Full Moon in Capricorn June 2021

Extract from Patreon Astro-tarot reading transcript – The Full Moon occurs at 19:39 (BST) on June 24, 2021 at 03°Cp27′. This is the peak of the lunar cycle, and the focus now is on Capricorn matters.

Capricorn relates to the global 10th house. In the 10th house, we often think of it as to do with career and professionalism and what we want to do out there in the world. It’s our reputation,

what we want to contribute. Capricorn is a strong, earthy, practical sign. It’s a sign that’s associated with accomplishment. So, we’re looking at: – what have I accomplished? What is visible to me now with the experiences that I’ve been through? What have I learned so far? Capricorn is associated with structure, so what is becoming visible now are the structures that we have in place. Are these structures working for us or are they working against us? Are they holding and containing us for us to be able to achieve more? Or are they limiting us? Are they hemming us in?

Always at the Full Moon, it’s important to check in with our feelings. The Sun in Cancer (the natural home of the Moon) is illuminating where we are feeling vulnerable or needy. Cancer is a sign that needs. It needs home, it needs family, it needs a sense of belonging, it needs to feel safe. Capricorn however, is much more about being able to do what needs to be done despite what is going on at a feeling level. It doesn’t shut off the feelings, it just puts them in their place so we can do the adulting thing. But at the same time, there’s a lot of emotional content underneath (Sun in Cancer) and how do we deal with all that emotional content when we have to get on with the job, go to work, be on time, get the to do lists done, deal with our goals, deal with our responsibilities and our commitments? How do we do all that stuff when we’re feeling emotional? The Moon in Capricorn highlights all this.

Positively, we’ve got a connection between the Moon and Jupiter, a sextile which is a helpful aspect. Jupiter is currently retrograde in Pisces and happy in this sign as it is the co-ruler of Pisces. Even though we are finding it hard going at times: even though we’re having to deal with all that’s going on in the world, we’re also invited to have hope and to be kind – kind to ourselves, kind to each other. We’re invited to develop our imagination and to explore how to give ourselves better structure and stability for the long term. We can draw on this wonderful Jupiter connection for faith. It’s an antidote to Capricorn which is all about gritty reality and common sense. Capricorn makes us look at things in a very realistic way. But sometimes we can lose our sense of faith and belief because we’re so focused on the practicalities and adulting. Life can lose its mystery and magic, and we forget that miracles can happen. So, this chart is asking us to tap back into that spiritual side of ourselves. If we are feeling that things are heavy, given the Moon in Capricorn and the tenderness of the Sun in Cancer, then we need to ask ‘what are my beliefs telling me about the situation that I’m in? How can I keep kindling this hope inside of me? How can I lean into what I believe on my spiritual paths? How can I have more joy? With this chart, even though there’s some tension, we always have something to lean on.
