Me? I'm with Jessica

For some time on my blogs I have occasionally mentioned transiting Pluto's effects as it traverses early to mid-Capricorn and opposes America's natal Venus, Jupiter, and Sun. Using an orb of plus or minus 5 degrees, transformative Pluto opposes US natal Sun (leadership; the presidency) @13Can+, depending on which birth hour you use for our nation on July 4, 1776, and we see that titanic power struggles abound in Washington DC. Also involved is the association of astrological Pluto with oppression (ex: 'lording it over others'), mind control and propaganda, and extreme wealth and riches hidden in secret places.
But let's not give a pass to Mr. Hades' links with the global Underworld Crime Syndicate, 'The Family', the International Banking Cartel ('City of London', etc), "The Octopus," total surveillance and spying, or even to the vicious character flaw of committing rape, a topic which Republicans struggle to define while obstructing legislation meant to protect women. Yes, Pluto is a sexy dude, which is more than can be said for the Todd Akinses amongst the GOP--even if it were appropriate.
As I type, tr Pluto sits at 9Cap27 which sextiles Saturn in sexy, occult, secretive Scorpio, quincunxes Jupiter Rx in Gemini (Direct Station @6Gem19 on January 30, 2013), and separates temporarily from its Cardinal Square with progressive Uranus in Aries, the sign where Ebertin described The Awakener as radical "Utopians" and zealots--you know, the ones in Congress who intend to take America's finances to the brink of default in a couple of months to make their ideological points while they play chicken with the 'faith and credit of the US' as they did in Summer 2011 for the sake of power-grabbing and thus handing our nation its first-ever credit downgrade. Those Utopians.
And they did it and will do it while pretending to care about America!
Wish I could say more today but with blogging time reduced this week due to family responsibilities, I am very glad to find that expert astrologer Jessica Murray has masterfully addressed the condition and events relating to Pluto opposing US natal Sun and other important transits in her comprehensive way on her blog at Daykeeper Journal so check it out if you haven't.
As you may be aware, the UK's natal Sun @10Cap opposes US natal Sun so tr Pluto has now conjoined London's leadership while opposing Washington's, a difficult transit that was on the other boot 100 years ago!
