Pluto at 22° Capricorn: Have You Been Resurrected?
We're a stone throw away from the last Jupiter-Pluto conjunction at 22* on Nov-12th.
A few days later, Venus squares Pluto also at 22*
So don't be surprised if zombies/corpses surface that week.
Love the concept of slow deaths, big blow...boom...transformation. Classic hero's journey.
During full moon ritual tonight, I broke down, allowing myself to really feel the grief of past year. I don't know if its my Capricorn perseverance or natal Scorpionic pluto...I am still standing. Most days, I smile, do my duties well and stay productive. This -despite an endless bleak future and things that held most meaning for me, being stripped away.
I am due for a resurrection. Not rewards...they will feel empty and temporary...but REAL resurrection, back from the underworld of overwhelming loss. Hopefully, I have done the work. Now, all that is left to do is to wait for a trigger point for it to all come rushing up and out.
I haven't posted since the forum re-design so.....
Cap 22 degrees was where my progressed moon was in February when I had my TKR. Since having that surgery, I am transformed from hobbling around to walking 5 miles a day!
Mars has been in my sixth house and I feel great! My husband retired and so we walk.... and we talk...
I guess, all the late degree Cardinals are in mood for a major reprise of their entire life. Its been such a long long long year. I get solace in reading all the stories, and their positive manifestation of growth, dawning of understanding and emotional intelligence.
@LN I know someone whose Sun, Moon AND Mars are impacted at or near this degree. They are in their 50s too, and have aged AND grown overnight in front of my eyes. Its worth it. The losses may be monumental, but dear God, its worth it.
I feel the pressure of transformation (still I'm far from being ressurected), but I am so tired... Pluto-Saturn paring in transit over the 4th house it's been so far one of the most challeging transits for me. I thougt I knew challenge before this, it seems I didn't. I have no cardinal planets except for cardinal energy on angles and Pluto late degree Libra in the first house conjunct Saturn. The pressure is high and most of the time I don't feel I can make it through... but not feeling hopeless and negative about it, but somehow a kind of resignation like I will never arrive... It's been a long journey of digging into the past, healing... but the more the dig the larger it gets, like it's not really ending. From here the feeling I will never arrive... Still the pressure of this energy doesn't let me go to sleep, I have to keep digging...
I am deeply moved by the sharing of personal experiences here - words fail me, much love & light to everyone ❤️
Pluto at this degree and the process of resurrection reminds me of the Butterfly and Cocoon story ....
"A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could and it could go no farther.
Then the man decided to help the butterfly, so he took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon. The butterfly then emerged easily. But it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings.
The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that, at moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support the body which would contract in time.
Neither happened! In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and shriveled wings. It never was able to fly.
What this man in his kindness and haste did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening were nature's way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon.
Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our life. If nature allowed us to go through your life without any obstacles, it would cripple us. We would not be as strong as what we could have been. And we could never fly…."
