Pluto has actually moved forward in the last day by a minute of a degree, after being stationary for 15 days. If Pluto is affecting your chart by transit, now is the time when things can move forward. We have just had 5 months of Pluto moving backwards, and retrograde motion is a time of sorting out underlying issues – or, in the case of the outer planets, keeping out of the way and staying conscious while they sort themselves.
But that sorting period also reshapes us, so whatever the issue is, we can now move forward renewed and re-empowered. But not quite yet, because Mercury is currently retrograde, and will be so for another 10 days.
Mercury retrograde is notorious for causing practical difficulties if we begin anything new. But it is very good for sorting, for getting the conditions right to take practical steps forward. Because Mercury is an inner planet, and therefore part of our individual consciousness, it is us who must do the sorting, rather than stepping back and letting Pluto etc do its bit.
So the re-empowerment is in place, you just need to wait 10 days before taking any new practical steps. By which time Pluto will be moving a bit faster, which helps.
I noticed that Facebook is starting to make a profit. I never know quite what to do with Facebook. I joined it because people kept asking me to be their friend, but I never visit it, and when I do I'm expected to join in conversations about the chocolate cake someone has just eaten. And people I hardly know still keep asking me to be their Facebook friend. What do I do? It’s a bit impolite to ignore their request, which I often do by default. It’s rude to say No. And it’s a bit false to say Yes. So I dither.
Does anyone out there say No to people they know only vaguely? Maybe I should start a network of Facebook friends who are willing to say No? It might be more real.
Facebook, like other networking sites, is a product of Neptune in Aquarius. Illusory (Neptune) networks of friends (Aquarius). Maybe we will have to wait 14 years until Pluto enters Aquarius for this one to get more real. The Ingress Chart has Pluto in square to Nodal Venus, which is perfect for bringing reality (Pluto) to relationships (Venus).
OK, I’m being a bit one-sided here, and Neptune of course doesn’t mean just illusory. In Aquarius, it can also mean electronic soul connections. Swoon!
