Cosmic Weather: Full “Thunder” Moon in Capricorn: Ambition, Security and Freedom

Hello friends. As of this writing, what a challenging week it’s been, especially for the Empath/Sensitives. Hard Eris/Uranus aspects lately have seemed to have had severe consequences. All love and support to Nice, Istanbul and Orlando, for devastating recent losses.

This Full Moon comes on the tail of two rather intense weeks in the Cosmic Weather, filled with shifts and changes. We also have the lovely Grand Trine in Water supporting deep healing and changes to our psychological landscape. We have Mercury and Venus now up from Cancerian depths and into sunny, regal Leo. The Sun will also move into Leo after this Full Moon on 7/22, which will shift up the vibe from being so intently inward and self-focused to more celebratory and social. We can use it. For some, it will feel like this Summer is finally getting started.

The juxtaposition of Cancer and Capricorn energies are not exactly light and breezy, but are very useful. They are both Cardinal energies that can pack a cosmic punch. Historically, the Full Moon of July is rarely an uneventful one. Another name for this Full Moon is the “Blessing” moon, as it relates with public recognition and the advancement of goals. Capricorn is known for its (sometimes ruthless) ambition and frankly, we could use some up in here. Especially the ambition to keep ourselves at our optimum health and balance so we can continue to serve others. This is a goal and an intention that the Universe simply loves to support, but we must do our part as well.

As predicted at the start of the year, it’s been a violent and dark Summer. On the other hand, the movement of the cosmically conscious “Shift” has never been stronger. In 3D for now anyway, that’s how things seem to play out. I know speaking for many of us, we could certainly use a bit of wind back in our sails.

The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon is “An aviary.”

Interestingly, an aviary is a structure to house birds. They are not flying free in the wild, but they are also protected. There’s certainly a lot going on with that metaphor, isn’t there? 🙂 In what ways do we let ourselves fly freely and where do we hold ourselves back? Where do issues of personal security keep us in a cage, albeit a spacious or comfortable one? Some structures are useful and some are outdated and outgrown. From what it has shown me already, this moon will highlight some of that.

So how can you help? Maintain your own loving frequency. Vibrate higher. Chose love over fear. Despite outer appearances of late, the light of love is transforming the world. There is great support in this for you. Shanti. – The Keepers, 7.14.16

Who better than (Capricorn) David Bowie who knew all about disappointments, naysayers and holding a vision to its ultimate success to sing to us? He reminds us that fortunately, there are still more (and possibly better) roads to be traveled. This year for many has been deep, difficult and downright painful; but it’s also not the end of the story.

Now your smile is spreading thin. Seems you’re trying not to lose. Since I’m not supposed to grin, all you’ve got to do is win. It ain’t over. – Bowie, 1975

Happy Full Moon friends and remember to keep it Cosmic!
