Mercury Conjunct Pluto in Capricorn
Square Uranus in Aries Square Jupiter in Libra
Mercury in Capricorn has joined Pluto at the apex of the
Cardinal T-Square, forming its own square with the
Jupiter / Uranus opposition.
These aspects formed between 18 and 23°.
The theme of this pattern is
Radically adjusting your perspectives and opinions
in ways that affect your drive for independence and
the kind of people you want as allies and partners.
This will be interesting. Mercury contacts Pluto at least once a year, depending on its retrograde cycle. This time, although it didn't make the exact conjunction, in mid-December it turned retrograde within a degree and a half of Pluto and started backwards through the sign. Astrologers would easily call that "close enough" to be valid. (Anything within 5 - 8° qualifies, so this one certainly does.)
This began a period of extraordinary "fluidity" in your thinking ... about the life structures affected, the changing "rules and regulations," the "new normal" that has arrived -- and how it affects you, your beliefs, your choices and behavior. It takes a while to adjust to something this big, but here we are.
We've got some opinions to count on. We've got a "take" on how life itself is different. We may or may not like what's happened, but we at least have a solid idea of what's going on and our response to it. Reactions will soon follow -- especially after Mars contacts Uranus in Aries -- in early March.
