Some ideas on Pluto in Capricorn and 2012


So we’ve had the first hit, from around new year’s eve up until a couple of weeks back. Several aspects of what it means, Pluto in Capricorn, have already shown their first, subtle glimpses. Since Pluto is now back again in Sagittarious, until later on in November, we can reconsider our stance towards those passing Jupiter related issues (as the ruler of Sagittarius) which we’ve had a chance to ponder over and integrate into our collective framework, since about 1992. The overindulging, celebrity-worshipping credit-card-spenders compulsively feeding on cultural and culinary junk food, as well as the Viagra-popping whore-humpers earning big bucks under the magic wings of multinational corporations will both have to cut down quite a bit on their life styles. The learning outcome, according to modern Astrology, will be for us to be stripped bare of any illusions and hopes [JUPITER] which do not adhere to the ultimate, naked truth at this time and age [PLUTO]. We’re asked to display a healthy, mature attitude towards our vision of growth [JUPITER] and this way understand our actual role in what we commonly perceive as our fate [PLUTO]. Any over-inflated ego might easily burst like a bubble, leaving behind the bleakness of what is left without fake, glitter and ‘fame’.

This streamlining of excesses during the next couple of months will pave the way neatly for what is about to come once Pluto will finally start its full journey through Capricorn. Capricorn’s ruler, Saturn, is an Astrological symbol for our concept of reality, of the framework, the perception of time passing. It also stands for our internal fabric, the wiring in our brain as well as the molecular structure of our DNA. Everything which we perceive as the visible, tangible reality around us, is traditionally associated with Saturn (it is apparently the furthest away Planet which we can still see with our flesh eyes). Saturn is also The System, the political / social structure. Psychology, the mechanics of our day-to-day interactions, is therefore also a Saturn related issue. Boundaries are Saturn. The skin as the interface between Me and You is also Saturn related, as well as the bones, the structure we stand on. To express the planetary transit in a nutshell we could say that Pluto would probe into our understanding of reality [SATURN] and squeeze out the essence of what we need to do [PLUTO] in order to keep growing as a human society [PLUTO, SATURN]. Part of the truth is that everyone is connected with everyone else, we’re all in the same boat – namely a planet which can go, from time to time, through some really serious trouble. Whilst at the same time our brains are making this all up, aren’t they, inexplicably tuned into the ‘holo-movement’ of what we have come to call the Universe (according to the ingenious Quantum Physicist / Philosopher David Bohm – 1).

Let’s try and coin this Pluto / Saturn constellation into more practical terms: All our defence mechanisms to face the truth about ourselves and other people [SATURN] will be ruthlessly disintegrated [PLUTO]. How will this happen? Through the public awareness that Psychological Literacy is paramount in order to live a healthy and balanced life – not money, status, guns or religions. Because at the end of the day what we call ‘our reality’ are simply those people around us, how they treat us and see us and how we ourselves feel about them. The eventual insight into our unhappiness – the psycho-mechanics of it – will compel us to get a grip on the reasons why our ‘life scripts’ keep running the way how they do (as one of the true heroes of modern psycho-therapy, Eric Berne, calls the emotional patterns set in place – through the mother’s breast, the family bathroom and the dinner table – all before we even reach the age of two – 2).

Where does this lead us? It would point exactly at the ‘collective rise of consciousness’ as the more serious predictive sources would usually claim. And as a consequence the breakdown of any too-rigid frameworks (corporate / religious / political) incapable to cope with this ever accelerating speed of collective growth. Through gaining psychological / emotional literacy we would have a chance to heal inside [MOON], work through our insecurities, anger and pain, whilst we increasingly feel the need to do ‘our own thing’ [SUN], whatever that means to us, in our sadly too-short life. A lot has to do with regaining the freedom to do what we should according to what our heart really tells us. Failing it would result in an increase of pain [SATURN] as the deterioration of our core potential [PLUTO] continues. In a climate of emotional maturity feelings like jealousy will increasingly come across as pathetic. There’s no one to blame for any painful buttons being pushed on our fragile emotional space-suits. We have to let go of our invalid suits, get naked, and all of a sudden we’ll be really happy even under the cheapest, shabbiest of duvets. Instead of running around headlessly to compensate with money the constant craving for a piece of meat (men) or to meet somebody special (women) we feel it is alright to accept the truth that we’re all alone in this life as soon as we can relax and actually enjoy it.

And yet, Psychology is of course not the highest plane of what we perceive as the Ultimate Reality. There are many planes, many angles, many dimensions. Each of us has different ones and they furthermore change all the time. Preferably our planes are supposed to be constantly rising so everything makes more sense as we look down on our past growth patterns and become able to clearly see the many others around us. We need to subscribe to beliefs and values which are as much in touch with the truth as ‘humanly’ possible. As long as this is what we ‘really’ feel inside we will be absolutely fine. But if those feelings are not genuine and authentic then we’ve got a problem as any decisions we derive from those subscribed beliefs and values are essentially political. They logically pave our way into a very predictable outcome of personal and collective future. I feel that this is somewhat the crux in our historical societal development, that psychology, culture and politics are in fact intrinsically linked. Any political concept, be it Socialism, Capitalism, Democracy, will be bound to fail if it cannot ensure the psycho-hygiene of its people, thus creating the fertile cultural soil from which society can be successfully nourished from within, grow in the most beautiful way.

It would be difficult enough to achieve such an Utopian state of society. But there are quite a few other things involved, it seems. Stargates, other dimensions, extra-terrestrials, time-spaces and space-times. Sub-quantums, holographic universes and shuffle brains. All sorts of sometimes more sometimes less reasonable conspiracy blurb as well as fairly inexplicable post-ice-age sudden seeding of knowledge – not to mention 2012, of course.


II – 2012

What’s the latest story on this? According to David Wilcock everyone who’s either been gifted enough or using one of the apparently existing space travel devices (reverse engineered from the pineal gland and ufo navigation chairs back in the forties!!!) only encountered white light when they hit the 21st of december 2012 on their journeys. They can not step beyond it. Whilst when they travel further down the timeline they’d all see entirely different futures. Like so many other mythologically encoded clues embedded in our culture this reminds us of a scene in a movie. In this case it is Luke Skywalker having to face the illusion of Darth Vader in a small cave on Yoda’s planet and whatever he takes with him is what he is eventually going to be confronted with. Is this the way how it works? Are we really – to such an extent – creating our own future?

In this light it is important for the existence of such time travel technology to be kept secret since our seriously flawed ego-states could lead to horrifying self-fulfilling feedback loops the closer we would get to the 2012 date. But also perhaps that is already happening, that is the white light, the shrieking feedback, and perhaps it is the truth, that we can be anything we want to be, a grain of sand or a galaxy, as we roll over the galactic centre on that miraculous date. If this is true, it would be a paradigm shift indeed.

I quite like the idea so instead of going on about global catastrophes, conspiracies, aliens and the likes let’s stick with the white light at the moment. It also ties in nicely with the concept of psychology that through our emotional outlook we’re master of our very own, customised future. Content and happy people don’t feel the need or urge to bully, abuse or manipulate one another. This way a paradigm shift would already mean that maybe external growth, claiming our worldly interests, becomes not that important anymore, it is happening on its own in a way. And perhaps our lives become more about internal growth – self-cultivation – about becoming a ‘better’ human being, returning back to our ‘true selves’ as the Tao for Millennia has described it. Can there be something like ‘salvation’ in the end?

Why not? Perhaps all major religions do actually allow us to cultivate our ‘souls’ into different ‘real’ paradises (as contemporary Master of both the Buddha and the Dao School, Mr. Li Hongzhi, suggests – 3). And so do perhaps other, less organised, more individualistic pagan / shamanic cultivation ways of mind and body. Perhaps we can arrive there even within our lifetime, when we for instance reach enlightenment through Buddhahood or Tao. We might actually be able to unlock our Third Eye and see the Ultimate Truth and our real place within the hitherto unfathomable Universe. Perhaps it is true, as Sages throughout thousands of years have claimed, that what we see with out flesh eyes, telescopes and microscopes, is only a veil, a deception, covering hermetically what actually IS there.

Being born into such blindness and not being able to see before we eventually crash into death sounds like a rather cruel predicament, doesn’t it? It might as well be that Earth is really a ‘prison planet’ as many of a counter historian is bold enough to claim. But also perhaps it’s just the way how it is, that we’ve lost touch with our true nature after the hefty sail ride throughout the past couple of Billennia. We’ve been faced with total annihilation numerous times, lately not long ago, only between about 15.000 – 7.500 BC, the last ice age. Even that recent, the scientists are uncertain as to what actually caused it. In the remote past there have been many meteorites, polar shifts, tsunamis, volcanoes, earth quakes, continental drifts, even earth crust replacements could have happened. There also used to be an atmosphere on Mars in most likelihood, to remind us of the reality of planetary annihilation, and the asteroid belt could have been part of our Earth once, as well as our dear, beautiful Moon. Maybe a tenth planet hit us and split us apart, we simply don’t know. There are theories of course. But the word ‘theory’, as David Bohm wisely points out, comes from the Greek word for theatre. It is being put forward, presented on the stage and it is therefore only another angle which happens to make sense to the rest of us at a particular time and space on our galactic journey. Without our pineal gland opened we only perceive what our evolved monkey brains allows us to see as reality. The torrent / stream of matter, the ‘explicate order’ (Bohm) runs through our consciousness and is being decoded, like a flickering movie, on-the-fly, by our grasping wonder-brains, before it dissolves back into the unfathomable ‘implicate order’ of the Ground (God?) where everything originally comes from.

Contemplating all of this, perhaps those of us who until the 2012 deadline either through science, religion or self-cultivation are going to be able to penetrate through the visible fabric of reality, will be able to truly ascend on that day, hovering in broad daylight, in lotus position, with a glass of champagne in our hands on the 22nd of December, over a planet which has just been saved from extinction by all our brave, collective efforts. Or perhaps life goes on anyway after that date, as it has always been, like after new year’s eve 1999, when no millennium-bug brought everything to a hyped-up worldwide standstill.

In any case, life – although perhaps not ours – will indeed go on. The planets and galaxies will ‘always’ keep moving. From around 2011 to 2015 for instance electrifying Uranus will join deep-grinding Pluto in a tensional square and consequently bring up issues which the 1960’s hippies first raised during the start-of-the-cycle Pluto / Uranus conjunction. Whether by then we throw computer-generated Molotov cocktails into corporate mainframes which are linked to centralised databases tracking all our pees and poos – or whether we have all peacefully learned how to fly in this life and managed to roll up our sleeves, as a collective, to work on a much broader and larger agenda – the likely reality will largely depend on how we behave ourselves in the years to come. Since Saturn is associated with political / societal frameworks and Pluto with our survival as a species we will have to come up with practical solutions and a change of attitude quickly in order to avoid frankly the bleakest of bleak experiences of complete failure and darkness. Should we survive this then Pluto’s next stop in Aquarius at around 2024 will give us a much needed lift into more lofty realms of existence. By then everything should be ready to truly enter the next 2.160 years of the next Precessional Age [Wikipedia link] – ruled by detached and collectively conscious Air planet Uranus.

I think our future is entirely up to us really. My final prognosis therefore is:

We Shall See!
