Full Moon In Capricorn, Partial Lunar Eclipse 7/16/19

July 16, 2019

The Moon’s fullness of light, shines when it reaches it’s position in its cyclic orbit where we are actually seeing the Moon itself lit up by the Sun, just shining its light as a spotlight would upon it.

In Astrological and metaphorical thought it is the feminine intuitive nature of the Moon when in opposition to the masculine result oriented Sun fosters a power which manifests as a kind of madness. This tension and potency of the Full Moon is experienced and acknowledged as a time of high emotions reflected in the high tides that accompany it.
  • Management of our emotions brings about opportunities for new understanding of ourselves. Awareness unfolds during the Full Moon. However this Full Moon is marked by a partial Lunar Eclipse, which means that a portion of the Moon passes through the Earth’s shadow. This is all occurring with five Planets in Retrograde.
  • They are;

  • Mercury Rx In Leo having to do with communication and gadgetry

    Jupiter Rx in Sagittarius known to be in the realm of expansive joviality, hope, and justice of the law

  • Saturn Rx In Capricorn concerned with obligations, boundaries, discipline and elevation of one’s position in Community and Society at large.
  • Neptune Rx in Pisces the realm of Cosmic Consciousness, the Mystic and the dissolving of boundaries, spiritual and material
  • Pluto Rx In Capricorn can be experienced as the “wrecking crew” leading to transformation:and the power of birth through death
  • This indicates that there may be some delays or perhaps the paradoxical quickening of life events as things are slowed down a bit so as to bring about an opening to opportunities that might have been missed.
  • The Retrograde can be experienced as a slowing down of a prior flow of a once steady rapid rate. This can be experienced as frustrating or if you have well cultivated patience it can bring about sheer amazement as the slowing down of energy brings what is needed in order to allow situations to come to fruition.
  • This Retrograde moment can serve to allow for the arranging of a brilliant rearrangement of situations.
  • Retrograde movements actually support growth and change. Retrogrades may quicken some kind of inner revisionist of circumstances which then become clarified.
  • Be patient and persevere.
  • Breathe and be mindful of being here now.
  • Meditation practices are a good idea during these cycles serving to support calm. Nurturing human beings to be present just as they are. It’s is a good way to ride the wave of this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse energy as it moves through the constellation of Capricorn.
  • Our past accomplishments, inner resources along with patterns we no longer need are illumined during this cycle by the very nature of the Sun In Cancer and Moon in Capricorn. It colors our experience metaphorically of the safe warmth of mothering and home which must lead to moving out into the world with integrity, focus, grace and strength, the realm of father.
  • Unconditional mother love diametrically opposing the conditional love of father
  • The Past development within home vs. Being out in the world accomplishing future high ambitions
  • This Capricorn Full Moon moment allows us to become aware of judgments, thoughts and feelings, for us to meet them face to face or not. As the Retrograde, particularly Neptune and Mercury’s influences in Rx unfolds. The suggestion here is to try to be consciously aware of your experience, with kindness and care of yourself.
  • Definitely a good moment to reflect and look with compassion, seeking to clarity your present circumstances based on what was going on six months ago during that Full Moon Cancer Eclipse cycle, and just two weeks prior on July 2nd during the Lunar Eclipse In Cancer.
  • The Full Moon, happens when it is in opposition to the Sun. The opposition forms stress, as if it were a rubber band being pulled apart. As Marion Woodman states, ” we must learn to hold the tension of the opposites”. This is a particular powerful moment of ripening. Allow yourself to become aware of opposing forces in your own life or deep within you.
  • I also recommend a bit of self love talk.
  • Words of caring, kindness, creativity and love felt from your inner most being.
  • This could be the beginning of a whole new perspective and understanding for you as your wants, needs and desires can become conscious, which is the first step in manifesting your goals.
  • What ever intentions had been set into consciousness at the time of the New Moon Solar Eclipse two weeks ago is the forefront moment of this Full Moon. We must be patient as Mother love and Father reason are being met within the orbits of many challenges and boulders to overcome as Mercury Rx and the aforementioned five other planets which are in Rx colors our passage at this time.

    Keep on keeping on with clear intentions and conscious awareness so as to harness the power of this Lunar Eclipse moment to then let yourself move forward in harmony through this amazing journey as it continues to unfold.

    Peace.
