Sun Sq. Chiron // Capricorn Full Moon
“Truth carries with it confrontation. Truth demands confrontation; loving confrontation, but confrontation nonetheless.” Friday, July 8th, the Cancer Sun Squares Chiron in Aries. Chiron was a healer, philosopher & teacher who, ironically, could not heal himself. Chiron’s placement in one’s Natal chart reveals a core wound that can take a lifetime to work through & master. However, our Chiron placement is also our secret power. As we navigate pain, we gain wisdom that we can pass on to others. The protective Cancer Sun’s Square to self-serving Chiron in Aries, uncovers fears & wounds related to our Identity, Ego, & life path. We might stumble upon “weaknesses” in the foundation of our Souls. This transit says “face your issues” — it doesn’t care about making it easy for you; but you can understand the energy and work with it, with a little compassion and grace. Saturday, July 9th, sensitive Mercury in Cancer squares expansive Jupiter in action - oriented Aries. Too much confidence can lead to errors during this distracting aspect. Overestimating a situation can lead to destruction & embarrassment, and too much optimism is reckless. The Full Moon on the 13th, in Saturn abiding Capricorn, comes locked and loaded with a conjunction Pluto, while Venus in Gemini trines Saturn in Aquarius. It’s a Moon full of sacrifices & compromises, when we must be realistic about our expectations. It is an time ideal for commitment & making long-term investments as this serious lumination encourages us to let go of old habits and focus on our ourselves rather than seek approval from others. Capricorn is most natural in the 10th House of Career, so this Moon really speaks to the nature of our professional lives. Full Moons can be dramatic as they’re a period of releasing & purging, but they are also powerful times of manifestation as we get clear on what we don’t want. Pluto reveals that there will be no way back to the past, however, there is a large gap between desire and reality to bridge. The Full Moon sentences us to seriousness about what it takes to achieve our goals & better manage our lives.
