After the arrival of Persephone, we’re pleased to announce the birth of Pluton. With this Equilibrium 121 the Orange in the base fraction continues to offer us healing of the timeline yet now instead of the clear in the upper fraction we introduce a new colour in the whole of the system of Aura-Soma, ‘Lime Green’. Pluton is synonymous with Hades – the God of the Unseen, he was the son of Titans, Cronus and Rhea, brother of the deities, Zeus, Poseidon, Demeter (Ceres), Hera and Hestia. Pluto or Pluton is often referred to as ruling the land of the dead and was then given the name Hades. Pluto was given the name Hades as it referred to the more positive aspects of his nature. Also he can be referred to as the ‘God of mortality and riches’. The reason for being named the ‘God of Wealth’ is in reference to the mineral wealth found underground.
Pluto was married to Persephone and this is perhaps one of the more salient points for Aura-Soma at this time. One of the gifts of Pluton is the gift of invisibility. As we know from B120, Persephone grew to love Hades or Pluto, who treated her with compassion and loved her as his Queen. Persephone remained eternally beautiful in the Underworld as she would’ve done in Olympus. Remember, Hades saw Persephone picking flowers one day in a meadow and fell in love with her immediately, subsequently carrying her off in his chariot to live with him in the Underworld. When we think about the ‘Lime Green’ it has both the qualities of the Pale Olive and also the Yellow, we must interpret this as a true sense of the hope for joy, to overcome the fears, to establish within ourselves a new sense of direction as we come closer to the potential of healing the timeline (Orange). We also think of this Lime Green as springtime but it’s a spring within ourselves, where new shoots begin to issue forth. If we’ve chosen not to identify with the fears and triggers existent in the outer world, the possibility exists to come to an understanding of a deep truth within ourselves if we’re to face the shadow squarely. Zeus or Jupiter as a symbol or analogy for growth, blessed the coming together of Persephone and Hades, it’s quite complex to describe why I feel the birth and its coincidence with the Harvest Moon is so relevant. As the Goddess of Harvest, Demeter (Ceres) searched the Earth for her lost daughter; it feels poignant that Pluton is arriving at this time. Ceres and Pluton came to an understanding through their deep love of Persephone that she be able to share her time between them both. Knowing if she were to eat anything in the Underworld she would be bound to return, Persephone accepted the pomegranate seeds offered by Hades, the pomegranate also being symbolic of a deeper understanding of the neural pathways and consciousness within ourselves. Cycles of seasonality are central in the symbolic interpretation of these Greco-Roman myths, the cycles of birth and death. Again Ceres being the Goddess of Harvest, could be interpreted as the storing of the seed of the summer underground, Persephone in the Underworld. This seed stored underground is then planted in the Autumn – the seeds of insight (Orange), that can be made conscious through the growth in the Lime Green.
Preparations for a more conscious approach by accepting ourselves at the deeper level of ourselves to know that there are unconscious patterns that create conditions in our lives that we need to look at to be able to transcend or work with or find the gift within, the potential for the deepest joy, bliss, if we can plumb the truth within ourselves.
The numbers, 12, 1, we can see an initiation into the rescuing of our physicality, we also see a 13 – the first level of letting go and in that letting go there’s also a new beginning for love that’s brought through to a cellular level to our physicality. The 4 that is the totality of the number of the bottle says it’s specific to the solar plexus and here because of the Lime Green there’s that certain sense of a slight acidity as we let go of the knot of contraction within the self. There is also an 11 doorway that allows the 2 to come through, this symbolises the receptive Goddess, empowered within ourselves, being born within ourselves.
With Love and Light
