Summer is officially here and kicks off with a bang! The summer solstice, which marks the beginning of summer in the northern hemisphere and the longest day of the year, takes place on June 20 once the sun enters Cancer. The following day, on June 21 at 9:08 p.m. EDT, there’s a full moon in Capricorn, also known as the strawberry full moon. These back-to-back celestial events signal a dynamic and busy season ahead!

The full moon in Capricorn always coincides with a moment of recognition and accomplishment. This is an aligned time to celebrate yourself and how far you’ve come. You may also experience an epiphany of sorts regarding your life path. Do the goals you once had still feel fulfilling and exciting? You may shed illusions about your career or even the expectations others have for you. Now is time to prioritize what you truly want to be remembered for and the work you’d like to contribute to the world.

Under these moonbeams, you may learn more information, experience a perspective shift, or feel ready to make an important decision.

As a cardinal earth sign, Capricorn is about initiating and building. Ruled by Saturn, the planet associated with time, Capricorn is also connected with history and tradition, and asks us to reflect on the environment we’re living in and the systems and structures that are in place. What parts of these systems are corroded and could benefit from some renovation? This is a great time to consider how you can take dedicated and consistent action to make an impact and work to build an upgraded world. Saturn also has to do with limits, commitment, and boundaries, and this full moon may grant you an opportunity to set some new expectations with the important people in your life or reconsider who and what you are currently committed to.

This full moon also reactivates themes and topics that emerged under the new moon in Capricorn on January 11. Think about what commitments you were making and the boundaries you set. Some goals you set for yourself at the start of the year may manifest under this full moon, or shine a light on what step you should take next.

When is the next full moon in Capricorn?

The full moon in Capricorn, aka this year’s strawberry full moon, perfects at 9:08 p.m. EDT on June 21, 2024. But we’ll also have a second full moon in Capricorn on July 21—a pretty rare cosmic occurrence— adding another layer to this story.

What is the astrological meaning of a full moon?

When a full moon occurs, the sun and the moon are on opposite sides of the Earth, and also sit in opposite zodiac signs. The moon appears at its brightest, which is why astrologers associate this part of the moon’s cycle with illuminating topics or pieces of information that were previously obscured.

A full moon also marks the halfway point of the monthly lunar cycle. In astrology, it symbolizes a turning point, moment of culmination or celebration, or point of release and letting go. While a new moon is a time to set new intentions, a full moon is typically associated with those intentions materializing.

What can you expect from the June 2024 full moon in Capricorn?

This year we’re gifted with not one, but two full moons in Capricorn. The first full moon in Capricorn takes place on June 21st at 1 degree of Capricorn. On July 21, there will be another full moon in Capricorn at 29 degrees, the final degree before changing zodiac signs. This first full moon is an opportunity to look into our own futures, as we witness clues and themes that will come up once again in a month’s time.

June’s full moon in Capricorn sits across the sky from both Mercury in Cancer and Venus in Cancer, highlighting themes that have to do with communication and relationships. The full moon will put a spotlight on news, topics, and conversations that unfolded on or near June 17, when Mercury and Venus met at the same point in the sky. Under these moonbeams, you may learn more information, experience a perspective shift, or feel ready to make an important decision. This full moon also encourages you to voice your feelings and ask for what makes you feel safe, nourished, and cared for.

With responsible Saturn ruling this full moon, this lunation is even more interesting because it takes place just a few days before Saturn goes retrograde in Pisces on June 29. It’s almost as if you’re experiencing a moment of illumination about a boundary or commitment that you may need to reconsider during Saturn’s retrograde over the next few months. The moon in Capricorn will also form a supportive connection with Mars in Taurus, adding an energizing quality and a bit of grit and determination to whatever you decide to pursue under these moonbeams. On the same day, Mercury in Cancer will also form a gentle connection with Mars in Taurus, leaving you feeling inspired to take action on some of your ideas and giving you a sharp mind when it comes to your discernment and decision-making process.

To get a better idea of how the full moon in Capricorn will affect you in its first act, read on for your sun, moon, and rising signs. Then, pick up a unique self-care practice to help you move through this lunation with a greater sense of ease and balance.

Your star is rising, Aries. The full moon lands in your 10th house of honors, accomplishment, and career. Others are taking a close look at your hard work (in a good way!) and you could receive a raise, promotion, or hard-earned compliments for your efforts. You could reach a milestone with a personal goal, or take on a new title like mentor, sibling, teacher, or parent. This is an important moment to honor your growth and to celebrate how far you’ve come.

Your full moon self-care practice: Set some boundaries between your personal and public lives. Whether it’s work itself or oversharing on social media, you’re feeling a bit worn down. You may crave more private time with your chosen family, especially after all of the recent accomplishments and hard work you’ve put toward your goals.

A new perspective emerges under the full moon, Taurus. The full moon activates your ninth house of information, wisdom, travel, and education. An ongoing conversation could reach a climax—maybe you finally land a raise at work. Information that you learn around this time is enlightening to say the least. If you’re in school or learning something new, you may also feel more confident or even ready to share your own knowledge through a speaking or writing opportunity.

Your full moon self-care practice: Speak your mind! Your words are extra potent and impactful under this full moon, and it’s not the time to hold back from sharing your feelings or pitching your wild ideas to anyone who will listen. A lot can change from one conversation, so take a risk!

It’s time to survey your closest relationships, Gemini. The full moon moves through your eighth house of intimacy, reciprocity, and shared resources.

An ongoing contract, project, or commitment could also wrap up. This energy also may encourage you to have conversations about shared resources and responsibilities with a partner, roommate, or an important person in your life.

Your full moon self-care practice: Send a text or write a letter to the three closest people in your life that you appreciate to let them know that their care, generosity, and support doesn’t go unnoticed.

This also brings turning points to your important ties—maybe you’re ready to finally commit or move in with a lover, or realize it’s time to set clear boundaries to get back on the same page as someone important in your life.

Your full moon self-care practice: Balance is key! Don’t shy away from having uncomfortable conversations today. If you feel like your relationships don’t feel as reciprocal as they once were, acknowledge where you’re falling short or where you’d like more support.
