My friend, Satori, is a Pisces born in the sixties with the Pluto Uranus conjunction in Virgo opposing her Sun. With Uranus transiting Pisces, I have been witnessing her liberation and kickin’ it up a gear whenever I think I can.
“Well I think you should check out some of this stuff that was born when you were. The art, I mean. The creative stuff. And I mean get the purest stuff you can find. Like Leonard Cohen’s poetry from the era. It’s very potent. He writes about taboo sex. He writes this stuff and he does not screw around. He puts it right on the paper, the energy of your generation in just a very few words. And for me it’s one thing. For you it would be another, but I do think it would impact you, because it is you. The poems were born when you were born and you share something with them.”
“Yeah. So I am getting a lot out of this. Because the poems from this certain era and the astrology is very clear. It’s the sixties and the sexual (Pluto) revolution (Uranus). We have the pill so people can screw each other’s brains out and they do. And he’s writing about the shadow much of the time. You know. This is not peace and love and hippies. This is not the Grateful Dead. This is Cohen, and though it interests me on other levels one of the things that attracts me is that this stuff was written at this specific time. A very charged time.”
“So then he goes and lives on a mountain. He goes Buddhist… he does whatever he does and he’s not writing this stuff now, forty years later.” I laughed. “But good thing he wrote it then. Very good thing, because now we have it and we can read it.”
