Excerpt from Patreon – Power is still the topic to discuss on October 15 as the Sun squares Pluto. The ongoing T-square is now fully engaged. As the solar principle reaches out to Hades, we may be made aware of blind spots that we didn’t know we had. The Sun square to Pluto can also make us feel cornered, terrified to make a move or furious that things seem out of control. Given the Sun’s opposition to Mars, maybe we want to come out all guns blazing but it probably isn’t the best response. We need to explore where we might be holding on too much. What needs to be released? How do we accept what isn’t in our control? What do we need to give up on to release energy for other goals and desires?
