What a perfect card to have popped up, since last night we had the full moon, in Capricorn no less! And what is being called a rather powerful Lunar Eclipse for this year.
With this moon cycle, a period of challenges seems to be coming to a close. If you have been feeling particularly stretched in any area of your life — whether emotionally, professionally, with health, your family or in relationships — know that the end of that phase is near. While you may not be immediately aware, or it may not be obvious at the moment, even the toughest adversities bring with them some gifts. It is a good day to reflect on what some of these may have been for you.
Additionally, the sun is in Cancer, at the moment, which brings a focus on personal life and emotions. The moon, on the other hand, is in Capricorn, which is all about career. So perhaps it is going to be a good day to reflect about the nature in which you are balancing work and life. Are you foregoing one for the other? Does you heart really lie with one, more than the other? Do you feel the need for a break? Is there an imbalance? If so, think about how you can you bring back balance for yourself.
The message for today is to use this potent time to reflect on all that has happened for you during this difficult time. What have been your lessons? What are you ready to let go of? Deep in the throes of difficulty, has some clarity emerged? Is the path ahead looking different suddenly? This is a good time to reflect on where your life is headed, and to do any minor course corrections towards that, so that your focus and your potential are aligned with what you value the most in life right now.
The full moon period is also a high-energy time for all kinds of release. So as you realign yourself and your focus, take the time today to think about all that you are now ready to let go of, and as you make space for the new, invite all that you desire.
The energy of this full moon, ruled by the goat — a persistent, steady, doer kind of animal — is definitely one of action. So while you reflect, don’t lose yourself in thoughts or stay in your head. Move swiftly into action and translate your plans to actions. If there are changes you’ve been wanting to make in your daily routine, now is a good time to enforce them. Join that yoga class, kickstart that skincare regimen, pick up your reading habit again, talk to the friend you have been meaning to call for so many days. Whatever little things you have been putting off for the tomorrow that never comes, today is the day to begin. It is never too late to begin, and these seemingly small actions will go a long way.
The fog is clearing. The trying times are past you, and the card invites you to step out into the light again. It invites action. To do things and to live life fully once again.
