Theme: On The Edge Of A Breakthrough

On June 21, we have the first of two Capricorn full moons this summer, which will bookend a specific and timely lesson related to an emotional healing journey set in motion back in January.

This week’s full moon will occur at 1°, with the second occurring a month later at 29°—this is highly significant as the first and last degrees of a sign are considered critical points and represent beginnings and endings. 

Later this fall, Pluto will dip back into Capricorn and touch the degree of fate one last time before settling into Aquarius for the next 19 years, completing a major transformation that ends a karmic cycle in the area of our chart ruled by Capricorn.

Therefore, the events that transpire over the next month will initiate the shedding of outmoded beliefs and emotional baggage that have been slowing down or sabotaging our progress.

Whatever is coming up now must be cleared before we can manifest the intentions set during the New Moon in Capricorn back on January 11.

That said, the current quality of time is making our deepest desires harder than ever to ignore.

With the Sun, Mercury, and Venus all sitting in the early degrees of Cancer, emotions are increasing in intensity as the light-hearted and detached energy of Gemini is replaced by a longing for safety and solidity. 

You may be experiencing waves of grief, sadness, or disappointment that do not make sense, or you may find yourself overreacting to minor things. This is evidence that some part of you is seeking love and connection, an essential need has not been met, or a boundary has been repeatedly crossed. 

Take heart because these breakdowns commonly occur when we are on the cusp of a breakthrough…

Before we ascend to the next level, we must purge and transmute any emotional residue we haven’t dealt with, but this can be an immensely painful process for some of us.

During a full moon, the Sun and Moon sit opposite in the sky, activating opposing zodiac signs. In this case, we are dealing with the Cancer/Capricorn axis.

Cancer and Capricorn are the archetypes of the mother and father in astrology—with these two energies at play, so are our childhood wounds. Cancer embodies the safe, nurturing energy of the feminine, while Capricorn represents the structure, rules, and authority of the masculine.

During childhood, our understanding of the world is established as we observe and interact with our caretakers. According to attachment theory, these primary relationships form the basis for our future interactions with others, shape our core beliefs about ourselves and the world, and show us what we have to do to feel loved and accepted. 

By working with the shadow energies of Cancer and Capricorn, we can discover how our unmet needs from childhood may be influencing our current circumstances.

When shadow Cancer energy is active in our lives, we might over-give to others, hoping they will one day recognize how valuable we are and return our love. Instead of communicating how we feel or asking for our needs to be met, we may become moody and withdrawn, creating a sense of safety through self-sufficiency and hyper independence. 

Shadow Capricorn, on the other hand, causes us to associate our worth with external achievements. We strive for perfection, hoping to gain others’ approval and recognition, reprimand ourselves for not being enough, and make decisions based on what we should do, not what we want to do.

Many of our negative automatic thoughts and maladaptive ways of receiving love are echoes of our first relationships and experiences. 

The voice in your head that says you’ll never succeed is the voice of an authority figure from the past. The desire to love others into loving you is the shadow of a child whose needs were dismissed. 

Until we become aware of these underlying wounds, they will continue to sabotage our progress, keep us small, and play out in our current relationships as we try to write new endings to these ancient stories.

It is only through taking responsibility for reparenting ourselves that we can begin to shift away from who others said we were to who we actually are. We cannot become who we are meant to be when our beliefs and actions are based on false information rooted in the past.

In essence, reparenting means giving your adult self what your inner child never received. We are being asked to undertake this work over the next month because whatever vision or goal you had in mind back in January is being held up somehow by these unhealed wounds.

This full moon will work to highlight our self-sabotaging beliefs and challenge us to question their truth, and it will bring us face-to-face with deeply buried pain through triggering circumstances designed to wake us up. 

Begin this work by tracing your steps back to the start of the year—what was weighing heavily on your mind? What old habits and coping mechanisms were the subject of your New Year’s resolutions?  What fears or limitations did you wish to overcome? 

Then, consider where those feelings and behaviours originated—go back as far as you can. The challenges and triggers you are facing now are, in some way, a continuation of that story.

The next month may feel overwhelming for many of us—this is some of the most challenging energy to shift. Just know that if you are going through it right now, you’re not alone. 

It also means you’re closer than ever to the breakthrough you’ve been waiting for.

Full Moon Journaling Prompts:

Do my self-beliefs reflect who I am today or someone else’s opinion of me in the past?

What old stories am I telling myself that keep me from becoming who I want to be?

What parts of myself am I still hiding because I feel they are unloveable or unworthy?

What did my child self need, and how can I give that to my adult self?

Who This Full Moon Affects The Most:

Aries sun, moon, and rising

Cancer sun, moon, and rising

Capricorn sun, moon, and rising

Affirmations For Healing Your Inner Child

Reparenting is a self-care strategy that helps us heal our childhood wounds by giving ourselves what we needed as children. This will look different for everyone based on your personal experience, but there are some common themes many of us struggle with.

As you become more comfortable meeting your own needs, you will develop a sense of safety and security that allows you to show up more confidently and avoid replaying the same unhealthy scenarios in your relationships.

  • My feelings are valid—regardless of whether they are positive or negative. What I am experiencing is real for me. 
  • I do not have to over explain or justify my feelings to make others comfortable. It’s enough to say that something hurts. 
  • If something is not suitable for me, I can walk away, knowing I tried my best. I am not a failure for making new choices.
  • Setting boundaries with others allows me to be my best self. I give what I can and know that I am still worthy of love on days when I can’t give much.
  • I can show empathy toward others without allowing them back into my life. I am protecting myself by choosing to spend time with those who give as much as I do.
  • It is okay to ask for what I need and seek support from others. Those who love me want to help.
  • When I set limits for myself, I create a foundation for success. Structure is healthy and keeps me moving toward my goals.
  • I am making peace with the fact that not everyone will like me or agree with my decisions. My intuition and experience will guide me in the right direction.
  • Even if things don’t work out the way I expected, I know I have the skills and strength to overcome challenges and figure it out.

A Full Moon occurs when the sun and moon are opposite each other. This creates a sense of tension. It’s when the sun shines the most light on the moon. The Sun is our conscious and the Moon is the unconscious. So it’s an ideal time to LET GO and to bring the dark into the light to be released. 

Every Full Moon is a chance to look back at the intentions you planted two weeks ago during the New Moon. What were they? How have they manifested? Are you taking action toward them? Now is the time to reassess and release anything standing in the way of your hearts desires. The two weeks between the New and Full Moon is a great time for new beginnings. The two weeks after the Full Moon is time to let go. 

When we plant our New Moon intentions, we can’t just plant the seeds and wait for them to grow. We need to fertilize the soul, water them, make sure they get plenty of sunlight – most importantly we need to weed and pluck out that which doesn’t serve us. The Full Moon helps us ‘pluck’ out the weeds. 

When the moon is full, a light shines on the areas of our lives it’s time to release and let go.
