The effects the full moon in Capricorn and Lunar eclipse. July 16th 5:38pm EDT

This full moon can be a very powerful influence on shifting perceptions, restrictions and getting really clear on what you want to achieve for the next 6 months. Not all full moons are created equal. 

Each full moon brings up its share of triggered emotions. Capricorn tends to bring up our judgemental tendencies.

Oh no! A judgemental full moon? Capricorn is the sign of discipline, law and order and determination. It lays down the structure and identifies our status.

The full moon lunar eclipse effects all of the sun signs in slightly different ways. And of course right now, there a some retrogrades that influence things as well. But the focus on this post is on how the full moon in Capricorn will influence us — and how to make the best use of this energy.

The Judgemental Capricorn Moon

The Capricorn  moon can be judgmental. This means that a lot of repressed emotions that we were not aware of will come to the surface. We can choose to use this as an opportunity to let them go — or, we can resist and reinforce them. What do you choose?

How To Let Go of Suppressed Emotional Content

A quick note about releasing suppressed emotional content. This does NOT mean trying to get rid of the feelings or change them. It means allowing them to be. And this also does not mean getting involved in the stories around the feelings. It means refusing to buy in to the stories — and watching/feeling the energy as it flows through your being. The releasing will happen spontaneously as you simply observe the energy that is coming up without becoming identified with it — as best you can. This isn’t about being “perfect.” That’s a subtle trap of the mind coming back in.

A Lunar Eclipse Intensifies This Judgemental Capricorn Influence

With a lunar eclipse the energy is intensified. This means with Capricorn that judgement will be front and centre. How do we judge ourselves? How have others judged us? How do we judge others?  We can use these questions to really dig deeper to find the core limitations that we suppress — that are held in place by judgements. These limitations block our creativity and success. Success of course, is not just about fame and fortune. Success is about being aligned with your dharma (true calling).  Stephen Covey (The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People) calls it being aligned with True North.

The energy of Capricorn moon can make us be very hard on ourselves and as a consequence of this, on others. We will also feel as though we need to control the situation. This is because we feel “out of control.” I have to admit, I’m a little hesitant on writing this as my own insecurities are coming up. Will my readers judge me for making it a bit witchy (I’m not witch per se:-)? Or will they accept this blog post? Will I lose them? This is an example of what it triggered in me. But I’m told by my Spirit guides to share the info with you in hopes that it will support you with whatever you may face during this Capricorn full moon influence.

3 Day Window

In order to take advantage of this Capricorn full moon and dissolve the blocks and restrictions that hold you back, you have a 3 day window. The full moon may be at its peak on the 16th, but it still has the energy and frequency 2 days after. Letting go and forgiving someone or just forgiving the past (even yourself) is crucial to manifesting greater levels of happiness and well being.

Good News! 7 Steps You Can Take To Manifest More of What You Want

The great thing about this transit is that once you’ve cleared some blocks, you have more energy to manifest. Here are some tips on getting in touch with your most personal and private self for manifesting during this full moon influence:

1. Find a time where you will not be disturbed. Your sacred space. 

2. Spiritually cleanse your space. Burn white dessert sage, Palo Santo, incense or diffuse your favourite essential oil.

3. Meditate. Take deep breathes and release any cares or worry of your day or week. Do this for 5 to  10 minutes.

4. Think of person, habit or pattern that you want to release. Write done everything that you don’t like about the person — what they did or a habit/patterns (including smoking and compulsive eating. In this case you would put yourself because this is about forgiving yourself). 

5. Set the intention that you are releasing all that no longer serves you. Then burn it (practice fire safety, make sure what ever you burn it in is fire proof) with the intentions of letting go and clearing all that no longer serves you. I like to burn white dessert sage with herbs (I like to make a real ritual).

Then I like to burry the ashes (beside a tree is my favourite spot). And know this, once it’s gone, it’s gone. 

6. After you’ve completed these steps practice self care – self love rituals like taking a salt bath, using your favourite body butters and essential oils ETC. 

7. Now you’re ready to set intentions of what you would like to manifest in your life. Remember we cannot change the will of another or make someone love and come back into your life. We can only make ourselves open, receptive and loving right now. This will attract whoever is in our highest good.

Most of us have many issues when it comes to getting close to another. Continue being open and trusting as you move forward. The right people will cross your path. Some will be short term and if you’re really fortunate and open to it, someone mutual will want to stick around! Trust what comes through, even if it’s not about manifesting. Maybe you just need to journal and reflect. This is all acceptable. Remember this full moon is about acceptance and letting go of judgments. 

If you need more clarity, the full moon is also the best time to get a reading. Book your session with me. 

Solar Eclipse and New Moon In Cancer

Summer is finally here — July 1st (Canada Day) and the 4th of July festivities!

In July we have a full eclipse and partial lunar eclipse, Mercury retrograde and 2 new moons in one month. July 31’s the new is called a “Black Moon” (we have 2 in one month, depending on where you live)

I know you might be thinking, what does that mean, Mary, how does it effect me and my sign?

Well first of all, the influence will have an effect on all signs. It can be complicated to fully explain why. This post is going to stick to the basics of what you need to know. I wanted to talk about the influences and give you the “medicine” on how use the influence to your advantage. 

Sun In Cancer

We are in emotional Cancer season. The sign of Cancer is all about security, family, home life, emotional awareness and spirituality. 

Wake Up Call

This new moon and solar eclipse in Cancer is truly a wake up call — and there’s no snooze button! 

New moon’s are a good time to plant your seeds of intention — but first you need to do some house cleaning. And I don’t mean actual house work. What ever has been stagnant and stuck in your life can now be shaken up and cleared. 

Mercury go’s retrograde in Leo on July 7th. 

Retrograde simply means a planet appears to be moving backwards in the sky. Mercury rules all forms of communication. And when it goes into retrograde every thing with communication (all electronically devices, communication, phones, travel related details) seem to go a bit haywire. This has the potential to trigger some drama and negative emotions.

Important: Don’t be worried. Why? Nothing can be triggered that ISN’T ALREADY THERE. So another way to look at this is, it’s an opportunity to become more aware of what you didn’t realize was in your subconscious. You can make a choice right now to do your best to face anything with as much understanding and compassion as you can muster. This way, you are using your time here on earth wisely.

Be aware of this transit.

Double check everything before sending off, or any travel details.  If electronic devices or gadgets go funky, just breathe and tell yourself this too shall pass. Don’t let this influence rule your life. It  is ok to purchase electronic devices if you’re replacing a gadget and it’s something that you generally do. If it’s anything new that you’ve never done before, be alert. Better to hold off until Mercury gos direct..

With the sun being in Cancer during these transit, it can influence us emotionally. 

What you need to double check and do during this month.

  1. Connecting with your family. If family are distant (this gos for all people who you feel like family to you) reach out.  If there is any tension, this new moon solar eclipse is an excellent time to soften it! If communication is not possible, then just work on forgiveness. 
  2. Dissolving low self worth and fear. We sometimes talk ourselves out of things out of fear and doubt. We make up a story as to why we cannot or why we shouldn’t take a risk. This is partly out of protection of fear of failure/rejection, but also because we over identify with thoughts and concepts in our heads. In other words, we aren’t fully present to what is actually here. For example, how do you know it will fail if you haven’t tried? As Master Yoda put it “there is no try only do.” My suggestion is to do one little thing that scares you. For me it’s siting outside on my patio as I type this (we just moved here a few months ago and this is my first sitting out) with these large black wasps (I have a neurotic wasp phobia). 

3. Getting out into nature. Nothing like being out in the great outdoors to feel good! Nature is a powerful aid and support with quieting the chatter in our minds and allowing us to see the beauty that is shining through.

4. During this new moon, make time for yourself. Burn some candles, take a nice hot salt bath and meditate. Get creative. I like to put aromatherapy oils and crystals in my bath. Putting a crystal in your bath is just a super intense experience. It charges and heightens your bath water. Try it.

5. Journaling and writing down your goals. Keep writing ideas, observations, progress and any uplifting insights you may have. This will help you stay aware, focused and sharp. You can also revisit it  from time to time in order to find inspiration when you need it .

The Art of Listening 

Getting creative and practicing self-care rituals is the key. Take your time to really listen to someone when they speak. It’s more important than ever to be a good listener during these transits. There is a fine balance between being humble as a leader and listening first. Truly listening. Seek to understand before you seek to be understood. And then we are ready to use our courage to speak our own ideas.

Mercury retrograde is actually the Universe’s way for us to slow down and create some white space in our lives. 

There is nothing to fear with the transits of the planets. Most people are not taking responsibility and looking to blame someone or the planets. Yes they have an effect on us but this is actually a good thing. 

Blame is simply another illusion created by the mind. But that will be another article another time.
