CAPRICORN FULL MOON AND DIAMONDS IN THE SKY
by Maya White
What an amazing month ahead.
Wednesday, July 1st, we welcome the full moon in Capricorn. The Gemini new moon of June 16th was an invitation to think about and plan your next steps.
Now, the Capricorn Full moon ushers in the executive steps you will take towards fulfillment. Capricorn invites you to make good, pure, and powerful decisions. And next, to make a commitment and honor the decisions you’ve made.
Capricorn is a sign of control, and of course, there are both positive and negative ways this can be expressed. Good decision making is a quality energy that supports you and furthers your efforts. The spiritual lessons of Capricorn, however, are about connection working in partnership with a divine energy that is greater than your personal will. You must become determined and disciplined, and then surrender to a Divine Order.
Diamonds in the Sky
The night time sky is gorgeous now. Also on July 1st, the same day as the Capricorn full moon, the two benefactor planets, Jupiter and Venus join forces. You can actually look into the western sky and see them approaching their conjunction. When these two join forces, it’s an invitation to create beauty in your life. Under the auspices of a Saturn ruled Capricorn full moon – there will be long term benefits to decisions made at this time.
Diamonds are created through heat, pressure, and in alignment with Father Time.
You’ll have to be patient, because by the end of July we have 5 planets retrograde! Venus stations retrograde on July 25th; Uranus stations on the 26th. Venus and Uranus join Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto in the backwards dance. Important decisions are being made, and even good things are happening, but it’s all going on behind the scenes.
The new moon of July 15th is also spicy with Mars and Mercury joining forces to oppose Pluto. Get ready for a long, hot summer. You’re going to see a continuation of drama in the daily news, so hold on to your positive energy and don’t get distracted from your mission.
June served up a perfect planetary set up for an amazing July. One clear example of ‘as above, so below’ or, astrology in action was the Jupiter/Uranus trine on June 22nd. Under the auspices of this ‘Universal Citizen’ aspect, we saw some decisive action as the US Supreme court established legal rights for same sex couples. This is a perfect example of astrology in action; the courts are ruled by Jupiter, and a sweeping change of legal status was activated through Uranus.
July is your time for cosmic reconciliation. Watch and observe astrology in real life. Saturn breaks the spell when he stations direct on August 1st. Remember, Saturn just recently retrograded back into the anorectic, or critical last degree of Scorpio.
Jupiter and Venus are looking glamorous in the evening sky, but as ruler of the Capricorn full moon on July 1st, Saturn holds court now. Jupiter and Venus can also inflame an already irritated situation. For example, I secretly hoped that Greece would find a magical savior for their dire financial situation, but that does not seem to be the case; rather, the vultures are circling, waiting for fire-sale pricing on vacations.
Be happy that Saturn is cooling, predictable, stable, and solid. And, be sure to get out and watch this full moon rise because you’ll also see Jupiter and Venus shining brightly. If you know your chart, pay attention to the houses that are activated at this time. Leo and Capricorn are prime real estate. You can make you own magical wish, because that’s what it’s all about. It’s personal, and you’re going to get it right.
