Astrology, Death and Disillusionment

Astrology, Death and Disillusionment

I’m pissed, disillusioned and a little sad. I have thought and thought about writing this but I need to release it and give my thoughts. A well known Astrologer has twice made statements that I feel to be irresponsible and I feel the need to state how I would handle it. The first was that during a Pluto transit of the first house you could die. Well I have Pluto transiting my first house. Admittedly it’s there until I am 74 but I love my life and like the thought that I might be around for longer if I’m fit and healthy. But the words stuck. The second was that Pluto in the eighth house means that a partner will die. I also have Pluto in the eighth house. Now, I am not afraid of death. It’s a certainty for all of us until some scientist manages to come up with the secret to everlasting life. Which I am not sure I would even want anyway. It’s also obvious that many of us will have partners that die. Kind of a 50/50 chance that the partner will go first right? Okay mathematicians don’t bite me. There may be a statistic that proves which partner is likely to go first. But you get the picture! It’s my belief that making that flippant a statement is not the thing to do in a public forum or a personal reading. In a debate amongst astrologers it may be okay to discuss things like this as a possibility. Because that’s all they are. Pluto is deeper than that. I really don’t want to...
