FULL MOON 6 DEGREES CAPRICORN: Wednesday, June 27 & Thursday, June 28
Keywords/Themes: Grounding, responsibility, status, stern, heavy, self-deprecation, humility, depression, emotional wisdom, need for authority, emotional coldness, attachment, commitment and freedom
This summery full moon is often called the Rose Moon or Strawberry Moon because of the abundance of blooms and ripeness, though this full moon may not feel particularly up lifting. Capricorn can often be considered a Debbie Downer or put us in work mode, and can make us feel cold or unavailable. As an Earth sign, Capricorn is naturally heavier and asks us to be realistic, which may not feel so light.
The elevated expression of this may be a desire to step more into our authority or becoming more self-sufficient, as the last thing a Capricorn Moon, or Moon-Saturn person wants is to feel needy. Or it may also have us isolate or become overly involved in work, Capricorn has a deep appreciation for hermitting and time alone. However, my favorite part of Capricorn and Saturn shows up in its ability to make things real or come to fruition. Full moons represent the peak of a lunar cycle, and this one in particular calls on us to examine what we are committed to making manifest in the material realm.
Squaring Chiron, this full moon could touch on some painful or insecure places. Watch out for attachment wounds being activated or a sense of feeling victimized. These are the red flags of Chiron to pay attention to when emotions run high, which is particularly a theme for the full moon.
Those with Saturn in relationship to their moon in their natal chart may find themselves falling back on familiar patterns of suppressing emotions or feeling numb. This full moon tells us to get serious and wonder where we are an authority, to evaluate where we are committed. With the trine to Uranus we can come into contact with our dance between commitment and freedom, or it may also add some levity to the very grounding full moon.
This full moon was referred to as the rose or Strawberry moon in European traditions because of blooming of flowers and the season for strawberries. Here are some special everyday rituals for honoring this full moon, whether it be light or heavy for you:
Everyday ritual recommendations:
Be // Walking meditation (Saturn connects us to Earth and foot Chakra), preferably barefoot
Do // Get finances in order or re-evaluate commitments. Burn floral incenses or candles.
Wear // Gold and florals or rose-colored clothing
Eat // Strawberries and honey, bees are buzzing this time of year

Magic. We all know what it is. But when asked to define it, it can be a bit tricky to give it a good definition. So let's start with the basics. All types of magic have two parts: the belief part and the practical part. If you didn't believe magic was real, then why practice it at all? If you don't use magic for anything, why believe in it? It is worth noting up front that the magic this article talks about is also sometimes spelled "magick." This is mostly to distinguish it from the kind of magic with card tricks and rabbits being pulled out of hats. Another reason some spell it this way is because they use the "k" at the end to stand for "kteis." Kteis is a Greek word representing the passive or reproductive powers of nature. In this sense, magick is balanced against the oppressive aspects of more dogmatic religious traditions that seek to regulate individual behavior and enforce social norms.
