Today we have a Full Moon, where the Cancer Sun opposes this month’s Capricorn Moon. This opposition asks us to look at the balance between our inner world + home life (Cancer) versus our public life + responsibilities (Capricorn). The energy of this cycle helps us uncover + understand our intimate feelings + how they externalize + either give or take away our power.
The Cancer Sun is focused on family, home, nourishment + ancestral patterns…
while the Capricorn Moon asks us to consider our sense of duty + responsibility out in the world. Painful family issues or patterns may come to the surface + Capricorn inspires us to challenge our deep-set inner wiring. This Full Moon asks us to empower ourselves + take greater responsibility over our emotional world + tendencies. Cancer represents the origin + Capricorn represents the goal. We need both energies + this Full Moon invites us to discover a harmonious balance between the two.
This Moon illuminates a conflict between roots + direction. Something has been building inside of us + now is the time when the cosmos demand we let it out. Over the next two weeks, we will discover what this means for each of us. In the same way the Moon lights the night sky, a symbolic “illumination” occurs in our own lives. These revelations are emotional + there is a sense of emotions bursting forth into our consciousness. We need to let it out + express ourselves.
Another powerful layer to this Moon comes from her alignment with Pluto – the planet of death + rebirth. This energy may feel sharp, change is painful, but it ultimately helps us release that which we no longer need. The beauty of “let go + let God” Pluto is that you already know what or who needs to be released; and, the challenge is that now is the time to do what you already know you need to do (but have probably been putting off). The Cardinal (means action oriented) signs of Cancer, Capricorn, Libra + Aries are particularly strong right now. This helps you kick into high gear.
This FULL MOON:
Theme: Look deeply into yourself – there’s much more than meets the eye – and ask: am I living bravely + authentically for me or am I living for how I think I’m supposed to be?
How: Strengthen personal boundaries + honor your most intimate feelings. Keep these discoveries in mind while navigating the delicate shores of your relationships to people + work.
Treat yourself: An earthy, romantic candle to celebrate quiet moments alone as you delve deep into yourself. A thought provoking book to ignite your journey of self discovery. A journal to write down feelings + insights.
