I dreamt about death last night. And I pulled the death tarot card this morning. That’s no surprise given the connections to Pluto, Lord of the Underworld, today. The Sun, Venus, Mars and Uranus are all conjunct, and are all squaring Pluto.
Pluto calls us to a deep letting go. Do you feel sad? That means something you’ve loved and become attached to is leaving your field. Do you feel fear or shame? That’s something you are giving birth to wanting to be released into an unknown world.
Everything you have been till this moment is expanding into something more. Something larger, more alive and more connected. Many of those connection points have been places of wounding and pain in the past. Now they are ready to reach out and try again.
The Sun, Venus and Mars are in Gate 21. This is a gate that tells us how our life has been controlled and manipulated, where we have had our daily lives disrupted and interfered with. It calls us to trust enough to release ourselves into the universal field without knowing what that might bring to our door. It invites us to release our white knuckle grip on our own individual truth and enter in to a broader collective flow. It calls us to look beyond appearances and bite through to a truth that truly feeds us. It teaches us the new skill of going with the flow, while maintaining our own space and holding authority for our own lives. Uranus is still back in Gate 17 showing us the way to simultaneously learn and teach in each moment. I give wisdom, I receive wisdom.
Pluto in Gate 38 is teaching us the deep lessons of living the challenges of life, rather than fighting death. This is no longer a struggle for survival. It is now about the creation of more life. But Pluto always has a price, and that price is to release the old wornout forms. Sigh and stretch and let them go, even if you don’t know what they are.
There is something leaving your life today. And there is something profound arising. Make a space for it to enter. Be prepared for it to flourish.
(*) The Sun, Venus and Mars are all in Gate 21. Uranus is in Gate 17, but still close enough to the Sun to create an astrological conjunction.
