I sat down with a piece of paper to jot down my impressions of the full moon chart, applicable to the American north-east region in particular.
- Uranus 20 degrees/Eris 22 degrees in Aries
- Pluto 17 degrees /Sun 22 degrees in Capricorn
- Moon, exalted, at 22 degrees
- Jupiter in Libra, 22 degrees
Each planet stationed in their native Cardinal signs of 1st, 10th, 4th and 7th houses.
Great stress and tension affects us on a personal, private, and public level. Let us touch on the prominent aspects.
People long for the comforts of home as stoked by the full moon in Cancer, but the economic storm being ridden hard by Pluto in Capricorn has destroyed this ideal and now wherever we find ourselves is our home — no matter how unlikely, surprising, or unbearable it may be. We may be in a state of flux, happy with our situations, or trapped here until the moon cycle completes.
Jupiter is expanding Plutonic aspects for those born during the Pluto in Libra generation of the late ’70s, early ’80s. A desire for equality, fairness, demands for justice will be voiced and desires to control social situations and the behavior of others will be pronounced. The best expression of this expanding power of Jupiter in Libra, touching on Pluto’s old tracks, will be seduction and charm — think marketing, advertising, or romantic conquest in the name of love — at its worst, it will be confidence games exacerbated by a semi-square with Neptune in Pisces, giving steam to illusion. Think too, of others who will “cry wolf” with and eye toward advancing ulterior motives.
Uranus and Eris within 2 degrees in Aries also opposes Jupiter in Libra — a schism of the individual needs versus the community is represented here, where we will do anything to get our way or preserve what fills our ego needs, inviting the Goddess of Discord to work hand in hand with the planet of rebellion. I am reminded of a saying, “Don’t go looking for trouble — trouble knows where to find you.” Communities and relationships can be easily undermined by others looking to leverage their good will or their assets for personal means, to someone else’s detriment. It will do no good to trust without also verifying and vetting whatever comes your way.
This is an intense cross with little relief. Take a hint from the crab and stay inside one’s shell for awhile. Here, both Neptune and Saturn may provide respective relief in the downtime if we choose to isolate ourselves until the storm passes by — finding solace in a temporary addiction or escape — for does not the sleeping medicine of a doctor give benefit to the patient’s pain? — taken in small doses — and give us a chance to overlook the faults of others with suitable forgiveness, or spend this alone time building or reinforcing our foundations with Saturn.
Mercury prepares to carry this message from Saturn to Pluto, where if you do not build wisely, Pluto may be compelled to blow your house down.
