Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse July 2019

Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse
For All Signs Of The Zodiac 


The Moon is Full in the sign of Capricorn on July 16, 2019, and it’s a partial Lunar Eclipse. It comes together around 4:39 PM CST, 5:39 PM EDT.  The Eclipse occurs when the Moon in Capricorn opposes the Sun in Cancer.


This is an especially potent Full Moon, being its a Partial Lunar Eclipse, so our focus turns towards our relationships under this lunation. But also our work and family lives. 


Eclipses create the energy of crisis in our lives, and often they bring up what we are lacking. This is a time when we can suddenly realize there’s something missing, perhaps a need or want we can’t seem to fulfill. This Eclipse can actually split some relationships up, but it also brings folks together. Suddenly, we may realize that there’s a need to have other folks around helping support us. This is also about making sure the foundation of our soul tribe of friends and family is strong. But Lunar Eclipses are not always about relationships, they can also bring up certain needs in other areas of our life, such as our relationship to our work, or to our health and bodies, it really can be about anything. The Full Moon lights up our deeper feelings that have been just sitting below the surface to be dealt with. 


Under the Full Moon, we can be very emotional and express ourselves without warning. This is a time when some folks will claim out loud what they are really about and what they want in life. We are reacting from a strong but illogical emotional place. Lunar Eclipses are stronger and more potent than a normal Full Moon, so its effects can last up to about six months after it occurs. 


Lunar Eclipses are about relationships and are oppositions, this time around the Sun in Cancer and the Moon in Capricorn are bumping against one another. So we must take a closer look at our needs, lacks and wants in our lives and create a balance around what we should be working on. This Full Moon is about our personal private lives, our need for a secure home base, and how we nurture ourselves. The other side of this energy is our public life, careers, reputations, and how we take responsibility. Being attached and love is ruled by Cancer, while our success and rewards and punishments are ruled by Capricorn energy, this polarity deals with balancing unconditional and conditional love. The Cancer energy involved encourages us to value our home life and that foundation, as well as our roots, while the Capricorn energy wants us to consider our sense of duty and responsibility along with our professional lives. Cancer energy is about being content with being dependent, Capricorn wants us to grow the hell up and take responsibility! Cancer energy also represents the beginning and where we come from, and Capricorn is about the goals we set. Ideally, setting some sort of balance between these two energies is what the Full Moon is asking us to do.


This Full Moon is helping us learn how to strike a balance between our commitments to our work and families both. As we’ve been holding onto something emotionally that’s very important, as the Cosmos is reminding us via the Full Moon that it’s still there to let out and express how we are feeling, so these issues to be released. Hopefully, over time we’ll have all the information we need to better understand what all of this means.  


The Full Moon energy brings up an inner conflict to be dealt with, and it can prove difficult to sit with such strong feelings, so we need to find ways to express them. This causes that crisis situation, as some kind of sudden awareness around what we are lacking in our life usually comes up! This is an opportunity to figure out what we need. So during this highly emotionally charged time, our relationships can be challenging, and either broken or dramatically made even stronger. We also may experience some kind of major Ah-Ha moments or epiphanies. This leads us to learning more about what we don’t have and taking some actions to obtain it. 


Full Moons and especially Lunar Eclipses bring up issues in our lives to finish something. Our emotions are stronger than usual and there’s often some sort of drama involved around whatever part of our own personal Astrology Birth Chart the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse is cruising through. That’s the area of our life that the Cosmos is pushing us to make much-needed changes in. There can be some serious drama in whatever part of our life this Eclipse is going through. So a path is often revealed to us, so we can move towards it and make things better, if we understand it or not, it is trying to align us with our true Soul Journey, as our life destiny is at play. Usually, these issues are something we’ve been sitting on or ignoring, so our emotions have been building, and this Eclipse helps us realize they are still there, we just haven’t chosen to work through them yet. The Full Moon’s light and energy draw them out into the open, so if we get in touch with our emotions we can get a much more clear idea about what actually needs to be done or changed and let go of.


The Lunar Eclipse occurring in the sign of Capricorn sets off our inner awareness about the flaws in the structures we’ve built in our lives, especially in our careers and involving our home and family life. So there are serious decisions that need to be made to fix things. This Lunar Eclipse is a powerful one with confrontational energy, because it’s making a conjunction to psychological and powerful Pluto, and is opposite Mercury (now in Retrograde). This brings out intense emotional reactions compulsive behavior, and of course, power struggles around crisis situations, so this can be quite a complicated time, as there’s a stronger need to do something, it can cause us to feel a sense of urgency. Take some time for yourself and try to relax while we get through this strong energy.

Venus Enters Gemini

On June 8, Venus the Goddess of Love, that rules over our relationships and often financial affairs enters the sign of Gemini, through July 3rd.

We definitely can be more talkative and naturally curious, under this influence. Our minds are whirling with juicy information along with a stronger than normal desire to share, however, we can get lost in conversation. We can be extremely indecisive but also aware, because we can read between the lines in any form of communication. This is a time when we like to multi-task as we’re motivated by our own curiosity. Which with Venus involved, the Goddess of Love, that means some people are also going to be more curious than usual about being free and not in a relationship, as the air sign Gemini influence can make us desire more alone time, and we can feel quite detached and therefore, this is not a time to take love or a relationship too seriously. Keep it light and fluffy folks!

On the other hand under this influence we are more flirty, so it’s no wonder this is a time of romance as we tend to date and hook up more. There’s a need for variety and diversity however, because our minds are so charged up that our hearts tend to follow. This energy keeps us engaged and interested in human contact and relationships. Since Venus is involved, this energy affects our love lives and relationships, and with it being in the sign of Gemini, we can be more fickle and picky.

Feeling more attracted to words, we can bond very easily with others on mental levels, but we are also more sensitive to stimulus, touch, and other vibrations that are being sent out on the airwaves. So we can feel quite good with positive energies, but very bad if we get around anything negative. The energy of Gemini is very empathic and therefore we tend to feel everyone’s else’s emotions from time to time, so you may want to be more careful about taking on our lovers emotional baggage and protect ourselves energetically. Shields up folks!

It is a good time to connect intellectually with others relationships, but especially with our partners, as we feel each other’s energies in a unique way. But we can be more fun, whimsical, light and breezy, but also quite animated and often funny in our relationships. So we don’t enjoy getting to deep emotionally right now, and would much rather keep our relationships more above the surface for now.

This is a strong time for sexual activities, and tantalizing communication, as a little erotica whispered in the ears of our lovers or partners can send them over the edge! But we should be picky and not just get it on with anyone who is willing. Don’t take a little extra attention or an open invitation as a clear sign you should be doing anything with just anymore.

Venus also rules over money, and since there are two sides to the sign of the twins, Gemini’s duality comes into play. As our attitude towards our finances is more easy come, easy go. We are cheapskates in one moment and spendthrifts in the next, all depending on how much mola we have in the moment. With Venus in intellectual Gemini, we tend to spend our money on experiences that will stimulate our mind, like movies, books, apps online, and writing materials. So even when money is low, we manage to come up with just enough to watch something fascinating, or purchase a good book, or just have coffee with a friend.

Enjoy!

Astro Monthly Forecast for June 2019


June has arrived as we have been already cruising through Gemini Season (when the Sun is in Gemini), that runs through the end of this month, so this looks to be like a very interesting time! It’s consistent but also an important time of the year. Since July 2019 will have both our next Eclipse Season and the next Mercury Retrograde cycle. June might just be the zen month we need to prepare for all the energy coming. As there are no major Cosmic Connections this month, but we do have two of 2019’s major transits, so certain energies are playing out in June that connects us back to where we were last January in some way, and where we will probably end up by the years end. 


The New Moon occurs on June 3rd in the sign of Gemini, this brings fresh new energy into our lives. If we stay aware of the positive energies this influence brings, we can learn from others by simply being curious, as we can work on improving our social and communication skills. So we can learn how to think and express ourselves with our words. As the planet, Mercury will also be in its own sign of Gemini during this time, which makes this a good time for mental focus so you can Set Intentions or make out Wish Lists with the New Moon energy. 

Keep your mind open so you can receive all the information flying around during this time. It’s also a good period to learn about all sorts of things, and how to enjoy different kinds of people and personalities. This lunation can help us get our Astro house of communication in order, so we should be planning and creating our future goals. Time to get writing pen to paper during this New Moon! Make a wish list or a bullet list about what energy you want to call into your life! What do you want to see happen next? This New Moon is pretty chill compared to what we’ve been dealing with over the last several months, so enjoy it folks!


On June 4 Mercury enters the sign of the crab, Cancer. Many of you will have to make some decisions around your family or other close relations, home, and if dealing with real estate. This won’t slow us down much, but the Trickster planet of the Zodiac does hit its pre-shadow of Retrograde cycle, (yes that is Mercury in Retrograde on June 20.) During this upcoming Mercury in Retrograde cycle, it will go between the Signs of Cancer and Leo, but remember that’s just the sign the planet Mercury is in and that energy affects every single sign of the Zodiac. This Influence can cause some of you to feel extremely negative or overly critical, cynical, or judgemental in your thinking. It will be important during this time to make sure and not react without really thinking things through first.


On the 6th of June, Jupiter forms a somewhat challenging aspect to Uranus, which again can cause restlessness if our dreams are not happening! And especially if what we thought could happen in our future is no longer fulfilling or is no longer inspirational. You might go on some hunt for something impractical or go on some unusual tangent that doesn’t last for long. 


Starting June 8 Venus enters the sign of Gemini, through July 3. So we are more talkative and curious by nature, as our minds are always whirling with juicy information along with a stronger than normal desire to share. Our hands are usually in many pots during this time, as our curiosity motivates us both romantically and socially. We are looking for variety and diversity, as we are much more social, communicative, and interested. Connecting mentally with others, especially our partners brings great surges within ourselves. We are more fun and animated but we like to keep our distance when it comes to our deeper emotions. When it comes to the “love” department, we tend to be attracted to words more so and can bond very easily with someone on a mental level. We are more sensitive to touch and other vibrations that are being sent out, so we can react well to any kind of positive feedback. A little erotica murmured in our ears could be the very thing that sends us over the edge during this time. Be discriminating, however, and don’t get it on with just anyone who provides an open invitation. This influence brings tantalizing communications. But we can be super picky and fickle, as well in our relationships and with our finances. 


On June 16th, Jupiter forms a square to Neptune, this second meeting in a set of three is the last one, the last one occurred back in January and September before that. This influence has caused challenges with our rather high expectations around faith, hope, beliefs, and our dreams. As this builds around the 13th or so we can start to feel it’s presence more strongly in our personal lives. It’s easy to fall for some sort of illusion maybe through others or by our own unrealistic ideas. There have been and will be consequences around disorganization, neglect, extravagance, and exaggeration. You can feel quite restless and this can be stronger than usual, and our routines just may not make us as happy during this time. So it’s easy to get off track and take some sort of new path, but it will be practical. This can cause us to wander and feel sort of lost because we are not grounded. Also, don’t be fooled as this is a time when we can be taken by something or someone, make sure and watch very carefully that you do not ignore or avoid things, and you might just change your beliefs or philosophies in some way to justify how you’ve been avoiding these issues. There can be issues around setting boundaries for ourselves, so keep your head out of the clouds. It might be important to be more strict with discipline, and what your normal schedule is to make sure you don’t get carried away. Spiritual inspiration can be strong as we get to let go of false beliefs, expectations, and old worn out attitudes.


The Full Moon occurs on June 17th in the sign of Sagittarius, this serves as a reminder to explore beyond your normal boundaries, and change up our usual everyday routines, and our way of thinking. This illumination is a time of expansion in all ways, so we should focus on what energy or adventure in life we want to explore and grow in next. Also, it’s all too easy to blow things out of proportion during this time, so we need to let go of what is no longer working for us or is serving our lives anymore. It’s a time to celebrate the blessings in your life, the things you have already made happen, your successes. Let this powerful opposition between the Sun and the Moon (FULL MOON) take your troubles from the past away forever! The Full Moon can be one of the most difficult times for us emotionally, feeling and expressing gratitude to the Universe can help us move forward on our soul’s journey. During this Full Moon, we should concentrate on our future plans and goals, there is a more optimistic vibe in the air with a sense of moving forward in a new direction, hopefully on that helps heal the planet and focus more so on the Divine Feminine. This energy is all about moving ahead as it is strongly enthusiastic in nature, and even its energy helps us take these actions. But we must remember at the same time, Full Moons are all about releasing what is no longer working for us or serving us. So there might be a lot of endings or chapters closing during this time as well. 


On June 18th Saturn makes a beautiful connection to dreamy Neptune, this is a major transit influencing us for most of 2019. This is the second in a set of three meetings between these two planets, the last one occurred in January of 19 and the next one will come together in November of 19. This brings together the discipline of Saturn and dreams of Neptune, so it helps bring structure and meaning to our ideals and plans for our future dreams and goals. Neptune has room to grow and we are better able to show our acceptance and devotion which can help us bring new meaning to our work especially, but also traditions and customs. We feel more strongly and enjoy the sense of purpose in our lives under this influence. This can harmonize our spirituality with our material goals here in this physical existence or realm. The best part of this influence is how our circumstances because of our attitude can help us follow through with our dreams, as we can turn our visions and ideals seriously into reality! Work on syncing your imagination and physical actions now, so visualize what you want in your mind and feel it, and then take steps to actually make it happen, as this is serious manifesting energy folks, your efforts will be rewarded. Because there is a stronger belief and sense that our dreams are realizable in some way now, we can build a much stronger faith and acceptance.


June 20th is important because even though Mercury doesn’t officially go Retrograde until next month on July 7th, it starts it’s Pre Shadow periodMercury is Retrograde this time around from July 7th through August 1st, but it starts its journey on the 20th of June. Mercury must cover territory that it knows already first, so we will be doing some backtracking during its Shadow Period this month. This shadow time will have us go over everything that has to do with our thoughts, conversations, negotiations, and ideas. There can be a sense of turnaround, revisiting things, and delays. So pay attention to everything that comes up from the 20th till July 7th. Think about how life is speaking to you, ask how do you receive your signs or messages from the Universe, or whatever you want to call it! It speaks to us through synchronicities and messages that are usually quite subtle, that you tend to write off as just a coincidence. But the more aware you are this month, and the more you pay attention to those signs and messages the easier July will be for you!


Happy Summer Solstice.
Happy Birthday to all the Cancers of the Zodiac!

On June 21st the Sun will shift into more withdrawn Cancer, which also marks the Summer Solstice.

The Sun shifts into more private, emotional Cancer until July 22nd, and our attention is turned towards our family unit, home life, and anything that makes us feel at home, safe, and secure. This symbolizes our need to plant roots and to figure out just where we belong in this world, but the Cosmos may not be as cooperative as we would like, and we can feel moody and pensive during this time.

The Sun’s entrance into Moon-ruled Cancer not only marks the Summer Solstice, but has us more focused on our personal lives, and this includes building you and your family’s safety and security, while nurturing your loved ones and creating a comfortable life at home. It just makes sense that the symbol for the security-minded sign of Cancer is the Crab, this is a creature that takes its home wherever it goes! It’s important to take care of your social obligations, especially your professional life while the Sun is in Cancer, all your activities outside of your home will be more successful when you have a strong family and home base to fall back on, and a more solid schedule. Over the next month make sure to set time aside to relax and recharge your batteries and don’t forget how important it is to spend quality time with those you love.


On the 21st, Neptune turns Retrograde. This fog will roll in as it casts a veil over our normal practical lives. This influence causes us to temporarily lose our inspiration because we are re-working our dreams and wishes with what’s happening emotionally within ourselves. This Retrograde cycle itself lasts until Nov 27th, which means this will be a period of confusion and indecisiveness. You may feel stuck or like you are in limbo, but it is a great time to work on discovering your inner-self more. 


On June 26, Mercury shifts into the sign of Leo. When Mercury is in the house of Leo, people’s high aspirations and ideas will be put through tests and challenges. But we must remember during this time Mercury will already be in its Pre-Shadow period of Retrograde. Therefore, there can be confusion of all sorts over the same. People can lose their temper more often once Mercury is Retrograde, especially in the sign of Leo with its pre-shadow period beginning June 20th. Those in power and authority are likely to make major mistakes and blunders resulting in utter chaos in the country, which is really the last thing we need right now here in the US, but this applies to all countries. Issues involving love and relationships are likely to heat up during this time, so relationships can be difficult as communication is fuzzy and confusing. Don’t allow children to overindulge or even adults you care for, as they can take eating too much or playing too much to a whole new level. Starting anything new or that you don’t fully trust should be put off during this time and waited out until Mercury is totally out of Retrograde later in August. Leo is ruled by the heart as well, so we should pay extra close attention to what we are eating or any bad habits we might have during this time.


Have a good month folks, and if you need any guidance during this time, please contact me to schedule a session at healingruby@gmail.com or via messages here or on my FB page. Many blessings,
~Ruby
