Mars-Pluto Opposition,active this weekend from 30th June to 3rd July.
“The only way to win with a toxic person is not to play”
We have an exact oppostion of Mars and Mercury in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn at 18 degrees, square Jupiter, this weekend.
We have been feeling the energies build for days now.
This strong tense, energy will be hard for some people to contain, resulting in potential arguments, anger, inner fears and frustration.
Making some people’s ego’s rather over blown (Jupiter) and opinionated (Mercury) and everyone fighting (Mars) for what they believe is right, some resorting to manipulation and a misuse of power as well as projecting their own fear and hate onto others (Pluto).
With Mars, Mercury and the Sun in Cancer, there is a strong desire to be with close family and friends where we feel “emotionally nurtured” but there can be a tendency for people to easily get their “buttons” pushed taking things too personally and be quickly offended. With long buried deep resentments or hurts coming up for healing, especially around family issues or with close friends.
We now have tremendous potential to heal any deeply buried wounds within our subconscious, as Chiron the healer planet, is especially powerful as he stations retrograde now.
Interestingly I have noticed a huge increase in “road rage” incidents and “War of words” in the News the past few days. With Mercury in the middle of this tense aspect between Pluto and Mars. Mercury is how we express ourselves.
Luckily tomorrow the 1st/2nd July we have the Moon in Libra conjunct Jupiter to lighten up the energies with Jupiter bestowing us with happiness and good fortune and the Moon in Libra with fairness and diplomacy. With a potential to overindulge in too much fun and spending.
We need to be the peace bringers (Moon in Libra, Jupiter in Libra) and not help to escalate toxic power struggles, hate and division (Pluto-Mars)
Without your reaction they are powerless
Now more important to remember than ever, as toxic Power struggles and people can abound this Week lasting until the Full Moon in Capricorn conjoined to Pluto on the 8th July.
We need to stand in our power(Pluto) and not give it away, by playing into their toxic games and drama’s.
We are certainly being challenged to practice the “art” of setting healthy, firm boundaries this week, without unnecessarily furthering and escalating the situation while still “owning” our power.
On the plus side, when we channel and harness the Mars-Pluto energy we can feel empowered and have extra drive and ambition to reach our goals and dreams.
Mars together with Pluto is an unstoppable force, who will not take no for an answer. Where we might have been saying before, “no I can`t,” we can now surprise ourselves and others, by saying, “YES I CAN.”
It’s a passionate and charismatic energy that can be channeled into more passion into our creative projects, goals and love.
However on the downside, Mars opposite Pluto can have a reputation for being ruthless and agressive, when the powerful energies of this combination are not consciously channelled into a higher energy. We need to be mindful of not trying to achieve our wants and desires with to much force. We can achieve anything now with the Moon in Libras energies of fairness, charm, peace and skilful diplomacy.
Gandhi had this same combination of Mars opposite Pluto and Sun in Libra in his natal chart, but he consciously harnessed his tense Pluto-Mars power, giving it direction towards peace, to liberate and unite India without violence.
