Here we go folks, a powerful Full Moon culminated after midnight, exact at 12:07 am, EST. With the Moon in Cardinal Earth - Capricorn, opposed to the Sun in Cardinal Water - Cancer, feelings are running like emotional currents toward what you want to achieve, want to secure or want to protect. There's every reason not to push the tide right now, but to take calm steps toward achieving those goals and not to let anyone push your buttons.
The caution here lies in the Moon being conjunct that powerhouse transformer Pluto and both opposing aggressive Mars aligned with the Sun. The Moon has sway over the public and emotions, while Pluto is all about breaking down structures that aren't working and need to be rebuilt. These two celestial bodies couldn't be further apart!
The moon is our satellite, orbiting our home - Mother Earth, and being so much closer, moves through a new sign of the zodiac every 2.5 days. She moves into Aquarius tomorrow. Emotions of safety and security arise with the Moon in either Cancer or Capricorn. The last two days have affected the public's concern over the well-being of the Earth. The reason it's so intense is Pluto's, (the most distant traveler in our solar system), extended stay in Capricorn for the last several years and where he will remain for a few more! Pluto here brings up the issue of who has the power and control over big business and governing structures and where they're not working and need to be changed. This is a part of the cycle of transformation that will make the world a much different place for our children and children's children.
Mars is all about action, aggression and desire. He represents struggles and war and tends toward impulsiveness. The Sun represents energy, vitality and the will and tends toward ambition and self-expression. With the planets of energy and action aligned in Cancer, there's a push toward acting on our desires based on our emotions... not a lot of thought goes into these tendencies to just do something! Again, who is pushing your buttons and how do you want to react, or not? Make sure your actions are well thought-out before you take them.
How do you personalize all that? By maintaining as much peace and calmness as you can and not over-reacting to outside challenges. Turn off the news, turn down the volume on rhetoric of all kinds and ask yourself if you're alright right now. If you are and your needs are being met, even if you want something better, then steadily work toward your goals and don't act out of fear. Ignore the button-pushers and keep on keeping on! If you are not feeling safe and secure, take steps to regain your power. This is a time to feel empowered, to take steps to move forward. Whatever you do, stay positive and don't look back unless you want to go back to the conditions you're trying to change.
In the meantime, remember to keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground... stay calm and carry on~
