Pluto Retrograde: Ordeal “X”

March 29th, 2007 by Voxx

TheGodPluto 1As your favorite Thelemic Astrologer and Psychic, I feel it’s important to explain the meaning (and intensity) of the upcoming planetary motion known as Pluto Retrograde, and how you may be deeply affected by it.

Pluto Goes Retrograde: Pluto will go Retrograde Saturday, March 31st, 2007 at 3:45 pm (PST), at 28:57 Degrees Sagittarius. It go Direct again on September 7, 2007 at 7:54 pm (PST) at 26:18 Degrees Sagittarius.

Personal Effects: How Pluto Retrograde will effect you will be based upon your personal Astrological profile, such as where Pluto and Sagittarius are placed in your Chart. If you’d like more detailed, personal info, you should order your Astro Chart to find out. Then, you can feel free to call my weekly Radio Show so we can discuss how you’ll be affected by this powerful transit. (If you already have your Astro Chart, then feel free to call me on my show, or post your questions in my Magickal Forum.)

About Pluto: Pluto is the ruling planet the Zodiac sign of Scorpio. As such, it presides over the 8th House and governs issues regarding Sex, Legacies, Death (physical, and/or spiritual), and the attendant Transformations that occur as a result.

Meaning of the Term “Retrograde”: When a planet is termed, “retrograde”, it means that it appears to be going backward in the constellations of the heavens, due to an optical illusion. This illusion is based upon the fact that planets further away from the Sun appear to be moving more slowly in their orbits, than those planets which are closer in proximity to the Sun. Therefore, such planets appear to be moving “backwards”.

Pluto Retrograde: Since Pluto rules the ideas of Death, Sex, Legacies, Taxes and Transformation, get ready for your life to change in a big way. Whether or not the change or transformation is pleasant or positive, is largely up to you and how ready you are to evolve as a spiritual being.

Yes, there is a physical aspect to the idea of “death”, wherever Pluto is involved, but just remember we are all just visiting the Earth plane, aren’t we?

Preparing For Pluto Retrograde: Imagine this astrological event as a large wave approaching you from the sea. Take a deep breath, and stay calm. Don’t allow yourself to fear what is inevitable. If you lose control, or try to resist the necessary changes, you will only make it harder on yourself. Remember — growing pains may hurt, but they also make you stronger. Time to read a little Nietzsche.

No matter how prepared you may feel, the changes you will now undergo may still seem rather sudden — but that’s just not true. The changes you experience during this aspect have been a long time coming if you’re really honest with yourself.

Anxiety and Separation Issues: Whomever, or whatever exits your life while Pluto is retrograde, has most likely been on the way out for up to two years (or more), whether or not you have recognized the fact. Think about it.

Out of Control: Okay, so you’re evolved, spiritual and well-balanced, possibly. You are a magickal being, living your True Will, and recognize your patterns and behavior. But, you may still have a hard time reigning yourself in and keeping it together when Pluto is retrograde. Nobody said it was going to be easy, but again, just sit back and try to go with the current.

Magickal Manifestation: Remember, that Pluto Retrograde is the ultimate test of what you have magickally invoked into your life (whether or not it was conscious or subconscious!)

Spiritual Evolution and The Book of the Law: The cosmic lessons of Pluto Retrograde are best exemplified (in my mind at least), by certain verses found in The Book of the Law (Liber Al vel Legis, Sub Figura CCXX, Chapter III), as channeled by Aleister Crowley by the Angel named Aiwass:

Liber Liber Al vel Legis, Chapter III, Verses 42-45:

“42. The ordeals thou shalt oversee thyself, save only the blind ones. Refuse none, but thou shalt know & destroy the traitors. I am Ra-Hoor-Khuit; and I am powerful to protect my servant. Success is thy proof: argue not; convert not; talk not over much! Them that seek to entrap thee, to overthrow thee, them attack without pity or quarter; & destroy them utterly. Swift as a trodden serpent turn and strike! Be thou yet deadlier than he! Drag down their souls to awful torment: laugh at their fear: spit upon them!

43. Let the Scarlet Woman beware! If pity and compassion and tenderness visit her heart; if she leave my work to toy with old sweetnesses; then shall my vengeance be known. I will slay me her child: I will alienate her heart: I will cast her out from men: as a shrinking and despised harlot shall she crawl through dusk wet streets, and die cold and an-hungered.

44. But let her raise herself in pride! Let her follow me in my way! Let her work the work of wickedness! Let her kill her heart! Let her be loud and adulterous! Let her be covered with jewels, and rich garments, and let her be shameless before all men!

45. Then will I lift her to pinnacles of power: then will I breed from her a child mightier than all the kings of the earth. I will fill her with joy: with my force shall she see & strike at the worship of Nu: she shall achieve Hadit.”

Don’t be afraid to let go — Nature will fill the void, so don’t attempt to hang onto people, places, habits, objects or situations that are “dead”. You may still be attached to certain things, but Pluto Retrograde says, “It’s time to grow up now.”

The Reward of Evolution: If you get through this aspect with a good attitude, you’re liable to find out that the worst thing was that you might wished you had simply changed sooner! You’ll most likely enjoy what the future has in store for you!

Spiritual Discipline:
Dedicate yourself to remaining open at this time. If you’re a Christian, develop Faith — if you’re a Thelemite or Pagan, develop Faith in the God of Your Self. It’s time to claim your power!

Success Is Thy Proof: Don’t be afraid — you can make it through that “Ordeal X”, as Aiwass referred to such tribulations. When all is said and done, remember — “Success is thy proof.” Now get out there and kick some spiritual ass … your own!
