Putting The Plutonium In Your Love Tank, Part Two - Cancer And Capricorn



by Matthew Currie September 11, 2009 01:37 PM EST
(This series is written from the perspective of the house placements in your birth chart, specifically with regard to the transit of Pluto through Capricorn. However, much of this applies to your Moon and Sun Sign placements too.)
One of the greatest scientific miracles of the 20th Century was open heart surgery. It's still amazing if you stop to think about it. The surgeon takes a saw and cuts out your sternum, and gently lifts it out. In most cases, you don't even know this is happening, since you've been knocked out. 
(Sometimes, in rare cases, although you appear to the rest of the world to be unconscious, you're just paralyzed... and you get to feel every last turn of that metal blade.)
Mostly, though, you aren't aware of the process. And there's your heart, exposed and pulsing away.
Then the surgeon stops your heart from beating and a machine... a cold, calculating device... takes over the process of keeping you alive. This could cause a stroke, or internal bleeding, or kidney damage, and that might kill you.
(But probably not.)
Then the surgeon reaches into your chest cavity, and he takes your heart into his hands, and he repairs the damage to the thing that keeps you alive. Maybe it was genetic: damage you inherited from your parents and never asked for. Or maybe it was damage from years of poor choices and bad habits on your part. It could be that you simply didn't know any better. Or perhaps you knew all along what you were doing to yourself and you simply didn't care until the harm done was simply too great to ignore any more. Then again, the damage could have been caused purely by accident.
Then the surgeon puts the front of your rib cage back in, and sews you up. Then you wake up in a sterile, unfamiliar environment. They give you a block to hold against your chest. You cross your arms like an Egyptian mummy and press the block to the incision whenever you have the urge to cough... which will be often at first...
(Because otherwise your freshly-sealed chest cavity will explode. And you'll die.)
Of course, if everything goes well, you can look forward to months of pain and worry and examinations and checkups. And then one day you'll be on the treadmill and you'll realize that you've been healed -- that your heart has never felt so alive, and neither have you.
Then again, knowing all of the above, you could just ignore those chest pains and get on with your life. Which won't last much longer, by the way.
Or you could let someone who cares, and who has the skill, put you through a personal hell for a while. If you give that person permission to do so.
That's the next fifteen years of your love life, Cancer and Capricorn.
