What's happening in the planets this week

The FULL MOON occurs on Thursday, June 24th, 2021, at 2:40 PM EDT.

A Full Moon occurs when the Sun in Cancer forms an opposition to the Moon in Capricorn. The Full Moon is a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of that which was started at the New Moon. It is an emotional time – a time of romance, fertilization, and relationships.

The Cancer-Capricorn polarity concerns the balance between the private life, domesticity, the need for a home base, and nurturance (represented by Cancer) versus the public life, career, reputation, and accountability (represented by Capricorn). Attachments and love are ruled by Cancer, while achievements and rewards/punishments are ruled by Capricorn. In some ways, this polarity deals with the balance between unconditional love and conditional love. Cancer encourages us to value our home base and our roots, while Capricorn persuades us to consider our sense of duty and responsibility along public or professional lines. While Cancer may be content to be dependent, Capricorn urges us to be grown-up and responsible.

Cancer represents the origin, and Capricorn represents the goal. Neglecting either end of the axis will surely backfire on us. Ideally, a balance should be found between the two energies, and this is what the Full Moon invites us to do. This Full Moon is about balancing our commitment to our career and families. Something has been building inside of us, and now is the time when the energy of the cosmos fairly demands that we let it out. Over the next two weeks, we will discover what this means for us. For now, we can’t sit on our feelings. We need to express them.

The Full Moon illuminates this conflict between roots and direction. With the Moon full and bright in the sky, symbolic “illumination” occurs in our own lives. However, these new feelings and revelations are emotional ones, as there is a sense of emotions bursting forth into our consciousness. It’s time to express ourselves and to let things out of our systems. Of course, we might want to exercise some care while doing so, knowing that what is coming out of us is fresh, unrefined, and not particularly rational as yet.

This lunation harmonizes with Jupiter, suggesting a sense of confidence and ease associated with realizations and epiphanies occurring now.

Tarot Message for the week of 9 June 2021
Temperance – It’s a matter of give and take
There are times in life when we can go with the flow and let the currents of life guide us, and other times when we have to get that paddle out and row as fast as we can.
If you’ve been going with the flow recently, it may be time to take life in your hands and make things happen. What do you need to change about a situation and how can you go about bringing about transformation in areas that have been chugging along way too slowly. ?
Many of us seem to be  a state of flux and indecision at the moment, and the more we ponder on things, the more we start to feel stuck within our own dilemmas. No matter which way you choose, this is the time to make some sort of a decision either way. Otherwise you’ll find yourself feel even more stagnant right now.  Look out for the signs that life is offering you. If something isn’t working then don’t try to force the issue. Rather look for new solutions to your existing problems. You may even need to retrace your steps and start again in order to get things moving.
