Mercury Squares Pluto Rx

Mercury square Pluto retrograde is an aspect that occurs when these two planets are approximately 90 degrees apart and takes on the appearance that Pluto is moving backward from the Earth's perspective. It's intense, but this time holds excellent potential for making progress via communication and thought processes.

Mercury, the planet of communication, deals with how we think, communicate, and process information. It influences our daily interactions and our capacity to perceive and analyze the world. Conversely, Pluto represents transformation, the subconscious, power, and deep psychological insights. Pluto's energies are turned inward when retrograde, intensifying personal reflection on the themes it governs.

When Mercury squares retrograde Pluto, it often triggers deep, transformative conversations that can lead to significant personal insight and growth. However, this aspect can also bring about intense mental pressure, power struggles in communication, and obsessive thinking. For someone in recovery, this time might reflect a period where hard, perhaps, previously hidden thoughts come up and now demand to be addressed.

This aspect can serve as an accelerator pedal for change, urging us to dive into our own brains, confront our fears, and transform our communication styles and thought processes. It's a powerful time for self-discovery and for challenging ourselves to overcome mental barriers and addictive thought patterns that no longer serve us.

Go Journal:

  1. How might confronting uncomfortable truths about ourselves transform our path to recovery?
  2. How can we harness the power of transformative communication to support us?
  3. Have you experienced a difficult conversation leading to a significant breakthrough in personal understanding or relationships? 

I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to each of you for sharing this space with openness and courage. It's in these moments of shared vulnerability and insight that we truly harness the transformative power of our journeys. Remember, the paths we navigate in recovery are as unique as the stars in the sky, yet we're all connected in our quest for growth and understanding. Let's carry forward the insights and inspirations from today, supporting each other as we embrace the challenges and changes that lie ahead. Stay strong, continue to reach for the stars, and never forget—you're not alone on this journey. Until next time, take care of yourselves and each other.
