He's a planet, a very influential one, no matter what the astronomers have decided to call him. He has been in the sign of Capricorn since the end of January and is now heading back to Sagittarius for one last chance to clean up old issues. You need to think back to 1994 and look at all that has happened since then. The rest of 2008 is a chance to bring those matters to closure.
Pluto in Capricorn has started his work of revealing hidden truths. Look at what we've seen and learned about the economic situation, the war, and the candidate race since the end of January when he entered Capricorn. Capricorn rules corporations, established structures and governments, and those who govern. The story of Eliot Spitzer is a perfect example of Pluto doing his thing in Capricorn. Expect to see more revelations like that.
Mercury's next retrograde period will be from May 26-June 19.

Friday, April 4 Moon in Pisces, VC from 5:43 pm until 8:27 pm, when it enters Aries. It's the end of the week and an old moon so you won't have much get-up-and-go today.
