What happened to Pluto?
The recent demotion of Pluto from Planet status to "dwarf" has led to much speculation as to the significance of this move for the transformation process of planet Earth. Guest astrologer, Marielle Croft, provides some insight.
Why are there several great religions in the world instead of only one? Are there many Truths? Why is there a variety of Astrology systems (Vedic, Western, Sidereal, Tibetan, etc)? Why all the different languages? If something is right, shouldn’t it be unique and good for all? Perhaps this only confirms how little we know about the complex mystery of the Creation.
If there are several systems such as Religions, for instance, it probably is because there is a larger knowing or larger Truth that contains them all, which validates their individual existence as an important part of a larger whole. From a human point of view, we are limited by our sensorial perceptions and, although we aspire to the greater Truth, we can only embrace parts of it. In order to access the larger picture, it certainly is important to maintain an open mind. My truth is not greater than your truth! Yours can teach me something that is not included in mine and, thus, giving me a wider access to the Great Mystery. In remaining open, one can begin to decipher a larger reality that is revealed when embracing and exploring diversity.
On August 24th, 2006, the International Astronomical Union convened in Prague, Czechoslovakia, voted to change the number of planets to eight. Pluto was demoted to a dwarf celestial body. In Astrology we acknowledge that a new planet is discovered when enough people are ready to respond to its energy. In the old days before Christ, astrological planets consisted of Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars. Then Jupiter was discovered, and eventually Saturn, and all the other planets up to, very recently, the discovery of Chiron in 1977. Each new discovery has coincided with a new level of social and, eventually, individual evolution. For instance, in the late 60s and early 70s, the new “pre-Chiron’s discovery” paradigm occurring was that, for the first time in the history that we know, people became interested in working on themselves. We saw the emergence of healing methods such as hands on healing, rebirthing, gestalt, primal scream. Those techniques have evolved so much over the years that there are very little secrets left about the multidimensionality of our being. It now is possible to clear our energy field, our chakras, and our meridians, to uncover the secrets of the unconscious and heal trauma, to explore the subconscious and to discover our own mystery. This revealed Chiron’s potential: the “wounded healer”. It holds a key out of our suffering and into our realization.
