When Pluto-Chiron conjunct: a New Cycle of Plutocracy

by Jude Cowell

December 9, 2021

Today, as Stars Over Washington meanders toward a total of 6,000 published posts since 2005, I confess to having no idea whether or not the DC Horoscope of the December 30, 1999 Conjunction of Pluto and Chiron, the Plutocracy duo, has turned up here before. With a near-60-year orbit, the mighty duo's rendezvous at the close of 1999 pointed toward the New Millennium and marked an important beginning of a significant new cycle in the realms of mass consciousness, aka, the Collective Unconscious. Subversive forces were stirring, rather like the waking of a fearsome dragon.

However, slight mention of the powerful duo was made in a previous SO'W post so here's a brief excerpt with mild edits for clarity:

Pluto conjunt Chiron: well, you know how I feel about this conjunction of corporatism, nationalism, fascism, nazism, communism, socialism, and other ~isms including racism. {Barbara Hand} Clow says this conjunction is very strong and is an evolutionary vortex, and that the house position defines the nature of the transmutive force.

Naturally, exploitation and primal violence also shelter under the Pluto-Chiron umbrella and in the last few years - the second decade of the New Millennium - we've seen a 'blossoming" of the negative potentials of Pluto-Chiron when their energies express together, sometimes violently, as wealthy 'elites' opportunistically take advantage of other people in order to protect their earthly thrones, increase their fortunes, and selfishly promote their objectives of power, control, and manipulation (over those of us who manage to stay alive to be further exploited!). Sad to say, the collapse of civilization itself is a longterm goal of these destructive social tinkerers - psychopaths, all, with evil on their minds and a success-at-any-cost attitude.

Oh all right, I'll quit fussing for now because, after all, you know who they are and what they do. You know their crimes and their guilt although often they perpetrate anti-societal crimes and outrages in the plutonian shadows - as you see, the duo is posited within the hidden, unconscious 12th house of Politics, Large Institutions such as Congress, and Back Room Deals. And of course, the 12th house is the favored domicile of watery Neptune, karmic planet of fraud, deception, speculation, fantasy, and loss - just a plutocrat's cup of tea!

So if you wish, check out (and compare with other charts) the DC Horoscope of the Pluto-Chiron Conjunction of December 30, 1999 for details about Plutocracy, plutocrats, and more of the negative societal conditions their greed and hatred creates while appreciating how the 5 South Solar Eclipse of December 4, 2021 (themes: 'benefits' and 'good news') 'hit' the 1999 Conjunction (spotlighting its qualities and activities).

Plus, you may wish to consider the mixed bag of exposure and criminality that's now in progress of being spilled and leaked in Washington DC as the duo's 10th house Moon's Sabian Symbol becomes more visible to the entire world: "A Gang of Robbers in Hiding":

US Mars Return: early April 2021

April 6, 2021: No matter which of multiple US Horoscopes I check, our US Mars Return (19 - 23 Gemini) occurs this very week. And with each Mars Return to natal degree perfecting within a day or two of one another, the same applying aspects in each horoscope are formed by Mars: square Neptune in Pisces, then trine Jupiter in Aquarius.

Of course, the first aspect echoes America's 1776 Mars-Neptune square which emphasizes its potentials and suggests our current pandemic conditions, among other things. According to Alan Oken, the energies within a Mars-Neptune square are "quite difficult to handle" and are often "self-destructive" as well as "cruel." Apparently "strange" impulses may be entertained and need controlling, and of course, if you've read SO'W before you may remember that I often give this square "misdirected or confused motivations" and "fog of war" labels.

Additionally, missed targets are suggested as well as a welcomed potential for inspired actions. Yet naturally when Neptune is involved so is the Collective Unconscious (the primary reason the square's energies are 'difficult to handle'); meanwhile, Oken gives the Mars-Neptune square the title, The Obessive Impulse." Plus, we know that US Mars in Mercury-ruled Gemini can be restless, quarrelsome, ready for action, versatile, duplicitous, witty, sharply critical, and have a tendency to scatter its energies - and Mars is the planet of energy as our Mars Return begins a new two-year cycle of activity. So for the next two years (approximately), US natal Mars will carry the energies of the square to Neptune in Pisces (as opposed to our 1776 square to Neptune in Virgo, a Neptune-opposing-Neptune transit - a time of racial and religious persecution, and a generational clash of ideals vs ideals. Then to these difficulties we must add the Mars-Neptune tendency toward contagion and infection for we deal with them every day. Double Neptune influences with our national Mars suggests a deep need for prayer and/or meditation concerning our actions and motivations on a personal level as well as in government.

Then on a brighter note, we have the Mars-Jupiter trine suggesting a parallel period of improvement when risk-taking is likely to pay off and many areas of life receive favorable outcomes including the political, legal, and social realms. Even civil government can prosper under a Mars-Jupiter trine and most Americans are more than ready for major improvements as fortunate decisions are made by capable organizers. Yet propaganda remains a problem under Mars-Jupiter vibes even as successful solutions are found. Current sore-loser activities of a violent nature along with the tendency to blame the wrong culprits may be ascribed to Mars-Neptune blockages and frustrations of the square.

Therefore, this brand new US Mars Return period will contain a typical blend of positive and negative conditions and events and although it's necessary to add other planetary factors for a fuller view of the period, I hope this partial picture of Life in America over the next two years may be of some use to you, dear reader, as you plan ahead.

Ask Saturn: Rising Authoritarianism Can Be Defeated!

Have you noticed that soul-crushing, anti-democracy authoritarianism is on the rise across the globe? Donald Trump in the White House is America's primary symptom of its Saturnian paternalism as we find in the current picture of transit Pluto @18Capricorn hitting the Uranus-Neptune conjunction degree (1993) which times a certain midpoint picture--Uranus-Neptune = Pluto: 'the big picture must be followed, very little option to do otherwise' (Tyl)--and this, triggering the word picture for 18 Capricorn: POLITICAL POWER...negative expression: smug or strong-armed paternalism' (The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, Jones).

Of course, authoritarianism has been rising in America since before Trump entered the White House and one astrological timer I noticed years ago was the December 30, 1999 Great Conjunction of Pluto and Chiron, one of the astrological pairs of plutocracy, oppression, racism, and various other -isms such as Authoritarianism, Communism, Socialism, Bolshevikism, Capitalism--all terms invented by man to promote one oppressive scheme or another---and to divide the populace against itself.

Thing is, the 1999 Pluto-Chiron conjunction occurred @12Sagittarius which is the Ascendant degree in America's 'Sibly' horoscopes (July 4, 1776 5:00 pm LMT or a few minutes later--I use 5:09 pm which places 00Libra at MC and Aries Point at IC). This oppressive conjunction of primal violence helped to usher in the New Millennium. (View the chart when the Trump-Clinton debate of October 19, 2016 was timed by a new two-year cycle of brutal Mars and Pluto melding their powers at the South Node of the New Millennium).

And yet there is good news! For there are ways of countering, even stopping (Saturn) authoritarianism in its hoof-shaped tracks as someone at The Guardian advises us:

Authoritarianism is making a comeback. Here's the time-tested way to defeat it. "Tyrants' tactics require the consent of large numbers of people. The first lesson, then, is not to obey in advance."

Another sign post of authoritarianism (and the tyranny of plutocracy) infecting America in 2017 is our national Saturn exalted in Libra (14:48 in 1776), sign of the Scales of Justice, which by progression, turned retrograde in Mars-Pluto-ruled Scorpio (where our SP Saturn remains) in 1996 during the second presidential term of Bill Clinton whose tenure included impeachment and thus the undermining of the Executive Branch through the eager auspices of the Republican Party.

So now, in 2017, will the Democratic Party return the 'favor' and oppose the extreme authoritarianism of austerity-promoting Republicans and their mascot Donald Trump? Probably not with the nerve and verve needed (although they did stand up last night concerning the secret Trumpcare bill). But it requires We The People to defeat it by participating in this democracy (such as it is) using the peaceful tactics mentioned in the article linked above!

Now, in case you haven't seen it before, below is the horoscope of the Pluto-Chiron Conjunction of December 30, 1999 (@11Sag22--two esoteric numbers x two!) with my study notes penned on (please enlarge). You'll want to consider that Pluto-Chiron = Moon-Neptune and several other planetary factors including the Mother of All Eclipses of August 11, 1999 @18Leo in the 1 North Saros Series in this chart's 8th house of Corporatism, Big Money, and the Occult--and 1 North repeats upon this chart's 9th cusp on August 21, 2017 @29Leo, a critical degree--The Great American Eclipse--and I assert that there continues to be some weird plutocratic timing going on and we can expect global government (aka, a new world order) to be termed 'necessary' to solve the world's problems (which international bankers and their handmaidens, the political elite, created):

The duration of the Pluto-Chiron cycle is approximately 60 years in length and relates to "mass currents of consciousness--the collective unconscious, the racial, cellular, molecular, atomic, and subatomic levels of reality. The beginning of the cycle...signals the up welling of an initially unconscious impetus seeking expression as a historically necessary transmutation." (Chiron, Richard Nolle). (My italics.)

Also note that, among other things, 'Moon-Neptune' = mass un-consciousness, or, the Collective Unconscious. And thus, globalists have many of us thinking on a subliminal level that authoritarian global government is inevitable. It is not.

Also in August a Lunar Eclipse @15AQ.

Nation in between Trapeze Bars ~ The Collective Shift of Consciousness ~

Good news! Susan Herskowitz, The Uranian Astrologer, has sent me a heads-up on her latest presentation which concerns the Collective Shift of Consciousness we're all feeling as Neptune sails through her own sign of murky Pisces. As one example, you may recall events of 2009, the first year of Barack Obama's presidency, when transit Neptune melted all over US natal Moon in Aquarius, transit Jupiter joined in thereby increasing the nebulous, fraudulent effects, and a majority of the American public dreamed that the signs of 'rock star' Obama's Hope and Change were really really going to come true. But first, taxpayers had to bail out Big Banks and other corporate num-nums because they speculated with other people's money.

Okay, I'll hush for now about politics and theft! And I'll happily turn you over to Susan who provides an insightful overview of current unstable conditions within humanity's Collective Unconscious. Here is, Nation in between Trapeze Bars ~ The Collective Shift of Consciousness:
