I think the image above is an appropriate one for the experience of transiting Saturn conjunct natal Pluto in the Second House.
It is the rigour arising when past foundations (Saturn, the body) meet with unrelenting, transforming force (Pluto).
In this case, my means of earning money, but also my self-worth - both Second House issues - are being warped-unto-breaking when combined with the Pluto principle - death and rebirth, (and perhaps hidden resources) - which lurks there natally.
The previous modes of income and their (admittedly scant) corollary - my self value - are being slowly put to death, and if I am wise, I will welcome and embrace this process, because what is dying is outmoded and toxic views of what it means to be valuable.
Not to mention, what counts - and what is possible - as a viable means of income.
Those of you who have followed the (intermittent) ramblings of this blog, will know that such issues are nothing new for me, but they have been brought (I hope) to their peak by the unrelenting intensity of this transit.
Throw in transiting Saturn opposing natal Venus (in the Eighth), squaring natal Saturn (in the Eleventh) and the near-exact Pluto square (Fifth to Second) and you have a failure-is-not-an-option scenario that requires a fair bit of stamina to withstand.
But it also adds a tremendous impetus to commit to a new course when it comes to money-making and a fresh perspective from which to view myself.
Which is to say, I'm being forced to consider: where does one draw their worth, if not from their accomplishments, their status, their revenue...?
While there are days when I long to simply find the off button, I know that I'm going to emerge far, far stronger and healthier from this process, and I am grateful for many things I had taken for granted at other, less-taxing times.
All is well, no matter what.
