Closing a period of old energy. Is the moment to start creating your future! | Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn| July 4-5th, 2020
We are facing a third eclipse in a row, 5 weeks ago we had a lunar eclipse, then a solar eclipse on the solstice and now another lunar eclipse. Too much in a short period with no time to rest, just a chance for a deep breath to go deep again.
It's unusual to have 6 eclipses in a year, if you feel more tired than usual, be gentle, rest, and stop for a moment. If you are feeling more restless than usual, try to seek spaces that will bring peace of mind. Put soft music, take a long bathtub, chant a mantra, light a white candle, and close your eyes for a couple of minutes. You can generate a sacred space by just tuning-in.
We have been through a period of intense changes and these weeks the intensity might feel stronger. Mars entering his ruler Aries on June 28th announced the presence of the warrior energy in its full power. You may use it either to detach from old chains, impulsing new projects, and beginnings or to destroy driven by anger, frustration, and despair.
The sun in Cancer is opening up feelings, making us more sensitive towards any feedback, mercury retrograde increases this mood by bringing memories that may put us down, but they can also help to bring awareness of the places we are still clinging on by emotions not letting us move forward. Feel it all and then release it, cry it all and then laugh or sleep, say it all to the mirror or in a letter and then just burn it or smile at yourself in the mirror.
Saturn returning to Capricorn with conjunction to pluto intensifies the restriction, the laws, and rules.
Turn back to January and see what was happening then in your life. What was consuming your thoughts, worries, what was emotionally taking you out of your center. These same topics somehow will arise again. We need to work on these issues, this eclipse is allowing us to clean and close them once and for all. So go for it!
With so many eclipses the magnetic shield of the earth is thinner, meaning it’s easier to receive energy in all its forms in a more direct way. Try to focus on what brings your energy high, because in that to which you put your energy into, will tend to be amplified and increased.
The best way of navigating this intense phase of the year is by tuning to venus, now direct, this means with love, and in Gemini which is about your close environment, the people surrounding you on your daily basis. It is about laughing and seeking moments of joy. Appreciating the daily aspects of your life and not trying to reach high standards. Get rid of old Capricorn patterns, "the old you" must go, your squared mind must go, your traditional way of doing things must be resignified. Look where Capricorn at 13´35 falls on your chart. With the full moon eclipse on the south node, there is a feeling of ending, of completing a cycle in this part of your life. Don’t fight against it. North node in Gemini is calling for renewal and this eclipse is closing a period of old energy. Is the moment to start creating your future!
Anyhow, blocking the heart chakra is not the best option. We block love through fear, and this atmosphere of uncertainty is trying to increase these fears.
It's ok to say you are afraid, we all are at some level. But it is also ok to say “I want this for my life”. Is the moment to follow the call from the soul and the heart, even if you feel you are being rejected or misunderstood. Face the fear of being yourself and you will see the magic.
Stop trying to be on time, time is changing. Get inside your bathtub, close your eyes, and feel how time fades, there is only the present moment, there is only the warm feeling of the essence going through your skin. Give space by feeling stillness and let the energy of water, which is pure love nurture every cell of your body. No need to rush, just feel, and give yourself to the process. We recommend incorporating the Full Moon Receive collection of bath bombs and bath tea to your ritual.And by the way, let's bring up that this lunar eclipse falls on Independence Day for the US. This will be particularly important for its impact. There are no casual coincidences in the cosmic world.
