To the beat of Pluto’s subliminal shamanic drumming, the countdown to 2020 – a year unlike anything you’ve experienced before – has started. From now on, everything matters, everything counts. On October 3rd Pluto turns Direct in Capricorn heading towards the once in 507 years conjunction with Saturn in Capricorn on January 12 2020. This means that all 3 Gamechangers in the dramas of 2020 – Saturn/ Pluto/ Jupiter – are now all moving forward into uncharted territory. You will absolutely feel this shift. It will be palpable, somatic, visceral, intensely emotional and physical.
This is going to be much more impactful than simply Pluto the Great Eliminator moving forward after 5 months of excavating your soul – it’s the catalyst for the 2020 – 2030 Great Transformation. In 2020, 3(!) rare Gateway Cycles end then completely re-boot at the same time. This is the start of a Social and Collective Re-set lasting throughout the next decade to 2030.
Formerly defined in 3D as the Lord of the Underworld, Pluto is uplevelling to 5D Gatekeeper of Source Creation- turning direct in a star gathering of Chariklo/ Arawn/ Saturn/ the South Node of Fate/ Eris – the Female Awakener – and Haumea – bringer of epochal events. Definitely a punctuation point in Time.
This is the 3rd pass of Pluto over 20 degrees Capricorn. The Gatekeeper of Truth works to a 1-2-3 step strategy, first passing over then retrograding twice back over the same degree. Check these dates for the threads in your own life:
1st pass throughout 2018: losses, collapse of old structures – money, relationships, career – disruption of your outer world + no road ahead on your old path.
2nd Retrograde Pass during April – October 2019: nothingness, being in limbo or the void without maps + your old comfort zones eliminated.
3rd Pass Direct in October 2019-2020: a surge of authenticity, regeneration and life force through a resolution of polarities – an integrated higher level of operating. Both Saturn and Pluto bring the light of Truth – unequivocal straight down the line, tell-it-like-it-is Truth with a capital T.

The Chandra Symbol for Pluto Direct CAPRICORN 20:
Many Different Perfumes carried by a Breeze.
“You bear within you many past lives, each one complete, autonomous. There are points along the journey when you must stand together with the whole line-up of your previous selves and follow the path they were all leading to. You are destiny-charged in a larger-than-life fashion. Being self-possessed is your watchword. There is so much to accomplish. And at the centre of the journey lies self-knowledge and the overriding determination to clear the karmic slate, to free up what has been trapped and bound and to come to yourself afresh. This destiny-will is guided, cosmically supported, centrally relevant to your whole world, and you will do it. Turn the darkest of hours into the brightest breakthroughs by refusing to stop anywhere or to back down from your resolve to wake up this time and get on with the greater path, at long last.”
Aries Week Ahead Forecast: September 29-October 6, 2019
For the next 3 weeks as the inner planets pass through Libra, your opposite sign, all four angles of your solar chart are activated. The Angles are the underpinnings of your life, your very foundations. As Pluto turns forward on Thursday October 3rd in your angle of career and life direction, everything counts and everything matters. All your relationships-personal, professional, are being adjusted to match your current frequency. Notice how some friends and alliances simply fall off your radar and how others seem far less appealing. Ask yourself:” Does X lift me or drain me?” and trust your instinctive response. It’s a time to clear your ecology by being sensitive to who and what is no longer on your wavelength.
A changing of the guard.
Taurus Week Ahead Forecast: September 29 – October 6, 2019
This is a week of a Pluto direct storm. This means that there’s no cutting corners, no hiding your head in the sand. Thursday 3rd October is a date to remind yourself of this as Pluto turns forward and Mercury enters Scorpio, your opposite sign. The message is uncompromising: “The Truth, the whole Truth and nothing but the Truth”. You may be asked to keep secrets or discover something that shifts your view of someone close. Be extra sensitive with your words this week, whether in posts, texts, emails or face to face. Hold a space for people who need it and cut everyone, including yourself some slack. As a Taurean, awakener Uranus in your sign is gifting you with insight, intuition and sometimes telepathy but it’s a two edged sword to use with care.
Learning to master the magic.
Gemini Week Ahead Forecast: September 29 – October 6, 2019
Whenever change agent Pluto changes direction, you feel the storm for days before and after. The stakes become high and everything matters much more than usual. For you as a Gemini, finances of all kinds are under scrutiny-yes, again! And doubly so since your personal planet Mercury enters Pluto ruled Scorpio on Thursday 3rd turning detective and working below the radar. See this week as the time to wrap up old business, clearing the way for a new direction. There is something interesting brewing and percolating as far as your purpose and wellbeing are concerned, but it’s a little too early to see the green shoots.
Streamline and simplify your financial systems.
Cancer Week Ahead Forecast: September 29 – October 6, 2019
When threshold planet Pluto turns forward as he does on Thursday 3rd October, you know that it’s time to take stock. This Pluto storm lasting all week is not light hearted energy especially as it occurs on the heels of the seismic Super New Moon. Everything seems to be more high stakes than usual as chickens come home to roost. As a Cancerian, this long Pluto transit (2008-2023) through your opposite sign is teaching you extreme resilience and adaptability. These are gifts that will be yours for life. So instead of focusing on all the chaos outside, enjoy the sanctuary of your amazing inner resources. Whether that’s by losing yourself in art, music, dance, nature, how you deep dive doesn’t matter. Just trust your instincts.
Losing yourself in your gifts.
Leo Week Ahead Forecast: September 29 – October 6, 2019
This is a week of anything but light hearted energy. That doesn’t mean it’s bad news, rather that change is now no longer an option and the stakes have just got higher. As reality planet Pluto turns forward on Thursday October 3rd and Mercury enters Pluto’s own sign of Scorpio, no matter what is happening outside, put your physical health and wellbeing right at the top of your priorities. Look at what currently passes for your work/life balance and realign it in your favour. There are endless demands on your time but only a few things can be called essential. Weigh up how to do more of what lights your fire and less of going through the motions.
You are the sky, everything else is just weather.
Virgo Week Ahead Forecast: September 29 – October 6, 2019
On Thursday 3rd October, change agent Pluto turns forward after 5 months of working under the radar. At the same time your personal planet Mercury enters Pluto’s own sign of Scorpio. The planetary message is uncompromising: only radical honesty will cut it. In the outside world, expect chickens to come home to roost along with hubris and revelations. In your own world, make sure that everything you write, post, text or speak is pitch perfect and designed to build rapport. People around you are extra sensitive at the moment and it would be easy to be enmeshed in crossed wires. Your intention behind your words is everything. If you aim for win/win, it will come back to you many times over.
Putting your Virgoan gifts of sensory acuity to good use.
Libra Week Ahead Forecast: September 29 – October 6, 2019
Last Saturday’s Super New Moon blew strong winds of change through your life-inner and outer and the implications will take a while yet to roll out. Meanwhile, undercover agent Pluto turns forward on Thursday October 3rd just as Mars enters Libra. Your most pressing call to action involves noticing just how often you prevent yourself from doing something by worrying about what family and friends might think. It’s become an entrenched automatic reaction. All your astrology from now through 2020 has one central theme at its heart which is expanding your world by following your own judgment and guidance.
Becoming self-directed instead of other directed.
Scorpio Week Ahead Forecast: September 29 – October 6, 2019
This is not light hearted energy but in many ways you’re in your element and feeling at home in your own skin. That’s down to your personal planet Pluto turning forward again on Thursday October 3rd after 5 months of working under the radar plus communicator Mercury entering Scorpio bringing all your connections and relationships up for a closer look. As the investigative detective of the 12 signs, take a forensic approach asking:” Does this relationship lift me or drain me?”. If it drains you, it has to go. Do the same with old beliefs that you’ve inherited but which are preventing you from full self-expression. This is an exercise in updating your inner files, wiping old data, freeing you up to expand your world view.
Clearing the decks.
Sagittarius Week Ahead Forecast: September 29 – October 6, 2019
For you as a Sagittarian, the astrological climate is shifting and you will definitely notice the energy change this week. On Thursday October 3rd Pluto turns forward after 5 months of behind the scenes influence on your finances, income and resources. Meanwhile, your personal planet Jupiter has only 8 weeks left in your own sign where he’s been helping you dream large. Frame the next 3 months as an exciting exercise in keeping your biggest vision in mind and turning it into reality. The emphasis will definitely be on the practical realist end of the equation. Since you’ve acquired a whole toolkit of creative resources in the last year, this will be more enjoyable than it sounds.
Eyes on the horizon, feet on the ground.
Capricorn Week Ahead Forecast: September 29 – October 6, 2019
The big picture is that you are now entering one of the most significant periods of your life, which will lift you out of much that is familiar and set you down in entirely new territory. Keep that in mind and measure the twists and turns of this week and this month against it to keep your perspective. This Thursday October 3rd, Pluto turns forward in Capricorn at odds with Venus in your angle of career and life direction. The way to collaborate with Pluto means radical truth, no compromises, no cutting corners and pruning everything back to root and branch essentials. All you’ve got to lose is a false sense of security, but you have the world to gain.
No turning back.
Aquarius Week Ahead Forecast: September 29 – October 6, 2019
With so much change happening in the deepest part of your chart in the engine room of your psyche at the level of your unconscious, it must feel like outgrowing an old skin and being part way through the shedding process. To put this season of transformation into perspective, at the moment there are no answers, only the right questions. To quote poet Rilke’s wise words: Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along into the answer.
There is nothing to do, be or practice-real growth and transformation happens in its own perfect timing.
Pisces Week Ahead Forecast: September 29 – October 6, 2019
If you’ve been struggling against the current for the last few months, on Thursday the tide turns. Pluto moves forward in your zone of priorities, values and alliances bringing Truth- with a capital T -to bear on your reality. Look back over what has worked and what has been left by the wayside since April. Can you identify the strategies you used to create results? This astrology has enormous potential as long as you harness it. The way to do that is by doing more of Pluto by finding the shortest way between your creative and career goals and new sources of revenue, by pruning everything right back to essentials, consolidating and prioritising. Like Sagittarius, it’s all about holding the big picture vison whilst turning it into bite sixed steps in real time.
Once you learn to extract the nuggets, your Piscean dreams and visions are a potential goldmine.
