“FULL MOON rising in CAPRICORN with Venus and Jupiter lighting up our night skies. This time calls for balancing all the things that pull at us, and for finding a way to tend to both our responsibilities and our need for self care. Time to connect with the ancient wisdom of the Earth and see what is illumined…-Via Mystic Mamma Astral Insights

According to our transcendental guru over at Mystic Mamma, this month’s full moon in Capricorn is going to be all the biz. According to astrologer Molly Hall, this is a time to dream big and find inner treasures, unlocking hidden pockets of pure creativity and vitality. Like everything tough in life, getting the rewards of July’s first of two full moons for the month will be no easy feat–you’re going to have to do some inner soul searchin’ during some trying moments. From astrologer Dipali Desai at Celestial Space AstrologyYou need to strike a balance between the two opposites [professional needs & personal or family needs]  so that there is greater harmony and flow.” With so much at stake, bring out the inner moon goddess in you with some lovely moon rituals.  To truly  make the most of it, head to some of these popular spots in Oakland to tap into some major moon energy.
