Collectively when the nodes change polarity the zeitgeist of the times shifts as well. The nodal shift challenges us to find a balance between the following qualities; home versus career, sensitivity and utility, compassion and competence. In other words, a balance between our need to belong Cancer and our need to excel Capricorn. Both Cancer and Capricorn are two sides of the same coin; security, structure and belonging.
Because the south node, or karmic position, is in Capricorn, qualities of its energy are most in need of healing over the next eighteen months. Every sign is equivalent in its gifts and deficits. But when a sign is in its south nodal placement it acts up.
For an individual this may suggest a past life wound. Therefore, expect south node Capricorn to trigger collective work through expressions of fear, loneliness and world weariness. The solution? The nodes, like everything in astrology, is a cycle. To understand the emotional themes of the Cancer-Capricorn polarity in effect until June of we will explore previous similar cycles during the years of and Prediction relies on previous description!
We think of Capricorn energy as the master of competence; the CEO, the leader, the authority. Too much of any energy throws it off balance. Too much Capricorn is relentless ambition; that goat climbing to the point of exhaustion. This theme of loneliness will be a recurrent one over the next year and a half. Does this sound familiar?
Capricorn reflects a pyramidal structure often reflected by the culture of the corporation, big business, government. What is the price of success? Getting to the top comes with a cost; world-weariness. Consider the Greek myth of Sisyphus who was condemned to an eternity of rolling a boulder uphill then watching it roll back down again as soon as the summit was reached. Talk about frustration!
When our best efforts become thwarted by impossible circumstances the negative side of Capricorn kicks in; frustration which leads to despair, desolation and depression. Fear is another strong negative theme for Capricorn. Why does Capricorn energy struggle so for success? Saturn dips into Aquarius your house of intimacy from March July 1 and returns there to stay on December This is a time for going deep and getting real!
As threatening as this feels, it could be a healthy sign of growth. After all, Cancer, the strongest couples are together because they want to be—not because they need to be. The only trouble? Be proactive and use February-April as Venus, the sun, and Mercury move through Aries to get clear on your top priorities and make your plan of attack. But not this year, Cancer! But fortunately, two eclipses in your house of work lunar on June 5, solar on December 14 make it easier to let that counterproductive attitude go.

Figuratively and literally, Uranus rules shock, — shocking events, inventions, electricity, and people Aquarians. He is the revolutionary, and prefers freedom and chaos to order, particularly if old structures hinder rather than serve. Leave structure to Saturn.
Much will depend on where Uranus falls in individual charts, and how it aspects planetary positions within the chart. The third biggest planet, Neptune is a gas giant with no discernable surface below its swirling outer mists. Neptune also rules the dream realms and magic. He wants us to be compassionate, but he can also turn sleazy — con artists, confusion, illusion, smoke and mirrors; film and video, addiction, escape, and guilt.
There can also be religious or cultural persecution and victimization on large scales. Neptune Rx impacts geopolitics, cultures, and societies. The lord of the sea is not as personal as other planetary retrogrades.
Mainstream news may report sleazy activities, cover-ups, and the man behind the curtain running the smoke machine. There can be public false accusations and misuse of power.
Pluto is tiny, cold, and very far away. Its discovery in ushered us into the atomic age, and nothing has been the same since. Pluto is also named for the Roman god of the underworld. Pluto, co-ruler of Scorpio, is the lord of death, rebirth and transformation. Like the great goddess Kali, Pluto will rip away identities, cherished beliefs, vanities, situations and people that have become irrelevant.
His illuminated side is transformation to higher levels and dimensions, and power subjugated and rededicated to the service of all. Like Neptune and Uranus, Pluto, as an outer planet, expresses himself through big geopolitical activity and reality-changing scientific discoveries and breakthroughs. But his retrogrades can be useful.
For those interested in doing some heavy spiritual and psychological lifting, Pluto Rx is a good time to confront the shadow. We all have one. The sneaky shadow can drive us to do things that are at cross-purposes with our better instincts and basic goodness.
It can show up as procrastination, indifference, arrogance, or destructive impulses. They shun the light. Again, we all have them. Do not succumb to the vanity that you are uniquely worse than others, or that your shame is more profound. By simply grabbing on and confronting the feelings, and staying with the experience, the shadow begins to fall apart.
Judgement of others and self, criticism and condemnation, or self-loathing are all aspects of the shadow, and Pluto Rx is standing by to help you do battle.
