Full Moon July 2023 in Capricorn – Honest Feelings

Full Moon July 2023 Astrology

The Full Moon in Capricorn on July 3, 2023, makes the fortunate trine aspect to the planet of growth and good fortune, Jupiter. So the meaning of the Full Moon July 2023 astrology is emotional, spiritual and material growth.

The July 2023 Full Moon aligns with a fortunate fixed star associated with truthfulness, optimism, and faith. Considering the last New Moon square Neptune brought confusion, suspicion and deception, the July 3 Full Moon is perfect for sharing your feelings openly and honesty to improve strained relationships.

Full Moon July 2023 Horoscope

The Full Moon on Monday, July 3, 2023, is at 11°18′ Capricorn. The Full Moon horoscope below shows the Moon opposite Mercury, which is relatively common. Less common and extremely fortunate is the Full Moon trine Jupiter.

The abundance of other harmonious blue aspects reinforces the fortunate nature of the July 2023 Full Moon astrology. The July 3 Full Moon also aligns with a lucky star called Nunki, with the planetary nature of Jupiter and Mercury.

Full Moon July 2023 Astrology

Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family, and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces, such as work versus home or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.

The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts peak at a Full Moon. So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an honest and balanced look at your relationships. You will see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.

Full Moon Aspects

A Full Moon opposite Mercury on its own can make it harder to understand your feelings and to share them. Polarized thinking can cause confusion and make it harder to relax. However, the Moon trine Jupiter makes relaxing and sharing your feelings easier.

Plus, Mercury aligns with the fortunate fixed star Sirius at 14°23′ Cancer. This Jupiter-Mars star gives honor, renown, wealth, enthusiasm, faithfulness, devotion, passion and resentment and makes its natives custodians, curators and guardians. With Mercury, it brings great business success and help through influential people. [1]

Full Moon trine Jupiter brings good luck, happiness, faith, optimism and generosity. It amplifies your emotions, intuition, imagination and dreaming. You can better understand your feelings and share them more easily. A more relaxed attitude and high spirits are ideal for socializing, recreation and leisure.

Family should be more supportive and comforting of each other. Intimate relationships will benefit from openness and honesty. Mutual respect and understanding can lead to successful new relationships. Growth and prosperity can also come through travel, higher education, business, the law, philosophy, religion and spirituality.

The Constellations

The July 2023 Full Moon is in the Sign of Capricorn. But as the image below shows, it is in the Constellations of Sagittarius. The Signs and the Constellations do not match up. Over the last 2000 years, the Constellations have moved nearly 30° out of alignment with the Signs because of the precession of the equinoxes.

The Zodiac was invented only as a measuring device. The ecliptic line in the image below matches the degrees in the horoscope above. Like the original astrologers, I use the Constellations and fixed stars for interpretation, not the Signs.

Lucky Star

Nunki is the closest major fixed star to the Moon, at 12°43′ Capricorn. It is supposed to be in the vane of the Archer’s arrow.

Fixed star Nunki gives truthfulness, optimism, and a religious mind. [1] Nunki has always portended favorable events for mariners and shipping. [2]

Nunki is like Jupiter and Mercury, giving thoughtfulness, generosity and a philosophical outlook. This is a fortunate star, especially for communication, negotiation, travel, study, business, legal matters, and making plans.

With Moon: Successful writer on science, philosophy, education or agriculture, unorthodox in religion, defeats enemies, many friends, illness of a Saturnian nature. [1]

Full Moon July 2023 Meaning

The July 2023 Full Moon is extremely fortunate because it is trine Jupiter. The trine is the luckiest aspect, and Jupiter is the luckiest planet. The Full Moon also aligns with a Jupiter-Mercury star. Even the technically challenging Moon opposite Mercury looks brighter with Mercury conjunct the brightest star of all, Sirius, a Jupiter-Mars star.

Mercury with Sirius brings business success and help through influential people. The same can be said of the Moon with Nunki. New Moons are generally better for starting new projects. So this Full Moon would be ideal for researching and planning a new business venture, consulting accountants and solicitors, and making helpful contacts.

Emotional Honesty

As well as business and legal matters, Full Moon July 2023 is also perfect for all types of communication; reading, writing, speaking, socializing and negotiating. It is good for expanding your horizons through education and travel. Most of all, this Full Moon is excellent for being honest with yourself about your true feelings, sharing your feelings openly and honestly with loved ones and for emotional and spiritual growth.

Astrologically, a full moon is influenced by the previous new Moon. The June 18 New Moon square Neptune brought confusion, suspicion and deception. And conjunct asteroid Juno that applied primarily to partners. So the July 3 Full Moon trine Jupiter can help you repair strained relationships by sharing your feeling openly and honestly. Counseling would be especially helpful.

The influence of the July 3 Full Moon lasts for two weeks up to the July 18 New Moon. This waning moon phase is good for releasing and letting go, resting, healing, regenerating, contemplating, meditating, decluttering, harvesting, pruning, and cutting hair.

  1. Does it mean anything if the full moon lands on my vertex? Because that’s where this one’s landing, in my fifth house.

    • Hi Sasiquarius.

      A Full Moon conjunct Vertex suggests destiny encounters that change the direction of your life, especially destiny encounters with women. It draws certain people toward you for karmic reasons. It also gives a sense of destiny, about what you are here to do. The Vertex Point represents destiny encounters but also mystical experiences. According to Alice Portman, the Vertex axis as a ‘doorway’ that gives access to other realities. The doorway of the Vertex axis can open to many different worlds. It can describe that which delights, which gives a touch of magic to life as well as that which can bring terror and horror. The Vertex axis tends to intensify anything with which it has contact.

      • Wow! Thank you for that. My best friend is sun & moon in Cancer with her AC conjunct my vertex. I have just instructed her to buy lottery tickets.

  3. The Nunki-Sirius Full Moon Canada chart

    Canada chart featured at Mass Consciousness Neptune retrograde (Age harmonic, 156 year anniversary). Also featured at comet C/2022-E3 perigee, Moon conjunct Canada Moon, and for a third time, Nikki-Sirius Full Moon

    It seems, out-of-the-blue, China Art Balloon now termed an embarrassment, but in my astrology opinion, derived from Neptune trine Pluto aspect commentary: Robert Hand pg 465, Planets in Transit, ‘behaving in ways not appropriate to the situation’. And hinting what they are going to do if it happens again: stay in control of your power, stay away from the performance drama, ie. think Lunar node Sign cusps

  4. In my case Saturn is 12 cap, Pallas 10 cap, Vertex 9 cap all in 5. Black sun and black moon 12 Cancer.
    No idea, but there is something coming.

    • Someone decides to hold their outside wedding a touch too near the estate septic system?

  5. Mass consciousness aspect, Pluto trine Neptune, Canada age harmonic, exact July 21, Neptune 29Vir50, Pluto 29Cap55.

    add to this July 21 Mundane, Heliocentric and Geocentric.

    Helio chart, Grand Cross with Nunki-Sirius axis

    Note the Mars trine Pluto-Earth-Moon at the same chart position, Virgo-Capricorn late decan, featured harmonic Pluto trine Neptune. A combination of Pluto-Neptune themes, Earth and Air, or moving from Earth to Air?

    July 21 geocentric, Sun opposite Pluto on MC/IC

    If you wish to dig deeper, at the moment I’m looking at January 18, 2000 meteorite, Tagish Lake, Asteroid 308 Polyxo Lightcurve.

  6. “July 21 geocentric, Sun opposite Pluto on MC/IC”


    Art harmonic yod, 100% orb, Venus sextile Haumae, Neptune apex. Mass
    Multi-generational yod, Neptune sextile Pluto-MC, Venus apex. Consciousness

    Jamie’s most recent dominant triangle pattern: example, NNode square Pluto, Pluto quincunx Venus, Venus trine NNode. Solar Eclipse, the contact point between square and trine, start there.

  7. Oh my gosh, I finally get Jupiter. As much as Jupiter can be gotten. Full moon also trined my sun Jupiter conjunction. Revelation was awesome. On practical side it will help me better understand them Sags.
