    Pluto and the Galactic Center
    I posted this originally in my other community this week. It may be an interesting discussion here too:

    Once every 248 years, Pluto conjuncts the Galactic Center (GC) of the universe. The last time, humanity was in the mid-1700s, a chaotic time of war and peace, earthquakes in areas we don’t normally associate with earthquakes (Cairo and Lisbon), and new experiences–the first hospital in America, a chocolate factory in Germany and roller skates in Belgium.

    Peter VI of Russia was deposed in a coup, Robert Clive “reformed” India, international musical possession (a variation of musical chairs, mind you) of land was in (Louisiana went Spanish, and Canada went British), exotic Tahiti was discovered and Daniel Boone headed for the American frontier.

    Halley’s comet was spotted in the heavens, the Gregorian calendar was in use in Great Britain, horseracing became fashionable at Newmarket in England, Ben Franklin played with his kite and his key (hello, electricity!), and Canadians got to go to the post office. The celebs of then are historic names to us now–Patrick Henry, Joseph Haydn, Rousseau, Marie Antoinette, Voltaire, Mozart, and Immanuel Kant.

    It’s said that Pluto’s transit of the GC heralds a time associated with heightened creative talents, unique expression and original thought. Pluto, as many of you know by now, is Scorpio’s primary ruler. Keywords associated with Pluto include intensity and transformation.

    On Friday, it was announced that Pluto conjuncted the GC again. As far as I’m concerned, it’s been conjunct the entire year. In March 2006, Pluto stationed at 26 Sagittarius 45, and that was considered exactly conjunct the GC then, but now Pluto is at 26 Sagittarius 57, and this announcement has been made. Pluto moves so slowly, and the GC is very large, so I suppose both are true. I do know that there is something different, special, about this time, and I’m personally fascinated because I was born with the GC said to be exactly square my Sun.

    It would seem then that the changes we’ve seen over the last year and the changes still to come in 2007 will indeed mark a time of new beginnings, new challenges, and heightened expression through thought and talent. Unfortunately, it also warns that we must be more protective of each other throughout the world. Plutonian power is massive. It speaks of things like nuclear power as we saw rising at the end of WWII. Back in the 1700s, there was still massive transformation coming. Ben Franklin proved we would have something called electricity. While I associate electricity with Uranus more than I do with Pluto, the act of the discovery that can change a world’s relationship with its way of life is certainly clearly transformative!

    How would you envision this age of reckoning we have before us then? What changes do you see coming in the ways we can relate with our individual and collective ways of life? You might figure that we’re talking about the period from 2006 through 2026. What would you like to do to help such a process be smoother? Come on, everyone, use your grey matter and let’s see what we can consider for a good discussion in this thread!

    In answer to my “How would you envision this age of reckoning we have before us then? What changes do you see coming in the ways we can relate with our individual and collective ways of life? You might figure that we’re talking about the period from 2006 through 2026. What would you like to do to help such a process be smoother?,” you wrote, “We just need to have a glimpse on Tesla’s chart, the most brilliant of all geniuses who would have given mankind so much more if only he hadn’t been misunderstood and harassed throughout his life…

    Forgive me, Alix, but I don’t see where he was misunderstood and harassed throughout his life–at least not according to the bio offered by Lois Rodden’s Astrodatabank:

    Nikola Tesla biography on AstroDataBank

    The only thing I do see in some of his habits was a parallel to the television character “Monk” with his obsessive traits–“a progressive germ phobia, washing his hands frequently and avoiding shaking hands and measuring the volume of his food before he ate it”–easily given to Pluto’s conjunction to his ascendant as well as his double complex T-square between his 6th house Moon/Mars conjunction in Libra opposed to 12th house Jupiter and squaring the 3rd house Venus conjunction to the 4th house Sun in Cancer. (Please note, Astrodatabank used equal houses while I prefer the Placidus method.) In addition, because Jupiter is also square to Saturn, Saturn is conjunct Venus as well, although it wouldn’t be if Jupiter didn’t provide a bridge for that stellium in Cancer.

    His chart shows a complex heartbeat with Neptune in the 12th house in Neptune-ruled Pisces, Mercury in the third house in Mercury-ruled Gemini, and the mutual reception between Venus and the Moon.

    His chart is an intriguing study but not one where I’d conclude that he was misunderstood and harassed. Feel free to discuss this though. I’d like to hear what you have to say. 🙂

    Please say more, however, on what I had asked as well, will you?

    Once in a Lifetime….
    I have my Sun conj. GC at 26 Sag. conj. Saturn, still trying to understand this transit. In Decembero 2007, Jupiter will meet “us” there too, before entering Capricorn on Dec. 18th.
    Like myself, S.Spielberg, Brad Pitt and Christina Aguillera, among others, have Sun 26 Saggt. conj. Galatic Center. Let’s see…

    I guess, we survived! 🙂

    So many times, I’ve seen people looking at the transits of these outer planets and thinking that they would notice huge memorable events that could clearly be linked to those transits. Your comment impresses again what I’ve tried to teach them: the moment can come and go, and you might not notice it at the time the transit has happened, but years later, you might look back and utter a long, slow ohhhhhhhh as it hits you about the meaning of that particular transit.

    Thanks for a priceless comment!
