“Stop thinking, and end your problems.” Lao Tzu
With “mental” Mercury squaring “controlling” Pluto – Lord of the Underworld – there’s a possibility that we could become handcuffed by our own thinking today, especially shackled in by our fears or suspicions. The upside here: we also have a great opportunity to face down our fears now – or whatever it is that might be making us anxious or worried, as Mercury-Pluto can also potentially be very transformative.
For example, this morning, I went out into my backyard and tidied up the inside of my storage shed, an activity that, on the surface, may seem quite routine, to the average person. But, in my case, I had been postponing it for ages because I had been genuinely afraid that, in doing so, I might be assaulted, or held captive, by bitter black widows, poisonous copperheads, or maybe even worse: herculean-sized field mice! Granted, these kinds of threatening scenarios have never even come close to happening to me before, in real life, but it’s only probably because I’ve never had the guts to clean out the shed, until now! 🙂
Anyway, I”m very proud to report here, that I’ve completed the cleanup and I’m still fully physically intact, as far as I can tell. And, in fact, I never even came across any of those scary, creepy, crawly “Plutonian” creatures at all, that I just knew were going to be in there; each one, no doubt, seriously lusting over taking a draconian bite out of my captive flesh! In retrospect, all that worry, was simply in vain, which often is the case with worry. At the same time, I feel better about myself now, since I was finally able to take the bull by the horns and triumph over my inner scaredy cat – at least for the time being. Plus, I now have a clean shed, a reality I had been contemplating for who knows how long. Also, for the sake of full disclosure, I probably need to fess up: I was born with Mercury exactly squaring my Pluto! Can you tell?
Questions for Today: What is it costing you to hold on to fears? What will be the best thing that happens to you when you are no longer afraid? What is the path to serenity in your life?
