In these chaotic times when the daily news can make you either want to rip your hair out, cry copiously, or throw your hands up in the air in total frustration I find that finding an orange bowl and riding it for all its worth is a great antidote to any woes, i.e., find something you really enjoy and…enjoy it!
Pluto has turned direct after 5 months of retrograde movement. Pluto, as one of the outer, transpersonal planets – Neptune and Uranus are the other 2 outer planets – is as slow-moving as it is serious in its impact on a personal level, if it is transiting planets or significant points in your chart, and on the collective level always. The outer planets are called transpersonal in that they are like the weather – you can bring an umbrella on a rainy day or you can get wet. You can put your snow tires on in the winter and have a better chance of safe road navigation or you can swerve all over the place with your summer tires.
So what does this mean? Prepare as you might for any and all expected circumstances you are still on the ride of your life and when an outer planet hits your chart you get to use any and all of the tools you have honed through your experiences thus far, like relaxation practices. Knowing how to calm and relax yourself during these wild times is the most important tool you can have. You can’t change the weather but you can change how you feel. Being joyful, accepting, and present in the NOW of whatever is happening puts you in the most effective emotional place to ride the wave of life. We all know that we enjoy the ride when we perceive things are ‘going well’ but we feel that maybe it’s not so fun when we perceive things are not going so well. But what is your gauge for well and not well? The whole ride is fascinating and you can either work yourself into a fit when you think things are going down the tube or you can really get it that the whole ride is yours to experience and the more relaxed you are the less the bumps and sinkholes will be able to move you from a centered place of wow! this IS the ride of my life and it’s ALL mine to ride as I choose.
Pluto is at 20 degrees Capricorn now and will be moving forward to 22 degrees Capricorn by year’s end. If you have any planets or points (midheaven or ascendant) at 20, 21, or 22 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, Libra, Virgo, or Taurus you will be feeling the volcanic transformational energy of Pluto. Volcanic in its nature, Pluto will dredge up some pretty toxic crap that has been brewing under the surface for who knows how long and when it spews forth its firey, gaseous fumes it will solidify when it hits the emotional realm and voila! new land, new emotional territory is formed. Birthing isn’t easy but it certainly is exciting. And exhausting. if you can sleep more, do!
Enormous energetic downloads are coming down the pike and if you’re as sensitive as I am you are feeling things moving and shaking, and much way out of your control. You might be noticing strange things happening with your body. My eyes have been leaking, Actually it feels like my entire face is leaking. Too odd. Ascension symptoms. And still things are leaking here and there in my house. The good news is that I got to call the plumber again but plumbing is pricey and I’d really rather have a good massage but there you go. You address what needs to be addressed, grateful it’s not worse than it is, hopeful that each day brings new opportunities to add more light to the world.
Speaking of adding light to the world, I have been learning to edit videos on Youtube (never say never to what you are capable of learning). I am excited to be showing how to play with flowers and to showcase videos of my ongoing love affair with flowers, images you can watch that bring you right into the magic world of flowers.
I now have my own url (thank you for subscribing to the channel!) and am busy uploading the tender splendor of flowers. Check them out at The Flower Channel.
