Last week’s blogathon on Surviving the Cardinal T-Square was an amazing web-based event. We had more than 70 articles by professional astrologers from around the world who shared their takes on how to work with the challenging series of transits from Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn in Libra, and Uranus in Aries.
I coordinated a collection of 17 articles about working with Pluto transits and the kinds of problems associated with it that so many people are facing. My background is in social work, and so my criteria for selecting the articles in that group were very specific. They had to provide astrological and psychological insights into the problems AND suggest helpful resources or tools for the reader to work with. Below are links to the 5 articles that readers visited most.

Finally, most of you have probably taken the test to see if your own Pluto is powerful in your birth chart, but it was actually the top post of the blogathon over all. With over 3500 page hits since it was published, it’s also the top post of all time on Skywriter. Just in case you haven’t seen it, the link is here: How Strong is your Pluto? Here’s the Score!
