Using mythology, archetypal symbolism, and a wealth of case histories, this study provides new material and insight into the many facets of this major, transformative contact between the intimate and emotional Moon and the remote, deeply enigmatic Pluto. The story of Pluto-Moon contacts is the eternal saga of birth, death, and rebirth: abandonment and rejection; karma, transformation, and new life. No other planetary contact has such a depth of trauma, compulsion, and alienation. No other aspect has quite the same metamorphic and healing potential. Hall explains why Pluto-Moon aspects are so important, and gives a description of the Hades Moon through the signs. She also explores the Pluto cycle, Pluto from incarnation to initiation, Pluto in the Houses, and Pluto transits and the Hades Moon. She explores the emotional issues of alienation, abandonment, rejection, and adoption, delves into the archetype of the dark mother and shows how to trace enmeshed family patterns. Throughout the book, Hall offers information about flower essences and techniques that can help people handle Hades Moon energy.
