Pluto Stationary Direct in October 2022 at 27 Capricorn
Category: Astrological News Written by Robert Wilkinson
A View From Our Spiritual Mountaintop.
Pluto represents the Divine Power of ultimate regeneration, and is the Lord of the Underworld we all must pass through at least once in our life if we are to be a purified vessel and become authentic to our core. It is going stationary direct at this time. What does this hold for us?
Pluto’s exact direct station occurs at 2:56 pm PDT October 9 at 27 Capricorn. As is the case with all the outer planets when they turn stationary direct or retrograde, it marks a major “sea change” in those invisible Spiritual transpersonal energies. We are all about to have a different but familiar Plutonic transformational experience where we are shown anew the span Pluto has been traversing off and on since March 2021.
Where We’ve Been in the Global Transformational Process
When Pluto made the transition from the first half of Capricorn to the second half of Capricorn in 2015-2016, we began to leave the Scene of Crystallization and entered the Scene of Group Performance. As we’re discussing Pluto, it means the seeds of collective personal power (Capricorn) moved out of the period where these were “crystallized” and into a period where this crystallized power would be expressed in group forms. It is easy to see how that has dominated public affairs since period leading up to and including the election of 2016.
The span of 16-20 Capricorn is the actional level of how that “group performance” has worked out. The span of 21-25 is the emotional, social, and cultural level of how that “group performance” has been and is working out. The span of 26-30 Capricorn which Pluto began to transit in January 2021 is the individual, mental, and spiritual level of how these seeds of transformational group performance will express.
Between January and April 2018, Pluto moved from 19 to 22 Capricorn. It then retrograded back to 19 Capricorn, where it went direct in September 2018. It remained in its shadow zone through early February 2019 after which it occupied 23 and 24 Capricorn which humanity has not experienced since 1773-1774. Each of these gave us various Plutonic exposures to the themes of that section of Capricorn.
It went retrograde at 24 Capricorn in April 2019, and retrograded back to 21 Capricorn, where it went stationary direct. It then remained in its “shadow zone” through February 2020, and then entered the unknown zone of 25 Capricorn which humanity has not experienced since 1774-1775.
It went stationary retrograde at 25 Capricorn in late August 2020, stayed on that degree through early July, and then retrograded back to 23 Capricorn, where it went stationary direct in October 2020. It then remained in its shadow zone through late January 2021 and entered the unknown zone of 26 Capricorn which humanity has not experienced since 1775-1776.
It went stationary retrograde at 27 Capricorn in early June 2021, remained on that degree through mid-August, and then retrograded back to 25 Capricorn, where it went stationary direct. It remained in its shadow zone through early February 2022, and then entered the unknown zone of 28 Capricorn which humanity has not experienced since 1776-1777.
It went stationary retrograde at 29 Capricorn in late April 2022, and then retrograded back to 27 Capricorn, where it now goes stationary direct. It will remain in its “shadow zone” through early February 2023, and then it will enter the unknown zone of 30 Capricorn and 1 Aquarius which humanity has not experienced since 1777-1778.
So Pluto is moving through the same spans, and hitting the same stations, as it did 245 years ago! We have an equivalence between 2015-2022 and 1770-1777, so it would seem that revolutionary times are upon us over the next 4 years!
How Does the Second Half of Capricorn Differ From the First?
The span from 16-20 Capricorn is where personal power gets translated into group energy through activities. Pluto has been in the second half of Capricorn for a while, and when it left the second decan in December 2018, we moved out of the Taurus third of Capricorn and into the Virgo decan
Pluto first occupied the Virgo decan from early February through early July 2018. It went back into the Taurus decan from July through December 2018, and then re-entered the Virgo decan in mid-December where it will remain until 2024. Its occupancy of the Taurus sector of Capricorn from 2013-2018 gave both stability and stubbornness to the Pluto in Capricorn expression, and now we’re solidly into the more functional practicality of the Virgo decan influence. This will give way to a blended Capricorn/Aquarius energy when Pluto first enters Aquarius in late March 2023.
Because Virgo rules Nature Herself and all food and organic commodity production, beginning 2019 and lasting through 2024, we can expect more extreme weather and crop problems, as well as upheavals related to other natural phenomenon, since Nature expresses in these Virgo forms. Many things in the future will give way and transform as a function of pure necessity as extreme weather brings changes in where and how food is produced in our world.
Sabian Symbols Themes
It is now stationary direct at 27 Capricorn, the same degree where it first transited between early March and late June 2021. This degree has been highly activated all year, since it is very close to the Mars-Pluto conjunction of March 2020, AND two of the Jupiter conjunctions with Pluto in March and June 2020!
The Sabian Symbol for the 27th degree of Capricorn is "A mountain pilgrimage.” In the original notes from the Marc Jones class on the symbols published in The Astrology of Personality, Rudhyar says this is a degree of “necessary linkage of above and below in the seeker’s personal experience,” and “balanced dualism of subjective-objective life.”
In the Astrological Mandala he goes on to say this is a degree of "the ascent of the individualized consciousness to the highest realizations reached by the spiritual leaders of its culture,” where we find that our “peak experiences” often “depend to a very great extent upon following a path which many have trod before, under the inspiration of the great Teachers and Sages of our race.”
These “shrines” are “built by the unceasing dedication” of generations, where each “finds on their own mountaintop what … seems a unique and transcendent revelation.” He goes on that here “we witness the rise of the human consciousness,” where it is our “supreme task to rise like fire, impelled by a vision (we) share with our companions.” He says the keyword is upreaching, and that this degree falls in the Span of Dependence, and is the counterpoint degree in the individual, mental, and spiritual level of the Scene of Group Performance in the Act of Capitalization.
Dr. Jones, creator of the Sabian Symbols, says this is a degree of "a pyramiding reality” in terms of “inner or spiritual realization in a complete harmony of all the ideals and values ever developed” by humanity. He states “here is an indomitable integrity of human comprehension, and an intensification of every vision to which intelligence might aspire,” where we are “encouraged to hold unswervingly to the ultimate course” we choose to follow.
He offers us the keyword PERSEVERENCE. He says when positive, this degree is "a total reconciliation of mind and heart in an unquestioned devotion to some worthwhile task at hand.”
So Pluto now moves forward in its invisible transformational influence working through the structures built by Saturn and Jupiter since early 2020. The larger theme of this degree is about us finding profound core seed principles related to our path to Spiritual realization. Are you in harmony with the values and ideals of the realization you aspire to experience? Hold to your “indomitable integrity” and the spiritual course you have chosen that exemplifies an ideal you hold dear. You share this path with many; who are your Brothers and Sisters? Link “the above and the below” in your life, and you will begin to see your life take shape in the spiritual ideal you hold as your own in your heart.
With Pluto making this a hot spot last year and this, we must find the spiritual will and inner integrity which helps us honor the core principles we share with others across space and time. We now commence a new chapter in our Plutonic adventure, having looked back at the distant past when we linked with the World Soul and found other truth seekers there in a collective “peak experience” and able to look with new eyes at recent events requiring us to see our connection with Life on all levels, and especially our own “shrine of higher awareness.” We now have a long range perspective about how the “spiritual mountain” we’ve climbed is leading us to a greater connection with Self, with others, with the Earth, and with Truth.
Pluto Purifying Us To Make Us Fit For A Greater Spiritual Effectiveness
With Pluto, Saturn, and Jupiter all occupying the second half of Capricorn in 2020, we were called to some form of “group performance” in 2019 and 2020 in a social or cultural way. We are now well into our several year journey into individual and spiritual “group performance,” learning to enjoy the security of knowing who our spiritual Brothers and Sisters are within the larger group work.
This period was primed by the accelerated growth of 2020, where we found our place of best service given our skills. Over the past 3-4 years we’ve had to surrender at times to achieve true spiritual victory, and seek a “transcendent security,” whether through things being taken away or things being offered to us.
As with the past 4 years, we are entering a very dynamic Pluto direct period, given the aspects in play in the chart for the direct station. The Grand Irrationality is on the move, given the septile-series aspects to Pluto from the Sun and Venus. This shows a fork in the road as certain Pluto cycles culminate, and activates the 7 Pointed “Star of Destiny” for all of us! Affected zones include 13-17 Libra, 4-8 Sagittarius, 25-29 Capricorn, 17-21 Pisces, 9-13 Taurus, 1-5 Cancer, and 22-26 Leo.
Moving Forward Into the Unknown
As I offered earlier, Pluto represents the Lord of the Underworld, as well as global pressures for radical purification and transformation. Its stay in Capricorn has brought forth the worst in governments, dictatorships, control systems, and financial systems. Each time transiting Pluto is put under pressure from squares, it can lead to the demonstration of heavy handed actions, or a curbing of those actions. We have two squares coming from the Sun and Venus, with the Mercury square arriving in late October. All of the inner planet cycles with Pluto will be re-set at their conjunctions in January and early February.
Hard Pluto transits can bring up deep fears, and as we are thinking, feeling interactive Beings, if we feel at all we will feel the widespread fear and dread associated with the collective instability and uncertainty. This has been a common complaint among many I know, due to the destabilization of the world we used to know and live in.
Because both Saturn and Pluto are associated with our deepest, darkest fears, I devoted quite a few pages to the best ways we can manage these energies to our benefit in my book Saturn: Spiritual Master, Spiritual Friend. Everyone on Earth at some point must confront the need to go into their personal “underworld” to come out with a purified ego that can serve as an adequate vehicle for the expression of our Higher Self. Difficult Pluto transits offer us opportunities to come out of fear and dread, purified of the dross of the lower self. My book offers valuable tools to navigate these difficult transits, so if you haven’t already, please consider getting your copy. And if you do have a copy, please re-read what I offer about the dance Saturn does with Pluto to purify us of our deepest fears so we may become the fully realized Spiritual Being we are.
After the 2017 Pluto direct lessons of being freed from old inhibitions, the 2018 direct lessons related to an accelerated learning pace, the 2019 lessons of accelerating our growth within some sort of group context, cooperative practical service, planned group activities, and a greater knowledge of the give and take of life, and the 2020 lessons of receiving rewards for courage in discharging our duties nobly under difficult conditions, in 2021 we entered a period of seeing the spiritual mountaintop we have attained and looked around to see our spiritual Brothers and Sisters. We now enter a period of using our view of our spiritual community to move forward into the seeds of an entirely new world of experience once Pluto enters Aquarius.
Keep in mind that the massive pressure we all feel is part of a long term acceleration phase in the ongoing transformational process. While Pluto continues to sprout the Capricorn seeds set into motion in 2020, we also have a long wave 20 year Aquarian cycle that’s been unfolding for almost two years. We are now forming the preliminary structures for the coming Age of Aquarius which we’ll enter after 2050. And it’s guaranteed that the 20 year Grand Mutation cycle in Aquarius which began at 1 Aquarius will be moved dramatically into manifestation when Pluto goes stationary retrograde at 1 Aquarius in a few months.
Those who are on a spiritual path have been experiencing joy, power, understanding, and wisdom to the degree we are mature, organized, and grounded as we have steered our lives through the major transformational period of 2020-2021. This has helped us to a more effective expression of our Higher Self as we embrace the future oriented pulses which began at the Grand Mutation of December 2020, ushering in new 20 and 200 year cycles.
