2014 Capricorn Full Moon

July 12, 2014
4:24 AM PDT / 7:24 AM EDT / 11:24 AM GMT
20 Capricorn 3 / 20 Cancer 3

When you’re in the thick of action, it’s easy to miss the big picture. That’s coming into focus under the light of this month’s Capricorn Full Moon. It’s providing a platform for viewing the destabilizing and reshaping of recent months and years. Passive observation is not the point of this platform, however. It’s designed to push — push you onto it, push you into seeing, push you into evaluating, and push you (and everyone else) into action.

This Full Moon begins the wrap-up of the tumult we’ll all been experiencing since the winter holidays. We’re starting to see the point of it and where it’s headed. This phase is calculating and unyielding, yet, in a grand sense, forgiving. Players are leaving; alliances are taking new form; potentials are blossoming or blowing up.  People are reaching monumental turning points: shifting shape; viewing themselves drastically differently; banishing annoyances, drains, behaviors and attitudes that have been nibbling away at their sanity, finances and energy.

We are revisiting the complex and divisive energies of April’s cardinal cross. This time, each of us is experiencing them on a profoundly personal level, with the Sun and the Moon now in the configuration.  You have outgrown much; hence the goodbyes and nevermores. You’ve grown into much as well.

For starters, aren’t you taking more and better care of yourself? Or, at minimum, thinking that you should?  Nourishment and nurturing have been themes for the past year, as Jupiter has made his way through Cancer and escalating thechange imperative of the ongoing Uranus/Pluto square. Now at the final degree of that sign (he moves into Leo on Wednesday), he is whipping those themes of nourishment and nurturing up to maximum force.

Consider it a parting gift. Let them lock in at a cellular level and make taking care of yourself your new starting point.  This will happen to some extent whether you embrace it consciously or not. Make the effort. Treating yourself well attracts people and situations that will do the same, and ushers out ones that won’t, can’t or don’t.

Be kind to your inner child just now, too. With what you’ve come through, don’t you deserve a treat? Jupiter encourages self-indulgence. Ice cream or equivalent is definitely in order. That’s not a flip suggestion. It’s an exercise in allowing yourself to have. If that hasn’t come naturally to you before, there’s no time like the present for a work out.

You’ve changed in other profound ways. You are more focused and self-aware. You know more clearly what you want, what you value and who you are. All of that factors into your experiences, emotions, reactions and decisions under this Full Moon.

There’s a definite edge, too. It’s akin to street smarts, or being worldly wise. As much as some relationships and dreams are flourishing, as much as magic and miracles are in fact materializing down here on the earth plane (as they most definitely are for many people), there’s a simultaneous epidemic of discernment, discrimination and awareness in investing time, energy, resources and trust. Long-term security, consequences and viability are part of every analysis. If X feels like it has staying power (and X is something you want), you’ll let it in. If it doesn’t, you’ll drop it, perhaps without explanation or saying goodbye.  Brusk and businesslike, that’s the mode. Second chances are few, at this point, except maybe ones you give to yourself.

See if you don’t find yourself look at situation after situation with stark and sudden clarity:  I like this. I don’t like that. This feels safe (or nourishing) (or supportive). I’m done with that. I didn’t see that coming. And then acting, or responding to others, with that clarity.

Yet it’s not grim. In fact, a lot of it will be fun, life-enhancing and encouraging. Venus and Mars, rulers of our desire and drive, are cooperating beautifully. Knowing what you want and going for what you want come easily, to the point of effortlessness.

The harmony between the cosmic lovers greases social connections of all kinds. This is promising for reaching out, making overtures and following through. Conversations could flow organically on the often dangerous topics of “What is going on between us?” and “Where is this going?” — questions that are as important in business/financial dealings as in romance.

The conversations and the evolving connections both have a mature, responsible and softly therapeutic quality.  No one’s inclined to trifle with his or her own heart or money.  Long-term potential is part of the appeal as well as the nature of situations that blossom now.  A round-robin of energy is running that has the power to soften the stark, mountainous terrain of the Capricorn Full Moon. The current is flowing from the Sun in home-and-family-oriented Cancer to Saturn in Scorpio (and his preference for structure and commitment) to Chiron in Pisces and the potential for transcending longstanding emotional wounds. What unfolds for you now — what you choose to unfold now — can be stable, dependable, nurturing and beyond what your perceived wounds have allowed you to let in previously.

Watch for the brake pedal to come off when Saturn goes direct next week, on July 20. The first half of the year will be soon be distant history. A magical phase of life is beginning.

2014 Cancer New Moon

June 27, 2014
1:08 AM PDT / 4:08 AM EDT / 8:08 AM GMT
5 Cancer 37

The Cancer New Moon signals a sea change in our approach to relating. It douses emotional sustenance and expression with magic, romance, compassion, forgiveness and maybe just a little Pollyanna vision. And while we’re under its spell, a pair of cosmic hands is at our backs pushing us into action.  No more dawdling or feeling stuck or circling an issue or waiting for someone else to move. It’s time.

This event has the total immersion quality of a baptism, courtesy of a lovely flow between the New Moon and Neptune, bringer of transcendence. Their link is steeping us in experience of each other and of our interconnectedness, which will translate for many of us into heightened awareness of both.  This includes more than family and tribe, which are Cancer’s usual concern. The sensation of being related is now bleeding across boundaries of blood, country or other identifying factors.

The waters carry the potential for healing longstanding emotional wounds, particularly involving worthiness, taking on other people’s pain, or being the fall guy, sacrificial lamb or victim. They also challenge us to take responsibility  for nature and effect of the behavior, emotions and energy that we are discharging into the waters. That potential and challenge are on tap for the next month, with Saturn, lord of order and consequences, linking easily to the wounded, therapeutic properties of Chiron.

Aware or not, everyone’s sensitivity is running high. Hearts are tender; feelings are at the surface and spilling out.  It will be easy to soak up what other people are going through. It will also be easy to confuse or delude yourself. The challenge will be to distinguish what is yours, what is someone else’s and what is wishful thinking.

Fortunately, the skies have help with the sorting. Your heart is operating with a new and improved appreciation of your own needs, desires and values, shown by the growth aspect between love goddess Venus and the New Moon. As a result, you have an enhanced and instinctive ability to read the tides.

Plus you’ve got those cosmic hands at your back. They come from an action-demanding link between Venus and Neptune, rulers of worldly love and its highest, most spiritual counterpart.  Those unseen hands are likely to knock you out of fantasy and illusion –  misconceptions about your own heart, or worthiness, or entitlement to have a supportive relationship, perhaps, or your continuing to look for support and nourishment from people who are not going to deliver. (Yes, it’s okay to draw a line of demarcation between yourself and relatives who mistreat you. In fact, it may be one of the most loving and nurturing acts you can take for yourself.)

Those hands are also likely to push you right into your heart’s desire…which could well have arms, and open ones at that. Markers for significant partnership activity are all over the configuration of this New Moon.  No sweet summer romances this year; everything is mature and serious. Much has staying power, too, because the long-term will be on many mind, even as eyes fill with stars.

Gears that shift now involve or bring up issues of commitment, marriageability and building a home together. This will happen even in relationships that are just getting off the ground, or morphing from acquaintance, friendship or conditions that have confused or mystified you.

We re in for an epidemic of pairing up and settling down, but that will not mean settling. At all.  Unless, of course, that’s what you’ve decided is your only option, in which case this New Moon offers the means to knock that thinking out, right now. Pay attention to your words (the love goddess is in Gemini, after all, the verbal playground of the zodiac), because they are guiding the movement.  The stakes are real, and so are the prospects of your vision coming into being. What do you want in a relationship? What are you saying and thinking that you want? Is there a disconnect? Reframe your words so they match what you want. What illusions might be in the way of that? Ask to drop them, even if you can’t fathom what they are.

It’s time (that phrase again) to install, act on and live by the new approach to relating that you have been developing since June 2012  Between now and the middle of July, Venus and Mars will be hitting degrees that were encoded with time delays then.  As prelude to that journey, Mars is currently finishing up relationship renegotiation and remodeling he began in late December. His final opposition to Uranus, agent of unpredictable change, is amping up motivation to get moving on our new relationship agenda. It may be stirring frustration and aggravation, too. When that happens, think of it as as rocket fuel for the weeks to come.

The new approach we’re implementing, and the new relationships we are forging, look very little like our old visions and experiences. Goodbye to the white picket fence, family unit with 2.3 children, and other nostalgic concepts that never really were. Equal partners walking shoulder to shoulder are moving into the norm.

So is an empowered, present, and integrated feminine. Her archetypes pervade this New Moon, herself in the sign of the great mother, and form a gauntlet for the journey on which Venus and Mars are embarking. Venus is standing in unity with Juno, the asteroid of marriage. They are operating as one, bringing the role of the partner, and respect for that union, into our system of values, demanding attention to unloving and illusory perceptions, and calling for — yea, verily forcing — a more sacred role.

Mars is on a collision course with Ceres, goddess of nourishment, and Vesta, keeper of the home fires. When he meets them next month, he’ll be directing energy and teamwork to their spheres of influence. Individual relationships will feel the impact and factor it into the new approach we’re implementing. Issues of home, feeding, farming and the role we accord to families will also spill into public awareness and debate, since Mars will also be activating the North Node, the path and destiny of the collective.

It will pay to contemplate this New Moon. Set your sights now. They affect your trajectory for the next month, which in turn affects the path you are building to the future. Not to mention the companions traveling with you. And the one right by your side.

2014 Sagittarius Full Moon

June 12-13, 2014

9:11 PM PDT / 12:11 AM EDT / 4:11 AM GMT

22 Sagittarius 6 / 22 Gemini 6

This month’s Sagittarius Full Moon is the stroke of a cosmic clock. It’s signaling that ways of thinking about the world and ourselves have hit the end of the line. There’s no snooze button, either. This chiming is loud, insistent and impossible to ignore. And it’s propeling situations, and each of us, into a state of fierce and forceful action.

You’d think we were still in eclipse season, as intense as the build-up to this Moon has already been. It certainly carries the resetting and activating impact of an eclipse, but it has a profound stabilizing and healing potential as well.

This Full Moon is spotlighting what goes in and out of our minds and mouths — and whipping it into extremes, logical and illogical. We are seeing cartoonishly large the impact that words and beliefs have on physical reality, each other and, most importantly, ourselves.  As the evidence and surrounding emotions come to a head, pressure is amplifying, escalating and accelerating to lock-and-load proportions.

The pressure is teeming with factors, issues and influences swirling in uneasy, motivating co-existence.  Limits, ramifications, commitments and hearing — or saying — “no” are rampant themes. With Venus, ruler of all we desire, tightly opposing ruler-maker Saturn, walls are coming down to permanently separate us from connections and wishes, while others lock into place, seriously, maturely and at a cost. In some instances, we’re in the driver’s seat, steering clear of wishes, people and situations that do not nurture us or feel healthy, and heading toward ones that enhance and support a newly honed appreciation of our own worth.

Battle cries are in the mix:  “This far and no farther.” “This has gone on long enough.” Or even simply, “Uncle!”  The air is filled with impatience, frustration and an unwillingness to wait any longer.  Not to mention the sense that something big is about to happen. Hair-trigger tempers abound; clear thinking, alas, is at a minimum. Remember that. Mercury, ruler of the Gemini Sun, is retrograde at the beginning of Cancer, which encourages taking statements personally that likely had nothing to do with you. Remember, that, too.

At the core of the intensity is a mechanism for monumental movement and change, which is poised to spring at any moment. The Full Moon locks into the cardinal grand cross that dominated April. As the Full Moon wanes, Mars, the planet of action, will hit a sequence of sensitive points and set off developments that have been rumbling since late December.  His journey will release the current pressure over the next few weeks. That’s not likely to happen in any controlled, measured fashion, but instead in a series of sporadic, dramatic bursts.

The first is underway. Mars is already triggering Pluto, the agent of unavoidable change. The two hothead influences will move into an exact clash on Saturday, but they are already close enough for us — and events — to feel it. They will birth enormous progress on matters that have been in the works. Do take note, though:  Mars + Pluto + retrograde Mercury is a recipe for violent misunderstandings and for accidents. Your conscious mind is not quick enough to navigate any danger that may come up. Higher or inner guidance is essential. (If you don’t have my inner guidance system visualization mp3, get your copy here.)

Fortunately, faith, trust and optimism are also in abundance, courtesy of Jupiter, ruler of the Sagittarius Full Moon (and the cosmic benefactor that ups any action he touches, usually with a silver lining, though you may have to wait to see it). Combine those qualities with the potent Mars/Pluto imperative and you can deftly restructure the beliefs that underlie your life. This Full Moon is wired to empower us to move beyond current mindsets. Jupiter is making an exact link to the Sun and the Moon that emphasizes the growth that we have already undergone. This link also primes and impels us to update and upgrade our thinking and beliefs.

We have choices in the nature, quality and content of information to which we expose ourselves. (Time to trim social media?) We have choices in what we think, say and believe about others. We even, and most importantly, have choices in what we think, say and believe about ourselves.

That last area of chatter is getting heavy lobbying from the skies. They have made it easy lately for each of us to mash on our own core wounds — but just as easy to catch ourselves. You may have noticed lately that certain lines of thinking are doing you more harm than good. You may even have noticed that certain lines of thinking don’t apply anymore, at all. The time is ripe for doing something about both: for moving your thoughts and beliefs about yourself into more nurturing, gentle and compassionate waters.

This is one of the gifts of the summer’s skies, thanks to a lovely flow between grounding, order-loving Saturn and Chiron, the wounded healer, which will last into next month. Jupiter’s in the flow with them at the moment and increasing this potential with the Full Moon.

True, these waters have dark undercurrents. Saturn does impose consequences and exact punishment, and he is in the foreboding, sometimes dangerous waters of Scorpio. (Hence the disquieting cocktail the news has been serving of abiding wounds, fear, attitudes about authority and deadly consequences.) We probably won’t like some of what we see and experience. We may well encounter demons and frightening thinking.

Ultimately, we stand to live more solidly, soberly and securely. The reason is the special relationship that Saturn currently has with the ruler of Scorpio, Pluto. (Each is in the other’s sign of rulership, a situation called mutual reception.) This relationship will reward responsible choices — and holds the promise of grounding and stabilizing the phenomenal growth spurt that’s coming.
