The Full Moon on Tuesday, July 16, 2019, at 24 degrees Capricorn is a partial lunar eclipse. The lunar eclipse July 2019 astrology is powerful and confrontational because of close conjunction to Pluto, making this an intensely emotional lunar eclipse.
Moon conjunct Pluto brings such deep feelings that they can overwhelm you. A personal interaction or event may trigger a memory or emotion buried deeply in your subconscious. You might even become obsessed about your feelings and have trouble focusing on anything else. Dreams, visions, psychic impressions or intuitive insights may have a profound influence on your mood. Interactions with women will be particularly intense and revealing. It will energize the #MeToo Movement. It will strengthen the feminist attack on the patriarchal authority.
Sun opposite Pluto can bring some sort of crisis with your self-esteem, a relationship or an event. This may be related to abuse of power or due to a self-destructive character trait such as addiction, spying or stubbornness. Events may include the breakdown of an appliance or car, theft or violence.
The lunar eclipse will expose many dark secrets and bad behaviors. In turn, this will cause conflict and turmoil, and a dramatic transformation in relationships, society, and culture. Other planetary aspects and fixed stars point to scandal, intrigue, public disgrace, and destroyed reputations. But they also give hope that empathy and understanding will lead to lasting changes.
Moreover, Saturn is also close to the Moon.
Venus is opposing Saturn - not a good omen for love relationships. In relationships, you may have to deal with controlling and manipulative behaviours like jealousy, guilt-tripping, threats, intimidation, violence or self-harm. But on a spiritual note, worth looking into for resolution, detachment, finishing karma. Moving past earthly relationships of give-n-take from the Hara Chakra. Time to move higher in Chakra - Heart Chakra and even higher into the Higher Heart Chakra.
Venus trine Neptune is good for relaxation and daydreaming. It softens the cold Saturn influence and makes it easier to connect through empathy.
However, on a brighter note - Saturn sextile Neptune brings hope that something good will come from the strife and discord. This brings material gain from spiritual pursuits.
SUMMARY: First off, get comfortable with the idea of change and change being a good thing. Something will be eclipsed out of your life to make room for a new beginning and you will need to allow this to happen. It’s best to go with the cosmic current and wait to see what comes in with the tide before you make any major decisions. Observe, listen and know that you will be supported when you’re on board with change. Of course this may not be comfortable or easy, so you will need to be brave. Give yourself lots of breathing room to process. Most importantly, surround yourself with high vibe people and trust the eclipses to do their cosmic magic. The ECLIPSE TUNNEL shall feel like a pressure cooker as the days move deeper in the Tunnel. A Time-Warp kinda feeling as the pressure increases to boiling point. You may feel hope-less, overwhelmed for sure, depressed, stuck, suffocated, status-quo. But thru that all remember, after all its a pressurized tunnel you are walking so...what other feeling can you expect? We are all walking thru the same Tunnel so no one is alone...in fact, it is over crowded :-) Just dont step-over my toes dear...humour always helps in such times so I shall post some funny images and vidoes to keep us going without dwelling in the emotions. Yes, once again an emotional eclipse - it is a Lunar Eclipse after all.
More posts on this Eclipse shall be published here so keep a look out.
