Astrological News: Pluto in Capricorn in anticipation & in retrospect
Robert Currey originally written August 2007
Original forecast in 2007

Pluto in Capricorn spells the decline of western hegemony based on intellectual wealth and a new world order based on material wealth.: The current crisis in the capitalist system reflects the adjustments that are needed for Pluto in Capricorn. Now, trust in the system is no longer about faith. It has to be based on a reality. Property value is closer to the bricks and mortar value. Commodities including gas and oil reflect the laws of supply and demand. Borrowing (by banks, investors, property owners and businesses) without real assets has been exposed as a sham. Sag. was about belief, optimism and risk. Capricorn is about realism, scepticsm, pragmatism and caution. Pluto brings the new underlying values into play.

Updated in 2008:

World-wide Regime Change (as expected with Pluto in Capricorn) is starting to happen
The first Lunar Eclipse (21st February 2008) with Pluto in Capricorn has coincided with regime change in three continents:-
  1. The emergence of a new country: Kosovo (independence declared Feb, 17 2008).
  2. Pakistan's leader, President Musharraf and his party were defeated in the election (Feb 18, 2008) in the aftermath of the tragic death (and possible assassination) of Benazir Bhutto (Dec 27, 2007).
  3. President Castro of Cuba has retired (Feb 19, 2008) after 49 years. Interestingly, astrologer Lynda Hill noticed that the Lunar Eclipse is most visible over the West Indies and not far from Cuba.
I anticipate that there will be a lot of governmental change and the creation of new countries or government authorities while Pluto remains in Capricorn.

In 2008 I wrote "Expect significant governmental change and the destruction and the creation of new countries, government authorities, regimes and empires, while Pluto remains in Capricorn 2008-2024."
