Understanding the Magick of July Full Moon
Welcome witches to the month of July! We are officially in the dark half of the year as we are past the summer solstice, and boy, time is flying. This time of year is known for many things, including barbecues, warm weather, and this particular full moon as of July 2023 is in Capricorn! So if you're an astrology witch, hopefully you find this particular post interesting.
This month's full moon is potent, and as witches, we'd be remiss to miss out on the abundance of energy it provides. In a nutshell: Time to start really reaping the rewards of your hard work, but the grind isn't over just yet.
In astrology, the full moon in Capricorn represents a time of hard work, discipline, and determination. Capricorn is a sign that seeks stability and success, and this full moon provides us with the necessary energy to channel those traits into our lives. So let's explore how we can harness the power of this moon to manifest our desires and reach our goals.
According to the Farmers Almanac, July's full moon is known as the buck moon because July is when male deer, or bucks, are growing new antlers for the season. Kinda cool eh? Depending on the location, this moon is also known as the salmon full moon or the thunder moon. I personally like the name of the thunder moon but here in San Diego it doesn't really apply. If I had to give it a name based on the happenings over here, I'd call it the sunshine moon, simply because we are finally over all this May Gray/June Gloom and finally enjoying some serious sunshine. Anyways, moving on.
July Full Moon in Capricorn: What does it mean?
The first step in harnessing the power of the July full moon in Capricorn is to set your intentions, yes, pretty standard moon magick, but that's kinda the point. What do you want to manifest in your life? What are your goals? Write them down, meditate on them, and visualize them as if they've already come to fruition. The energy of this moon is all about the intention of manifestation, so be clear and intentional with your desires.
Next, it's time to get to work. Capricorn is a sign of hard work and dedication, so channel that energy into your goals. Make a plan and stick to it. Don't let procrastination or self-doubt hold you back. This is a time to be disciplined and focused. Whether it's working on a project, starting a new business, or applying for a new job, this full moon's energy will push you forward towards success.
Another way to harness the power of this moon is to let go of what no longer serves you. Capricorn is also a sign of letting go of old patterns and beliefs that do not align with our goals. Take some time to reflect on what you need to release. It could be a toxic relationship, a negative mindset, or even clutter in your home. Whatever it is, set the intention to let go and release it during this full moon.
This moon is also a time to connect with your inner wisdom and intuition. Capricorn is associated with the element of earth, which represents groundedness and practicality. Take some time to connect with nature, go for a hike, or meditate outside. Allow yourself to tap into your intuition and gain clarity around your goals.
Finally, take some time to celebrate yourself. Capricorn is a sign of achievement and success, so acknowledge all the hard work you've done and the progress you've made towards your goals. Celebrate your successes, no matter how small they may seem. Treat yourself to something special, indulge in self-care, and appreciate yourself for all that you've accomplished.
What am I working on this full moon?
If anyone cares to know, I've been working on a huge project since the beginning of the year. I'll just go ahead and say it: I've been working on a book for my Yoga Witches, and July is actually the month I got ahead and present it to publishers. The timing of it being during this particular full moon is actually quite serendipitous, and I'm so so eager to share more of it with you all. Very soon, hopefully! Wish me luck!
Final Thoughts: the July full moon in Capricorn is a time of hard work, discipline, and determination. It's a time to set your intentions, get to work, let go of what no longer serves you, connect with your inner wisdom, and celebrate your successes. As witches, we have the power to harness this moon's energy and use it to manifest our desires and reach our goals. So let's embrace this magical time and use it to create the life we've always wanted. Happy full moon, witches!
