Both the Sun and Mercury are square Pluto at 26 degrees of Aires-Capricorn. Sun-Pluto aspects relate to control, obsessive thinking, sex, money, power struggles and change born of necessity. This is not the time to start an argument, and if you do, expect pushback. Pluto deals with our shadow side, or the shadow side of humanity. Issues concerning death, taboos, seamy situations, young people and power/control control will all be in the news.
Mercury-Pluto is basically a transit of propaganda, or someone trying to push their viewpoint. It might be hard to let go of a certain pattern of thought for a day, or you could hear some type of revealing news. Mercury-Pluto can also deal with pets, cars, accidents and young people.
Both of these aspects can deal with deep seated fears, phobias, suspicions and mistrust, and it is not always comfortable energy, and arguments and power struggles are common. It is possible for positive change to occur in the form of letting go of, or purging something from your life that is not benefiting you which can include toxic or unfulfilling relationships. Important life changes can also be made, but not without a great deal of work.
The energy of these transits will continue through the weekend and into the first part of next week. Sun-Pluto will peak Friday morning, and Mercury-Pluto will reach its peak point or be exact late afternoon on Saturday. It is important to be aware of your surroundings, and other people’s moods, as well as your own over the next several days.
