rises at sunset and sets at dawn, therefore a midnight working (or when the moon
is directly overhead) is best. Now the moon is at the height of its strength - spells
cast at this time are ideal for completion. The Mother is represented by the Full
Moon. This is the prime time for rituals for prophecy, protection, and divination.
Any working that needs extra power, such as help finding a new job or healings
for serious conditions, can be done now. Also love, knowledge, legal undertakings,
money and dreams. Astrologically the Sun and Moon are in opposition (ie., opposite
each other in the sky and in opposition signs of the zodiac). She opens and blossoms
during the Full Moon into the FLOWER, with the desire to share Her beauty with
others. Keywords for the Full phase are: fulfillment, illumination, realization and experience.
It is the time in a lunar cycle that you are given a clear view so that you can make
adjustments to put you back on track to manifesting the goals you set at the New Moon
phase. Go to a public place. Do something with a friend. LISTEN. Receive awareness.
just have to be more gentle on our souls if we're not there yet. Lead and manage but do
not manipulate or control. This transit is a time to: build, dig, organize, exercise discipline,
work on foundations, make practical progress on a dream. This transit concerns leadership
issues, security, responsibilities, the need to be recognized, the desire to create environments,
a time to take care of business, deal with alternative healing for your body and intensification
of your powers of concentration.
After Sagittarius expansiveness, we now feel contraction and a time to pay attention to our
needs for security, duties, obligations, drives and ambitions. It's a good time for setting goals,
'going for it' materially as now we feel persistent and ambitious. But it is a bad time to ask or
obtain anything from patriarchal and established authorities. Capricorn brings a desire to
create environments and energy is slowed down. Be careful to avoid insensitivity to others
and stay out of negative and pessimistic mind sets that will only drag you down. Take this
moon transit to deal with your material plane, especially if you have neglected it too long.
Do non-traditional healing as Capricorn is the sign of the Medicine Womon. Moon in
Capricorn is the best time to work magick for organization, ambition, recognition, career,.
and political matters. Healing rituals for the knees, bones, teeth, and skin are also done at
this time. Those born under a Capricorn Moon have a strong work ethic, competence, and
leadership capacity, but need to learn to love themselves holding still. These Capricorn Moon
people came here to accomplish and understand compassionate leadership. They may need
to respect other rhythms and to love themselves not just what they do. They offer us
constructive determination and practical support.
Full Moon in Capricorn (Cancer Sun) - At this full moon the goats' horns mirror the ebb
and flow of the moon. An old symbol of the goat was the unicorn - someone in charge of their
own affairs. Rituals may be hard to get off the ground because of all the grounded earth energy,
but they can be a lot of fun once they get going.
