Current Lunar Cycle
The Full Moon illuminates and activates new awareness, especially corresponding to whatever was released with the manifesting wave of New Moon energy two weeks ago. In the coming two weeks look for ways to celebrate and take inspired action, especially from whatever you have embraced or experienced since the New Moon. Be patient with challenges that emerge in the coming days, recognizing that they are also a necessary part of your expansion.
Full Moon Astrology Article: Trusting Your Process
This Full Moon will bring illumination and activate a new sense of clarity, especially regarding any issues, challenges, projects, or opportunities you are currently working through. In the coming two weeks there is also the potential for a new sense of personal empowerment, fueling your inner stability and nurturing your effective use of power in the world.
During the week following the Full Moon, a tremendous amount of energy will be building. This isn’t something to fear. Although you may be experiencing emotional intensity, it’s important to understand that this build-up of energy plays a necessary role in the larger scheme of things to come. The Capricorn Moon will support your ability to move through emotional intensity and navigate circumstances with trust and confidence.
This buildup of energies is leading to the potential for breakthrough. In about a week, the Moon will pass over (transit) the planet Uranus. Uranus offers the power to break free of limitation to pursue greater success. This coming Moon-Uranus conjunction will direct this week’s build up of energy toward something useful.
It is important now for you to trust whatever process was started at the New Moon. Even if things feel emotionally difficult or confusing, there is mental clarity available to help you move forward in life in the most positive way possible. This is a natural clarity that you can rely on. This clear awareness will counteract any emotional confusion or instability that may emerge.
There is a practicality with this Capricorn Moon that will support you if you can trust in the process.
Astrology Pattern: Extra Power for Maximum Results
The two planets most capable of providing maximum power are Mars and Pluto, and they both play key roles in the current Full Moon. With Mars conjunct the Sun, and Pluto conjunct the Moon, this Full Moon is infused with the power of change. On the personal level, be aware that whatever circumstances or issues in your life are requiring maximum effort can be transformed through this potential for change.
Uranus is in a key position to express this buildup of power and support the release of pressure. On the personal level, Uranus can help you achieve maximum potential by providing a breakthrough, supporting the release of old and out-dated patterns in your life.
There is a shadow side to this Full Moon. The result of all of this power build-up could be the experience of mayhem or chaos, especially if the proper expression isn’t understood. The shadow aspect will show up in the tendency to respond to the pressure (stress) from an unconscious or immature emotional reaction. There may be immediate relief in the release of pent-up energy, but the opportunity for constructive expansion will be missed.
Understanding the purpose of this Full Moon astrology pattern is the key to avoiding the chaotic activation that’s possible with the unconscious use of all this power. By accessing mental clarity, this pattern can be used for the directed expression of power to achieve the results you desire.
This is an intense Full Moon. It’s important in the coming days to nurture yourself and stay grounded and emotionally centered. Keep in mind that this build-up of energy must be used constructively or it could contribute to disorder. The shadow side will want to indiscriminately explode as a way to relieve a build-up of emotional pressure. Use your mental clarity to see where to direct your energy, and this powerful build-up can be directed toward making a positive difference in your life.
The amount of energy available for personal transformation is perfectly aligned now for a breakthrough. The key is to remember to trust the process and move forward with your sights set on your long-term intentions. This isn’t the time to spontaneously combust, just because it satisfies the need for temporary relief. Put your energies toward the future and trust that you’re headed in the right direction.
