Pluto is stationing direct at 2 degrees Capricorn for the next two weeks, so if you've noticed things getting a little dark and feisty, you'll know why.
Pluto goes direct September 13, the day after Mercury goes direct at 5 degrees Virgo, so both Mercury and Pluto will be almost stopped in the sky together around that time. The intensity builds, and there's not much wiggle room in these two signs. Yowtch.
The vibes don't really lighten grandscale any time soon, either. You'll recall that we're heading to a Ceres-Pluto conjunction October 19, enveloped within the Venus retrograde in Scorpio. This is an epic showdown of masculine and feminine, and neither is in the mood for any horseshit. There should be power struggles a-plenty as they make a long-term effort to get to a workable arrangement.
Venus-Mars-Eros in Scorpio beginning early next month ensure that we're all about keeping it real. Some deeply potent and alchemical situations are being spun up into conscious awareness for us to deal with.
This is going to be one witchy-ass Hallowe'en. And it's going to last about four months.
