The full moon in the early hours of Wednesday 20th July is in no-nonsense, goal-driven, committed Capricorn, the sign of the trusty mountain goat. Full moons are always intense and this one’s no exception. Being in a square to fiery, revolutionary Uranus, we’re being encouraged to s t r e e e t c h out of any comfort zones and commit to the vision/s we have for our lives.
There’s a compelling need to finally stop ruminating and to really get serious about the changes we want to make. As we continue to climb our 2016 mountains, we have reached the place where we need to stop and reassess everything.
Start by asking whether the mountain you’re on is actually the right one and if you’ve selected the best path possible… or whether you need to consult your internal GPS (your emotions – sun in Cancer) and reassess your route.
Do you have the provisions you need in order to make it to your summit and if not, how can you go about procuring them?
Perhaps you need to dump some excess baggage, so as to lighten your load or find some people to help you carry it….or maybe you need to take a little bit of time out to replenish your energy and gather your wits, before resuming your climb?
However you decide to proceed, the time has come to really ask yourself what your real bottom-line priorities are… and then commit to them absolutely.
Questions to ponder…
- What is the most important, pressing thing in my life?…
- What is vital to my physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health and wellbeing?
- What ONE small step can I take today towards consolidating this, making It a reality?
And then strategically plan to make time for it….every day. That’s what Capricorn, the pragmatic, disciplined time-keeper is really good at.
I think it’s about putting our priorities before everything else. If you really want to write, paint, meditate, exercise, eat well, start a new business, move into a new home, find a partner, elevate your vibration, create more financial abundance in your life, change the world, then it’s about making time for that before anything else.
I remember visiting an astrological counsellor a long time ago, who asked what the biggest priorities in my life were. I told her that one of them was my spiritual / creative / personal development. She then asked me how much time I committed to it on a daily basis. When I answered, somewhat sheepishly, that I didn’t have a lot of free time to spend on it at all, a look of complete shock and confusion crossed her face. Frowning deeply, she asked ” But how can you NOT spend time on it, if its the most important thing in your life?”
Food for thought…. her words come back to me often!
It’s about making time every single day for our top priorities. If you look at people who achieve big things, that’s what they do.
William H Murray, Author of The Scottish Himalayan Expedition wrote this:
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans. That the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one, that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream, you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.”
…Like a mountain goat … one step at a time!

Have a wonderful wintery week.. Wrap up warm and nurture yourself
