He got this role in , and the film was released in , coming out of the Saturn-Pluto conjunction. Schwarzenegger was not the only person locking into this Saturn-Pluto event.
Linda Hamilton, who plays the steely badass Sarah Connor was born under the Saturn-Pluto square in Michael Biehn who plays Reese, a freedom fighter from the future, was also born under that same Saturn-Pluto square from Could there be a more perfect description of Saturn taken to a Plutonian extreme than the Terminator? Back to Schwarzenegger — he was first asked to run for Governor in — in the midst of the next Saturn-Pluto opposition. It was from this opposition that he eventually became the Governor of California, where he was also known as the Governator.
It will be interesting to see what new role he comes to at this next Saturn-Pluto phase. He and Linda Hamilton will be starring in Terminator: Dark Fate in November , potentially their last turns in their Terminator roles. Will he continue to carry on his political career in , starting the next phase? All we know is that the Saturn-Pluto conjunction will be a recurrence transit, and in this case, the end of an era. You would have to look at the previous conjunctions, squares and oppositions between Saturn and Pluto to determine what specific theme runs through those times.
This might be setting the bar a little low, but one pronounced fear during the last Saturn-Pluto conjunction of was the threat of nuclear annihilation. This coincidentally followed two actual close calls with nuclear annihilation in September and November when Saturn was within a few degrees of Pluto. So the conjunction presents many of our worst fears, since Pluto empowers the Saturnian motivation of fear.
Whether those fears actually come to pass is another question. You can rest easy now! Back in ancient Mesopotamia, solar eclipses were regarded as bad omens for leaders, and still are to some degree.
Because apparently all it takes to avoid a cosmically ordained destiny is a little sleight-of-hand trickery. A mistaken identities scenario fit for a disappointing local county pantomime is apparently enough to offset the very will of the gods. A little razzle-dazzle tap-dance showstopper with jazz hands will distract even the mightiest cosmic order, apparently. In any case, maybe this is dumb, but instead of letting yourself be the subject of this transit, you could intentionally choose something else to become the subject of the transit.
How does one act like Saturn? Saturn weighs, scrutinizes, criticizes, and bears down wherever it goes. Now this might be an exercise in futility. Killing a cockroach to be a stand-in for your own transits portending your own death will likely not stop you from dying, if that is your fate at that time. But free will is an extremely convincing illusion, so illude away!
At least this way you get to pick your poison.
You could think of this in terms of the house Saturn and Pluto are passing through in your chart. Maybe this means paring down your style to be more functional, simple, ascetic, age-appropriate. Maybe this means giving up on covering up the bald spots and embracing a fully shaven head. Maybe this means giving up on coloring your hair and embracing your destiny as a silver fox or silver vixen, or a white fox or a white vixen. With Pluto in the mix however, it might be something more extreme than just a makeover, something which reflects a dramatic internal transformation as well as an external one at this time.
Weigh how much value it really has to you. Make some of your money back through a yard sale, or put some things on the Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist or ebay. For extra Saturn points though, you could donate it to Goodwill or think of other people in your life who could use it, and give it away freely. With Pluto in the mix however, there is something especially traumatic or cathartic about the process of going through your old possessions.
In a house associated with everything quick, mobile and fleeting, Saturn and Pluto could slow things down to a grinding halt. Maybe this is a time when your typical mode of transportation is out of commission, or your local area is being dug up and renovated, and you have to find new ways around to get where you want to go, or a new commute becomes a long arduous bore.
With Pluto in the mix, there is something especially profound or rotten about this area of your life at this time.

This could mean moving back to take on the responsibility of caring for elderly or unwell family members. With Pluto in the mix, there is something especially traumatic or cathartic about this area of your life at this time.
If you have no plans to move, maybe evaluate how secure your home is and consider an emergency preparedness plan. Stock up on supplies, just in case.
Maybe sacrifice the security of familial help or the comfort of having your own place far away from them, and embrace the responsibility of being part of a family. In the context of children, it could mean embracing your responsibilities to them rather than indulging them, even if they reject you. It could also mean accepting that there are limits to how much you can control them. With Pluto in the mix, there is something especially profound and transformative about this area of your life at this time.

Sacrifice comfort, feel the burn. With Pluto in the mix, the stakes may be especially high in this area of your life at this time.

If you are currently single, relationships may arise in which there may be some utilitarian advantage for one of the parties, alongside affection and companionship.
There could also be the possibility for manipulation and coercion through unbalanced power dynamics. With Pluto in the mix, there may be something especially poisonous or profound in this area of your life at this time.

Perhaps the sacrifice you could make in this case is to forgive a debt owed to you. Perhaps reflect on those who have passed on in your life and consider what they would have wanted you to do in their memory, or what they would have wanted for you. Honor their wishes in some way. With Pluto in the mix, this may be an especially spooky and profound episode in your life at this time. Whatever you sacrifice should be something that hurts a bit to give.

With Pluto in the mix, this may be an especially profound and humbling area of your life in this time. This can be a time of great advancement but also perilous at such a great height. You may find yourself in morally compromised situations involving coercion and manipulation.

This may mean you have to give up having certain people as friends or colleagues, either because they are no longer of real use or benefit to you, or because you have to stand up for a less popular colleague for an important reason which causes you disfavor with others.
You may have to choose who your real friends are, who your real allies are. You may have to give up awards and accolades which are not due to you and give credit where you know it is properly deserved. With Pluto in the mix, there is something especially trying and profound in this area of your life in this time. Maybe you could sacrifice the spotlight and give a boost to those you consider deserving and are little known, try using your own power and platform to raise up others. You may find yourself in quiet, isolated places, by your own volition or not.
Never to say what they did was okay, but to not bother yourself anymore with them. Insulate yourself from these less pleasant characters in your existence. This may be as simple as walking away from an argument on social media, letting someone get the last word in, pulling off the road and counting to Maybe you can sacrifice the addictive burden of holding a grudge. While you roll your eyes, let me explain what I mean. Surviving life is one thing, but living life is quite another. Spoiler alert: no one survives this place.
No one gets out of here alive. Death will come to us all someday. However, as much as death is inevitable, so is the life that precedes it. So to some degree, to whatever extent is possible, you still have to carry on with your life despite the horror show.
There will still be jokes to laugh at and problems to solve, beauty to witness and create, things to fight for and believe in, joys and victories to be won, new discoveries to be made and new dreams to be had. You have to because these are as inevitable as the things we fear and dread.
They never completely go away, but life goes on in all its ugliness and splendor. Fear can be reasonable, but it can never be a sole guiding principle. Best of luck. This is excellent work, Patrick.
Many thanks! I hope it will attract clientele for you, to whom you can offer real help. Leo rising and working on 6th house issues — diet and exercise, finding work, giving up cigs. Starting now.

Including astrology. I love coming across a professional who will be the first to admit that neither him nor his discipline have all the answers. I experienced this when I came down with a mysterious illness during a Neptune, Pluto, Uranus transit. And the chief pain specialist I went to said to me. Western medicine knows relatively very little actually. And the best advice I can give you is to see whether Eastern traditional medicine can give you the relief you need. I wished more astrologers were like that doctor.
Astrology is as much an art as it is a science. And like all bodies of knowledge subjective.
And affected by the environment and the culture in which it is practiced. So by all means check out your zodiac. And to also include other modalities like human design, the tarot and plant based medicine if you really want to get the big picture. Otherwise with astrology you will only be getting at best less than half the answer.
I think this is what Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn is trying to get through to us. Know your limitations. Have the courage to look into the shadows of your own belief systems. Including the stories you tell yourself about who you really are. And what it is you are doing exactly. Astrology like everything has its blind spots and it would be nice to hear more astrologers investigate and talk about what those were. Which can only be done by stepping outside astrology.
Seeing it from a distance. And putting it into a broader political, cultural and anthropological context. Yes, I agree with this quest for analysis of our belief structures and how they inform and create our societies. For instance, I wonder what our world would now look like if we had collectively chosen in the Anglo-American postwar era to politically employ the dark duality of Pisces as a vehicle of engaged empathy in the suffering of others, rather than indulge in using the knowledge of the vulnerabilities of others in a dirty destructive material progressivist war set within a winner v loser paradigm: the latter abuse of human power simply transforming the entire world into a virtual degrading prison for all of us.
Excellent comment! All these modalities afford an exercise in exploring the manner in which we frame our perceptions — how we nuance the context of our lives. I really enjoyed this particular article — another colour on the palette with which I may bring vibrancy or contrast to the composition of my consciousness. He tries to explain cosmic verities through the lens of astrology, which is tough to do.
And, he manages to give each person reading a little bit of homework to do, and make a positive effort on their own behalf. Nice going. Great article! I liked how you came up with examples you worked on your own. Most astrologers online just search a celebrity database and put a meaningless list o names. The doomish and the sugarcoating analysis are not astrology. I woke up today feeling that I am completely lost in life, and that everything I am doing is pointless. Your article helped me to recall the connections to other years of my life.
