“There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” ~ Nelson Mandela

On Wednesday July 1st, the moon will be full in Capricorn, and our emotions and desires will be running high—and hot!

Romantic love has been and will continue to be a big theme this year astrologically. So many of the movements and conjunctions of the planets have been about giving us the confidence to pursue what is in our hearts.

This month Jupiter and Venus (the goddess of love) have been dancing together in the skies and will cumulate on June 30th with an immense event—this passionate energy lends itself to the full moon in a big way.

Each moon, whether it is new or full is about asking ourselves a question. Lunar cycles are about initiating change, and giving our souls a check-up, to see where we are and where we want to be. After all the recent changes we’ve experienced this full moon in Capricorn is asking us, “Why wait?”

Emotionally, we’ve been doing a lot of purging from our lives, and in turn have also done a lot of self-exploration. More than likely, many of us have come into our own hearts the past month, and are very confident in what we need and want from our lives.

It’s has been like a light of truth shining into our darkest places and letting us slowly illuminate whatever feelings have been hiding inside of us.

We have been taking our time and initiating change slowly in our lives—but all that is about to change.

We are going to wake up and realize with a shrug of our shoulders that there is no time like now to go after what we want. This moon isn’t about taking crazy chances, or big risks, but instead it’s going to feel like a light suddenly turns on, and we can’t deny ourselves what we want any longer.

Sometimes the only option we have is to jump right in.

The wonderful thing about this moon in Capricorn is that although we are going to want to dive head first into our future, we are doing so grounded in practicality and the knowledge about our choices. This isn’t a leap of blind faith. Capricorn is an earth sign, and is known for its traits of confidence and practicality. Capricorn usually is slow to react, but because of its ruling planet Saturn being in retrograde through Leo until August, it’s all about initiating passionate change now.

There is no more waiting for what we know we want.

While this moon and the conjunctions of Venus and Jupiter are all about romantic love, for some of us that energy may translate into other areas as well. Under these conditions we may have completed the journey back to ourselves and our heart center—we may have discovered what our true passion is in life and possibly what career direction better suits us now.

It has been all about the journey to find our own individual truth and then making a life out of that.

This year is the finale in a series of years, since 2012, that are meant to rearrange our lives and bring us back to ourselves. A lot is going to change this year, and while some change happens slowly under the radar, there will be other times like this summer that things are going to move faster than we ever thought possible.

The energy is antsy right now, but the most important thing is to breathe into whatever we are feeling around this time. Acting out of fear will not help us on this particular journey, and while experiencing fear over change or the new is normal—it’s not where we want to make our decisions from.

Living life big takes courage, and it’s not for the faint of heart. Lucky for us—starting with the energy on the Solstice and leading up to July 1st—whatever fears we had are going to fall to the side, because the desire and passion inside of our hearts is going to be pushing us forward.

This is the summer of love—and this is just the beginning.

July is going to be a hot and heavy month for us. Not only are we tired of waiting to manifest what is inside of our hearts, but this month is pushing us to take risks—because everything that has happened over the course of the past couple years all comes down to this moment.

“Once in a blue moon” is a phrase that we are all familiar with—it’s a phrase to represent special chances, or moments. In July we have not only one full moon, but two, and it is this second full moon that is dubbed the blue moon. Soon I will be releasing my special Full Moon in Aquarius: Once in a Blue Moon forecast, but for now, it’s important to be aware that this first full moon in July is setting the tone for the entire month.

Between the first full moon on July 1st and the second full moon on July 31st we are going to feel the pull of desire on our hearts in a breathless and very passionate way. We are going to be drawn to those that excite our soul and make us feel alive. We are going to crave only those relationships which honor our authentic truth, and we will find ourselves seeking out those opportunities that pull the strongest on our heart strings.

This moon is going to light the fire in our sacral chakra and move us towards passionate endeavors. Whether it’s investing time in a worthwhile project, or spending hot nights under the moon with our lover—we are going to be filled with passion for our lives.

We need to get ready for fireworks in all aspects of our lives, but most especially in our hearts—and bedrooms. We are passionate creatures, and like the tree, some seasons we lay dormant and others we bloom into possibility.

The planetary alignments and this full moon are throwing kerosene on what has already been smoldering…

And it’s all about to finally explode and light up our life in a big way—now all we need to do is enjoy the show.

I have a late Capricorn Moon, not square to Neptune. Saturn forms a tight trine to my Moon in the 9th. In my youth it was difficult to express my feelings. In times of crisis, I can turn off my feelings until I am ready or feel safe enough to express them. I do have Moon square my Aries Mars and Mercury. My anger could be like a pop up thunderstorm in summer, quick blow up and then gone. conflict with feelings and thinking. My Moon is helped by a tight sextile from my Jupiter in Pisces and Venus in Taurus. I know it is always written that we are cold but I think are feelings are very powerful and not easy to express. Frankly, I would have preferred a Aquarius Moon.

Wow. I so feel this. The past few years have been SO intense, it really does feel like it's time to jump in. Thank you for the words of encouragement!!

Transiting Saturn is in Scorpio, not Leo.

anonymous Jun 30, 2015 1:44pm

Correct the error in the article. Saturn is not in Leo, and will not be for more than 20 years.

anonymous Jun 23, 2015 7:58pm

This is GREAT! Truly inspiring side the last few years have been confusing for me. Am a single momma bear have a two and three and a half quarter year old cub (Polly-Anne) who will be three on July 12th! My twin sister sent me this article and I really appreciate your genuine Spirit! Happy early birthday to you! You look fantastic!!, thought you were in your early twenties! maybe I’ll meet you on a beach in a dream! Keep up the inspiring work!!!!

Saturn is not retrograding through Leo! It's retrograding through the last degrees of Scorpio. Jupiter is in Leo!!

    anonymous Jun 28, 2015 8:07pm

    It entered into retrograde in Scorpio but it will move through several signs as I am sure you know. A planet doesn't stay stationary even in retrograde. Thanks for the question though we've had a couple questions along this line. Love&Light

      anonymous Jun 30, 2015 5:18am

      Saturn is slow moving and will return to sag in september, it sort of undermines the article and no way is it anywhere near Leo, would make more sense to just correct the article.

anonymous Jun 22, 2015 11:50pm

Ooh, goodie!!!!! This passionate Cancer cannot wait! My tarot reading for 2015 predicted I’d find my Soulmate this summer. I’ve been waiting almost 13 years!

anonymous Jun 22, 2015 9:34pm

My birthday is on July 14, right in the middle of two full moons. I have had some very eventful, even profoundly life-changing times this year as I am turning 34 and am curious as to how it will feel for me to be the anchor between two polarities (at least that’s how I see it ;0 ) as oppose to on either side. I am definitely coming into my own. Thank you for the lovely article. Bless.

Comment/question for Waylon’s disbelief video posted at the bottom of this article.

Do you believe that the moon affects the changing of the tides? If so, then why, when humans are such a high percentage of water, can’t we be affected by this planetary pull also? Mercury is essentially a giant magnet, surely that could have influence over objects here on earth, it’s a pretty big planet, an integral force for keeping earth on its own solar trajectory. Take one of those planets out of the system and we’re all doomed.

I’m not 100% convinced that all astrologers know what each of us will experience in a day but there are some very interesting tools for the toolbox of life to add in here. It’s not the be all and end all of life and living but there are grains of belief that one shouldn’t discount because someone posted that you’d have a great day but didn’t.

I’m interested in the ‘seeming coincidences’ that somehow coincide with planetary alignment. What’s in someone’s astrological birth chart is just one facet of who a person is, and it certainly adds to the richness of how I come to know them. It’s no different from their lived experiences, their Myers-Briggs personality type or birth order. Again, it’s not the be all and end all but it is a fascinating aspect that makes that person who they are and how they came to be at that moment in time.
