Capricorn Full Moon – Tuesday 19th July brings renewed faith and hope to projects, relationships, health issues or creative endeavours that have been challenging or tough going.
Whereas, the new moon in Cancer brought our focus back to our family and home life, this full moon in the sign of Capricorn brings the focus back to our path, our goals, and can inspire us to feel more confident if things have been rocky.
Beware of your inner critic that may be working overtime and don’t be too hard on yourself. This moon is for celebrating your achievements right now. Recognise and be grateful for how far you have come, even if the original goal still seems far away. The journey is ongoing and the more you honour and appreciate the steps you have taken towards your vision, the more fun you can have on the journey!
Here are my 7 top tips too successfully surfing this Capricorn Full moon wave!
Accept your Limitations
Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet relating to limitations and restrictions, so if you are feeling a bit frustrated with where you are, or you are feeling more stuck than usual, blame it on the moon. However, this planet also helps us to redefine our boundaries and set clear goals for the coming months. It helps us to structure and define what needs to be done on a practical level to enable us to manifest our visions. So don’t fall into despair if you feel you are going one step forwards and two step backs…just accept your limitations and those that you cannot control, and keep on keeping on!
Don’t Give Up
Symbolised by the mountain goat, the Capricorn moon reminds us to hold on tight, especially if things are looking precarious right now! The best thing to do is to acknowledge where you are without judgement. This moon be firm with yourself to stop the ‘must’erbating, ‘should’ ing and ‘anal’ysing as this can just exacerbate any negative feelings that may be surfacing.
On the flip side, if things are going well, this moon will illuminate and increase the positive flow that you are in, and connect you to the right people and places to support your projects and dreams. When we allow ourselves to feel how we are feeling, we can let go of needing things to be different, which enables us to enjoy life as it is, and not as we would like it to be.
Keep it Real
Capricorn helps us to keep it real, so if you have been burying your head in the sand for a while pretending everything is ok, this moon you will no longer be able to fool yourself. This is because its time to see beyond the illusion of what we ‘THINK’ life is about and start seeing the ‘REALITY’ from a HEART-BASED perceptive. The moment we start seeing the world from this place, we will no longer be able to deny any of the pain or discomfort we are feeling for ourselves and the planet. Once we know without doubt that things are not in alignment with who we are, we can find the courage to change it.
This is the moon to stay focused on the destination, and do what needs to be done moment to moment, even if the path seems unclear or you are unsure of where to put your next step. Follow your intuition and do what feels right, rather than what your rational mind is telling you. We will see a lot of changes over the coming months and the more we remain focused, disciplined and motivated to get on with what we can do, the more empowered we will feel.
If you are feeling emotional, focus on what is good! Human beings are naturally defaulted to negative so we are always going to see that perspective first. But we are living in a duality reality and it is a universal lore of Nature that there is a blessing in every burden, and a burden in every blessings. So there cannot be dark without light, nor pain without pleasure, so focus on what is pleasurable, fun and exciting. When we focus on the positive we automatically generate more of that good! Try it and see!
From Me to We
Capricorn reminds us to work as a team with our loved ones and colleagues, finding solutions together that work for everyone so we can build firmer foundations. However, we are also more aware of people who may be taking advantage of us, mentally, financially or emotionally. The key is to be honest with yourself about the situation and acknowledge if there needs to be more team effort. Get proactive over this moon and call a meeting so you can air your thoughts and concerns. Getting the clarity will help alleviate any fears, stress and worry.
We must also remember to lighten up under a Capricorn moon so we don´t get too serious or bogged down by the fear of the unknown. Find time to laugh and play. Don´t take things so seriously or ´sweat the small stuff!´ Surround yourself with positive people this moon and those who are choosing to see the magic of life so you don’t get caught in a web of negativity and depression.
I will end this Lunascope with the wise words from Leo Tolstoy:
“Freethinkers are those who are willing to use their minds without prejudice and without fearing to understand things that clash with their own customs, privileges, or beliefs. This state of mind is not common, but it is essential for right thinking…”
