JWG's PLANETARY METHOD OF CHART INTERPRETATION(A) Pluto Pisces 3rd: Types of desires the Soul had in specific prior lives the evolutionary necessity and intentions of which have direct bearing on the current life.
“The Genius of the Human Mind”
In past lives the Soul had developed the mind and intellect in order to understand the phenomenal world by means of a collection of a vast array of endless new “observable” facts, data, information, evidence, details and proofs; naming, identifying, designating, cataloguing, sorting, grading and classifying data; developing written communication, manuscripts, texts, collected works, masterpieces; devouring copious quantities of books; seeking variety and diversity in a multiplicity of endeavours; and engaging in relationships and circumstances in the environment as a messenger, disseminator and communicator. The Soul was programmed to be constantly and intensely curious, restless, impatient, nervous, impulsive, reactionary, rational, logical and intelligent. All of these traits and activities based on the intellectual construction of the ordering of reality formed a structure of “intellectual security” which facilitated adjustments through the accumulation of more and more facts gathered from the environment.
In the Soul’s karmic history it desired to experience the dissolution and sublimation of its identification with the personal ego by diligently engaging itself in a widespread, far-reaching, extensive, creative, educational, cultural project, the knowledge and information of which would assist the world (the collective of Souls) and transcend time and space. The Soul had immersed itself in a search for ultimate meaning and fulfillment based on the information it had gathered, however, the Soul was dealing with weariness, exhaustion or disillusionment. The inner creation of dreams, fantasies, illusions and delusions had permeated his thought patterns, assertions and transcendental beliefs. Because of a propensity for cycles of dissolution of the Soul’s identification with its mental structures generating loss of control, subconscious insecurities, fears, phobias, mental confusion, disorientation and meaninglessness, the Soul anchored itself to a known and familiar function. This function or symbol describes the iconic researcher, ingenious collector, deep imaginative thinker, inspirational communicator, and the writer writing with conviction, obsessively played out in an attempt to control its life, maintain a sense of order, and give it a tangible purpose (3rd stage Individuated).
The Soul was able to connect left-brain ‘rational’ facts, data, information, logic and reasoning with right-brain ‘non-rational’ intuition, creativity, insight, imagination and mysticism. Brain power, wit and intelligence combined with an all-knowing intuition, inductive thought, inspiration and deeply felt spirituality created open-mindedness, adaptability, but also inconsistency and confusion (lost in a sea of information). The Soul had the capacity to arrive at an holistic understanding by interpreting multiple viewpoints and systems of the whole of life/creation, unifying them through reasoning and logic, and then using the information for a collective application. This karmic signature also highlighted the simultaneously occurring and co-equal desires existing within the Soul. When separating desires were satisfied, they were immediately followed by a sense of dissatisfaction (Scorpio) mirroring the ultimate desire to return to Source.
Mercury (and NN of Mercury) last phase conj Pluto, all ruled by Neptune Sag 12th, ruled by Jupiter Pisces 3rd; Mercury (ruler of PPP) first qtr squ Neptune – These aspects emphasize the Soul intention to culminate a whole cycle of evolution (12th); transition from one phase to another (crisis in action) through resistance, insecurity and fear of the unknown; establish mental structures relative to surrendering to a Higher Will (collective unconscious); and dissolve any karmic remnants that remain in the Soul.
Neptune (conj Saturn) last qtr squ Pluto – This (generational) crisis in consciousness/belief describes facing the unknown, the totality, through the dissolution of self as ego; playing an integral role in the collective evolution of spirituality either through inspiration or delusion; dissolving the old reality or social order (Saturn) and opening humanity’s eyes to the “reality” of our world.
SN of Jupiter Cap 1st (ruled by Saturn Sag 12th); Jupiter Aries 3rd (ruled by Mars) first phase conj Pluto; NN Jupiter 29 deg Gemini 7th (ruled by Mercury) – The Soul sought new philosophical beliefs by instinctually asserting itself. The de facto oppositional signature of Jupiter/3rd was determined by the Soul to integrate and synthesize opposites. The Soul instinctively sought new ways of understanding Natural Laws, the natural truth of diversity, and the relativity of all things. In order for the philosophical structures to evolve by way of breaking new ground and taking completely new directions, it was necessary to culminate a whole cycle (NN Jupiter) whereby information had been collected through interactions and relationships with a variety of other Souls the dynamics of which had become unbalanced.
Mars Libra 10th ruling Jupiter – The Soul was balancing extremities associated with past life parental, societal and cultural conditioning patterns. This meant ceasing to believe old sources of information, untruths and half-truths and, having achieved the required social humility and purification (Mars/Pluto full phase), undertaking a search alone (Venus Aries ruler of SN) for new information in a self-determined fashion. Venus (ruler of SN) trine Saturn/Neptune; Venus inconj NN – It was time to integrate the new evolutionary impulse on behalf of the collective of Souls, by humbly providing a service for humanity, and trusting in a higher power to usher in a new spiritual and social order. (B) South Node Leo 5th
– The types of egocentric structures that the Soul has necessarily created in order to consciously actualize the evolutionary desires or intentions which preceded the current life. The Soul Node is the conscious component that the Soul generates or creates to actualize the desires that are intrinsic to the Soul itself.
Over a series of prior lives, the Soul created egocentric structures or personalities that could actualize the Soul’s intention through creativity, will, power, self-importance and a sense of special destiny. Therefore, in the current life the Soul created a very specific egocentric personality programmed with specific life conditions, meetings with key people, affluent economic conditions, race, culture, as well as every other area of life exactly according to what the Soul needed to evolve beyond (progressively eliminate, culminate or exhaust) the past life desires.
In order for the Soul to attract to itself the information that it needed, it needed to develop an intense focus, to take charge of its life, apply personal energy, and create a special purpose that would attract to itself all the love, attention and acceptance that it craved, as well as creating a sense of self-value and self-esteem (Venus). The pattern or symbol of the creative principle included the use of the intellect, imagination, creative thought, creative writing, as well as the incorporation of inspirational transcendental beliefs. The Soul experienced an inner sense of ultimate meaning and fulfillment by sharing the information it had gathered about the environment with others. It shone its light of creative self-expression and personal self-actualization through a generous, warm, kind-hearted, dignified and charismatic personality thereby inspiring, motivating, and stimulating others with thought-provoking ideas and writings. It is possible that the creation of many lifetimes of fame, renown, or being in the limelight could have lead to the Soul becoming an iconic symbol or developing a God-complex.
In the Soul’s prior lives it desired to create inner value systems (self-worth, financial) while being rooted to a productive special purpose. The Soul’s strong instincts for survival, procreation, sensuality, sexuality, self-preservation, regeneration and self-sustainment were reflected in the larger order of Nature as the ongoing preservation of the species. Past lives spent in isolation, study, contemplation and withdrawal facilitated a sharp intellectual focus on the Soul’s special purpose, as well as an all-encompassing love and appreciation for the beauty and awesomeness of Nature.

– Facilitates the SN egocentric structures
The Soul’s creation of the personality describing the iconic collector/communicator with a special purpose in the natural world was facilitated by strong instinctive energies, strong will, self-focus, courage, leadership, and a need for freedom and independence to explore the new territory. The Soul was naturally centred in itself through a concentrated self-awareness, quite stubborn and dogmatic in its thinking and communication patterns, tended to ask and answer its own questions, and created intellectual confrontations with others (Aries natural trine to the 5th house, Venus naturally ruling Taurus). Furthermore, the Soul found it difficult to really listen to others because it had been intent on making its own points, as well as living past lives in isolation with everything revolving around itself. The desire to complete itself through a natural state of ‘becoming’ would expose a subconscious insecurity or lack of confidence (Venus conj IC) that reflected the toppling of the mental structures. However, this process motivated a driving need or instinctual urge to explore and discover more about itself and the world through the qualities of courage and audacity to break the new ground.(D) PPP Virgo 9th
– The current life intention of the Soul to evolve beyond the past life dynamics that it has already realized.
The Soul has a fixed vision (Taurus), a self-centred nature (Leo), and tends to ask and answer its own questions to generate self-value and self-love (Venus Aries 3rd). Its inner messages are narcissistically geared toward self. In order for the Soul to progress through the 3rd stage Individuated, the information that the Soul has been collecting for its special purpose needs to reach a wider audience, humanity, the collective. The Soul programmed necessary confrontations with people who were able to penetrate (Pluto) to the weakest link in the Soul’s highly developed intellectual structure. Thus the whole intellectual structure would collapse or topple (Leo) inducing the 9th house evolutionary intention to develop the right brain intuitive nature that reveals the deeper universal Natural Laws underlying the facts that the Soul has been collecting, and creating a composite, holistic view. In this way the Soul began to open up to deeper relationships with others (eg teachers, associates, groups, NN Scorpio) who represented what the Soul was lacking, thus mastering its intellectual structures, undertaking systematic inquiries into the data collected, communicating intuitive insights through rational language, synthesizing and classifying the knowledge, thereby transforming others (humanity).
The Soul was learning how to align with Natural Laws in order to understand them, not dominate or distort them, and to give a higher purpose for the information that the Soul had been collecting. In its travels far and wide to new shores, drawing on its past lives spent in isolation studying Nature, the interaction with new environments stimulated the senses (Taurus) and the mental structures (3rd) of natural observation (Virgo) in a new way (Aries). The transcendental belief system adopted by the Soul necessitated a deeper, sharper focus on the inner dynamics in order to effect adjustments and purifications of the egocentric structures making it possible to move out of the narcissistic, isolationist tendency toward benefiting others through human service. The Soul carrying Christian guilt, religious orthodoxy, and self-doubt would experience cycles of deep crisis mirroring the inner state of the Soul, enforcing self-improvements such as the grounding effects of work, seeing reality for what it is, studying systems as a whole, and bringing all the parts together. (E) North Node Scorpio 11th
– Conscious actualization of the PPP, the current life evolutionary intentions.
Here the Soul is learning how to detach from the pyramid structure of its inner reality by linking its purpose to a socially relevant function. The Soul is liberating from traumatic experiences where it is not acknowledged as special, and realizing that it is merely a channel of universal creativity. The Soul is breaking free from conditioning patterns of past lives by no longer identifying with limited aspects of itself that are of no value, and eliminating them.
The Soul experienced the rejection by the established order of its innovative new approaches when, due to its strong attachment to rigid ideas, it was not allowed to integrate its vision into the whole. This created a need to step back and learn objectivity and detachment through crisis-filled traumatic experiences. The Soul started to understand what was unique about itself through contrasting and bonding itself with like-minded others.
The Soul became aware of the universal forces beyond its sense of powerlessness and its limitations of narcissism, isolationism, resistance, and self-interest, and desired to merge with, form relationships, and osmose power from people, symbols or sources that represented what the Soul was trying to become. These cycles of continual death-rebirth of the Soul’s awareness created intense dual desires of merging with that which was desired (powerful symbols) followed by a sense of dissatisfaction reflecting the desire to move beyond any boundary and merge back with Source. Trauma was triggered when the Soul experienced abandonment, loss and violation of trust through friendships.
(F) NN ruler Pluto 3rd
– Facilitates the NN egocentric structures
The Soul had been resisting evolution in its past lives correlating to SN Taurus where it had felt highly secure in the ‘well.’ There had been a compulsion to not only repeat the SN dynamics but to also repeat the NN/PPP dynamics. The repeating of all of these dynamics resulting in trauma, fear and resistance because the Soul could no longer control its reality as defined by that past. This would result in new choices in the face of that past. By repeating the past life dynamics correlating to the PPP (widening its limited circle of activity to include world travel and commitment to work and service), those new choices would have the effect of evolving the NN (aligning with like-minded groups and linking the special purpose to a socially relevant need, communicating and sharing with naturalists all over the world), the SN (moving away from isolationism and narcissism), the SN ruler (instinctual inner messages evolving to listening to others), as well as natal Pluto itself (the intellectual structures and the transcendental belief system).
The Soul merged with powerful symbols of knowledge and, together with its massive databank of information, highly developed intellectual skills, huge questions in his mind, millions of pieces of specimens and evidence (touch, smell, see with own eyes), and studying and documenting the tiniest of variations, formulated the completely new human philosophy of evolution by natural selection (whatever survives will reproduce). This was facilitated by studying distinctive kinds of animals, fossils, rocks (geology), detecting an ordered sequence over time, and deducing from these tangible sources the idea of very slow evolution over vast spans of time.
The Soul was able to understand the unstoppable force of evolution (Pluto) thus revolutionizing how people understand the natural world. All the pieces of information that described the complexity and diversity of all life produced by Natural Laws were synthesized together in a comprehensive new scientific idea, thus correcting ideas about the age of the Earth, targeting religious distortion, crashing through illusions about God (creationism), and understanding how humans form part of the animal kingdom in the unity of creation (Pisces). The conclusion reached was that every living thing was related to another because creation had struggled for survival over great lengths of time. Soon the flow of information through books and publications flooded the world-wide scientific community. This new human philosophy would effect evolution for not only the Soul, but would change the world forever.
