America: the Neptune-Pluto Cycle of Crime and Fantasy

Modern Humanity and Uranus-Neptune-Pluto in the US

by Jude Cowell

April 16, 2021: Approximately every 492 years, a Great Conjunction forms between gaseous giant Neptune and the distant planet of Pluto, as seen from Earth. The last such conjunction, three actually, is the current cycle and seems particularly significant to the United States of America because 115 years later our radical 'totem planet', Uranus (@8Gem55 on July 4, 1776), cosmically received the Neptune-Pluto energies of 1891/1892, a major, life-altering transit if there ever was one:

1. August 2, 1891 Neptune-Pluto @8Gem38

2. November 5, 1891 Neptune-Pluto @8Gem19

3. April 30, 1892 Neptune-Pluto @7Gem42

UPDATE August 5, 2021: With Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn now sextile by transit I'm adding here a link to a recent Salon article that closely concerns the topic of this post: Today's Republican Party is a Political Crime Family and We Know Who the Godfather Is. Yeah, we all know - it's He Who Shall Not Be Named, sometimes identified as Unindicted Co-conspirator, sometimes as Individual One.

Significantly, Neptune-Pluto also times the Horoscope of Modern Humanity via the Total Solar Eclipse of April 26, 1892 in the 2 Old North Saros Series @7Tau05 (where transit Uranus has recently played). An eclipse in this series last repeated in 2018 @21Cancer conjunct Castor (keywords: sudden fame or loss, murder, mental illness, crippling of limbs--A. Louis).

So during the 1891/92 era, a midpoint picture repeatedly formed by US natal Uranus which catalyzed, even electrified, potentials for: 'peculiar discoveries, the supernatural, unusual catastrophes, aberrant behavior, fantasy, mystical and/or adventurous experiences, weakened power, hyersensitivity, courageous acts, unorthodox ways of changing reality, extreme drug use, impersonal attitudes or lack of concern toward destruction or about anti-social activities, occult interests, obsessions, loss, manias, self-torment, lack of willpower to maintain health, treachery, ESP, religious messages' (Tyl; Ebertin: Munkasey).

Obviously the tendency toward 'extreme drug use' was and continues to be furthered by Neptune-Pluto's relationship to drug trafficking made accessible via the planetary pair's association with underworld crime syndicates which we nowadays often label 'organized crime' (also shown in horoscopes by corporate syndicate Cupido, The Family). Perhaps you'll agree that in this 'New Millennium' a rising level of organized crime rules and disrupts most henhouses including those in the USA. The prevalence of racketeering contaminates and ruins everything.

Collective Unconscious Meets Hidden Forces and Propaganda: Changes Result

We may wish to consider the two karmic transits involved: transit Neptune to US natal Uranus, and transit Pluto to US natal Uranus, plus, let's add a few historical events of 1891 and 1892 in order to gain a wider perspective on the historical cycles within cosmic cycles of Neptune and Pluto. With these transits, societal changes occurred with a sense of confusion and disorientation mixed with unrealistic exectations, and ideals were in conflict with technical and economic considerations (Neptune). With Pluto, planet of hidden powers, individual freedoms were affected by technological advances yet to some extent, the US government was still subjugated to the will of We The People. As you know, further changes have flipped the relationship so that generally speaking, the People now fear the government instead of how it was intended to be - the other way around. Obviously, this fear plays a major part in our rising levels of violence in the US and the extensive hoarding of guns by those sensitive to such paranoia. Add debilitating mental health conditions, plus, oppressive social circumstances and a dangerous mixture is created suitable for being 'triggered' into action.

Now I don't have on-hand horoscopes of any of the three Neptune-Pluto Conjunctions of 1891 or 1892 but in case you haven't seen it, here is a bi-wheel of the upcoming transit of Neptune in Pisces opposing US natal Neptune in Virgo on May 1, 2021 (within orb for a while now) which shows that America has existed long enough to be graced by the opportunity to amend our Neptunian issues and morph our society into a more compassionate stance:

So in closing, let's quote from Michael Munkasey's assessment of the Neptune-Pluto duo in Politics and Business expressed in Hegelian Dialectic form:

Thesis: creating new ideals for the power bases within entrprises; calls for new measures for protection from natural disasters; new ideas in waste processing; pollution control; mass medical care, or psychiatry.

Antithesis: controls over centers of political power; organized crime; activities for plans involving mutual destruction; subversion within security agencies; breakdowns in health, medical, or social care. (Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets.) #ad

Note that in certain cases, "new ideals" have resulted in a rise of organized crime running and ruining the show.

Note to our country's legal eagles: please dust off that RICO Act!

It's Generational: The MarchForOurLives Activists

Stars Over Washington is pleased to present a new Generational Astrology post by millennial astrologer Kevin Estes, published here with the author's express permission:

Stoneman Douglas High School Activists - The Epitome Of Pluto in Sagittarius and Neptune in Aquarius:

Emma Gonzalez. David Hogg. Sarah Chadwick. Cameron Kasky. Jaclyn Corin.

These are the names of just five of the survivors of the Stoneman Douglas High School Massacre on February 14, 2018 who have become gun control activists over the last month. At the start of the year, they were typical teenagers, and we're now at the end of March and it's gotten to the point where they have been featured on national TV, their Twitter accounts are now verified, and they now have their own Wikipedia articles! This basically means that they have become celebrities overnight, while still going through the grind of homework, term papers, school projects, tests, and final exams, while likely going through their first relationships as well!

And to be honest, they're all handling it very well! I couldn't ever picture myself handling all that pressure. Props.

What makes these teenage activists really special is that they AREN'T doing this for the purpose of becoming household names and getting their five minutes of fame. They are doing this because it's the right thing to do, quite simply because nobody should go to school with the thought that this could be their last day on earth in the back of their minds, as well as the fact that many of their friends and teachers died that day, so they want to make sure that nobody else has to go through what they have since that day. What is also quite fascinating is the similarities that these teenagers have with their grandparents.

If you're familiar with generational astrology, everybody born from 1999-2007 has Pluto in Sagittarius and Neptune in Aquarius, along with most people born in 1998 and half of the people born in 2008, meaning that all of these students share these energies. This results in a generation who not only envisions (Neptune) a world that is in the best interests of everyone (Aquarius), but they also desire absolute freedom and have more open minded world views (Pluto in Sagittarius). This is a fire sign/air sign combination, much like their grandparents in the Pluto in Leo and Neptune in Libra generation from 1942-1957. These were the people known for burning their draft cards in protest of the Vietnam War, and were a large portion of the crowd at Woodstock, so both these fire/air generations share activist roots. However, while many of the "hippies" eventually gave in to the status quo during the Neptune in Capricorn era (1984-1998), when materialism, greed, capitalism, and corporatism were glamorized (many of our current politicians, including president Trump, are Pluto Leo/Neptune Libra), Sagittarius isn't nearly as superficial as Leo (Leo's shadow side is showing off and selfishness, which is why they're known as the "me generation"), and Aquarius has an edge that Libra doesn't (Libra's shadow side is refusing to "rock the boat"), so they aren't as likely to give in to the old, outdated ways of doing things.

Another notable fact is that since these students were born before 2003, they also have Uranus in Aquarius, which allows for a tendency to ACT based on their generational vision that the older generations just don't have (similar to how the Uranus and Pluto in Virgo generation were a major reason for the technological expansion in the 90s and 2000s, as Aquarius, which Uranus rules, and Virgo are both associated with technology). And continuing with the pattern shared with their Baby Boomer grandparents, the Pluto Leo/Neptune Libras who were old enough to be drafted in the Vietnam War had Uranus in the air sign of Gemini. None of this is a coincidence.

Why is the status quo changing now, when things like school shootings have been a common occurrence for years now? Simple. Pluto has been in the sign of Capricorn since 2008 (and will be there until 2024), at the start of the Great Recession, signalling the transformation of government and big business, which has become increasingly obvious with the Trump/Russia and Brexit fiascos dominating the airwaves the last 15 months. The last time Pluto was in Capricorn was the period of the American Revolution, which is not a coincidence.

When Pluto was in Sagittarius (1995-2008), 9/11 showed the dark side of organized religion, and when Pluto was in Scorpio (1983-1995), HIV/AIDS showed the consequences of "free sex". Neptune has been in the sign of Pisces since 2011, which correlates with the spirituality and compassion culture that is prevalent. Neptune in Aquarius (1998-2012) was the technology culture, which is why these teenagers are known for their addiction to technology, most notably cell phones. While everybody is effected by the culture of the times in one way or another, people born under Neptune and Pluto transits carry these energies for the rest of their lives, just like that of their Sun signs, Moon signs, Mercury/Venus/Mars signs, etc. For example, Pluto in Scorpio and Neptune in Capricorn is why "Millennials" are known for their tattoos and piercings (Scorpio), while coming off as "entitled" (Capricorn), when their role is to dissolve (Neptune) the status quo, which can make them come off as entitled to people who aren't aware of the astrological forces that guide people.

And as I've mentioned before, the truth about our political system and how it works is coming to the surface under this Pluto in Capricorn transit, and as shown by their behavior as of late, the GOP politicians and political commentators are very scared. As they should be, because the future of the Republican Party looks very bleak, and not just because of the brave activism of these teenagers, as the Mueller investigation and Stormy Daniels scandal have tainted the already lackluster Trump presidency, which is known for a tax plan that heavily benefits the wealthy at the expense of the poor, the passing of steel and aluminum tariffs which will damage free trade (a major part of the GOP platform), as well as consistently threatening war with North Korea, while pushing the idea of a very expensive border wall between the US and Mexico that won't likely come to fruition for obvious reasons. Absolutely nothing positive has happened since Trump took office! With the Republican Party likely to be forever known as traitors in the near future, it's very likely that they will never win another election again unless they completely change their platform to become more compassionate and inclusive, and the Pluto Sagittarius/Neptune Aquarius generation starting to come of age only furthers the need for the GOP to do that. These activists will be eligible to vote in 2020, despite it being highly unlikely that Trump will be in office then.

To put it frankly, these teenage activists are the epitome of the Pluto in Sagittarius/Neptune in Aquarius generation, and are a necessary catalyst for positive change, resulting in a society that's in the best interests of everyone, rather than a wealthy few, which it has been since Reagan's presidency during Neptune in Capricorn, and only lately, with Pluto in Capricorn, have we been suffering the consequences of the greed and materialism that became glamorized in the 80s and 90s during that transit. This greed of GOP politicians has been exposed as a result of their activism, as they are STILL fighting them, solely because they are owned by the NRA, which means they're choosing money and power over children's lives, which is a very unnerving thought, and only adds more fuel to the fire in the midterm elections, which were already in jeopardy before this as a result of Trump's treason and ineptitude.
