Pluto in Capricorn (In Case You Were Wondering)

The irony of this spoof video from The Onion wasn’t lost on me when I came across it the other day, just weeks before Pluto made entry into Capricorn.

Take it apart for yourself and you can revel in the loopy literalism of what we’re actually living through as a country right now. Let’s see, a big gaping hole in the earth — that’s easily one of Pluto’s most literal motifs. I always wonder about the horoscopes of those folks you read about in the news where, during harsh weather, giant sinkholes suddenly open up beneath their car (or house) and swallow the thing down completely. You just know they’ve got a heavy Pluto transit going on somewhere in their chart.

And then the Capricorn part of our equation, actually it’s more like Capricorn on Viagra: The government’s absurd notion of a 400 billion dollar “stimulus package” to salvage the US’s economy. This is Capricorn at its most deranged and disassociated from the sign’s ruler — pragmatic Saturn. “Let’s print up a bunch of new money and then we’ll just, well, throw it into a giant hole.” And, as one woman notes in the Onion video, “set it on fire.” Very Pluto. Very nuts. Very now.

  5. Sans le savoir, elle vient ainsi de rejeter le seul être qui
    la protégeait d’un terrible complot.

    I’ve been browsing on-line more than three hours nowadays, yet I never discovered
    any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is lovely price enough
    for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and
    bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the net might be a lot more helpful than ever before.

  9. Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine
    but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!
