Capricorn MoonBox Ritual and Meditation


FULL MOON IN Capricorn

July 19, 2016

Planet: Saturn // Sign: Capricorn // Element: Earth

The Full Moon in Capricorn evokes a head-strong and heart-full energy of overcoming obstacles and rising to boisterous occasions with resilience. In order to fully experience this energy, we must embody a determined sense of will power, strength, and confidence to jump over the hurdles of life. Capricorn is a grounded sign that lives with fierce loyalty and dances with effortless grace.

The ruling planet that governs Capricorn is Saturn, a multi-faceted planet, boasting glowing rings that surround the planet like a protective shield or boundary. This structure is reflected as a need to understand and focus on the basic necessities in life that keep us feeling at ease and protected. Boundaries are a funny thing -- we have to set them in order to maintain a sense of safety, but we must not let them limit us. Reflect upon this time as an opportunity to recognize the healthy boundaries that exist in your life and choosing to let go of any limiting beliefs that may keep you from climbing to the highest peaks of your goals.

You may only be held back by the limits you create and protected by the boundaries you define.

Be resourceful, practical, and motivational with the Self. Remember, you are your own greatest asset, so value yourself for the glowing gem that you are! And never, ever let someone else make you feel otherwise. Leap with great strength, up and over anything that life might throw your way. Fill your heart with pride for your path and dedication to your Soul's journey... you are worth everything you desire.

11 SACRED STEPS

a guided meditation

1. Ground yourself.

Close your eyes and become one with the Earth beneath you.

2. Feel supported.

Feel into every part of your that is settled on the ground and imagine yourself melting into Mother Gaia's warm embrace.

3. Encourage growth.

Visualize roots, growing down deep into the soil, stemming from your very bones and expanding branches through you into into the sky above.

4. Vow to bravery.

From your heart, make a promise to yourself to remain boisterous, courageous, and resilient throughout your meditation, no matter what the mind throws your way.

5. Breathe in strength.

Imagine the breath charging this powerful intention with every inhale, like an illuminating source of support.

6. Become the Grace.

With every breath out, feel yourself become lighter as you create the space for Grace to marry your bravery, culminating in a deep sense of humility.

7. Commit to loyalty.

Reconfirm your promise or your dedication to all that is meaningful to you in this life.

8. Listen attentively.

Become quiet enough to hear your inner teacher offering you a message on this Full Moon. And ask yourself - What limit can you humbly shatter with your newly found intention of bravery, courage, and resolve? What boundary can you honor and respect?

9. Hear Truth.

Your truth can only be heard, felt, and known by you alone. Take as much time as you need to identify and define the limits that block you and the boundaries that protect you.

10. Honor your Heart.

Let your heart, your intention center continue to guide you, even if the mind starts to try to get in the way. Remember, you are the keeper of your own energy and energetic field - use it wisely.

11. Create Sacred Structure.

Take several cleansing breaths - in through the nose and out through the mouth, continuing to visualize your growth with each breath. See the space around you as a Sacred portal and shield. You control the energy that goes out, and the energy that comes in.

When you are ready, you may open your eyes and begin your Full Moon Ritual. Maintain the resolve you have built with this mediation by keeping your gaze steady and your focus sharp. This is your life, go ahead and define it how you see fit!

And, we wish you ease and joy in the process. Namaste.

'TIED TO YOUR HEART'

a Full Moon Ritual

As the Full Moon shines brightly in the grounding energy of Capricorn, it is inspiring us to open our minds to new perspectives in order to help us break down any limiting barriers. All the while, we are being not-so-gently encouraged, or pushed towards claiming a protective boundary or sense of structure.

The steadfast goat which represents the sign of Capricorn is an earthy trailblazer, concurring goals and shattering limits with dedication and conviction. However, the dark side of this sign is associated with guilt, shame, or fear that can be crippling in the face of challenges. In order to wade these deeply overshadowing emotions we must remind ourselves of WHY we are here, in this life, on this earth, in this universe. There is a balancing game that needs to take place as you contemplate. What beliefs do you cling to? What drives or motivates you? What limiting notions hold you back? What can you let go of to fully step into the boundlessness of your Soul, while maintaining a sense of safety for your delicate Spirit? These are the cosmic questions that will appear during this powerful Full Moon in Capricorn. And the honest truth is, only your deepest heart of hearts can answer these complicated questions. Yes, the questions will be complicated, but seek to make your answers simple.

Go with what you feel, rather than what you think you know.

Our lives are a compilation of all the things we’ve been taught by our parents, their parents, and their parents; our teachers, our friends, our lovers, and our enemies. All of this filters through us like a lens on the world. With this ritual, we will seek to remove the lens and see clearly with brave introspection.

Observe yourself through these influences, to understand what it is that serves our highest purpose, and what perhaps may be holding you back. While we are taught and influenced by others our whole lives, there comes a time for each of us where we must awaken our Sat Guru - our inner teacher with no more colored or predisposed lenses, just truth. And that time is now.

We have provided you with a bamboo stalk and two red strings. The bamboo represents YOU and your potential for growth. The strings represent one limiting belief we chose to release, and one protective boundary we chose to honor and respect. After completing your meditative 11 Sacred Steps, create an altar for your bamboo, offering it a new home that escalates it’s beauty in a space of light to support its growth. Feed it water until the roots are submerged completely. Feel free to add crystals or moss to adorn it’s home however you see fit. After all, it is a mirror image of you, so make it your own!

Once you have connected to and heard your inner teacher, tie your strings around the bamboo and let them serve as a reminder to honor your boundaries and dismiss any deep-seeded limits. With this, you are offering compassionate structure to self development with open-ended awareness to the potential of your life’s purpose.
