This Lunar Eclipse can trigger changes and strong emotions. On July 2nd we started something new in our emotional life, living situation, family or roots. The Full Moon in Capricorn now reminds us of what is still standing in the way of what we really want, or what we need to change.
Lunar Eclipses are basically particularly strong Full Moons. They emphasize relationships and opposites in our lives that need to be balanced. When other planets are near the Sun or Moon, it affects the messages that the Lunar Eclipse brings.
Close to Pluto, and also Saturn, this Full Moon is exposed to very strong forces. The Moon is a rather delicate heavenly body because it is connected with our childhood, with emotions and needs. Pluto and Saturn, on the other hand, are hard and in some ways merciless. They stand for change, extreme processes, life structures, demands and responsibility.
The next few months will be about making changes and restructurings that will give you more happiness, a more beautiful living environment, or more time with friends, family, and for your own needs. Changes will happen either because you actively take responsibility for them, or because external circumstances will force those changes on you.
Of course, it is better to act freely! However, the time around the Lunar Eclipse can bring the feeling of overload. The Moon in Capricorn, on Saturn, South Node and Pluto, symbolizes possible emotional shocks, or profound events that need to be processed first. Sudden limitations, financial difficulties, or trouble with authority figures are also possible.
So please don't be too self-critical. Critical perhaps, but only in a practical-constructive sense. As soon as strong feelings of guilt, despair, or addiction creep in, you know you are on the wrong track. Because these feelings don't bring constructive changes, and those are exactly what are needed; no matter how muddled or difficult a situation may feel!
On the 16th, Venus is also exactly opposite Saturn; another strong confrontation. Venus/Saturn aspects are often associated with a heavy heart, responsibility instead of love, separations, or a lack of feeling and/or resources. If you are feeling depressed or money you were expecting isn't arriving, you should know that this condition won't last forever! However, difficulties may indicate important structural problems. So don't look away either...
The Lunar Eclipse on Pluto is a temporary high point of the time for approx. one year. The penultimate stage, until in January 2020 an EXTREME eclipse in cancer completes the restructuring of our private and working lives. In fact, the period between now and mid-2020 could be described as one of the most difficult, but potentially most promising, times of our lives.
As I said: Don't blame yourself if you feel physically, emotionally, practically overwhelmed mid- month. However, take further steps to do yourself good, and/or to organize your life better. One part of what is necessary is very practical, the other goes very deep into our soul. We have to balance worlds, because the world as we have formed it in the last couple of 1000 years does not make people happy.
Happy Full Moon Eclipse!
