For the last several months, transiting Pluto in Capricorn has been forming trines with both itself and Uranus in the charts of anyone born in the last few months of 1965 and the first few months of 1966. That’s my generation — like the Who song from 1965.
The Uranus/Pluto conjunction of 1965 was the big astrological news of the era. It was what we call a “generational” aspect: something that will come to define the group of people who share the conjunction in their natal charts.
With Pluto making a once-in-a-lifetime trine with it’s 1965 Uranus conjunction, those of us born during that time should be feeling something. I can say with confidence that I am feeling something, although I’m not really sure how to explain it.
Here are the interpretations of these Pluto transits on astro.com.
Pluto trine Pluto: Up to you
This is a period of stability, in which very deep and perseverant energies lend themselves to you. Whether you make use of them or not is completely up to you. However, if you do decide to use them, there will be potential for inner growth. From this position you can gain deep insights into the functioning of your psyche which might have shocked you at other times.
This is a time for simplification and for finding out what is really meaningful to you. It is a period when you are not only able to, but should, make changes. It is a time when you are able to eliminate the old and outworn elements of your life with relative ease because there will be little in the way. It may even seem so easy that you are not aware of its being an issue, but you should not rest on your laurels. Take an inventory of your life, your friendships, your possessions and other attachments and involvements. See which of these support you and at the minimum allow you to grow. These should be preserved. But do not struggle to preserve anything that does not serve you, especially if it seems to want to pass away. This is most important, because whatever you do not eliminate from your life now that does not serve you could become a cause of difficulty during more stressful times that may come along later.
Pluto trine Uranus: Internal evolution
This is a time of creative and radical transformation, either in your own life or in the lives of those around you. You will strive to bring about changes that clearly separate this period from the past, not wildly and rebelliously, but with a clear plan in mind and a comprehensive view of the whole. Consequently the changes that you make at this time are lasting as well as thorough.
If you have the opportunity, you may be able to accomplish something quite extraordinary, at least in terms of your normal expectations. The changes you make at this time and the tasks that you undertake will broaden your horizons, and this enables you to do more than usual. Along with this is the fact that during this time you may become involved in something that is quite unprecedented in your life, which will have this same broadening affect.
You may become interested in completely new kinds of ideas and in the people associated with them. Whether or not you keep your old friends throughout this period, you will certainly gain new friends who will reflect your internal evolution.
Circumstances that used to limit your life, viewpoints that narrowed your perceptions and relationships that were unnecessarily confining may all pass suddenly out of your life at this time. You will not feel a sense of loss, but rather a sense of new birth and freedom. Now you can go on to do all the things that were not possible for you before.
This influence can increase the scope of your life in every way by breaking down all the structures that used to hold you back. This will give you the chance to find out much more about who you are and what your life can really be.
It is interesting to me to read these interpretations because I totally agree with what they say. I’m unusually content with myself lately, but more importantly I don’t feel as if I need to be in a rush to do anything. The paragraph that begins “Circumstances that used to limit your life . . .” sums up my current mood in a nutshell.
It makes me wonder how others from my generation are feeling right now.
