Thoughts On The Impending Pluto Station October 11th 2023 - Followed By The 20-Year Transit Of Pluto In Aquarius

The "dwarf planet" of astronomy has lost none of its potency in the lore of astrology.
Already Pluto has dipped a toe in Aquarian waters before slowing, then stationing, and then doing the Moonwalk back into Capricorn.
That Moonwalk is slowing down, and on October 11th, 2023, Pluto will "station" direct, and start moving forward again, taking until January of 2024 to re-walk forward into Aquarius, where it will transit over twenty years.
Given that I have six planets in Aquarius in my natal chart, neither I nor my fellow Super Aquarian tribe are looking forward to this tank-roll of the ruler of Hades over each planet in our stellium, one-by-one over the next two decades.
One of the other effects I'm feeling at the moment is a call to gather in a deeper, more meticulous understanding of astrology. I'm using an "immersion" tactic, by listening to audiobooks on the topic on those long, long drives through my personal earthly representation of hades on Earth.
Mythologically, traveling through Hades is often its own sort of hero's journey. There are many characters who travel through Hades and return to Earth deeply transformed. I feel like the driving I'm doing through the high desert has already been transformative on multiple levels, and the fun is just beginning.
Strangely enough, the high desert has its own stark, ethereal form of beauty. I actually find that I love it to some degree, thought not always why I am traversing it. We're talking long, long drives here. My Google timeline showed that I drove over 5,800 miles in August alone. Maybe 250 of those miles were for personal reasons on the weekends.
One always finds amazing "dead things" in the desert, from ghost towns and ghost cars, to toy dinosaurs and "semi-dead" historic highways like old Route 66.
I'll leave these musings with a few pictures I took along the 50,000 miles plus I have traveled in this Plutonian landscape, and the last one is what I hope this isn't, unless we get a better one in return.
