New Moon: 26 Capricorn 54

CypNMcapJan17
Base Camp

So here we are at this much celebrated new moon in the sign of concrete, material gains. In 2018, Capricorn seeks the Ego’s proof of place in a rapidly changing world. I like to think of us as climbers milling around base camp, peering over our sketchy maps of the terrain above, making friends with the guides and listening with rapt attention as they offer their take on upcoming weather and trail conditions.

Base camp feels intense; there’s excitement in the air yet a prickly sense that you can’t go back. Sometimes the sun shines brilliantly over the mountain side but ominous clouds and icey winds pass, too. The guides admit that nothing is certain but that the trek is a ‘go’… We might feel very small at moments but also revel in our sturdy boots and whatever hi-tech clothing and equipment we’ve managed to assemble.

There are six archetypes trekking through Capricorn and all of them rule a house (set of themes) in your wheel. Significantly, one of them is Saturn – the Best Guide in these here parts. His influence and agenda take second place to none and his first order of business is to make clear that he dictates when you leave base camp. Each of us have unique matters (theme set/s) to attend to before we can hit a vertical stride.

From Capricorn, I learned to step up and take responsibility; learned poise and accountability; learned, when the time came, to be a leader.  – A. E. Kent (source)

On The Value of Connected Outcome

Capricorn is the sign of leadership and, though not nearly as often mentioned, all the work that goes into becoming one worthy to lead. We often think of leadership in terms of Those Above Us in groups, in corporations/our own place of work, in our religious center, local council, PTA but what if we expand upon the meaning and bring this quality right into our own mind-body space. What if we took the lead with all the chattering in our head, in charting out the pros and cons of a course change, in deciding when enough is enough or that it is not yet time to rest.

What if we make a decision that, right here and now, (this) is my perception of What Is and based upon that perception, I draw a symbolic line on the ground. Today, on (this) side of the line, I confine myself, I enclose myself in a space of cool appraisal and ponder which goal-wish or two has the best chance of concrete advancement. What needs to be repaired, what’s ready to go, what’s too heavy to carry by myself, what’s essential to success? And I lead. I lead me, my head space and my energy flow in stepping over that line.

One thing is certain: we aren’t supposed to feel like we are in this alone, except in rare cases. For some, this is about team work in getting to a specific summit. For just about everyone, this signifies the great treasures to be found in a support system. The value of connected outcomes, regardless of market place niche or life role played, are made plain.

There is an invitation for ALL of us in these days to look deeply into the quality and quantity of our exchanges with others, particularly those based on high levels of faith and trust that seem to have crept in under the radar. Insights expand awareness and create tremendous opportunities for us to refill our soul-cups and quench our thirst if we will to take the initiative. Do try to avoid the proverbial hiccups that can come from gulping too quickly. 😉 From initiative point to quenching point, it’s got to be a co-determined pace.

Sending new moon wishes for Self leadership,

weaver

Full Moon: 13 Pisces 53

FMCyprus6Sep17

 

…WHOOSH…

Generally speaking, a full moon brings revelation, culmination, closure to an issue within the themes of the house wherein it occurs. A fuller, deeper reflection of the state of affairs (moon) is presented to the individual (sun) who then makes the appropriate adjustments and changes. For those with natal placements in proximity of a full moon, it’s all clear as a bell; the writing is on the wall*. The next step is obvious. Yet here we have a full moon in Pisces, conjunct the ruler of Pisces, Neptune, for a maximum dose of whatever the zeitgeist is exhaling. Neptune seeps beneath our radar most of the time. To fully grasp the significance of this full moon, check out some thoughts on the Sea God here and particularly here. The rest of this post should then make more sense.

Ideally, this full moon speaks to a thorough cleansing; of conscious awareness meeting itself in the Great Mysteries and returning with earth-realm tech support. If you can visualise a co-creative plan around these images, you walk on sometimes difficult but holy ground. Flow forth.

The very best generalised thing I can say about this span of days is that it may well allow the majority of us to break free from the undertow of eclipse season. A culmination of personal side effects on the more physical levels of life, so to speak (like, could I start finding my bearings again?!). This much uncontained water can push us floating off again. Frankly, I think a good whoosh is preferable to the endless whirl I have been in lately. By Sunday, may ‘the waters’ recede.

With the moon in Pisces, in Neptune’s borderless lap, the only thing worth keeping in mind is the GRACE that you have enjoyed thus far in life, the blessings/good fortunes that have come to you through no conscious earning on your own part. The most simple kinds of truth are the only ones that count. Kindness with no strings attached. On this humble, broad bandwidth we can venture forth in faith.

Emotional overload – plummeting or soaring – is possible. I am counseling on hitting the pause button when it comes to acting out on any drama that arises with Others. If at all possible, contemplate the opposing perspective after some rest with the aim of best outcome for all. There is a sextile to Pluto in Capricorn, however, a lot of good a bridge does you if you can’t see for certain where to step on! With that said, …
If, within your circumstance, you feel confident and at peace about ‘a way across’ that you see, by all means Go For It.

You can get a bit more traction with the sun; it is trining Pluto: any thoughts, intentions and actions rooted in the common good are blessed and approved by the Recycling King as good building stock – that means you will see real-world results in due time. There is great potential here for increasing your antifragility status (you can find out more about that here). I just saw a quote yesterday in an immigration office, of all places, that seems perfect for this moment,

‘If you are busy judging people, you have no time to love them.’ – Mother Teresa.

Perhaps it is useful to remember that ‘loving’ in this sense can mean being in a state of acceptance of an Other’s composite existence. Just start there and yes, expect miracles. They are somewhat common when you are looking for them and these are particularly magical times!

Full Moon: 17 Capricorn 9′

That the outer space is dark, as opposed to our sky, is because there is no air or matter to reflect the light. In fact, the empty space is filled with visible light. We cannot see it because light, Intelligible or worldly, is the dark revealer: It only manifests the face of the Other and not Its own.  – Tomajj (source)

 

Full Moon: 17 Capricorn 9′

A full moon is a welling up to the brim. How deep the well source is from life’s surface events will determine how easy it is to connect the dots between what’s happening in your reality and what’s causing it. This is particularly of concern with a full moon in Capricorn; this sign prefers to curb its focus towards production and on-time delivery according to contract. Still, there’s cause to believe root issues may be maintaining their link to surface ruptures…

The recent new moon in Cancer had our strength of will marching forth for a greater sense of security. We soon experienced an episode involving someone or something far more entrenched and immovable than our will could conquer. Acting on the sense to just step a few paces to the right or left, in deference or support, was clearly the most pro-active thing to do. And we will not forget what we’ve become conscious of since that steamy parade of feelings passed through us. Our thoughts and mindset are still on these matters. We have a better lock on some facet of our needs – and now hold an upgraded edition of the map of the near-terrain. Score.

 

There’s also the fact that Pluto has been in Capricorn for years now and crested the half-way point. Deep mining, earthquakes, breaches of structural integrity in the mind/body/spirit, lessons in heavy equipment operation, the floor falling away from underneath, alone-ness in promotion/the top corner office/retirement are a few descriptors. Now we know what’s Real and what is fluff. Now we are getting serious. There’s very little left circling the drain. Another score.
Soon Now its time to find the plug, put it back in and start to refill our tub. The warmth of Generous Spirit and the Creative Muse beckon us to insist that we can BE even amidst and even in spite of the rubble.
cap FM cyp 9jul17The ruler of the full moon is Saturn, retrograde at 22 50’ Sagittarius: The Teacher is trining, off and on in a longer cycle, the archetype of the Sky is the Limit in Aries, the Individual. Stay open to the effortless flow of affirmations on tap from your Inner Mindscape; cognition generally lags but the download is in progress. The Teacher is also holding a few supplementary new term classes, open to everyone, in rooms currently held by the north node in Leo: strive this way! Sit up and take note of where and how you are learning about your strengths, your skills. Who are your trustworthy critics? Who wants to see you succeed? A support system is prime for forming if you don’t skip class.

As with all full moons intimately held within Pluto’s grip, we know we need to take some caution in our daily life. Avoid haste in all things. You may have your baggage sorted or at least well-latched but others may not. Just about every one of us can be triggered. Be ready to breathe through urges, save your fire for your own productive use.

Capricorn strives for permanence, Pluto is transformational: expect events to explain/define the state of affairs within one of your power-bonds with Others that directly affects your abilities to gain sustenance. If you have natal markers within range, you will feel Power moving into delicious alignment with your success – or – you can expect these affairs will now undergo a process of transformation that must occur in order for your feet to find solid ground again.

For some, this will be a rough patch with genuine fears and concerns – please, try to remember to practice only giving your attention to Now: the needs and issues of this moment only. In no way does soaking in anxiety about future moments aid you in meeting those moments when they arrive. I do realize that this is easier said than done. And relief…I believe there is a sliver, at least, of relief. Try to articulate and celebrate each and every positive truth you carry with you. Know that you are not alone in your experiences.

There will be very few who can say they really didn’t see this coming. Its Time…time to discover a whole new world of realities you didn’t have space for before.
The blessings of true wealth to you,
– weaver
