The Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn
This full moon comes with a promise of showing us some truths and releasing what’s standing in the way of our own process.
Our own process of how we nurture, create, love, and build.
How we make things and move through the world.
This full moon is within a three degree orb of Pluto, which is retrograde, and so things from the past may be flooding your dreams and even your waking life.
Capricorn is about work, what we build and produce.
Cancer is about home, nurturing, self care, and comfort.
Astrology shows us that everything in opposition has similiarities and also requires one another for a healthy expression of each.
With Cancer and Capricorn, we have to acknowledge that we cannot produce the work we want if we are not comfortable, cared for, and have a sense of security.
If we want to do work that matters, it has to come from a place of wholeness and care.
As cliche as it may be, we cannot give from an empty vessel.
The only way we can have quality output is if we also are offering ourselves quality input. For many of us, it’s not enough that we simply care for ourselves, we have to actually mother ourselves, and Capricorn energy can sometimes make us feel that this is the last thing we need. Cancer is here to remind us that care is everything. Do you feel sad? Isolated? Overworked? Heavy? Capricorn's got you down. Focus on using your strengths to build, and provide yourself what you NEED to be at your peak, and you'll turn that right around.
This full moon is a time to fully see yourself, truly, letting go of what stands in the way of your process.
Remember that your process is how you create, how you make things happen and facilitate change in your life. Even if you’re not a “creative type” - you still have a process.
Understanding where this eclipse is lighting up your birth chart will help you to understand what area of your life is feeling it's effect. Also, if you are able to reflect back on what was happening in your life around January of 2010, this should also shed some light. The last time we had a Capricorn Lunar Eclipse around 24 degrees was January 15, 2010, so similar themes will likely come up.
Affirmation for this full moon:
I build my life and create with care, love, and attention to my soul.
Questions for reflection:
Where do I feel heaviness in my life?
Do I feel isolated in my work? Keep in mind that if you work solo and love it, this is just fine. But if you love your work and feel lonely, this is the Universe showing you that you need more socializing and connection.
How does my work and family/friends life align with my needs and my interests?
What feels sad, heavy, or old within me right now? What can I do to let go of it?*
With all of these questions, I think it's helpful to just free write / journal, and not think about it too much because this is the easiest way to access the subconscious. A lot of what's asking to be released with this eclipse is old stuff, you may have to do a little digging, and a little sitting with discomfort to get to the root of it.
Lots of Love to you,
