With a Full Moon eclipse happening, we may experience a sensation of pressure rising, which will have the sensation of pushing at loggerheads, deadlock or stalemate.

Much of the year’s most daunting astrology has been in Capricorn. All that has happened to society the past three months we can attribute to the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in that sign.
