"Women are still in emotional bondage as long as we need to worry that we might have to make a choice between being heard and being loved."

-- Marianne Williamson

We're already feeling a bit touchy due to Mercury's tour of Cancer. The planet of communication is a bit of a moody camper in this cardinal Water sign and, on June 7, the extra stress of transformative Pluto in controlling Capricorn causes immense inner conflict. If we deny our feelings or try to control our emotional reactions until they reach a boiling point, this tense planetary war could create an explosion. If we feel others are trying to control us, the feeling of wanting to throw a huge tantrum may be irresistible.

There is a real need to have our feelings heard, understood and nurtured at this time. However, if we feel like others are turning a cold shoulder or trying to shut down our feelings, there will also be hell to pay. The key to surviving this intense inner tug-of-war is to give voice to feelings in a calm, grounded and useful manner.

Pluto in Capricorn asks us to dig deep into the moral fabric of our integrity in order to find the transformative truth. Mercury in Cancer asks us to give voice to our feelings and sensitivity without getting stuck in a mood that simply wastes time and energy. Pluto in Capricorn can help us break out of emotional ruts that involve our thinking and communication patterns. If we tend to spiral into complaining, whining or other babyish behaviors, this planetary pull can help pull us out of childish behavior.
