Dear Friend and Reader:
As Saturn cleared the last degree of Virgo and made its ingress to Libra yesterday, I've been watching the world with extra curiosity; and I've been observing myself in the process of watching. It was a strange week, though I think that many of us have actually taken a step. Others are struggling. The pressure is on. Saturn is applying in a square to Pluto, which might feel like a crunch, like a system breakdown/rebuild, and/or a series of long overdue personal turning points showing up.
Square and opposition are among the aspects that say bend in the road. Pluto in Capricorn, for its part, is doing its best to revamp antiquated systems and will be doing so for a long time. It may not be pleasant as some of them are torn down. Note: we have never consciously lived through Pluto in Capricorn. The last time it was here (18th century) was before the discovery (1930).
Saturn, pushing on Pluto, is now ramping up this theme. In the spring, other mighty planets join the alignment in what I'll be referring to here as the cardinal T-square
. This is not your ordinary turn left at the light. We're talking about various forms of personal and system overload, and the need to develop a new approach to dealing with it. The current popular approach is to shut down, often because no other options seem viable.
The Aries Point is involved, which suggests a series of personal intersections with large cultural subject matter
. Saturn is now opposing the Aries Point and Pluto is square it. The problem with this notion of a contact point between the widest themes of society and the most private ones is that most of us don't experience ourselves as part of anything bigger than ourselves. More often, we feel alienated from most of what is around us. We wonder often enough if we belong in our personal relationships, perhaps the most modest definition of 'something larger than ourselves'.

Weekly Horoscope for Friday, October 30, 2009, #790 - BY ERIC FRANCIS
(June 21- July 22)
You've been getting the message to clean house for a while. I mean this in the physical sense. It's time to open space, to clear closets, and to make sure that there is a relationship between functionality and aesthetics. There is something in your psychic space that wants to be opened up as well, and this involves your concept of where relationship meets security. You place a lot of emphasis on relationship as a form of security, and it has not always been dependable. You may be too easygoing here. You tend to be emotionally flexible, but this does something strange: once you feel you've been taken advantage of, you can become way too self-centered for anyone's benefit. These tendencies don't originate with you, but you do have the power to change them. Be gentle on yourself and those you love as you clear them out and update your files.
(Oct. 23- Nov. 22)
In so many ways, you are the unstoppable force. Yet it's not usually easy for you to direct your energy confidently, often because you are at the mercy of your emotions, your fears and a peculiar reluctance that does not have a name. Lots of your energy goes into working out emotional details of relationships, though this is directly a reaction to the fears you haven't quite identified. Now more than ever you may wonder if you're a slave to these fears, but I would propose that this is a time to liberate yourself from them. There will be rewards for doing so, because you know you cannot aspire to your highest goals, or even your more modest goals, unless you face a vast unknown within yourself. You may notice that this feels less daunting and more like an open invitation.
(Feb. 19- March 20)
You may still feel like you're swimming against the tide. However, Saturn's move into Libra will give you some traction. It will do so if you focus on agreements and commitments. It may feel boring, and you may feel like this kind of approach to life lacks imagination or limits your potential. My sense is that this emphasis will have the opposite effect -- to give you a basis for progress; an organizing principle. This involves people, and the kind of people you will harmonize with are those who are not only unafraid of commitment, but rather those who thrive on the stuff. Though the notion of commitment is vague to some, think of it as mutual contact and awareness relating to specific objectives. This will become the conduit for so much more that is on its way.
