The July ‘Buck‘ Full Moon Lunar Eclipse will occur on either the 4th or the 5th July 2020 (according to your timezone) at 13°37’ Capricorn. (at approx 5:30 GMT on July 5th). Under Eclipse energies were called to purge and release the emotions and energies that have been holding us back. We’re encouraged to create a heightened awareness centred around self-inflicted limitations and restrictions that deeply affect our internal selves. Lunar Eclipses offer the opportunity for rebirth and the dismantling of our shadow selves. They’re often life changing celestial events that unveil themes that we ought to address during the upcoming season.
For a lot of us, this will be an uncomfortable transition as we’re under the process of rebirth and realignment with a greater sense of direction. Here are Eclipse messages, rituals and themes for the signs (check which house the Eclipse falls into in your birth chart).
Read according to your Sun sign (ego) Moon sign (Internal self) and Ascendant (the face we show the world).
Aries. Leo. Sagittarius.
Seeking solitude in order to really get down to the core of your emotions, and to focus your energy inwards, will serve you well under the Eclipse. We’re tying up loose ends during this celestial event and closing chapters on what may have been difficult work and tough times. By exploring your sensitive nature with others, you could end up triggering reactions or the feelings of being misunderstood or confused. Remember, the understanding you seek can be found through introspection and observation. Old feelings are re-surfacing, and you may be addressing problems that you had not completely resolved yet. You may surprise yourself by how you react when faced with the resurgence of these emotions. Anger? Sadness? Frustration?
By healing these foundations, you’ll be able to rebuild a stronger sense of self, security and perspective that will aid you well in your transformation. You’re purging old ideas. People. Behaviours. Habits. Memories. Situations. And your most important reminder is to not turn back! Change is healthy, and the universe is guiding you on your course and placing you exactly where you need to be. If you feel a sense of disconnect, this is a sign that change and growth is needed from such environment.
You ought to work on your perspective under the energies of the Eclipse. Set intentions. Cleanse. Explore your deeper emotions and the reasons behind them in order to let go! This is the only way to ensure that once the shadow of the Eclipse has passed, you’re moving in the right direction and not backwards. It’s time to embrace inner healing, growth, accountability and responsibility. Whilst the universe has a great hand in where you go, you have complete power over your reactions, your perception and your emotions.
Taurus. Virgo. Capricorn.
Security is a familiar theme for you. However, under the Capricorn-Cancer influences, emotional security takes priority. This may be challenging as responsibility and practicality doesn’t often align with how we feel on the inside. You’re challenged under the Eclipse to surrender yourself to the energies of the universe rather than trying to control where you’re going and when you’re going to get there. The avoidance of addressing your feelings counts as procrastination! Additionally, it isn’t healthy for your long term growth and will affect your productive nature if you’re constantly leaving feelings unaddressed and unexplored.
You’ll be exploring emotions, triggers and sensitive areas under this Eclipse that you have perhaps left buried for a while. Maybe it’s because unpacking these feelings would take time, patience and tenderness, and you were simply prioritising. Or perhaps you just didn’t feel ready to do so. Either way, it’s time to stop putting these things off. Closing these doors with acknowledgement and acceptance will lead to the arrival of new possibilities that you’ll be able to put all of your mental, emotional and physical focus into.
You may feel as though as you’re drawn to focus on details that you cannot control about the world and your experiences, rather than the bigger picture that you can influence. Ask yourself: “What makes me feel secure? Comfortable? At Home?” But don’t just focus on what’s material and financial. Go deeper! Really take this time to explore the desires of your sensitive side and work on serving your emotional needs.
Gemini. Libra. Aquarius.
Your beliefs and ideas may change under the Eclipse, and that’s okay! Don’t fight it. Allow your mind to wander freely and release thoughts that no longer align with your transformed reality. You’re being called to embrace your sensitivity and deep healing without allowing it to dictate how you communicate with others. With the Lunar Eclipse occurring on the Capricorn-Cancer axis, there’s a relationship between what we expect of ourselves and our public image vs. our private selves and emotions. An imbalance of these factors will likely manifest as tensions, disagreements and emotional sensitivity in your personal/home life, caused by miscommunications or poor reception of shared opinions.
Mercury in Cancer at 7°28′, the planet of communication and intellect is opposite the transiting Moon (within 5.6°) and conjunct the Sun (within 6.1°). These aspects reflect tensions between your emotions and logical mind. Rather than addressing your feelings and any unhealed wounds that resurface with compassion, you may instinctively try and pick these emotions apart in order to seek an understanding and clarity. Your sensitivity and intuitive awareness is most important.
Rather than feeling split between your emotions and logic, combine the two and allow yourself to explore how you’re feeling through channels of creative expression. Combining mental stimulation with your emotional outpours will help you feel a greater sense of freedom with conveying your raw emotions. Write. Dance. Sing. Make art.
Cancer. Scorpio. Pisces.
You’re being called under the Lunar Eclipse to let go of your suppressive ideas, and break freak from all self-imposed restrictions and limitations. You’re challenged to create a higher, and more powerful, sense of awareness and self certainty that’ll carry you through the next chapter of your existence. It’s time to focus on healing that inner voice that tells you that you aren’t capable and strong. The inner voice that always seems to have an excuse for why you aren’t ready and why you aren’t as good as others.
When Uranus trines the Lunar Eclipse (within 3.0°), you may feel an overwhelming sense of restlessness and a heightened sensitivity as your mind focuses on all of the things you long to go after without hesitation. All of the words you wish you had said. The opportunities you’d wish you’d taken. The times where your reflection of the past caused extra worry and anxiety over your future. You spend so much time trying to do things the right way to meet the expectations of others. So much effort planning a route of action that is least likely to lead to failure. So much of your time is spent on thoughts and visualisations that you end up not doing anything at all.
Journaling will help you find your freedom under this eclipse. Write in order to address the source of your insecurities. The root of your excuses. The source of your self-doubt. If moving forwards means addressing re-opened wounds one last time, be prepared to take that step. Seek the comforting reassurance and support from your family and loved ones when you need it. Accept, forgive and release all emotions, energies, and thoughts that no longer serve you. This will allow space for you to be transported to where you’re meant to be at this time.
