Capricorn Full Moon & A Gift From Venus & Jupiter

   Tonight's Full Moon at 9 degrees of Capricorn, offsetting the Sun at 9 Cancer, points out where your present security lies. This is especially true around home and real estate concerns and/or your career path. Whatever your focus has been during the past two weeks of this lunar cycle, it's becoming clearer what your actions need to be. Cancer and Capricorn, besides being polar opposites, are Cardinal signs, that need to take a leadership position to secure stability.

   The Full Moon chart shows some strong and interesting alignments that you need to be aware of and use to your advantage. First, Venus, purveyor of love and beauty, joined optimistic and expansive Jupiter in Leo very early this morning. This positive union has been building over the last week and its affects will still be felt for a couple more days. Efforts to improve your appearance or your surroundings can bring positive results. Spread your loving feelings around to family and friends and if a new romance is blossoming, well, it could be really nice!

    Another feature of this chart is an opposition from Capricorn Moon to action-oriented and aggressive Mars. Watch out for arguments or provoking words that can set someone off. If you are trying to assert yourself, it may not go well. Put your passionate energy into actively cleaning your house, exercising or working on a creative project! You may feel like you need to defend your family in some way and that would be a natural response to any aggression directed at you.

   Let's look at the communication skills of Mercury, harmonizing with both the Venus/Jupiter conjunction and the Great Awakener, Uranus. The sextile between Mercury and Venus/Jupiter can bring opportunities to be sociable and meet new people. This same aspect from the Messenger of the Gods to out-of-the-box Uranus can shake up our perspective on the past, allowing us to let go of the outmoded while waking us up to new possibilities. These very positive energies will facilitate growth and change where it is needed, as long as we don't go back to sleep.

   Lastly, I want to mention that the Sun and Moon are square to the Moon's nodes at this time. With the North Node in Libra, relationships and harmony are the issue and where we ought to be striving for balance. The South Node in Aries reminds us that going it alone won't help here. Won't you let the Full Moon illuminate your path to wholeness?

   Remember, keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground~
