“If when my wife is sleeping
and the baby and Kathleen
and the sun is a flame-white disc
in silken mists
above shining trees,-
if I in my north room
dance before my mirror
waving my shirt round my head
and singing softly to myself:
“I am lonely, lonely,
I was born to be lonely,
I am best so!”
Who shall say I am not
the happy genius of my household?” William Carlos Williams
“Today i feel centered, and time is a friend instead of an enemy. I am happy to be alone- time to think, time to be.” May Sarton
This month’s Full Moon – exact on Thursday June 28 in the wee hours of EDT, is at 6 degrees of Capricorn. The forces of Saturn are strong at this time as Saturn is conjunct the Moon and opposite the Sun. It bodes well under these influences to take a look at how you content you are with the limitations imposed on your life – both self imposed as well as those imposed by others and the outer world and see if adjustments are necessary.
Saturn can provide the guard rails – i.e. the kind of boundaries you need to flourish personally and succeed in your personal aspirations. But imbalances of Saturn – not enough protection or too much restriction – can be problematic. It’s wise periodically – particularly under these kinds of influences- to revisit this territory if necessary.
The Saturn/Sun and Saturn/Moon combinations are associated with loneliness and feeling alone in the world. People who have these placements in their birth charts have often always felt this way.
This is a serious Full Moon and a time of culmination.
Venus is inconjunct Neptune now and Isabelle Hickey referred to this placement as a kind of longing that nothing on the material plane can fulfill. This aspect is often present in the charts of artists and spiritual seekers.
Mars is retrograde and conjunct the South Node. The pull of unproductive habits can be strong now. This placement can also bring people with whom you have unresolved or karmic relationships back into your life.
It’s wise to stay within the guard rails.
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”Ten logs lie under an archway leading to darker woods.”
