Full Moon In Capricorn Rituals To Do This July 16th To Support Your Long Term

A full moon in Capricorn and a partial lunar eclipse aspected by Pluto are both in the cards for July 16th this year. With these transits in astrology, it's important for the zodiac signs to tap into the energy of this power-packed day with these grounding full moon rituals.

But first, here are some basics for the uninitiated:

  1. A lunar eclipse marks both a beginning and an end. Steer clear of setting intentions on July 16th... unless you are okay with them ending in the near future.
  2. Capricornian energy is very goal-oriented, so now is the best time to review your resolutions and see if you are on track or need to change directions.
  3. If you feel grounded and stable on the inside, life will mirror it on the outside. If you have been feeling out of whack lately, you know what you need to do.

With that, let's dive in and check out these 4 full moon rituals to harness the energy of the Capricorn full moon on July 16th.

1. Hug a tree. Literally.

Well, there's no better way to ground yourself than to go out in nature and walk barefoot on the grass. But since the full moon on July 16th is in Capricorn, the oldest of all the earth signs, we will ground ourselves by leaning on the elders of the plant kingdom: trees.

Head outside and look for a tree with a wide and stable trunk. Then go hug it for at least ten minutes.

If that makes you uncomfortable, just sit at the foot of the tree and lean against it for ten minutes. Feel its strength against your back and let it support you. You can even meditate and ask the tree for some guidance. (This may reach you in the form of mental images or a general feeling in your body.)

Just remember to carry a yoga mat or outdoor cushion with you if you are doing the latter because the tree's base may not be comfortable.

2. Plant a sapling.

A Capricorn full moon is an earthy moon. So anything plant-based goes on this day, right from eating vegan to planting a sapling for your window sill.

Just remember: plant something that will grow and remain with you over the years because Capricornian energy is all about the long-term. No potato plants and the like!

3. Review your New Year's resolutions.

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet of hard work, discipline, and delayed gratification. So if you lost track of your New Year's resolutions, now is the time to review them and see if you can do anything to get yourself back on track.

And don't just review and close the book. Make plans for the coming week, month, and quarter. That's the respectful thing to do when Saturn's eyes are turned on you.

4. End that toxic relationship.

Exude the no-nonsense attitude of Capricorn by cutting the cord on a toxic love affair. Whether that be a stalemate relationship with a perpetual flaker or one where you feel controlled and manipulated. All you need to do is speak your truth and let the universe take care of the rest.

It's also a great time to revisit your exes and give them a piece of your mind. After all, mercury retrograde is still going strong, and that means revisiting the past and putting those ghosts to rest.
