Before we start with the mutual reception between Saturn and Pluto it would be better to try to comprehend its substantial meaning as simply as we can.The simultaneous movement of two planets where one moves in the sign of the sovereignty of another is being called”mutual reception” in astrology.In this case Saturn(ruler of Capricorn) is at the zodiac sign of Scorpio while at the same time Pluto is at the zodiac sign of Capricorn (ruler of Scorpio).These planets co-operate each other in a very intense way which is similar to the conjunction energy aspect.And that is happening because the principles of the zodiac signs and the planets, in a sense, merge acting in concert.
It is also very important to refer to the abilities of these planets because of their heavy and perhaps misunderstanding nature that many times provokes fear to the public and amateur astrologers. I am sure that most of you have read these things many times before but I think it is time again to read again some of them with new meanings and examples so we can understand them better. The meanings of them it could a great list but I will choose only those are important and are necessary of course in order to understand the energy of the mutual reception.
Pluto,Scorpio and the 8th house indeed are being connected to the physical death,birth and rebirth,psychological strength,courage and powerful emotions.However whatever it is hidden and everything is buried and is valuable,but also whatever is underground and is also being connected to drainage too. With raw materials, natural resources such as oil and gold. The stock markets, banking and financial transactions of any kind, security and the tax system, the plutocracy. The property and possessions arising from the cooperation, partnership, marriage. The fear of loss and the need for manipulation. The underground activity and power management. The ruthless underworld, speculation. The cellular structure, genetic diseases and sexually transmitted diseases. The kind of lovemaking, orgasm, proximity and deep emotional commitment. Scientific research, genetics and chemistry.What really Pluto could provoke on the 10th house,at the zodiac sign of Capricorn?
A satisfactory outcome of a safe first approach could arise from simple correlations of these concepts, so that the combination led to an understanding of how to operate the mutual reception Saturn \ Pluto. But the best way to understand such a rare planetary event is to look back in time and to look for the last time what had happened.Thus, the search for ancillary data of recorded history takes us to 1777 and running until 1778, the years when these two planets were there again in mutual reception.
Before I continue wandering in this review, you must have at the corner of your mind that history, like time, are moving in circles and spirals. Events may be similar to that discussed under the (cyclic), but also delete a progressive course (spiral). So, for example, concepts such as democracy were historically negotiated strongly that period of mutual reception, but today is not respectable for democracy to be negotiated. What is currently under renegotiation (Uranus in Aries), is how this democracy is properly applied by government functionaries of (Pluto in Capricorn). If that is being experienced by the Western world is indeed a democracy or if we falter at its theoretical appearance, bending under one unspoken evils of fascism (Uranus square Pluto) that defines the quality of life (Saturn in Scorpio). We are now confident that what we experience, is not actually what we wanted. It is not what we wish, but spurred by the bitterness of frustration, hurry to invest in new beliefs (Neptune in Pisces).
Another aspect that I would like to remember is that any planetary event is called to be expressed according to the environment that dictates the current planetary backdrop. So, in 1777 the two planets were in mutual reception, but Neptune in Virgo was weak, exactly opposite the current position on the sovereignty of Pisces. Then, it was square Neptune in Virgo, with Uranus in the sign of Gemini which had formed the background of that mutual reception like today as the square of Uranus to Pluto, forms our special conditions.
September 1777-January 1778.
As can easily be seen by everyone, the last time Saturn \ Pluto found in mutual reception, not only lasted just five months. But when talking about the influence of slow moving planets, space of five months is not a completely safe time-frame to select a series of significant events (which was not missed at all!) And to ascribe to this few months mutual reception. I think the understanding of political, economic and social context of the time is worth more than the record of some historical events.
That decade of the 18th century, of 70 ‘ had roll with Pluto in Capricorn. The story captures the highlight of the American Revolution. At the same time as England and France were strong. The hostile relations had resulted in a series of wars several times in the 17th century, and it continued into the 18th century. England had to solve the problem of lost colonies in North America and constantly was under a war state.
France, apart from its own colonial issues, it supported one of the toughest in the history of feudal systems of absolute monarchy of the western world. At that time the French people began to be spontaneously organized into small pockets of resistance. Just 11 years later, it would be enough to destroy a crop to bring famine to 2 \ 3 of the population of France. The natural consequence was the revolution. In such wild revolutions in human history, is always involved starvation too. The misery of the people make him react. However, awareness of this gross authoritarian mania they had the system of absolute monarchy that time (Pluto in Capricorn) and led the revolution was the work of Saturn in Scorpio few years earlier. Since the tax system was ruthlessness and greed of the nobility, were brought as a result of the dissatisfaction of the people-really-was miserable. They did not care how people will survive. Does this remind you of something? The same tax system some time ago, led England to break with her own builds in America and brought the American Revolution.
The personal costs of Marie Antoinette made her famous in history for her greed and vanity. And of course for that version says that when people complained about the bread that had nothing to eat, she thought that there was no reason to fuss. So they could eat cake for instance, so what?! I do not know if it is a real fact, if Marie Antoinette had very bad humor or if her enemies had construct it, to give the final blow to her hated profile. However, the time that Saturn was in Scorpio and being in mutual reception with Pluto in the pockets of angry French people, reached the outrageous reputation, of her monthly spending regarding her personal expenses. The news circulated quickly because chasing them (Uranus in Gemini, the third natural house of communication and transport). Information had been leaked of official costing probably the reactive energy power of the bourgeoisie, who had an interest to abolish the monopoly of the nobility in politics. Any attempt to tax reform, facilitating trade and the improvement of living conditions of the hungry people who pay unreasonable taxes (Saturn in Scorpio),was in contrary to the interests of the nobles and landowners in that 2% of the plutocracy that had imposed taxes of extermination
With the help of Uranus in Gemini, the Enlightenment introduced concepts such as equality, individual freedom and justice. Concepts that are based on their top our ideological orientations, as Western civilization. At the mouth of the people entering new phrases containing these concepts and supporting the law feeling of their anger.
Developments in the field of printing, brought a more massive access to the new ideology of good stature in the printed word. The scientific approach and the correctness of logical thought was the check of that time. Until the French Revolution, the nobles did not trade at all. It was only one pop activity. As was inevitable, this created the powerful bourgeoisie of France that time. Along with the forms of ideological and scientific interest (the forerunner of today’s magazines), circulated and periodicals, catalogs, related to what we now call life style. Probably the Marie Antoinette is the beginning of vanity-priestess of the image. The emphasis on luxury and noble competition with the bourgeoisie (the French word «bourgeois», means: a city dweller, the commoner), deepened the righteous wrath of miserable 98%. In the eyes of the people was the personification of the monster that feeds on the blood of their scarce.
The nobles lived locked in a protocol framework introverted life, while around the newly disseminates ideology of enlightenment by leaps and bounds, the collective sense of direction was suffering from a sad lack of inspired vision. The people suffocating from the suffering and bitterness of frustration. Neptune by the Virgo weakness and the square to Uranus, was muddying the landscape dramatically. The bourgeoisie, hated the nobility and simultaneously imitated of the vulgar greed. Does this sound familiar? Hypocrisy, greed, vulgarity and intrigues of power, is one of the grossest expressions of energy that is highlighted by the position of Pluto in Capricorn and Saturn in Scorpio.
What is interesting is that during the five-month mutual reception in the United States of America established the well-known emblem of the dollar “$”, a coin with a leading role in economic power, until nowadays. Besides, do not forget that U.S. start-ups, consisted primarily of the growing bourgeoisie. Migration of the common people in search of a better life, and brought the desire for democracy. Revolutions are made and the bourgeoisie triumphed. And then? …
The mutual reception of Saturn \ Pluto, nowadays, has infinitely a greater dynamic. The depth of the horizon of influence is far greater than the five months of 1777-1778. More than 2.5 years exercising the fundamentally transformative power. Think about what was happening in the world. What concepts had been introduced from the enlightenment. These currently suppressed under the same power of “bourgeoisie” that preserves the “Antoinette s” of our own misery. The exercise of power changes only mask, not the face.
Today, the Middle East (Middle East: A cauldron boils with safety valves closed), very similar to the economic interest colonies of England and France. The peoples of the countries of the Middle East do not seem willing to accept their fate, without giving their battles. Control of oil is a top issue, while the financial system, banks, tax and insurance system states, collapsing one after the other. With Uranus in Aries, squaring Pluto in Capricorn, the environment will be anomalous, but will bring a new beginning. However, the sextiles formed by Saturn \ Pluto compatible with the cooperation and participation of the favorable Neptune from the domination of Pisces, ensuring coordinated willingness, strength and courage, the inspiration for a better world (Neptune in Pisces). The western world has now the experience of history. As stated above, the time is moving cyclically and spirally. If everyone is taught by a single pass of Saturn in the horoscope staff, then we should accept a parameter of our collective experience and our ability to design a better future.
Making reductions in our past, we see that the similarities of human needs – mutatis mutandis-kept unchanged. Now is the time when we see around us the conditions created when people are deprived of the bread. The famine mentioned in the previous section. People then came from the recent experience of enlightenment that changed completely ideological, spiritual and cultural image.
In the Western world today, almost 250 years later, the compulsory education and knowledge is just one click of our computer or a few meters from the nearest bookstore, still seems like we come from an endless, medieval obscurantism. The concentration of wealth in a small percentage of the population, unreasonable exercise of authority and survival deadlocks, are still ahead of us. Global scandals, monopolies of specific companies, political intrigues, secret agreements, conspiracy theories, the media and the blatant exploitation of third world countries, under the policy to exterminate them, are proof that the “bourgeoisie” Failed! It seems that Pluto in Capricorn and Saturn in Scorpio, follow a wise juncture mutual reception, which seems to slow while came over on time. Never eliminate, as a society, the remnants of the Code of noble life and still preserve power badges, printed on bags, shoes and clothes. The Parisian hypocrisy, today is the Mecca of the industry that defines our lives. The luxurious carriages pass in front of impoverished peasants from the pestilence, in the same way that people now dine at a restaurant in the garbage bins, some looking for their next meal. But history has shown that such situations of inequality and injustice, never had a happy ending. Something that is being endorsed by the position of Uranus in Aries.
Pluto in Capricorn, as then, so now, highlights the problem of power and guarantees the mutation structure. Saturn in Scorpio then, as seen today, deepens the problem of sharing wealth and brings to light the failure of our financial system. With this mutual reception, the heart of our universal failure beats deafeningly so that everyone could hear the arrhythmia’s. The model of that better world that was designed then, now closes the circle. The nature of the signs and planets, leaves no room for any kind of lightness. The climate will slowly and thoughtfully weighs will seek the resources of experience and knowledge. Till now the negotiable concepts defined then as equality, democracy, justice, freedom and religious tolerance, bent under their impracticable speculative. The redefinition is inevitable.
The almost three years of mutual reception, will not be an easy time. At the site of the world, many things have to be made and certainly will not be all fun. What is gratifying is the aim and our new ability to understand serious political, economic and cultural environment. To find the lost essence of things. It is time destruction and reconstruction. Let’s just hope above everything that we will avoid violence and that if you do use it, it will keep such a measure, which leaves room for reconstruction. We can never be absolutely sure of the type of destructive war material we have accumulated on the planet.
What we have lost, generously Neptune has given to us from the domination of Pisces, just turn to his benevolence. The wisdom of the universe, even through the most difficult global-planet circumstances, always leave a window with a view, and this time the window is exactly what we are missing. Hope, faith, inspired vision, the brotherhood and the ability of self-sacrifice, self-sacrifice for the common good. Compassion, empathy. No other planetary position in the current astrological scene does not offer this kind of therapeutic solace in our collective chagrin.
We are able to coordinate with this-sulfur-energetic vibration and heal our soul to the refuge of spirituality. Treatment starts from the unit and ultimately expressed in total. At the threshold of the Aquarian age, the gregarious behavior, violence, cruelty, and all failed recipes of the past, is not a wise choice. The problem is there, the depth of our refusal to see it, but we’ll see (Saturn in Scorpio). The “talent” of Neptune to envision the next several years will give meaning to our spiritual direction and we should know that what we envision, forming what we may live. What we envision is the one that will give meaning to the cooperation of Saturn \ Pluto.
Somewhere here ends my attitude toward this rare mutual reception, though after everything mentioned above, you still have the curiosity of the impact of this global economic situation on a personal level, then you can read the following section, with some basic interpretative guidelines. Even so, find the time to think or make while driving, while performing simple routine activities and through a deepening your associations, give your own interpretation. Identify your personal understanding of the global scene. The in-depth understanding makes astrology, a frivolous pastime, a useful tool.
Saturn and Pluto had formed a sextile aspect on Dec. 26 to 9 degrees, then will form another one on March 8, 2013 at the 11th degree and for one last time on September 21, 2013 on the eighth degrees. The period around these dates is the one most likely to express positive energy cooperation between the two planets. For those who are concerned with this aspect, i.e. they have their rising ascendant, lights (Moon \ Sun) or personal planets are harmoniously combined, there will be some benefit. For all other power or energy of the useful mutation resulting from the collaboration of the planets in the houses and working on the issues they meet.
