-Glenn Perry.

“Projections occur when an individual attributes an aspect of his own nature to someone or something outside of himself.”

– from an Introduction to AstroPsychology by Glenn Perry.

Example: You have a fear of the government, but meanwhile you are having a hard time getting in touch with your own inner authority and ability to be structured, ordered, and disciplined.

You are fearing an: “authority out there” but really you are afraid of that part of your own psyche… your own inner authority, your own ability to be disciplined, structured, and organized.

“Garlic is a powerful, natural antibiotic – and it doesn’t kill off our healthy bacteria like drug antibiotics do. Unlike chemical antibiotics, garlic is also an effective antiviral and antifungal – and taking just a few cloves of garlic each day can really speed infections away.”

I had a good energy release of fear tonight. It was hard. Now my tummy is gurgling from the after affects of all that old, stuck energy/emotion being released. We all store energy/emotions in our belly, and sometimes the energy/emotions can be in there for decades.

It’s hard to release an emotion like fear, because it’s well, scary to feel fear, It’s scary, and there’s no getting around that. The only way out is through, and the ego will tell you it will last forever, even though it might only last 10 minutes.

I have learned these emotional release techniques at, and after years of my ego resisting like crazy, I’ve come to the point where I’d rather get this junk out of my body, rather than repressing these old, stuck emotions for another several decades. It’s hard work, but so worth it.

We store emotions in our belly, and some old emotions may have been stuck in there for decades. An upsetting incident can trigger the emotion to come to the surface to be released. The ‘triggers’ can and do change all the time but the emotion remains the same. It comes up to the surface, whether it be anger, fear, hurt etc…However at this point is where many of us go wrong. We oftentimes try to push the emotion back down instead of release it. How we push the emotion back down can be through various techniques such as:

1) Talking about it. (you can’t release emotion through your thoughts, you can only temporarily feel better by talking about them, but the emotions gets repressed again and go back down into the belly, where they will only come back to haunt you when some other incident ‘triggers’ them.

2) Thinking about it. Analyzing, rationalizing, figuring it out, obsessively going over it, thinking the problem away. Again, you can’t release emotions using your thoughts. You can only cover over the emotions with your thoughts. The emotions end up being pushed back down, where they will only come back to haunt you when they get triggered at another time.

3) Eating. That’s why people sometimes reach for comfort food when an emotion gets triggered and comes to the surface. The food in your belly gives you a full, satisfied feeling. We reach for comfort food, and especially carbohydrates because carbohydrates boost serotonin levels, making us feel better temporarily. But that’s the key word, “temporarily”. The emotions are still there, only pushed back down, and they will get triggered on another day, making us yet again, want to reach for the bread, sweets etc. again. That’s why a lot of people with eating issues tend to be have emotional issues.

4) Drinking, smoking, drugs. These act as a temporary analgesic, but again, the emotions do not get released, only pushed back down so we don’t have to deal with them at that particular time.

Humans store pain, and many of us don’t know how to properly release our old, stuck emotions because we aren’t taught how to. These emotional release techniques are the most powerful I’ve ever come across:

Sometimes being forgetful can work in your favor. I put a bunch of chopped up kale in the oven at 400 degree’s with a drizzle of olive oil and sprinkle of salt. After 10 minutes I turned off the oven. Then I forgot about the kale all day. In the evening, I remembered and took the kale out of the oven. It was so super crispy. With kale chips like this, who need doritos? If you want your kale chips crispy, just forget about them all day in the oven.

Love has no pain. Love has no need. It doesn’t seem like that I know. When you’re focused on that person, if there’s pain and need involved, it’s because it’s triggering pain that’s already inside you. They are the focus of your pain, but they are not the cause of it. It’s very counterintuitive I know, because it feels like it’s all about them. But let’s face it, if it wasn’t them, it would be somebody else. Be honest with yourself. When the pain/need gets triggered, use it as an opportunity to feel your feelings and breathe through it, release those emotions. It’s not about them, even though your brain will tell you till kingdom come, that yes, it is about them!

Pluto/Scorpio is the need for Transformation, healing, catharsis, release, purification, cleansing, integrity (integration), death and regeneration, purging, elimination, power, potency, sex, merger, fusion.

The target state of Pluto is one of power or wholeness, though it is a different kind of wholeness from that which Uranus or Neptune seeks. Pluto wants to feel whole inside rather than whole with humanity or nature. The internal wholeness is what we might call integrity- a state of concentrated force within the psyche that results from the psyche being unified.

Integrity occurs when there are no wounds too painful to heal, no repressed memories too frightening to recall, no traumas stuffed away in a state of suspended animation in some dark corner of the mind. If such divisions do exist, Pluto rules the processes of transformation and healing that result- these include the peak experience, catharsis, purging, and cleansing. Pluto also correlates to all the requisite fear and suffering that such painful experiences entail. For Pluto is both death and rebirth.

Although Pluto is not particularly interested in attaining transcendent states of oneness with all life and humanity, it does want to feel united with its immediate environment. This is because one’s local surroundings are the repository of one’s projections, and it is precisely what one projects, i.e., one’s shadow, that creates and uneasy division between self and other. Thus Pluto is associate with power struggles and control issues, for is the shadow contents of consciousness- one’s unhealed wounds- that usually come back to haunt us in the form of a relationship predicament.

If the individual is unwilling to suffer or to change through an encounter with the shadow, then Pluto may manifest in attempts to control or even destroy what has now become the enemy. The less virulent forms of such control are coercion and intimidation, such as extortion, blackmail, kidnapping, and mob rule. The more extreme forms degenerate into paranoia, violence and destruction. Rape, murder, terrorism, and tyranny are all Plutonic.

To the extent that the shadow is projected, one suffers fear and disempowerment. If the individual overidentifies with the Pluto component of consciousness, he or she will become possessed by the shadow and metamorphose into that which is feared. The good Dr. Jeckyl becomes the bad Mr. Hyde. It is the individual’s attempt to resolve his fear that actually causes him to fall into his shadow, for one can see in the phenomenon a belated attempt at integration. Shadow states usually involve some kind of criminal or evil act, underworld association, compulsion, perversion, or subversion.

Anyone who is engaged with the shadow or underworld elements of society is performing a Pluto function. This includes people working in the healing professions- doctors, therapists, social workers- as well as people who descend into the underworld to confront the shadow directly. Examples include police detectives, FBI agents, CIA operatives, vigilantes, spies, infiltrators, undercover agents, informers, investigators, and all other’s involved with fighting evil.

Other manifestations of Pluto involve sexuality, erotic encounters, and feelings of passionate intensity. Passion seems to be what humans feel when they are about to be transformed by an experience with the unknown. Sexual arousal and anxiety entail common physiological responses. “Do or die” extremism is also Plutonic, as occurs when individuals are willing to die for their convictions.”

“Mars/Aries is the need for Survival, life, being, freedom, liberty, action, doing, autonomy, independence, immediate gratification, activity, movement.

The goal state of Mars is pure aliveness, the joy of being alive. What is seeks to avoid is deadness, which generally means any threat to it’s survival. For example, Mars would experience lack of freedom or lack of movement as a life threatening condition. Above all else Mars needs to keep moving. Corollary states are vitality, decisiveness, impetuousness, impulsiveness, omnipotence (no sense of limits), recklessness, anger, frustration (if thwarted), and aggression. Physical manifestations of Mars energy include new enterprises or projects, adventures, accidents, fights, violence, quarrels, headaches, high blood pressure, mechanical ability, engineering skills, work with tools or cutting instruments, and any “do it yourself” type work.”
