Mercury  Pluto
On the 20th of April at 1:39 GMT, Mercury contraparallels Pluto.
Mercury is 18°11'30" N and thus Pluto is 18°11'30"S.
The principle is the ‘Art of Persuasion’ or the wielding of influence through speaking or writing. I suppose it’s a good job politicians won’t be waffling at that time of night. It is an event so all can express themselves with it but if you have a parallel at the same degree you can direct it through that part of your chart. On the 3rd of May at 13:01 GMT they trine at 5° 15” of Taurus and Capricorn respectively and so whatever feedback there is from the event will arrive here. Pluto in Capricorn is the 10th house and pertinent to transformations of one’s career and the structure and politics of society. So I really do hope that no politicians are composing speeches in the wee small hours of the 20th because this basically constitutes a spell.
