Background Information...

FULL MOON IN CAPRICORN

PENUMBRAL LUNAR ECLIPSE JULY 7th AUST EST 7.21pm ECLIPSE 7.39pm

This Moon in Capricorn with Sun in Cancer is all about the structures, work and goals you make in regards your life, security and home. This eclipse will assist you to examine if you are focused on merely your insecurities about how you live or if you are ready to break through your limitations and adapt to the every changing world. The cosmic energies will help shift you to start moving into the bigger picture of your purpose on Earth and what you are here to achieve from the level of yourself as a Co-creator, from the personal family, home and life to the greater family of humanity and your home the planet Earth.

This is the night of emotional release where we are given an opportunity to cleanse ourselves of the residual baggage that we hold onto and to reach deep into our well of strength and decide that achieving your own inner peace is the only goal worth attaining at this moment in our human evolution. This Full Moon simultaneously uncovers our fear and reflects the solution to our fear: acting only from love, compassion, and doing the hard work of relieving the suffering of all sentient beings by achieving enlightenment and inner peace. This is a very powerful and serious Full Moon which allows us to let go.

Tonight  we will be working with the Goddess Yemaya and the God Aganju who are the Nommos who are a race of beings that takes the physical forms of dolphins, whales, mermaids/mermen. Their home world is a planet in the Sirius star system that is mostly warm aqua-blue water.

Rock us deep in your love.

Intent – Moving Forward

A bowl of water is passed around the circle, this is a time to allow all the residual heartache and pain to be released. Think of your aspirations, where you want to go in your life. Now sprinkle a few drops of water into your right hand, honouring the water element in Cancer. Think of the flow of emotion, the blessings of nurture and compassion. Cupping your two palms together in a gesture of prayer, think of what you want to bring into your life and give thanks to Yemaya ask her to wash her waters over you and cleanse your soul. Holding your hands over the bowl, rinse your hands with the remaining water, allowing your energy then to flow into the bowl; once everyone has released their energy into the water a procession will move to the open park where we will pour our energy back into the earth, for healing of the earth.
