“Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.” – Carl Jung
This Wednesday morning, Mercury is stationing direct in practical Capricorn (8:12 am) – the sign which governs career, responsibilities, reputation, and self-mastery. This suggests that some of the ideas, plans, or directives pertaining to these areas – that were maybe creatively fermented or concocted during Mercury’s three-week retrograde (or re-ordering) phase – will now begin to pick up some momentum or traction in the days and weeks ahead, allowing us to make forward progress in our lives.
Too, as thinker Mercury seemingly changes its direction in the sky now, it is thought that it is best to refrain from making any key decisions, for the moment, so as to allow some time for the planet to get re-oriented, a bit, to its surroundings.
The Sun and Pluto are also having their annual conjunction in Capricorn today (9:44 am), which can sometimes seem to rachet up the level of intensity in our lives as well as our surroundings. The Sun governs our ego, will, and sense of power, while Pluto symbolizes control and transformation.
While this aspect can manifest in various ways, sometimes it appears to coincide with a burning desire now for what could be regarded as wanting to implement extreme makeovers, or radical do-overs, sensing that what currently exists around us is either outworn or decaying and will perish soon without some kind of intervention – which may or may not exactly be the case – although it may certainly feel that way to us now. On a psychological side, this aspect tends to acquaint us with our shadow side, including our fears or possible manipulative impulses. Overall, this influence can often be a cathartic type of experience as it may motivate us to face down perhaps what scares us, or makes us feel uncomfortable, so that we can maybe make some changes that allow us to more confidently step into our own power.
“Always do what you are afraid to do.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
