Astrology Forecast for the 2015 Capricorn Full Moon

July 1-2, 2015

9 Cancer 55 / 9 Capricorn 55

Reality As We Know It is suddenly, startlingly, drastically morphing to carry out the change imperative that has been mounting for the past three years. While shifts continue to erupt and propel us forward, the Capricorn Full Moon offers a status report filled with information about their impact on our emotions and sense of security.

The focus of the examination is our bottom line, but that doesn’t mean the exercise is cold or quiet. Even with the Moon in stern, calculating, goal-fixated Capricorn, emotions are deep and passionate. Aggressive, protective instincts have kicked in. Fierce desires have come to light. So have ugly, frightened beasties — hate, paranoia, panic and the terror of sheer survival at stake. A bottle has come uncorked. Whatever is now on the loose — maybe a genie, maybe not — it is not going back in.

The next big phase of existence is already here. Last week’s groundbreaking social and political developments demonstrated that dramatically. (Did it ever cross your mind that the Confederate flag would come down? Mine neither.) The shifts are not only collective, of course. Your own life has catapulted onto a different platform as well. This week throws emotional reflection into the mix, as we continue to experience — and come to grips with — the ongoing reshuffling, reorganizing and rearranging.

It may help to reframe your current reactions as a cost/benefit analysis. Are you getting a return that has sufficient value to you on the time/energy/emotions/sweat/money you are putting into any given situation? Is it leading in a direction that you want to go? Does it feel good or right or safe to continue the investment, or would it be better to cut your losses now?

That line of analysis reflects a theme that is with us all summer, as Capricorn’s ruler, Saturn, slides back into the late degrees of resource-conscious Scorpio. The lord of rules and order demands responsible action (rewards it when it happens and imposes consequences when it does not). He is currently encouraging taking a deep breath, being an adult and dealing with potentially serious or costly loose ends from 2013-2014. They involve all manner of potentially messy, often private issues: joint finances (including splitting them, in divorce or via child support), debt, taxes, sex, trust and acting from integrity (or, at the other end, cloaking, lying or subterfuge).

Signs of how you feel about all this are rampant under the Capricorn Full Moon. Do you feel supported? Rewarded? Undermined? Betrayed? In shock? Up in arms? Determined to move on? Wherever you fall on the spectrum, and that will vary situation by situation, the emotions will end up being clarifying and, ultimately, motivating.

That’s because the two planets associated with our drive, will and actions, Mars and Pluto, are standing as honor guard to the Sun and the Moon as the luminaries reflect each other. Mars in Cancer was the last planet the Sun and Moon contacted before becoming full. All his tendencies in that sign inform the Full Moon: tender, clucking, protective behavior toward the tribe and its traditions (with the legal concept of family lately redefined); taking things personally; acting and reacting out of heightened sensitivity, hurt feelings, or just plain pissiness.

That’s the propellant of the immediate past. The near future brings more profound and decisive emotions and action, which play out over about a week. Thank the other bookend Pluto, the first body the Sun and the Moon will contact after separating. The Moon will cross over Pluto within hours; the Sun will oppose it next Monday, July 6.

This journey underscores the personal, emotional and long-term ramifications of the fundamental restructuring that has happened in our foundations. Influences are at work that are far outside conscious command, in both directions, from instinctive, cellular coding to utterly nonrational impulses to forces greater than any mortal will.

Desires and fears will be equally strong. Watch for behavior that reveals what’s going on below the surface in you and in others. Nothing is trivial. Breaks and rifts will occur that may not be mendable. And maybe that’s the point. Action hero Mars is exactly squaring the Nodes of the past and future, a dynamic aspect that pushes us to choose sides and march forward on our paths.  We could make swift, clean breaks that remove obligations and goals that are not really ours, or that would not deliver an appropriate return on investment for this stage of our lives.

Hang on to the positive potential. This Full Moon is lighting up plenty of it. Jupiter, the sky’s most optimistic and beneficent influence, and Venus, ruler of all we hold dear, are making a link to Uranus that has opened surprising possibilities. Some you’ve long wanted, some you never dared hope for, and all heartfelt to an extreme. They are the silver lining. They are the areas that will flourish because of any refocusing and eliminating that occurs now.

Some of it will even have a heaven-sent or meant-to-be streak. Neptune, the planet of higher love (and transcendence, and illusion, and, yes, delusion) is making an exact, cooperative link to the Full Moon. This encourages marshaling the tender, nurturing potential of Mars in Cancer and acting with gentleness and love for all concerned. It facilitates invoking the bravery of Mars,  Pluto’s fearlessness in the face of death, and Saturn’s preference for stepping up to responsibilities, and behaving cleanly, maturely and courageously.

Let emotions pour. (Cancers are having quite the time right now; be kind.) Be honest with yourself about your reactions and what they mean for your goals. Then act. Honestly, responsibly, lovingly.

Astrology Forecast for July 2015

July continues the forward thrust of late June – then invites do-overs that will make our eventual landing more solid and stable.

The state of our security is in focus as the month begins. The Capricorn Full Moon on the 1st tests the firmness of our foundations. How do we feel about them? About our goals at this point? Both have undergone quite the beating and reshaping of late. Do we will want to trudge along this particular road while it figures out what it’s going to be and where exactly it’s going? Maybe; maybe not. We may, in fact, want more — and are not merely open to a brighter path, but outright expecting it.

Such assured optimism spills over into relationships, which also buzz with potential and possibilities. You may know people who hold keys and resources. The more open you are, the more likely they are to share. Open does not mean aggressive, though. Making demands and slamming fists on the table are overkill. Gentleness and receptivity are the winning combo, especially on the 8th and the 13th. They will deliver the way around (or coping mechanism for) the immovables that present themselves now.

Cosmic hands point to tenderness and nurturing on the 15th, as an emotional gauntlet of uneasy influences lead in to the Cancer New Moon. Edgy, perhaps hungry desires spur a battle of wills, which whips up some less than rational thinking and makes itches scream all the more for scratching. The gauntlet will send us into the New Moon on a mission for comforting arms, for chilled Pinot Grigio, for scoop after scoop of soothing ice cream — after which we’ll regain our minds and both articulate and act on our emotionally overloaded thoughts.

The emotions dry out considerably when Venus moves to the first degree of Virgo, where she remains through July 31. The love goddess takes on earth mother mode in Virgo. Her standing guard at the sign’s doorway fills the second half of the month with a bent for unfiltered analysis and discernment — the paradox, as it were, of unrefined refinement.

Venus retrogrades on the 25th through September 6, and will bring warmth and drama back to relationships when she returns to Leo at the end of the month. Her bivouac in Virgo offers a break from indulgence and sun — encouraging us to be more choosy about companions and uses of our talents and money. The fortnight is tailor-made for looking at how well all of those serve you. Go cold turkey on people and habits that are not good for you. Think of it as a detox for your heart and wallet.

You’ll be equipped for the retrograde when it starts. You’ll go into it better knowing the location of walls, both inside you and defining your outside pathways. A big, bright blast of self-knowledge also helps; watch for it around the Sun’s entrance into Leo, on July 22.

Venus’ retrograde kicks off with impulsive, perhaps shocking actions, approaching whiplash levels, because of Uranus beginning his annual retrograde the following day. Freedom, the unconventional and alternative perspectives all pervade Venus’ backtracking. As with a Mercury retrograde, you can add “re” in front of most every verb, with a major caveat. The stakes are higher. Revisit situations, relationships, arrangements, talents and possessions that had meaning to you. Avoid buying anything major, or striking a business deal, or getting engaged or married. Items will not have the value you perceive, and the loss could be greater than you could possibly anticipate. Remember that as you enjoy the exciting, magical vibes of the first days of the retrograde, which are the last days of the month.

Enjoy the moments, but reserve judgment, commitments and acting in reliance on any of the sweet things floating by. What’s real will still be with you in the fall. Whatever isn’t…is the stuff of memories. Not learning experiences as in “oh, no, not another one” — but learning ever more about yourself.

2015 Gemini New Moon

June 16, 2015
25 Gemini 7
7:05 AM PDT / 10:05 EDT / 2:05 GMT

The Gemini New Moon moves our mental faculties into a new gear. The fog of the past few weeks is not so much lifting as becoming more manageable. Confusion and snafus may still be part of the picture — the planet of illusion is still having its way — but thinking feels clearer and more resolved. What’s more, all eyes are on the future — and there’s no turning back.

Part of the comfort comes from the ruler of the Gemini New Moon, Mercury, being in his home sign. He’s traveling, for the time being, in a demanding aspect to Neptune that is tied to illusion — uncovering it, whipping it up and, in some instances, dispelling it. This formula can short-circuit rational thinking. Resorting to, and relying on, faith, hunches and guidance is the way to go.

Staying in confusion is not the point, though. Thoughts, messages and travels all have a “forward, ho!” vibe to them. All are sending definite feelers into the future, thanks to Mercury making an easy link to the North Node of destiny. That Node represents the direction into which we are heading, individually and collectively. Because the North Node is in Libra, the new direction affects our social contracts and notions of equality, in addition to our personal relationship definitions.

The turmoil of the first part of the year may still be around us, but we’re no longer so embroiled in it. We’re contemplating where we’re heading, instead of fixating on where we’ve been.

Excitement’s building for new horizons, too. Our hearts and relationships are on board, with love and money goddess Venus cooperating with both Mercury and the North Node. (Offers and paths that open up now are the way of the future consider any carefully.)

Our engines are revving, too. Jupiter is fueling the catalyzing, self-actualizing properties of Uranus. Their link will be exact on June 22, setting into combustion an energy that sparked late last September and early this past March. We couldn’t quite move ahead then. Now it’s time to strap on our jet packs (or climb into a human cannon) and fly out of the rubble on to the new platform. Our minds explore it first. Watch how your perspective changes, as if pages have been ripped our, or a map crumpled up and a new course charted.
