Mercury Pluto conjunct is back. T’is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness. And not to smoke, obviously.
Mercury in orb of Pluto since mid-December and until early February has been a light into much of our darkness. It has illuminated dysfunctional thinking and shadowy areas of our psyche. They are shadowy for a reason you might think, with a surge of irritation. But with the Messenger God aligned to Under Worldly Pluto for so long, you’ll want to talk to your Shadow Selves.
Mercury usually goes over Pluto once – it takes a day. This is a much longer haunting/exorcism.
So the first exact hit was December 20, and the next one is in just a few hours from now (as i type this), and then there is another hit on the 30th. It is a process.
Think about what suddenly flared up within you mid-December; the sudden and drastic decisions that felt fantastic. You shone your torch/candle (a.k.a. consciousness) into some dark, dank corner and whatever lurked there scuttled away.
The motif of the person going back into the haunted house to get something or for one last confrontation with the forces of darkness is a cliche of suspense thrillers. But after Mercury moves off Pluto for the third time in late Jan, you are done. No looking back. No detour down to the ghostly well at the bottom of the graveyard.
More details in the Horoscopes of course. But regardless of your sign/personal chart, going with this process and clearing out your possessed basement or whatever will feel SO good when it’s done. You will be immune to energy thieves and Energy Vampires for a start. And, no more Shadow Selves trying to subliminally dictate your process.
Those blasts of “fuq it” in mid-December are vital to this banishment and reset process. So how are you doing with this?
