Motivational Shadows Conceal Suspicious Attractions
Current Astro-Clime In a (not so) Succinct Nutshell:
Saturn in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn are in mutual reception, though their relationship is anything but tidy and pristine. Saturn in Pluto's Scorpio domain is being the placeholder for hard lessons learned, a regeneration process through suffering. Even in the best of times, Saturn has a way of getting all up in the face with negative traits that are holding one back from reaching one's highest potential, especially if those self-destructive habits have something to do with the seven deadly sins: lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride. One doesn't have to peer through binoculars to witness glaring examples of each theme ennacted in the daily news.
Pluto in Saturn's Capricorn realm is in a desist and deconstruct mode. He is implementing his "snaking" utensils, plunging the heaping piles of dirty laundry, pulling out what's been soiled by the putrid cesspool backup, hanging it out on the clothesline for all to see. As unpleasant as it might be, the sad truth is, much of society's corporate, religio-politico contructs have been built upon cornerstones of corruption, the prior-stated cardinal infractions designed as insidious mortar. We are witnesses to another inconvenient truth that all the kings horses and all the king's men can't help the little Dutch boy plug the dam, nor can they put Humpty Dumpty back together again. (Pluto likes to work his magic with a slow hand, too. So, get as comfortable as possible and enjoy.)
Concurrently, there is a major pile-up on the cosmic freeway with Mars, Venus, Neptune, Chiron and now Mercury congregating in Pisces. Each comes bearing a torch to help illuminate those items we would probably like better left hidden in the cellar. Yet, in order for there to be healing, the pustulant wound has to be lanced.
Pardon the mixed metaphors, however, motivational shadows conceal suspicious attractions. Why do we glamorize violence, greed and lurid sex? What is it about the allure of vampiric seduction of purity and innocence that holds our captive attention?
Will we be able to see and recognize our reflection in the mirror of unfolding events?
