Waning Trine between the Capricorn Moon and Taurus Sun (3 deg)
Mercury in Aries conjunct Vesta (9 deg)
Pluto stations Rx in Capricorn (23 deg)
The Waning Trine integrates set routines and the preservation of something (resources, security) with the ambition to make it happen. Rather than just sitting there and clinging to what you have, this energy encourages you to focus on what you want, in the future. There should be a reasonable path to follow that allows you to make it real, and a sense that others support and share your goals.
Note that the Capricorn Moon is also squaring Chiron in Aries, so there will be some bumps along the way as you confront fears and weaknesses. If this happens, stick with what you know is solid and has value.
Devotion to an area of passion, anger or initiative is doubled as Mercury introduces absolute words- say it and make it so. This is an uncompromising verbal or written jolt that’s given power through devotion- what sacred issue demands that you stand up and speak your mind?
Pluto retrograde is like going back over the earth you’ve already tilled bcause some weeds still remain. The process of excavation and transformation is targeted on one area where the weeds/rotten structures refuse to let go.
Ongoing transformations can be delayed. A “death” may be put on hold, but it’s temporary. The process is always thorough. Sometimes you get breathing room, and the best use of this time is to take stock of what’s changed so far. And, prepare yourself for the continuing transformations once Pluto stations direct (on Oct 30th).
Pluto will Rx back to 20 deg Capricorn, so 20 to 23 deg of the Cardinal and Earth signs are in the zone for intensified excavation. if you have anything at 23 deg exactly, you’ll experience a pause as of May 19th (roughly) but the deconstruction will pick up again as of Jan 19th, 2020.
