Mercury in Aries square Pluto Rx in Capricorn (23 deg)
Mercury in Aries trine Jupiter Rx in Sagittarius (23 deg)
Powerful words/thoughts today, as Mercury/Pluto indicates assertive (or bullying) communication that’s based on a deeper, unseen crisis involving loss of power. Whether you’re being confronted by someone who’s challenging your ideas, or you’re encountering a profound but upsetting revelation, know that there’s more beneath the surface. What you hear or read is not the whole story - pay attention to hidden motivations.
This energy can manifest as almost violently aggressive words - know that the real insistence comes from a deeper drive to reveal a truth in a distorted fashion. You can get a handle on this by becoming aware of what no one (including you) wants to openly acknowledge.
Mercury’s trine to Jupiter can amplify the push to dominate others (verbally) or expand your vision so you can see past the power struggle/fear. Jupiter increases optimism and enthusiasm, but with Pluto in the background there can be an unpleasant edge.
As always, it’s up to you how you handle this energy. Overall, this is favourable for delivering a forceful message that convinces others (whether they want to be convinced or not) but you’ll reap the benefits if you confront Pluto’s hidden issue. Jupiter gifts you with breadth (big ideas!) and Pluto brings depth, but the square is a crisis aspect, so the depth can only be accessed once you turn a difficult corner (have the hard convo, confront the ugly thought).
Note that Pluto and Jupiter are both Rx, so you may be returning to something from the past or focusing on one area that’s receiving an intensified push.
