Full moon & lunar eclipse in capricorn
The horned goat of Capricorn asks us to take a look at our stubbornness, more specifically our resistance. Often times, our resistance is closely linked to fear. Change can be scary, even if it is good and desired change, because it involves the unseen- the unknown. Saturn and Pluto, also in Capricorn gently remind us that it is time to let the old structures go to make space for the new. It is time for change. Martin Luther King Jr. (who happens to be a Capricorn) tells us that “faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.” We might not be able to see the end game, but we probably have an idea of where we would like things to go. With the partial eclipse, we are presented with some light and some shadow. Where there is light, really look and see what there is to learn. How can that light inform what might be waiting for you in what remains thus far covered in darkness? Tonight, meditate on the areas of your life where resistance and fear are popping up. What are you protecting yourself from by not taking action? What are you limiting yourself from by not taking action? How can you protect yourself while still taking that next step of action?
