Full Moon Forecast/Eclipse

As I watch the Full Moon appear in the cerulean sky, the beauty and light are astonishing. The fireflies rise like tiny lanterns, and the trees sway in the sky.

The Full Moon in Capricorn and Partial Eclipse carry a higher, more loving vibration for those who can tap into it. With Sun in Cancer (the mother, the home, and sea) and Moon in Capricorn (father, earth, and outer structure), the old masculine and feminine energies are brought to the surface for transformation. 

As the New World rises, we clear old frequencies and open to embrace the beauty of a new reality. All of us are releasing personal karma as we discard old perceptions about life, love, and the male/feminine energies-as we move to embrace the “new”. It may take time to create alignment with the new wave of energy, but it’s part of a new beginning.

The eclipse occurred at 5:38 pm ET  on July 16 with a wide array of opposing energies for dissemination and balance. (Opposite energies are necessary to live in duality-and are important in alchemy.)
Sun conjuncts (close to) Mercury (communications) in Leo, and Venus (love, relationships) in Cancer. Sun conjunct Mercury increases the focus of intellect, and Sun conjunct Venus amplifies emotions concerning love.

Sun is in opposition with Saturn (karma, time, structure) in Capricorn and Pluto (subconscious, transformation) in Capricorn. The positive feminine feelings of Sun in Cancer are at odds with the old patriarchy of Saturn and Pluto. (Change begins in the mind and emotions, and Pluto knows how to heal the darkness of time and create a rebirth—if we allow it.)

Moon (emotions) in Capricorn is in opposition to Mercury (communications, thought) and Venus (love, relationships). Emotions and thoughts may seem loud and chaotic periodically. Moon conjuncts Saturn (time, karma, structure), encouraging a choice between the two aspects of Saturn—approval, money, and social status in the outer world or devotion and discipline to live in alignment with the inner world.

Mercury (thought, communications) is retrograde in Leo, a passionate, fire sign. With 5 other retrograde planets, we may feel somehow disconnected between periods of frustration with electronics! Mercury conjuncts Mars (action, masculine), and this helps in acting on our thoughts in the physical world. Mercury squares (tension) Uranus, bringing sudden reactions from the universe in relationship to our thoughts.

Venus (love, partnerships) is in opposition to Saturn (karma, time), which can make loved ones seem and/or feel cold when it’s not true. Venus in Cancer is more sensitive than usual. Venus trines Neptune (illusion, mysticism), opening our hearts to the divine.

Mars (action, male) trines Jupiter, giving strength and boldness with our desires. Mars in Leo squares Uranus (sudden change, quantum field.) With this aspect, it’s wise to become calm before taking action and to think actions through at least twice.

Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) squares (tension) Neptune (mysticism, illusion) asks for curbing optimism with creative projects. We should choose to focus on hard work—and not depend on the value of the idea.

Sun (life), Mercury (communications), and Venus (love) are opposition to Pluto, and it focuses on the healing and transformation that come from looking at false perceptions and illusions. Moon (emotions) and Saturn (limitation, karma) conjunct (close to) Pluto, and they amplify the Plutonian energy.

Mercury (communication), Mars (action), and Jupiter (good fortune) trine (harmonious) Chiron, the wounded healer. Through right communication and action, we can find the beautiful healing needed to clear our wounds.


  1. Many aspects of the chart are difficult, but there is a new, beautiful vibration that helps in moving into love. By aligning with the vibration, we can clear karma and create change.
  2. Beautiful aspects are found between Sun, Venus, and Neptune. We can more easily open our hearts and lives to the Divine.
  3. The Mother/Father (Sun in Cancer, Moon in Capricorn) energy is altering and bringing change. It’s time to revise our feelings and align with the New.
  4. Five planets and Chiron are in retrograde. It causes difficulty in seeing our way clearly, so it’s important to listen to our heart.
  5. Take time to reflect on thought/action before acting. Mercury is retrograde, and Mercury/Mars square Uranus.
