Pluto in Sagittarius
Pluto entered Sagittarius in 1995 and will stay until 2009. This is symbolic of terrorism based upon religious or philosophical zealotry. The Tokyo subway sarin gas attack, the OK city bombing and the OJ trial verdict started off this period. There is focus on violence in schools and legal regulations regarding firearms. The public school system is widely thought to need an overhaul because of its broken down state and lowered learning standards. This should be no surprise because Pluto represents alogos (aversion to understanding), along with generation and corruption. Because Pluto often represents issues of life and death, it makes good drama. Because it is in Sagittarius the drama is in the legal system as evidenced by the flourishing of court based shows like Court TV. Those with close aspects from inner planets to Pluto in this sign will have a powerful effect in the shaping of the legal system. They will tend to use truth or its omission as a weapon. Propaganda often takes the place of cool headed reason and some will use emotionalism to subvert what is right. Since Pluto's sect nature is indeterminate I will not speculate upon differences based upon sect.
