As I write this new post for Cosmic Leaping I find myself wondering how many of you actually desire the truth. Dear ones, it is time to open your eyes and see what is happening in the world as the powerful Full Moon in Capricorn comes to you. As I have often said, nothing is as it seems. There is a hidden revolution going on and you are seeing the chaos that comes from it. The ongoing struggle between the old matrix ways in which we have been trapped for centuries is now on the way out. Those who have created this are hanging on in any way to continue to control and bombard you in any way they can. A whirlwind of negativity from the mainstream media surrounds you every day by keeping you from inspiration and knowing who you are. Think about it. How many of you have become lethargic? Or have you become complacent? What really interests you? Is it just the materialistic side of life itself? Step back and allow the truth to unfold within you. Many of you will say that this is bunk and it is this or that is causing this chaos. What you think is what you create! So if you are constantly watching the downside in the news and taking part in the drama around you, whether family or business associates or otherwise then guess what? Your life becomes stuck and you have no idea who you really are. You may wish to choose differently. Let this Full Moon help you purge out much of the past junk that is still hanging on. And see how differently your life shows up.
What influences does this Full Moon in Capricorn carry to you? It arrives Tuesday, July 19, 2016 at 6:56pm EDT, 3:56pm PDT and 10:56pm GMT at 27degrees 40’. The Sun is in Cancer at 27degrees 40’. Since the New Moon in Cancer just occurred it revolved around family, needs and various intimacies of feelings. The Full Moon in Capricorn brings to the picture the outer complexities and restraints that come in this 3D world. Capricorn has always been more patriarchal and masculine. The entire month has been leading up to this Full Moon. It is a time for recognizing what needs adjustment in your life. It is about the inner needs of Cancer Sun and the outer needs of the Capricorn moon. The key is to balance them. The Full Moon lights up where the balance is needed. It is about getting rid of any relationship, situation or unhealthy habit that has overstayed its visit. And you say how can you do this. Why not through meditation, prayer or just doing what makes you feel peaceful and calm? Keep in mind that sometimes fate takes part in it or you can make the choice. If you choose to let something go—purge your life of whatever it may be—do it in a calm and peaceful way since the Full Moon is squaring (in conflict) with Uranus in Aries which makes it an unexpected type energy.
Since Uranus in Aries is a big part of this Full Moon in Capricorn energy there is a tendency to go off the deep end in plain terms. So depending where it falls in your natal chart will tell you exactly what area is affected. How many of you have let go of the past that no longer serves you? Uranus cuts to the chase and says hey, if it isn’t working and it has been there way too long, out it goes. Done! So know that it will take something away if it no longer is needed by you. I suggest you do it yourself, dear ones, so Uranus can just sweep the remains out the door. What do you say?
The shadow side may come to the forefront this week for some of you. Don’t be rankled? And depressed feeling may overtake you. Stop them. Face up to your fears and notice them. Watch your words also for they can start a disagreement which will turn ugly. Some may have a feeling of lack. Keep your thoughts on abundance throughout the next couple of weeks. Yes, you are a money magnet. Remember that. Work on yourself too not just pleasing others. That old habit has to go. Release it.
The Full Moon in Capricorn is sextile both Mars in Scorpio and Chiron in Pisces. So the Sun in Cancer is in a grand trine with Mars and Chiron which is exact today July 17. Since this is part of the Full Moon energy it says to slow down, regroup and recreate yourself to listening to your higher self. It is also a good time to focus energies on healing and it also may open the door to releasing anything that has kept you in a stagnant state.
Other aspects happening with this Full Moon in Capricorn are Mercury and Venus in Leo trine Saturn in Sagittarius. Mercury trine Saturn brings to you a logical approach to figuring out your next move in whatever creative project you are working on. It is helping you get from where you are to the next step of your goal. Also Venus and Saturn are both quincunx (need adjusting) to Neptune In Pisces which tells you to let your heart lead the way, not your head. And the Sun in aspect to Neptune is saying a leap of faith may be needed. Uranus is going station retrograde on the 29th (more about that closer to the time). It may indicate breaking free from something in your life.
For those born in the Cardinal signs –Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn -from April 14-April 20; July 16-July 22; October 16-October 22; and January 14-January 20 will be more intensely affected and if you have rising signs in the later degrees of these signs then you too will have more intense energy.
From the Animal Cards–Otter has appeared and says that it is good to let things unfold in your life. “Focus on all of the wonderful things that surround you right now. Use this this magic to help you let go of all the stress in your life. Joy is found in the little things.” -Otter
Some tidbits for the Sun signs and rising signs-
Aries- Frustrations between work and home about outer world ambitions and inner securities.
Taurus-Something comes into play that may instigate change and inspires you onward.
Gemini- Great time the next few weeks to firm up some financial matters. Good stuff.

Happy Full Moon to you! Remember the energy lasts for a few weeks and it is time to really let go as you make plans to regenerate and find balance. There is a lot more that I will be talking about on SGN Going Beyond Astrology http://www.spiritualbistro.com/sgn-on-air.html at 9pm EDT Tuesday July 19. Hope you can tune in. You never know what other things may be discussed. The upcoming new moon is on August 2. See you then back here. Thank you for all you do and are. Until again. Love, Jan
The New Moon is just about upon you. Is it passion or power struggles? Is motherly love or family tensions? What is changing for you? Is there a turning point coming into your life? You tell me. This New Moon is about the feminine side and its integration.
Is it really July? What happened to June? That certainly flew by or else I just was not paying attention. Did you feel that too? There have been lots of interesting things going on especially the Brexit referendum. So England has left the European Union. What do you think? The grand square was on the bank’s natal moon/.Uranus during the preliminary phase. Is it just about getting England’s borders back, if so, will it actually happen? I think the United States needs to get its borders back but then again I am not going there right now. Oh, this is great I just saw that Pepsi is now going back to using Aspartame in their diet sodas due to loss of sales. Who is drinking this crap? It is so bad for you I cannot even start to describe the negative effects which it has. And Mrs. Clinton apparently is meeting with the FBI this weekend. One more thing—for those who collect Social Security don’t expect a cost of living raise more than 0.2% in 2017. What a joke. So onward to the New Moon we go.
The New Moon in Cancer arrives on Monday, July 4, 2016 at 7:00am EDT, 4:00am PDT and 11:00am GMT in 12 degrees 53’. The Sun is also at the same degree in the sign Cancer. What do you know about the sign Cancer? It is also called Moonchild since it is ruled by the Moon. It is truly about the feminine receptive principle. It is about the yin/yang within. Everyone has both a feminine and masculine side. The feminine is about passion, strength and creativity. The male side is protection, devotion and support. A New Moon in Cancer on July 4 reminds us of what’s really important — family and a sense of comfort. Do something to honor your need for emotional security. Since Cancer loves the nostalgic thing it is not time to look back anymore.
Looking at the planets as they sit with this New Moon- Pluto is opposing the Moon/Sun. Pluto may throw a bit of a knock on the head because it wants things to change and you better know that it will create that change if you are in its way. So I say go with it. Pluto opposing this New Moon is saying to you to purge out all the unnecessary tensions which have been hanging out in your life and let it go. The past is gone. Move on. But, you say to yourself that you don’t want to forget the wounds and on and on you go. Please. This is a big opportunity. Go beyond the norm of hanging on to those issues that no longer matter. Stop. Take a big breath. And go through that door that Pluto has opened. See the difference.
Not only is the New Moon/Sun in a water sign but so are Venus which is in Cancer; Mercury in Cancer; Mars in Scorpio; Neptune in Pisces. Chiron also is in Pisces. From June 30-July 22 there is a grand trine between Venus, then Mercury then the Sun with Mars and Chiron. This tells you that it is time to go within and forget the materialism at the moment. Now is when you can open your heart and heal/close old wounds. Also, it is a time to clear up misunderstandings. Will your ego allow yourself to do this? Reach within for the warmth of your heart and soul and let the introspective part play a higher role in your life right now so these things can take place. Make peace not war as July moves forward and the New Moon energy takes you easily along. But you need to act too!!! Remember that!!!
Saturn in Sagittarius is square Neptune in Pisces and what does it mean for you? It has been ongoing since 2015 and continues on like that until the end of this year. It is about our dreams and coming up with a plan of action. Well, that certainly sounds familiar. Since Neptune is sextile Pluto in Capricorn then it is saying are you ready to manifest what you desire? It is really about taking the time to rework your life so that you can pursue that which you are most passionate. If you have limitations in your life now is a good time to release them as the month goes forward. Sun/Moon is trine Neptune in Pisces and this can bring you into dreamland in a big way. This will help you be inspired.
Venus is opposing Pluto also and was exact on June 30. It is a time to look at the shadows in your life and how you are projecting them on others. These things I refer to are power games, manipulation, obsessions and hidden agendas. Maybe you may wish to transform your fear too!! There is a win-win situation if you are willing to be honest with yourself and create empowerment. This opposition deals with relationships, finances, resources and your values. Venus opposing Pluto can set the stage for very passionate love affairs.
Jupiter in Virgo trine Pluto in Capricorn says there is good luck in both professional and personal affairs for the month so open your eyes and heart to allow the growth to take place. It can be career advancement or personal achievement depending on where it is in your chart. Any work you do with integrity is going to be most beneficial to you.
