I named my blog Moon Pluto Astrology because of my Moon Pluto conjunction in my 1st House.
It was my first astrology reading with the man who would become my teacher and he saw that and said “emotional intensity.” It felt like he knew me. All my so-called problems summed up. Not that he was summing me up. Just that it explained so much.
Do you have a natal aspect that sums you up?
And of course I am more than that (and you are more than that) but… 1st House planets (the Aries house in a “natural” chart) are hot hot hot, on fire, no matter the sign they are in. I’m Moon on fire, Pluto on fire, Virgo on fire. Volatile? Magical? Destruction. Creation.
Only those who live with me know for sure 🙂 the Moon rules home.
One of the Moon Pluto issues that I love to address is “emotional regulation” and this is on my mind a lot these days.
A new member in my household is “tinkering with my Virgo routines” as S. said (in my chat room). And that’s putting it mildly. By trial and error though, volatility and magic, we are figuring it out. He has the patience of Job.
I am not a cutter (referring to the phrase in my blog title). Never was. But I understand the impulse. When you feel so much on the inside… doing something on the outside, so to speak, can relieve frustration if only for a moment. Get it out get it out get it out. I can’t tell you how it is that I can make that mental leap towards understanding self-destruction as though it were my own, and yet I do.
Music for cutters: it was a phrase M. used the other day about the music I prefer to listen to. And I SING. Not so much around him but singing is my cutting, my release. Gets the blood pain out. Soothes me.
All Moon Pluto people must learn to master their impulses. Otherwise it’s often variations of a theme: drama, helplessness, alienation, isolation (no matter how many friends or lovers you acquire), intensity, fear, sabotage, crisis.
What to do instead? Make art. Practice mindfulness. Yes it is that simple. Simple but not easy.
