Feel the intensity yet?

That was a rhetorical question. I don’t really have the words to describe it. So I’ll just point you to those who do.
- Mercury-Jupiter-Pluto yod, Aquarius Papers
- Mercury sextile Jupiter, trine Uranus, RealAstrologers
Today and tomorrow, Mercury is in Leo sextile Jupiter. Jupiter has already quincunxed Pluto, but Mercury is making its quincunx over the next day or so. That makes for productivity between Mercury and Jupiter, with the nozzle of multiple “expansion through sacrifice” adjustments focused through Pluto.
I’ve also seen a Yod, or Finger of God, act as a “squeeze play” that forces out extraneous or needless things or actions and redirects the energies more efficiently. Again, productivity is indicated by the planets in sextile, though each must give up something to squeeze the energy through the nozzle planet, in this case Pluto.
The sextile from Mercury to Jupiter also forms the base of a Yod with Pluto at the apex. This is quite interesting and tells me that we’re going to feel some major pressure to transform, as individuals and as a collective. Many of us feel stressed to the breaking point. Something’s got to give. That “something” may or may not be a choice you can make intentionally, but it likely will require expanding your mind so that new solutions can present themselves.
Changing beliefs and behavior may be part of the mix as well – none of which is easy. Indeed, changing beliefs is one of the most difficult things a person can do. Changing beliefs can entail breaking down the entire structure that I call the “mental matrix.” But, breaking down is what Uranus is especially good at, and Pluto in Capricorn is all about transforming structures.
What’s being squeezed out of your nozzle right now? The finger of the yod is conjunct my Jupiter, opposite my Venus. I feel the urge to run, but all I can do is breathe.
