Pluto and the Riddle of Gold

One of the fundamental challenges of our lives is that we are habituated to living in existential dread. That is to say that we are all, to one extent or another, aware of the blissful consequence of living in the moment, and every one of us, at some time or another has experienced those happy glimpses of eternity wherein there is no future and no past, and we find ourselves bathed in contentment, without a care in the world. As children, assuming a certain quality of care and comfort, we retain few memories, because trauma aside, our sense impressions are...

Seven Habits for the Saturn – Pluto Year

If you read my last piece then we will both agree, it had a bleak tone. That is natural astrology, or astrology unvarnished, which is different from new age astrology. Part of the conundrum of the evolutionary ideals of contemporary stellar mechanics is that it must, in some quarters at least, always have a positive tone. This is nonsense, because it ignores the missing component: you. A positive outcome cannot be guaranteed, but your approach to the prevailing conditions will greatly facilitate an increased likelihood of one. What this means in miniature, is that the bleakness of Saturn Pluto is...

Musings on Saturn-Pluto

The arc of Pluto, as I have discussed many times before now, is always toward unknowing. Like anything shut away from air and light for too long, it might turn, and become a blight that slowly poisons the host from deep within. For this reason, the darkness of Pluto’s domain must be broached to allow... Continue Reading →

The Law of Karma

Life is essentially a cheat and its conditions are those of defeat; the redeeming things are not happiness and pleasure but the deeper satisfactions that come out of struggle. F. Scott Fitzgerald   Is it possible to have too much of a good thing? Whilst we all tend towards disparaging our ill-fortune, I think we would all agree that suffering does indeed build character, and that those who have endured considerable hardship are often the first to engage life with empathy, compassion and kindness. True, it is not always the case. There are many who, unable to rise above their...

Hadean Planets and Spiritual Work

How do we work with Pluto, and his co-rulers of the Underworld, to emancipate ourselves from difficulty, and to do the spiritual work that is our life's purpose? I would argue that it is, like so many spiritual methodologies and paradigms, at once incredibly simple and most decidedly difficult, but that we all have the power to make simple choices that will curb the darker temptations of Pluto and lead us into the light. All we have to do is decide. This discussion will take up about 40 minutes of your time, and if you would prefer to download the...

Not Enough Pluto

Not enough Pluto. Yes, it really can happen, and it's potentially devastating. We have looked closely over the years at several cases where a person is born with a surfeit of Pluto energy. The principle is that to have sympathy with an energy does not always mean to have more of it, indeed, Pluto is subtle, deep and most of all hidden, so to have Pluto in positive, outgoing and extrovert signs, like Leo, Libra and Sagittarius is uncomfortable for Pluto, who enjoys Scorpio for precisely the reason that he can remain subtle, deep and hidden. The cautionary tales...

Too Much Pluto…

Join me for a relaxed half hour of discussion on the phenomenon of having too much, or too little Pluto. How to tell if you have just enough (or too much / too little) Pluto and what the likely effects will be in either case. We also take a view on ancient vs. current ideas... Continue Reading →

Pluto and Me: the Two Great Invisibles

It's the great conundrum of science and the reasoning mindset that it cannot attune to states of being that are in excess of itself. So science cannot get to grips with love - whether personal or altruistic - except to say something banal and senseless about chemical activity in the brain. The only evidence that can be made in support of love is anecdotal; circumstantial even. The reasoning mind cannot say anything insightful about it at all. Philosophers and great thinkers throughout time have attempted to tackle these thorny subjects. Unfortunately, when Descartes concluded that 'I think therefore I am' he committed an act of genocide on higher states of consciousness for all future generations.
