This full moon is the last supermoon of 2021. Last month’s Supermoon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius was the biggest and baddest. A supermoon can be a full moon or new moon, occurring when the moon is at perigee or within 90% of perigee (the point at which the moon is nearest to the earth in her monthly orbit).
The June full moon is called the Strawberry Moon because it coincides with berry season. In Europe, it is sometimes called the Rose Moon.
Sun and moon oppose one another in homebody Cancer and workaholic Capricorn for a full moon of epic proportions. The Capricorn full moons of 2019 and 2020 were both lunar eclipses, so this constellation has seen some intense lunar action, not to mention that Pluto, Jupiter, and Saturn have all been cruising through Capricorn recently too.
Cancer and Capricorn speak to home, work, and the relation between internal and external. Though they express it in different ways, both archetypes yearn to put down roots and get settled early in life. A partner is usually part of what it means to be settled, but really this full moon is about what makes us feel at home within ourselves. It’s about (self) love and commitment (to self). The Cancer-Capricorn polarity lies between the heart and the head. At this supermoon, Capricorn fortifies the heart with logic and emotional discipline.
Strength ~ drive ~ focus
One thing I can guarantee is that this full moon will be ridiculously busy. Capricorn always takes on way more than he can handle. You might be moving in to a new home, taking classes, picking up extra work, or all of the above. It’s summertime on the farm and ranchers are moving and grooving. The plants are growing. Structures are being built. People are coming to visit, eat, stay the night. It’s really important to rest during all this activity so you don’t kill your adrenals.
It’s not just the body that needs protection, but the psyche too. The full moon in Capricorn proves to be very powerful year after year. This is not surprising, considering that Cancer rules the moon. But Cancer-Capricorn is not just the lunar axis. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the economist and architect of the solar system. Capricorn/Saturn is all about building infrastructure and communal systems. Capricorn karma runs deep. It lives in the bones of society and the institutions which have survived. It speaks to why these institutions have survived.
Psychic and physical energy increase significantly at every full moon. Emotions and intuition will be heightened. Though this full moon is an apex in many ways, Luna is in her “detriment” in Capricorn, the sign opposite the one she rules (Cancer). When a planet is in detriment, its energies are weak and strained. The great news is that this supermoon will form a close sextile to Jupiter Retrograde in Pisces. This gives us hope, inspiration, and enthusiasm. Just imagine a sparkly rainbow unicorn showing up at your door, asking if you want to hop on and ride into the sky. That’s the vibe.
