A testing energy is in play this week as Mars squares Pluto from 21 degrees Aries to Capricorn. Your intention is everything now and can imbue you with a strong will to change and transform a situation in your life. But, the challenge is real as subconscious energy is bubbling up and the shadow side of self is activated. Pluto represents the primordial, soul records, karma and redemption. When operating unconsciously the interface is tangled, angry, demanding, harsh and sometimes violent.
Strong and deep urges for control and domination may proliferate this week. Aries seeks independence, self-directed action and freedom. When Mars in Aries meets up in square with Pluto in Capricorn the themes of raw and unfiltered power is laid bare. Tension is palpable pulling and stretching, seeking release, renewal and regeneration. Some situations and relationship dynamics have passed the "sell by date," and feels stinky, decayed and unsustainable.
It is a creative time to be aware of the criminal within and the predator without. How you work with this energy is the test. Conscious intention, replete with the "do no harm" message, and married with the need for transformation is the goal to shoot for.
If you push, expect a strong and countering push back. Be aware of your own manipulation tactics as well as others. Remember, Mars needs conscious awareness or he acts out thoughtlessly, angrily and harmfully. Action both creates Karma and clears Karma.
Be aware of your ability to choose your: responses, self-care approach, self-protection and real need for change. Saturn and Pluto will conjunct in January 2020 at this very degree point - 21 Capricorn, pay attention to world, government and power themes this week as more will manifest into January 2020.
Be Safe ~~~
Much Love to You~
