This Sunday July 9th there is a Full Moon in Capricorn (17 deg), and you’re likely already feeling it!
Full and New Moons are influencing us whether we realize it or not, The tide goes in and out with the moon’s new and full moon phases, and likewise our emotions are triggered by planetary movements. Knowing about what the planets are doing helps make sense of behavior and feelings.
What message does this Full Moon bring to us? There’s quite the feeling of electricity in the air, which can leave you feeling buzzed. This Full Moon is a degree away from Pluto in Capricorn. The Sun and Mars are opposing them in Cancer. Mars isn’t extremely close, but in this case we’re definitely feeling Mars energy, Pluto energy, and Saturn energy.
Full Moons amplify emotions and bring things to a head. Astrological events don’t create issues that aren’t already within you or around you somewhere. They bring things to the surface or to your attention so that they can be addressed, ideally in a healthy, positive way (that’s where knowing these triggers are happening becomes useful!). It presents a push to explore opportunities or get out of your comfort zone and express your needs.
The Full Moon may bring up questions like… Is there anything I’m not expressing? Are my needs or desires being fulfilled? Is there something in my life needing healing, closure, transformation or release?
This Full Moon is in practical, ambitious Capricorn, squaring Jupiter in Libra. Jupiter is all about expansion and abundance, and a square is a challenge and that can make things feel a bit tense. There may be some dreams you are really wanting to move into right now, The Full Moon brings your emotions to a climactic moment, so you could feel like you are about to explode, Don’t give up! This is a time to step away, take some deep breaths, do some yoga, go to a workout class, get out in nature, have a swim in the ocean, bake some cookies, anything to clear your head which is being filled by a climax with intensity.
The Full Moon is pretty much right on Pluto. Pluto is all about deep, deep transformation. He’s about diving in to our shadow side and seeing what we’d usually rather avoid or confronting what we have a hard time owning about ourselves (both the good qualities and the not so good). Pluto asks us to look at how Power and Control are manifesting in our lives. Where is it appropriate to let go, surrender and trust your Soul to direct the show in ways you may not currently understand? Pluto helps us get clear on these lines, although we usually go through quite a bit of push/pull/resistance before we get to the clear part! Keep up and keep going!
Pluto will ruthlessly destruct anything we have outgrown, and whatever no longer serves us. Pluto gets you onto your highest evolutionary path, and he tends not to do it in a gentle way. With this Full Moon right on Pluto, more people than usual will feel his energy and so be aware of the fact that this weekend can trigger a short yet intense dark night of the soul for some. Nurture yourself, take care of yourself and if you can, extend some nurturing to anyone in your circle who is going through a hard time. It is going to be a big Full Moon weekend for sure!
