Full Moon is a culmination of what we started around the time of the New Moon. With the Full Moon energy embracing qualities of the Goat, we are pushed even harder to finish what we started at the beginning of the lunar cycle.
This Full Moon will ask us to acknowledge what we have obtained, what has yet to be achieved and what adjustments need to be made moving forward.
Capricorn Full Moon is about success, not taking “no” for an answer and tackling obstacles that may lie in the way.
During this time, the Moon in Capricorn faces the Sun in Cancer- both of these signs associate with security, but seek it in different ways. Capricorn is focused on accomplishment of external goals and Cancer wants to search for comfort and safety within the confines of feeling.
This Full Moon will ask us to find the balance that exists within the two sides of security.
The Summer Solstice is the the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and considered the first day of Summer. It marks the day when the Sun is at its highest point in the sky and is truly a celebration of not only the Sun but the Light. During the Summer Solstice we are encouraged to reflect upon relationships with others and within the self. What are your long term goals? What does your heart yearn for? This is the time to cultivate your seeds, nurturing all that you are now planting with an open heart. Remember that with the Solstice comes a turning of the Wheel and we are now slowly making our way towards the the darkness- each day growing closer to our deepest selves- Embrace change and walk in faith.
During the Summer Solstice, we welcome the onset of Cancer Season. Cancer is a deep, emotional, nurturing sign, but during this transit- things can get overly emotional or moody. Cancer is an intaking sign and is connected to the 4th House of Home and Family. Ties to the past, our loved ones and our desire to nurture others will come into play. This is a time of heightened emotional sensitivity- when we can rebalance our heart and head after the expanding mental capacity of Gemini. Cancer will ask us to dive into our vulnerabilities and look to where the past may be keeping us stuck in a loop. Nurturing activities like gardening or cooking are great ways to deepen the connection with Mother energy.
On this same day- Jupiter turns Retrograde. The energy of Jupiter Retrograde lasts typically about four months. Jupiter is he planet of expansion, luck and joy. It also represents abundance, travel and philosophy. With Jupiter in retrograde, we are asked to dive deeply into philosophical and spiritual introspection. Jupiter travels through two signs during this retrograde, Pisces and Aquarius. Pisces energy could leave us feeling dazed and confused- perhaps overall optimistic about situations that are not what they seem. Once Jupiter transits back into Aquarius, additional details will bring clarity; however this clarity may not be what we hoped for- it is important to remember to ask what the lesson is- instead of getting stuck in emotional entanglements.
With Mercury squaring Neptune- a transit that can lead to distorted thinking and confused communications coupled with Mars opposite Pluto- this is not a time to engage and whenever possible, regroup instead of heading into battle.
You may not see the full picture. If you feel threatened, try to step back and see the bigger picture- you may be not seeing clearly.
If war is unavoidable- maintain your high moral ground and enlist the help of likeminded people.
Clarity will return once these transits complete- keep strong boundaries and try to ride out the wave.
Full Moon in Libra asks us to reevaluate relationship dynamics and how some ties bind us to the past in ways that may be keeping parts of us stuck in the energy of that dynamic trauma.
These relationship dynamics can engage entire families. Each person caught in the net of these traumas are tied into the knot of energy. Repeating generational patterns ensures that not only will we be tied into this trauma knot but out descendants may be as well.
To release the ties, to unravel the knot, we must first accept that part of our energy is tied up in it. Past the shame and guilt lies clarity. It is difficult to separate the vibration of this knot (and the further back in the ancestral line it goes- the stronger the vibration will resonate) from the present self, however once you are able to gain space from it, truth about how it was formed will begin to come to light. As light shines upon the knot we begin to understand each turn and tighten of the thread, we begin to see the choices, the pain, the situations and misunderstandings that created it.
Forgiving the self is powerful, and through this forgiveness lies a path to greater understanding, compassion and finally healing. As you heal, you heal the family line. As you untie the knots you free the energy- allowing it to go back home to the soul in which it belongs.
Our imagination is the doorway to the third eye- to clear sight. The 3rd eye allows us to see beyond humanness- to call upon the Great Creator and see/hear/feel the response that comes back to us. Mindfulness is the key to the door. Practicing being here- without judgment, without fear… see the door, open it and allow what comes through space to unfold.
Intuitive hypnotherapy, Reiki & a Mindfulness self care routine can assist you in peeling back the layers of the past… your journey is yours alone…
Use the power of this Full Moon to illuminate your path to greater acceptance and forgiveness. Commit to the ongoing healing of your deepest self; free the slivers of soul trapped in your ancestral knots and traumas.
A new day is dawning, the light awakens within us.
Mercury is a busy planet this month with a culminating square to the North & South Nodes.
A square to the Nodes triggers a spot of tension that gives you a choice- to stay with the South Node (what needs to be completed) or move onto the North Node (what needs to be developed further).
The North Node is currently in Gemini, a sign ruled by Mercury, and reinforces decisions made during the earlier square involving Venus.
It may be time to speak your truth and consummate the changes that you realized were necessary pertaining to the concept of self-vs-whole. It may be time to step into your power and ready yourself to take the next steps.
Trust your path.
