The Saturn Pluto Opposition October 15, 2001
Why War? Why Now? The Saturn/Pluto Opposition.
Saturn and Pluto became actively engaged in conflict on August 5th, 2001. This geometrical aspect is called an “Opposition.” (180 degrees) Basically, Saturn and Pluto are standing face to face to one another. The dates of exact opposition are -- August 5th, 2001, November 2nd, 2001, and May 26th, 2002.
One way to picture an opposition is to imagine two people on a teeter-totter. When the teeter-totter is balanced, and the riders are exactly opposite, they can see each other. Oppositions provide the maximum awareness of “one thing to another.” In any opposition you can choose to listen, respond and cooperate, or you can choose to fight. Either way, you must relate. Blending and uniting concepts that are opposed is the goal.
What must blend?
