Ready, set, build! Sunday’s full moon is in structured Capricorn, the sign of long-term goals and plans. Capricorn is ruled by stern Saturn, who’s all about paying dues and mapping out a sustainable future—one built on a firm foundation.
Look back to January 11, 2013, the corresponding Capricorn new moon. This full moon is the culmination of what you’ve been working on since then. Consider this a midyear integrity check for your New Year’s resolutions. Have you put in the sweat equity to reap the rewards for your hard work? This full moon will tell. The full moon shines its inspector’s highbeams on your life, revealing where you may have cut corners or skipped steps.
Meantime, here’s how you can benefit from this full moon (which some are calling a “supermoon” because it’s especially close to the earth):
Become the architect of your desires.
Be honest: Do your big desires fall in the “pipe dream” realm or are you take concrete steps to actualize them? No, you don’t need to have everything planned down to the detail, but all strong structures begin with a blueprint. Go back to your drafting board and sketch out some action items and identify some milestones to mark progress. If you’re serious about starting or expanding a venture, you might invest in a Silver Lining Action Plan (SLAP)—a very clean, one-year structure for your business that we’ve implemented with great success (http://silverlininglimited.com/slap). If it’s true love you want, pick up Katherine Woodward Thomas’ workbook Calling In “The One”: 7 Weeks to Attract the Love of Your Life.
We’re all for creative visualization and the Law of Attraction. However, the fine art of “manifesting” (such a buzzword that’s become) pairs well with personal responsibility. Or, as the saying goes: luck is where preparation and opportunity meet. The Capricorn full moon says, do the work!
Earthy, stoic Capricorn is not a braggart. This sign lets its accomplishments speak for themselves. At today’s full moon, practice the forgotten art of restraint. Yes, we live in an era of self-promotion, where barely anything is left to the imagination—from your colleague’s kale salad to the Valencia-filtered weekend of the century that (yep) you missed out on. Does anyone else out there want to say, “Enough already!” In business negotiations, the less you say, the more you gain. At the Capricorn full moon, be discriminating about what you share. The power of mystique is mighty. For a fascinating treatise on “the power of introverts” check out this TED talk (http://www.ted.com/talks/susan_cain_the_power_of_introverts.html) by Susan Cain, author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Won’t Stop Talking (http://astore.amazon.com/astrostyle-20/detail/0307352153).
Who’s your daddy?
Capricorn rules the zodiac’s tenth house of men, fathers and masculinity. Father’s Day might have been a week ago, but it’s not too late to pay tribute to your dad. If that’s a complicated relationship, perhaps you just want to get some illumination on the thornier dynamics that might still haunt you. (Recommended reading for that: Radical Forgiveness by Colin Tipping, which is one of our go-to healing guides.) Get in touch with your own masculine energy. We are all a balance of the feminine/masculine polarities, regardless of sex. How can you express this—or bring it into harmony—within yourself?
