Pretty much every day of summer feels like a holiday—after all, the sun, BBQs, and swimming can make it feel like a 24/7 party. But the universe has something extra-special coming your way to make this time of year even more epic.

The Full Strawberry Moon in Capricorn is happening on June 21, 2024. That just so happens to be the same day as the summer solstice—i.e. the “official” start of summer—meaning you can kick back with your buddies and catch a glorious full moon while toasting to the best time of year.

This isn’t just a cool coincidence: It’ll also make you search for more balance in your life, according to Donna Page, a certified astrologer with a professional counseling degree in Atlanta. Naturally, there’s a lot more to it than that.

Here’s what else you can expect from the Full Strawberry Moon in Capricorn, and how it'll impact your life going forward.

So, what is the Full Strawberry Moon in Capricorn?

Backing up a sec here: The moon goes through different phases, and a full moon is when it's the biggest and brightest.

This full moon's name comes from a mix of Native American, Colonial American, and European sources. The Full Strawberry Moon gets its name because it usually happens at the same time that strawberries are ready to be picked in the northeastern United States, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac. While it doesn’t mean the moon will look like an actual strawberry, you can definitely nosh on some fresh fruit while checking it out for a full-circle effect.

In the astrology world, each full moon lines up with a different astrological sign, creating a special vibe. This particular full moon is linked with Capricorn, which is known for its hardworking and ambitious nature.

How will the Full Strawberry Moon in Capricorn impact your zodiac sign?

There are a few different ways you’ll feel the full moon’s impact, with the biggest being it'll push you to find a work-life balance. “You’ll think about your responsibility to your career, as well as your responsibility to yourself,” Page says.

This means you’ll be well-aware that it’s a perfect beach day while you’re hard at work—and you’ll have to consider how to take care of you while getting your bills paid. It can be as simple as hitting up a friend’s pool after work, or actually using some of that time off you have saved up. But making sure you’re prioritizing self-care while taking care of your responsibilities is crucial.

At the same time, you’ll feel a push and pull between sharing your life with the rest of the world and keeping some things private. Maybe you’re not ready to go Instagram-official with that special someone just yet, or maybe you’ll start a new hobby you don’t tell everyone about. Keeping some things just for you will make them feel extra-fulfilling right now.

That need to keep things private will also seep into your work life. You’ll feel yourself wanting to create very clear boundaries between who you are at work and the rest of yourself. “There’s a battle between being able to take care of your private life and who you are out in the world,” Page says.

So yeah, it’s a good idea to go to work events here and there, but it’s also totally okay if you want to skip the 25th work happy hour of the year to spend time with your close friends instead. There will be more, after all.

The full moon will impact all zodiac signs, but Page says that Capricorn and Cancer will feel it the most.

How will the Full Strawberry Moon in Capricorn impact your future?

Acing that work-life balance is the goal for most people, and even an act of the universe won’t magically put all the pieces together for you. But making it a priority can make a big difference—which ultimately translates to a happier you.

During this full moon, you’ll also find out that learning to keep some things to yourself will feel so, so good. You don’t need to morph into a secret agent or anything, but you may start waiting to share good news with others a little more, just to see how you feel about it first. Once you’ve got it all figured out, by all means…

Finally, picking and choosing who you want to be in the world is a great life skill. You don’t owe anyone anything, and having the confidence to choose what others know will serve you well, now and in the future.

When is the next full moon?

The next full moon is July 21, 2024 in the sign of Capricorn. During this full moon, you’ll be ready to grow more as a person while also finding plenty of time to dive into all that summer fun. For now, enjoy the balance you've worked so hard to get.
