US Pluto Return

Pluto Return for the US

Pluto shows us the pieces of ourselves and the pieces of our society that have survived for far too long in Shadow – unseen, untended, and uncared for. It MAKES us see and asks us to step forward and CARE, and through that care to build something new, something different, something that is bigger and has more room for ALL…the Shadow, the Bright, and all that is in-between.

THAT is the work of Pluto and especially a Pluto Return.

The exact Pluto Return occurred in February. Since then it has become even more clear what is not going right and well in the US. So by now you should have a good sense of what the problems are in, with, and for the US.

The next exact Pluto Return occurs on June 21st. For this one, the work to do is to find the GOOD in, with, and for the US. This is MUCH harder. And if you are interested in participating in the energy of the US Pluto Return, then it is the next, necessary step.  What about the US is worth preserving? What about the US is worth fighting for? What about the US gives you hope or makes you proud? I told you, it is going to be hard.

June 21st marks the next exact Pluto Return for the US. Please have your petitions into me by June 18th, noon, central time.

Jupiter’s Ingress into Aries

Jupiter in Aries brings its hallmark signature of expansion into the traditional areas of life affiliated with Aries.

When benevolent Jupiter is in the sign of the Ram we can expect all initiations and initiatives to be extra-blessed. We find that our first impressions are more powerful and auspicious than usual – the ones that are made on us and the ones that we make.

We are given the green light more often than not to proceed with the new idea, adventure, or endeavor, and though we can often get in trouble when we make like an Aries and leap before looking, with Jupiter in this sign, the blow tends to be softened and we may even surprise ourselves and stick the landing!

May 10th – October 28th, 2022 ~ Jupiter enters Aries at 6:22pm and departs on October 28th at 12:10 AM.

December 20th 2022 – May 17th 2023 ~ Jupiter enters Aries on December 20th at 8:32 AM and remains in Aries until May 17th, 2023.

Ask: What happens when I allow my sense of self to expand?

Deadline: All Jupiter Ingress Aries petitions due by May 8th at noon cdt.
