Mercury Trine Pluto

Mercury Trine Pluto - Deep Dives

"I want to be with those who know secret things or else alone."

— Rainer Maria Rilke

This week provides a true watershed of insight, perceptivity, and understanding but only if we are willing to 'show up' and follow the threads of intuitive wisdom that are offered. Mercury retrogrades back into Taurus and makes the second of three trines to Pluto. Mercury trine Pluto encourages 'deep dives' into our concept of security and helping us to make the distinction between what we can and cannot control. Ultimately, this week assigns us an 'inside job' of clearing away frustrations and resentments so that we can fully appreciate the entirely transformed new landscape with which we are presented. Mars arrives in Aries on Tuesday, 'hand in hand' with the Moon as they both join the expansive, optimistic, enthusiasm of Jupiter in Aries. Meanwhile — on the other end of Aries — Venus struggles to escape the bounds of Aries in order to get 'home' to Taurus. Venus has not exactly had a smooth ride through Aries. The dramatic developments and transformations have produced challenges with regard to Venus' desire for peace and cooperation. Once Venus arrives on the Aries/Taurus cusp on Friday, there are increasingly promising opportunities to 'bless and release' the past while clearing away frustrations and resentments. As Mars approaches a conjunction with Jupiter, there is some desire to simply 'drop it and move on' but determination and persistence to pursue a course of reconciliation has the potential to ease the challenges of the next lunar cycle — beginning with next week's Gemini New Moon (May 30th 4:30 AM PDT 9° Gemini). Mercury will retrograde back into a square to Saturn and could lead us to get stuck in old habits and routines that we can perform 'by rote', instead of courageously exploring the new landscape and beginning to recognize our new and expanded abilities and capacities. The more we linger in self-deception and self-righteous indignation, the less we will be able to take advantage of the new connections and openings for communication that will be offered by the Gemini New Moon. The deeper and more fearlessly we dig into what we need in order to feel truly secure, the better we will be able to gather this week's blessings. We need to be willing to put our money where our mouth is and prepare to carry our insights into a transformed future and share those insights freely with others.

We may find a rather chaotic atmosphere on Monday. However, as we move through the day we have the opportunity to increase our perceptivity and find new insights about the challenges that we face. Further insights come in flashes on Monday but we may do better to simply observe, rather than try too hard to explain what we are seeing. There are especially valuable opportunities to find breakthroughs through meditation or self-exploration. The energy shifts dramatically on Tuesday afternoon when Mars and the Moon both move into Aries together to join Jupiter. We can begin to recognize that we have new capabilities that can serve us well within a dramatically changed landscape. Mercury retrogrades back to the second of three trines to Pluto on Wednesday. We have a chance to bless and release the past. However, a Venus-Pluto square may have us demanding more from others rather than exploring our own insights and embracing our own 'power'. We should remember that faith without works is dead on Thursday. The need for some kind of cooperation or teamwork shows us that we can do better when we work with others. There is increased persistence and determination to 'clear the air' on Friday. Nonetheless, some will hold tight to self-righteous points of view that don't leave room for reconciliation. Venus arrives in Taurus on Saturday and we may begin to find a new level of security or stability. However, it may be difficult to completely let go of the safety of the past in order to embrace the promise of better security by moving toward the future.
