Pluto's shooting avalanches

Shooting the “sweet spot” is a technique ski patrols use to prevent deadly avalanches from ruining your fun--and your life. Knowing the astrological weather today gives you the same head’s-up prevention as shooting an avalanche. Those massive downward slides of snow and ice follow the tracks of previous years. Even avalanches get in ruts! At 2:24 AM, PST, the lord of the underworld takes a crack at the fluffy Libra Moon, and you get a surge of power shooting through your emotions. Places where you’re holding your breath on a cliff-hanger feeling, there’s your sweet spot. Pluto will help you shoot it. Be very still like dawn on mountain snow, think of where your life is burdensome, crack it open and let go.
The Force of letting go is with you.

Serious Saturday, February 11, 2012

Aries (March 20-April 19)
Strong feelings about your relationships, the give and take cooperation that makes them work, are piling up like those snow drifts gathering on cliffs. Piling up because you’ve been too busy to look, or they’ve been only dimly conscious. Today you get a surge of power, from the area of your life ambitions, to these emotions. It could show up as an obsessive thought, something you just can’t shake out of it’s repetitive grove. That’s your clue to the next step in the transformation of your life that Pluto orchestrates throughout 2012.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Cliff-hanging deep drifts of emotions have been building up in relationship to your work and your capacity to serve others. Perhaps the week’s busy schedule, or your own suppression of your experiences, kept your from acknowledging how your really feel. Today a small matter surfaces to “trigger” the deeper issues--the expanded understanding developing in you of how life works. Notice a “broken record” thought that acts like an obsession--that’s you clue to what Pluto wants to transform during 2012.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Your 5th house, the area of children, romance and creativity, is where life is just too much right now. Notice the super charged feelings that show themselves today, they are the clue to where you feel burdened and need release. It’s also a clue to the revolutionary changes you want to make (yes, you really do!) this year. Today’s avalanche of feelings, and the letting go, is another step in the shift in consciousness you’re making in 2012.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
It’s a case of “muchness.” Emotions related to your 4th house of home and family are the source of your overload. Something that you have ignored or postponed has built up to the cliff-hanging potential avalanche, and wants to break away. Your saving grace, and the source of your transforming power, comes through your relationships. Specifically, the art of sharing and cooperating with another to form true partnership. That skill is your ammunition to take your shot at letting go and releasing your emotional tensions. That skill is also your cutting edge of transformation in 2012. Notice what upsets you today--stay tuned for more about this tomorrow.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Your avalanche is building in the canyons of communications, where you have so much to say or so many thoughts and ideas unsorted, that confusing emotions pile up. Today you get a surge of powerful feelings, generated from your work. For example, doubt or guilt undermine your confidence in expressing your ideas, and you become obsessed with some error you made. Pluto is transforming your capacity to work and be of service.
Today’s avalanche of feelings is the doorway to your next step.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
The relationship-oriented Libra Moon sheds some light on strong feelings that have been building up in the area of your resources--how you are using your potential, your talents, your possessions. They’ve piled up to avalanche proportions, ready to be cut loose. It will show up as obsession, some idea stuck in your head today, or a power play. Your power surge, the transformative ammunition to release the overload, comes through your creativity.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
A potential avalanche of feelings is hanging out in your 1st house of self-expression, under the light of your Libra Moon. It’s receiving Pluto’s power surge from your house of home and family, the area that holds the trigger. Since the unconscious mind and early conditioning is the main sphere of Pluto’s influence, look for your vulnerable spot in a early experience of being repressed. The trigger may be as small as a phone call from Mom or an unexpected crude remark from a friend, but it will hit the place where you’re overloaded with stress or pain. Maybe you can catch the feeling before it snowballs downhill, and you blow it up by naming and claiming it. Or you see that you’re caught is a slide, so just swim with it to stay on top. Tomorrow this feeling gets a clear voice.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Pluto’s power can manifest as obsessive thinking or compulsive behavior. When it’s in stress aspect to your emotional base, the Moon, there can be power plays that use guilt as a tool to manipulate someone. Feelings have built up in the areas of your 12th house--compassion for others and letting go of the past. Something you haven’t let go of has accumulated too much weight in your emotions. This is your sweet spot. Today you’re getting power surges acting through your communications, your words and what others say to you, that will act like the shot to the avalanche. Releasing the tension. More on this tomorrow, so take notes.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
Creative juice is flowing into your emotions, especially as they relate to your friendships. Some feelings have built up, perhaps unexpressed or even denied, that weigh on you. This is the area of your potential avalanche. The power to shoot it, verses wait for it to fall on you, comes from your 2nd house of resources. Pluto is helping you transform the way you use your birth potential, your ownership of your gifts. A snowballing feeling today is the indicator of where your next step needs to be, the place of letting go.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
A couple of thoughtful days are ahead, in which you get a look at some inherited patterns and the way they propel your feelings into downhill slides. The Libra Moon is adding pressure to your family relationships, your home life, and is the place where emotions have accumulated to the point of needing release. Pluto’s insistence on transforming your concept of yourself, the way your express your uniqueness, comes as power surges to your feelings. You may feel obsessed, like Richard Dreyfus in Close Encounters of the Third Kind. You’re moving mountains.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
The lord of the underworld, Pluto, is sending his power surges from your 12th house--the field of dreams and visions. Today’s tension is with the Libra Moon who’s glow is on your higher mind, the philosophy you live by. This is where your avalanche waits. You’ve had an urge to grow in understanding, to expand your thinking, but perhaps you’ve ignored it in busy times. It’s been building. Now you get triggered by a daydream or vision that carries a lot of emotion. You’re cracking open a new consciousness! The world is hoping you’re paying attention, dear Aquarian. You’re needed.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
Issues of trust and responsibility in business relationships are forefront for you, and highlighted by today’s Libra Moon. She’s also shedding light on issues of you heart’s deepest desires, and this is likely where you’ve piled up feelings that are on the verge of an avalanche. Perhaps you just haven’t paid attention or stopped to meditate quietly. In any case, you are likely to get a trigger, power surge, from a friend that cracks open the tension and helps you let go of an obstacle. Notice what feels like too friggin’ much. That’s your sweet spot.
