Ten years ago, Pluto transited my Moon. I wrote about this very personal transit as it unfolded, similar to my series on Pluto transiting my 12th house.
Chronicling these heavy transits create quite a body of work when it’s all said and done. My hope is my work helps others in the future. This is coming up today because, “Alicia”. commented on an old post – Pluto Transit To The Moon: Note From The Epicenter
“I see it’s eight years now since your Pluto Moon transit. I’d be very interested, if you’d care to share, about how you found the after effects. Was it transformational for you, was it ultimately a positive force?”
Thanks for the question. I’d not thought about this at all and I’m glad to have the chance.
There is no way I would call Pluto’s transit to my moon, positive. It was just too horrifyingly painful. My losses during that transit were staggering. They were beyond anyone’s knowledge; and probably beyond anyone’s capacity to understand.
This is not because I am special or brilliant. It’s because this transit plays out in ways that are deeply personal. You’re down so far, you’re lucky it you can hold onto someone on the surface by a thread.
Eight years after the fact, the important things I lost are still lost. I did get my house (Moon) back. Some may recall, things were so bleak for me at that time, I left the front porch light burned out for a couple of years. I just couldn’t bring myself to change the bulb.
I wrote the epicenter post in 2007. I was living in a “stigmatized home” (search it on this blog) at the time. In 2014-15, we fixed the house and sold it. I hope to never see it again.
As for the transit being “transformational”, it most definitely was. But it was like being raped and raped and raped again so whatever I gleaned, I’d not call it “worth it”.
I don’t think I got much from the transit. I’m probably a better counselor. I have more knowledge of the shadow side of the mother. But frankly, I had a lot of knowledge about that already.
This is why I hope people benefit from what I wrote, in future times. I can’t get anything back that I lost, but you, who are having this transit may be helped knowing you are not alone.
