A New Theme For 2012 – Mining and Drilling

In 2012 Pluto in Capricorn (rules Saturn and mining) will kick in gear a new decade of drilling for oil and mining similar to the gold rush years.  The states will move aggressively to start new mining and oil drilling on land as a means to increase revenues and employment.  The new Discovery television series “Gold Rush: Alaska” featuring a group of men from Oregon grunting it out in their fledgling mining operation, pretty much sums it up!  Really,  a bunch of men out playing in the yard with over sized Tonka trucks.

Pluto and Jupiter will make one last trine at 9 degrees Capricorn (mining) and Taurus (dirt and where the country’s wealth could come from) in March of 2012.  We will start to see more in the media regarding new oil drilling and mining in various states as well as the promotion of job opportunities in the mining field.  Pluto is all about what’s beneath the surface and transforming our way of life.  Pluto also rules the government and it will be the states that seize the opportunity to literally dig their way out of debt!

Watch for a correction in Joy Global (JOYG)  and Caterpillar (CAT) in January 2012.  This sector will take off in March 2012.
