Lot's happening in the world arena, both secular and spiritual. Astrology has never been so interesting (to me). On Tuesday, July 3, the Full Moon in Capricorn opposes the Sun in Cancer. This speaks to balance between home and public life. Celestial oppositions of Sun and Moon can affect our personal lives and the political climate worldwide.
Cancer wants us to be homebodies and pay attention to our immediate family. Capricorn is about more wide-spread responsibilities and influences our career, sense of duty, and public life.
If you are a Cancer or Capricorn, or have these signs strongly indicated in your chart, you might be having a tug of war between what you want and what you think you "should" do. You might want to stay home but are forced into a career or public life that takes you away from home. It could be just the opposite. You might be pursuing a public life or career and be forced to pay more attention to what's happening at home.
Oppositions always demand a compromise. We must find a way to do both without completely sacrificing one or the other. This can play out on the personal or global scale.

This won't be resolved anytime soon, but it is a comfort to know that if astrology has anything to say about it, eventually, a middle ground will be struck to solve many of our problems.
