Solar & Lunar Rhythms: Solstice & Capricorn Full Moon

This week offers a potent opportunity for manifestation with the June solstice and the Capricorn full moon occurring so closely together. The solstice happens on the 20th, and the full moon follows on the 21st, creating a two-day overlap on June 20th and 21st. 

When a solar cycle (the solstice) coincides with a lunar cycle (full or new moon), it amplifies their energies, making this a particularly powerful time. Make sure to take full advantage of it. Below are suggestions for harnessing the energy of this period, including specific tips for the solstice and the full moon.

Utilize the Special Creation Window: 

There is a three day window of creation boosting energy for the new moons, full moons, and Wheel of the Year points—the day before, the day of the point, and the day after. All three days provide a window of opportunity to work with and energize your co-creations. During this three-day window, you’ll find the energy most beneficial for bringing desires into physical form. In this case use the two days when the energies overlap...June 20 and 21st. 


Energize your creations by choosing a piece of music and actively moving your body with the intent of energizing your creations.  


Create a simple or more elaborate ceremony on a solstice or Wheel of the Year point and during any new moon or full moon you feel you need one. Design your ceremony to help you boost the energy you need in your creations at that time.  

Divination Work: 

Boost your insights for any of the points by adding an elemental card reading from the Elemental Forces of Creation Oracle to receive a direct message from each element about how they can guide you. (See more below). 

Dynamically Anchor Your Creations Early in the Year: 

If possible, utilize the Capricorn new moon or Cancer full moon each year to help you anchor your creation intentions. 

Decorate Your Home or Altar: 

The Wheel of the Year points are wonderful opportunities for decorating your home and altar to reflect the energy. This will connect you more deeply to the season.

Solstice means “Sun Standstill”, and Summer Solstice, in the Northern Hemisphere, brings us the longest day of the year. Find time to bask in the bright abundant light summer brings and enjoy the harvest as things begin to ripen around you. This is a wonderful day to consciously witness the sunrise and appreciate the blessings the solar light and fuel bring into your life.


In your creations, Summer Solstice brings the opportunity to evaluate your progress and add needed ingredients for a successful harvest. If you’ve been working with the timings since last Winter Solstice and tracking your creations, look back to see how far you’ve come since then. Make honoring your progress and celebrating your successes part of your Summer Solstice celebration. 


As you honor the Wheel of the Year and work with it year after year, you deepen your appreciation for each phase within its cycles. Since summer is a time of heat and light, this window gives us the opportunity to enjoy the luscious taste of ripe fruit, splash in cooling waters, relax in the shade, and spend a lot of time with family and friends—all perfect expressions of the family-loving, nurturing sign of Cancer.


With Summer Solstice comes the ever-so-subtle shift of the days growing shorter. While it will be barely noticeable for a few months, the light gently begins slowly decreasing from this point through to the Winter Solstice when it begins growing again. 


Choose the one or two ideas you need most to work with, then focus on those. Intentions function best when there are only one or two to concentrate on in any cycle. 


Personal Action Suggestions for Summer Solstice:

  • Honor the abundant Earth mother.

  • Create a ceremony theme around fulfillment and manifestation.

  • Feel and express your passion and vibrancy for life. 

  • Work with abundance and dance to fully activate and allow the energy of abundance to flow through your body.

  • Celebrate the fairies.

  • Work with the hot summer solar fire as an element of transformation.

  • Work with and honor herbs and the green growing season.  

Business/Professional Action Suggestions for Summer Solstice:

  • Give thanks for all that is growing in your business at this time. 

  • Connect with the Summer Solstice and ask how you can increase the abundant financial flow in your business. 

  • Notice what is ripening in your business. Do your creations need anything in order to nurture them to fruition?

  • Appreciate your business relationships and client community. 

  • Spend some time in reflection about the second half of the year. Tune into what is needed during the second phase. 

  • Go for a walk in the hot light of the sun, and ask how you can heat up your creations in order to spring them to light or add solar fuel to increase their growth. 

The full moon in Capricorn, with the sun in Cancer, offers a window of opportunity to connect to responsible nurturing. Capricorn functions as the most responsible sign of all the gates of awareness, and Cancer is dedicated to nurturing. Together, they will speak to you on multiple levels. Responsible nurturing begins on the personal level as Capricorn/Cancer reminds you to deepen your ability to take good care of yourself. In other words, put on your own oxygen mask before you help those around you. What messages does this duo have for you in relation to your own responsible self-care? 

Next, the combination calls for you to take a look at your responsible nurturing of immediate family, friends, circle of influence, and business. With Capricorn, you not only have to look at where you need to take greater responsibility, but also at where you might be taking too much responsibility. Part of the job of this duo is determining how to responsibly nurture, which may include empowering others to take responsibility for their nurturance as well. In other words, instead of fishing for them and creating dependence, focus on creating independence, interdependence, and sustainability by teaching others to fish for themselves. 

Finally, Capricorn calls for you to look at your responsibility in the larger context, to the planet, global relationships, and nurturing seven generations to come. This window provides a wonderful time to tune in and see how you can make a difference in the world. Create a prayer group to uplift those who may be suffering. Take food to the hungry. Any small step toward assisting the collective during this Capricorn/Cancer window will make a significant contribution energetically.  

On each of these levels, Capricorn calls for solid steps toward responsible nurturing. So if you need to start with taking care of yourself, make an appointment for your health screenings, replenish yourself at the spa, or responsibly nurture your finances. To honor those around you, tune in to where you can appreciate someone who has taught you to fish for yourself, by thanking a teacher, your parents, or a friend who has helped you in a time of need. And globally, take at least one solid step toward responsibly nurturing humanity in this window. 


Choose the one or two ideas you need most to work with, then focus on those. Intentions function best when there are only one or two to concentrate on in any cycle.  

Personal Action Suggestions for Capricorn Full Moon:

  • Sit in the light of the full moon and ask it to fill you up with nurturing energy. 

  • Give thanks to your body and make any needed health appointments.

  • Take solid grounded steps toward your financial well-being. 

  • Make a list of what you need to do to responsibly take care of your home and family.

  • Contribute to the collective in a responsibly nurturing way. 

  • Send appreciation to someone who has responsibly nurtured you.

  • Thank the Earth for all she contributes to your life and honor her in some way.

  • Appreciate Nature during this full moon. Just as those around you respond to your gratitude, so does the Earth Mother herself. Take a clue from the indigenous cultures and sprinkle a blessing gift of cornmeal or tobacco on the ground with your prayers. 

Business/Professional Action Suggestions for Capricorn Full Moon:

  • Notice what needs attention in order to responsibly nurture your business. 

  • Create a list of business administration details that need to be handled.

  • Think of ways your business can add to the good for seven generations to come.

  • Clarify more ways your business can contribute to humanity overall.

  • Appreciate your business skills teachers and pass on their lessons and teachings as you mentor others.

  • Make a plan for the next six months of grounded steps to build your business.

  • Create a ceremony to work with responsibly nurturing your business’s financial flow.

Receive Elemental Guidance:

During this window it's very powerful to tune into guidance from each of the elements. If you have an Elemental Forces of Creation Oracle, you may want to draw cards for additional guidance from each element. See the section on Deckible to download a three day trial of the Elemental Forces of Creation Oracle and follow the steps to receive guidance from each element.


Give thanks to Earth and ask                                                                        “What do my creations need at this time for abundant growth?”


Give thanks to Water and ask                                                                        “What do my creations need at this time for abundant growth?”


Give thanks to Air and ask                                                                              “What do my creations need at this time for abundant growth?”


Give thanks to Fire and ask                                                                               “What do my creations need at this time for abundant growth?”


Give thanks to Spirit and ask                                                                          “What do my creations need at this time for abundant growth?” 


Now ask the unified field of all of the elements and Spirit for a unified message for what your creations need for abundant growth.
