“Speaking in Tongues” by the Talking Heads (source: Discogs)

I bought this album when it came out in 1983. It was so good! I still get goosebumps every time I hear the first few notes of “This Must Be the Place.”

Anyway, the album also includes the track “Burning Down the House.” The reason I was thinking about that song is that Mercury conjoined Pluto a few hours ago. For the last several hours, I’ve been really, really, really trying to keep my thoughts to myself because I feel as if I could just go off on someone. For instance, I’d love to tell all the people at my workplace in senior positions exactly what they’re doing wrong, and I wouldn’t mince my words while delivering their “performance review.”

This conjunction is occurring in my defensive fourth house, so maybe I’m just eager to launch a defensive strike in anticipation of future aggressions. Or maybe everyone else is feeling this way, too. I don’t know!

What I do know is that this annual aspect is going to recur in my fourth house quite a few times over the next several years because Pluto moves so slowly. Perhaps I can monitor the phenomenon to see if I feel the same way the next time it happens. One of these times, it might be in my best interests to burn down the house on the way out the door. Pluto is going to be in my fourth house for more than twenty years, so I guess I’m going to find out.
