Even though it’s the weekend, we may still want to challenge ourselves to do a bit of heavy “mental lifting” today as we have the nurturing Moon now eruditely scurrying through curious Gemini (at 3:20 am) and Gemini’s ruler, intellectual Mercury, exactly squaring off with probing, investigative Pluto (at 3:36 am). This more intense, often obsessive Mercury-Pluto energy is especially good for detecting or ferreting out secret information/covert messages, exposing hidden weaknesses, or possibly uncovering hidden motivations. On the flip side, it could also raise awareness of privacy concerns. This astrological aspect is also sometimes linked with jaw-dropping, shocking plot twists.
Communicator Mercury also governs our speech or words and paired with riveting Pluto now our words may carry more dramatic impact or have an extra bite or zing to them. We may also be much more emotionally reactive now with respect to what we see, hear, or read, especially if we perhaps find the subject matter repugnant or repulsive or taboo, to some degree, which this type of cosmic energy also often seems to elicit. More extremist viewpoints may also capture our attention, at this time, or be put before us in the spotlight in some manner. Also, on the shadow side, there can be more of a tendency towards bullying, ridiculing, or jockeying for power or position, including possibly manipulating information as an attempt to further or strengthen our own self-interests.

Too, Pluto is associated with purging or removing whatever is outworn or expired and aligned with mental Mercury it could be that this is an excellent time to undertake efforts to rid or eradicate our psyches of some of what we might call “garbage-type thoughts” (our debilitating fears or miscellaneous prejudices, for instance) that all too often clutter or detract from our more wondrous sense of spirit or well-being or interfere with our ability for connectedness with others. Mercury-Pluto aspects are commonly linked with seeking psychotherapy or otherwise wanting to heal or fix what’s seemingly broken inside of us or around us.
Pluto is also stationing retrograde today (at 2:54 pm) suggesting that we are now subtly shifting our focus or attention away from the more concrete manifestations of outer transformation to the invisible realm of inner transformation, including presumably beginning to more seriously process or decode now the philosophical meaning or psychological impact of what has perhaps recently been drastically altered or reconfigured in our lives. Too, it’s always the deeper meaning that we assign to things that ultimately determine their lasting impact upon us. On another level, Pluto stationing retrograde may indicate a pullback of power or support. Pluto will stay retrograde until October 4.
