On the Level by Mac De Marco
There’s tension in the air today as Pluto recently turned direct and, paired with several other challenging planetary oppositions, you may be tempted to throw in the towel.
When Pluto is involved, you can expect deeply transformational energy – and now that the planet of change is turning direct in Capricorn, you may finally see the physical results for your hard work beginning to manifest.
The themes of death and rebirth that accompany Pluto in Capricorn often represent the removal of bad habits that have been blocking success in the workplace. Pluto moving direct means that the time of work-related soul searching is passing, so use the lessons of this past retrograde to make real progress.
In addition to Pluto’s forward momentum, we’re still dealing with Jupiter in Libra opposing Uranus in Aries, an aspect that can cause some real financial turbulence. Tomorrow, Venus in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces, bringing with it the possibility of delusional thinking, especially in regards to romance and money.
You may need to focus on the hard financial truth today, assimilating the lessons of Pluto’s retrograde in Capricorn. Mac DeMarco echoes this sentiment in his song “On the Level” off of his latest album This Old Dog. The slow groove and smoked vocals portray a certain lonely realization: this could be your year, but not without acknowledging your weaknesses.
