Happy New Year! The Cosmic Story is definitely making a statement with the Capricorn New Moon falling on New Year’s Day. The old year and our old story are now in the past and we need to create a new story. With Pluto joining the new Moon, our cosmic instructions tell us to give the great god Pluto the starring role. We often give Pluto (or the Greek Hades) a bad rap, making him the heavy who causes all our troubles.

Oh no, I’ve got a Pluto transit to my Sun! That’s why things are so bad. We assign him all the dark, evil and twisted aspects of our own inner psyches as well as all the trouble the world dishes out to us. But that’s not who Pluto is. It’s hard being the Lord of the Underworld! At some point, every soul passes through his realm, carrying all those twisted desires. His is the force that contains and incubates them into new life. Without him, we’d be stuck on the surface of life, never experiencing the highs that are the other side of our lows.

In our binary world, we need both experiences to be whole. And things aren’t bad because of Pluto. Pluto energizes evolution. It’s our attitude which makes experiences bad or good. After all, Pluto is one of the gods of change, more specifically the archetypal energy of death, initiation, rebirth and transformation. It’s our cultural and therefore personal belief that change is bad that makes Pluto the villain.

Pluto is one of the gods who helps us leave behind our patriarchal conditioning so we can become conscious agents of change. This is the initiation Planet Earth is going through right now -- can human beings become conscious agents of evolution or will we self-destruct rather than change? And with all this going on in the sphere of Capricorn’s influence, the outcome of the initiation is that it’s time for the human race to grow up, to grow in maturity and responsibility and stop acting like male adolescents -- I include women in this statement.

In our patriarchal version of adolescence, our being (the feminine) is swept away by our emotions (and therefore not to be trusted) and our doing (the masculine) is all about aggression and competition to be on top of the heap. The initiation we face personally and collectively is that we must become adults and learn to discipline our minds, understand and channel our feelings and dedicate ourselves to our spiritual purpose. We have to claim our spiritual inheritance and become co-creators of life. And we’ve set it up so that if we fail this initiation, the Earth herself just might kill us off.
