the full moon is almost upon us once more! this moon is known as the full buck moon, because the antlers of male deer are in full-growth mode at this time. bucks shed and regrow their antlers each year, producing a larger and more impressive set as the years go by.
this time in capricorn, the next full moon will peak on july 3rd. as the sun in cancer forms an opposition to the moon in capricorn, it is a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of that which was started at the new moon. it is an emotional time -- a time of romance, relationships, and fertilization.
to understand this full moon, we need to recognize that the cancer-capricorn polarity concerns the balance between the private life, domesticity, the need for a home base, and nurturance (represented by cancer) versus the public life, career, reputation, and accountability (represented by capricorn). attachments and love are ruled by cancer, while achievements and rewards/punishments are ruled by capricorn.
in some ways, this polarity deals with the balance between unconditional love and conditional love. cancer encourages us to value our home base and our roots, while capricorn persuades us to consider our sense of duty and responsibility along public or professional lines. while cancer may be content to be dependent, capricorn urges us to be grown-up and responsible.
this is a time for a reality check, a time to ground and center yourself. make growth a priority and push past the limitations you have on yourself. make big changes and adjustments as you gain a new sense of maturity, make your goals clear, and take responsibility for your life.
take out any crystals or tools you feel need charging and place them in sight of the moon overhead. leave water out to absorb the energies of the full moon. spend time connecting with nature, meditate, rest. do spellwork for love, release, banishing, protection, and transformation.
