Moon is entering Capricorn from void (making no major aspects) and Mercury has gone retrograde…not the easiest of aspects to navigate fellow star travellers. So let’s examine the terrain to lessen the collateral damage to ship & crew.
The sun in Scorpio is highlighting & amplifying the shadow traits of Capricorn since the moon reflects the light of the sun. This means the issue of ‘responsibility’ may now take center stage in your household or workplace. For instance, you may feel as if you bear all the responsibility & others bear none…or you provide all the structure & others undermine that by not upholding it (This will be exacerbated if you have Cappy moon, sun or rising sign in your birth chart…to get a free one visit astro.com).
If you don’t have much Capricorn in your chart, you may feel those who do, are oppressing you with their stern authority and overbearing rules. Remember we create conflict when we polarize, so if you are experiencing tension around such issues, initiate an open & frank conversation with clear requests to ensure everyone is heard and an agreement for moderation reached.
These are classic father issues, which you may start projecting on the nearest male who you come into contact with at work if you live alone with your cat.
So if you notice you have an interaction with someone which results in your thermometer of inner heat rising, ask yourself ‘how is this similar to how I felt with Dad?’ Once you identify the story, you can step outside of it & examine it, without the same intensity of emotion to fuel it.
Ultimately, the way to diffuse this potential plutonium bomb from exploding in your face today, is to name the shadow & NOT just the other person’s. (Yes! The gift of Xray vision to see other people’s flaws comes very easily during a Scorpio solar transit…to the point where we may feel so overwhelmed by all the faults we see in everyone & everything around us that we exhaust ourselves in martyrdom & just want to escape into a good book or film.)
The key is to acknowledge our own part in the dance. For instance, why are you overdoing, overworking, controlling others, being a strict enforcer of rules? What are you afraid of if you don’t continue these behaviors? We can become so good at doing everything, that those around us accommodate our compulsive need to ‘do’, so what then gives us the right to scapegoat those we love?
Everything in life is a dance…we are all just learning the steps.
