Since last December, we've seen record-size protests in parallel play to military parades of gleaming missiles; social justice campaigns versus social media swagger (and slander). With two such dramatic planets in opposition, the division has been drastic and extreme…and that may be putting it mildly.
This Thursday marks the final installment of this combustible cosmic series. The dizzying developments—on the world stage and in your own personal life—could finally materialize into something that makes sense. But given the unpredictable nature of the planets involved, the outcome could be something quite unexpected.
Also on Thursday, enigmatic Pluto rouses from his annual retrograde that began on April 20. Like a cranky toddler waking up from a nap, this about-face (called a "station" in astrospeak) might leave us all feeling a little out of sorts all week. What's real and what's a ruse? And who is truly loyal to us? That might feel unclear near Thursday, so don't rush to judge anyone's motives.
Tap Pluto's sleuthing skills and do your detective work—which could take a little more digging than expected. With Pluto midway through his 2008 to 2024 tour of Capricorn, corporations and banks continue to be under the gun, evolving and fluctuating in their practices. The patriarchy is also Capricorn's domain, and with Pluto snapping back into action, some clandestine activity might be exposed in the days ahead.
On a personal note, Pluto's backspin may have left some of us stuck in darker thoughts. As the dwarf planet shifts into drive for the coming seven months, we'll feel more motivated to tackle those tough sticking points, addictive tendencies, and compulsive behaviors. Although a sexy cat-and-mouse game can be fun, some semblance of transparency will be necessary in order to start building trust.
