Mercury into Aquarius: Paving the way for Pluto 🌚⚡






What does 2023 hold for you?











(S hemisphere below)



This week Mercury the planetary god representing perception, communication & synthesis makes his annual conjunction with Pluto/Hades. We know that their tone is serious as befits the sort of things going on in the world right now. Mercury is the messenger of whomever he is with, as well as chthonic psychopomp, non plussed by return trips to the underworld.

The shadow is represented by Pluto and is composed of the murky darkness of our collective and individual subconscious and unconscious minds.


The funk is where we find the gold, but we must be brave enough to go looking and be honest about what we find, vs only being skilled at identifying it in others.


Mercury has this intense convo with Pluto early in the week and then traverses the final degrees into Aquarius, breaking the ice for Pluto’s closely following ingress in March.


Pay close attention this week to any messages that appear in a way that they cannot be ignored. This week is a microcosm of the next 22 months which will feature Pluto moving back and forth across the final degrees of Cap and into the early degrees of Aquarius.


The journey is where we identity and honor the time honored traditions, customs, and beliefs of our human culture without being albatrossed by things just because “it’s the way we’ve always done them”.


Of course we don’t want to toss out any babies with their proverbial bath water, and yet the bath water of the last 247 years has become quite fetid. So Mercury and very soon Pluto will be boldly and bravely stepping into the winds of change.

Where have we fallen asleep at the wheel? It’s definitely time to wake up. More on this as we get closer to the ingress at equinox, but suffice it to say each person on the planet right now is going to be rung like a bell who’s purpose is to WAKE US UP and encourage us to become the best version of humans we can become to assist the rebirthing of humanity that we all came for.

Monday February 6 We leave the feline Full Moon in our rearview mirror and move into a lunar opposition with Saturn, who’s asking us to cool our jets and check in with any evident consequences of our recent actions. If consequences are good… then good job. If they are undesired, then this opposition indicates it’s a good time to put some effort into reworking your structural approach to the less satisfactory places in your life. Build something more effective. Tuesday Feb 7 The Moon in Virgo opposes Venus in Pisces today bringing us in contact with what it means to be a spirit embodies in flesh. It’s a reminder that Heaven is here, not just “out there” and we came to earth to experience the intersection of the sacred + the profane. It’s a refresher in how we can use our bodies as instruments to connect with the divine, often found through nature. Wed Feb 8 The Virgo Moon, along with Mercury & Pluto in Capricorn indicate good conditions for buckling down into practical concerns, though the opposition to Venus & Neptune can show some pleasing distractions, coupled with a desire to escape the harshness of the world. Thursday Feb 9 The Waning Libra Moon opposite Jupiter, trine Mars in Gemini is quite extroverted; after the introversion of the Virgo Moon, the Astro weather now asks you to lean outwards into the breeze and cross-pollinate with others. Friday Feb 10 Today pulls us into deeper waters as Mercury joins Pluto for their annual psychopomp convention, the late Libra Moon squares Pluto, and the Moon enters Mars’s nighttime sign of the Scorpion. Under the waning Moon, this Astro weather is very favorable for doing shadow work; integrating your disowned self instead of projecting it all over everyone else. No one is above this work, and is essential for healthy relationships. Saturday Feb 11 Mercury enters Aquarius today, breaking ground for the passage that Pluto is preparing to make very soon, as he enters the anaretic degree of Capricorn. We are very close to a big new era, as the old era dies. The late Libra Moon squares Pluto creating unsettled conditions for relationships today. Be honest but not reactive for best results. Sunday Feb 12 Today the Scorpio Moon visits her own South Node & opposes Uranus, as Pluto moves to 29° Cap. Like a tense game of chess this move sets up the board for great change. Take stock of your life since 2009, as we are wrapping up a generational transit of Pluto through all the degrees of Capricorn. What house does Capricorn hold? These house topics are weary but regeneration takes effort and is worth it in the long run. Virgo Moon, along with Mercury & Pluto in Capricorn indicate good conditions for buckling down into practical concerns, though the opposition to Venus & Neptune can show some pleasing distractions, coupled with a desire to escape the harshness of the world.











In light of the economic realities of 2023, I am opening my practice to an ongoing sliding scale from $175-150 for full length readings.



Monday February 6

All hail the Full Moon in Leo! Combined with exalted Venus in Pisces, this is a very romantic, heartfelt full Moon. The square of Venus to Mars in Gemini at 11° adds some lusty & passionate flavor to this lunation. This is a lead up to Valentine’s Day Full Moon. Make it count!
