Capricorn full moon – thursday 2nd July is the first of two full moons this month, illuminating the darkness so we can face the light. This auspicious moon month will help us to face what is hidden so that we can accept the reality of a situation, both personally and in the wider world, in order to find the solutions.
This earthy Capricorn full moon dissolves the veil of ignorance with its down-to-earth and pragmatic energy. It can help us accept reality without the emotional pain and anxiety, and with our emotions under control we can take practical action and make changes.
This moon also helps us to be more structured and organised. This is a good moon to get your paperwork/filing/accounts in order, pay invoices and prepare now for the harvest in September.
Over this moon we like to feel we are achieving something and moving forward, so keep your awareness open to all the success that comes your way this month. Very often we only count ‘successful’ with big, meaningful experiences, but successes come in all shapes and sizes. When we miss the daily successes we are missing the magic in the ‘ordinariness.’
The best way of recognising all the synchronisities and magical moments that happen every day is to write a gratitude diary. At the end of the day, recording all you have to be grateful for in a diary. This not only reminds us of all the wonderful things that are happening around us all the time, it also opens the channels of energy for more of it to come to you.
This summer is all about taking personal responsibility for your needs and desires. Consciously make some personal time to do something that honours your creativity; writing, poetry, music, art, sculpture, etc If we don’t make time for ourselves we are not serving ourselves fully, and this can lead to burn out!
Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet relating to limitations and restrictions. Saturn is often given a bad rap but actually this planet gives us an opportunity to go beyond our fears, redefine our boundaries and set clear goals. It helps us to structure and define what needs to be done on the physical level to enable us to create our visions.
The downside of this moon is being too hard on ourselves, feeling negative, and ‘beating’ ourselves up for things that happen, even when they are beyond our control. Rather than get depressed about the state of the world, your life, or the life of others, take action and become part of the solution.
Sitting around moaning about how awful everything is, keeps us depressed and in the victim mentality. We are super blessed here in the West and the more we can recognise all the amazing opportunities and freedoms we have here, we realise how powerful we really are.
Symbolised by the mountain goat, Capricorn moon helps us to stay focused on our destination, while reminding us to enjoy the journey. We have been learning how to surrender to the flow, and this moon enables us to find our footing and start having fun.
It reminds us to re-examine our commitment to our visions and helps us find the discipline and self-control that may have weakened over the last few months by strengthening our tenacity. It also gives us the courage to take risks that we may not normally have the guts to do. And remember to be open to the magic this month.
I will end this Lunascope with the wise words Goethe:
“Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has Genius, Power and Magic in it.”
