The Full Moon in Capricorn at 1° on June 21st shines a spotlight on the delicate balance between our personal and professional lives, emphasizing goals, emotions, and achievement.

Occurring at the cusp of the summer solstice, this lunation invites us to deeply evaluate our long-term goals, responsibilities, and ambitions, encouraging a harmonious blend between our career aspirations and emotional fulfillment. As the Moon reaches its fullest point in Capricorn, a sign known for its discipline, structure, and ambition, we are called to recognize our achievements, reassess our paths, and make necessary adjustments to ensure that our pursuits align with our true desires and values.

Capricorn, ruled by Saturn, represents the archetype of the responsible adult, the diligent worker, and the pragmatic planner. Its energy is methodical, persistent, and deeply rooted in the material world. Under the influence of a Full Moon in Capricorn, we are urged to take a sober look at our ambitions and the structures we have built in our lives. This is not a time for frivolity or escapism but rather a moment for serious contemplation and strategic planning. The Full Moon illuminates both our successes and our shortcomings, providing clarity on what needs to be done to achieve our long-term objectives.

This particular Full Moon is especially potent as it is the first of two consecutive Full Moons in Capricorn, the second occurring on July 21st at 29° of Capricorn. This rare occurrence bookends a month-long period of intense focus on Capricorn themes shining a spotlight on the delicate balance between our personal and professional lives, emphasizing goals, emotions, and achievement. 

The initial Full Moon at 1° marks the beginning of this cycle, encouraging us to lay the groundwork for the transformative work ahead. At 1°, the energy is fresh and initiatory, inviting us to set new intentions and to approach our goals with renewed vigor and determination.

As the Full Moon shines a light on the Capricorn-Cancer axis, it emphasizes the balance between our outer achievements and our inner emotional landscape. Cancer, the sign opposite Capricorn, governs our home, family, and emotional security. While Capricorn drives us to climb the proverbial mountain of success, Cancer reminds us to nurture ourselves and those we love. This Full Moon asks us to find equilibrium between these two domains, ensuring that our professional ambitions do not come at the expense of our personal well-being.

One of the key themes of this Full Moon is the recognition of achievements. 

Capricorn's influence encourages us to take stock of our accomplishments, however small they may seem. This is a time to celebrate the milestones we have reached and to acknowledge the hard work and perseverance that got us there. It is also an opportunity to evaluate whether our current trajectory aligns with our long-term goals. Are we satisfied with the direction we are heading, or do we need to make adjustments? The clarity provided by the Full Moon can help us answer these questions honestly and objectively.

The energy of Capricorn is also about taking responsibility. This Full Moon prompts us to consider the responsibilities we have taken on and whether they serve our highest good. Are we overburdened by duties that drain our energy and detract from our true purpose? It is essential to recognize where we may need to set boundaries or delegate tasks to create a more sustainable balance in our lives. Capricorn's pragmatic nature supports us in making practical changes that can lead to greater efficiency and effectiveness in our endeavors.

Another important aspect of this Full Moon is its call for making necessary adjustments. As we reflect on our goals and responsibilities, we may realize that certain strategies or approaches are no longer working. This is a time for course correction, for letting go of outdated methods, and for embracing new ways of thinking and doing. Capricorn's influence encourages us to be strategic and methodical in our approach, ensuring that any changes we implement are well-considered and likely to yield positive results.

The Capricorn Full Moon's timing, coinciding with the summer solstice, adds an extra layer of significance to this event. The solstice marks the peak of the solar year, a time of maximum light and energy. This amplifies the Full Moon's power, making it an even more potent moment for illumination and insight. The solstice also symbolizes a turning point, a time when the energy begins to shift, and we start to prepare for the gradual return of darkness. This can be seen as a metaphor for the inner work we are called to do under the Full Moon's influence—shedding light on our shadows, understanding our motivations, and preparing for the transformative journey ahead.

As we move towards the second Full Moon in Capricorn on July 21st at 29°, the themes initiated by this first Full Moon will continue to develop and deepen. The second Full Moon, occurring at the anaretic degree (the 29th degree), signifies a culmination and a point of transition. It will be a time to fully integrate the lessons learned and to solidify the changes made during this period. The energy will be more intense and focused, pushing us to complete the work we started and to prepare for a new phase of growth and evolution.

In summary, the Full Moon in Capricorn at 1° on June 21st is a powerful moment for introspection and recalibration. It encourages us to evaluate our long-term goals and responsibilities, to recognize our achievements, and to make necessary adjustments to align our ambitions with our emotional fulfillment. As the first of two Full Moons in Capricorn, it sets the stage for a month of deep reflection and strategic planning, culminating in the second Full Moon at 29°. By embracing the disciplined and pragmatic energy of Capricorn, we can create a solid foundation for future success while ensuring that our personal well-being is not neglected. This Full Moon in Capricorn invites us to set goals, calm emotions, find balance, to take responsibility, and to move forward with clarity and purpose.

We also have the Lunar Gestation Cycle attached to each of these Full Moons. I will address the current Full Moon now, covering the July Full Moon Gestation Cycle in July.


New Moon: December 23, 2022, at 1° Capricorn

First Quarter: September 22, 2023, at 29° Sagittarius

The New Moon on December 23, 2022, at 1° Capricorn marked the beginning of the lunar cycle. This phase is characterized by new beginnings, setting intentions, and planting the seeds for future growth. Capricorn's energy infuses this New Moon with themes of ambition, discipline, and long-term planning. It is an ideal time to focus on career goals, personal responsibilities, and building solid foundations for future success. The intentions set during this New Moon are likely to be grounded, practical, and aimed at achieving tangible results.

As the cycle progresses, it reaches its First Quarter on September 22, 2023, at 29° Sagittarius. The First Quarter phase 9 months after the new moon, is a time of action and decision-making.

The seeds planted during the New Moon are now beginning to take root, and challenges or obstacles may arise that require adjustments and perseverance. Sagittarius' influence during this phase adds a sense of adventure, optimism, and a broader perspective. It encourages us to expand our horizons, embrace new opportunities, and stay focused on our long-term vision while overcoming any hurdles that come our way. This phase is crucial for assessing progress and making necessary changes to stay on course toward our goals.

Both phases prior to the Full Moon are part of the larger Lunar Gestation Cycle, which spans approximately nine months for each phase and totaling 3 years from start to finish. This cycle highlights the unfolding and development of intentions set during the New Moon, with each phase bringing its own unique energy and focus, guiding us through a journey of growth, challenge, and eventual fulfillment.
