Welcome! Thank you for joining me for a closer look at the lunar cycles. Rising sign horoscopes can be found at the end, but first–
What is a Full Moon? A Full Moon is when our two luminaries, the Sun and the Moon, are in opposing signs, at the same degree. The Full Moons complete cycles that began back at the New Moon in the same sign. This is where those new beginnings and opportunities presented 6 months before begin to bring results or culminate in some way. The sky is full with the harvest of any actions and creations made before. They may also bring intense periods of release, information and secrets revealed, or cathartic purging. These are times of heightened emotion with the two weeks following acting as a recovery and active integration period. The next 6 months after a Full Moon is a period of background integration so that we can begin again at the next New Moon in this sign with a clean slate.
For this particular lunar cycle, something is culminating in the two weeks surrounding the Full Moon in Capricorn on July 3rd that began back at the New Moon in Capricorn on December 23rd 2022
Sometimes a Full Moon theme is obvious– say you are quitting a job or graduating from college around a Full Moon, this is your Full Moon story. Sometimes the themes aren't obvious at all because something is culminating internally or you simply have to know where to look for the culmination.
This is the purpose that I am hoping these horoscopes will serve– a direction, guidance, and affirmation that you are aligned in your path. And, of course, I hope these are entertaining for you as well. I invite you all to utilize the comment section at the bottom to ask questions about things that are confusing or to share your thoughts about accuracy.
The Full Moon in Capricorn perfects on July 3rd at 6:38am CST. The Sun in Cancer and the Moon in Capricorn are both at 11º
The Major Aspects:
• Sun-Moon at 11º Cancer/Capricorn sextile/trine Jupiter at 9º Taurus (2º orb, separating)
• Sun at 11º Cancer conjunct Mercury at 14º Cancer (3º orb, separating from a cazimi)
• Sun-Moon at 11º Cancer/Capricorn trine/sextile Saturn at 7º Pisces (4º orb, separating)
• Venus at 22º Leo conjunct Mars at 25º Leo (3º orb)
• Mercury at 14º Cancer sextile Jupiter at 9º Taurus (5º orb, separating)
Additional Chart Features:
• Pluto has just re-entered Capricorn and is in retrograde motion co-present with the Moon
• The Sun answers to the Moon
• The Moon is in mutual reception and is sextile to Saturn (its ruler).
I can't stop thinking about the 3 of pentacles as a representation of this Full Moon as it is in the Mars decan of Capricorn. While this is the Moon's detriment, the Moon is trine Jupiter in Taurus and both sextile to and in mutual reception with Saturn in Pisces, the ruler of this Moon. The word "collaboration" comes to mind, though it may not be with other people for all of us. This is collaboration of ingredients, of instruments, of words. Whatever arises during the cazimi will be important to the chapters culminating, there is much wisdom available to us. Saturn in Pisces as the lunation's ruler has something it wants us to understand, but we can only do so when we drift out to sea by ourselves (even while it has probably been lonely– sometimes this is the only way we can hear ourselves).
The panic one must feel when they were once floating on a raft close to shore and they suddenly open their eyes to find they are in the middle of the ocean. This is what Saturn in Pisces has felt like. Drifting, drifting so far into ourselves or maybe into no man's land, we've become distracted, and now we don't know how to find the living again. Remember that this is completing a cycle that began with the New Moon in Capricorn on December 23rd of 2022. Whatever seemed uncharted at that time is now making a bit more sense.
With any Capricorn Full Moon, these are typically when the binds loosen, we have a little bit more freedom, a little bit more leash in some area. As stiff as we find Capricorn to be, it is ruled by a planet of ancient wisdom. Let yourself be found in anima. Feel the soul of the world and watch as the karmic binds drop.
Bonatti says, "Reception abates all malice," if release is happening somewhere (and it probably is), it feels like a weight lifted, a relief. The thing is, Saturn still has another year and a half to go in Pisces, so any feelings of being lost, confused, or lonely are likely to stay, but you may start to understand the "why" behind it all. This is a productive Moon. Capricorn knows how to produce results and I think we might like the culminations we see right now. A warning though, our minds may be reeling from the Mercury cazimi with new insight, but at the time of this Moon, Mercury is combust. Communicating is more challenging during combustion, it can feel like we're not able to say what we want, how we want. Paired with the Moon opposing Mercury, we may have a hard time communicating gently. This feels like, "I need to say xyz but how do I do that without hurting someone's feelings." It's possible that boundaries are needing to be communicated, and even though it's a freeing, beautiful thing, some courage is needed.
Courage is the theme of Venus so close to Mars in Leo, but remember that Mars is leaving Venus behind so she can deal with her retrograde period. (Much like how a man clears the room when his partner is PMSing). Anything that comes up at the Full Moon and in the weeks surrounding is going to come back up for review. Now isn't the time for rash decisions, you might regret them later however, it's a bit different if you've thought this through.
This makes me think of the other aspect of the Mars in Capricorn decan and the 3 of pentacles– it's collaboration, but it also takes effort for Capricorn (and Mars) to be a collaborator. It's like someone who is used to doing all of the work for their group projects at school being paired with the two other kids in the class that typically carry the weight in their own group projects. It's awkward, it's harder to work with others when you have your own system. So, those chains falling away? Yeah, it may take some boundary setting, effort, compromise, all of those mature Capricorn things, in order to be free. Saturn makes us work for our freedom.
The good news? If we handle this the right way, Jupiter is rewarding us. I mean, the three smartest, most capable people in the class all collaborating? You know it's going to be a very well done presentation with all the As. This is just a metaphor of course, unless you have relational houses affected (3rd, 7th, 11th), that collaboration could be with anything.
Some questions to ask yourself this Full Moon: Where have I forgotten to set boundaries and how can this be corrected now? Where do I feel the most restricted and is this something that I am eternally bound to? Or is there something that can be done to remediate this? Is this a result of embodying pacifism or optimism? Don't be discouraged if your optimism has gotten you in trouble, mystery and positivity is something we need in order to keep going. Don't allow faith to falter in the presence of a challenge. Where am I expecting things to be instantaneous when more time and grace is needed? Have I become impatient with something that is best served by slow effort? Am I being a team player? Am I allowing myself to be bulldozed by my collaborators? How can I speak up for myself now without blaming myself or others? Where have I been immature or expectant?
Rising sign Horoscopes:
*keep in mind that the most accurate predictions come from the personal birth chart. If something does not resonate it is because while this is a more personal horoscope, it is still not personalized and tailored to you and your life.
Hi, Aries! Happy Full Moon. Let's breakdown this lunation. *Keep in mind that Full Moon themes are most obvious for 2 weeks after and work more subconsciously for 6 months after. You are completing a 6 month cycle!
- The Sun and Mercury are conjunct in your 4th house opposite the Moon in your 10th house trine Jupiter in your 2nd house. Saturn, this lunation's ruler, is in your 12th house mutually receiving the Moon by sextile.
- Venus and Mars are in Leo in your 5th house close to a conjunction.
This Full Moon is ending a cycle that started back in December, especially connected to the home and career. The 10th house is a lot more than just career and your goals though, I actually find it to be one of the most dynamic houses. This is often what you feel your purpose is or the vehicle that you drive to fulfilling purpose. Our purpose is bigger than just our career, though it can encompass this for sure. This is also the place you might move to, the relationships you find yourself in, the boss you work under. These people and places are all supporting characters on your journey to fulfillment. The 10th house is like a tagline, what we see on the surface.
If I were to sum up someone's life in a sentence it might say "They were renowned for their successful business, their loving wife, and their 5 children," but nothing about that sentence tells us who they were, what their family was really like, what their story was. These are things found in the 4th house– yes, the house of home, but also the house of the inner world.
Instead, maybe it's "They had a successful business after years of building, learning, and wondering if they were even good enough. They learned hard lessons around consistency and the value of boundaries that lead to the business they have today." Or "They got married three times before finding "the one," they tried to partner with people before truly knowing who they were. It wasn't until they had taken time to grow in maturity that they found someone who also met them in their maturity. They have a loving wife, but she is her own person with her own mind before a wife and this is why it works." You get the point, Aries.
You are assessing both the surface and what is below it. What is it what you want on the surface? Have you considered what that will entail? What that will demand from you? You may be having some epiphanies about value, about what your goals need from you. It's possible that you are seeing a pay raise at this time, but if not, you are considering how money motivates you (and whether this is a good thing or not).
You could be moving at this time or maybe you already moved (or made other big life changes in the realm of Big Life Stuff– marriage, a new job, etc.) 6 months ago and you are finally settling into what it takes to maintain it all. Saturn transiting the 12th house is trying to teach you about spiritual, mental, and emotional maintenance and how you manage it all when everyone else has gone home or when the doors are shut to the public. This is a time where you might be reassessing the precedent already set and if you have the capacity to maintain it. It is important that you are speaking up, but being gentle when you do so.
Venus and Mars are so close they can almost taste each other! I wonder if some of you are thinking about children– having them, what to do within your child's life and how to parent them properly. If you don't have kids, you might be experiencing themes around your dating and sex life or perhaps your sense of enjoyment or fun with something. Whatever the case, this is about responsibility (the Full Moon in Capricorn) and how that affects your relationships, your joy, your kids. Some of you are not being truly seen by your romantic connections, some of you have conflicting love languages with others, some might feel like you want your kids to succeed, but you aren't considering what their version of success looks like. All of you likely have wounds around letting your art and joy be seen by the world. It doesn't matter. Let go of the noise and responsibility and focus on the feeling. Don't just do what you think is right, do what you feel is best.
Let me know how this Full Moon goes for you! My personal books are open for the month of July if you need help processing and problem solving.
Hi, Taurus! Happy Full Moon. Let's breakdown this lunation. *Keep in mind that Full Moon themes are most obvious for 2 weeks after and work more subconsciously for 6 months after. You are completing a 6 month cycle!
- The Sun and Mercury are conjunct in your 3rd house opposite the Moon in your 9th house trine Jupiter in your 1st house. Saturn, this lunation's ruler, is in your 11th house mutually receiving the Moon by sextile.
- Venus and Mars are in Leo in your 4th house close to a conjunction.
This Full Moon is ending a cycle that started back in December, especially connected to learning, communicating, and exploration. With Capricorn on your 9th house, you have a harder time with discovery and travel. I mean, you're a Taurus! This is part of what earns you this stubborn archetype, you have the sign of restriction and late blooming on the 9th house of development and immersion. This is a house that shows us all of the cultures of the world, the belief systems outside of our own, foreign places and traditions unlike ours. Taurus usually has intense cultural or religious programming due to the deeply ancient nature of Saturn. Your knowledge lies in the very soul of the world, the traditions of your family and lineage. That doesn't mean you don't love to explore other forms of knowledge (in fact, there are many other personal aspects and planets in the birth chart that would tell us how open you actually are), but whatever the case, the development that you go through will always first meet the lens of the ancestral one passed down to you.
For example, I know a Taurus rising who is Indian with very close ties to her own language and culture. Everything that she explores will always come face to face first with her attachment to Indian wisdom and customs. This is not a bad thing by any means, but with Jupiter in your 1st house trine to the Full Moon, it is possible that you are experiencing an expansion of your knowledge at this time. Even with the attachments you already have built in, you may begin to see and experience life differently due to a perception shift. Whatever this is, it has a hand in a new personality and image emerging over the next year. Some of you could be graduating from school or a certification program, traveling, or adopting new belief systems at this time. I can't help but to feel that you'll be liberated by whatever you are completing now.
The Sun and Mercury are in your 3rd house, so I imagine that communication, perception, as well as friends, siblings, peers, or social media could play a part in this all. If you are a business owner, you may be completing or debuting something connected to marketing. It is possible that you are rebranding, putting out a podcast, or something to do with publishing at this time. You may also be traveling to see family right now or to scout a prospective move. With Saturn in mutual reception to this Moon you may feel like something you've been planning, envisioning, or creating is finally culminating right now– especially if you have been working toward this for a long time. It could be that a new group or community has created this avenue for expansion and understanding of yourself.
If there is a more solemn mood attached to this time for you, it's likely because of conflicting beliefs, disagreements due to a difference in perspective and background (especially with friends, groups, community members, or even family). If this is the case, try a different approach, communicate gently even while setting boundaries.
Mars and Venus are in your 4th house, Venus is her pre-shadow period already. It is possible that you are reviewing your inner world, the home and what your living situation is like, or what your family has previously instilled within you. It is important that you are asserting what you believe in above all– above family values, above friend's opinions, above what you've been taught in school. Act from what you believe in. If you are making a long distance move, just make sure that you've fully scouted it out and have thought it through.

Hi, Gemini! Happy Full Moon. Let's breakdown this lunation. *Keep in mind that Full Moon themes are most obvious for 2 weeks after and work more subconsciously for 6 months after. You are completing a 6 month cycle!
- The Sun and Mercury are conjunct in your 2nd house opposite the Moon in your 8th house trine Jupiter in your 12th house. Saturn, this lunation's ruler, is in your 10th house mutually receiving the Moon by sextile.
- Venus and Mars are in Leo in your 3rd house close to a conjunction.
This Full Moon is ending a cycle that started back in December, especially connected to money, investments, shared spaces, contracts, intimacy, and personal transformation. It is possible that you are completing a contract, moving out of a shared space, or are no longer receiving financial support from somewhere in particular. This is something that likely has its pros and cons just like anything– say for example, you receive more freedom, but perhaps less income as a result. Or more time on your hands, but more room for boredom too. You are really transforming your goals and what you think personal fulfillment looks like at this time. Saturn is trying to help you figure out what you want for your life, for your legacy, and in reception to the Moon, I imagine that you are plucking out what no longer fits within this.
Maybe your values have changed. What you want to be spending your energy on, your time on, your money on, these are things that have influence over your decisions and what you may be getting rid of at this time. You could be cleaning out your closet, getting rid of something old and replacing it with something new (like maybe a new phone or a furniture piece that has a deeply ancient lifespan), whatever the case, you're digging deep and changing the way things are being done. "Making room" is a phrase that comes to mind. I could also see Geminis changing jobs in a way that significantly affects your personal or shared income and your state of mind. Leaving a toxic environment is possible, just make sure that you maintain your integrity and maturity because it could have some negative influences on your reputation later if you're not doing it by the book.
This is something that Saturn is trying to teach you as well, your actions are not private. Just because they might happen behind closed doors? These things still have real world consequences. This is something that may be important for you to consider, how do you handle endings? How do you want to be remembered on your way out? No matter how wonderful you were to work with or be with, for how ever many years, that final note is what you are remembered for. This Moon is in a trine aspect with Jupiter in your 12th house. Whatever results from this Full Moon, it feels incredibly spiritual or it may require faith and surrender in something bigger than you. Maybe change is triggering something for you, but know that nothing easy is worthwhile.
I think Jupiter in the 12th house could also mean that releasing certain responsibilities is something that creates a lighter mood, allowing you to feel more optimistic in your own mind. As Saturn also rules your 9th house and Jupiter is in the 12th house, you could be getting rid of things and responsibilities so that you can travel and explore other cities or countries at this time.
Meanwhile, Venus and Mars are in your 3rd house of local environment and communication– you may be noticing that how you have communicated before isn't working, that there is a better, more gentle way of approaching communication matters. You may also be assessing or reviewing the city you currently live in, the friends or peers around you, how you market yourself, your relationship with social media. These are all things you are reviewing and acknowledging where ego, pride, or enjoyment is perpetuated or blocked right now.

Hi, Cancer! Happy Full Moon. Let's breakdown this lunation. *Keep in mind that Full Moon themes are most obvious for 2 weeks after and work more subconsciously for 6 months after. You are completing a 6 month cycle!
- The Sun and Mercury are conjunct in your 1st house opposite the Moon in your 7th house trine Jupiter in your 11th house. Saturn, this lunation's ruler, is in your 9th house mutually receiving the Moon by sextile.
- Venus and Mars are in Leo in your 2nd house close to a conjunction.
This Full Moon is ending a cycle that started back in December, especially connected to your interpersonal relationships. The 1st and 7th house axis is where we meet themes of personal autonomy and self assertion versus accommodating other people and their personal sense of self. It's no secret that Cancer's relationships are challenging with Saturn ruling the 7th house, but personally, I feel like you guys are entering a new era.
You have Saturn transiting your 9th house and Jupiter transiting your 11th house– these two planets are showing us what themes your identity and relationships are centered around right now. You are in a several year long journey of self discovery (Saturn in the 9th). You are solidifying your belief systems, you may be exploring other methods of spirituality, the 9th house is one of therapists, astrologers, philosophers, teachers– some of you may be exploring ancient knowledge through a mentor's lens. Some of you are traveling and are experiencing this same sense of exploration through a physical journey, with people and places that are foreign to you, but that will ultimately become a part of you too.
Whatever the case, you are strengthening your own understanding and your connection to god, goddess, the cosmos, and most importantly? Yourself. This does not come without its struggles, because to adopt a new belief means to forsake the old beliefs that are contradictory. To travel and to fall deeper into your own self discovery means that you will be evolving and sacrificing relationships that aren't conducive to who you are becoming. It also means that any new relationships that you are creating are ones that you have to show up in differently than you would have before. It's hard to break a habit of old identity when that is what you have identified with your whole life.
With Jupiter in the 11th house, there is emphasis on new communities, new interests, bigger plans, a different future that you are stepping into. When you create a new self, you create new friends, you create new goals, you step into tribes and communities that you have never experienced before. This may be hard for some of you with Jupiter ruling your 9th and 6th houses– it is hard to step into the unknown when it's outside of what you have historically done every day. You are adding in new rituals, new daily practices, new mindsets that change the types of people and goals that you are interacting with. You also have a chance here to grow larger than you ever have before and feel the most authentic to who you are and who you are becoming. So, how can we relate it to the Full Moon? You have to first establish a new precedent in your relationships before you can fully step into this. People either need to grow with you, or find themselves falling behind you. The relationships that used to feel comfortable for you may be keeping you from your fullest potential.
Meanwhile, Venus and Mars are so close together in your 2nd house of values, time, energy, money, and self esteem. This Venus retrograde coming up is needing you to review some things in this area, but first, you have to notice what isn't working. Are you happy with the way you make money? Do you feel confident in your body? Do you like how you spend your time and energy? Have you been holding onto certain values out of pride and ego? Have you had enough pride in what you value? Have you been expressing your values even when they may differ from other's values? These are some things to start considering.
Hi, Leo! Happy Full Moon. Let's breakdown this lunation. *Keep in mind that Full Moon themes are most obvious for 2 weeks after and work more subconsciously for 6 months after. You are completing a 6 month cycle!
- The Sun and Mercury are conjunct in your 12th house opposite the Moon in your 6th house trine Jupiter in your 10th house. Saturn, this lunation's ruler, is in your 8th house mutually receiving the Moon by sextile.
- Venus and Mars are in Leo in your 1st house close to a conjunction.
This Full Moon is ending a cycle that started back in December, especially connected to your health, daily rituals, responsibilities, work, coworkers, reciprocity, and small animals. It's possible that you are completing a project at work or within your career, maybe you are quitting a job, being promoted, or have fully settled into some kind of responsibility you've taken on. It's also possible that you could be resolving a health issue at this time or realizing that you are wanting to make changes in this area of life.
Whatever the case, this Moon is opposite the Sun and Mercury in your 12th house of mental health, spiritual health, private matters, the place of surrender. Whatever is completing in your work and health sector is also affecting your mental and spiritual relationship with health. This could mean that you are setting a boundary at work that has been grating for you, it could mean that this sense of completion is freeing up your time for more rest and personal care. The 12th house can be a tricky place because its themes are not supported by our society. Rest and mental health are things that we scoff at, we don't take these things quite as seriously because they seem unrealistic or because we can't physically see them, we might assume someone is "making it up"
With the Moon receiving Saturn in your 8th house, it could be that someone else's health issues are falling to you, maybe you are taking care of someone close to you (especially family, but it doesn't have to be). This could mean you are taking on more responsibility at work or at home in order to help someone else out. This can also look like your work paying off, being able to pay off a debt, leaving behind something that was a time and energy suck. You may be intentionally setting a boundary to free up more time for yourself.
With Jupiter in your 10th house, you have likely had more career opportunities, responsibility (like we've been discussing), perhaps a new boss or mentor in your life, new paths and public roles that you are taking on and adjusting to, maybe new places to move to or life changes that require growth and travel. This is supporting the story around work, just like they say, "with great power comes great responsibility," this is very 6th house-10th house. Make sure that you feel comfortable with the amount of work and energy you've been putting toward your endeavors. If something is off, this summer is a great time to correct it.
Venus and Mars are very close together in your 1st house of self and identity. You are about to be reassessing this area, but first take the time to notice what you wish were different. Do you like the way you show up in life? Do you like the way you look, the clothes you wear, how you feel about yourself? Are you confident? Do you assert yourself in social and work situations? Do others know how you feel? Have you felt safe to express yourself? It's possible that this Full Moon is a catalyst for changes to your identity and physicality.
Hi, Virgo! Happy Full Moon. Let's breakdown this lunation. *Keep in mind that Full Moon themes are most obvious for 2 weeks after and work more subconsciously for 6 months after. You are completing a 6 month cycle!
- The Sun and Mercury are conjunct in your 11th house opposite the Moon in your 5th house trine Jupiter in your 9th house. Saturn, this lunation's ruler, is in your 7th house mutually receiving the Moon by sextile.
- Venus and Mars are in Leo in your 12th house close to a conjunction.
This Full Moon is ending a cycle that started back in December, especially connected to your inner child, children, passions, romance, sex and dating life. This is the "main character" house, it's where we romanticize the little things, it's the things that lit us up with joy when we were children, it's who makes us blush. This could be a moment of release where you are experiencing romance with another person, leveling up a friendship to something more, but it may not have to do with others as much as it has to do with what you personally enjoy. This may be a time where you are deciding to end a connection or set boundaries within one because your vision of the future (Sun and Mercury in the 11th) is different from someone else's. Some Virgos may be talking about children, finding out that they are pregnant at this time, planning the future for children (or something that makes you happy) or maybe your child is completing something big at this time. You may be very proud of their accomplishments.
If none of this is resonating for you so far, it's because the 5th house is vast. This is also what we find to be fun, entertaining, enjoyable, it is the past and our personal childhoods. You may be putting out a passion project to a group of people at this time, having some tough conversations about things that happened when you were younger, or deciding to follow what makes you happy despite what others may be saying. Whatever the case, this Moon is receiving Saturn in your 7th house of interpersonal relationships and partnerships. Some of you may be seriously considering taking a partnership to a new level or ending one due to someone not being ready for that next step (you or the other person). You might be discussing your childhood with a family member, you may be working with someone else or completing a project with someone else, there are many possibilities here, so take what resonates.
The Moon is making aspects to Jupiter in the 9th house, so whatever is culminating, it is likely connected to travel, learning, new experiences, foreign belief systems, self discovery and development, and spirituality. If you are celebrating something for your child, it may be that they have just completed a course of study, you may be discovering new things that you enjoy and what to do more of, you may be learning about a new person, what your life could look like. If you've wanted to learn something that looks interesting and enjoyable to you, this may be a time when you are attending a class, lecture, or working with a mentor of some kind.
Ultimately, you are exploring new parts of you! something that the 5th, 11th, 7th, and 9th house have in come is that sense of discovery. It's the idea that we can learn new things through experiences with others, by learning another's belief systems, or by being immersed in someone else's world. With Capricorn on the 5th house, sometimes this is challenging for you– to open up, to push past your comfort zone and to partner with others. For those of you thinking about relationships right now, you may be concerned about beginning a new relationship due to past experiences, but don't self sabotage just because it didn't work out before.
With Venus and Mars so close together in your 12th house, you are preparing for review in this area, but first take the time to notice what is happening here. Do you allow your fears to hold you back? Do you feel like others truly see and understand you? Are you able to recognize yourself and what you bring to the table? Do you hide from things because you are lacking confidence? Are there any mental health issues that need tending to? Are you giving yourself enough rest for creativity to arise? Do you fear that people will run when they see you in your most natural state?
Hi, Libra! Happy Full Moon. Let's breakdown this lunation. *Keep in mind that Full Moon themes are most obvious for 2 weeks after and work more subconsciously for 6 months after. You are completing a 6 month cycle!
- The Sun and Mercury are conjunct in your 10th house opposite the Moon in your 4th house trine Jupiter in your 8th house. Saturn, this lunation's ruler, is in your 6th house mutually receiving the Moon by sextile.
- Venus and Mars are in Leo in your 11th house close to a conjunction.
This Full Moon is ending a cycle that started back in December, especially connected to your home, family, physical residence, and the inner world. You could be moving homes at this time, maybe your home life or family is changing in someway, or maybe you are setting boundaries in this sector that implements a different dynamic than you've had before. With the Moon opposite the Sun and Mercury in your 10th house, I imagine that something that you are trying to do in your life (your career, your personal path, your sense of purpose, your legacy) is somehow culminating within the home sector. Remember that the 4th house is also familial karma, generational fate that we are working out. So if there are any feelings of restriction in this area, they may be shifting because of a shift that started within you.
I say this too, because the Moon in your 4th house is trining Jupiter in your 8th house of shared resources and transformation. It could be that you are benefitting from the things and spaces you share with others at this time– this could be inheritances, a loan, a partner's life changes affecting your own, it could also mean that some kind of personal transformation is changing your home and career life too. The Moon is in mutual reception with Saturn in your 6th house of work, health, and daily duties. So whatever changes you are making in the home right now is going to affect what you do every day. Just like when we move house, we have to figure out what works for us and what doesn't in that new space.
Remember that the cardinal signs, Aries, Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn (we have a lot of cardinal activations in July), are all about change, initiation, and extremes. Just like how Aries and Libra usher in Spring and Fall, while Cancer and Capricorn usher in the Summer and Winter, you are likely completing a chapter in your life and are being initiated into a new one. Jupiter is helping you seek out the message behind any baggage you've been carrying while simultaneously placing generous people into your life to help you out while you're sorting through the transformation you're experiencing.
Saturn is trying to help you get serious about your health– not just physical health, but health in all things and situations. This is about reciprocity, where you feel like you are expected to contribute, feeling like others may not be reciprocating what you are putting out, these are things that are relating back to the home right now. I think that either limits have been reached somewhere or a change is requiring more discipline in your day to day. This doesn't have to be bad either– everyone takes on different duties and responsibilities at different times depending on what the situation calls for. This could be something you are happy to tackle.
Meanwhile, Venus and Mars are so close together in your 11th house. Later this summer, you are reviewing things in this sector, but for now take the time to notice what is coming up. Do you feel like you are meeting the goals you set? What do you truly want for the future? Are you happy within the friendships and communities that you are apart of? Are you sharing your plans or are you afraid to? Do you think that keeping things private is necessary or do you think by sharing, others could potentially help you with your next steps?
Hi, Scorpio! Happy Full Moon. Let's breakdown this lunation. *Keep in mind that Full Moon themes are most obvious for 2 weeks after and work more subconsciously for 6 months after. You are completing a 6 month cycle!
- The Sun and Mercury are conjunct in your 9th house opposite the Moon in your 3rd house trine Jupiter in your 7th house. Saturn, this lunation's ruler, is in your 5th house mutually receiving the Moon by sextile.
- Venus and Mars are in Leo in your 10th house close to a conjunction.
This Full Moon is ending a cycle that started back in December, especially connected to communication, perception, learning, social media, online sales, siblings, and peers. This could be a time where you are implementing boundaries with things that no longer feel fun as this Moon is mutually receiving and is ruled by Saturn in your 5th house. This feels like using less of a certain app, distancing yourself from people who are draining you, changing your perception or realizing how different your perception is from others. It could be that someone's behavior is really weighing on you and you're needing to use the communication skills that you have been developing to let them know how you are feeling. On the other hand, there are some really positive things happening here.
You are venturing out into what does feel good to you, what platforms feel good for you to share or socialize on. You could be completing a project connected to marketing, publishing, learning, or teaching at this time. Maybe you are graduating or appreciating how much you've learned over the last 6 months (especially from study, books, or something online). These things have given you a new perspective too. If you have children, this could be a time where you are celebrating their growth, you could be learning something new about your child that really helps you as a parent and guide for them.
Whether you have kids or not, you may be connecting with new people as this Moon is trine to Jupiter in your 7th house of relationships and partnerships. You could be messaging someone online, finding yourself communicating to a partner of some kind (business, romantic, familial, etc), it feels like there are differences in your relationships that you're trying to work out, but at the same time, whatever is communicated at this time is likely to improve your relationships and deepen the connection. You could be traveling with a partner at this time, even if it's just locally, exploring your city, getting out of your typical environment is possible right now.
Saturn is trying to help you get more serious about what it is that your inner child really needs. Scorpio has Pisces on the 5th house which shows us that in childhood, you didn't have the tools to set boundaries, and this was probably harmful to your own sense of self and autonomy. This is a time where what used to entertain you or make you happy is changing and solidifying. You're committed to the voice inside you that says, "I don't want to do this," or "I don't want to be here right now," or maybe "I want something deeper and more serious," It is possible that you are connecting with people who are on your level, but if there is anyone around you who isn't, maybe this is the time to shift your focus.
Meanwhile, Venus and Mars are so close in your 10th house. Later this summer, you will be reassessing this area, but first take some time to notice what is coming up in this area. Do you like the path that you are on? Do you feel successful in your career? Are you allowing yourself to be seen in a way that furthers your career? Or, are you hiding from the world? Do you have imposter syndrome? Is this something that stops you from creation or sharing? What do you want your life to look like by the end of your life? What is the big picture?
Hi, Sagittarius! Happy Full Moon. Let's breakdown this lunation. *Keep in mind that Full Moon themes are most obvious for 2 weeks after and work more subconsciously for 6 months after. You are completing a 6 month cycle!
- The Sun and Mercury are conjunct in your 8th house opposite the Moon in your 2nd house trine Jupiter in your 6th house. Saturn, this lunation's ruler, is in your 4th house mutually receiving the Moon by sextile.
- Venus and Mars are in Leo in your 9th house close to a conjunction.
This Full Moon is ending a cycle that started back in December, especially connected to your finances, self esteem, time, energy, priorities, values, and possessions. It could be that you are leveling up within your finances in some way or you are making some changes when it comes to what you are spending your money on, how you make money, what you value the most, what you have within your personal possessions. You may be getting rid of things that you have at this time (clothes, furniture, habits, or values) to make room for other things or changes happening in your life. With the Moon in mutual reception to Saturn in your 4th house, this change likely has to do with the home.
Saturn is trying to help you sort through familial karma and fate, so you could be having some conversations around what is shared, where your personal values differ from the family values, you may be moving homes or downsizing in some way and this is why you are needing to sort through the things you currently own. It could be that certain self esteem issues were passed down from the family and this is something you are confronting at this time. The 2nd house is also about food and how we nurture our bodies. With the Moon in your 2nd house trine to Jupiter in your 6th house, you could be learning more about your health, fitness, or simply what it takes to fuel the body properly. The 6th house is also about work and daily routines though, so it's possible that you are getting a promotion, increasing what your duties and priorities are at work in a way that affects your home life.
For some of you, this means less time at home or maybe changes in the home as a result of your daily schedule– maybe someone else at home is picking up the slack, for example. Jupiter transiting the 6th house often brings a better lifestyle. The reasoning behind this looks different for everyone though, it could be someone entering your life that provides a better life, it could be more variety available to you (especially if you are changing locations at this time), it could be that you are taking better care of yourself and are intentionally trying to create a better, fuller, healthier life for yourself. There are many possibilities here.
The Sun and Mercury are still sitting in your 8th house, so whatever changes or endings are popping up for you right now are likely requiring internal shifts and transformations too. You could be paying off debts, taking out loans, clearing out the clutter, or sharing a space with someone that requires more intimacy or vulnerability– whatever the case, other people's finances and/or energy is contributing to your personal finances and energy too. It could be that these increases have to do with someone else in your life (a roommate, a family member, etc.)
Meanwhile, Venus and Mars are close together in Leo transiting your 9th house. Later this summer, you will be reviewing this area, but for now take the time to notice what is happening here. Do you have more to learn? Is there an experience, an adventure, or a trip that you are feeling called to take? Do you allow your beliefs to be seen and recognized despite what others may say about this? What is your relationship to spirituality and religion like? What about therapy? Where is it that you feel foreign and is this a bad thing? What parts of your identity are still lying dormant that are dying to be discovered by you?
Hi, Capricorn! Happy Full Moon. Let's breakdown this lunation. *Keep in mind that Full Moon themes are most obvious for 2 weeks after and work more subconsciously for 6 months after. You are completing a 6 month cycle!
- The Sun and Mercury are conjunct in your 7th house opposite the Moon in your 1st house trine Jupiter in your 5th house. Saturn, this lunation's ruler, is in your 3rd house mutually receiving the Moon by sextile.
- Venus and Mars are in Leo in your 8th house close to a conjunction.
This Full Moon is ending a cycle that started back in December, especially connected to your personal identity, self assertion, physical appearance, and autonomy. This is a time where you are noticing the growth that has taken place in the last 6 months. Capricorns are typically late bloomers, as they age they get better and better, they grow into their bodies, their personality, the person that they want to be. This is just a little stepping stone within your life's journey, but look at how far you've come even just this year. If you are not feeling very proud at this time, it will show you what needs to change and how. Remember that even if you're not where you want to be yet, you're on your way there. Acknowledge it all as perfectly imperfect.
The Moon is opposing the Sun and Mercury in your 7th house and is in mutual reception with Saturn in your 3rd house. I imagine that something is going on in your relationships (this can be business, romantic, familial, etc.) you may be needing to express something to someone in particular. Your own personal growth will always affect your relationships, this is why the 1st and 7th house are an axis. Have you outgrown some of the people in your life? Are others outgrowing you? Do you have regrets about not communicating in the past or are you currently struggling with communication and perception? Saturn transiting the 3rd house requires maturity when articulating yourself and this is something (especially with Mercury combust) that you could be struggling with right now. Know that it will get easier the more you do it, but this is one of Saturn's challenges for you. It will further your personal and relationship growth.
You could be putting some lessons you've been learning to the test right now! Remember that the 3rd house isn't just communication, it's also local environment, the city you live in, the places you go regularly, classes, anything you are learning (required or not)– these things could be reaching a culmination point that is allowing you to level up in your interpersonal relationships and within your identity, too. With the Moon trine to Jupiter in your 5th house, this could certainly be connected to something that is fun– maybe you've been studying something you're passionate about. This could be connected to your inner child or your children if you have them. You may be uncovering a childhood wound that allows for even more personal release and growth or perhaps your child is going through significant changes, or something with a partner is affecting your child.
The 5th house is also about passions, dating, sex, and romance. It could be that your dating life is becoming more enjoyable because you were able to communicate something or maybe you are having to set boundaries with someone that you've been dating. Whatever the case, I think you may be exploring this area more as a result of some of the personal changes you've been making. You are truly evolving! Are you ready for even more evolution this Venus retrograde?
Venus and Mars in Leo are super close together in your 8th house of personal transformation, debts (emotional and monetary), attachments, shared resources, and intimacy. You'll be reassessing this area later this summer, but for now notice what is coming up right now. Do you feel as though you have more emotional or financial debts to pay off? Be honest. Have you let go of the ego that stops you from expressing yourself fully? Do you feel positive about your shared assets and resources? Do you trust the people around you enough to become more intimate with them? Is there something holding you back from your personal growth and exploration?
Hi, Aquarius! Happy Full Moon. Let's breakdown this lunation. *Keep in mind that Full Moon themes are most obvious for 2 weeks after and work more subconsciously for 6 months after. You are completing a 6 month cycle!
- The Sun and Mercury are conjunct in your 6th house opposite the Moon in your 12th house trine Jupiter in your 4th house. Saturn, this lunation's ruler, is in your 2nd house mutually receiving the Moon by sextile.
- Venus and Mars are in Leo in your 7th house close to a conjunction.
This Full Moon is ending a cycle that started back in December, especially connected to your mental health, fears, insecurities, surrender, spirituality, and the unknown. Over the last 6 months you've been in uncharted territory. This is challenging because it's hard not to make comparisons and assumptions based on the past. Aquarius often loves to project into the future to predict it and to control it, but this hasn't been possible lately. Around this time, you could be releasing, allowing endings to take their natural course, holding space for others and yourself, maybe even reassessing where you have been carrying too much of a burden for someone else. With the Sun and Mercury in your 6th house, your body could be trying to signal to you that it needs rest especially through health issues and inflammation.
You work hard because you care, but with this Moon's ruler mutually receiving it in your 2nd house of priorities, time, and energy– you could be realizing that you haven't been prioritizing your personal mental and physical health. There could also be some unknowns about finances at this time that are making you feel a bit nervous, but this is why the 12th house is the house of spirit. Surrender and know that you have done all you can do with what you can see right now. Full Moons often reveal things, so this is a time over the next few weeks that you could be realizing or finding out about things that felt far away from you before. 12th house transits are always a great time for seclusion, trips and vacations away from everyday life. This would be a great time to recenter.
The Moon in your 12th house is trine to Jupiter in your 4th house of home, family, and the inner world. It could be that you are moving or expanding the home in some way right now, maybe this is part of the worry, or "unknown," this could even be something happening with a family member's health and mental state that is culminating right now. Are there hidden secrets in your family history that need uncovering or revisiting to gain more understanding for this chapter in your life? Again, this may be a time of revelation and discovery, be open to what your ancestors have to say to you right now. This could even be family values that are begging to be re-evaluated.
Aquarians often struggle with responsibility, the 12th house is where we meet things that are uncomfortable for us, and for that reason, I can't help but to feel like this is a time of unburdening. Though, Saturn is trying to help you understand commitment and how to pace yourself in the face of duty (especially the things we don't want to do). If you find yourself wanting to give up on something, examine the fear behind that and what your values truly are. If you give up are you acting in accordance with your values? If you continue in your commitment is this stifling parts of you that are integral? You may see themes coming up around food, possessions, clothing, and money right now.
Meanwhile, Venus and Mars are so close together right now in your 7th house. There will be time for reworking this summer, but first notice what is happening in this area. Are you happy in your relationships? Is ego keeping you from connecting with someone? Is there a business, romantic, platonic, or familial relationship that keeps you from expressing yourself fully? Do you feel seen by the people in your life? Do you appreciate and recognize others in your life? Do you feel like you have the necessary compassion for others and that they reciprocate this? Are you able to share yourself fully with others?
Hi, Pisces! Happy Full Moon. Let's breakdown this lunation. *Keep in mind that Full Moon themes are most obvious for 2 weeks after and work more subconsciously for 6 months after. You are completing a 6 month cycle!
- The Sun and Mercury are conjunct in your 5th house opposite the Moon in your 11th house trine Jupiter in your 3rd house. Saturn, this lunation's ruler, is in your 1st house mutually receiving the Moon by sextile.
- Venus and Mars are in Leo in your 6th house close to a conjunction.
This Full Moon is ending a cycle that started back in December, especially connected to your future plans, goals, friends, community members, groups, interests, and hobbies. You could see plans of yours coming to fruition at this time, it's possible that a significant group or community event is planned in the weeks surrounding this lunation, or maybe you are getting together with friends. If you're feeling positive, you might notice how much growth you've had within your own plans and ability to follow through or maybe within a community that you are a part of. If you’re not feeling this growth and celebration, this isn’t a bad thing, it’s just a constructive Moon for you.
If your plans haven’t quite worked out like you thought, it may be time to examine your expectations for yourself and for others. It’s possible that you are needing to set certain boundaries with yourself or your friends, the things that you do that are diverting you from your goals, and examine why you may be feeling a sense of disappointment or failure. This Full Moon is opposing the Sun and Mercury in your 5th house of dating, romance, the inner child, children, and passions. Is there a passion that you haven’t made room for? Perhaps there is a romantic partner that you are not on the same page with as far as plans and goals or a friend that you are wanting more from in this area. More abstractly, this could be bringing up things about your childhood, what you wanted for your life when you were younger and how these things are or aren’t coming true right now.
Inner child blocks are things that you are exploring right now. It could be that you are debuting something you are passionate about to the public as well. If you do have children, you may be evaluating their future, celebrating them in some way, or making arrangements for them. The Moon is in mutual reception with Saturn, its ruler, in your 1st house of self. Whatever comes up right now, it is ultimately about you, your identity, your personality, your goals. There may be certain people that you need to separate yourself from in order to be more authentic to who you are at the core. If there is anyone or anything in your life restricting you from that, now would be the time to make some changes.
The Moon is trine Jupiter in your 3rd house too, so there may be some communication that needs to happen, a perception shift, a class you are wanting to take (this is very supported now and for the next year), or maybe there’s something going on within your local city or environment that is opening up possibilities for what you want to invest in, in the future. The 3rd house governs siblings, peers, and social media as well– so these are people or factors in this Full Moon too. I wouldn’t be surprised if you were announcing something on social media (like a pregnancy, event, or big change in your life).
Meanwhile, Venus and Mars are very close together in your 6th house of work, health, and daily life. There will be a time for reassessment of this area later this summer, but for now, notice what might be coming up in this area. Do you feel appreciated by others? Are you looking for appreciation outside of yourself? Do you have resentment coming up around the responsibilities you have on a daily basis? Are you happy at work and do you feel like you can express yourself and your talents fully in the workplace? Are you taking care of your health properly? Is there something demanding your attention within your physical health (including physical activity)?
