NO CONSENT: Mars Square Pluto This Weekend

I’m going to give you another warning about this week, okay? Okay!

BUT FIRST a big thank you to astrologer Maria DiSimone who had me on her podcast yesterday! The show will be available on Friday and I’ll make sure to share it here and on my social media.

"mars square pluto"
Why am I giving you another warning?

Because I don’t want you to forget that the Mars Pluto square is exact on Sunday.

Exact = we are building towards this aspect now so it’s growing stronger and stronger day by day. We’re in the hot zone now. It’s Wednesday as I type this and the aspect “perfects” Sunday morning. 

Today we are under these sweet gauzy trines including VENUS TRINE NEPTUNE so you may not feel the Mars Pluto undercurrent YET.

Or you may. I’ve had folks on my Facebook say they already blew up at people or vice versa. Mars is in Libra (associated with relationships).

You are going to want to be, well, as graceful as can be even if your pot boileth over on the inside. Stay safe.

As I wrote on my FB Timeline yesterday: I am not predicting any harm to befall you! But I am predicting this sweet Venus Neptune vibe will give way to a beast.

The question then becomes:
how do you handle the beast?
Who is the beast? Is it yours?
Theirs? Both?

What is Mars? 
Energy. Passion. Blood. Aggression. Force. NO CONSENT.

Mars does. Mars takes. Mars doesn’t ask questions.
MARS IS NOT A PEOPLE PLEASER. Mars is not nice.
Mars and Pluto together DO NOT REQUIRE YOUR CONSENT.

What is Pluto?
Power. Just one word for now. POWER.

But think of Pluto, for our purposes here, as your inner power. Inner STRENGTH. Inner “I’m gonna get what I want” as opposed to “I can do THIS many push-ups.” The number of push-ups or the amount of weight you lift, that is MARS. But Pluto is the absolute unwavering desire or commitment to the goal, no matter how short or long term. Pluto is a state of mind. Pluto is a plan.

Pluto sets the fire. Mars runs into it.

When these two SQUARE each other, things can go awry, things can go badly, it can get unwieldy. I’m being NICE as I describe this. You drop the weight on your foot. You don’t know your own strength. You hurt yourself. You hurt someone else.

Pluto is refusal. Refusal so stop, refusal to bend. Refusal to indulge in your stupid self-care ritual. I WILL NOT STOP UNTIL I GET WHAT I WANT AND I WILL PROBABLY KEEP GOING AFTER THAT says Pluto. And this may be commitment to depression. Commitment to survival. Commitment to winning someone over. Commitment to WINNING. Commitment to NO CHANGE EVER. Commitment to persistent negativity. Commitment to LOVE. Commitment to SERVICE.

Mars gets tired. There is only so much physical energy we can muster. We simply run out of fuel. We collapse. The body stops. Every long distance runner has to stop at some point. Every sex session comes to a close (with or without the little death).

AND THEN THERE IS PLUTO. (And I have a well-aspected Moon Pluto conjunction in my First House in my natal so I know a thing or two about not giving up.)

Unlike Mars, Pluto never tires. Pluto = regeneration. A well-aspected Pluto has an endless energy supply for whatever it craves (according to its placement in your birth chart or by transit). It’s a self-sustaining generator (unless its fuel is another person, which is easy to see in a chart).

Advice:

Don’t start any fights this week. Don’t poke the bear, don’t take the bait, etc. Avoid people who make you want to punch them in the head. Try to err on the side of playing dumb (smile through your gritted teeth) and don’t follow any ghosts into any abandoned warehouses and you should be just fine.

I Love You This Much Darkly: Venus Conjunct Jupiter In Scorpio (Nov 13th)

In my last blog post I told you that your love life was about to get interesting and it’s still true. In fact, it’s even more true because now it’s here. Venus entered the sign of sexy charismatic intense Scorpio this morning.

Who is this prediction true for? Everyone generally, but especially for the FIXED signs (Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, Aquarius) and I also want to say for the water signs (Cancer Pisces Scorpio) as well. And by interesting I mean just that: interesting.

AND next week we’ll have that Venus (love) Jupiter (big) conjunction and I wouldn’t be making a big deal of this if it wasn’t a big deal. I think this is a bigger deal than that Venus Mars conjunction we had in Virgo that everyone was talking about.

Will everyone experience a shot of romantic love or reconciliation or find THE ONE?

No.

But that only means you have to widen your idea of Venus. See through her — to other meanings.

Because she isn’t just about love between you and him or you and her but SELF LOVE. Valuing YOU. Valuing your own desire, your own passion, your own survival, your own ENERGY.

How do you feel about Scorpio and do you know why you feel that way?

"venus conjunct jupiter in scorpio"

It’s okay if you don’t know where Scorpio is in your chart but at the same time it’s not okay. I want you to know this stuff. I want you to know your chart because knowing your chart is knowing YOU. The transits still happen even if you don’t know where precisely this will align for you. You’ll feel a shot of love and desire AND POWER somewhere in your life so I hope you will be paying attention. Scorpio rules death and rebirth. Transformation, yes. 

"Venus in scorpio"

My story:

I can’t get away from Scorpio. My mother was a Scorpio. I’ll never be able to get away from Scorpio and nor do I want to. I’ve fallen in love with at least two of them. One of my favorite psychics, a dear friend, is Scorpio. I probably shouldn’t feel “safe” among them (I know better) and yet I need them and I help them. I’ve have plenty of Scorpio clients and I’ve seen the scorpion, eagle, and phoenix in action. I’ve also been on the receiving end of their ruthlessness. I’ve passed and failed the various Scorpio tests over the years. And I’m still here. Mostly :)

So your love life is about to get interesting, my friends, somewhere in your chart. As always, we can talk about this (and other important matters!). I’m not a Scorpio, but that First House Moon Pluto conjunction of mine gives me more than a touch of understanding of the emotionally intense, driven, determined, passionate, and sexual Scorpio.

Are you ready for this transit?
Are you in touch with your desire?
Are you obsessed with your desire?

You will be by the end of this transit :)

A Love Letter To The Pluto People

I’ve got so much on my mind. I’m not sure where to start. I’ve been all up in my social media the  last few days going on and on and on about PLUTO and power. And I’m thinking about energy work a.ka. MAGICK. And yes I do spell it with a K. Magick is the defense (or the offense) of the powerless. It’s more than that of course but hear me out –

There is a raw power us Pluto people have and this raw power can back up, can turn on itself. I have a moon pluto conjunction in my first house and thus the name of this blog. And honestly I don’t even want to define what I mean by PLUTO PEOPLE because I don’t want to leave anyone out but for sure Pluto conjunct your Sun or Moon and for sure Pluto in the first house and you have this power and it will f**k you up if you don’t know how to work with it, what to do with it. You can’t just let it sit there. It will wither and and stink and rot and people will hate you. You have to give your Pluto a purpose.

If you do not give your Pluto a purpose, a JOB, you WILL feel powerless (despite the power), become depressed FOR DECADES, continue victimhood year after year because you keep attracting and keeping the wrong people and situations as your mental health plummets – NOT that I blame you because maybe nobody ever told you and they don’t teach astrology in school but I want to show you that – YOU HAVE THIS POWER but you can’t just… la la la.. be NEPTUNE about it. You can’t be Neptune with Pluto. You can’t just hope for the best. You have to be aware of it, work with it, shape it. ACCEPT WHO YOU ARE and that people see your Pluto, respond to your Pluto. Be aware. Own it. Figure out how to behave in the world. You may attract sociopaths and even if you have been victimized PLEASE identify with another archetype as well. That’s fine. There is more than one card in the Tarot deck. There is more than one script for you to read. You may have been abused but you are MORE than that.
An idle Pluto is a sick Pluto.

I was talking to a client this morning with a first house Pluto and I swear we WILL SUFFER until we become ruthless. Ruthless with our faith and our magick and our refusal to die and by die I mean to accept less than our power requires. Anger is righteous, Anger is good. Let your Pluto stir you to an angry frenzy when you feel powerless and NOT to hurt anyone but to draw to you people and situations that will help you rise and rebirth like the Phoenix you are.

Does this make sense? Are you nodding your head? Do you know what I’m talking about?

You will feel uncomfortable if you work with this energy. If you decide to access your Pluto. You will get tired and need to take breaks. Believe it or not, Pluto in the first house, or Pluto Sun or Moon can be quite meek. YOU tuning in to your power, becoming your power, it won’t feel yummy good like Venus or spiritual like Neptune. You will feel like you are transgressing and you are (and yet you are supposed to) But honestly, for the Pluto person, I don’t know of any other way.

And I want to reassure you, again, that it’s OKAY to be angry and in fact, anger is a magickal seed here. I think without a seed of that anger your spells will fall flat and again I am NOT talking about curses or revenge or hurting people. I am talking about MANIFESTATION. What you want. And that your emotions are your energy and I think you need to realize how powerful that energy is.

I hope this helps

Hey A Little About The First House And If You Are Having The New Moon Eclipse There

moon conjunct pluto

What is the FIRST HOUSE of the astrology wheel about?

Conversation in the current class as I listed where each of us will have the new moon eclipse (Pisces 8 degrees)

and a few are having it in the First House and a gal was listing meanings and mentioned not being happy with them and then I started riffing trying to find THE WORD for me, for First House.

My Virgo Moon wants to be precise. And then I found it.

First House: more than ego or identity or ME ME ME.

The First House, planets or energy in the First gives you PRESENCE.

Then I said:

I have two planets there (my Moon Pluto conjunction)
It’s this very grounded presence in THIS WORLD
HERE I AM, say First House planets.

Do you have planets in the First House?

The Astrology of Failure: First House Pluto People, Part Two

"Mercury Opposition Pluto"
Pluto and Proserpina (Bernini)

Have you failed? Have you failed oftenDo you not consider it failure, but change? I have failed over and over in my life, failed to achieve things that I wanted very much. I was trying, I was doing. Maybe I was trying and doing the wrong way. Maybe this, maybe thatSo I often wonder what I can give this to, and these days I give it to Pluto, to Pluto in the First House Syndrome: the unstoppable transformation of the Self. Or feeling like you’ll die if you can’t get it right.

Failure may be another word for protection. Failure may be another word for not meant to be. Is there such a thing as the chart of a failure? Would you know it if you saw it? Do you believe in free-will? I believe in fate. 

Failure is harsh word, but it doesn’t bother me. I am drawn to it. I rather call it what it is. Call it deeply, in its own voice. Sing to it. What did you want? What did you receive instead? How did you leave? What do you want now? What is your life about?

About an hour ago, I wrote a post about Mercury opposition Pluto in today’s sky and I can feel that I’m there, still inside this transit. I have Mercury in Cancer in my natal chart, sextile Pluto (and Moon) and this energy is kicking up for me, kicking me to write about it. What transits do you crawl into? Where do you get stuck inside? 

Mercury and Pluto together go together :) In the myth, Mercury was the only God allowed to enter and exit Pluto-land so put these two in a room, and we’ve got a brotherhood, insight, a shared past of traveling through the dark, to the dark.

Mercury and Pluto in opposition push us to find the point between… the mind and the death of the mind as you know it. In other words, how will your thinking change? How does it need to change? What are you obsessed with? Who are you? Is it not the mind who self-defines? Well? 

It’s a quick transit. Mercury is quick-footed, but you can use it, you can use this time. Be Mercury inCancer. Go inside, inside the shell. Mercury is the mind. Cancer is the womb. Pluto is the birth of the idea.
