Sign and phase change today, August 3rd. Gibbous Moon at 1:42pm; enters Capricorn 8:37pm EDT. Cap encourages us to set our goals at the top of the mountain. Gibbous tells us to get prepared before the Full Moon show on the 7th.
Are you feeling any effects from Capricorn’s Full Buck Moon? Capricorn is reputed to be a somber sign, even though it’s graced with a very dry wit and a sense of humor that can be infectious. It is ruled by crotchety Saturn, though, and he has a knack for bringing on a case of the blues from time to time.
If the blues (or grief) has you in its grips under this Capricorn Moon, I have two essential oil remedies for you to try.
