Great Transformer Pluto stations retrograde this week, at the same time making a harmonious trine to the dark feminine archetype Black Moon Lilith, currently in Virgo. It's a powerful combination that brings all matters pertaining to truth to the forefront of consciousness. Power dynamics being the theme we can expect some revelations both in our own lives and on the world scene.
The Pluto station is powerful in its own right. Pluto is currently in the sign of Capricorn, 2008-2023, ruling long term processes of transformation in this earth sign of organisation and structure. Both Pluto and Capricorn are deep signs. Pluto as Lord of the Underworld and Capricorn's (the goat with a fish's tail) ranging from the depths of the ocean to the top of its chosen mountain. This combination is about reforming the structures of society from a personal level to a global one. It's a big process - the energy of Pluto shattering structures that limit and confine (even though they may be comfortable) and redefining power structures. Capricorn is the sign of authority and Pluto's transit here brings all false authority (not based on truth and integrity) to its knees. We can see these themes playing out on a social and global scale. It's a transit that is life-changing in irrevocable ways; choiceless choices.
Black Moon Lilith is currently in Virgo, the sign of purity, service and processes of refinement. Black Moon energy is primal and focuses, much as Pluto, on what's hidden beneath the surface. With Virgo being the sign of discernment and a keen eye for 'what's wrong', the trine with Pluto amplifies this focus on 'untruth'. It's a calling for purification of toxicity on every level. The personal focus being on habits and responses to life that are self-defeating, self-sabotaging and hypercritical. Virgo being an earth sign, and one of the signs associated with health, our mind-body relationship - diet, exercise, stress levels and lifestyle are also primed.
The relationship between these two power-house planets is flowing and harmonious so the potential is a depth perception that offers solutions to long-standing dysfunctional patterns. There's an energy of great resourcefulness where solutions to our human dilemmas can be mined from the psyche.
Awareness: see beneath the surface of current experience. Whatever's taking place is a call for attention from an aspect of the psyche, particularly old power/control dynamics, manipulations, blame/shame games. Feeling powerless - take action. Outraged - take action. Feeling toxic - take action. Take action from the truth as its revealing itself in your life. Capricorn is the sign of responsibility and growing maturity, where we empower ourselves through response-ability for life experience.
