Transit Aspects

Astrological transits are a part of what is usually called predictive astrology, the claim of astrology to predict or forecast future trends and developments. Most astrologers nowadays regard the term 'prediction' as something of a misnomer, as modern astrology does not claim to directly predict future events as such. Instead it is claimed that an astrological pattern with regard to the future can correspond with any one of a variety of possibilities. What is in fact foretold is the trend of circumstances and the nature of the individual's reaction to the situation

Pluto Opposition Natal Mercury


The Transit of Pluto Opposition to Mercury will bring about many conflicts with others when it comes to how you communicate and express your opinions. You may be quite dogmatic about your ideas and try to force your ideas onto others or vice versa. You must try to be as open minded and flexible as possible during this transit and let people believe what they want to believe. If someone tries to scrutinize your thoughts or opinions, it is best to just accept their opinion not necessarily believe it but question why they are trying to impose their ideas onto you and how valid are they.
It is very important to question your own thoughts, attitudes and beliefs during this time, as Pluto maybe trying to break these old habits and patterns down, but you probably will be hanging onto them perhaps even being a little dogmatic about it. Your own ego will oppose the energies coming from this Pluto energy, so it is important to realize this, and make sure you are not being too fixed on your viewpoints. This transit will challenge them greatly so you will need to adapt and change, it is for your own evolution and growth that you do this.
Avoid getting involved with any cult-like groups or being too fanatical about your beliefs, as you also may start to become obsessed about certain groups, topics or politics, and you must question your own intentions, and why you feel so drawn towards it. You will be able to work extra hard under this transit as your mind will be much more active, be careful not to overdo yourself. Mental exploration around metaphysical and occult topics could be dangerous, as it may make you become too involved in them and avoid or neglect your normal life or work.
