A few days ago the opposition of progressed (Solar Arc) Sun and natal Pluto in my chart perfected. I held my breath for a few days to be able to tell a great story, but...
There was nothing dramatic, no change, noone died (well, some died, but it didn't hurt me because I didn't know them) and I didn't become a grandmother, either. No serieus money problems, a smooth and painless reorganization on the job, health OK...or should the effect have been that the doctor adviced not to be vaccinated against Mexican Flu because of an allergy that I have? My oh my!!!:) She added that the Flu is less scary than the allergy.
OK time is up for Pluto! Perhaps there is something coming (by post, at the office on Monday), but I guess that this opposition simply got bye without effecting me. There are several reasons why I should not feel an effect.
1. It is a progression
That means that I slowly moved on to reach this station and there was a development.
2. The secondary Moon made no aspect, it can stil happen when she does.
3. There was no transit.
That should transfer the moment to November 22/23 when transit Jupiter is conjunct progressed Sun and opposition Pluto.
What could have happened? Brady says that a progressive opposition of Sun with a radix position is indicating that you will be motivated by others to decide. The progressive aspect (progressed Sun opposition progressed Pluto) would show a moment of decission that was more 'by heart'. That moment was a year ago. It didn't change a thing, but...I decided to put more energy in my official job and less in astrology. By the numbers of posts you can see that I managed to lessen the amount by 50%.
Noel TYl writes in Solar ARcs that SA Sun - Pluto's effect is like this: "Illumination of power needs; the need to control; new perspectives confirmed in life." My Midheaven is conjunct Sun, and adding this you get: 'striving for power and control; vocational upset and change to adopt new perspectives; power games with important consequences'. P/MC met Zon geeft volgens hem o.a. 'wanting to spread one's wings and fly', Maybe I don't have wings to fly!:) And maybe MY Pluto has another way to express himself.
Pluto is in my 6th house and rules the ninth house in an equal house chart and the eight house in Placidus. There have been contacts with Pluto before, of course. I rectified what I did wrong with P Sun sesquisquare Pluto, when I wanted to quit school ASAP (and I did one year later, as soon as I was allowed to). With P Sun quindecile Pluto I finished my study to be a teacher. With Sun inconjunct Pluto I got my driver's licence. With Sun biquintile Pluto I got a lovely dog (and started training her). With P Sun opposition P Pluto I did a workshop with Noel Tyl in Lisbon (in fact, this was 2 weeks later than the moment that the aspect was tight, so perhaps in two weeks time, something happens:)
So in my chart, Pluto is related to studies, school and workshops. WOW! I AM doing a workshop at the office right now. Perhaps it is more important than I think...?
Other persons have more important Sun-Pluto progressions. That is when they are important. For example, Hitler. He had Progressed Sun opposition radix Pluto and wrote Mein Kampf. I wrote a short story, just for fun and finished it last week. It is not the same, but Agatha Christie was also writing when she had progressed Sun opposition radix and progressive Pluto. She wrote her autobiography. Pluto is her ruler 3 in 10 in the natal chart and ruler 1 in 8 in the progressed chart. Perhaps she thougth that she had not much more to live (she was already 77) and it seems that she suffered from dementia. I have another example: Tina Turner's progressed Sun oposition radix and progressive Pluto between September 1996 and September 1997. That was during her come back toour after a period of rest for four years. Pluto really intensified life. Marshall Tito was about 4 to 5 when he had Sun conjunct Pluto and was living with his grandfather for no mentioned reason. Seems rather intense to me! In 1934/1935 Salvador Dalí had P Sun conjunct Pluto. That is when he married Gala. They say that he never had sex with a woman before. The conjunction is the symbol of initiating things and Pluto is also the symbol of sex. In some person's charts, it is. In mine it is a training!
