I hope you’re safe and well. This full moon marks the third eclipse in the summer series. Eclipses bring change and you might be thinking there’s already been plenty of change happening in the world. But the lunar eclipse is about looking at your own life and seeing what needs to shift. The things you are already doing; caring for loved ones, taking care of your health, standing up for those people who are marginalized, fighting injustice, are wonderful. And now, this eclipse lets you turn your inner eye to see your own path. The adjustments that you make over the next few weeks can help you for the rest of your life.
This lunar eclipse is at 13° of Capricorn with the sun at 13° of Cancer. Cancer is about home, family and foundations. Capricorn is your reputation out in the world, your career, as well as how you are seen by others. So, what’s important now is taking care of loved ones and helping the world become a better place.
Mercury is still retrograde until July 12. During Mercury retrograde periods you want to do things that you’re okay with repeating. Avoid doing things like car repairs or buying a new phone. Instead, focus on doing things you would like to repeat such as healthful eating, exercise or even vacationing. Then with each new retrograde, you’ll be drawn to do that behavior again. So even if the healthy eating falls by the wayside come the next retrograde, in October, you’ll be drawn to eat healthfully again.
Jupiter and Pluto have their second conjunction. The third conjunction will be in November. This energy is about expanding transformation. It’s about taking your talents and your intellectual abilities and applying them to a worthy cause. From the mundane standpoint, a Jupiter/Pluto conjunction can bring uprisings as we have already seen. But you personally can use this energy to pursue your goals.
The Stoic philosophers advocated for hardship to make people stronger. You are growing during these difficult times. You’re finding you’re more resilient and more powerful than you ever knew. With every adversity, the Universe provides a gift. Going forward the gifts will be revealed.
