Capricorn Full Moon, July 18, 2008



Full Moons generate awareness. When the Moon stands opposite the Sun and fully reflects the Sun's light in the darkness of night, we are stretched to understand this central mystery of human life: to be fully human, we must be fully aware of the two sides of our nature. These two sides have their correspondence in the two different lights of the Sun and the Moon.

Look around you and tell me if we can afford to continue to only live in our rational, egoic state of consciousness. I believe we also have to integrate the silent depths of our feeling nature. Perhaps our ability to ignore those depths is what calls forth the 'craziness' we feel at the full moon – werewolves and vampires live within us when we repress our feeling nature. The full moon calls out those feelings, whether we want it or not.

The Sun initiates and controls the cycle of life on Earth: Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall. The amount of light sets the limits of life experience – summer is for growth and expansion, just as winter is for rest and contraction. Psychologically, the Sun symbolizes your rational ego consciousness and also represents your unique Self and purpose in life – your true Identity.


The Moon initiates and controls growth and transformation. While the Sun enables the photosynthesis of plants, the Moon's light is what makes plants grow. The energies of the Moon are tied to tides and emotions and our Unconscious depths. Psychologically, the Moon is your unique personality, the way you live out your life. The Moon symbolizes your instinctual, intuitive, feeling nature and your ability to 'reflect upon' what you're learning from the Sun.


So, what's been happening in your life during this month when the Sun in Cancer, here in the northern hemisphere, brings us summer? This is the time for growth and expansion, the time of year to live life to the fullest. 'Summertime, and the livin' is easy.' Are we really enjoying it? That is the question this full moon in Cancer/Capricorn is asking us.

As I mentioned in my Cancer New Moon newsletter, Cancer energizes the Great Mother archetype, the instinctual energy of nurturing and caring. Ruled by the Moon, Cancer sensitizes you to your life's needs. Did you go inside yourself this month and pay a visit to the Great Mother within as frequently as you paid visits to the beauty and bounty of Mother Nature? Did you let one feed the other? Our inner 'personal' mother can enhance the bounty of the outer world, or cut us off from it. When we connect to our inner Great Mother we come home to ourselves. Then we find out what we are made of and what we really desire.


The full moon is in Cancer's opposite sign – Capricorn. Capricorn carries the energy of The Great Father archetype, the energy of law and order and culture. In the patriarchy, the Father archetype has become the rational energy that devises the laws and structures for group interaction. That's why Capricorn rules our government and corporate structures.

Cathy Pagano is the author of a new book, "Wisdom's Daughters: How Women Can Change the World". Cathy trained at the C. G. Jung Institut-Zurich in dream interpretation, then got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology in Feminine Spirituality, and along the way became a certified Life Coach. As an astrologer and storyteller, she weaves the Cosmic Stories written in the stars and from The Bard's Grove, comments on emerging archetypal themes in movies. Cathy works with the tools of the imagination - dreams, alchemy, myths, astrology, symbolic language, storytelling, ritual - to awaken the Soul's wisdom.

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.

Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.

Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
