Many of you have heard that The United States of America is approaching its Pluto Return. I know that, to many of you, that sounds kind of scary, and I admit it doesn’t sound like a fun-fest to me either. Most people in the modern era live long enough to experience a Saturn Return (or two, or three), so we’ve observed the effects of that particular transit. Plenty of people make it to their Uranus Return, although that doesn’t kick in until you’re in your mid-80s.

But how can we know what a Pluto Return is like, given that it takes until you’re pushing 250 to happen?

(No matter what transits are happening, how they play out in your life depends on your individual birth chart. Write me with your date, time, and place of birth — and I’ll send you a copy and a free sneak preview!)

Suppose for a moment that people rarely (or never) lived long enough to experience the Saturn Return. We might still be able to infer what it might be like based on what happens during the waxing and waning Saturn Square, and the Saturn Opposition. We could also do the same for the Uranus Return.

Over the course of the next three blog entries, I’m going to dig into America’s two Pluto Squares and the Opposition, to see how the Pluto Return may play out. As best as possible, I’m going to try to sort out what actually happened, and then apply it to what is happening now — and may be happening in the next three years — as Pluto returns to 27 degrees and 33 minutes Capricorn, where it was on July 4, 1776. Even more so? I’m going to try to avoid (as best as possible) the worst of the doom-and-gloom scenarios that are naturally creeping into the conversation around this in the astrological community. Hey: both you and America have seen some tough transits in your time and made it through, right? So: relax!

One of the surest predictions an astrologer can make is that somewhere, someone will get totally bent out of shape over an Eclipse — but is this really necessary? Let’s have a look and see if the upcoming Total Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio is worth panicking over. This Eclipse is exact shortly after midnight Eastern […]

It never ceases to amaze me how well astrology works… not just when it comes to predicting future trends and the course of relationships and such, but for everything. Case in point: last night after church services (which in my case, means watching whatever iteration of the 90 Day Fiance franchise is invading my screen […]
