Pluto in Capricorns are ethical, but tend to lack empathy and heart. For many members of this age group, it is as if they were cut off from their deeper, emotional side. It is important not to let this tendency become too unbalanced, as it can lead to a harsh, insensitive attitude, and a tendency to become involved in corrupt and unethical practices.
Transit and Progressed Pluto in Capricorn Opposes US Chart’s Natal Sun in Cancer
When Pluto in Capricorn transits the US Chart’s natal Sun in Cancer, Pluto seeks to destroy our foundation; possibly with devastating consequences. We reject our past, our customs, our entire lives up until this point. We experience brutal anger and rebellion against our own country, our own people, and we seek the opposite extremes in as many situations as possible.
Capricorn rules customs, class, manners, tradition, elegance, legacies, the familiar, old money, history, preservation, etc. The destructive nature of Pluto may wipe away decades of our customs and history, businesses, successes, and family traditions. Inheritance and knowledge from parents to children may no longer be passed down generation to generation. The complete destruction of the middle class may occur during this transit.
If we’re not careful, it won’t just be history and customs that will be lost. It will be our knowledge, our memories, and our people. No human being exists without also having a past. Therefore, no people nor country can exist without a past or a history either.
As restrictive and non-progressive as Capricorn might feel, she is our spine, the roots of our tree, and the foundation of our proverbial house.
We must remember to rely on Capricorn even as we defy it.
