On July 19th, 2016 we collectively step into the energy of the Full Moon in Capricorn.
We recently moved through the emotionally charged New Moon in Cancer where we were given an opportunity to process our feelings in the arms of the “Great Mother.” Now, with the Capricorn Full Moon we are met with the stable grounding force of the “Great Father” archetype. It’s as if Mom is saying “enough tears, now go talk to your father!”
The Capricorn energy presents a perfect opportunity for us to find solid ground after the recent upheaval of family/relationship dramas, wounded places, and charged emotional scenes.
The stable “Father” energy invites us back to center. As Mother tends to nurture and coddle, Father asks us to take responsibility and reconnect with our backbones. We are invited to stand strong in our own inner authority and become independent of the good or bad opinions of others.
Capricorn energy invites us to aim high, get clear on our life’s work and build the foundations on which our mission can stand. But, the recent high tides of emotional energy during the Cancer New Moon may have caused our internal compass to spin out, leaving it pointing in directions that may not actually be in alignment with our highest good. As intense emotions move through us it can become difficult to think in a practical clear-eyed way, we may have become a bit clouded. So, the work of this Full Moon is to recalibrate and make sure that we are moving in a direction that is in alignment with our deepest truth and not one that has been conditioned by a recently overly stimulated emotional body.
Imagine you are a tree, with branches reaching up toward the sunshine, toward your true north. Then imagine a literal flood [of emotion] coming in and rising up above your branches – in survival mode, your branches bend, sway and point in directions that aren’t necessarily natural but enable survival based on the tumultuous circumstances. That is the condition we have been navigating during the Cancer energy. But now, as the [emotional] floodwaters recede it is time to step out of survival mode and reconnect to your roots.
As your branches dry, and your emotional body becomes lighter, recognize that certain branches may have bent in directions that have been conditioned by the water [emotion] rather then what is natural. So, here we find ourselves, with a need to reconnect to ourselves in order to reorient our branches. We want to make sure they are pointing up toward the sun, that we are pointing in the direction of our truth north before we take definitive steps forward again.
As we watch the emotional waters of fear, doubt and pain recede we are given the Capricorn gift of reconnection to our clear-eyed truth and “eye on the prize” mentality. It is then that the “Great Father” gives us his blessing to take on the hard work necessary to grow and move forward. Capricorn invites us to “dry off”, re-center and ground. From that place of rootedness and laser beam focus, we begin our journey toward our mission again – confident that each step we take is a step in the right direction, pointing right toward the sun.
