Saturn Square Pluto ~ November 15, 2009

Bookmark and Share

Ouch! So, it begins ... Saturn, the Taskmaster, entered Libra on October 29, a sign he has not visited since 1982. Saturn's focus in Libra is our relationships -- relating to partners, lovers, others. With whip in hand, Saturn's target for this whip lashing on November 15 is Pluto, the Annihilator, who is currently in Capricorn.

In Capricorn, Pluto takes a look at structure, foundation, and proven methods that may no longer be applicable to present life and living. Just because something has always been doesn't mean it should always be. There is no progress and no personal growth in keeping antiquated ways, ideas, values, and rules.

With Saturn and Pluto warring in the sky above us, we are forced to take a serious look at our relationships and/or what we hold on to for the sake of familiarity or even fear of the unknown, should we ever let go. In our waking world, tensions rise. We argue. We fight. We remain frustrated. Something has to give. Perhaps that something lies within us. Perhaps the first step depends upon the self.

Saturn disciplines us through restrictions while Pluto deepens our understanding through unearthing secrets; secrets others keep from us or ones we hide from the self because maybe, they are too difficult to accept. As an added bonus for us earthlings *sarcasm*, Saturn and Pluto will continue their battle for much of 2010, perfecting their alignments again on January 31 and August 21 next year.

Between Saturn showing us our realities, Pluto revealing hidden truths and this energy lingering for several months, there will undoubtedly be global effects of this alignment. On a personal level, however, expect to get to the nitty gritty, purge the unnecessaries, and arrive at a destination breathing in new life as a newer, stronger, more improved version of the self.

Elsewhere in the sky on November 15, the Sun's alignments to Uranus and the Triple Conjunction provide that additional swift kick as if Saturn and Pluto need any help with making us feel like we're between a rock and a hard place.

Although none of us are immune to the challenges imposed by Saturn and Pluto, early born cardinal signs or those with natal planets/house angles on or near zero to 2 degrees of cardinal signs may catch the brunt of this tension. Unsure if you have planets or angles on or around zero degree of cardinal signs, cast your own birth chart -- birth date, time, and place required.
