When reflecting upon your long-term visions, do you believe you are in alignment with these goals and dreams, or at the very least in the right headspace? This question holds profound relevance while we approach June’s full moon in Capricorn, as we are called to reflect on whether our current actions and decisions support the future we envision for ourselves. With this sobering lunation approaching, consider this an opportunity to reassess the structures and foundations of your life—what needs to be adjusted to fortify your path moving forward? The essence of Saturn-ruled Capricorn encourages us to embrace challenges as opportunities for growth. In the meantime, check which astrological house this cardinal earth sign occupies in your birth chart to reference how this could play out in your personal and/or professional life. 


Reaching its peak via the first degree of Capricorn on June 21 at exactly 9:08 p.m. ET, it’s important to note that this is the first of two full moons in the same sign, as the second will occur on July 21. Firstly, two full moons in the same sign, during the same astrological season—let alone a moon ruled season—only emphasizes the essence of structure, discipline and accountability, which are all attributes of Capricorn. Secondly, the first of two (occurring in June) will respond to Saturn in Pisces, while the second (occurring in July) responds to Saturn retrograde in Pisces. This, along with the astrological aspects at play, makes each lunation significantly different from the other. With that said, the first full moon in Capricorn could even resemble the energy of a new moon, where the second encourages us to review and reflect. 


Selenite is renowned for its strong connection to lunar energy, making it a powerful ally for moon rituals and energy work. Our Selenite Cleansing and Charging Disc harnesses this moon-like luminescence to amplify your intentions and rejuvenate your other crystals, ensuring they're at their most potent when the moon is at its fullest. Only a few pieces remain so get yours before we sell out!


During the full moon phase, the sun makes a direct opposition with the moon, which in this case includes the sun in Cancer (symbolic of the home, family and emotional foundation) vs. the moon in Capricorn (representing the external structures, hierarchies, commitments, and responsibilities). Essentially, this is a call for balance between your emotional needs and your overall responsibility, whether in the workplace or with family. This is an opportunity to set realistic goals for ourselves, specifically in the areas where we need more structure. The sun, Mercury and Venus in Cancer will also sit across from the moon, making it an excellent time to connect with others, whether creatively or via an emotional heart-to-heart conversation.


As this stellium of planets in Cancer harmonize with Mars in Taurus, Luna will also trine the red planet, which is an excellent source of persistence, consistency and determination to pursue our goals moving forward. This brings focus to what is of value to us, and what requires more of our effort.

Do what you do best and take the lead, Aries. As the full moon casts a light on your 10th house of career, notoriety and reputation in the world, you’re called to evaluate everything from your professional ambitions to whether they’re in alignment with your longterm goals. Also, with your planetary ruler, Mars, energizing your second house of money and value systems, you’re more focused on your creature comforts and sense of security. This is especially true with the sun, Mercury and Venus hovering over your fourth house of family and emotional foundations. Take this time to reassess your path and consider if adjustments are needed to advance further. Full moon reflection: Are you on track to achieve the recognition and success you desire? Are the sacrifices you’re making worth it?


If you’ve been contemplating taking a leap of faith, you’re being encouraged to follow your intuition. Slow and steady wins the race, and Mars is in your sign is here to prove it. Luna will illuminate your ninth house of self-discovery, bringing emphasis to your personal growth and longterm goals. Whether through education, travel experiences, or expanding your philosophical outlook, it’s time to seek opportunities that align with your values and aspirations for the future. Lean on your friends and peers for support, especially with a stellium of planets in Cancer igniting your third house of immediate surroundings. Embrace the wisdom gained during this period to broaden your perspectives. Full moon reflection: Are you willing to explore new horizons that resonate with your long-term goals? 


It’s time to set the record straight, Gemini. With the moon reaching its peak in Capricorn, activating your eighth house of intimate unions and shared resources, Luna invites you to explore deeper issues of trust, empowerment and reciprocity, specifically when pertaining to your sense of authority, if not a parental figure or superior in the workpace. This is a time to reassess joint ventures, financial strategies, and emotional connections, ensuring they support your goals and aspirations. Reflect on what’s of personal value to you, as the sun, Mercury and Venus ignite your second house of stability. Full moon reflection: How can you continue to strengthen your bonds for a stable and fulfilling future?


Happy birthday, Cancer. Although the sun is in your sign, the moon's reaching its peak in the sign across from you, activating your seventh house of compromise, relationships and significant others. This encourages you to evaluate the balance between your personal needs and the commitments you share with others, or the lack thereof. Fortunately, with Mercury, Venus and the sun in your sign, you have the intuition, charm and compassion to relay an important message. Full moon reflection: Whether in friendships, romance, or business—do you prioritize relationships that contribute to your sense of security?


Tend to your due diligence, and get your ducks in a row, Leo. June’s full moon will highlight your sixth house of daily rituals and health habits, prompting you to reevaluate whether your habits and responsibilities align with your long-term goals, and emotional well being. Consider this an opportunity to streamline your schedule, prioritize self-care practices, and enhance your efficiency at work. By focusing on organization and self-discipline, you can lay a solid foundation for achieving your ambitions with clarity and vitality. Full moon reflection: Are there changes you can implement to better nurture your daily routines and health practices?


Surround yourself with individuals who embrace your authenticity, Virgo. The upcoming full moon in Capricorn will illuminate your fifth house of creativity, romance, and self-expression, prompting you to assess whether your partnerships and creative pursuits align with your true self and deepest desires. With Venus, Mercury, and the Sun converging in Cancer through your eleventh house of community affairs, you're being called to engage in meaningful connections within your social network. New moon reflection: Are your current commitments inspiring and emotionally fulfilling? 


Does your living space bring you the harmony you seek, Libra? With the full moon in Capricorn illuminating your fourth house of home and family, it's time to evaluate whether your domestic environment supports your emotional well-being and work vs. life balance. Luna invites you to consider whether adjustments are needed to create a nurturing and stable atmosphere at home. You may also find yourself reassessing whether the demands of your professional life align with your personal fulfillment and family commitments. Full moon reflection: How can you better integrate your personal aspirations with your family and career commitments?


An important conversation awaits you, Scorpio, as the full moon in Capricorn lights up your third house of communication and immediate surroundings. This lunation is urging you to engage in meaningful dialogues that could influence you in a positive way, whether personally or professionally. It's a time to express your thoughts with clarity and conviction, as your words carry weight and influence. The sun, Mercury and Venus in Cancer encourage you to explore new ways of effectively conveying yor message, whether emotionally or creatively.
Full moon reflection: How can you use your communication skills to cultivate deeper understanding and connection with others?


Your finances and value systems are being highlighted under the full moon, Sagittarius. While illuminating your second house, Luna prompts you to reassess your financial security and priorities regarding money and material resources. It's a time to examine how well your financial decisions align with your core values and long-term goals. Consider whether your spending habits reflect your commitments and if there are adjustments needed to achieve greater stability and security in your life. Full moon reflection: Are your investments contributing to not just your financial security but your emotional stability and overall well-being?


Happy full moon, Capricorn. This is the first of two lunations in your sign, marking a significant period of personal and professional growth. As the moon reaches its peak in your sign, it illuminates your first house of self, urging you to reflect on your ambitions, achievements, and personal goals. Luna invites you to celebrate your progress and acknowledge the milestones you've reached on your journey. Take this time to assess how well you are embodying your true essence and living in alignment with your aspirations. Full moon reflection: What aspects of your personal growth are you ready to amplify or refine to align more closely with your future visions?


You're being called to go within, Aquarius. The full moon in Capricorn is activating your 12th house of inner exploration and spiritual insight, urging you to dive deep into your subconscious. While encouraging introspection and self-reflection, Luna is inviting you to examine your inner world and emotional landscape. Take this opportunity to connect with your intuition and uncover hidden truths that may be guiding your path forward. Consider practices such as meditation, journaling, or engaging in activities that promote peace of mind and self-discovery. Full moon reflection: What past experiences or emotions are ready to be acknowledged and released for your healing and closure?


Your community and visions for the future are of greater emphasis at this time, Pisces. As the full moon in Capricorn ignites your 11th house of social networks and aspirations, it brings focus to your sense of belonging in the world and contribution to society. This lunation encourages you to consider how your ideals and dreams for the future align with the people around you. In any event, with the sun, Mercury, and Venus in Cancer hovering over your fifth house of self-expression and passion projects, now’s the perfect time to integrate creativity into your social initiatives. Full moon reflection: How can you leverage your unique authenticity and creative vision to make a meaningful impact within your community?
