This month's full moon falls at 2 degrees of Capricorn on June 23, reaching a peak at 7:32 a.m. EST. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn the planet of hard work and discipline, so many people will be focused on shoring up things that are necessary to their personal foundation. Or it can show you areas of your life you need to work on during this time. Capricorn is the natural ruler of the tenth house of career, reputation and priorities. Now is the time to finish up tasks as Mercury turns retrograde June 26, and we will go through a period of re-working, re-organizing and re-accessing situations in our lives.
This full moon is far from flamboyant but it is considered a SuperMoon, meaning it is closer to the earth. Astrologer Richard Noell coined the term SuperMoon years ago, and wrote of this month's full moon, "On June 21, Mercury and Venus are aligned during the Mercury Max, within a couple days of a SuperMoon full moon. On the geophysical level, both alignments (and especially the latter) are very likely to be harbingers of increased storm and seismic activity. These are combinations – again, especially the latter -which I fully expect to anchor some of the year’s most emphatic geocosmic stress windows – replete with a surfeit of powerful storms, extreme tidal surges and significant seismic activity (including magnitude 5+ earthquakes and volcanic eruptions). Solar flares by definition do dump extra Gigawatts of energy into the Earth. Like turning up the heat on a saucepan of water, they can turn a slow simmer into a rolling boil. It manifests in terms of extreme weather events and increased seismicity – particularly when compounded with factors like the June 23 SuperMoon.
All the resultant increases in geomagnetism tend to nudge electrical and electronic infrastructure and equipment into greater or lesser chaos, affecting our civilization. Our bodies are electrical systems too, and people get a bit fritzy at times like this too."
This moon falls within 8 degrees of Pluto, again creating a focus on the Uranus-Pluto square which dominates the sky. This past week we saw a major stock market correction as the Sun conjuncted Jupiter showing us it was over inflated. The Uranus-Pluto square is an aspect that will shake up the world and in the past few weeks we have learned many things. In the US the major focus has been on the revelation the US government is logging phone and internet information on US citizens as well as foreign. I look for these issues to be in the news again and events of the past few weeks to continue to be significant well into the future.
