It’s FULL MOON FEVER with a lovely n large La Luna calling for us to shed our flotsam and jetsom to better focus on what’s real and most essential.
Like sea life drawn up from the depths into view by lunar light, our instinctual, emotional nature is more apparent and conscious.
The full Moon is a culmination of intent and action sewn 6 months prior on the NEW Moon in CAPRICORN. What harvest are you reaping? How are your needs being met? Is it a Full Moon feast or famine?
To refresh your memory look back on the New Moon post (link below) or check your calendar for Dec 29, 2016.
Urge to Purge
Pluto the planet of transformation flanks this Full Moon in Capricorn. Pluto is the ultimate truth sayer. It foretells of razing everything unessential back to the absolute bone. If your emotional scaffolding isn’t built on sure ground, Pluto will get to work. If you no longer need your scaffolding or crutches, yet haven’t shed them to stand strong in your own right, they’ll be torn down with or without your permission. Let them go, you are ready.
The urge to purge or let go in order to transform is a strong theme this month. Have you realized you’ve let something go in your life (or have been resisting), or a foundation stone of your life has been removed? Capricorn is about stepping up, with Pluto in the mix you’ll be stepping up into your power in some way, taking the baton, the mantle. You don’t need to lean on or rely on the past, this is the beginning of your first apparent steps at your next level. Move forward.
The Devil Inside
In traditional Astrology, Pluto is seen as a ‘Malefic’. As evil doom and gloom because this phase of life can be confronting and challenging, the more we resist the more painful, even terrifying it can be. Let’s face it, life in the comfort lane is safe because we know what to expect, even if we know it’s not right for us anymore.
In modern Astrology, planets represent a psychological aspect of our nature as well as timing in terms of cycles of personal growth. The Area this Full Moon falls in your birth chart represents the area of life you’re ready to get down to some serious business in.
Capricorn is the Devil card in Tarot, as Christianity demonized previous values on natures intelligence and abundance. We hold the key to our own chains. This Moon could see us facing and accepting some well repressed taboo truths about ourselves, our true nature and our needs so we may walk free.
If someone were to give you permission to do that, who would it be, and what would they say? Write it down as if they were speaking to you. This could also be a dialogue between your adult self, your inner child and even what you would say to you now from your death bed, at your oldest and hopefully wisest.
Since Full Moons are always in polarity with the Sun in the opposite sign, this month the Sun in Cancer is conjunct Mars. So Pluto Moon and Mars Sun are in a bust-up that needs to find some sort of harmony between authoritarian dictatorship and tight yet warring clan like consciousness.
Pulling the tension into a ‘t-square’ configuration is Jupiter in Libra demanding we spread our wings in relationships. Break out of old patterns of the past. The tension could come from relationships or it could be the urge for more freedom, equality, and justice (think the fight for equal marriage vs outworn concepts of family units, power hierarchies extending out to our own governmental system designed the way a hierarchical business or old school family unit is designed. There’s an imbalance of power which wastes an incredible amount of resources and favors the few).
How are you noticing this in your own life? How could you introduce more freedom and equality into your life without throwing out the baby with the bathwater in terms of your own security, family, home in a way that better balances work/career and vice versa?
Through the Looking Glass
Using my life as an example, the Full Moon/Pluto combo has fallen in my 8th house of death, sex and regeneration, also seen as other peoples resources that we benefit from like inheritance, working with others resources like an investment banker.
Literally one of the foundational people from a most impressionable time of life (15) has passed away. Johnathon was both patriarch and matriarch, a focal point for generations of a creative community who may have been disparate and less cohesive as a community without the pivotal base and personality he provided. He shone a light on an unlit path by modeling a way of living authentically to one’s creative self-expression while embracing others for theirs. I wouldn’t be who I am today without having known, and being greatly influenced by him and the community he had a hand in building.
At the same time, I’ve let go of a partnership in which I needed more space than it had to give. Jupiter in Libra is in my 5th house of creative self-expression and romance. Rather than let the Pluto/Mars bust up bruise, batter and waste resources (Sun-Mars in my 2nd house of personal values, resources, security and $), we’ve brought in the grace bestowed by Jupiter in Libras luck by negotiating a fair deal that’s a better fit, while maintaining absolute stability in terms of security and home. Letting go entirely of the past (Pluto Moon), of expectations (fantasy and delusion) and keeping what works, and what’s real (all we have is the present and potentially the future). The cycle of Jupiter in Libra in my 5th house can now be met without restriction, with some changes that challenge how things ‘ought to be done’, yet suit our individual personal needs.
