Tonight is The Full Stag Moon, so called because young male stags will start to grow their antlers at this time. It is also called the Thunder Moon because of the thunderstorms brought on through the hot and humid air.
Change or be changed is the message of this Full Moon. Since the Summer Solstice you should have felt a sense of something shifting both within yourself and the outside world. This is because we have crossed a line.
The first half of the year is over. We have now entered the second half of the year. This a good time to look back over the last six months. Look at what you have learned, what you have lost, and what you have gained. Take lessons from what you have learned, good or bad, and use them in your future endeavors whether this be in work, relationships, or family.
Tonight’s Full Moon is in the sign of Capricorn. Things could get interesting, to say the least. This is an atmosphere ripe for outbursts that are highly emotional. Emotions could hit extremes of highs and lows, and everything in between, with quick, inexplicably loony shifts. We may find ourselves in a mood for no reason one minute, sad a minute later, and in the next minute happy for no reason. Don’t worry, this will pass.
The Capricorn Full Moon will give us strength to work on what we need to work out in our lives. Now is the perfect time to look into work or finances. A good saying is ‘The harder I work, the luckier I get.’, which is the Capricorn motto. If there are any jobs that you have been putting off, do them now. If you want to give up a bad habit, use the energy of this Moon to do it. Look into money-making projects. It may be a promotion at work or a project you could start that will bring financial rewards. Many people call this the ‘Money Moon’ because it has the potential to bring you wealth or extra income.
Tonight’s Full Moon will be about building foundations for the future to make ourselves feel more secure in our surroundings. We can only be happy when we feel safe and secure in our own homes and environment. Be ambitious, go for what you want, or put plans in place to get what you want in the future. Be braver, be bolder. You will have an inner strength now that will pull you through anything that comes up against you.
Capricorn is the zodiac’s worker sign; the noble protector and soldier. Be your own hero, be a soldier, tackle any problems head on, deal with anything that has been bugging your life, come to grips with what is holding you back, and break down walls and barriers that are stopping you from moving forward.
Use the energy of this Full Moon to heal your spirit. Soak up the intensified energy of the Earth and let it cleanse you.
Have a Blessed Full Moon and may the Goddess watch over you.
