“Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want so that they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then, do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.” – Margaret Young
Full Moons provide us with a chance for full illumination. They are also a time when we are urged to let go of whatever is holding us back. Today’s Full Moon in ambitious Capricorn (2:52 pm EDT), the sign associated with outer achievement, affords us a chance to see how we are honoring our inner self (Cancer) by our life’s work (Capricorn). Or maybe through an avocation.
With today’s Full Moon conjunct perceptive Pluto, we will likely be receiving some kind of feedback about how our present outer path is or is not aligned with what we sense is our soul’s special destiny. Pluto’s activated ray can be very insightful as it helps us to experience what is at our inner core, with Pluto governing our subconscious side. Pluto is also thought to be connected to our past lives, so there could be elements from our karmic past now that are unfolding around us that we should maybe be paying closer attention to.
The Moon-Pluto conjunction may also fill us with a deeper sense of our own power, along with corresponding knowledge of what we must do for ourselves now if we are to continue to progress in the world as our soul originally intended. This Full Moon is also supplying us with a chance perhaps to do some tweaking or revising (Pluto) of our worldly goals and ambitions. Moon-Pluto, at its highest expression, can be very healing and regenerating, but sometimes the playing field must first be leveled for the healing and rebirth to take place.
We may also be receiving fresh insights now into the impact of our early roots (Cancer) upon our lives in the present. This could be due to certain incidents occurring around us that ignite our memories. Also, with rebellious Uranus squaring this Full Moon we may become keenly aware of a need to move beyond some of our early conditioning (Cancer), especially with respect to what we were maybe taught about what was or was not possible for us to achieve in the world (Capricorn).
Enterprising Mars, the planet of initiative, is also shifting into diplomatic Libra today, the sign of “the other.” What this suggests is that we can likely achieve much more now by working together, in the coming weeks ahead, instead of flying solo on our own. “If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.” Henry Ford
There may also be some exhilarating things happening for us on the personal relationship front as this lunation is also housing lovable Venus in sextile aspect to electrifying Uranus. A time when sudden romance can crop up in the most unexpected of places. “If grass can grow through cement, love can find you at every time in your life.” Cher
The house in our chart that contains the Full Moon in Capricorn is the area of our life that is likely reaching a culminating point for us now. It is also that part of our lives where we may want to be emptying ourselves of what is no longer useful to us. This can also include ridding ourselves of attitudes and self-limiting beliefs that no longer serve us. The Full Moon’s impact lasts two weeks till the next New Moon.
How do you define success? What do you sense that you were born to do? What are you most proud of accomplishing? What one thing do you still want to achieve more than anything else in your life? How do you think the people in your life are helping you to realize your destiny? What could you do to help others to succeed now?
Happy Full Moon blessings!
