Next time you look outside and see overcast skies and sense a thunderstorm on the horizon, do yourself a favor. Sit quietly and really listen to the rumble of the thunder which calmly precedes the outburst.
The sound may persist at a low, continuous, pace for a while. Building intensity and momentum. Once the eruption is full on- everybody knows. It’s impossible to hide.
If you’re a hip-hop head, I’m describing the “Quiet Storm” remix by Mobb Deep featuring Lil’ Kim. Think about how you feel during the musical build up before Prodigy spits that first verse.
When the Moon and Pluto come together in a birth chart, the Moon’s symbolism for emotional security needs is partnering with the intensely transformative energies of Pluto.
Those with Moon-Pluto aspects tend to keep a tight lid on their inner world. Very private and self-protective, they don’t like others to witness their vulnerabilities, as they fear too much exposure could possibly result in a loss of personal power.
A Moon-Pluto person’s psyche can be compared to a hotel peephole. They can look out and see what’s going on, but when you try to squint and look in: nada. Prying eyes are a definite no-no.
Moon-Pluto people know that when the full force of their emotions are unleashed we might be ready for a Wyclef/Mary J moment (someone, please call 911!! ) Yet, another reason for the stellar self-control.
If you have this aspect in your chart, there is an incredible potential to use your penetrative psychological skill to arrive at the “heart” of yourself as well as others. This aspect asks that we integrate the light and the darkness by honoring all of our facets, no matter how difficult the process may be.
For those with these natal contacts, it’s important to treat the shortcomings and vulnerabilities of others with extra care. Your piercing insight can build another up to the mountain top or send them wallowing into the gutter.
A deep hunger for intense emotional experiences is indicative of these two planets. Skating on the superficial gloss of life does absolutely nothing towards providing the “food” which you require for your well-being. In fact, behaving in this fashion will bore you to tears.
As a Moon-Pluto person, you must live deeply. You must also realize that such penetration probably won’t have you standing in front of a white picket fence with a Colgate smile wheeling and dealing Corning Ware at a yard sale.
The potency you seek is more likely to come in the package of listening to your best friend’s stories of spousal abuse and infidelity, working as a counselor on a crisis hotline, or being the Psychotherapist who keeps a poker face in the midst of your clients dark sexual secrets.
If you’re from the “don’t worry, be happy” school of thought, you may indeed struggle in this domain. However if you’re willing to grasp the full gravity of this aspect, you will discover that:
You have the capacity to transform your life by using emotional catharsis as an ally, to heal yourself and others.
Yes, Moon-Pluto: even amongst the darkness, there’s light to be discovered.
