Living with a first-time experience of a Pluto in Capricorn transit is definitely not a picnic. We Americans are finding out how sobering it can be. When America was born in 1776 the planet Pluto was in Capricorn. It takes about 240-250 years for it to return to its starting point. So, here we are back again taking a look at how we have done since we began in 1776 and forcing us to deconstruct and create anew. It is painful, it is exhausting and it is relentless. It started in 2008 (remember the financial crash and its aftermath) and it won’t let go until 2024. Although it affects the entire world, it is particularly zeroed in on the United States due to the planetary alignment at the moment of our beginning. We are now in the royal cross hairs of the sniper.
