My Sign Says

The Stars Have No Time for Idle Chit-Chat

It is well-known in the astrology community that Mercury can give us the gift of gab! It is also no secret that Aries energizes our social skills! Throw intellectual Aquarius and charismatic Capricorn into the mix and you are in for a day full of interesting conversations!

Mercury Is Trine Pluto at 9:07 AM

As we get ready for our day, Mercury in the sign of Virgo forms a trine with Pluto in the sign of Capricorn. This transit cuts through some of the dreaminess of Pisces, but maintains the depth. Small talk is of no interest to you right now, and neither is socialization for the sake of socialization. You want to investigate, analyze, and philosophize.

You may draw people of similar interests to you under this transit—it could even be the start of a karmic relationship. You’re seeking out people who can talk about the nitty-gritty and the uncomfortable.

It’s also an ideal time for psychoanalysis, a psychic reading, or a past life regression. You might also want to explore your own psychic abilities through divination or dream journaling.

The Moon Is Square Pluto at 1:58 PM

Around lunchtime, the moon in reckless Aries forms a square with Pluto in grounded Capricorn. This transit causes our impulsiveness to butt up against a bit of introspection, and that can lead to some discomfort. It might also lead to some compulsive or destructive behavior, so don’t be shocked if long-buried wounds or traumas are pulled to the surface.

It’s quite possible that some of these wounds have to do with family history. Be on the lookout for emotional power struggles with family members or partners, or reliving past events to feed the grudge monster.

You might wake up in a funk after some uncomfortable dreams. This isn’t fun by any means, but it’s very important not to bury things even further. You need to find a way for that energy to move through you. Talk to a friend, get your thoughts down on paper, or seek out the counsel of a professional. And keep in mind that this is only a temporary transit.

The Moon Is Sextile Jupiter at 5:24 PM

Later, the moon in Aries forms a sextile with Jupiter in Aquarius. The energy of the day is shifting. This is a social aspect, and you may be longing for more fun and lighthearted interactions than have been available in the recent past. Luckily, all of that seems to be turning around as of late.

Today, you’ll have an urge to reconnect with old friends and family you’ve lost touch with. It’s a warm and welcoming transit for all relationships in our lives, but specifically those with women.

You’re feeling open, honest, and a bit vulnerable with your feelings. Making new connections will be easy. You’re feeling generous with your time, energy, and resources, and might look for group activities meant to help others.
