PLUTO wants it, badly.
It doesn’t matter what you want, if Pluto has you in his crosshairs he is intent to take it from you, and he will use any force necessary. Death and rebirth is a supernatural process. Sure, you may try to fight it (as ego-driven MARS often tends to do) but the more you struggle, the more your fight becomes interminable, unyielding, gruelling and vicious.
Even if you do manage to triumph through a series of ruthless and indefatigable battles, you will have somehow lost something you were really attached to in the exchange. Your brush with Pluto ultimately leaves your ego with an inconsolable sense of loss and grief, after which, you will never be the same. Broken and worn, you must eventually pick up the pieces and go on.
In the Aries-Capricorn exchange, it’s always the individual vs the state. Which state? The state of total patriarchal control over the desires of the autonomous individual.
Whether you’re engaging in the supernatural struggle yourself or you’re seeing it going on around you, the “5 Stages of Grief” – those of Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance become one hell of a journey. Dealing with the aftermath of post-traumatic symptoms and the seeking of treatment for heavy loss could very well consume much of your conscious behaviour, shaping your subconscious (supernatural) self in irrevocable, yet indelibly precious ways.
Sure, you will never be the same, but you will not want to be. If you have survived, then you have gained something inestimable.
From the Swiss authority who pioneered a scientific study in the realms of death and it’s aftereffects:
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
When Pluto squares Eris (2020-21), life on earth appears to be going through one hell of a struggle. When all of humanity starts to show its darkest, ugliest side, it is a call for the beautiful people to strategically step up and shine their inner light.
