Pluto in Scorpio Generation from an Evolutionary Point of View:
"Generation We"

by Deva Green

Llewellyn.com - Astro Update - Pluto in Scorpio Generation From an Evolutionary Point of View: Generation We - March 2009

The intention of this article is to describe the core evolutionary intentions of the Pluto in Scorpio generation using the methodology that is applied in the practice of Evolutionary Astrology founded by Jeffrey Wolf Green (author of Pluto: Evolutionary Journey of the Soul volumes 1 and 2).

We will look at this generation from both an individual and collective level (Pluto has both a collective and individual application). In other words, all those that have Pluto in Scorpio have the same core evolutionary intentions, yet each person has a unique natal horoscope that will dramatically alter the expression and personal application of Pluto. For example, in the natal chart Pluto will obviously occupy a specific house, and may be making aspects to other planets (as an example, Pluto in Scorpio in the first house has a vastly different expression then Pluto in Scorpio in the fourth house). The sign that Pluto is in symbolizes the core evolutionary lessons, intentions, and desires of the past of the entire generation that has Pluto in that sign. The specific house that Pluto is in correlates with the unique and individualized lessons, desires, and intentions of the Soul's past.

Evolutionary Astrology incorporates the four natural evolutionary conditions, or states, of the Soul, which further magnifies the diversity of expression that Pluto in the same sign can have in the context of individual application. The four natural evolutionary states of the Soul are the dimly evolved state, the consensus state, the individuated state, and the spiritual state (these states are thoroughly described by Jeffrey Wolf Green in the Evolutionary Astrology material, and also in the newly published book Evolutionary Astrology).

Again, the point within this is that we cannot make generalized assumptions based upon an isolated symbol in the birth chart, but must remember to interpret the natal chart in an individualized and holistic context. Evolutionary Astrology is a natural science, which means it is based upon observation and correlation (no one size fits all). In this article the core evolutionary intentions of all those with Pluto in Scorpio will be described, and the proper method to use to interpret the chart in an individualized context will be applied. In this way, we will understand Pluto in an individual and collective context.

In order to understand Pluto in Scorpio from an evolutionary point of view, we must first describe the meaning of Pluto in the birth chart, Pluto's polarity point, and the archetype of Scorpio. In Evolutionary Astrology Pluto correlates with the Soul itself, the Soul's past patterns of identity association, and the core desires and intentions of the individual's past. The Soul contains within it two co-equal yet antithetical desires: one to return the Source, and one to separate away. The desire to return to the Source, thankfully, is the stronger of the two desires within the Soul. The evolution of the Soul is based upon the progressive elimination, or exhaustion, of all separating desires through each incarnation. One day, only the desire to return to the Source remains. Of course, we all have a choice to resist or cooperate with our evolutionary intentions. Resistance reflects the desire to remain separate from the Source, while cooperation reflects the desire to return to the Source. Desire is the determinate to evolution. It is exactly the interaction of the two antithetical desires within the Soul that explains the nature of our past, our current circumstantial reality, and an opportunity to change destructive psychological patterns that are inhibiting further evolution into new patterns that are in alignment with our current evolutionary intentions.

Mercury Retrograde: Above The Hype and Beyond The Spin
by Marguerite Manning
The very words "Mercury Retrograde" send most people into a tailspin. Every 88 days, the planet Mercury seems to drift backwards in the solar system, wreaking 21 days of havoc. Or so it seems. Astrologer Marguerite Manning, author of Cosmic Karma, thinks we should give Mercury Retrograde just a little more attention than hiding under the covers until Mercury goes direct again. The next time Mercury goes into retrograde, how will you take advantage of the situation?
