There's an intensity brewing that has the capacity to become verbally explosive. Mercury (planet of communication) is about to turn direct on Monday. This means it traveled backward into Capricorn, crossed over Pluto, then will turn around and cross back again over Pluto's position as it retraces its steps. This will intensify the Pluto effect on our thoughts and communications. Pluto is deep!
Pluto is also nicknamed 'The Destroyer'
as it acts as a catalyst for change, death and transformation. Due to its power and intensity, this so called 'minor' planet can activate our survival energies and trigger a side of us that is compulsive and controlling, or at the least, intensely probing.
There may be something from the past that needs revealing, facing, expressing. Now is the time!
As Mercury changes direction within this Plutonian field, things are going to be stirred up as the urge to express secrets or previously hidden (or forbidden) information increases. Or there could be a sudden eruption of withheld feelings (Moon = emotions) that have long been left unspoken.
If there is something you have needed to say but have been holding it inside, you may find yourself blurting out the truth over the next few days.
The effect of our expressing long withheld feelings can have a clearing effect and can be ultimately positive, making way for new energy to enter.
But if you are in a situation where you need to be more circumspect about what you say or do not say, as in perhaps a legal situation, or dealing with someone who is highly reactive, do tread carefully.
Leo is a highly dramatic sign. During a Leo Full Moon everything is amped up and on display. Leo is, after all, the king of the jungle.
Leo's crave the limelight and love attention, and the king or queen n us will brook no fools who try and block our light! And rightly so! There is also a very loving, playful side to this majestic persona, and as long as their pride is not challenged, those ruled by Leo will be your loyal friend forever.
What all this is saying is that under this Leo Full Moon, emotional hubris could get some of us in trouble if we feel our ego needs are not being met. With the controlling aspect of Pluto at play, those ego conflicts could trigger explosive reactions and set simmering emotions into flames.
Saturn squaring the Moon's nodes says there is something important to be worked out, yet our core beliefs may be challenged in the process (Saturn in Sagittarius) ; 'You said'... , 'You were supposed to'... , 'I thought' ...!
(Yes you did)
Yet despite this intense dynamic, Jupiter on the North Nodes can open a portal or gateway out of where we have been feeling stuck. Jupiter expands whatever it touches, and in the process, we may expand right out of the old situation completely. Suddenly we realize the old container no longer fits! Seems more than a few lately have taken that opportunity to leave the planet entirely. May their journey be smooth an clear!
Meanwhile, if your own situation or relationship is at a turning point, the next few days could be critical in terms of communication. Now is the time to speak up and let the chips falls where they may. Let the truth be told.
Hopefully you have used the Mercury Retrograde to review and reflect, so that current changes won't take you by surprise.
The light touch of Sun in Aquarius can help us stay objective and help mitigate the effect of Pluto on our interactions. If there's something important that needs to be said, do try and do it with kindness and care. Leo rules the heart!
We 'reap what we sow ' is the message at this time. Breakdown becomes breakthrough!
Love IS the answer! (even if it's tough love)
Happy Full Moon!
