July’s Full Moon in the sign of Capricorn (9th July 12.08pm AWST) is closely aligned with Pluto ~ lord of the underworld ~ and the Sun near to Mars in Cancer, both in T-square to King of Excess Jupiter!
A Full Moon such as this, with intense energies jostling for attention and expression, there’s plenty of scare-mongering going on. So, while The World shakes in its boots over fears perpetuated by relentless media coverage of the North Korea Threat, we are wise to aim to remain cool calm collected and to consider that which we are personally responsible for ~ our own lives, relationships, families, homes ~ and act towards betterment here, rather than becoming despondent hopeless angry at the broader picture of The Way Things Are (or appear to be).
The light promises to shine upon our darker places, allowing us to see into our past (hopefully gleaning new insights/perspectives) and to illuminate just what it is we have been building (intentionally or inadvertently) as we go about our daily lives. This may not be wholly warm+fuzzy, but it can be helpful.
Mars’ movement through Cancer has been agitating for our attention to fall upon that which will truly bring a sense of security. There can be so many red herrings as we go through a process of elimination to discern where our home really is, and what it is that we really need in order to feel safe and secure. Money, a steady job, reliable mate, food, shelter, or travel, adventure, passion, stimulation, freedom…?
When we come to the cosmic truth of it, perhaps it goes beyond all of these, to a sense of place that is accessed via surrender ~ nestling within our own vulnerability. A place where, at first, we don’t feel safe but uneasy.
Mars can help us to stay with that feeling, to see what comes next
And what comes next might be clarity of purpose, to recognise what we really want and what is worth fighting for in our lives.
The combination of this Full Moon’s energies can easily manifest as anxiety or emergent frustration and resentment. It is so easy for these emotions to overtake our conscious mind and impose themselves upon others, our nearest and dearest especially, wreaking havoc upon our plans for a pleasant weekend.
Forewarned is forearmed… with awareness we might be able to restrain urges to attack blame scapegoat those around us, and access the deeper message, our deeper needs, and to accept responsibility for meeting these needs without excessive demands and expectations.
I hope you all have meaningful in~sight into the deeper themes that arise over the next few days. These gifts can shift our gaze, reorienting us on our heroic journey, we see how we might contribute to the broader picture, not limited to threats of force and media-fuelled fear campaigns, but committing to the co(s)mic order that prevails, despite appearances
the quest for truth goes on
