Gemini- Tuesday, July 29, 2014
More time needs to pass before making a final evaluation of a situation that defies rational logic. For now it is best to do nothing. It appears there is a problem, but it’s impossible, as of yet, to know enough about what it entails or how to remedy it. New information will soon bring reassurance and a greater sense of certainty.
The Great Escape
Venus, the symbol of life and all the component parts of creation feel about themselves and how they relate to each, is moving more deeply into the Pluto/Uranus battle zone. Her first contact with Pluto yesterday is being reflected in harsh images of war. Pluto rules the Underworld, known as Hades in ancient Greece. That’s not a pleasant place. There’s a lot of ‘weeping and gnashing of teeth’ down there.
The ruler himself, Pluto, was also known as Hades in more ancient times. When he wore his helmet, his face was an invisible shadow within it. Yes, very scary. The best advice of the day advised against looking at him directly. That attracted trouble, big trouble. For your own safety, it was best advised to look at him askance with quick glances. I don’t know about you, but I’d be quite happy to sprint off in the opposite direction.
Pluto/Hades rules the military, death and debt. It seems strange to mention death and debt in the same sentence, but if you think of the work mortgage which is a kind of debt, the subject gets quite interesting. The root of mortgage is ‘mort’ – meaning death in Old French as well as modern French. It comes from ‘mortuus’ in Latin. This is an interesting and complex topic. There’s probably enough information here to write a book. But let’s leave it there for now. It’s a rather morbid topic and we want to make sure you have a good day, so let’s not hang around Pluto/Hades for too long.
Just one more thing: the Pluto/Venus connection is conjuring up dire images of war in the media. Images of underground tunnels are coming up too. Tunnels and underground passage ways are ruled by Pluto.
Now there is a good side to Pluto/Hades. If he likes you, he will become your loyal bodyguard and protector. It’s like having the US Navy Seals, Green Berets or real tough hit man protecting you.
On the financial side, the Pluto/Venus link is casting a shadow over financial markets. As Venus moves closer to Uranus by week’s end, it implies a shock, blow and unpredictable events. Let’s hope it passes without major incident, but there is the likelihood that something might happen that sends tremors through the financial markets.
For you on a personal level, though, the current planetary configuration is urging you to get down to business in your search for meaning in this Earthly incarnation. You weren’t put on Earth just to eat, sleep and watch TV. Well, let’s hope not, anyway. If it feels as though life has trapped you in a dungeon, you have a chance now to make a break for freedom. Keep your eyes on that fortified dungeon door. It’s about to open. Get ready to make a run for freedom.
