Capricorn First Quarter Square

Slow and steady the tension builds towards the Capricorn First Quarter Square this weekend. With the powerful Sun in Libra also in a square aspect to Pluto in Capricorn and Mars approaching conjunction with said Pluto all heralding imminent transformation, along with Mercury entering/adding to the Libra diplomatic vibe, and Jupiter also attempting to balance the scales in Libra. This First Quarter Square adds up to a breaking point to prepare us for the Aries Full Moon on October 18th that promises to DISRUPT.

Leading up to the Square that peaks mid-way through this Capricorn transit on Saturday October 8, 2016 at 9:32 pm Los Angeles, 5:32 am London, and 3:32 pm Sydney both on October 9th, we remain in the ‘Struggle Phase’. A time where through listening and deliberate actions, we integrate the new in with the old. This commonly results in the experience of a struggle and creates the opportunity for healing. Then for a day after the Square, we move into the Action Phase.

Keeping in mind the intentions squaring off are the ones created at the beginning of this lunar cycle on the Libra New Moon (conjunct Jupiter) and those emoted during the Capricorn New Moon on January 9th, 2016. For the day leading up to the Square, we will continue to encounter instances of perceived breakdowns that are doors to breakthroughs, and then the day after, we will be challenged to take discerning actions to break up the past and move towards our intentions.

For you see, once set in motion, there is an unofficial universal law that pulls toward and/or reveals to us that which impedes our intended future. It’s like a universal authority that’s saying ‘you want that … well, things have to shift’ and ultimately those ‘things’ are rooted in our beliefs. Our life experience is nothing more than a projection of our beliefs and when we transform our beliefs … what was once not working, becomes open to new possibilities.

The challenge exists in uncovering the beliefs and letting go of attachments to anything/one that breaks away during said ‘shift’. For it is when we hang on … that we suffer. Lucky for us, or maybe not so lucky, every lunar transit our beliefs manifest in our lives through the interplay between the sun (conscious) and moon (subconscious) energies. Right now the sun is in Libra and the moon is in Capricorn.

The sun is the source of creative energy, forming our conscious mind, and while in the cardinal air sign of Libra we seek balance and harmony … in life, and especially in partnerships. With others acting as mirrors, beliefs rise in our judgments, and we have the opportunity to let go of them to right the scales. We are given energy to see life from different perspectives and choose peaceful action. With Jupiter and Mercury adding energetic emphasis, and the greater aspects at play, our experience of imbalance will be inflated and weigh heavily on the mind.

The moon is the conduit to the subconscious and is activated by the sun’s energy to shape our perceptions from the beliefs stored in that space. Those beliefs have been planted there every new moon throughout our lives (history) by our energetic state and what we were emoting. Both on an individual and collective level.

Collectively, the subconscious experience of Capricorn has us serious-minded. We get down to business, focus on productivity, and push past difficult obstacles. We are more disciplined … even patient. We keep our eye on the end-game, not quick returns. We make powerful strides towards achieving our goals. With Mars and Pluto nearing conjunction in Capricorn and making aspects with other bodies in the sky, this energy will be intense and transformative.

Remember, individually all of the energies you experience are focused through the imprint made at your birth by the presence of planets, their aspects, and the house placement within each sign … from both the sun (Libra) and the moon (Capricorn). The resonance of that energy is determined by your beliefs, emoted with each new moon, whether they were created intentionally, or not … and the manifestations of those energies will occur in your life according to the Houses.

What was happening in your life at the beginning of the year on January 9th, 2016? What were your dominant emotions? What beliefs are you encountering … right now? What Houses do Libra and Capricorn occupy in your chart?

These energetic influences are yours to RECREATE by who you are being in your conscious mind (Libra Sun – in partnership) and your responses to unconscious perception (Capricorn Moon – your ambitions) as the moon is NOW in the sign of Capricorn. You are intentionally shaping your experience and have access to bring your energetic being into alignment with a higher state … by being conscious of the energies at play and intentionally shifting who you’re being!

Events over the next several days will reveal your beliefs through what is playing out in your life. Giving you an opportunity to be responsible for them, forgive yourself and others, and intentionally transform them through the face-off between Libra and Capricorn energies.

To receive the most out of this phase, keep your heart and mind open to the universe revealing the beliefs you have that stand between you and the fulfillment of your intentions. These are at the core of every ‘struggle’. Review your assets and find what within you will help you to thrive. Stay present to the commitment behind your intention and take swift action after the First Quarter Square peaks!
