Today Pluto stations direct. Pluto has been retrograde or seemed to move backwards since April 20th.
Pluto represents transformation and empowerment. According to Steven Forrest, Pluto is your wise wound. It symbolizes the psychological, the buried – how deeply you must go to retrieve your soul.
What depth work have you done in the past five months?
In Christianity the Passion of Jesus correlates with the symbolism of Pluto: Suffering, death and resurrection. “On the third day he rose again….” I only noticed the other day that during the Eucharistic prayer the priest says, “At the time he was betrayed and entered willingly into his Passion, he took bread and, giving thanks, broke it, and gave it to his disciples….” Entered willingly, giving thanks. HOW?
How do we stand outside some profound change we’re going through enough to enter it willingly and give thanks? Why would we want to? How could that help us?
What correlates with Pluto from your own faith tradition or learning? Which have been the major Plutonian times and lessons in your life? How have the last five months revisited those themes for you?
Today as the moon shares the same sign as Pluto and eventually joins it, take some time to be kind to yourself. This can be heavy and powerful. Handle yourself and others with care.
