SATURN CONJUNCT PLUTO and TRANSPERSONAL PSYCHOLOGY
Dennis Harness in his work has noted that palm leaves in a museum in Chennai predicting the coming of 3 more planets including Pluto and from years of experience with Pluto, one cannot deny its power and connection to Shiva and Yama with its transformational energy.
We have an unusual cyclical return that we have not seen since 1982. On average we get a Saturn/Pluto conjunction every 34 years and it last happened in Nov. 1982 and next happens on Jan. 13, 2020. Because Saturn and Pluto are within 3 degrees of each other April-June of 2019 and now around 5 degree and close again in Dec. 2019-Jan. 2020, we are going to see some major events. In personal astrology this cycle forces one to make difficult changes in your life life that have outlived their usefulness. Depending on what house is impacted in your chart by Sagittarius this may be connected to work (10th house), relationship (7th house) or home (4th house) or many other varieties. The energy for this has been building up for the last few years with Saturn in Sagittarius and will climax by the end of 2019.
It is said that if you have your natal Saturn in Sagittarius and Pluto is going over it in the 26-29 degree area, it would denote a stressful period in your life where inevitable transformations need to happen and this will happen only after considerable difficulty. One is usually caught between a rock and hard place in needing to give something up that is particularly difficult to give up like a non-useful relationship or a job that is killing you. There may be a tendency to persist to make things work but inevitably the pressure mounts and you have to make the changes and you cannot avoid the inevitable.
On a psychological level, there is great power to complete psychological transformation and have a breakthrough. But the process is tiring and slow and some old structure represented by Saturn has to breakdown. Its possible that things get taken away from you like a home, or a bank account but ultimately this transit is reinforcing a new need to change your lifestyle and live within your means and not be dependent on others.
This transit will force you to work extra hard and be patient and face your responsibilities despite fatigue and tensions. You may experience disappointments that force you to change in new ways. Remember the cocoon has to be destroyed for the butterfly to emerge. You have to fix things that are not working in your life and you cannot continue as usual and with Pluto at the end of Sagittarius, you have to fix and complete the work on the house that Pluto has been transforming since 2006.
