Bigger is Better, More is Magnificent

...or so Sagittarius believes

On many astrology blogs I find the phrase, ‘this is the big one’, or the words ‘unprecedented success and joy’ to describe an upcoming astrological event. I’ve been seeing these phrases or similar ones quite often lately. What will we read when Pluto goes into Capricorn? Will we be told that we’ll have less of something when an aspect or eclipse happens? Since Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn, will we see more words of loss, limitation, boundaries, difficulties, or responsibility?

I’ve heard so many times that an eclipse, aspect, or retrograde will bring astounding, wonderful, changes. This is becoming redundant. I hope we don’t take this for granted or start to disbelieve astrology. It’s hard to see the benefits when the TV is drowning us in negativity.

I find over embellishment frequently in New Age writing. It’s just like Sagittarius to want to uplift people, to say things that make you feel good all the time, to say that there are good times around the corner. I know one spiritual author, (not an astrologer) who has been saying we are turning the corner in our evolution, and she’s been saying this for several years. Actually, every year she says this is the year that the big change is happening. Each year she phrases it a little differently, but still means the same thing. Maybe that's why she has fewer students; they finally gave up.

My point is that Pluto in Sagittarius has brought a desire for optimism, abundance, and big things, (cars, money, and homes). This desire is reflected in more than just material things. This desire for “bigger and better” has reached into every facet of our lives, into education, travel, physical desire, thoughts, and choice of words. I know I find myself frequently reaching out for expansive, cheerful, catchy, words.

Sagittarius is about higher education. Our universities are overwhelming students with bigger, and so-called better education. Is it better for the student’s education or the university’s pockets? Have expectations become unrealistic just to compete with other countries (Sagittarius) or cultures (also Sagittarius)? So many students end up partying anyway, which Sagittarius likes to do. If the qualifications are so high, how do they graduate? This must be frustrating for teachers.

Will Pluto in Capricorn correct this imbalance? Will a diploma alone get you a job? Will businesses go back to hands-on training? A few companies already have this policy, and some are charging for the training.

Capricorn is about downsizing. Will we see smaller companies with more control? If you own your own business, you know your business depends on the quality of your workers, and you won’t easily cave-in to “good-ol-boy” hiring. (This is a term used in the US for hiring someone connected to a friend. This is also known as country club hiring.) Capricorn may like knowing the right people, but only if there is a reward in return.

The eclipse on 3/18/07 (EDT) is making a square to Pluto in Sagittarius. New Moon eclipses are about beginnings, but there is no light, so we must founder in the dark, and use inner and higher guidance, especially with the eclipse in the sign Pisces. Will the eclipse help us realize the dream, or will its square give us a wake-up call? Are we being prepared for Pluto's entrance into Capricorn?

Blogging tip: you'll drive more traffic to your site by choosing words that attract attention. What a conundrum - truth or traffic.

Interesting that "The Secret" has come out during this time.

Not to justify what she's saying, but "turning the corner" could take decades!

Thanks for a great blog.

I agree evolution, and what some people call "ascension", will not necessarily happen overnight, at least not for everyone, and not for me. That type of evolution is not a responsibility that I want to heap on my shoulders, although I'll keep trying.

"The Secret" and "What the Bleep" have good messages, even though they may by only smatterings of truth. If they're kept in perspective, they'll yield something good.

Teachers will be saying something different in a few years. Some of them are changing already and giving a more practical (Capricorn) slant on how to live a better life.

In that sense, I am practical. I observe what works and use it.

Thanks for your comment.
