There are some posts you almost don’t write because you’re not ready yet to write such things. But you’re in the process of getting there, so you take your The Book of Pluto by Steven Forrest and Predictive Astrology Bernadette Brady and create a DIY post you hope will be helpful to those reading it.
This post is the promised sequel to my February post: Pluto in Libra Generation: Living Happily Ever After. In this post, I’m going to focus specifically on the Pluto square this generation is experiencing since Pluto’s ingress into Capricorn in January, 2008. The mills of God and Pluto grind slow but grind exceedingly small. Pluto stays in Capricorn till March, 2023. And during this period of 15 years, it will have squared itself in the charts of everyone who was born with Pluto in Libra.
Steven Forrest says that a well-lived Pluto in your chart gives you the great gift of feeling your life to be meaningful. But if you do not work with your Pluto, do not honor its call, do not pay its price; the bleakness of life will get you. You will be enfolded by that worst feeling of all: the feeling of your life being without meaning. It’s a great insight and I have found it to be true. He’s a great teacher and you really must get that book I mentioned earlier if you are working with Pluto or trying to understand it in charts.
Steve talks about Pluto’s square to itself by transit as a time when your beliefs are questioned. When things you have always taken for granted come up for examination vis-à-vis their meaningfulness in life. This examination may cause you to change your beliefs. And that is a deep thing because our beliefs are what determine our choices and actions and it is these choices and actions that form our life. So basically, when you’re faced with this square, you’re in the process of transforming your life.
The transformation is going to come whether you like it or not. And since it is a square, you probably aren’t going to like it very much. I see the Pluto square activating when you find yourself face down in the carpet weeping, “Why me?” When you hold on to what is not been working for you, not wanting thing to change and appealing to God saying, “Please help me. Please fix this.” (more…)
