Sun conjunct Pluto, Blackstar Epiphany.

Sun Pluto/ Darkstar astrology Tara Greene

The SUN and PLUTO conjoin in their once a year Meeting of two parts of soul Jan 6 PDT/7th EDT and GMT @ 17+ degrees CAPRICORN. This annual event synchronizes with EPIPHANY a word that I have always loved.  It means:’ A sudden realization!  It’s major Alchemy. It could be seen as the spiritual Black SUN. It also can be seen as a BLACKSTAR. The title of David Bowie’s last album. It is almost one year since his passing That is exactly the energy that the two planets symbolize.

Sun conjunct Pluto Astrology Tara Greene


painting by Napoleon Brousseau

The Sun, SOL, the Sun King, is the Light half of Life and the soul, Pluto is death, the dark, hidden, mysterious part of life and the soul. They are equal counterparts of Life itself. Life in Death and Death in life. Yin/Yang. Can’t have one without the other.

In the Tarot the SUN is Tarot Major #19 and Death is #13 






Pluto is Lord of Death and Rebirth, garbage, refuse, radiation, the underworld, soul parts, the shadow. The Sun is the bringer of Life and Light.
Together their annual conjunction brings wholeness and balance by bringing the Light to what is darkest.Time to Shine the Light on your shadows, everyone’s got one.

There are no “others” outside of ourselves. All that we see as “other” are aspects of ourselves. The keyword is aspects. The SUN lights up everything. The Darkness, death is the absence of light, its necessary opposite balance. Without the dark, the Void, there would be no light.

These two “planets” conjunction is part of next week’s BIG CARDINAL T-SQUARE BASH as the SUN squares URANUS @ 20+ ARIES on 1/10 and SUN squares JUPITER 1/11 @ 22+ degrees LIBRA. 

This is a day of wholeness, of seeing all aspects of life as being inseparable from other parts.
With a world so divided, this day may bring up further terrors and fears into the light of day depending on which aspect ones consciousness reverberates to.

It can be a day of danger as Pluto symbolizes nuclear energy and the SUN is a nuclear furnace. It could be a day of volcanic explosions, terrorist bombings, or a massive solar CME. Expect the submerged soul hungers to be bursting through loud and clear.

17+ degrees Capricorn is the degree in your natal chart where you look for your own personal EPIPHANY.- See keywords for each sign below

SYMBOLS for The 18th degree of Capricorn according to John Sandbach

“A forgotten painting stored in a vault. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive

 Spiritual Cleansing, Endings, and Rebirth

This degree is inherently patient and knows that it may take a long time before its gifts are appreciated. It’s also aware that when people are exposed to something again and again over a long period they can begin to take that thing for granted, and so sometimes its best to hold back what one has to offer until the time is right to bring it forth.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A black leopard with green eyes.”

The painting is stored in the dark, the leopard is a creature of the dark. Green is the color of emeralds, the gem of Mercury, the planet of communication.  AND THE HEART CHAKRA. The artist’s painting was painted to communicate something, but not it is not doing that – it dwells in the dark. Until it can communicate once again – open its eyes to the light, and reaffirm its power, which is like that of the leopard’s.

Sometimes when something is hidden it is a good thing – later, when it is re-revealed we may see it with fresh eyes. This degree knows the power of waiting for the right time to act, the right time to bring forth its ideas. It uses the power of darkness and silence to enhance what is eventually and finally communicated.

Pleiadian Symbol: A glorious dragon of many colors embroidered onto a flag.

Azoth Symbol: A speaker intuiting what her audience needs to hear.

Seed degree: 4 Scorpio 4. An albino woman unaffected by the rays of the sun. (Omega Symbol). When we cease to allow the obvious to overpower our consciousness we become aware of hidden treasures everywhere.

A loud roar as a tornado approaches. (Chandra Symbol). The intensity and power of overpowering thought forms give rise to potent desires and a deep, burning desire to communicate and connect.

Fulfillment degree: Pisces 24.An empty perfume bottle, the scent completely gone. (Omega Symbol). What has been lost is come to be seen as something that may be translated into the present via the imagination, or completely let go of to make way for whatever new is to come.

A spring festival. The participants are in a state of ecstatic frenzy. (Chandra Symbol)

Here is a beautiful poem by Rumi to guide you through this.
“Search the Darkness,” from The Pocket Rumi, ed. by Kabir Helminski

Search the Darkness

Sit with your friends; don’t go back to sleep
Don’t sink like a fish to the bottom of the sea.

Life’s water flows from darkness.
Search the darkness don’t run from it.

Night travelers are full of light,
and you are, too; don’t leave this companionship.

Be a wakeful candle in a golden dish,
don’t slip into the dirt like quicksilver.

The moon appears for the night travelers,
be watchful when the moon is full.
