Third Quarter Square
The Third Quarter Square can bring up emotional crises that get you thinking about the nature of give and take in your relationships. Insecurity, mother/child issues or situations from the past can trigger imbalances that feel unfair. It may feel uncomfortable to question the nature of certain associations now, but the discomfort is a sign that all is not well.
Ultimately, you want to move to a place of balance and compromise, but that will involve honouring your needs and paying attention to what feels unsafe. Only by acknowledging what feels right for you can you achieve true balance with another. And this also means acknowledging when you have been immature, needy or helpless.
The square between Mercury and Pluto echoes the crisis of the Third Quarter Square. Thoughts and discussions will be intense and not straightforward. Guaranteed that there’s more going on behind the scenes, so take note of what’s not being said or what’s lurking on the edge of your awareness.
Pluto is the shadow behind Mercury in Libra’s socially acceptable words or thoughts that say “Everything is fine.” Everything is not fine, and ignoring this won’t make it go away. What don’t you want to admit? Pluto is also the uncomfortable truth - the sooner you look at what’s really going on, the sooner you can move forward.
The Mercury/Pluto square also connects to yesterday’s Mars/BML conjunction.
