Jupiter’s on-and-off square with Pluto comes exact for the second time this weekend, challenging us to examine and transform our deeply held beliefs about life and our purpose here in this reality. This can also bring up some major issues involving power dynamics in relationships— a theme currently being echoed throughout the retrograde transit of Venus through Aries.
Friday (3/31): Jupiter squares Pluto for the 2nd time with Jupiter in retrograde this time around. This transit brings up issues surrounding the use and abuse of power in a way that challenges us to find a point of resolution. There can be a tendency under this influence to exploit others for personal gain, which can prove incredibly destructive in the long-term. Now is the time to focus on creating better balance in our relationships, especially ones in which we hold positions of authority over others. On the flip side, we also have the opportunity to recognize the ways in which others are exploiting us. This energy can feel both intense and expansive, as we break free from old structures and hierarchies that no longer serve us, allowing us to take back our individual and collective power to move into a truly expansive place of greater harmony and balance.
Mercury moves out of fast and fiery Aries into chill, comfortable Taurus today where it will station to go retrograde in just over a week on April 9th. Mercury in Taurus slows down our thoughts and allows our communications to become more grounded, concise and to-the-point. During Mercury’s extended transit through Taurus, we will have ample opportunity to focus on our finances and material comforts in order to create a better foundation for ourselves moving forward.
Saturday (4/1): No major planetary aspects today. The moon is in the playful, communicative sign of Gemini today, peaking our curiosities and allowing ourselves some much needed time to socialize and connect.
Sunday (4/2): Today retrograde Venus will move backward into Pisces. Here the focus shifts from personal self-interest in relationships to a more collective mindset. Relationships take on a more loving, compassionate nature and emotional connections deepen at this time. The moon is in the emotionally nurturing sign of Cancer and the focus moves inward.
