Full Moon in Capricorn

Full Moon Capricorn

 

Welcome to the Full Moon in Capricorn which waxed at 12:53 AM. EST.   The Moon representing our emotional nature, the inner self as opposed to the outer self exhibited by the Sun, our subconscious, the person that you are without necessarily knowing it which has been shaped by defense mechanisms built by the past that we may not even remember; our innermost fears, as well as loves and needs.  Capricorn is feminine cardinal earth. It is the “I use” of the zodiac, ruled by Saturn, the Roman God of sowing and reaping. It is the sign of the harvest culminating what we bring into our existence by our actions. The Moon in Capricorn is practical and able to make use of every idea or situation, so you may feel inspired at every turn, all those things you had no idea what to do with, may all of a sudden seem like a clear plan that had always been there now coming together.  Emotions with Capricorn are seldom an issue because Capricorn is practical and has a stabilizing and restrictive effect on the shifting influence of the Moon. With 10th house energies, the Moon gives us insight and practical understanding with what’s going on around us.

The Sun is our basic character, our outward identity, who we show to the world, our conscious personality.  Cancer is feminine cardinal water, and is the “I feel” of the zodiac. The Sun in Cancer is sensitive and intuitive, with good practical common sense.  With the opposition to the Moon, we find ourselves torn between giving one expression over the other; like a child in the middle of his parents getting a divorce, caught in the middle between what is logical and why we feel exactly the opposite.  But Capricorn’s influence on the Moon has that calming effect, so we’re not prone here to unexplained over emotional outbursts.

Opposite the 10th house is the 4th, the house that rules the home and our domestic environment, as well as the parent of lesser influence, and our formative years.  With 4th houses energies, the Sun almost takes on the role of the Moon with respect to home and feeling secure.

Saturn is the planet of limitations, disciplines, and responsibilities.  It also shows our integrity and fortitude, as well as, on the other side of the coin, selfishness, and pessimism.  Without Saturn’s obstacles, we would never grow, because Saturn gives us what we need to push through in order to be successful.

In Capricorn, the sign of discipline, we may feel an overload of structure, which either leads to shutting down or rebelling. But since the conjunction with the Moon helps the Sun’s influence in the home, this may be a good time to do some renovating if you’re inspired to make changes; go out and get some colorful curtains and add a spark of brightness in your favorite room.  My daughter has some of the loudest shower curtains I’ve ever seen, but it seems to make her happy every time she walks past the bathroom. And since other people around you may also need that boost, don’t be surprised if they ask for your help in doing their home – could turn into a new hobby. The conjunction gives us an air of thriftiness, so go for the bargains.

Uranus is the planet of ingenuity, and uniqueness and shows where we exhibit our independence. Positively placed or positively aspecting your chart, Uranus energies provide strong intuition and attract luck through change.  Taurus is feminine fixed earth, so we have an abundance of feminine energies for this Full Moon. Uranus lends for originality, so you may see new purposes for things you took for granted with a little dose of eccentricity and unconventionality, and you have the makings of things that people go nuts over. But a word of caution, charisma can be a dangerous drug, so weild it wisely.

Today in the Hebrew is the 14th day of the month of Tammuz.  Last moon festival, we talked a bit about the month of Tammuz being a month filled with judgment, and dangers, but also within that judgment, is the remedy.  The sin of the golden calf was on the 17th of Tammuz and the destruction of the temple on the same said date 1000 years later, and the first thing I thought of when I read that was, the god of the Torah held grudges.  Back when I was in the church system, I found it difficult to reconcile the god of the old testament with the god of the new, and the teachings of Paul following the teachings of Jesus, but then considering that the people who wrote the books of the new testament were not even the people they were attributed to, and considering the teachings of Paul seem in many ways to side-step the teachings of Jesus, i.e., the teachings of Jesus were physical, and doing, whereas the teachings of Paul were more spiritual and fluff, I began to fall within the group of apostates in our messianic group who had begun to question the validity of the new testament.  So I could not reconcile the god of judgment with the god of love, how could they be one and the same? Which goes back to the question of when the people went from believing in many gods to believing in one, and why that occurred. Even the children of Israel who allegedly left Egypt during the exodus were monotheistic, because before Moshe returned to Pharoah to request their release, they had not heard of the god of the Torah. Monotheism seems to discount the actual existence of pagan gods and demotes them to mythological beings derived from fancy, but questions have arisen that point to the possibility that they were actual living beings, which we’ve held to be true for quite some time.

Capricorn is an “I’ll believe it when I see it,” “show me the money,” and “the proof is in the pudding,” kinda sign.  Little by little new, information comes forth that disputes long held beliefs, and then we have to re-think and adjust.  Sometimes, the actual truth of something is just known without receiving actual physical proof of it, and when the proof comes along, it’s just confirmation.  I know the glyph of Cancer, the crab is said to walk sideways because it’s prone to stumble, but I see it a little differently.

Cancer is the first sign of summer and is ruled by water.  The second letter of the Tetragrammaton, the letter Hei, represents the summer months and the element of water, and Cancer is a water sign.  I think the crab walks sideways because he’s getting out of the way of other people’s mess and silliness, sidestepping all the bullshit so he can find his own path back to the water, and he’s thinking, “I knew I was right all the way there.” Capricorn, by contrast, is surefooted.

I’ve been watching a lot on cults and extreme beliefs over the past month.  One odd things people might not know about crabs, in captivity, they tend to pull their own legs off, and I think that’s what a lot of people do when they box themselves into one rigid religion that they then cannot reconcile belief with action.

The Cancer/Capricorn opposition is filled with an almost perfect balance of intuition and logic; and knowing when to rely on which.

The letter dominating the month of Tammuz is the letter Chet.  Chet is the first letter of the hebrew word, Chaim meaning life.  It is said that there are two levels of life, life to enliven and the state of essential life.  God and the power of creativity are part of life to enliven, Essential life is life in general and said to manifest itself as pulsation, the secret of run and return.  The letter Chet is constructed by combining the two previous letters of vav and zayin with a thin bridge shaped line called the chatoteret and the new energy is the secret of hovering or “touching yet not touching.”  The spirit of “hovering” appears at the beginning of creation as in “The spirit of god was ‘hovering’ over the water.” By the process of “hovering” it is said that God continues to sustain and nourish his creation while allowing each creature, or each vessel, the ability to grow and develop independently – free will.   The letter chet, therefore, hints at the balance between the revelation of God’s presence to us and the concealment of his creative power… and how is it concealed? How many of us grew up thinking things just happen? How many of us grew up thinking things that happen were somehow caused to happen by something outside of ourselves?   If man is indeed created in the image and likeness of the gods, one has to infer that man has the same creative power… and god said… and there was… I say, so shall I am.

The letter Chet takes us to the 18th Path on the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, connecting the sephirath of Binah (understanding) with Gevurah (severity) and the Chariot card in the Thoth Tarot.

“The Issue of the Vulture, Two-in-One, conveyed; this is the Chariot of Power. TRINC: the last oracle!

 

In Egyptian mythology, the vulture was sacred to Maat, the goddess of justice and supreme balance. The vulture was said to conceive without mating. Its child immaculately conceived in a mysterious internal process that, for other creatures, requires contributions of from both male and female. The Issue of the Vulture is therefore the product (or child) of an internal marriage of two perfectly balanced things, or Two-in-One.

The Hebrew letter associated with the Chariot is Cheth, which, when spelled in full, enumerates to 418, the same number as ABRAHADABRA, the magical word that expresses the formula of the marriage of the microcosm with the macrocosm”

The Chariot represents the zodiac sign of Cancer, whose symbol is a not-too-subtle glyph for a particular technique of tantric yoga in which male and female energies and essences are perfectly prepared, balanced, and exchanged to create the Two-in-One elixir of Life. The elixir is then conveyed in a particular manner to serve as a eucharistic talisman of unlimited creative potential.”

The sephira of Binah is the energy we need to comprehend ourselves, our identity, and our mission  in life. Associated with Saturn, Binah helps us in the understanding of our tikkun, the fixing of our soul.  Gevurah or severity resonates with strength, power, and force; associated with Mars in our chart, and shows where you possess courage.

For any newcomers – we’ve moved into doing a guided meditation on the tree of life path associated with the energies of the day.  The guided meditation is taken from Chic Cicero’s Book Scrying on the Tree of Life with the corresponding solfeggio frequency tuning into the background.  The meditation is on the music stream.  If you don’t wish to participate in the guided meditation, that’s ok, I welcome you to sit back and listen to music I might suggest pulling up this Youtube stream with the solfeggio frequency itself.

 

 

In his book “Scrying the Tree of Life,” Chic Cicero writes:

Seekers on the Eighteenth Path must realize that the outer

form of the human being is, in reality, a container (Cheth) for the

spirit or divine essence. Since we are the vessels that the divine

spirit chooses to inhabit, it is important that we dedicate all

aspects of ourselves toward eventual reunification with our

eternal source. We must be receptive to the energies of the divine.

When this reunion is finally achieved, we will come to realize that

there was no true separation in the first place.

 

Path Symbol: Triple Enclosure

Triple Enclosure

For our newcomers, the white boards behind me to the right show the sign of the enterer and the sign of silence as will be described in the meditation, the letter Gimel is on the ground,  the tree of life board on the altar contains a list of the information on the path working, and to the left is a copy of the associated tarot card which will give you a copy of the texture if you click on it, and the path symbol is to the left of the tarot card.

 

So let us go into our meditation – turn up your music, close your eyes and enjoy.

 

 

So I like for us to take this time to share any thoughts or reflections on the meditation if would like to share with the group, please feel free to come into voice and share your thoughts.

 

 

All hearts and minds clear…. so to the Guardians of the North/Earth, West/Water, South/Fire, East and air, Spirits Above & Below…ancestors, gods and goddesses…Father and Mother, we thank you for joining in our celebration, and we trust in you to carry forth our wishes and intentions to begin the process of manifestation according to our will and the love that binds us all.

hail and farewell to the guardians of the North/earth, great buffalo

Hail and farewell to the guardians of west and water, gentle dolphin

hail and farwell to the guardians of south and fire, the great snake

hail and farewell to the guardians of east and air, Great winged eagle.

 

May there be peace between us now and forever to all beings in every direction.

Walks the circle counter clockwise gathering the energies of the circle and casting them into Mother Earth.

 

In love and trust, the circle is now open, but always unbroken. as you leave the ritual circle this evening, don’t just teleport out, make a symbolic pilgrimage through the gate of fire and be ye transformed!

Merry we meet, merry we part, and merry shall we meet again.
