The Full Moon brings to the surface our instinctual, emotional truth...like sea life drawn to the surface of the water by lunar light.
The Full Moon sees the fruition of seeds planted 6 months prior on the Capricorn New Moon. What were you dreaming of, or planning for then? What is your harvest looking like now?

The Area of your birth chart that this Sun/Moon Axis falls in is the area of your life affected…Look at which ‘houses’ of your chart have Cancer and Capricorn on the cusp. (Make your free birth chart at astro.com/birthchart)
The polarity with the opposite sign, in this case, security and family oriented Cancer comes into play. We need to balance our need for external references of success, authority, and power, with internal cues. True rewards and accomplishments are found at a center point, encompassing the entire spectrum so balance the polarity and you will strike your personal harmony..ie, have your needs met.
The area in your chart with Capricorn on the cusp reveals the area of your life where you are ambitious, industrious and search for external success. You need recognition, some sort of autonomy, control or power, and can be somewhat conservative. The archetype for Capricorn would be ‘the Boss’ or the professional climbing the corporate ladder.
The opposite sign/house polarity is Cancer, the archetype of the Mother/carer/nurturer. There is always a delicate balance between what it takes to conquer the world or the biz/corporate ladder, and having a good solid foundation, strong roots, as well as internal reflection and guidance. In traditional heterosexual partnerships this polarity has been split between the male going off to work and the female taking on the home, children and nurturing. She misses out on all the great things that come with being out in the world, and he misses out on a wealth of love and connection. In truth we each need to meet the full extent of our needs, following our natural dispositions, regardless of what culture decrees for our gender, age, skin colour or heritage.
What area of life does this Full Moon fall in for you? If you have Capricorn on your 7th house cusp of Relationships you’d tend to prefer older partners (as does Angelina Jolie) as well as be somewhat upwardly mobile in your dating strategy. If you have Capricorn on the Cusp of your 9th house of higher education, teaching, and international travel, an opportunity or strategy in those areas should come to light over the next few days.
This link will take you to a New York Times article that illustrates the balance between Capricorn efficiency and how Cancerian care, empathy and shared personal stories are the keys to the most consistently successful teams. Seems like a no-brainer but illustrates how far the polarities still need to re-balance in Corporate Biz environments.
This month’s Full Moon is Square freedom-at-any-price Uranus in Aries, so just watch the foot on the accelerator if you’re thinking of making any fast moves for power or control. Make sure you don’t throw out any babies with the bath water. Think Moses, they come back years later serving up a better-late-than-never dish of cold, hard, karma. Dot your I’s and cross your t’s, make sure you’ve got everything signed and sealed.
Anything to do with Capricorn is best done properly. You won’t want to but innovation, doing things differently and sudden deviation from the course will cause you tension until you go with it. The more you resist the tenser it gets and the more extreme any course correction will seem.
Cheers and I hope you enjoy (and make the most of) the industrious and hardworking energy of Capricorn!

After reflecting on and reworking plans, changing ideas, re-working a strategy
it’s time to look at how you can really implement those changes.
Mercury is completely out of retro-shade (shadow) by Feb 15 so you’ll be clearest then to implement as more aha moments are likely to come your way between now and then.
Being in Capricorn there is an overlay of re-assessing how you express your authority, organize and structure your communication, learning, including tech and systems for those.
Short trips for business or professional reasons would be timely now.
After Feb 15 go-ahead to initiate new ideas, contracts, sign, purchase etc.
New information tends to come to light during retrogrades, as well as people and ideas from the past that can be re-worked or re-visited to compliment today, especially in terms of profession, authority, business, planning, and strategy, or even something you’ve decided you’d like to work at and master. A startup or business course would appeal to many as well as refreshing yr blog or website to look more professional.
Have you noticed how Mercury Retrograde has impacted your life over the last few weeks?
Any new bright ideas, a reworking of plans or just things gone totally awry..communication breakdown, or breakthrough??

Venus is how we socially lubricate..what we love, what we find pleasurable..the qualities and values we have and are attracted to. It’s also how we flirt and attract.
The sign Venus is in lends the description of traits and values…
Currently, Venus is transiting through the zodiac sign of Capricorn after a month in Sagittarius. In sag there was an extra reason to carry over the holiday season, go out, mingle, dance, sing, and if you were lucky, do some traveling.
In Capricorn, the lens of love and pleasure shifts to practical pursuits. There is real joy in setting goals, strategic planning, whether in your life or for practical business-oriented reasons. Taking responsibility or looking at your ability to respond, esp for your loved ones as well as socially is a key.
Maturity and authority are attractive under this sign so a polished professional look will work wonders for you during this transit.
The love of business or the business of love? If you are in business for yourself this would be a good time to network as Venus also joins Mercury (thinking and planning as well as communication and learning: business) and Pluto (transforming business).
The ‘house’ or area of your life Venus is transiting through tells you where you’ll be feeling extra social, loved up, and where you’ll find you are attracting for all the right reasons.
