Life is feeling a bit intense these days. Have you noticed? As usual, astrology gives us insight into the collective energetics we all experience. Today, as I post this, Saturn and Pluto, two planetary heavyweights, are forming an exact conjunction in the same degree and sign of Capricorn. This formidable alignment heralds serious and often grave events, such as in 2001 when the World Trade Center was attacked, when the two planets were in opposition.
The conjunction marks both an ending to the previous cycle, which in this case began with the last conjunction in 1982, and the start of a new cycle. So we see endings and beginnings; chapters closed, chapters opened.
