This morning I started re-reading Donna Cunningham’s wonderful wonderful book, Healing Pluto Problems and I was dipping in and out of different chapters and was struck by some of her thoughts on Pluto and guilt and starting thinking about some of my relationships and how many I continue because of guilt rather than authentic conscious choice. And how much i.e. is it half guilt and half choice? 80/20? 60/40?
I’m just beginning to think about this and make discoveries so I thought I’d bring it up here of course and ask you to ponder same if it speaks to you.
And that if I were able to release myself from these guilt feelings, that I need to maintain or continue in relationships that at best no longer suit me or at worst are unhealthy or keep unhealthy patterns alive for me… well… it just blew my mind the transformations (Pluto!) that could occur. What I could open myself up to. What I allow. What I attract. Something I haven’t imagined in a long time. The image I’m getting is… as if there IS NO HORIZON in view and suddenly you read or hear something or learn something and your brain clicks over and you know what to do. You know what you need. You know what’s right in your world and you know what you’ve outgrown.
Thank you Donna! I don’t know if you’ll ever see this blog, but your books are pure treasure and pleasure.
All this, too, came out of the blue this morning. Cunningham’s book is another one that had been in storage for a few years. I’m rediscovering my old favorites now that the boxes have come home to me.
It was a nasty transit (Saturn in Virgo on my Moon Pluto conjunction in the 1st House with transiting Uranus opposing from the 7th) that took the books away and now they come back as transiting Mercury trines my Jupiter (mind expansion!) and transiting Pluto at the end of my 4th House trines my Ascendent: talk about healing Pluto problems! The First House is *me* and the 4th is the past (home, family, mother, etc) and Pluto is moving out and moving on. In MoonPlutoLand, insights, revelations, are almost as good as breve lattes and warm cookies.
Are you making discoveries? What are your thoughts on guilt? And, by the way, if you are sad about being Valentine-less on Valentine’s day, read my previous post on Pisces Season. That post is for you.
