Capricorn Moon Meaning
As one of the twelve zodiac signs, Capricorn represents determination, responsibility, and ambition. Symbolized by the sea goat, Capricorn will climb any mountain to pursue its goals, and swim deep into the wise waters of the ocean of knowledge to tackle any problem. Thus, the Capricorn moon tends to invite a disciplined, organized, and focused energy towards achieving goals. It is a time to harness reliability and self-responsibility.
Practical, the Capricorn moon’s meaning can be empowering in setting your gaze towards the highest of your goals and ambition—drawing up a plan on how to get from A to Z, to build lasting achievements and results. This lunar placement is profound for structure and stability. Use the meaning of the Capricorn moon to re-organize and strategize. Invoke abundance and blessings, or look and plan ahead. During this phase, all individuals can experience increased practicality, self-discipline, and perseverance. The cardinal aspect of earth, Capricorn is about building and manifestation, so tune into this powerful energy for some moon manifestation. Of course, the energy of a given lunation can vary based on other astrological factors. Read on to learn about the Capricorn moon meaning for the next lunation.
This Upcoming Capricorn Lunation
Capricorn Full Moon, Monday July 3rd 2023
The next significant Capricorn lunation is the Capricorn full moon on Monday July 3rd 2023, amidst Cancer season. Halfway from new years, it’s a good time to check in with your goals. Use the Capricorn moon to revamp your motivation and ambitions. But under the guise of the Cancer season (and with the Cancer new moon two weeks away), consider goals that nurture and feed your soul for personal growth.
This lunation is also a super moon, which means the moon will be at the closest point in its orbit to earth. Coupled with being closer to earth, Capricorn moon can certainly feel more emphasized and magnetic. You can learn more about the magic of Capricorn in my book The Modern Witchcraft Book of Astrology, and corresponding drinks and ingredients for the moon in Capricorn, in Moon, Magic, Mixology.
With the moon ruling the classical element of water, tuning into the moon with a liquid libation and a refreshing sip is one of my favorite pastimes. Let’s explore some Capricorn moon drinks, so you can cheers to the stars!
What to look for in a Capricorn Drink
When it comes to working with the moon that creates the ebbs of the tides, and the flow of feelings within, I can imagine no better way than with liquid libations. When planning a potion for the Capricorn moon, there are a few angles to take:
- You may consider Capricorn drinks that inspire wisdom and perspective—beverages with ingredients that will inspire thinking ahead and building in the long term. A drink that inspires reflection on what goals to set and how to get there, regardless of how steep the climb.
- A sign of tradition, you may want a Capricorn cocktail to raise in toast with family and friends, or a traditional drink.
- A powerful manifestation sign, you might also consider drinks for abundance, prosperity, and achievement.
- While planning, organizing, and thinking ahead, consider sipping Capricorn drinks that motivate you and inspire confidence in pursuing ambitions
With that in mind, let’s dip our Capricorn tails into some liquid libations and potions.
