Full moon in Capricorn

A full moon in Capricorn will take place on Monday July 19th, 2016 at 6:57 pm EST at 27 degrees Capricorn. When the moon is full in Capricorn we are asked to assess our burdens. Our burden of responsibility, of work, and ask are we being appreciated for what we do? Is this dedication being reciprocated?

The goat glyph given to the Capricorn is given to them because the dutiful goat keeps climbing that hill despite obstacles. A new person joins a caravan traveling up a mountain, tossing their baggage onto the goats back, yet the goat keeps going. More and more people join, adding more and more baggage, and the goat keeps going without fuss.

Like the goats in the featured picture, we can become encumbered by excess baggage. Taking on responsibilities we know we can’t handle because we believe it is our duty to other people to do so. Some people don’t think their life has purpose if it is not working for someone else, being bound by duty in order to feel useful. It’s time to go back over these duties, and ask yourself if you’re doing what you’re doing out of underlying guilt, or because you want to. That is the key here. When you identify what is done out of guilt vs what is done out of want is when you will free yourself from Saturn’s burden.

 

Notable Aspects

This full moon is a big one in terms of aspects. A powerful cardinal t-square will form pointing towards Uranus in Aries (Lone wolf) from the Sun in Cancer to the moon in Capricorn. This type of friction pointed at Uranus could prove to be explosive in terms of world events. In the past few weeks there have been many international geopolitical events taking place and we will likely see something big transpire on the 19th or soon after.

Ritual

On the 1st or 2nd night of the full moon, assess and write down what you believe are burdens that have been unduly placed on your shoulders. Write these down on a piece of paper in list form. Burn this list into ashes in order to purify and release these burdens from your consciousness.

Get into the habit of checking yourself when others ask you to do things for them, saying no is ok.
