Full Moon in Capricorn, June 24, 2021

The Full Moon in Capricorn is quite a mixed bag. There are a lot of ‘positives’ or what astrologers consider ‘easy’ aspects. But there are also some challenging ones, and they are potent.

Full Moon in Capricorn

On the Summer Solstice, just a few days ago, the Sun reached its zenith and entered the sign of Cancer. The energy is now beginning to turn. Although the heat of summer is still to come, the Sun is slowly beginning its decline. But for a brief period, we can enjoy this peak moment and celebrate that things appear to be looking up, for now. But the Moon in Capricorn is pragmatic. Make the most of this joyous time, but don’t let down your guard.

Sun trine Jupiter / Moon sextile Jupiter

Jupiter, now retrograde, is at 2° Pisces and casting a sextile to the Moon and a trine to the Sun. This offers some hope and cautious optimism – although subdued. It is a reminder to look inward and to reflect on the lessons of the past year. Mindfulness and compassion in action are the keys.

Mercury direct/ trine Saturn – sextile Chiron

Mercury just turned direct. Still in Gemini, he is conjunct the north node (a little wide), and trining retrograde Saturn in Aquarius. Both, Saturn and Mercury/North Node are casting sextiles to Chiron in Aries. Again, the focus is on health matters. But, it seems to suggest that this is not ‘fixed’ by simply treating the symptoms. We need to address structural change to fix the underlying issues, and we must be willing to face the truth and take responsibility. During this period, revelations are likely to surface. Are there going to be consequences, or will they simply be brushed aside?

Saturn opposite Mars /Square Uranus

This is the most challenging aspect of the whole chart – a T-square. Mars opposes retrograde Saturn, and both are squaring Uranus. This is a very bristly configuration. All three planets are pulling in different directions and patience is nowhere to be seen. This is a conflict between the drive for personal freedom and the cautionary principle in the interest of society as a whole. It is a conflict between solidarity and individuality. The valve is Uranus in Taurus, and by its very nature, it is likely to blow.

Venus opp Pluto / Venus trine Neptune /Neptune sextile Pluto

The other striking opposition is between Pluto and Venus. This is raw, powerful, intensely emotional stuff. Some people may experience it as a passionate sexual attraction, but it is a dangerous game of power and control. Neptune is involved as well – he trines Venus, sextiles Pluto and reeks of scandal.

Inner and Outer Worlds

Inner and Outer Reality Where is the boundary between inner and outer reality? We see the world not as it is, but as the brain interprets it for us, based on our sensory experiences. The brain creates our image of the world according to its exposure to a variety of signals or stimuli. Due to this fact it is, pretty much impossible to experience anything completely fresh and unbiased. The mind automatically activates neural pathways and connects the essence of prior experiences to the present....

The Inner Team

You know the feeling: you need to make a decision about an important issue but it’s an ambiguous situation and you are barraged by contradicting inner voices all trying to shout each other down. Who are these characters? And which one should you listen to, if any? How are you supposed to make up your mind? Friedeman Schulz von Thun has drawn attention to the conundrum and popularised the idea of personalizing aspects of the psyche by abstracting them as separate characters that all ‘live...
