If this is the first time you are reading the 13 Moons 2015 Moon-letter, this year 2015 is a 13 Moon year, the last being in 2012. A 13 Moon year is a powerful cosmic opportunity for soul adjustment and awakening consciousness. The Seventh Full Moon for this 13 Moon-Year-Cycle is on July 2 at 02:21 TDT in 9 degrees 55 minutes Capricorn.
The Moon helps in our emotional development, it expresses the unconscious side of our personality, it influences why we do what we do. The Moon challenges us to break out of our comfort zone, it awakens childhood memories for our healing, wisdom and strength and it leads us to find inner peace. Where the Moon is placed and what is influenced each month in the year, gives us the opportunity to look within and find those hidden places where anger, hate, jealousy and fear may be found. We can only heal what we are willing to look at. The Moon also gives us access to genetic memory – the memory of our ancestors.
The Full Moon in the Cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn influences ambition, conservatism, conscientiousness, and organization. The influence of the moon this month will be around personal accomplishment, it would be wise at this time to listen attentively to your intuition. Responsibility, and all this entails, will also form a background theme during this month. You may have to step into a position of responsibility, or feel the need to live up to certain expectations. You may feel a deep sense of duty around supporting others, and life may bring to you situations which will allow you to demonstrate a capacity to accept more responsibility. This Moon enhances our ability to assist and nurture others in practical ways, and we will be shown realistic solutions to current problems.
Under this Capricorn Moon, you may not feel well equipped to deal with all those emotions (yours or others), they may even frighten you. At this time, be aware of mood swings that can take you far into your dark side. The Capricorn Moon brings up the energy of criticism, be aware of not compensating for your weaknesses as well as your sensitivities behind a sarcastic demeanor. In the face of unresolved emotional baggage, do not allow yourself to come across as cold and calculating due to your need to appear efficient and respected in the eyes of others. Allow yourself the time to need, to receive and to give affection to those you love.
The Moon is said to be in “detriment” in the sign of Capricorn, in this situation, easy and spontaneous emotional connections are going to be difficult. We will be tested in our emotional approach towards others. There is a need for taking the time to get to know others and work out how you really feel about them. It is important to understand how serious or worthwhile any emotional involvement may be before you get involved. We need to make realistic assessments with the understanding that emotional ties can be burdensome, and we need to use insight in assessing exactly where a situation is taking us, and if that is where we want to be.
This year we will be having two Full Moons in the month of July. The first is in the astrological period of Cancer, the second will be in Leo and is known as the Blue Moon. The Moon is in its sign of rulership when it is the water sign of Cancer, this placement indicates depth and intensity of emotions. During this period we may experience strong ties to our mothers, our family and to our homes. Issues around security, marriage and emotional-wellbeing, as well as psychic abilities, will be in the forefront during this month. Be mindful to not allow the opinions, reactions, moods and feelings of others to influence your inner wellbeing and your emotional stability.
The Sabian symbol associated with 9 degrees Capricorn is – ``An albatross feeding from the hand of a sailor. Overcoming of instinctive fears through gentle persuasion. Kindly conquest. Culture of spiritual values. Harmlessness.``.
The Native American Seventh Moon of Creation is known as Raspberry Moon - ‘Raspberry Moon is when great changes begin. By learning gentleness and kindness, we may pass through the thorns of its bushes and harvest its fruit, and we gain knowledge that will help in raising our families.’ – 13 Grandmother Moon Teachings.
Message to Light Workers
To all Light Workers – this Full Moon holds the energy of - ``Building an Illuminated Mansion made up of Mind, Emotion & Body`` - We are being asked to anchor the qualities of the divine spiritual energy into our daily lives, in order to stimulate the divine spark within the roots of human life, and to bring it into alignment with the divinity present within all matter. By allowing our soul to infuse our personality and thereby becoming transparent and radiant, our life expression becomes a service to humanity.
At all levels of life and conscience, the light can be liberated to illuminate darkness (ignorance), thereby allowing the mansion of the personality to become radiant, loving and illuminated. This cosmic energy coming to us through the constellation of Cancer, affects and stimulates our human conscience, moving us away from dependence and moving us towards independence and interdependence.
Independence gives us individual consciousness and allows us to affirm ourselves. Interdependence gives us the collective consciousness of the inter-relatedness of all parts that make up the whole. It helps us to see to what extent we are all parts of one unity expressed as life.
The majority of the upheavals in the world are due the results of growth in consciousness in dependence and towards independence on the part of individuals as well as nations. They have not as yet come to the understanding of planetary interdependence in relations and participation. The key to this understanding is co-operation.
Through repeated suffering, the consequences of egoism, the inner divine soul of life begins to exercise its influence. Through the cosmic energies of this period of Cancer, we are given an opportunity to liberate the parts of our soul trapped behind the egotistical personality.
We understand that the form is a simple vehicle, the creative means of expression of the soul. Used to progressively raise the human consciousness, the personality becomes aware and enlightened, the soul freed from slavery reveals itself in human life. Wisdom, reason and intuition reign over the obscure intellect and reveal the signification of the inter-relation of nature and the real quality of life.
This energy gives us the opportunity to realize that form and matter will be and can be infused by the life of the soul and consciousness. The reign of the outmoded values of materialism have left us in darkness and has formed us into dependent and irresponsible beings. Through crisis, experience and spiritual maturity, there is the appearance within human consciousness that humanity has to now, create a new form of materialism, a new way of thinking, a new way of living and a new way of being.
There are other ideas worth understanding, other ways of realizing things, new paths to serve and love humanity – these concepts are available within the cosmic energies that are now penetrating the planet and are being anchored within the human conscience. – Co-operation is the key.
Esoteric Significance of 2015 – The Mars Influence
In esoteric astrology this year 2015 is under the influence of Mars, whose energy is described as - action influenced by the desire principle. Mars governs courage, impulsive emotional behaviour, ambition and expressions of forceful energy. When these Mars energies are in balance they can be channelled for accelerated positive growth and change. When unbalanced and aimed within, these energies will lead to self-destruction. This unbalanced energy aimed outward will lead to extremes in violent behaviour. Aggression is the underlying current for the year under Mars’ influence.
Blessings to you all in 2015
