Sorry to be the bearer of angsty astro news, but the upcoming Capricorn Full Moon conjunct Pluto (July 3) is a bit of an asshole.
We start with the lead-up to it today with a long, bitchy square all day from the Moon in late Sagittarius to Mars on the final degree of Virgo (exact 5:21 p.m. Central).
This Sagittarius Moon square Mars at anaretic Virgo is not exactly jovial.
Mars has been in Virgo almost eight months. Virgo is an exhaustive, picky, perfectionist, digging into the dirty work no one else wants to do sign, but we're officially at the "I've had enough" point as Mars grinds out the 29th degree. One more detail we've overlooked or nook we've neglected to make spotless is going to push us over the edge, but doing things half-assed at this point has the potential to enrage those who have to fix or clean up after.
The Moon enters Capricorn, the sign of its detriment, at 5:51 p.m. this afternoon. The news doesn't get much better as it moves into cardinal t-square position conjunct Pluto and square Uranus in Aries by early tomorrow morning.
Moon-Pluto contacts have the potential to take us to some very dark, praying-for-sweet-sweet-death places emotionally. Add to that the square to Uranus, and people are on the edge. It will take very little to push people to their emotional eruption points.
This is a lot of pressure with people being backed into corners emotionally.
The Full Moon is exact tomorrow afternoon at 1:52 p.m., with the Moon appearing at its fullest points both tonight and tomorrow night.
This isn't exactly a Full Moon to bask in. It's sombre, on edge, grumpy, at its limit, and not willing to put up with any bullshit.
By July 4, the Capricorn Moon has peaked, alleviating a bit of the over-the-top Plutonic lunacy, but it will square both Eris in Aries and Saturn in Libra before going void of course at 7:25 a.m.
The squares to Eris and Saturn infuse the 4th of July holiday in the United States with a pervading sense of emotional heaviness, constriction, friction, and pressure, along with an unpredictable and upsetting shit disturber element coming from Eris.
The Full Moon edginess is not really going anywhere. It's just shifting flavours.
There is some listlessness under the heavy, all-day void-of-course Moon on July 4 until the Moon enters Aquarius at 7:26 p.m.
The Moon entering Aquarius should bring some much-needed detachment and emotional distance from this 'too incendiary to handle' Full Moon phase.
