Pluto is the planet of transformation, power, and rebirth. Its influence is subtle but profound, bringing to light the deeper, darker forces at work in our lives. Pluto’s transits often involve intense emotional experiences, power struggles, or confrontations with our shadows. These transits are transformative, forcing us to confront and change fundamental aspects of our lives and selves.

type of aspect:

An opposition occurs when planets are about 180 degrees apart, directly across from each other on the zodiac wheel. This aspect can create a pull between opposing forces or interests, requiring a balance or integration of these energies. Oppositions often highlight areas where we need to understand and manage opposing viewpoints or conflicting needs. Planets in opposition are sometimes projected onto other people or there is a tension between people related to two planets (representing their inner qualities).


When Mercury opposes Pluto in transit, expect a period of intense mental probing and transformative communications. This aspect challenges us to confront deeper truths and hidden layers of our psyche and relationships. The opposition typically illuminates power dynamics, secrets, or underlying motives, both within ourselves and in our interactions with others. It's a powerful time for psychological insights and revelations that can change the course of how we think or communicate. During this transit, discussions may turn into debates, with a potential for manipulation or confrontational encounters if not handled with awareness. However, the transformative potential of Mercury opposite Pluto can lead to profound shifts in understanding, where old patterns of thought are destroyed to make way for new perceptions that are truer to reality.

what to do

  • Engage in deep research or investigative activities.

  • Use the heightened perception for transformative conversations, aiming for honesty and clarity.

  • Re-evaluate your ways of communicating, especially in power-laden contexts.

  • Seek therapeutic dialogue or counselling if recurring issues surface.

  • Journal about discoveries of inner truths or external realities that come to light.

what to avoid

  • Avoid manipulative or coercive speech.

  • Stay clear of obsessing over conspiracy theories or negative thought loops.

  • Do not dismiss others' viewpoints without considering their perspective.

  • Avoid heated arguments that could lead to breaches in relationships.

  • Resist the urge to control conversations or outcomes rigidly.

  • Obsessive thoughts or compulsive tendencies in communication.

  • Paranoia or distrust in relationships.

  • Issues with power and control in dialogue.


  1. Acknowledge any discomforting truths that emerge; understanding that growth often comes from facing what's hidden.

  2. Practice mindful communication: before speaking, consider the impact of your words.

  3. Utilize this time to transform your thinking patterns; discard what no longer serves your higher purpose.

  4. Engage in meditation or practices that promote mental clarity and reduce stress, aiding in handling intense interactions more calmly.

  5. If power dynamics in relationships are revealed, address them constructively rather than defensively or aggressively.



  • "I communicate with integrity and seek truth in all exchanges."

  • "I embrace the transformative power of truth to foster growth and understanding."

  • "I am open to changing my perspective to align more closely with my deepest truths."
