As I pointed out yesterday, Saturn is conjunct the Plutos of everyone on Earth over the next few years. This affects entire generations, and is revealing of changes and restructuring at the most fundamental of levels, since Pluto is our "seed power" of transpersonal transformation that reveals an aspect of our "personal immortality." Today we take a look at each generation that is affected.
Saturn teaches us lessons we cannot avoid, and shows us our higher responsibilities and duties freed from the chains of obsolete patterns and whatever "binding force" we've lived with, but cannot any longer. As these two planets represent "shadow material" in primal areas of our consciousness, when they come together we confront our fears, limits, and needed boundaries, as well as the consequences of discipline, authorship, and wisdom.
The Pluto in Cancer generation, those born between September 1912 and June 1939 (with a few exceptions), already went through their major restructuring between 2003-2005, when Saturn transited Cancer. All people born in the first four decades of the 20th century had major changes and transformations between 2003-2005. Because their Pluto is in Cancer, it primarily affected their home, family life, their ability to secure their basic needs, and gave them a new structure to embrace the Divine Transformative energies of Shiva, aka Pluto. Most of them will not be around for the next transit of Saturn in Cancer beginning Summer 2032.
The "Baby Boom" generation, those born with Pluto in Leo and the first part of Virgo, constitute the vast majority of people alive today. As Saturn conjuncts the Pluto of these generations, they will confront their mortality, as well as their Divine power to transform their consciousness, their view, and the world. For Pluto in Leo, August 1938 to June 1958, it involves the power of heart, love, creativity, and joy of natural self expression. All beings born between 1938 and 1951 had Saturn conjunct their Pluto between Summer 2005 and Autumn 2006, while those born between 1951 and 1958 are going through it as we speak, and will be until September 2007.
For Pluto in Virgo, October 1956 to July 1972, they will have to purify, transform, or sprout the seeds of the future through health, service, repairing what needs repairing using the power of practical adjustment of or to circumstances. Saturn will primarily affect those born between 1956 and late 1963 when it enters Virgo and occupies their Pluto degrees between September 2007 and August 2008. As I noted yesterday, this generation will still be alive for the next time Saturn goes through Virgo beginning October 2036, which will again completely transform all of them at the core of their Being.
Those born between Summer 1963 and Summer 1972 with Pluto in middle and late Virgo will experience Saturn's transit September 2008 through July 2010, and again November 2037 through September 2039. Those with Pluto in early Libra born between Autumn 1971 and Autumn 1978 will feel Saturn's influence from October 2009 to September 2011, and again 2039-40, while those born between Autumn 1977 and Summer 1984 with Pluto in late Libra will experience Saturn from late 2010 to October 2012 and 2040-2042.
Lessons involve justice, fairness, balance, perspective worked out in the realm of relationships, as well as law. Expect important legal transformations around those times. If you have a Pluto in Libra, you can expect major developments during the hot zones of important aspects I described in this article, which touches on the other major transformational forces at work challenging everyone to "right action." Between 2009 and 2015 Uranus and Pluto will challenge those born between 1971-1978 in some fairly drastic ways.
Those born between November 1983 and September 1990 have Pluto in the first half of Scorpio, and will experience the first Saturn transit of their Pluto between October 2012 and November 2013. Whatever happens then will be important in seeing the wisdom of the evolutionary process again between November 2041 through September 2043. Obviously these time spans move forward based in the generation we're focusing on, so those born after 1990 will be going through major changes and transformations in their world in 2013, 2014, and 2015 as prelude to their evolutionary choices to be presented 2043-2045.
We confront several years that are crucial to our individual and collective transformation. We have the power to structure how the seed-power of our Divine Self sprouts in the world, and merely need patience, diligence, a sense of responsibility, and maturity to achieve the dominion that is our Divine birthright during the coming months and years. When you make Saturn AND Pluto your friends, you'll never be afraid of anything ever again. Aum Namah Shivaya!
