The lunar cycle hits its apex with the full moon in sidereal Capricorn in Shravana on 3 August. We were guided to nurture ourselves at the beginning of the lunar cycle and balance with a grounding routine. The full moon is a culmination of the work we put into ourselves.
As the feminine side of Saturn, Capricorn is guiding us to be patient and persistent about our self-care. Shravana is the nakshatra related to listening to the soul and following the guidance. It guides the collective to engage in spiritual practices (yoga and meditation); start new ventures; and/or to enjoy learning new things related to languages, music, and philosophy.
This full moon is illuminating what the soul desires to feel grounded, safe, and nourished. The root chakra is ruled by Saturn; the feminine energy of Capricorn can be addressed through yoga asana poses that are grounding.

New and full moons operate on an axis. This lunar cycle belongs to Cancer and is balanced with Capricorn. The full moon energy of the practical goat needs to be balanced with the watery crab. Be open to being guided to engage in activities that include sharing emotions.
