In astrology, Full Moons are about endings or completion. They illuminate the high point in the lunar cycle, the point of maximum growth. With a Full Moon in Capricorn, we review what we have learned so far and we take emotional responsibility for any mistakes we have made.
All Full Moons are emotional moments in time since the astrological Moon rules our emotions. Capricorn is an earth sign with relatively stable, grounded emotions, so this is not one of the most angst-ridden Full Moons.
Nevertheless, Capricorn emotions do include a lot of guilt and worry, so during a Capricorn Full Moon, it can feel painful to look back with regret, or to chastise ourselves for the things we haven’t done. We tend to forget to congratulate ourselves for what we have done.
Under the influence of the Capricorn Full Moon on July 3rd, 2023, we can also expect a highly ambitious day. Capricorn is the most ambitious energy in the zodiac, never taking no for an answer and always pushing to get ahead.
This Full Moon energy enables us to take and absorb any knocks, knowing that we will get back up again shortly and carry on trying.
For some people, the Capricorn Full Moon can be a little bit cold and impersonal – ruthless even. Certainly, it’s a time when people are bolder than normal in trying to get what they want or what they feel they deserve, sometimes without due regard for others. For most of us, however, this Full Moon brings out positive leadership attributes. Yes, we may be pushing ahead, but we can do so while taking others with us instead of trampling over them.

Full Moons are also an opportunity for us to deal with challenges from our shadow selves. The shadow side of Capricorn’s energy is a dismissal of comfort, family and compassion. It’s important during this Full Moon to understand that compassion isn’t weakness; its strength. Wanting to be with your family isn’t laziness; it’s love. Wanting to be comfortable and secure isn’t holding you back; it’s a natural instinctive need in all of us.
Use the energy of the Capricorn Full Moon to integrate your shadow feelings too, acknowledging them and working through them to get to a better place.
How Does the Capricorn Full Moon Affect Each Zodiac Sign?
Each Sun sign will experience the Capricorn Full Moon in a slightly different way, but all signs should look for opportunities to congratulate themselves on a job well done rather than merely regret what they may not have yet achieved.
Full Moon in Capricorn for an Aries (Aries dates: March 20 – April 19)
This is the most ambitious of all the Full Moons for you, Aries. Set your sights high but take some time out too to appreciate how far you’ve come. You’re very hot on where the next goal is, or what your new plans are, but you often forget to enjoy the scenery along the way. This Full Moon, spend some time reflecting as well as moving ahead.
Full Moon in Capricorn for a Taurus (Taurus dates: April 20 – May 20)
The Capricorn Full Moon signals adventure for you, but as well as opening doors to new opportunities, it may also come with a hefty dose of regret about the chances you didn’t take previously in life. You cannot fix the past, but you can resolve to move into the future with a more open-minded and can-do attitude.
Full Moon in Capricorn for a Gemini (Gemini dates: May 21 – June 20)
Psychologically, astrology suggests that the Capricorn Full Moon can be tough on you, Gemini. Instead of fretting over scores you haven’t settled and revenge you’d like to take, focus on the positives. Look at how much self-growth you’ve enjoyed during the last year. What can you do to build on that? Be the very best version of yourself that you can be – this Full Moon empowers you in that regard.
Full Moon in Capricorn for a Cancer (Cancer dates: June 21 – July 21)
This Full Moon falls in your love zone, which can be a beautiful thing in a strong, loving relationship, taking your partnership together to the next level. However, it can also bring out hidden tensions, regrets and anxieties in a relationship, especially if there is an unequal power balance or if one partner’s career is deemed more important than the other’s. Look for balance and harmony.
Full Moon in Capricorn for a Leo (Leo dates: July 22 – August 21)
The Capricorn Full Moon highlights your everyday routines and schedules. As such, this is a great time for planning ahead. Focus on time management and squeeze every last drop of value from every 24 hours you have. It’s a time to stay busy and to look at how you can enjoy new activities, new adventures, new freedoms in the coming twelve months.
Full Moon in Capricorn for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 22 – September 21)
The Moon in Capricorn is a very creative time for you, Virgo. Allow yourself to indulge in arts, crafts, dance, music, writing – anything that inspires your soul. You can be prone to worry during this period, especially over your career, but artistic and hobby pursuits will bring you great joy and free your mind to be at peace with your current situation.
Full Moon in Capricorn for a Libra (Libra dates: September 22 – October 22)
It’s all about family during this Full Moon and you may find that tensions between relatives come to a head. Stay calm and remember that this too shall pass – in fact, it’s healthy to discuss opposing views now, so that everyone feels heard and valued. When all is said and done, you value your roots and you know that your loving family foundation is strong, so don’t over-react to minor problems.
Full Moon in Capricorn for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)
Take a good look at how you’re communicating during the Capricorn Moon – you may be giving away much more than you realize in your body language or the things you leave unsaid. Take extra care around social media, because you cannot take it back once you’ve hit that button. This is a good time to safeguard your privacy and to count to ten before saying something you know you’ll regret.
Full Moon in Capricorn for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)
The Capricorn Full Moon activates your money zone and astrology suggests this can be a time of financial abundance for you – but if you’ve taken your financial good fortune for granted, the Moon can also bring crisis and material loss. It’s a very good time to start a gratitude journal and to learn to value the things in life you already have, instead of always wishing for more.
Full Moon in Capricorn for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 18)
A Full Moon in your own sign is always empowering, and this is no exception. You’re probably feeling confident and authoritative, and perhaps vindicated over being proven right in some regard. Be careful not to allow your confidence to turn to arrogance, however, especially in your personal life. Ground yourself carefully and never forget who you truly are.
Full Moon in Capricorn for an Aquarius (Aquarius dates: January 19 – February 17)
This Moon occurs in the most spiritual zone of your chart, and it’s a time for reflection and learning. Try to avoid large crowds, which you will find draining and demoralizing. Instead, enjoy solitude or stick around only your closest loved ones and allies. Dreams and synchronicities have deeper meaning for you now, if only you care to look and to listen.
Full Moon in Capricorn for a Pisces (Pisces dates: February 18 – March 19)
Your social life is affected by this Capricorn Moon and you may find yourself at a turning point with one particular friend. Don’t be afraid to let your paths diverge. You may have outgrown one another. It’s a good time to expand your social circle in other directions, perhaps seeking and finding a whole new tribe of people who share your beliefs, your principles and your values.
