When I found out that the landmark decision of Roe v. Wade giving autonomy to women over their bodies with regards to having a baby was overturned, I was devastated. I couldn't believe women of my generation and those after living in a North American country will not have the same rights as our mothers and grandmothers. Women who have resources can travel to states where they can get abortions, and those who lack money are left with no legal choices to terminate their pregnancy. We divide society further and further by race and social class, and the most marginalized groups are left in vulnerable positions. For all the progress women have made over the last 50 years, this is a huge step backwards. I know the collective dharma, our sense of right and wrong, has been rapidly decreasing since 2020, and the power abuses in the name of COVID on a disturbing upward trend. Pluto is all about power and control, it makes sense that it's return would cause those in power to ruthlessly seek more of it by forcing their personal ideologies on others. Knowing the majority of the U.S. did not hold anti-abortion views, six Supreme Court justices (five men and one woman) knew they didn't have to be held accountable for the impact their decisions would have on women in their country and most likely influence other countries around the world. I can't help but think, if this decision was really for the best interest of the child, why not invest more in programs for struggling single mothers, extend parental leave, provide larger subsidies for daycare or assist with items such as diapers or formula? None of these are a priority. Instead, women who have been raped, or who are in school, or lack the funds to raise the child and struggle without family support, or those who feel forced to put the child up for adoption, among countless other difficult scenarios, will be forced to carry their baby to term with untold trauma that may take a lifetime to work out. When the mother is not happy, the child cannot be happy. Decisions like this may cause intergenerational trauma and it perpetuates the systemic poverty that influences generations.
Currently in the sky, there is a mars-pluto square which is a very controlling, violent energy that can be greedy, ruthless and power hungry. If you look at the U.S. birth chart, transiting saturn today is sitting exactly on the moon at 24 aqu (moon represents women) and the moon is in the 5th house (of children), so it is a logical consequence that the rights of women to make decisions about their childbearing has been revoked. Saturn is about restrictions, obligations and duty. The U.S. is under immense pressure with saturn conjunct the moon as the moon in vedic astrology represents the mind. The U.S. is in it's most intense phase of sade sati and has reached a boiling point. Saturn making a conjunction to the moon causes grief, sadness, anger, feeling of being stuck and trying your best but going nowhere, and overall depression and anxiety. The pluto return saturn is at 17 aqu which conjuncts the U.S. birth chart 5th house cusp at 16 aqu by 1 degree, saturn's effect on the 5th house is symbolic of a sense of burden and obligation with respect to children, and/or difficulties with child birth and raising a child. Additionally the 5th house cusp is 16 aqu which is being squared by a degree by transiting uranus, so this decision came as a huge shock to people when it was first leaked, and even now as people may have thought public pressure could have stopped it from occurring. In the pluto return, venus rules the 5th house and is weakened by being in an exact conjunction with mars, which is a second rate malefic in vedic astrology. Venus is the feminine principle and mars is the masculine principle and venus being closely conjunct mars suggests women's rights being overpowered by men in power for their own gains. I wrote about the Amber Heard and Johnny Depp trial in my last post, and while I did not take sides as to who is more correct, I think the effect of this trial will be to silence women and empower wealthy men to think their money can allow them to get away with bad behaviour. Saturn is the dispositor of venus in capricorn, and it is at 16 degrees aqu, which is being squared by transiting uranus in taurus now. Uranus will retrograde in August and will go back to 16 tau this November, where it also makes a tight conjunction to the eclipse at 16 tau on Nov 8th. This can be explosive and political decisions over the next year may be game changers. The north and south nodes in the pluto return at 26 tau-26 sco make an exact conjunction and opposition to the most malefic fixed star in the heavens Algol, which is widely understood to be associated with evil, intense anger and sadness, destruction, disasters and violence. The eclipses in November 2021 and May 2022 were very close to this axis at 27 tau and 25 sco respectively, which magnified the malefic energy. In the return chart saturn is in the 9th house of judges and the law, and usually this correlates with judges making excessively conservative decisions. They may think they are being ethical but it is hard to see how they can think this decision is the most compassionate. You are allowing a child in this world with the possibility that critical physical, emotional and mental needs are not being met. The ripple effects of these six judges will be felt for decades.
It will take a long time for this to sink in, how women have been stripped of their power, setting the precedent for further rights of women and other oppressed groups to be taken away as well. Many people believed their government's response to COVID was out of proportion to the risks posed by the disease, and the imposed restrictions a way for governments to gain more power and wealth at the expense of their citizens. Certainly, as a Canadian I have witnessed things occurring that I could have never imagined happening in this tolerant and freedom-loving country prior to 2020. So many people live as if karma is not real with a stunning lack of empathy and respect for other people. Today the majority of the U.S. Supreme Court flaunts their power, thinking they are gods who can get away with anything. They have no idea what they set in motion for their future lives.

It seems like this was destined to occur according to the Pluto return. It is heartbreaking that men still decide what happens to women’s bodies. They started with using COVID to take away people’s right to choose what goes into their bodies, which made way for taking away women’s rights to terminate their pregnancies. I wonder when the sense of decency and respect will return to America.

Once they got this decision overturned, there may be no stopping the havoc they can create knowing they have the power. I heard today Clarence Thomas wants to go after same sex marriage and contraception next. They don’t seem to care at all about people’s freedoms as long as their personal beliefs become law.

The pluto return confirms this decision mainly has to do with stripping women of their power, and giving more control to men. The saturn going over the moon in the 5th is the perfect symbol of this. Who is going to pay for all these medical costs because the states doesn't have free healthcare. People are going to feel trapped and helpless having no choice but to birth a baby they don't have the resources to take care of.

Saturn over the moon is one of the toughest transits I've experienced. My wife who has saturn in her 5th house became pregnant for the first time at age 41, after a miscarriage.

A lot of women are going to die from this decision, so many direct and indirect effects that are being overlooked and underestimated.

I think more men with power and influence have to be vocal about this, it seems like women are the majority speaking out and this is disappointing.

Pluto can have a very dark side, it shows how having too much power can lead to people making horrible decisions that they know hurt people because they know they can get away with it. I hope they have a huge uprising and impeach those idiots.

I’m afraid for the future of my homeland. Desperate people do desperate things and we are going to see more violence in the streets and robberies because people don’t have money or freedom.

I've heard many people with this sentiment lately, what we thought would never happen seems to be happening. There is more inequality and simmering tensions that will one day explode in a way no one sees coming.

What a horrible way to celebrate the 4th of July. I don't feel proud to live in America with this decision setting us back 50 years. The pluto return is causing a lot of damage with people getting carried away with power and control.

What about all the children who will grow up in the foster care and adoption systems? So much trauma there. Yet they allow free access to crazies with guns to take young kids lives. The Supreme Court is so out of touch with the world.

There are going to be so many girls with lost futures because of this stupid decision. When will things turn around for this country to gain back its glory?
