Note: Some of you did not receive your daily astrology yesterday (10/1), and I apologize. A scheduling conflict caused me to be unable to send them out on time. That conflict has been cleared up and here’s to smooth sailing from here forward! Thank you for your continued support!
Pluto stations direct today into tomorrow after its retrograde trajectory since April 24th. Pluto is the planet of transformation. Symbolized by the god of the underworld, this planet rules over power and control, the subconscious and our shadow selves, secrets, and deep karmic change. That said, retrogrades are all about the “re”s: Rewinding, reflecting, reviewing, reevaluating — you get the picture. In the case of Pluto’s retrograde, were called to look at ourselves — specifically our shadow sides and issues. Shadow work is tough, as it involves facing the parts of ourselves and our lives that we tend to want to suppress, change, hide, or ignore completely. But darkness loses some of its power in the light, so facing (and even embracing) our own darkness and bringing it into the sun is a good way to transform and understand ourselves even better. On the upside, Pluto is associated with renewal and rebirth. It represents endings and new beginnings, as well as spiritual growth and rebirth. Negative expression of Pluto is an obsessive desire for power and control and general destructiveness. So, we move from an intensive need for control and power on a large scale (thinking currently of our current U.S. presidency) to a chance for us to apply the lessons we have learned and find a better way forward.
Mercury and Mars prepare to change signs, as well. We are asked for productive cooperation, so we’ll have to remain adaptable and teachable going forward. It will be tempting to point out others’ flaws, but that will splash back on us and our own flaws will be scrutinized. Remember: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
There isn’t much Sagittarian optimism in the Moon’s transit through the sign today. We’re more likely to speak without thinking things through (a notable trait of Sagittarius). However, it’s also likely that we quickly learn our lesson and become more circumspect right away. This environment is especially messy as far as personal interactions are concerned, so we should do our best to tread lightly and avoid taking things too personally.
