Pluto is now back in direct motion, after having changed directions from retrograde last Friday. But it will be over a week before it gets back to its normal direct speed.
Pluto is one of three truly transformational planets, Uranus and Neptune being the other two. As they move through the heavens they bring the events and consciousness stirrings that assist our evolution into an Aquarian Age.
Pluto mythologically is the God of Hades, of the underworld. It is intense and powerful, and brings to the surface of consciousness our shadows and suppressed memories. As we face these demons, we are more able to release old hurts and resentments, so we can heal our wounds and traumas. As we face our darkness, we sometimes get pulled down into the pit of despair. From that black hole in our psyche, we release the suffering and become renewed to feel alive again, rising like the Phoenix toward a transformed consciousness and life.
While Pluto was retrograde, from April 9 2011 to September 16 2011, our transformational journey had been largely inward, with intense and often painful inner emotions. Now that it has gone back direct again, the transformation becomes more outward, leading us to act with change more out in the world. We will be more motivated now to passionately embrace our lives and the changes that will improve our lives.
In the greater world, outer events will get more powerful now, events that will be more destructive of the old world and its now dysfunctional paradigm for living. These events will bring some to believe more strongly than ever that we are separate from one another, cannot trust one another, and must fight more than ever to take of only our selves, our own families and nation.
Others will know it is time to change our ways, to come together as one big family all over the world, to create a better world. These people know that true evolution is about attaining a unity consciousness, not a competive dog eat dog survivalist mentality.
Evolution is adapting to one’s environment in a way that brings greater survival of life. Our current paradigm for living on Earth separates us from one another with lack of trust that has created nuclear bombs and other weapons of mass destruction. Those weapons are symbolic of the destructive path our old paradigm has brought us to. The disparity between rich and poor in our world is another symbol of the old paradigm of separation between peoples.
Diversity and individuality brought together in unified community is the way to survival now. It is Aquarius, and it is where those who want our human family to evolve are going to in flocks now.
You can only get there if you leave the fear and guilt and judgmental based paradigm of the old age. That paradigm teaches us that all is random and chance and disconnected and separate. It may talk of love, but it does not show us love. It may talk of truth and fairness but does not show us truth or fairness. The Universe I know is meaningful and has love and truth as its Pillars of Strength that we can all rely on.
But you cannot know these Pillars of Truth and Love if you have traded your heart and soul for the fears, rules and commandments of the old world.
The world events that are coming our way will challenge us greatly. The economy will face more grave struggles. War is coming to Israel and the Middle East, which will involve the USA. Natural Disasters will continue to shake our Earthly lives.
And the portal to an Aquarian Age and its unifying consciousness will at the same time get larger and larger, shining more light and love than ever for those who are so attuned.
This week is the annual turning of the seasonal wheel to Autumn. The Autumn Equinox is this Friday September 23 at 5:05 AM EDT.
The autumn equinox is analogous to a setting sun. Daytime light and heat are setting for the year, bringing in the beginning of cooler and darker days. Light and night are equal at the Autumn Equinox, with dark and yin energies on the rise. It is Libra time of year, when balance is here for us to enjoy.
The scales seek to be even, to find fairness, co-operation and justice. There is beauty all around with the changing of leaves to the many colors of early autumn.
This Libra time of year is when the self and its demands are beginning to be relinguished in favor of relationship, of social awareness, of civility. We take the focus off of “self” and bring it more to “Us.”
The Mayan Calendar according to Calleman is, on September 23, beginning the 6th night before the 7th and last day leading up to October 28, which is considered the end of the Old World and the beginning of a New World. According to this theory there will be enormous world transformation and opening to Unity Consciousness during this time.
