The Sun in Taurus Trines Pluto

Today, the Sun in Taurus trines Pluto Rx (at 13 degrees) Capricorn. This is resolute power; planting yourself in the assurance that where you are right now, is where you're supposed to be.

Remember that Taurus works with what is. This is happening in the natal house occupied by 13 degrees Taurus. Pluto is adding fuel to that concept, but Pluto is Rx (intensified) so that power comes from digging deeper into what you know. Venus' entrance into Aries (yesterday) suggests approaching your existing situation with new passion.

I like this combination of energies; they're straightforward and determined. You are exactly where you're meant to be, so work it. The Sun is starting to feel a sextile from expansive Jupiter (at 15 degrees Cancer) which will be exact on May 6th. And then it will sextile Wounded Healer Chiron (at 16 degrees Pisces) on May 7th. This hooks the Sun into the trine between Jupiter and Chiron. There's your hope that waters the ground you're planted in. There is room for optimism and healing, so don't give up.

Of course, you have to be realistic. There's not much latitude for fantasy these days, but just in case some of you are wandering down a foggy path, know that Taurus insists you look at the reality of what's in front of you. Venus in Aries insists that it's obvious. There is no guessing and no unknowns. What you see is what you get and that's what you're working with.

If you have natal or progressed planets/angles/Nodes from 11-13 degrees of the Earth signs, you'll feel the power of the Pluto trine most strongly. Anything from 13-16 degrees of Taurus, Cancer or Pisces will feel the sextiles from Jupiter/Chiron.
