!! OMG Stars: Full Moon in Capricorn, June 2021 !!

OMG Stars by Amelia EhrhardtFull Moon in Capricorn, June 24th, 2021

It’s nice to reach a full moon that can feel like a bit of a deep stretch and a pat on the back. We made it through some shit! Mercury is finished its retrograde so you can start taking responsibility for your own mistakes and stop blaming it; we’re through this round of eclipse season and all the drama that goes along with that; and we’re fresh into Cancer season and the official start of summer in the Northern hemisphere. We did that!

Full moons are always a time of culmination, and i don’t know if it’s just me personally, but I feel a great sense of accomplishment in the way that a Capricorn moon does best. Something about making it through all of that rotted astrology has made room for some personal congratulations, some space in my mind to make decisions and move forwards. Full moons are like that, they give us an opportunity to look at what you’ve made happen and what you can let go of.

Full Moon in Capricorn, June 2021This full moon in Capricorn, with the sun in Cancer, is joined by Venus and Pluto also making an opposition between Cancer and Capricorn. This damn portal! Cancer-Capricorn was the site of so much drama last year, and last new moon and eclipse was also activated by Mars opposite Pluto. We can’t seem to get away from these thematics butting heads. Our work and our personal lives, integrity and vulnerability, structure and softness: collectively we are being asked to address these ideas. Wherever Cancer and Capricorn sit on your chart is a part of your life that probably for the last year, you can’t seem to get away from. Always just coming back to it.

This lunation’ s horoscopes are written to draw attention to this part of your life and to figure out how to balance letting go with also acknowledging that there’s still much to be done. Pluto will be in Capricorn until the end of 2024, so even though there are some culminations happening, you’ll probably still be thinking about these things for a few years yet.

Let the accomplishments you’ve made feel good while also giving space for more transformation.

Aries rising

This far into the pandemic and all the conversations about a changing world of work, do we yet have any inkling of how to create a work-life balance? This question has been a huge thematic in your chart for the last couple of years as Pluto’s transit through your tenth house of career has been in opposition to any planets in Cancer in your fourth house of home.

Career, work, and your reputation has likely been a site of much transformation for you, particularly in 2020, and this full moon can tell you that you can let go of just a little bit of whatever you’ve been holding. It’s time to put a project out into the world, it’s time to know that the thing is good enough, and that you can at this point rely on your reputation.

Venus in your fourth house of home brings some sweetness to the way you relate to home and family, creating a good opportunity to take refuge in whatever those concept look like for you.

Taurus rising

Can you grow while holding on to your position? Pluto’s long transit through your ninth house has brought several years of slow transformation to the part of your chart that has to do with opportunities for expansion, and has also meant that learning to see from another perspective could also become a source of power for you. But anytime Pluto has been opposed by a planet in Cancer – as is happening right now – it’s meant that you’ve been taken into a sensitive side of yourself that wants to make sure your own perspective is heard.

The question is, is it better to be right, or is it better to understand? Learning to make – and protect – your own opinions is important, but in order to do that you also need to see different beliefs. Use this full moon to choose a belief that you’ve held fiercely to but that, if you’re being honest with yourself, you think could take some wiggle room.

Gemini rising

Can you transform while also guarding your needs? How do you sit with the deep transformation of intimacy while also feeling an urgency of stability? Pluto’s long transit through your eigth house of transformation and intimacy has likely meant that the years since 2008 have been marked by some very deep work for you, deep slow work that has brought you into your power as a human.

Any time Pluto has been opposed by planets in Cancer, as happened this week with the full moon and Venus-Pluto opposition, you’ve had to sit with thinking about how your own transformation also necessitates changes around your values and your resources. This could be practical – untangling from a person and needing to untangle your resources – or deeply spiritual – facing a transformation in your sense of self+other that changes the way you think about what you value.

Use the energy following this full moon to consider the deep changes you have been through, note which of them are concluded and which are still underway.

Cancer rising

What does it mean for a relationship to culminate? Is the culmination of a relationship when you accept what it is? Is it a formal acknowledgment of commitment? Is it an ending? The sun and Venus are in your 1st house of self, while the moon and Pluto are together in Capricorn in your seventh house of relationships, where Pluto has been since 2008.

Much of your life has been slowly marked by the importance of one-on-one relationships during these years. Working through the way that your closest partnerships affect your self-image has been something of a constant since that time, and any time a planet in Cancer has opposed Pluto, it’s been a time of particular importance for that. I encourage you, sensitive Cancerian, to focus on yourself with this lunation.

Give yourself the love you are seeking from others, and learn from your own example how you want to be treated.

Leo rising

How can something we do every day ever be finished? How are our daily tasks something we can ever see as “completed” instead of “insurmounting”? This full moon in your sixth house of daily labour and routines invites a desire for a sense of completion in your everyday life. Pluto has been making a long transit through this part of your chart since 2008, during which time you may have gone through some really big transformations around work, routine, and possibly even your health.

Any time Pluto has been opposed by planets in Cancer, as happened this full moon and Venus-Pluto opposition, it’s called to the relationship between your dreams and your everyday life. That which you imagine in secret and that which you enact in plain sight. This polarity has been a thematic for you particularly over the past year and a half, and this full moon is one more change to feel a sense of small closure. Celebrate the small, tiny victories: the pile of laundry folded, the email sent, the dishes done.

These are the most tangible wins in our life and make up the sacredness that is living.

Virgo rising

Can joy ever feel complete? Does it ruin the fun if pleasure comes to a close? This full moon was in your 5th house of creativity and pleasure, where it joined Pluto who has been making a long and slow journey through this part of your chart since 2008. Opposed the full moon and Venus in Cancer, sitting in your eleventh house of community, it calls to mind the dichotomy between your personal sense of pleasure and your collective sense of responsibility.

Your own desire to create something versus the way it relates to the public. Let the energy following this full moon be a sign that something you are working on is finished. Something that you want to birth into the world, some little or big creative project that’s been brewing is complete.

The timing is good to share it with the world: we are ready to see it.

Libra rising

How does home ever feel relaxing when it’s a place of work? This is a big question for Libra risings all the time, since you have Capricorn (the sign of work) on you fourth house of home: home is a place of structure and of accomplishment for you. Pluto has been making a long and slow transit through this part of your chart, and was joined by this full moon to highlight the dichotomy between your work and your home that has been particularly palpable since the start of 2020.

Any time a planet has travelled through Cancer it has opposed Pluto and lit up this polarity, and with this full moon and Venus-Pluto opposition, you likely felt a particular sense of imbalance. This is hard for Libras especially, but always remember that balance is a verb and not a noun.

It is the act of shifting things around that is balance itself: otherwise it’s just a static state of unchanged.

Scorpio rising

How can you share your point of view when the desire to listen to another feels more safe? Pluto, your ruling planet, has been making a long transit through your third house of communication since 2008, and has likely brought both a sense of fear yet also power to the way you communicate. This full moon joined Pluto in this part of your chart, bringing a hopeful sense of completion to some issue of communication.

Venus and the Sun in Cancer opposing them highlighted a dichotomy in your life that has been active for the past year and a half: that it feels safe to listen to others, to be in a space of growth, and scary to share your own perspective. Understanding, however, is impossible unless you say your peace.

It might take time – Scorpio is a fixed sign and you need to take your time to decide things – but allowing your words to come through is a service to yourself and everyone around you.

Sagittarius rising

How do you feel safe when your resources are in flux? It’s difficult to feel any kind of true stability when the things we need to feel safe are themselves inflexible. Pluto has been making a long and slow journey through your second house of resources since 2008, and you’ve possibly had some big shifts not only in your things (your food, your money, your possessions) but also in your values. What you own and what you hold dear are very similar.

Any time Pluto has been opposed by planets in Cancer, as happened this full moon and Venus-Pluto opposition, a polarity between your values and your entanglements with others has been activated. The way that what you own is in relation to who you are in intimacy with has been called into attention: but honestly this could also just be some bullshit around your taxes.

This full moon represents one small culmination in a series of things. This is good energy to choose one object to get rid of: sit with it, do the whole Kondo thing, and stop letting yourself be weighed down by its energy.

Capricorn rising

Even more Capricorn astrology! My take on this last year’s astrology is that we as a society are working through our Capricorn trauma. We are working through the shadows of your sign: the parts that have to do with greed, acquisition, and intolerance. Every human has these inside of them. Every person with major Capricorn placements is simply more aware of them.

Awareness of our shadow is an important step to owning the parts of ourselves that we’re uncomfortable with. This full moon in your sign gives you a chance to let go of something that you don’t want to have define you anymore.

Some prior disagreement, a fight, a time you didn’t act according to your own integrity: let the past be in the past and know that you want to move forwards, and that you know the person you want to be in the world.

Aquarius rising

Many of the things in the Capricorn horoscope above will also be applicable to you, Aquarius risings, because you have Capricorn on your twelfth house of solitude and the shadow self. The twelfth house is where we keep the sides of ourselves we’re not so comfortable with. Parts that we’d rather not get too deeply into. This full moon took place in this part of your chart, and has called up a polarity between your solitude and your showing up that has been active over the past year and a half, but slowly unfolding since 2008.

The full moon and Pluto in Capricorn opposed the sun and Venus in Cancer, where our big luminary and our sweetness have been sitting in the part of your chart that has to do with your day to day life. Pluto there has possibly made you afraid of your own demons, but to fear a part of ourselves gives it unnecessary power.

Let go of the idea that there are “good” and “bad” parts of yourself, and see that we are a complete and imperfect whole.

Pisces rising

Why is there no ritual for the end of a social relationship? Why don’t we have a cultural structure to acknowledge the difficulty of shifts and endings i our social sphere? This full moon is in your eleventh house of community and friends, where it joins Pluto in that slow dwarf planet’s long journey through this part of your chart. Since 2008 you’ve had Pluto in this area of your chart, bringing deep transformation to your social life.

As a Pisces you are naturally on the sensitive side, and change to your social groups might not be welcome: but this full moon is here to mark a culmination of some sort. That culmination could be deciding that a friendship, or friend group, is no longer working for you, but it could also be acknowledging that it has changed. Perhaps this is a thing to celebrate – like feeling more secure in a friendship than you had before, or having made it through a really difficult time with a group that you now feel more stable in – but whatever it is this long transit set off by the moon is here to help you let go of something that needs to be let go of.

Be warm with yourself and others throughout the process and remember that community is always in flux.
