CosmiTec's Love Letter, Issue #184 -- Natal Mars-Pluto connections
March 21, 2020

In April, all eyes will be focused on the conjoining of Jupiter with stationing Pluto.

While this "heavy" transit might work out in a highly favorable way in some natal charts, the outcome following mundane astrology can present a big challenge.

The mistake lots of people make when talking about planets is judging, labeling and dividing them into "good" and "bad."

However, nothing is "good" or "bad" and merely an experience to help in our ongoing development and evolution.

Planets each have archetypal characteristics and energies that all help in our development one way or the other.

Jupiter always enlarges, makes bigger, widens and broadens, among others, while Pluto digs up from the deep and turns things upside down, among others.

Combining both planets together may point to huge achievements but also large upheaval.

Hopefully, you can cope with the current challenging and tense times.

We are ALL in this TOGETHER ;)

Keep the spîrits high and loving and know that everything, how dire it may be, goes by too.

Much love and take lots of care ;)

In general and on a mundane level, events are likely to happen around April 1, 7, 13-14, 21 and/or 28-29.

During this month of April, the following planetary configurations will affect some birthdays in particular:
  • If you are born around January 7-8, February 21, April 6, May 22, July 8-9, August 24-25, October 9-10 or November 23, this month may bring its restrictions.

    You are sociable and may be connected with helpful people.

    There is friendship around.
Generally speaking, April 19 is a "less lucky" day.

Try not to initiate any major projects on this dark, unfortunate, chaotic and empty day (no proposals, no marriages, no changes of residence,...) because things may not go as planned or wished.

Around April 2, you feel beloved and you experience pleasantness with someone or with others.

You feel attractive and/or are attracted to someone or face an important encounter.

If you are born around January 5, February 18, April 3, May 20, July 6, August 22, October 7 or November 21, the current configurations may affect you most.

Venus enters mutable Gemini around April 3 also while Mercury conjoins Neptune at 19° Pisces.

It looks like lots is going on early April, with lots of changes of the place and encountering others.

There can be some confusion though and some unclear or nebulous situations.

Beware of colds and/or infections.

Around April 4-5, Jupiter and Pluto conjoin at 24° Capricorn, a degree area linked to the end of some situation.

On a personal level, this degree area indicates a successful change for the better, trying to find your way in a changed environment, a nice career change, being settled through a marriage or relocation, the opportunity to find a good job, home or empower yourself by following courses etc.

On a mundane level, this conjunction may bring out some big power struggles and/or the unveiling of corruption or fraud cases.

Mars at 5° Aquarius squares Uranus, its own dispositor, at 5° Taurus around April 7, suggesting an immense need to feel free and independent.

Beware of accidents and physical injuries around this waning square because it tends to be too rash, too impulsive, too hasty.

On a mundane level, this waning square is indicative of uproar, protests, anger.

Because of this aspect, you may be urged to change something and disruptions, sudden decisions and changes of course may happen.

Some of you may feel in some transit zone or period during which you feel the "old" and want to choose "the new."

You may feel some indecision as well.

This waning square indicates being on the go a lot too.

Around the April 8 perigee Full Moon, (a SuperMoon), there is love at first sight and/or enjoyable but short-lived encounters.

You may share your excitement with someone else or with others.

If you are born around January 10, February 22, April 8, May 25, July 11, August 27, October 12 or November 26, the current configurations may affect you most.

Around April 11, there are clouds in the sky.

Mercury enters initiating and pioneering Aries around the same day of April 11 and points to messages, letters, documents related to the armed forces (the military or the police).

There can be news about some start, something that is being initiated or started.

There is some breakthrough and breaking news ahead.

Mercury at 2° Aries squares the Lunar Nodes around April 13, indicating a very busy time with lots of buzz going on.

Around April 14, the Sun at 24° Aries squares Pluto at 24° Capricorn as well as, later on around April 15, Jupiter at 25° Aries.

This Sun's position suggests power issues (and even literally power or internet outages and electrical or electronic devices breaking down).

Around April 16, there is a lot of creativity and flair in the air.

You can indulge in pleasurable activities and love to listen to music or enjoy some popularity.

If you are born around January 16, March 1, April 15, June 1, July 17, September 2, October 18 or December 2, the current configurations may affect you most.

Around the same day of April 16, there are clouds in the sky.

Around April 19, the Sun enters inert Taurus and takes it comfortable.

Money and (preserving or increasing) possessions are on your mind.

You may hold on to what you have and want to feel comfortable.

It's time to save something.

The Sun at 1° Taurus squares Saturn at 1° Aquarius around April 21, suggesting a sobering period with some clouds in the sky.

You may be upset by some administration and/or financial issues.

There can be disagreements with older people or with some authority.

Around April 25, Mercury at 24° Aries squares stationing Pluto at 24° Capricorn.

Pluto turns backward and may show lots of annoyance, vexation and/or mental strain around its station.

Some of you may receive news about someone passing away.

Around April 26, there are clouds in the sky, followed by sunny spells.

Around the same day of April 26, Mercury at 26° Aries squares Jupiter at 26° Capricorn while the Sun conjuncts disruptive Uranus at 6° Taurus.

The waxing Mercury-Jupiter square is indicative of tendentious talks or news, promoting something in an exaggerated way.

This is an indiscreet aspect because Mercury is in impulsive, impatient, premature and extravert Aries while exaggerating Jupiter is in the sign of its fall.

The Sun-Uranus conjunction at an explosive degree that also represents "the breach of a dam" (literally or figuratively), may present sudden shocking events or experiences.

Some structure may collapse too during this transit.

Buildings and real estate are in the news.

Following astrometeorology, there can be strong winds and even storm here and there.

Some natural disasters cannot be ruled out.

Mercury enters material Taurus around April 27, indicating financial news and/or messages or documents related to existential stuff (like food, possessions, money etc.).

There may be bills to be paid.

The day after, around April 28, Mercury at 1° Taurus squares Saturn at 1° Aquarius, reinforcing some issues regarding food, a shelter, existential stuff because of whatever reason.

Some of you may be fired or face some other blockage or restriction.

There is criticism, discontent and fault-finding and you may face some shortages and/or (financial) losses.

You will need temperance and feel a sobering influence.

This waxing square indicates overcast and strong winds.

What's New on Our Web Site?

We added a page about the (love) life of Billie Eilish.

We encountered some issues with Google's reCAPTCHA to stop bots from filling out our forms and creating spam.

We noticed lots of "false" identifications but we are not sure if these are because of humans not being able to respond properly to the reCAPTCHA or if these are robots at work.

We are aware that some people might not like the reCAPTCHA as it makes submitting our forms more difficult and a bit inconvenient but we really need to do something about the immense flood of spam and other robotic influences.

We also continued replacing the Google Advertisements by more reliable and non-spying fixed ads on some pages.

Natal Mars-Pluto connections

In the past we have written many times about different planetary connections, analogies or affinities, mainly containing the love planet Venus.

We also started analyzing Mars connections and have written about the Mars-Jupiter, Mars-Saturn, Mars-Uranus and Mars-Neptune connections before.

This time, we want to delve deeper into the Mars-Pluto connection.

When do we have a Mars-Pluto connection, theme or analogy?

In most cases, the following configurations are used (there are more though (!) but this would lead us too far and make it more complicated than necessary):
  • Pluto in the 1st house
  • Mars in the 8th house
  • the ruler of the 1st house in the 8th house
  • the ruler of the 8th house in the 1st house
  • Mars in a close conjunction, square or opposition with Pluto (a tight sextile or trine counts too but in a minor way)
  • Mars at the solstice point of Pluto
  • Mars in Scorpio
  • Pluto in Aries
When at least three of the above listed analogies or connections can be found in the natal chart, we have a very powerful Mars-Pluto connection that will be felt and noticed in the character and life of the native.

What does the Mars-Pluto connection signify?

Mars and Pluto have similar archetypal qualities and characteristics.

Both can be intense, Mars is more acute, Pluto is more brooding and chronic because it rules a water sign.

Both are penetrating, Mars more direct and upfront, Pluto more behind the scenes/back.

Both are forceful and pushy, Mars more acute and intermittent while Pluto has more continuous stamina and power.

Hence, people who have this powerful connection are very energetic (often in a physical way) and full of drive.

Often too much so.

This connection represents the continuous urge to be busy, to do something, to be active -- even for the sake of it.

The downside can be a ruthless nature who is also too forceful and who neglects the boundaries of other people.

People having this connection are very independent and may have some talent or abilities that stuns others.

Obsessions or compulsive behavior can be theirs though.

In matters of love and romance, the native is highly attracted to an archetypal sexy man or woman.

In natal charts of men, this connection often suggests a very principled personality but also dutiful.

In a female chart, this connection tends to indicate incest or family abuse.
