"We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more." - Carl Gustav Jung

Capricorn Full Moon

Welcome to a somber Full Moon, full of concerns for such serious issues as home and business security and much needed change in national government as well as financial security. The Moon exactly opposes the Sun at 6:56 pm, accentuating 28 degrees of the Cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. As action signs, you are being urged to take charge and make necessary changes in those areas of your life that involve how you want to see yourself in the world and how you want the world to see you. This involves your relationships at home and at work.

   The chart for the Full Moon also shows communicative Mercury making a productive aspect to serious Saturn. The harmony between these two planets can bring about positive growth and help to ensure that you're moving in the direction of creating a more stable foundation for yourself. Speak your mind ask for what you need and remember to be clear and concise.

   With Capricorn Moon bringing ease to interactions with giant Jupiter today, business dealings benefit and temperments are mostly pleasant. There was an unplanned disruption midday when Luna squared off with Unconventional Uranus. However temperaments were helped to get back on track with cooperation from Mars mid afternoon, lifting spirits and heading us in the right direction again.

   Overall, this moon phase should shed light on what we need to take care of and how we're doing being true to ourselves. So, while changing the world today isn't your responsibility, imagine how much would be accomplished if everybody took care of their own business and and stopped telling each other how to live!

   Remember, while putting one foot in front of the other, to keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground!

Cancer New Moon & The Fourth of July

   Today's new Moon just happens to fall on the Fourth of July - how awesome is that?! Fireworks, family, food, friends and fun, a wonderful prescription for summer and Independence Day. With the Lights, Sun and Moon, riding the comfortable waves of this Cardinal Water sign together, we can make time for enjoyment and really look at what gives us security in our homes. Some may be seeking a new home, while others are working to maintain or fix up their homes. Whatever your situation, your nest and comfort figures strongly between now and the Full Moon in two weeks.

   The chart for the New Moon has the Sun and Moon conjunct Mercury first, then Venus later tonight. Thinking, talking and planning for what makes you feel supported and safe is the focus of the first alignment. pay attention to dreams that may have suggested what you're seeking. Creative outlets get a lot of boost today for expressing oneself as Luna harmonizes with Neptune. Spending time in, or on, or near the water, in whatever form gets the green light, big time!! Whether it's the ocean, pool, river or lake, get your feet in the water and enjoy the sensation.

   The alignment of Mercury with the Sun and Moon sets up an aspect of adjustment to Saturn, reminding us that while we are planning for new possibilities, responsibility still looms large. Take care of business and watch the details you haven't yet ascertained fall into place.  You do your part and let others do theirs and it will all work out in the end!

   A challenging opposition from the same three planets mentioned above, to transformational Pluto can help you use your power constructively for good or destructively if you try to assert your will too fast, too soon. Baby steps will work well here; you learn to crawl first, then walk, before you can run! Watch for signs of light seeping through the cracks and know that change is inevitable. Your only course of action is to choose what path you'll take once the way becomes clear.

Happy Fourth everyone, and remember... while keeping your head in the stars and your feet on the ground, be safe out there and watch where you're going~
