So, I’m still living on the Pluto line, but my days are numbered now: Twenty-nine, twenty-four hour periods for CA , give or take daylight savings time and the fact that due north is no longer due north, more on that later. I’m continuing to have multiple outer planet transits to my most significant personal planets and Saturn keeps crawling around in my fourth house stirring up all kinds of ghosts and hopefully, angels. It’s about as hard as it gets,astrologically, yet I’m grateful that my trials and tribulations are mine. It’s the path my soul needs to walk in a human body. It’s not personal. It’s Pluto. It’s time for transformation, again. Scholars, seekers, and scientists have described the pain and suffering of the process across the ages. Yogi’s, healers, and therapists try to minimize the negative effects of the pain and suffering. One way out is death….. and re-birth if you proscribe to Pluto as ruler of Scorpio.
Transformation is often accompanied by some kind of aha, awakening, or sudden unexpected life change. Our old ways don’t work anymore. To continue in the same mode is ridiculous. However, for some, leaving behind and letting go is difficult, arduous, and overwhelming. It helps to have support or to join with others that are of like mind or the common community.
Plato’s allegory of The Cave is a nice metaphor for Pluto. When the cave dwellers realized that their reality included more than shadows on a wall, that there were people outside the cave living in a different world entirely, a ‘transformational’ process began. The old reality is no longer suitable. The new reality is nothing we have ever encountered before. Most likely, old behaviors will not produce the same results either.
to be continued. Today is the start of the balsamic moon phase. Be at peace.
