Pluto In Capricorn 2008-2024: Major Changes In Government, Banking, and Business

Published

on

In September 2008, the planet Pluto ended a retrograde period in the tail end of Sagittarius and started moving toward Capricorn, where it would stay until 2024. At that the time, the biggest news was that, unless the government stepped in and bailed out the banks, the United States was on the verge of financial collapse.

Pluto is the planet of transformation, renewal, death, and rebirth. It is a purger, destroyer, and creator. It rules hidden matters as well as the withholding or revealing of secrets. It represents power and control, as well as domination and manipulation.

Capricorn is associated with worldly structures such as government, banking, and business, and Pluto in this sign is reflecting the changes that are happening in these areas. It has already travelled through Capricorn for just over half of its 16 year duration and its effects have become increasingly obvious over time and will continue to do so, especially over the next three years.

Pluto and the United States Government

The last time Pluto was in Capricorn was from 1762-1778, which is when the United States of America was founded. At that time, colonies sought to establish themselves independently from an oppressive and troubled British monarchy, which led to the Declaration of Independence.

Over the years following this, the United States eventually would become the dominant country and currency and other countries would ‘adopt’ their style of democracy, or have it forced upon them. The Founding Fathers appeared to have good intentions when creating the United States, but over the years the government would become corrupt and work to serve the interests of the global elite, bankers, etc.

However, in this latest edition of Pluto in Capricorn, it looks like the governing and financial structures of the U.S. will fall victim to Pluto just as Britain did the last time this occurred. It is also possible that the European Union and other government and international structures will be negatively affected as well. This will be the first ‘Pluto in Capricorn’ we are living through and observing since Pluto’s discovery.

The U.S. will be having its ‘Pluto return’ in 2022, the effects of which will be felt a few years prior and following. This means that Pluto in the sky returns to the same zodiacal position it was in when the United States was formed. It marks endings and beginnings regarding how the energies of that planet are being applied. The country will be likely be dealing with issues around power and how power is used.

So far throughout this Pluto in Capricorn, we’ve seen a lot of interesting developments that truly reflect Pluto’s properties. Pluto can reveal secrets and we’ve seen that with the information coming from Wikileaks and Edward Snowden. The people’s desire for change is reflected in the last three presidential election cycles and the increasing popularity of anti-establishment presidential candidates.

It started with Ron Paul in the 2008 and 2012 elections and was then followed by Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump in this most recent cycle. Trump’s presidency reflects both the positive and negative manifestations of Pluto in Capricorn. As he appears to be making some good changes, (and/or negative depending on your views) he is also power hungry, dominating, and authoritarian leader which is very ‘Pluto in Capricorn’ like. This is sort of how the British were when the U.S. was formed.

We’ve also seen this strong desire for change through massive protest movements that have been occurring such as Occupy Wall Street, Standing Rock, and Black Lives Matter, with the help of Uranus in Aries in a tense angle to Pluto. When the U.S. was formed, slavery was alive and well, and the current oppressive treatment of black people by police and many others can be traced back to this time. As Pluto represents power and abuse, the upcoming ‘Pluto return’ can also potentially help to facilitate bigger steps towards racial equality and questioning abuse of power.

More and more people have been becoming aware of the conspiracies behind political establishments and we’ve seen a tremendous rise in the popularity of people like Alex Jones. The fact that he was recently interviewed by Megyn Kelly is an astonishing reflection of the change that is occurring. When I first became interested in conspiracies, shortly after 9/11, I followed Alex Jones’ work and at that time I never would have imagined him being interviewed on a mainstream prime time show.

Changing Economic Structures

As mentioned earlier in the article, Pluto’s entry into Capricorn coincided with the threat of a financial collapse that led to the American government bailing out the banks. Following this, the U.S. and other countries experienced a recession.

Over the years there has been a growing awareness of the corruption behind the federal reserve, international bankers, and their power over the population through the control of currency, banks, inflation, and interest rates. Money is no longer backed by precious metals, and is instead created out of debt, or what is known as ‘fiat currency.’ Many more people are now aware of this. The value of money is based on the perception of how well the country is doing economically, the people’s faith in it, supply and demand, and any manipulation done by the central banks and the global elite.

In late 2008, a new type of currency was proposed to help protect people from economic uncertainties. Early 2009 saw the birth of Bitcoin which is a ‘cryptocurrency’ using a new technology called ‘blockchain’. Cryptocurrency is a digital asset that is structured in a way that its value cannot be affected by inflation and the dilution of fiat currency. It’s blockchain technology is a revolutionary type of ledger that can be used in other ways as well.  Over the years since then, there have been many other cryptocurrencies that have been released, but Bitcoin is currently still the primary one.

Bitcoin was first given a value in late 2009 at $1 USD being worth 1309 Bitcoins, which is equivalent to 0.00076 of $1. A year later, its value went up to $0.50 and has been increasing since. Currently, as of early July 2017, one bitcoin is worth over $2,500 US. While it has seen dips in value over the years, its long term trajectory has remained upward.

The growing value of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies can be attributed to many different factors, with one of the main reasons being that people view it as a good investment. However, from an astrological perspective, this is a subconscious manifestation of the ‘Pluto in Capricorn’ story. In the event of an economic collapse, Bitcoin and/or other cyptocurrencies could potentially be worth much more than they are now.

In the long term, it is very likely that cryptocurrency and blockchain technology will become a big part of the future of commerce. Perhaps Bitcoin or another type of cryptocurrency will eventually become the standard and primary method of exchange. Alternatively, blockchain technology might inspire something else that could unfold over the coming years. More recently, a newer and more versatile cryptocurrency called ‘Ethereum’ has become popular and jumped in value this year.

Pluto and the World of Business

Prior to being in Capricorn, Pluto was in Sagittarius, from 1995 until 2008. Sagittarius rules media and marketing, and right around the time Pluto entered this sign, the internet started to become publicly available and commercialized. Although the internet and its precursors existed prior to this period, it was mostly unknown to the general public and was used more privately by military and universities.

As Pluto progressed through Sagittarius, we witnessed the birth of social media and eventually smartphones. Pluto’s transformation of media has had a direct effect on its current transformation in the changes in government, commerce, and the business world. Without relying on controlled media, we have become more aware of what is actually going on and it has also opened up marketplaces and new models for different types of businesses to thrive in.

E-commerce as well as the use and sale of digital products has grown enormously during its passage in Capricorn. Many major brick and mortar retail stores have either closed or downsized as a result and this trend will continue on some level, but not completely. This change has also created new opportunities for niche businesses and people wanting to create businesses and careers out of their passions.

Since 2008, we have seen a much greater resistance to the oil industry and fossil fuels, for a few reasons. First and foremost, many people believe in the supposed connection between carbon and climate change, but our increasing awareness of frequent oil spills is also playing a big part. Since Pluto’s entry into Capricorn, the number of incidents involving oil has been substantial. The nuclear incident in Fukushima has also been pushing more people toward demanding sustainable and clean energy. We still have a long way to go, but we have been taking bigger steps than ever, thanks to help of the internet and Pluto.

The invention of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency, as previously addressed in the article, will also contribute to the changes in the business world. The blockchain, which is the digital infrastructure of cryptocurrency, has many other purposes and uses which will likely be adopted in the coming years.

Conclusion

As mentioned above, Pluto ends its journey in Capricorn in 2024. The changes, steps made, and seeds planted will continue to develop even beyond this period. Saturn also enters Capricorn in December 2017 until December 2020. During this time, part of Pluto’s influence in this sign will be amplified. Saturn creates restrictions and challenges, and can be contractive. It puts things to the test and it can create challenging circumstances to facilitate necessary changes.

Both Saturn and Pluto will be making challenging aspects to the astrological blueprints of the United States and the Federal Reserve. Also, there will be a powerful Solar Eclipse coming late August (2017) that will reflect major changes happening in the US through the second half of the year and beyond.

It would be wise to consider and observe the changes that are occurring so that you can make decisions that are aligned with what Pluto is creating rather than what it is purging. There is incredible opportunity for us to contribute and take part in these new beginnings.

Why Vegan and not Vegetarian? Vietnamese Monk Thich Nhat Hanh Answers The Question

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Vietnamese Monk Thich Nhat Hanh explains why he chooses not to consume any meat or dairy products, and points towards the overwhelmingly cruel food industry.

  • Reflect On:

    What gives us the right to torture animals, steal their babies, abuse them simply for our consumption? Where is our compassion, morality and empathy? Have we been made and brainwashed to believe that it's ok?

The most heartbreaking thing to see and to witness is an innocent benevolent being getting tortured and suffering. This is the realty of eating animal products today. Billions of animals are raised for slaughter every single year, and the overwhelmingly large majority of them go through horrific and terrifying experiences. It’s hard to imagine how anybody could eat or wear the clothes of diseased animals knowing what they went through. It’s also hard to believe that anybody who does eat or purchase products that have used animals in their manufacturing process would do that kind of “labour” themselves.

The truth is that many people still don’t know what these beings are going through. It’s absolutely heartbreaking, immoral, and unethical. Morality, empathy, and love are all emotions that need to return to planet Earth, and as long as we have multiple industries exploiting animals, that can’t happen.

If you’re unaware of what these animals are going through on a daily basis, a recent PETA investigation on two of the world’s top cashmere exporters revealed extreme cruelty, including the violent killing of cashmere goats. You can read more about it and see some footage of that here, if you’re interested.

You can view more examples of graphic footage in the trailer of “The Buddha Bowl,” a documentary in the making featuring personalities and some of the most influential and renowned spiritual leaders from all over the world sharing their perspectives on veganism. These include viewpoints from Buddha himself and from spiritual leaders from the past and present, totalling about 30 interviews on animal rights, environmental issues and health.

One of the people in that documentary is Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk who is recognized as a global spiritual leader, poet and peace activist. The video below is not part of the documentary listed above, but from an interview taken a few years ago at a conference.

Are We Even Designed To Eat Meat?

There is no doubt our world is becoming more awake, aware, and compassionate. Millions of people around the world have transitioned towards a plant-based diet. This represents the kind of compassion and empathy our world needs more of, and this diet can do nothing but benefit human health, the planet, and the animals.

It’s no secret that eating meat and animal products is destroying the Earth, as clearing land for animal grazing and slaughter is one of the leading causes of deforestation, and factory farms are an environmental disaster.

More people are also starting to become aware of plant-based diets and their health benefits.

A recent study conducted by researchers in California and France found that meat protein is associated with a very sharp increased risk of heart disease, while protein from nuts and seeds is actually beneficial for the human heart. The study is titled “Patterns of plant and animal protein intake are strongly associated with cardiovascular mortality: The Adventist Health Study-2 cohort,”

It’s one of many studies that’ve emerged over the years showing the benefits of plant-based diets and their ability to reverse diseases. On the other hand, many studies published have shown how the consumption of meat has the exact opposite effect.

Below is a clip from a recent CETV episode where CE founder Joe Martino and I go into the discussion a little deeper, with a specific focus on plant-based protein compared to meat protein. If interested, you can watch the full episode here by signing up for your free trial. CETV is a platform that we created to combat the censorship we’ve experienced over the past couple of years.

I also go into this type of discussion, if you’re interested in reading about it, in an article I recently published: “Another Study Suggests Humans Are Not Designed To Eat Meat.”

The Takeaway

Human beings are born with compassion and empathy. What we are doing to animals on our planet today, and how many continue to ignore it and be unaffected by it, is simply as a result of mass brainwashing and marketing by big food corporations. The truth is that we’ve been taught to ignore it, we’ve been taught to believe that it’s OK and it’s our right to do this to others who share the planet with us. No child would ever stand for such a thing unless they were taught to do so. It’s the same thing as racism, we are not born with it, we are taught it. I urge all those who are reading this to do their research into where the vast majority of our food and clothes are coming from, watch what these animals are going through, look into their eyes and and feel what they are feeling.

The ability to feel and understand the emotions of others, animal or human, is a HUGE and VITAL step towards creating a better world and a better overall human experience.

Marianne Williamson Admits “The System Is More Corrupt Than I Knew”

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Marianne Williamson stated in an interview on Fox and Friends that she did not realize the political system was as corrupt as it is.

  • Reflect On:

    This is an important revelation of how leaders often don't quite see the full truth of our system at hand. Through them and their experience, we can learn a lot about what is truly going on. Is it time to let go of the systems we have?

About a week ago Marianne Williamson told the New Yorker, I know this sounds naïve, but I didn’t think the left was so mean. I didn’t think the left lied like this.” In a segment I did on CETV, I discussed the fact that Williamson is doing a great job of bringing a bit more of a conscious conversation into the mix here, which is very important, but seems to not quite understand what politics is really about and how things function in our world.

In my article about this statement I stated:

Some have suggested that Marianne already knows these truths, and she may, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she is only uncovering these things now. I say this as I belong to a group that communicates regularly that contains many high profile conscious industry leaders like Williamson and other big authors, speakers etc. Many of them are great with spirituality but seem to struggle to see how politics truly functions. I have witnessed this first hand and this is why I’m so passionate about what I do as I feel bringing together both personal transformation and hard truth is imperative.

Some felt that my analysis was off and that Williamson is just ‘playing naive,’ but to me, this did not feel true nor did it seem to be the case. While some might view this as an unimportant detail, it’s very important as for society to truly begin to shift we must not only personally transform but also realize the true nature of the world we live in.

As outlined in the CE Protocol, the formula I built to help awaken and shift the masses, the very first step is Breaking The Illusion about our programmed reality and understand what’s truly going on. From there, personal transformation becomes key.

Williamson Admits She Was Unaware

Here we are a week later and Williamson has stated what I observed in my previous segment, she did not quite realize how corrupt our political system truly is. In an interview on Fox and Friends Williamson stated:

advertisement - learn more

“I would say that I feel that I’ve learned that the system is even more corrupt than I knew and people are even more wonderful than I hoped,

I want to state this isn’t about picking on anyone as much as it is about understanding the importance behind seeing the full picture of the change that needs to take place here. For 10 years now I have built CE to include both personal transformation and truth seeking for the reason that either one of those topics on their own doesn’t create the change we all know is possible in our hearts.

I’ve seen many ‘spiritual leaders’ still deeply support the dysfunctional nature of our systems because they believe there is truth to them when in reality they belong to a consciousness we are shifting away from.

Our political system is built and exists within a system designed for a very limited state of consciousness, some call this 3D consciousness. The goal isn’t to shift our political system, it’s to let it go. Collectively we are shifting and the new state of consciousness emerging doesn’t support the political system at hand. Hence why the chaos around it is increasing, because it’s acting as a mirror for us to see how it doesn’t resonate with our emerging consciousness.

It’s like trying to install Windows on a Mac or vice versa, the systems aren’t designed for the operating system. Humanity is faced with a challenge of ‘letting go of the old,’ not trying to fix the old.

In a brand new segment of The CE Show I did on YouTube and CETV, I discuss Marianne’s latest comments and what I feel we all must realize as we move forward in this journey of shifting ourselves and our world.

The CE Show airs multiple times per week on CETV. Membership proceeds from CETV go towards supporting our journalism and future broadcasts. You can start a free 7 day trial here.

The Takeaway

I feel that we have become addicted to the systems of a state of consciousness that we are moving away from. The choice is up to us, we stop resisting and holding onto things of the old, move through the process of watching these old systems fall away, or we continue to fight tooth and nail under the belief that we must hold up the old systems, and suffer along the way.

Ask yourself within, do you truly feel that this is about changing our current political system to be more open and evolved? Or is it about letting go of the rigidity of our current systems and creating new ones that are birthed from a  new state of consciousness, not one that is centuries old…

Full Moon In Pisces: Navigating Ideals

Published

on

We are having a Full Moon in Pisces which will be exact at 4:33am Universal Time on September 14th 2019. It will appear the fullest on the night of the 13th for most of the world and on the night of the 14th for the Far East, Australia, and New Zealand.

This is the peak of the Lunar cycle which began two weeks prior with a New Moon in Virgo. The energies of it build up as the Moon increases its light and are strongest in the days before and after. However, it will still be a part of the backdrop over the following two weeks.

Full Moon’s are a period in which we feel a push-pull between two opposing signs, in this case being the Moon in Pisces and Sun in Virgo. It can reflect either a conflict or integration of both signs. We can feel this opposition happening individually within us and/or we can also experience it play out around us with some people (or circumstances) expressing the Virgo side and others expressing the Pisces side.

Pisces is associated with sensitivity, compassion, creativity, and oneness. It is spiritually conductive, mystical, energy oriented, dreamy, flowy, imaginative, idealistic, and empathic. Negatively, it can be delusional, lazy, intoxicated, deceptive, confused/confusing, elusive, flaky, and lack critical thinking. Pisces energy is the least compatible with the mundane world and is associated with escapism in its many forms.

Virgo is about productivity, duties, service, physical health, cleanliness, and purity. It is organized, conscientious, skillful, diligent, efficient, analytical, detailed, and practical. Negatively, Virgo energy can also be overly critical, too cautious, fault-finding, irritable, discriminating, and overly perfectionist.

Full Moon Aligned with Neptune in T-Square with Jupiter and Mars

This Full Moon is close to Neptune which has many of the same qualities of Pisces that were mentioned above. It is viewed as a modern ruler of that sign and it amplifies its energies even more so during this period. Neptune is also associated with glamour, romance, and addiction. It has a dissolving, flooding, and watery energy that doesn’t comprehend boundaries.

Neptune is completing its last of three squares with Jupiter in Sagittarius which will be exact on September 21st and will be strong into the following week. It began last January and peaked again this past June. At best, this can be an expansive period in a spiritual, creative, or compassionate way.

However, it can also be a time of confusion or lack of discernment around beliefs, ideologies, education, and teachers. It can also be a time in which we become aware of us being like that previously. We can be more excessive when it comes to how we express Piscean/Neptunian energies mentioned above.

At the time of the Full Moon, Mars in Virgo is also involved in this configuration along with the opposition of the Sun and Moon, forming a T-square aspect. This can be good for asserting ourselves towards our ideals or with a different Jupiter-Neptune approach (mentioned above). However this can also make our actions scattered, less assertive/direct, and make it harder to apply ourselves with practicality.

Full Moon Sextile Pluto Near Saturn and South Node, Saturn Going Direct

This Full Moon is in a tight sextile with Pluto which is near Saturn and the South Node. This could trigger some of the themes of the previous Lunar Eclipse (that is still reflecting this period) in a more harmonious way. Purging aspects of our past that are getting in the way of us moving forward. This can help to facilitate empowerment through some sort of release or transformation.

Saturn will be finishing its retrograde on September 18th and will move towards its final conjunction with the South Node which will peak at the end of the month and early October. This energy was also strong in mid Spring and part of it in early Summer.

Saturnian themes get amplified and we can be dealing with limitations, obstacles, restrictions, or perhaps issues around boundaries. We may feel a need to make changes around responsibilities, commitments, career, and structures in our lives. Similarly to the last Lunar Eclipse, there can be a sort of ending playing out around how an area of our lives is being expressed.

Full Moon Opposing Mercury and Venus Conjunction As They Change Signs

At the time of this Full Moon, Mercury and Venus are in a conjunction at the very end of Virgo, (Mercury’s sign). They will then be moving into Libra (Venus’ sign) in the hours following with the Full Moon triggering after it begins to wane.

This can be a time of heightened interactions, catching up with friends and other relationships. While it is in Virgo it could lean more towards its themes connected to work, service, fault finding, etc. For some people there can be a feeling of some sort of urgency.

After this conjunction moves into Libra, especially a day after the Full Moon,  it becomes more pleasant, social, and creative. Our interactions can be more harmonious, diplomatic, and less critical. We can more easily see both sides to something, find balance, and a great time to discuss relationship matters.

As a result of both of these planets transitioning near the same time, some people may experience some sort of significant shift in other areas of their lives within a few days following the Full Moon.

Things To Consider During This Period

How can you better balance the mundane aspects of life with your ideals, creativity, or spirituality? How have your beliefs been impacted this year and what is the conclusion to your experiences? Is it possible that you may have been confused about some aspects of newly or previously acquired perspectives?

What themes are coming up for you now that have been playing out since last April? What do you need to release? What changes do you need to make when it comes to your work, responsibilities, commitments, structures, or boundaries?
These are just some examples of what could come up during this period; however, there may be other variations of this energy playing out. If you wish to do any sort of intentional release connected to what has come up at this Full Moon, it is best to do so anytime after the peak of the Full Moon when it begins to wane until the next New Moon in two weeks. The exact moment of this Full Moon is on September 14th at 4:33am Universal Time. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.
