My guest in this episode of the Radiant Astrology Podcast is Sherene Vismaya, an astrologer and Jungian analyst based in San Francisco, CA. We has such an illuminating discussion on the current station retrogrades of Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn and their significance in our personal lives as well as in the collective unconscious.
The Saturn-Pluto conjunction is becoming even tighter, exact in January 2020, and as the planet of karmic responsibility closes in on the planet of the subconscious, we’re on the precipice of getting real with the state of humanity, society and our collective shadow. The retrogrades of these powerful archetypes are inviting us to deeply reflect upon our own power complexes, leadership capacity and the responsibility we assume for our lives and destiny.
I also discuss about how the Game of Thrones series reflects much of the sense of a will to power and the formation of leadership within. The big question to ask ourselves is, what is true power and how can we use it as a force to arise to our own destiny rather than toward domination and control?
