full moon / july


Thunder Moon
Saturday, July 8th, Capricorn, 9:06 pm PST

We have entered into some big energy with this moon. For the last few months I have been talking a lot about the retrograde of Pluto, and during this full moon the moon will join Pluto in the sign of Capricorn, and the Sun in the opposing sign of Cancer will join Mars. This will create a huge duality, one that holds the power of an explosion, but if handled skillfully and not from your ego it can be used for a huge boost. Mars is all about passion and being in action, while Pluto dives deep into the underworld to pull up and reveal what has been hidden. The last few months have been helping to prepare us for what will come to the surface and the test is to see if we know what to do with it. This time is really all about moving into the unknown, and what we do when we get there. The test is staying, and not doing something to get out and back into the known.

I have noticed a trend in the air, something I recognize from a past version of myself. I am sure you are paying attention and your eyes are open then you are seeing the patterns and really looking at what your soul is trying to show you. Remember two weeks ago when I talked about how the soul wants to evolve? Well, it has been bringing you experiences and circumstances for you to do this, and sometimes it has to bring them over and over and over. So, if you feel like you are caught in a loop, or things are feeling familiar like you have been here before it's because you have. Your soul wants to evolve, so it will ensure that you keep facing what you need to face until you have the breakthrough with it. The tricky part is to not let the awareness con you into thinking you know how things will work out. We are really being forced to keep moving while being in the unknown. And you might not want to go where your soul is pushing you to go. You might be trying to change the story, or make what you are seeing mean something that is more comfortable for you to handle (aka - known), or mean that you get what you want. Be careful. Most likely what you want isn't what your soul wants. Remember, it wants the breakthrough that will break a pattern, and that might mean being a little (or a lot) uncomfortable. It probably also means - you don't know! Try to listen to the deeper story of what's happening in your life right now - not the one that has been on repeat, or the one made up in your dreams. But the one that is so much bigger, divine and in alignment with your soul. 

It is time to move beyond the ego - beyond the known. The ego is formed by the known, and we need it, we can't be without it, it does serve a purpose. But it's when we come from it what we limit ourselves, and limit our growth. The ego doesn't like the unknown, so see if you can catch yourself when you are coming from the ego, or when it tricks you back into the known and familiar, because it will. Especially as we use the energy of the Capricorn moon that wants us to be out in the world in a bigger way, it wants us to take a leap without seeing the net. So take the leap.

If you remember one thing these next few weeks let it be this - The test is staying in the unknown, and not doing something to get out and back into the known. Keep trying to stay, even if you fail, learn from that and try again. We are moving into something totally new!
