November 9: Mercury in Scorpio Sextile Pluto in Capricorn
Liar, Liar, Soul on Fire
The day’s spectrum is wide with ugly vs. brilliant potential, from brash, self-centered trickery and abuse of power, to an all-consuming focus on creativity that overcomes all conventions and obstacles in a total immersion in the passion of the here and now.
This is the last day of Mars in Vedic Virgo, drawing to a close some focus on staying busy in order to manage the chaos since late September. We’ve needed to get so much done in order to ground and make room for the larger changes in our future visions, and we’ve met the forces of criticism and small-mindedness that have appeared to be obstacles to our higher truths and purposes—but hopefully learned something from them in the process.
The mind runs dark, but hopefully focused, and it’s a hard day to trust anyone—even ourselves. Watch that your speech doesn’t manipulate, sting, or deceive, and perhaps pull away so that you can create bold new webs of influence.
