Worldwide Purging & Accountability

18 Dec 2018, MANILA — On January 12, 2020, Saturn will conjoin Pluto at 22° Capricorn.  Brace yourself for a potentially destructive  and transformative period beginning 2019 until two years following the conjunction.  The world will never be the same again.

Saturn in Capricorn is all about accountability.   It challenges us to be good custodians of massive resources thru the societal structures we create.

Pluto ushers a powerful rite of passage or transition.  On both the individual and global level,  all rites of passage have three phases:

Phase I  A purging or separation of the former self (for example, cutting one’s hair before joining the army to signify separation from civilian life)

Phase II  A threshold or period between the old and the new marked by uncertainty and ambiguity

Phase III  The completion and assumption of a “new” identity

Saturn-Pluto in Capricorn

  • Serious conflicts and even a global war will affect the distribution of power among nations.
  • New global superpowers could emerge from the ashes or there could be none at all—Humanity could decide to eradicate even the notion of "superpower" and redefine the basis for power.
  • Expect a purging of sorts including volcanic eruptions followed by frequent seismic activity.

Together, Saturn and Pluto will teach us the proper use of power and to take full responsibility for its misuse.
