This Full Moon Kind of Sucks

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.

I'm pretty much doing jack-sh*t on the 4th besides cleaning and cooking a bit. A number of people I know who had the option of taking the day off on July 4th have decided to work. Why?

Reasons vary from "it's too hot to do anything" to "tourists" to the ridiculous amount of traffic. I swear, a ten-minute ride has taken us over an hour in past summers. (That's why we don't drive anywhere on summer weekends.)

My favorite reason for going into work came from a close friend, a Gemini:

"I'd rather *get paid* for any angst."

I was on the floor. I'd go to work, too, but my clients are all away that day!

Thanks for the heads-up, Willow :)! Capricorn is just not in the mood... and I'm having fun finding the humor in that.

It is humourous if you know the scene ahead of time!

I also like that whenever Pluto is heavily involved in a post, I get to swear more than usual.

You can't beat a well-placed swear word under a Pluto contact. And my life seems like one long Pluto contact, do the math.

Excellent, as usual.Those irritating service to self entities seem to be having it the worst around me.They seem to be in a process of being flushed out for all of us to see these days.And aren't they in fits,things are not working for them the usual way. I feel the heavy quiet serious around me.Bring it on..we need change.Kauai.

Tee hee, Willow! Do you know, I think if he knew you particularly enjoy posts that heavily involve him because you get to swear more, even Pluto himself might crack a smile, albeit a fleeting one. :-) Thanks again for another excellent heads up-- and I can empathize with your math.... Does Pluto conjunct Ascendant qualify as a life-long Pluto contact? Sure feels that way. Here's to the God of the Underworld. --Lisa in Boston

Does Pluto conjunct the Ascendant count? DEFINITELY, Lisa!

wow you nailed this one! my DH has saturn in zer0 libra which really accentuated the cranky nitpicky aspect of this. usually moon in Sag is good for us because we are both triple sags but he ended up in the hospital where a million little things went wrong and everything took much longer than normal. very exasperating.
in the end, we learned something very valuable which will help him.. so actually, after all that frustration and angst something good happened

This is why I love your posts...

OK, there was definitely one major unpleasant part I had to deal with the last 24 hours, with visions, heaviness, and then a bad dream to boot. There's a little history here but it ain't strong enough, and I'm not intimidated by it either...

I'm on it, bitches (not you, a general expression)! And I've been going deep (as much as I'd rather do something else).
