Reaching fullness in the sign of Capricorn, the Moon urges us to focus on the physical manifestations of life. How do the structures, form and organization of our life support our being practical and productive? Capricorn, cardinal and earthy, wants to initiate a new objective. It’s ambitious and uses its focus to strive and accomplish. Its symbol is the mountain goat with a dolphin tail climbing from the depths of the sea to the top of the mountain one step at a time – deliberate, methodical and dependable. Capricorn seeks perfection on the material plane and recognition in the social spheres. Representing the Father principle as Cancer, its opposite, represents the Mother principle, Capricorn instinctively acts to embody integrity – keep their word, show up, do what needs to be done, finish – and conform to and maintain the cultural patterns for the good of the community. Capricorn is Authority, both outer and inner, where we stand up for the principles necessary for the good of all. They love to accumulate resources usually through their own effort and hard work and conservative nature and often success is delayed until later in life. The Cancer/Capricorn continuum as personified by the Full Moon with Sun in Cancer and Full Moon in Capricorn are both concerned with security. Cancer seeks inner, emotional security and Capricorn wants tangible, material outer security. Every Full Moon is a chance to realize the resolution/paradox of duality.
As summer intensifies, we are being reminded of great beauty and abundance all around. The healing energies of the sun, the rains and the green plants surround us, giving great sami (chi) to heal our minds, bodies and spirits.
We have just emerged from a series of three eclipses, and intense configurations in the heavens that are assuring our evolution and growth. The frequencies are changing in our bodies and environments, causing massive shift. How have you been navigating this time of death and rebirth? Have you found yourself cleaning your closets, your bodies, your homes, as well as your relationships? Most likely one of these areas has surfaced with a need to let go, shift and rebirth.

We’re rounding the curve on our three-eclipse package that started on June 1st. This looks to be the most outwardly powerful of the three eclipses* as the Sun and the Moon in Cancer join forces to form the fourth corner of a Cardinal Grand Cross that includes three major outer planets, Saturn (our disciplined teacher), Uranus (our inspired awakener), and Pluto (our transforming healer). Outer planets invite in world drama so we can see our psyches played out on a larger stage. Watch what surfaces in the eclipse period in your life and in the news at the family, community and global level. If you look at one small part, you can see within it the whole.
