In the world perspective is Uranus/Pluto squared (challenging energy). This is a signal of tremendous transformation, big world changes. This same configuration took place in the 1930s-40s, the 1960s, and now, with major gender changes and shattered world views.
For me, the major upheaval is a mix of Pluto crossing Chiron in the 7th house in opposition to Cancer in the 1st house. Pluto is the planet of transformation. It brings up all the dark nasties to be examined and healed. Chiron represents where you’re wounded. The 7th house is about relationships and the 1st house is about the Self. To simplify, now is the time for all the issues with self-esteem, self-respect, self-worth, and self-love to come up for examination and healing. All those experiences from my past when I wasn’t valued or respected. All the times I haven’t loved myself or didn’t feel loved. All those moments when I criticized myself and compared myself to others and felt less than. That dark, grungy stuff I carry inside is just waiting for understanding, for some compassion and forgiveness, for me to say “I love you no matter what.”
So how do I deal with that? Every night before bed I say the Forgiveness Prayer by Lisa Barnett. [You can find it on p. 48 of the March/April 2017 issue of the Conscious Life Journal.] I forgive all those who have hurt me, those I have hurt, and, last but not least, I forgive myself for any hurts to myself. And during the day, I catch my negative thoughts and turn them into positive ones by sending love, love, love to all parts of me.
