Whatever you think of the whole Wikileaks thing whether it is treason or the height of patriotism -- from an astrological stand point it epitomizes the concept of Pluto in Capricorn. When Pluto moves into a new sign, something it does every 15 to 20 years, it brings change to society - to the world -- in the area that sign fuels.For instance, when Pluto was in Virgo in the early 1960's we saw the rise of environmental movement and the "feminization of the workplace." Virgo rules health and healthy eating and day to day work situations. When it later moved into Scorpio we saw the sexual revolution. Then when it went into Sagittarius we saw the rise of the "New Age" and spiritual movement. Each sign also has a shadow aspect - to every yin there is a yang. The rise of fundamentalism was the shadow of Pluto in Sagittarius, AIDS the tragic shadow of Scorpio.
Pluto brings to the front those things that were hidden. Women came behind the apron with Virgo. People with different sexual persuasions did during Scorpio's reign and those with alternative religious beliefs during the spin in Sagittarius.
Now that it is in Capricorn we will see changes in structures that hold society together. First, we saw the collapse of the financial system, then, thankfully, we saw the election of the first African American President. What must come to the foreground now are those things that governments, banks and other authority figures wanted to keep hidden... ta da... Wikileaks.
Pluto just moved into Capricorn in 2008 and will be there until 2020 so it will be a long interesting ride. The last time it was in Capricorn was during the American and French Revolutions. See what I mean?
Happy New Year all.
