The Full Moon in Capricorn will take place on Tuesday, July 16th at approximately 9:38 PM EDT. In addition to this being the first Full Moon of the Summer season, it is also accompanied by a partial solar eclipse! This will be a powerful Full Moon, and an ideal time to really evaluate everything in our lives, both in our inner and outer worlds. This month’s Full Moon is asking us to dive deep in many ways, espeically as it is accompanied by this eclipse, but if we are willing to do the work and really examine what is going on below the surface, there is potential for great manifestation and an energetic shift in the months to come!
More on the Partial Lunar Eclipse
The Earth will partially obscure the Moon, as it will be between the Sun and the Moon during the Full Moon on July 16th, and the Earth’s shadow may cause the Moon to appear shades of red, gray, or brown. Lunar eclipses represent looking at the “shadow self”, and they are usually present a great opportunity for self-discovery. As stated above, if we are willing to do the work and dig past the surface of things, there is amazing potential for a breakthrough, letting go of limitations, and also moving on from something that has been holding us back.
Determination, Vision, Action
These aren’t included in the title just because! The zodiac of Capricorn is associated with strength, vision (especially long-term), determination, action, as well as manifestation. We are being assisted during this time, given the strength required to really look at aspects of ourseves and/or lives that may be difficult to face; once we do this, we are then able to create a new vision for ourselves, and with that new vision, take action in order to manifest it into our experience, and overcome any obstacles that may stand in our way!
This is also an ideal time to reflect back to the New Moon on January 5th at the start of this year. This New Moon was the first one of 2019, and it took place in the zodiac of Capricorn. Six months have past, and the New Moon in Capricorn would have been a powerful time for intention setting, as it was the first one of this year, and it was in this strong Capricorn energy. As we reflect back to our intentions at that time, we now have an opportunity to really evaluate and see if/how those intentions are now manifesting and unfolding in our lives. Full Moons are generally a time to expect manifestation from previously set intentions, noticing and appreciating them in their fullness. Do we feel that these intentions have now come to fruition in our lives? If so, we can really pause and appreciate them before creating the newest vision for ourselves or how we want to refine things even more. If we feel we are not seeing the manifestation of these intentions, it may be time to really get curious, dive deep, and receive clarity as to why they are not taking physical form. What do we need to adjust, release, or bring in to really bring about our desired reality?
Even though this may seem like a challenging energy, it really is one to be embraced, trusting that we are being given what we need during this time, in this powerful eclipse season. Capricorn energy feels very warrior-like at times; tough, determined, and powerful. It is an unstoppable force when all parts of it are received and utilized. As we allow ourselves to tune in to this energy, we may discover we are much more powerful than we ever realized!
Wishing you abundant Full Moon blessings during this eclipse season!
