Sun enters Pisces

Is your ideology running away with you? It’s a question worth asking when Mars conjoins Pluto in the idealistic sign of Aquarius. “Idealistic” in this sense doesn’t’ mean naïve but rather a system of thought – or creed – that people should subscribe to in order to live happy lives. It sounds pleasant enough – Utopian even – but in the hands of Mars and Pluto that need to control people can get a bit out of control.  One of the virtues of Aquarius is that it embraces a diversity of thought and views which is a good thing to keep in mind when you find yourself getting into that “my way or the highway” mindset. Signs most affected: Aries, Gemini, Libra, Scorpio, and Aquarius
