Our immune systems are evolving just like the rest of us. If you are not following your soul’s most authentic path, your immune system breaks down and the cells in your body begin aging rapidly or mutating. If you are following your purpose, you can live in a toxic environment and adapt, just like the oldest living creature, the cockroach. The reality is that as we clean up our thoughts, the environment follows suit.

How Mars and Pluto Squaring off During Mercury Retro Could Affect You
We are building to the Solar Eclipse on Dec 26th. Can you feel it? If you do, it may be because it is so deeply connected to the line up in January of Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn. We are being called to do a massive, collective detoxification. In recorded history, we’ve not seen this before. It is no wonder that so many residential addiction treatment facilities are so full…before Xmas!
If you have gotten the flu or a bad cold in the past six weeks, what may be happening is that your body wants to release not just the symptoms of a cold or flu but aspects of the you from the last decade, that no longer serves. We are moving into the most important decade of this century, because it informs our very survival beyond that.
We start to feel the impact of a solar eclipse in its full force about three months prior and for three months after. The planet of death and transformation Pluto is not just playing out through this intense Mercury retrograde in Scorpio, but on Monday and Tuesday, the planets Mars and Pluto will be squaring off, literally. Mars rules how we physically move through life. Pluto, the higher octave of Mars, is calling us to transform how we use our energy. The next five months Mars will be moving toward a merging with Pluto in late March 2020 ( watch what happens on the political scene then) so we are collectively being called to observe how and for what purpose are we using our physical energy. It rules the adrenals in medical astrology. More on Mars Pluto square examples below through the lives of Mohammed Ali, Bruce Lee, and Elisabeth Kubler Ross.
I have been stressing the void moon days because our bodies were not made to be plugged into computers and smart phones to the degree most people do. We need days (sometimes during our work week) to be away from social media and email. When northern California went through a black out for three days, some of my clients reported that their children became depressed and anxious.
I am honored to be participating in a telesummit that will air in December called Overcoming Anxiety and Depression in These Times. I will share information on a specific kind of mood imbalance that manifests from not following your true soul path. Beginning November 12th, over 25 therapists, psychologists, doctors and more will help you break through your fears, heal your wounds, and live a life filled with security, joy, self-love and contentment.https://www.avaiya.com/peace/?ap_id=galardi
Back to Mars/Pluto. Whenever two planets square one another, the friction can either produce alchemy or inflammation. Mars and Pluto in square deals with power, power struggles, and sometimes death resulting from the struggle. Mohammed Ali used that energy to keep getting up when he got knocked down so many times. That is fundamentally the key to success for a boxer. However, the cost eventually was to his brain.
Bruce Lee, considered the finest martial artist of his time, died of cerebral edema, swelling of the brain. Despite his disciplined diet and work out, it has been said that he overtrained. Two months prior to his death, was the first incidence of cerebral edema. After being released from the hospital, he prematurely went back to his fast paced life.The common cause of cerebral edema is heat stroke. The day of his death, July 20, 1973 was the hottest day on record in Hong Kong.
Elisabeth Kubler Ross was a psychiatrist who wrote the groundbreaking book, On Death and Dying. As she began her psychiatric residency, she was appalled by the hospital treatment of patients in the U.S. who were dying. She began giving a series of lectures featuring terminally ill patients, forcing medical students to face people who were dying.
She used her ferocious physical energy to pioneer treating terminal patients with greater respect and understanding. She suffered a stroke at the age of 69 that paralyzed her, causing her to be confined to a wheel chair. She expressed the desire to take her own life but was not permitted to by the nursing staff. She lived another 9 years.
I share these three stories as cautionary tales on using your physical energy forcefully. My own mother (who had Germanic forceful energy) also had her first stroke the year after she retired as did her own father despite not having a Mars Pluto aspect. Neither of them planned for their retirement to repurpose their lives soulfully so their brains perhaps weren’t being utilized to start a fulfilling Act 3. Therefore, it isn’t just Mars Pluto square people who incur brain damage from over-doing.
We are meant to live our lives in yin and yang balance. The last decade of internet addiction has altered that. My passion is to inspire you to follow the planetary influences for best efficacy and resilience in your work performance. We are intricately connected to the planets in our galaxy.
Astrological Tips for Your Work Week
11/4/19 – Its Monday and the Mars Pluto square begins for two days. Lean back into your “Wholy Self” and flow with the day. Resisting anything that just is, can have challenging consequences, but get things done as the moon will be void tomorrow when the Mars Pluto square goes exact. Check where it is in your chart if you know where 20-21 degrees of Libra and Capricorn are.
The following interpretations for Nov 5 and 6th are from my friend and colleague Jim Schultz:
11/05/19 – 6:37 am PST – slow Moon goes Void-of-Course: Following a waxing first quarter crisis of action square to retrograde Mercury the Moon goes void-of-course for 8 1/2 hours. (For those in EST, the whole work day.) It’s Tuesday morning. Best if you stick with your routine and set aside any new projects or tasks until after the Moon enters Pisces this afternoon. You may want to focus on any communications such as texts, emails or letters that you need to respond to. Choose your words carefully. Make sure you understand what the other person is saying or asking. Spellcheck and grammar check before you click send.
11/05/19 – 3:08 pm – slow Moon enters Pisces: The void-of-course is over. If you have any new projects or tasks that you have set aside, you should be good to go if you want to start them now. Mercury is retrograde so be sure you understand whatever it is you are expected to do. Get clarification before starting. Read the fine print.
Wednesday, 11/06/19 – 2:41 am – slow Moon square VenusThis waxing first quarter crisis of action square is the first of four exact aspects by the Moon today. Following this the Moon will make a waxing trine to the Sun, a waxing sextile to Saturn and then conjunct retrograde Neptune. Note any dreams, insights or feelings when you wake. Be alert for “messages” during the day. Waxing aspects symbolize a time for expansion, for nurturing and growing things; but the conjunction symbolizes a new beginning. It may be that whatever you are working on, you might need to go back and review your original idea, instructions or goal. Have you stayed on track or are you veering off course? Retrogrades imply a time to go back and take another look and review your steps along the way. Saturn expects us to follow the rules and do what is right; so, if you haven’t been, you may have to pay a price now.
11/8/19 at 8:00 PM PST friday – 11/9/19 Saturday at 6:13 pm PST, retrograde Mercury sextile Pluto exact.Next weekend is a great time for writing deep thoughts as the moon will be void until 3:18 PM PST on sunday. Use the focus of Mercury in support of Pluto to set an intention for an answer from your subconscious mind, Saturday evening before bed. Pay attention to your dreams Sunday morning and when you awaken, write down what you remember.
