Pluto, planet of creative destruction, is stationary now and preparing to change direction.  While it is stationary, its influence is at its most intense.  Although the New Moon in Libra is still affecting us, we will soon be moving into Scorpio season – the season ruled by Mars and Pluto.  I thought this poem would give us a good head start in understanding Pluto’s model of creation and destruction. I don’t believe it can be understood with logic – instead we must feel it and allow the understanding to sink into our thoughts and intentions like morning dew. 

When you break something up, you create things.
When you create something, you destroy things.
Material things have no creation or destruction.
Ultimately these concepts connect as one.

Only the enlightened know that they connect as one,
So instead of debating this with your preconceptions,
Approach it in an ordinary way.

Those with this ordinary approach, simply apply the idea.
Those who apply it, connect with it.
Those who connect with it, attain it.
This easily attained understanding is not far off.


Chuang Tzu, – From: The True Tao
