The Full Moon is on Thursday, June 24 at 1:39 pm CDT in 3° Capricorn. This lends itself to a focus on responsibilities, from big plans and projects to your daily task list to family concerns.
The nature of this Full Moon is influenced by three planetary directions:
I'm always watching the symbols in my life to see how the planetary patterns play out. Yesterday, I saw the Mercury and Neptune play out in a mild way. My husband and I drove 45 minutes to meet up with a friend for lunch at a favorite restaurant that we hadn't been to since pre-Covid. (Mercury rules short distance journeys. So any trip that you take where you're home the same day is considered a 'short distance journey' in astrology.) We pulled into the parking lot at the same time as our friend. But the restaurant was closed!
We had checked the website that gave the restaurant hours and it should have been open. We were able to ask at the take-out door and found out that the restaurant hasn't been able to hire enough employees to open full-time. They stopped being open for lunch two weeks ago. They just hadn't updated their website (this is the hidden or obscured information of Neptune). Fortunately, we knew of another favorite restaurant nearby and had a pleasant lunch anyway.
Why did I tell you this story? To help you pay attention to your own symbols this week and take time to review your most important projects to see if some piece of information needs to be verified or re-verified. For example, if you make travel reservations under a Mercury and/or Neptune stationary point (or you travel then), you should make a phone call before you leave to make sure everything is in order.
My guru, Goswami Kriyananda, often said "attitude is all." He meant that no matter the aspects or situation, if you keep a positive attitude, it softens your karma. Or laugh. Finding the humor in a predicament is an instant karma softener. Also keep in mind that humans are excellent problem solvers, so we have the ability to face any difficulty with the skill and experience we've gained through our lives.
