Hermes meets Hades... and it's time to "turn a corner" in your thinking.
Mercury is speeding through Aries now, enjoying the delights of discovery, the rush of idealistic enthusiasms, and the joy of new beginnings. Thoughts are racing, words come tumbling forth and there is electricity in the air. But what is "that"? What's ahead? There seems to be a shadow on the path.
Mercury in Aries is now facing a challenge thrown down by Pluto in Capricorn. New ideas are exciting, but Pluto asks will it work? Saying whatever comes to mind feels so "truthful", but Pluto asks are you being responsible?
Mercury in Aries fuses thinking with acting, there is no delay. But Pluto reminds you that your thoughts have consequences, you must exercise self-control. If misunderstood, Pluto on Mercury can make you up the ante in any debate: there is only one solution, communicating is a zero-sum game, winning is everything. Well that is just wrong, wrong... wrong.
Communication is not about "winning", it is about understanding. If you feel someone is pushing their thoughts upon you, you must tell them to stop. And, just because you think you are "right", gives you no right to force your idea upon another.
Instead, use the will of Pluto to help you to exercise greater self-control over your mind and communications. Mental self-control and the discernment it bestows is the key. Turn your mind inward and probe and prove or disprove the assumptions that underlie your perceptions.
Then move out again having achieved that greater centering and self-control. True understanding will develop as you share, blend and transform your well-founded ideas with one another in the spirit of cooperation rather than compulsion.
In truth, you alone can only know so much. But when two or more gather together, understanding will come through the cooperative blending of perceptions, ideas and mind.
So, turn a corner in your mind and let go of your need to be "right". Now you are walking the path of Wisdom. "Know Thyself... Control Thyself".
