FULL MOON IN CAPRICORN: The Soul’s Mountain
The mantram of the astrologer is: AS ABOVE, SO BELOW. This is my prayer, my incantation; as I serve to translate the divine urging of this sacred juncture that is set before us.
The Full Moon arrives at 6 degrees of Capricorn on Thursday, June 28 at at 12:52 AM EDT
The splendor and magnificence of a Full Moon transports us from the ordinary to the extraordinary. While Full Moon cycles provide us with high energy and emotional magnitude, they also stir the cauldron of our multidimensional souls; for the soul contains a potpourri of dualistic ingredients. The Full Moon is a magnificent mirror which provides us with an opportunity to look within; to really look. As we look deeply within, we are graced with the ability to look without as well; for Full Moons are quite relationally revealing; offering insight, illumination, and awakening.
We often traverse our lives in a sort of trance state, weighted down by emotional stagnation; an accumulation of wounds, sorrows, and woes. At this juncture we are suffering from a state of ennui, a world weariness which often leads us to boredom, depression, lethargy, and restlessness. We are also filled with a sense of heightened responsibility within our own lives as well as for the collective conditions of humanity. While this Capricorn Full Moon, fueled by Saturn, will highlight these themes within our own lives, we are imbued with the opportunity for both fervent and disciplined emotional expression. As we honor the realm of the Moon which is our emotional milieu we pave our own road to healing and self-realization.
The cosmic tone is one of elevated seriousness and the call to situations which require great responsibility. We may not exactly welcome additional responsibility, however, rising to the challenge of what is set before us links us to true devotion of the moment. The Capricorn Moon will be the grounding force providing us with steadfastness, patience, and adherence to the path. Thus, we look to the qualities of Capricorn to see us through this arduous and trans-formative interlude of time.
Capricorn The Sea-Goat is a cardinal feminine earth sign ruled by Saturn. Capricorn embodies the archetypes of The Hermit, The Father, and The Prime Minister. Capricorn loves a challenge, even in the face of being daunted by what lies ahead. The Sea-Goat is an ancient mythological creature with great stamina. He will climb the highest mountain and swim the widest ocean to arrive at his destination of accomplishment.
Capricorn needs solitude in order to commune with the deep complexity that it’s ruler, Saturn, brings. While there is a tremendous desire for great accomplishment, there is also a deep seated fear of failure. Capricorn is daunted by the unconscious life; that place deep within our psyche. It is here where one is being called to express in this lifetime. The time for realization of our destiny is now. Within the patterns of our destiny, there is free will.
During this lunation, Saturn, Capricorn’s ruler, is coupled with the Moon. This carries a heightened tone of seriousness for Capricorn. Saturn requires much of us during our lifetime. It speaks to discipline, integrity, accomplishment, and the sincere intent to walk the path.Whatever that path may be, and wherever that path may lead, Saturn only wishes for us to stand in our own authority as we make this incarnational journey. Some questions we may ask ourselves at this time: Who is the author of my own life? And if I am not the author of my life, who is then authoring it for me? Am I living from a place of of my own self-authority? Am I expressing my life force from a place of true authenticity? Where along the way do the brambles, sticks, and stones need clearing so that I may align myself with my soul’s true calling? If nothing else, we are embracing this time with a seriousness that is both sacred and necessary. The ever seeming mountain that stands before us, once climbed, is our gateway to karmic cleansing.
This Capricorn Full Moon cycle is facilitating our journey with the drive, strength and grounded determination that we need to move inner mountains. By doing so, we will clear a path. Once this path unfolds before us we will find determined strength to climb what we have once perceived as an unreachable peak. Once we reach the summit and see what lies on the other side, we will not be disappointed. Even if the journey has been a bit messy, a long awaited realization will have congealed to perfection.
Capricorn needs solitude in order to commune with the deep complexity that it’s ruler, Saturn, brings. While there is a tremendous desire for great accomplishment, there is also a deep seated fear of failure. Capricorn is daunted by their own greatness. Wherever Capricorn resides in your natal chart, is an area of great profundity, one which must be adhered to from a place of authenticity and self-authority. It is an area where you are being called to high achievement. And yet, this very realm may be challenged along the way with limitations, setbacks and delays. As a result, Capricorn can suffer from the proverbial inferiority complex. One of Capricorn’s most significant evolutionary tasks is to stay the course with the understanding that there are no shortcuts in attaining one’s goal. Capricorn’s ruler, Saturn, will test one’s character and self-confidence over and over again. This is when we call upon our inner Sea-Goat.
A most challenging three days is upon us. The Capricorn Moon will be the grounding force providing us with steadfastness, patience, and adherence to the path. Thus, we look to the qualities of Capricorn to see us through this arduous and trans-formative interlude of time.

During this challenging three day interval of heaviness, know that when we pick up the load, our lives become en-lightened.
Within the realm of density, there is ebullient light. The permutation of density is destiny. Pick up your destiny, wrap your arms around it, and carry it to the mountain
