From folklore about werewolves to modern stories from nurses and EMTs about crazy incidents taking place during the full moon, one thing is for certain: humans are fascinated by the magical, mystical forces that seem to be at work at this time every month (via Your World Healthcare).

Capricorn traits

Capricorns, born between December 22 and January 19, are earth signs and known to be pragmatic, powerfully hard working, and loyal (via Allure). They adhere to a stsrict set of personal values that they will not betray. Their sense of right and wrong is deeply held, and while they tend to have major career goals and are very serious about reaching them, they will not go against those values to get where they want to be. They sincerely want to make the world a better place and to make life better and easier for other people. As such, both their professional and personal lives tend to demonstrate these desires. 

Dedicated, loyal, endlessly supportive friends and lovers, Capricorns will go above and beyond expectation over and over and over again to show those they care about that they are loved. But if someone betrays their trust or proves incapable of returning the level of dedication that Capricorns bring, they will not hesitate to tell you so and to put you quickly in your place with a clear, concise (but never cruel) tongue lashing. 

Naturally gentle yet impassioned people, Capricorns are sensitive, caring, and among the hardest workers you will ever meet. So how will this full moon in Aquarius on August 11th affect them?   

How the August 11th full moon will affect Capricorn

August 11th's full moon takes place in Aquarius, which is an air sign, but the season this moon occurs in is Leo, which is a passionate fire sign (via Vice). This creates an interesting balance between airy Aquarius and fiery Leo, allowing us to look with cool heads at what in our lives has been setting us ablaze. Also called the Sturgeon Moon, this particular lunation is a perfect opportunity to look at our lives and the world around us with new perspective and new eyes.

For grounded Capricorn, this full moon is the ideal opportunity to tap into your creative side (via Today). Whatever projects you've been dreaming of starting, whether painting, drawing, writing, gardening, or photography, allowing your creative juices to flow will help you break out of a work/life imbalance that might be burning you out right now. We know how much you care about reaching all of your professional and personal goals, and that you are always putting your family and your coworkers first, but you can't pour from an empty pitcher. Take the time to create, just for you, and watch what magic it can create in your life.
