Because my natal Sun is 1° Capricorn, transiting Pluto is currently sitting on my head, and He’s going to be there for a good long while too. Okey dokey, I figure it can’t be any worse than what all I’ve lived through over the past decade or so. If anything it’s the cherry on the top actually and I need to relax and go with the flow. Heck, it should be easy at this point right?
At the moment I may not be the best person to be talking about this….or….I really am in the Plutonian Capricornian Groove and have an extremely up close and intimate viewpoint because Pluto IS sitting on my face right now! Hummm, I can’t tell yet as it’s all pretty weird and transitional at the moment. Good I sense however, but weird. What’s that strange dank smell anyway?
I hear Pluto, Lord of the Underworld, banging and poking around in The Basement with a flashlight and yelling back to me, “Look, see that moldy pile of ancient fear, trauma, anger and confusion over there in that corner? Get in there kid, ya gotta clean it ALL out now. It’s all gotta go gotta go gotta goooooo. This ancient filth can’t remain no matter what so get in there and get every little crumb, every tiny bit. It’ll be worth it kid, trust me.” Pluto smiles, nods and winks at me from the doorway of the basement while pointing the flashlight over to a far dark dank corner.
I’m thinking,“Do I have a choice at this point? Not really so just get on with it. But I’ve already cleaned out the Basement…a few times! Damn, there’s always more. No rest for the weary. That silly TV commercial song is playing in the back of my head…’Life’s messy, clean it up!’
“Stop talking to yourself about how tired you are and how much you’ve already done and just get in all the corners real good. That rotting ancient mess has been down here for Ages n’ Ages and it’s really putting a crimp in humanities style so hurry it up kid!” Pluto yells from the bottom of my solar plexus tapping the back of my spine with his flashlight.
“Hey, most of this old stinky crap isn’t even mine so cut me some Lightworker slack here okay Darth Vader?” Pluto’s ignoring me, reading some decades-old tattered wet newspaper headlines laying at his feet; something about mass murders in Chicago. Grunt sniff.
” Where the hell’s the broom? Hey, shine that light over here at least will ya…”
I remember being very young and my parents taking me to Knott’s Berry Farm where I saw my first little goat. (This was a very long time ago when they had goats and seals and such there.) I was too young to realize that I was a Capricorn but I sure tuned into the little goat that special day. I remember it like it happened yesterday. I stood there watching every move he made, how his legs and hooves moved, the sounds he made, his mouth, his tiny straight teeth. I was infatuated with him on the spot as any good Capricorn kid would have been.
As I watched him playing, jumping and running around in his pen, I noticed that he’d stopped to eat something laying in the dirt. I strained to see what he was eating and when I did I was shocked and very scared. That happy, jumping, bouncing little goat was eating an old metal soup can and a cardboard box! I was mortified that he’d die from eating the horrible trash someone had put in his pen. Oh no…he’s going to get sick and die…aaaaahhh!
Then the magic happened as it usually did/does. I get a different perspective and it all instantly falls perfectly into place. I understand from another level and all is right and wonderful with the world again.
There I stood watching my new little goat friend eating the TRASH and I understood in those few seconds that… That is what goats do. They eat trash and turn it into life-sustaining food. I smiled with my new knowledge as I watched the little goat eat the cardboard box and chew and chew on the old beat up metal soup can. All was good and perfect in the Universe again. Happy happy day, no dead little goats!
So that’s what goats do. It’s also what Capricorn mountain/sea Goats are capable of doing not only for themselves individually, but for everyone else too, if energetically predisposed in that direction to begin with. Now with Pluto in Capricorn—last of the earth signs—things are really going to take off in those old world high drama sorts of ways where many people aren’t sure if they should be seriously worried or celebrating finally. I like this…I like this a lot.
