Fourth of July weekend is the best time to catch up with friends over BBQs, take in some fireworks, and head to the beach. But this year, the universe wants you to squeeze in a smidge of deep thinking in between all that summer fun.

It’s all thanks to the Full Buck Supermoon in Capricorn. Happening on July 3, 2023, this lunar event will encourage you mull over where you’re headed in life, according to Donna Page, a certified astrologer in Atlanta. But, ya know, it also wants you to embrace all the joy life has to offer, too. Basically, there’s a lot to unpack here.

Here’s what else your zodiac sign can expect from the Full Buck Supermoon in Capricorn, and how it’ll impact your life going forward.

Wait, what is the Full Buck Supermoon in Capricorn, exactly?

As you probably know by now, the moon goes through different phases. A full moon is when it looks like a big, round ball in the sky. A supermoon is when the moon orbits closer-than-usual to Earth, making it look even larger than it usually does.

In astrology, each moon syncs up with a particular astrological sign, lending it a certain vibe. And, when it’s a supermoon, that vibe is even stronger.

This particular full moon’s name comes from a mix of Native American, Colonial American, and European sources. The Full Buck Supermoon gets its name because it usually happens when the antlers of bucks (a.k.a. male deer) are in full growth mode, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac. ICYDK, bucks shed their antlers and regrow them annually, hence why the name of this full moon remains the same year after year.

How will the Full Buck Supermoon in Capricorn impact your zodiac sign?

This Full Buck Supermoon has a lot going on—kind of like your schedule right now! For starters, the moon will make you do a double take on where you’re at with your career. Are you getting all the recognition you deserve for all those late nights you’ve put in, or is someone else taking credit for your hard work? Now's the time to look over the situation with a fine-toothed comb.

Meanwhile, you’ll think over your personal goals. Like, the year is halfway over and you still haven’t mastered a pullup yet, which you swore you’d do this year. It’s actually a good thing—the full supermoon will push you to get going so you can check that off your bucket list and move on to other awesome aspirations.

But because nothing in life is simple, Venus is also vibrating with Uranus, a planet that wants you to make some change. You’ll suddenly be inspired to do all the things you haven’t done before, like wakeboarding and picking crabs. But it’ll also make you wonder about bigger stuff, like whether you should pack up your entire life and move to a new city.

Oh, you thought that was it? Nope! Venus, the planet of love and pleasure, is also pushing you to just get out and have fun. You’ll say yes to pretty much every social event that comes your way this weekend, leaving you totally wiped (but seriously happy) by the end.

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

How will the Full Buck Supermoon in Capricorn impact your future?

First, pausing to think about how things are going at work will always benefit your long-term career trajectory. If you realize you feel pretty happy and fulfilled, you’ll just keep on keeping on. But if you feel like all of your paper cuts, sweat, and tears are going unnoticed, it may be time to consider pursuing other paths that'll help you achieve both professional and personal fulfillment.

Plus, getting a cosmic kick in the pants to go after your personal goals will have you motivated to tackle even more of 'em. Latte art, a yoga inversion, new sex moves…nothing is off limits for you.

Finally, just getting out there and living—which means taking just about every opportunity for fun—is frigging exhilarating. You’ll realize how much spontaneity has been missing from your life and try to add a little more in going forward.

When is the next full moon?

The next full moon is on August 1, 2023 in the sign of Aquarius. During this full moon, you’ll try to shake off negative feelings like jealousy and fear and only focus on good vibes.

For now, get out there and do all the things—because life is short and oh so sweet.
