Mars conjunction Pluto: April 26, 2018

Mars in the sky moves to form a conjunction aspect with Pluto on April 26, 2018 at 10.55am GMT.

The aspect will influence the mundane agenda here on Earth from around April 3, 2018 to May 24, 2018.

The matters ruled by each planet will come into prominence and every country has its own Mars-Pluto conjunction chart. The chart acts as an event model and operates in a domestic environmental setting.

The Moon – planet of the common people – forms a very friendly luck (trine) aspect with the Mars-Pluto conjunction; and Jupiter – planet of finances and goodwill – forms a friendly opportunity (sextile) aspect.

The Mars-Pluto discord is somewhat modified by the Moon/Jupiter harmony.

Mars in global astrology

Mars is the planet of strife, aggressive force, fast action, disputation, anger, provocation, revenge, hate, brutality, torture, sex, alcohol, vice, banditry, explosions, brawls, gambling, accidents, fires and infectious disease.

It rules war, conflict, bombs, missiles, guns, knives, manufacturing, soldiers, the military, army, navy, police, industrial workers, fire fighters and doctors.

Mars is a high-discord planet and its aggressive, selfish nature is naturally inclined to stir up strife, conflict, enmity, acrimony and violence.

Its initiative and bravery confront dangerous situations and life-threatening enemies but there’s always a high element of risk, danger and peril.


Pluto is the planet of cooperation, collaboration, coercion, menace, threats, harassment, compulsory participation, disunity, division, drastic action, insidious evil, kidnapping, universal welfare, spirituality, the common good, division of labor, mass production and atheistic materialism.

It rules groups, mobs, terror networks, bureaus, commissions, crime, organized crime, criminals, lobbyists, television, radio, computers, the world wide web, the dark web, bullying, stalking, internet trolls, misinformation, the suppression of facts, inversion and propaganda.

With Pluto doublespeak and vague innuendo are always evident and there’s a high degree of pressure, menace, threat and coercion.

Pluto is the planet of dictators and corruption

According to Freedom House a dictator is the ruler of a land rated ‘Not Free’ and in 2018 there are 49 dictatorships in the world – 21 in Africa, 18 in Asia, 7 in the Middle East, 1 in Europe and 2 in Americas.

They include China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Myanmar, North Korea, Syria and Venezuela; and their dictator leaders Xi Jinping (dictator for life), Vladimir Putin, Abdullah Aziz Al Soud, Abdul Fattah al Sisi, Hassan Rouhani, Muhammed Fuad Masum, Htin Kyaw, Kim Jong-un, Bashar al-Assad and Nicolás Maduro.

Corruption is defined as dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power. It primarily involves bribery and it’s prevalent in political circles and rampant in dictator countries.

In the Pluto Period of the Aquarian Age the Lower-Pluto forces are intent on robbing people of their freedoms and destroying democracy. They use dictators and cyber warfare to achieve their goals.

In the Aquarian Age chart progressed Mars is parallel progressed Pluto.

A terror attack – mass shooting – mob violence

Aggressive coercion – coercive force and threats

Russia and the West

Pluto is the planet of cooperation and working together but Russia and the West don’t get along.

In March 2018 with Mars conjunction Saturn in the sky the conflict and tensions between the western democracies and Russia escalated and Mars conjunction Pluto is very inclined to increase these tensions dramatically.

Pluto’s extreme nature expresses as unity or disunity.

It’s the planet of groups and when countries form into regional groups, ideological groups, unions or blocs their success depends upon their capacity to cooperate and present a united front. Division is death.

In the current circumstances Mars conjunction Pluto in the sky could bring relations between the western democracies and Russia to the brink but what eventuates very much depends upon cooperation.

A group that’s united can exert maximum pressure and force.

The Mars-Pluto conjunction and you

This Mars-Pluto conjunction aspect in the sky will have no direct influence on you personally.

What’s currently taking place in your life and what’s on your mind is primarily determined by the major progressed aspects in your chart and the local environment in which you live, work and operate.

On the world stage the chief actors involved in the Mars-Pluto events will have these planets in their birth charts scoring above average astrodyne power plus one or more progressed aspects involving Mars and Pluto.

Mars in your birth chart is the marker for your (not-conscious) urge to take aggressive action. It measures your aggression and its house position signifies an area of your life where there’s strife, energetic effort, hasty action and disputes.

The life matters, activities and social relationships ruled by this house will stir your passions, but it’s a conflict zone where social strife easily erupts into anger and disputation.

Pluto in your birth chart is the marker for your (not-conscious) urge to contribute to the welfare of others. It measures your spirituality and signifies an area of your life where group activity, cooperative effort, undue pressure, compulsion and coercion influence the proceedings.

The life-matters and activities ruled by this house provide you with an avenue for group involvement and spiritual endeavor, but the people it signifies will exert undue pressure and you’ll feel compelled to do what they want.
