We’ve had a lively and productive discussion in the comment section of the recent post about Pluto in Capricorn and pernicious perfectionism. I’d like to share some of our insights with those of you who missed it. One reader described it vividly when she wrote that the level of snobbery and rushing to judgment in the world at large is soul-killing. Several noted that their own surge of perfectionism has their work stalled.
Others thought I was focusing on the negative qualities of Pluto and Capricorn to the exclusion of such positive ones as transformation, healing, and regeneration. It’s true that my frustration at the pain this is causing in the world at large might not have been balanced. (What rant is? Show me someone who can rant and be fair at the same time, and I’ll bow to their superiority.)
My aim–when I’m not on a soapbox–is usually to describe both the positive and the less constructive traits of a planet’s placement so that people know that, given conscious awareness, they can make wise choices. Below are the pluses and minuses we can find in combining Pluto with Capricorn. Mix and match the qualities of the sign and planet to see how you might be using it.
