Liz Greene is perhaps my very favorite astrologer, in that she is very much oriented to the unconscious mind, and has published penetrating books on Saturn (keeper of the gates to the unconscious), plus Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, all denizens of the unconscious that both deepen our intelligence (if we can manage to consciously attune to them) and connect us inexorably with humans everywhere, since we are all being struck by (Uranus), swimming(Neptune) and diving (Pluto) in the same unconscious soup! Think zeitgeist! And how it changes through time, synchronized with the planets of the unconscious as they change signs through time.
Indeed, were it not for the planets of the unconscious mind, I would have not nearly the same interest in the symbolic language of astrology.
Green’s overview of the possible repercussions in and to the United States of Pluto’s passage through Capricorn was written in 2005. It feels remarkably prescient, if perhaps a bit too optimistic. On the other hand, Liz Greene did not predict the rise of Donald J. Trump. Who could have predicted that?
It’s as if he came out of nowhere, to hurl a wrecking ball into long-running deep state plans to obliterate the U.S. as a nation and fold it into the “new world order” centralized state otherwise known as “globalism.”
Instead, Trump talks MAGA “Make America Great Again.” And that’s not just an egocentric boast. He also, in a recent tweet, exhorted France to “make France great again.” The point is, Trump is a nationalist, not a globalist. Period.
BTW: If you have time, you might want to watch this video, a compilation of clips from various Trump interviews from 1980 on. It certainly does appear that he is doing, or damn well attempting to do, exactly what he has been talking about all along. Whether or not his diagnosis of the deplorable state of the U.S. is correct, or attempts to rectify the situation are either meaningful or helpful, especially after watching this video, I’d be surprised if anyone could continue to think he’s an idiot, a fool, and a liar. As a savvy businessman, he has a proven track record. And unlike politicians, despite massive resistance, he’s actually following through, or attempting to follow through, on his promises.
Frankly, given Trump’s deep familiarity with the process (and opportunity) of bankruptcy, I’m grateful that he’s our president during this time. Because you know, in your gut, that this is where the U.S. is headed, has been ever since early 2008, when Pluto entered Capricorn and the big banks nearly all went bust. Perhaps the actual bankruptcy will be kicked off by the upcoming Saturn/Pluto conjunction (January 2020); in any case, Pluto has been opposing the many U.S. planets in Cancer, detonating one after another, ever since 2008. And it’s nowhere near done!
The most significant transit of our lifetimes, and of the — still short, remember, compared to, say China, or India! — lifetime of the U.S.A. itself, will be the first return of Pluto to its own natal place in the U.S. chart. Might we begin to get a taste of our own medicine? Might we begin to recognize the wisdom of growing up and not acting out like a teenage bully?
We are already feeling a foretaste of this transit, as much vaunted hegemonic American power (“hyperpower,” “empire,” “Project for a New American Century,” 800 military bases world-wide) over the planet begins its long, slow, deeply painful decomposition. This process will ramp up to actual detonation during the final years of Pluto’s transit through Capricorn (2021-2024), during which I expect an ongoing dematerialization, one after another, of all the hierarchical structures that have held energy in form since the U.S. was born. This includes central banks dealing in fake fiat money, the reliance on war to keep the economy growing (the U.S. has been at war for all but 14 years of its existence), and the predatory capitalist economic system as a whole. As has been said many times, one cannot continue to infinitely “grow” an extractive economy on a finite planet! And capitalism, by its very nature, requires continuous growth!
If even a semblance of these “United States” survives the Plutonian onslaught of death and rebirth of the material structures that hold energy in form we might finally expect to participate in the emergence of a new reality, one in which the deep state which has been running the U.S. is no longer capable of holding its own people in economic slavery, nor of policing, enslaving, and destroying the rest of the world.
More on both those configurations to come. Meanwhile, I give you Liz Greene’s interpretation, composed in advance, of the long Pluto in Capricorn transit and its possible effects on the U.S. chart.
