*This is number three of a four part series on lunation cycles.
The full moon occurs when the Sun and Moon are in opposite signs.
This month the Sun is in Cancer (in Western astrology), and the Full Moon is in the sign of Capricorn. This occurs in an overall Fire element in the northern hemisphere, and an Earth element south of the equator.
So for us folks in the northern hemisphere, we have an Earth sign Full Moon in a Water sun sign, occurring in an overall Fire element. For you southern folks, you have an Earth Full Moon in a Water sign (Cancer) in an overall element of Earth.
Starting to see how this works?
Northern: We continue to clear emotional energies (Cancer/Water) for manifestation (Earth).
Southern: A double dose of Earth in a Water sign. Feeling heavy?
(I will be traveling on this Full Moon.)
The Full Moon on July 12 occurs at 7:26 AM EDT, which is 5:26 AM in Guatemala. The theme is following your “soul purpose.” Use the time between now and then to redefine what that is for you. The Full Moon is a time of high energies, high tides and in the old days, what they called lunacy. The Full Moon breaks impasses. This waxing lunar phase may have shown us what we need to further let go of (release) to achieve our soul purpose. That will show in full during this waning lunar phase. Any Full Moon shows a release of energy; everything is revealed as another cycle is completed. In our lives the Full Moon has the same effect. All that has been building up over the past few weeks is brought out into the open for us to experience.
This and the next two (three total) Full Moons are Super Moons. The Full Moon on 12 July 2014 will be the first of the three full Super Moons this year. The next Super Moon will be the closest of the year, occurring on 10 August, 2014, and the last Super Moon for 2014 will be on 9 September 2014.
The Full Moon, of course, occurs on Saturday morning. This Full Moon takes place at 21 degrees Capricorn, bringing Saturn and his station front and center. This should give some important definition to the Cardinal Cross energies that have dominated the year.
This is a time of illumination, with special focus on vocation/career, family/roots. This Full Moon also occurs on 13 Qanil (Seed) on the Maya calendar, so it will be especially powerful. Plant those seeds, use the energy wisely, remain calm.
Full Moon Blessings to All! I will not be posting on Monday as I will be out on an adventure.
