Full Moon in Capricorn – July 12, 2014 7:25 am EDT

“July’s Capricorn full Moon falls on July 12 and it is the first of three super moons – which means that the Moon is at its closest approach to Earth – it will be at perigee.” Astrologer Lynda Hill.

Check out the 3 minute video on Super Moons at this NASA site.

During the Full Moon in Capricorn (with Sun in Cancer – opposite the Moon) – dealing with priorities at work and home come to the forefront. Full Moons can bring up opposing issues and concerns. When the Moon is in Capricorn – career takes centre stage – we want to focus on our ambitions and desire for accomplishing goals that are practical and measurable. Meanwhile, the Sun in Cancer is calling us home. Balancing demands of work and home is key here.

The Moon will be connecting with Pluto in Capricorn several hours before it’s full. Moon-Pluto combination in stoic Capricorn can bring up hidden emotional issues that we’d rather not face and that we’d prefer to keep hidden. At the same time, passionate, unpredictable Uranus in Aries – makes tense angles with the Sun, Moon and Pluto. We may surprise ourselves and those around us – with unexpected emotional outbursts. Under Uranus’ influence –there an urge to break free and vent our frustrations at feeling constrained. We yearn to express our uniqueness and be unhindered by old conservative limitations.

The energies of Pluto and Uranus in conflict have been occurring on and off since 2011 – the cycle will be complete in Spring 2015. This is evident in the escalating confrontations in the Middle East and elsewhere. What’s occurring is the collapse of systems and institutions that have weak economic, environmental and political foundations. Uranus brings in a cycle of breakdowns and breakthroughs. This is a time to move forward with creativity and ingenuity as we address our major systemic challenges.

Personally – it’s time to clear out old and dysfunctional habits and cultivate an attitude open to innovation. These are intense times – watch that you don’t get carried away. Stay grounded. Be kind and compassionate. We need that right now.

Meanwhile – Mercury is moving through bright social Gemini until July 14th and then enters emotional Cancer for the rest of July. Our mission – if you will – is to remember that we have the choice to react emotionally to differing points of view – or to listen and consider another’s opinions – even if we don’t agree with them. Ask yourself – is it better to be loving or is it better to be “right?” Mercury in Cancer is excellent for story-telling, empathic sharing and community building.

Venus moves through social Gemini until July 19 and then moves into home-loving Cancer until August 20. The emphasis is on seeking security and being with family and friends. It’s a time to nurture and be nurtured.

In Summary: These are tumultuous times. The energies of “opposing” priorities, needs and values can feel confusing and frustrating. Give yourself a few moments each day to stop and breathe. Release. This will keep you balanced and grounded. Focus on the “big” picture. Take a moment and ask yourself what really matters? Let go of the rest.

Understanding our birth charts helps clarify the nature of our struggles and the nature of our gifts . What are our strengths and where do we get stuck? What are the timings for each planetary cycle and how are we affected? Deeper self-knowledge is vital for developing acceptance and compassion for ourselves and others. Astrology helps us remember that the challenges we face are cyclical. Our birth charts highlight opportunities where we can learn and grow.
