Jupiter Square Retrograde Pluto...

starts on July 5 (using a 1 degree orb), is exact on July 25 at 2.20pm in Kilmore (Jupiter will then be retrograde at 3 degrees and 23 minutes of Aries, and retrograde Pluto at 3 degrees and 23 minutes of Capricorn); this aspect will again be exact on August 3 at 3.32pm in Kilmore - retrograde Jupiter at 3 degrees and 12 minutes of Aries, retrograde Pluto at 3 degrees and 12 minutes of Capricorn.  This aspect will finish up on August 23.

This square will be around for some time, and unusually, both of the times it is exact will be when BOTH planets are retrograde!  I'm not sure exactly what this means, however, the retrograde motion of both planets suggests the need to go back over past issues in order to reach a series of turning points (square aspect).

Jupiter tends to energise and increase whatever it touches, and in a lot of cases has a lucky feel to it.  Pluto is an intensely emotional energy associated with power and control.  The square aspect is generally stressful and energetic, but often leads to a breakthrough or turning point because the stress associated with it pushes us to do something about what is causing us stress.

So, if we look to our own charts we can get a feel for where we may be at a stressful, but productive cross-road.  The houses that involve Jupiter may be the ones where we want to be 'bigger than Ben Hur', the ones that involve Pluto may be where irrational feelings are perhaps working against this need to grow, or maybe we have control issues or someone represented by these houses is on a power trip?  Regardless of exactly how these energies are experienced, it seems that we will need to reconcile these two energies in a way that allows growth, but also control.

Look to see which houses the planets fall in, and also which are ruled by them (Jupiter = Sagittarius and Pisces, Pluto = Scorpio) in order to get a feel for what or who may be involved.

If you have personal planets or points in Aries or Capricorn, then you may be especially sensitive to this energy.
