Daily Planet Tracker: Pluto in Capricorn, Now until March 23, 2023

Pluto in Capricorn

Now – March 23, 2023

The planet of transformation ends its 13-year stay in religious Sagittarius, a period when fundamentalist beliefs have radically changed the world. The next phase, Pluto’s entry into organizational Capricorn, will alter the nature of corporations, nations and international groups of all kinds. The planet Pluto and sign Capricorn share a strong sense of intention and focus that are likely to increase efficiency in many domains. However, their mutual hunger for results can repress compassion and contrary views that might slow down the inexorable march forward. The power of corporations will probably reach a tipping point during Pluto’s 15-year stay in Capricorn. It is possible that multi-nationals will grow so strong that they will supplant governments as primary sources of authority. While some believe that this has already occurred, we can expect a further erosion of state control or a strong reaction against corporations that eventually reduces their dominance. This reflects the Pluto paradox as this planet both intensifies and purifies, concentrating force and yet, eventually, breaking down structures to eliminate excess.

Pluto and Capricorn are more about collective structures than personal ones, yet we will still experience this transit as individuals. Stripping away unwieldy and outmoded ambition can challenge us to reconsider our goals, even our most treasured ones. Pluto raises the stakes in whatever game you’re playing, challenging you to increase your commitment or to leave the table. Again, there is a risk of becoming so focused on achieving results that flexibility is lost. It’s hard to keep an open mind in a tunnel, so burrowing through the boundaries of certainty is a healthy counterpoint for balancing Pluto in Capricorn’s excessive determination.

Pluto is associated with the psychological shadow, making it more common place to project negative images on authority figures. While we can hope that its transit through Capricorn may purge destructive elements from the culture, an even more productive application of this force is to question the certainty of your own beliefs. A willingness to re-examine them cuts away lazy thinking and outmoded concepts that inhibit growth and the full realization of our potential.

Ideally, Pluto brings us to the essence of issues and, in Capricorn, will lead to a transformation of the social order, one in which the extreme inequities of power and resources are overcome by a burgeoning awareness of our shared humanity. Extreme danger from environmental issues is one less than desirable way in which our priorities can become redirected. Yet as more and more individuals take responsibility for themselves, the power of transformation can come from within and be a consciously creative force for change. When each of us faces our fears and turns darkness into light we can reshape the world with love and hope rather than reacting to pain and fear.

The Fool










This card reflects your inner conflict between innocence, ambition and belief in yourself. Today is a good day to be free-spirited and take a chance or try something new.

October 26th, 2018
Today, the truth is told and clears up a situation that has hung on and on. Take direct action now to clear up something that should have been handled long ago. The Wheel of Fortune selected you because you need to know that some parts of the conditions were out of your control. Some events are not the result of something you did. You do have control over how you deal with matters no

Your Daily Tarot Card for Oct. 26th is Death











Keywords: Transformation, separation, loss, liberation, revolution!

Astrological Correspondence: Scorpio

Initially a nameless card, Death very seldom literally means death. Instead it is the image of profound transformation, the ending of one cycle, and the transition into a new state. It symbolizes sudden and inevitable change, death of the old self so that new consciousness can emerge. The experience can be saddening or painful, and we might be reluctant to accept the inevitability of the ending. Accepting and recognizing the necessity of endings thus liberates and allows for inner change, rebirth, and renewal. The negative interpretation is depression due to neglecting that a cycle has come to an end, breakup of relationships, obsession, and stagnation.

If You Were Born Today, October 26

HAPPY BIRTHDAY~ Crowdemon123

If You Were Born Today, October 26

You express yourself with authority, sometimes intimidating others without ever intending to do so! Your mind is sharp and incisive, and your wit is on the ball. You have the benefit of both analytical skills and perceptive understanding of others. It is hard to put anything past you! When you care about someone, you are generous to a fault. Although you certainly possess business sense and ability, you are not a traditional businessperson in that you have a strongly idealistic and humanitarian side to your nature. Famous people born today: Hillary Clinton, Pat Sajak, Jaclyn Smith, Dylan McDermott, Mahalia Jackson, Keith Urban, Morgan Saylor, Seth MacFarlane.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

Your birthday falls shortly after a Full Moon this year, suggesting a period ahead of communication and teaching. You may be turned to for advice more frequently, and you are very willing to offer your help. This is a strong year for publicity and any other endeavors that involve spreading the word. As well, your ability to be objective–or to see the “big picture”–can be especially pronounced and rewarding this year.

You are likely to be popular with others when it comes to your ideas and communications, especially as you are communicating with optimism and cheerfulness, and this can bring rewarding experiences and opportunities into your life. Projects you take on now excite you and fill you with hope and optimism.

From April 2019 forward, Uranus transits in opposition to your Sun, and personal freedom issues come into strong focus. Others may seem to be introducing changes into your life, whether you feel ready for them or not. In truth, you are readier than you think! Changes in how you relate to others on a one-to-one level are essential to your personal growth, even if it feels a bit unstable for the time being. Something you have had to give up might now be available to you again, and you need to decide whether you still want it.

You are, for the most part, optimistic, helpful, and ready to share your wisdom with others. It’s an excellent year for guiding, learning, and sharing. Big picture planning and thinking are in strong focus and quite excellent.

This is a year in which you seek out nourishment and naturally nurture and support others. Needs and cravings are in strong focus, and you’re drawn to those things you feel are more wholesome, healthy, and natural. This can be a year in which you make significant lifestyle improvements and/or positive changes to your home and family life.

You’re also quite driven to make improvements and effect positive change in the year ahead. This impacts many areas of your life beyond the personal, including relationships and work.

Certain elements of your social life and financial life are stabilized, secured, and more reliable this year, and others can be going through big changes. You may solidify a romantic relationship, enjoy stable energies in an existing partnership, or become involved with a mature partner. Circumstances may be such that you need to handle money more carefully this year, or this may simply come naturally to you now. Support from older people or authority figures may come by way of solid advice or more tangible help. Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships, are also highly likely.

Relationships are in strong focus this year, and you can find yourself in high demand! This is a year of initiative and energy, and it’s a period of powerful and enterprising ideas. Focusing will be the key to success. You are exploring new things, interests, places, and situations this year, and it becomes you! Do watch for impatience in both your actions and communications, however. You certainly have more courage than usual now, but rushing through things can unnecessarily complicate your life. Creativity blossoms in the period ahead.

2018 is a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is generally not as active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract what–and who–you want into your life now. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect, develop, build, and attract.

2019 will be a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when you find it natural and easy to enjoy life and other people. The focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure than you are in other years. It’s likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a favorable year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out and connect but avoid scattering your energies.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for October 26th

The heart of today’s powerful sky configurations is known in astronomical terms as the Inferior Conjunction of the sun and Venus. Astrologically, this important union activating 4 degrees of Scorpio at 7:17am focuses attention on the wide variety of Venusian themes — such as love ties and romantic sentiments, feelings and emotions, the fine and graphic arts, feminine interests, realms of nature and botany, social activities and money-making ventures. The eminent astrologers of the 20th century Dr. Marc Edmund Jones and Dane Rudhyar referred to this stellar merger as a New Venus. Surrounding this line-up in the solar system of the Earth, Venus retrograde and the sun are a halo of other, quasi-significant alignments — including investment-promoting Vesta forming a supportive, 60-degree tie to Neptune (8:36am), the monthly lunar rendezvous with peace-and-harmony advocate Juno in Taurus (12:11pm), and a rousing, 72-degree contact between Mars and Uranus (7:16pm). Be aware of a 4 hour void lunar twilight zone in Taurus that starts at 7:50am and concludes at 12:42pm when the moon enters airy Gemini. Complete old business matters on a high note as the lunar void cycle holds sway.

[Note to readers: All times are now calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Five Days to Samhain, The Witches New Year


Five Ideas to Prepare for the Coming Of Samhain

1.  This is a time for remembering the Ancestors, honoring deceased members of your family, and remembering the cherished dead.  Gather together a few pictures of your ancestors and place them on or near your home altar.  Set out some offerings of food, drink or valuables to honor the dead.  Visit and clean the gravesites of those who have passed away.  Say some prayers for the souls of those who have passed into the Otherworld.  Talk with your ancestors and bring them up to date about what has happened since they died on the earthly plane. 

2.  Samhain is the time when the veils to the Otherworlds are lifted.  It is an excellent time for the practice of divination, scrying, fortune telling, or reading the future.  My first choice for divination is a Tarot deck.  I prefer using the Voyager Tarot by James Wanless or the Thoth Tarot by Aleister Crowley.   There are many techniques and methods used for fortune telling or divination.  My notes about using the Tarot are online. 

3.  Read about Samhain, Halloween, Day of the Dead.  Add notes and links to books, magazines, and webpages on the subject.   Visit your local public library or college library for books, media and magazines on the subject. 

4.  Add some appropriate Samhain, Halloween, October songs, chants, prayers, invocations, or poems to your Neo-Pagan Craft Journal, Book of Shadows, Ritual Handbook, etc..  Write in your personal journal.  Many keep a Neo-Pagan notebook, journal or log as part of their experimental and experiential work.  

5.  If children playing “Trick or Treat” from house to house is customary in your neighborhood, then get ready for the event.  Dress in a costume or mask.  Host a Halloween party.  Decorate your home with Jack-0-Lanterns, skeletons, and spooky looking decorations.
