When it costs more than I can afford,
And I'm looking for the exit door,
Life may be forcing me to find,
More in me to "tow the line."
In Evolutionary/New Paradigm astrology, Pluto and Scorpio symbolize the force of evolution. Evolution can be nasty, hard business. It takes us up and out of our comfort zone, the known, familiar, power and control that we build up and constantly humbles us by showing us there is always more. Somebody or something that we can't control, that can hurt us, that we can't figure out, the mystery of Life and Death and more.
Yet, just as the predator helps the prey evolve, all external sources that have the power to destroy us simultaneously are our greatest teachers. They force us to summon within ourselves ever deeper and stronger desires, passion, and will to survive and potentially thrive. To "tow the line," means to pull our weight or more, like tugboats towing a barge.
While battling forces beyond our control is not the only way to evolve, sadly enough, we can be a complacent species content with mediocrity sometimes to the point of complacency and resistance to evolving. The infinite intelligence of the universe measures out the exact amount of pain necessary to wake us to the deeper intention of our life in these bodies. While it often appears unfair, unjust, and cruel, in humbled awareness of the greater whole, it can be seen as perfect. May you experience the humbled awareness that allows you to see that perfection!
