CAPRICORN FULL MOON

Numerology of the Day: 8
[7+1+9+2+0+1+6= 26 = 2+6 = 8]
What goes around comes around is the idea behind the number 8. Just like the symbol of infinity, this number embodies endlessness. 8 can be the gift that keeps on giving, or it can represent the shackles of bondage to an oppressive circumstance. The result of the 8 energy depends on how its power is wielded. The get back is only as strong as the put out, sort of like karma. Or exactly like karma. If every action has an equal and opposite reaction, then whoever reads this better act accordingly, or else.
Once this personal responsibility is assumed, 8 can elevate ordinary individuals to executive heights. 8 is related to the archetype of the boss, one who has self-control and well as power of the circumstances of subordinates. Ambition, business, and corporation all fall under the rule of this authoritative number. Not so positively, the number 8 may be cumbersome and sensitive to the pressures of this gravitational existence, so people who identify with this vibration must often fight through fatalism. With discipline and balance, 8 can achieve greatness.
Major Arcana Tarot Correspondence for Capricorn:
XV | The Devil
Some might say that Hell is really here on Earth. In that case, it would be advisable to look at this physical dimension as The Devil’s dominion. Who better then to call upon than this guy to make the most of this material world and master the five senses? When his energy is harnessed with “upright” intentions, The Devil can be a great taskmaster who bestows lessons of discipline and concentration unto his ambitious students. This card appears to endorse the value of not only respecting, but also working optimally within a defined set of boundaries. The ones who overstep those boundaries, however, are likely to have a much different experience of this wicked archetype upon which the unconscious idea of evil is projected.
The Devil is concerned only with the “real” world. Spirituality, enlightenment, and love are not so important in this realm, and those qualities are probably lacking when this card is drawn. The Devil is a reminder that as one endeavors toward the most impressive peaks of professional success and tangible attainment, the calculation and determination that are required to dominate the earth element leave little room for the consideration of abstract sentiment. At its most decadent, The Devil is bound unapologetically to the temporarily gratifying but insidiously destructive pleasures of the flesh, ranging from a little raunchy to incredibly grotesque, possibly to the detriment of the “higher self” and the accomplishments toward which one strives. A sacrifice might be in order.
The Full Moon is the monthly separation of the Sun [ego, identity, expression] and Moon [empathy, intuition, emotion], as they assume their most distant positions in opposite signs. This great space between our luminary bodies allows for a more comprehensive awareness of the energy that has been building, as the moon is illuminated to maximum capacity, revealing momentarily the mysteries of the creation cycle that once were [and will be again] concealed behind the nocturnal veil. Just as visibility increases to supernatural proportions, the emotional atmosphere is heightened prompting what seem to be unusual experiences and outbursts. The earthly realm becomes a mirror image of this cosmic standoff. Holistic awareness and dynamic self-expression are the blessings of the full moon, but a long overdue confrontation could be the prerequisite roadblock that makes it challenging to receive them. The goal is to recognize hidden facets of self instead of projecting dark revelations onto partners/opponents. Then and only then will personal balance be made possible, and thus all else is resolved. In the meantime, as the opposition builds, be prepared to go back and forth.
The Sun is giving us a glimpse into the mushy inner world of Cancer’s tough shell, but the Moon’s transition into hard-bodied Capricorn will give us a better view. Why is Capricorn considered opposite of sensitive Cancer?

Fired up and ready to blow? Slow your roll. This is big, and it has a long way to go, so don’t rush it. It’s here in front of you now, but what you are seeing now is not the final form by any means. When the rollout is this slow you know the show is going to be spectacular.

Taking on more responsibility than you are able to shoulder might make you feel like you are powerful for a brief moment, but the effects will be insidious if continued. Whatever you are trying to prove by going out of your way to identify so intensely with such an unnecessary burden is rooted in a peculiar psychological pattern that must be exposed immediately. Doing everything yourself with no sort of delegation is another way, albeit cloaked in the guise of ambition, to manipulate the situation so that you are never powerless to an unanticipated variable, instead of allowing life to unfold as it will. You may even believe you are doing The Others a favor by assuming their share of duty, but as your fear-based motivations come up from the unconscious realm into the light of awareness today, interpersonal resentment could threaten to poison your relationships.

Showing off is flashy way to draw attention to oneself and one’s acquisitions, but it’s also a telltale sign that the braggart has something to prove. People have funny ways to alleviating their inadequacies. Despite intentions that have everything to do with insecurity, you may still experience discomfort when it comes to sharing with such people or anybody really, as your interactions as of late seem more competitive than compassionate.
Insecurity is whatever it will be
It lives within you and it may be in me
Insecurity sucks and makes it hard to feel free
Until we learn to love self unconditionally
It’s like a hole in one who is otherwise complete
It’s like a stroke of heart in the midnight heat
It’s like a stallion in shoes that quite don’t fit its feet
It’s like shadowboxing a ghost you’re unable to see

The waters are choppy, but you have the power to steer your ship in the right direction, and you look good doing it. Your shipmates, including your own crew as well as the passengers you’ve picked up along the way, are amazed by your ability to go with flow and maintain some sense of direction. These people are likely to come to you to help them stabilize their own stormy situations. They trust you to guide them when they are lost at sea.
Despite your apparently confident composure, your certainty as a captain may waver. Can’t these people see it’s a struggle for you not to swim in circles? Don’t know they that you too are blown away when there is too much wind in your sails?
If ever you are unsure of which way you are supposed to navigate, remember that the most accurate compass is your intuition, which will always be with you no matter where you wander. Continue reading

Mars enters Aries
The air is alive, buzzing uncontrollably with interpersonal excitement, but amazingly you are still alone. If only these social butterflies could see things from through eyes. Only then might the fanatics understand why you’d rather drift into a different state. Some things are just more intriguing when seen from afar. More tolerable, too.
Could the reason be a little deeper? Maybe if it were easier, you would try to fit in. Or maybe you would admit that you are bit interested, at least more than you portray. If you are playing the silent card to attract attention, life is likely to imitate art, and you might mess around get yourself ignored.
there is a transformation that occurs when we express ourselves fearlessly in the moment. the responses that are elicited by living truthfully are testimonies to our inherent power, but only if we claim it as our own. self-engagement can be so enrapturing that it is startling to be confronted by the inevitable reaction of disagreement, as others try to solve our riddles, searching the depths for that thing within us that triggers their own feelings of uneasiness. in those moments it is important for us to recognize our own individual influences, as we are capable of affecting our environment, no matter how our respective presences are received by other people. if we choose to dim our lights and shy away from the awesomeness of authenticity in order to manipulate the external factors, our power is projected, giving it away for others to wield as they wish. when we risk our emotional comfort by embracing the sometimes controversial originality of this existence as it is embodied within us all, despite the adversity we may face from those suffering from their own psychologically projected traumas, then we begin to transcend the darkness with the dawn of limitless light.
the new moon is exact on June 26, 2014 at 4:08 AM EST in 5 degrees cancer, the mother of the zodiac. as always, the new moon is the beginning of a lunation [lunar cycle] prompted by the conjunction of the sun [ego expression] and moon [subconscious reaction], so it represents an initiation or a starting point. this is a chance to wipe the slate clean and start, and the quality of the start will relate to the realm of cancer [the experience of emotions]. when two planets come together in conjunction to unify as a single energy, the effect can be either volatile or harmonious, or both. it all depends on the other aspects.
Remember how I said I was afraid of bugs? Today I came face to face with one of my biggest conceivable fears. Years ago my cousin told me about the time she was driving her car and along came a spider crawling across her windshield. She too is scared of insects, and she nearly crashed her car at the mere sight and proximity of the arachnid. I know it is irrational to react like that, but I feared this scenario because I had no clue how I would handle myself while operating a vehicle, although I was way too young to drive when I heard this story. As you all know, I am now a driving man, and earlier I found myself in a similar situation.
After running errands for my upcoming 5th annual family cookout (barbecue if you’re confused), I hopped back the whip (my mom’s Honda Pilot) and drove off. I was so ready to be back home so I could make myself a quick smoothie before I indulged in enough Skinny Pop to offend a Monsanto cornfield.
(Here’s the smoothie I made yesterday. I swear it tastes better than it looks.)
They say it’s healthier to eat fruits and fibrous veggies first, for digestion and shit like that. As I pulled out of the shopping center parking lot, I caught a peripheral glimpse of tiny terror; there was a spider on my sun visor (aka my personal vanity).
Although the spider was small, my nervous system went into immediate and dangerous overdrive. Since I was literally driving, I planned to pull over as soon as I could, as I did not want this spider descending down onto my forehead or my lap or any other part of my body while I was operating the vehicle. Of course if I pulled over, I’d either have to wait for the creature to crawl out or physically remove it from the premises, neither of which I had time for (Skinny Pop, remember?). After being forced to endure this discomfort for a few seconds, I got the vibe that the spider was just as stricken. She was still and so was I. I decided to keep driving.
After being retrograde since February, Saturn has finally resumed direct motion in Scorpio. Where Saturn goes our caution follows, and when Saturn is in Scorpio, the darkest of our fears are confronted in an intensely psychological way. Saturn’s nearly 5 month-long backtrack saw us re-examining our power structures. We were forced to get real about wasting resources, using more discipline, and harnessing the mutually transformative, creative potential of synergy.
