There have been many stades in the life of Ingrid Betancourt. First she was a politican who went to a dangerous part of Colombia, knowing of the risk. She got captured and spent years in the jungle as a prisoner of FARC. The world outside admired her and the government tried to get her free. Soldiers died to liberate her. Then she was free again and now - two years later - she demands millions for the damaging time in the Colombian jungle and she wants the money from the government. I don’t think that she is making friends right now. Transit Uranus is square natal Mars. You might read that as a conflict between what drives and community (or going too fast in sudden anger). And...Transit Pluto is exactly conjunct her natal Sun. That is a very challenging and life changing transit, that often reflects the implementation of a come back (being forced to start all over again) and renewed self esteem. Perhaps the politician Betancourt is back? Here is the chart with transits and progressions for your study. And more about the Pluto transit...
HOW ABOUT YOU?
Of course Betancourt had a traumatic experience and she lost valuable time in the hands of terrorists. Her state of mind must be different from that of a common housewife and mother or a secretary on Bond Street. Difficult transits will hit harder when you have already been hurt that way. When transit Pluto hits your Sun, you are starting to recover (and ‘get back’) but the effort and the price is high. Life will be demanding (out of free will or not). Stress and all kind of causes for this pop up and make life difficult. On the other hand, you will find that you have the strength and fanatism to do what you should (in your eyes). With Pluto’s transit you will revalue yourself. Just like Ingrid Betancourt did. She asks for 6,5 million.
