Moon @ 12 Capricorn 13
Sun @ 12 Cancer 13
The Moon — star of the Full Moon show — is in Capricorn — just a few degrees past an exact conjunction with Pluto.
This means the not only the Moon, but Pluto is opposing the Sun. The public has a deep feelings about money, finance, big business, and power – that are coming to the surface and are not necessarily positive, as symbolized by a square of collective Uranus to Pluto. The Moon is square Uranus at the Full Moon. Important, life-changing choices are becoming more obvious, and more clear to more people.
And since the Full Moon is in Earth-sign Capricorn, stress we usually keep hidden can surface in ways that are physical and real. On a realistic level, we can realize how our attitudes about what is socially acceptable may have deeper roots than we thought (Moon conjunct Pluto) and may not serve us as well as we thought (square Uranus). We can learn about this indirectly.
With Moon in business-like Capricorn, you may get an enlightening view into patronizing attitudes about emotions. We will see more clearly (if we look beyond blame) at how patronizing words (Mercury YOD) not-so-indirectly create defensive attitudes. Being “emotional” can be dismissed as unrealistic or delusional. Being “rational” give you an excuse – you don’t even have to listen to what “emotional” people say. No one is 100% emotional or 100% rational 100% of the time — no one is that one-dimensional. So, lifting the veil at the Full Moon, and noting there is always a payoff – what does being “big daddy” get you…
When you successfully divorce yourself from emotions, you lose your guidance system for well-being. And this can be more of an obvious problem for those who habitually patronize and condescend, and label as defensive, anyone with an opposing view. And if they respond, they are obviously emotional and defensive. How does that person’s point of view trickle into the conversation? Usually, it doesn’t and people feel alienated, disenfranchised.
Too bad. The essence of the Cancer Sun is belonging. If we’re going to have a productive prosperous society, it needs to start with honest and equal discussions. Blaming the other side for being “emotional” or “patronizing” is overlooking what each side can bring to the discussion. Instead, the discussion is downgraded. This is a Full Moon in Capricorn with a YOD to Mercury, a time we can get some insight on how we use our power (Pluto-Moon oppose Sun) to keep emotions in check. Self-control is important to work towards. Patronizing others for being emotional is the bait that throws us off course. Instead of using power-speech to control others, this is a good time to look more deeply into issues of dependency and fear — ideas that keep us fighting and separated — from each other and our authentic Self.
There is important information that may be crucial, yet not come to light and remain secret so we can continue as if it doesn’t exist.
There are 2 YODS in this chart that fit together – this is a moment of FATE.
YOD 1 – Mercury is the focal point. Base is Pluto sextile Chiron.
YOD 2- Pluto-conjunct-(FULL)Moon is focal. Base is Venus-conjunct-Jupiter sextile Mercury
Mercury and Pluto are inconjunct AND the focal-points of YODs. Information given and is received indirectly. This Full Moon can show us how the need to belong (Cancer) to a group (Uranus) can influence our thinking (Mercury YOD) enough to make major life-changing decisions (square Uranus).
Expect talking-points that push buttons you didn’t know you had.

*Hindsight Note: after posting this blog about the YODs, an announcement was made — coinciding with the Full Moon and the perfection of the YODs — about the discovery of a new physics particle. It seems appropriate that the YOD, called the “Finger of God” coincides with the discovery of what scientists are calling “the God particle”:
