Hellooo beautiful spirit!

We are swimming in the beautiful Capricorn lunar eclipse energies this week.

This magical event happened yesterday, July 16th in 24 degrees of Capricorn. The eclipse became exact at 2:38PM Pacific (5:38PM Eastern).

Lunar eclipses are basically full moons on steroids…..VERY powerful and impactful events. You can expect major transformational shifts over the next several weeks to months. This begins a shift in consciousness that will unfold over the next 6 months and help us to connect more fully into our own Divine journey.

This particular eclipse activates the Capricorn-Cancer polarity. With lunar eclipses, we are always asked to consider the energies of the sign that the Sun is in also, as the Sun & Moon are in opposite signs during this event. Therefore we are creating a balance between these two very different astrological energies. The Capricorn themes involve your Divine goals and planning, responsibility, structure, boundaries, reality, and achievements. The Sun in Cancer also asks you to pay attention to the areas of home and family, nurturing, self care and your emotions. Cancer is also a very nostalgic and sentimental sign, so you may find yourself feeling emotional about “the good old days” or past connections that you have good memories of.

Pluto aligns with the moon during this eclipse. Pluto asks us to dig down deep and put anything to rest that no longer resonates with us, so that it can assist us in transforming and birthing new things that align much more with who we truly are.

Lunar eclipses are a time of completion, of culmination, of endings. What are you aware of that is no longer resonating with you in your life? It is time to release it with love so that you are able to move forward into new levels on your soul’s sacred path. Know that this is for your highest good and that we are always going to be transforming and releasing old energies throughout our lifetimes.

How can you release? Simply write down what you wish to release (get all of those emotions out and on paper) and then burn the paper. By doing this, you are releasing that energy out into the Universe to be transmuted. You can also release physically by exercising, crying, pounding pillows-whatever feels right for you!

Emotions are magnified greatly now, and eclipses tend to bring about unexpected events. Be cautious about jumping headfirst into action now-take some time to think, meditate and go within before doing so. During a lunar eclipse and for some time afterwards, we are not able to see the full picture. More will be revealed after eclipse season ends and you will receive new information that was not available during the eclipse. Try to wait until after the new moon in Leo on July 31st to move forward with something big and new-so that you are able see the entire picture before doing so. This is a time to really ensure that you are nourishing your Divine self as well as others. Create some time to honor yourself this week in whatever way feels best to you.

Eclipses run in 19 year cycles. The last time we had a lunar eclipse in 24 degrees of Capricorn was in July of 2000. To get an idea of what area of your life will be affected by this eclipse, think back to what was going on in your life around that time. You will find similar themes being activated for you now as well. It won’t necessarily show up exactly the same way as it did back then, but it will most likely resonate with similar issues that were taking place at that time.

We currently have 6 planets in retrograde (Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto & Chiron)-so the retrograde themes are very strongly emphasized! The retrograde time asks us to slow down, breathe and take care of body, mind and spirit. Take this time to redo, revise, reorganize, reconnect, reflect and refine wherever needed.
Questions to reflect or journal upon:

  • How is my soul calling out for me to commit to myself right now?
  • How can I best honor my self care needs during the eclipse cycle?
  • What goals can I set right now to take inspired action on for the new moon in Leo?

Lots of energy is moving during this time! Take care of yourself, go within and really honor your needs during these eclipse energies.
