Moon Conjunct Pluto Natives

Bettie Page (06’) was a famous pin-up girl in the 1950’s. Her jet-black hair and ice blue eyes helped establish her reputation as the first iconic fetish/bondage star. You can see the effects of the Moon conjunct Pluto aspect permeate her whole life. Bettie claims her father molested her as a teenager and she lived in an orphanage for a year. A traumatic family life left her scarred so in her later life, despite finding Christianity, she was known to have fierce mood swings and manic depression. Betties volatile mental state was such that she spent many years in a sanatorium.

As a student Bettie was very bright, won a scholarship and was intending to become a teacher. Instead she went into acting, but her movie-star looks seem to attract more notoriety than real offers of film stardom. Page became a glamour model and her daringness in front of the camera quickly made her a hit with erotic photographers. She found her niche with bondage and S & M, appearing in fetishist silent movies either as a dominatrix or a bound victim. The movies were underground and clandestine, they were kinky but not explicit. Page kept a suitably Plutonic air of erotic mystery and became known as “The Dark Angel.” Bettie fell into obscurity after she became a born-again Christian and suffered a nervous breakdown. However like a Phoenix from the flames, she enjoyed a revival in the 1980s. Bettie attracted a large cult following, due to the era’s fascination with retro erotica of which she was a beautifully gothic example.

      memories of heaven.

  2. I have this aspect just out of Astro.coms boundaries for a conjunction from Libra to Scorpio. I heard the Moon and Sun are given to wider degrees. And I feel like this is so true. Anywhere I go people try projecting on me what they feel. I was my mothers sexual scapegoat on her own sexual abuse from her father. She basically made me feel guilty about her own inability to watch me around a male friend of her female best friend. I was so dis associated from what was going on, that my half sister is the one that caught him touching me sexually. From whence my mother, although suspicious, she said of him that he used to want to take me in his truck because NO girls allowed. Just guys whatever and my mom thought it was strange he so good with children. Alas my Mom was a Leo South Node and she was too selfish to notice him hurting me for so long.

    Being my Moon is in scorpio in the 4th house on the IC, with Pluto barring down on it. I am still unprogramming myself from my mother. And at 35 am just finally breaking free of all the family scapegoating her AND THE public did to me. First off I would have never acted out sexually on the same sister at a later time. If she trusted my sisters word and did not live like a queen, too absorbed in her agendas with my sisters father. But they made ME aplogize and say I was a child molester. That I am the cause of so much of my sisters future torment. Its like I did not realize my mother could over power the therapists when I was 7 and say, HOW DARE YOU tell me I am the cause of these mis-haps. NO BLAME IT ON A 7 year old.

    Now today after this week, I am completely free of any guilt. As telling my story to a Cancerian Moon. My mother trying to help, when I was 17 and a run-away from a grouphome I almost was killed in for being gay at. JUST REALIZED THIS WEEK. She ran me into a black sheep of the family member of my sisters father. Who she said she was sure was gay and yadda yadda, that I could go be myself there. He remolested me after only being in philidelphia for 4 hours. Among drink bottles and trolley cars and a home that looked like it was meant for 1 family but now is split in 4? My mom apologized for the embarrasement but I still could not hold her accountable. How could you Virgo Moon Square Mars Anterian, send me into violation agian. And then not own up to it. Quietly hope i am enamored with my own freedom and you die before I could bring it upon you what you really caused.
    It is no wonder I do not remember most of my childhood. Its not that I have a bad memory, its that I know what Disassociation means now. I had to to survive. My mom was not taking any responsiblity for what happend to her, and then me.

    Sorry for the PTSD writing, but if I try and concentrate to much on spelling while writing about this. Id never get it out, judge it delete it and change my mind. Sorry.

    • uranian mane,if you believe we preincarnationally choose these difficult life exeriences, for soul learning,then those who have been pushed down so low ,like a cork under water, can spring back higher,as the whole intention ,is to see what was experienced ,from the uneducated and alienated,who were bad role models,like a rotweiler, can be sweet, or rip the throat out according to its conditioning.did you molest your sister,if so have you accept, you were getting out of your system and take responsibility,what happened to you,then you can feel sorry about the whole situation,there is no blame,only understanding.Those who have had good parenting,have no idea what its like to be with the deniers ,and that includes ourselves,if we have unconsciously,just been following orders ,then we have to retrain ourselves, like a phoenix rising from the ashes, the dieing embers, of a mad life situation ,to arise in a new good form, to teach others, a better way to live. strong souls always see a better caring way of being.
