Over the Christmas break there have been the usual war stories with rockets killing families, night clubs burning and violence on the streets. There was a shark attack at a suburban beach here which left no trace of the poor guy. The holiday road deaths are rising astronomically along with the debilitating grief which resonates though our communities. One could easily attribute all this to Mars and Pluto in Capricorn?
Tea and toast in the morning is stepping up a notch it seems. It pays to have more of a backbone these days.
Good Posture Helps Too
While Pluto establishes itself in Capricorn a few spine chilling stories have come to light in my life. I am entering into a phase where Pluto square Venus describes complex relationships coming to the fore. A good post on the psychology of jealousy and sibling rivalry is found at Grafitti’s blog.
Pluto square natal Venus is about the intensity of complex relationships.
Pluto in Capricorn and square Venus represents the transformation in my relationships. The “square” aspect is experiential learning. Perhaps I will be challenged to create new ways of relating in my social settings? Most likely the relational style of counselling clients will be tested and transformed in some way (This is all good so far). Chiron is passing over my Moon for the last time while all this is going on. Remembering the pain is healing and transformational even if the situation is unfair.
Such is life – I say to myself “have the feelings and experience the transformations”. Its ok to support oneself I say to myself .
It pays to check where Pluto is heading in your own natal chart to achieve a sense of the spine tingling possibilities in life .
Spine Tingling Stories
A dear friend of mine is beginning her transit of Pluto Conjunct natal Saturn next week. Other friends have Pluto conjunct Sun, Pluto – Mars or Pluto and their 4th Cusp in their current life cycles. These Pluto aspects of people are all spine tingling stories unfolding around me! Perhaps I am gaining insight to my own Pluto – Venus cycle?
Some time ago I wrote a blog Pluto Astro and the different planetary aspects in regard to Pluto. Checking ones own planets and mid point structures in the early degrees of cardinal signs (Cancer Aries, Capricorn and Libra) is another way to unearth your own – spine tingling tales for 2009.
It Pays to have a Backbone
While Pluto moves through Capricorn it pays to listen how others use their authority in work and social settings. Pluto is of course – psychological projection operating at unconscious levels. Communications involving Pluto tend to be non verbal or psychological messages – designed to work like seeds planted in ones thoughts. While overt and more direct styles of communication help one to know where they stand in relationships; the spine thrilling – complexity of the underlying communication is lost.
Having a spine – means standing ones ground, being patient of others by understanding necessary transformations taking place in peoples lives.
