Astrologer Elizabeth Cutting helps us understand current events with astrology. We look at the Saturn Pluto conjunction to see the message of letting go of old outworn structures and the potential of escalating conflicts with authority and structures that are resisting change. We examine when this conjunction occurred before WWI and at the end of WWII to see how the current energies can play out. We also discuss the shadow side of Pluto and how we can make the best of the energies. The upcoming Jupiter Saturn conjunction which will be present at the time of the next election in November is also discussed. Despite the chaos, Elizabeth reminds us that we chose to be here at this particular time in history for a reason.
