Who knows the true power of words? Mercury does, especially when Pluto is all up in his stuff–then we’ve got devastatingly serious energies propelling our most casual of utterances, turning them into agents of change, giving our ideas unintended (and often unrealized, by us) impact, and bringing a force to expression that can transform, alter, even destroy lives. Am I being too dramatic? Not really–Merc is in Pisces, bringing any and all un-channeled creativity to bear on our communications–so if you’re a frustrated Artist, or just plain frustrated, all that unfocused imagination can really dress things up, and not in a good way. But then again, that’s the wonder of the novile aspect: it offers the contact between Merc and Pluto the cleverest, smartest expression, the kind with an obvious touch of genius about it. That knife can cut both ways, though, offering brilliant ideas for change, or ingenious thoughts seeded with destructive purpose.

Remember, too, that the messages you receive, what you hear and read and sense, all have the engine of Pluto behind them. We can be as much impacted by what we are exposed to as we can be by communications aimed straight at us. That means, among other things, that the ideas, people, and material we surround ourselves with today will have an effect–and that effect can be psyche and world changing, given the power with which it arrives. especially if that portal is through the unconscious.

Happy Solar Return to those born with the Sun at 22 Aquarius! (this year in effect evening Pacific time of the 10th through evening of the 11th–see your birth chart for your Sun degree!) This year the instinctual nature is only enhanced by acceptance of your own power and by actions taken within any status you hold; this makes for some strong intuitive perceptions, if you are open to them and don’t look away from the facts just because you love that person or thing. You know what’s smart; now do what’s right. Expect significant tension later in the year, conflict between the head and the heart, that may be best resolved by considering the material needs of all involved.
