I always enjoy telling this story to my friends because it feels like a twisted fucking fairy tale.
Learning astrology helped put so much into perspective for me and helped me fix myself in ways I never imagined. It’s a great tool to use to get to know yourself and position yourself to take advantage of good astrology events and not so good ones.
Speaking of not so good ones…
Alright… so let’s go back to Dec 25, 2020.
Before COVID, my mom would host a Christmas Brunch at her house, or as some of my friends like to call it, “Petty Christmas”. 😂 I was pregnant, and my aunt insisted on doing a gender reveal so we decided to do it the same day since everyone would already be together. It’s also the day Pluto hit my ascendent at 24º Capricorn, which if you know anything about astrology… this is some mf bullshit. lol I can’t help but laugh now thinking about how young, hopeful and foolish I was at that time. I had no idea that Pluto had pulled up on me and was about to stomp the shit out of my whole entire existence. Somehow this clip of my gender reveal by fireworks video is the perfect depiction of what was to come! Explosions! Screaming! People running for cover. lol
Basically… everything changed. 😂😂 I’m always interested in knowing what situations manifest for people under certain transits. For me, Pluto hitting my ascendant manifested as me having a baby and experiencing all the challenges that postpartum in a pandemic brings. I was LEAST prepared for the changes that you go through in all of your relationships – work, romantic, friends, family – all that shit got rocked. lol
I’ve heard that when Pluto hits your ascendant, it kicks off a new 29 year cycle. It’s like a leveling up. But in an overwhelming way. A way that rips you apart and leaves you broken in pieces on the floor. I remember when I started going to therapy while I was in the thick of it; after explaining my life to my therapist she looked at me and said “Wow, you’ve been dealing with a lot, but I’m really excited for you.” I was confused af until she said “Now YOU get to choose what happens next. What pieces will stay, what pieces will go and who will be around to see the end result.” I’ll never forget the impact of those words.
It’s been such a beautiful death…
