From the first 2 to 3 degrees of Cardinal signs Aries (Mars) and Capricorn (Pluto) comes a transit that's hard for the collective to ignore: Mars square Pluto, an aspect that packs power and zeal into its suitcase of tricks, and even vengeful-when-scorned Venus is watching nearby.
My advice? Let the excellent Lynn Hayes explain all about it and follow the comments after her article for more info on this dynamic duo about to 'square off' with one another.
Reinhold Ebertin, in his book The Combination of Stellar Influences, gives Mars-Pluto when working together as: superhuman power; force; brutality.
Here are the correspondences as listed:
Psychological + - the ability to demonstrate extraordinary force and vigour; great self-confidence; great ambition; the obsession to work without any break. (That last may be meant for 'focused' bloggers of great intensity.)
negative expression: attainment of one's own objectives by means of ruthlessness to others; cruelty.
Biological - the replacement of natural organs and functions by artificial substitutes such as limbs, dentures; skull.
Sociological - piece-workers being paid for overtime work; great people in the sphere of sport; people disabled in war.
Probable manifestations + - attainment of success through excessive effort.
negative expression - the tendency to proceed in a brutal manner; the misfortune of having to suffer violent assaults, injuries.
Well, I don't like typing this info in, you know, but we may as well be aware of what Mars/Pluto's explosive energies are capable of effecting.
So let's create as many good things as we can and send out positive vibes into the environment ~ the universe ~ to offset the actions of those who are determined to be sociopathic chaos-creators toward society.
For my part this evening, I've been publishing new art images in one of my gallery collections, Cosmic Persona Designs for those of the 17+ persuasion. And you know something? It's only Art!
