Dear Friends, 

Are you ready to apply yourself to something that you can build? This Full Moon in Capricorn is opening the opportunity for you to access the discipline to make something happen in your world. This shows us where we are not in the world alone. We have to carve out a place for ourselves in the outside world. This is the sign of social responsibility. Build a reputation for yourself in the world. What mark will you make? What will you contribute? Capricorn describes the need to define your goals, and build something you can count on. Its house describes where you are territory-conscious, where you need to feel secure. Here, you need respect, recognition, and approval from the outside world. The responsibilities and limitations encountered in this area of your life involve the need to show up. The challenge for this house in your chart is perseverance and hard work. While things may not come easily here, efforts will be rewarded, if your energies are channeled constructively. Capricorn is structure within you and outside of you. Work on that structure.

THE FULL MOON A TIME TO RELEASE IS ON JULY 1ST, 2015 AT 10:20PM EDT AT 09 DEGREES CAPRICORN 55 MINUTES. Let go of what is finished or what you cannot change and get in control. 

Are you ready to take control? Are you ready to seize the moment? This Full Moon in Capricorn joined with Pluto wants to know if you are all in. If you are not you better get out of the way. Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, is at the last degree of Scorpio also communicating the same message. It is time to tear down what is no longer valid and put your energy into renewal. Let’s make things better.

Every sign is divided into 12 two and a half degree sections called dwads. This Full Moon is in the Aries Dwad of Capricorn. Aries is a Fire Sign. The sign of the pioneer and new beginnings. Fire signs are goal oriented, and concerned with future opportunities. This sign brings inspiration and the desire to move forward. Goals are necessary for the fiery energy to get cooking. Aries is where you were born to lead the way. The house Aries is on in your chart shows where you get the experiences that bring the opportunities to develop yourself. The Planet Uranus is in Aries now revealing who we are. It is time to be authentic. This Full Moon will put you into a situation where you can show who you are and what you have to offer. 

Saturn rules this Full Moon. Saturn is currently in the last degree of Scorpio retrograde. Saturn is resuming direct motion in a month. We are feeling the intensity of Saturn and the need to get serious about our relationship with others. For the last two and a half years Saturn has been teaching us about long term financial commitments and the need to set boundaries. Are you on top of those things? Investments not only in the financial area but also the value you place on relationships. Saturn and Pluto are in each others sign. This is known as a mutual reception. They are working together to help us work through things. This is very helpful if you need to get healthier or need to clean up a few things. Saturn has us backed against a wall this summer. Saturn in Scorpio is returning to us the seeds we have sown. What will you make out of this challenge?

Venus and Jupiter are in a very rare conjunction in Leo, visible in the western sky after sunset, and they are bringing protection and understanding during this intense time. This adds some positive energy to what is coming to the surface. These two are favorable to Uranus in Aries adding some inspiration. Mercury is in Gemini in a favorable aspect to Venus and Jupiter in Leo encouraging creative thinking and communication. This helps us have a good attitude in the midst of all this pressure.

The Full Moon is joined with Pluto so it is time to sort out priorities. What you need to pay attention to will be in your face. Mars is in Cancer with the Sun in opposition to the Moon and Pluto. There is no wiggle room here. There is something that needs to be faced. Are you and have you been on top of what is important to you?

This is a symbol of man's basic self-justification of the practical or commonplace side, and of his complete dependence on the cooperation of the world at large for any actuality of personal experience. He must ever take the initiative in meeting the needs of others if he is to expect them to stir appreciably and similarly in his own behalf. If he reaps in life he must sow abundantly, and he establishes himself as he expends himself and thereby encourages his fellows to do the same. The keyword is NURTURE. When positive, the degree is unusual success in dramatizing the potentialities of human nature and it ramifying achievements, and when negative, over concern with side issues.                                                             “Sabian Symbols” Marc Edmund Jones.
