    Humanity’s Shadow Is on the New Horizon

    astrolIn astrology, Pluto is associated with Hades, the God of the Underworld. The underworld serves as a coping mechanism where we unknowingly stuff all of the fragments of ourselves that are too painful or too hard to allow into our consciousness. But everything we repress, hide, or deny comes up in our shadows, and often gets its expression through projections. As New Horizon is sending us unprecedented pictures of the shadow keeper, we are collectively bringing light and awareness to this uncomfortable realm.

    Humanity is so avoidant of Pluto’s domain that, not long ago, we tried to deny Pluto its rightful place in our collective psyche by denying it full status in our solar system. The futile effort to ignore the things that we disown is now swinging in the other direction. If you wish to free yourself by consciously engaging with your shadow, simply become aware of your judgments of others. Within these judgments are the buried treasures of your own wholeness. You will know if you have taken ownership when you are filled with compassion and love…even for your enemies.

    ARIES (March 21–April 19) It is time to bring more awareness to your internal struggle between a role you have adopted around your work identity, and the call from within your gut to express a more tender and vulnerable you. One of the two has been accepted as your true self, while the other has been shoved into the dark. Only you can decide if you need more lion or lamb.

    TAURUS (April 20–May 20) Opening your communication channels beyond your current capacity requires that you speak feely without inner censorship. As the more tender side of your expression bubbles to the surface, it is likely that you will struggle to keep the deeper vulnerable feeling down. Do your best to release what you can, as uncharted inner joy will meet you.

    GEMINI (May 21–June 20) The shadow side of family relationships is popping up like acne on a teenager’s face. There is an imperative to fight your way through the entanglement so the integrity of your own distinct self can be fully known. Those who are not invested in keeping you snarled in the enmeshment will see and celebrate you like never before!

    CANCER (June 21–July 22) Look closely at the relationships that repel you, and let yourself go wild with judgment and criticism until you are out of breath. After exhausting yourself, take a good long look in the mirror until you can see each and every one of those disowned traits within yourself. The results will astound you.

    LEO (July 23–August 22) This is such a beautiful time to shine with all of your natural colors, but you will need to open your dream self to its widest aperture in order to assimilate the judgmental voices that are materializing out of thin air. Resist all temptations to swing your sword wildly in a futile effort to quell the irritating demons. Rather, invite their messages with intense and deliberate curiosity.

    VIRGO (August 23–September 22) You will witness much drama and struggle in your community this month. Pace yourself with the amount of time you are willing to invest in this ring of fire. Realize that your most reliable and interesting friends right now are the ones whom you cannot actually see with literal eyes, or feel with your other four physical senses.

    LIBRA (September 23–October 22) Don’t throw the white flag of surrender onto the playing field too soon. Although you are the zodiac diplomat, sometimes there is value in a good fight. The current of this conflict carries a truth that can only be discovered with intense pressure from the opposing poles. Your role is to be authentically and fiercely engaged with your emotions.

    SCORPIO (October 23–November 21) Don’t be alarmed if you find the world reflecting an image back to you that is completely misaligned with how you are actually experiencing yourself. You are the keeper of the book of shadows for humanity, and everyone is peering through your archetype, reading their own chapters in a movement toward wholeness.

    SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21) It is important for you to take a journey with the intention of having fun. Just know that while you were packing your bags, a few family shadows jumped aboard like bed bugs. They will be impossible to eradicate, so ask them what they need, and then try to show them the lighter side of life.

    CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19) As much as you would like to have a little mid summer fun with your family and beloved, someone in the clan will keep throwing gasoline on a fire you thought was extinguished. This irritant will help you to clarify your needs, which are not that easy for you to realize. Sometimes anger helps us draw important and necessary boundaries.

    AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18) They say that the body never lies. If this is true, you must occupy your body in order to be present to the truth. You are being called to make big decisions within your partnerships, and these important steps cannot be led by your head. Trust your God-given vehicle to signal the highest and truest path.

    PISCES (February 19–March 20) Let work and play begin to mingle until you are unable to tell them apart. Compartmentalizing for the sake of security will no longer serve your soul. You may have to peel away layers of unneeded fears that have been handed down your line for generations. You will free a little bit of your ancestors’ souls with every fierce step you take for yourself.
