Moon Pluto from TMA

I enjoy my subscription to Mountain Astrologer very much, the articles are thoughtful and rich in detail and very satisfying for people who have a cursory understanding of astrology and very satisfying for those who have a more in depth knowledge.

If you don't have a subscription to the printed magazine you can sign up for their cyber edition and you can also check out bonus articles on their website HERE

Currently there is a terrific article written by Alex Miller all about the Pluto Moon relationship that is very  pronounced for the next 19 months.    The moon will pass in front of Pluto which has not happened since 1935.   Very interesting piece.   Give it a read.  You will find the whole article at the link.

There is currently a rare astronomical event that may have dramatic astrological significance, and which has not been receiving as much attention as it should — the series of occultations of Pluto by the Moon. Beginning in April 2012, the Moon will pass directly in front of Pluto, blocking its energy for no less than 19 consecutive months! Given the fact that this occultation hasn’t happened since 1935, it would appear to be a major event, with some cosmic intent or purpose for the world at large.
Occultations are essentially eclipses, with one celestial body passing in front of another, from our perspective on Earth. As such, they act to emphasize the issues and concerns represented by the occulted body, in much the same way a Solar or Lunar Eclipse does. Most commonly, they involve one of the planets of our system passing in front of a star and blotting out its light. More rarely, the Moon will occult another planet, and the occultation of Pluto is among the least common of these phenomena.

Pluto’s orbital plane is inclined more than 17° from the ecliptic, the apparent path along which most of the solar system’s bodies revolve around the Sun. Since the Moon’s orbit is both extremely erratic, extending far north and south of this plane, and also swift, spending barely two hours at each degree of the zodiac, the chances of these two bodies coming together in such a way as to occupy the same space at the same time, are, quite literally, astronomical. But that this should happen over 19 consecutive months? That’s something you’d definitely need a supercomputer to calculate!

There is so much more to the article and I encourage you to read it.  At the very least go over to Alex's dates that he has laid out.    Especially if you have planets in the cardinal signs at those degrees.

  1. Amazing! Thanks!

  2. Addendum--I question the 1935 occultation: how many times in a row did that happen? Nineteen times over the next year+ is an amazing amount. Have we ever seen anything like this? Wish the author had said more, unless I just brushed past it...
