Current Astro Events – Oct 14, ’11
We continue in the energy of Pluto, planet of transformation and upheaval – or the death of your false Self and the birth of your Authentic Self. Yes, there are parts of you in operation that have been indoctrinated by family, community, culture as well as your country – behaviors, beliefs, opinions and attitudes that you have adopted, rather than choosing consciously.
Is it shocking to consider this? You were taught from a young age what to believe and what was acceptable – and then you live your life either following directions or rebelling against them, or some combination of the two.
If you were blessed to have parents who were secure enough to encourage you to think for yourself, you may have learned to examine your feelings and desires in order to make choices that were authentic for you. This is so rare, I don’t know many people who had that experience.
As a conscious adult, you continue to discover layers of beliefs, behaviors and ways of operating that aren’t working for you. When you have a Pluto experience, the planet of transformation either brings up non-working patterns or tears down shaky or outdated structures in your life.
Although it may not feel like it in the moment, this is a gift because it’s like having a neon sign pointing out: “NOT WORKING, NOT WORKING!” You don’t have to be a genius to discern where the problem is!
Pluto is squaring Uranus (the rebel, revolutionary, innovator), so think of the “Occupy Wall Street” people – this is the energy of the Pluto/Uranus square. They’re mad as hell and they’re not going to take it any more! Where is this happening in your life? What have you been putting up with that just feels intolerable now? This is your own personal “protest” area!
Here’s what to do:
- Step 1 – Get clear about what’s not working because you must identify what needs correction.
- Step 2 – Decide on your next step to move forward. It’s hard to have a plan if you don’t know where you’re going, so just feel into what’s the next right thing for you.
- Step 3 – Commit to doing whatever is necessary to move forward in your life. It is time. Baby steps count – and they won’t freak you out or overwhelm you. Find the rhythm that’s right for you.
Just take some action – and please get help. You can’t guide yourself through new territory with your old thinking!
Sending you love and blessings. I’m an example of what’s possible. No matter where you are in life, you can heal and grow and become who you came here to be – it’s never too late!
