COMING SOON ✨ THIS IS A VERY SMALL TEASER OF WHAT’S TO COME IN MY UPCOMING BOOK!
Chapter 6: Pluto Transit Ascendant: Transformation Station
So what is up with Pluto anyway? Pluto represents that energy according to Western Astrology a little something like this: TRANSFORM OR BE DRAGGED. Aka, if you don’t show up for your soul work or very simply, the challenges of your life, LIFE WILL FEEL LIKE A DRAG. Pluto represents our inner power, our ability to heal and transform, it’s our inner powerhouse, our inner mystic. Pluto beckons us to evolve and to understand that the shadow is a part of the journey of human incarnation. Everyone undergoes Pluto transits, you are having one now! Your unique Ascendant Sign determines which house Pluto is traversing for you currently in 2019 as Pluto moves through Capricorn. Here’s an outline of the Houses, you can see which part of your life is being transformed, evolved & upleveled and in some cases even leveled for the sake of growth, by Pluto.

Now here is the thing - do not fear anything having power over you. The Astrology I teach is Empowerment Astrology because I started noticing within myself over the last decade of studying and doing readings that everyone (myself included) seems to look for the “good” and the “BAD” happening within everything, especially Astrology.
The reason we do this is because our brains are functioning from a mammalian / primal perspective which says: “WATCH OUT FOR DANGER, PLAN FOR EVERY PROBLEM, THINK AS NEGATIVELY AS POSSIBLE, WHAT IF WE DIE, WHAT IF WE CRY, WAHHHHHH” Sound familiar? Of course it does! This is one of the parts of the collective human experience spurring from millions of years of dealing with pretty horrific and challenging circumstances and yet, WE PERSEVERED! And here we are, mind and heart ready and available to learn New Age, Empowering ASTROLOGY! (Cue the happy horns!)
I bring a little humor and some factoids on human evolution because: I moved through a decade of Pluto transiting my 12th House aka my soul beckoning me to grow the fuck up. If you can believe it, I actually used to kind of suck. And I say this with love. I can guarantee a lot of people from my past do not like me, and may not respect me. They may laugh that I am even known as a spiritual teacher, or a Women’s Empowerment Coach. I bring this up because I want you to know that I was once very young minded, very selfish, very reactive, very self-involved, very addicted, very fearful, very petty, and a lot of other very’s that aren’t very pretty to admit. I like to look at my birthtime, birthplace, birth MOMENT as my soul choosing: “Ok, this gal is gonna be born 6.5 weeks early so she can be an ARIES with a CAPRICORN RISING and overcome some of this silly bullshit she’s been holding for lifetimes. SHE IS HERE TO TRANSFORM, WATCH OUT WORLD!!” I also want to illustrate that you too can forgive your past. You can forgive whoever you used to be. If you now don’t love who you are, I have incredible news for you: YOU CAN CHANGE. That’s what I did, I chose to change, I chose to show up for my soul homework. It definitely felt like I was kind of forced to change, but hey, a 12th House transit calling you into your Soul Work can totally feel that way! Key is: SURRENDER TO THE PROCESS.
