“During this time the Moon in Capricorn faces the Sun in Cancer. Both signs are associated with security, yet they seek it indifferent ways. Capricorn is concerned with accomplishments and external changes while Cancer wants us to tune into our feelings in search of comfort and safety. It’s not a matter of choosing to be hard or soft, sensitive or insensitive; this Full Moon is about learning how to be tough or tender depending on the circumstances. When the lesson is learned, we feel at home within ourselves and within the world around us.”
"If Cancer brings us a sea of emotions, the Capricorn Full Moon brings us a boat to navigate each current and wave. This Full Moon provides stability and security when we need it the most. As an Earth sign, Capricorn’s energy grounds us, helping us connect with our body and breath. This Moon serves as a container to hold our emotions so we can explore them deeper without spilling them into places it doesn’t need to be. Instead, we can harness the power of our feelings to make decisions, move forward, and align with our life’s path. The Capricorn Full Moon wants us to feel just as much as the whole of Cancer Season. It just wants us to find meaning and power in those feelings.
Capricorn wants each of us to live a life of purpose. Your purpose is something that comes from deep within your soul. It is how you extend the roots of your being into the world. Capricorn is also associated with integrity. This energy wants us to show up in the world, standing firmly in our truth. It challenges us to be the same person no matter where we are, who we are with, or what situation arises. Furthermore, having integrity means we interact with the world consistently in a way that matches our core ideals and beliefs. When we are fully aligned with Capricorn, we live a purposeful life that resonates with our core values. We extend our truth into the world from a firm foundation rooted in the soul. We also understand that part of our life’s work is to find the truth of our being and fully understand who we are in this lifetime."

This practice is excerpted from the article "Claiming Right Alignment" by Lani Reagan, one of our intuitive readers at Paradise Found.
"There are many ways to align with your True Nature, including meditation, journaling, mindfulness, breathing, yoga, or practicing activities that create inner joy, and more.
My go-to tool is something you can use anywhere because it’s both an affirmation of who you Truly Are, and a means to facilitate an energetic dose of love, intelligence & power, when you need some immediate de-stress or realignment.
When to use this affirmation - I use it before I meditate to increase the downpour of spiritual energy that happens during meditation. I use it while I'm hiking and connecting with nature; sometimes I use it while doing house cleaning or errands. I use it when I feel a strong reaction arising within me, so I can keep my calm.
