Full Moon in Capricorn & Your Horoscopes | 17 - 23 July 2023

Full Moon in Capricorn & Your Horoscopes | 17 - 23 July 2023

It’s the moment that we’ve all been waiting for with bated breath - finally, the long-anticipated Venus retrograde is happening from this week onwards until September 3rd.

Why is it so long-awaited? Well, Venus only goes retrograde every eighteen months or so, and once every eight years, she comes back to the same sign that she retrograded in. So, first things first - take  a look back at whatever was unfolding for you back in July of 2015. These themes are likely to come back and bite you in the you-know-what this Summer (or Winter, depending on where you are at the moment). 

What are the lessons of Venus? Well, they're primarily about love, really. Love in all its forms, not just romantic love. You know the Greeks had seven words for all the different types of love? So, whether you’re dealing with a lover, a friend or your family, these are the relationships coming up for review now. Yes, they’re going to be challenging. Yes, you may feel as if your fairytale is coming to a disastrous end. 





Now, let’s take a look on individuals insights into what the stars have in store for each sign during 17 - 23 July 2023:


Capricorn is your career sign, which means that this Full Moon falls directly in that area for you. Look around in your world. What's coming full circle for you professionally speaking? What great opportunities are flowing towards you, opportunities for growth and expansion? You’re certainly not the type to sit around twiddling your thumbs and waiting for things to happen. You’re going to eagerly jump at all the cosmos has to offer, aren’t you? 



This week’s earthy Capricorn Full Moon is all you. Unfolding in your spirituality and personal growth sector, it’s a time when you can really see just how far you’ve come over the last several months. What have you learnt? More importantly, how can you practically apply that knowledge? Is there anything that’s coming full circle for you when it comes to the topic of travel? Is there a trip you wish to take, whether that’s an inner or an outer one? 



Your ruler, Mercury, is the only planet that's making any sort of aspect this week, aside from the Full Moon. It’s a beautiful energy - a trine to Neptune, to be specific. This is well-known as the Artist’s aspect, so if you’re creatively inclined, get busy making music, dancing, painting, cooking or whatever else tickles your unique fancy. If not, then this energy is ideal for letting your imagination soar when it comes to ways to make money or achieve more professionally. Go, you. 



This Full Moon is in your opposite sign of Capricorn, and thus , is all about relationships for you. Because this location has very positive aspects, you’re probably going to find that said relationships are about to take a turn for the better.  There may even be love coming your way. Growth in your community is highly likely, as is personal and spiritual growth. It's wonderful when we can balance our own desires and unique path with the needs of others, isn’t it?


LEO ♌︎

The Sun is your ruler, making Full Moons momentous events for you. This one unfolds in your work sector, so you may find that certain accomplishments are being highlighted now. For example, a large project being completed - very successfully so. You have every right in the world to celebrate, to crack open that champagne (or kombucha, whatever works for you), and do a happy dance. It’s time for a cycle to come to an end so that a new one can begin. 


This Full Moon in Capricorn is fabulously rich and sensual. Illuminating your play and romance sector, it’s all about enjoying the people in your world - whether lover, friend or child. Maybe there’s a tiny touch of pressure in terms of having to balance these connections, but it’s nothing that you can’t handle. In fact, the more love you give, the more you have to give. It just works that way. You could also find that a certain passion or hobby reaches its zenith now, making it possible to tick off that box so that you can take up the reins of something else you feel drawn to. 



You could be wondering what’s more important right now - home or career? Public life or private? The truth is, it’s neither. There’s an equal amount of positive energy being distributed between both areas, making it, for once, easier to make a decision and find balance. Things are feeling very positive in your family life at the moment, with a domestic situation reaching a positive conclusion. And when it comes to work, well, it seems you have some great developments there, too.


Capricorn is a sign that you can totally get behind. It’s driven, motivated and ambitious, just like you. That’s why you’re going to very likely love this Full Moon’s energy. It’s centered in the area of your natal chart linked to communication and ideas, and so, you may find that certain plans are coming to a head. You;re seeing the fruition of your ideas, and that fruition seems very positive indeed. You may still need to balance the bigger picture with some smaller details, but that shouldn’t be hard at all.


This week’s Full Moon lets you see the results of your hard work when it comes to disciplining yourself financially. It’s been quite a journey, hasn't it? The last four months - even years - have shown you just how materially savvy you are and how you can make things work in even the most difficult of circumstances. There seems to be a reward coming your way now, perhaps by way of a new job presenting itself on the horizon, or an exciting new opportunity to earn some income. Go, you.



Thai Full Moon is all you! It’s got your name written all over it. What personal accomplishments are coming to a head right now? What have you achieved over these last couple of months? What do you need to let go of so that you can step into a more authentic, motivated and unique version of yourself? What relationships are supporting you on your journey - and which ones aren’t? The spotlight is on you right now, and the world truly is your oyster. Get creative.




La Luna is in your most private, secluded and isolated sector of your natal chart. Here, she works her magic on bringing certain patterns and cycles to an end. First, she makes sure that you see these patterns so that you know where you need to make the cut. This won't be painful. In fact, the sooner you let go, the sooner you’re going to feel the sublime joy that comes from the feeling of freedom. You love that feeling. So, don’t be afraid to release and surrender. The rewards are so very worth it. 



Mercury and Neptune, your modern ruler, unite in a sweet trine aspect this week. This allows for imagination to flow - not like you need an excuse, but if you did, here it is! Your words are healing. Your love is healing. Your friendships are an area where you're blessed. Let the communities that surround you shower you in love, too. Let them inspire you. You’ve done a whole lot of growing recently, and it’s time to celebrate the achievement of your goals.
