Bram Stoker

Bram Stoker, the creator of Dracula, was born on November 8, 1847.  This makes him a Child of Pluto.  Pluto was named after the Roman God of the Dead, so it’s fitting that the man who invented the vampire genre should be born under this planet.  Pluto is the planet of ordeals and the transformations that arise from them.  It’s not an easy planet to be ruled by as Pluto can make his children compulsive, a tad sex obsessed, and no stranger to near death experiences.  Children of Pluto yearn for spiritual transformation, but the only way to trigger it is to journey down into their own personal underworld. This is why Children of Pluto often come across as being self-destructive.  To people who don’t know better it looks like they are actively courting disaster and asking for trouble.  Yet Children of Pluto know in their gut that it is only by descending into the deepest darkest part of themselves that they will be able to unlock the life force that is buried within them like a seed.  And like a seed, that life force will push up towards the light, transforming their lives and making them truly “born again”.  The Evangelist Billy Graham is a Child of Pluto.  He was born on November 7th, the day before Bram Stoker.  The battle between lust and abstinence, the intertwining of conscience and compulsion, and dying in order to live forever are familiar themes to anyone who has read Dracula or any of the other vampire books that Dracula has spawned.  Stoker tapped a vein hidden within all of us thereby transforming a gothic romance into a disquieting morality tale for the ages.
