We could write a book about Pluto transits or the current Uranus square Nodes wierdness. But hands up who is not flat-out just doing this s**t? Nobody? I thought so. So here are my speedy solutions to Astro-Fuqery. Note these are suggestions and my opinion, not prescriptions.
# Pluto Fuqery – Jupiter in Scorpio until November 8 is an amplifier of all things Pluto. So your natal Pluto and any Pluto Transit are super-charged. Pluto dredges up the kind of emotions that never make it to social media shares or indeed any shares. “Hi everyone, before I talk about my Reishi Gratitude Smoothie, I’d like to discuss today’s morbid death anxiety and the childhood trauma I believe it is linked to. Also, my bowel movements have been, well, Freudian.” Pluto Vibe is 24-7 woke, triggered and on high alert. The Threat Matrix you’re scanning is your personal realm or the broader world at large, set off by Caligula-like rulers and dystopian dark-ages style news flow. It could be your present or your past – stuck on a feedback loop, where your psyche is still on an old battlefield, like Jake Gyllenhaal’s Marine in Jarhead.
Solution: Wait till Jupiter gets out of Scorpio for a less Plutonic vibe. Remember that Pluto is in Capricorn – with Saturn moving nearer – so take practical, strategic action to foundation and secure things where you can. Being the change you want to see in the world and putting your money into the change you want to see in the world is empowering. Journal out the shittier of your feelings. Parasite cleanses – I don’t know why but they work brilliantly for Pluto transits.
# Uranus-Nodes – Trickster Uranus is squaring the Moon’s Nodes until the end of this year. Think magical-consciousness, synchro-destiny, omens and signals everywhere. If you are at all Uranian (a strong Aquarius Sun, Moon, Rising or Uranus emphasis in your natal energies), you could feel it as a super-wired cognitive process but a condition that is almost like amnesia of the physicality. You’re gliding around the place thinking on multiple levels, making crazy-amazing connections but your shirt is inside out and your last ‘meal’ was marshmallows with some B Vitamins.
Solution: Acupuncture is fantastic for Uranian Vibe. Plant-Based Diet. Upping your Saturnine regimes and rules so they’re set and forget. That way the Uranus Vibe can thrive but your whole life won’t degenerate into an inexplicable vortex of outsider genius.
# Between-Era-Transitional-Angst – In April and May, Chiron and Uranus respectively moved into new signs – Aries and Taurus. This is the backdrop for most of the next decade. However, for the last few months of 2018 and early 2019, the Maverick Healer and the Trickster back into the signs that they were in. So September 2018 until March 2019 is when we are completing the era that began in 2011/2012, taking stock and dealing with any unfinished business from then; literally, emotionally and on the etheric level.
Solution: Get a grip on what that era was for you. Understand it and its lessons. If it were a montage in a movie, what would you put in as the key themes for that character? Usually, the first thing that comes to mind when you think of that era is the answer.
