As the Pluto-Mars cycle is approximately two years in length, the previous Pluto-Mars opposition, occurring in the spring of 2017, observed the abuse and torture involved in the Abu Ghraib prison scandal. The subsequent square (or ninety degree angular relationship) between these planets corresponded with the Belson school siege in southern Russia, a catastrophe that resulted in the deaths of over three hundred individuals. There are certainly positive and constructive manifestations of the Pluto-Mars combination; however, the negative valence of the pairing can be barbaric and sadistic, bringing forth the worst in human behavior. This current Pluto-Mars opposition is briefly, yet potently, joined by Mercury, as Mercury forms a t-square alignment with the other two planets. A "war of words" can be the consequence of this configuration, where opposing parties engage in tough talk and verbal attacks.
If the Pluto-Mars configuration displays the capacity for humanity to engage in brutality, physical aggressiveness, and power through force, the Jupiter-Uranus combination allows us to witness our facility for understanding our world, for creative innovation, and for social emancipation. As Jupiter retrogrades in motion, it forms a trine, or one hundred and twenty degree alignment, with Uranus, reaching exactitude in May (and once again in August, as Jupiter's orbital motion goes direct in mid-year). Although the trine may be less discernable in manifestation than the conjunction or opposition of these two planets, it is still apparent in its correlations, particularly to the well-informed. Opening us to future potentials and to our capacity for vision, the Jupiter-Uranus archetypal coupling dilates the portals for new worlds to shine through. Born with Jupiter and Uranus in opposition, Einstein purportedly stated, "Your imagination is your preview of life's coming attractions." Such a quote captures the farsighted creativity associated with Jupiter and Uranus in combination. For a brilliant survey of the cultural expressions associated with this planetary combination, read the section "Cycles of Creativity and Expansion" in Richard Tarnas' recently published, Cosmos and Psyche.
As Saturn goes direct in motion early in the month, it edges closer to its exact opposition to Neptune in late August of this year. Thus, we may safely say that the crest of the wave of this alignment has authoritatively commenced. In order to understand the expression of this complex arrangement, we can take our cue from the signs of the previous Saturn-Neptune opposition, occurring in the early 1970s. At this time the U.S. began a slow but steady de-escalation of its involvement in Vietnam. The height of the social protest and the peak of the actual conflict were over. A collective mood of disillusionment in the war, and war in general, began to descend on the populace. Movies such as MASH, Hearts and Minds, and Johnny Got His Gun reflected this collective disposition, exposing the irony, pointlessness, and absurdity of war. As we now approach the apex of the current Saturn-Neptune opposition, the same sentiment, motifs, and themes can be easily appreciated. We might suggest that we are in the territory of "same song, second verse." Saturn-Neptune combinations are not known particularly for being action-oriented but are more known for slow and steady disintegration of structures, systems, and movements. We might infer that such subtle erosion is necessary so that new structures may take form.
Begin by having a special Valentine's Day type of date during the next few days. It happens a week early, maybe more, so consider this a test run for the scenario you're creating. Rehearsal is important. Rehearsing with at least one of your lovers is a brilliant idea.
Even if it's with a lover that you're not terribly attracted to, it still will benefit both of you enormously to practice before the big day. Maybe that should be -- in true Sagittarius fashion -- "Practice, practice, practice." It all starts with a date, some manner of romantic interlude that you concoct.
Despite the fact that the smallest planet in the heavens, Mercury, is in apparent retrograde motion -- and despite the fact that this makes for a frantic hustle before Valentine's Day -- there's still a pervasive sense of calm in Capricorn.
Instead of turning into a whirling dervish of wasted energy, calm yourself. Find your center and then proceed forward. The sense of calm, the level head that you display in the midst of this activity, makes you ever so much more attractive.
Be calm and centered -- and watch as that special lover fails to resist your Capricorn charms. You can have it any way you want it, but you have to start with the appearance of serenity.
You want to tell your lover precisely what you want him or her to do to you. You want to tell your beloved what really turns you on. You would like to sit down and spend some time gazing into each other's eyes, the windows on the soul. You want to explain in lovely graphic detail just what turns you on so much.
You can, in fact, give this sort of verbal exercise a whirl -- but with the apparent motion of Venus slowing down, you'll find a little action is better than thousands and thousands of words. That does not suggest that you not try to explain what it is that you desire. It just means that you might want to try some demonstrations to go with your explanations.
You feel a peculiar sense of ease this week. It's as if you've put on a little weight, and frankly, that extra couple of pounds looks good on you. You carry it well. It pads you in just the right places.
Now, in your individual situation, the source of your newfound ease might not actually be weight. It could be from any number of developing situations, but there's still a good chance for you to feel happy, contented, and rather comfortable with some new addition to your life.
See if there's a way to incorporate your lover into this feeling of grace. Figure a way to clue him or her in on your sense of understanding.
It's time to flip back through your special black book, the one with all the old names and addresses. Perhaps you use a star system or something similar to denote the names that you want to remember. This is a quick trip down memory lane, though, not a long and maudlin journey. As soon as you hit upon an old favorite, pick up the phone and see what happens.
It only takes a little jingle (or buzz, or ring, or whatever your phone does) in order to get that old flame built back up to its properly roaring proportions. Look back through the pages of your life and see whether there is a new command performance waiting for you.
Good loving requires a little effort. Now is the time to lay groundwork and shore up the foundations with that old flame. Monday, drop a card in the mail; Tuesday, maybe an email; Wednesday, another short note, just to say hello.
By the time the weekend arrives, you will have rekindled the old friendship. Since none of the usual dance is necessary, you can skip the problems and move right on to the good parts. Enjoy this old love for what he or she is. Celebrate the finer points and try not to belabor the past too much.
Get out your schedule book and cross everything out that does not include you having a good time. There's no excuse for not having fun right now. Instead of worrying about work and being preoccupied with employment matters, put pleasure at the top of your list.
Everything else is secondary. Venus in Aries, the sign that is opposite Libra, means that pleasure comes first. Not every event will go just as you plan it, but keep to the idea that pleasure is most important, and your strategy should be clear.
Two rather disparate forces are at work in your Scorpio love life. One suggests that a heated, passionate encounter is more important. The other suggests that a more leisurely and drawn-out seduction process is better.
Maybe the best idea is to combine the two. What starts out at a slow pace, taking forever to heat up and looking like the cliched watched-pot-on-the-stovetop, suddenly changes pace in an unexpected twist.
Instead of complicating this, just be prepared -- but start out as slowly as possible. Plan on building to that climax over several days, not just one night.
That loving feeling is everywhere by now. This is the result of Venus's entry into the sign of the Ram. This means that despite other less friendly planetary movements, a pervasive sense of well-being engenders a love-struck look in your eyes.
Instead of worrying about the meandering of Mercury, concentrate on the love of your life. In some cases, such as when there's no apparent love of your life in front of you, flip back through the pages of your mind. Look at old flames that were successful relationships.
Now is not a time to dwell on what went wrong, but rather to celebrate the good. Doing so promises to raise ideas that concern your current situation. What you want most, as you get ready for St. Valentine's Day, is right in front of you. Now that you know that, take advantage of the knowledge. Show that person what you want to do.
Thoughtful action is nice. Careful orchestrated moves like a card or a single rose as a warm-up for Valentine's Day are nice. A look at the positions of the planets, however, suggests that a little less talk and little more action may be a better idea.
This is less a time to plot and plan than it is a time to show your lover what you really want for the upcoming holiday. Planting a big, wet, sloppy, deeply probing kiss on your intended's lips works well. Make it a kiss full of promise, one of those long ones -- a kiss that can seem to stretch into eternity, with just a hint of what you can do with your tongue.
This isn't a casual brush of lips against lips. It's more of a wet, passionate, and sloppy sort of kiss. This is no garden-variety peck on the cheek. A kiss like this, full of sensual Taurus promise, goes a lot further toward getting what you want right now, not next week.
Don't let Mercury's errant ways confuse you. Rather than letting the little planet that seems to cause so much trouble for the Gemini love life get in your way, why not put its confusion to work for you?
A cascade of flowers, a torrent of love notes scribbled on the back of cards, a raft of roses -- all of this works for you. While you have difficulty getting that one right word across to your Valentine Day's target, you can always make up for the problem with quantity.
While most people prefer quality instead of quantity, given the upcoming holiday, extra effort counts. Woo with words, if nothing else. See if you can win that way.
The soft and sensuous curves of the Cancer psyche are off in fantasyland. While the real world seems to grind to a halt, all you can dream about is a different kind of grinding -- and one that is more pleasurable than your daily work.
Make the most of this by fabricating an elaborate tale regarding what you can do for the particular person, should he or she give you an affirmative answer. Look for this opening. Prince or Princess Charming is not long gone, and there's a hole in that person's armor.
You can exploit that weakness, given half a chance. You will get that chance, so be ready with the tale to woo your special individual out of that armor -- and into amor, completely.
"A large fire often comes from a small spark." (Danish proverb) Happy birthday!
If today is your birthday, you never back down from a real challenge. You're willing to approach difficult situations and find creative solutions.
Love: You'll be very attracted to someone who lives far away or who travels a lot. This could be a special Internet friend. The intellectual rapport between you and this person will be strong, and you'll have many things in common. You'll enjoy the great amount of affection your special person will bestow upon you this year.
Career/Finances: Your work will offer you great opportunities to express your creativity. However, a certain amount of routine tasks will be necessary. Take great care with the important documents you are responsible for. You'll be able to afford that big-ticket item you've been wanting for so long.
"A little fire that warms is better than a big fire that burns." (Irish proverb) Happy birthday!
If your birthday is today, you are spontaneous and enjoy spur-of-the-moment activities more than those that are planned.
Love: Your significant other will seem more withdrawn or unavailable than usual. It has more to do with this person's health or stressful daily conditions than with you. You can improve the situation by being nurturing and helpful. A few loving words from you will open a floodgate of good communication.
Career/Finances: You're definitely on the right career track. You'll be given many new job responsibilities this year, with a resulting increase in income. It's the perfect time to dust off your budget. Otherwise you'll be very tempted to make impulsive purchases that you don't really want or need.
"He who warms himself by the fire must first put up with the smoke." (Serbo-Croatian proverb) Happy birthday!
If you are celebrating a birthday today, you have an upbeat attitude and always try to find the positive side to any situation.
Love: Your partner will make an important decision this year involving his or her career. This will affect your living situation. The two of you will enjoy traveling and studying together, as well as a very active social life. Your deep friendship with this special person will grow even deeper throughout the year.
Career/Finances: Your employer will have high expectations for your job performance. This can be either invigorating or stressful, depending on your other responsibilities. You'll have opportunities to earn an excellent income, both from your paid work and other investments.
"It is easy to kindle fire on an old hearth." (Welsh proverb) Happy birthday!
If today is your birthday, you have a sunny disposition, but also a serious side that you seldom reveal to other people.
Love: You'll put a lot of effort into making your loved one's daily environment pleasant and stimulating. Communications between you will be lively. You'll have fun with the intellectual sparring and leisure-time activities of this relationship. Your partner will be shy sometimes, but you'll enjoy taking the initiative in love.
Career/Finances: Your innovative new ideas will be highly valued at your place of work. However, you may at times feel unfairly treated by your employer, who will be under stress and not always in top form. You'll really be pleased with your income this year and find many interesting ways to spend it.
"The fire burns brightest on one's own hearth." (Danish proverb) Happy birthday!
If today is your special day, you are forthright in your speech and actions. You can be counted on to tell the truth, even if it hurts.
Love: If you're still searching for love, you'll find it soon and very close to home, too. A committed relationship may feel threatening when your partner becomes more independent. Allow your loved one some personal space for self-development.
Career/Finances: You'll be in a very strong position at your place of work this year, and will assume even more authority. Family members and older coworkers will be your biggest cheerleaders. Your total earnings for the year will be excellent, but your expenses will be high also. Continue to save and invest for the future.
"The fire that does not warm me shall never scorch me." (English proverb) Happy birthday!
If today is your special day, you are physically active, and enjoy participating in active sports. You love being out-of-doors and in the Sun.
Love: Your significant other will be a source of real joy. He or she will be a good helpmate; someone you can count on to put your needs first. The two of you will make a big joint purchase, and perhaps take an extended vacation together. Your families will be increasingly important to you as a couple.
Career/Finances: You'll accept some interesting responsibilities and acquire many new skills this year. You'll be vaguely dissatisfied with your job, but stay with it because of your good income. Your earnings will be variable, but overall, quite good. It's important to save more when your earnings are higher.
"The most covered fire is always the most glowing." (French proverb) Happy birthday!
If today is your birthday, you are very discerning and have a good eye for detail. You make artistic statements with materials other people overlook.
Love: Your partner is so devoted to you that you may take this person for granted. However, should you wound your loved one's pride, he or she will become withdrawn or inaccessible. Show your appreciation at every opportunity and you'll be rewarded with a very loving relationship.
Career/Finances: You'll be more driven to succeed than usual. The potential for good earnings will be your primary motivation, but you will also enjoy many on-the-job adventures. Invest in your future by getting additional education or training. Avoid all speculative investments and spontaneous purchases.
