Sun-Pluto Square

Sun-Pluto Square- Pressure

"To put up with what you cannot avoid is a philosophical principle, that may not perhaps lead you to the accomplishment of great deeds, but is assuredly eminently practical."

— Jules Verne

This week's Sun-Pluto square and Sun-Jupiter square increase the pressure this week. The atmosphere may encourage us to pursue impractical aspirations, especially under the kind of pressure we're dealing with. Venus has moved into the 'shadow' of her next retrograde period (May 13th - June 25th). In her slowdown, she just barely misses completing a trine to Mars, which restricts our ability to fully embrace cooperation and collaboration. Our progress this week is unsteady. The highly intellectual atmosphere is unstable, allowing emotions to slip in and get in the way of finding enough detachment to keep us fully focused on practical tasks and solutions. Restraint and self-control continue to be important skills over the course of this (now waning) lunar cycle. As well, our search for some kind of tradition or precedent that might help us navigate this atmosphere continues to be mostly unsatisfactory. However, with enough adaptability and resourcefulness, we find important opportunities this week to expand our options, broaden the path, and find alternative strategies and new ideas. The key is to avoid setting our sights too high. If we can stay adaptable, we will find extra ability to be resourceful. Inspiration and creativity, blended with practicality, can help us to find a set of workable guidelines that keep our aspirations in line with the facts on the ground. As well, although independence keeps us 'straining at the bit', there are some important opportunities to establish promising connections and at least set down markers for future cooperation and collaboration — even though such cooperation is tentative, at best, this week..

The Moon is VOC for much of the day on Sunday, sending practicality out the window. Making changes seems especially daunting. Pressure builds on Monday. Our heightened aspirations and philosophical ideals need to be tempered with practical insights. The is some help to channel our creativity and inspiration into tangible progress on Tuesday. Nonetheless, we could still have our 'head in the clouds' by Tuesday evening. Intellectual energy is especially unstable on Wednesday. There are some unexpected concerns over how others are seeing us. Despite the increased intellect, it isn't easy to agree on the facts. Adaptability and resourcefulness provide extra hope on Thursday. We begin to find ways to adapt traditional guidelines to current conditions. If we are able to slow down enough on Friday, we have the opportunity to discover storehouses of knowledge and new resources. On Saturday, we begin to recognize some new ways to begin to establish new connections and potential new opportunities for cooperation and collaboration.
