A positive, under some conditions, Full Moon takes place in the sign of Capricorn on July 3rd. It is a Moon that brings opportunities and rewards in your professional life and aspirations, but one that also shakes up your emotional life and presents challenges and dilemmas.
Each Full Moon is the culmination of a cycle that began two weeks earlier with the New Moon that preceded it, and which now either completes situations successfully, or illuminates the difficulties that exist and how they should be overcome.
This Moon takes place on the Cancer-Capricorn axis and so highlights issues that have to do with the balance between family comfort and professional accomplishment.
It is a contest between introversion and the need for recognition.
The issue is about being safe. To be able to give and receive care. To show that you care about some important people who you consider to be in your close inner circle.
These are the persons you love. The ones you want to take care of and are first in your list of priorities. Just as you care, it is important that your ambitions and your efforts to achieve your goals respectively are supported by your loved ones.
However, it is equally important that you, as you take on the emotional responsibilities of your various roles as a parent, professional or partner, do not feel burdened or unfairly believe that you are not performing or contributing enough.
Fortunately, the key aspects that take place at this Full Moon are helpful, and are made by Jupiter and Saturn. Two planets related to social recognition, opportunities that present themselves, and status and maturity in handling both situations and opportunities.
So there seems to be a balance between the two levels, of work and family, as the aspects work to stabilize. Saturn even rules this Full Moon, so it seems we are reaching a cycle in which your efforts are recognized.
You combine organization with intuition which means you can easily accomplish your goals. It’s an ideal time to set new ones as well. With planning and preparation.
Mercury conjunct the Sun and opposing the Moon is in a position that says you can easily have it your way! Communicate your wants from your center without criticism or wavering. It doesn’t need pressure. It just needs you to explain that you are concerned about the mutual benefit of everyone and gently encourage the initiatives and choices of others.
Jupiter in Taurus in trine to the Moon gives you confidence, optimism and opportunities to build something more this period.
Saturn in Pisces tempers dreams and in trine to the Moon orients you towards needs that are realistic.
This Full Moon would have a sense of accomplishment for everyone if it weren’t for the aspects Venus and Mars are making. Here’s the issue now, for these two planets from the Leo sign are seeking recognition and acceptance a little too much and more than normal.
So, the balance brought by Jupiter and Saturn is disrupted by challenges, because the quincunx aspects that Mars and Venus make to Pluto in Capricorn and to Neptune in Pisces are creating dilemmas, longing for something extra, and are filled with a feeling of unfulfillment.
Particularly in your emotional life, the Venus and Mars aspects present psychological challenges and will show the emptiness within if you happen to be in a relationship that does not give you the support and tenderness you are desiring.
But this Full Moon in Capricorn also presents opportunities(!) in love, since the two planets of love are in a trine aspect to Chiron in Aries and are also in a square aspect to Uranus in the sign of Taurus.
So, if you are single or unattached it is possible that sudden connections and awakening passions will occur, which will boost your confidence, and through which you could be supported to heal issues from the past.
If you are in a relationship, it may also be that a renewal will occur and issues you have dealt with in the past, will start to heal.
However, this aspect can also work the other way around and bring out tensions towards independence and break-up moods, especially if, as mentioned above, you are not giving or receiving the affection that you deserve.
It seems like water is getting in the groove with this Full Moon, and it primarily provides many opportunities for balance on an emotional level, and stability.
But, it will for sure test relationships in which one or both persons have not shown for a long time, or will not be willing in the coming weeks, to show the maturity AND tenderness necessary for better communication and sharing of responsibilities within the relationship.
Maturity combined with tenderness, ARE PREREQUISITES under this Moon.
Don’t forget that just before this Full Moon, Neptune turns retrograde and we are entering a long hot and topsy-turvy summer for romantic matters, as Venus will be retrograde in the sign of Leo for a long period of time.

I wish an enjoyable Full Moon to all!
