July 13 marks the arrival of the biggest super moon of the year, meaning la luna is orbiting more closely to the earth, appearing larger and brighter, as well as supercharging the celestial planet’s energy. Called the “buck moon” by the Old Farmer’s Almanac, this month’s full moon falls in Capricorn, the zodiac sign’s ambitious and natural-born leader.
Full moons symbolize a chapter closing, presenting the perfect time for us to evaluate how the past month has been and create intentions to move forward. Because the goat of the horoscope is best known for its laser focus and insatiable desire for the best in life, this cosmic culmination shifts our attention to areas regarding our work life. With the Sun in empathetic and homebody Cancer, the surge of astrological energy invites us to use Capricorn’s assertive nature to set boundaries for ourselves both in our outer and inner worlds.
Use the power of July’s super moon to step back and take a look at the bigger picture for your own journey and make a concrete plan to fill in the gaps where needed.
