I keep seeing/feeling current events inside their astrological background, the rare and Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn that has been forming all year, and is currently within three degrees of exactness. (See many previous posts.) This conjunction will be exact only once, on January 12, 2020, at 22°45 Capricorn, but will continue to strongly effect ourselves as individuals, as well as every morphing dimension within the entire zeitgeist through the remainder of the year. Please remember its basic meaning: the detonation and regeneration (Pluto) of old structures (Saturn), both visible and invisible, that no longer (Saturn) allow the life force (Pluto) to move freely.
Furthermore, please remember that this Saturn/Pluto conjunction is but the opening act of an extremely potent drama called The First Return of Pluto to its natal place in the U.S. chart. This will take a number of years to play out, indeed most of the next decade. Do not expect “normalcy” to return. Instead, expect dramatic ongoing purgation and hopefully regeneration, that will completely transform our relationship to, and experience of, both authentic and pretend power, and leave us, and all our institutions, changed.
Here are two early scenes from what we might call the Prelude to the Opening Act, both from the past day or two. Each has import beyond its initial content, is an example of an issue much much larger and more profound, and thus threatens to reverberate powerfully within both culture and politics.

Bill Clinton: pedophilia and satanic ritual:
Meanwhile, it’s very important that each of us continues to center ourselves and to breathe with and through the Love that fills and flows through the universe as the apocalypse (the revealing) continues to entice swamp creatures, processes, and structures to the surface where they can be seen, identified, and, hopefully, either removed or transformed.
By the way, one aspect of this Saturn/Pluto process is decidedly personal: where are the swamp creatures in me? Shadow work, my friends, utterly necessary in this apocalyptic time. Let us agree to recognize, name, and integrate the denied (usually unsavory) parts of ourselves that we tend instead, to project into the outer world and call someone else bad, wrong, evil, etc. I.e., there is no me vs you; there is only me versus the parts of myself that I have yet to acknowledge and hopefully, agree to begin to heal. As we release the denied parts of ourselves that have been tightly hoarding, restricting, slowing, stopping the life force within us, that life force can then begin again, to flow freely.
State of the Nation published an extremely sobering piece yesterday that really speaks to me. Though this particular essay does not mention it, can you imagine how heavy the weight of responsibility for the welfare — of not only the people of the United States, but for that of the entire world — sits on the shoulders of President Donald Trump, especially when he knows how this astonishing continuing multidimensional sting to “Drain the Swamp” endangers, not just his own life, but the lives of his cherished family?
