The Full Moon is today. Look to the House where 27 degrees 40 minutes of Capricorn falls in your own birth chart for what’s on the astrological menu.
This Full Moon illuminates: Survival themes, wisdom of experience, strong roots and traditions, spiritual ambition and wise actions.
Focus on: Self-sufficiency, perseverance, the big dreams, cultural inheritance, financial matters, public image, taking control, personal authority, mastery of skills, getting credentials, strengthening the body (constitution), building real wealth.
The Cancer/Capricorn polarity has mysteries to share, like tuning into ancestral memory. The wisdom of blood and soil are heightened, and a possible source of rare strength, in a time of rootless, synthetic culture.
A way to muse on this lunar peak is to entertain Saturn, ruler of Capricorn. It’s time for practical magic, with earthy Capricorn upping the drive to tangibly manifest our desires. A huge dose of reality can have a stabilizing effect, since we know what we’re working with (the medium).
A key is finding traction, a weight for the feet, from the awareness of practical realities — without being dragged down by it to a point of inertia. With other factors in play, this is heavy magic. Here now, we align longings and purpose, with actions.
