The Buck Moon was originally named as such because the antlers of male deer, known as bucks, are in full-growth mode during these periods of time. The Buck Moon this year is also a full moon in Capricorn. This Earth sign’s energy will be infused into our lives. Capricorn is the tenth zodiac sign on the wheel and is the polarity of Cancer.
This means that both zodiac signs hold ties to the legacies we build, as well as come from. Cancer is tied to our domestic lives, heritage, ancestors, past and the home, whereas Capricorn is linked to professional success, career matters, public recognition and the legacies we will build toward. They can also be seen as the duality between private and public life.

This could be a promotion, lucrative job offer, new client or even an award. Use this energy to stand in your power and show the world what makes you memorable.
TAURUS (APRIL 20 – MAY 20)
Open your wings and soar, Taurus. The Supermoon is pushing you to open your mind and spirit to new horizons. You could literally or figuratively be ready to stampede into new territory, leaving your comfort zone behind. A few possible shifts could be laid at your feet: a culmination to a long-distance travelling plan, overseas relationship or international business endeavor, or even a sudden decision to relocate or immigrate. If you are involved in academics or seek to, the Supermoon may provide you the impetus to see progress. Last, you work in the media or publishing industries, you could see a breakthrough now.
GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 20)
Where you stand in your partnerships and how you share will be up for discussion at this time, Gemini. You libido could be soaring through the roof, bringing you the urge to merge. However, if things are a bit rocky with you and a significant other, expect that it’s time to hash it out—and if neither of you are happy, you may separate and go your own ways. This Supermoon could also cause a shift around big financial matters, especially in regards to investments, assets, bonuses, royalty checks, venture capital or even a scholarship.

On one hand, this could be a time of euphoric union for you and another party, as you commit or make long-term promises. A sudden engagement or decision to move in could be at hand. However, if you’re on rocky territory, you could decide it’s time to scuttle on your way. Singles should look for someone who carries LTR-potential.
LEO (JULY 23 – AUGUST 22)
Take a breather before you hit the grindstone once again, Leo, because the Supermoon is going to make you immensely busy! You could be putting the finishing touches on a major project for your employer or even making a transition from one job to the next.

Last, if you’re committed, this could help you to reignite your spark, spend time with your kids or even bring news of a pregnancy!
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 22)
A shift will arrive in regards to your domestic life, Libra. This could bring a decision to move, renovate or relocate altogether! Some Libras will see a transition between roommates even.

What else should I know about the Buck Moon?
Full moons are the culmination of the lunar cycle. We have between 12 to 13 full moons every single year. Full moons are when the sun and moon stand opposite within the sky, bringing great radiance to the moon’s reflective light. Energetically, full moons can be quite emotional and intense, as they can bring endings, turning points, breakthroughs or breakdowns. Supermoons are brighter and larger in the sky and are also more powerful than a regular full moon. This full moon will be tied to the events that you took in the days following January 2, 2022. Similar situations and discussions will appear again now.
When analyzing the cosmic energy of this Supermoon, we can see many significant planetary aspects that will further color the vibration of the lunation. First and foremost, the Supermoon will stand opposite Mercury, the planet of the mind and communication. Uranus, the planet of genius and surprise, will also be spectacularly angled to it. This means we will have sudden mental breakthroughs, new ideas and revelations that happen near this time. Important realizations are likely to appear. Change and excitement should fill the air and we may be stimulated to be social, take chances and even connect with unique or unusual people.
Astrology 101: Your guide to the stars
The Supermoon smiles upon Neptune, the planet of imagination, which should bring a romantic, spiritual and artistic vibe, but is approaching a conjunction with mighty Pluto, the planet of rebirth, which could bring compulsive or overwhelming psychic visions, dreams or emotions. Saturn, the planetary ruler of this lunation, is especially important to watch at this time, as he will be in a loving ballet with Venus, the planet of pleasure, which could bring stability to relationships, projects and investments. However, we are still feeling the weight of Uranus attacking Saturn, as we feel friction between tradition and practicality and unconventional and modern attitudes and new horizons.
