This is a special rerun of Fran Smith's Column
Welcome to “Starcast”—an absorbing look into what the Cosmos has in store for the 12 sun-signs.
As our solar system moves forward, let’s think about the changes, even the transformation, that’s occurred—for each of us—during the past four months, since January 1, 2013. These changes can be traced to the planet, Pluto (slow-moving transformation), which glided smoothly from one sun-sign—Sagittarius, the Centaur (half human/half horse)—into the next, Capricorn, the Mountain Goat (forever climbing up the narrow and dangerous ledge toward achievement and success), last November 26, 2008. For nearly 14 years!
That’s quite astounding, as Pluto in Capricorn now makes its way steadily forward through 2013—and beyond until November 19, 2024—except for a brief back and forth through Aquarius, the Water Bearer (pouring the waters of Truth on Humankind), from January 20 to September 1, 2024, before finally leaving Capricorn for Aquarius on November 19, 2024 (absolutely, a “Starcast” for another time).
Noteworthy: Verify for yourself the stunning effect of Pluto’s (a co-ruler with the planet, Mars—aggressive energy—of Scorpio, the Scorpion) concentrated and life-altering energy, now advancing forward through whichever House (there are 12) that Capricorn rules in your own birth chart. No one is ever excluded. Visualize at a numerical clock. That’s the zodiac wheel; that’s your birth chart, too, in which each pie-shaped wedge is a house—an area of activity (love, money—in every currency imaginable—work, and so on) in your daily existence, one of which Capricorn governs. Know that this influence (Pluto in Capricorn) thrives amid vivid circumstances that will teach you about change as well as a new way of thinking and handling all matters with focus, simplicity, and timely action. And that’s pure transformation!
Here’s how Pluto’s long journey through Capricorn, the Mountain Goat, affects the 12 sun-signs within the 12 houses of the zodiac wheel.
ARIES March 21-April 20 The 10th House: Career and Advancement. Your thoughts are on your work, and how to improve it. Here’s a suggestion: Create a Master List with your key goals. Then, drop in the steps and the solutions required for success, next to each goal. SIDESTEP uncertainty and confusion.
TAURUS April 21-May 20 The 9th House: People, Plans, and Projects—near and at a distance. Scintillating new ideas as well as outside-the-box concepts have your undivided attention. Tackle each idea and concept; work only with those that you can do now! SIDESTEP being difficult, if not impossible, to find.
GEMINI May 21-June 20 The 8th House: Revitalization, on all levels—mental, emotional, physical, financial, and spiritual. Allow new insights and new points-of-view to fill your thoughts. And while doing this, constantly dissolve even a hint of negativity—yours or someone else’s. SIDESTEP doubting your intuition.
CANCER June 21-July 22 The 7th House: Special Arrangements; the Sought-After Contract. Everyone wants to be with you. But you tend now to be the reclusive You. Don’t. Step out into the light—and let the world-at-large know precisely what you have to offer. SIDESTEP clinging to outdated systems.
LEO July 23-August 22 The 6th House: Your Working Environment and Relations with Close Associates. Gain is at hand, if you work closely with new trends and a new way of doing the essentials. Be the natural leader, but be the understanding one. SIDESTEP skimming the surface of vital material.
VIRGO August 23-September 22 The 5th House: Close Ties and Creative Matters. This has been a time of remarkable events, especially as it applies to your relationships—of all kinds. Separate the professional from the personal, before you decide what to do next. SIDESTEP refusing to let your true feelings be known.
LIBRA September 23-October 22 The 4th House: Home. This includes your base-of-operations—where-you-live and where-you-work. Know that transformation is underway, as you now grow in wisdom and insight. Stay true to your love of partnership. SIDESTEP being concerned about what others think.
SCORPIO October 23-November 22 The 3rd House: Communications. Allow for the changing, on your part, of some long-held beliefs. However, it’s a good idea to keep your own counsel about this. Means that secrecy, a favorite method of yours, is still the best! SIDESTEP the sarcastic remark—yours or someone else’s.
SAGITTARIUS November 23-December 21 The 2nd House: Income, Possessions, and Lifestyle. Relax that tendency of yours to be critical, especially of your own efforts regarding attempts to increase your income. Instead, turn your attention to encouraging any and all of those current endeavors. SIDESTEP a lack of direction.
CAPRICORN December 22-January 19 The 1st House: Your Personal Efforts. Step back and realize that you’re in a cycle when you can actually have the desires-of-your-heart. But you must first decide what those desires are. And keep your focus on them—no matter what! SIDESTEP refusing to send an important text message.
AQUARIUS January 20-February 18 The 12th House: Secret Strategy-Planning Sessions. There’s so much that you can now accomplish, if you accept the fact that an enormous amount of worthwhile activity is going on behind-the-scenes. Continue to develop those plans! SIDESTEP a refusal to let a past dispute dissolve.
PISCES February 19-March 20 The 11th House: Your Secret Agenda. Work with clarity in all matters that involve getting-what-you-want. This is a time of major list-making, as well as serious blueprinting, on your part. Enjoy the process fully; and above all, stay on course. SIDESTEP not being in the moment.
