WE ARE EMBARKING on one of the steepest sections of this "final ascent" that is the last four months of 2021. This is a highly volcanic period, both literally and symbolically. The next six to eight weeks will be profoundly pivotal and life-changing, for individuals and for the global community.

The primary influence we're working with throughout this time is the disruptive and eruptive Pluto-Eris square. This aspect was exact on August 27 and will perfect for the fifth and final time on October 8.

Pluto is said to "rule" viruses, which strengthens our belief that the Pluto-Eris square is closely involved in our pandemic experience. But it is in exploring the personal and social effects of this hard aspect that we gain a better understanding of its higher purposes.

TRANSITING PLUTO acts somewhat like a psychotherapist when it works with us. It digs deep into our psyches, revealing emotions and behaviors that have been running us from behind the scenes. The purpose of this often-uncomfortable process is to bring disempowering patterns into our awareness so that they no longer control us.

Meanwhile, transiting Eris draws our attention to...
