There seems to be a lot of interest in what happens as a result of Pluto transiting through the 12th House and since I’ve had that pleasure, I thought I would relate some of my experiences and resulting revelations.First, it’s important to know Scorpio is the sign on the cusp of my 12th House. And I have my Sun conjunct that cusp at 29 Libra 54 . . . and Jupiter, Part of Fortune, Mars and Mercury all reside in the 12th. To say this was a major transit for me is kind of an understatement. Another factor in my life at that time was Uranus transiting my 1st House and conjuncting my Venus and moving on to oppose my natal Uranus. So . . . Life was interesting.At the time Pluto was starting into the 12th House, I moved 1,800 hundred miles courtesy of Uranus conjuncting my Venus in Sagittarius to be with a man who was considered a spiritual leader. I really didn’t know any of the people in this new community well at all – classic Uranus transit stuff, full speed ahead eyes firmly shut. Pluto was finishing up his transit by conjunction to my Sun at that time. This man I got involved with was 11 yrs older than I, a triple Leo with Mars in Scorpio and Uranus in Taurus squaring his Leo. He also remembered NOTHING of his childhood before about age 10 . . . so you know it had to have been really, really awful.
In essence, the lessons I learned were not from what this man said, but from who he was. He misused kundalini energy during sex to enhance orgasms without informing me first among other things (Pluto/Scorpio/8th House stuff). I only stayed with him for 3 months and was furiously angry with him most of the time . . . and he never did understand why! My explanations made no sense to him at all. After I moved out, I saw him at other gatherings of the spiritual community and could not stand for him to touch me – a gut level reaction.
The months before I moved back to home base, Pluto was moving over my Jupiter and Part of Fortune. Even though the relationship I was in at the time had many good things going for it, it was damaged at the core for two reasons. 1) I had thought this man loved me as I was & it turned out he was just waiting for me to change, and 2) as a result of that flawed experience with kundalini energy, I just couldn’t bring myself to make love with this man. An aside: this man had Saturn in Scorpio conjunct my Mars in Scorpio – this could have been a factor too.
When transiting Uranus opposed my natal Uranus, I moved north, zip, zip, zip and spent most of the next 4 years essentially living alone. During those years I also did a lot of reading on Astrology and looking at charts, and thinking deeply. Liz Greene’s book, “The Astrology of Fate”, opened a door in my mind in regards to Pluto and learning the importance of accepting one’s self as a complete package.
My personal analogy was called “the monster in the garden”. If we view ourselves as a garden and ignore our darker nature, it will grow into a monster in that garden. . . and if we acknowledge and accept that nature without prejudice, it will become fertilizer in our garden and enrich our lives even more.
I will save what happened when Pluto rumbled up to my Mars, Mercury & ASC in Scorpio for another post . . . those experiences deserve one!!
Twilight coming seems to symbolize to me the transition into the 12th House. My favorite time of day too.
