“Whether it’s science or magic, if it’s of fun benefit, enjoy!” ~ ed
Full Moon in Capricorn is a time to ground our energy, rise above, get with nature, and honor the wisdom within.
The Algonquin tribes referred to the late Full Moon in June as the Strawberry Moon, for the relatively short season for harvesting strawberries in the northeastern United States. This reminds me we also may have a short season to harvest some of our creations.
In general, all full moons are a great time to think about our journey, celebrate our wins, and let go of all that no longer serves.
This Full Moon in Capricorn is bringing a unique opportunity for delving into success in service and enhancing the change that has been about.
Firstly, it may be important for some to note three things we may be feeling:
>> A strong desire to be of service in the world
>> A calling to look closer at our values, or confusion on what matters
>> A call to nature
Here is a nine-point checklist to help navigate these feelings of the Capricorn Full Moon:
1. Reflect on what was up six months ago.
The New Moon in Capricorn was January 12th, 2021. The intentions we set then are coming to fruition now. It can be helpful to go back to calendars, reflect on what was coming up then, and notice the corresponding effects happening now. The intentions, thoughts, feelings, and actions around the New Moon in Capricorn, planted the seed we see the growth from now.
2. Think about service.
We all came here with a greater purpose. The Full Moon in Capricorn provides an energetic opportunity to delve into who we are and why we are here. I do believe at the moment, I am living part of mine. I recently mused about helpful ways we can unveil more about service on Earth here.
3. Do value work.
From my perspective, and as mentioned in the above article, our values are our purpose. They are our bottom lines and define our hell yes moments, hell no’s, and help us understand what feels best. I find the benefit in doing value work every quarter or so. A value assessment I use and love is by Dr. John DiMartini.
4. Be vulnerable.
After assessing our values, we can benefit by reflecting if we are being vulnerable in sharing them. Doing a self-inquiry and committing to honoring what we genuinely value will help us maximize the full moon’s energy. We can read Brené Brown, think about how to be more vulnerable in the world, and release any fear around being attacked or judged for the truth reigning in our hearts.
5. Ground our energy in nature.
We are being called to ground our energy and spend time in nature. Being in nature naturally grounds us. I carved out time to spend in nature and plan to move my regularly scheduled workouts outside to my backyard. Because it’s naturally grounding for us to be in nature, I am killing two birds with one stone here!
6. Notice where shortcuts are tempting.
The current energy can provoke us to cut corners and be impatient. We can address the excitement by making a list of five to 10 areas where it’s tempting to cut corners, and then develop ways to do the exact opposite. Exercising patience and allowing for more time for these situations to unfold will support us.
7. Honor the wisdom within.
We can quickly turn outward for answers; meanwhile, we have brilliance and knowledge in our DNA. Creating space each morning three to five days before and after the Full Moon will allow for the wisdom to flow through. We can write, type, journal, speak to a voice recorder, meditate, or vision. Any way we can record our inner wisdom will be valuable and later honored.
8. Don’t stuff. Talk.
Number eight applies to the emotional stuffers. For those of us prone to stuffing emotions, find a different outlet for now. When we know we are here to do more, are confused by values, triggered in relationships, and can’t get into nature, things can become emotional now. The last thing we want is emotional stuffing. Let emotions out. Listen to their message, and act on the message received. I recently wrote about emotions and what they may be telling us to do. If emotions are an area of conflict, this article may help.
9. Keep going.
The phrase may seem too simple, yet it’s the simple things that are easy to forget and not do. I have been feeling the call intuitively to keep going—one foot, in front of the other. Don’t stop. There is a lot of change right now, and if we stop because we are fearful of greeting change, we may miss out. When we can leap knowing everything is happening for and with us, we benefit from seeing beautiful change.
I do not study western astrology (although I honor the learnings and turn to my favorite astrologer, Mimi at Gaia Blooming), and I am also not a moon expert.
I am a Subtle Energy Medicine practitioner, a moon child, and rely on the moon’s wisdom for just about everything. I turn to moon phases and cycles for my exercise regimen, menstrual cycle, business decisions, and scheduling events such as doctor’s appointments and haircuts.
May the information here help you in the ways it is helping me. Take what feels good, leave what doesn’t, and let me know in the comments! I would love to hear what resonates or not!
