Full moons are inherently dramatic. The lights go up. To some, this is romantic. Others feel it’s important to howl like a wolf when the moon is full. I don’t think it’s possible to look at the moon when it’s full and not have a response to it. You’re going to feel something or have some kind of thought.
When I see the full moon, I’m instantly reminded of the marvelous quality of our universe. I feel glad to be alive and able to see such a phenomena. Full moons are meaningful. They mark time, in their own way.
Eclipses tend to scare people who follow astrology. They may even scare people who don’t follow astrology. They don’t scare me.
This is not because I am brave or stupid or rebelliously counter-culture. It’s because I observed this for more than 30 years and if there were a reason to hunker down every time there was an eclipse, by now, I’d know it. These events have to be considered, case by case.
With that said, this full moon / lunar eclipse in Capricorn will be powerful and felt on a deep level. There’s a good chance that the effects of this eclipse with be harsh. You can try to work with this energy; that’s what I’m going to do. But outer planet, Pluto is involved here and something may happen that is completely out of your hands.
Setting that aside since there is nothing we can do about it; click to see the chart of the lunar eclipse in Capricorn. Even a novice can see the tension.
You’re likely to find yourself in a stand-off with something during this period. You might call it a power (Pluto) struggle but I don’t think that best describes this energy and I’ll tell you why: Mars is not involved. No one is pushing here. There’s a desire to control or contain yourself or the other person, so what? So your sky doesn’t fall, what else?
To fare well here, you’ll have to work to see how similar the other person is to you! Matter of fact, it’s likely you have the same goal, though you may not perceive this, easily.
The tendency will be to oppress or block, whatever it is that scares you. I’m talking about things or people who may very well scare you to death.
I don’t think the blocking will work. Maybe that’s the lesson here.

Last, the eclipse is at 24 degrees. If you’re like me, with planets in Cardinal signs between 14-29 degrees, you can expect to be directly affected. I’m going to try to track this closely. Get the newsletter to follow along.
