July 3rd, 2023, Full Moon in Capricorn

The July full supermoon moon is powerfully held under the influence of Capricorn, an earth sign ruled by Saturn. Capricorn is an energy that connects us to practicality and ambition, aligning us with our discipline nature. Often associated with hard work and determination, we can also affect the pursuit of our long-term goals. The Capricorn moon amplifies certain qualities, such as focus and drive. This particular moon is a supermoon, which occurs when the moon is at its closest point to Earth, appearing larger and brighter in the night sky.

During this time, the full buck moon in Capricorn encourages us to assess our goals and take practical steps towards achieving them; slow and steady is the intention. It’s a time for clarifying desires, making plans, and embracing a structured approach to manifestation. This Full Moon urges us to be responsible, organized, and willing to put in the necessary effort to accomplish our aspirations while opening to the divine support within and around us.

This Full Moon can bring a sense of ambition and a desire for recognition and success, drawing our sacred gifts out, so we can understand a more profound purpose emerging. This moon prompts us to elevate our long-term plans and strategies, ensuring we’re on the right path and progressing toward our goals. It’s a time for taking stock of achievements, acknowledging accomplishments, and making adjustments if needed.

“The Full Moon in July is called the Buck Moon because the antlers of male deer (bucks) are in full-growth mode at this time. Bucks shed and regrow their antlers each year, producing a larger and more impressive set as the years go by. Several other names for this month’s Moon also reference animals, including Feather Moulting Moon (Cree) and Salmon Moon, a Tlingit term indicating when fish returned to the area and were ready to be harvested.” (Farmer’s Almanac).

“MoonChild, be free.
Free from the tides of being boxed.
Free from the norms of those who status quo.
Find your path and follow it to the moon.”
~Malebo Sephodi

Harnessing the Energy of the July 2023 Capricorn Full Moon

The Capricorn Full Moon reminds us of the importance of stability and self-discipline. It encourages us to embrace a mature and responsible approach to our commitments and to take ownership of our actions. This is an opportunity to assess our relationship with authority, set healthy boundaries, and cultivate a strong work ethic. Since Saturn rules Capricorn, we must be mindful not to become too fixed or rigid in our ways – slow and steady, but not stagnant and controlling. Flexibility is critical as we navigate new structures, boundaries, and various formats.

Trust the ambition rising from within; it’s signaling that it’s time for you to elevate your goals, make plans to receive them and take deliberate steps towards their realization. Embrace discipline, and persevere during this time; you’ll be grateful for staying on the path and planting seeds toward your long-term success. Trust the energy you are sensing when it comes to constructing, whether building something new from the ground up or tending to an antiquated framework that needs a fresh perspective or new energy.
