Pluto and Uranus

“As we move into the dark of the Moon, it is important to honor this time of darkness, this liminal time. It is a time for being, for dreaming and for reflection — not a time for clarity or for action.” Gail Byrne

As Halloween approaches we are in a place of mystery and magic – when the veils between the worlds are thin and the presence of those on the other side – friends, family and ancestors – may be felt more strongly. On Halloween the Pluto/Uranus square is exact as the Moon opposes Uranus and squares Pluto . This can create a volatile atmosphere as well as the eruption of deep feelings. It is wise to observe this time – through the New Moon/Solar Eclipse on Nov 3 – as a journey of exploration through hidden realms. Carl Jung and others have written about the importance of owning the shadow – those parts of ourselves we do not acknowledge consciously that, as a result hold great power. Use this time period leading up to the Solar Eclipse on Nov 3 to develop more conscious awareness of this side of life.
