Transit Pluto square natal Mercury - grief?
Hey, everyone, hope you are all well!
Has anyone experienced transit Pluto square their natal Mercury? It's just coming into orb for me and I seem to be falling to pieces. I've read this transit more than likely will transform the way you think, communicate etc, but after 12 months of awful experiences, all I seem to be feeling is grief (I am normally very strong in the face of adversity - I feel it strengthens my resolve).
The only other major transit I have is Uranus just passing my IC, and I can certainly feel its' effects - losing my home of 20 years, beloved critters dying, basically everything that makes 'home' is disappearing fast, but I am coming to terms with that.
Is this just a cumulative effect, or is Pluto pulling at my heartstrings? In all honesty, I have never felt this bleak, and as a Sun conjunct Pluto native, this is baffling to me 😬
I had Pluto squaring a 4 planet stellium with Mercury being the last planet. It was the worst of the 4 that it squared. I think it brought all the other aspects "to mind". Pluto is subterranean but when it hits Mercury things that were happening under the surface erupted. Therapy helped me.
I'm sorry you are having such a hard time. I'm sending my best wishes.
I had Pluto in Capricorn square my Mercury in Libra. It was horrible. Shadow side of gossip... harm to my reputation. Unrecoverable... for years or maybe you never recover.
Possible doom thinking. Deep conversation... but really, the Libra part was the main focus. Social death and I mean, stomped on and ground down into the dirt.
I also hobbled around at this time. I was crippled... Mercury rules walking.
I could on but let's just say it was very slow, very deep and very painful. It did change me. I rarely socialize anymore. My Mercury is conjunct Mars and I'm just sick of pulling knives out of my back.
Really good thread. Thank you.
I had Pluto and Saturn squaring Mercury in my 6th. I was a foreigner working outside of my home country and had a jealous co-worker that was out to get me, gossiped behind my back. It made it very difficult as I was already odd-person out and was trying my absolute best, but she was determined to tarnish me. I was very lonely, isolated in a neighborhood that I didn't like... no friends, no social life. I was forced to be alone with my thoughts and was heartbroken by a man from the town I left to come to this job. I struggled mentally to make closure and you'd think this sort of space (with no distractions) would accelerate the process, but it felt very dragged out & like a sort of mental prison. It was a really weird, difficult year. As a creative person, I was super stifled and didn't have the outlet to rely on as usual. Oddly the pandemic lifted me out of it and gave me an excuse to leave the job early to go back home. I felt like I had already been in quarantine for 6mo. so for me, it didn't feel any different. In fact, I was just grateful to be home.
Honestly, I got used to the energy eventually, and by the time they were moving off of my Mercury, I was already in a much better place. Plus Ive had Neptune Saturn to contend with so I didnt notice its effects much anymore.
