We are eager to take charge of our lives, but the Full Moon in serious Capricorn on July 9, 2017, cautions us to move slowly in our quest for power. This Full Moon joins potent Pluto, intensifying our motivations and creating a sense of urgency around situations that aren't as critical as they seem. Pluto's presence reveals hidden motives and creates psychological intensity, but this energy can also be used to get to the bottom of a lingering mystery.
Meanwhile, the nurturing Cancer Sun is conjunct superhero Mars at the time of this Full Moon, concentrating our intentions on those things worth fighting for. Instead of agitating fears, we have the opportunity to become spiritual warriors, defending love against senseless attacks of hate.
Nevertheless, the ambitious Capricorn Full Moon only carries us so far; we must be willing to make wise decisions, dedicating the required time and energy to accomplish our goals. Unfortunately, an awkward alignment between red-hot Mars and cold Saturn indicates we may encounter trouble if we underestimate the distance to our final destination. Although we're tempted to sprint to the finish line, success is more likely once we accept that we're actually running a marathon.
See what is holding you back at this Full Moon with insight and advice from a Revelation Tarot reading.
