An astrology chart is a picture of your place on Earth and the Sky above you at the moment of your first breath. It is as if you enter and your breath catches the current of life which you will follow until your final breath.
I'm an astrology student. Often my understanding will surface in a reading or healing but I leave the reading of charts to others.
Let me tell you what I learned about Pluto during one healing I did years ago just as Pluto was whacking me with a conjunction to my Mars. The story starts a few years before when I experimented with taking a drop of Pluto Flower Essence from Desert Alchemy. OMG Pluto IS the entry to hell! Every emotional nightmare ran through me for several hours. This is called a healing crisis.
Rarely do I experience a healing crisis with flower essences but I've discovered that if I keep taking the essence, the disharmony I'm treating will work it's way through within hours. A Pluto Crisis is intensity supreme! It was years before I tried Pluto Essence again.
Then one day, I had a client who seemed to have some Pluto issues, but I didn't want to give them the essence and freak them out, so I took a drop myself and proceeded with the healing. Wow! I learned the purpose of Pluto. I was going along, following a basic Brennan protocol and suddenly I broke through a energy veil into PURE BLISS.
Everyone says Pluto, ruler of Scorpio, is about death and rebirth and sexuality and power. These are big words which most of us don't have the slightest understanding of. Many people cringe at the idea of Pluto and try to duck if they see a Pluto transit coming.
Sorry folks, you can't duck Pluto. If you try to crawl under the cover, guess who will be waiting for you? One of my first astrology teachers, Robert Hand, explained that Pluto demands a sacrifice. For example, start wearing black leather, ride a motorcycle and risk death, or loose your virginity.
What does Pluto really want? Bliss. The Ecstatic. Pluto is not really there to torment you, but she is there to strip away all that is blocking the ecstatic experience of your soul. She gave you a chance from Aires to Libra, now mercy time is over.
We are stubborn. We want to stay in our safe little sheds of familiarity. Routine sex. Routine conversation. Routine. Routine. We don't even acknowledge our deepest desires. We love too safely. We play with helmets and worship security. BORING.
Yes, Pluto is without mercy, but her intention is to strip away all that shields you from your soul's deepest bliss and intimacy. When I broke through the veil that day during the healing, I understood and I fell in love with Pluto and her purpose. She didn't want to kill us. She wants to bring us to peaks of visceral bliss. She wants us to know our own soul and meet soul to soul with another.
There is so much we do not understand about this dimension of Pluto and Scorpio. It has been forbidden territory during this epoch of male/female imbalance. The distortions of sexuality and abuse of power are killing us. Killing all joy and creation.
However, we recently entered the 2 1/2 year Saturn in Scorpio phase, so we get a chance to do our homework and heal up the darkest messes and also allow ourselves the vulnerability required by intimacy, self knowledge of our desires and right use of power. It's all about the healing power of deep deep love.
