For those who may be interested in the lunation cycle in general, the week before the Full Moon, the 1st Quarter Moon, marks a period tension and crisis that leads up to the illumination of the Full Moon.
The Quarter Moon in the current lunation was particularly strong, in addition to its background Venus-Mars and Uranus-Pluto squares, because the Moon was at 0 Capricorn and it squared the Sun at 0 Aries. So both then were positioned at what is referred to as the powerful Aries point.
This may account for the difficulties and challenges that so many experienced or felt last week, and it would have had more particular influence in charts with points at 0 cardinal and at 15 degrees fixed. That is, sensitive points to the Quarter Moon in your chart would be those that conjunct 0 degrees of cardinal, and also those that are half-way, 45 degrees, between the 0 cardinal points.
