The Sun squares Pluto in the early morning hours of April 13, so this energy will be felt strongly the day before. As this transit approaches on Friday afternoon the Moon also opposes Pluto and this can cause power struggles, obsessions, and it can also relate to abuse of power in the world and our personal lives.
This can be a difficult transit fraught with struggles and arguments if you aren't careful. You may be prone toward getting into useless battles or even debates, which brings up the old adage, 'chose your battles carefully.' It could be difficult to find common ground.
This can stir up ambition, aggravation and the bullies in the world who will make themselves known.
You may not be in the mood for superficiality, as Pluto transit go beneath the surface and are satisfied with nothing less.
There could be issues over joint finances or money matters, sex, obsessiveness or control. Pluto rules the dark side of emotions and at times, actions. There will be those who try and force their will on others, or treat others harshly, and this may necessitate the need for courage and strength.
Used wisely (with this transit) you can accomplish a great deal and make changes by bringing things out in the open, but you must take a careful, diplomatic and well thought out approach. If there are conflicts however, realize the other party may not be so diplomatic. If this is the case, my advice is to wait for this energy to pass over the next 24-48 hours.
This transit will play out in the world as described above and you can bet the media will be involved. It will be a day of conflict on many levels.
It is no surprise Julian Assange has been arrested by British police at this time as the Sun-Pluto square falls on his natal Mercury, ruling the written word. Look for much more to come in this case.
