Waning Inconjunct between the Capricorn Moon and Gemini Sun (28 deg)
Mercury and Mars in Cancer opposite Pluto Rx in Capricorn (22 deg)
After the results of June 17th’s Full Moon, the Waning Inconjunct adds another wrinkle. The truth or the story/promise needs to be adjusted according to a rule. You may not want to apply this rule - it may feel strict, unfair or harsh. But there are certain structures that need to be put in place. This will help you narrow your focus or make the wise choice.
Mercury rules the Gemini Sun, and along with Mars opposes Pluto Rx. This adds more tension to the inconjunct- forceful (Mars) words (Mercury) are extremely challenged or challenging. Subterranean truths are dredged up by obsessive actions and thoughts. In emotional Cancer, it will be very difficult to have a balanced, civil discussion. Nothing will be logical - there may be tears, angry neediness, words screamed from the child that sits inside all of us.
You may be pummeled by someone’s truth, or you may project anger/obsessiveness onto someone else. Projection is always a risk with the opposition. As always with Pluto, awareness is the best defense - think carefully before you act and speak, especially if you feel that a truth must be delivered. If someone comes at you, recognize that much of what’s happening is probably projection or attempts to manipulate through intimidation.
Can anything positive come out of today’s aspects? Well, Pluto always reveals what lies beneath. If you’re very careful, the union of words and actions can be focused for maximum effectiveness, using brutal honesty as fuel. Pluto is the subconscious or secrets and (if your eyes are wide open) can be focused through the conscious expression of words united with actions. You can obliterate a lie with this power. You can also destroy something perfectly good.
This takes us back to the Waning Inconjunct - that annoying rule or limit can act as a brake. Select your words with care and apply discipline, maturity and judgement.
