Bending WillPower

A reader with Sun square Pluto is searching for ways to accept power.

Dear reader, you already have power  – that is a fact that you need to accept  first and foremost.  Astrologically ANY contact between a luminary and Pluto IS powerful, your square just means you can’t easily accept it.  Yet.
First, it must be said with Plutonian power – it is most important to gain power over oneself, rather than use it to control others. 

Everything on earth has energy and vibrates with frequency.  Earth, rock, tree, bird, water, air, humans.  Earth vibrates slower, yet is very much energetically alive.
For instance, the sky above me just broke with lightning and rain, negative ions are in the air.  Use every opportunity you can to work with the natural earth forces around you – I just opened my door to bring more ions inside.  This ‘invisible’ energy is at work in and all around us.  If you want to tap it, and strengthen it, I will help.

This may seem obvious, but keep your physical body healthy.  Eat food that is natural, organic – avoid foods that are hard for your body to digest, as this uses more energy.  Hydrate often, keep your electrolytes replenished, exercise.  Be disciplined, restraint is actually quite freeing.  Find your Saturn and work it.

Mitakuye Oyasin.  We are all related.  Know your inherent worth.  You exist.  You are vital.  Still and focus on the energy of your own breath, heart and life coursing through you.  You are an intersection on the web of life.

:::::::::::::::::

We are all sparks of creation.  To bring the spark to a blaze, think of a moment in your life you were happiest.  Yes, you are going to create your Patronus.  Though be aware this is an Edgar Cayce reference source I am using.  Potter or Cayce – it works !

1. Imagine your happy event – identify what made it special – precisely what about the event  represents your highest spiritual joy and values ?  Got it ?  Make a small phrase to describe it.  This will be your ‘charm’, your ‘mantra’.  This is your thought, your moment crystallized into pure positive energy.  When you feel depleted, speak this phrase while imagining the moment that led you to choose it – feel the power behind the words, the emotion you are tapping when you say it aloud.

Thought + voice + positive intention = powerful energy raised

2.  The nature of energy is to move.
—-Keep the energy moving in your living environment.  Practice living simply.
 De-clutter, clean often.  Use scent, sound, water and fire to increase and clear the energy and keep it flowing in your home.
—-Keep the energy moving in your body through movement, exercise.
—-Keep the energy moving in your mind.  Read, do puzzles, learn new skills, approaches.  Take a different route, use your non-dominant hand to write or draw.

3.   Own your energy center.
—-You are in charge  of your charge.  Positive or negative, you raise the energy, or dampen it.  Energy by itself is neutral.  How you feel about it gives it charge – the human heart is electric.  Sun rules Leo, rules the heart – the emotional center of the human body. 
Where the thoughts and feelings go, energy flows.

The body is a miraculous thing – heart transplant patients report literally a ‘change of heart’ : attitudes, feelings and identity merges with another spirit – the heart donor.  See how powerful we are ?  Amazing physical creatures.  We are spirit manifested into matter.  haha in a typo I wrote spit – but spit has power too !  My mother-in-law always spit on her bait to bring fish.  When I am in the woods without a proper offering, I will say a blessing and spit.  True.

Anyway, think how heartbreak feels, it is an ache in the chest – our spirit (Sun) is weakened.  Sun square Pluto is a call for change in desires of some kind.  Pluto forces a change of heart, in some way – only you know how Sun square Pluto person  – you are being forced to change on a soul deep level.  You are metamorphosis manifest. 
I feel for you, I have Sun conjunct Uranus Pluto; Pluto trine Moon; eighth house Venus conj Jupiter in Leo (Sun rules).  Giant Neptuner in Scorpio.  I get it.  I totally get it.

Sun (positive) in square to Pluto (negative) means you need to increase your awareness of your own inherent power.  Sun is light, Pluto is dark – find your balance.  Focus your awareness on the dark within.  See it and own it.  Own both the light and the dark.  Life is both.

You choose where you want to dwell – to accept your power, Sun square Pluto, find your center.   Ground yourself.  Pay attention to your larger surroundings, (your place in the web) then focus on yourself.  Your breathing, your blood pulsing, your heart.  Go micro web, see ?  Find those electro-magnetic intersections on your web of life within as well.

Focus on, feel out, and define your bodies in space:
electrical, physical
emotional
etheric
thought
spiritual

Know who, where and when you are regardless of changing circumstances.  Be in your own place of power.  This is a daily thing, by the way – keep at it.  Live your life as a walking talking prayer to raising your power – intentions set  – locked and loaded – to metamorphose your inner tension between light and dark into personal power in a healthy way.

Be aware of course, we are in Uranus square Pluto times, we will all likely have to lock and re-load often, as times and circumstances are changing rapidly.   As circumstances change, so will directions and intentions – stay focused, light on your feet, be ready to bob and weave…

This is how you will bend power to your will – and in the end find your will power.
