A LEAP OF FAITH REQUIRED

The most wonderful thing about astrology is the insight it gives you into your feelings and events in your life. The world has been going through some great changes for the last year, most of them caused by a planetary configuration we astrologers call Pluto in Capricorn. The sign of Capricorn represents the world you have built through your choices, values, ideals and fears. Your fears and those that you have accepted from society are your boundaries and limitations-- the structure of your life and these boundaries have been moved without your consent. This aspect does not accept a mere make-over, a piece of new furniture or a coat of paint, what is required is a structural change that affects the very foundation you are standing on. You need both the practical and the hopeful to be happy. Too much reality makes life dry and unexciting; too much fantasy keeps you isolated and unable to manifest anything real. And now Pluto enters that reality and shows you where the imbalance in your life and in your community and country lies.

Pluto entered the sign for the first time January 27, 2008. It regressed back into Sagittarius on June 15, 2008 and on November 27, 2008 it reentered Capricorn just in time to announce our new president Barak Obama. And his election was a symbol of the new world order that lies before us. Yes, the world, the way you once knew it is gone. The last time Pluto was in Capricorn the United States entered the world arena as a slave owned nation and America’s entry certainly shook the international arena. That is why I new that Obama would win, it would represent the end of a cycle and our quest for true independency and democracy. So, how does all of this translate into your personal life? It has shifted your position of power within you, and in so doing it has revealed where you are stuck, the part of you that has worked in the past may actually be the part that is bringing you down or causing you trouble. Pluto will be at zero degrees of Capricorn August 6, 2009 for the last time, which means that the new beginning we have all been struggling to build since its first entry into Capricorn last year will finally have some staying power. So now what you put out into the world in regards to effort and work will begin to hold, instead of being uprooted, changed or collapse due to the necessary support and finances.

We have all watched the world obsess over Michael Jackson. Part of this obsession has to do with nostalgia for the past that is quickly disappearing. We are holding on to our old idols as they leave us and make way for the new, and so we raise them even higher so that no one can take them away from us. It is our inner yearning to not let go that keeps us rehashing the past -- one way to not face the now and our uncertain future. So yes, things that symbolize the past will increase in value. Nostalgia is in big time. The changes that are happening around us and within us are frightening, because the markers in our lives have moved and we don’t know how to measure ourselves, where we stand and where we are going, any longer. What is also in now is anything different and that brings me to Sarah Palin. Talk about a perfect environment for an uncommon common person. She does everything different, everything that one would see as political suicide and she gets away with it. I believe it represents just how much we all want change; some of us are not even looking at what that change means as long as it feels different. Stepping down as Governor of Alaska gives her the title of “Renegade.” Now that’s amazing.
With so many new emotions and uncertainty surrounding you what should you do? The answer is to go within and listen to yourself; reconnect to the magic of your own inner voice and let that lead you. As a struggling new nation, that’s all we had to rely on, along with common sense and natural intelligence, a rarity these days. Comfortable times have allowed us to loose touch with ourselves. Whatever is happening to you is happening for a purpose, find that purpose and you will move through the difficulty. Learn the lesson and you won’t feel stuck. Change brings great opportunity and opened unwatched doors, and if you are prepared and ready to make a move, chances are you’ll get the opportunity. Gather together your confidence, talents and faith in yourself and offer that to the world. Isolation is not a good choice now. Rather, put yourself into the stream of life, and learn how to swim with the current as well as express your own individuality as you keep your head afloat. There is an audience that is eager to see something new, something real, something that doesn’t deceive but offers both hope for the future and insight into the present struggle. So take a leap of faith, it is truly the safest path.
