We are in the Capricorn Full Moon Window! The full moon happens tomorrow night (Wednesday July 1) at 7:20PM PDT.
This is the reality check moon. Capricorn is a practical sign, it’s grounded, like it’s element, Earth.
One of the things that I didn’t really think about until I began to study astrology is that the full moon always happens with the moon is opposite the sun on the wheel of the zodiac. Unlike the new moon, which occurs in the same sign as the sun does and in harmony with the sun, the full moon opposes the sun. Our outer world (the sun) and inner world (the moon) are staring each other down; they both want the same thing, but the way they go about it is completely different. Moon is in no-nonsense Capricorn, and the sun is in the sensitive, nurutring sign of Cancer. This isn’t to say that Capricorn can’t be nurturing, but nurturing is not what it’s known for, it’s more the Chairman of the Board type. “It’s not personal, it’s just business,” but that’s not what’s important to the moon, which happens to rule the sign Cancer, where the sun is shining.
Opposite signs are just that – opposite. They share a common motivation, in this case – security – but their means to the end are very different. So there’s that.
This is a moon that can see where we’ve stretched ourselves too thin and reminds us of boundaries. What is safe, what is a stretch, and what is impossible? Get down to the nitty gritty and focus on what’s right in front of you, and check your priorities. This moon wants to see it’s hard work pay off, or you can forget about it. This moon is good for dropping old habits and replacing them with new, more suitable and productive habits.
Moon is conjunct Pluto, God/Goddess of the Underworld, the planet of Unavoidable Truth. What needs to go is laid bare is staring you down, you can look away, but why would you waste this opportunity see what’s really happening and what will help you move forward on your path? Also: Cardinal Cross alert – Sun and moon square the lunar nodes in Aries (south node) and Libra (north node) which are calling attention to matters of self and other. How are you contributing to the world? What legacy are you leaving? You came here with a purpose that only your heart knows – no one call tell you what it is, you won’t find it on a book, on TV, on the radio, not even on Facebook.
Meanwhile, Jupiter and Venus are still conjunct in big hearted Leo with a trine to Uranus, lending to a sense of anything being possible, as long as it’s centered in love. This is the time to recognize your shine and share it.
When in doubt, Lead with Love.
