temporary return to the sidereal zodiac sign Scorpio (May 28 - Nov 28)
of the important planetary events of this year is the transit of the modern planet
Pluto from the sidereal zodiac sign Scorpio to Sagittarius. It first occurs on
January 28. Pluto stays in Sagittarius till May 28, and then with its retrograde motion
returns to Scorpio and stays
in Scorpio till November 28. After November 28, 2005 it will remain in
Sagittarius for the following 14 to15 years (till February 2020). Although
it's going to be in Sagittarius for only about 4 months before it returns to Scorpio, Pluto being the planet
of transformation will certainly affect the matters related to Sagittarius in a big way.
The drastic changes in our collective moral and religious perceptions are
certainly going to be manifested in the way we never experienced before by
Pluto's transit in Sagittarius. This era (next 15 years) will be remembered as
the period of religious revolution. The way we have been used to deal with
religions will no longer be our norms. Although it's very likely that some
of the world religions will either become obsolete or transformed into other
forms the religious or moral codes will be greatly influenced by our collective
spiritual experiences. And in that sense a subtle but most effective
transformation of world religions during this unique era of 15 years is likely
to take us to a level where the norms solely based on spiritual experiences will
dictate and guide our lives with new level of understanding.
its temporary return to Scorpio (May 28 - Nov 28) the natural as well as
man-made disasters will be on rise, the Palestine-Israel region will lot more of
violence and terrorism. The insurgency in Iraq will escalate, and in
general, the world becomes more anxiety-stricken.
individual level for those who have Scorpio ninefold ascendant should become
careful and prepare for a period of a potential turmoil, especially if Pluto is
a dominant planet in your birth charts.
