After several days without planetary aspects beyond the Luminaries (Sun and the Moon), Mars in Pisces sextiles Pluto in Capricorn.
This planetary combo provides us with enormous energy, mental power, and perseverance. If you are determined to succeed and get things accomplished, you will find that today things will roll forth with ease and you can achieve your goals.
This aspect, even though it is considered positive, often propels us to prove ourselves and exercise power. In my experience this can be as harmful as it is helpful. How many times have you found it easy to go down a destructive course, only to realize we have run off the track and smacked ourselves against the “dead ends” of life? Mars sextile Pluto can be the gasoline that ignites the flames that throws us off the track! We should attempt to check our motivations before we proceed, and understand that we can be quite unreasonable and expect a lot from ourselves.
The saving grace for today is the Moon’s transit through controlled Capricorn may help to limit the explosive tendencies of the Mars/Pluto aspect. Capricorn Moons are disciplined and endures through most circumstances. You may experience a strong sense of responsibility towards others, while you reach for a sense of structure and security in your life. So, as you see the train stop at the gate, the Capricorn moon gives us the ability to keep our feet firmly planted on the ground, while taking one step forward at a time.
