Capricorn season is on and interestingly I’ve been seeing a few different posts on social media advising never to give up or stating that there is never the “right time”, it’s all about forcing your way through.
I understand that cultivating will power and determination can be empowering, especially for the strong Capricorn/Saturnian people out there.
But my intuition says that there is a fine line between the positive and the more shadowy manifestations of it.
I feel that many of the transformative lessons reflected by current Pluto transiting Capricorn is somehow connected with the other end of the axis, Cancer and self-care.
Cancer is the astrological sign that I mostly connected with the archetype of the great mother, it is ruled by the Moon which, in the sky, is our most obvious reflection of natural cycles and changes.
It’s no news that the 28 days cycle of the Moon resonates with the 28 days of the female cycle.
Every month it reminds us that we also wax and wane, and that expecting to be productive and strong willed every day is unrealistic and potentially damaging.
How many years, I, oblivious to my cyclic nature, have felt guilty and tried forcing activity when what I needed most was resting and paying attention to my inner visions.
Same about seasons.
How many fruits can you reap during winter time, when the trees are resting and concentrating energy in its roots under the ground?!
We are not machines, we also need our restful phases and I do believe that, like everything in the natural world, there is a right time to do things.
Reconnecting with our intuition, the feminine within, will provide us with guidance. But for that to happen, we need to learn how to shut our overly busy minds up and listen to our body.
