I don’t often pay much attention to my progressed chart nor the aspects made by my progressed planets to my natal chart. However, when I was checking to see when Mars in Cancer made its exact square to my Libra Moon, I noticed my progressed Mars in Capricorn was exactly squaring my natal Neptune in Libra . . . at 9°. Yes, that would be the same 9° of Pluto in Capricorn opposing Jupiter in Cancer!
My progressed Mars has been conjoined by transiting Pluto in Capricorn on and off over the past several years allowing me to adjust to an underlying sense of intensity. No big deal. It was only this past month when the square to my natal Neptune occurred. Yesterday Jupiter in Cancer was exactly square my Neptune completing a T-Square with pMars conjunct Pluto. No wonder it has felt like I’ve been walking in ankle deep mud. Hard aspects between Mars and Neptune are lethargy inducing to say the least.
The key for me is the wide conjunction between Neptune and my Libra Moon. Transits to Neptune also affect my Moon and my emotions play a big role. This past week I’ve been dealing with my father’s health issues and spending a great deal of time talking to my brother and sister. They both came for brief visits with my father and whilst this lifted his spirits and encouraged him to eat more, it also wore him out. His Cancer Sun-Pluto conjunction has been opposed by Pluto in Cappy on and off the last few years, a wearing transit. It was good to see my siblings and all but still emotionally trying. We’re all waiting for test results to determine exactly what my father’s problem is and that could be awhile. Heh, we’ll probably know more around the time Jupiter in Cancer squares Uranus!
I’m still pondering what it means to have Neptune in my eleventh house being the apex of the T-Square. It might have to do with my friends, my dreams and my place in the larger scheme of things. An emerging theme is continually sacrificing any dreams on the altar of practicality. Pluto is currently transiting my second house opposing Jupiter in Cancer in my eighth and Pluto’s frugality dominates all.
The pMars-tPluto conjunction will be squaring my Neptune until sometime in November but the square from Jupiter in Cancer is already waning. Hopefully without Jupiter exaggerating matters, it will be easier to live with and my mood swings will level out. Libra is never happy when someone is stomping on one end of her scales.
