Let me baptize my Soul with the help of your waters
Sink my pains and complaints
Let the river take them; river drown them..."
The energy of Pluto often feels dire, but not for reasons you would expect. Death and transformation are never easy, but it is the surrendering to this cycle that can be debilitating. The week ahead will be a test for us all as we closely examine those patterns, structures, and routines that inhibit us from growing, evolving, and transcending. Since the Moon will be in close proximity to the dwarf planet, it is safe to say that our emotional responses must be carefully monitored. Should you find yourself in a difficult situation that triggers any kind of discomfort, the same old reactions may no longer serve you. Instead, you must feel the feels, and lean in to whatever unravels.
This is a lot easier said than done, of course, but you can find solace from the caregiving energy that Cancer bestows. What shifts, ends, peaks, or culminates will be no match for the love that follows. Be gentle with yourself, then, and be gentle with others. Know with certainty that should you adhere to the clap and clatter of this Thunder Moon, an element of your life will be changed forever, and for the better. This is how Pluto operates; something must dissolve by way of catharsis before you can be pieced back together. I suggest you prepare to come undone, dear reader. The courage it takes to do so will buoy you to the surface, baptized and reborn.
Check your horoscopes to see what’s in store this week ahead, and don’t forget to read for your Ascendant sign, too.
