On the post, Scope etc. I explained how I have spent most my life coming up / thriving in an environment where decay, deprivation and hardship dominate the scene and the experience. This an Pluto archetype or for the non-astrological, you can see this in nature when a flower springs up from a heap of manure.
I think building and maintaining yourself amid loss and death and decay is going to be a major theme with Pluto in Capricorn and people will gravitate towards people like me who know how to do it. Come up smelling like a rose, that is because if you can’t do it the only other option is to be buried in some really nasty stuff.
I have a client with a grand cross in her chart that sits on the angles of her chart so is very boldly drawn. I’ve worked with her for a number of months and recognize her as a(nother) prototype. She has spent her lifetime living under a hard core grand cross and now we as a collective get to see what that experience is like.
As I write this, the Moon is leaving Cancer and the cross is breaking up temporarily but I am beginning to get a grip on it or at least be able to offer some observations that may help. What I am seeing is a number of points or angles (check the picture) that are showing themselves in my life (and in yours) and creating a gift and a curse.
A curse because there are so many things or people to be concerned about and a gift for the same reason and I will explain.
On my honeymoon, I met pretty much all the people who are prominent in my husband’s life. He has known most of these people between 30 to 50 years so that is a lot to absorb. Everyone has a story and all the stories are important so I ask you, which is most important?
It is impossible to tell. The stories, like the points in that cross are connected and a person is caught in that. You can’t really focus or obsess on one point (or person) without being pulled to another point (or person) and if you can get a handle on this you can see where the “gift” comes in.
To relate this “at large”, just look at the news or the state of the world. Which point should you obsession, huh? Unemployment? Heath care? The decay of society in general? By now, I am sure most of you can relate to what I am saying so here’s the trick:
If you can see and acknowledge the people / points you are dealing with, you can contain this thing and start working within the limits. It’s gives a sense of control people want and need right now and it offers a chance at mastery or at least a chance to strive in that direction.
Name some of the points or issues in your life right now…
