FULL MOON IN CAPRICORN JULY 9, 2017
All Full Moons are about illumination; bringing forth into consciousness what has been nurtured in the unconscious. This Full Moon in Capricorn is about manifesting the intentions which were “seeded” at the last Cancerian New Moon of June 23. Capricorn is the cardinal Earth sign which signifies our connection to Mother Earth, our traditions, our ancestral lineage, and spiritual roots. Capricorn grounds us in “physicality”; it allows us to build a solid foundation for the future. Capricorn’s energy is not for the dilettante or the immature; it is the sign of Mastery, but we must be committed, focused and disciplined to achieve our goals. Capricorn’s energy teaches that if we “walk our talk”, we will succeed. Capricorn is the sign that teaches us self- responsibility, and that karmically, we evolve from children to adults. In esoteric astrology, Capricorn is the sign of the Initiate, as well as the Adept. It is the “Hermit” of the tarot deck, whose message is to seek our own inner counsel and listen to the messages from Spirit. The planet which rules the sign of Capricorn is Saturn, also known as the “karmic teacher”. Saturn rules the concept of three dimensional “time” and physical boundaries. There are no short-cuts when we are under the auspices of Capricorn and Saturn. It is essential to understand the importance of “good timing”, as well as patience. Shamanic teachers embody this aspect of Capricorn: by honoring the Mother Earth and all her healing properties and by respecting our physical bodies with the proper use of plant medicines, herbs and stones. They also know the secret of “no time” and “dream time”. We are learning how to stretch time and become more in synch with our multidimensional aspects.
Moon Conjunct Pluto in Capricorn opposite Sun and Mars in Cancer:
This can be a very complex, if no volatile, aspect if we are not in touch with our own emotions (or we operate from denial rather than from awareness). There may be a strong likelihood for projecting our own anger/shadow stuff onto others. Our insecurities may trigger strong emotional reactions and power struggles with others , if we do not take emotional responsibility for our thoughts and actions. (All we have to do is turn on the evening news to see how this is being played out in the collective; the bigger the ego, the harder they fall ).
The transformational planet, Pluto, is also within one degree of the Full Moon in Capricorn. (In astrology, we call this a “conjunction”). This means that no stone will be left unturned getting to the bottom of things….secrets will be uncovered…Pluto also has to do with “the Shadow” world of big business, power and world governments. Capricorn is the sign that has to do with money, finances and material security. When these two join, worlds may collide. The chart of the U.S. as a Cancerian country (born on the 4th of July) is directly impacted by these planetary pictures. In this country, there may be a flare up of public resistance to new rules and regulations brought on by economic cuts and setbacks. However, there is no way to stay stuck in the past bemoaning the “good old days” with these aspects. Evolution is always challenging; but it is inevitable. The breakdown of the old systems is already in motion. However, Pluto will give us the courage to move through the collective undertow of fear, if we have the courage to take responsibility in our own lives . We all need some semblance of material security in order to live, but the karmic lesson here is that “security” begins within you. Listen to your own body; honor the Earth, her resources, and the life forms on it. In your own life, release what no longer serves you. “Hoarding” on any level is a symptom of fear. Capricorn is the sign of self-discipline and self-responsibility, Pluto in Capricorn is all about reconstructing the old systems. As with any successful crebuilding project, demolition precedes new construction.
