September 30-October 6

Ready for the depths? Transformative Pluto ends a retrograde that began in Capricorn on April 24th this Wednesday. When Pluto was retrograde, we were asked to go deep within our existential worlds and identity all the ways we‘re unwilling to change because we’re afraid of uncertainty, our own power, joy, etc. With Pluto now direct in Capricorn, the zodiac’s inspired to do the shadow work necessary to transform. 

Just in time for messenger Mercury entering Scorpio on Thursday helping us excavate the unknown, hidden secrets, and the communication/listening of our sexual desires. Perhaps we’ll be willing to share with our Pluto retrograde experiences with those who need to hear it? Also, with Mercury in Scorpio, there’s an emphasis on desire as “owning the wanting” which helps us with the relational verbs: receive, take, share, and refuse. 

That same day, Mars wraps up its tour of Virgo from the middle of August and enters Libra until the end of November helping us balance our needs with others. We’ll be motivated by mutuality, the win/wins, and brokering our needs in equilibrium with others. This Mars transit is a helpful time for us to fight for our lives to be more relational than individual, too. So if you have a pattern of pushing people away from getting too close, this Mars transit will help you set up your life for more closeness.
