We start off the month of August with two days of mega-high-octane energy starting with Jupiter in Aries squaring Pluto on August 3. Jupiter in Aries is go-ahead, self confident; it acts as a motivator, a crusader and can be wildly impulsive. When it meets powerful Pluto at a square, then it can boost all those tendencies way over the top.
Jupiter and Pluto together have a reputation for making certain people think that rules and regulations don’t apply to them, so you may find yourself in situations that are tricky to handle. This cosmic energy can make some of us become a law unto to ourselves and thoroughly stubborn. Although, if you find yourself on the receiving end, be prepared to be slapped down by the boss, or end up with traffic or parking tickets. The upside of Jupiter Pluto is that it boosts confidence so if you’re normally timid it will help enormously.
What complicates matters is that by very next day, August 4, Pluto moves on to square Mars, and Jupiter has moves into an opposition to Mars – across the zodiac. So there will be a dizzying combination of assertion and dynamism from Mars, expansive though possibly unrealistic optimism from Jupiter, and Pluto’s drive for control and influence.
Jupiter – Pluto combinations tend to work on the might makes right theory of life. Mars – Jupiter can be self justifying, tending to wrap its’ aggression in high minded moral excuses. Mars – Pluto just knows that relentless determination pays off.
If you get it right you could move mountains, start grandiose new projects, or turn your life around. But you could just as easily find yourself pushed around by someone else’s inflated schemes. The key is to be centred. Be neither too stubbornly intent on getting your own way, nor too submissive. Be yourself and use this time as productively as possible.
However, we all act and react depending upon our individual make-up or personal psyche and personality. What perturbs one person may not bother another.
