The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 13-degrees of Capricorn takes place this evening at 9:44pm PDT. The times between eclipses is known as a wormhole, where we catapult into a new experience of our consciousness from the beginning to the end of the cycle. We are at the third and final eclipse of a most tumultuous wormhole. In some ways, this experience is over, and from another perspective, we are still in the middle of a lunar cycle, and so we will need to wait for the next New Moon on July 22nd to consider the passage we are in to be complete. That said, there is so much going on this entire year, you could think of all of 2020 as a wormhole, and we don’t come out the other side of this till the end of November at the soonest. Hang on to your hat, because the wild ride continues.
This weekend features an opportunity for an enormous purge and the letting go of anything that is ready to be released. If you are reading this, then I trust that you are already someone who is engaged in a process of self-actualization, and you will know exactly what this means for you. We each have core wounds we must process in order to inhabit our full humanity. Cancer, the mansion of the Sun right now, is where we heal and prepare; if there are wounded spaces that keep us vulnerable, in Cancer, we are treated to great safety and nurturing, so that we might do deeper healing work. However, there is always the demand in life to move powerfully, out into the world. This is the energy of the Cancer/Capricorn polarity, where we consider our own personal needs as primary (Cancer), but make sure that we are prepared to share our brilliance with the world by climbing the mountain of our own ambition (Capricorn).
What are you ready to let go of at this time? Venus, the planet that is the arbiter of every heart center of every individual on the planet has just come out of a retrograde, and is still in her third act of going over territory she has covered twice before since May. Mercury is retrograde in the sign of Cancer, and so we are also making contact with the ways that our family of origin forces us into the shape of who we are, some of which show up as wounds we must heal. In this way, we are all in a position to discover ways that our unconscious is ready to open up to more: more self-awareness, more willingness to be vulnerable, more courage when faced with intimacy, more fluidity with the giving and receiving of love, more comfort with the flow of finances and how money works, more ability to stay loving in unloving interactions. I could write on and on about matters of the heart, but you know your own heart, so glance back to the first sentence of this paragraph, and I trust that you will have plenty of answers that are right for you at this time.
This experience is also happening at the collective level. In fact, if you are a resident of the United States, this is most alarmingly accurate. The chart of the USA has the Sun at 13-degrees of Cancer. This eclipse takes place at 13-degrees of Capricorn, with the Sun at 13-degrees Cancer, an exact Conjunction. July 4th is the birthday of the United States, and for her 244th birthday, she is getting a shadow process, where we all get to dive in to our collective soul and see what murky stuff is dwelling in the collective unconscious. This is happening all over, and not one individual on the planet is left out. It’s just that in America, this is playing out as a grand projection that we can all watch unfold. Remember that the outer reflects the inner, and the same shit-show that is playing out on the public landscape is also playing out for each of us. As more individuals on the planet become self-actualized by releasing personal trauma, the greater chance we have at ushering in Peace for Humanity.
Full Moons always offer a crescendo of energy each lunar cycle. Eclipses increase this intensity by a large margin. The Sun in Cancer is already an emotional mansion to move through, and whatever level your feelings have been vibrating at during this crazy time will likely rise up to quite a climax of the wave we are currently riding. The backdrop to this lunation will ensure that. A Trine from the Moon to Uranus, the Great Awakener, means that the capacity for inspiration and sudden paradigm shifts is fully present. When Uranus touches in with harmonious geometry, miracles are possible. Of course, Uranus is always an unstable energy, even when the experience he generates is beneficial, so do not be surprised if you feel quite unbalanced over the weekend.
Also in the mix is a lot of anger, and the desire to rail against the perception of awfulness in the world. The eclipse makes a Square to Mars in Aries, who is about to connect directly with Chiron, the Great Healer in the same fire sign. The positive use of this energy is absolutely healing, because you cannot heal a deep wound without first triggering it. On the flip side of this valuable transit is just pure, unbridled rage, and there is plenty of circumstance to hang those feelings on. If you want to stay glued to the TV or social media and the illusion of this three dimensional “reality,” have at it. But do your best to remember that the feelings that are rising up may look like they are inspired by outside events, but that is actually not the case.
If your anger is being triggered this year, please remember that it was there before all of this got started. What comes up, comes up to be healed. I beg you to remember that your spiritual path is designed to wake you up to your oneness with the Universe. Everything else is an illusion, and we are charged with being in that illusion, but not of it. The Cancer end of this polarity allows us to pull in, restore, recharge, and fill our own cup. Then we must bring what we bring, and offer it to the world courtesy of the Capricorn mansion, raising the vibration on the planet with all that we do. As I write this, I am craving that last wrap-up sentence that somehow brilliantly encapsulates what we are going through, offering Hope. But I am fully on the bus with you, so in this moment, I’m at a bit of a loss. I still have all the Hope any of you could possibly need, and I have it in infinite abundance, and this I offer freely. I know in my heart that we got this, and yes, the mighty work continues. Thank you for your courage, and thank you for your service.
