This Full Moon is influenced by the grounded, hard-working, and responsible sign of Capricorn. This is the time to pull those lofty dreams, hopes and wishes down to the Earth plane for creation. This particular Full Moon also happens to be a supermoon, near perigee when the orbit of Moon is the closest to Earth. Success is possible and inevitable if you are grounding your desires into form with action and intention. This is the time to bring physicality to the energetics – alignment in the most potent format. A dream without a place to land will disappear if it cannot be acted upon and brought forth with intention.
All Full Moons amplify certain energetics – often the shadow and all we unknowingly hold within this aspect of our being. The shadow can teach you how to bring presence and awareness in areas you could benefit from more discipline. Pay attention to the moments and situations you tend to check out in – these are indicators of growth potential. Discipline is key during this time; refrain from being too spontaneous or impulsive, it is likely a distraction keeping you from containing your essence in a more concentrated way.
Capricorn has an energetic signature of stability. It can show us how to create solid foundations and become more practical in applications. This form of discipline may not seem very appealing when creative energy invites us to feel called in a million directions. Reign the creative energy in and connect it to the grounded and practical Earth energy and your dreams will have the perfect vessel between ether and matter to come into form.
The June Full Moon is called the Full Strawberry Moon. This Full Moon got its name from the Algonquin tribes who knew it as a signal to gather the ripening fruit of wild strawberries. It has also been known as the Honey Moon and the Full Rose Moon in Europe.
This Full Moon is also an opportunity to reflect and illuminate areas of rigidity: Where can you soften control and open into flow? Lessen the strict format of how you do things and redirect this creative force into structures and containers that are conducive instead of constrictive. Trust the intuitive impulses surfacing. Intuition coupled with discernment will bring immediate clarity. Clutter clearing and clearing your spaces can support you in becoming more focused and ambitious during this time. Release items that no longer feel cherished or honored by you – someone else may reinvigorate the items and make better use of them. Full Moons are wonderful reminders of how we can let go and still shine – standing in an empowered place while letting go at the same exact time.
“Out of clutter, find simplicity.” ~Albert Einstein
Tips for June 24th Full Moon in Capricorn:
Ground down into your deepest desires. Put aside everything distracting you or pulling your awareness away from what truly matters to you. It is safe for you to let go of situations, people, and behaviors that no longer feel supportive to who you have become. A greater version is continuing to re-emerge through your life experience. There is no need to drag heavy things along for the ride. Practice deep breathing to move density, while remaining focused and present. You might even feel drawn to consume more proteins and grounding foods. Trust the innate wisdom of the body and soul. The Moon can connect you to the rhythms of nature and help you find your own flow.
If you feel discomfort in your body as you ground more deeply into it, ask the body to show you what it is may be holding energetically. Working with the body can also advance the manifestations you seek to create. Take time to discover what feels good and what feels heavy. Use the mind together with the body to create discernment and awareness.
Ways you can allow this Full Moon to support you:
- Find out when the moon rise is in your city by going here: http://www.timeanddate.com/moon/
- Find a place where you can see or sense the energy of the full moon – preferably a comfortable position with the moon in sight. If you can sit outside on the earth for this exercise, you may notice a larger shift.
- Gather a notebook and pen.
- As you sit in the moonlight, bring awareness to the body. Complete a body scan from head to toe, inwardly seeing, sensing, and feeling each area, muscle, and organ.
- With closed eyes, focus on your breath, breathing slowly and deeply. Tune into your body and ask what the body needs, if anything.
- Do not be afraid to speak to the body or to sense it. Connect with the body as you breathe and scan.
- Spend a few minutes free writing anything that comes up, even if it does not make sense. Notice thoughts or feelings while you remain present.
- If you feel guided to, you can burn the paper to release, and take note of any actions the body may have guided you to follow through on.
*Reminder: each Full Moon will impact you for up to 3 days prior to the Full Moon and 3 days after the Full Moon.
Full Moons are always powerful times for releasing and letting go. Try creating your own ceremony or honoring of this time to embrace the energy that this time has to help you create space in your life for what you truly desire. As always remember, you are not alone in experiencing this phase. Be mindful of this when encountering others over these next few days. Send them love as they are also shining a light on themselves and may be extra sensitive during this time. The next full moon is in the sign of Aquarius on July 23rd and is known as the Full Buck Moon. This Full Moon will also be a Lunar Eclipse.
