Mercury opposite Pluto

Mercury Opposite Pluto Natal

This combination symbolizes a state of dynamic tension between the rhythm of your daily thoughts and movements and the urge to penetrate deeper into the mysterious depths, or to gain and exercise power over the masses. One of the first ways this shows itself is in obsessive tendencies where the intense probing nature of the mind will keep at something until it is figured out or you end up being exhausted. You may feel alienated because of your tendency to always look deeper than most people ever care to go and dwelling on the surface of casual chit-chat may feel like a waste of time. Once you realize that the depths are a place to visit and return from, rather than to dwell, you will be able to manage your ordinary life much better. Understanding the natural doors and openings and heeding the need for invitations to go deeper will limit the intrusive nature of your gifts.

Mercury Opposite Pluto Transit

This transit suggests a challenge to your sense of a deeper purpose or your will to power. You may be seeking or needing power, which you cannot obtain, or you may be offered power that you cannot really use or do not want. In either case, understanding and accepting limits, rather than trying to circumvent them, is necessary. This is generally a quick transit that comes around once per year, but as often as six to seven years or as seldom as thirteen years apart Mercury will make a series of three oppositions with the middle one occurring during retrograde motion. This is a much more significant transit that suggests an inner need to make major adjustments to your relationship with purpose and power. You may be burnt out and need to let go of something that was once a driving force in your life, or else you may be feeling listless and bored and in need of something to stoke your inner flame. Taking your time to make the right choices, rather than going off half-cocked, is paramount.
