Pluto begins his annual 5 month journey back to his own home territory HELL or HADES as the Roman’s called it. Turning Retrograde at 9 degrees 34 minutes of Capricorn April 10 @ 9:21 am PDT/ 12:21 pm EDT
The famous Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch, 1450-1516 painted the most hellish paintings of that terrible Hell hole, filled with Xtreme sinners, to terrify good Christians into behaving piously. John Milton, famously stated that he would “rather reign in Hell, than serve in Heaven.” is more of the modern ilk.
Hell is what we create, Heaven or Hell or a bit of both. If Heaven is on earth here and now then Hell is here and now as well. Pluto/ Hades is Lord of the Underworld. He is the King of the Dead. His world is the world of shades, of the shadow.
We can’t always stay in the Light, although New Agers claim you don’t have to own your own shadow, or spend too much time in the depression, loneliness, desperation, powerlessness, rage, etc. that is part of the bright energies shadow side. Your own shadow side may be hidden from yourself, if you aren’t honest. Your shadow is what you project onto others, the people you can’t stand, the “others,” those who you are jealous of, resent, and compare yourself to.Your shadow is also parts of yourself that you can’t own, that perhaps you are beautiful and worthy of being loved and of having a happy enjoyable life. Your shadow side is also all the reasons why your life isn’t going so great because of all the hexes, curses,black magic your childhood or other things you rely on in ignorance and as excuses for taking responsibility for your life.
Owning your own shadow is a freeing thing. It is your ticket out of hell. But Hell, who was a Nordic Goddess by the way,originally called HEL, is also good. We learn from everything, we have to experience everything. That’s why we are here! So enjoy your journey as Pluto takes you to his home base to show you around. The death aspect is revered by Tibetan Buddhist’s, the charnel ground, the cemetery, that’s where KALI lives, death is destruction of the EGO and all that we” know” and hold dear.
You can’t be fully alive unless you are aware of Death. Use death as an ally.”It’s a good day to Die” is very potent Native American wisdom. Get rid of anything that isnt serving the new higher frequencies now, get rid of old emotional baggage, most of your stuff you dont need, etc. Make way for a new life. We are all going to have to Lose our religions and so much more over the next number of years.
So do die a wee bit daily till Sept. 18th when Pluto turns direct at 6 degrees 57 minutes of CAPRICORN.
