Every year, the full Moon happens just once (on a rare case twice) in each of the 12 astrological signs. Full Moons are filled with intense, often erratic, energy, but are also an extremely good time to get rid of things that are no longer serving their purpose and move on. Learn how to make the best use of every full Moon -- all year 'round! [Note: In honor of this Saturday's Super Moon in Capricorn, we'll start there ... ]

CAPRICORN: Capricorn full Moons take place when the Sun is in Cancer (End of June to end of July)
Let some love and compassion into your heart. Capricorn full Moons are intense periods where everyone feels compelled to keep up with the Joneses. Learn to move on from seeking status and into a world of authenticity.

AQUARIUS: Aquarius full Moons take place when the Sun is in Leo (End of July to end of August)
Stop hiding in a group. Your individual spirit is beautiful and it's time to show it to the world. Sometimes it’s easier to tag along with a group, but Aquarius full Moons are pushing us to make our own unique mark on the world by going it alone and blazing our own path.

PISCES: Pisces full Moons take place when the Sun is in Virgo (End of August to end of September)
Stop being so clingy and judgmental. Pisces full Moons are an auspicious period to end co-dependence and learn to stop caring what other people think. Use this period to toughen your outer shell and build your own sense of confidence.

ARIES: Aries full Moons take place when the Sun is in Libra (End of September to end of October)
This is a good time to let go of all that anger you've been storing up. This can be done by taking over the controls of your life and unleashing the full force of your personality. Oh -- and be sure to exercise!

TAURUS: Taurus full Moons take place when the Sun is in Scorpio (End of October to end of November)
The Taurus full Moon reminds us that it's time to let go of stability that has morphed into stagnation. If your life has gotten into a routine, break out of your rut by taking risks or doing something spontaneous and edgy.


: Gemini full Moons take place when the Sun is in Sagittarius (End of November to end of December)

Stop being so snarky. When the Moon is full in Gemini, stop talking and start doing. If you have been using sardonic humor against others as a way to mask your own discontent, start focusing on being a better person and less on blaming everyone else.

CANCER: Cancer full Moons take place when the Sun is in Capricorn (End of December to end of January)
Break free from dysfunction. At a certain point, only you can decide who or what hurts you. It’s time to stand up to controlling or smothering family members, and walk your own individual path.

LEO: Leo full Moons take place when the Sun is in Aquarius (End of January to end of February)
When the full Moon is in Leo, you need to tone down your own ego and make an attempt at being a part of a group. You're not the only one on the stage, and if you only care about your own lines, you'll never engage in true dialogue or interaction with others.

VIRGO: Virgo full Moons take place when the Sun is in Pisces (End of February to end of March)
Relax! Stop trying to control everyone and everything around you. Allow a little chaos and spontaneity into your life, and fun and humor are sure to follow.

LIBRA: Libra full Moons take place when the Sun is in Aries (End of March to end of April)
Come down off your pedestal. The Libra full Moon challenges us to take off our rose-colored glasses and see the gritty realities of the world. Be willing to get into the mud in order to solve the major issues facing you instead of living in a fantasy world.

SCORPIO: Scorpio full Moons take place when the Sun is in Taurus (End of April to end of May)
Stop obsessing and chill out. Scorpio full Moons are intense -- filled with jealousy, envy, possessiveness and compulsion. Learn to let other people live their own lives, away from your microscope, and you'll be able to forge healthier relationships.

SAGITTARIUS: Sagittarius full Moons take place when the Sun is in Gemini (End of May to end of June)
It’s time to settle down. If you've been flakey or overly into your own sense of freedom, it's time to be more responsible and helpful to everyone around you.
