Pluto is the planet of terror and transformation, power and purging. The sign and house it transits is the area of life that most requires a purging of corruption. Since 2008, Pluto has been in Capricorn, the sign of big business and big government, the patriarchy and the police state. These are the areas of life that are being purged and transformed by the current Pluto transit. The following articles have been published in the last few weeks, each one has a serious Pluto in Capricorn component to it:
