There have always been sex scandals. And there will always be sex scandals.
But ever since Pluto- the planet of sex, transformation and all that is burried and sometimes seedy- slid into Capricorn in 2008, the wave of high profile men and women caught up in sex scandals seems to have exploded.
This is because Capricorn is the sign that rules career, reputation, big business and people who are high profile and powerful. And so the flavor of these scandals have a somehow more serious and consequential tone to them, as opposed to the Pluto in Sag era scandals of 1995-2008, which had a more reckless and playful quality about them in keeping with the Sagittarius theme.
So while Pluto’s transit through Capricorn, which lasts until 2023, has many many powerful and transformative implications- one of the most entertaining byproducts of this era will be watching all that is sexually explicit and subterranean (Pluto) in the lives of important, reputable people (Capricorn) bubbling to the surface.
