A friend called me today all upset about the speed of time. "I know time speeds up when you get older but this is crazy. Thing are flying by way too fast. What is going on?
What is going on is Pluto has moved into Capricorn. Last week I mentioned how that change is and will continue to effect the structures of society. That is just one sphere of influence for Capricorn, the sign I affectionately refer to as the "Old Goat." (Capricorn's symbol is the goat.)
Capricorn also rules time. Makes sense, right? Capricorn rules form and structure. What structures us more than the clock, the sun rising and setting - time?
So for the next few decades as Pluto grinds through the Capricorn constellation - time is going to go a bit hay-wire. No, we aren't going to all vanish onto another realm on Jan. 1, 2012 - I don't care what the Mayan's did or didn't write. However, be prepared to see the speed of time increase and the effects of time on our bodies change.
Time stepping up its pace a bit actually started when Uranus was discovered in 1781. Uranus is the only planet that spins on its side and is associated with sudden changes and advances that move mankind relentless into the future. After it showed itself to us, the industrial and then scientific revolutions began. In the past, generations would live almost exactly like those which came before - suddenly massive changes started in the way we live and one generation would not recognize the life style of the one before. That is all thanks to Uranus.
Now that Pluto will be forcing changes to the way we see time, the "good old days" will be anything that happened last week!
