Mars-Pluto Square

Mars-Pluto Square - Stubborn Transformation

"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase."

— Martin Luther King, Jr.

Early this week — by Tuesday — Mars completes a square to Pluto. However, the overriding action is set up by the completion of the Sun's square to Saturn on Sunday. The overall lack of clarity and the chaos produced by the mutable-sign Sun-Saturn square only serves to increase the frustration of the fixed-sign Mars-Pluto square without offering any clear sense of purpose or mission. Although the tension seems intense, there are few outlets and even fewer clear, articulate voices. We are likely to feel insecure and uncertain, as well as quite stuck. We aren't able to articulate what we might need in order to feel more secure and so the first part of this week brings an intense desire to escape — possibly even embarking on a search for 'greener pastures'. Nonetheless, the Sun, Moon and Venus' squares to Saturn, which were present at last Thursday's Gemini New Moon (5:37 AM PDT 16° Gemini), are whispering to us that there is power and purpose in simply 'keeping the faith'. We are challenged to rely on faith and intuitive clues in order to keep moving forward even when we aren't sure where we're going. The presence of Saturn in Pisces intensifies our empathy, compassion and sensitivity. We are feeling the intensity of Saturn in Pisces even more this week since it is slowing down to turn retrograde by the end of the month. Even though this week's mutable squares are likely to feel quite overwhelming there are resolutions provided that seem to fall into place spontaneously. By the time that Mercury completes the superior conjunction with the Sun on Friday our awareness begins to expand enough to realize that faith may be our only salvation. Both the Sun and Mercury move past the challenging squares to Saturn to sextile Chiron, offering a new sense of purpose and meaning. While we may not have clarity about much, we can at least begin to recognize that if we're going to get anywhere at all, we need to 'have a little faith'. With faith, we can move forward without really knowing exactly where we're going. Actually, intuition seems to fill in many of the 'gaps' and our awareness grows throughout the week. As we begin to see things fall into place, we might like to take as much credit for ourselves as possible. However, we'll do better to simply express gratitude and keep moving forward. Saturn's retrograde motion in Pisces will rule the return of Pluto's last dip into Capricorn later this year, increasing the tendency to look back over many of our choices with some renewed self-doubt. The correctness of our choices will be less important than the compassion and humility with which we implemented them.

There may be some emotional turmoil or excessive sympathy on Sunday. While we may feel quite insecure, it isn't easy to articulate what we might need in order to feel more secure. A desire to somehow escape the pressure emerges on Monday. We may be more inclined to employ denial rather than look for any kind of solution. Although we may find a clearer picture on Tuesday, we feel more stuck than ever. 'Keeping the faith' is likely to be our best or only option. We aren't able to find any sense of continuity on Wednesday. We feel stuck even though things also seem hopelessly overwhelming and out of control. We are able to settle down quite a bit on Thursday. Offering sympathy actually seems to give us a much needed sense of purpose. There is significantly expanded awareness and understanding on Friday, even if we aren't quite sure where we're heading. Communication is easier and more productive, which helps us to slow down and make a few adjustments. We are likely to feel some sense of relief on Saturday, even if there is also a bit of self-doubt. Any resolutions have seemed to fall into place on their own.
