July 2020: Tarot spread for the full moon in Capricorn

Tarot spread for the July 2020 full moon in Capricorn

The July 2020 full moon falls in the sign of Capricorn. Symbolized by the mountain goat, which maintains perfect balance while it climbs over precarious rock ledges, the Capricorn archetype is one of disciplined and dogged determination towards the attainment of our worldly desires.

Spiritually, the Capricorn archetype teaches us about integrity and helps us to harness the ability to plan our work, and stick to it, no matter what. In these times of 24×7 consumption culture, it’s easy to be addicted with shiny object syndrome and forget about our goals and plans. Capricorn teaches us about the meaning of integrity: to align ourselves with our highest ideals and actualize our potential.  

The July 2020 full moon also highlights our foundations and roots; our closest relationships and the things and people that feel like home. It highlights communication, collaboration, and time spent in the company of family and friends.

This Capricorn moon also asks us to take a closer look at what brings us mental peace and emotional satisfaction, and how we can root more deeply into our own personal truth.

Astro-tarot influences for the July 2020 full moon

To throw some more light on the July full moon astrology, let’s take a look at the astro-tarot influences of this lunation. The Capricorn full moon falls in decan 2, which is represented by the Three of Pentacles. This is to be interpreted in conjunction with The Devil, which is associated with Capricorn.

The 3 of Pentacles represents strong foundations, attention to detail, and commitment and focus. The Devil is a card of illusions and typically negative attachments. Of feeling trapped in negative cycles of behaviour without realising that it is in our power to break free of them.

This, then, speaks to the need to strengthen our foundations. To take a closer look at the weeds and cracks that may be appearing in the way we live our lives.

It’s very easy to allow the overculture – the dominant culture of our society – to color our lives and govern our actions. We can very easily spend our days caught in the grind; tied in to consumer culture; always on the lookout for the next legal fix that will give us a momentary high.

It’s much more difficult to root down into who we are and what we want. To figure out our drivers and core desires. To have a clear-eyed view of what ails us, why we feel unmoored, and to then take responsibility to bring meaning and rootedness back to our lives.

And clearly, what we are being called to focus on with this Capricorn moon, is our foundations. The bedrock on which we have created this life. How sound is it? Where do we need to tend it? What do we need to focus on? What seed are we planting at this time? {The very question that July’s tarot and energy reading posed to us.}

The Sabian Symbol for Capricorn 13 degrees is An Ancient Bas-Relief Carved In Granite Remains A Witness To A Long-Forgotten Culture.

As a lover of old building and ancient ruins, I’m ever fascinated by the stories that ruins tell us. What lessons do those ancient stones hold? What wisdom would they impart, if only they could speak.

Another thing that always strikes me is how even the biggest empires fall. Of how many people lived their lives and passed on, unknown and forgotten in the annals of time. It never fails to put things in perspective for me – the worries and cares that seem so big and urgent, in the larger scheme of things, hardly even matter.

What matters is the legacy we leave behind. Our names may never ring down the ages, but our deeds may well be remembered by a generation or two that comes after us, and sometimes, that is enough.
