Saturn In Scorpio In Mutual Reception To Pluto In Capricorn

The Sun will square Saturn in Scorpio over the next couple of weeks. Pluto in Capricorn will be involved in a T-square for the better part of a year. This seems a good time to mention the mutual reception between these two planets.

I was talking to a gal the other day. She didn’t feel things were so bad.

“You’re responding to the pressureย and making an effort,” I said. “I think anyone who does this will find support via the mutual reception…”

Have you noticed this? If you sit and do nothing, wait to be rescued, you’re in deeper trouble by the day.

On the other hand, I know a lot of people who are getting themselves together. Quitting smoking. Quitting smoking pot. Learning a new skill. Growing up their game, taking responsibility, losing weight they’re tired of carrying around. etc.

They’re working (Saturn / Cap) to transform (Pluto/Scorp) themselves and it’s happening.

Have you felt the support of the mutual reception?

  1. Ahh, so that’s why I’m growing and changing and it doesn’t feel laboured or painful (within reason!): like putting the effort in and for once having the flow of the river help one move along rather than one working against it.

    Smashing! ^_^

    p.s could this mutual reception help one see things in a less emotionally driven light as in ‘if it needs to be done, it needs to be done and there is no point getting upset about it’?

    Yes, I would say it’s grounding like that.

  3. For me it feels like I’ve spent enough time agonizing about how other people might react to me changing, wondering do I have the resources to transform, fearing will I be able to stick to it, will it hurt to change…. blah blah blah. Time to act, and just plod along moving in the correct direction, take the setbacks in stride and get up and start again if I falter.

    No drama, no fear, just getting s**t done that needs doing in order to move forward. I like this energy.

    And yes, I can see lots of people who are not moving getting deeper and deeper into difficulty each day. But I am no longer thinking about, worrying about, or trying to help those people.

    Everyone has to pick up their own bags and move themselves off the tarmack, get on board the flight to their chosen destination and just go!

  4. Yes, I’m feeling it and working it as best I can. ๐Ÿ™‚ With transiting Pluto working through the middle of my 6th, I’m focusing to getting my health well in hand and it’s going very, very smoothly. *shocked!*

  5. Yes I did. It’s happening with my fiancรฉ. He helped me overcome the worst part of my BPD and I’ve been sticking with him through his last psychotic breakdowns and helping him elaborate the inputs that cause his schizophrenia to get the best of him.

  6. This has been a very hard and testing time but I have been trying to stay aware of the one thing I do have control over: my reaction to my circumstances. And as rough as things are in some ways, I’ve been given so much love and help when needed, as never before. I’m taking this as encouraging data, evidence that I really am changing profoundly.

    Thanks for the post, I hadn’t thought about the mutual reception between these planets…honestly, all I’d been thinking was, Ugh, how dark. Thanks for the positive perspective. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Yes, I feel the effects of the mutual reception; and love your interpretation. Natally, I have the Scorpio-Pluto (and Mars) in mutual reception with my Sun. When I am conscious of my Scorpio depth I am in a far different place then when I am overwhelmed and victimized by it. Seems that same energy is happening with Pluto in Capricorn now in transit (but on the other side of the chart).

    Losing some weight, addressing root causes, aware of the panick-button impulses; and I am an old woman with lots of practical magic in my sewing basket!

    Thanks for this reminder, Elsa.

  8. Virgovixen, still laughing. Get off the tarmack, collect your bags and go…or not, at your peril. Good one!

    Guess I’ll be the lone dissenter. Everything still feels stuck to me despite everything I’ve tried. Pluto is quincunxing my sun and Saturn is squaring my sun for a few more months so lots of painful, internal work and not seeing any external rewards/support yet.

    Hopefully after these transits pass I will be rewarded for everything I’ve done and be able to make some progress again. Or maybe I am making progress but it’s just too hard for me to see because everything is still so gloomy.

  10. I finally made this realization today, so this is timely as always :). I think the full moon gave me the push even though I didn’t like it. Just gonna do what I have to do, one step at a time. You’re the best Elsa ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Its been a while since I checked the elsaboards but I felt such an incredible amount of change I knew astrologically something was up.
    Its been the most emotional month for me. Ive tried to meditate but feel quite blocked. I think last night I finally inched towards some peacefulness. It is quite painful but that comes with acceptance and evolution. Its the only way, to let yourself feel it and cleanse.
    Thanks for this, I will work harder at helping myself and not falling prey to victimizing my own self.
    Peace and love to allll ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. I’ve definitely been learning new skills, taking on challenges, and improving my habits in order to reach my dreams with Saturn in Scorpio sextiling Pluto in Capricorn.

    I’m really glad I came here, the tips here really gave me the motivation I needed to move forward. I still have more to do, but I’ve made a lot of progress this week!

  13. Things do not seem so complicated right now. What seemed like huge tasks previously are now manageable. I thought it was coming off heavy neptune transits but maybe not. Anyway I’m simplifying things while all is clear. And being careful not to take on too much with all this ‘can do’ in the air.

    The strange thing is that I don’t have tolerance for the head spinners. Media or talk gets weird and either I walk or get nauseous.
