Pluto, while small, is an extremely powerful planet that will transform whatever he touches. We all get tired of feeling like we have to prove ourselves to someone, we grow weary of hoping for things to change yet never actually seeing those situations manifest in a different way. We basically get to the point where our souls are telling us that this is not a space we need to be in. Pluto needs full surrender. There are no claw marks left behind on what the lord of the underworld is trying to take away.
The thing to remember during this time is that Mercury in Scorpio has a sharp tongue, and for those of us who have reached our breaking point it will be difficult to find words of kindness and love when what we really want to say takes a permanent hike in the opposite direction. So this is the duality to this transit. We should let go if we feel like our sense of self is being compromised, if our needs are not being met, or if someone has been careless with our heart.
Just know this may not last forever, meaning that we will come back together. For those relationships that do part ways, they will likely stay apart until Venus enters the relationship-orientated sign of Libra at the beginning of November.
