On 17 September the Sun trine Pluto will give us a short but super-charged boost of energy and passion. This is a brief but very empowering transit that levels up our magic and makes use feel capable of anything, especially if your chart is triggered. Those with planets or points between 21 and 27 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aires, Cancer, Libra or Cap) will feel this transit most strongly.
Why is it sometimes so difficult to go after what we want, to let go of the things we cling to for security and move courageously into new territory? How can we learn the art of living dangerously? Perhaps one of the reasons we find it so hard is because we are not coming from a strong foundation. The earthy dynamo of Sun trine Pluto is here to teach us how to access our inner strength by grounding ourselves and taking care of our roots. This is particularly true with Pluto currently retrograde.
Sun trine Pluto is exact on 17 September. It’s a short-lived transit but if used wisely it can be a powerful agent for creative manifestation. Creating a strong vision of what you wish to manifest in your life brings it more clearly into focus. This is an excellent transit for launching a new project, or pushing forward with something that’s been stuck.
Sun trine Pluto helps us draw on resources we may have forgotten we have. It gives us perseverance and courage to push through the obstacles that have been holding us back. Just be careful of getting obsessed by your project and staying up all night only to bark at your kids all day because you’ve exhausted yourself!
Although exact for just one day, some people will feel Sun trine Pluto for a good week or more. With the Sun in Virgo and Pluto well settled in Capricorn, these two powerful energies combine to bring us down to Earth. We can then project ourselves more powerfully into the world. It’s a bit like when you pull back the bow string in order to let the arrow fly free. In the Earth signs, Sun trine Pluto is an intense but steady transformative power that can be relied upon.
Sun trine Pluto is a transit that is calling you to take up the reins of your own life. It brings to mind the tarot card of the Chariot: through will-power and determination we achieve victory. Your leadership and decision making-skills are likely to be strong during this time and you may find that you have more influence over others. Be careful however: ambition may push you to take advantage of this power and use it unwisely!
