“Today, science takes a great leap observing the Pluto system up close and flying into a new frontier that will help us better understand the origins of the solar system.” John Grunsfeld, NASA.
I don’t know if you’ve seen the amazing picture of Pluto from the NASA New Horizons spacecraft…but here it is!
The New Horizons spacecraft took a decade long journey through our solar system to bring this image to us. And call me crazy, but when I first glimpsed it, what stood out to me was the image of a heart! It’s at the bottom right of the orb...can you see it?
Pluto was discovered 85 years ago, back in 1930. In scientific/astronomy circles, Pluto has had a tough go the last few years, being demoted from a planet to a dwarf planet! But in the astrology world, Pluto's status is unchanged, remaining as one of the 10 planets used in astrological interpretation and forecasting.
Pluto is the ruling planet for Scorpio, and signifies death, rebirth and transformation. It is currently orbiting the sign of Capricorn, and is a key indicator of the major transformation happening now on our planet; the death and rebirth of old outworn structures that no longer serve us or the future of the Earth.
I don't believe its a coincidence that Pluto is revealing it's dark, mysterious presence to us now, at a time when our world is experiencing so much transformation. (Perhaps, with these amazing pics, astronomers will consider reinstating it back to Planet status #BringPlutoBack!) And as Pluto reveals itself, in it's first cosmic selfie, it does so with a heart! Something to ponder...
Pluto's mantra: Life is a mystery! Embrace the unknown!
