Full Moon in Capricorn Friday July 15

Capricorn and Cancer are the archetypal Father and Mother. At this Full Moon they sit opposite each other … with  Capricorn given the spotlight. Though he may have greater influence under this Moon,  its home sign (literally)  of Cancer still has a lot of pull.

The Cancer mother represents the home, the root, our need to nurture and be nurtured. It brings us memories of the past and emphasizes our need to feel.

The Capricorn father leads us out into the material world with logic and reason…teaches us to take responsibility and asks us to fulfill our tasks and duties. He wants us to build solidity and structure….no shirking  when he is around.

The polarity of this Full Moon thus represents the yin yang  balancing our inner and outer life.  The Capricorn emphasis means duties and responsibilities may override personal needs.

It has been an emotionally intense month with all kinds of ups and downs with the Sun, Moon and Venus in Cancer one by one setting off the Cardinal Grand Cross. The recent eclipses  have brought some big drama and abrupt endings, so this may be a time of major regrouping after sudden change.

Full Moons magnify everything…and often manifest in relationship issues… self and other, and  Mercury and Mars working well together right now will be encouraging us to speak up for ourselves.

Yet Saturn’s tense square to Venus (love) urges caution; take your time to articulate your needs. Compromises may become necessary as we are faced with what we need versus what we want.

 And Capricorn is where sometimes we have to put feelings aside cause there is stuff that has to be done.  Time to man up! If you are resisting getting on with it, look to the past for hints of what is now manifesting. Just remember under Capricorn the focus is on forward movement.

Saturn in Libra has been slowly steadily helping us build clear boundaries and make better, clearer choices based on our true needs.  The Cancer Sun wants us to remember to feel our way through and not let cold logic take total control.

The tension between these two opposites will illuminate (literally) our need for balance between logic and feeling. 
Jupiter trine Pluto and Venus trine Neptune bring the potential for healing, inspiration and deep transformation.

And then once the Moon slips into Aquarius over the weekend we can  step back and detach from it all.  

Breath out. Whew!

"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
 there is a field.
 I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,

the world is too full to talk about.

Ideas, language, even the phrase each other
doesn’t make any sense."
