2019 Capricorn Full Moon and Partial Lunar Eclipse

Usually the Full Moon is the blossoming time for whatever seeds we planted at the previous New Moon. It is also the time to release whatever stands in our way on our journey of healing into wholeness. Because we are in Eclipse season the previous New Moon which occurred on July 02/03 at 10 degrees Cancer was a Total Solar Eclipse. It influences us until Jan 2020. The theme is “news or information that transforms a situation. It can be positive if one stays grounded.” (Bernadette Brady in Predictive Astrology) Cancer is the sign associated with our roots, origins, family, deeply felt emotions and a sense of belonging. On a spiritual level Cancer is the sign of our Spiritual Destiny path. Once we step onto that Path there is no turning back.
This Capricorn Full Moon is a partial Lunar Eclipse. It is visible in Europe, Africa, parts of Asia and parts of Australia. (For a map of visibility go to www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/lunar/2019-july-16). Even though it is not visible in North America it still has a powerful influence. We are ending the theme that began with the Capricorn Solar Eclipse of 05 Jan 2019. The message was to become involved with groups that had a humanitarian focus for healing and that supported your beliefs. That Solar Eclipse was at 15 degrees Capricorn travelling with Pluto at 20 degrees Capricorn (transformation of society) and ruled by Saturn at 11 degrees Capricorn (personal responsibility). But we aren’t complete with that yet. Our current Full Moon at 24 degrees Capricorn is also travelling with Pluto Rx at 21 degrees Capricorn, the South Node at 17 degrees Capricorn, and Saturn, the ruler of this Lunar Eclipse at 16 degrees Capricorn Rx. The Rx is retrograde motion. Looking within to heal and release limitation and restriction that creates resistance to true change. Capricorn is the sign of society but also our Sacred Purpose.
So we are in transition. Mercury is retrograde in Leo/Cancer (July 07 to 31). My thinking mind decided to take a vacation. I am focusing on just being in the now. Venus has now become invisible as she makes her transition from Morning Star (warrior) to Evening Star (at-oneness within). She is in the Underworld (inner transformation). She begins her Evening Star journey when she meets the Sun on Aug 14 at 21 degrees Leo (the compassionate heart) and emerges from the Underworld on Sept 20 when she becomes visible again as Evening Star. And we are still under the beams of the Jupiter in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces Fourth Quarter Square (revision and realignment) until the end of Sept. Capricorn is also associated with the theme of revision and realignment.
Although Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is completion energy this one asks us to keep doing our inner work on our path to wholeness. The next Solar Eclipse is on 26 Dec 2019 at 04 degrees Capricorn and begins a new cycle. The theme will be endings, completions, and transformations. It opens the door into 2020. It is going to be an amazing time.
There is no story this time. I think Snowy Owl and Shooting Star are on vacation too. We will be back for the Leo New Moon of July 31. That night Mercury moves direct. Hooray!!!
