I started writing plays for Moon Pluto reasons. I wanted people to know, wanted an audience to know how it felt inside my head. Truth is that I didn’t set out to do this, but it was the result. And I noticed. The agony, the ecstasy, the obsession, desire, emotional intensity, gunk.
And I recommend this method: make art that reflects your insides so that you can deal with your insides, your demons and your angels. Call it therapy, call it art, call it a 5th House issue, creating something out of nothing. Doesn’t matter. Survival. Don’t we need this? More than diet books? More than celebrity weddings? More than ads for sexier underwear? More than despair? Don’t you need this?
I also started writing plays because a friend, who became my mentor, saw me struggling to get my book of poems published. He suggested I try writing a ten-minute play, a common form these days. I took his advice and I fell in love with the theatre, with the production process, with writing for actors, for the voice. Profound collaboration.
So I’m going to say it again: with the upcoming Eclipse in Cancer, your feelings are all the rage. Not just your home, not just your family, not just your kids, not just your husband, your mother, but you, your core, your moon, which rules Cancer. Feelings, memories, photographs, the past. Who you were.
And with the Sun in Cancer opposing Pluto in the sky now, your feelings are full of power and devotion. Yes, devotion. Pluto is nothing if not relentlessly devoted to your changing. Cornering you. Making you. Die. To yourself. So to speak. 🙂
Today’s wisdom: screw the grand cross and the heavy eclipse energy beating you down. New Moons, and this is a New Moon eclipse, are about beginnings, plantings, intentions, ideas, potential, starting. Work the cross like a big puzzle. A piece of Aries, a piece of Capricorn, a piece of Libra, a piece of Cancer and whatever your natals are, whatever the configuration. Throw the pieces up up up in the air and… how will you put it together? What do you want your life to look like?
And, dear Reader, fellow Star Gazer, the Sun is in Cancer, so feed yourself, and then, like a good Plutonian, disseminate!
