The Goat's Gaze

The Goat's Gaze

The Full Moon in Capricorn comes early in the week, shining bright over Monday night, although its moment of maximum fullness will actually occur amidst daylight on Tuesday.   This Full Moon occurs right on top of Pluto, and in a square with Uranus, pulling this lunation firmly into the revolutionary dynamic of the Uranus-Pluto squares.

Meet the goat’s gaze and you’ll find its strange pupil is a black scrying mirror.  Look deeper and you’ll see the dark silhouette of what has to come next.  Things are volatized now- burning and changing.  The phoenixes have nested and are preparing themselves.  So goes July.  But what goes up will come down.  Things will settle into a new pattern soon enough.  It’s something you can see from here, if you’re willing to look it in the eye.

No horoscopes this week. Enjoy the Full Moon.

       @remington The phoenixes are showing up around the Pluto-Uranus squares.  The firey birth of Uranus in Aries and the necessary entombments that Pluto in Capricorn entails provide a firm symbolic ground for  these visions to arise from.

    The phoenixes have nested and are preparing themselves. – indead they have – at least in my case – I am burning right now some of my shamnic tools of the past beause their lessons are learned and the family tree has to be cleaned from those energies….

    The Moon is a differentiated body: it has a geochemically distinct crust, mantle, and core. The Moon has a solid iron-rich inner core with a radius of 240 kilometers and a fluid outer core primarily made of liquid iron with a radius of roughly 300 kilometers. Around the core is a partially molten boundary layer with a radius of about 500 kilometers.
