Full Moon July 19 2016 is at 27º Capricorn decan 3. Aspects: Sextile Mars & Square Ceres. Fixed Star: Beta Indus
Capricorn 3 can be a difficult place for the Full Moon as this decan’s great ambition to sit in the seat of power conflicts with emotional ties. The Full Moon is also in aspect to ambitious Mars and mater-ial Ceres. The aspects only add the tendency at this full moon to fawn over authority figures and be overly impressed by thrones. On the positive side, those touched by this Full Moon can also make decisions that are popular with the common people.
This Full Moon highlights behind-the-scene advisors who ‘rule’ vicariously. Care is needed not to pick the wrong leader to follow (If we must have one at all), otherwise one can become the lap-dog to a very domineering and bullying superior. Orders at this time are followed unquestioningly, and although loyalty is admirable, it can be disastrous if misdirected.
This Full Moon is shrewd and clever, but this ‘power behind the throne’ can be abused, when it is not directly accountable. The ‘King’ will get the comeback for advice given, wether good or bad, while the adviser avoids blame. Sometimes the behind the scenes dynamic can make this Full Moon seem quite shadowy and untrustworthy.
Full Moon & Constellation Indus
Full Moon on Beta Indu found in the small constellation of Indus the Indian. Indus shares its root with Indigo, which represents the third eye in the 6th chakra. Indigo the blue dye, originates from India, as does the Chakra system itself. The 6th chakra is believed to be related to intuition and gnosis (spiritual knowledge).
Some American Indian leaders now believe that Columbus did not use the name ‘Indian’ because he thought he had reached India. Instead Columbus was said to have called the native people ‘en dios,’ rather than indios. ‘En Dios,’ means ‘In God.’ The 6th chakra could also be the ‘All seeing eye’ that we get in Masonic symbolism and mystery religion traditions. The ‘All Seeing Eye’ appears on the American dollar Bill, while Indus is represented as a native American Indian in the sky.
Full Moon July ~ Aspects
Moon sextile Mars is as you would expect an extremely passionate aspect, but it really does need to express this energy physically or sexually otherwise anger-management can become a big problem. Mood can change very quickly, but the frantic tide can be very creative. Moon sextile Mars will be passionate about their artistic products and be very driven to project them into the world. This Full moon will express itself vigorously and ardently. Moon/Mars subjects can be a very hot blooded and excitable, so they may gain the reputation of being somewhat temperamental and volatile to work with.
Sun Trine Mars makes for daring, courageous and impulsive creatures. All Sun/Mars aspects will have this bravado, but at least with these softer aspects there is less of the tendency to really get burnt when playing with fire. The soft aspects and especially the trine do offer some protection when they take part in high risk activities. Those touched by this Moon will feel great passion and have go-getting approach to life. They don’t need or enjoy taking someone else’s instructions, nor do they have to rely on the approval of others. Therefore self motivation is very high and they are first off the mark.
Moon square Ceres can be supremely seductive, tough, charming and ruthless, all wrapped up a fluffy teddy bear. At this Full Moon do not underestimate what appears to be a harmless cuddly toy, for it has very sharp teeth! At this time a person may promise to take care of you and certainly do so, but be careful what you agree to because they may never, ever, let you go. Moon square Ceres is the aspect equivalent to the Salvation Army, seeking to rescue those in the most need. At this Full Moon we must be careful however, that our saving doesn’t turn into a saviour complex.
Sun square Ceres seems generate triumph over adversity. At this Full Moon we may see many who make a career out of it. They may use past victimisation as fuel for pity or admiration from others. Championing the underdog may be a way of coping with a very low sense of self-worth. If at this Full Moon we loose our spiritual connection with the earth then there is a danger that we can become overly obsessed with money and power. Greed can be over-compensation due to childhood abandonment and/or being raised by a narcissistic parent.
