The Sun is the Light of Consciousness or Awareness. In Virgo, the Sun places your focus upon the routines, habits, rituals and other activities that allow you to preserve or maintain your life as you know it. This quality of preservation can be extended to other people, the Environment, and so on – bringing Virgo the quality of ‘service-provider’ that is commonly associated with her energy. I’ve spoken of the Virgo-as-Priestess and the many stereotypes surrounding this energy here for those who want a re-cap:http://wp.me/p4OUNS-5i
Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn is transforming our relationship with the super-conscious, and society’s definition of ‘success, achievement, authority, power and legacy’. It is the Transformational Agent that moves us deep to our Core, often through the modality of Crisis. The Crises that tend to occur are located within the Psyche, as we react to others, based on our projections of their behavior. Through Pluto’s transit in Capricorn, we will all have powerfully re-defined our understanding of Why We Are Here (Purpose), and what we leave behind for future generations (Legacy).
When both the Sun and Pluto Retrograde trine, what we get is a powerful bolt of energy between our conscious awareness and our deepest, ‘darkest’ (in the sense of being being hidden) secret selves and its relationship with power, success and the superego.
A lot that was hidden is going to come to light now. Many Shadow Sides thrown into the Light of Day. With Virgo, we are now called to judge Capricorn. Is this what we want to leave behind? Is this how we choose to Build our collective Future? What to we draw our Boundaries and keep out of our Space, and what do we integrate within It?
We’re going to reject what no longer serves our idea of Purpose. And we’re going to find ways to manifest even the grandest, most powerful, most taboo (in some cases) visions and goals with the methodical, detail-oriented energy of Virgo – as long as they align with your sense of Purpose. You may find unexpected resources and support from VIPs in your sector (Capricorn), provided you’ve been doing your homework and crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s (Virgo).
Remember that Virgo and Capricorn are both expressions of Earth energy, but in different modalities. Virgo is Mutable – it can shift, it can mould and adapt, it can pay attention to the detail. Capricorn is Cardinal – it seeks to make something pivotal, and transformative – something that points to a new direction (in contrast to a Fixed sign that seeks to preserve).
Ideas or plans that seeks to engage the Earth, and restructure our relationship to it (as we have been in a deeply unbalanced relationship with Her since the Industrial Revolution) will be well placed at this time.
The Spiritual Facilitators among us will see the Strength and Power of the Earth-Crone and find ways to express her energy in some form of facilitation or connection. Career opportunities linking different paths of service will open up for many at this time, particularly through those already in an established position of authority or power.
Drop the ego, and accept a hand from a higher-up. For those who are already ‘established’ you may want to reach out to those who are still ‘on their way’.
Enjoy this powerful, transformative, pulse of energy. Resist the temptation to waste it on the unfruitful act of being judgmental, or seeking to control another.
Blessings and Love to All,
