Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others (Marianne Williamson, born with Full Moon in Capricorn)

The Moon is full in Capricorn at 22:56 GMT on 19 July 2016.

Sun in Cancer and Moon in Capricorn bring about a major capacity of initiative between two natures operating in distinct fields, which can either cause extreme tension or manifest amazing creative achievements.

Cancer and Capricorn are both cardinal signs, which are those placed at the four cardinal points of the compass and indicate the start of each season. They represent the active and leading temperament, what sets the sense of direction. Hence, the urge for action and expression is strongly emphasized in this Full Moon. If we are confused or in conflict regarding our sense of direction, tension and issues may develop during these days. Yet, this same tension, once it is unveiled, can draw empowering energy and promote significant developments, if we have the courage to embrace our authentic calling, regardless of what the majority of people think and do.

The qualities of both Cancer and Capricorn build up, gathering and concentrating energy aimed at prompt creative expression. The Cancer part promotes protection, care and security while the Capricorn element emphasises responsibility, discipline, ambition and the implementation of pragmatic intentions.
