Pluto square Sun and blog hiatus – I’m back (sort of)

You might or might not have noticed the complete lack of updates on this site since June, a time frame that coincided with the second peak of the transit of Pluto to my Libra Sun. Regrettably, instead of writing a blog post, I simply stated my intention of taking a break with a post on Aeternalight Astrology’s Facebook page, which resulted in, well, most of you being unaware of the reason behind my silence, and quite a few of you asking me if I was ok.

The symbol of the Cornucopia, or “horn of plenty”, which – among other things – has come to be recognized as a symbol for Thanksgiving holiday, has close mythological ties with the figure of Zeus, the Greek counterpart of Jupiter. A symbol of fortune and plenty in the Western world, it’s mostly pictured as a woven, horn-shaped basket, overflowing with an abundance of produce; this iconography originated in classical antiquity, more precisely in an ancient myth narrating of the birth and nurturance of the infant Zeus himself.

The expression “internalized energy” is often overused when talking about retrograde planets, to the point that it turned into somewhat of a catchphrase which might mean everything and nothing at the same time.
However, the actual intrinsic value hidden in this formula makes it impossible to dismiss it altogether; a deeper exploration of its meaning is necessary in order to understand the upcoming retrograde station of Neptune, happening on June 14, at 12° Pisces.

In a chemical reaction, two reactants contact each other, the bonds between their atoms break, and atoms themselves rearrange, forming new bonds in order to originate a different substance. No atoms are destroyed or created anew in the process; there is a shift, a mysterious transformation of what was once clear and definite, into something else.

Your Questions – Is Scorpio Mars the Problem?

Hey, I’ve been really struggling with my Mars in Scorpio. I feel insane unable to love or let go sexually, or emotionally, I drop people even when I care about them and I don’t know why. I’m never satisfied sexually, and I’ve never trusted anyone. I’ve had sex once and the moment I did I didn’t want them anymore which I know is more normal for guys but I’m a girl. My relationships never last longer than 3 months and I’m always the one to end them, but once I’m done with one relationship I somehow find myself in another. I seem very dominant but submissive/passive people are not my type.
