Pluto Transits

I came across an article by Bob Marks about Pluto's transits through the houses and signs. With Pluto in retrograde, it's a great time to look deeply into the areas of our lives he's working on and consider how we want them to be transformed. Pluto reminds of us of how necessary change is and how liberating it is to participate in change instead of just letting it happen to us.

Necessary? Yes. Liberating? Yes - but you forgot agonisingly painful, dark, despairing, beyond words, stuck in blackness, defeated, angry, bitter, and many other feelings - before you get to any state of liberation and transformation. You make it sound so much easier than it really is.

Thanks for your comment!

During the past 15 years or so, Pluto has transitted my Sun, Moon, Ascendant, along with the majority of the planets in my chart. So I definitely hear where you're coming from. And you're right, it's not easy. I've written about being in the Pluto cave in other posts on my blog. After dealing with Pluto's darkness for about half my life, and now being at the end of it, I think my journey definitely colours my writings on Pluto. And, as a result, I try to write about Pluto in a way that doesn't diminish the difficulty of a Pluto transit, yet hopefully helps others to have an easier time making sense of it. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
