When the moon is full in Capricorn, it faces the sun in Cancer in the sky. The Cancer-Capricorn axis is concerned with security – both materially and emotionally. This lunation asks you to reflect more deeply on how this dichotomy exists within you. Have you abandoned one principle for the other?
Capricorn seeks status and material gain and yearns to reach new heights through achievement and recognition. So the full moon in Capricorn can allow you to recognize some of your worldly accomplishments, but it is also a powerful time to reflect on your work-life balance. Where did you toughen up to keep moving forward? This is an ideal time to consider where you can invite more time for you and your needs into your life. Essentially, there is an attraction between our external and internal worlds, and we are faced with an opportunity to recalibrate.
There is a real energy of purification with this full moon, an opportunity to let go of people who bring you more harm than joy or to get rid of negative thought patterns or habits.
The full moon in Capricorn is nestled next to Pluto – the planet of death, transformation and taboo – in the sky. Our secrets and dark sides (the darkest aspects of our personalities) are illuminated in the light of this moon, and emotional triggers can feel more pronounced or intense. This energy is at odds with the sun in Cancer, an astrological symbol for the caretaker or womb.
While Cancer also represents people or community, Capricorn symbolizes institutions and traditions. The tension between the two in this solar and lunar dynamic is reminiscent of what this country has faced in recent weeks with the historic and devastating turn of the Roe x Wade.
There is a real energy of purification with this full moon, an opportunity to let go of people who bring you more harm than joy or to get rid of negative thought patterns or habits. Pluto’s challenge for transformation during this time: raw honesty, surrender and self-compassion. While emotions will be heightened, the moon will also be forming a gentle connection with Neptune, which gives a healing vibration and encourages self-forgiveness during this challenging transition period.

What the Full Moon in Capricorn Means for Your Zodiac Sign
The full moon activates your tenth house of achievement, recognition, career and reputation. Maybe you’ve recently received a promotion or wrapped up a big project at work. You may also be ready to leave a job you have held for a long time. With Pluto’s involvement, this full moon can make you reflect on all it took to get to that point. Was this all worth it? If you’re stuck in a toxic work environment, now is the perfect time to think about where you want to be six months from now and start moving in that direction.
Your full moon self-care practice: Take some time to reflect on your current career and work. Make a list of pros and cons. Journal about your co-workers and day-to-day experiences and explore what emotions arise for you.
The full moon manifests in a psychological way for you, Taurus, as it illuminates your ninth house of perspective, worldview, higher education, travel, and spirituality. You may be reflecting on the heaviest Plutonic themes at play on the world stage, and this could cause a dramatic shift in personal perspective. It is a powerful time to contemplate harmful beliefs that you may hold or cling to. You are looking at things through a global lens and noticing a necessary shift in personal ideology.
Your full moon self-care practice: You are craving mental expansion. There’s no better way than to commit to learning something new. Pick up a book you’ve been wanting to read or sign up for a course that interests you.
Where did you give up your power for the happiness of others, Gemini? The full moon moves through your eighth house of anxiety, fear and transformation. Issues that have not been resolved may arise for processing. This is a charged and draining lunation, but the emotions it brings serve as a powerful reminder that you can regain your power at any time – you just need to choose yourself.
Your full moon self-care practice: This is a profound time to engage in some therapeutic work. Whether working one-on-one with a therapist or participating in an activity like somatic work or EFT tapping, it’s your time to heal.
The full moon lands in your seventh house of partnerships and individual contracts – making it a well-aligned time to tackle any unhealthy relationship dynamics in your life. This is a time to set boundaries and release relationships that are more draining than restorative.
Your full moon self-care practice: Practice saying “no”. It doesn’t have to be anything dramatic, but focus on the little things. If your partner or someone close to you is always asking and asking and rarely giving, you can reserve the right to say “no”. This will help you build (and maintain) your boundaries.
The full moon activates your sixth house of work, routines and health. This kind of intense lunation can make you contemplate the energy you put into your work or projects and if it’s really worth it. Are you falling into a state of self-sacrifice and putting work first? This is a time lined up to say “no,” set boundaries, or kick a bad habit. You deserve space and rest.

This full moon moves through your fifth house of creativity, joy, pleasure and romance. While this may sound promising, Pluto mingling with the moon can make you focus more on your struggles in these areas than your victories. Do you feel that your creativity is blocked? Do you struggle to integrate joy and pleasure into your days? Spending time with your inner child can lead to some answers.
Your full moon self-care practice: Guided meditations for inner child work can be incredibly healing during this time. Try asking a younger version of yourself what would bring you the most joy. Even if the answer seems random, like finger painting or playing in a stream, listen and take the advice.
Family drama is at play under this full moon as it activates your fourth house of home, foundation and family. With Pluto’s involvement, it is likely that some ancient secrets or questions from the past will surface. Perhaps you are recognizing a pattern in your parents that you have picked up on. This can be a healing time for the family as long as you are willing to be honest and compassionate and face the shadows.
Your full moon self-care practice: Practice self-forgiveness. Before we can forgive others, we must forgive ourselves. If there is something that is weighing on your psyche, sit back and remember that you are human, humans make mistakes and you can forgive yourself and move on.
Powerful news or information could be about to rock your world, Scorpio. This full moon lands in your third house of communication, self-expression and the mind.

You may finally recognize a toxic dynamic or feel ready to make a change with unhealthy connections in your life.

The full moon will pass through your second house of income, resources and material possessions. Consider this an opportunity to explore your relationship with scarcity. Where are you holding very tight when it comes to your money? Is your fear getting in the way of life and the enjoyment of life? Full moons also signal major transitions and changes, so you may receive a promotion, raise, or new job opportunity.
Your full moon self-care practice: Treat yourself. Spend money on something you are wanting and send thanks and gratitude to the universe for having the resources to do it. This will shake up your relationship with money and can invite an abundance mindset.
It’s time to start over, Capricorn – this is your season for a fresh start.

Have you been a little hard on yourself, Aquarius? This full moon can force a period of solitude if you are burning the candle at both ends. Rest and recovery are needed. As the moon and Pluto activate your subconscious, hidden memories from the past may resurface so you can process, forgive yourself (if applicable) and release them.
