The June 2nd Full Moon (at 11 degrees Sagittarius) will include a Yod to Pluto in Capricorn. The May 18th New Moon also featured a Yod to Pluto, but the energy will be more fiery this time (transiting Mars is the activator of this Yod, rather than Mercury Rx).
A Full Moon culmination in Sag suggests a push into the unknown, as a response to whatever's been building. Maybe this will be an escape (Sag is the sign of exploration). Mercury Rx will be close by (at 7 degrees Gemini) and it will be trining the North Node in Libra, continuing that theme of movement towards the future (albeit one that involves Mercury Rx...revision, a closer look, or a contact from the past). Yes, this could be the Moon that accelerates that past association to the next chapter.
However, Neptune (at 9 degrees Pisces) will hit this Full Moon will an illusory square. Neptune square anything in Sag means biiiig dreams and limitless ideals. No boundaries. Great if you're setting off an adventure, but it demands careful consideration. What story will be fuelling this leap? Pay attention to the narrative. Will the details line up with reality, or will they be spun to suit the mood of the moment?
The Yod features Pluto Rx (at 15 degrees Capricorn) inconjunct Mars (at 15 degrees Gemini...close enough to add even more fire to this Moon) and Jupiter (ruler of Sag) at 16 degrees Leo. Jupiter will sextile Mars, creating boldly optimistic actions and choices. There will be a powerful urge to go for it, take that leap, embrace the faith and run with your dreams. But Pluto Rx as the focal point will demand focus and accountability. Pluto in Capricorn is the powerful taskmaster; nothing means anything unless it can provide measurable empowerment. The glorious leap must land you on higher ground. This Full Moon will not be a lateral move.
And the prevailing currents of energy will be shoving you in that direction (up). Yods have a way of herding you towards an end point that's described by the focal planet. If your goal isn't empowering/strengthening/ambitious, you'll have difficulty making it happen. Or, you may find yourself embroiled in a power struggle with someone else. Pluto power struggles are evidence that you're being challenged to evolve. If you find yourself blocked, or the recipient of outright aggression (Pluto inconjunct Mars can be quite hostile, and Pluto inconjunct Jupiter can be fanatical) look closely at your goal. If you achieved it (be honest) would you be in a stronger position than you are now?
The overall energy of this Moon is wild and a bit frantic. There will be a strong urge to bolt for the horizon, and that may be your best bet. Just remember that there is more than one horizon, so choose your direction carefully.
If you have natal or progressed planets/angles/Nodes from:
- 7 to 13 degrees of the Mutable signs, you'll feel the Full Moon
- 11 to 16 degrees Capricorn, Cancer, Leo or Gemini, you'll feel the Yod
