Today’s full moon in Capricorn casts a baleful glow on our world.
The Moon is in its detriment in the Goat and is relatively close to the undermining Pluto in the 2nd house of this chart set for London. Financially, economically and politically this is a very difficult and trying time for all, and especially the British people.
The Sun and Moon are in good aspect to Uranus and the Moon’s North Node in a Taurus 6th house. There is a karmic influence here and the possibility of sudden changes economically, financially and in the British nation’s health and working practices, spurred on, it might seem, by the general public who are showing increasing signs of losing faith in the status quo. It is clearly time for change; yet the British, and all of us, should be mindful about what we wish for.
Later this month, Mars conjoins with Uranus and the North Node in Taurus and this suggests the period at end of July and beginning of August is going to see much sudden, surprising activity in financial markets and world economies. Ultimately, all of this might well be for the benefit of everyone – in the long run, although it might not seem that way at the time.
Jupiter is ruler of this chart, and ruler of the 4th house of the homeland, is found in an Aries 5th house. For the British at least this suggests that they can make positive and creative change right now if they are pioneering enough. Private enterprise, as opposed to state control, is always the best remedy for humanity to dig itself out of a whole, as are the promotion of the family – always the best organic buffer against a cruel world.
This chart, set for London (and therefore Great Britain) is a bit of humdinger.
I don’t often sensationalise but this is a really tense and trying looking chart, with the Sun/Moon falling exactly on the ascendant/descendant, and with the sun very close also to Algol – the demon star – in a Taurus first house, along with revolutionary Uranus and the North Node, insisting that we look at ourselves realistically, whilst trying to refrain from extremes.
Things are really coming home to roost right now and change is afoot which may seem difficult to deal with, especially with Moon conjunct the South Node – we really do have to learn to let go emotionally.
Epoch Making Times
And for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, we are living in pretty epoch making times, so watch out – but this also goes for the world too. The activated and very tense Taurus/Scorpio axis is likely to highlight and bring about drastic changes in financial markets and the world economy around now.
Added to that, the Sun and Moon are square to Saturn in Aquarius in the 10th house. There are likely challenges and counter challenges to authority and leadership and in diplomatic circles too, but with Mercury now retrograde in Gemini, beware also of rumours of wars and other disasters, economic or otherwise – they may not be true, or, we may only find about what really went on when Mercury turns direct next month.
Something Has To Give?
Something has got to give around now, with all this fixed sign activity and racking up of tension to a crescendo.
There is also an emotionally volatile Mars/Neptune conjunction in Pisces in the 11th house, also aspecting the Sun/Moon, and acting almost like a pressure valve release. We may see a very difficult, emotional event occur which will affect the general public, but make sure to read all sources of information.
For Britain (London) the midheaven is conjunct awful Pluto too, only undermining the government and other authorities, which may prompt them into drastic action.
And with Uranus also at 15 degrees Taurus in the first house, these are changeful times indeed for Great Britain, and we should expect sudden events.
The only saving grace in this chart is the 12th house Jupiter in Aries, along with Venus conjunct Chiron. We are probably going to have to dig deep, especially in Britain around this period, but so long as we have confidence in ourselves and look forward to new beginnings we can get through most eventualities. We are likely going to feel wounded to some degree, especially within ourselves and in relating to others an even as nations, but it will be an important lesson to learn, one which can help other peoples in the future.
I also drew a three card spread for the May 16 Full Moon, which cast an alternative light upon possible events. If we are broadminded, with courage and confidence, I think we can get through any crisis. There will be new opportunities emerging in the background which can result in overcoming problems and create the circumstances for new relationships and agreements which will put us in a much better place than we are at present.
I certainly hope the latter is the case, but we may have to experience a moment of shock first.
This full Moon chart is set for Westminster, seat of the British government.
We are on the threshold of major political and economic changes, transformations and revelations everywhere and no more so than in Great Britain; they have already begun, but may come to a head around the day of the full moon.
Will the Prime Minister and the government survive? I don’t know, but this juncture looks particularly rocky and the road ahead uncertain. The British people, represented by a dignified and culminating Moon, and also the 4th house, look as though they’ve had quite enough to say the least of the whole situation.
So this full Moon will particularly affect the government and the people’s perception of it. But with Mercury retrograde it might be difficult, at first, to see what is truly going on, although the sense of shock will hard to conceal in certain quarters. Beware of the hype, the spin. Things which have been hidden could well be shown, and it may be quite upsetting for many.
