Pluto is about destruction and Capricorn is about time. Water damage, water shortages, fires, explosions, bombs, (foreign and domestic) threats and acts of terrorism will be rampant, volcanoes will erupt, there will be an increase in tornadoes, an increase in hurricanes, more earthquakes in 2013, a heavy emphasis on ice, fires resulting from weather related disasters and other fires in general, strong wind storms and more avalanches. Since Pluto represents decay, we can continue to see more sinkholes and collapses in the ground or collapses in structures which have deteriorated due to decay.
Capricorn also rules our jobs/careers. By the time this transit ends, the way we work will change/transform dramatically. More people will work from home, work longer hours for less pay and some people will have to perform more work in less time. The way we view our jobs universally will be changing. It's all about taking what is not working or what has been taken from you (like your job) and rebuilding from the ground up (starting over).
The infrastructures of buildings, freeways, tunnels, train tracks and bridges will be addressed as we realize that these are not as sturdy as we had once thought they were. Government, politicians and corruption will be in the news throughout this entire transit. However, Pluto reveals what is hidden, so it's entirely possible that we will get a sneak peek into areas of misconduct and corruption like we did with John Edwards, General Petraeus, the Secret Service and their involvement with prostitutes and corruption regarding financial misappropriation taking place in our government.
Capricorn represents the government and Pluto is all about death and tearing down in order to rebuild. We have now seen same sex marriage become legal, two states legalizing marijuana and a new government (from the election of 2012). This is only the beginning. By the time this transit ends, the USA as we know it will have a very different type of government that is barely recognizable come 2024.
A side note:
Uranus in Aries - 2011 - 2019
Head injuries, concussions and head traumas continue to be areas that make the news. The brain as it relates to head injuries/traumas will be explored as we learn more about these injuries (how serious they are and how they affect the brain long term). Barack Obama made a public statement about the issue this year, so we will continue to expect to learn about and hear about people affected with injuries to the head. More people will suffer head injuries and this will make the news, as will the long term effects they have on people who experience them. Many athletes, regular citizens and prominent people will experience falls and head injuries.
There will be breakthroughs as scientists teach us about new discoveries in these areas. The eyes are also a concern as we will hear about new ways of dealing with vision loss and how science is coming up with solutions to retinal problems. Headaches will be a big topic as will be problems with sleep. The brain in general and how it functions will be emphasized by scientists who will discover and announce to the public new information regarding diagnosis and treatments. Aries rules the head, so we can expect to hear about innovations in these areas and they will come to our immediate attention. Examples in the news: Hilary Clinton and the recent news about football and the head injuries associated with playing this sport addressed by the president.
Uranus is also referred to as the planet of revolution. Uranus in Aries rules war and brings about continuous extremist groups who force their opinions on others via violence. We will see increased racism unfortunately (worldwide), a heavy emphasis on illegal immigrants (in the USA) and we can expect more radical religious movements (in the US and worldwide). With Uranus in Aries, we see surprises such as more removal of troops in the Middle East or on the flip side of Uranus - we could be subjected to even more radical groups coming forward in mainstream culture.
Neptune in Pisces - 2012 - 2026
Health, illness and the wellness of others (mind, body and spirit, psychology and the mental health of others), will play important roles during Neptune in Pisces. Psychology becomes popular and psychologists explain/teach us about the serious disorders of others.
Saturn in Scorpio - 2012- 2014
The topics of sex, birth and death (although common and really everyday issues) will be highlighted and make the news. We will see and hear way too much information where sex and unexpected deaths are involved. There will be a fascination with "baby fever," resulting in an increase in births.
