It's been called an old wives tale - that people go mad on a Full Moon. Yet the word lunacy comes from the word Luna - meaning moon. Late Saturday/early Sunday - the Full Moon in Capricorn could put test to this concept. It's a doozy.
The key planets involved - along with the opposing Sun and Moon - are Mars , Pluto,Uranus (and Eris - dwarf planet) - the same shit disturbers responsible for so much of our current crazy upheaval - and - recently Mars (anger, aggression) has been triggering Pluto (power/control) - the build up has been palpable.
If you have been having trouble sleeping or relaxing - its probably due to Uranus (the Awakener) - and if you're getting caught up in power struggles or control dramas - that'll be Pluto. Then Mars (already mentioned) - links with Eris (goddess of discord) then Pluto ( the destroyer ) then the Moon (emotions) and Sun (ego). Yikes! Watch out for serious violence or accidents. Keep your head down.
Today I was babysitting my adorable - as well as exhausting - granddaughters (ages 3&4 1/2) . Having just arrived home from several hours at a splash park in the blistering heat - I tripped and fell in my son's garage - while chasing the dog that never comes when you call him - got tangled in a stroller that the dog dodged around - hit my head and shoulder on concrete floor ( not too severe - luckily). Damn dog! Good things he's so cute. Amazing thing is, he picked up on my distress and came back (believe me - he normally NEVER comes when you call him) - so at least - on top of everything else - I didn't have to go chasing the dog for blocks and blocks with two tired kids in tow!
Funny- I started writing this yesterday - I knew about this stuff - need to take my own advice!
Anyway - do check twice when you cross the street. And do let that asshole cut in - so what!? It's not worth it! Don't let yourself be goaded.
With all this volatility in the air - there's enough voltage to blast us through obstacles that are standing in our own way. Just be sure that's really what you need to be doing. Perhaps you could walk around it just as easily. Many people are trigger happy right now, and discernment is more difficult under these intense conditions . The trouble with planets like Pluto, Mars, Uranus - is the tendency to go to extremes - to overdo - overreact - over -compensate.
Remember the serenity prayer:
"Give me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change - the courage to change the things I can - and the wisdom to know the difference. "
In the bigger picture - this Full Moon is the next step in an ongoing process of breakdown/breakthrough/break free. We are shifting through a LOT and it's not over yet. Next up is an extremely powerful and significant eclipse on August 21st - everything leading up to it is clearing the way for another turning point - another moment of significant change. Mars will be involved again so more volatility to come.
Till then - keep in mind- (i. e. be mindful) Shift Happens - Whether we want it to or not.
Last week a beautiful GRAND TRINE IN WATER offered a hint as to how we can dissolve conflict and resolve issues peacefully. Venus Neptune and Jupiter all link to this Full Moon - bringing a message of love and peace.

"Wu Wei (chinese, literally “non-doing”) is an important concept of Taoism and means natural action, or in other words, action that does not involve struggle or excessive effort. Wu wei is the cultivation of a mental state in which our actions are quite effortlessly in alignment with the flow of life."
