It’s an old Bob Dylan song, way I remember it, and at this point, I’m not bothering to go an look this one up. I’ve quoted it, exactly, either here or here, before. The lick goes something like this, “There was music in the cafes at night/Revolution was in the air.”
The trigger point I was working through, it starts with Pluto going into Capricorn. It’s exacerbated by Saturn Square Pluto, as Saturn shifts signs, well into the next year.
Cardinal Signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. Fire – Water – Air – Earth, in order.
There are two points to consider, last time, approximately, there was a Saturn in Libra Square Pluto in Capricorn, I showed it to be in the 1760’s. I’m thinking French Revolution, American Revolution, some of the movers and shakers of that time were doing some incredible revolutionary writing. All about process.
Was Pluto in Capricorn, and its subsequent square, was that a trigger point? Way I would see it now, the discontent was already there, and that triggered a release. Pluto in Capricorn, out with the old, in with the new. Established (Capricorn) institutions need to be (modified) by Pluto.
It gets to a tautology as to, which comes first, or what body is acting upon what.
Point is, like the song I quoted, there’s something in the air.
As a Sagittarius who’s lived through the whole Pluto-thing, I’ve been there. Pluto has a way of removing obstacles – whether we want our obstacles removed – or not. Which is part of the problem and we’re back to that reductive, circular reference.
The point is about change. I’d suggest that old, more established, even entrenched ideals are going to start to suffer. Pressure is on for change. Eventually, the outmoded, outdated material that no longer is viable? Excised.
I was struggling with a good way to approach this energy, this revolutionary drive that’s going to hit, I wrestled with words to work it out. I was wandering, far off my beaten path, and I hit upon an idea, as I glanced around at my surroundings.
Take one step outside the comfort zone.
As Pluto careens into Capricorn, the answer, the unasked question, the way to get through this, the message? One step outside the comfort zone.
My solution was more like about a two-mile detour outside my comfort zone. When I eventually doubled back, it was four miles out of my comfort zone. To be more truthful, I’d seen some of this terrain from the passenger side of a car. Still, on foot, in the urban jungle? Very much outside of my comfort zone.
That single step outside the comfort zone, though, that’s the secret for dealing with the revolutionary impact of Pluto in Capricorn – embrace it.
