“I take pleasure in my transformations. I look quiet and consistent, but few know how many women there are in me.” Anais Nin
We have all seen dramatic “before” and “after” makeover shots that we marvel over. Today, we have a somewhat comparable offering in the guise of galvanizing Mars sextile rebirthing Pluto. This planetary influence is often paired with what could be described as game-shifting scenarios.
Too, on the eve of this aspect, we have heard about several noteworthy, altering type events in the collective, including Iraq’s Prime Minister Maliki announcing that he was going to step down from his post. Also yesterday, Rob Manfred was chosen as the new Major League Baseball Commissioner, one of the most powerful positions in sports. On a more sentimental note, Sir Paul McCartney entertained patrons with a concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, likely the last major event to be held at the 50-year-old stadium, which has been earmarked for demolition (Pluto). The Beatles also performed their last concert together in the U.S. at Candlestick, back in 1966, so it was a bit of deja vu for Paul.
Pluto’s ray is often associated with events that affect the masses. It is also linked with power and control issues. Too, sometimes what has been hidden is finally exposed or brought to light. Additionally, I would like to interject here that, often while transformational situations are occurring, we will not really know their full impact, until much later. For instance, under this Mars-Pluto influence, we could possibly meet someone who will later turn out to play a pivotal role in our lives, even though, in the present moment, we have no clue about this.
Also, the Moon has been in “pioneering” Aries, the last couple days, a fire sign that normally adds more momentum to our affairs, as it fuels our desire to take action on what we want. Today, however, Luna shifts into steady, stabilizing Taurus, and we’re more focused on preserving our resources and energy (11:58 am EDT). Intellectual Mercury also leaves proud, creative Leo for practical, analytical Virgo (12:44 pm EDT). This sign change should help to boost our problem-solving skills. Mercury remains in Virgo until September 1st.
