Excavating Drill Sergeant: The Sun Meets Pluto in Capricorn

The Sun will conjunct Pluto at 9 degrees Capricorn, on December 30th. Look at this as a continuation of the Full Cancer Moon theme, but also a powerful new beginning.

Sun/Pluto in Capricorn digs like a drill sergeant. It confronts you with your Shadow. But it also gives you access to tremendous power. Whether you complete something, or have a huge emotional release on the Full Moon, December 30th will get you back on track. Pluto is about intensity, and Capricorn is about control. The Sun is an activator. So you may be pushed into a situation (back to work? on to the next phase?) before you feel ready. There won't be much time to wallow in the Full Moon fallout, and it will be for the best. Whatever gets thrown at you, just take it and go.

You already know what's going to happen. I don't even need to tell you. The energy is building right now, as I type this. Check the house in your chart where transiting Pluto and the Sun are coming together. That's where you'll have to get back up on the horse/prove it/work it/take control. Sun/Pluto will give you the tools to march into the New Year.

Ask yourself:

  • What's intensifying in the Capricorn area (the house with Capricorn in it) in my chart?
  • What is transiting Pluto getting rid of, and what is it empowering?  Remember that Pluto simultaneously excavates and intensifies.

If you have planets/angles between 8-9 degrees Capricorn/Cancer/Aries/Libra, you'll be hit most strongly.
