Atlanta, The video on the side is a wonderful animated version of “A Christmas Carol”, Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas ghost story. Animated in the style of 1800s engravings it features the voices of Alistair Sim and Michael Redgrave.
In “A Christmas Carol” Scrooge is visited by three spirits, the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future…during his journey through that dark night, as the ghosts shines a light on events of the past, present and potential future, Scrooge realizes how the pain of his childhood miss-shaped the loving child he once was, into the dark and ugly man he has become, in seeing his pain, the pain he is now causing others and what the future holds, Ebenezer Scrooge is reborn on Christmas morning a new man.
Because I am an astrologer, I think astrologically, and each time I watch or read the story of Ebener Scrooge I think, a Capricorn having a “Pluto transit”. Thought Ebenezer transformed and was reborn a better man in one short but very anguished night, Pluto’s transits are slow, sometimes lasting 3 years ~ however, if the demons and ghosts of our past are confronted and put in their proper place the end result will be the same ~ redemption and resurrection.
The dark night of the soul: the Pluto crisis, redemption and resurrection
