This year, the 4th of July might feel a bit more intense than usual. The Sun is in family-oriented Cancer, which is appropriate for trips to the sea and cold beer around the grill. Ah, the good life! However ... with mighty Pluto in Capricorn in direct opposition to the Sun on Independence Day, you might feel more inner darkness than sweetness and light.

Pluto has been in the serious sign of Capricorn since 2008, and it was deeply implicated in the overwhelming, life-changing Grand Cardinal Cross that peaked in April. This planet isn’t joking around -- it wants you to face your demons. As it traverses the solid ground of Capricorn, it makes us contemplate our power and our weaknesses.

The current configuration places this dichotomy exactly within our family dynamics, so ancient issues could come up on the 4th and the days around it.

If you feel vulnerable and exposed, your first instinct could be to pounce and wield your power by yelling, controlling, or otherwise dominating one of your loved ones. Instead of rushing to judgment in a flurry of self-protection, try to gently confront your own feelings. When your brother, sister, cousin, mother, father or even a close friend does something that irks you, what’s it really bringing up? Is a childhood wound being exposed?

If yes, remind yourself that you’re an adult now, and you don’t need to lash out to claim your space in the world.

The ideal is to balance the light and dark energy flowing through your universe -- forcing the pain back down is just as bad as letting yourself be totally consumed by it. Copious amounts of self-love and compassion for your beloveds are essential right now.

The more consciousness you bring to the table, the better it will be for all. With enough self-awareness, you’ll keep the fireworks in the sky where they belong -- and your barbecue will be a relaxing antidote to the stress of everyday life!
