CAPRICORN FULL MOON ECLIPSE JULY 2020
Pick your battles
The Full Moon Eclipse is at 13degrees Capricorn at 12:44 AM EST on 5 July, 2020.
Jupiter and Pluto are conjunct at 23 degrees Capricorn. Capricorn’s ruler, Saturn, is their neighbor at 29 degrees Capricorn.
The lineup opposes the Sun at 13 degrees Cancer. In Evolutionary Astrology we use wide orbs.
Uranus at 10 degrees Taurus is trining the Capricorn planets and sextiling the Moon and Mercury, who is retrograde at 7 Cancer. Mercury resumes forward motion on 12 July.
Mars at 4 degrees Aries is making a Cardinal square to the Sun, Moon and Mercury.
We are. Ring asked to begin and begin again. Cardinal energy has a two steps forward, one step back dance. We begin, we review, we readjust, and we resume forward motion. We stop along the trail, adjust the backpack, jettison what we don’t need after all, on this journey, and get moving again.
Full moons bring things to fruition. This one is also the last in a three-eclipse cycle that will affect at least the next six months.
The signature of Cancer is management of the emotional body. Typically it is the personal emotional body for which we become increasingly more responsible, or the pain caused by not taking responsibility increases.
The hermit crab, when the old house on its back begins to chafe, migrates to a new, better fitting house. We can shed emotional patterns that have begun to chafe at this time. Maybe they’ve been chafing so much, for so long, we have some scars. This makes it even a better time to move to emotional practices that work better for us.
Capricorn gives us the lesson of responsibility. In Capricorn we realized the limits of our personal authority and we may want to empower ourselves to increase our personal authority. Is this starting to sound like a current theme on the inner and the outer?
Typically, the Capricorn/Cancer axis represents the father/mother energy. There comes a time in the individuation process, that we can no longer simply look to our parental figures - government, corporations, schools, actual parents for how to navigate our lives - for how to behave. We must become the adult and bewill empower the individual and the collective.
With Pluto and Jupiter involved, especially, the intention is to expand our power and to take ownership of that increased power — like getting a superhero suit and experimenting with all of the cool stuff it allows us to demonstrate in the world.
Getting familiar with our own, bespoke superhero suits would be a fun exercise this full Moon.
We embodied this time to build and wear these suits that allow us to embody our own, personalized abilities, strengths and gifts.
This suit puts all of them in a package together to be utilized for the greatest evolution and service to the self and to the whole.
When we start to fully embody the truth of who we are, we may find some surprise features - strengthens and abilities that we didn’t even know we had.
These are a by-product, a bonus, that comes with the steps toward engagement and empowerment.
When we move into the fullness of life on all levels, life will move more and more in harmony with us.
May this full Moon continue to reveal the truth of who we are, the empowerment of the fullness of our being – on the individual and the collective level — for the good of all.
