Full Strawberry Super Moon in Capricorn

Today welcomes the Strawberry Super Full Moon in Capricorn. Indigenous people named this the Strawberry Moon because it occurs during the height of strawberry season. (Yum.) This is the final super moon of 2021, which makes it an awesome time to get outside and do some moon bathing, moon dancing or moon gazing when the illumination is amplified and extra shimmery.


Capricorn is lending its energy to this full moon. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn. It is represented by the mythical sea-goat creature. This energy is expressed through the themes of limitations, boundaries, structures, ambitions and time. Goats are upwardly mobile creatures. They are nimble and agile in their ascent to great heights despite the treachery of the landscape required to get there. However, the sea-goat has its legs in the deep fluid waters of Mama Earth’s womb. This grounds the ambition of the goat in a deep connection to Soul purpose and emotional fulfillment. This full moon will be illuminating our search for and progression toward our destiny in life. What are we moving toward? How much progress are we making? Is this direction really leading us toward our Soul’s mission?

This is also a time in which we might see more clearly where our boundaries are weak or failing (or nonexistent). Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, is currently retrograde. Retrograde planets shepherd us more toward an internal inventory. This is a time during which we might be gaining awareness of our own limitations or getting some very clear insights into how and when (and by whom) our boundaries are being breached. It can be a time to review and reconfigure our own personal systems of structure. (For some people, structure might be very rigid and meticulous. For others, it may be very loose and creative and disheveled. There’s no one way to structure a life, but it is helpful to understand and curate the structures that serve you best.) This may also be a period during which we are evaluating our relationship with time, another Saturnian concept. (Are you feeling like time is running out? Or do you have to much time on your hands? Or are you struggling to have patience in pursuit of a goal?)

You can dive down the rabbit hole of astrology and get really specific about where the moon falls in your houses and signs and at which degrees and creating what aspects with other planets. And if that feels good for you … have at it! However, it’s not necessary to do all that in order to work in collaboration with the Moon.

Return to the intention you set at the New Moon. If you didn’t set an intention … erm, intentionally … you can also look back at what was going on in your life a couple weeks ago. Think about what you were wishing for then or what was feeling exciting and inspiring for you. You can also recount any challenges you were facing then.

The Full Moon is the phase of fruition. It’s the time when the moon and sun are opposite each other in orbit. It’s a period in which the inner truth (moon) and the outer expression (sun) are at a proverbial arm’s length from each other. Having this space between them, we can see how accurately they are reflecting each other. Is the external expression an honest portrayal of the inner truth? Or, in other words, has our intention come to reality in the way we intended?

If yes, great! How do you feel about it? Was it all you hoped it would be? How will you celebrate this win? How do you plan to build on it moving forward?

If no, this is a beautiful moment for getting curious about why things didn’t go according to your plans. Did you take action? Were the actions you took effective? Could you have taken other actions that would have been more effective? Was your intention really aligned with your desires? If yes, could you find another intention that might be a betterrepresentation of what you want? If not, why did you choose this intention? What do you really want instead? Were there outside obstacles that prevented you from manifesting your intention? Could you have prepared for these obstacles before they happened? What could you have done differently to overcome those obstacles?

Keep asking questions until you find the questions that give you the answers you need. And remember that it is only in failing that we learn how to succeed. This is a brilliant (pun intended) opportunity to learn from the full moon.

I hope you get to bask in the light of the Moon’s wisdom and truth in the way that serves you best. Read on for the Full Strawberry Super Moon in Capricorn Tarotscope. It felt like a super powerful and timely offering of wisdom to me. May it speak to you in some inspirational way, too.
