Today, briefly, I would like my readers (Australian in particular) to observe the synchronicity between the first pass of the Jupiter-Pluto’s trine (harmonious aspect of 120 degrees) on July 8, 2011, and the news, out on the same day, that the Australian Labor government did finally get the number to pass the controversial Carbon Tax (tax on big polluters, with the aim to cut emissions and make a small contribution to the fight against global warming). The second pass of the same transit will happen at the end of October this year, and the third, and last, in March 2012.
As I have observed in an article I just sent to The Art of Healing quarterly: ‘Positively this Transit could inspire passion for higher causes, broadening the collective’s views (Jupiter) on the management of natural resources and sustainability issues (Pluto). The power to effect social changes could be amplified.’
The harmonious angle between expansive Taurus Jupiter and Capricorn Pluto, planet of natural resources, mining, and big corporate capital, seemed to be auspicious for promoting more enlightened views on the use of those resources. Also, borrowing words repeated ad nauseam by the leader of the opposition, Liberal Tony Abbott, this aspect is incarnating, after all, into a Big (Jupiter) Tax (Pluto)!
I know that such marvelous synchronicity will not impress the skeptics, but it is of great value to sincere students of Astrology.
Here is the Chart of the first pass of this transit, calculated for Canberra, Australia’s National Capital.
No time for more today. ‘Til next time, enjoy your transits.
