What this means for you...
Capricorn Sun, Cancer moon
The ultimate yab yum, or ying-yang scenario, The Sun, and moon connected in oneness with the earth. The sun in Capricorn, representing the father, the masculine, of the zodiacs.The moon in cancer, symbolizing the mother, the feminine, of the zodiacs. The earth, you, being the beating heart between the two. As the energy and the waters swell towards the end of the year, your body, mind, and spirit prepare for the secrecy of a potent new year, 2019.
Capricorn and Cancer are cardinal signs, they bring balance to each other.
Cancer is water, while Capricorn is the earth. The sun is absorbing the energy of Capricorn and then shining its light, its warmth, its passion down onto you. While the moon is releasing its energy, grabbing your focus, almost demanding that you focus inward.
Having the full moon in Cancer, with all its glory on the longest night of the year will have us all feeling deeply emotional. It's a time to be truthful about our feelings. 2019 has no time for bullshit and stories. We can no longer believe our own lies. This moon, this transitions, will illuminate your inner emotional, repressed, unrevealed feels. You might even be surrounded by friends and family and feel completely lonely. Remember any feeling of grief, sadness, isolation will pass, it is more about excepting your truth and moving to pass it.
Cancer is the mother of the zodiac, she allows a safe place for your joy and fears. She wants to hold you and nurture you, feed you from her supple breasts and encourage your growth. A cancer moon wants you to love and appreciate you, but even more so she wants you to love and appreciate yourself. Cancer moon wants you to look at your life, your home, your self-esteem, your safety, and those people that have authority over you. What is a full moon in cancer teaching you? Honestly, she wants you to grow, release your woes, your pain, and suffering. Be bold, be sexy, be confident, know that you are becoming stronger and you are all that is needed to be safe in the world.

Capricorn wants to ground itself and take planned action too manifest the powerful year of 2019. Capricorns wants to connect with the sensuality of life, wants to help you create a more fulfilling life. The sun in Capricorn wants to share its personal energy with you. It wants you to know that you are most powerful when you are independent and not searching for others approval. It says to be humble, while tough and resilient. A Capricorn sun reminds us that we can push through the most complicated path and use or voices to make know our truths. This is the time to sit down and plan, dream and make goals for 2019.
