It’s not all Doom and Gloom with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn it can be Sunny too

When the weather outside is frightful…

Which it is today where I live. The weather experts issued a weather warning last night for strong gusts of wind and pelting rain. And they were right.

I have to confess I love this kind of weather as it gives me a very good excuse for not doing anything, as in the chores outside. Although the tonnes of rain we’ve had makes digging in the dirt easier and I do need to do quite a lot of that…

The heavy raining strangely started the moment I stated in a post that the earth was bone dry around here… those sort of coincidences always make me pause to wonder if I should be more careful with what I say in posts, but I also need to be careful about getting caught up in magical thinking.

Being careful is a very Capricorn thing…

So when people tell me to be careful as someone did about a year ago when for a moment I expressed excitement… I did another typical Capricorn thing – I was done with them.

Although it usually takes a build up of someone doing something repeatedly to me before I’m done with them. I was fed up with this person’s constant barrage of doom and gloom, and their tendency to snuff out the light… which took me ages to light up.

Time for some music – which is rather Capricorn with a hint of Scorpio.

If you can’t play this video – it’s Leonard Cohen’s You Want It Darker… only this video is the Assassin’s Creed Origins trailer version of it (because I loved that game and I love what they did in the trailer):

Thinking weird thoughts can be fun.

But you got to know when to hold ’em and when to fold ’em into origami cranes which fly away when you pull their neck and tail… just be careful not to pull too hard or it’s paper carnage.

And how to hold them when you do hold them… loosely, with a pinch of humour, a sprinkle of pepper to make you sneeze if things get too serious between you and the weird thought.

My partner now sneezes in Korean – Aish! which is an exclamation of frustration in South Korean dramas (aka Kdramas). I forced him to watch those until he was as addicted as I was – that’s what good partner’s do, they support you through an addiction, and your job as an addict is to get them addicted too so they’ll stop giving you the holier than thou side-eye.

The best way to understand something is to dive into it, experience it for yourself. The best way to understand someone is to dive into the something they are swimming in and swim with them.

I still sneeze in elephant… who fell on his knees and that was the end of the monkey. In Asian astrology I’m a monkey, so I’m a tad conflicted about what happens when I sneeze.

My favourite weird thought is that the universe is listening to me, following my blog and reading my posts, because it gets a kick out of the shit I say, then it messes with me in a friendly way, like a loving master teaching its pupil, when I make statements which may be a bit too crystallised, which need breaking to free what’s trapped inside.

Watching me react to being messed with.

If I was a film and the universe was the audience, I’d be a Harold Llyod film.

Harold Lloyd – Safety Last film still

Hey, Harold, what time is it?

What do you think his answer would be?

I know what I’d be tempted to say in answer to some smartass like me who asked me that when I was in that position… they might learn some new swear words. I have a vast range in several languages, even one in Iranian because one of my best friends at school was Iranian and of course I wanted to learn swear words in his language.

It’s good to learn new things. The more new things you learn, the merrier your mind becomes.

That Harold Llyod still is rather perfect for a post about Saturn and Capricorn, since, in astrology, Saturn is Capricorn’s ruling planet and both the planet and the sign are associated with time.

If, like me, you were born with your Sun in Capricorn and you read up on that sort of thing, you’ll regularly hear about timey wimey stuff, like aging and maturity.

Capricorns are often said to be born old, we’re grumpy little old people on the inside when young, who grow up backwards, becoming younger internally as their body gets older on the outside.

This is an excerpt from an interpretation of that placement:

Sun in Capricorn
You are much more serious than others your age. On the one hand, you like being taken seriously and enjoy having responsibility, but on the other hand you see that other young people aren’t saddled with such responsibilities, and you tend to envy them.


You may develop a rather odd and unusual sense of humor. Through jokes and humor, you show that you recognize the seriousness of life, but you also escape from its overwhelming effects.


When you grow up, you want to be important and achieve something real that everyone can point to as yours. You are ambitious in everything you do and will work very hard to excel over others.


You are very practical and always ask what good something is.”

Interpretation by Robert Hand from “Youth Portrait”, which is also an interesting read for grown-ups via Astrodienst’s AstroClick Portrait

If you’d like to explore your own chart, there’s an easy way to do it.

Just go to Astrodienst (link takes you to their Free Horoscopes page, which includes the AstroClick Portrait that I am using in this post).

Pop in your birth data as a Guest User if you don’t want to create an account and it’ll generate a chart for you, and read it for you if you use the AstroClick Portrait (no, I’m not being paid to advertise it, it’s just really good and I’m giving credit where credit is due).

If you don’t know your time of birth then just pick a time, a lot of astrologers use midday when time isn’t known (and then use chart rectification techniques which are rather complicated).

Any of the interpretations which rely on time will be wrong, but then again so could the ones which don’t need a birth time – that’s part of the fun of exploring astrology, you get to argue with the interpretations.

I love doing that… my natal chart agrees that I’m the sort who loves arguing.

One of the benefits of arguing with astrological interpretations is that it gives you an understanding of your self which doesn’t rely on someone else giving you that.

While it’s nice to get affirmation and confirmation from an astrological interpretation of who you are, just as it’s reassuring to have a personality test do something similar, sometimes it’s better when they get it wrong and you set them straight in your own mind.

One of the great gifts in life is self-reliance when it comes to who you are – that’s a very Capricorn thing for me to say.

“Sun Trine Ascendant


As you get older, you will develop considerable self- confidence and a need to live exactly as you want. You also have a strong desire to perform in front of others, perhaps just as a show-off or as an actor or performer in games or other situations that demonstrate your talents. You see little reason to do anything you don’t enjoy.


You have pride and a sense of your own worth, which will be seen and respected by others if you deal with them fairly, as you probably will. You are usually honest because you feel that the direct approach to people and situations is best.


You want to understand on a grand scale, but you may not be so clear about the details.”

Another benefit is that it gives you insight into what is going on when people argue with you and your interpretations, opinions, perspectives, it’s particularly useful when you’re a blogger to have that kind of insight.

They’re basically doing what you do when you say “No” to an astrological interpretation of your Sun sign or personality type. They’re saying “No” to what isn’t them and that is a way for them to help themselves find a “Yes, this is me”.

Of course sometimes they’re just being a dick… just as sometimes it is us who is just being that.

Being a dick is a Capricorn thing too and other signs will heartily agree with that, except for Pisces who refuses to be pinned down to anything just in case the other way is better (this is a little poke at the many Pisceans who follow my blog and read my Cappie writings, I’m sure they’ll weigh in and tell me not-exactly what they think of that poke).

My Sun sign is rather adept at the dickness – it’s a useful skill to have sometimes, especially if you have to deal with other dickees.

Here’s my natal chart, AstroClick Portrait style:

My natal chart – slightly edited in photoshoppe to remove a few bits and bobs

I screenshotted it on the Sun in 5th house interpretation because that’s the area of me, my psyche and my life, being affected by transiting Saturn and transiting Pluto in Capricorn.

Those two transits have had many posts written about them by many different blogging astrologers.

The interpretations and predictions (especially the ones about the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn transit coming in 2020) have mostly been on the rather grim side… perhaps because Saturn and Capricorn are associated with the Grim Reaper, and Pluto is associated with Hades.

Words like – harsh, tough, difficult – have appeared regularly. There’s a vibrational element and energy of fear, doom and gloom mongering to what is being said.

All of that is par for the course when it comes to Capricorn…

I remember when I first started reading up on my Sun sign back in the 80’s when I was a teen, and how depressing it all sounded.

I got the impression that astrologers either just found the sign too boring, too boring to bother understanding, definitely too boring to write about… or hated it, probably because they’d interacted with a Capricorn and we’re rather annoying to other signs, we even find each other annoying.

The reason I started reading up on my Sun sign is typical for a Capricorn – my boyfriend was into astrology and one day he decided to share it with me, by using it to prove that his Sun sign, Aquarius, was better than mine. He was taking the piss, and I laughed as I was supposed to but my goat horns got a little miffed-pointy. Since I didn’t know much about astrology, not enough to counter his banter, I decided to buy the book he’d used – Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs – and learn about it. I kept going from there.

If you challenge a Capricorn… be careful. You might unleash the beast within – the sign is associated with the Devil card in Tarot.

For more on the Tarot Devil Card, this is a wonderfully philosophical perspective – Devil Card Tarot Meaning via Aecletic Tarot

“Devil Tarot Card Meaning


Perhaps the most misunderstood card of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really “Satan” at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius (Bacchus). These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires. Sometimes, this card says, it is good to dance with Bacchus, surrendering control, or be Bacchus and manipulate. Too much restraint can hold you back and keep you from achieving important things.


In this regard, we might say that this card is about being honest with yourself. What do you desire? What gives you pleasure? What has power over you (and will enslave you if you let it), and what makes you feel powerful (and will help you reach your highest goals)?


With Capricorn as its ruling sign, the Devil is also a card about ambitions, about commitment and resourcefulness. This is the mountain goat that aims to get to the top and does all it needs to do to get there.

excerpt from Devil Card Tarot Meaning via Aecletic Tarot

Now it’s worth keeping in mind when reading interpretations and predictions in astrology (or any other subject matter), that the astrologer writing it is a person with a natal chart and transits to their natal chart just as you are… and that their personal astrology colours and influences how they perceive signs, planets, placements, aspects and transits.

Elsa of Elsa Elsa is the most honest astrologer about it, and she boldly shares her own astrology and how the transits affect her and her life.

She’s been writing a lot about the Pluto and Saturn conjunction in Capricorn transit on her blog. Her perspective is full of warnings to prepare yourself for the worst… because the two transits are moving through her 12th house and that house represents hidden enemies, especially those hidden in the shadow and dark parts of the psyche. So her perspective fits her personal astrology perfectly.

Steven Forrest of Forrest Astrology on the other hand has a different perspective because, like me, he’s a Capricorn Sun. His interpretations of the sign are dynamic because he lives it.

He wrote a great post recently in reply to an intriguing question he was asked, and it caught my eye because it was about “mistakes”:

“Let me get rolling here with a question that has become a cliché: is there really any such thing as a mistake? I’m a Capricorn, so my answer is pretty simple: yes indeed – mistakes are part of life. The word serves a useful purpose and we need it in our vocabularies. And when we do make mistakes, there is always a price to pay.


Beyond that practical, grounded perspective, we enter slippery territory.


Mistakes come in a lot of different flavors, for starters. If my airline pilot aspires to never making any aeronautical mistakes, I applaud his or her excellent attitude. But, in the world of astrological counseling, we generally aren’t looking at mistakes of such a concrete nature. We are not talking about believing that two plus two equals five. In astrology, we are talking about navigating life itself.


Perhaps you were once married or partnered with someone. Perhaps you are not in that relationship any more. Was the whole thing really just a mistake? Is the question that simple? Maybe, with some relationships, we can just say yes. But with many, it’s a lot trickier.”

excerpt from Botched Transits and Progressions by Steven Forrest

In my bio on my blog and in my posts I call myself a “mistake-making mess”… that can be interpreted in several ways, and could be considered a put-down of self rather than how I view it – a liberating statement.

Once I called myself that… I was free!

But to understand that you really need to have lived my life as me, as a Capricorn – our sign really hates making mistakes, but knows they’re a part of life (as Steven said in his post), and we tend to try to turn mistakes into learning experiences with the proviso that we learn never to make the same mistake more than once or twice if necessary.

I failed and succeeded in equal measure… sometimes you just have to keep making the same mistake over and over and over again, but it’s not the same mistake each time even if it may appear to be. Takes a while to adjust perception and notice the tiny differences… then put them together to realise why you have to repeat the pattern and cycle.

Each time I go around in a mistake cycle… it’s the same but not the same, and it transforms me a little bit more.

The other day I wrote in a post:

“And this human is a Capricorn Sun with a natal square from Saturn, has Pluto in the 1st house and Mars in Scorpio – the latter is on tap when a shot of it is needed. Mostly though your hosts will be Venus in Pisces, Moon in 12th house and Neptune in the 3rd which are rather good at making others feel welcome.”

from You Have Mistaken Me For Someone Else

But I didn’t explain what I meant by that. So I’ll explain it now since this is an astrology post.

My natal chart gives me both a very sweet, soft side and a tough as old boots and hard as nails side.

I mostly interact with others through my sweeter side (especially my Venus in Pisces which is mainly to blame for why people mistake me for someone else – although Venus is not working alone, every aspect adds their part to a placement – aspects are connections, conversations, and alliances between parts of the self, the psyche), unless they take my natural kindness for weakness and then they get a nasty shock to their system.

I could if I wanted to flay you alive with my mind (Mars in Scorpio in the 3rd house of communication – don’t mess with someone who has Mars in Scorpio, it’s the Harvard of Mars placements, in other words it’s a pain in the… places you didn’t know you could feel pain), but why would I want to do that? That’s nasty and incurs some nasty karma for me, so I’d rather not do that.

People often think I’m joking or bluffing when I say something like that about myself, because they have no proof of it since I never do it, haven’t done it to them or to anyone else in front of them.

I don’t do it because I know I can do it – it’s a bit of a paradox.

Sometimes I do sting people a bit, but it’s a very controlled sting… I could do so much worse if I let self-control go.

But I’ve worked hard on self-mastery – it’s not something I chose to do although I did choose to go with it rather than fight it… eventually. Capricorns are stubborn… not more stubborn than Taurus though.

It’s something which comes with my natal chart, especially the parts which aspect my natal Sun in Capricorn, and I had to do it.

Natal Pluto aspects my Sun.

Pluto in the First House


You are a very intense person who takes almost everything seriously. You tend to go to extremes, which may make other people uneasy.


You enjoy having power over people and being in a position to make changes. It is extremely important that you develop a strong sense of responsibility about using power, because you will probably always use it to some extent, and if you are not careful you can create problems in your life and the lives of those around you.


Other people will either be drawn to you very strongly or will not like you at all.”

Interpretation by Robert Hand from “Youth Portrait”, which is also an interesting read for grown-ups. via Astrodienst AstroClick Portrait

As does natal Saturn.

Check out the writings of Robert Wilkinson of The Aquarius Papers for information on the Self-Mastery side of Saturn, and a more positive spin on a planet which usually only gets negative spin.

But natal Pluto and natal Saturn don’t aspect each other, I experience their effect and energy through my Sun, through the ego, especially the creative ego.

With Sun in Capricorn the “responsibility” factor gets turned up to eleven (if you haven’t seen This is Spinal Tap you probably won’t get that reference).

Capricorn (and Saturn) makes you own your own shit – and if you refuse to own your own shit, misuse and abuse personal power, karma will be a super bitch to you.

Capricorn and Saturn don’t let you get away with anything, especially not that milksop of blaming others for what is your fault.

Collectively, as in now that we’re all living in Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn times, that means something along the lines of – if you don’t like the person who is ruling your country, and you’re blaming everyone else for them getting elected into that position of power, and you feel frustrated, powerless… somewhere, somehow you’ve participated in what happened, directly or indirectly.

You’re part of the structure… whether you meant to be or not. Find that thing which makes you a part of it and you find how to change things for yourself and perhaps for others too.

A very intriguing astrology blog which often takes long hard looks at the collective astrology is – Ohio Astrology.

On a personal level… one of the best things I ever did for myself was to seek and find my part in my relationships with narcissists.

What they did to me is their fault. But I let them do some of that to me due to feeling frustrated and powerless… I gave them more power over me than they actually had to begin with. One of the ways of retrieving the personal power you’ve given away to others is taking a long hard look at yourself and what you do and don’t do.

It hurts like Ffffffffuck, but then it frees you from being hurt again again again by that thing.

I realise that’s an unpopular approach, but I’m a Capricorn, we eat rusted old tins cans and barbed wire for breakfast, and we’re not a popular sign… because we tend to have that kind of approach.

Those people who are always using karma as a one-way street… that street is a two-way street when you’re a Capricorn and natal Saturn squares your Capricorn Sun as mine does.

Basically that = maybe what people did to me was my own shit coming back to me, I’d better take a long hard look at myself before I start saying things like – “Karma will pay you back for what you did to me”. Maybe Karma is paying me back for what I did to you or someone else.

Hmmm…

“Sun Square Saturn


This aspect can be difficult to deal with. You may feel that the world is always working against you, preventing you from doing what you would like to do. You have particular trouble with authority figures. Some people in your life may be hard on you, but your real problem is that you are hard on yourself.


You have a strong sense of discipline, and you consider reality very important. You have very high standards of achievement and perfection, which you want others to live up to as well as yourself. Even if you never achieve your goal, you will have gone farther than most. Look at what you have accomplished rather than what you haven’t.”

Interpretation by Robert Hand from “Youth Portrait”, which is also an interesting read for grown-ups. via Astrodienst AstroClick Portrait

I was thinking afterwards about what I had said about my astrology in my post and the fact that I didn’t explain it. I wondered – What did I mean by that?

I know what I meant while writing it.

But it, like many bits and pieces I say in posts, which stick with me… tend to be messages from me to me which often mean something else too – What was the something else it meant?

Then I said something in a reply to a comment:

“I only have one natal planet which is retro (unless I look at my progressed chart, but it’s best to get the hang of the natal chart first before exploring progressed – or at least that approach is one which is best for me). It’s Pluto in the 1st house and it’s very fortunate that it’s retrograde, that the energy is turned inwards. I used to prefer it when transiting Pluto was retrograde as I was more in tune with the feel and effect of it, but these days I feel in tune with it when it’s direct too, but it is transiting Capricorn now so that may be because I’m in tune with Capricorn due to my Sun being there.”

Here’s the thing, I often know that the person I’m replying to will find a lot of what I say in reply, particularly things like that to be, for want of a better word, boring.

Even the most interested in other people types of people can only go so far in their interest in other people… I have my limits too and I find other people fascinating. Shit, that sounded really dickish. Never mind…

They’re not interested in that… so why say it, why include it in the reply?

And that stuck with me too long afterwards…

Last night I suddenly connected it with other inner post-it notes…

As I’ve been reading what astrologers have been writing about the transits of Pluto and Saturn through Capricorn, and how they think it will and is playing out, how they perceive we should be experiencing them and their effect…

I kept thinking – but I’m not experiencing them that way at all, they kind of feel friendly to me, helpful.

“Sun Trine Pluto


You are the kind of person who affects the people around you even if you make no special effort to do so. You should learn to be aware of the impression you make and take responsibility for being an influence on others.


You do not like to have everything around you completely settled. You enjoy making changes, for it helps you understand a situation better.


Your life may go through quite a few changes, but this will not bother you, because you want to grow. You want to understand yourself as much as possible. You look into yourself quite a bit, and as you get older, you will have a better knowledge of yourself and your potentials than most people have.”

Interpretation by Robert Hand from “Youth Portrait”, which is also an interesting read for grown-ups. via Astrodienst’s AstroClick Portrait

Then the denseness lifted and I went DUH! Ursula you can be so incredibly dumb!!!

Just don’t mistake my dumbness as a complete lack of intelligence… you’ll get a nasty shock if you do that, and I would prefer not to nasty-shock you.

I have the feeling that I’ve probably already said this in a post before, but I wasn’t listening to myself, or not hearing that part because I was getting a message from another part.

After five decades of living and being a Capricorn Sun aspected by both Pluto and Saturn, constantly being careful and preparing for the worst… I’ve got used to, learned how to deal with, and acclimatised to the doom and gloom they bring and have figured out how to see the silver lining in the storm clouds, find the sunny spots even though the wind is howling and the rain is hammering down.

Of course I’ve yet to experience what comes next…

Oh… it’s bonfire weekend in the UK… even in this weather people are celebrating by setting of loud bangs and sparkles sparks!

  1. Hey 🐻🐐🐠🐒,

    First let me say that I am loving the playful, fun energy I’m getting from your posts the past couple days! I always enjoy reading your words, even when they’re to or for yourself or someone else, but you’re shining brighter and your monkey is playing. That’s how it feels to me anyway.

    The graphics of that game are amazing. Beautiful colors. Wow! No wonder people like gaming, it would be fun to play in beautiful places like that. I can see how some people could get lost in it though.

    Your Pisces Poke had me laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes. Thank you!!

    The information about Pluto and it being in your 1st house made me think about the 1/7 we chatted a little about, since Pluto is in my 7th.

    I did the Click thing for fun. My whole chart pretty much is about feelings, emotions, deep thoughts… Ha! Maybe there’s something to all this astrology stuff after all😜

    I also like your scorpion, Ms Harvard😁 I noticed him in the background when I was a new follower and mentioned email. He was in the background, never even moved, but I felt his presence in your very gentle, kind reply. I mean that sincerely. I’m sure I came across a little stalkerish in my excitement.

    I think its interesting that both of our bios state that we are messes. It is freeing. For me it reminds me to stop trying to live up to a ridiculous idea of…not perfection… maybe baseline? A ridiculous idea of what I should be able to do, or be.
    And there goes my mind on a tangent about all the good things a Mess can symbolize…

    I’ll stop typing now👋🌻

    • Hey Angie 😀

      Actually “perfection” is an apt word to use when looking at being a mess from an astrological angle, since we were both born during Pluto in Virgo/Chiron in Pisces. You’re also part of the Pluto-Uranus conjunction in Virgo generation, so the Virgo energy is intensified-electrified.

      Virgo is associated with perfectionism, and Pisces is associated with messiness.

      Virgo wears a tailored business suit while Pisces is a Dippie Hippie – during the 60’s/70’s that juxtaposition was visually displayed in fashion. Woodstock was the ultimate Pisces event giving the collective finger to Virgo.

      Virgo keeps her house tidy, clean, spotless, while Pisces prefers a comfortable home with creative chaos.

      Virgo is precise, whereas Pisces is go with the flow of whatever.

      Virgo counts calories, turns eating into a formula, analysing everything before ingesting it and digesting it, and gets obsessively focused on the details of “healthy” diet, whereas Pisces eats what makes them feel good, or what happens to be in the fridge, perhaps some banana-mushroom-yoghurt-calamari stew.

      This is an interesting perspective on the Virgo/Pisces axis dynamic – https://ohioastrology.com/2019/10/13/the-green-generation-smokes-neptune-in-pisces/

      It discusses the transit of Neptune in Pisces and its effect on the Pluto in Virgo/Uranus in Virgo generations in the now.

      Chiron also transited Pisces in recent years, it’s just moved into Aries (calling upon us all to heal the “me”), so our generation all had their Chiron return which is a time of reviewing where we are at with our wounds and our healing of our wounds.

      There was an increase during those years of people saying “No” to perfectionism, no more photoshopping of models and actors bodies to make them “perfect” creating unrealistic ideals which make people hate their own bodies = Virgo may pick on itself as well as others, focusing upon perceived flaws, criticising, nagging itself and others, whereas Pisces just wants peace, wants acceptance, wants to be allowed to just be as is, and tends to go with “the universe made me this way, so this is the way I should be”.

      I think more people are embracing the mess, because it is relaxing to do that whereas perfectionism and its need for order created more disorder – anxiety disorders increased, stress disorders, sleep disorders – Neptune/Pisces are associated with sleep/dreams.

      The flip between our charts is interesting, not only do I have Pluto in 1st versus your Pluto in 7th, but I have Uranus in 1st versus your Uranus in 7th, and you have Chiron in 1st versus my Chiron in 7th. It’s almost a mirror of sorts, but what kind of a mirror?

        A mirror…hmmmmm…. perhaps we’re both Alice instead of one Alice traveling. We meet at the looking glass (WP) and share our questions and observations.
        This mirror idea is going to be playing in the back of my mind for a while, its jumping up and down…oh, it just saw the “mess is good” idea… there they go.😁

  2. I love bonfire night! It mostly occurs in eastern Canada but I also experienced it once in UK. I always liked it much more than Halloween. 🙂
    I read somewhere that as a Scorpio rising person that this would be a good time for me. It’s’s certainly been kind of challenging, but going well for the most part. 🙂

    Like

    • I read an article on the BBC this morning about how Halloween, now that it’s taken off in the UK, has impacted bonfire night celebrations. Apparently people don’t celebrate it the way they used to, which is surely quite good since people, especially children, were always getting injured and the day after the news would be full of tales of bonfire night gone wrong. It’s a weird celebration when you think about it… although considering the political climate atm, I think those who still celebrate it more traditionally may get creative with their Guys.

      The good time for Scorpio rising is probably based on the Sun traveling through the sign and crossing your ascendant into your 1st house which shines a light on you. It’s a centre stage transit, a good time to shine, be seen. However it does depend on what else may be transiting the sign – this year Mercury is retrograde in Scorpio, so it’s more intense for the sign. It’s a good time to review the self, and paths taken to get to who you are now. Scorpio looks beneath the surface, and Mercury retrograde in Scorpio pushes it deeper within.

      Also Uranus, the planet of the unexpected, the rebel and radical, is transiting Taurus, which means it’s opposing Scorpio and may cause friction for Scorpio. Then there’s Saturn and Pluto transiting Capricorn which is affecting systems and structures, causing the old order to be tested for stability, if the structure is rotten it’ll fall and require a new structure built.

      Wherever Capricorn is in your chart, that’s the area most likely to feel tested and under pressure, where things are being restructured.

      It’s also worth noting that anything transiting Scorpio, Taurus, Aquarius will at some point square or oppose your Leo Sun, causing creation friction for the ego/identity.

      To get a better view of the astro and how it affects you personally, you need to look at your natal chart and how the transits are hitting it. 🙂
