Pluto’s transit through the 12th was a trip. The 12th house is an abyss. Much of my time was spent swimming in weeds with various things that go bump in the night.
It’s dark down there but from this position, I was able to look up everyone’s skirt so to speak. Turns out this is not that much fun. So I just communed with the watery shadow for fifteen years . Now I’m here; deposited back in life to be visible to all.
Pluto is now, solidly in my first house. I’m not comfortable. I’ve called myself, “swamp thing” from time to time…
I’m no longer in a swamp, but I’m not exactly cleaned up, either. I ran into a lot of slimy things with Pluto in my 12th. I can’t become un-swamp-thing all the quickly.
I imagine all the seaweed-like stuff that clings to me, is drying up and will fall off at some point. I have no idea how long this might take.
Because I’m me, I want to broadcast all I’ve learned in the last fifteen years. All the things that have been hidden. It’s not easy because I’m pretty sure I’m repulsive.
It doesn’t matter if I am not repulsive. I feel this way. Pluto in the first house aspects the fourth (feelings).
I’m dealing with Capricorn here as well. It’s slow as a snail which irritates my racing teenage-boy mind. And then there’s the cautious aspect of Capricorn. We all love being judged, right? /s
These things make it hard to move forward, quickly, though I am moving. Having left the ethereal world on this level, I’m working to orient myself and evaluate the new schema. How can I define myself with all this gunk attached? I feel I should take my time.
Looking forward, I think things with continue to improve every day. I am healing / drying out and such. But as far being free from this; I expect I will have to wait for Pluto to enter Aquarius to really be liberated.
I do notice I repulse a good number of people but it’s only fair because I feel similarly about them. Pluto in Capricorn is a hard “no”. A hard rejection. This was concealed with Pluto in the twelfth. With Pluto in the first, it’s apparent.
I don’t know that this matters much after what I’ve been through. But it’s a power struggle of some sort.
Seeing this gives me a clue as to what this transit is going to be like. However, I don’t want to get too invested in it. I’m still “impaired” from 12th house ordeal, but I also know that Pluto will change signs relatively quickly. I have never been to prison but I think this might be akin to serving a long sentence, then becoming a, “short-timer”. Instinct tells me to stay out of trouble because I really do want to advance.
If you’re interested in Pluto in the 12th or crossing your ascendant, here are the posts on these topics. I don’t think there is anything like them, anywhere. I’m really glad I did this work or they wouldn’t be here, either. Pluto transit 12th / ascendant.
Is Pluto transiting your first house? What’s it like?
