Happy Capricorn Full Moon and partial Lunar eclipse!
Yes, it’s not just Mercury giving us problems, we are also working with the energy of 2 eclipses this month. There is much more going on, but let’s cover this Lunar energy first.
Our heavens are very active at this time, and I am just going to say this now…July is very much an “in your face” time energy.
We are preparing for our full moon that will be on the 16th of July. And this will add some more intense energy..highly emotional as well.
On July 16, 2019, we will have a full moon in Capricorn at 5:38 pm, 2:38 pm pt, and 10:38 pm for those of you in London, England time zone.
Now a full moon is when the moon is directly opposite the sun, so the sun is able to really light the moon up…but this time there will be a bit different. The full moon will also be a partial lunar eclipse. So what does that mean? A Lunar eclipse is when the moon passes directly behind Earth and into its shadow. This occurs when the sun, earth, and moon are inexact or very close alignment.
This lunar eclipse will be partial, so it will not blacken the moon completely…but the energy is still going to be intense. The full moon is when shadows come to light. With the Sun in Cancer and the moon in Capricorn, we will have a chance to bring some emotional harmony back into all of our relationships.
The partial lunar eclipse will give us an opportunity to reset our emotions/feelings. Which is very much needed at this time. We can have bottled up feelings, and we need to express them healthfully. Emotions will be high, so respond don’t react. This moon, it will be essential for us to be very conscious of our own energy, and to master our own energy.
Our thoughts are very important at this time. Remember, energy goes wherever you are focusing.
Many seem to not completely understand how it works. Energy is energy, just like astrology, it is neither bad or good…it is what it is until we apply our perception to it. We have to remember that wherever we put our energy, it will be magnified; whatever you are focused on, it will grab the attention of energy and we’ll get more of it. Energy follows attention! We have to become masters of our own energy in order to create what we want to create. We really need to be aware of where we are placing our energy, which will require discipline for us.
The Solar eclipse took place with our North Node, and it was solar, so we were jolted forward into our future destiny and offered a great opportunity. But this eclipse will be lunar and will take place in our South Node (remember the South Node represents our past, the energy we are coming from), the message of allowing the old to break away. This moon is a super full moon…and it can shine the light on things that you didn’t see or know. This is a perfect time to let go of things (the old things), especially when Mercury Rx is added. This is really a good time to cut yourself free from things that have control over you and no longer serves you, and It is a culmination, so it allows one to see how you use your own power. Capricorn is about ‘law order’ Look into ourselves and see what is needing to be released, old habits, thoughts, and ideas those that have been ingrained in you. For this reading, Moon conj pluto there is a great deal of intensity with our emotions and feelings. Watch out for your temper…patience will be needed.
This energy is really requiring us to stay conscious, allow yourself to digest things, and it can be great time of completion and releasing.
This past week we’ve had some solar storms that ended on Thursday. When the energy from this storm hits Earth it can have us feeling symptoms of Stress, anxiety, sleepiness, sleeplessness, body aches, foggy headedness, extra sensitivity, nightmares, vivid dreams, and your Intuition could be heightened. Its important to make sure you are practicing self care and keeping yourself hydrated, eating healthy foods, and getting enough rest. When you are able, put yourself in a soothing environment and soothing sounds.
To better understand this full moon, let’s look back at the New Moon in Gemini at the beginning of June that gave us a fresh new-start, positive energy. A new moon represents a new moon cycle, and as we have progressed into this month there will be more of an energetic building. This moon will have some pretty important aspects that will really set the energy for the full moon on the 17th, then leading to the Summer Solstice on the 21st, which is also the day when the sun moves into the astrological sign of Cancer.
On June 16th Jupiter will form a square with Neptune and then on the 18th Saturn will form a sextile (that’s harmonizing energy) with Jupiter.
And in between these aspects will be our full moon in the freedom loving sign of Sagittarius. This full moon is going to be important as it represents the last moon phase of the current eclipse cycle that began with the January 5th solar eclipse.
And this moon with lead us into July where we will have 2 eclipses. Now for this full moon it will be on June 17th in the astrological sign of Sagittarius at 1:31 am pt, 431am et, and 931am UK time. Sagittarius is known as our freedom loving sign. It’s symbol is that of the archer or bow and arrow, it is the mythical centaur (a half human and half horse, who is one of higher intelligence, and can represent a bridge between Earth and heaven. Sagittarius is very optimistic, and being its planet is Jupiter, this is a very lucky sign (as jupiter is the planet of fortune). This is adventurous energy, it is open-minded, and very serene. But due to the freedom this signs craves, this energy doesn’t vibe well in commitments, and can be careless. There is an energy of restlessness here as well, wanting to move forward to the next adventure.
Now I normally love the energy of Sagittarians, I have a daughter that is a sagittarius, as they have a certain charm about them. It is a fire sign, so that need for experience is heightened, as well as being in that energy of falling in love.
This is the energy adaptability, and one of being able to envision great futures. Now this moon will have us wanting to reach high beyond the limits and above all, to enjoy one’s self. This is a renewal of high energy, and this is great as we move to Midsummer, the Summer Solstice on the 21st.
Remember full moon are when the Moon (Mother energy) is opposite the Sun (father energy) so there will be a light shined on those things that are in the dark. This could be something that you didn’t want to see but need to see. This moon will definitely light us up energetically and have us pushing forward for that next adventure. But we have to be careful, as Sagittarian energy can push its luck.
The arrow symbology in this sign is very important as it is hinting at you to aim your focus when the centaur takes his bow and pulls back his arrow he is taking aim. Sure be open to possibilities, but you need to focus your energy for the absolute best results.
For relationships, this energy will have you wanting true authentic relationships, no games nor lies, just straight realness. This energy will give us a thirst for learning to further our knowledge. This is a good moon for philosophical vision, writers and artists.
Now these 2 aspects that we will be happening. When Jupiter forms his square with Neptune, this will take us back to the energy expression of last January. This can make us have higher expectations of others and especially ourselves. Jupiter is all about expansions and Neptune has that fantastical energy. This is very optimistic energy as well, so you can be disillusioned at this time. This is energy that will have you wanting to avoid confrontation, you can be very restless and feel dissatisfied and can exaggerate things that emotionally charged you. This could also lead to arguments can be taken out of context and things could blow up. This energy can also be meandering type energy, but when Saturn sextiles Jupiter Father Time will open our eyes. We will be reminded of the boundaries that we have….our responsibilities to self and others. This double dose of Jupiter energy can lead us to unrealistic ventures and unrealistic dreams but on the flip side, this can really be a time of great inspiration. Saturn will help us understand that things must unfold on their own. This sextile between saturn and neptune can be an energy of learning family traditions and customs. You could be bringing back your families traditions, bringing back beliefs of your family…your ancestors. This is philosophies as well. This can be a time where you find yourself devoted to your calling, wanting to have your dreams manifest. This could be a time that you could discover your soul’s calling or finding your sense of purpose.
Saturn and Pluto are still in Capricorn and with Uranus in Taurus so we will not have too much shake up energy, and this will give us enough grounding energy to help keep us grounded. 8 hours after the full moon in sagittarius, the moon will be moving into Capricorn which is nice energy to ground our desires, but when a sign is in its latter degrees it is a bit raw and will soon be experiencing a transition as it will be moving into a different sign.
All in all, this is a full moon does have the energy to make your long term dreams come true.
This moon will be one of this years most powerful moons. As this is the last full moon before the up coming Solar Eclipse on July 2nd, that will also be a new moon. These energies will be deeply felt as this moon will align to our Galactic Center and will help us have a renewed sense of hope and faith that things will work out. We can be inspired by the energetic vibrations of infinite possibilities. It is time to leave behind all that doesn’t resonate with you anymore. You want to see the truth in matters and for some you will be able to discover your Soul’s purpose.
It’s time to leave the past in the past, as it is time to focus on the present and future.
Hope and trust is highlighted in this moon. We will be aided in determination as Mercury meets up with Mars and has a wonderful conversation reminding us, and assisting us in directing all of our inner power in creating and building something productive.
Remember in order to create something new, the old must break away. The old fades so the new can grow. This is our Wheel of the Year, remember change of our only constant.
For this moon choose wisely where you desire to put your intention and energy. Carl Jung stated “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.
