Capricorn Full Moon ~ July 1, 2015 @ 7:22 pm PDT
The beautiful thing about Capricorn, our full moon leader opening the month of July, is that, once firmly on her path, she’s pretty much unshakable, no matter what obstacles come her way.
If you ever actually watch a real mountain goat, one of Cap’s symbols, you’ll be rather amazed. They seem to have a secret connection to gravity that allows them access to the craziest up and down hill traversing I have ever seen.
When the moon is new in this Saturn ruled cardinal earth energy, it is typically late December or early January, coinciding with our agreed upon calendar new year. At that point, I see her as standing at the base of the year ahead, plotting her course and building her strength.
This time it’s different. Her full moon cameo this week marks the half way point of the current annual cycle.
So, where are you on the climb of 2015? Have you reached your vista? Are you at the summit? Or are you still ascending? Maybe you got lost or turned around? Maybe you didn’t choose the most useful path at first and you had to try again. Maybe you never started at all.
This full moon is an opportunity to stop and look around. Are you where you want to be?
Yes? Great! No? Great!
Capricorn is always up for a challenge and Saturn likes nothing more than to sternly but firmly and effectively plant our feet in the right place.
Whether you are celebrating the heights, are stuck on the hillside, or are starting from scratch, take time to ground and moon gaze. Be humble with Capricorn but be honest. Offer gratitude for your steps taken with confidence and for the ones that are still shaky.
Guidance can be requested but pay attention, she doesn’t sugar coat, nor will she repeat herself.
Capricorn has a mission in the physical world and she always gets it right, even if it takes time or creates blisters on her tired feet. She is not afraid of hard work and will do what is needed. Can you say the same?
Don’t be afraid if you don’t think you have made it far enough, or if you’re worried you can’t get much further. The sun is already in nurturing mother Cancer, so help is available. Tune in to both the wisdom of your body and your emotions on this full moon. Be sure they’re in alignment with your current trail and you can trust support will come wherever it is needed.
Whether you realize it or not, much has happened in the first half of this year and more is coming. We get to choose our level of participation, so if you are really passionate about co-creating a better world, I do suggest you get focused and stay on track. The descent often moves much faster and can be even more treacherous to unsuspecting hikers.
Keep it steady, wherever you are, ask for help when you need it and stay true to your heart. Happy full moon!
