The Full Moon in Capricorn arrives on July 13 at 2:38 p.m. EST bringing a wave of contemplation and a time of restructuring. When the moon is full in Capricorn, this resilient Earth sign is opposite the Sun in Cancer, a sensitive water sign. This Capricorn-Cancer axis is concerned with security, foundation, and the tension between outer material success and emotional safety. This moon is also known as the Full Buck Moon, named after the season when the male deer’s antlers are fully grown.
As we come into our own season of growth, we must think: Have we sacrificed one over the other? Are we building an empire on faulty foundations just because we have been “too busy” to heal, grieve, and face situations? Instead, have we adopted, “to push through?”
This moon inspires us to step back and understand that “pushing through” isn’t serving and that a deep course correction is at hand.
Capricorn is symbolized by the Boss Sea-Goat; this sign is known for its relentless dedication to materialistic gains and ambition. Ruled by Saturn, discipline, dedication, and commitment are its guiding principles.
The Full Moon is a time of integration and release and it’s a perfect time to go deep – roots deep! One seldom-known aspect of Capricorn is that it also speaks to our elders/ancestors. The foundations we build our lives on were first established by those that came before us. Sometimes we question, rebel, and often we carry on – unconsciously flowing in beliefs – ways of life or thinking that may have served their survival at some point but no longer serves us where we are now.
What ways of thinking or living have been passed down to me that no longer serve my life now? What traditions are timeless and call to be upheld to serve our lives’ purpose and lineage?
Pluto (transformer) is in the same sign as the Moon and brings profound change from our subconscious. The patterns and vibes you might have felt, but stuffed away from everyday awareness, now come to light. Relationships, situations, and cycles of life shift their form or structure; they may end, transform, or take on a new purpose.
Saturday, July 16 brings a blessed respite and good luck with Sun and Mercury, which is currently direct coming together in a cazimi. A cazimi is when a planet is in the “heart” or center of the Sun – it is one of the most auspicious signs in the skies.
We are more likely to receive downloads and clarity.
There is a trine with Sun (identity), Mercury (messenger), and Neptune (spirituality) on Sunday the 17th, bringing in a deep understanding of how to take care of ourselves and rework our definitions of power.
Remember to read your Sun, rising, and Moon sign for more well-rounded insights!

Leo (July 23-August 23)
This Full Moon lights up your sixth house of routines, health, and work. It invites you to take an honest look at how much overtime you’ve been putting in.

It’s time to breathe deeply, contemplate, and journal where you’ve been focusing your energy and take stock in work/life balance. While you may have all sorts of valid justifications for not claiming your “me” time, this moon says, “please, cuidate, because it’s time.” Chiron (wounded healer) and Jupiter (expansion) create a lovely trine and support more rest time. Loving yourself and saying “no” more often will bring you greater felicidad in the long run!
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
This Full Moon activates your fifth house of romance, creativity, and pleasure, inviting you to explore, along with Pluto’s (transformer) energy, the ways in which you may be holding back from allowing yourself more self-expression.

Focus on communicating with greater empathy and sensitivity – for yourself and others. Compassion begins con uno mismo!

This can be healing energy around home and family if honesty, boundaries, and compassion are called on to face las sombras!
