Pluto & The Power of Myth

I have been re-reading The Power of Myth the wonderful book based on the 1980's TV Series of the same name, which is basically a conversation between mythologist Joseph Campbell and journalist Bill Moyers.

In the book, I came across the following quote from Campbell:

"One thing that comes out in myths is that at the bottom of the abyss comes the voice of salvation. The black moment is when the real message of transformation is going to come. At the darkest moment comes the light."

These words speak to me as a reflection of the processes symbolised by Pluto in astrology...a message, ultimately, of hope.

(& as if you haven't already guessed, I'm having my very own personal Pluto transit right now!!! )
