Sunday, JANUARY 12
Mercury aligns with Saturn and Pluto this morning, and Saturn and Pluto align in the sign of Capricorn toward midday. The Sun will follow suit tomorrow! The Saturn-Pluto conjunction is a rare event. While outer planet transits such as this one typically form three times in a set, this is a one-time pass, suggesting a concentrated force that gets the job done rather quickly. This influence prompts a strong need for reorganization and discipline. It demands hard work at remodeling and renovating our careers and goals or a particular area of our lives. In this area, we can experience a breakdown and/or the need to start over or rebuild, as well as intense ambition, great dedication, commitment, or perhaps obsession. We can feel driven to achieve and accomplish something. We should watch for abuse of power or living on fear, although moderate levels of fear/concern can be useful to motivate us to make improvements and to strengthen certain vulnerable areas of our lives. We can be ruthless about getting rid of problem areas. During this period, our fear of losing something (or everything) can be a powerful motivator, and the areas of our charts involved can be a clue to where we fear scarcity, chaos, or loss. Whereas Pluto seeks increased power and control through our undertakings, career, and reputation or status in the sign of Capricorn, Saturn seeks perfection, improved performance, and proof that we’re worth something. Saturn attempts to clean up some of the excesses or obsessions of Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto tears down, Saturn builds, and in this sense, it’s a powerful combination. The Moon spends the day in the sign of Leo.
