Astronomy: While Pluto is usually the furthest planet from the Earth, it has been closer to the
Earth than Neptune recently because it's orbit is so elliptical. In fact, it took only 13 years to
go through Scorpio, and yet will take 32 years to go through Taurus! It's revolution around
the Sun takes 242 years.

Correspondences: Plutonium?, ceramics?, substances very toxic or healing in miniscule
quantities (e.g. snake venom, botulism, fugu toxin); homeopathics, perhaps purgatives and
very hot chilis; deep red, black; xrays, gamma rays, viruses?; undertaker, subway workers,
therapist, miner, crime syndicates, spies, terrorists, researchers, oil industry workers,
detective, radiologist; cancer?, deep rooted ailments, obsessions, skin eruptions; the period
after death and before life.

Principles: Death, rebirth, great endings and beginnings, mob consciousness, atomic energy,
transformation, annihilation, regeneration, elimination, repression of conscious material and
surfacing of unconscious material, control and the loss of control, cosmic union and Tantric
experiences, the awakening of the Kundalini.

The Gifts of the Pluto: Pluto gives us encounters with the uncontrollable: death, our partners,
losses, ego confrontations, occult experiences, and other crises that force us both to rise to
the occasion and to surrender, or stand up for, ourselves. Our capacity to resolve issues, to
penetrate mysteries, to be a conduit for healing energies and insights, to face another with
themselves, to face ourselves, to surmount inner and outer obstacles, and to totally unite
with another are the gifts of Pluto.

The lessons Pluto has to learn: Here we need to learn to let go of willfulness, our desire to
control the situation or another person, our lusts, most primitive urges, greed, and heights of
self-interest, our excessive attack & defense mechanisms, fixations, rigid beliefs, and our
morbidity. We need to bring our hidden Shadow material to the light.
