Pluto and the fixed cross

Following the 2 articles* on the planet Pluto, I want to point out the impact of the Lord of hell within the fixed cross. (*

The fixed cross represents the signs: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, and the 2nd, 5th, 8th and 11th houses). This is the Cross composed of the four energies which condition the life of the man who is first a probationary disciple and then an accepted or pledged disciple. It invites to follow a path made with a lot of mysteries. It is outstandingly the Cross of the soul. The man who is upon the Fixed Cross is becoming increasingly aware of its direction and influences and does not respond as blindly as does the man upon the Mutable Cross.

The Esoteric Meanings of the Houses:

1st house: emergence of soul purpose, activities of the soul, the aura.

2nd house: spiritual values, use of life energies.

3rd house: mental energy, relating of higher and lower selves.

4th house: the foundation of the soul.

5th house: expression of spiritual will, actualization of Higher Self.

6th house: personality integration, service through healing and nurturing.

7th house: the path of inner union between the soul and personality.

8th house: the path of the awakening of soul consciousness.

9th house: knowledge of Cosmic Law and Ancient Wisdom.

10th house: spiritual purpose and responsibility.

11th house: spiritual visions, aspirations, spiritual groups.

12th house: unredeemed past karma, bondage to personality, selfless service to humanity.

Pluto enters Aquarius!

On the 21st January 2024, the transformative Pluto enters forward-thinking Aquarius. Pluto is a generational planet, meaning his movements are slow and his impact is often powerful. During this period, we must learn to work collectively to better ourselves and the planet.

It is interesting to see that almost half of the signs have no planets (we don’t count the asteroids as planets but they have their importance of course). The lower part of the zodiac close to the Nadir (IC) looks empty. The Midheaven (MC), ascendant and descendant are full. The distribution of the planets shows that this passage might bring to surface many truths and revelations that were subtly hidden during the transit of Pluto in Capricorn within the Cardinal Cross.

Underneath the horizon (line asct-desct) we have a lot of asteroids representing the feminine symbols of the gods, including the black moon in Leo (fixed cross). We can deduct that the feminine energy is still set-aside in our unconscious, ready to cooperate with her male counterpart.

Pluto in Aquarius also act as a scout planet.( The Scout planet rises just before the sun, it neutralizes the solar ego of the sign, colouring the personality with its potential. It’s one of the most important factors that need to be synthesized into the interpretation of the natal chart, as it is a planet acting behind the curtains hiding a tremendous potential. If we see the birth chart as a stage, the sun as the story, the moon as the intrigue, and the planets as the roles of the actors, the scout planet is the unexpected character that brings a spicy taste to the piece.

Change, revelation, truth, reckoning, transformation, metamorphosis, empathy, love, creation, liberation, take-off, revolution, people, world, multipolar, melody, victory, meditation, karma, lineage, inner, force...are the seeds of power that might resonate in our mind all year long!
