Pluto is the planet of ordeals and the transformations that arise from them. Pluto says that you can’t get to where you want to go without going through hell and high water first. Oftentimes this is painful and gut-wrenching — except when there’s a trine. Trines create harmonious energies between planets, and the Sun/Pluto trine on Sept. 3 shows that the circumstances surrounding your personal evolution will be much more positive and constructive. Instead of a meltdown, you will experience a step up — almost as if you’ve paid your dues (or done your penance) and are now free to claim that prize that always remained out of reach. After months of struggle and hardship, you are finally coming into your own.
