July's Full Moon occurs at 21 degrees of Capricorn on Friday, the 12th at 7:25 am. There's a mixed bag of activity this day that has the Moon interacting in challenging aspects to revolutionary Uranus and aggressive Mars, as well as oppositions to the Sun (Full Moon) and expansive Jupiter. The awareness that comes with these stressful planetary alignments at this point in the lunar phase ought to illuminate what needs attention in your life, especially in relationships, showing you where to act. Because the Moon rules instinctual behavior, you will also be shown where to detach emotionally from the problems so that you can accomplish what needs to be done.
For anyone with planets at or near, the 21st degree of the Cardinal signs: Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn, you will experience a big push to take some kind of action. Look before you leap! The Cardinal signs have been getting a lot of attention the past couple of years due to major planetary transits through those signs. The good news is that Cardinal signs can take action and begin things. The bad news is that the outer planets are causing much of the upheaval in our day-to-day lives that is trickling down to individuals and making people feel helpless. It only feels that way! While you cannot single handedly change the government or the financial atmosphere, there are things you can do for yourself.
Deciding to do only what you can do every day, as it comes, is your current assignment. Make sure that you take care of business first (Capricorn Full Moon), then balance that out with some self-nurturing time out. That may include a family BBQ, or dinner with friends, or an afternoon alone at the beach with a good book. Whatever gives you some comfort and serves to re-energize, not deplete you, is what you can do for yourself; work it into your busy schedule.
The day after the Full Moon finds Mercury moving back into Cancer after a retrograde relapse into Gemini. You are now free to move forward on the things you found out, uncovered or had to deal with during June, especially as they involve home, family, where you live or real estate. For some, that will mean actively pursuing a new home and for others, it may be fixing up your nest or acting on the decision to buy or sell. You can now make agreements and sign documents that you've held off on during Mercury's retrograde phase.
On Wednesday, July 6th, giant Jupiter moves into the Fixed Fire sign of Leo for the next year. This is a welcome relief after Jupiter's expansion of the waterworks in Cancer last year!! Children, creativity, drama, enthusiasm and determination are some of Leo's concerns. As an enthusiastic Fire sign, ruled by the life-giving Sun, Leo brings much to be hopeful and excited about. Cautions are pride, willfulness and a feeling of entitlement. When acting positively, Leo can be loving, offering support and encouragement to those who bask in the warmth of his light.
Remember, keep your head in the stars, your feet on the ground and your heart open to Leo's Love & Light~
