Post-summer solstice, your emotional needs have probably been demanding all of your attention due to the sun’s current trek through Cancer. Despite the fleeting nature of some of these desires, this time of year’s been allowing you to become acquainted with your instinctive urges and cravings in new, intuitive ways, which has been deeply satisfying. However, with so much focus on chasing after things that soothe and comfort you, there hasn’t been much room for practical decision-making. Fortunately, as the upcoming full moon (or, in this case, supermoon) prepares to illuminate the skies, you’ll finally be feeling the urge to prioritize goals that may require you to think logically, emotions aside. While everyone’s bound to feel this shift, the July 2023 Super Buck Moon will affect four zodiac signs that tend to thrive under this energy.

Taking place in the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn, July’s rare supermoon is highlighting every sign’s desire to accomplish goals that align with longterm stability. This will be most impactful for the cardinal signs of the zodiac, due to their innate ability to take action and initiate new pursuits. While Cancer season’s allowed the cardinal signs to actively seek emotional fulfillment, Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn individuals will be prompted to shift their efforts to pursuits that require discipline and preparation, without allowing their emotions to be entirely in the driver’s seat. As the Super Buck Moon takes place, these four signs will be considering the structures and regulations that need to be in place in order to truly feel secure.

What’s a Supermoon?

This month’s full moon is commonly referred to as a supermoon, due to la luna’s closeness in proximity to Earth. The moon will actually appear to be about 7% larger than usual, making it the largest supermoon of the year. While this phenomenon does take place about three to five times annually, this one is definitely worth paying attention to. In fact, since it’s happening right before Independence Day, it will be impossible to miss.

What’s a Buck Moon?

A Buck Moon takes place every July, as the first full moon of the summer season. This full moon’s nickname comes from male deer, because they tend to shed their old antlers around this time in order for stronger ones to grow in their place.

This year, July’s buck moon will take place on July 3 at 7:39 a.m. EST, so be sure to mark your calendar.
