Do you struggle with feelings of unworthiness? I think everyone does at times and some signs and astrological configurations are more prone to it than others. Those with Scorpio or a strong Pluto signature in their chart will feel like they have to earn their keep and the task seems insurmountable.
Likewise, anyone can go through a period of feeling unworthy when Pluto plays hardball with their chart. What makes it worse, Pluto moves slowly so if it’s affecting you, sit back and get comfortable. You’re going to be digging up your own dirt for a while to come.
Here’s the trick. No one loves you because you deserve it. You do not have to earn love. You simply must allow it, if you want it at all. There is no need to justify and no one is keeping score. They aren’t if they genuinely love you. But if due to your own feelings of unworthiness you repeatedly push them away and create pain and distance, even the most loving and devoted will have to weigh the cost.
Do you have Pluto issues? Pluto will take you through the depths of hell and return you to the surface, whole and newborn and forever changed. If you have Pluto issues in your natal chart as I do, you must learn to be like Demeter’s daughter Persephone. Go where love takes you and map out the journey carefully so you can find your way back again and again.
If you are just getting to know Pluto through a transit (those with planets around 11 degrees of any cardinal sign are most affected right now - Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) you may feel overwhelmed, lost, hopeless. I know it feels like death right now but it only feels that way. It will pass and you will cross through. If you aren’t facing literal death, you will rise from these ashes and dance again in the light of day.
Has anyone ever told you that you will never do something. That it’s just not within your realm of possibilities? My step daughter is a woman who was handed this message over and over. The adults in her life had her convinced that she was stupid. Some of them believed she was lazy but she knew how hard she was trying to understand.
The moon is full in Pisces today, near Neptune and Chiron in the sky. And tightly conjunct my natal Saturn in Pisces.
Pisces is the martyr of the zodiac. Keywords for Pisces include imagination, belief, dreamer. And also prison, addiction and illusion. Pisces has faith, believes in the better days to come and sometimes gets completely lost in that hope. Pisces can lose sight of what is real and tangible. Pisces can lose itself completely, forgetting where the edges of one begin and end.
My life is a study in sacrifice at the moment. I don’t say that for sympathy. It is a very good life, privileged and comfortable. And every decision I am making now is for the benefit of those I love. There is a payoff, months from now but if it were just me I would fly and not look back.
When the moon is full it’s energy is balanced by the sun. Full moons always draw us out over an axis. Today’s axis is Virgo/Pisces. Virgo says put your actions where your beliefs are. Pay attention to the details. Serve in genuinely helpful ways, and not just by doing whatever feels nice in the moment. Know where you are going and how you will get there.

Jupiter is so strongly positioned at the link between the grand cross and the grand trine. These are the words playing in my head when I think about Jupiter’s protective influence during these times of dramatic transition.
The building cardinal grand cross is on the minds of everyone who follows astrology. First let me remind you what those words mean in case you aren’t sure. The cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. If you drew a line from Aries to Libra and Cancer to Capricorn you would have a perfect plus sign or cross. When we see planets in this kind of evenly spaced formation on four points of the zodiac we refer to it as a grand cross. It is essentially a fortress. Or a prison. Where ever you turn, there is something guarding or blocking the way. Whether this is good or bad depends on how well you like where you are right now.
If the signs we were talking about were mutable signs, you might be able to negotiate with the guards. If it were fixed, you would certainly be staying put. With Cardinal signs, you are probably moving fast, but more like a high speed locomotive on a track than an off road vehicle. The course is set and the conductor and the engineer are not open to negotiating.
Curious about how this will impact you personally? You will have to look at your own chart to find out or consult a pro. Those with sun or moon near 13 degrees Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn will be most personally impacted. Looking at which houses are affected will tell you how it might play out in your own life.
There is a lot of gloom and doom out there. The sky is not falling. You will most likely survive this and many will even thrive under this event. If you aren’t sure yet what track you are on, expect that to be revealed by next week’s full moon, though by that time your course over the next several weeks is likely to be set.
