Take the high road on the upcoming Full Moon at 09° 55′ Capricorn on 1 July 2015, 07:20 PM PDT! The reason I’m suggesting that is because the Moon is widely conjunct Pluto in Capricorn and Pluto is very clear about reaping what we have sown. Pragmatic, earthy Capricorn is known for setting goals with care because this is a sign that knows how much work it takes to achieve those.
There is a compartmentalized quality to this Full Moon with the luminaries and the planets they aspect in earth and water in one compartment, and the fire and air planets in another. There is a wide inconjunct between Mercury in Gemini and Pluto in Capricorn connecting the two sides but it is rapidly waning. The Moon’s Nodes (North Node in Libra and South Node in Aries) form a T-Square with Mars in Cancer, again acting as a conduit between the elements.
On the earth and water side, the Cancer Sun is still traveling with Mars in Cancer and consequently has more visible backbone than usual. Any time the Sun in a cardinal sign conjoins Mars we get overtones of Aries, and we all know Aries goes after what it wants. Helping offset the aggressiveness of the Sun-Mars conjunction is a trine to Neptune in Pisces. Neptune brings out Cancer’s nurturing side and encourages everyone to have compassion for those in need. This is an excellent time to seek support for various organizations dedicated to feeding those left homeless due to war and natural disasters. Neptune is also sextile to the Capricorn Moon who excels at taking care of the practicalities involved in helping so many people.
Representing fire and air is a small triangle with Mercury in Gemini at the apex, sextile both Uranus in Aries and the Venus-Jupiter conjunction in Leo. It is all about seeking inspiration, enjoying life and seeing a multitude of possibilities. Mercury in Gemini had a tough time during its recent retrograde and now is very happy to celebrate with the fire planets. The theme for this aspect pattern can only be “Laissez les bons temps rouler” (let the good times roll).
That T-Square with Mars in Cancer and Moon’s Nodes, all in cardinal signs, has a restless, edgy energy that pushes for resolution. The Libra North Node has consistently called for negotiating compromise and it is no different this time. This one looks to me like having to sit down and get to work on resolving long standing family issues. Things could get heated and there might be ancient history pulled out to make a point but persist because the healing will be worth it.
Finding common ground will take some work on this Full Moon in Capricorn. The fire and air contingent will probably have very different priorities than the earth and water side. Maybe it is a good thing hardworking Saturn in Scorpio is unaspected on this lunation. At 29° Scorpio Saturn is in serious clean up mode and continues to put a great deal of pressure on those with personal planets at 29° in the fixed signs. No rest for the wicked and all that. 🙂
There is never a better time to practice being kind and patient than under stressful conditions and this Full Moon qualifies! Be wary of expectations too. Yet we still have reason to celebrate and enjoy the sweetness of Life. Be well and stay strong.

Well the north node is conjunct my natal Libra Jupiter and Uranus. Progressed mars is 10 degrees Capricorn. Feeling blah. Were are my playmates these days?
Hard to dance with Saturn in Scorpio hanging around your neck! You may get a reprieve when first Venus, then Jupiter, conjoin your Sun in the later part of July thru early August. One can hope . . . 😀
Seems like forever. Tense doesn’t describe it! xoxox
I love your writing. It’s not manipulative, like a lot of astrology blogs. I think that’s the “non-judgmental” part, of your profile description. You are wise. Thank you. It also helps that I’m a Libra “living with Pluto”, too! I love this summing-up of this (for me) intense full-moon. My Moon is in Capricorn. And we Capricorn-moon folks don’t cry often, but I bawled my eyes out yesterday evening; later, noticed the almost-full moon in the sky; and decided to look it up. Your writing was very helpful, to me. Thank you.
Good advice. This Full Moon conjunct my own Moon. It’s been a week of serious disappointments. The high road is a silent road, these days. If I say what’s on my mind I will pay dearly…I can feel it. I can only hope one day I get to express how I really feel.
I feel this is true for me, too. It’s complicated, eh? People with Moon in Capricorn are “known” to “be complicated”, emotionally. I think what it IS is that if we say how we feel, it is going to be too much, for most people. Especially “responsible adult” type people (ie. Capricorn types!) Those people will not tolerate the UGLY side, of themselves. They make a business of ignoring it. So when we bring it up, it is mightily disheartening for them, and they have ALL the right answers to singe us back with, waiting!
Yes, I find myself biting-back things too! So much! I don’t want to tell people off for being control-freaks, on me… and yet, I DO want to tell them off! In the end, I kind of just decided that I will ignore the control-freak, completely business-like nonsense. I want to be free, even though I’m “plagued” with this Moon in Capricorn. I am not “ruled by” my Capricorn moon. I can still be hopeful and idealistic, if I want to be!
I love that, Leanne. Ignoring the control freak nonsense is desirable. I want to be free, too.
