Full Moon in Capricorn
The moon has entered Scorpio for the next 2.5 days, the Sun has entered Cancer, and Jupiter in Pisces stations Retrograde. It’s a tug-of-war for closeness & intensity, security - offset by a guest appearance of the forceful hand of GRACE. The Full Moon in Capricorn approaches this week (Thursday, June 24th), signaling the white flag of release. I say Grace because within this big push - pull energy, there’s bound to be a misstep, that feeling in your belly of coming across something you didn’t see before, and now something’s gotta give. GRACE steps in to remind us to have and keep Faith, as well as extend that Faith to others - with no expectations but to conduct ourselves as best as we can going forward. Mercury stations direct this week and we’re beginning to determine the tone for the next 6 months as we reflect on the past 6 months. (Remember, every Full Moon has a New Moon that corresponds to it. We look back to the New Moon in Capricorn, which was on Tuesday, January 12th 2021.) That New Moon was the first New Moon of 2021, which coincided with the end of the 2020 Fall Eclipse Season. THIS Capricorn Full Moon coincides with the end of the 2021 Summer Eclipse Season. Do you see how the cycles work together? Think back to where you were in January, it was very clean slate energy - what did you make of it then, and how can you do better this turn? What goes around does come around with Jupiter’s retrograde and Mars, now setting our actions ablaze in Leo, will ensure any action, positive or negative, will be forcefully reprimanded or warmly rewarded so that we can correctly set off from this week’s Full Moon. We have to note Venus’s role in this, as Venus is playing out her last few moves in Cancer, until entering Leo on the 27th. Venus in Cancer won’t go out without letting us know where we firmly need to stay nurturing ourselves. Capricorn and Cancer run on an Axis together as Sister Signs. Capricorn the Father energy and Cancer the Mother, and they serve to eliminate everything that has to do with dependency, and uplift anything that makes you self-sufficient. Capricorn is stern with its delivery while Cancer expresses itself emotionally; Cancer nurtures & Capricorn protects. So as Mama & Papa settle up again, they ask you to have Grace. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the firm instructor. Saturn sees when the rules aren’t working for us and the Cosmos sends new transits your way, tweaked just a little, to see what you can make of it this time. Jupiter in Pisces will dip back into Aquarius at the end of July, renewed duality will quip into play then, but for now the focus calls more towards what you can do spiritually versus so much ingenuity. What can you feel, who can you become from the inside, how deeply can you surrender to what’s best for you? What if you let Faith & Grace consume you, while allowing Saturn’s protective boundaries to guide you? Finding Capricorn in your Natal chart will show you where you need to Release this week; when we let go of any restrictive ideals holding us back, we create space for something wonderful, and powerful, to take its place. “And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince.
