Pluto, Poisons, and Healing

A healthy human liver
From birth, every hurt registers in consciousness and is stored in memory to make room for the next bop. "I'll deal with it later." And we do. People have vulnerable areas that are especially sensitive to pain and these repeated hurts accumulate until the time comes for them to surface, to get the attention they cry for, and to be soothed, treated, and healed. Sickness or some external breakdown is the result. Or a Pluto transit.
Daily the body absorbs poisons and is equipped to handle them, but some get stored, and here again, Pluto is the roto-man who finds the impurities, releases them from captivity, and brings them to the surface for removal and curing of disease. This includes both the emotional and physical. They materialize as outer events so people can see and understand, and then change their situations accordingly to prevent the return of discomfort and ultimately to facilitate steps in evolution.
Many people feel victimized when this happens and the notorious horrors of the Pluto transit arrive. With whatever particular painful events occur during the transit, comes the opportunity for permanent healing, one of Pluto's favorite activities. Especially if the opportunity is perceived. There are assorted sensations included in the passage out of toxic matter, both pleasing and unpleasant. I call Pluto the Cosmic Plumber, and no doubt, it can be a messy business. Lifelong buildup is often up for elimination so it can also take time.
When Pluto came to oppose my Venus-Uranus in Gemini, I was busy pecking away at the keyboard joining my compadres in Blogland, sharing metaphysics, and unfortunately, politics. In the beginning I landed in some pretty horrible places with painful words and images eclipsing my own. I read too many blogs looking for a space for my own ideas, with little success. It finally caught up with me and I contracted pneumonia (Gemini-communication-lungs). I was literally drowning in other people's verbiage.
So I stopped reading the blogs and started my own. The pneumonia cured itself. I'm purged and can continue my life, relieved and renewed, never to overdo the intake again and to always remember how important it is for my health and well-being to express myself. Saturn was also on my natal Saturn in Leo. You can attribute the birth of Raging Universe in part to my partner, Pluto.
The poisons are a natural by-product of living and Pluto is there to eliminate them as the individual goes. The liver is also involved in detoxification and is ruled by Jupiter and Sagittarius. It is now known that faith has a great deal to do with healing.
This could be why Pluto through Sagittarius has been so monumental. So collectively noticeable. In some fundamental way, the liver of humanity has been healed in an increment by Pluto and the seemingly endless surfacing of putrid religious matter revealed the curative process taking place. I am of the opinion, of course, that elimination of the poison has occurred to an extent and that some reconstruction in the tissue of collective faith is in the works, especially since Jupiter accompanied Pluto both at the entrance and exit. Time will tell.

I've got Neptune on my ascendant/mercury @ 21 degrees Aquarius, not to mention my nearby sun @ 25 degrees. I'm a little fuzzy on the details of just about anything these days, but I'm thinking all the recent intensity I'm feeling may be about Pluto nearing my north node @ 4 degrees cap and venus @ 9 degree cap. Thoughts on this?

One thing about Neptune, and you're right--fuzzy is it--is that it will be leaving. At least you don't have a Mars-Neptune natal conjunction like mine, where the details of my direction are fuzzy all the time. Neptune on the ASC is like that, since its the natural Mars house. But I think it's merely redirecting you to something a little closer to your ideal. When the fog lifts.

Soon the Aquarius north node will be there and that could be all right.

Pluto to the North is the chance of a lifetime, and yes, it's already operating. You might not notice anything overt but if you're conscious of the dilemmas--release from the past and family problems--then a lot will eventually show. here is some info on the nodes.

Cancer South Node

Capricorn North Node

Yours is an interesting chart, with the rebellious Aquarian urges mixed with the conservative Cap. Can be dynamic. Aquarius leads, though, being your ASC. Neptune should leave you with added grace.

all the recent intensity I'm feeling

It's universal although some seem to have more hardship than others. But then some don't broadcast theirs. And there are compensations. It's relative, and no one escapes the cramping. I see it as a peristalsis that moves one through life, or like a heartbeat. We simply have to have the tightening discomfort for movement. In some areas the individual is more resistant, so the cramp is harder. The trick is to enjoy the moments of release and relaxation.

The reason I don't focus too much on the pain or get too disturbed by it is because I really don't see it as bad. It's a completely natural part of the sequence out of which sprouts big pleasure. People are equipped to handle the pain and intensity and it's a source of pride in the long run as it teaches us about our capabilities and completes our experience. It usually comes and goes. In rhythm.

Some people fear it will never end, and in a way it doesn't. That's another reason I don't worry that much about it and look for a magic cure. There are moments of magic healing but then another part of the psyche surfaces for healing so it goes on all our lives.

In that vein I don't think it helps to fear transits nor the future, nor the natural discomforts of living. The pain can be ridden to transport a person to new places. It's actually a path out of difficulty, but you have to use it and realize that it can't be avoided. Pain and pleasure are constantly being traded.

Anon, jm knows whereof she speaks. :o) I've had Neptune near my midheaven for some time and the fuzziness is still lingering...

Joe, you fuzzball! Somehow you're still able to guide us well, although I'm sure you don't see it. My way of dealing with lifelong Neptune is to try something else...then something else.... then nothing....then something else. The whole thing ends up in a nice weave.

The main thing I've discovered about Neptune is that the path is convoluted and eventually the importance of destination fades. Then as if by've arrived! Realizing, of course, that you were there all along. It's just travel in other-worldly dimensions. I plan to incarnate sometime in the near future. Maybe even get in the driver's seat.

Fuzzy is the story. Soft focus.

And how about this for cruelty?

I was trying to get some forward motion going and I was counting on Pluto in Cap square my Mars. Well just when the square is exact, Neptune will be exactly opposite my saturn, ruler of the Cap. Am I stuck in fuzziness forever? That's the problem with fuzz. I'll never know. I give up.

She has something at 29 Gemini believe and Pluto is just about there. I'll look at the chart. Mars in cancer. She went home to die.

These are complex events. The surface looks like a political tragedy but underneath is her own destiny and the two get very mixed up worldwide.

Mpk that is fascinating.

Seven people were injured on Thursday when Greek Orthodox and Armenian priests came to blows in a dispute over how to clean the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem.

from the same article:

" For a quarter of an hour bearded and robed priests laid into each other with fists, brooms and iron rods...A dozen unarmed Palestinian policemen were sent to try to separate the priests, but two of them were also injured in the unholy melee. "

"Unholy melee".

First I want to say this.

Because of the collective search for life, energy, and significance, the people are going to latch on the the assasination like holy hell, and give it more significance than it has. The story of Pakistan is bitter and complex and what would be fantastic would be for people to gain an understanding of the situation rather than join in the melodrama and assume that that WWIII is back on the table and all of that.

It's fascinating for me to watch this every time. The incredible over-emotional group ritual vs the detached observers understanding.

First, I noticed the 29 Gemini Sun and this speaks of the split between India and Pakistan which has never been resolved.

The "world is outraged" and this is the hook, since almost no one can name their fear and pain and find its source personally. So they hook on to someone elses's.

It was the exact right time for this woman's death and from what I gather it was fast. People in their usual incredibly mixed up selfish way are thinking about their own asses and not the fact that she found release from this difficult life and could be on her way to something better. The mass hysteria is just as dangerous as a suicide bomber, probably much more. It feeds the behavior. It will take many revolutuons of everything for people to evolve.

Of course there will be political results but not what people are screaming bloody murder about now.

It's all a confused unknowable mess, the human condition.

So. She obviously went home to die and the world of politics is corrupt through and through, as they grasp this event for their own political gain. The people in their usual obedience will follow the emotional manipulation and, of course, make a heroine out of this probably corrupt politician, at least I always thought she was.

The interesting part is that it eclipses the fake holiness of religions at this holiest time of year. It's politics and murder as usual. It used to be that these things went on hold at Jesus's birthday, but that trend was changed with the Christmas tsunami and the shift of the earth's axis. Maybe the hold of Christianity is broken.

Mars in Cancer, Sagittarius, homeland ... is anywhere safe?


Its we the people who are at fault as much as the bombers, the politicians, and everyone else for obediently following the agenda and believing what they tell people to believe. It will be interesting to watch her angelic rise and where the devil is pinpointed. That pesky devil.

And keep in mind that her behavior indictated her upcoming death. Riding around openly in that environment, a dramatic SN Leo exit, Pluto opposite her Sun.

All the world's a stage. We're just not getting paid much as extras.

Also keep in mind that all those who cry about the media will be sucking up everything they offer these upcoming days in the continuing drama, ensuring the media's continuing dominance.

Joe, thank heaven for you. Extremely glad you caught this. You have to read between the lines since what's happening isn't the obvious. Political leaders get murdered all the time, but Pluto leaves Sadge only once in about 245 years.

On one hand I understand the need for group ritual, but I've always been wary of mob hysteria. This is behind the religious factor and the need for group ecstasy. It's not Jesus now, it's the suicide bomber and Bhutto. The evil one and the savior. All comic book type mythological fantasy underlining a genuine need for heroes and myth.

If anyone equates this with real geopolitical upcoming events, they are probably barking up the wrong tree.

I'm getting a little tired of it myself. I wish something would really happen. It's the same old thing. Terror, murder, the political sandbox, the frightened astrologers and psychics, the vedic voodoo, blood, blood, blood with the attendant screams, blood soaked saris, the Mars-Pluto voodoo, the upcoming violence, on and on and on ad infinitim.

Doesn't anyone have any real imagination?

The unfortunate part of it is the distraction as the group psychosis takes hold. While the collective eye is trained on the latest usual disaster. This leaves a space for real disaster to enter and for defenses to break down. It's by the grace of god that we manage at all.

One day people will have to stop reacting like odedient dogs.

There could be a silver lining.
The 6 top news stories yesterday had death in every one of them, so the appetite was at a height. Maybe this did it and we can have a week without it, possibly a murder-free New Year's celebration. Just your normal intoxication.

Celebration is hard.

Has the orgasmic moment arrived yet? I don't have a TV. It probably will climax in a few days for the week-end lead-up to the new year. What joy. Is anybody free for anything resembling a good time?

Ding! Ding! Ding!

The dinner bell. Time to tear yourself away from the blood and violence, Islamic terror, the superiority of the democratic world, the coming global panic and burning, and down what might be the 5th square meal of the day. Then some more violence for dessert, sleep, and tomorrow another full day of fear, blood, and violence. Not to worry.

It will take a few years to sort it out, but when Pluto finally makes its last retrograde and goes direct fully into Capricorn in 2009, Mars again is in Cancer. Of course the daily agonies always continue as usual within the larger framework, but then again, it's a matter of philosophy. Because I am so Cancer-Sagittarian I believe there is a larger wheel leading humanity in progressive evolution. Something somewhere is good.

I think so, there are a lot of us storing up energy for the proper moments. I can feel that time drawing nearer. In the meantime:

"One must know how to conserve oneself: the hardest test of independence." -Nietzsche

Mpk, once again, you've centered and aimed with exceptional precision. Do I ever love Nietzsche, too.

Patience has not been my area of expertise, but you are correct. Withholding and waiting for proper timing is the only effective way. And so right about independence. Your quotes are unimaginably perfect every time.

The conservation Nietzsche talks about is exactly what's in store for me with Pluto in Capricorn square My Mars. Not a bad idea.

In terms of the latest Roman circus event, they are all missing the point, as it's supposed to be, and I wonder how much to participate. I can only do my best. Just express my observations in a "conservative" way. You are still a jewel.:-)
