On 4th July 2014, the Sun traversing the tropical Cancer and the Pluto traversing the tropical Capricorn reach exact opposition (at 12° 17’ CAN and CAP). Moreover, at present, this Sun position coincide with the aphelion point of the Earth, thus – as some astrologers put into words – Sun conjunct ’Black Sun’ too…
The last occasion when the Sun and the Pluto stood in opposition at 13° CAN and 13° CAP was on 4th July 1768.
Some analogies (Sun Opp. Plu) : willfulness or fanatism but often hiding the own feelings and the personal motifs; worship of the powerful and charismatic persons (but, sometimes, simultaneously fearing them); investigating the occult things, the death and the hidden dimensions of the life. In case of an unpleasing life event, the personal reaction can be gratuitously intense like an explosion.
Nativities with opposing Sun in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn:
