The first part is explaining a bit about the current astrology, and then a personal example of how it’s playing out in my life. I always try to give those here and there, so you can learn a bit about the different ways the transits can affect you and those around you.

At the end, I’m going to dive deeper into each Rising sign or Ascendant. If these aspects and transits I speak to are forming any sort of connection with the personal planets in your chart you may feel them much deeper. Pluto is currently one degree away from a square to my MC. I feel that so much. A transformation in what I’m known for that didn’t come easy.

The current astrology is set up to help us conquer fears. To look them in the face and tell them they have no more power over us. You know how you’ll come across a video, watch it unsuspecting, and then suddenly something jumps out that terrifies you?

I shared a video like that the other day, and I don’t normally do that. Today I’m understanding it’s relevant to the topic. A friend of mine said she watched it and the part where something jumped out terrified her so much she threw her phone across the room without thought.

How many times do you watch that video before the terror stops coming because you know what to expect? You may watch it a few times and jump every time, but at some point you’re going to know exactly the spot, and the fear or terror or small scare is not an issue anymore.

Facing our fears, sometimes over and over, is the only way to build courage. You all know I share my personal journey and stories as a way to connect and to help you understand the astrology better. I’ve never been fearless. What I have been is willing to face my fears as often as it takes for the terror to stop controlling me and my decisions.

Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008. By now we’ve all had fears and terror in that area of life being dredged up. When Saturn entered Capricorn he formed a conjunction there to Mars before Pluto. Jupiter came in and formed three exact conjunction to Pluto. These energies at play are not new!

Sure, the first few times you would be afraid. That’s so very human. Venus will form a third conjunction to Pluto before she leaves for Aquarius. Mercury is set to form a third…
