Full Moon Glory! Capricorn Mastery

Glory to the Full Moon! Capricorn Mastery

 Everything in the universe seems to move in cycles. Yin/Yang,inhalation/exhalation,  contraction/expansion. In the midst of the madness of the world,   studying history shows us there are continuous cycles to cultures made up of people, places and things. Everything has a beginning, middle, and end, therefore the cycles continue indefinitely. Expansionary times. Contraction periods. It was a good time.  It’s a bad moment. In the interim.   The best of times,  the worst of times.

“And we go round and round and round in the circle game!”

Notice the connections between  all the planets –  the dance/interplay of the energies of the galaxy we live in.  Everything is cyclical, and everything is connected, as Astrology reminds me.

The Full Moon in Capricorn occurred today around noon, Mountain Time – 2pm Eastern, 7pm Uk time. It is glowing brightly in the summer sky tonight. I went outside to capture this picture. By the way, happy Summer Solstice. Happy Full Moon, as well.

Capricorn is the older sign, and it is associated with duty, responsibility, and authority. Capricorns have a strong desire to succeed; they want to prove their worth in the world.  Capricorn’s highest expression is self-mastery.  It asks us to grow up,  take responsibility and claim personal authority over our life.

Pluto (the destroyer/transformer) has been moving through the sign of  Capricorn for the past 10 years, shaking up governments, systems and institutions. It may seem like they are still in control, yet in truth it’s really the last gasp of the dying patriarchy. What comes next, as Pluto moves into Aquarius in four years, will be interesting,  to say the least, as it coincides with us entering  the age of Aquarius.  The great transformer is Pluto.

Part of the deconstruction taking place is about taking back  personal authority that we may have given away to others, be they parents, priests or government leaders. The Aquarian age is about working together as a collective to  bring more equity and equality to the world

We’re not quite there yet ~ this is still the dismantling phase!

This card may be interpreted in a variety of ways; I particularly appreciate how the tower that has collapsed has been transformed into a bridge that can be used to cross over to the other side of the abyss in this rendition. There is always hope, according to Jupiter! Pluto will continue to shake us up  to wake us up, yet for every ending,  there will always be a new beginning.

All of this is currently taking place in the background. This magnificent Moon is in the foreground!

A Capricorn Moon is about structure and discipline. It can assist us in regaining control following the unusual topsy-turvy energy of the Mercury retrograde, which is about to finish. As the Moon cycle reaches it peak,  we’ve been through two eclipses and a Mercury retrograde. Eclipses are portals into a new reality… and I mentioned in my last post that these eclipses have to do with facts, ideas, how we think, what we believe. They focused on letting go of old belief systems; by turning things upside down  we get to see the world with new eyes.

Let this Full Moon highlight and bring to fruition the teachings that have arisen since the lunar eclipses of May 26th (Sagittarius) and June 10th (Gemini). Those lessons will now be shaping into a peak moment of awareness and integration.

Capricorn challenges us to put what we feel in our emotions and intellect into words. It’s time to put your words into action! With the focus on how we talk, think, and  believe (North Node in Gemini) , we are being pushed to release old mental constructs that keep us tied to the past. There’s a tug of war going on right now between the past (Saturn) and the future (Uranus), and it’s affecting us all in different ways.  Finding a new way forward means letting go of our preconceptions so we can continue (or start)  to see clearly even while things may be revealed that challenge our world view. So many factors(Mercury retrograde and Neptune’s shenanigans )  have made it hard to distinguish fact from fiction. I think we are  getting pretty burned out on endless arguments around what is really going on. From this time forward,  there may be new  information coming to light that has  been previously hidden, and which will change the way we see things. This can be perplexing and confusing. As the old ways fade away, it’s natural to cling to what’s familiar. Time to…

The Capricorn Moon can be a bit stodgy and conservative, preferring the good ol’ fashioned way of doing things, like a  John Wayne movie where men are men!  Capricorn, at its best, is a strong foundation that may help us ground and integrate all of the emotion that has been swirling around in the lead-up to this Full Moon, whose actual goal is to assist us in stepping into our personal power.

We each get to own our own part in our own story while the world story evolves and changes. It turns out it each of us has a say in how that plays out.  And while Capricorns do tend to keep their emotional cards close to their chest, the Full Moon will bring up strong inner tides as it shines a light on our own deep emotions. 
You are the  Master of your own ship; what you do with it  is your own unfolding story!
She’s going strong!
“One ship drives east and another drive’s west,
with the self same winds that blow,
It’s the set of the sails and not the gails that tell us the way to go.
Like the winds of the sea and the ways of fate,
as we voyage alone through life,
It’s the set of a soul that decides its goal
and not the calm or strife”
