The Moon is in Capricorn.
Jupiter in Libra squares retrograde Pluto in Capricorn.
The Moon is in mature Capricorn. The Capricorn Moon does its best to keep a level head and reasoning on the table but it will be a challenge. Do your best today to maintain some balance and maturity without letting the darker traits of Capricorn surface like pessimism and over ambitiousness. Maintain your integrity!!! Power struggles can get exacerbated right now, especially with this Jupiter/ Pluto square. Today instead, focus on standing centered in your own power and space and have others meet you half way.
Jupiter in Libra squares retrograde Pluto in Capricorn. This is the final in a set of three squares between Jupiter and Pluto that begun in November 2016. We might throw ourselves into working on resolutions or finding harmonious answers.
The positive aspect of this square is that it has the ability to stimulate our inner ambitions.The energy fuels us up to set our goals high,high enough that we can achieve anything. This square basically stirs up and creates friction and tension between the planet of transformation and healing, and the planet of expansion! We now see our desire to transform and evolve and realize its not that far to grasp.
However, this Jupiter-Pluto square also stimulates a part in us that may be overreaching. We may take on too many interests, activities, change and desires under this planetary influence. We can place too much pressure and importance on what we want to achieve ignoring our energy and our limits burning the candle at both ends.
The key to managing the energies is to ease up on the pressure we place on ourselves and others, and not to stir up others with our strong point of view and stand point. As we can find the urge to exaggerate our importance or power we hold, either to ourselves or others.
Have a good weekend.

Pluto stations retrograde in Capricorn.
Mercury Retrograde moves back into Aires.
Mercury Retrograde moves backwards into Aires today. Some may feel the shift from earthy,grounded Taurus to fast pace, fiery Aires. With Mercury back in Aries, our communications will be more direct, assertive and we become very head strong and dynamic! However as much as being a little more assertive can be good thing we can also be aggressive, overly fire, angry and dominating too. Finding ways to breath and calm down in times of anger so that we are communicating and thinking directly but not violently or aggressively is key to getting through today. Pay attention to the difference between assertiveness and aggression.
One of the highlights of this Mercury retrograde journey especially for me who is going through some major life changes is its triple conjunction with Uranus during the coming weeks with the 2nd interaction taking place soon. Prepare and brace yourself for shocking, all empowering, or sudden information being illuminated and coming to Light.
Pluto stations retrograde in the sign of Capricorn today, and thus making the Lord of the Underworld and planet of death and rebirth the most powerful planet in the sky! Pluto’s intense and complex energy hangs heavy in the air until September 28th, 2017 when it moves direct. Over the next few days/weeks surrounding Pluto’s station can be especially intense, and I bet you can all feel it in the air, something dark and stirring. So be aware of how you use and dominate your power, and stay clear of power/control dynamics and manipulation as we may be re-assessing how we use our power.
Empowerment Vs over powering is the theme and my caution during this time. Any conflict that you may occur now is worth examining , instead of seeing the negatives, ask yourself what the message is in these challenges you face during this phase.
Have a great day!
