The final in a set of three squares between Jupiter and Pluto occurs today. Jupiter first formed a square with Pluto in November and then connected again in March. Today’s exact square is the last in the set, and we might throw ourselves into working on resolutions. This Jupiter-Pluto square stimulates our ambition and can fuel us up, but we may be overreaching. We feel that if we set our sights high enough, we can achieve anything. However, treading lightly now, while it may not come naturally, is advised as it is easy to stir up opposition or to put undue pressure on ourselves. We may take on too many interests, activities, or desires under this influence. Exaggerating our importance or power, either to ourselves or others, should be avoided. We can be overly attached to our opinions or beliefs. Trying to force our beliefs on others will only lead to frustration. The tendency now is to push too hard in general and to ignore time and energy limits or important details. Our plans are big, which can be a good thing as we realize we can do more. However, we may be expecting too much and the pressure we place on ourselves or others can lead to unnecessary stress. Relationships may be a driving force behind our ambitions, and we may be trying hard to prove ourselves.
As this is the final aspect of the set and as Jupiter moves towards a sextile to Saturn, exact later this month, we’re more inclined to moderate ourselves and get our expectations down to earth. The Moon spends the full day in practical, productive Capricorn.
