​In Review (Looking Back)

July 15-21, 2019

The Lunar Eclipse of Structure and Building

And so it’s here, the Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn following the recent Solar Eclipse in the opposite sign Cancer on July 2. This is a strong vibration due to additional planet influences as the Moon occulting both Saturn and Pluto while it opposes the Sun. At the least it’s a strong pull on emotion and outwardly there can be a number of reactions that has everyone feeling more than usually morose. This ray also affects government and government leaders as has been a strong influence all year and will continue to be that keeps pulling everyone to notice a myriad of events and circumstances that take time to sort out. As the week rolls on the Sun will connect to Mercury Retrograde when it reverses from Leo back in Cancer. This calls for being mindful and diligent when making decisions and taking steps to go forward. Setbacks are possible that cause disruption unless you’re giving yourself leeway and options. This month of eclipse energy pulls in the retrograde planet, Mercury at a pivotal point and as the month concludes July 31 there’s a second New Moon called a Black Moon. There’s a mystical element to all that happens if you take time to tap into it and use your senses to glean subtle intuitive messages.​
