Many astrologers understood the conversation Mars and Pluto were having when they fell into a square October 8th. We’d been saying for weeks and months that the Mars conjunct South Node in Libra was a decrease in peace. And what happened the day before? Hamas attacked Israel.

Which is awful and I condemn it, but Israel's response has been absolute genocide out in the open. This was Libra (Relations and peace) and Capricorn (governments and structures). We had the god of war make tension with the god of the underworld.

Pluto in Capricorn was exposing the governments and structures of society. Pluto in Aquarius is exposing society itself. Where have we been complacent?

The AI and tech to come will be out of this world good. So you will have to learn to embrace a duality that exists. Everything has potential to be good or bad. It’s not moral or immoral in and of itself. It’s the…
