2023 and Pluto moves in. Your natal chart reveals a bump when this happens. So you may become a part-time or full-time resident in a shared house with one or more friends. The end of the limitations, restrictions, fears, grim realities and unavoidable truths with your social life ends in March 2023. It ends for everybody, actually, but particularly people with Aquarius factors. We don’t know why, but March matters.
I have Desc 15 deg and Minerva in 28 deg Capricorn. My birthday is in 23 March, hope I get paid better. I always wanted to be my own boss, will that ever happen, as my responsibilities keep piling up with very less cooperation from my partner.
Pluto in conjunction with Minerva at 28 Capricorn will transform the way you operate at work, with unpaid work or university. You will be taken over, in part, by men, organisations or events which seek to dominate. Resist and use self-control to get control. Use your willpower to become empowered. The pressure is off from the mid 2020’s. Watch for owls as symbols of encouragement to use your wisdom. Your partner is a separate issue.
Spot on, Jessica. The “come back / revival” was my decision to take my art seriously after two of my siblings died of COVID; my invalid sister died in October of 2020 and my brother died on my birthday in 2021. My “identity within the family circle” seems to be the ‘cleaner up of the probate messes my brother left’ including our father’s estate from 1996! I have all of the responsibility for my sister’s and father’s estates but my brother got all of their money before he died. I was the black sheep, the seventh disappointment (my parents wanted a son), late to marry, the only one divorced, a scientist, the only non-racist, democrat, etc., etc. I am trying to sell my father’s estate and settle my sister’s debts even though 2/3 will go to my brother’s wife. I have a disabled daughter who lives with me (working on her masters degree); I have always been someone’s caregiver. My son hasn’t spoken to me in 5 years. Their father left 5 days after my son was born. Do you see any hope of freedom or relief for me …ever? I’m like the kid digging in the pile of manure exclaiming, “There’s got to be a pony in here, somewhere.” Please tell me there will be a happy ending. I want to travel and paint. And maybe one day be loved.
Thank you. The revival came after two siblings died from Covid, for which I am very sorry. It is an awful way to die and two of my friends have been lost that way. Fortunately you are now up to speed with the astrology and I’ve filed a reply to you elsewhere. Do use the Tarot for validation in a personal way.
Jessica, first, please scratch out the second half of that previous reply. I was hurting. I sometimes get that way…so tired of the struggle. My daughter reminded me I get plenty of love from our three kittens. I have so many significant aspects in my chart (North Node conjunct Galactic Center; Lilith on Great Attractor; Eris on Mid Heaven; Venus conjunct Mercury; Mars conjunct Jupiter; Sun conjunct Uranus) and I have endured or accomplished significant things in my life in spite of abuse. But I keep seeking more accomplishments to reach some plateau to fill the emptiness inside. I finally realized I needed to take my art seriously and to the highest level that I can. Philip Sedgwick has been pushing me to keep trying to get my art ‘out there.’ But I’m not good enough yet for galleries and nothing has sold elsewhere. And now I am in debt and I feel the looming of the possible loss of my government pension because of the ‘end of Pluto in Capricorn.’ When you say ‘self-discipline’ I think I hear “no travel, no courses, no cruises. No submission fees, no framing, no festivals. Watch online (free) videos, read instructional books from the library, and paint, paint, paint.” I have thrown the Tarot for myself for years and it helps me every time. But can you suggest what might be good ways to pose ‘questions’ for the Tarot? Thank you so much!
Thank you I have replied to you elsewhere.
Hi Jessica, thank you so much for all the light and guidance you bring through this website. I have a Capricorn stellium in my 10th house, with Mars, Saturn and Uranus all at 0 degrees and Neptune at 9 degrees. I feel like this is significant somehow but I don’t really understand why, or what this means with the current Pluto transit! If you could offer any guidance I would be most grateful. Thank you.
Thank you. To be strongly Capricorn is to find yourself through your career, unpaid role or academic career. You need to fulfil your mission, which is to respect the system, climb the ladder and spend years if necessary, getting to the top. Kate Moss went from Croydon to the cover of VOGUE. Kate Middleton went from middle-class Britain to royalty. So the quest is to honour the mountain and make the attempt, following the rules to get there. It is very, very important to know the ‘mountain’ and what the steps are. It may be a big business like Goldman Sachs. An organisation like the Conservative party. A social strata, like the best and most prestigious club. There is no point in taking on all the pressure of 2022, 2023, 2024 (when Pluto is in Capricorn, on and off) unless you very much want to be at the top, or stay at the top. If you do not, then you need a different mountain. That will be evident to you in December, January.
Jessica, (please delete both previous replies now.) I sat with the Tarot late last night and within the first few cards I knew how I was blocking my own progress and I figured out how to handle the estate stuff. Thank you so much for your guidance. Like I said, your insights were spot on.
This is fantastic. Thank you.
Hi Jessica: Thank you! I enjoy reading your blog…So many changes and difficult times I’ve experienced since 2008. I am wondering what the next 2-3 years hold for me both career-wise and in life…
Thank you. Decisions about your house or apartment will really dominate what you do in 2023, 2024, 2025 and the second half of the Twenties will very likely find you in a new home, new town, possibly even a new country. Even if you stay put you will renovate quite dramatically. A burden or waiting game, test of patience and (perhaps even) what you would call an ordeal involving your property, will vanish next March. Snap up a fantastic work-related opportunity by October. It will go to the next level from January-May 2023 or its success will spawn a second opportunity as good as the first one.
Thank you so much Jessica. I also wondered as my Venus and Moon are in Aquarius as well as the descendant, will there be an effect on my romantic life as I am currently single?
Venus is a symbol of seduction, sometimes adultery, always erotic escapades, and usually complicated relationships! Put her in Aquarius along with. your Descendant (DC) which shows partners, and you have a friend who becomes your other half. Pluto will bring the huge change to your social life, friendships and groups over many years, starting in March. When Pluto reaches your Venus and DC a friendship within the group will become a romance, yes.
Thank you so much for responding so quickly! I have been reading your article about Covid and the likelihood of another, more serious, mutation arriving in March 2023. March 2020 was a challenge for massage therapists like myself, BoJo classified us as massage parlours?! Whilst chiros, osteos and physios could still work, we can to downhands for 4 months. With mental health and stress through the roof, We have been busier than ever.
I saw your info about air purifiers and wondered whether I should be looking at something along this line to introduce in readiness to reduce C-19 risk? I want to do everything I can to keep working and supporting. I am also one of those who will have Saturn in Pisces Opposing Pluto and Uranus in Virgo which looks to be a strong placement that will be playing out for many of us.
Thanks again for all of your advice and wisdom and for the amazing website that is such a mine of information. Hope you and your Doggo are toasty this Sunday.
I have replied to you elsewhere, thank you. Tess is having a holiday and so am I, and we both have tweed on!
I am in absolute awe of your work and what you do. Thank you so much for sharing your gifts with us! I recently received a promotion at work (I work in healthcare), and have been given the responsibility of designing a new service and setting up a new team. It’s definitely outside of my comfort zone and I constantly battle with feelings of inadequacy. Do you see it working out for me? Ultimately, although overall I do enjoy my work, I am doing this project purely for financial reasons – to improve my family’s housing situation and also give my daughter more options for her education. Any insights into my chart in this respect, would be very gratefully received!
Thank you for your time and expertise Jessica.
Thank you, that’s very kind of you. Congratulations on your promotion. You have imposter syndrome which is very common. You are in healthcare and one month on (you wrote on 12th June) I hope you have banished imposter syndrome. You’re doing it for the money but have a lot of responsibility as the pandemic rolls on. Juno at 29 Capricorn in your Tenth House of career tells me that you will have to work very hard in 2022, 2023, 2024 to own the commitment and push back against who or what tries to dominate. This may be a man. It may be an organisation. It may be the pandemic itself or Monkeypox. Juno is about ‘marrying the job’ and for better or worse, you have to accept a large part of 2022-2024 will be spent honouring the vow. You will continue to get prestige, lifestyle comforts and status but freedom may be lacking. This is temporary. It will also be the making of you, if you can find the self-control and willpower to push back against who/what dominates. When Pluto pushes, you become empowered by using sheer grit and self-discipline. From the mid 2020’s this phase of your life is over, either with this job or even another one, but you will have gained self-respect, self-confidence and real potency from your efforts.
Trying again as I posted this a few days ago.
Another fascinating post and thank you for the insights you’re sharing with us. “if you do have Capricorn natal chart factors, then you have probably lost one or more jobs” “Bad employers or incompetent bosses and managers who tried to take total control of your project, or your career. The Little Hitler or Marie Antoinette syndrome: out of touch and out of order.” The two above comments sums up my life since 2019. Currently out of work and I’m at a crossroads still trying to figure out my next career move. On 16th May, I drew a Eight of Swords and 24th May an Ace of Pentacles on your website but I’ve struggled to interpret both cards. I know you’ve a lot of important questions from other people to answer but hoping you can help with insights you can share by looking at my chart. Many thanks for your anticipated insights.
Thank you for your patience. This has been a popular feature with almost 120 replies. I am so sorry you have been Plutoed! You are very lucky to have drawn the Ace of Pentacles and assuming your question was about 2022, will be able to take a lump sum this year, if you believe in it, and want it enough. You may already know about it. If not, it will appear by October 2022 or January-May 2023. That will help you to create a new life as you have been through some very difficult days with people who have been trying to take over, or actually taken over. You will be amazed at how much more relaxed life feels, professionally, after March 2023 – even for a few months. You will see the light at the end of the tunnel then.
PS to previous comment that isn’t yet visible – besides sun in Capricorn 26 degrees I have Venus in Capricorn at 6 degrees. (Never noticed that before in relation to Pluto transit)
Hi Jessica, I have Desc 15 deg and Minerva in 28 deg Capricorn. My birthday is in 23 March, hope I get paid better. I always wanted to be my own boss, will that ever happen, as my responsibilities keep piling up with very less cooperation from my partner.
You have been talking about money and work for a while. It may be time to really use the Astrology Oracle, The Garden Oracle and the Tarot in a three-way reading that once and for all digs into your issues in a personal way. In any case, Pluto’s departure from Capricorn is the end of politics in your career. It takes time though so the cards on this website will help. Just follow the steps.
“You already had Pluto in conjunction with your MC (Midheaven) in February 2013 and if your birth time was accurate, you lost your job, were promoted, saw colleagues or employers leave/arrive and began a process of people politics that was ongoing in 2014 and may have led to more coming and going, Sam. History!”
Nope, nothing happened like that. I work for myself, so have no work colleagues. Never have lost my job. Haven’t been promoted since I’m self-employed. And no people politics are possible. The only thing that happened was father passed away in May of 2013.
I’m afraid your birth time is wrong. That often happens with the MC and IC unfortunately.
Thank you so much for your reply, that is so helpful.
Just to validate what you said, I took a look back at what happened when Pluto entered Capricorn in 2008. It exactly lined up with my unexpectedly getting a job permanent job (Juno in Capricorn) with a foreign company (Uranus in Sagittarius) which was very lucky timing financially (Jupiter in Scorpio) as it was just before the financial crash. So you hit the nail on the head with your comment above!
Thank you so much for validating the prediction.
I’m a member born 10 July 1987 at 4.25 AM in Tunisia.
What will change for me? I’m still not married and hope to get married Pluto in my 7th house gave me a hard time
I can’t see your chart unfortunately, but if you log in, it should be easier to look at your question using both your natal and solar chart. Thank you.
Hi Jessica! I posted this a few days ago, will very much appreciate a response.
I am Sun Virgo with 5 factors in Capricorn – Mars, Juno, Ceres, Panacea and Salacia. Some of these are close to 29. Do you mind taking a look at my chart and tell me if the key dates you listed mean loss of jobs or change of jobs for me? Or maybe promotions? February 2023 means the end of a 15-year pressures related to children, pregnancies, young relatives, sexual relationships for Virgos – what would it mean for me if I do not have any? Finally, I have Aesculapia at 29 in Cancer – what does this mean for July 11, 2023 key date?
At 24 through 29 degrees, your Virgo (work) and Capricorn (career) patterns are primed for Pluto going across 24 through 29 Capricorn too, as you can see. Thank you for your patience in waiting for a reply. This has attracted 126 comments, and it takes time to find them sometimes. Okay, so Pluto is ruthless and relentless. You will very likely change job and lifestyle, because you have to. This doesn’t mean you lose your job at all. It may be that you feel compelled to seek another. Or, as you rightly guess, you may be promoted. That entails change. You cannot work as you once did. Pluto does not stop pressing the point about self-control, self-discipline and willpower until he changes signs. You do get a break from March 2023 but in general, this period until the mid 2020’s is about consciously transforming the way you perform your duty in the name of your work ethic, at the same time that you look at your biggest ambitions. You can use The Garden Oracle to give you more insight on that as events take place in your work place, industry or field. Sun Virgo people are seeing the end of Pluto in the solar Fifth House too, and that began in 2008, so it’s been a long time coming. You do not need to have children, sexual relationships or young relatives to experience Pluto. You can experience it at work, as the Fifth House is about setting an example to younger people. You can do this as a mentor, guide or instructor. You can also experience it with a younger market or demographic. The Fifth House is also about entertainment which the generations share. That is also an education for children and teenagers and it binds the generations together. So, for example, music, riding, football or even Harry Potter. Not every Virgo experiences this cycle the same way and the Fifth House is complex. Still, it is entirely possible that as Pluto fades out, you will be made a godparent (for example) or begin a sexual relationship with a lover who has a stepson from a previous marriage. It’s on that level.
Hello Jessica, thanks for this great article. While 2008-2018 were great years on the professional level, things went south from 2018 and the last 3 years have been particularly tough with many betrayals and unexpected events that would ruin months of efforts. I have 2 factors in Capricorn so I was wondering if I could expect a positive change… or not . Thanks
You have Virgo (work) and Capricorn (success) factors at 0 through 29 so are experiencing the entire Pluto transit from 0 to 29. Conjunctions and trines alike, from Pluto, challenge you to change. It’s a rule with this cycle. Unless you transform your life, and yourself, you don’t find solutions. Pluto permanently alters whatever he touches. In Sagittarius, he permanently altered tourism and business travel. That was the impact of 9/11. He permanently altered border control and immigration. Also ruled by Sagittarius, the sign we associate with airlines, cruise ships and airports. In Capricorn, he was always going to permanently alter the relationship between politicians, the people, governments and big business. The domino effect hit you personally and you were betrayed and saw plans ruined. Those disappointments were supposed to motivate you to change. You will find these last years of Pluto at 28, 29 Capricorn challenge you to do that. It may mean training for a second or substitute career. It may mean working part-time. Or working on Friday, Saturday, Sunday when everyone else is off, and taking your weekend during the week. You don’t really get results from Pluto transits until you summon up willpower and self-control. That brings empowerment and control. Once Pluto is out of Capricorn this will all look like history to you, but you will hopefully emerge with real clout, from it.
Jessica thanks for your Pluto insights. Can you comment on the effect of transitiing Pluto sitting on natal Chiron and opposite natal Venus please? I am finding life tough.Thanks so much. Jemma
Transiting Pluto at 27 Capricorn is in a rare conjunction with your natal Chiron at 27 Capricorn in the Tenth House of career, academia and unpaid work. You have Venus at 28 Cancer, so the transit is simultaneously in opposition. Venus at 28 Cancer in the Fourth House of family, home town, homeland, house and apartment is about the complicated relationships there. Mother and son, perhaps, or husband and wife. Even if it’s landlord-tenant it can feel intensely personal, like family or a marriage. How do you cope? Well, you get constant breaks from it. August, September, October, November 2022 let you off the hook. At Christmas it’s back on so I suppose this is your family or flatmates, perhaps a live-in partner. Jemma you will likely make a decision then or have it made for you that relieves the pressure with work and home, career or clan, university or household. January, February 2023 are the end game and March-June 2023 shows you what life could be like, without people, events or situations which dominate you. You will replay one situation June 2023 to January 2024 but it has lost its power to affect you. In the meantime the standard advice is to minimise, lower the stakes, reduce – what is there. So you don’t ‘do’ Chiron in Capricorn and ‘do’ Venus in Cancer more than you have to. You would not make 2022, 2023 the years you go all-out to get away with the impossible in your profession, while also trying to play the family as it was Shakespeare or Eastenders! You wouldn’t do that anyway I’m sure, but just be aware. The Tarot can shed light in a more personal way about this timing.
Thank you! What does Aesculapia in Cancer at 29 degrees mean for the key date July 11 2023? I though Aesculapia has to do with health rather than work…
Aesculapia is a comeback, resurrection, rebirth and second life. He was the Roman god of miraculous healing and the Romans built temples to him all over the empire. He is usually shown with a snake and rod (the Rod of Aesculapius) and that symbol is still revered by the medical profession. He only rules health if he is in Virgo and your Sixth House. In all other signs and houses he is about ‘being brought back to life when all seemed lost’ and in Cancer, this is your Fourth House of family, household, house, apartment, town and country. Pluto’s opposition to this in your chart is an exact retelling of the Roman myth. Pluto resented Aesculapia for taking so many people back. There is a situation surrounding your clan, home, property, home town and/or homeland during these oppositions, which occur as late as January 2024, when you assume something/someone was virtually finished. It is not and it all comes back from the brink, but with the most tremendous tussle and struggle. A benign example of this is local woodland earmarked for development by greedy business interests, backed by corrupt politicians, which is then stopped in its tracks. The Tarot will show you how it manifests for you.
You are light to this world! Thank you guidance during these turbulent times.
Since 2008 I’ve completed college, left a violent home life, learned to heal and now in a somewhat stable place. It’s been a whirlwind. Life has been a lonely journey, but I remain hopeful that I will find a partner/family of my own someday. I don’t have children, but I hope to become a foster parent after retirement to help children in difficult situations.
I’m also wondering if I need to move out of state. It seems unlikely I will be able to invest in a home in California. Most people are living with other family members or have a household with multiple incomes. It’ll be difficult for someone who is single to invest in a home.
Your earlier post about the creator of Bitcoin was so interesting. Do you think Bitcoin will bear fruit in the future?
Will Kamala Harris become a bigger part of American politics?
With world leaders ageing, it will be interesting to see the change of power around the world.
Thank you but there is no chart here for me to see and you’ve not told me your birth date. Bitcoin will bear fruit from May 2023 to May 2024 for those with the right Taurus patterns in their natal charts. Kamala Harris could easily be your next President in America, too.
Hi Jessica, thank you for this article. Not sure how to interpret and absorb all the information wondering where Caps stand. I have Sun at 7, Mercury at 25, Fortuna at 22, Minerva at 11, Salacia at 18 and South Node at 29. I hope I am lucky to have my comment read and responded to. I would like to know how these factors affect my chart. I am a baby boomer in a second career and transforming the organization and not the one at the top. However, I am a major contributor and in a very hierarchical and male dominated environment. I have been in a leadership role for 15 years in the past. In addition to the career, I would appreciate your insight how this period affects through 2025. Thank you.
Thank you. You are a Sun Capricorn with factors at 7 through 29 so have really experienced Pluto transiting your Tenth House of career, unpaid work and academia since the start, 2008 and will find there is a big finish at 29, as Pluto in conjunction with your South Node brings back karma from 18-19 years ago. You owe, or are owed. There will be a takeover of your organisation by people, events or a second organisation (these may vary, but they will all take over) in February 2023, March 2023 when a game of musical chairs will take place and you need to find a chair to call your own. Read the paperwork if you sign anything, very carefully, as the machinations with the men involved will affect you for some time. June, July 2023 is the same and December that year into January 2024. These are year-end/new year times of promotion, departure, redundancy and sometimes even death. It can happen. Yet, January 2024 is the end. The rest of the 2020s will be astonishing to you as the old politics or power plays are history from that point. The trick with this transit is to own your power. Earn your power. Then empower others with it. That way, it works for you.
Thank you Jessica
“assuming your question was about 2022, will be able to take a lump sum this year, if you believe in it, and want it enough. You may already know about it.”
Yes you’ve assumed (2022) correctly.
Thank you so much for responding so quickly! I have been reading your article about Covid and the likelihood of another, more serious, mutation arriving in March 2023. March 2020 was a challenge for massage therapists like myself, BoJo classified us as massage parlours?! Whilst chiros, osteos and physios could still work, we can to downhands for 4 months. With mental health and stress through the roof, We have been busier than ever. I saw your info about air purifiers and wondered whether I should be looking at something along this line to introduce in readiness to reduce C-19 risk? I want to do everything I can to keep working and supporting. I am also one of those who will have Saturn in Pisces Opposing Pluto and Uranus in Virgo which looks to be a strong placement that will be playing out for many of us. Thanks again for all of your advice and wisdom and for the amazing website that is such a mine of information. Hope you and your Doggo are toasty.
I apologise for this late reply, actually, as you wrote on 13th June and here we are at the end of July. This discussion was very popular. The mutation of Covid may already be here – or it may be new – but the issue is rapid transmission that Pfizer, Moderna, AstreZeneca and the rest will not stop – beginning in March 2023. It is also possible that Monkeypox is the issue in March 2023. I am so sorry that your whole professional life was threatened by Covid. Yet people are anxious so demand is huge. Yes, get a HEPA and/or UV-C filter as soon as you can and beat the rush. I am unsure who sells these in Britain but in Australia, New Zealand and Asia, Philips sell various models. If you are going to experience the Saturn opposition to your Virgo factors, you absolutely need to order this now. It’s like any household appliance; it costs but it will change your life. Read the fine print on the promises from various manufacturers though and watch the YouTube commercials to get what you want.
I ask again, if you dont mind….where would you go?
Singapore, Duabi or New Zealand…
What if for some reason India is difficult to find work in …..
areas of ESG, carbon credits, and broadder sustainability…
do you think geological changes in terms of land and water displacement are up there?
I stopped flying in 2020 and have no intention of travelling until airlines and airports instal UV-C light and HEPA filters throughout, constantly, without the off switch. Airports also need to make Covid tests mandatory outside the airports at both ends. So no point in asking me where I’m going! If you are asking about India, massive transformation is coming as Narendra Modi loses his power March-June 2023, and completely from 2025. Women will step up. The birth rate will go down.
Hi Jessica! I think i have a stellium in capricorn. What does this all mean for me? Thank you!
I have answered you elsewhere. Thank you.
Hi Jessica! I think i have a stellium in capricorn. How would this event impact me. Thank you!
Yes, you have four+ factors in Capricorn in your Tenth House of career, social status and position. You will be astonished at how much changes, March to June 2023, when people or organisations which threatened your power, or tried to take it away, disappear or surrender. You have been going through this rather toxic cycle since 2008 when professional rivals, colleagues, employers and the rest – perhaps the faces in your business or industry as a whole – have resented any legitimately earned power that you have and tried to undermine you. Meanwhile you have just gone on, doing what you do. When Pluto retrogrades in Capricorn in June 2023 to January 2024 and September to November 2024, these people and corporations or industries will also go backwards. You get to watch. From 2025 you will never again have to put up with petty politics. All the power and control you earned through hard work since 2008 will be yours to claim and use wisely, as you have learned how to empower others with it. That’s the whole point.
I thought I might leave a message and may get lucky and get a reply. I struggle to understand my chart and struggle seems to be the word that encompasses my life! I have had a pretty rubbish love life and never come close to making that special connection, my last relationship ending in 2014 and there has been nothing since. I think because of that work, has always been a focus but I never seem to get anywhere. Sometimes I feel I make small progress and then it comes crashing down. I wonder whether I am banging my head against both a romantic and career brick wall and should just accept that success in both those areas is not does not feature in my chart. What do you think?
I’ve just returned to this thread, and apologise for the lateness of a reply; you wrote on 14th June. Love is classically Leo and Libra in the chart. Career is Virgo (the work side of it) and Capricorn (the political side of it). So let’s have a look. You are a Sun Cancer with Taurus-Scorpio-Virgo-Cancer stelliums. Actually, you can take or leave love, sex, relationships, marriage. The message is it’s the be-all and end-all but your chart suggests you are much more interested in and bound to do well in – finance. Also property, charity, business, objects, buying, selling and economies. That doesn’t mean you can’t end up with someone who takes your fancy, and in fact you will do that periodically all your life, but your focus was never going to be on marriage. I also suspect with that Scorpio pattern that when you ended the relationship you were aware of the realities of a house, apartment or mutual possessions (two being cheaper than one) but it still did not sit well with you. You will have an interesting choice about a partner and the material world/the assets ahead of you so see how you feel when the time comes. You are giving up rather too soon; your chart says otherwise. And so to work. You have a fantastic opportunity to feel so much happier about the role, the project, the course – by October. Then again from January to May 2023. Long-term from 2026 your career will be an escape from the real world. For more detailed, small-scale, current situations do use the Tarot. Just follow the steps. And as with all Cancer women, when in doubt, look to your mother for clues about patterns you have inherited.
Hi Jessica, thank you for your work and all your articles. You have been spot on with timings for me in various things, making a believer of my partner when I show your predictions and they work out against all the odds! Like many I have had a really tough few years. My sun and venus are at 29 and 28 Capricorn. I have been really worrying about next year when pluto goes over them (venus has once and I’ve felt it). Can you say what it might mean for me?
Yes, lovers and spouses are often sceptical about astrology until they are hammered with the evidence. Too much fun. You have absolutely inherited a Pluto transit here; Pluto going over 28 and 29 Capricorn slowly as he exits the sign. Venus and the Sun across this in your chart suggest quite public, complicated relationships with employers, clients, staff, professors, fellow classmates, teachers and colleagues. This is lifelong. Why have a flirtation or even more with someone who isn’t going to help you climb? It’s quite benign; the Duchess of Cambridge has a similar chart, so does Kate Moss. Don’t worry so much about the transiting Pluto conjunction; it has been set up for ages and you already know the score. The issue is what you define as success and status. Is it still worth it to you by March 2023? Or do you need another mountain to climb? As a rule of thumb, avoid obvious power-based relationships. You really don’t want to be in some game with people who try to push and pull you. Hang onto that thought in 2023, 2024, 2025 but by then you are seeing life very differently. This pattern sometimes happens with people who don’t work but marry up and have enough money to be a housewife/parent/househusband. That may be relevant too.
Hello Jessica, I log in regularly to read your informative blog posts and am all caught up as of today! Always appreciate your insights – especially as I continue to learn and understand astrology. I run my own small business in the creative field and am particular curious how these Capricorn / Pluto and Saturn retrograde cycles would come into play in the coming months ahead. I noted MC at 26 degrees Capricorn in my natal chart and Cancer factors at 28 degrees in Saturn and 26 degrees IC (which come closest to the 29 degrees I saw noted in your recent posts). Thank you!
Thank you, that’s very flattering. I apologise for the late reply; you wrote in June and it’s now July. Lots of questions. Okay, so your MC or Midheaven depends on a strictly accurate birth time. If your umbilical cord was cut at 10.50am then you have it. Pluto at 26 Capricorn is transiting over your MC: transiting Pluto in conjunction with the Midheaven. This is total career transformation until March 2023. So if you trust your birth time, prepare for the classic Pluto experience: the challenge to change. If you can do this you will be given the gift of empowerment and strength for many years into the future. An individual, organisation or ‘trend’ will take over, dominate, push you and pull you – and you have to push back. That is Pluto on the MC. You also have Saturn at 28 Cancer in your Fourth House of family, household, property, home town and homeland. That is huge, as Pluto opposes that from 28 Capricorn. You also have Uranus in Taurus in your solar chart, as a Sun Aquarius, going through your Fourth House. Same story told twice. Your IC is at 26 Cancer, again if you were born at that time. Essentially, until 2026 you go through a long but liberating cycle of releasing people, places or situations which prevented you from being truly free. It’s as well to try and stay flexible with your ideas about home and family on this cycle, which has a stop-start pattern in 2022, 2023, 2024, 2025, 2026. Uranus in Taurus transiting your solar Fourth House suggests the sudden lightning bolt – the world turning upside-down – which allows you to become independent; autonomous; excited about the space; exhilarated by the break with a confining past. This is intensely personal and likely involves your family or household. The Tarot can shed light for you. It reaches into ideas about your roots, history, heritage, culture, family tree, origins and sense of belonging to echoes of the past. As I said, it is lightning storms for some years into the future so loosening stuck or welded-on ideas about home is a decent first step and helps the loosening process.
Jessica I am so grateful for your articles. I remember when I discovered your site in 2017 after I got fired, chased by the recent memories of my parents death and with a cherry on top, breaking up of a toxic love relationship. Yes i got away with the best outcome. Anyway anxiety and stress is permanent battle. Your recent reply was a sunray in my life. I am waiting March 2023! Having recently changed profession, working from home and promoting into a different field was not expected to bring such a major calmness disruption. I cannot afford to leave my job and I have been on my own for many years now. I am wondering of what the years to come might bring. Fortuna is on the early degrees of Aquarius along with Jupiter and I have a huge stellium in Capricorn. I wish my anxiety will allow me to enjoy my good luck.
Thanks for your insight.
Tarot card : High priestess
Thank you. People often find astrology during or after a crisis. I credit astrology with saving me when I was 23 years old. I’m glad you drew The High Priestess. You will study very successfully with a brilliant tutor, professor, teacher or perhaps just a colleague who informally teaches you. She will be well-qualified but also wise, which is just as important. You will proceed towards an important website, thesis, book or academic journal – or a landmark qualification. This is lifelong knowledge exchange so you will go on learning just as you go on teaching others. You have a pattern in Gemini, the sign of the perpetual student and teacher, and will go backwards and forwards September 2022-March 2023 but then go into a brilliant new cycle from 2024 to 2025 (the biggest and best) and then change your life, and change other people’s lives, from 2026, for many years into the future. It will be exhilarating and liberating.
Hi Jessica, Thanks lot for your insightful Article on the topic. My question is about the effect of tr Pluto opposing my natal Jupiter in 8th 29 cancer (Jupiter rules 1st). It will also conjunct natal venus 2 Aquarius in 2024 and sextile natal mercury 2 Aries. Do you think the opposition will bring a life changing events? on legal matters? Thanks in advance for your insight. LF.
Well LF I don’t know what house system you use, but Pluto will oppose Jupiter from the Tenth House, in Capricorn, to your natal Fourth House, where he sits at 29 Cancer. Pluto then moves into a conjunction with Venus in Aquarius in your Eleventh House and will sextile your natal Mercury at 2 Aries in your First House. I need to spin your chart for an accurate prediction. You were born protected, and frequently blessed, with houses, land, apartments. That will be challenged in February 2023, March 2023 (when the situation ends) and in June, July 2023 (when it may return, or a different version of the same issue is here). You have to push back again in December 2023, which suggests the family is involved, because it’s Christmas. One more time in January 2024 and once and for all in September, October, November 2024. You are lucky this is an opposition to natal Jupiter which simply confronts your natural optimism, hope and positive thinking and ultimately can’t do very much to change your inherit basic luck with all things property-related. The family or household is obviously implicated. The conjunction to Venus is a complicated relationship within the group, involving a friend, which feels more like marriage or a family tie. It’s close and multi-layered. Whatever or whomever takes over that, requires self-control and willpower. It will mean you must be upfront, front-and-centre, online, and articulate who you are, and what you think. This looks like a very big deal to me. The Tarot, which is free on this website, can assist closer to the time.
Thank you for your response, I really appreciate it. After reading your response I reread your pervious blog about Natural House system. I’ve always wondered why my natal chart looks different on your site. Natural House might better explain why I have been hit so hard with finances.
Thank you again.
Thanks Chris. Yes, with the Taurus-Scorpio axis at 6 through 26 degrees, across your Second House of personal income and Eighth House of joint finance, you need to track Uranus, and of course the transiting nodes themselves, across that part of your chart. It requires some ducking and diving but you should benefit when Jupiter goes through Taurus May 2023 to May 2024.
Hi Jessica, thank you for your blog articles, they have given me a lot to think about. Personally I have my ASC at 00 Capricorn, Pluto at 6 the Tenth House, Ceres at 12 Taurus, also Moon at 9 Taurus. How do you see my career situation might be affected when Pluto leaves Capricorn? and what about my earnings ? I have a strange feeling that i’m going to loose my job and my financial stability …my relationship is also in downward spiral. Any insight would be most welcome. Thank you
Thank you. Correct, Capricorn is career and Taurus-Scorpio is money. So what’s going on? You are a Sun Gemini with a huge Taurus stellium in your Second House of income. In both charts I use for you the issue is money. Not your career. The toughest cycle for years ends in July 2023. The nodes leave Taurus-Scorpio. The pressure is off. You are given a break from years of challenges even earlier, from March 2023, when Pluto is out of Capricorn and your solar Eighth House. The Second House of personal income and Eighth House of joint finances are the entire story in both charts. Career? Best cycle in 12 years starts at Halloween and ends at Christmas, so do use it. Your relationship? It’s tied in with the money isn’t it, or the apartment or the house, or the possessions or car. This is an education in self-control giving you control and willpower empowering you. That is Pluto’s gift. You have until March 2023 to make it so. Money comes and goes, but empowerment is priceless and lifelong so reach for it if you can.
Thank you for your post about the final Pluto in Capricorn. I have Capricorn factors and I don’t know what more could happen in my life in 2023…
I am sorry for this late reply as you posted on 15th June but this post has attracted an avalanche of questions. Everyone is obviously more than ‘over’ Pluto in Capricorn. March 2023 ends the most intense career cycle in 248 years. It began for you in 2008 and since then you have lost jobs or projects; seen key people in your career resign or lose their positions; witnessed a massive transformation in your chosen field. You have also learned that if you use your willpower with work you can become very powerful. That is new. What more can come in 2023? Well, you’ll hear about a problematic person or organisation in your professional past getting the heave-ho, or stepping down – or the organisation may have to bow to you – that can happen too. A change in the balance of power, put it that way, given all that happened before.
I hope I am not too late with this reply, and that you have time to look at my chart. I have a very strong, dominating, selfish and controlling ex-partner in my life. The only reason there is any relationship left is due to the fact we own joint properties together. He is very much a Pluto force. I am hoping this/he just goes away! He has his Saturn return approaching next year and surely life karma has to catch up with him sooner or later? His date of birth is 16/04/1965. Can you see any relief for me, hopefully, sprinkled with some good luck, in the future? Thanks as always
You are not too late, but I am getting to these questions rather late, for which I apologise. You posted on 15th June. Your ex-partner will still be around, no doubt. You have a classic Scorpio story in your chart, in that property ties you together. You have the North Node in Scorpio and he is a past life connection. You may have had more than one past life together, possibly as husband and wife, possibly as family. The karma ends in July 2023. That is very good news. There is closure and soul settlement; spiritual completion. It will very likely be reflected in what happens with the property itself. The burden you feel with him will go in March 2023, so a few months earlier. For whatever reason March 2023 is important; you shift from an endless waiting game, (classically ‘putting up with’ which a Saturn transit in Aquarius always is for you) – and things alter. A new partner may appear on the horizon then. I have no idea who or what will happen, but it changes the game and removes the heavy feeling. Then from July, the property karma ends too. Different life.
I hope I am not too late with this comment, and you have time to look at my chart. I have a very manipulative, controlling, selfish and vindictive ex-partner who has been a dominant Pluto force in my life for far too long. We still own some properties together, hence the only reason we have any sort of relationship at all now. He is entering his Saturn return next (birth date 16/04/1965) and hoping life lessons during this cycle gives me some relief. Can you see any good luck coming to me and karma to him?
This is past life. You have the North Node and South Node on the Taurus-Scorpio axis of your chart, which rules divorce, property, marriage and money. So you have agreed to reincarnate together to try and resolve at least one incarnation, maybe more, where exactly the same thing happened. It feels worse now because you have your lunar node return (in Taurus and Scorpio). That ends next year. So does a lot of the strain. Until then it goes around in circles until you change, and he does. You can’t control him, but you can control yourself. Use the Oracle and Tarot on this website to find out how you can best do that. But – this does improve.
Hello Jessica and many thanks for the bountiful gift you give the world here through your website. Apologies for the late comments. I am a Capricorn sun, Cancer rising. I have been overwhelmed for, well, the past 30 years. Since 2017 things have been especially difficult, pained and strained and full of upheaval. My gaslighting, bullying now ex husband blew up my family and life with a highly public (in our town) affair and still vexes me with his continued deceit and dodging and by poisoning my daughters against me (while also insisting that the younger one live full time with me…which I generally prefer as I never wanted to not have my kids on a daily basis, but he is forever upsetting our equilibrium and generating conflict and chaos between us). My daughters have suffered as have my relationships with them (especially with my older one, who despite cutting ties with her father for a year and her proclamations of feminism, has been utterly devoted to “the man” once he wanted her back). My business partner died in 2019 and that set my career into free fall – and, along with the expensive divorce, my finances too. So many setbacks and frustrations large and tiny, even on what should be simple logistical tasks on a daily to-do list let alone on the more major rebuilding efforts. It hasn’t all been terrible. I have great friends who showed up for me in huge ways during the first and worst few years. Also, during this five-year storm I met and married my sweet and supportive husband and couldn’t ask for a better partnership or life with him. But the still ongoing stresses and past traumas from my former life pull and wear on us. I am exhausted and really need some relief. Also a new career (an area where I especially feel continually thwarted). Any insights – and hope too! – that you can provide from a review of my chart would be deeply appreciated. Thank you!!
Thank you. I am so sorry you married a bully, and an adulterer. You have daughters and it has become political. Your business partner also passed away and your income, but also the divorce, has been costly. Fortunately you have good friends and remarried a good person. So let’s see what your chart is doing. You are a Sun Capricorn with a Capricorn stellium at 22 to 29 degrees, so this last phase of Pluto in Capricorn at 22 to 29 degrees is transforming who you are, what you do, and where you are. This is not just your career, it is also your social position. So in many ways you’ve had the textbook experience of losing your rank as a married woman, then regaining it, with a second marriage. You’ve lost your old career with the sad passing of your business partner. You will be a more powerful person once this is over and it happens in stages. You get a huge break, financially, but also in terms of your profession, after March 2023. It is possible that you will acquire a new role or project from March next year, or be given an out, through a bank or via some other option. In any case you see the light at the end of the tunnel. You go back and forth between the old life and the new life until the mid 2020’s when you realise ‘that was then and this is now.’ You will in fact make or save a huge amount of money over the next 20 years, if you are prepared to put your shoulder to the wheel and use your willpower and self-control. This cycle can only happen once in every 248 years and you are having it now. The family situation will improve in slow stages. Capricorn is opposite Cancer and the Fourth House, and you have had Pluto opposing the Moon in Cancer, every 28 days, since 2008. Again, it lifts from March 2023 for a few months, for whatever reason, and you see the light at the end of the tunnel. Whenever I have readers talk about men manipulating women, I look for Vesta the asteroid. You have Vesta at 14 Sagittarius and she aspects a few factors in your chart, on or close to that degree. Vesta asks you to find solidarity and unity with your daughters and any other women in the situation and use your sense of humour and girl power to put your former partner back in his place. Do not compete with them. Do not give him special attention. He is attention seeking as you know. Side with them. Even if you don’t want to. Try it. Vesta is worth reading up on, if you have time.
I know you’ve thousands of queries so I’m reposting in the hope you see this second time around. Thanks.
Thanks for another detailed article Jessica. I knew about March 2023 but will note the other dates too. I’ve only got the Moon at 18 Capricorn but I’ve got 6 factors in Cancer from 7 to 28 degrees so I’ve been dealing with oppositions for a long time…and I know it’s not over yet. From separating from and then divorcing a controlling ex husband to an inexperienced boss who overlooked me and gave opportunities to his friends, I can’t wait for this cycle to be over. I’m a bit concerned about the Mercury/Pluto opposition around my birthday in July 2023 because I’ve 8 factors at 28 or 29 degrees including my Sun, nodes, Uranus, Psyche and Ceres. Do you have any advice about this time? I’ll try my best to keep my head down. Thanks!
I am picking up comments on this feature rather late, but better late than never. Thank you. You are a Cancer stellium woman who has gone through the difficulty of a broken home and household with your former husband. Pluto’s ongoing oppositions to everything in your Fourth House have destabilised you since 2008, with the usual ‘bump’ of Pluto’s arrival in the Fourth House (like a new tenant) to the ongoing tenancy now, in 2022. You will really notice the end of this in March 2023. Not feeling at home is a classic outcome of Pluto’s regular oppositions to the Moon transiting Cancer and the Fourth House and that’s every 28 or 29 days. So the new sensation you will have that it is possible to feel settled, grounded and secure will be very welcome. Pluto comes back a little but the worst is over from March and from the mid 2020’s it’s over forever. The oppositions still to come from Pluto will challenge you to change the way you ‘do’ your Cancer side. So you have patterns with the family, with your home, your town and country, which need to be reshaped. Pluto oppositions are usually really obvious. Thanks to astrology you can see the potential issue and avoid it, so it never becomes an issue at all. Yet, you will have to figure out a different way of operating with the house, apartment, the relatives, your own home town and homeland that is quite new. The Tarot can help you there. I’ve seen a ton of Pluto oppositions by transit in my time and the trick is to steer clear of what would be an obvious pitfall: an invitation to buy into a housing commune on the very day, for example, or some piece of family politics you can avoid!
I am very impressed with your deep insights and your commitment to providing support to so many of your readers. Thank you for all that you do. Personally, I am looking forward to the Pluto in Aquarius era. Pluto in Capricorn put me through the wringer emotionally both in terms of work and relationships. My Moon is in early Capricorn, and I began a marriage right as Pluto was entering Capricorn in 2008, only to start down the path to divorce a few years later when it transited my Moon. After the divorce mid-decade, I had an intense romantic relationship with a beautiful Aquarian Sun-Pisces Moon lady much older than me during my Pluto Square Pluto transit, although unfortunately it didn’t last beyond the end of the transit. Another love entered the picture in early 2020, but so did Uranus on my Taurus Sun, and it unravelled just as quickly as it began. Work has been downright nightmarish at times, and I have had several bosses that were insufferable, backstabbing tyrants. My job situation has also often felt unstable, and I have often wondered if it is a prompt from the universe to step out on my own. Despite everything, I feel optimistic on both fronts that things should be looking up for me soon with the outer planet sign changes. Most notably, I see that Pluto will be trining my Venus in early Gemini starting next March. I am curious however as to what you see for me in terms of relationships and work?
Thank you. I apologise for this late reply; comments today stand at 14,572 according to the website ticker. You will be pleased to see the back of Pluto in Capricorn. I am sorry you went through transiting Pluto in conjunction with your natal Moon; that is notoriously tough and you divorced. Your love life has been chequered. You have also had backstabbing bosses and wonder if you should work for yourself. You can see the Pluto trine to Venus and wonder if that’s enough. You have to spin your wheels karmically with your former wife and perhaps other former partners until July 2023. You can begin new relationships of course but closure is still required with those women. If you remain single until July 2023 it may be more simple for you. The spiritual scores will be settled from July and you can then get on with other things; you will be surprised at just how much marriage doesn’t matter after that. The career burdens will go in March 2023. Whatever weight you are carrying with your work will be off your shoulders in March and and a new role, project or position will be there by June. Alone or with others you will be asked to take on a long-term challenge of many years which involves accepting the power you are being given and understanding how to empower others with it. If you misuse the power you will regret it. Pluto can be quite relentless like that and he is transiting your chart in all kinds of ways, ongoing. On some level you probably want the power to transform others, in a personal and direct way, and to feel real power: it is going to be offered to you, but handle with care. You could easily share a home with a woman who feels like family and may bring her family with her, once Jupiter goes into Leo, which picks up your solar Fourth House of houses and apartments – and your natal Fifth House of courtship and heirs. That’s a fair way off but it’s a good transit, about five years away.
Hi Jess – I have really felt plutos presence in my career since 2008. So many ups and downs, opportunities, confusion, dramas, false starts etc. It’s been exhausting but also enlightening. I have Saturn, Neptune and Uranus all in Capricorn and but in earlier degrees and I’m hoping this means that Pluto is pretty much done with me. I do have Minerva at 28 degrees in Capricorn. From what I understand there is a piece of wisdom coming my way near 23/7/2023? Can you shed further light on this I’m still getting my head around how the asteroids fit together. Thank you as always
You have transiting Pluto at 28 Capricorn going over natal Minerva at 28 Capricorn in your Tenth House of career, unpaid work and academia. By nature you are a wise old owl, in your chosen field. You are the woman who has the answers. Minerva is usually shown with an owl. She was the goddess to whom others went to, for clever, even cunning solutions. Pluto going over that in astrology suggests the most powerful person or organisation is about to transform how you operate. So this may be a different project, role, job or personnel – now through March 2023. Pushing back is important. It will take self control and willpower but also empower you. That is Pluto’s gift; he challenges you in the most intense way, and can be quite relentless, but if you discipline yourself, you end up being far stronger and feeling much stronger too. Owls may appear as omens; they often do. Minerva also rules olive oil, olives and olive trees.
Hi Jessica, I may be a little late to this party but thank you for the end of Pluto post – can’t wait to see the back of it. It has certainly been a very difficult time for me, beginning with a traumatic work period which left me with PTSD, affecting family, career, health…so there’s not much left in the tank if Pluto has any surprises for me in Aquarius! I don’t have anything in Aquarius although there is Juno in Leo to oppose…
There are many readers with a stellium in Virgo in the Sixth House of workload and health, lifestyle and wellbeing, who have found Pluto in Capricorn very tough to deal with. You have Post Traumatic Stress and an empty tank. I am sorry about that, as it shows a strongly Virgo person who has been through too much. The good news is strongly Virgo people are also the best to self-heal. In fact it’s part of the pathway of Virgo; one goes through the challenges to find the solutions. The problem with Pluto in Capricorn has been the dog-eat-dog and top-dog dominance, in just about every profession. Pluto can be thoroughly unpleasant to deal with. The challenge is to push back and try to beat him/her/that and it can be very hard going with the Mind, Body and Spirit. You will notice it when Pluto leaves. March-June 2023 will be quite remarkable and you will hear about one of the problem people exiting stage left. Ongoing, you really need to swing back to your Virgo side and dig into it. Use the library on here and your Tarot/Oracles to figure out how it has been manifesting for you and how to use it, to get what you want. It is essential that you find a role where you are happy to serve, to do your duty and to perfect the tiny details of a talent or skill you are proud of. All else comes from that, no matter if you are paid for it or not.
Hello, I am new to reading your material. I resonate with it very much. I am a bit concerned about my future, and I am a positive thinking person, however I’m not sure what to make of what is to come for me. My Venus is 28 Cap which has been experiencing Pluto for some time now while it squares my Asc at 27 Libra (Koch houses), and when it leaves Cap, it goes to my nadir at 0 Aquarius. I know you use the natural wheel. So, knowing that, I’m not sure what to make of it other than my home and associations are affected, as if they haven’t been already. 🙂
And the upcoming full moon in Virgo has me a bit concerned. My Moon is 16 Virgo and Sun 17 Sag. I appreciate your writings and it has inspired me to focus more, a lot more, on my health and home. It has been time for me to purge, which I have been doing since Pluto touched my Venus, and I feel an urgency after looking toward the future. In addition to my Mars/NN at 13/14 Aquarius. Looks like to me that big changes are approaching even more than they have been. I thank you for your insight, it is very valuable. Your writing is inspiring. Again, thank you.
Okay, so I don’t use Koch, I use the Natural House system and there’s no chart here for me to read. Venus at 28 Capricorn is in your Tenth House of career, unpaid work and academia. You have Pluto at 28 Capricorn going over this, backwards and forwards, for the first time in 248 years. The rather complex relationships you have with employers, staff, colleagues, professors, classmates, fellow volunteers – are set for total transformation. You don’t mention work at all but assuming you are not a full-time housewife or househusband, this is about career. Powerful people and organisations take over, and you must figure out a way to make the relationships work with the people politics involved. The Tarot can be useful for that and it is free on this website, thanks to the generosity of the late Stuart Kaplan and U.S. Games Systems.
Hello Jessica. Thank you for your insights and for the time that you take to reply to comments and questions. I am a Sun Leo with Retrograde Saturn, Jupiter, and Salicia in Capricorn. I have been “stuck” with exhausting challenges in my work life since 2008, and your blog on the end of Pluto in Capricorn gives me some hope that I may find some relief soon. Also just renovated my house (also exhausting, but totally worth it, despite the supply chain).
You are a Sun Leo with Jupiter at 28 Capricorn, and your entire career is going to transform in the most fantastic way by March 2023. Pluto will move to 28 Capricorn and powerful people or organisations with great influence and clout will offer you an opportunity to expand your success, go higher and further than ever before. Lots of things happen at once by March. I think December 2022, January 2023 is the turning point and once you are into April 2023 you realise ‘that was then, this is now.’ This may be a new role, promotion, big hit, dramatic lifestyle change or similar. Pluto in Capricorn has been relentless since 2008 but you are about to enjoy your natal Jupiter’s rewards: tremendous growth is coming.
I’m unsure where to park this question but does it look as if my love life is doomed?
I’m currently looking at splitting under one roof as I can’t yet afford to move out. We’re already leading separate lives pretty much.
I have no idea what love really looks like (I’ve never truly been in it but r experienced a healthy romantic relationship), if and when might things change, will I meet Mr Right?
The karma with your partner ends in July 2023 and you may have broken up and moved out by then or agreed to lead separate lives in one home. That is the end of the sustained drama. There is no Mr. Right. There are a number of men you can have different sorts of relationships with. After July 2023 marriage will never again be the be-all and end-all for you. I have said this in varying ways, I guess, a number of times. You won’t ask any more after July 2023.
I pray for your greatest blessing.
Texas just said Biden election ILLEGITIMATE :
How can that be ????
United, we Stand. Divided, We Fall. These GOP are KILLING America.
Texas just said that on Mercury Retrograde. Trump Russia rolls on. It will stop rolling next March 2023. Watch.
Thank you so much.
Love you with all my heart.
I am always fascinated by your global predictions.
Being more versed in natal astrology, I wonder if you can look at my natural chart and relay any personal advice/prediction.
I felt forced into retirement 4 years ago (within a year of a solar eclipse on my natal Midheaven). I feel a loss of identity & purpose without my job and my fears about the pandemic have kept me from trying to find a new one. I feel like my time is over & I am fading away. Although Capricorn and Saturn rule my natal 7th, I see it lands in my tenth in the natural house system. I have been nervous for a few years as I have been aware that Pluto in Capricorn was in opposition to my ASC & natal Uranus & Mars…and then marched on to my natal 8th. I prefer it in my natural 10th! But it also will come into an opposition with my natal Sun as it enters Aquarius.
Thank you. Your time isn’t over and you are not fading away. You also use a different house system to me, so I need to spin your chart and use the Natural House System instead. If you retired four years ago, 2018, Salacia at 1 Capricorn and the DC or Descendant at 3 Capricorn in your Tenth House of career were your issues. Saturn was at 1 Capricorn and 3 Capricorn and so you had the notoriously heavy, difficult, slow, stuck, sad and rather serious transit of Saturn as you were forced to go. You are also a Sun Leo so in your solar chart you had Uranus (the need for radical change) go into your solar Tenth House in the same year. Double whammy. You will be thrilled with the opportunities for success, achievement and a new position in life in 2023 as Pluto leaves your solar Sixth House for a few months, giving you light at the end of the tunnel about the pandemic and how to change your lifestyle to deal with it. Later on Jupiter goes into your solar Tenth House in Taurus and will make stunning trines to your Capricorn factors in the natal Tenth House (are you following? I hope so) and thus the offer will come soon after May 2023. It may be new qualifications, an online gig with Zoom, a part-time role which has a flattering title and so on. The best is yet to come. Your issue is you have not staged your own revolution, and should have done, but it’s not too late.
I am a new member and just wanted to pop in to say thank you; your insights are fabulous. I’m still learning by reading your blog posts on how to figure out the meanings of my natal chart. I’ll get there eventually. Any insights on were to start/focus? Thank you again! ~Rachel
Thank you Rachel. The best way into your natal chart is to scan it and look for slices of the cake which are most decorated. Where do you have four, five, six or more items on one slice? In one zodiac sign? That is a stellium and your personality and destiny are dominated by that. So start there. If you were strongly Cancerian, for example, and had five factors in Cancer, in your Fourth House of home town, homeland, house, garden, history, culture and heritage – it would be a massive part of your personality and thus your choices in life. Your library here can tell you the rest.
Dear Precious Jessica.
The Tyrant of TikTok.
TikTok = Dangerous for the West more than collecting your personal Data.
TikTok = a Chinese Company.
China can secretly push for DIVISIVE CONTENT.
China can secretly push for DISINFORMATION CAMPAIGN.
Such as now, TikTok is full of videos supporting RUSSIA propaganda “Military Operation”
But young generation is addicted to it.
Unfortunately Russian propaganda is across the web, everywhere. The web was given free to the world by the British and Putin took it and ran with it – cheap or free to use from his point of view, I suppose. Thank you for this link, I will take a look later.
I’m sorry this is off the topic. But I feel that it’s an important issue.
Dominion takes Rupert to court.
I sure pray for Rupert to lose because Rupert has done so much damage to the world (UK, Australia, US…).
Thank you so much
Thank you Robin. That’s interesting about Rupert Murdoch. I looked at his chart a long time ago and the corporation was hacked on one of the predicted times. Nobody paid any attention to that but the astrology said it was important. I’ll go and look at this story, cheers.
The Capricorn in Pluto transit has had me in a stranglehold with my career, truly since 2008.
My Moon at 25 deg 16’12”
Jupiter 06 deg20’52”R
IC 25 deg 10’58”
I’m so worn out by my previous career path, and I’m slowly changing – looking to go into another field, but that’s still in its early stages with my law degree. And for a while until it takes hold, the intention is to transition into a coaching field, I have the qualifications and the experience but not the opportunities. Hopefully this will steadily pick up.
Do these factors speak to this in any way?
You are a Sun Cancer woman with the Moon exactly in conjunction with the IC or Immum Coeli at 25 Capricorn in your Tenth House of success, ambition, social climbing, status, position and mission. The law degree is part of that. You want to coach. You have actually done all the transformation. Pluto is off that degree and will not return. So the transformation which has worn you out (very common with Pluto) is behind you. You will have sensational opportunities and answers, perhaps in coaching, maybe in other fields, until October. They return January-May.
Thank you for the fascinating insight on world-wide developments. I am especially interested in those involving the USA and Russia.
On a more personal note, I have Fortuna at 26 degrees Capricorn and Pluto has gone back and forth over the degree. I have resigned from a number of jobs due to awful bosses even though I have excelled in those posts. If it is not jealousy, it’s about ethics and integrity. I place much value in the latter two. But why am I always the one that loses out? I could stay but I would be unhappy. Left my last job in November last year and still unemployed. On the upside, just got awarded my Masters from a top university. Any advice now that Pluto is on its way back to 26 degrees Capricorn?
I am sorry you are having such a rough Pluto transit over Fortuna in your Tenth House of career. Congratulations on your MA, Shane. This is all part of the same story. The push back against Plutocrats and Pluto himself (being dominated, taken over) and the subsequent empowerment that comes from pushing back. You have Jupiter in Gemini in the Third House at 26 degrees too. So that’s why, weirdly, this is working for you. Jupiter is good fortune, abundant gain, fantastic solutions. In Gemini he has helped you since school. A brother or sister or cousin may been the spur, for whatever reason. Later on you have your Jupiter Return in Gemini in 2024-2025 and will find your MA and other experience jet propels you into a stunning new role, big hit, promotion and so on. Pluto is the grit in the oyster that makes the pearl. Every time your Fortuna is hit by Pluto, Jupiter picks up. Have a look at Jupiter in Gemini in the Third House because it’s also triggered in the late 2020s and early 2030s. Long-term you will be writing or broadcasting globally and very successfully, using technology not invented yet.
Hi Jessica, Thank you for such an insightful blog. Have read through many comments, I’m amazed at what you answer – I’m exhausted reading the replies; amazing.
Unsure if this is appropriate here but I just read my daily horoscope (Scorpio) alongside my ‘friends’ (Taurus) .. you tell him to get out of the situation if you’re with a Scorpio with the south node ; that’s me . Does that mean we shouldn’t be together?
We meet about 30 years ago, parted for many years until around 2012 when we crossed paths. Since then there have been dalliances but just recently came together with thoughts that we might continue together. Are we ill fated?
You are having a karmic connection with a Sun Taurus (your friend) and you are a Sun Scorpio. You are not ill-fated. The lunar nodes transiting Taurus and Scorpio and your Seventh House of sexual relationships are not bad, and not good. They just repeat karma. Getting out of a loop or stuck circuit with someone is all about awareness. You have the North Node (karma goes back in 18-19 year loops) in your Seventh House of partnership; Taurus has the South Node in Scorpio, also moving through his Seventh House. Same story told from two different angles. The karma ends on July 18th 2023. Until then, have a look at the patterns you have with other people, as well as each other, going back in those loops. Have a look at the North Node and South Node on Search and in your library, here.
I have been following your Pluto in Capricorn writings quite closely. They are very helpful and of great interest to me!
I have been wondering why I am being OBSESSIVE about a new partnership potential these last few days. Its a friendship that has turned to more, but he lives far away, and the energy I have been feeling in the last few days in particular is not how I usually am at all. I then realized, Pluto is now opposite my ascendant – and opposite the house where Chiron is located for me. Im highly Libran, and needless to say relationships have been a large focus of my life – mostly on the painful side. I am wondering – will I be dealing with this energy off an on until Pluto leaves Capricorn completely? Or is it just while its so tight to my ascendant as it is in the last few days.
I am usually quite relaxed, I have been single for the last 8 years, focused largely on building up my life…..and now suddenly all my gross, needy, codependent patterns I thought I squished are coming up in relation to a man who is not exactly monogamous, lives 4000 km away, who I barely noticed before he visited me a month ago. I am set to visit him in July but am feeling wary of this energy as I know what im feeling in relation to him is not really about him – its about me and healing my stuff!
Any insight would be so much appreciated. I feel like Ive been going crazy the last few days……flipping between rational and pure emotion and trying to figure it all out (Im usually quite rational so this is extra uncomfortable for me…..Gods help me!)
Pluto is about obsession it’s true. In Capricorn he is about career obsession. An obsession with making it, or hanging on to success. So, nothing to do with love and sex. I often find obsessed readers repeat questions or try different comment threads to get an answer, so I understand the raging need for answers. It is usually Cupido or Venus with romantic passion, unless you were born with Pluto in Libra in the Seventh House. You are not logged in so I can’t check that. The Tarot is free on this website. It was designed by Pamela Colman Smith, a member of the Golden Dawn, a society where passionate, nay obsessive relationships were part of life. So the cards are very good for that. I recommend you use them and follow the steps.
Thank you again for your insights and easy to understand predictions. I wrote a comment earlier but I think it didnt go through – my apologies if it did! I am going to attempt to write it again….
I am aware Pluto is opposite my ASC at the moment, and I am wondering if that has anything to do with a recent OBSESSION with a new love interest? It is highly unlike me. This is also a very improbable scenario as he lives across the continent from me, and we are both very highly independent souls. I have been single for 8 years since a traumatic divorce (my second in 12 years), and this man – who was my friend first for 5 years – recently visited me where I live and completely destroyed my “peace” (which was more of a checked out slumber…..). In the last few days I have witnessed every needy, codependent, gross aspect of myself regarding bonding with others that I thought was well out of my system. I am aware what I am feeling as an intense Love/Hate towards him is not really about him – its feeling very much about me taking a look at an ongoing pattern along with some visceral remembering of how I used to Love – of how I knew how to Love at one point before divorces upended my life. Im very much noticing a pattern of escapism and self protection in my behaviour of going after unattainable people – but this also feels different. I am wondering – when Pluto leaves Capricorn, will this tendency also be over for me? I am having a hard time discerning if this is a real connection or just a mirror for my own junk. He is June 9. 1973, 1:50 am – New York – and I think he is also going through an intense time of endings – including his ex wife getting remarried and his most recent girlfriend moving out (Im not sure if she has really moved on though….). It feels as though we are tightly bonded, yet perhaps unable to meet in a functional way. I am set to go visit him in New York in a month and am now reconsidering as the anxiety/upset to the rest of my life I have felt since he left here just a month ago is enough to send me running yet this doesnt feel right either. Im a mass ball of confusion and big emotions right now, while also trying to be rational about it all. Im highly libran so needless to say a focus on relationship is a wonderful distraction from the day to day any day. Is this something I am likely to struggle with until Pluto is really done with capricorn in 2024? Thank you for any insight you can provide – I really appreciate your responses!
I am sorry this reply has taken such a long time as I have been snowed under with questions. By now you will have decided to visit your New York Gemini (or not) and figured out more of the story. Sexual and/or romantic obsession is always Leo, Libra or Scorpio and it’s not always Pluto. It can be Cupido or Venus, just as much. You are a Sun Libra with a whopping Libra stellium in the Seventh House of marriage and divorce (and have done both) and you also have Leo and Scorpio signatures. Good luck trying to avoid men in favour of a quiet life! You are actually in a terrific cycle for new sexual partnerships, ending near Halloween then resuming in January, until May 2023. So he may be the right choice. If not there is another choice waiting. You don’t say if either of you have children or want them. (Or can have them). That is crucial. Try to figure out the parenthood questions as deeply and carefully as you can, ongoing. You may need to read around the subject, do a bit of digging around with your own soul, have a few Tarot and Oracle journal readings to really sort it out. In any case, a burden lifts in March 2023, as I said, and in its place you get a very long new cycle, when children, or other people’s children, transform just about everything in your world. Without getting too far ahead of ourselves here, let’s just say this Gemini is important in terms of whom he bounces you to next, or what you alter, in order to be with him. If not him, then another. But you were meant to be married again and will be. The really big cycle for that is 2026 and beyond, but that’s another story. You can always use the Tarot to help with intense romantic situations in a hurry. It’s very good.
It has been a revelation for me personally when I came to learn about you and read your articles, almost 9 years ago.
Thank you indeed for your perseverance and thoughtfulness
You are more than just an astrologer, in my opinion. And I really appreciate your style and commitment.
Please, if possible, find some seconds in studying the chart of my beautiful little country, Albania. We have suffered a lot and still are stuck in a limbo without a clear light at the end of the tunnel.
The war in Ukraine has particularly touched us as a society. Our prayers are with them, constantly. But the politicians here are terrible and without good will.
I love my country, because to me the Mediterranean is the best and most beautiful part of world.
Do you see our future in EU? I STRONGLY HOPE SO.
Our story, our past, our nature as population is heavily oriented toward the west, but the obscure and absurd plays of the politics are increasingly trying to obstacle it.
Thank you in advance for all your efforts.
Wishing you a lot of great good things and many compliments for your climate campaign on Fridays.
Something we share with you as a family
Thank you, I am flattered that you have been visiting the website for nine years or so. Albania has a couple of astrological charts; one set for 28th November 1912 at 10.42am GMT in Valona; the second set for 11th January 1946 at 12.00 CET in Tirana. She has Gemini factors in both charts. Gemini rules the neighbours, so this is Greece, for example, and the European Union members. You are waiting for Jupiter (expansion) into Gemini (the neighbourhood) from May 26th 2024 until June 9th 2025. That is the first step towards huge change involving those ‘next door’ if you like, with the full revolution from July 8th 2025 until May 22nd 2033. As this will sweep every country with Gemini factors, one can only assume the new EU will be born at this time. Jupiter suggests more countries join, and existing problems are removed. Jupiter also suggests different kinds of transport linking the region together; we know about electric vehicles but this is something else. It may be that the train network is relaunched. Uranus, a little later is about independence, upheaval and quite radical change which allows countries to break free, and be free – or find freedom through something new. This will have a huge impact on Albania. Your media and online media will also change quite radically from that point and freedom of speech/freedom of the press will help you with so many of the political stuckness of 2022. From the mid 2020’s that is just a memory. Albania has her Uranus Return, which is historic, and whomever you call brothers and sisters, as nations, will be part of the new country ahead. Cheers.
Will you be doing a chart on the Dobson Decision that over turned Ore in the USA? Thank You
Yes, I will have a look at this a little later. Thank you.
Dear Jessica, please help me. I am at the very end of my strength, patience and wits with my marriage. I have waited, tried a lot of things, and hoped it would be better, just be a little more patient, but now almost every day I am thinking about to give it an end. I have received many advice during the years, but none was very helpful at the core of the matter. Please advise something, I do not want to list his faults, but many from our family and among our friends wondering what the hell happened to him, and how can I live like this. I am talking about very hectic rollercoster between emotions, emotional distance, and verbal backslash, anger issues. I am very tired, sad and I can hardly believe that we reached this point. Am I in the wrong, or really do I should do something differently?
I am sorry that your marriage is on the rocks. The best way to help yourself, is to use the Tarot on my website. Follow the steps. It is free to use. Pamela Colman Smith and Arthur E. Waite created a Tarot deck in 1909 that has become more popular with every generation ever since – because it works. The cards specifically address a bad marriage. I can’t see a chart here, so you are either not logged in, or not a Premium Member. In any case, the Tarot can help you.
Hi Jessica, Love your blog and how you teach us. Thank you. This is my first time commenting. I have Saturn (Retrograde) in 29.48.55 Capricorn in the 6th house, and Taurus Sun at 25.33 degrees in the 10th house. Yes – have been affected. Have been working on health for a while, and have been in a job where I am very frustrated for about 4 years. Dad had Saturn at 28 Capricorn and he passed away a year ago. We are sorting his Estate. With Transiting nodes in Taurus – I know I am asked to make some career changes I think. Not sure what to make of all this.
Thank you. I am sorry for this late reply, but I tend to get there eventually. Your dad passed away and now you have the burden of sorting out his estate, as well as dealing with the loss of your father. Going over both your natal and solar chart together, you are a Sun Taurus with oppositions at 9 and 25 degrees of Scorpio and Taurus, right across the Eighth House of legacies and Second House of salary. These are being triggered as the North Node and South Node move past 25 and ultimately 9 degrees of the signs, and Uranus is also making his way through Taurus. All this is financial on paper but in your soul it is about your life budget. What you will or will not sell your soul for. Who or what goes beyond money for you. Also – where you are prepared to cut a deal with yourself and other people. So this brings in the family. And it brings in your job which you’ve disliked for four years. That’s too long. Okay, take a deep breath because you will lose the career burden in March 2023. The endless tests of your patience and staying power disappear. You could easily switch jobs March-June 2023 or take up a new project, or find existing staff are reshuffled. You could also return to study or unpaid work. It really depends on how you add up your own financial needs. The family legacy situation brings final closure in July 2023 in terms of how people feel, and what is paid out spiritually. Your father is only a thought and a candle away as you probably know and you can always ask for a bit of elbow guidance if you need it. Long-term your career shows you have the potential to become quite powerful if you have the willpower to take on the challenges. So that’s not your old job. Your role, long-term, will involve rather a lot of influence, clout and control so handle with care; rather powerful people will also cross your path.
When you say factors in Capricorn, does that include the MC?
My MC is 21 degrees (21/45) in Capricorn. I’m not sure if I will be affected and, if so, how. Thank you.
Yes, the MC or Midheaven is a Capricorn factor, like a planet, and describes your highest achievement in your lifetime, which is to climb to the top of the social or work ladder. It depends on an accurate birth time. If you have it, then Pluto at 21 Capricorn has already happened. You lost your job or were promoted; it would have been extreme; you may have resigned. It’s on that level (and it’s over).
Oh, I forgot to log in on my mobile. Thank you Jessica, I hope now you can see my chart, I am a premium member. Please take a quick look at it.
You are a Sun Virgo with a Virgo stellium in your Sixth House, so the most important thing I can tell you is about workload, health, lifestyle, mental health, wellbeing, duty and service. Housework and chores, too. It all goes together. The burden, waiting game and test of strength ends in March 2023. From that point forward you realise that unpaid work, paid work and/or study will be completely different. It takes time for it to pan out, but by the mid 2020’s you will be in Super Virgo mode and with transiting Pluto in your solar Sixth House, but also useful aspects to natal Virgo factors in your other Sixth House, you’ve reshaped the way you function. You will be remodelling the way you perfect your skills and abilities, either in the current role or a new one. You will have utterly changed the way you eat, drink, exercise, sleep, regard a doctor/healer and so on. Have a look at the Garden Oracle to confirm.
What a fantastic article 🙂
I have Capricorn in Ceres at 8, Panacea at 4, Salacia at 27 & Psyche at 9. My husband has cap at Sun 9, Venus 22, Salacia 23 & Cupido 29. We are both unhappy in our current jobs & wanting to move on, my husband especially, as his workplace has highly toxic management and he feels he is walking on eggshells all the time. He has been so stressed for the last couple of years and its taken quite a toll on him. Can you see things improving for him?
Thank you Karen. You and your husband both have Capricorn late-degree factors; yours at 27 and his at 29. Pluto is going over those degrees for the first time in 248 years so if it feels really relentless and unusually hard, that’s because it is. Unfortunately toxic management is a sure sign. Pluto rules plutocrats. If neither of you can take the drastic step of resigning, or some other way of ditching/ending the jobs or the people, then your alternative is to use willpower. Willpower and self-control and tremendous summoning of self-discipline are proven to work on Pluto transits. You will get a very long break (both of you) from this current situation after March 2023, and that will help you. It may be that your husband’s bosses are sacked, or resign, or get Long Covid and so on. That is not unusual either on a Pluto transit; it tends to remove plutocrats once they have had their power. So March is the light at the end of the tunnel. The way out of the tunnel to the mid 2020’s is to constantly turn back to your will of iron. It will actually be the making of you; the irony of Pluto transits is that even though they are difficult at the time, later on they empower us; they give us influence, clout and tremendous strength. That never goes away.
Everything I read about Capricorn MC has to do with ambition. I have zero ambition. I just want to heal from abuse and illness. The only thing I can relate to is that Pluto may have given me a push to find more and more alternative therapies, and push me to keep going on my healing journey. I suppose that, having a Virgo sun, going all out to heal body and mind could be a Capricorn MC thing. Other than that, I don’t relate to ambition as it is usually seen.
Your birth time is wrong. You have 22.20 as your given time, but if your MC is wrong, then your clock time of birth, as related to your birth place and date, is out. It’s not unusual; mothers giving birth tend not to be accurate with times, or the midwife can get it wrong, and so on. If you want to heal from abuse and illness, yes, go to Virgo and the Sixth House. Psyche at 28 Virgo is your whole answer. Psyche in the chart is a symbol of immortality after tests and trials. Psyche had one endurance test after another at the hands of Venus. Have a look at paintings of Psyche. She is usually shown long-suffering. She is represented by the butterfly, as the chrysalis develops wings and flies. Psyche herself is usually shown with wings (Cupid and Psyche being the famous sculpture). So how do you fly? Use any trines to Psyche, so any transits at 28 Taurus and Capricorn, to transform. You have one for the first time in 248 years with Pluto at 28 Capricorn, and will have another rare trine from Jupiter at 28 Taurus in the year 2024. What you discover or do for yourself will help you transform. Virgo rules mental and physical health. You are about to be reborn; it will take 2-3 years but it will be powerful and permanent.
Now that supreme court in US overturned abortion rights. And that means any fertilized egg is a human in some states, like Missouri, so you cannot use an IUD, that would be murder. Yes, in Missouri this is true. Which changes IVF procedures since they discard some embryos. Not allowed. And the opinion of one judge wants to do away with contraceptives and same sex marriage. So you have this crazy conservative wave. You said a blue wave but does this also cause a revolution with red states and blue states?
Yes, the red and blue states will separate from each other in slow stages. The really big year is 2026 when Uranus (the revolution) goes into Gemini (neighbours, transport, travel) and America becomes a different place, with some states moving towards Canada in terms of agreements and contracts, and other states essentially breaking away, like Texas. Putin’s plan all along was to use Midterms to divide America because he is a very old-fashioned Russian who believes in divide and conquer. That’s why he installed Trump and that’s why Trump installed anti-abortion authorities. Putin is a silly old duffer, as is Trump, and both these doddery old men have failed to understand that America is greater than that. So is Canada. You have to read the two nations together after 2026 to understand that trying to separate people has actually united them in a brand new way.
Thank you so much!
I actually have a job interview Wednesday, so hopefully new beginnings for me.
This is rather a late reply, for which I apologise, but I hope you were happy with the interview. You will make or save money from Halloween until Christmas, so enjoy that change.
Just signed the employment contract with my new employer and will be leaving my 14-year old job (also my first job since graduation) by the end of July. I’m quite positive about this job as it gives me good pay and more opportunities.
However, based on the my understanding, changes should start by the end 2022 and early 2023. I have Mars (25°) and Jupiter (10°) in Capricorn, would you tell if this new job is part of the change or I would need to change job in 2023?
Thank you Jessica!
By now you will be on your way to the new job, which is dramatic, given you were in the old position for 14 years. You are a Sun Scorpio with Mars at 25 Capricorn so right on time. Pluto has been moving over 25 Capricorn so this is a 248-year cycle landing in your Tenth House of career. You are also lucky to have Jupiter in Capricorn, so will always have a soft landing, and at best, reach the heights. I’m not surprised the job pays well and offers more. The changes I am talking about do involve your new work place. You are likely to find reshuffles, changes in the balance of power and people politics in December 2022, January 2023. That doesn’t mean you change again unless you want to. It’s just the nature of the organisation. You are in a terrific cycle for work and lifestyle improvements which runs until October, then again from January to May 2023. It’s not just about the job, it’s about your health and wellbeing too.
How will the end of Pluto in Capricorn affect the U.S. Supreme Court? Not only has it overturned Roe v Wade but its rulings regarding the carrying of firearms in the public will not help to reduce the number of homicides.
America divides into red and blue states from May 26th 2024 and becomes a patchwork of radically different neighbours with different laws and borders. In fact America gains more states, or some states (the ‘or’ is important) increase in political or geographical range. That’s Jupiter in Gemini. The revolution is from April 26th 2026 until May 22nd 2033, when the old flag is changed and the states agree to differ in a radical new way, setting up a far more liberated and free ‘neighbourhood’ within the nation. The US Supreme Court will not transform or collapse for many years; other changes will have more impact, legally and politically. This is quite obviously about the constitution.
I love your blog- and am so grateful that you are helping us navigate this difficult period in time. I love that you have mentioned Ceres as significant – I’ve been reading about Ceres quite a lot as I have it right on my midheaven 5 deg Aquarius, M/C is 7 deg Aquarius. I have Sun and Jupiter conjunct (21 deg/ 24 deg) in Aquarius in the 10th house. I have had quite a nice run to help non profits working on sustainable agriculture- which I always felt Ceres had a role in. But this Pluto Cap transit has been in my 9th house and aspecting my natal Venus in Cap @ 25 degrees, which this back and forth motion has been deeply personal (I also have my part of fortune closely aspected at 20 Cap), causing unexpected uncovering in my personal relationships. Not easy work. When it moves into Aquarius, will that mean the relationship issues will be done? Also experiencing my Chiron return in Aires in 11th house. So I suspect something healing is taking place, even thought it feels very challenging at the moment.
On a collective level, I am hoping the shift into Aquarius will really shake loose this dark political atmosphere, and put an end to the plutocracy. As an Aquarius, I feel there are great positive humanitarian attributes to the sign, but I see quite a lot of astrologers look at less favorably the period of Pluto in Aquarius. In these last degrees of Capricorn, it feels like an upswing in power by the ultra conservative far-right movement in the US taking us back decades of progress on women’s reproductive rights, EPA regulatory roll backs, and further pushing for religious influence in our laws, educational institutions and states, I fear the move into Aquarius will keep people detached, distracted, which seems to be how they got control in the first place.
Thank you. If you are a Sun Aquarius I am not sure why you think Pluto is transiting your Ninth House. It’s in your Twelfth House in your solar chart and Tenth House natally. It sounds as if you are using an old house system. Pluto in Aquarius in transition from Capricorn is not about distraction, though it is about detachment. You can’t afford to be intimate or political with people when you all have to share the same distanced space. The old Roman idea of the baths, actually supplied by a water-bearer (the Aquarius of the local area) necessitated a hands-off atmosphere; people gathered together to unite and achieve what they could not have alone (a swimming pool, sometimes more than that) but the rules of the game meant no touching. This is the clearest indicator yet that COVID-19 remains, quite literally, in the atmosphere after 2023 and for many years into the future. It also means the planet unites or it collapses. So that’s Aquarius, your sign.
Really enlightening article – which sounds like the end of America as we know it (which, if I’m honest, feels very much like this in the US right now). I’m curious about the January 2023 hearings you’re referencing – are you thinking those are a continuation of the current hearings about January 6? We’re pretty sure those will be disbanded once the Republicans regain control of the House & Senate during the mid-terms.
As for Trump and his grip on the GQP, his fall from grace cannot come soon enough but it honestly feels like this guy can get away with anything (‘teflon-Don’). He’s about to announce he’s running again, will further fracture our country in half, eroding norms and proper discourse in the process; it feels like a never ending nightmare.
All of this is certainly contributing to a feeling of being ‘stuck’ in my own life somehow. Originally from Europe, I moved to Los Angeles 13 years ago (to the day basically) and it no longer feels like home. Unsure as to where home actually is, stuck in a job I no longer enjoy (co-workers included), with no real insight on the path ahead. Very strange times; nothing really feels tangible or pleasant anymore.
Thank you. Yes, we are due for more revelations in January 2023, which have not been announced yet (as far as I know); I am taking a long look into the future of the American astrology chart, here. Mercury Retrograde turns Direct on January 12th 2023 so we will see missing CCTV footage or new recordings of telephone calls, or e-mail records, which were not in hand before. All this happens in Capricorn, which is America’s Sun Sign. The hearings look as if they will be disbanded once the Republicans take over, but there is another ‘hearing’ or legal process in January 2023. Trump will not remain to fight another day, let alone win another day; again, it is written in the stars. He is, as the phrase has it, a dead man walking. I am sorry you don’t feel at home in Los Angeles or enjoy your work there; you are a Sun Sagittarius who has typically emigrated but are now in a different country and in fact a different world. You will be given the opportunity to relocate to a bigger and better home from October 29th until December 20th. Use that window if you can. If you wanted to permanently return to Europe in time for Christmas that would also suit, but your luck doesn’t hold with these Jupiter transits for your house or apartment, town or country, past the 20th.
Hi again, Jessica!
My comment was edited by Support at my request (I did not realize my last name was going to be displayed as I posted right after getting a membership but before I had a chance to edit the settings on my portal, ha!). So this is technically my reply…
Interesting to hear your insight about Trump and his being unable to fight or win another day past January 2023. This ultimately would be outstanding but isn’t it too late? The damage he’s inflicted upon this nation and insidious lies that permeate our society today seem so far beyond repair – like wack-a-mole, we also have 20 other mini autocrats in the making; they’re gaining position of power deep within our government (from mayors to governors). If the one who started it all is no longer able to fight or win, whatever will happen to the other ones in the Republican Party resolute in their intent to break all the rules and norms to keep control of whatever power they have left?
I think most of America is (or at least a big majority) hoping for a blue wave come the mid-terms in response to Roe v. Wade being recently overturned by this bunch of non-elected despots. Arguably, some people think this is what was needed to energize people to go out and vote come the fall. You’ve referenced a change of flag down the line as if the country will cease to exist as we know today, no longer ‘united’ states but a mismatch of sovereign neighbors; it’s really hard to fathom.
As for my Jupiter transits you mentioned and relocation opportunity, what should one expect and how should I go about dealing with those? The thought of undertaking another move on the scale of the one I’ve gone through 13 years ago is enough to make my head spin! 🙂
Thank you again and all the best,
Thank you AP. Yes, there is a relocation opportunity Halloween through Christmas 2022 but of course you have to want to go. I can lead a horse to water but I can’t make it drink. The Republican Party as a whole will be gutted March through June 2023 and in slow stages (stop-start gutting) from that point. As I write this the January 6th hearings are unfolding. It’s rather a late reply to your question for which I apologise but better late than never. The Democrats will win the Midterms, which should not stop anyone from voting, but it will divide America. Part of America will join Canada in a much closer relationship as sympathetic ideas find neighbours with each other from 2026. That year, 2026, is also the year we begin to see Texas among other red states separate herself. We are moving into Pluto in Aquarius, and Uranus in Gemini, so the future is much more free – depending on where you live.
I am a Capricorn. I have Capricorn in several areas of my charts. My husband is an Aquarius 2/3/1969. I have been on my own since 17, I haven’t had an easy life and worked for everything I have. We have no kids. Plus I got into crypto. However, I made some really bad financial decisions, over the past couple of months. I am so stressed and having a hard time trying to figure out how I am going to get out of this huge financial mess I have created. I have loved my job in medical sales for the past 20 year but it is changing. I can’t seem to stay happy or motivated. I am really having a hard time seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. Also, my husband is thinking of retiring in 2023 from teaching and taking over his brother in laws painting business. I just feel hopeless and lost. I would really appreciate any insight or direction you could provide based on my chart.
You are a Sun Capricorn with a stellium in Scorpio in your Eighth House of joint finance and property. I am sorry about the financial mess. The burden ends in March 2023. There will be no more heavy lifting over your money, or home. I can get to your husband in a moment. For you, the big story is a long transformation of your finances, evident from March-June 2023 at first, then a way of life from the mid 2020’s. It happens in stages. You may be suffering with depression. Have you spoken to a doctor about your options? They don’t have to involve drugs. There is good evidence from science and medicine to support all kinds of solutions, including walking. If you feel hopeless and lost you are allowed to be; you are going through the toughest financial cycle in 29 years. It is over in March as I said, but we now need to talk about your husband. You two owe each other karmically. You took vows of course. But the karma comes from the South Node in Scorpio in your Eighth House, bringing back what you owe, or what you are owed, from 18 or 19 years ago. It’s always about sex, death and money (as they say) so it can involve family or other partners too. The karma ends in July 2023. The closure happens and you can move on. So there is hope and change ahead. If he goes into business you may very well make your own, new, financial decisions too. Depression is an awful illness and it will help to visit the Beyond Blue and Black Dog websites, and also to try some free hypnosis – Paul McKenna on YouTube. He’s the biggest-selling non-fiction author in Britain and gives his work free, which is very generous.
Hi Jessica, I remember you saying that November 2022 will see Blue wave or shocking Democrat victory. Although, the eclipse on election day may not make who won in some election races clear the same day. I wasn’t sure after your latest comment “once the Republicans take over”. Do you now see that the Republicans taking over the House and Senate or was that just a typo?
Also, you previously mentioned its beginning of the end for the Republicans post-election. So, if Republicans lost in November and Trump finally being formally charged essentially assures this result. While a victory by them prolongs their end or demise.
Hopefully, we see a big October surprise? Thanks!
Donald Trump has been on the way out since I predicted he would go down in October 2020 (on this website and also on YouTube). The long slide seems really drawn out, because that’s the way this cycle is. He will depart the scene soon enough. The Republicans have already taken over the Supreme Court – sorry that wasn’t clear. What the astrology suggests is a Democrat win at the Midterms.
Dear Jessica, I wish March wasn’t so far away from now. It is indeed tough, and in every corner of the world simultaneously. I wonder if Pluto is the one responsible for nukes and nuclear energy. There are a lot of talks lately about potential nuclear war, which I personally don’t think will happen (call it wishful thinking), but at the same time we have a nuclear plant pretty much taken hostage in Ukraine. Chances that complicated and sensitive equipment is messed up with are high. What do stars say on that? (And yes, we all probably should go very, very green in the future, no fossil fuel, no nuclear energy, no potential disaster)
It’s okay, the transition away from plutocrats and towards people power actually began at Christmas 2020 with Saturn and Jupiter going into Aquarius; it picks up dramatically in March 2023, sure, but things are already in motion for a complete global change. The nuclear issue will be part of the ‘new’ United Nations and you’d be watching that NYC water conference by the UN in March as a really telling guide to where things are going in future – it will be a better future.
Hi Jessica, Great article! My life has felt very ‘stuck’ since 2008 work and personal. Every time I think I could be pushing forward something has happened which takes me back to the start again. Throughout lockdown I worked very hard to use the time to create change in work which It did and was working well up until Nov/Dec2021, now I find myself back at where I started again (before lockdown) which is so disappointing. Will Pluto leaving Capricorn finally enable me to change my life both personally and work wise? Could it bring big changes for me?
Thank you. You are a Sun Capricorn with stelliums in Aries, Libra, Capricorn, Aquarius. The first three are cardinal signs and bump up against each other. So there is an inner pinball machine here, which you’ve had since childhood. Aspects of yourself which incline towards self-promotion and assertiveness don’t blend with the aspects which want to be in a duet, double-act or partnership (or any kind). Those in turn are hard to manage with your career, unpaid work or academic career (Capricorn). Setting the Aquarius stellium aside, this cardinal pattern has been triggered since 2008 by Pluto in Capricorn, Uranus in Aries, Chiron in Aries. So when you say you push forward and go back to the start, you are probably hitting barriers in your First House, Seventh House and Tenth House as you push one and find the other stands in your way. Finding a creative way to live out your Aries, Libra, Capricorn side is one way through. Understanding these signs in your chart and their houses can be useful. For example, your Capricorn side/Capricorn destiny is rather slow, steady, plodding, respectful of the system, traditional hierarchical, literally systematic. Your Aries side is about action, assertion, self-interest – and doesn’t really mix with that. Libra pairs up, goes into double-acts of all kinds, seeks difference in order to balance the scales and find equality. Again, that doesn’t blend with your Aries side which is far more interested in your self – literally, yourself. Just knowing that can help you figure out a way through. It may be that you decide to pull back on one aspect of your chart to promote the other. So, for example, you may retreat on the ‘Me’ of Aries to pursue the ‘we’ of Libra with someone, on whatever level. It all becomes a great deal easier once Pluto is out of Capricorn from March 2023.
I have a few planets in Capricorn and some asteroids at 28°. Should I be nervous about the end of Pluto in Capricorn? Or will this bring freedom and liberation?
Proserpina – 28° Cancer 23′ 17″ R
Aesculapia – 28° Libra 44′ 59″
Bacchus – 28° Sagittarius 16′ 01″
Mercury – 28° Capricorn 12′
I’ve had a pretty tough time since 2008. I had no job security from 2008 until 2013, and I moved to Canada in 2013. I was laid off in 2016 and moved for work later that year. I dislike my current job, but it pays the bills. I’ve been looking at other positions, but all I can see is more of the same politics if I move to another consultant. A competitor is in the process of buying my current company. I don’t have a good feeling about the buyout, and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if there were layoffs as a result of the sale. I’m trying not to make any decisions out of fear of what might be around the corner, but I have a feeling my life is going to change. Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for all you do!
Kim, you don’t get freedom and liberation with the end of Pluto in Capricorn, but you do get the end of total control and manipulation by the men in suits. Sometimes the women in suits, but usually the men, as Capricorn rules patriarchy. You are going through the ‘politics’ part of the cycle which is actually going to help you develop your power. You are really going through the grit in the oyster stage. It makes the pearl. People who are frankly not remotely entitled to the power they claim (lack of talent, lack of ability and so on) are the grit. Your response to them/to that is going to take massive willpower, Kim, but it will also help you find a very, very powerful niche within your chosen field, or perhaps another, as you go from 2023 to 2025. From New Year’s Day 2025 you wave goodbye to all that, forever. The buyout and layoffs will be a memory and you will have solidified your reputation and strengthened your brand. I suspect what is coming is a new project or role, which you master by sheer effort, but you will never regret it. Eventually the petty people who are playing pathetic people power politics (that is a lot of p’s) will exit stage left, for whatever reason. But you’ll be way past all that by then. Focus on a very big ambition that you can make come true, not only in spite of them, but because of them. That is really what Pluto’s gift is.
Interesting article! The most recent Pluto cycle, I was going through a divorce that shook me to my core.
Maybe I am in for some healing?
Thank you Jessica ❤️
I’m afraid you are not logged in so I can’t see your birth chart.
Oh Jessica, what a great post! Thank you so much! Can you give me some hints on any substantial changes in my life after Pluto changes sign?
Actually I didn’t have time to see this post from you until today, which is a month later. In June I was in a turmoil in job and faced emotional roller-coaster, and I was in a huge pressure to quit my job. Luckily I got multiple outside job offers just before the pressure I faced was too high to contain. I will change job in August.
Appreciate if there is any advice on my future job and career movement. Thank you so much!
Thank you. So the astrology is coming true for you, even though you didn’t have time to see the post. I am glad you are changing your job in August. Pluto takes time to push off. So you are in transition away from the total, dominating control of politicians (the worst expression of Pluto in Capricorn) from March 24th 2023 until June 11th 2023. You can expect a lot of heads to roll in that period. It’s the same with your career, which is also an expression of Pluto in Capricorn. In those months you may hear about the exit of a person who tried to control you, or your work, in recent years. He or she may leave the industry, be sacked, or disappear for other reasons. Within your wider profession you have seen/are still seeing all kinds of petty politics and power plays, but these end March-June 2023, and what you see from that point forward is just a whole lot of people and organisations spinning their wheels and going nowhere. Why? Pluto is retrograde. Going backwards. Once you get to November 20th 2024 these individuals or entities are finished. They either have to transform, or vanish.
I was reading your answer to GL and it feels like you were talking to me. I guess I have too many contradictory energy in my chart, I apparently have problems to thrive alone but I cannot be myself in the best way if I am with someone, I feel invaded. I just decided to be alone and try to use my criativity, as you said it will be so important in the next years. I took two tarot cards and they were the 6 of sword and the 10 of pentacles. Not sure what they want to tell me, but it seems it is good
There is a Tarot interpretation next to the cards, written at some length, for Premium Members and you can also pick up an ebook on the same from your library on the website.
I’m curious if you see anything jumping out at you, in my chart, with the transition of Pluto out of Capricorn and into Aquarius?
Seems like there is a lot going on in my 10th house (of my extended Natural Chart) and opposite 4th house.
Also, thinking about a possible move out of our current State we live in — to another state for retirement.
Politically – I don’t agree with you. Our country is worse off with President Biden and VP Harris.
The damage has been done to the Democratic Party and I can not see a good outcome for them.
I guess we will see…
You are a Sun Sagittarius with your Midheaven in Taurus. In both house systems I use for you, solar and natal, you have dramatic changes in your career, academic career or unpaid work as Pluto transitions from Capricorn to Aquarius. In your solar chart, now through 2026, you have Uranus with all his revolution, shock, freedom and independence visiting your Sixth House of work and health. In your natal chart, we find the end of many years of transformation in your professional, academic or unpaid working life – finishing in March 2023 – until June 2023. This feels like May 2023 is the turning point, as Jupiter then enters your natal chart in Taurus, and begins moving slowly towards a conjunction with your Midheaven. You say you are retiring but I don’t think so. You will pick up voluntary or other non-profit roles until 2026.
I am pretty new to astrology however this article was really interesting because it seemed to reflect what has happened since 2008. I wonder how this transition (2023) will affect my birth chart and especially my neptune which is in 29 degrees capricon.
Neptune in Capricorn is an entire generation, including you, who seek an escape from the real world through success, position, ambition and mission. Weirdly, your holiday from reality is actually the very real matter of a particular kind of job, unpaid work or academic career. Pluto in conjunction with Neptune will affect an entire generation, including yourself, in a personal way that reflects the political. The years 2023, 2024, 2025 are really about examining what success means to you in the context of the new world. An employer or senior may take over, or there may be a takeover or merger where you work, or at your university. This will mean you have to figure out the professional or academic structure you have chosen to climb, why you are climbing, what would happen if you stopped, or even found another mountain to climb. Once the questions are resolved, you go into the second half of the 2020s not ever having to think about it again.
Hello Jessica, thanks so much for your astrology posts. I really enjoy them and also all of the comments from everyone! I am really hoping to see some change away from the corruption by people in power. I am excited to see what the younger folks will get up to with this move into Aquarius. I was also wondering if you see any changes coming that might affect my chart? I have my natal Mars in Capricorn and a bunch of planets in my 10th house (I think) and just wondering how this could play out?
Yes, March 24th 2023 is a game-changer with successful worldwide protests by Millennials and their older allies based around the United Nations conference in New York. The corruption by the suits at the top goes in slow stages; a huge light at the end of the tunnel can be expected on March 24th, possibly because some of those leaders die, others are voted out, resign, receive jail sentences or retire. In your own chart Salacia 26 and Ceres 27 Capricorn point to ongoing reshuffles in the balance of power in your career, academic career or unpaid role. There will be mergers, demotions and promotions in broad system change, either in the work place or university itself, or in your chosen field. This is evident with Pluto at 27 Capricorn now in July 2022 and the transition away from your old life, to the new life, is as slow and powerful as the earth’s plates shifting. It’s evident again at Christmas 2022 when traditionally people are laid off; retire; take long-service leave; are promoted; accepted into courses and so on. As you have a transiting stellium in Capricorn in December 2022, January 2023 you have crossroads choices then, particularly just before Christmas Eve. Pluto lingers until March 2023, when you get a break from the politics, and returns to 27 Capricorn in September 2023, vanishing by October. That’s his last hurrah with your chart; no more conjunctions. Transiting Pluto in the Tenth House can indicate issues about who or what is in charge; who or what is in control; who or what has the power. For that reason if there is any paperwork involved with your paid, unpaid or academic goals and roles, read it very carefully. Yet, Pluto also empowers. If you push back, discipline yourself and use self-control to have control, you will go into the second half of the 2020s with incredible self-respect, strength and the admiration of those around you.
I am a Sun Scorpio and have Minerva and Bacchus at 2 & 8 degrees in Capricorn respectively. What significance will this hold in my life? Have been facing challenges at work and also in my personal relationships? Hoping to see some positive changes soon.
Thanks and regards
You are a Sun Scorpio with a large Scorpio stellium in the Eighth House of financial and property based relationships. Pluto is now at the end of the cycle so those conjunctions were over a longtime ago. The karmic issues with personal relationships, either sexual or family, end in July 2023. Until then you have to pursue closure as life 18 or 19 years ago is catching up with you. You are owed, or you owe. Until 2026 the challenge to change is there with money, property, valuables, business or charity as you must examine the big ticket items in your will, or the nature of the relationships with those you name in your legacy. Evaluating those relationships will be paramount. If you enter into a new sexual partnership or leave a marriage then allow for all outcomes in the paperwork as Uranus in Taurus is in opposition right to the end of the cycle, at 29 degrees, in 2026. Work is full of opportunities and solutions between now and October and again from January to May 2023. Luck is on your side and what is offered will be bigger and better than you anticipate.
Interesting article! The most recent Pluto cycle, I was going through a divorce that shook me to my core.
Maybe I am in for some healing?
Thank you Jessica ❤️
The transiting South Node in Scorpio has been through your Eighth House of sex and money, opposing everything you have in Taurus. It has one more year to go and is out of your life in July 2023. From that point forward life becomes a great deal easier. Until then the more you adjust your life budget the easier it is to recover from a divorce. Have a look at Scorpio and the Eighth House; that’s where the story is.
Dear Jessica, i am reading this amazing article tonight. My life (including finances and income) has been totally transformed since 2007 onwards when my life totally changed as I knew it before. You told me in a recent comment that my financial burden will disappear after march 2023 (hopefully as this year it has been so bad). I was wondering what you think of my Ceres also being in Capricorn in house 10 and is this good news for me? Thank you for responding.
Thank you. You are a Sun Capricorn with Ceres in Capricorn as well. So you are a careerist who can and should plug into a system you respect and climb slowly to the top. If you were doing that since 2008 when Pluto entered Capricorn and your Tenth House of position, ambition and mission, then it’s been tough to do that. Your entire profession has changed. Once Pluto is out of Capricorn from March 2023 you are ‘free to go’ in terms of success. No more people politics. Your finances will stop being a heavy burden in March 2023 when Saturn is out of Aquarius. At that point you will be given the self-control to really control your money and could be in a far more powerful position financially by 2030.
Thank you! Fingers and toes crossed! I spent last night reading everyones comments and I am wondering if my my 29 degree north and south nodes will be affected in a positive or negative way.
Thank you. The Gemini-Sagittarius nodal axis is aspected by Pluto as he exits Capricorn, with the first obvious bump as 2022 ends and 2023 begins. Gemini rules local travel and Sagittarius rules foreign travel, and foreign tourists. This is pretty obvious. The United States has just sounded an emergency warning on Monkeypox. We already have Covid spread by travellers. You will see the men at the top (Pluto in Capricorn) in governments worldwide, return to controlling tourism and business travel again. I’m sure you’re avoiding airports and cruise ships anyway, but just be aware that this will affect you or the people you know, as you end one year and go into the next one. It lingers in 2023, 2024, as Pluto comes back and forth at the final degrees of Capricorn.
