“And will you succeed? Yes indeed, yes indeed! Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed!” ― Dr. Seuss
This evening, a Full Moon in Capricorn occurs at 6:57 PM ET. Capricorn is tough love personified; it inspires practical realities and perseverance. Not surprisingly, Capricorn is ruled by wise old Saturn, the planet that rules maturity and hard work; they can climb mountains just like their sign’s icon, the goat. This energy is kind of like a diamond in the rough; there’s possibilities to shine, but it’s about rising above what is bringing us down…
“We’re all for creative visualization and the Law of Attraction. However, the fine art of “manifesting” pairs well with personal responsibility. Or, as the saying goes: luck is where preparation and opportunity meet. The Capricorn Full Moon says, do the work and you’ll reap the rewards in due time.” -Astrotwins
The Moon’s emotional pull is super strong and with the Cancer Sun in opposition, some may be tempted to project their emotional shit onto those around them. The challenge will be to stay present and to communicate our truth without placing blame.
This is an opportunity to bring light and love to those long held resentments and wounds from the past that we are still carrying…letting go of our attempts to manipulate the world around us – people who don’t fit into our ideal of how things ‘should’ be.
“I can’t give you a sure-fire formula for success, but I can give you a formula for failure: try to please everybody all the time.” ― Herbert Bayard Swope
The Cancer-Capricorn polarity deals with the tension between our public, goal-driven self, versus self-nurturing and maintaining a happy home. It’s about who we are at our core and how we hold ourselves in the world because of that. How do we want to focus our time and energy?
If your birthday falls on January 17, plus or minus four days, the Full Moon will be glowing directly on you. The same is true if you have Capricorn rising at 28 degrees, or if you have a natal planet, rising sign, or natal moon in Capricorn, Virgo, Taurus, Pisces, Scorpio, or Cancer. XX
