Family vs. Career
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.
Finding the balance ... again
Basically the scales have tipped to the point of excessive focus in your public life ... and so the awareness now emerges that you need to devote more time to your family relationships, home conditions, and private interests.
Once again, you need to find a point of balance between what could be two full time occupations -- an obviously impossible condition to meet. But finding ways to compromise between your public demands and your private loves and reach an acceptable situation for each is your task now as you look for ways to satisfy both without slighting either.
For each sign, this brings a time of development and greater attention to a specific area of your life. Learn more with information specific to you and your Natal Chart with a subscription to our Premium Membership
