Thursday July 14 is a Full Moon in the stable Earth sign Capricorn. Like sister Earth sign Taurus, Capricorn is grounded, pragmatic, and earthy. Capricorn has a reputation for being cold, distant, and all business — but that is not so. Instead, Capricorn has worthy goals and ideals, and can do the work necessary to make dreams a reality. Capricorn correlates to the Chinese astrology sign Ox, who is hardworking, dependable, and ethical.
Under the influence of this Capricorn full Moon, it is fortunate to use the remaining two weeks of this lunar cycle to address Capricorn goals; organize your workplace, organize your finances, and get up-to-date on all practical matters. An Earth sign Moon is also time to focus on health and nutrition, and is perfect for gardening and planting. Gardening is best done during Earth sign and Water sign Moons.

Luck to stay steady and strong is for all, and is especially powerful for the Earth signs Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo and those born in Ox, Serpent, and Phoenix (Rooster) years.
