Happy Summer! This is the first Full Moon following the Summer Solstice and the electrifying cosmic activity of the past two eclipses. This is the time of more light on planet Earth. If more light equals more information, then what are you learning? What is feeding your light body? It’s time to nurture your physical and emotional bodies. Spend more time in nature. Feel more sunlight on your body. Observe cloud formations. Watch beautiful sunsets. Notice the colors and scents of summer flowers. Listen to the birds sing. All of these things are the antidote to stress following the disorienting influence of last week’s Saturn/Uranus square. We are all feeling a bit of PTSD as we enter post covid reality. Be gentle with yourself and patient with others. This Full Moon has two very auspicious astrological aspects, as both the Sun and Moon are in positive alignment with Jupiter (see Planetary Aspects). This is the perfect time to “moon gaze” and recharge your psychic batteries. Gemstones, crystals, essential oils and healing herbs all work well with the Capricorn Moon’s grounding energy, and these precious gifts from nature help to improve overall health and longevity. Humans are the caretakers of Mother Earth, and we begin by caring for our own bodies!

FULL MOON IN CAPRICORN JUNE 24, 2021:
All Full Moons are about illumination; bringing forth into consciousness what has been nurtured in the unconscious. During this Full Moon, the Sun is in the opposite sign of Cancer. This Full Moon is all about balancing Capricorn leadership with Cancerian compassion; masculine power with feminine sensitivity. When the Moon falls in the Earth sign of Capricorn it signifies our connection to Mother Earth, our traditions, our ancestral lineage, and family roots (for better or worse). This polarity signifies the archetypal Mother/Father, male/female axis in astrology. The theme of power vs. compassion takes on archetypal proportions. During a full moon important interactions with women are likely.
The sign of Capricorn has to do with father figures, authorities and the patriarchy, in general. Capricorn is all about boundaries, limits, and structure in our lives. It is time to ground your energy and get serious about manifesting and your ideas and dreams into practical reality. How does the 19-year eclipse cycle fit into your life patterns? What was going on for you back in 2002? Have you fulfilled your own expectations? If not, it is never too late to revive and nurture them. Capricorn is the sign that most favors “late –bloomers”. Patience is the Key that unlocks the Capricorn vault of treasures.
If you have Capricorn Sun, Moon or Ascendant, this is a very important Full Moon for you. You may be in the process of an emotional overhaul. Letting go of the old memories and long held belief systems that no longer serve you will actually help to clarify your goals now. Look to nineteen years ago (2002) for a closure or completion in one major area of life. Capricorn grounds us in physicality; it allows us to build a solid foundation for the future.
Capricorn is the sign of business first, emotions second. As children young Capricorns are often taught a “no non-sense” approach to life and instructed to ignore their emotional needs. Capricorn is the sign of Mastery, and Saturn is its ruler. Self-control and self-discipline are two of Capricorn’s most important attributes, but taken to extremes, these can lead to emotional withdrawal and isolation. It can be lonely at the top of the mountain! It is important during this Full Moon to nurture your relationships and feel gratitude for the love in your life. Capricorn is the quintessential Earth sign; mountains, rocky terrain, forests and glades are its primal sources of energy. Even if you feel you are alone, you can still feel a connection to the Earth through nature, plants, and animals; stones and crystals can become your allies and guides. Gemstones that work particularly well with Capricorn energy are Garnet, Malachite, Black Tourmaline, Green Tourmaline, and Chrysocolla. Problems with bones (especially knees) teeth and skin may come up with a Full Moon in Capricorn. Epsom salt baths, as well as hot stone massage are an excellent way to ease into the Capricorn energy.
Sun in Cancer Trine Jupiter in Pisces: This is one of the best astrological aspects the universe can bestow. A major shift in consciousness is possible now. Both the Sun and Jupiter are in water signs showing that emotional healing is possible. If you are a water sign, this is a particularly good aspect for you, but everyone can benefit from it. Jupiter is called “the Great Benefactor” of the Cosmos. It’s not about putting on rose-colored glass, but an inner knowing that you can trust in the universe and all will be well. This is a time when your faith in yourself is restored, your dreams dusted off, and you have a more optimistic view of your reality. Feel the universal waves of energy moving in a more positive direction, and just flow with it. Relying on your intuition and gut feelings now, rather than cold, hard logic may improve results. However, do not get swept up in emotions that do not belong to you. It is important to maintain emotional boundaries with Cancer and Pisces energy. Also, since Jupiter always expands what it touches news about water, oceans, flooding, etc. may be more apparent.
Moon Capricorn Sextile Jupiter in Pisces: This is another very positive aspect signifying more compassion, generosity, and emotional expression than the Capricorn Moon is generally known for. Usually, the Moon shows that your feelings regarding important women in your life, your self-nurturing tendencies, and your emotional security. There is a universal sense of “doing the right thing”, rather than lashing out with destruction or violence. This can also be seen in the collective consciousness as a desire for peace, rather than agitation. Women (the Moon in Capricorn) in world politics (Jupiter) may take on a more vocal role advocating non-violence and global compassion (Pisces).
Jupiter in Pisces, Saturn in Aquarius and Pluto in Capricorn Retrograde: With three of the major planets plus Mercury retrograde (see below), it is a time to go deep, dig through our personal archives and see what lessons we need to repeat, redo, or relearn from late December of last year. On a personal level, certain problems that you thought were resolved may come up again. Re-thinking the solution may be in order. Wherever the signs of Pisces, Aquarius and Capricorn fall in your chart will tell the narrative. Whenever the outer planets move into retrograde motion, there are massive changes in collective consciousness. A huge tidal wave of cosmic energy is shifting ….where and how do we go from here??
Mercury Stationery Direct in Gemini: Finally a big sigh of relief after June 22nd as Mercury moves forward again in the sign of Gemini. Contracts, documents meetings, sales and communications that have been on hold for the last month move forward now.
MOON IN CAPRICORN TRINE URANUS IN TAURUS: This positive aspect can bring some unexpected, but pleasant surprises, especially in the areas of material security and finances. As with all trines, it is important to remain open to new possibilities and keep a positive outlook. As previously mentioned, the Moon is also in a positive aspect with Jupiter, so your financial picture may improve, especially if you are one of the earth signs .A long-standing debt may be paid or removed; or there may money coming in from an unexpected source.
