How The Apr 16 Full Moon Will Affect You If You're A Capricorn

April's full moon rises on the 16th, and with it, so will emotions. The moon reaches peak fullness at 2:57 p.m. ET and is what the Farmer's Almanac calls a Pink Moon.

The Pink Moon, named for spring blossoms of the same color, is both the first full moon following the spring equinox and the first of the astrological new year (per InStyle). With the sun already in Aries, no matter what your sun sign is, you've likely felt its effects. Spring is a time for nurturing, and Aries, ruled by Mars, only adds fuel to the fire of wanting to fulfill personal desires. This full moon will heighten the need for nurturing as it sits in Libra, Aries' opposing sign.

The way the energy will mix, no matter what your sun or rising sign is, you can expect a reevaluation of your relationships (per Cafe Astrology). This may mean you have to prepare yourself to compromise or balance in unexpected ways this weekend. Aries' fire can help give you the courage you need to stand up for what you need in your relationships or to admit where you've been failing and need to work on yourself.

Unfortunately for Capricorns, this full moon has the potential to bring about major life changes in your personal life, professional life, or both, per Elite Daily. Tread carefully, Capricorn. There's probably going to be some major soul-searching happening this weekend.

These astrological events will affect you this full moon, especially if you're a Capricorn

The fact that the moon will be full April 16 isn't the only variable factoring into how Saturday's energy will impact you, especially if you're a Capricorn.

There will be a close trine between the full moon and Saturn in Aquarius (per InStyle). This alignment will turn up the volume on your emotions, especially as they relate to connections and relationships. According to Cafe Astrology, Saturn — ruler of Capricorn — watches over work ethic, determination, and boundaries.

The April 2022 full moon will also square with Pluto, which can end up feeling simultaneously tense and inspiring. Pluto encourages engagement with your darker side or truths you're not ready to admit yet. This, when combined with the other astrological events, can break you and your heart wide open, Capricorn.

The other astrological event affecting how Capricorns feel the full moon is that Mercury will start to conjunct with Uranus in Taurus. This is happening during a Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in Pisces (via Nylon). When the two conjunctions combine with the energy of the full moon, you can expect lightning in a bottle — or at least, a break from whatever has been blocking you creative flow. This can relate either to creative or work projects you're trying to conquer or, again, back to relationships.

The way the moon and planets are aligning, this weekend will be primed for a breakthrough, Capricorn. Get your journal and tissues ready.

Get ready to reevaluate your relationships during April's full moon

Spring is a new beginning, and for Capricorns, the first full moon of spring is about closure.

Jane Allison, astrology and tarot reader, explained to PopSugar that "[it] is a great time to fully release negative thoughts or relationships that do not have space in our new life that is starting to unfold." She added that this is the perfect time to make amends and be honest with your work or relationship partners about what needs aren't being met. Chani Nicholas suggested that Capricorns should examine their careers this full moon. This isn't the time to plan ahead, but to look at what's going on in your life today and how it's serving you and the community.

Pluto, who rules over power and regeneration, is having a major effect on how you're feeling the full moon. Its influence can end up sparking intense feelings that may show you exactly who or what has been standing in the way of your ability to find harmony in your personal or professional partnerships (per Nylon).

Be mindful of how you communicate and the active role you have to play in your own happiness. As Capricorns, we often find being told our hard work is noticed is enough validation, but that's not the case for others. Lean into the diplomatic energy Libra is bringing to help you objectively look at your relationships and the role you play in them.
