Suit Up And Show Up: Full Moon In Capricorn Rituals…

Time to shine a light on accomplishments and hard graft, Stargazers...

It’s Cancer Season and so the Full Moon naturally shines bright in Capricorn. Read your horoscope here and use the stars on this day of illumination to really work the celestial weather…

Here are my top 5 tips!

1. Acknowledge Mountains Climbed Over Time!

Capricorn, The Mountain Goat!

As the Sun appears in Cancer, the season in the spotlight calls for kindness, care, compassion and even coddling! But with the Moon in the colder, more distant and ambitious earth sign Capricorn, it’s time to reveal what we’ve worked so hard towards

Full Moons are a time of illumination and fruition, now in this earthy sign we can acknowledge long-term endurance (just as Winter tests us, this sign reflects patience and time spent trudging through frosty, even brutal circumstances).

As it passes through Capricorn the Moon’s ruling planet is responsible Saturn, a planet that helps bring out our diligent side, and reminds us of our limits.

Saturn’s the planet of graft, discipline, responsibility, persistence and hardship, the Lord of Karmic consequences, and time (and all measuring devices, sands through the hour glass!)

At This Full Moon, Watch The Clock…

The area of our horoscope ‘Grandfather Saturn’ is passing through shows us the potential to learn by putting in the work!

We can look to this stern, stoic planet for clues about what this lunation is hoping to reveal…

Check in – are you steady on your path or are you feeling brittle, ready to break or crumble?

“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.”

Ernest Hemingway, Sun and Venus in Cancer, Moon in Capricorn…

For inspiration, read the last book written by Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea…

An apt title for the author born on this lunation, since old age brings wisdom, and the ocean waves bring us the calm assurance we also require.

2. Suit Up, Show Up – And Shine Your Light…

As we adjust to awareness of all we’re striving towards, we’ll want to dress the part.

The Fashion of Summer 1998…

Add formality and classic touches to today’s attire with a look that says ‘ambition’.

Take inspiration from the 90s (and their collars, belts, buttons and cuffs), when a stellium of planets was queued up in Capricorn’s constellation.

Go for power dressing, in navy, charcoal and black, and grey tones that reflect the reality of work and climbing the corporate ladder…

Linda Cardellini, Sun & Saturn in Cancer, Moon in Capricorn…

Capricorn is the most attuned to hard work, including craftsmanship and quality touches, so the mood blends the gentle side of Cancer, with professionalism.

Anthony Bourdain, Sun in Cancer, Moon in Capricorn…

With his Cancer Sun, Anthony Bourdain answered a calling to care, nurture and feed through his profession as a chef. But in this quote we sense his Capricorn Moon, too…

“Assume the worst. About everybody. But don’t let this poisoned outlook affect your job performance. Let it all roll off your back. Ignore it. Be amused by what you see and suspect. Just because someone you work with is a miserable, treacherous, self-serving, capricious, and corrupt asshole shouldn’t prevent you from enjoying their company, working with them, or finding them entertaining.”

A man of the world, Bourdain came into contact with all kinds of people, and found the capacity to balance his focus on work, and the way he felt about people who were less than savoury!

He didn’t let ‘corrupt assholes’ stop him from shining his light and joy with everyone that encountered him…

3. Honour A Remembering, And All That’s Gone Before…

The ability to tell the time or sense the past is a very Cancer-Capricorn theme, as Cancer is nostalgic, while Capricorn reveres antiquity.

You know when you take the paint off an old canvas and you discover that something’s been painted underneath it? That’s what I feel like – that part of the old is coming through the new.

Carly Simon, Sun, Mercury, Saturn and North Node in Cancer, Moon in Capricorn… 

Full Moon’s are a window of maximum light – and celebration – of revelation and acknowledgement.

Now aglow in Capricorn’s sign we can reveal old, antique touches, enduring quality, workmanship and mastery (something only built through sustained effort and experience).

Attune to memories, and with a nod in Capricorn’s direction, too – peel back the layers for a cold, hard look!

4. Get Really, Really Real!

Edgar Degas, Sun in Cancer, Moon in Capricorn…

The Full Moon leaves nothing to hide, as the light of Luna is incredibly exposing.

We see this in French-born artist Edgar Degas, regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism.

However he rejected the term, and preferred to be called a realist.

Degas favoured scenes of ballet dancers, laundresses, milliners and the lower classes of Parisian society like sex workers, exposing the cruelty of the world.

He uncovered misery, hardship and raw beauty.

Casting his subjects in harsh, artificial light, he obsessed over capturing the body in motion. But far from kind and caring, he demanded his models pose for hours at a time, enduring excruciating discomfort as they held contorted positions.

He wanted to capture his subjects “cracking their joints” at the barre.

We can take something from Degas, sensing what’s been tough on us, over the long-term. Meditate on what you’ve had to wait out, what’s been painful but necessary…

5. Brush Up On Dental Care & Leverage The Earth…

We don’t need too many reminders to focus on our dental health, but if ever there was a collective moment to brush our pearly whites the full moon in Capricorn is it!

Capricorn rules the skeletal structure, bones and teeth – all that is hard and even potentially brittle.

This Full Moon treat yourself to a new brush and toothpaste, something classic and attractive.

They now have charcoal toothpaste, which is a great choice for the Capricorn Moon!

You can also add charcoal to water, infusing your drinking H2O with activated charcoal, which has a wide range of reported health benefits.

This includes drawing out impurities such as chlorine, commonly found in tap water, and infusing the drink with minerals.

Known as binchotan charcoal, activated charcoal sticks have been used as water purifiers in Japan since the 17th century.
