The taking down of patriarchy and entitlement (especially sexual entitlement) among the rich and powerful has never been more impactful than this year, thanks to Jupiter in Scorpio playing its song against the long-term, generational epic of Pluto in Capricorn (now playing at a theatre near you through 2024!).
While exposing sexual scandals has always been a part of the news, the ones happening now are reaching deep, really deep ... into the very fabric and structure of society. Of our foundation of beliefs, and our subconscious programming. These are changes for the ages.
As women, we've been resigned about the culture of sexual harassment for decades.
But really, it's gone on for millennia. Ever since the matriarchal system gave way to patriarchy, there's been an imbalance of power.
These firings and scandals, and the public disclosure of sexual trauma held in the shadows all these decades, are part of an even larger picture emerging, one that is fundamental and will last for the ages.
Jupiter just started its dance through Pluto-ruled Scorpio last month, so it certainly ain't over yet! More -- a lot more -- dominoes will continue to fall.
And it's caused by something we have tended to forget: the light that shines forth for a healthy, balanced, sustainable society. The light that is being birthed and continues to emerge.
Purge to emerge (hey, is that a rap tune?) might be the theme song of Jupiter and Pluto right now (helped by Neptune in Pisces, ruling the entertainment business) as they uncover deception and speak truth to the masses.
Individually, we might ask ourselves: Where in my life am I unconscious, especially where it concerns my primal life force, my sexuality, my power?
Where have I deceived myself and others?
What kind of beliefs and lies have I built my life on, that I didn't even realize were there, that need to shift?
The great Terence McKenna put it brilliantly: "What blinds us, or makes historical progress very difficult, is our lack of awareness of our ignorance." Pluto heard the call, and so did Jupiter. Now it's time to hug the donkey, as Lt. Gordon Malloy would say on the hit TV show The Orville, and do that work. The glory hole awaits!
