It has been an emotional past couple of weeks, the sun in Cancer has definitely been rocking the boat with waves of emotion. Actually, until very recently, there were 3 planets in Cancer (Sun, Mercury, and Mars) intensifying the emotional energy. In addition to upping our emotional sensitivity, the sun in Cancer draws our attention to the things that are truly important, family, home, and securing our future. So while we have been working hard towards creating stability and showing love it’s likely that the voice of doubt or insecurity has been whispering (or yelling) in your ear. As we move closer to the full moon on July 8th (Pacific)/9th (Eastern), those whispers grow increasingly louder, please listen to it!
Riding an emotional roller coaster is rarely fun, it’s likely that you may be trying to tune out or flat-out ignore what you are feeling, especially if you think that your emotions are our of balance right now. However, those doubts, fears, and insecurities are the very things that you should to listen to. Let them tell you their story, allow yourself to let the emotions flood you, for now, and then use the Full Moon in Capricorn as your life boat; climb inside the grounded practical energy of this full moon, from this vantage point you will be able to gain perspective and see your fears and doubts for what they really are. You could easily find yourself gaining understanding and acceptance. Understanding and acceptance are the keys to releasing and remove anything emotionally weighing you down.

The moon is making a very strong connection to Pluto. Pluto is the planet of major transformation and has connections to fear as well as long-standing traditions. The Moon and Pluto combo signifies a major shift taking place within our emotional self and belief system. Fears surface to be confronted presenting you with the choice to either cling to the familiar or do the work to heal, release, or change. The combined energy of the moon and Pluto influences good judgment, emotional clarity, and strengthens your instincts to know what needs to be done. It is time to make a conscious dedicated effort, half-baked attempts and short-cuts will get you nowhere fast. This is also a good time to get things in order with or gain the support of the “powers that be” this could be spiritual but also includes government, banks, legal, or social service organizations. On the flip side, this energy could cause some to hold on too tight, resist change, or force their way in attempt to gain control, making things difficult for themselves and others.

During a full moon, the sun and moon sit in opposition in the sky; the sun is in Cancer while the moon will be in its polar opposite sign of Capricorn. Although Cancer and Capricorn are polar opposites they have a very similar goal, to create long-lasting stability and legacy for home and family. Capricorn is the masculine expression of this energy; its goal centers around creating physical stability by earning money, creating legacy (investments, reputation, ect.) and laying down the rules by which the family operates. Cancer represents divine feminine energy, the mother. Cancer’s job is to take care of the home and all those in it, similarly to way that Capricorn runs the business side. However, instead of a paycheck, Cancer’s payoff is love, security, and emotionally stability. The polarity between Cancer and Capricorn is where you will find your personal lesson from the full moon. Family, home, ingrained belief systems, creating financial and emotional security are the themes of this full moon cycle.

Connections to the mother and important women (wives, women leaders) as well as your connection to your own femininity if you are a women may also play a central role. Chiron, the wounded healer, and Venus will be having a heart to heart which makes this a very strong possibility for many. If romance hit’s a rough spot or has been heavy on your heart lately, it may have to do with deep-rooted fears developed at an early age that makes the idea of falling in love and having a family wonderful but scary at the same time. Those experiencing this may have to dive in deep to uncover the source of those fears to finally confront the root of the issue. What seems like bad lucky in romance could really be unconscious fears or emotional blockages reeking havoc on your ability to let love flow.
When you align your head and your heart you can achieve anything. Allow your head to listen to the fears of your heart and then use your logic and willpower to find a practical resolve and bring balance to whatever you face. Often times just allowing yourself to let go and clearing space is all that is needed for a new foundation to take hold and move you in a better direction.
