It has long been known that a Full Moon is when you’re most likely to get trouble, whether you’re a policeman walking the streets or working in a mental hospital. The Moon represents instinct and emotion, and a Full Moon is when they are at their height. Particularly when the Moon is in its own sign of Cancer, as it is now.
Last night around 11pm, 4 hours before the Moon was exactly full, a bunch of us were sitting around the table when Crash! - our front window had been smashed. I ran outside in my socks and managed to catch a neighbour in the act of closing her front door. She is in the process of splitting up with her partner, who was round at my place, and had clearly been listening at the window and heard something she didn’t want to hear! Anyway, having a few glasses of wine inside me, the window of her front door didn’t last very long.
The neighbour concerned has spent the day in hiding, and her sister approached me in the supermarket like the world had ended. But I realised I found the whole incident hilarious, much to the relief of the sister.
Not only were instinct and emotion heightened and in a way unleashed, at the moment the shovel came through our window Mars and Pluto were straddling the IC at about 6 Capricorn: revenge (Pluto) attack (Mars) on my home (IC). The strength of Mars and Pluto suggests this was a pretty heavyweight attack, even though only a window got broken. And my friend who is the now ex-partner knew straightaway who’d done it, but also in the moment experienced it as a sort of spirit message, as something trying to wake him up, as we have all been trying to do for months! He’s at the start of a Neptune square Venus transit.
Of course, the Mars-Pluto-IC also applies to me, as I’d retaliated in less than a minute, and the IC was conjunct my natal Mars. With this astrology, it was just as well that the attack wasn’t more serious, because there may not have been limits to what I’d have done! So there it is, instinct ruling during the Full Moon!
