Full Moon in Capricorn on June 27th/28th 2018 comes as a great (albeit challenging) teacher, here to guide us through a karmic awakening. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet of structure, time + hard lessons. This energy is strong right now - as Saturn not only rules our Capricorn Moon, but sits right next to it. It can be a cold + austere presence, illuminating areas of life we may be lost, disempowered or stagnant. These energies can be heavy + feelings of fatigue, depression + isolation are likely under this lunation – but trust these valleys are here to teach us + inspire profound growth.
There’s always a karmic element to our personal experience with Saturn – it illuminates where we feel a fated sense of lacking, often carried over from lifetimes past (making the wound that much deeper). But Saturn is also where we have the most potential to grow + flourish, if we alchemize the wounding into powerful drive. Yes, Saturn is a planet of tough love + karma’s a b*tch – but if we identify + work with the challenges of this lunation, they’ll become stepping stones toward our next level of living consciousness. It touches on our soul's journey and fate vs free will - because how we choose to recognize + work with Saturn indicates the timeline of our lives. Saturn's lessons must always be learned + they'll keep coming back until we pay attention. As Pema Chodron says, "nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know."
We have a lot of big planets retrograde, including Saturn, so there’s a sluggish energy amidst all this karmic work – it could feel like a fog, like we’re living between worlds or like we’re taking backward steps. But it’s more of a one step back to take two steps forward. We’re revisiting unfinished work + seeing the remnants + final layers of things that need to come up. These deep layers can be the most shocking, so remember to stay grounded + firm in your truth as you face what comes up + bravely release.
We’re fluctuating within our own God-self - cleaning up + exploring our underworld + being tested by our selves. This Moon reminds us we’re all artists + creators of our own reality + karma comes as a teacher, as a beautiful system to experience ourselves as the gods + goddesses we are. Take time for quiet reflection, grounding + self care – this is a challenging time but also a passageway for profound transformation.
With love + light,
