In the horoscope for the United Kingdom, Pluto, as it moves through Sagittarius, will reflect extremely important shifts in attitudes toward education, communication, and the role of the media. Some of these changes may threaten the more rigid dimensions of the "class" system which is historically such an important aspect of the nation's social history. The increasing availability of knowledge of all kinds through new technology may ultimately mean a more global consciousness and a greater sense of belonging to a larger human community.

Accompanying these changes, hotly debated moral issues around the role of the media and the nature of press and television coverage may mean profound changes in how the British as a nation view the deeper meaning of individual privacy, individual responsibility, and the media in the role of educator. Standards may change and become more universal. The gently transformative quality of Neptune in Aquarius may also play its part in a continuing shift in the nation's attitude toward its royalty and its aristocracy. In addition, the dynamic energy of Uranus in Aquarius, moving through the sphere of the nation's horoscope concerned with creativity and the arts, may reflect a new creative Renaissance, with a corresponding breaking down of those structures which in the past might have limited the capacity of both individuals and groups to find a receptive audience for innovative creative work.

Whether or not you favour these changes personally, it would seem that a time has arrived when an opening of heart and mind bring not only anxiety to those identified with a more inward-looking world-view, but exciting new challenges to all those willing to embrace a broader universe.
