Capricorn Full Moon

I love Capricorn full moons. There I said it. Capricorn is practical, prudent and conservative. I’m not talking politics although it does tend to skew more to the right, but conservative in that it feels a need to ‘conserve’. At the same time, Capricorn is a natural leader not because it is loud and noisy but because it knows how to organize from small groups of people to large businesses and in fact Capricorn rules corporations and government. When it is processed Moon in Capricorn can connect the right people to the right people and up productivity out anyone he or she touches. When it is unprocessed Moon in Capricorn is highly competitive, keeps up with The Joneses, pretentious and takes two lumps of snobbery with its morning coffee.
This year the Capricorn full moon and its companion Sun in Cancer is smack in the middle of last week’s first square between Uranus & Pluto on June 24th. The tension is high as we all feel a desire to break out and move in a new direction (Uranus) but at the same time there are psychological stumbling blocks (Pluto) that hold us back and keep us small. On the Full Moon, the Cancer Sun brings out our feelings and emotions while the Moon sitting next to Pluto in Capricorn is trying to have a practical handle on those feelings. And Uranus is squaring both of them! A lot of our feelings will be focused on those stumbling blocks that are keeping us from the changes we want to make. We want something new, we want a change but we feel trapped. Ah, there is that word again, ‘feel’. And perhaps we are trapped. But with Uranus and Pluto in the mix there are guilty feelings that some of the traps may be by our own hands. In the dark of the night what little message do we tell ourselves that keeps us small? What pattern did we grow up with that engrained hurdles to keep us from good? Or perhaps we did grow up small but we used our ego to break free and moved upwards but still at our core there is a belief that we have to do stuff alone because no one is really there for us. That belief in particular is SO Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn!
We will also feel strongly about our families and our careers. Both will be pulling on us. When we hang out with family and indulge we are concerned we are neglecting career and business and when we hang out in matters of work we feel we are neglecting family. Find the balance point on that teeter totter. And if you don’t have it-- why not? What changes do you need to make to flesh out a solution?
Take the three days of between Full Moon and Disseminating Moon on July 7 to ferret out those stumbling blocks that are holding you back you back from changes of good. As much as you may think it will involve a bunch of tears, remember Capricorn is pretty cold so you may be surprised how you can rationally approach those hurdles. The results may not happen overnight but given we are still in a Gemini lunar cycle we can program our brain and intellect with the solutions that could have long term results.
You can do it!
