Full Moon Aspects

Full Moon opposite Mercury makes it harder to share your feelings because of scrambled or polarized thinking. The Sun with Mercury means your thinking may become selfish or overly rational, lacking in empathy. Arguments can result from misunderstandings or emotional biases such as tribalism, patriotism or racism.

Sensitive discussion topics and negotiations will likely be problematic. But this is a good full moon for spending time in reflection, or chatting with a mentor about some of your feelings which might be holding you back.

Full Moon sextile Pluto is not a strong aspect at over 4 degrees but Mercury trine Pluto (1°23′) is. So Pluto has an important and positive influence on this full moon. It helps you focus and understand things at a deeper level. It helps you get in touch with your feelings, especially your deeply buried emotions.

More intense personal interactions will show exactly how you feel about someone and how they feel about you. Relationship will evolve to a deeper level or you will be free to move on. Like a psychologist you can deeply probe under the surface to solve mysteries or investigate crimes and secrets.

Full moon opposite minor planet Sedna suggests the rationalizations and difficulty in communicating emotionally may have something to do with deeply buried memories of cataclysmic events like floods and tsunamis. Sedna seems to be associated with climate change, especially as it relates to the oceans and extreme weather events.
