Pluto and Desire
In Scorpio, it's not quite as simple. The desire continues after the banana is eaten. But this is Scorpio. It prefers the state of desire until it can find the most desirable desire there is. Then the most profound satisfaction. Unearthly pleasure. Spiritual awakening.
The unsatisfied impulse in constant quest can result in obsession and further inability to find fulfillment until a Pluto transit. One can finally get enough.
Some people gain from remaining in this state of desire, and all people do in some compartment of their lives. Some place where they can never get enough. Seventh house, relationship. Sixth house, satisfaction from the job. Third house, the answers. Stuff like that.
So often ancient teachings profess that desire is the cause of human agony. Probably so. But it is also the cause of human ecstasy, plus it's an impossible thing to live without. So we're taught to forsake temptation and even try to lose the urge for gratification, but Pluto shows the human the immense gain that can come through desire. The map to the treasure cave. The root of longing. The full satisfaction. Nothing less.
This type of journey often does get troublesome, desire is not an easy thing to contain. Enter Pluto. Enter Capricorn. Saturn is the purveyor of control and the Plutonian runaway impulses can be regulated and used, resulting in creativity and achievement while Pluto transits this disciplined sign. As Pluto turns his dense little body around and heads back for a last visit to Sagittariusland, I'm getting prepared. A few desires of mine could use some harnessing in the near future.
