Full Moon in Capricorn: Step by Step

Sun in Cancer

Matter of continuum
Depth and breath
Of thin air.

One step taken
Carefully and slowly
Marking each in pace.

Diving deep to feel the
Sting of new beginnings.

Structure and form taking
Shape as carefully calculated
Pause instinctively recoils……

Tonight the Moon waxes full in the astrological sign of Capricorn-Cardinal Earth. We need a space of strengthening after the recent events of several month’s worth of injustice, hate, violence, terror and words spoken that reek of content that is neither honorable nor truthful. Now, the need for sure-footedness and graceful navigation on an earth that is shifting and changing in response to humanity’s cries for change!

Although Sun and Moon are in opposition (the usual aspect for a Full Moon), the sweet spot is the ability to refine and navigate the emotional landscape with the ease of the Sea-Goat; the astrological symbol for Capricorn. This is a creature that is able to dive into the depths of sea waters and scale the heights of aether and air. All with the preciseness and grace of the
goat or ram of our physical existence.

Cancer is a water sign, ruled by the Moon and is steeped in the identification and security of home and family (whether biological or other). Here the emotions run deep and are fed by relationships that fill the heart’s thirst for interconnectedness. Capricorn, takes that space of centeredness or the secure mid-ground, if you will, and uses it as the earthly rooted tether that allows for movement back to the waters of home that fed it or up towards the heavens and outer world that inspire it. Thinking on these two as Father (Sun) and Mother (Moon), the mid-point of rootedness is knowing that each is in support of fostering emotional support and encouraging the exploration of moving out into the world in search of what that new definition of stability and security may become.

Anchor in Those Footholds
KALYMNOS CLIMBING_Smailos
The Master waits at
The Gate and the Adept
Reaches out gingerly before
The hand withdraws.

And the steepness of drop
Reverberates at the base
Of darkened overflowing well.

Gold coins falling as leaves
Carried within the space
Of hope-filled airy breath….

Capricorn is an Earth sign and the quality of earth expressed is that of strength and agility in navigating the paths of mundane existence, both pleasurable and challenging. Its modality is Cardinal in nature, which means that strength and agility will be rooted as the foundational energy of fresh starts, new gifts of manifest earthly) use and the building of skills that will serve in future strivings. The ability to remain firmly rooted and anchored in whatever goal is set and to remain steadfast in the accumulated efforts towards that goal can be called upon to stabilize. The bumps in the road do not change, but your approach and the means by which you get to that place you desire can become intentional acts of anchoring and centeredness. All, very useful in how we choose to proceed in the months ahead and what we remember of the challenges that have been left behind.

Once again the ascent begins
The space of time claiming
The continuum of Earthy
Strength and Will.

One step taken
Carefully and slowly
In newly informed pace….
