The idea of a Pluto transit can be scary. Personally I’ve got my eye on Pluto transiting my moon in the next few years. Let’s just say I’m not looking forward to it, but I’m starting to gain perspective on it. Pluto is transformation, regeneration. Pluto is power; Pluto can be pain. But Pluto also represents pain with a purpose. A metaphor for Pluto action is the bone that must be rebroken so it can heal properly; avoid that pain and you never walk again.
Pluto is the controlled burn of the universe. Some seeds require the intense heat of fire in order to be freed of their husk, enter the soil and germinate. Farmers burn their fields between crops when they start over for a new planting. It eliminates weed seeds that would compete for resources with the wanted plants. Firefighters use backburning and burn lines to protect. Small, regular forest fires are a part of nature and preventing them totally often leads to huge, out of control devastation in the long run.
Pain is a part of life. Avoidance of pain sets one up for bigger pain in the long run. To quote a seventies song, don’t fear The Reaper, man. Actually, if you want a more current Pluto song try. Warning: it has the curses. I’m hep like that.
Have you been through a Pluto transit? What good did you see come out of it?
