Lately I’ve been feeling a little blocked. As if things have stagnated, as if all of my potential has been so much inwards that I no longer know how to manifest it outwards. I’ve been feeling as if I no longer have my hands on the wheel.
Anyone else like that?
Over the last few days it’s felt almost like a physical pain- and that’s not just because I “ran” a nearly 10km race over the Sydney Harbour Bridge last weekend and am still suffering…
Pluto spends many months each year in retrograde motion. When a planet is retrograde, it becomes almost an amplification of itself, yet turned inward. Given that Pluto is about power, ambition, transformation, elimination and truth- that’s an awful lot potential frustration bubbling away deep below the surface.
Pluto truth isn’t your average honesty kind of truth. It’s real Jack Nicholson ‘do you want the truth? You can’t handle the truth…’ truth. It’s hard, it’s cold, it’s real, it can hurt.
I hit this point yesterday. Things I didn’t want to hear, yet needed to- absolute truth. There was the dredging up of some festering long decaying stuff that I had buried. There were tears. It was frustration speaking, coloured with a little obsession, more than a little mis-directed self loathing, and a feeling of loss of power.
Pluto is now direct. Just. The stationing point is always a powerful one- especially if it triggers something else in your chart. If your transformational projects have been feeling stuck, they will very soon start to move. Between the energy of Mars moving through Scorpio and Pluto moving forward, combined with some Virgo criticality and discrimination, now is the time to eliminate any of the crud that is holding you back from being who you need to be. Now is the time to do some serious emotional de-cluttering.
What’s left will be the truth. Can you handle the truth?
