With the last of the Cancer-Capricorn eclipses behind us, this is the first Full Moon in Capricorn that is not an eclipse since 2009. Full moons signify the completion, culmination of what may have been initiated during the previous New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Cancer which offered us the chance to face our realities and rise up to the challenges ahead (square to Saturn), without losing sight on what gives us hope and healing (links to Jupiter and Chiron).

The Moon represents our heart, emotions, private life, inner drives, and is natively governed by sensitive and nurturing Cancer. In Capricorn, the zodiac sign opposite Cancer, the Moon feels emotionally restricted but focused on the tasks at hand. This Full Moon in Capricorn encourages us to acknowledge our realities, face our fears, and rise above them without losing our openness to love and compassion along the way. Let's not become jaded or calloused because of the hardships we've lived through and continue to face.

This Full Moon occurs on July 14 at 11:40 p.m. (Pacific) / July 15 at 2:40 a.m. (Eastern) at 23° of Capricorn. Those born within 3 days of July 14 and January 12 or with natal planets and/or house angles near 23° degrees of cardinal signs may feel the effects of this full moon stronger than others.
