On July 13th, 2022 at 11:37 AM PDT the Sun (Cancer) and Moon (Capricorn) oppose each other at 21 degrees 21 minutes. This is the second Super Full Moon this year, and one more to come in August. This is a powerful event as here we are looking at home and family opposite careers and reputation. With the current news cycles we are all set up for this one. How do we balance these polar opposites and move forward?
Capricorn is a Cardinal Earth sign. It is the sign that rules the 10th Solar month of the year, and the 10th house of the zodiac. This house begins with the Midheaven and speaks of what your career choice will be. This Cardinal sign begins the winter season, and with authority and strength leads the way. It is an Earth sign, grounded in reality and driven to produce something of value in the world. Its driving nature is embodied by the sea goat, the symbol for Capricorn, as it climbs steep passages to find sustenance and what it needs to survive, and can also dive to the depths. The ruling planet for Capricorn is Saturn, the taskmaster. This no-nonsense planet reminds us of our responsibilities and goals.
So when we have a Super Full Moon in this sign, we are looking at the culmination of what we have set for ourselves to accomplish, and whether or not we’ve achieved our goals. Conjunct the Moon is Pluto at 27 degrees Capricorn. We may have to admit our shortcomings here, as Pluto insists we release our excuses and transform our outlook. Together these two can uproot some intense hidden emotions that stir up feelings that need resolving. There can be a tendency to manipulate the situation, going silent or not admitting our part in a problem. Stick to the truth and accept the consequences. We can use this time to awaken our better selves, the one that learns from mistakes and doesn’t blame others for our own behavior.
Do you take the high road or the low road? At this time in history, there are agendas, plans for humanity that we didn’t make, and big changes in the playing field. Don’t let that be a deterrent and keep you from your goals. Sure, you may have to take a different approach than you hoped for, but you can still move forward. If you take the high road, you accept the reality of today's world and see your path within it. You don’t let yourself stop because of what others say or tell you to do. You explore new avenues. If you take the low road, you don’t feel responsibilities need fulfilling and you bend the rules to benefit yourself. Then you stay stuck in your misery, and tell others that you are a victim of circumstances.
The Moon is trine Uranus at 18 degrees Taurus. This is a blessing in that it bestows an uninhibited, spontaneous mood that seeks to find the unexpected or humorous in order to loosen people up and get them out of their rut. You will crave emotional stimulation, excitement, surprises, and anything new. You’ll love to feel free and unfettered. This will help with the otherwise heavy emotional toil.
In considering how to balance our home and family and our career potential, we begin with our set of circumstances. We see the challenges ahead, but if we consider how a mountain goat can climb the rocky cliffs and reach its destination, we see it’s all about being surefooted. Taking one risky step after another, finding our balance and continuing up the mountain. We may slide back, but once we gain our footing the climb becomes doable. We can use this time to take inventory of our situation and draw a new map to our target.
At times lately it seems there are those who want us to fail, who want us to suffer. I believe there is a grand fork in the road. One leads to fulfillment and the other to surrender. I for one choose fulfillment. Whatever your situation is, I encourage you to have strength in the face of pain or grief. To let go of your old existence and climb the mountain to the pinnacle. Whatever you do, whoever you are, you can improve yourself and your life! The key is balance.
