“Transformation literally means going beyond your form.”
Welcome to the Pluto analysis! I am still comparing the Natal & Draconic charts of Marc Bolan in this article, and hope that you will take the opportunity to investigate the placements in your own Natal/Draconic chart comparisons…
The Draconic chart denotes the soul’s inner callings in this lifetime, whilst also pointing to previous incarnations and traits. The Natal is the ‘you’ in this lifetime, what you are like on an outer level, to the world. Comparing the two may bring insights previously unseen, especially where the two charts ‘join’ by aspect.
On to the transformative Pluto, we see that in Marc Bolan’s chart, his Natal Pluto is conjunct the Draconic Neptune. A potent mix of two great planetary characters…how would this play out?
It goes without saying that Pluto comes with tremendous transformative, regenerative resolves, and in the Natal 8th house, it is even more potent. The taboo is the stuff of life for these individuals. ‘Dirty sweet’…to coin a Marc Bolan song phrase!
Couple that with the Draconic Neptune, another potent astrological player, but more nebulous, creative and dreamy…what can we deduce?
That the outer Natal interest in transformation/taboo elements will be somewhat nebulous/esoteric too…and there is, of course, the added penchant for drugs with Neptune. All of this activity taking place in Leo, the sign of so many leaders in all walks of life, including rock bands!
It is clear that the heady mix of the need for transformation (Natal Pluto in the 8th), coupled with a ‘soul calling’ of wanting to taste the nebulous/esoteric in a career sense (Draconic Neptune in the 10th)…all this happening in Leo, the stereotypical showman of the Zodiac…it all points to rock star tendencies, cue Marc Bolan!
Transformation (Pluto) coming through creativity (Neptune), in its highest presentation…and on the darker rock star side, plunging the depths (Pluto) of nebulous (Neptune) confusion through the vehicle of drugs and delusion.
If transformation does indeed mean going beyond your form as Wayne Dyer attested in the opening quote of this article, it is clear that Marc Bolan made use of the transformative Plutonic/Neptunian energy in his music… morphing into an era icon…he certainly helped to transform the 70’s music scene.
Until next time – your comments and thoughts are always welcome, secretly.
