There’s heaps going on astrologically over this weekend. So many things stirring and so much potential for breaking through. Use it wisely!
Full Moon, Venus-Saturn opposition, Mars-Pluto square, and all this clouded in the potential confusion and delusion of Mercury and Neptune being retrograde. It would be easy to get lost in what is not present … and it will take an effort to stay real and grounded. But if you can, the possibility for growth is great.
Following closely on the heels of the Full Moon and Venus-Saturn aspect, Mars moves back into Square with Pluto on Friday or Saturday (depending where you are on this planet). Mars was retrograde for a few months until late May, so as it moves forward it is repeating the Pluto squares of April and January this year … meaning that it will reactivate the breakthroughs or tensions of those times. Now is the time to move through the tension … and to really get the breakthrough! It will only cause stress if we refuse to go with the challenges and opportunities that are being offered. Whatever emerged in January and / or April, the next week or so is a time to look deeply into how to make the transformations that seemed possible then work in our lives. The energy of this transit is powerful, intense and dynamic. The opportunity for change is palpable.
But take care. Mars is the assertive planet and Pluto is the transformative one, so when these two are Square to each other, the desire to assert self and the need for transformation can be pulling us in different directions. The forcefulness of Mars-Pluto can be quite ruthless and hurtful if we’re not in tune with our underlying ego drives. This might manifest outwardly as arguments or struggles with others, or inwardly as self-destructive behaviours. If we’re not conscious, it can come out as destructive rage or manipulation.
And, keep in mind that everyone will be feeling this to some degree, so people will be upset, angry, irritated and being less than conscious, causing hassles without knowing where the drive is coming from. Take a deep breath, and take responsibility!! Focus on the opportunity for growth, and as Jim says …. break on through to the other side!
