Full Moon in Capricorn ~ July 13, 2022

My July 2022 Forecast notes:

July 13 Full Moon in Capricorn, 2:38 p.m. Eastern time. This “Blessing Moon” closely trines the North Node in Taurus, bringing an earthy, collective benediction. Turning up the intensity, this is the second of three Supermoon’s. It loosely conjuncts the US Pluto Return. The degree of this Full Moon closely conjuncts the Saturn-Pluto Conjunction on January 12, 2020 — the signature energy of 2020. Hidden and taboo topics come to light, and we’ll feel them in a deeper, more profound way than usual. With Mercury in Cancer sextile Uranus in Taurus, we’ll find unconventional ways to discuss these insights. Venus in Gemini trine Saturn in Aquarius suggests we’re in it for the long haul, but our love, commitment and artistry might take awhile to manifest. In this case, “Delay leads to delight.”

The Full Moon occurs at 21°21′ Capricorn, so we round up to the Sabian Symbol for 22° Capricorn:

PHASE 292 (CAPRICORN 22°): BY ACCEPTING DEFEAT GRACEFULLY, A GENERAL REVEALS NOBILITY OF CHARACTER.

KEYNOTE: The realization that one may grow through defeat as well as, and perhaps more than, through success.

At this second stage we find what seems to be a paradox, but the spiritual life is always paradoxical. The great sinner can become the most renowned saint, and a medieval Pope a criminal. What matters most always is INNER STRENGTH.

On a personal note, we’re called to recognize where continuing to fight no longer serves. Humility both requires and generates great strength. Pluto only destroys that which stands in the way of relentless life force energy crashing through the status quo. At some point, we must face the inevitable: the more we resist, the greater the tsunami’s force. Once we admit our defeat, we open the door to Grace.

On a collective note, we may be called to reassess any issues that began in January 2020. COVID and all its widespread fallout come to mind. Surprising COVID information may present itself around the time of this Full Moon. Seeming “victors” may find themselves ousted by shifts in the established narrative (Mercury in Cancer opposite the Full Moon and sextile Uranus in Taurus.) The Full Moon’s Sabian Symbol suggests knowing when to cut losses, resign, or sue for peace. Again, humility both requires and generates great strength. The North Node trining this Full Moon brings support for the highest good of all — even if it doesn’t initially seem that way.

Also remember that this Full Moon arrives in context of the July 12 second exact hit of the first US Pluto Return. The stakes are high for any country undergoing its first Pluto Return. We’re talking life or death, karmic reckoning, power shifts, radical restructuring, healing crises, and/or a rebirth that regenerates a nation’s founding principles.

The Sun/Moon Midpoint at the time of this Full Moon is 21°21′ Aries, very close to the US natal Chiron. This suggests old wounds will reopen, with a chance for deeper healing. Transiting Chiron has just moved within orb of this US natal Chiron point, and is now in the same degree as the Chiron point at the time Watergate began. On June 17, 1972, a similarly hostile political climate engulfed the US, and the next two years of the Watergate scandal exposed systemic corruption, including CIA and presidential interference in an FBI investigation.

Because this Chiron Return coincides with the US Pluto Return, we can expect echoes of Watergate with even more intensity: revelations and wounds that trigger an existential crisis for the United States of America. This won’t all unfold at the time of the July 13, 2022 Full Moon, but pay attention to hidden and taboo topics that come to light. They’ll play bigger roles during the New Moon in Leo and the Mars-Uranus-North Node mega-conjunction in Taurus the final week of July. This is true both personally and collectively.

Some people say, “As the US goes, so goes the world.” That seems self-centered, but the US does affect a lot of policies, wars and opportunities around the world. Wherever you fall on the political spectrum or planet, this maelstrom stirs the collective pot. You can benefit from sudden change by positioning yourself to make quantum leaps when the chance appears. You don’t need to get sucked into a downward spiral. Chaos generates opportunity. Humility and curiosity often bring pleasant surprises and Divine Intervention. Remember: “Necessity is the mother of invention.”

Instead of clinging to something long past its prime, practice looking for silver linings and blessings in disguise. “That which you seek is also seeking you.” How much energy could you reclaim by turning with an otherwise irresistible tide?
