I hope that you're all enjoying your summer and are thriving! I wanted to take a moment to give you a little bit of information on the Capricorn Full Moon happening on the 19th.
So as it is the Capricorn Full Moon, this means that the Sun is in the sign of Cancer (the watery sign of emotions, family, the home, nourishment and the occasional moments of drama). It's not uncommon at this time to find yourself over-involved with your emotions or with situations dealing with others. And with so many details that add to the drama, things can be confusing at this time.
So cue in the Capricorn Full Moon - Capricorn is the Mountain goat who through discipline climbs his way to the top of the mountain. In solitude, with only his thoughts as his ally or enemy, he ascends. And in the midst of drama and details and way too much talking, doesn't a little simplicity and solitude sound wonderful?
The Full Moon is deriving her energy from Saturn this month (ruler of Capricorn) and at the peak of the Full Moon (July 19th, 6:57pm eastern time) Saturn is retrograde, located in the sign of Sagittarius and in the 12th house (from the perspective of Toronto). The 12th house is the house of the subconscious or undoing and when Saturn resides here, he demands a period of introspection. Being received by Sagittarius, he asks that you view your life from a higher perspective rather than sit around moping.
As Saturn is square to Neptune, you may have a few harsh truths to confront regarding your own role in your relationships and the drama that you're experiencing. It's no time to play victim or pretend you're above whatever behaviours are bothering you. Luckily, Saturn is trine to Mercury and Venus and so if you're able to acknowledge your own part in your troubles, then your ability to communicate, resolve issues and restore balance to your relationships will be much stronger.
On another note, this square between Saturn and Neptune may also have you feeling like you've lost your bearings in life and don't know which direction to head into. You may feel like you're walking through fog and can't make out what is important in your life and where to head to next. In extreme cases, there may be a feeling of not knowing your purpose, who you are or why you are here and a lack of desire to pursue what may feel like a hopeless cause.
No matter the experience, this Capricorn Full Moon is calling for a simpler view of things and that can only come with a higher perspective. So whether you need perspective on relationships, your life purpose or the path ahead of you, I encourage you to join me this Friday for a Full Moon ceremony in the Wiccan tradition. Working with this theme of higher perspective, we will create the magick to have simplicity and insight together! See the event details below.
For those of you not in Toronto, I encourage you to take some time for introspection and look at things from a higher perspective. Here are a few questions to help guide you:
What are the 4 most important areas of your life?
Write down a goal for each area of importance?
What are you allowing to block you in each area?
What are actions can you immediately take following the end of the full moon energies?
I hope that this insight and these questions serve you in simplifying what may appear to be a confusing mess. Raise yourself up and away from the drama and I know that you will succeed in getting the clarity you need!
