Mars, the planet of motivation, aligns with optimistic, expansive Jupiter and transformational Pluto today. For many of us, this may translate into an urge for an “extreme makeover” in some aspect of our lives. The desire for self-renewal is likely very keen now and may equate with our wanting to take some sort of bold, assertive action to bring it about. In some cases, too, this turnaround may come about for us without any seeming effort on our part, although if we go below the surface of things we may see that we have indeed been instrumental in bringing it about.
Simultaneously, we may also need to be more mindful and respectful of honoring other people’s boundaries now in our quest to get ahead. Otherwise, some fallout could ensue if we cross over the lines uninvited. Sometimes, on the shadow side, Mars-Pluto coincides with a clash of wills and power struggles, especially if we perceive we are being threatened or feel like we are being ignored. “I teach people how to treat me by what I will allow.” Stephen Covey

Interestingly, Pluto rules not only debt, taxes, and other people’s monies, but also contractions and implosions. With Mars exactly squaring Pluto today, sometimes with this aspect our perception of what is “not working” or “broken” in our lives can become a major point of focus. Too, we often become much more cognizant of the need to take corrective measures to transform or overhaul things (the “rebirth” side of Pluto) under this influence. Also, Mars-Pluto, metaphorically, is often likened to a surgical procedure in that we remove what is diseased or toxic.
Since we also have Mars trining “big picture” Jupiter today, a very upbeat, visionary influence, we are reminded to keep an eye on our long-term vision now. Mars-Jupiter can be a phenomenal aspect for motivating us in a very self-confident manner, even if things around us may temporarily seem a little bleak or dissonant. “The reason birds can fly and we can’t is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.” J.M.
