Full Moon in Capricorn


This is a pragmatic Full Moon that comes after an exhausting Mercury Retrograde period. Mercury retrograde in Air signs is always brutal but more so in the sign of their rulership, Gemini.


The Moon occurs at 3 degrees in Capricorn. The Moon is in her detriment in Capricorn, in opposition to nurturing Cancer. Capricorn is among many other things the sign of pragmatism and reserve. This is a Saturn-ruled Moon that asks us to anchor ourselves in reality. It’s a Moon for adulting and taking responsibility for our lives. Saturn makes an exact sextile to Chiron during this Full Moon. Both Saturn and Chiron are teachers. Are you aware of your wound? Are you doing the work of healing? Saturn blesses us with diligence and tenacity. This is a helpful aspect that makes it easier for us to work on our healing.


Assisted by Mercury now direct in Gemini, this Moon asks us to make at least one big decision. If you’ve been waiting for a vital piece of information, this info has probably been made available to you. What requires your attention? What steps can you take at this time to forward an important goal?
