The Full Moon in Cancer opposing the
Capricorn Sun, has arrived at 22° 27'.
The Full Moon in Cancer opposing the Sun in Capricorn restates the classic dilemma of home vs. career, professional life vs. private life, public responsibilities vs. family responsibilities that we dealt with six months ago.
Now the shoe is on the other foot, with your ambitions, self-image, and personal focus set out in the area of professional status and community achievement ... and your heart longing to be home, safe in the haven of your private life, with time and attention available for development of your inner world.
Basically the scales have tipped too far toward attention to your public life ... so Life calls up the other side of this polarity ... showing that you need to give more time to your family relationships, home conditions, and private interests.
Once again, you need to find balance between what could be two full time occupations -- and obviously you simply cannot serve two full time Masters. But finding ways to compromise between your public demands and your private loves and give enough support to each is your task now as you look for ways to satisfy both without slighting either.

A Day with No Lunar Aspects -- Not quite one thing ... not quite another ---> First things first -- There are days -- or long periods in a day -- when the Moon is not technically void-of-course, but it sure as heck feels like it!! Your motivation is shot. Your energy levels register near empty. You have a hard time concentrating. Your mind and focus just seem to drift every which way -- except where you'd really like them to stay. Your mood is kind of blah. Not really depressed -- but headed that way. Not real cheery either ... and it could take some work to push it there.
The Fractiousness and Fracture Lines of the Full Moon -- The crisis is predictable. It happens every month. ---> One of life's great divides -- All Full Moons involve some kind of conflict. Usually, as the Full Moon forms ... and for several nights following, you feel pulled in two directions at once, required to try and serve two masters ... no matter how impossible you know that is logically. Life's demands in two opposing / competing areas become equally demanding and intense.
Shadows in the Moonlight -- The Full Moon and its Testy Temper ---> The Sun Opposing The Moon -- Who you are now vs. who you used to be -- The aspect of the Sun opposing the Moon is the classic celestial phenomenon the rest of the world calls The Full Moon. In Astrology, The Full Moon symbolically highlights tension between two conflicting desires, ambitions, requirements, or sets of values -- each a respected and necessary part of life, and each somehow problematic for the other.
The Moon in General -- Your Inner Self of Feelings, Emotions and Intuition ---> Welcome to your inner world -- In Astrology, The Moon represents our inner feelings, our emotions ... and our deep security needs. It reflects our basic habits, instincts and automatic reactions. It speaks to some elements of our Karma and childhood home, our upbringing, family background and specifically our relationship with our mother (or major mother figure from the past.)
The Sun in General -- Your Essential Self of Power, Will, Vitality and Ambition ---> The essence of you -- In Astrology, The Sun represents your basic core identity. It gives information about the qualities of your ego, your individual self-expression, your self-image and your sense of personal identity.
The Celestial Event of the New Moon ---> When The Moon joins The Sun in the sky -- In astrology, the celestial phenomenon known as the New Moon occurs at the exact moment the Sun and the Moon occupy precisely the same point in the sky-map of the Zodiac -- the same degree and minute of arc in a particular sign. This alignment is known as a conjunction.
Born with the Sun in Capricorn -- The Capricorn Character ---> Reputation is everything! -- If there's a party animal anywhere in your character, it comes from somewhere other than your Capricorn energy. The Capricorn part of you was born sober, and grown up, and knowing how to behave. That Capricorn part of you wouldn't tie one on or wear a silly paper hat at gunpoint. There's bound to be a camera somewhere in the room ... or a lurking reporter. Or the local gossip.
When the Sun is in Capricorn -- December 21 to January 19 ---> Doing what it takes to get through -- When the Sun is in Capricorn, people are conservative, deliberate, dignified and determined. In the Northern Hemisphere, it is winter, after all -- and everyone needs to make it from here to Spring. Consequently, actions and attitudes are frugal, methodical, organized and steady. The mood is serious, practical, responsible, and prudent.
What Is a Conjunction? ---> Conjunctions are aspects in astrology where the planets or elements involved occupy approximately the same degree and minute of arc in the Zodiac. (In practice, an "orb of aspect" of 8 - 10 degrees is still considered a valid conjunction.)
