Scorpio :: Scorpio Rising
A cat drinking milk. It’s time to nourish yourself. By taking care of yourself first, it’s easier to feel safe in a relationship. When you feel safe, you can be strong, but also open. Give yourself lots of empathy. Spend quality time with yourself. Ask yourself what you really need and how you really feel, so that you can truly open up your heart in relationship with others. Only you have the power to convince yourself that you are safe to create intimacy in a relationship with another person.

Sagittarius :: Sagittarius Rising 
Picking your way along a rocky mountain path. You are negotiating your way. You need to keep your mind on the details. If you try to look too far ahead, you might miss a step and fumble. But at the same time, you must remain hopeful and balanced. You are on the right path. You are exactly where you need to be. Just stay present in the moment and take care of the business at hand.

Capricorn :: Capricorn Rising 
A clear pond, the water is so still that you can see your reflection. Look at your reflection in the watery mirror. You are unique. Your individuality is perfect. But this isn’t just a regular mirror, it’s a pond— a symbol of the creative and intuitive water element. This symbol means that you must trust yourself as a unique individual and you must trust your creative expression. You must let your creativity and intuition lead right now. Express yourself and enjoy yourself. That action will help you choose your next steps.

Aquarius :: Aquarius Rising
Two snakes wrapped around Hermes’ staff— the caduceus. You are being invited to find the stability between two opposites— the physical and the spiritual worlds. This may be a time of emotional healing and stabilizing. You must be willing to go deeper into emotional analysis than is usually comfortable or expected. Find way to integrate your expectations for yourself in the physical (professional) world with your emotional needs. Maybe this means you embark on a deep investigation of your emotional health with a therapist or trusted friend, or maybe it means you begin a meditation practice. Look for balance within.

Pisces :: Pisces Rising 
Petals showering down from the branches of a flowering tree. A gust of wind releases fragrant and beautiful flower petals. It’s time to bring in more air element, so that you can have brilliant new experiences. In astrology, the air element represents mental and social connections. Open up to new learning and new social groups. Get out and circulate. Talk about your ideas. Become curious about other people’s stories. Tell your own stories in a new way. Make new connections so that you can experience fresh beauty in the world.

Aries :: Aries Rising
A leopard behind a rock. Waiting silently. Ready to pounce. Even if you are the hunter and not the hunted, there is always a risk. If the leopard wins, new resources have been won. But if the leopard misses, she is potentially exposed to unseen danger and hunger. This is an interesting symbol to interpret because it’s about taking some risks to increase your stability. Usually risk and stability don’t show up in the same sentence. But this time they do. What do you need to risk so that your stability is enhanced? It may be that the risk is emotional.

Taurus :: Taurus Rising
Looking out at the landscape. Fields and hills stretch far into the distance. This is your time to get centered in who you are and what you need. Do away with self-doubt. Really. There’s no reason for it. You don’t need to fear. You are capable of doing everything you want to do. Maybe the last 6 months have taught you that. You can trust that the choices which have got you here were sound. Orient yourself in a moment of confidence and then look ahead to define your vision for the future.

Gemini :: Gemini Rising
A handprint in the sand. It’s time to be playful and look for magic in everything. Don’t let a jaded mindset get in the way of having fun. If you are finding that you need to be right, or you need to be an expert — stop and begin again. Embrace the concept of the “beginner’s mind” and just enjoy learning. Let go of the ego, which always needs to be right. Dissolve your ego. Be playful and interact with the world like a child in a constant state of discovery.

Weather patterns. The unpredictability of the weather. This symbol is about your internal weather. The emotional storms of the mind and the clear sunny days. We have scientific methods to predict the weather. Do you have logical methods to predict your emotional weather? How can you get a few steps ahead to anticipate and learn from your emotions? Most of the time this can be achieved by observing yourself objectively. Try to do this right now so that over time you can find logical ways to work with your emotions.

A giant gum ball. That’s a lot to chew. Your career zone is lit up by the Full Moon this week. Bite into it. You can excel. You can achieve. You have to work for it, but success is available. So take action. Don’t hold back. Make it fun and enjoyable. The symbol of the giant gum ball is fun. Take a childlike approach and be playful in your work life. But keep chewing.

Virgo :: Virgo Rising
Lined notebook paper. Get serious and start taking notes. It may be time to stretch your mind through writing, reading, learning, or some kind of academic study. You have a manifesto to create. Orient yourself mentally. What is your mission? What is your “why?” Zoom out to see the big picture. It might be time to ask yourself, “What’s my vision for my life?” Write it all down.

Libra :: Libra Rising
A doe blends into the forest. Have you been keeping yourself camouflaged? Have you been hiding out? Hiding some part of yourself from the world? It’s time to step out into a new leadership role. Notice where you’ve been trying to blend in. It may be that the emotional cost of being seen feels high. But what’s the emotional cost of hiding? The truth about life is that it’s a series of transitions. From birth, to maturity, to death. You are always in a state of transformation. You have to stop hiding so that your transformation can be witnessed by others.

THE 2017 CAPRICORN FULL MOON WANTS YOU TO TRUST IN YOUR PROGRESS

The 2017 Capricorn Full Moon is an opportunity to set loving boundaries, trust in our security, and celebrate just how far we have come, says Sandra Sitron.

Full Moon :: July 9th 2017 :: 12:08 am ET :: 17 degrees Capricorn

As the earthy 2017 Capricorn Full Moon faces off against the watery, sensitive Cancer Sun, this lunation is a rare opportunity to harness emotional compassion and logical detachment simultaneously. Move back and forth between these two opposites. Each one supports the other … 

Systematic Capricorn wants you to know who you are, and set boundaries with integrity. The more that you know yourself, what you need, and what you will allow—the more you can feel safe to open your heart and be vulnerable.

Open-hearted Cancer wants you to soften and glow with love. The more you can trust that love flows to you from family, friends, and lovers, the more you can believe in your own inner strength.

Look up at the Sun and the Moon and see the archetypical Father and Mother. In the ancient understanding of these archetypes, Capricorn is Father—supporting and protecting. Cancer, the Mother, nurtures and loves. Imagine the Moon and the Sun surrounding you with motherly love and fatherly protection. 

It will be helpful to feel supported by your luminary parents, because at this Full Moon the planets are arranged in a tense configuration …

Pluto urges the Moon to step into the fire of transformation and let the past die away. Warrior Mars goads the Sun to get defensive. At the hub of all of this frenetic activity, happy-go-lucky Jupiter acts as coach and referee. He is optimistically convincing all the players to work together to find creative expansion and a new way forward.

Those defense systems have been created for different reasons. Your job now is to be very practical about how they are set up. Clean your weapons. Disassemble them. Put them in storage. Lay down your arms. Notice where your systems of defense are firing. Press the deactivation button.

There may be conflict at the 2017 Capricorn Full Moon. Knowing this, can you set up a post as an observer in your own mind? Can you watch yourself as you reach for a defensive word or attitude? Drop it. Find a different way to react.

Time is your friend in this endeavor. If a strong emotion comes up, take a time out and wait for emotion to subside so that logic can come forward. By giving yourself time to think, you are more likely to react in a way that feels productive.

And remember, despite the challenges, it’s still a time for jubilant celebration! The themes during this Cancer moon cycle have been about opening your heart, learning how to nurture yourself, and taking good care of your inner child.

Take this opportunity to celebrate any progress you’ve made around letting yourself be vulnerable, either in this moon cycle, or in the last year.

Full Moon conjunct Pluto
Bees swarm the tallest daisy, overtaking it.
Birth. Sex. Death. Rebirth. The cycle continues. Every transition is a chance to let go of what you knew and make space for something new.

Pluto is urging you to let go of control but this is a tricky subject. Sometimes it’s obvious when someone is being controlling. But sometimes controlling behavior is cloaked as “advice.” Often, it can be hard for sensitive people to let other people have their own emotions. The hidden inner dialogue can sound like, “If I can make you feel better, I’ll feel better too.” So without knowing it, a sensitive, loving person can actually be trying to control the people around them by “helping” them feel better. And that takes up a ton of energy!

Every time you consciously let go of control this weekend, you create more space to grow. Even though giving up control may feel uncomfortable, in the long-run it will help you see yourself as an authority. It will help you flourish in integrity. It will help you stand up a little bit straighter, just like the tallest daisy.

Full Moon opposite Mars
Lava flows from the opening of the volcano.
Eruption. Find a way to expand beyond your boundaries. Move forward with action. Feel the fire of creativity and self-expression. Flow freely, fueled by the force of your own motivation. Take on the challenges that you’ve been circling. Wherever there was hesitancy, there can be forward movement. But don’t forget about care, compassion and open-hearted love. Choose a path of heart-centered action, not a fire-river of destruction.

>>>

Moon and Sun T-square Jupiter
Primary colors.
With the basic building blocks of color you can create any hue imaginable. By sticking with simple basic tools, a limitless myriad of expansion is possible. So if your goal is growth, find good tools and trust them. Gratitude is a tool that works. Asking for help works. Loving yourself works. These are your primary colors. Let them help you expand.
