“Never mind overjoyed, just start with happy. Just get to a new place and put a thousand miles between you and your wrong impression.”
–Mark Mulcahy, “Hey Self Defeater”
Wednesday direct Pluto squares retrograde Uranus, linking up with Mercury in Libra to form a cardinal T-square. What is just important as what is happening there, is what is no longer happening. Neptune no longer aspects Mercury. So whatever lies are floating around, whatever illusions have covered reality, well, the air clears and things are stark. Stark does not mean bad; it just means bare and impossible to avoid, for better or worse.
With Wednesday’s Moon in Scorpio, its ruler, Pluto, is the focal point of the T-square. The Moon conjuncts Mars and Mars quincunxes Jupiter. Moon-Mars is hard and action-driven emotion, emotion-driven action. In Scorpio there’s a deep, psychological root.
The Moon joins Mars to square Venus bringing emotion into an already tense situation where what you want and what you need are at odds and there is a drive to act, on something. When you add in the Jupiter aspect, this can blow things out of proportion. Jupiter without reins in relation to Mars can be a freak-out. However, Jupiter at its highest is philosophical, wise, jovial (literally). You can get whipped up and allow that to “cause” you to act. Or you can wise up, use your higher mind and your principles to reign in your reactive state.
Make no mistake, people choose to act. There is no “made me do it.” Look to the higher side of Jupiter for your inspiration and you can rise above. I’d make a joke about the alternative and the slappings, but I’d hate to give anyone any self-defeating ideas!
Now here’s a caveat… if, in the course of human events, you find yourself in the position of giving a slap for The Greater Good, Scorpio Moon-Mars with Jupiter supports this. Sometimes you really do have to cut a bitch. It’s good to remember that it’s generally a rare situation and not go looking for trouble. Scorpio Mars can do this thing like nobody’s business and with Jupiter involved, someone somewhere may be handin’ down some justice.
