Moon Void of Course in Capricorn (6:11 PM EDT)
Moon enters Aquarius (Aug 13th, 11:35 AM EDT)
The Waxing inconjunct includes Venus in Leo - a beautiful, showy potential that’s building to a peak on the Aug 15th Full Moon must be tempered with rules and restraint. While the relationship/financial/self-esteem issue is shining, don’t forget about an important obligation. While this may feel like a downer, you’ll be ignoring it at your peril. Take care of business now - don’t let it slide.
The Moon then conjoins Pluto in the last aspect before it goes VOC. This can be an intense and uncomfortable reminder of the compulsions and power beneath the rules. You’ll get a glimpse of something deeper, but the VOC period will allow you to process the raw truth. What you want/love will be about more than simple desire -there will be deeper undercurrents of jealousy, neediness or fear of loss.
This can tarnish the shine of a glorious moment, but consider that the Shadow adds depth and texture. The intensity tells you it’s the real deal, and the power of your desire is being unlocked. If it really matters, it’s going to be complicated.
As the Moon enters Aquarius, welcome the opportunity to step back from the previous heaviness and gain some perspective. What else can you see now that you’re standing at a distance?
