The evaluation of our efforts and the way towards a radical purging in our lives.
Practical responses motivated by emotional or nurturing intentions of life. The need to see results, to commit, to showcase our work, , to cultivate the structure for solid long-term goals through care and the creative dimension of who we are.
The Sun represents where we give and the Moon where we receive. The Moon is illuminated by the Sun in the phase of the Full Moon.

The Sun in Cancer motivates the Moon in Capricorn to work, to do something practical and useful, to set a goal, or to cultivate structures and tools, test things out. It is a Full Moon with seriousness and substance that crystallizes something within us with conscience and realism. The basic need emphasised by this Full Moon is to manifest results, to give something of ours that is appreciated and recognised in the tangible world. Continue reading
