The Clearing

Lately I have been thinking about Pluto in my natal chart, Pluto is a part of my t-square it opposes my moon and squares my sun. It is very much a part of me. Pluto is very much a part of anyone that has the planet of depth, Lord of the Underworld on an angle (1st, 4th, 7th or 10th house) or touching your personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus or Mars). Plutonian types are privy to these grand upheavals in life. There is a complete destruction of who you were before, the life of plutonian types are clearly marked as before and after, a beginning and an end. I can’t claim to have been aware of this energy, really I haven’t been. Well up until now. I know as a person I’m constantly open to change. I have Uranus rising and placed in my 8th house. While Uranus can be a quick and abrupt it is very different then Pluto who delivers grand upheavals, destruction; everything in its wake annihilated, obliterated and then emerging a new. I have conducted entire friendships, relationships and once they are gone; that is it. I’m done. The severing of ties always has a finality too it. The Planet Pluto rules destruction, disasters, nuclear weapons, it is all or nothing. Recently I found myself saying I feel that change is imminent in my life, I can feel it is close. Change is, cathartic, painful, and complete. Pluto clears everything in your path. When I’m on the verge of altering my existence, I can’t merely tweak it; no it becomes a new job, a new wardrobe, a new haircut and a new state of mind. Everything has to be changed, secretly I hate that. Usually changes that occur in my life are done so forcefully, the fight with the friend with words that cannot be undone, the quitting the job where you tell your boss to go fuck themselves, the decision to go back to school at 25, but not just going back but needing to graduate with a 4.0 and attend all the summer and winter programs. Pluto obviously rules obsessions. I never get the light version of life and I certainly never get that graceful exit. With my Plutonic love, I recall just wanting to spend one more night with him and another one more night and another. He said, “You always say one more night”. I wanted the end to be done somehow perfectly, kindly; instead it was a stab in my soul, a hurricane in the sky and a huge sign that read:

So I moved literally and I began this astrological journey, I blog and I write privately and publicly for and And the way in which I see the world is very different now; I see things through a different lens. I always say my life is marked by 2 periods:
Before Plutonic Love
And After;

But in reality I should say
Before Pluto
And After
Because that planet is the real game changer and I have a feeling in a few months I will be someone new, doing something else and when I glance back the sign will read: Point of No Return that’s how it is with Pluto, you can never go back






  1. Has Pluto opposed your Sun yet? Is Uranus on your Moon? For me right now, Pluto is conjunct my Sun and Uranus is really close to joining my Jupiter. While natally I have a Sun trine Pluto, it is still intense!

  2. My mom is a Capricorn sun and pluto conjunct her sun & she is fine! I’m like what the heck. She isn’t upset or going through anything major thank god! How are you holding up? Pluto in in about 4 degrees away from opposing my sun and squaring my moon while uranus is 7 degrees away from my moon. I think I’m having a hard time with uranus leaving my 1st house it’s almost in my 2nd. Love your site!

  3. Well, I am the 2nd Cappie I know (both of us born in early to mid 1960’s) with Pluto on our Sun – both of us lost our soul mate spouses (me October, she in January). Mine was utterly out of the blue. I am also wrapping up about a decade of horrendous health issues due to my move to a cold area (which lies on my Moon/Pluto lines too!) not to mention an emergency abdominal surgery upon my arrival (which was right after my marriage). This is where my mother lives, was raised, where I was born, and I only came back to raise my kids until they were grown, which happened and that turned out better than fine. I just had a higher “price” than I thought I did. Uranus is approaching my Jupiter though, which ought to prove interesting! Hope to relocate this Spring in a WARM place with more support 🙂 THANKS for your compliments, I am pretty sure you are in my “Astrology” blog links on the right hand side hehe! (Interestingly, I am also aware of 3 other astrologers with Pluto conjunt Sun right now too, and to my knowledge they are OK – it is the Cancers, with it being opposite who seem to have more trouble and I am sure it is not letting go that gets most of them in trouble).

  4. I hope you and your friend can be a sense of strength to one another. I cant even imagine. Sending you BIG Hugs and def warm weather, I thrive in the sun. This NYC winter is for the birds;) Im trying to not hold on to anything, ya know the tighter you cling. The harder it is xo

  5. Dearest girls, may be i can add an idea of Pluto, that came to me as Pluto by transit, was opposing my Mars-Uranus conjunction. i see this planet now, as our contact with our inner beast. The one that appears the moment we don’t bath or shave or comb our hair, for few days. She lurks in the dark constantly letting us know that there is no way we can control it. The smell comes first and then nails and hair grow, and if we were to let her be, then we will be completely abducted by the Lord of the Underworld. As possibly Oscar Pistorius was, on Valentines day! The good part is that Pluto places us face to face with the Beast, so that we can own up to it and give her recognition and allow her to lend us the power that helps us survive in this jungle of life. Without Pluto, we would be at the mercy of predators. Pluto lends us the power we need to recognize danger and be prepared for it.
    All my love !

  6. I am a Virgo rising with pluto in the first house, and yes, I completely identify with the before pluto, after pluto stages!! am coming to terms with the gut wrenching intense experiences that always seem to be my life, but now am also convinced I will always come out intact, like a Phoenix rising fom it’s ashes 🙂
