The only new perfecting aspect today is a Mars sesquiquadrate to Pluto; sounds like a recipe to get angry, to be enraged, doesn’t it? That would be the knee-jerk expression of this, to become enraged and to act out–but this could also be our cue to act differently than we have before, to change our response pattern completely–and doing so at this time would make those changes permanent, easy to access the next time our sense of outrage is stimulated. There’s also the possibility we may go to deep, dark places, responding destructively, or, when we come up for air, resolving to transform the situation, to make it over for good. Efforts to lessen the influence of the ego, and to moderate a hair-trigger temper could also be successful. We are likely to find our anger focused on something Capricornian, on something related to institutions, the establishment, to rules and restrictions, to our own or others’ judgements, to things solid, especially assets or real property, or on something we’ve relied on, that has until now offered us security, containment, support, or a sense of our own authority. We seek action in an effort to define, account for, minimize, or otherwise collect what’s due us (Mars in Virgo). The overall goal is to be aware of our rage, and then to do something constructive and meaningful about it.
Today’s word image is smoke. As they say, where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Where in your life are you seeing or maybe just sensing ‘psychic smoke’–and will you find and put out the fire, before it gets destructive, or are you just going to let it burn?
