Conventions, Contentions, Contests And Considerations: July’s Capricorn Full Moon

A Large Aviary vintageYou cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair. Chinese Proverb

I hope you love birds, too. It is economical. It saves going to Heaven. Emily Dickinson

In almost everything that touches our everyday life on earth, God is pleased when we’re pleased. He wills that we be as free as birds to soar and sing our maker’s praise without anxiety. A. W. Tozer

We are involved in a life that passes understanding and our highest business is our daily life. John Cage

I know why the caged bird sings, ah me, When his wing is bruised and his bosom sore, When he beats his bars and he would be free; It is not a carol of joy or glee, But a prayer that he sends from his heart’s deep core. Paul Laurence Dunbar

The heart of a woman falls back with the night, And enters some alien cage in its plight, And tries to forget it has dreamed of the stars, While it breaks, breaks, breaks on the sheltering bars. Georgia Douglas Johnson

The full Moon each month marks a time of heightened energies and events. It often marks the culmination of the energies released at the new Moon. Emotions can be supercharged as the Sun and Moon are on opposite sides of the zodiac and illumination is increased – it’s like we can see in the dark – and we can be hyper-aware as well as being hyper-awake. The effects of a full Moon can be major or minor, depending on how they interact with your own chart. Sometimes, realisations or events that are unleashed, or unlocked, can stretch their meaning months into the future. A lot can be learned at the time of the full Moon and whether it’s lunacy or illumination, or a combination of both, there’s magic unleashed with every full Moon.

July’s full Moon in Capricorn occurs on July 19 in the United States and the United Capricorn Full Moon set for Washington DCKingdom, and in the morning on July 20 in Australia. This full Moon is smack on Pluto of the US 4th July chart. And, the last new Moon was smack on the Sun of that chart. With the Democratic and Republican conventions happening in the next week or so, the election fevers are set to go up a notch, particularly with the degree of the Sun at the opening of the Republican convention on Cancer 27: A Furious (or Violent) Storm In A Canyon Filled With Valuable Homes (the convention starts the day before this full Moon).
