When someone comes to me asking if I can tell them about their current astrology chart, the first thing I do is ask them about their birth. I chart the planets according to the time and place of birth before beginning a detailed analysis of their current transits. I hear from most people when they are experiencing a Saturn Return. Saturn makes a full circle around all the signs of the horoscope approximately every 24-27 years. This occurs when a person leaves childhood and adolescence and enters adult life. Then again during later years when their own children have grown, they are facing upcoming senior preparations.
Pluto’s Return and 1776
The discussion of Pluto Return is an examination of the planetary placement at the time of the birth of America. July 4, 1776, is the planetary chart used as America’s birth chart. Pluto is on the Ascendant and defines America, so on February 22, 2022, when Pluto moved into position on America’s Ascendent, it is said to have Returned. Pluto is the slowest moving planet, and it has taken 246 years for it to transit through all the signs of the horoscope, to finally arrive back to the position it was in on America’s Independence Day. February 22, 2022 has come and gone. So why are we still fighting for freedom?
The Age of Aquarius and March
The position of Pluto, while significant, is not the only energy that is at work. The other planets are not in the same positions they were in in 1776, and more significantly, we are no longer in the Age of Pisces. This is 2022 and we are now in the Age of Aquarius. As we have seen with other planets, they tend to resonate with Pisces energy until they cross over into Aquarius. Pluto is the last planet to make this crossing. He is at 28 degrees of Capricorn and will cross into Aquarius on March 23, 2022 and will be able to take on Aquarius energies at that time. It is the beginning of a new cycle, but Pluto will retrograde back into Capricorn before reentering and remaining in Aquarius. This retrograde will happen in 2022 and then again in 2023. Pluto will finally enter Aquarius on January 21, 2024 and remain there until 2044. Coincidentally, very close to Inauguration Day. Seems like an opportune time for a Declaration!
Man and Woman, Mars and Venus
It might do well to look at other aspects closely affecting Pluto in America’s astrological chart at this time. Lurking just behind Pluto are Mars and Venus in the twelfth house of hidden enemies. Let’s take Pluto to mean the Phoenix, Mars a man and Venus a woman. As the Phoenix is preparing for the rebirth of a nation, built on the Aquarian principles of “We the People”, there is a man and woman who are playing a zero-sum game, and operate on the “All for ME, and nothing for you” principle.
Lilith, the Dark Moon
They are secretly plotting behind the scenes to create the birth of a nation on their own design and for their personal usage and selfish desires. Not to worry, Lilith, the dark moon is observing all of it. She has a deep understanding of the dark zone and is always informed of the scheme and carefully documenting all, but she goes unnoticed by Venus and Mars, as they consider her a no one. A servant in the background. Lilith is in good aspects with Pluto and reporting to Mercury all her findings. Mercury is very clever, analytical, and painstakingly precise, and lacks emotion in making decisions. He does not bend the truth and does not tolerate inconsistencies. Mercury is in the first house nestled close to Saturn. Saturn adheres strictly to boundaries and laws and takes counsel from Mercury currently. Beginning the first week of April 2022, Mars and Venus will meet face to face with Saturn and Saturn will lay down the law. With strong Pluto energy exposing what is rotten and purging what is toxic, it will not be pretty. But Pluto’s process is transformation.
We are finishing the first month of Adar and moving into Adar 2. The fast of Ester is on March 16, and we will read Manilas Ester on March 17. Shushan Purim is on the 18th of March. On the Jewish calendar, these dates are the 13, 14, and 15th of Adar 2. Blessings to all for a liberating month. We are heading into Passover, so the energy of liberation is peaking. Blessings to all,
Amy and Eli.
