Mars squares Pluto this week at 21 degrees of Aries-Capricorn and it will be exact February 1. We will feel the energy of this powerful aspect in the days before and after February 1.
Those with planets at 20-22 degrees of Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn will be affected to a greater degree than others.
This transit can create an atmosphere of stress, compulsiveness, or even obsession. With hard Pluto aspects many people act out their own compulsions, which are far different from acting in a rational manner.
Power struggles can occur over minor or major issues and in some cases the ego can be prominent in the dispute. Worst case scenario, this transit can represent violence, but that is not the usual manifestation. Jealousy, especially sexual jealousy can also be a manifestation.
Some people may come off as aggressive and angry, or you could experience issues over joint finances, taxes, insurance or debt.
There can be a need for self regeneration, and to exercise caution, patience and good judgment. This transit can amp up your determination, ambition, and relates to the elimination of old conditions and the creation of new ones, but if this is the case, nothing comes easily.
At its best, this transit may transform something to a different situation, place or level. For example, and issue may finally be resolved one way or another and this can include relationships, business, and they way you approach things.
In the world we will see issues relating to abuse of power, anger and disagreements and the potential exists for violence.
