FULL MOON in CAPRICORN, July 8th, 2017


July 8th, 2017

When I think of Capricorn the phrase ‘always rising’ comes to mind.  The image of a mountain goat, carefully, steadily scaling impossibly steep cliffs forever on an upward climb.  They don’t charge up the mountain.  It’s a perpetual act – day in, day out.  Their expressions are severely understated, if they show any at all.  Considering they are constantly engaged in this death defying activity, one wrong step and it’s *%#@*!!!  You would think their body language would reveal some hint of stress.  Teeth chattering, a swear word here or there.  What is it that they know that we don’t? How on earth do they manage? What could  possess these creatures to keep at it? It’s not like they look happy. Maybe they are just doing ‘their’ thing, without question, as nature intended, for reasons beyond what our complicated, overwrought minds can comprehend. Maybe they are just hungry….all the time. 

Something to consider under this week’s skies with a little help from the Mountain Goat: 

* Fun fact: Mountain goats can leap 12 ft in a single bound.  Another fun fact: You are not a mountain goat. 

If you are looking behind you, you’re not looking ahead. 

If you’re thinking too many steps ahead, you’ll get dizzy and lose your balance.

If you stop to congratulate yourself, (take a selfie)? Um…risky among other things. The Mountain Goat won’t be amused – might even be embarrassed for you. 

Too focused on what the other goats think? The crevices you’re navigating are different than theirs.  You could try to pull off the same moves.  If that’s your strategy, might as well take a selfie. 

Fight with another goat? …..on a cliff? It would make sense if you had a film crew and safety harness.  The title of the movie could be “How I almost made it to the top.” You’d probably make about as much money as the goat who painted the view from up there, but is still alive, ears intact.  

You could cry.  shout. swear. scream. still have to take the next step if you want to get anywhere.  Others may take the opportunity to post it . The record will be available. forever. on the internet.  Like a bad selfie that won’t ever go away. Find a secluded cave or wait ’til dark if you must. 

Then again, it’s not a race.  You’re just climbing. As nature intended. Maybe for reasons beyond the scope of current understanding.  Hopefully the weather is not too bad, and there is a patch of grass at the next foot hold to keep you always rising.

Weekly Horoscope

June 27th- July 3rd,  2017


Last week’s New Moon initiated a process of dislodging built up emotional excess. As it waxes in Virgo you’re approaching a period where it will be much easier to reset without having to fuss with the distracting clutter/hoo-ha that seemed to have kept you from the more purposeful goals you’ve had in mind. That is, the heart of your matter, so to speak, knows what makes you feel alive, secure and well but has been unnecessarily blocked by self-aggrandizing complications. In other words, the simplest version of you echoes the best of who you are, what you have, and tends to influence others in a stronger and more direct manner. 

Over the weekend Pluto sends beams to Mercury and Mars pointing out the few weeds left kicking around that will likely need tending. It would be wise to deal with them head on, accepting and removing them from the root of your psyche, or by making them a deliberate feature of your future landscape. Either way, if you are indeed taking this opportunity to reset, you’ll want to make sure the seeds you plant are offered their best chance.

“I can shake off everything as I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn.”— Anne Frank

“After all,” Anne had said to Marilla once, “I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.” — L.M. Montgomery
