Full Moon in Capricorn July 2017
On July 8th, 2017, the moon waxes into full expansion of the Full Moon. At her peak of fullness and life bearing energy, she aligns in the sign of Capricorn.
Some astrologers are calling this one of the most powerful moons in years.
The alignment of the moon and other planets has created a vortex, if you will, of change. Some are predicting that crime and emotional triggers will be high this weekend just a few days after the 4th of July in the United States.
I believe that what we think is what becomes truth and so I do not agree that this moon phase will bring out in others an ugly side. Rather, I think this is a pretty key time for shadow work.
Shadow work is when we look at ourselves without judgement and recognize the parts of ourselves that need support. Some might call these things downfalls or triggers. Normally shadow work is completed around the New Moon, but this Capricorn pull and the intensity in the air makes this a perfect space to look at your shadows.
What are you willing to shift in your life to stand in your greatness?
We all have magic in our bones. Our dreams and intuitive pulls are undeniable, but sometimes we have traits that do hold us back from fully shining our light.
For me personally, I really easily slip back into a victim mentality. I can feel so empowered, so beautiful and so in alignment and then something will go very wrong and I have to face my fears of inadequacy. It's easy for me to say "oh poor me." But of course this pulls me from my powerful path of truth. Simply being aware of what tends to hold you back and affirming to shift that is the most important step.
With this Full Moon, we are being asked to shine our light despite what goes on around us. Watch the news for more than 20 minutes and you will probably feel depressed and hopeless. There is a lot of chaos in the world but that does not mean that we should give up. This is the perfect time for light workers like ourselves to hold space, shift the group thought and to be the heart of compassion.
Sister, what are you stepping into with this Full Moon?
What are you meant to embody?
Can you transcend the violence, the hatred and the wounds of the world and choose to be the source of peace?
As you lovingly peer into your shadow self, you might ask yourself what you can do to shift it. What do you need to be an even more aligned human being? For many of us, something as simple as self care can realign us. For others of us, it may be a process of healing.
As the moon illuminates the earth, as does she illuminate you.
