Full Moon in Capricorn

Full Moon in Capricorn

In this lunar cycle, our Full Moon is on July 3 at 7:39 am EDT.
Hold on to your horses as this Full Moon is intense.
A Full Moon in Capricorn as its core, deals with themes around work, what we are responsible for, and what we have a duty to. It is our personal mountain that we must climb. Our Everest.

Capricorn, much like Virgo, has a goal in mind, an accomplishment or achievement, and it will steadily make its way up the mountainside to that golden finish line.
With a Full Moon, the Moon and Sun are opposite each other in the sky, creating tension for us to work with. This tension, this fullness, brings things to light.
During a Full Moon in Capricorn, the Moon is in Capricorn, but the Sun is in Cancer. While Capricorn is about work and achievements of the self, Cancer is focused on the home and family. This Full Moon is asking you where is your work/life balance off-center? Are you sacrificing the nurturing safety of home to climb your mountain faster? Or are you avoiding the climb by sticking close to your roots?

This Full Moon will feel intense for many, with unrealized emotions bubbling up to the surface. We'll all feel emotional and the theme is finding the balance between the world around us and the place we retreat to, or our home.

On top of those questions, we have a lot of cosmic activity churning up our emotional waters, thanks to the Sun in Cancer. The Moon today is opposite Mercury, square Chiron, and trine Jupiter. We may find ourselves caught up in our emotions and blurt out based on how we're feeling instead of thinking things through. For example, you may be in the conversation when you realize you're feeling jealous, or you could even make remarks that make your jealousy obvious to all those around you, thanks to the Moon opposite Mercury. The Moon and Sun both trine Saturn gives us a much needed grounding influence with this lunation, helping us approach our tasks and obligations with a sense of patience and rootedness. Moon square Chiron aggrivates our already sensitive emotions and we're easily triggered today, with emotions and past stories that we thought we had worked through coming back up again. We can (or witness others) become defensive and reactive, even volatile.

Finally, you'll want to look back to the last New Moon of 2022. It was on December 23 in the sign of Capricorn. During this New Moon, you sowed the seeds that have now finished growing. What intention did you set at that New Moon? How has it manifested and grown since then?

Some questions to ask yourself on this Full Moon:
  • What is your personal mountain/goal?

  • Do you have a plan to achieve it?

  • Is anything being sacrificed for you to get to the top of your mountain?
