July 10th, 2014
When the Moon is Full it dominates the sky. Fertility, growth, emotions and memory are all Moon related issues. The seeds we plant bare fruit, the thoughts we have bare fruit, and the emotions we have bare fruit. We plant for growth right after the Moon is New and the Full Moon brings the results or in this same theme the fruit. There is a New Moon every 29.6 days so we have ample time to sow new seeds. At the Full Moon you bring things to completion and enjoy the results or you release the tension of whatever has built up. Each lunation cycle focuses on a different sign and house in your chart. The New Moon on June 27th, 2014 in Cancer helped us get settled after a year of uncertainty and growth as demanded by the Cardinal Grand Cross. That New Moon in Cancer was trine to Neptune in Pisces showing us the way. This Full Moon brings those issues to the table because it is in Capricorn allowing us to solidify what we want. This will bring closure or the end of a situation and the green light to move forward on the New Moon on the 26th of July. THE FULL MOON A TIME TO RELEASE OCCURS ON JULY 12, 2014 7:24 AM EDT AT 20 DEGREES CAPRICORN 03 MINUTES
The sign Capricorn brings responsibility. Build your position in the outside world. In other words career security and your position that you carve out for yourself. What mark will you make? What will you contribute? Capricorn describes the need to define your social territory and to find security. Its house describes where you build something to establish security through experience. That area may have required restructuring over the last few years with Pluto in there demanding focus and perfection. Here, you need respect, recognition, and approval from the outside world. 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. Patience is necessary.
Each sign contains thirty degrees of the Zodiac. Each sign is divided into three sections of 10 degrees called Decanates. This Full Moon is taking place in the Virgo decanate of Capricorn. Virgo is a mutable earth sign that reaches for the highest perfection. Taking care of endless details and routine jobs. The sign of humble service and patience. The never-ending maintenance of life, spotting flaws, and correcting mistakes. The goal is not to become trapped in the detail, but to develop an appreciation for it. The experiences offered here require analysis, assessment, digestion, and the elimination of those things that have proven unfit for future use. The experiences attracted in the Virgo house will make you aware of what needs your attention.
RULERS: SATURN/MERCURY The rulers of this Full Moon are Saturn because it rules Capricorn and Mercury because it rules Virgo. Saturn is currently in Scorpio retrograde. Saturn is resuming direct motion in a week. We are feeling the intensity of Saturn and the need to get serious about our relationship with others and our position in life. For the last year and a half Saturn has been teaching us about long term financial commitments. 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.
Mercury is in the last degree of Gemini indicating a finishing of something. Jupiter is in the last degree of Cancer indicating the accomplishment of things with home and family. The Full Moon is square to Mars in Libra. There is a need for appropriate action and to consider the feelings of others. Mars will be out of Libra after 7 ½ months on the 26th of this month. That will bring relief. Capricorn is all about taking the high road and taking responsibility. It is time for all to be grown up. Be an example for others and make the tough choices. It is time to show what you have. Bring out the good stuff.
THE SABIAN SYMBOL: A RELAY RACE. This is a symbol of an inevitable culmination for group opportunity, and of a continual enhancement of the individual's skills and talents through his thoroughgoing co-operation with others in some vital phase of experience. Human values are established as they become the coin of effective relationship between one person and another, and their dramatization is the means trough which man best discovers and refined his own latent potentialities. His importance to his fellows is his certainty of self-continuance. The keyword is FITNESS. When positive, the degree is exceptional skill in bringing the elements of any given situation to a functional wholeness, and when negative, complete inadequacy of self-resource. “Sabian Symbols” Marc Edmund Jones.
