Weekly Horoscopes – Sun in Libra and Pluto Direct – ‘Kill Your Heroes’

Weekly Horoscopes – Sun in Libra and Pluto Direct – ‘Kill Your Heroes’

The star of individuality and action, the Sun, has moved into Libra, the sign of partnership, justice, and harmony. Unfamiliar territory for the self-focused Sun, but integration of opposites is the name of the Libran game.

In the northern hemisphere, the equinox and beginning of Libra season heralds the start of autumn, the time when the day is split into perfect halves. Libra straddles day and night, masculine and feminine, justice and mercy.

Libra’s sigil is a setting sun, perfectly balanced, representing the Sun’s zodiacal descent into the underworld. And meanwhile, this week, the king of the underworld, Pluto — the planetary ruler of death, transformation, and rebirth — goes direct after a five-month retrograde.

Pluto is ruthless. He rips out foundations where he sees cracks. He yanks skeletons out of closets and performs emotional autopsies. During this retrograde, each of us underwent an internal excavation — Pluto forced us to dig past the shiny surface of things and get to the truth of a crucial and very likely ignored aspect of our lives.

He rules the “shadow,” the unacknowledged aspects of ourselves that we despise — things like greed, rage, lust, temptation, addiction. Things common to all humans, yet somehow reviled and rejected by the vast majority.

Pluto calls bullshit.

We try to forget the sins of ourselves the way we do our heroes and artists — attempting to ignore the real, deep flaws of people like Ghandi, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., John Lennon.

“Kill your heroes” is a philosophical phrase not meaning, “these people aren’t heroes” or that they deserve to die — it means that we should treat them as what they are: human beings. We must “kill” the glorified image we have of them, and recognize that they have challenges, weaknesses, and desires like we all do.

And we should treat ourselves and each other with the same humility and compassion — Libra dares to imagine what could happen if such a daring (r)evolution took place. If we each allowed each other some grace as we navigated our challenges, or even offered support or compassion, transformation would be inevitable. What sort of collective power could we generate?

As he goes direct, Pluto is making use of the Sun’s descent, putting him to work as a lamp in his basement interrogation room. The Libra Sun and Pluto are playing good cop/bad cop — they have different methods, but they both want the truth. Justice prevails, and confessing your “crimes,” if only to yourself, brings the chance for redemption and rebirth.

What we acknowledge, we can affect. Pluto offers us access to our power. Libra balances light and shadow, accepts that two truths can exist at once, and knows a descent is just the precursor to another rise. It’s time to take in the horizon with new eyes. A rebirth is at hand.

If you left the planet today, what would be your legacy, Aries? What kind of reputation are you establishing for yourself? Pluto is asking the tough questions in your House of Career and Destiny, a potent location for the planetary ruler of power and control. How do you wield yours?

You may be wrestling with some power dynamics this week, particularly in your closest one-on-one relationships, as the Sun has entered your House of Partnerships. You tend to be pretty self-focused and driven by nature, and with Pluto resurging in your House of Ambition, it’s important to remember to honor your support system now.

Sudden evolutions and promotions are likely in the realm of your career once Pluto goes direct, and you could also find yourself under tremendous pressure. Your stars are asking you to lean into change and growth rather than resisting it — a balance can be achieved when it comes to reaching your personal goals while giving and receiving great support. Your popularity is forecast to increase!

Your interests, beliefs, and perspective have undergone a pretty intense evaluation over the last few months, Taurus, and now it’s time to integrate your newfound knowledge into your daily practices. Pluto goes direct in your House of Journeys and Philosophy this week, indicating that you’ve reviewed and likely broadened your way of thinking recently, after examining the way your beliefs have created your experience.

And with the star of individuality and action, the Sun, lighting up your House of Work and Routine, this week is an ideal time for you to act on what you have learned. Whatever you have awakened to, whatever you have learned from experience, now is the time to make it part of your daily habits. Increased efficiency is forecast — essentially, you’re separating the wheat from the chaff when it comes to what you think about and what you do every single day. You may have come to a realization about your habits after they were challenged in a big way, and find yourself making big changes as a result.

As Boris Pasternak put it in “Doctor Zhivago,” “The great majority of us are required to live a life constant, systematic duplicity. Your health is bound to be affected if, day after day, you say the opposite of what you feel, if you grovel before what you dislike and rejoice at what brings you nothing but misfortune. Our nervous system isn’t just a fiction, it’s a part of our physical body, and our soul exists in space and is inside us, like the teeth in our mouth. It can’t be forever violated with impunity.”

This week, live your ideals to live a more ideal life!

This week is all about tapping into your desires shamelessly, Gemini! Sounds like a good deal, eh? With the Sun lighting up your House of Creativity, Romance, and Fun, your inner child is demanding center stage; meanwhile, the ruler of power and transformation, Pluto, is renovating your House of Intimacy and the Other, unearthing hidden urges and asking if they belong in the “keep” or “throw away” pile.

This is quite a powerful planetary arrangement, because if you can actually acknowledge even the most taboo of your desires (after all the House of Intimacy is less politely known as the House of Sex, Death, and Other People’s Money), you actually have the chance to indulge. On the other hand, if you try anything subversive or sketchy when it comes to getting what you want, Pluto will ensure that you pay for it. Secrets are meant to be revealed now, so it’s better to fully express yourself than try to pull subtle strings.

There is excellent potential for fun, transformation, and all kinds of upgrades in your stars — your creativity and personal expression are forecast to bring you rewards when you are honest with yourself and others. Acknowledge what you want and go for it with gusto — following your bliss shamelessly is forecast to bring success!

The star of personality and action, the Sun, has entered your House of Home and Family, lighting up issues around your literal living space and the people with whom you share it. A sense of trust, security, and sanctuary are extra important to you, this week.

Meanwhile, the intense interrogator, Pluto, is going direct in your House of Partnerships, indicating that you’ve learned a definitive lesson about your one-on-one interactions, perhaps after a few revisits and revisions. The way you balance your needs and the needs of your closest loved ones has been highlighted, and now it would benefit you to make conscious efforts to evolve this area of your life. Healthier, deeper, and more intimate relationships will be your reward.

Power plays and manipulations in particular are revealed by your stars — honesty is imperative now, first with yourself, then with your loved ones, when it comes to feeling safe and secure. Be willing to acknowledge where you may have been clingy or cold as a response to not getting you needs met, and where partners or family members may have played out their own unhealthy patterns rather than using their authentic power. Owning yourself in full, and sharing that with the people you love, gives them permission to do the same. You can build yourself a real stronghold this week, Cancer, one that protects and invites true allies. First within, then without.

Exciting opportunities and invitations could get lost in the shuffle this week if you’re not careful!

Fortunately for you, you might just get the sliiiightest bit obsessed by the idea of a new daily regime to address this, since potent Pluto has done a thorough renovation in your House of Work and Routine over the last five months, revealing self-sabotaging habits or unhealthy practices that delayed or derailed you. Getting real with yourself about what’s working and not working for you will allow you to transform the sort of access and opportunities you receive.

Whether you’ve been forced to check your unhealthy eating or exercise habits, curb an addiction, or address a tendency to procrastinate on important priorities, an important adjustment is being made when it comes to your daily routine.
