Full Moon in Capricorn: Release and Healing on June 16th

Updated: Jul 15, 2019



This month's first full moon is undergoing a partial lunar eclipse in the earth element sign of Capricorn, drawing a powerful emotional forcefield around us all. Light those healing candles, grab your potions, and pull out your crystals — this is going to be dramatic ride.


Nature is Our Healer: Turn to the Earth


As the strong eclipse energy moves shadowy internal issues out into the open, it paves

the way for total release. If you find you're not ready for change or to move

forward on your path, then you may want to consider asking yourself what is

really holding you back. Is it the situation itself, or your own fears?


In Pagan tradition, this moon is known as the Full Buck Moon; this is the time of

year when the antlers of a buck deer are in full growth mode. It is also known as

the Thunder Moon due to the high number of thunderstorms in July. Other names include the Blessing Moon, Meadow Moon, and the Wort Moon (wort is an ancient word meaning all herbaceous plants or herbs, which are ready for harvest in July).


Earth elements are related to growth. Now is the time to send your

roots deeper into the Earth Mother and call upon your guides to give you the

courage and strength to let go of an old vision that no longer suits you.


Making Moon Water


Moon water is water that has been charged with the energy of the Moon,

connecting us to the lunar power and energy from the Full Moon. This can add

magic and power to any intention and spell.


On the night of the full moon, place a clear quartz crystal in a jar of purified

water. Clear quartz crystals will help you stay on your new path, without

having to worry about negativity catching up with you.


Place the vessel outside in a clear, moonlit spot, making sure the jar is covered.


When morning arrives, your water will be charged with lunar energy. Drink

a bit every morning to balance the body, mind, and soul.
