The Full Moon in Capricorn perfects Monday Morning at 6:45 am MDT, 5:45 am PDT, 7:45 CDT, 8:45 am EDT and 9:45 ADT. This is the most sober of the Full Moons- the one time of year we have a Full Moon in its sign of detriment. Emotions aren’t easily expressed with the Moon in Capricorn- emotions are something to be managed rather than felt.
When the full Moon is in Capricorn, there is a focus on responsibilities, career matters, and long-term goals. During this Full Moon, there may be a heightened sense of ambition and a drive to succeed. It can be a time to evaluate progress, assess your professional or personal goals, and make necessary adjustments to achieve them. This Full Moon emphasizes the need for structure, organization, and hard work.
Capricorn’s influence encourages a practical and realistic approach to life, urging you to take practical steps towards your ambitions. It’s an opportune time to seek balance between your personal and professional life, and to ensure that you’re investing your time and energy into what truly matters to you. The commitments you make are important now, especially think about how you want to use your time- choose tasks that will be the most productive and also satisfying.
We don’t have any planets in air, and other than the brief transits of the Moon, this won’t change until Mars moves into Libra at the end of August. Remember to take time to breathe, let the wind blow through your hair- any way you can increase air flow will help lighten things up. Before Mars enters Libra, we get to enjoy a month and a half of Mars in Virgo (July 10th – August 28th). July 10th is a pivotal day in July as we have Mars moving from fire into earth and Mercury shifting from water to fire.
Mars in Virgo combines the assertive and active nature of Mars with the practical and analytical qualities of Virgo, an earth sign associated with detail-oriented thinking, organization, and efficiency. When Mars is in Virgo we can access more self-discipline and focused on goals. We can approach work and daily routines with more dedication and determination, striving for excellence in what we do. We may be more inclined towards health and wellness, as well as a desire for tidiness and order.
On the flip side, Mars in Virgo can sometimes lead to tendencies of perfectionism or becoming overly critical, both towards ourselves and others. We may set high standards and expectations, which can create a sense of pressure or self-criticism. Learning to balance a drive for perfection with self-acceptance and compassion is important during this transit.
As this is a Full Moon – a time of release- are there any time wasters you can get rid of? What can you release in order to be more effective? Be kind to yourself. xo
